This Giveaway is extremely special, as it supports an amazing cause. The Gwen Marie Collection was launched just a little over a year ago. The inception of the GMC started when owner and designer, Gwen Rich was diagnosed with an incurable stage four breast cancer. In 2012, her world was turned upside down. While there currently is no cure, she has fought to slow the progression of the disease, and live out every moment of her life. Gwen is highly motivated, and will do everything she can to make sure she will be able to enjoy many more of life's special events- graduations, weddings, grandchildren, etc. The Gwen Marie collection gives her a purpose everyday, to do something important, and make a difference in the time she has left.

The collection specifically raises money and awareness for breast cancer. Four of the handbags are named after cancer survivors.  Gwen is passionate about helping others reduce their risks of breast cancer or getting a late stage diagnosis such as herself.
To date the GMC has made one donation to the beneficiary, The University Of Chicago Medicine. Four of the handbags are named after cancer survivors. The Gwen Marie collection prides itself by making luxury handbags made in America. 

 Don't forget to shop the collection for Mother's Day! All who enter the giveaway will receive a special promo code to shop the Gwen Marie Collection at a discounted rate. Check back Sunday for details, and to see who won!

The denim on denim trend is one of the biggest trends of spring + summer 2016. Two very easy ways to rock this trend: 1. Add a pop of color 2. Make sure the denim you wear on the bottom is slightly darker than your denim on top. Shop this Blank NYC Cold Shoulder top {here} from Guys N Gals.. one of my favorite stores in Michigan! You can also shop other independent boutiques at Styleshack!
