My VERY FIRST Give Away!

I cannot tell you how excited I am to be doing my very first give away! And I am even more excited because Jessica at Live Beautiful has partnered with me for this event!! You may remember that I featured her site a few Saturdays ago! I love that she is a Mom who is making a go of it in the business world while promoting the beauty that every woman has and she is also a photographer, how cool is that!

So what are we giving away and how do you enter? We are giving away one of her handmade totes and a Live Beautiful tee shirt! I own one of each and love them both! I carry the tote as a purse and it is absolutely perfect because it holds everything I need when I leave the house including diapers and wipes for the little diva! It has a cute pocket sewn on the front that I use for my cell phone and keys! I love it and will be buying another on in a different color soon actually I think one of the beach totes will be my next purchase! (Happy early Birthday to me)! We will have two winners: One will win the hand made tote and the other the Live Beautiful tee shirt! This is the a close up of the fabric of my bag! I love the brown and the blue together!

Here is a photo of my bag! I use it everyday and I LOVE it! Jessica puts a lot of love in these totes and let me tell you, they are made to last! They have to be with the way I carry and toss my bags around!

This beautiful lady is Jessica, the creator and muscle behind Live Beautiful! She is also a photographer, a wife and a mother of one with one on the way! Wow, she is a multitasker in every sense of the word!! Live Beautiful items can be found in Franklin, TN at posh maternity store Pickles and Ice Cream, Bokko Designs at the Factory, and at the Henpeck Market. Heat Relaxers available at the Stage Station in Seeley Lake, MT.

The tee shirt is cool in brown with pink lettering that sparkles! I love it and get tons of compliments on the shirt and the bag when I go out and about! So now to the important part: How to enter! The first step is a must before you can do the extras!

1. Go to Jessica's site Live Beautiful and from there click over to her Etsy site and then come back and tell me in a comment what fabric you would pick for your bag should you win! Please also leave your contact information (email addy) so I can get in touch with you if you win!

Pretty easy, huh? Now if you want some extra entries here is what you need to do (be sure to leave a seperate comment for each thing you do).

1. Follow my blog. If you already follow just leave a comment telling me so.
2. Follow Jessica's blog. Again, if you are already a follower please comment and tell me.

Ok I went there and clicked on the tote and purse link but could only find one bag. It was Amy Butler Coral Morning Glory I think. I didnt see anywhere to choose from different fabrics. I tried I swear.

Congrats on your first giveaway!
