Monkey See Boutique ~ A Giveaway!

I love to do business with real people. So when I started talking with Michelle from Monkey See Boutique, I was thrilled to discover that she is, in fact, a real person. Michelle is a married mama of three adorable kidlets. How she finds time to run this wonderful online boutique is beyond me. But she does. And I'm glad!

In Michelle's own words..."As a girl from the deep south, my love for boutique items and unique {preppy} finds have turned into a passion. I love finding things that inspire and make me happy when I look at them. I love rooms that {POP}, gifts that make people say {WOW}, monograms on {EVERYTHING}, and accessories that make someone ask {WHERE DID YOU GET THAT?}."

It may sound silly, but I LOVE when someone asks me "WHERE did you get that?" And I've gotten that question at least 15 times while carrying my Monogrammed Straw Beach Bag. It's a perfect summer purse.

I am loving all of her personalized and monogrammed jewelry, but especially this Monogrammed Round Charm Necklace.

Monkey See Boutique is jam-packed with beautiful gifts. These monogrammed cake toppers may have initially been intended for weddings, but wouldn't they be fantastic for anyone's birthday cake? At less than $25, I'm in LOVE with the Swarovski Crystal Cake Toppers!

Monkey See Boutique is giving away a $40 gift certificate to one lucky reader. If you're ready to do some shopping, you can also receive 10% off your entire order if you use the code thankyou10.
