GIVEAWAY! // Face of Chic + Shimmer

Happy Friday!
It's only a few more hours until the weekend and I can't wait!

If you don't follow me on Instagram, DO IT NOW! This morning I launched a giveaway to show my followers how much I love you all. I'm giving away a gorgeous Kate Spade New York wallet. Since Mrs. Kate Spade is a fellow Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority sister and one of my favorite designers, it's only appropriate that she be a part of my first little giveaway for Chic + Shimmer.

For those of you who are new to Chic + Shimmer from this giveaway, let me share a little bit about myself. I'm a recent graduate from the University of Kentucky and getting nestled into the Paducah, Kentucky community. Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved all things that glitter, anything pink, and running around in high heels. I was fairly reserved when I was younger but college changed that for me.

Throughout my college career, I came out of my shell and started the path to becoming the woman I want to be. Along that path, I found several gorgeous fashion bloggers via Instagram that have turned out to be my biggest inspirations. Among the list of these bloggers are Katey McFarlan (Chronicles of Frivolity), Caitlin Covington (Southern Curls and Pearls), Alyson Haley (Sequins and Things) and Julia Engel (Gal Meets Glam) just to name a few. After following these ladies for a few months, I had a little thought that entered my head to start my own blog.

As I said before, came out of my shell in college but to start my own public style blog?! That was a whole new endeavor. It took me several months, but I launched Chic + Shimmer in June of 2014. It's had both highs and lows but I'm so glad I started it. I've put myself out into the style blogging world and it's been so fun to find other up-and-coming bloggers to follow alongside. I can't wait to see where Chic + Shimmer takes me!

Enough about me! I'd love to get to know some of my new followers. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need help picking out an outfit, styling advice or just want some girl talk! I look forward to having you follow along!

Don't forget to follow me on Instagram for your chance to win a beautiful Kate Spade wallet for this spring.
