100 followers: giveaway time! // 25 Jul, 2011

Some time last week I noticed that my Google Friend Connect thingamajig count had passed the 100 followers mark. This is truly quite astounding to me as I only started this blog about 3 weeks ago. I just wanted to take a moment to thank ALL of my beloved readers for giving me the benefit of the doubt, visiting each time I make a post, and taking the time to leave feedback. I really really really appreciate it and without you guys this blog wouldn’t be anything. You guys inspire me with your blogs each and every day and I only hope that I can inspire you a little in return.
hand heart To celebrate 100 followers, I have teamed up with ShopNBC, a multi-channel retailer, which has very generously offered one of their beautiful pieces of jewelry as a GIVEAWAY! They are extremely well known for their higher-end labels in jewelry including designers such as Sonia Bitton, Michelle Albala, and Neda Behnam. However, they also have an extremely vast and stunning collection of affordable, high-quality fashion jewelry. The site is easy to navigate with drop-down menus to rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, etc. and items are always being marked-down to great deals. I also love that each page also provides image links to other items similar in style for fast, easy browsing. There are a ton of items that I loved: simple pieces that can be worn daily, as well as exquisite statement pieces that will add a bang to any outfit.

shopnbc giveaway

I hand-picked three of my many favorites for this giveaway: a 14K rose vermeil mother-of-pearl and diamond floral bouquet ring, an incredibly unique art-deco vintage crystal bracelet, and a deliciously green Mohave turquoise ring with intricate floral cutout. A lucky reader of COUTURELUST will win one of the above items of their choice! 

(Sorry to my international readers, I love you ALL, but due to constraints, this giveaway is only open to US residents. I will try my best to open an international giveaway next time!)


1. Follow COUTURELUST on Google Friend Connect and BlogLovin’ (links on right)
2. Visit ShopNBC’s gold jewelry section and leave a link to your favorite item in your entry comment
3. Tell me which one of the above pieces you want to win!
4. Leave your email so I can contact you when you win :)

    the turquoise ring is gorgeous!!

  31. Brooke Lundy says:|t305&prop=Gold|294&catprop=294
    It’s gold with butterflies and quartz. Who could resist?

    I am enjoying your blog. Thanks for checking me out too. I hope you’re following as I am!
    How you made all this happen in a week is baffling. I want to talk shop. I am going to email you facebook msg my number. I love all three pieces and am so indecisive because they all could be seamlessly integrated into my wardrobe. Is that cheating? I am being honest! I guess if I narrowed it down it’d be between the two rings and the Mohave turquoise ring would win. I love the rose vermeil mother-of-pearl and diamond floral bouquet ring a lot and the art deco inspired bracelet. Girl, you make this tough with such impeccable taste! Hmmm, mojave turquoise!
