GIVE AWAY WEEK pt.2 : SUNSHINE, PASTELS AND CHARMS

A couple of things I've noticed:
1.  I always want to name posts with pictures taken in the kitchen pastel this and pastel that regardless of what I really am wearing. Which is something of a duh!, since my kitchen itself is in pastel colours. Makes the rest go along as well.

2. It is suddenly so light outside! Even in the evening. Which is nice. But, only three months before it starts getting darker again! Which is totally wtf. Also, once again, it's the time of the year when the windows start calling for a wash (ouch!).

3. I decided to call this hair the "house wife hairdo".


But now to the theme of the week:

As you may recall I am rather bad at remembering to wear my jewelry. Sounds stupid? Yes, it is. (Has to do with my work also now that I think about it.) I mostly wear what I have in periods. I do like jewelry an accessories, so I've been trying to remember to wear those I have and vary them. Now I've been wearing this bracelet that I was given by Cutey (cutey.co.uk), a small company making charm bracelets. As usual with charms, you can mix and match them as you like, as the bracelet has this removable lock/stopper. My bracelet is in green and pink, to match myheadband and my kitchen (HA HA). First I though the chain would stretch, but it doesn't, so if you have a very wide wrist the bracelet might be too small.

And, as I have a give away week (that was the theme, not me and my acessories dilemma) going on, I will let one of you win a similar bracelet to mine, with pink charms!


You know how this works, but lets go trough it again: 
this give away is open to all my readers.
You enter by leaving me a comment on this post. 
The winner will be drawn randomly which means only one comment per person, and, you have to be reachable to me trough that comment either by a linked account or by giving me your mail.
If you post and link about this somewhere else on the web you get another entry, which is, if you write me a comment about it.

The giveaway is open for a week; until Thursday March 22!

In case you are curious my flamingo headband is from  BooBoo Kitty Couture's etsy shop and my shirt is from Vivien of Holloway, still fits me if I leave the last buttons open, or tie it on top of my belly :)

HI, I would love to see a tutorial for this hairstyle if you ever get the time. Being a housewife with new baby myself time for victory rolls etc is short!

Very aptly titled post! Pastels are such friendly colors, aren't they? (Reminds me of how Meg Ryan calls daisies friendly in You've Got Mail, which is a movie I totally got!).

Ihana rannekoru. Se olisi ihana syntymäpäivälahja, kun tuo 22.3. on juhlapäiväni :)

Ihailen muuten aina, miten saat hiuksesi niin nätisti! Yritän opetella laittamaan omia suortuviani, mutta olen hieman laiska... ;)
