Giveaway: Reverie-Daydream

I have sooooo been looking forward to this giveaway for a few reasons:
1) I fell in love with the boutique Reverie-Daydream on my first visit and I know you will too.
2) Melissa, the owner and blogger, unbelievably kind and obviously passionate about her shop.
3) This boutique's philosophy is embodies so much of what I strive to support in my personal life and with this blog.
"We are an environmentally and ethically conscious company...the desire of Reverie-Daydream is to encourage our shoppers to make responsible buying decisions that will improve the lives of people and their valued culture and our beloved planet...We use 100% recycle paper for our gift bags, gift boxes, envelopes, and receipts."
If I could, I would give Melissa a giant hug and high five for standing out, for making an extra effort to maintain a higher level of integrity, and for being friggin awesome.
4) Finally, it's my birthday weekend and if I could choose a shop to celebrate with for a giveaway it is absolutely this one!
Now, let's get down to business...
Melissa is offering an amazing giveaway. The winner (whom I will probably have to rob) will get his/her choice of one of these lovely items...
This a cute, chic, handmade, hand glazed "trio of sweetness." These sparrows were designed and created by San Francisco Bay artist, J. Menodcino. Ummm, can you seem them in your house because I can see them in mine.
Three bird set $60
If you're anything like me, you realize one can never have enough toss pillows. This "pocket pillow" is hand silk screened on hemp/cotton and stuffed with repurposed batting. It's adorable and sweet and need I say more?
MoonTea Artwor: Je t'aime Heart Pillow $28

If you're still using plastic bags for your groceries, please reconsider and choose one of Alena Hennessy's Organic Cotton Twill Bags instead. You can choose between Living Tree (light beige) or Le Jardin (brown). These are super roomy and would be great to take to work, overnight trips, or the local farmer's market.
Alena Hennesy: Organic Cotton Twill Bags $40
Who doesn't love a well designed, fragrant candle? These candles are made from "high quality fragrance...blended with 100% soy wax...provides 60-70 hours of burn time and is guaranteed virtually soot free." These are not your normal, average candles. You can choose between purewhite or cambiere and your fragrance which you can find by clicking on the hyperlink below.
100% soy wax candles by minedesign $28
These products are only the tip of the iceburg when it comes to what this shop has to offer. Whew.
To sweeten the deal, Melissa is offering Free Shipping to all U.S. orders over $25...

Ready for the rules (You can enter twice)!
1) This giveaway is open to everyone. (If you don't have a blog where I can contact you be sure to leave your e-mail.) You don't have to be a follower, but it is my birthday and you'd make me happy with a little commitment:)
2) Leave a comment letting me know which product you would choose if I happen to pick your name.

3) You can double your chances of winning if you post a link to this giveaway on your blog, Facebook or Twitter. Just make sure you enter a separate comment telling me you've done so.
Winner will be chosen next Tuesday at 6pm-ish.
Good luck and happy weekend to you! I will be celebrating another year of life so I may not be updating the blog until Monday. As always, thanks for reading and for being such supportive and fantastic readers!

Iva said...

Happy Birthday Weekend!I hope you have an amazing weekend.

You always have the greatest giveaways. I could not love this one more!! Its perfect beyond words! I'm a Green nut so the whole 'environmentally and ethically conscious' company just melts me over. I'm going to go on over to see what else she has!

Picking just one thing is pretty rough lol BUT I'm going to go with the bag as my 'final answer' because of the print on it "with love and respect for the earth". Perfect.

Have a wonderful weekend! I hope B makes you some delicious meal, like the steak salad we got to see!! YUMMY!
