A Colorful Summer Giveaway!
– Now Closed

 It’s finally here, my first ever giveaway!! I have had this giveaway in my mind for so long and i’m so excited to finally share it with the world. I knew i wanted something super colorful and to include some of my favorite on-island shops. I met both Nicole of Unique Pl8z and Katie of The Glitsea Gypsy because they are vendors in gift shop i work in. I found April of Marine Parents via Instagram and her shop has been inspiring me ever since. This summer giveaway is making me wish these gloomy days were over!

There’s a license plate sign you can hang on your wall to transport you to other places, a passport holder to make your travel time a bit more organized, a pencil set to give you a taste of summer and to help write down your bucket list or your travel thoughts on the adorable journal from Thailand. Four japanese sweet spoons that will make eating your favorite summer treat a breeze! Have a piece of the Okinawa beaches with this blue sari bangle with a gorgeous shiva seashell. Let’s not forget a lip butter made of natural and organic ingredients, a bright pink nail color, and some cute/comfy hairbands. What a colorful giveaway, am i right?!

^^ i swear the japanese are evil geniuses ^^
