Bags & Besties Giveaway!

What's better than a free designer handbag?
Two free bags, one for you and one for a friend, duh... And today I'm giving away just! I've teamed up with sweet Krista to give away two of the cutest Coach borough bags, one for your and one for a friend!
I met Krista at the Races when I trekked up to Saratgoa with America's Best Racing (read all about it here) for a fun day of betting and mimosas... Let's be honest, mostly mimosas. But Krista, who's partially from Kentucky actually ended up making a little bit of money at the races, meanwhile my money card got stuck in the machine.... Anyways, I became instantly obsessed with her and her darling blog, Covering the Bases! She shares awesome shopping tricks, has impeccable style and even give you a weekly dose of menswear with the help of her awesome boyfriend/photographer! We then our paths crossed multiple times during NYFW and she hosted a little blogger get together at her killer Chelsea apartment before the reward style party. One of the best parts about blogging has to be the people you meet along the way, and am was so glad to add Krista to that list. And since I was already following (okay stalking) her on Social Media, I felt like I had already known her and shopped her suggestions making meeting her that much better.
Together, we're ecstatic to be giving away two darling little Coach borough bags, for a winner and her bestie! The Coach Mini Borough is the perfect little it bag for all seasons, especially Fall! It has three zipper compartments and a convertible/removable Crossbody strap! Since I currently work in product development, I know a well crafted handbag when I see one... and trust me, this is it ;) We're giving away a neutral metallic one (on me) that looks great with any color as well as a color blocked white & brown beaut with a navy handle and strap (on Krista)!

The bags are identical in functionality, but differ in color and therefore style, you and your winning bestie can help allocate who gets which color based on personality and preference! Personally, I like the flashy metallic bag because my style is often over the top (are you surprised? no, probably not at all) but I am also kind of crazy about the neutral simplicity and playful nature of the tan/white color blocked bag. My metallic borough paired perfectly with pointed toe leopard pumps & simple black tee. Side note: If you ever need an easy outfit for almost any occasion, pair a crepe black tee with leopard pumps and a statement necklace! Wear it to the office with cigarette pants, out to dinner with the girls with cool track pants, on a date with tight black or leather skinnies or tone things down for a casual weekend with ripped jeans!

  9. My best friend and i have this weird habit of saying the same things at the same time. It's like we're reading each other's minds...and we usually finish each other's lines. Sometimes it's really annoying but sometimes it's soo fun and awesome. Our mental synchronization can have but one explanation, she and i were just meant to be besties. I love her so much and she means the world to me. That's why when i saw this giveaway i couldnt think of anyone except her. I know she'll be soo happy just like me to win one of these bags. I already entered is giveaway through instagram. My username is @ryanaa_15 and my bff is @richa_18 :) i really hope we win. It'll mean the whole world to us.

  11. My BFF lives far away but I feel like we always see each other because we talk on the phone for at least an hour like we were back in the 8th grade =) I love that!!

  12. Me and my BFF have been friends since 8th grade and have literally shared almost every milestone together. We graduated high school together, got accepted into college together (separate schools though), and graduated college together. We have been apart for the most part due to our colleges being far away from one another, but when we come together, it's like no time has passed.

    One interesting thing about us is that we are older at heart than we seem. We both love coffee, furniture shopping, antiquing, thrift store creating, and cooking. That's what makes out hearts happiest.

  13. Like my best friend said, we are extremely close. Individually we are completely unique, but we compliment each other so well. Shes the Ethel to my Lucy, and the Shirley to my Laverne. We have fun doing the most random things, and make the most out of life. We both love adventures and experiencing new and exciting things. I dont know what I would do without her!!

  14. When will the winner be announced? Xx.
