Group Giveaway Day


Hey friends!

On this day in 1983 I was born, making me the big 3-0 today!

It's my birthday, but YOU get the presents! 

I am so excited about this month's Group Giveaway, because it's birthday-themed, and my awesome sponsors have really offered up some amazing goodies!

 I asked each of them the best birthday present they've ever given or received, and really loved their answers - you will too!

River and Bridge
River and Bridge is an amazing shop filled with some of the most beautiful stationery, party invitations and various paper goods out there. Heather, the designer/owner of River & Bridge is insanely talented, and also happens to be the fabulous lady behind this blog's new look (which I'm obsessed with!) River and Bridge is giving one lucky winner a Bridge Box!


Heather: "For my 26th birthday, my husband gave me diamond earrings, instructed me to put on a dress, and surprised me with a fancy dinner out with a few of our closest friends. The food, drinks and company were amazing, and I felt so special knowing that my husband went to such lengths to plan a memorable evening for me."

You can find River & Bridge here:





The Can Can Cleanse is awesome, and I cannot say enough good things about it! They are generously offering one lucky winner a 3-Day CAN CAN Cleanse (value, $185)
(Bay Area only, delivery not included, feel free to pick up at their awesome San Francisco location!)

From Teresa, owner of CAN CAN:  "The best present I've ever given was the trip for my mom (for her 60th b-day) to the island of Hvar (Croatia) to see the home of her grandmother. It was the most special moment watching how childlike my mom became as we walked the dirt roads and stood in front of the stone house where her grandmother grew up. A magical experience for both of us!"

You can find CAN CAN here:



My friend Lindsay of Pen & Paint is so freaking talented it's ridiculous. I am lucky enough to own several of her prints and have them all throughout myself.  One lucky winner will get to add some P & P art to their home too, thanks to a $30 shop credit to Lindsay's fabulous store!



Lindsay: "My favorite birthday gift was a special beach get-away with my husband last year to celebrate my 30th birthday. It was the first beach trip we had taken alone since having little ones, and it was so nice to enjoy the sun and the sand together!"

Cuppow is one of Glitter and Gloss's newest sponsors, and I adore these guys! You can tell that they are completely passionate about what they do, and it shows through in their fantastic products!

Cuppow is giving one lucky winner one of each cuppows (clear regular mouth, clear wide mouth, blue and orange!)



Aaron of Cuppow: "My best birthday gift ever received: A surprise birthday kidnapping dinner party at an Ethiopian restaurant! Surprising people who hate surprises is the best! I'm a major foodie and had dropped hints about wanting to go- so Josh and co. caught me by surprise and I didn't expect a thing!"

Michelle Dwight Designs

You guys, the pillows by Michelle Dwight Designs are SO incredible awesome! I've featured them on the blog several times, and it's because they're just the coolest around. I'm SUPER jealous, because one of you is going to win the coveted "Hustling" pillow in lavender. Feel free to send it my way, mmkay?


Andrea of Michelle Dwight Designs: "This may sound totally cheesy, but I think the birthday "gift" I remember the most (both giving and receiving) is time spent with my amazing friends. Thinking back on past birthdays that's what comes to mind first. I mean, friends and birthday cake? Doesn't get any better than that!"

One of you lucky ducks will be winning the "Wayward Boyfriend" (inspired by Glitter & Gloss!!) tee:

Alissa of TPP: "The best birthday gift I've ever recieved was my very own life size play house my Dad built me when I was one. It was the size of a small apartment in New York. I used to pretend I had my own boutique growing up. Look at me now- still doing what I love! "

OMG what an amazing giveaway!! The best birthday gift I ever received was this birthday when I invited my closest girlfriends over to sit by the fire and roast marshmallows. It was so simple, stress free, and drama free. Even though some of them brought me material gifts, I think the gift of their presence was the best thing.

Erica said...

Happy birthday! Awesome giveaway full of great stuff! And I'd totally send you that pillow cover if I win! :)

I haven't had too many memorable birthdays, but I think this year might be a big one. I'm turning the big 3-0 in September. My husband is deployed and missed out on my bday last year and it will be THE BEST present everrrrr if he gets to come home (for good) to celebrate my big 30.

Patti said...

Once for my birthday, I told my family that I just wanted them to come with me to pick flowers out to be planted in our yard. They came and we had a lovely day.

One of the best birthday gifts I can remember was actually one that Heather (Mattos) surprised me with-- a bunch of us went to a River Cats game (baseball) and she had a limo come pick us up and take our group out dancing for the night. Ah, to be 25 and without kids again, lol...

Emily said...

I found a stash of REALLY old 8mm home movies from when my dad was a little kid at my great grandma's house before she died. For my dad's 50th b-day, I had them all converted to DVD. Seeing him when he was little with his dad (also deceased) brought tears to his eyes. It was pretty cool.

Julie S. said...
