#blogable giveaway


Perhaps you've already heard the buzz on twitter or facebook, but I'm so excited for Mocha Club & FashionABLE (the groups behind my Pixie Project last summer) to be pairing up with some of my favorite bloggers and artists for a trip to Ethiopia!  They leave Saturday!


Leather launches 8/7!
Being nearly 8 months pregnant, I'll be staying state side as the team's "virtual traveler."  Make sure to follow me on twitter (@blairita) as I'll be hosting a twitter chat (Tues. 8/13 @ 1pm Central) facilitating chat with our travelers and giving away some fun swag too!

I however am so pumped for this group to travel over and get to meet face to face with some of the women that my Pixie Project raised money to help rehabilitate from the sex industry.  These women have remarkable stories of triumph and hope and are the skilled hands behind the Live fashionABLE line.

the Giveaway...
In honor of the team traveling to see the work first-hand and this week's launch of fashionABLE leather, I'm giving away 2 amazing products: the Meseret scarf (perfect for these warmer months) and the brand new Tigist leather clutch! One lucky winner will get both products!!
Enter using the rafflecopter form below.  One winner takes both prizes.  If you want to increase your odds of winning, make sure to visit each member of the rest of the team -- we are ALL giving away both pieces this week!

[Winner will be contacted by email & have 36 hours to respond before prize is forfeited and new winner is chosen.   Good luck all!]

p.s. This is Meseret.  All the scarves are named after the women who are part of the program in Ethiopia.  This is one of the beautiful faces the rest of the team will get to meet.  I hope to give her a hug one day too!


p.ps. Don't forget about the twitter chat w/ me & the rest of the #blogABLE team.  We'll have more great prizes to giveaway.  Tuesday 8/13 @ 1pm Central!

  10. I roll my clothes (instead of fold them) to save space OR put them into an extra large ziploc and seal it shut! It creates so much more room for other travel essentials!

  23. What an incredible trip and how lovely to find two companies that help others!

  24. My tip: Don't forget your time with Jesus! I tend to put that special alone time on the back burner when I'm traveling because a) I'm exhausted and b) I'm never alone. But traveling = tension, and time in the Word is the best way to keep calm, cool, and collected!
