and the winner is

Congratulations Mira Heitz - you're the winner of the lovely necklace from Biko Jewellery. Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway. I really enjoyed hearing everyone's goals for the year, so inspiring and thoughtful. Mira's goal is to expand her kids clothing business and quit her job to focus on it full time. I hope that becomes a reality for you this year.

I also have to offer up a big thanks to Corrine from Biko Jewellery. Corrine is someone who has followed her heart and created a successful business doing what she loves. If you haven't done so already, check out her new spring and summer line for 2011. Adding one of her pieces to your wardrobe would instantly update your look for the new season. Corrine will also be taking part in the One of a Kind Show happening this spring in Toronto so make sure to drop by and say hello to her there.

one year and a giveaway!

It's hard to believe but one year ago today I decided to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and start writing this blog. Looking back on my first post I had no idea what I was getting myself into and was still struggling with simple things like how to upload photos, link text, and what the hell a trackback, permalink, and widget was!  I never imagined the places it would take me or the people I would meet. It has been a tremendously rewarding experience and I'm looking forward to another inspiring year. As a little thank you to everyone who stops by here I'm offering up a lovely giveaway. Corrine from Biko has generously donated one of her beautiful, handcrafted Heart Filagrae Locket necklaces. The perfect accessory for this valentine month. Biko's modern nostalgic jewellery has been featured in In Style Magazine, LOU LOU magazine, Fashion magazine, and Chatelaine magazine to name a few and was also featured during L'Oreal Fashion Week. Insert a keepsake photo into this heart shaped locket and away you go!

To enter the giveaway, just let me know one goal you hope to achieve this year. It doesn't have to big just something you think you could achieve by this time next year. You have until Sunday, February 13th at midnight (EST) to enter. I'll announce the winner on Valentine's Day. To see more of the Biko Jewellery spring and summer collection click here.
