I don't do sponsorship on this blog. I thought about it for a while. I even wrote up a post detailing all my sponsorship options. 
Then I deleted it. 

I'm not here to discuss the pros and cons of blog sponsorship, but obviously the pros are that if you have sponsors you can earn money for blogging instead of what I do (ie. not earn money). The cons, however, outweighed the potential money earnings, at least for me. That's all I'm going to say about it. I'm not saying sponsorship is bad; it just isn't for me (at least right now).

Anyway, besides the cash, one pro for YOU of me not having sponsors is that you can be 100% sure that when I host a giveaway, it's because I think whatever I'm giving away is legit. It's not because I got paid.

So please take the time to check out my girl Allison, because she's one of my favorite bloggers! She and her husband, Riley (who is also an electrician like Jordan!), are leaving in a few weeks to live on a boat. Like, for real. She quit her job, and he's taking a leave of absence from his, and they're going sailing for an unknown period of time. Who does that? (Don't tell her, but I'm planning on stowing away in her suitcase.)

Besides being a great blogging friend, she also sells jewelry! The stuff in her shop is super cute, and I'm always crushing on her great necklaces and earrings. These are a few of my favorites:

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Lucky for you, I've convinced her to give away a piece from her shop! 
You could win your choice of these earrings or this necklace:

Allison is also offering FREE shipping (to the US), and she also put everything in her shop on sale through the end of September. Apparently when you go on a boat, you don't have room to bring your entire Etsy inventory.

So enter using the Rafflecopter widget below for a chance to win the earrings or the necklace. And make sure to visit her shop for a lovely piece of handmade jewelry with free shipping through the end of September! Winner will be chosen on Tuesday

Tough choice, can I get both...? No? Oh ok, well then I chose the earrings because I LOVE the colour and wanna get my hair cut in a chic bob to show them better off :)
