yay for giveaways *closed*

Ok, so here goes. My first giveaway! I have a random selection, not much, but it's my first so hopefully you'll enjoy it. And anyways, it's free, so why not?

The items are:

A fun little floral ring! It's plastic so really light and easy to wear, probably around a size 8? Like I actually know the size of my own fingers... To be honest, I don't know the brand, since I found it at a little boutique near my house. 

A vintage silk scarf! This one I found at a shop in Minneapolis, and I think it's quite fun - in reality, when all spread out like this, the pattern is quite ridiculous. But when you get all creative (you know, tie it around your head turban-style or perhaps in a fancy knot around your neck) the ridiculous pattern becomes a gorgeous mix of color!

Last but not least, a little satchel from Target, courtesy of my sister Natalie. She wanted to get a new purse for summer, bought it, then decided it wasn't her style, so she was going to give it to me. Until I came home with my black satchel, which looks quite similar. So I suggested that she give it to me anyways and that I would put it in my giveaway. That way, we can spread the satchel-love around to some lucky reader :)

So there you are! A ring, a scarf, and a satchel. Perfect accessories to finish out the summer and bring you into fall. Now, onto the most important (yet least fun I suppose) part: rules

1. Follow my blog on Google Friend Connect - look to your right. See that sidebar? Where it says follow this blog, click. Got it? Good. Apparently I'm making the assumption that you're all blog-illiterate, but better safe than sorry, right? Ok, onwards and upwards...
2. Follow my blog on Bloglovin - actually this step is optional. I just find bloglovin the  most convenient way to follow blogs and I want it to be as convenient as possible for you to visit me from now on!
3. Comment on this post: Comment with the name with which you followed me on Google Friend Connect and some sort of contact information (your email or blog address) so that I can find you if you win! *Note: to all my current followers, you need to comment on this post as well if you want to be entered. That way you show that you actually read my blog and pay attention to me every once and awhile :) *
4. Now you wait! And come back and visit me hopefully? I mean, you should probably check back at some point, so you can see if you win... we wouldn't want you to not get your prize!  I'll be picking the winner randomly from my followers (new and old) who commented on this post sometime in the next few weeks, before I go back to school.

Note #2: Also, please don't just follow me just for the giveaway then un-follow once it's done. I know, this is fairly self-explanatory - wouldn't be a very nice thing to do, would it? - I just wanted to ask nicely :)

And that's it! Get entering, and thank you all once again for your support! Good luck xoxo
