Back to School In Style: A Giveaway with Lauren's Hope

Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Notice anything different?!?

I'm so excited to be able to share my new, updated blog design! 

As much as I LOVE the old photo of Sweets, it's not exactly how she looks anymore.  It makes me kind of sad but my baby is growing up!  So, in honor of my five year blogaversary, I decided it was time for the blog to grow up as well! 

Everything is in pretty much the same place.  There are links above where you can read about us, all about our diagnosis story, learn about our D devices: Dexcom and Omnipod, and how to contact me!  To the right side, you can find a link to all of my school and caregiver documents.  And waaaay up at the top in purple, you can click to follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Instagram.  There's also a spot on the right side if you would like to get my posts delivered right to your email inbox each time I blog!  How's that for door to door service!

To CELEBRATE our new, stylish look, I've teamed up with the wonderful folks at Lauren's Hope to do a giveaway!

One lucky winner will get a $50 gift certificate good for ANYTHING in the Lauren's Hope store! 

They have women's jewelry...

men's jewelry...

things for boys...

and things for girls!

They even have a cute bracelet with the JDRF shoe!

And this cute jelly bracelet especially for diabetes!

Don't like bracelets?  No problem!  They have necklaces, too! We like the one with the princess... but there are necklaces of all kinds for both boys and girls!

They even have Tech ID's!  Every MyID™ product comes with a 1-year service subscription and bears up to three methods of accessing your key medical and contact information: scannable QR code, website, and phone number.

One of the first things we did when Sweets was diagnosed was to find her an alert bracelet.  She had never worn ANYTHING before and so I didn't have high hopes.  But we looked together online and she picked something that she liked.  Something pretty!  And she's never taken it off.

Sweets wears her bracelet all the time.  She likes the ones with all the pretty beads!  She swims in it.  Dances in it.  Wears it to school.  Showers in it.  Sleeps in it.  It takes a beating.... but it is still in good shape!  She's had her current bracelet for at least a year... I honestly can't remember when we got it!  So you can be assured that the quality is good! This is the one she's wearing right now... The "DIVA".  Of course!

I'm going to order her another one, though, so she has a back up... just in case!  Another back to school item!  But this one is much prettier than the pencils and glue!

Want to win your own stylish back to school accessory? 

Here's your chance!  Good Luck!
