Test Title 1



CLOSED - {giveaway} noonday

i am so excited to kick off 2012 w/ a fantastic giveaway!

mary of the sugar mountain is one of those amazing blogger blessings i mentioned in my post yesterday. besides full-time wife + mommy of 2, she works as an ambassador for the noonday collection.

have you heard of the noonday collection?

the noonday collection offers fashion forward accessories for you and your home handcrafted by artisans from around the world that receive a living wage for their work. every item is handcrafted in style, with love, and creates a pathway out of poverty for artisans around the world. in addition, proceeds go towards placing orphans in forever families.

just a taste of their awesome collection:

{clockwise from top}

1 // the funky paper beads necklace ... 74" long necklace made from individually recycled paper beads by handmade by african style - a group in uganda. lead designer and organizer jalia and her husband mentor and teach the men and women while they create these exclusive pieces.

2 // the dainty everyday necklace ... brass and stone beads hang from a 16" chain. handmade by a group in india that creates avenues of employment for economically disadvantaged artisans. the group also has a strong commitment to combating child labor in the manufacturing sector.

3 // the bouquet necklace ... a bundle of fresh cut glass beads hang from a 23" long brass chain. made by the same group in india that makes the dainty everyday necklace.

the entire collection is fantastic. look stylish while changing lives! each time you wear your piece is an opportunity to share the noonday story!

Oh my. Do I have to comment three times if I did all of the above?
I cannot get my eye off the bouquet necklace. I am definitely in the market for a long and chunky piece. I also like the triangular necklace from the website.
So excited for your awesome giveaway to start 2012! I hope you get something from Noonday too ;)

Aha, I *thought* I was probably going to have to comment 3x. So, here is number 2.

This is my third comment. Trying to come up with interesting things to say! Let's call this the "I tweeted" comment. Even though you already saw it ;) I like the funky paper necklace but I went bananas and got everyone (including myself) 31 Bits (www.31bits.com) swag for Christmas so I now have something similar!

Taylor Running said...

Blair, I keep finding more jewelry I love on Noonday's page. I love their mission! I have shared your giveaway on FB, liked your page and I also shared via twitter. I like the Funky Paper Bead Necklace and the Basket Earings. I hope a lot of people check out noondays page. The jewelry is beautiful and the cause is wonderful!!!

Girl, you always impress me with how you juggle work and your blog. I've never done anything like this before (entering to win a contest like this), but I thought "what the heck. it's a new year." Not to mention, I absolutely adore the fact that you're helping to spread the word about empowering women through your connect with the noonday collection! Bravo lady!

Ps. I love the bouquet necklace

Entry 1: I have the Lacey Leaf ear rings and the Zoe necklace. I love them both and get compliments EVERY time I wear them. My favorite piece of jewelry on Mary's website...well, that's hard...I want A LOT of different pieces. If I had to choose, I would choose the Antique bronzed ear rings or the filigree dangles, or maybe the cascading falls necklace. There are a lot of great pieces. That was a tough question ;-)
