This week, I'm hosting TWO amazing giveaways with two of my favorite companies! 

The first giveaway is with Heart and Sol Designs, one of my favorite stores on Etsy. Enter using Rafflecopter below to win a hand-stamped aluminum bangle personalized with whatever you like!
I ordered a bangle similar to this from Heart and Sol Designs last year and it's one of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I recently ordered another bangle with my favorite quote from my sorority's symphony to wear after disaffiliation!

Run by owner Lisa out of her Los Angeles home, Heart and Sol Designs creates stunning and high-quality hand-stamped jewelry. Previously working in marketing and sales, Lisa traded in her terrible commute and long work days for a job she's excited to get out of bed for. Aside from creating beautiful hand-stamped jewelry, Lisa is an avid photographer, dog lover, world traveler, and cook! Lisa boasts she "make[s] a cranberry and pistachio biscotti that [she] dunks in white chocolate that can bring a tear to your eye." 

Lisa is all about customer satisfaction, and that's what makes her different from company's similar to Heart and Sol. "Customer service is very, very important to me. Certainly, I am running a business with a goal of making money. But NEVER at the expense of customer satisfaction. It is more important to me that people have the experience of being taken care of when they do business with me and my shop."

Lisa's favorite thing about her business is the incredible stories she heards from her customers. "I am reminded every day of how fragile and how amazing and how strong we are as human beings," Lisa said. "A day rarely goes by that I am not moved to tears by someone’s story. So, I guess that’s my favorite thing about my company – hearing people’s stories and then having the honor of creating something for them. I am remarkably fortunate!"



My second giveaway this week is for a monogrammed notebook and set of monogrammed notecards from Emily Ley courtesy my favorite online store Pea Pod Paper and Gifts! Enter using Rafflecopter below!

Pea Pod owner, Susan (this woman is seriously awesome!) sent me this absolutely adorable spiral bound notebook and matching notecards with my monogram. I love this green and coral combination from Emily Ley (also one of my new favorite stationery designers). Pea Pod also carries other Emily Ley items, like iPhone cases and monogrammed trays. You can browse all of the Emily Ley designs on the Pea Pod site here!

This notebook is PERFECT for the new school year and has enough pages to last all semester long. I plan on using mine for note-taking during my sorority meetings but hope to order more to use for class! This notebook wouldn't be complete without the matching notecards. I can't wait to send these out as thank you cards to CP partners, friends, and family!

As a special offer from Pea Pod, Susan is offering Chicago Prepster readers 10% off her entire website with the code CHICAGO! 
(excludes Lilly Pulitzer, Jonathan Adler, and Dylan's Candy Bar items)

Enter both these giveaways using Rafflecopter! Ends next Wednesday at midnight!
