Bookish Bingo: Summer 2015

I am so excited to debut Bookish Bingo on Pretty Deadly Reviews. This feature is my brain baby and I knew I couldn’t let it go.

The idea is, for $13 (plus $2.99 shipping) they will send you a monthly box with jewelry relating to a different theme. The boxes are valued at at least $30, […]

BEA is basically my favorite time of the year because that’s when I get to see your beautiful faces! So many of my friends are ones I’ve made through blogging and we live all over the country (world, even!) so it’s wonderful to have everyone in […]
