Two Birthdays and a Great, Big Giveaway

Friday, September 9, 2011

(ASOS Maxi skirt, Target Merona Chambray shirt, Nine West wedges, Vintage bag)


This is a huge weekend for me...I'm turning 31 on Sunday, the Kristina J. blog just turned one and the fact that I've already been blogging for a year is harder to believe than the fact that I'm on the home stretch to forty! 
Over the past year, I've been overwhelmed by the awesomeness and creativity of all the great people I've met through blogging.  You've all been inspiring to me, encouraging about my book and designs, and enthusiastic about my twisty ideas.  Thanks for that...there really aren't words. Give yourselves a round of applause, 'cuz you're just that awesome!



I love the community of people surrounding me, so to celebrate both of these occasions, I'm pleased as punch to bring you a gift card to J.Crew for $100 (just in time for new coat season, yes?).


You must be a follower of Kristina J. for this giveaway, 'cuz after all, this is me saying thank you to my readers.

If you'd like addition entries:
1) Follow via Bloglovin'
2) Post to your page (twitter, facebook, blog...)
3) Like Kristina J. to Facebook

As always, much love, mah dears..
