Giveaway!!!

As announced yesterday, I'm doing my first blog giveaway! 
In celebration of Urban Revisions two year anniversary today.
The image above is me and unless you know me personally, you're probably unfamiliar with my look. Until recently I made silly assumptions and convinced myself that I shouldn't include my dreadlocks in images related to the shop... that some people's misunderstanding about dreads might influence whom they thought they were purchasing from (i.e. believing it is a dirty hairstyle *though it is not*). However! Along with Urban Revisions anniversary, it is almost my locks day to celebrate as well. On the 9th, I will have been growing these babies for 5 years. It's been amazing to watch them grow and form. I can't wait for the California sun to lighten them up in a few weeks.

I know people read this blog but I'm not entirely sure who you are. So, who are you?! Leave me a comment and let me know - along with your email address. I want to send one of you beautiful people a glass cluster ring and a shredded scarf in the color of your choice - gray, lilac, rose or sage. 
I'll chose a winner next Friday the 16th!

ps - while you're at it... become a facebook fan?

I freaking love your dreadlocks. I definitely couldn't pull them off (or put the effort in, frankly, as I have never been able to sustain any sort of hair style or look or whatever) but I admire them (good ones, like yours) on other people.

That was a ramble. BUT.

Yay for giveaways. And, I'm Mallory.. which you know.

Melissa said...

Hi Arlie,
I'm Melissa from Vancouver, Canada. I own a few of your shredded goodies and love them all. I am a mother to 2 little monsters (aged 2 and 3 1/2) and really love being a mom to them (dispite me calling them monsters, which they are sometimes). In my former life, I was a spa therapist, portrait photographer, retail gal, marketing gal... And now it sit outside the door of my 2 year old's bedroom to prevent her from sneaking out to wake up her brother. Feeling a little sorry for myself right now, I would love to win some *bling* in the form of your gorgeous glass rings, and of course more shredded goodies. And so I put my name in the virtual hat of this awesome giveaway!
