Well peeps, this is probably the most special giveaway I’ve ever done, because it involves one of the most special people in my life – my BFF. :)

And when I say BFF, I mean, my real, true, I’ve known her for 25 years, best friend. (And I had to count that out a few times because, really, there is no way we’re old enough for it to have been 25 years. Yipes.)

I’ve got lots of women I consider to be my best friends – some from high school, some from college, some from work.

But Erin and I have been best friends since 6th grade and have been through everything together. From our undying love of NKOTB since then back then, to marching band rehearsals in high school, her family taking me in and loving me like their own, college years spent hours apart but still close, marriages, babies, the very good and the very bad, she’s been my one:



She’s one of the best people I know and one of the hardest working. Erin has been an elementary teacher for about 14 years now and if you know a teacher you know the special kind of person that requires. She’s an ahhhhmazing mommy, an awesome wife and the BEST friend anyone could ever hope for.

She took on a second job last year (told you – she works her tail off) and that’s why we’re here today. :) Erin has been an advisor for Lia Sophia for almost a year now:

I LOVE this jewelry, and now it’s an awesome perk that she sells it. ;) I’ve accumulated quite a few of their pretties and wanted to share a few that I have and a few I may have to add to my collection.

They have EVERYTHING – really. I’ll share a few of the basics -- these bracelets are all super fun (as always, you can click on each pic to get to the item):

I especially love the aqua and magenta ones for summer! How fun! And sassy!

They have a HUGE selection of necklaces – these are just a few of my favorites:



I LOVE that As You Wish pendant on the upper left! I have the Natural Charm on the middle bottom (love that you can wear it long or toggle it to wear it short) and the Reflection on the bottom right is so FUN and dainty and sparkly.

And of course, there are the earrings. I’m an earrings girl – I can go out with next to no makeup, but I at least like to have earrings on. I’m weird.

I own each one of these:


One is for a night out, one is a little more demure and one is just a good hoop. Everybody needs a go-to hoop, don’t you agree? :) (About half of my earrings are hoops, I can’t get enough of them.)

Well because my BFF rocks, we are giving away TWO $50 credits to her Lia Sophia shop this weekend! Yes, I know. She is the bees knees.

How perfect for Mother’s Day! I know it’s too late to arrive as a gift, but ummm, hello? The best gift is sometimes the one you buy for yourself, am I right? So you new mommas, seasoned mommas, grandmommas, soon-to-be mommas, wifes or if you are just plain FEMALE, you deserve it. :)

I said so. So it is true.

There’s an awesome special running this month – if you buy two items (anything!), you get a third half off. And that half off comes off the MOST expensive piece of jewelry. AND, if you take advantage of that offer, you can also get up to three more bracelets or necklaces for half off.

Whooty HOO, that is awesome! If you have any questions, please feel free to email Erin – you can contact her here or using her email that is listed at the top of the web page. (You may need to click on “browse our jewelry” when you first get to the site, then enter “Erin Merrill” to look up the hostess. From there you are able to order easily.)

Here’s how to enter to win $50 to spend as you wish at Lia Sophia:
1. Leave a comment here. What do you have planned for Mother’s Day weekend?

2. Visit the Erin’s Lia Sophia site here. Check out the jewelry by clicking “by catalog” or the type of jewelry on the left. Take a look around, then come back here to let us know the item you love the most. **Again, if it asks you to enter a party hostess, enter “Erin Merrill.”

* You can enter one or both times – it’s up to you! Both options are not mandatory to win.

* Remember if you comment anonymously or you have a private blog, please include your email address in each entry, and spell it out with “at” and “dot” to avoid any spammy emails coming your way.

This giveaway is open to US residents only and will be open till this Monday, May 14 at noon EST.

I hope every one of you, mothers or not, have an absolutely lovely Mother’s Day!!
