If this isn’t one of the sweetest and so appropriately timed giveaways….

Our favorite Stella & Dot gal is back with a holiday giving inspired giveaway.  One lucky winner will receive a $50 gift certificate to use in Annette’s Stella & Dot shop AS WELL AS another $50 gift credit to send to a friend as a little surprise gift!
Doesn’t that just give you the warm and fuzzies?? 
And in case you’re wondering, there are lots of pretty Stella & Dot goodies to be had for $50 or less.  Here’s a little gift board to get you started.
There’s even a whole section on Stella & Dot devoted to pieces under $50, so go check it out and get some holiday shopping done.  And I just have to say a HUGE thank you to Annette for surprising me with my favorite S&D necklace last week.  I have been wearing it everywhere and getting so many compliments!  I love how it’s adjustable in length!
Isn’t she the best?
Now, here’s how you enter the giveaway:
{Please leave a comment for each entry}
1) Show some S&D love and tell us what you’d buy
2) Tell us who you’d send the extra $50 to
This giveaway will end Friday night and we’ll announce the winner this weekend.  Good luck!

Welcome to Sally King Benedict’s very first blog sale!

Sally Benedict’s vibrant and sophisticated abstracts and nudes have garnered attention from the likes of House Beautiful, Coastal Living, Garden & Gun, Charleston Magazine, Matchbook Magazine, and many others.  Here’s just a glimpse of Sally’s recent press.

First up, let’s make one lucky girl’s day and announce the winner of the Pretty Mommy giveaway!!

Congratulations to Ellen from Lotus Clouds!
Email me at and we’ll get you hooked up. 

For the rest of you, don’t forget about the “looklingerlove” 25% off discount code to Pretty Mommy’s shop good through the end of November.  Happy shopping!


So we’ve all been seeing a lot about Jewelmint and Stylemint, but have you seen that there is now a Shoemint?  It’s Rachel Bilson’s debut shoe collection, AND they’re giving away a free pair of shoes per month for 12 months to 5 different winners.  I mean what do you have to lose?  All you do is sign up by giving your email right here.


Love these ladies.  They recently surprised me with a baby shower,  and I was soooo 100% surprised.  I thought I was heading to an oyster roast!  They knew this so they dressed down for me too :) What beautiful hosts I have, right?

{Jenn, Danielle, Me, Gray, and Manda}
On Friday Josh and I celebrated our 5 year wedding anniversary.  I’m the luckiest woman in the world to have him as my partner in life.  Before a recent presentation, Josh was introduced as the 2nd toughest, smartest, and bull headed attorney in Charleston.  I’m considered to be quite bull headed myself, so however we work so well together is beyond me, but luckily we just do.  This weekend I’ve been remembering our amazing wedding weekend.  At our rehearsal dinner, my father in law read this Winnie the Pooh quote and I thought I’d share here.  So sweet.
Lastly, anyone else starting to feel the thrill of the holiday season upon us?  I’m so excited.

I hope ya’ll enjoy your Sunday!

Excitement Alert:

You know the super fabulous artist Sally King Benedict that is popping up EVERYWHERE these days from magazines to online?  The very one who’s art graces the walls of the most gorgeous homes… which we all covet.  Well this Monday we ALL have the opportunity to have a little Sally splendid of our very own.

LLL + Sally Benedict = Small Framed Works!
Right here on Look Linger Love, Sally will be offering a smattering of pieces
ranging in size & style with a price point that starts at $125. 
Just in time for the holidays!
Here’s a teensy peek at just some of the pieces you’ll see next week!

It’s going to be good.  These are obviously all originals, so once they’re gone I’m sad to say that they’re gone.  {Pssst you’ll want to act quick!}  So mark it in your calendars for this Monday, 11/21/11. Oh and for a little weekend reading, check out Sally’s Home Tour & Interview on Glitter Guide.  It’s Fabulous!  Be sure to check out Sally’s website too!

But then I saw these Opening Ceremony Glittery Suede Forever Be Happy Heels.  Pretty sure they’ll be at the top of my list.  I mean, this is a must need item, am I right?

In both colors.  But if I had to choose, I guess I’d go black.  Er maybe cognac.  I think…  LOVE.
And on a completely self indulgent note… I was pretty darn ecstatic to find my face on Harper’s Bazaar alongside Lauren Santo Domingo.  Never thought I’d see that.
One last thing, late in the day yesterday I posted an incredible Pretty Mommy giveaway.  Trust me, if you didn’t visit here last night then you want to check it out.  If not for the giveaway then for the awesome promo code!
