Official Blog Anniversary + American Apparel Clutch Giveaway! (CLOSED!)

Today officially marks Those Things they Said’s first birthday! Again, I would like to thank you all for your kinds words and input during this last chapter, and I’m looking forward to our interactions for our next year!

In honor of anniversary, I am giving away an American Apparel clutch! This is a universal blogger favorite that I’m very pleased to be giving away! I don’t even have one of these myself, and now that I’ve seen it, I definitely need to pick one of these up for myself! This one, though, I want to award to one of my followers to show my appreciation!

The quality of this thing is perfect. The gorgeous taupe leather is super high quality and if you’ve been looking to get one, I’d totally recommend you invest. Or, you can try to win this one ;) (PS…the leather is SUPER soft. When you retrieve your gloss from your clutch, you’ll momentarily be sticking your hand in heaven. I promise. Sort of.)

1. You must be a follower on Bloglovin’ or through Google Reader.
2. You also need to be a follower on Twitter.
3. I’ll need the email address(es) and/or usernames for those accounts.
4. All of this in a comment, please! :)
5. And sorry, US readers only.

The winner of the giveaway will be chosen on Friday, July 1st, 2011! Friday, July 8th, 2011! (DEADLINE EXTENDED!) So enter away! I’ll be using a random number generator to select the winner. (i.e. The generator will give me the number 47, and then the 47th comment will be the winner!)

Again, I’d like to thank you for your continued interest in TTTS! You are all the best!

Edit: Winner had been chosen! Click here to see who!

Congrats on the first birthday of your blog! It looks great and the giveaway looks nice – too bad I’m not in the US!

Thank you very much! I’m so sorry! I would totally open this up to non-US residents but I already spent more than I should have on this and I don’t want shipping to be an arm and a leg. Maybe next time, though! :)
