Bride Blu {+super giveaway} and Guest Post at Peppermint Bliss

Today you can also find me at Bailey's at Peppermint Bliss, I have ben stalking Bailey for a while now because she is so cool, very talented and extremely funny! So if you want to know what my spring in London looks like head over there.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bride Blu is one of my favorites Etsy shops. I first came across Cat through her blog that I quickly loved, Cat is very creative and calls herself a crafter and well I know why! because she is talented, imaginative and a real sweetheart. Her pieces are made with the bride in mind but let's admit it, these pieces are wearable any time, any day. They are versatile and really pretty, eye catchers. 

Pretty?? You want one? Easy!
Cat is offering one lucky reader her Anabelle necklace (best seller!) in milky turquise  or crystal clear (winners choice :))

Rules
1. To enter visit the Bride Blu store and pick your favorite, come back and let me know. 
2. If you follow A Diary of Lovely, let me know. I you already follow through Blogger or bloglovin, you can add me on Facebook :) Come back and let me know, you will also make me very happy with this one ;)
3. Follow Cat and her blog Bride Blu here, please leave 3rd comment.
4. Share the love. Tweet, Facebook, or blog about this giveaway and let me know you did.


Please make sure you leave a separate comment for each of these entries, you wouldn't want to miss a chance to win this fabulous giveaway.
{Winner will be chosen with the help of Random.org and will be announced next Thursday}


Want to know more about Cat and Bride Blu?
For as long as I can remember, I have crafted as a way to release stress and adore OOAK pieces (especially in todays mass-produced world!).  Designing jewelery provides me the much needed escape from the grueling pace of the rat race into a world of beauty, whimsy, and sparkles. 
Most of my inspiration comes from vintage shopping...thrifting and flea markets.  I like to imagine the history behind each piece and what it might have meant to the previous owner.  By repurposing vintage finds, I am allowing that piece of history to live on.
I would love to travel more...there is so much of this world I have yet to see (I have yet to leave the borders of the US).  In three years, I see myself still enjoying life with my best friend and husband.  You only get one crack at life and I would have to say, I am blessed to have a life full of such love and happiness.
Follow your passions and dreams and do what you love...the rest will follow.


Thank you so much Cat, I can't tell you how excited I am to be hosting this giveaway.
