Be kind, choose joy, find your love compass

The Pretty in Pink Bucket list giveaway is still happening! By donating, you’re helping someone mark something off of their bucket list and bringing a smile to the face of someone battling breast cancer. Donate – and then share it with your friends!


There are some awesome prizes available for those who donate, including: Stationary products, Aprons and Dish towels, art prints, and these items for your home that I am swooning over!

Fiber and Water

Fiber and Water donated one of their Love Compass pillows (valued at $35). I love the burlap and this classy design. Such a wonderful piece to have in your home, or to gift to a friend, or newlywed couple! They also have some adorable burlap prints in their shop too, you should definitely check it out!

Simply Said Stitches

Simply Said Stitches donated this pillow (valued at $35), which I think sends a great message. Everyday we wake up and we can make a choice on how we’re going to tackle the day. By choosing joy, happiness or a positive attitude, you set yourself up for a great day. I think it also speaks to the holiday season which is always full of joy.

A new addition to the giveaway are these ornaments from ShanC Studio (valued at $28). Since everyone is decorating mode, what better thing to win than a set of these cute doves to hang on your tree?

Secret Swap!

It might seem a little early to be discussing the holidays, but Christmas is only 7 weeks (+2 days) away! Hard to believe, right? I’m with you on that one. This year has literally flown by. After looking for our traditional Christmas ornament (and the first one as a married couple) I had an idea to do something fun to celebrate the holidays this year …

Secret SwapThat’s right – a holiday ornament exchange. I’m leaving it open as to whether you purchase or make the ornament. There are a ton of ideas on Pinterest and Etsy! Go with whatever holiday ornament you think will make someone’s holiday season merrier! The exchange will be a secret, you won’t know who or where your ornament is coming from until it arrives!

So here’s how it works:

1. By November 15th: Leave your name and 5 words that describe you (e.g.: Ashleigh runner who just got married)
(*this will give your partner an idea of what type of gift/ornament you might like)

2. By November 15th: Email me ( with your mailing address (this will only be given to the person who is sending you an ornament)

3. All ornaments will be mailed by November 29th (the day after Thanksgiving when it is acceptable to begin decorating for the holidays)

4. HAVE FUN! What a great opportunity to brighten someone’s day, make a new friend and spread the love during the holidays!



Be sure to share this with your friends, the more the merrier! And if you’re trying to save a little during the holiday season, join me in No-Shop November!
