Blogversary & Giveaway! - Doused in Pink - a fashion and lifestyle blog

Blogversary & Giveaway!

I can't believe it's been a year already since I started this blogging adventure! Doused In Pink was created on a whim. One afternoon as I was reading a few blogs, my daughter suggested I start one of my own. My response was, seriously, I can't do that! A few weeks later, she suggested it again, and I thought, why not? And an hour later, I had a blog!


I needed a creative outlet and this blog would not only be a fun hobby, but also make me accountable to wearing the clothes hanging in my closet; getting out of my yoga pant rut. My goal with this blog was to remix my closet and share my outfits, DIY projects and recipes. I wanted other women to know that you can look fabulous no matter what your budget and inspire others to create new outfits by stepping out of their fashion comfort zone.

Blogging has been so rewarding and while I started out clueless, I've learned a lot! I'm very proud of all that I've achieved so far. But what is most important to me, is you, my readers! Thank you so much for your support and comments! And to my new blogging friends, thank you for your encouragement!

To celebrate Doused In Pink's blogversary and to thank my readers, I'm giving away a new Stella and Dot Eye Candy Necklace in Hot Pink and a Stella and Dot Capri Pouch in Hot Pink Poppy! Enter through the Rafflecopter below. Giveaway is open to US residents only and will be open for one week. Winner will be announced on March 5th. Good luck!
