Happy Birthday to Me (and You)!


Guuuuuuyyyys!  Look!  My internets are back today, just in time for my [deep breath] 30th birthday!  It’s been a craaaaaaazy week at work (I got home today at 8:00am!  Eek!), but I’m determined to celebrate even if I’m a little sleepy today!

I had grand plans to unveil a brand-new party dress today, but with the crazy week that I’ve had, I just couldn’t get it done.  There was a late night earlier in the week when I was frantically working on it even though I knew I’d never finish before the weekend, and I caught myself thinking up compromises and shortcuts to make it work and realized that I wouldn’t be happy with any dress I slapped together shoddily.  So, we’re pumping the brakes on that operation and I’ll be back eventually with a dress that I’m proud of (hopefully).

Brass Tribal Necklace

In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to do a little birthday giveaway!  I couldn’t decide what to give you guys, but this morning I received my necklace from Stephanie‘s Etsy shop, Native Clutter, and loved it so much that I thought I’d offer you a piece from her new collection!  Hop on over to Native Clutter and pick out your favorite piece, then leave a comment below for a chance to win.  I’d love to know what your favorites are!  I’ll accept entries until Tuesday, November 13th at 11:59pm, then I’ll pick a winner at random!

Grey Smooth Quartz Briolette Earrings

* I’m not sponsored by Stephanie or anything like that.  🙂  I’ve just been a fan of her blog for a long time and I’m so excited to support her new venture!

** That said, if I was a celebrity, I’d line up ridiculous endorsement deals with shameless abandon!  I’d shill for exercise machines (hopefully while wearing some kind of goofy warm-up suit), my own brand of hot sauce, President’s Day sales at local mattress stores, you name it!  7-Eleven, are you listening?  I’ll be your international Slurpee spokesperson!

  1. 8 am?! You sound like a grad student! I bet you’re paid more than one though… hopefully! I love that you’re supporting a blogger’s new adventure while giving something to your readers on your birthday. I love all of her jewelry (and have checked it out – gorgeous!), but I think you should pick someone else to win since I’ve been feeling very lucky of late as is.


  2. Happy Birthday Dude!! Tell work to stop being a jerk and let you off at a decent hour ;p
    The Brass Tribal Necklace is my favorite but I’m more likely to wear the Triangle Pendant.


  3. Happy, happy birthday! Dirty thirty, woohoo!!

    I love that Grey Quartz Bib Necklace. Actually, it’s absolutely nothing like I’ve ever worn, but I probably need to step outside the box every once in a while, eh?


  4. Belated happy birthday! I’m so glad to have discovered your blog and I look forward to seeing what fabulousness you come up with this next year. I’m not entering the giveaway, but I do love those pieces, especially the necklace!
