Congrats to Alicia Rule, winner of my little giveaway!

Here is what she shared for her love of Spring…

I love spring because it means warm sunshine after a long Colorado winter. Farmer’s markets are going to start soon, cold season is coming to a close, my heating bill is going to soon go away, and Easter chocolate to top it all off!

Thanks to all who entered. I loved seeing all your Spring favorites popping up on the post.

There will certainly be more of these giveaways, so keep your eyes peeled and don’t give up!

Happy Friday…the weekend is teasing us!

The lucky winner of the rosette bib necklace is…….

{letters via}

Yay, Leah! Congrats!

Leah blogs over at Leah’s Thoughts…go over and check out her thoughts on recipes, parenting, creativity, holidays, literature, and all of life’s other whatnots.

Leah, I will pop these goodies in the mail to you…..enjoy!

Thanks to all you lovely ladies for entering ~ look for another giveaway closer to the holidays.

Have a fantastic Wednesday!


I’m totally tardy to the rolled rosette bib statement necklace party. And why didn’t I start making these earlier?

But I have made a few now and I LOVE how I can throw one together in a jiffy.

I am giving away my latest one along with a coordinating rosette ring.

This one features 6 rosettes in various sizes in a sort of asymetrical layout and hangs on a black grosgrain ribbon which lets you choose the length you want ~ just tie it in a pretty bow where it fits you best.

The fabric is black with bits of hot pink, yellow, orange, turquoise and white and will add a fun subtle punch of color to your wardrobe year round. It would look darling with my all time favorite outfit ~ a crisp white top, some comfy old jeans and a pair of fun flats, wedges or of course flip flops!

The ring is a one-size-fits-most deal and has a matching mini rosette perched on top. Again, will add a little somethin’ somethin’ to a casual, everyday outfit and compliment the necklace perfectly.

{not a professional hand model!}

Giveaway is open until midnight {PST} Tuesday, August 9th 2011. I will randomly select and announce the winner on Wednesday morning, August 10th 2011.

To enter, please {Like} Flip Flop Follies on Facebook if you haven’t already and leave me a comment telling me your favorite thing you’ve done this summer!

That’s it! Go enter now….

Don’t be tardy to the Giveaway Party!


Happy Wednesday!

Today I’m going to be wandering a bit…a little of this and a little of that.

We have a large-ish landing at the top of the stairs where the kids watch DVDs on a 13″ TV and read books. I want to make it a little more {nookie} and have pillows on the floor…maybe a basket of rolled up blankets to cuddle in during the cooler months.

I went to my new BFF, Pinterest, and took a little nook look…



Now I want a little Mama Nook! Love this bright and airy one…


Or this cozy one…


I love the idea of a reading nook where you can sit and read trashy mags and sip your morning coffee. Anyone read Bethenny Frankel’s {A Place of Yes}? Been meaning to pick it up.


I’m on a gift wrapping kick. I am kind of over the whole gift bag thing. Yes, I know it’s easy and a good way to recycle but I love the idea of a good old fashioned wrapped gift.

How about these for inspiration…


[Vintage Vibrant]


[Scary Clown Balloons]


Last time I was at {99¢ Only} I picked up a roll of brown packing paper. Going to use it LOTS for Christmas this year and wanted some early inspiration, but you can do ANYTHING with it. How cute is the balloon bow?

I seriously had to {exit} Pinterest. Everything just kept getting cuter and cuter.

Just enter {reading nooks} and {gift wrapping} and you’ll see what I mean.


I am working on a little giveaway and hope to have it posted by Friday. Since the last several giveaways were Havaianas, I thought I’d do a little homemade goodie. I hope that you’ll check back and enter to win! 😉

Let me just say that in the process of making this little goodie, I burnt my fingertips to a crisp. My glue gun is in the naughty corner right now. Not user error at all……..

To make matters worse, what I thought was glue was actually a blister and I pulled it off….um, ouch!


Is anybody else anxious for Fall? I am finding myself searching for autumnal and Halloween inspiration already. Which is good because if I wait too long, I am more likely not going to be able to carry it out. If I get the ideas early, I can get a head start on all this {F}alloween cuteness.


{at least not today}


Today is Day 9 with Jill…last night I did it at 10:08pm. I was NOT going to bed without doing my dumbbell rows and butt kicks.


Kinda wish I was going to BlogHer this weekend in San Diego….if you’re going, have a blast in my hometown!


I think this Hump Day afternoon calls for a nice iced coffee…you should have one too!


And The Oscar Goes To…



The nominees for the mint Havaianas in the {flip flop} category were:

Amy, Shauna, Vicki, Kathy, Leah, Michele, Erma, Victoria, Trish & Roxanne

Thank you Ladies for entering and sharing your Spring favorites.

Random.org selected the {winner}, but you’re ALL winners in my book!

And the mint Havaianas go to………

Shauna from Nor Cal!


I hope you prepared your acceptance speech! 😉

I will get them packaged up and into the mail to you!


Again, thanks for reading and entering…I will be doing another giveaway to kick off Summer, so please keep trying!

Looks like it’s going to be another splendid day in So Cal…

…may YOU have a splendid day wherever you are!

It’s Friday!


A {Mint} Of A Giveaway

It’s time for another {Havaianas} giveaway.

The weather will be warming up real soon and you need a new pair of buttery soft Havs to show off those freshly pedicured piggies of yours!

I am giving away a pair of {mint} colored Havaianas Top in size 9 {Hav sizing 41-42}. Embellished with a vintage inspired pearl & rhinestone flower.

They’re simply adorable and so Spring!

To enter, please {Like} Flip Flop Follies on Facebook and/or follow on Twitter. Then come back here and leave a comment telling me your favorite Spring tradition or something that you’re going to do in the months leading up to Summer.

I’ll start…we’re looking forward to spending our Saturday mornings watching Holden play t-ball this Spring. He’s been so patient tagging along to Elliott’s dance classes over the past year  ~ it’s his turn to partake in an activity and we are so excited!

You may enter until midnight Thursday, March 31st, 2011.

I will randomly choose and announce a winner on Friday, April 1st….no foolin’!

Good Luck!

A {Well} Deserved Winner

Project 320 was, yet again, a success!

Many thanks to the ladies behind it all…and all the generosity displayed to bring clean & safe {water} to those desperately in need.

The random.org results are in and flipflopfollies has a winner:

Ellen from Stockholm!

Yay and congrats! So thrilled to send some Havs all the way to Sweden!

Thank you, thank you for your donation and entries.

The goldies and a couple rolled rosette pins coming your way {once you send your address to amy{at}flipflopfollies{dot}com ~ thanks!}

Also, thank you to Shauna for your entry. I will be hosting another Havaianas giveaway to welcome Spring, so please check back from time to time to enter that drawing!

{Shauna, I assumed that you were entering the giveaway for the gold Havs….if you were interested in the black ones, then YOU are the winner of those! Please let me know….however, if you know someone that these cuties would fit [again size 4/5 US, but they do run a bit big], they’re yours and I’d be happy to pop them in the mail to you!}

What a great way to start out the week before Christmas.
