lovely ladies + a giveaway

Today marks one week since my grandma passed away.
It was a tough week for me and my family, and I just want to extend my sincerest appreciation to everyone who commented, tweeted, Facebooked, texted and emailed me throughout the week.
Your kind words and prayers were truly a blessing.
I know these words aren't enough, but THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.
Here's one of my favorite pictures of my grandma that I just had to share:

She was one classic, lovely lady.

Speaking of lovely ladies, these introductions are LONG OVERDUE.
So overdue, in fact, that these ladies are no longer on my sidebar, but they are fabulous.
And it's better late than never.
Plus, there is a giveaway including 4 prizes for 1 lucky winner!
So without further adieu:

Jackie, Lilla Rose Independent Consultant

My name is Jackie Adams and I'm an Independent Lilla Rose consultant. I discovered the Flexi-8 (Lilla Rose's premiere product) in a friend's hair and thought it was the perfect solution to my 'hair issues'.  The combination of practical and pretty took me by surprise. I'd never seen anything quite like it. I became a consultant before I'd even had one in my hair and never regretted the decision. I was also a homeschooling mom and a massage therapist so I needed something quick and simple. I love introducing the products to ladies who want to create a pretty hairstyle without a lot of fuss. 

Jackie is giving away a $16 gift certificate to Lilla Rose!

Jen @ Jennifer Leigh's Blog

Hi! I'm Jennifer Leigh & I blog over at I blog about anything & everything that's going on in my life, but mostly about fashion & beauty since I'm definitely a shopaholic! Right now, it's turning to fall here in NYC so I'll be posting about fall fashion finds & things I love about the season! Hope to hear from y'all soon!

Jen is giving away a 200x200 ad space on her blog {use Rafflecopter below} and offering Running in Stilettos readers 40% off ads for the rest of October! Just use promo code STILETTOS.

Hilary @ Diary of Do'ers

Hi! I'm Hilary and I hold a small piece of this awesome blogosphere over at Diaries of Do'ers which I created to document me and the hubby's newlywed life and new home adventures. It's turned into a general lifestyle blog involving my love of frugal great finds - from d├ęcor to fashion, DIY successes & failures, furniture flips, and still-newlywed life {ahem, my trial & errors with meal-making for the hubs}.

Things are usually planned out well in this household… but we’ve done all the planning we can do and have now made the decision to TTC! Hopefully we’ll be opening a new chapter in our lives {and the blog} soon – after all… ‘Do’ers’ does take on a new meaning when trying to get knocked up! Please swing by and say hi, I'd love to 'meet' you!

Hilary is giving away a $5 Starbucks gift card!

Brittney @ The Sweet Life

Hey there lovely people! I’m Brittney and I blog over at The Sweet Life! Brittney = wife, daughter and BIG (must emphasize big) sister. Over at my blog you will find a lot of randomness, current obsessions, DIY projects that I have finally conquered and so much more. Like I said I’m random so you never know what you might find that day, but I hope somehow it puts a smile on your face! Currently in California, most recently Hawaii, my home is where the USMC takes us! I hope you stop by to read along! 

Now, go check out those ladies this instant!
