Giveaway Time…Monogram Crossbody via Grateful Bags


September 5, 2012

Yall, have I got something fun for you! Remember a bit ago when I hosted a fun purse giveaway and we all got excited…well, this is one is even better because it’s perfect for gamedays AND it’s monogrammed. Have I gotten your attention yet?

Let me introduce you to Grateful Bags, a line designed by Jenny Ross, because she saw a need for personalized, versatile accessories with the ability to make it your own. Each bag is customized based on your unique preferences…and you can add your custom monogram for a fun pop! You get to choose the font and color, too which is even more fun so you can interchange the acrylic monogram whenever you like.

Jenny has graciously offered to give one of my fabulous readers their choice of any color of the Zoey Crossbody bag, perfect for fall and football! It comes in tons of colors (my obvious fav being orange), so you can personalize to your liking.

All you have to do to enter is the following:
1. Repin this link on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/pin/373587731558722261/ 
2. Leave a comment with your favorite football team/school and what color purse you’d choose if you won.

The contest starts today and lasts until next Wednesday. I’ll announce the winner the following day. Good luck!

P.S. for those interested in ordering from the site, Jenny is offering free shipping to Hello! Happiness readers…simply use the code HHFREESHIP at checkout!
