I nearly missed Sweet Nothings’ first birthday last year, because I was so busy watching Captain America in my jammies and writing a cranky post about True & Co. This year, as we turn 2, I wanted to get started a day early so I could take the time to thank each and every one of you who has made Sweet Nothings what it is today. Your comments, Facebook messages, questions, criticisms, tweets, emails, and other responses are thoughtful, funny, and wise, and even if you prefer to read in silence and anonymity, I really and truly appreciate every single member of this little community. I always assumed I’d be writing for myself and a circle of five friends from college who were used to my nattering on about underwear, so realizing that people are reading from different states, let alone different countries, is truly humbling. Today’s post really isn’t about me, it’s about you, and to that end, I want to give you some presents!
I’m particularly grateful to both Dottie’s Delights and A Sophisticated Pair, who have generously matched my contributions to bring you these lovely prizes. The giveaways won’t go live until tomorrow, the day of my actual blog anniversary, but I’ll go ahead and spill the beans:
- One USD$50 gift certificate to A Sophisticated Pair (generously co-sponsored by A Sophisticated Pair) plus one full-size bottle of Eucalan Delicate Wash (generously donated by Eucalan) (USA/Canada only)
- One USD$100 gift certificate to Dottie’s Delights (generously co-sponsored by Dottie’s Delights) (International)
ALSO, YOU’RE ALL WINNERS
While I sadly don’t have the means to buy gift cards for everyone (Gus and Ruby still need their dinner, after all), I do want to honor each and every one of you. To that end, I have made a $100 donation to RAINN in the name of the Sweet Nothings community. RAINN is the USA’s largest anti-sexual violence organization. Their work includes educational programs, support networks, crisis hotlines, counseling, and recovery advice.
Want to win some lovely undies? Come back tomorrow for instructions on how to enter! The contests will go live at 7:00 a.m. EST on Friday, May 2 and will close at 11:59 p.m. EST on Thursday, May 8, 2014. I will announce the winners on Friday, May 9, at which point a winner will have 72 hours to claim her prize.
See you tomorrow!
