Beat the Winter Blues!

Bows & Sequins Beat the Winter Blues Giveaway Series

January is said to be the most depressing month of the year. But you guys, we’ve made it through! This one was a rough one for me, but I’m looking forward to a new month, a clean slate, and counting down the days until spring. (I realize I shouldn’t hold my breath seeing as I live in Chicago…) Anywho, February is always a short month, but I want to make it extra sweet this year! I’ve teamed up with over a dozen of my favorite brands and retailers to make this month really fun and to officially beat those winter blues! Especially with everything going on in the world right now, it seems like just about everyone could use a some cheering up and an extra little something to look forward to. Right?! So let’s get down to the details…

Starting tomorrow (Wednesday, February 1st), there will be a giveaway live on the blog every single day (including weekends!) until Valentine’s Day! Prizes are all over the board… my favorite jewelry brands, a pink bag with a well-placed bow, the key component of my morning lattes, my go-to shop for all things classically preppy, my favorite skincare shop, swimwear, some vintage glamour, a weekend staycation complete with spa treatments and dinner, and loads more! Like, really good stuff you guys!

This month is all about L-O-V-E. Whether it’s self-love, friends & family, or the real deal… Throw that shit like confetti. We could all use a little extra! I hope these freebies help to spread the love a little bit this month, whether you’re wanting to win for yourself or to send someone special an unexpected surprise.

Here’s how it will go down… Each giveaway post will go live at 12:00am CST. Each giveaway will last for 48 hours, meaning each giveaway will be ending at 11:59pm CST the day after. Make sense?

Entering each giveaway will be SO easy… There will be a little widget at the end of the post that you simply click through to enter!

So be sure to check back in tomorrow to kick things off and remember to come back often so you don’t miss out on any of the fun and fancies. 🙂

PS: All ‘regular’ content will be going live at 6:30am CST each day, too.

Any questions? Let me know in the comments below!
