KEP Designs Giveaway!


Happy Monday, lovelies.


Can you believe it's already the week of Thanksgiving?
I can't, but am accepting it with open arms!

How could you not?
Amazing food. quality time with family. a short work week.
and most importantly: taking the time to count all the blessings in your life.


This weekend was very low key for the "K" household. Since my parents house sold and they have to be out of their house in a week, we helped them move things over to their "new" house. I say new because technically it is, but they are just renting it for a year while they are waiting for their actual home to be built. In the midst of moving, I came across some old school items of mine from when I was younger that I couldn't help but share.

right: See that American Girl doll? Meet mini Katie. She totally looks like me, right?
Back when designing an American Girl doll that looks like you was cool.

This is a classic case of "driving while dear-dairing"

Ooh yes...that would be Dear Dairy you see.
Please tell me someone else was equally obsessed with that thing like me!!!
I'm thinking about bringing it back. It has similar features as the iPhone, no? ;)


Anyways, the rest of the weekend was spent watching my favorite football team lose (Buckeyes + Bengals), putting up Christmas decorations (not the tree yet!), making my girlfriend Marissa a Christmas wreath for her birthday, and going over to her house to have dinner.  We also watched the movie The Change Up and really enjoyed it. It was hilarious. All of this was exciting to me since we got a lot of rest, but probably not too exciting for all of you to read about....

Instead- I decided to start this week off on KC&CO with an awesome giveaway.
Week of Thanksgiving + a giveway?
What more could you want?!








Do you see that beautiful chocolate shell bangle {far right} that I wore all weekend? Well, I love it. It's so perfect to create the stacking look that is all the rage lately and it pairs so well with my MK watch and F21 chain link bracelet.

It's from KEP Designs.



I know there are some of you who are already loyal fans of KEP Designs, but if you haven't heard of them yet, allow me to introduce you to some super cahute jewelry!


KEP Designs is a well known boutique in my all time favorite place...

New York City.


The designer, Kelley, moved from Chicago to New York and eventually created KEP Designs in 2004. Kelley began to design simple, fresh jewelry, using semi precious stones allowing her young shoppers to be able to afford the stylish pieces and start building a collection. Whether you need a statement necklace to wear to a big event or you are on vacation at the beach, KEP Designs has a little something for everyone. :)










Kelley has graciously offered to give one of my readers a chance to win a piece from her collection.  So exciting!!


The lucky winner will get to pick between these 2 fabulous cuff bracelets:






Option #1: 1 1/2 inch elephant cuff in navy
Value: $65.00


or



Option #2: 2 inch anchor cuff in navy
Value: $75.00
