I have a sweet giveaway for you today that combines two of my favorite things. Cupcakes & Jewelry!
Recently I came across a super cute necklace and bracelet on Zulily that I ordered for both my daughter and her BFF. It was from a company called Sugar & Vine, and I wasn’t sure what exactly to expect and hoped for the best. I was beyond thrilled when they showed up and were super cute. I LOVED them (as did the girls who now have official BFF jewels).
Up until 2011, I ran my own jewelry design business called Sentimental Silver. For almost seven years I made personalized jewelry by hand and had a great time with it. I had some celeb clients, an awesome amount of fun press coverage and I obviously always had all the personalized jewelry I could want. But when precious metal prices went through the roof right about the time we realized our youngest had quite a few special needs that would require an intensive therapy schedule, I knew it was time to close up shop. It was hard, I loved my job, but it was the right choice. Since that time I haven’t bought any new jewelry, made any or really even worn any – jewelry felt a bit bittersweet after closing up shop. I share this with you, because it probably gives me a little different opinion on jewelry, especially on a baking blog!
And then here comes Sugar & Vine. All I was looking for was a cute Hanukkah gift for my daughter’s BFF, and ended up in love with what I found. I was so crazy about these darling necklaces that I finally felt like it was time to put some jewelry back on. When I realized that Sugar & Vine even had a super sweet cupcake charm, that was it, I was done, I had to have it. I was in love! And the prices? Fabulous. I love that much like I always did with my jewelry, they encourage their customers to mix and match charms and make their necklaces unique and special. I still get emails almost daily from people asking me if I am going back into the jewelry business, which I am not. I am however super excited to have come across a line of jewelry that I love enough to recommend, which is something I don’t do lightly.
I contacted Sugar & Vine to let them know how much I loved their jewelry and they were so wonderful as to offer to send me a necklace for review as well as to sponsor a giveaway for my readers! They sent me out a cupcake charm necklace with two extra charms, a B & a G – for my girls. I absolutely adore it! They also sent me some of their super fun Boot Straps (which I had to stop a certain tween from wearing to school this morning – um, hello, just because you can now fit in my size seven shoes doesn’t mean you just get to take any of them, especially with my sparkly new Boot Straps!).
Sugar & Vine is all about expressing your own individual style and personality. They give you a versatile assortment of customizable products that are trendy, yet affordable. Sugar & Vine identifies with every women and there is something for everyone. My nine year old loves her necklace, I love mine and I have a feeling the Grandma that I am buying one for will love hers as well.
