Win a $250 gift certicate from - CLOSED

The winner is Alice who left this comment:


Love Michael Kors!!! I read your blog everyday =)!
Great giveaway. <3"

Congrats Alice and thanks so much to everyone who entered!

I shop online, a lot. My online shopping in the past few years has increased greatly and now, with so many stores and so many products, it can be quite overwhelming. I've been using lots of helpful search sites to help me find what I'm looking for and I've been obsessed with Beso lately. I just love being able to search for something and find so many products all at once for so many stores. It makes it so much easier to comparison shop and find what I'm looking for. You may have noticed a couple of Beso links in my blog posts and I hope that you can see how helpful it is to shop with their search. Anyway, I was super excited when Beso contacted me to partner with them for a giveaway and it's not just any giveaway, it's $250 gift certificate to YOUR favorite store, yup, your choice! How great is that?

Beso was kind enough to send me a gift certificate and I chose my favorite department store of them all, Nordstrom! I have been wanting a cute summer dress that would work great during the day but transition well to a dress to wear out for dinner and drinks. After a few searches, I ended up getting this gorgeous Vince dress. I just put my order in and can't wait to get it.

Sex and the City 2!

This is sponsored content from BlogHer and Sex and the City 2.

I'm sure all of you know that Sex and the City 2 is coming out soon and I'm not usually a movie theater type person but I do make exceptions for something as big as Carrie and the girls back on the big screen!

Sex and the City reminds me a lot of my relationships with my girlfriends. I don't mean in the way that we are alike in their personalities. I don't think I have any friends that I can say "oh she is just like Samantha." I mean, I personally do not relate to just one of them, but within my group of girlfriends, we do all have our own characteristics that are similar to each Sex and the City character and although we are all at different places in life, when we come together it's like a fun little world that we only we know and love. It's what having good girlfriends is about and I love that a show like Sex and the City really celebrates the power of the female relationships. Even before I was married, I've always been the girl with a boyfriend but I've always made time for my girlfriends as "girl talk" is just something that I just have to have. There is nothing more that I love than meeting girlfriends over dinner and chatting/gossiping over many cocktails through the night. My girls and I have been known to close down restaurants not because we got too crazy but for the pure fact that we can laugh and talk for hours on end and not realize that everyone else in the restaurant has left! It's something that I truly cherish about my girls. Now that we are all a bit older, busy with our careers, some married, some with kids, getting together gets harder and harder to do but I think the best part about growing up and finding a good group of girlfriends is that no matter how long I haven't seen them, we are still there for each other no matter what. I love my husband more than anything but I also realize how important my girls are to me and that life would be completely different without them. After all, who else will squeal with me when I buy a new pair of Louboutins? The shopping support is the best part of girlfriends! :)

So, I would love to know about you and your group of friends! What is it that you love the most about it? Do you and your friends relate to the ladies of Sex and the City?
