Gina Made It Giveaway!

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

If you read last night, you learned that Mink Sunday is partnering with Gina Made It for an amazing giveaway! As I've mentioned in the past, I will never promote a product that I don't 100% believe in. Gina sent me a sample from her Bun Bow line and I wore it to work today with this biggest top knot possible. I had a few people ask me where I got it from and already have close friends itching for the giveaway. So, without further ado here are the terms:

  • Using the Rafflecopter giveaway template below, you MUST "like" Gina Made It on Facebook. Make sure to do so through the link below or your entry wont be counted.
  • For an additional entry into the competition, you can click to follow MinkSunday by going to the home page, Mink Sunday, and clicking the blue "Join This Site" button on the right hand side. You will then be prompted to sign into you email account (Gmail users) and follow the steps. (please do not follow anonymously as I wont be able to count you for the additional entry). Please note, you will never get any emails or spam from following along.
  • I will announce the giveaway winner a week from today on the 8th so make sure to check back! 
Good luck!

How cute is Gina? She makes those headbands as well!

Music Monday + Giveaway Announcement!

Monday, April 29, 2013

We're gonna be quick on this Music Monday and get to the good stuff - aka a new Giveaway announcement! Have been loving this song lately. Lana Del Rey is terrible live, but she produces some good songs including this one. I think I'm most excited because it's from the upcoming Great Gatsby movie done by Baz Luhrmann (same guy who did Claire Danes and Leo's Romeo and Juliet - aaaamazing). It may be cliche, but The Great Gatsby is truly my favorite book. Last year J and I went to visit F Scott Fitzgerald's grave site which is randomly in Rockville Maryland. He was just an incredible writer. Movie comes out on May 10th if you are interested. I'm already hearing great things...

 Now on to the fun - I am so excited to announce that Mink Sunday will be partnering with Gina Made It! Gina is a very talented designer and the master mind behind the Bun Bow and I CAN'T.GET.ENOUGH! Make sure to check back tomorrow night because one lucky Mink Sunday reader will win a killer giveaway directly from Gina Made It! Below is a little teaser of just how cute the Bun Bows  are...

Safe to say I won't ever be over leopard. In small doses, it's so chic. My beat up leopard loafers are my staple, everyday work shoe and mark my words, I will have a leopard runner in my house one day. I've also had my cat eye on that Clare Vivier clutch for a while now... Fun and playful, a little leopard touch can really spice up a space or outfit. Meow.

Light Up

I've always had a thing for lighthouses. From Nantucket to Rhode Island, Maine to North Carolina, these beauties emit a calm and tranquil environment and all seem to tell a great story. Guiding old seafarers home from a long voyage, there's something so settling and yet so eerie about these historic land marks. The sound of water lapping up against the rocks might also be the most soothing white noise ever to exist. And then there are the colors... brights and stripes warning sailors from shallow waters.  This East Coast staple is certainly a favorite of mine. If the following doesn't get you excited for Summer and salty sea air, I don't know what will!

Music Monday

Monday, April 22, 2013

Happy Monday Minkies! I discovered tonight's song on Made in Chelsea, a UK series that more than resembles MTV's The Hills. In addition to the highly scripted, majorly addictive plot line, and the incredible clothes (I am now on the hunt for a fox fur stole) the music is also AMAZING. You can watch some of the episodes on The Style Network, but they are on at very random times and are rare to come by. Hopefully the additional seasons will be arriving in the US soon, but I hear you can crack into them on UK Itunes ;)

Have a wonderful week!

Aquaphor Giveaway!!

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Hi All,

Today I am thrilled to be partnering with Aquaphor for an amazing giveaway! When they contacted me to be a part of their #PerfectlyPolished Spring challenge, I knew the only answer was yes! yes! yes! I'm already an avid Aquaphor user, so convincing me wasn't necessary. But for anyone who hasn't tested out this product, you are in for a major treat!

I usually use Aquaphor on my lips. It's a fantastic healing ointment and I really do prefer it over chapstick or lip gloss. But did you know, it can also be used to protect your fresh Spring mani/pedi from smudging while simultaneously hydrating your hands and smoothing your cuticles? I took the challenge and am happy to report - It's true! 

#PerfectlyPolished Spring Challenge:
  1. Use the Aquaphor healing ointment on your hands and cuticles overnight.
  2. Use the supplied nail kit to clean up your nails and cuticles
  3. Apply a layer of the healing Ointment around your nails to keep excess polish from sticking to your skin.
  4. Create a unique manicure with the Essie nail polishes (included) or your favorite Spring color.
  5. Share a picture of your manicure on social media using the #PerfectlyPolished hashtag!

*Aquaphor will share your manicure if you post a Twitter Vine video or share a picture of it on Pinterest with the hashtag!

Here are some pictures from my challenge:

I chose Essie's A Crewed Interest (Winner gets full size Essie Bottles!)


Finished Product!
The giveaway is simple and easy! All you have to do is click on the Rafflecoptor link below and leave a comment mentioning why you love Aquaphor. If you've never used it, leave a comment about why you could use the extra moisturizing help as we transition from Winter into Spring! Receive an extra chance to win by liking Aquaphor on Facebook!

The winner will be announced 1 week from today and will receive ALL of the following! Good luck!

Vacation Time!

Wednesday, April 3, 2013

This week I have been so bad and neglectful and I am sorry! Lots of my "fun" has been put on hold while I took care of some business, and tomorrow I am fiiiiinally taking off on my first vacation in forever- Palm Beach here I come! We will be celebrating a good friend's bachelorette weekend and I couldn't be more ready for some sun, some drinks, and some friends. There will be radio silence throughout the rest of the week/weekend but I will be back for Music Monday, Trending Tuesday and finally a GIVEAWAY (on Wednesday). Make sure to tune in because this is not one you want to miss! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I will see you back here on Monday!

Leaving you with some Palm Beach Inspiration!
(I want one of everything)
