When Me Undies contacted me about their underwear I immediately got excited to try a pair out (they got a great review in Cosmo).  

There are three options: thong, boyshort or brief (and men's options too).  

I ordered the thong in coral (there are plenty of colours to choose from).  Upon their arrival I'm immediately smitten; they fit seamlessly smooth under snug dresses and tight pencil skirts, and if they peek out of the top of your jeans, they look sweet.

On a personal note, I would definitely size up in these as they are a little tiny.  For reference, I wear a size 31 in pants/denim, and ordered a large (which was still a little teeny but wearable).

Smart Set denim jacket, F21 tank, Bongo jeans, Aldo wedges, Cutey charm bracelet, gifted bangle & Pandora bracelet 

While getting dressed yesterday morning I pulled out my pink denim pants that I haven't worn since Christmas 2010 (and that was the first time I'd wore them after they sat in my closet with tags on for close to six months).  I'm not sure why, they just didn't scream at me to wear them (I certainly wear my red pants quite a bit though).  However, after pulling this outfit together, I think these pants are going to get a lot more play.  I felt so good in this outfit and although pink pants aren't something I've seen others wearing, that just might make me love them even more.  

Are you rocking the coloured jean trend (yet)?
Now the fun part: Cutey contacted me and asked me if I'd be interested in owning one of their charm bracelets and hosting a give-away for you (my uber wonderful readers).

I was pretty pumped as this was before Christmas and before I got my Pandora bracelet.  Since I wear my Pandora everyday (so rare for me with any jewelery, but I love it that much), you can see both bracelets in the photo above, however, Cutey charm bracelets are fraction of the price and already come with several charms on them!  They even have different clasp styles to choose from (depending on the bracelet) so you can pick your favourite, too.  This is definitely something I would wear frequently and layer with other bracelets, a watch, even my Pandora (as I am here).

 Urban Original dress, Diva Lounge wedges & Town & Reese earrings

I'm not sure if I'll be able to take a tropical vacation this winter (I sure hope so though because it was -34 yesterday!), but if I do, you can bet I'll be packing this dress, my new wedges and these summery earrings.  

Neutrals and pops of turquoise (my favourite colour) are my fave.  I only got the chance to wear this dress once last summer (for Canada day, with red shoes) because she sadly got into a bit of a fight with the washing machine. Turns out, if you don't want to be hand-stitching crocheted parts of a dress back together, you best get to hand washing.  

Moving on!

 Now for the fun part...
...is giving away these  earrings just for you!
(Wouldn't they be great to take with you on your winter holiday?!)

The lucky winner is Lauren K!  Thanks to all for playing. xo

I've teamed up with NailPolish Canada to offer my Canadian readers a special give away.  It's a cool Konad Nail Art (which has already sold out once on their website).  Basically how the Konad works is you paint the plate with nail polish then use the stamp to pick up the polish design and stamp it onto your nail.

To enter, simply leave a comment below (you do not need to have a blog to leave a comment) with your email address (but it'd be even sweeter if you followed).

The winner will be announced on Wednesday.

A blogger friend of mine, Katie from Fashion's Maven, recently had a 100 Followers Give-Away providing us with the opportunity to win some goodies from Sephora, so of course I entered.  Well guess what?  I won!  I'm super pumped too because I have never bought anything from Sephora.  I know, I know, some of you might have just fallen off your chair, but it's true.  I've already been using the eye shadow frequently (almost religiously, I really love it!) and the mascara daily.  Thank you so much, Katie!


{ Katie even included a super sweet note - love that }
Dex tee, Le Chateau skirt, Dollhouse wedges, A.Co Designs necklace,
fiancé's watch & Tiffany bracelet (you've seen this combo before)

So the fiancé and I are lying in bed a couple weeks ago watching our newest fave show when the streaming stops.  Argh.  So while he tries to get it fixed, I naturally whip out my phone to check Twitter.  Just then, I spot a message from my (blogger) friend Kate.  I freaked out.  I jumped up and ran to the computer, immediately logged on and checked the Pretty Pleased blog.  Sure enough, I had won their give-away!  Talk about lucky.  I ran back to the bedroom and started jumping on the bed hooting and hollering (yes, hooting and hollering) until I could finally explain to my fiancé what had just happened.

And now, the beautiful wedges have arrived and I rocked them for the first time.  This wasn't exactly the outfit I'd planned on wearing them with, but hey, it's only mid-July, lots more time.  I'm so excited and thankful!

{ I especially love how they look from above }

* Thank you so much Catherine & Mary Chris!!! I love them!

This time, I used the ol' Random.ORG counter as I received more than 50 entries!  I listed all your names into an Excel spreadsheet in the order the comments were received.  Any tweets I received and you didn't leave a comment, you still got an additional entry, I just added those tweets to the bottom, in the order they came in (oldest to newest).

And the winner is...

Congratulations Louise
