Happy Monday!

Why does the weekend always fly by super fast especially when the weather has been extremely amazing lately?? Seriously - here in Seattle, it feels almost like Summer with temps up to the 80s! And our weather usually isn't this great until maybe.. July! We just got really lucky and this week will still be awesome with all the warm weather! Hopefully it'll stay till the weekend so I can at least enjoy some of it! ;)

 And speaking of this week, Mother's Day is coming up soon on May 12th! So I've partnered up with Blue Nile to show the appreciation for all mothers out there and to celebrate this special day for them! The people at Blue Nile were gracious enough to send me two pairs of earrings to style with for myself (pictured above) and a brand new pair to one lucky She is Lovely reader! It will be yours to keep or a gift to your mom (or grandma) which will be a belated one since this giveaway ends the day of. But nonetheless, it is a way to say "Thank you, Mom" for all the things they've done for us and still do! These earrings are really pretty in person and surprisingly light! They're not heavy at all to hold down the ears and has delicate leaf details in chandelier-style so they're perfect to wear for a night out! 

To enter this giveaway, all you will have to do is follow the Rafflecopter below and some simple rules.

 1. The first four steps within the Rafflecopter are mandatory in order to be entered.
2. The other steps are not mandatory but it would give you more chances to win!
3. Please follow the rules and don't just click through. I will be validating your entries. :)

The winner will have 48 hours to reply back to my e-mail with shipping info once it has been announced. If not, I will pick another winner.

This is open for everyone! U.S./Canada and International!

Good luck everyone!

Disclaimer: Blue Nile did send me the complimentary pair of earrings to do the style post and is sponsoring this giveaway. 
All honest opinions and thoughts expressed were my own.  


  1. My mom lives halfway across the country so I won't be doing any "actual" celebrating on Mother's Day.

    However, I'm doing a special event on my blog, "mother MAY i" mondays, where I post every Monday in May a post for mothers. Today was my first, and focused on maternity. Each Monday I'll focus on something different.

    I'm hoping to be able to do something for my mom, send her some sort of gift, maybe a craft or drawing, or card, whatever I can, and call her..Just whatever I'm capable to do.

  2. I live far away from my Mom. My plan is to visit her and bring her to places she wanted to see like Tagaytay maybe or Baguio City. A place where she can chill out because it is so hot here in Philippines now!

  3. I'm going to spend mother's day with YOU!! woot

  4. What a cute striped dress! Looks really comfy too. I'm jealous of your weather there...the last few days it's only been in the 50s and I'm freezing.

  5. Sheila, that dress looks awesome on you and I love the jacket paired with it. Great earrings! The backdrop for your pictures is gorgeous. Have a great week!

  6. For Mothers Day my stepdad and stepbrother (my other brother lives far away) are hosting a cookout for the Mom's, me, my Mother, my Grandmother, and my Great Grandma. Should be interesting!

  10. My mom and I live in different countries, so I won't be able to see her in person. I sent a card, though, and I'll definitely call her.

    You look beautiful in that outfit! Those earrings are great.

  11. Probably just going to lunch with the family. My mom doesn't like big productions.

  12. The Mother's Day already passed here (was yesterday) and it was something simple. Because I had to work I only had dinner with her and now we have yet to go shopping for her gift because she wants to choose something for her laptop so I'll go with her to give her! :)

  42. I don't have any confirmed Mother's Day plans yet but I hope to have lunch with my mother! Our plans are always last minute!

  43. My siblings and I are cooking dinner for my mom!

  44. Me and my family are hoping to give her a day to relax. 363 days/year excluding mother's day and her b-day she is always working, making time for family and the house. I think she deserves to be pampered with breakfast in bed, a nice massage and a good meal in the evening, which I am sure she will never say no to because that means she doesn't have to cook.


  45. You look fabulous!

  58. I didn't realize how cold Seattle was. It's been over a hundred here for a few weeks. And then I find out the rest of the country is still in the 50s. What?

    7% Solution​

  59. You are looking awesome and gorgeous. I love dresses in stripes design its pretty.

  60. I love your simple necklace
    Altogether you look fab 

  61. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or
    two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
