Holiday Giveaway: Collaboration Over Competition + The Best Sales Right Now

Happy Monday! Sometimes I feel like blogging can get competitive as we try to grow our social media channels. One thing I always try to remember is collaboration over competition. When I started this blog about a year ago, I never knew the friendships it would bring. I have met some of my favorite ladies from blogging and it has been a true blessing. Two ladies in particular that I have connected with are Courtney from The Finishing Touch OKC and Abi from Abigail Says. They are both OKC bloggers and are as sweet as can be. I don’t know if I would have continued this blog this long without the support of the ladies I’ve connected with.

With this being said, I am excited to announce that I am doing a holiday giveaway with Courtney and Abi. We are parterning with some fun local boutiques: Mode Boutique, Pink Petal and The Blush Boutique  to giveaway $50 gift cards. These gift cards can also be used online for you non-local OKC ladies. Head to my Instagram to enter. You won’t want to miss it.

Also, I cannot believe Christmas is only 2 weeks away. With it being right just around the corner, it’s really time to get your holiday shopping done. I am about 90% done, and I will be doing my last minute shopping today. Luckily today is Green Monday and there are many great deals going on (check out my favorites at the end of this post).

      Hi Terri! Thank you so much, they really have been so supportive and people like you motivate me too 🙂 thank you for your support always. I ended up deleting my first post and deciding to save it, so I could share this one 🙂 I will share the other on Thursday.

    I’m still somewhat new to blogging so it’s great to know there are meaningful opportunities to make connections with others out there! I wondered if the sales codes you noted are just for the US, or would they be valid in Canada also? Thanks!

      Absolutely! Meeting other bloggers makes it worth it. I know some of the codes are valid in Canada too just maybe not the free shipping will work. It should have a little information on each site to explain where they are valid 🙂

    I still have so much shopping to do. I have no idea why I continue to wait so late each year.

      I do the same thing. I don’t know why I do either. I still have to get two gifts and I’m worried now.
