This giveaway is now closed.
Go shopping at DownEast!

Dear DownEast,

I love you.You have cute, fun, affordable, modest clothing and accessories. Your 28 day style guide is dreamy. All the new stuff? Adorable. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to review your amazing products. I love the Heart Throb Short and Oceanfront Dress that I was able to review this time. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

Thank you!

Dear California,
I love that in February I can wear shorts like these:
{My thoughts: Perfect length for an average girl like me (to my knee). They fit just right.
All around great pair of shorts. Will LIVE in them this summer.}

and a dress like this:
{My two cents: Flowy. SUPER comfy. Would be perfect
to dress up or wear down. And I can picture taking it
on any vacation anywhere easily.}

Love from,

Dear 30days readers,

You are the best! Do you love DownEast too? If you do, you can win one item of your choice. AND I get to pick two winners. So just answer these questions separately in the comments section. If you don’t answer separately, you will only get credit for one entry. That would be sad. I know I write this every time….but inevitably a few people don’t follow the rules and so I keep writing it.

1.What would you pick from DownEast if you won?
You have to visit the DownEast site and comment here in order to enter.
And for some bonus entries:
2. Are you a DownEast Facebook fan? Cool if yes. Become one if no.
3. Do you follow 30days? Awesome if yes. Become a follower if no.
FYI- readers (ie Bloglines or Google Reader) are no longer picking up my old blogspot feed. You need to change it to the thirtyhandmadedays.com if you want to get the updates.
4. Did you tweet about this giveaway? Or announce it on Facebook? You just increased your chances. ;)
5. I’m curious what you’d like to know from me. Ask me a question that I can answer in a later post. It can be anything you want (no mean ones please).

I will pick the winners this Thurs, February 25th.

Much love,

P.s. If you don’t live in sunny CA, you can still stock up on all the cute finds at DownEast. There’s lots to choose from!
Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    A question for you would be: how do you do it all? Have a blog, raise a family, make dinner, and be so crafty. You probably have a really clean house too.

  2. Brooke says

    I love the Union Square top and the Oceanfront dress. They always have the best stuff. I always drool when their new lines come out.

  3. Chacoy says

    I would get the Cupid Cardigan, it is something that I could wear here during the cold and warm climates;}
    Thank you for the opprotunity!

  4. The Sweet Life says

    I, too, love Down East! What a great giveaway! The Must Have matchstick jean is so cute! My fingers are crossed!

  5. RedHead says

    I LOVE it all! I would probably get either the butterfly kiss dress or the must have matchstick jeans… I love it all though! Great giveaway!

    I've had my eye on that brown dress for a while. We are going on a cruise in April and it would be perfect.
