Birthday Giveaway Week!

Happy Wednesday, Penny Darlings!

Let me just start with the boring stuff so we can get to the goods! Ha! Check me out on Instagram here! I also started a Twitter account! Find that here! Follow Preston’s brand new fashion Instagram here! I also have a selling Instagram page where I sell some of my old clothes/styles so that I don’t drown in my own wardrobe. I just listed a few new things – so check that out!

This is a VERY exciting Wednesday, if you didn’t know it!

My 26th birthday is next Wednesday, May 23rd! And I am excited and a little nervous!

However, this is a SUPER exciting week (starting today!) with you all!

Let’s talk about the ruuuules!



All giveaways will take place on Instagram between 5/16 and 5/22.

Winners will all be announced on 5/25.

5/16 – UnderSummers – $100 Gift Card

Ya’ll know my TOTAL OBSESSION with UnderSummers. I wrote about them here….and here….and here. These are THE thigh chafing solution. I wear these EVERY SINGLE DAY (that I’m rocking a dress at least!). These have seriously been my FAVORITE thigh chafing product I’ve ever had. They’re cute, comfy, easy care (laundry safe!), and not visible under 99% of my dresses! I have them in six colors! UnderSummers is also joining us as one of our Partial Sponsors for this birthday week! Give it up for UnderSummers!

If you are a gal that has EVER had the dreaded fire thighs everytime you want to wear a dress in the summer, are going to be walking in something fancy, outside weddings, beach evenings (it helped when I had sunburn!), or even for a day walking in the city – UnderSummers are seriously the best solution I’ve ever tried!


And their social media pages always need some loving!


5/17 – Eloquii – $150 Gift Card

Ya’ll know that I am equally obsessed with Eloquii. I lovelovelove Eloquii. They make plus sized total couture without breaking my bank! Check out some of the styles I’ve done with Eloquii here and here and here!

Eloquii has also pulled me out of the denim-avoidance-trend that I was stuck in for years! Eloquii also supplied me with some fabulous sequin joggers, some of my fave rompers, a bride to be top, and more!

5/20 – Avenue – $150 Outfit Giveaway

You all know my long time love affair with Avenue! Avenue was one of the early days of plus clothing and have continued to adapt with trends and styles for all ages! I’ve gotten some of my best pieces from Avenue (for real, their underpants were GAME CHANGERS), my fave pajama shorts, and even my first pair of jeans in almost five years!

I seriously lovelovelove having a brick and mortar store just down the street that I can shop clearance, try on new arrivals, and even get some style tips!
