Dancing Jillian AND {Giveaway!!}

I have no words.  Simply...adorable.



Okay...I lied.  That is just not like me, right?  No words?  Yeah, right.

My favorite part of Jillian's first day of dance ever...  She walked in to the room which was filled with older girls and the littles combined.  She squeaked her little bottom right in between two older girls and started copying the stretches they were doing.  So sweet.  It is going to be a fun year.  I promise to try not to be a "dance mom."  We'll see.  That bun, those shoes, the pink...I LOVE it!  So glad she did too.



So...I am super excited to have another fun giveaway for my followers!  

In my jewelry box, I find that I have a few simple, go-to pieces that go with every outfit and are easy to wear everyday.  In fact, sometimes the necklace or bracelet that I wore all day, doesn't make it back into the jewelry box...for a week.  Maybe I'm just too lazy to even take it off?  Or maybe, it's because a simple, classic piece is so versatile...there is no need to take it off!

Well, that's why I was so excited for Yameyu to be featuring the next giveaway.  All of her handmade pieces are simple, feminine, and modern.  What is also awesome about Yameyu?  She was inspired by her mother to begin crafting this gorgeous jewelry.  I'm all about Mom Love!

"Inspired since childhood, I explored my own creativity and found designing jewelry gave me so much pleasure. When I was a child, most weekends were spent visiting fashion galleries and jewelry stores with my mother and aunt. My mother made me custom dresses and accessories that were the envy of my friends! I have always admired my mother’s great sense of style."
