100th post giveaway!!

Wow, I can't believe I've already hit 100 posts! What started out as a little experiment on a whim has grown into  one of my most treasured daily activities. By 200 posts, I'll be calling blogging a passion :)

To celebrate, I thought I'd do a giveaway as a thank-you to all of my readers. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what would be the best thing to give away, and what I've settle on is a bit unconventional, but I think you'll love it.

The winner of this giveaway will win a package of custom-thrifted and "oh so sophi" goodies! 

Now what do I mean by "custom-thrifted"? Whoever wins will give me her (or his!) size, color preferences, and some likes/dislikes. I'll head out to my favorite thrift stores with the winner's specifications in mind and pick up a few awesome pieces. In addition, you'll get a little bag of my favorite nail polish, some of my favorite teas, a mix CD, one of my favorite books, a photo print or two, and a couple of other little surprises.

To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me what you're looking forward to this spring and your email so I can contact you if you win. That's it! You don't have to follow or Tweet or anything. But if you'd like to, I would genuinely appreciate it.

This is open to domestic and international readers :) Winner will be drawn on April 8th.

P.S. I'm bleaching my hair! Since I have a pixie cut already, a dramatic post-breakup haircut was limited to shaving my head, so I went for some crazy dye :P It's not done yet, but I can't wait to see how it turns out.

fab giveaway :)

Well I was looking forward to falling in love again... now it is spring and I am in love right now :p so now I think it would be nice if that love could be answered... (we'll see)

fashionwize, I am looking forward to start wearing skirts without tights... :)

I'm looking forward to more large format prints! Bold colors n soft fabric and unique designs ;) congrats on hitting 100...can I go thrifting with you? It'll be like our field trip but less freezing

Most exciting giveaway ever (I'm being totally honest). I always admire the things bloggers buy from thrift stores, a thing that I am not able to do cause there are no thrift stores in my country!

I'm looking forward to buying some skirts! I barely own any and so I'm trying to get out from my comfort zone.

That is the sweetest most awesome giveaway EVER!!! I am so excited. As far as this Spring goes, I'm looking forward to bare legs, mud puddles, and a trip back to Europe the end of April!

Can't wait to see your new hair!


Morgan said...

This is probably the most thoughtful giveaway I've ever run across. It's nice to know that you really care about the people who read & enjoy your blog on a daily basis.

Anyway, let's see my favorite thing about spring is getting to walk to the park with my friends to feed the ducks. Also, getting to wear dresses and skirts again.

Well, almost all contests prohibit family members from entering, and so I guess I can't enter. But I will take credit it for the idea for your giveaway! Spring started here about 6 weeks ago (not to gloat), and it's actually now extremely hot. I'm most looking forward to sporting a bikini and blinding everyone on the beach with my printer paper-colored skin, if we can manage to get to the coast next month!

Way to go! :)

I'm looking forward to Spring for the rain. I find myself loving bad weather more than good weather.. all.the.time!
And of course finally not having to wear a thousand layers, I love them but they had their chance!

Goodness, hitting one hundred posts is such an exciting and huge milestone! Congrats and I wish you many more hundred posts, heh :)

I would have to say that this is proabably one of the most creative and exciting giveaways I've ever entered through blogging! Creating a custom prize bag is just too darn cute!

The thing I'm looking forward to for spring the most is going on wonderful photo shoot adventures. Here in Ohio it has been so snowy and yucky for five months, and I'm just itching for warm, sunny weather so I can discover new, beautiful places to take my photos at. I searching for a railroad, empty flower field, and a water fall this spring/summer!

I"m looking forward to finally telling my best friend that I love him. It's been far too long and now that we're both adults, we've been out of high school for a while, we have jobs... I think it's about time that we straighten some stuff out. =)
And I"m looking forward to all the sun that's starting to come out, the green coming back on the trees and pretty spring smells everywhere...
OH! And being able to wear skirts to school again! It won't be too cold anymore! Yayyy!


Mahogany said...

I'm looking forward to welcoming all the new Spring workers at my job! We're all really like family there, and we're getting a bunch of new hires soon. =)

I'm looking forward to wearing bright colors, and some florals. I'll give the 80's a go too. I'm hoping I'll get a job soon so there's lots of things to look forward to for spring.

I am looking forward to warm weather and being able to sit out on the green to do reading! And I'm really looking forward to wearing shoes other than my boots, hiking sneakers, and other such sensible things.

I am looking forward to my allergies going away, the bluebonnets coming out, and my business starting to BOOM. I am looking forward to becoming rich this spring:) I am also looking forward to seeing how your style changes now that you're BLONDE!

Lea said...

I'm looking forward to an easier term than any I've been having lately, Dresses without tights and more simple outfits, since layering up won't be a necessity. Love your blog, it's super adorable; I am definitely following you via google :)

<3 Lea

Dang, this is a great giveaway.
It's been so rainy these past few weeks in California that I'm just ready for it to be sunny. I want blue skies, bare legs, and picnic kinda weather. As crazy as this may seem, I think the thing I'm most excited for about Spring time is that it's running season!! I'm doing two half marathon's this spring and I cannot be more excited :D

Alysa Kimiko said...

Brinny said...

Oh wow, I absolutely love the concept of this giveaway!

Since I'm in the southern hemisphere, I'm actually so excited about colder weather -- I'm really looking forward to finally being about to wear tights! :)


frankie said...

i was really looking forward to going on a missions trip to mexico, but i've done that already! i guess i am now just looking forward to summer. spring is a busy season for me in everything, which means work too, which in turn means more money so i guess thats good. i also love the look of my backyard in spring.

Sydney, The Rabbit-Hearted Girl said...

I am definitely looking forward to warmer weather and being able to roll my windows down while i'm driving! it's such a little thing, but it makes me happy :)

Laura said...

This is such a creative and thoughtful giveaway Sophi- I love it! This spring I'm most looking forward to the month of May. By then I will be done with all my work and plan to spend my last few weeks at college hanging out with my good friends and generally having a blast :D

Tanvi B said...

This is the sweetest giveaway EVER! <3

Here's to why I'm looking forward to Spring:

Spring is the season of love and joy, and this one is my milestone. I start College in two months and everyone says "You'll be meeting new people! You'll find a new love!"
What I'm really, REALLY looking forward to is...discovering and falling in love with myself all over again.
Spring awakens all our senses. Hope all my painful memories merge into happy, wonderful ones. :)

Here's to a blissful, pretty spring!
