i ♥ shabby apple! CLOSED!

Hello, Sweet Friends! Hopefully you are enjoying {or about to enjoy} your summer holiday!  
This time of year reminds me why I wanted to be a teacher in the first place... ;)

I have a serious question to ask you all:
Do you buy yourself new clothes for back-to-school?

I am hoping that the answer is "Yes," because I think you all deserve it... and it will make me feel better about my own back-to-school shopping tendencies... teachers need new clothes, too! I love starting the new year with new stuff!! It makes the sting of summer ending just a little bit better.

I have another serious question to ask you:
Have you heard of Shabby Apple?

Yay for you if you have!!! And... if you haven't, well you are in for a treat! I love Shabby Apple and their unique style. I also love how nearly everything in their store is appropriate to wear to work/school. 


Here are a few things on my current wishlist:

 
Shabby Apple is offering a $75.00 Gift Card to one lucky reader! 
{Ummm.... Can I pick myself? I proofread my blog... do you think that counts?}

How to Enter:
{BTW: the first two entries are mandatory, the other two are just a bonus!}

1. Check out Shabby Apple's website {here} & leave a comment telling me how you would spend the $75.
2. "Like" Shabby Apple on FB {here} and leave another comment telling me that you did.
3. Follow my blog... and tell me that you did in a comment.
4. Follow me on FB {here} and again, tell me that you did in a comment.

Please Note: Contestants must have a USA shipping address to be eligible for entry.

I will announce the winner on Thursday, June 14th! Good Luck! :)

  1. Hi Lindsey. I've never heard of Shabby Apple before but I agree, everything looks cute and work appropriate. If I won I'd go for one of the dresses or the pink Cabana bathing suite- I never thought a one piece could be so pretty and stylin!! I'm a long time follower of your blog and I just liked Shabby Apple on Facebook :)

  5. Hi there. I have never heard of Shabby Apple either, but the have some cute stuff. Definitely appropriate for teachers. The one thing that I really liked was the Coco Bean Shirt Dress (it was a brown dress). I like the look and style :) Thanks for the chance to win.
