Wristology Watches: Look Good. Do Good.



I have been wanting a gold boyfriend watch for a while. I think they look so chic, especially with dark nails during the winter. I love the Michael Kors ones, so I was thinking about possibly asking for one for Christmas, but added another David Yurman bracelet (to add to the stack!) instead. Then, I stumbled across Wristology and fell in love with their watches! 

My watch!

Wristology's mission is "Look Good. Do Good," because for every dollar earned by Wristology, they donate 5% back to the charity of your choice! I love knowing that almost $25 of my purchase will go towards helping abused women get back on their feet, caring for abused animals, or feeding hungry children in the US. I love this mission! 

Not to mention, Wristology's watches are gorgeous! They offer watches in black, tortoise, gold, silver, and rose gold! Like I said, I ordered the gold watch and have worn it every day since receiving it! I love that I can dress it up or just wear it with leggings, boots, and a letter sweatshirt when running last minute Christmas errands.

 Love the tortoise, too! 

Another feature that I love is that before shipping it to you, Wristology allows you to custom size your wristband. I know a lot of my friends have tiny wrists, so it's so nice that they could order one that doesn't need to be sized once it arrives in the mail!

Right now, Wristology is running a promotion that offers free shipping and 30% off your purchase with the code NewYear30, which lasts until the New Year! 

Which watch is your favorite? How would you wear it?

Glam Grab

I know accessory auctions are super popular right now, so I finally jumped on the band wagon and tried out a bracelet from an amazing accesory website, Glam Grab. Glam Grab offers chic pieces on their website and they also have flash sales every Monday at 7:30 PM and on Wednesdays at 11:00 AM. Some of their piece are as low as $15!
 
I tried out one of their popular Ultimate Glam Pave Link Bracelet, which is definitely a statement piece!
 
 
I wore it out on my 21st, but I think it would be great for parties or just a night out! Here are some other pieces I have my eye on:
 
Camilla Watermelon Earrings
 
Coco Necklace

Monogram Necklace
 
Honey Bangle Set in Aqua
 
Have y'all shopped Glam Grab before? What's your favorite piece? Have a wonderful day!

Poppy and Pippa

I know y'all have seen the no-crimp, knotted hair ties that have become so popular in the past year or so. I have been wanting to try them for a while, but just haven't justified buying them since I usually never put my hair up. However, I've been trying to change up my hair lately, so I've been trying different looks, and I've been wearing it up a lot more!
So when Poppy and Pippa offered to send me some of their gorgeous knotted hair ties, of course I said yes!
Here's the package they sent me, with tons of gorgeous colors:

I have really thick, heavy hair, so I've been using two, which is fun, because I can pair a couple of colors together! Here are the colors I wore yesterday:

A pretty green and hot pink! Please ignore the chipping nails....

In addition to knotted hair ties, Poppy and Pippa offers a ton of other cute, affordable hair accessories:

Love this hair clip!

Newborn headband

Christmas collection hair ties

How cute would these be in a little girl's hair?!

I'm loving all of their Christmas stuff, especially! If you're interested in purchasing some hair ties from Poppy and Pippa, use the code prep20 for 20% off your order! What's your favorite item from Poppy and Pippa? Have you jumped on the knotted hair tie band wagon yet? Have a great day!

Second Semester Already?!

I don't even want to start thinking about next semester, but I'm trying to get everything ready, so when I come back to school in January, everything will be ready for my new classes! Lifeguard Press sent me a wall Lilly calendar, so I have that on the wall, ready to be used for planning!
 
 
I also cleaned out all of my papers, my desk, and have my binder ready to go, thanks to Heather's Pretty Papers!
 
I'm super OCD when it comes to planning and organization, and since I'm taking 6 classes next semester, I want to make sure my binder is very organized! Heather was sweet enough to send me one of her Preppy Binder Dividers and Cover sets, and I cannot be more excited to show them off next semester!
 
My set!

Each set includes two binder covers--one for the front and back, a spine insert, and 5 dividers with tabs. I also love that each item is laminated, which makes it a lot more durable. Heather offers 3 different sets: the Preppy, the Martha, or the Lily. Of course, I went with the preppy, but here are the other two:
 
The Lily
 
The Martha
 
This the way my binder turned out:
 
 Love the hot pink with the navy!
 
And look at all of my fun dividers:
 
 
Although I'm not excited about having so many classes next semester, I am excited to start using my fun binder! Thanks again, Heather!
 
Have a wonderful day!
 
Miss Southern Prep

P.S. Thanks for all of the sweet birthday wishes! Y'all made my day!

Giveaway: Kayce Hughes Dress

I know y'all have seen Kayce Hughes' beautiful dresses. In addition to reading her blog, I get her emails, and as soon as I saw her holiday line, I began drooling over every single gorgeous piece:

 3/4 sleeve tunic dress

vintage geometric rhinestone bracelet

 sleeveless gigi dress


vintage bow necklace

Kayce Hughes, mom of seven (!), began her line, formerly called Pears and Bears, after turning vintage fabric into nightdresses for her daughters. The nightshirts were the beginning of a now 200 piece collection, which has been recognized by Vogue, Martha Stewart, and Domino. 

Kayce's pieces are all so flattering and easy to wear, so when she contacted me about giving away a dress, I literally squealed! I could not be more excited! Kayce Hughes has generously offered to give one of my readers one of her beautiful holiday dresses, the Lyndal.

Giveaway: ThomasKelly

I know y'all have heard of the popular company ThomasKelly, whose workout clothes have become a staple among the preppy crowd! Their motto is "To take preppy from exercise to errands!"
Husband and wife team Thomas and Kelly Gamble met in California, while they were both selling commercial real estate. They wanted to create a line similar to Vineyard Vines, but during a spinning class, Kelly had the idea to create a line of preppy activewear! The line was officially launched in August 2012 and is being sold online and at trunk shows around the country.
I love the idea of preppy activewear, since so much of it is plain and boring! Here are some of my favorite ThomasKelly pieces:
Bolero Boyfriend Cardigan

Malaga Mix Tank

Ladera Leggings
ThomasKelly has offered to giveaway a pair of their Padaro pants, valued at $98, to one lucky reader!

All you have to do to enter is click on the title of this post and then fill out the Rafflecopter widget!
Good luck!
