200th Post Celebration: Reader Survey + My Biggest Giveaway Yet!

Here we are! Post #200! It really feels like I was just celebrating my 100th post, and on Monday I shared your all's favorite 7 posts since then. Now as promised, I'm back today with a surprise for you guys!

But first: I've been wanting to do this for a while, and thought why not celebrate 200 posts with a reader survey? I'd love for you to take a couple minutes to fill this out. And if you do, there'll be a reward for you at the end! (If you complete the survey and don't see a reward, please let me know.) And, there will be an extra perk for answering this later on in this post!

Now that that's done, if you want to use your reward, here's where to go. :)

And now! I had to celebrate 200 posts with a giveaway, right? As I mentioned on Monday, I don't really have a blogiversary, so this is my version of it and we are celebrating accordingly.

Yep, my biggest giveaway ever! Here we are in that in-between time of the seasons (at least here in NC), so there's a little bit of both in this Katya Valera giveaway:

1~ A chunky, silver tone summer rose on wide silver tone chain. Perfect for layering or wearing alone.

2~ Silver plated dangle earrings that I like to call coffee (or tea) lover earrings. And the best I can tell, that's every. single. one of you reading this. ;)

3~ Fall-colored clay roses and mum on an antique-look silver tone, asymmetric heart charm hanging from silver tone chain.

4~ And finally, a burnt red-orange geometric, wood-look charm on long, silver tone chain. Great for layering!

You'll be set for fall with these four handmade pieces from Katya Valera! Or keep a couple and give a couple as gifts now, or get ahead on Christmas shopping! And yes, you'll see that if you filled out the survey, you get more entries!

This giveaway is open only to the US and Canada (sorry!) and will end Thursday, Oct. 9 at 12:00 AM EST. I will contact the winner by email, and the winner will have 24 hours to respond, at which point I'll pick a new winner. I will verify the winning entry and and reserve the right to disqualify an invalid entry.

Okay, survey, giveaway, oh and one more thing in honor of the milestone: 
I've got a brand new about page, so be sure to check it out! :)

  1. Fall is my favorite, it's neither too cold nor too hot. Leaves are beautiful and everything gets a bit more atmospheric.

  2. I love fall because with fall comes cooler weather, and a change in my wardrobe. I get to wear scarves, boots, cardigans and jeans. And it also means the holidays are approaching and hopefully I will get to see my family for the holidays. (: I have entered and my email is perezashley60@hotmail.com
    Thank you.

  3. To choose between summer and fall is almost impossible. I LOVE LOVE summer's hot weather, and going to the beach. But I much prefer the fall fashion and pumpkin everything in the fall. Crossing my fingers!

  4. I love Fall the best considering the heat of summer is not my friend ! I can not breathe in the heat ! Fall I finally get to get out the house and enjoy the outdoors!

  5. You know how much I love your jewelry!! :) BIG fan of this giveaway! ;)

  6. Fall is my favorite season! This is an awesome giveaway :)
