Blogaversary and a Giveaway!

Today is a day of firsts and I'm so excited about it!!! It's my FIRST Blogaversary! Whoohoo! On one hand I can't believe it's already been a year since I started blogging, but on the other hand I feel like I've known a lot of my blog friends for way longer than a year! I started blogging because I've always been bad at writing in a journal and I needed a way to get my feelings out. I had no clue that I would have actually kept with the whole blogging thing this long:)

In order to celebrate my blogaversary, I'm going to show you the fun jewelry I got in Toledo last month at For Love. (If your mall has a For Love store...please shop there all the time for me since I have to stock up each time I visit my parents!) Then I'm going to do my FIRST giveaway of a cute cocktail ring from For Love!!!

First off, lets get one thing straight... I know that the pictures are horrible! I had bad lighting and don't have a fancy camera. Second of all, please excuse my lack of a manicure and the fact that my hands look way ugly this close up in pictures! I'm not a hand model! OK, on with the show!

First are these cute rings. This ring is my absolute favorite right now! It just seems to go with everything and is a great size! It was $3.80!!
This ring is a dark metal color and I just love it! It seems to go with anything and is nice and small for an "everyday ring". It was $3.80.
This ring is a bit big but I think it's fun for something different! I never wear gold, but I'm trying to integrate it into a couple outfits, so I needed a cute gold ring. It was the most expensive thing I bought! It was $7.80. And yes, I realize it takes up my entire hand.
This ring is super fun! All of the little silver balls move around and kinda jingle. Not great to wear to work but fun for a night out! This was $3.80.
Next is this cute gold bracelet. Again it's a bit over the top but fun for a night out:) It was $5.80. (Don't you love how my arm looks like a ghost?) I am loving big earrings like these! I've been wearing them with my scarves and they help me feel trendy even if I'm not:) These silver earrings were $4.80.
Some gold earrings to go with my gold ring and bracelet:) I wore these to church this morning with a brown sweater and loved them:) They were $3.80.
These are a bit heavy but I think they are worth the "pain":) They were $5.80.
I got this cute headband (but I have yet to wear it...I have to find the perfect place!) I can't remember how much it was but I know it was between $5-$7.

I mean, how can you not go crazy in an accessory store with prices like that??

And last but not least, I'm giving away this cute ring (sorry the picture is blurry I was having technical difficulties!) It is silver with a pearl in the middle and is a size 7. (I bought it and got it home and I realized I grabbed the wrong size and this one is way too big. For Love doesn't take returns, but the next time I was in town, I got one in my size and I love it and get TONS of compliments on it!) Please remember that my hands are freakishly small (seriously...I have to wear kids gloves it's ridiculous!) so it probably won't look quite as bulky on your hand:)
In order to be entered for the drawing, leave me a comment! About anything:) (That goes for you lurkers out there too who never leave comments!)
