1,000 Follower Giveaway, Come Play!

Since my first post in August, 219 days ago, Sparkles and Shoes has developed its own little niche in the blogging world. It is amazing how quickly thousands of you have jumped on my quirky bandwagon.  Yesterday I reached 1,000 Followers on GFC, and if you count up my presence across various social networks S&S touches over 4,000 people! Oh my goodness!   

One of my best friends told me she would only consider me a "real" blogger once I had 1,000 followers –I  am astonished how quickly this has happened! To share my excitement and celebrate this huge milestone, I am hosting what I consider to be a pretty kick-butt giveaway that is even better than a grand prize for a lucky winner!

What is better than a grand prize do you ask? 

I have hit 1,000 followers in what I consider to be record time, and to celebrate I have two amazing prizes for you.  The first is from me. I have been shopping over the last month (thank you tax refund :) ),  and I have amassed quite a jewelry collection for one lucky winner.  The second is an ad package with fourteen of my favorite bloggers.

GRAND PRIZE ONE: $260 Jewelry Collection
This package includes four bracelets and two pairs of earrings from my favorite boutique here in New York City, a gorgeous pair of Kate Spade earrings, a J.Crew necklace and a pair of pave studs from Studio 33!  

GRAND PRIZE TWO: $260 worth of ad space!

The second grand prize is $260 worth of ad space on the blogs of these fourteen ladies.  Between them, they have over 20,000 GFC friends and over 100,000 followers with all of their social networks! 
Please go say hi to these pretty ladies!

I can't express my gratitude and appreciation for the community I've found here.  I've made entering easy with Rafflecopter below.  Winning entries will be verified.   This giveaway is open internationally and will remain open for 12 days.

Oh and as an added bonus, there will be three "mini" winners who will also receive a pair of earrings! 

Good luck and thanks for helping me reach this milestone!
