Nyquil and Pretty Bracelets.

There's nothing like starting the week off with a cold--two thumbs down.   

And then finding out that your email deleted every single email that you needed, just because.

If I had more than two thumbs, they would all would be pointing down. 

While I curl up in my bed and down Nyquil and gatorade and pretend the world doesn't exist all day, you guys can enter to win a really gorgeous bracelet from my friend Katie, and hopefully have a better day than me!

Aren't they gorgeous?!

Katie not only has the cutest ad in all of blogland {see proof below} but she also has an amazing etsy shop full of her own personal designs! 

What inspired you to start your etsy shop?

A Lil Bit Fancy or ALBF came about while I was on maternity leave with my 2nd daughter Willow. I am an ex bikini designer that thought she could leave the design biz in the past but fate just had something else in mind. With some left over chain, a strand of rhinestones and a little leather, ALBF was born!! Each and every bracelet is made by hand and with lots of love. For fear of another failed design venture I told myself this is only a "Hobby!" Listed my designs online and hoped for the best. 3 days after Willow was born my "Little Hobby" exploded and has been selling like crazy ever since

Describe your shop. 

My shop is a bracelet lovers paradise! I have A "Lil" somethin for everyone! Lots of colors, shapes and sizes. I cover all the basis in terms of style. Whether you like dainty accessories or a bolder look I have got something just for you!

What do you like to do when you're not working on your shop?

When I'm not working on bracelets I am with my girls. Olivia 4 and Willow 1. I am  full time Mama and love every moment of it. Olivia is actually my little helper when I'm hard at work on orders. She likes to sit next to me and make her own "Pretties." I am also a hair stylist and specialize in bridal so my weekends are filled with beautiful brides at beautiful locations all over Monterey. I am so grateful to be blessed with a life full of lots of fun and creativity! 

Can't wait for the giveaway?  I don't blame you.  Use code "CHELSEA15" to get 15% off your order!

  3. Beautiful! I love the colorful bracelets displayed above. They are both adorable and can easily go with any outfit. Recently, I found somewhat similar stuff on an online jewelry website I bought a bracelet with a silver chain and sparkling red colored beads. It is one of my favorite jewelry pieces that I have in my wardrobe.
