Slow Start & A Giveaway!


Morning loves! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine was wonderful but I'm having a very lazy morning today. Too bad I have to get on off to work...

Yesterday I spent the day with my niece and took her to the Jonas Brothers concert last night. Yes I said Jonas Brothers. In the pouring rain in an outdoor venue nonetheless. And it poured the entire concert. Thank goodness for ponchos. I guess. I'm still waterlogged this morning. Plus I didn't get home until pretty late so that explains my sluggishness this morning.

But I do have some exciting news to talk about this morning. It's giveaway time! The wonderful people over at DesignerApparel.com are offering a wonderful prize to followers of The Alternative Wife. If you're not familiar with DesignerApparel.com let me fill you in. They are a leading shopping search engine for designer apparel and accessories with hundreds of designer brands {YSL, Gucci, Fendi, Prada, Burberry, Dior & Marc Jacobs to name a few}. I've been perusing it over the past few months and the thing I love about it is the ease and convenience of shopping by brand, category or even specific need. They even have a Mother of the Bride Dresses section. I so wish I knew of this last year while shopping with my mother-in-law for a dress for our wedding. We searched department stores and bridal boutiques alike but she had such a difficult time finding something that would work for her. This would have made the experience much easier.

So I know you're all wondering what you can win, right? Well here it is, Betsey Johnson's Bow Pendant! Cute right? I'm so excited to give you the opportunity to win this!



So now onto the details....how you can win!

A wonderful giveaway, I will definitely have to check out their site - it sounds like a place I might be able to spend far too much time. :)

I must say, you are one amazing aunt - a concert in the rain. I have a feeling it will be something your niece won't soon forget.
