{holyland's treasures giveaway + a cute sleeping baby}

maybe this is a funny thing to say that i've had my eye out for these past two years, but here it is:


the perfect nose ring.

true story. you can laugh now. or just think i'm ridiculous.

i am of the belief that facial jewelry should subtly enhance. i want people to see me before they see sparkles on my face.

so not too shiny. large. or neon. that's not so much to ask, right?
the keiosks in the mall weren't giving me much help. my diamonds always fell out {is it just me?! maybe i'm just buying cheap stuff...}

so, all i have to say is, i have found them!

this little etsy shop - holyland's treasures has beautiful ones.

etsy has become my go-to for a lot more things like this. for a lot of reasons:
-you're getting something that someone took the time to craft themselves. awesome.
-you're supporting small individuals & businesses. double awesome.
-& the quality of the items are better than anything i would buy at the store. at least that has been my experience so far.

all of that to say i have been super happy with them!
i got a gold & silver hoop & heart stud. & they have really pretty ear cuff's that i love as well!

so maybe this will help someone out that has been looking for just the right ear/nose/whatever ring.
& you can save yourself a trip to the mall, too :)


{first day i've dressed him in a real outfit. aka not a sleeper. thanks nicole ;) }


& for an extra special something, Holylands Treasures is giving away one small gold hoop
{like the one i'm wearing above & can be worn as an earcuff, too. not just for noses} to a lucky someone!

To Enter:
-just leave a comment! you have one week to enter & i'll pick a random winner next week!

  5. Super cute! I had a nose ring for 2 years and a stud for 1 before that and I know what you mean about looking for the "perfect"one, it's a big deal...it's on your face. :) Those are lovely, I didn't really know about gold ones until recently. I had to take mine out for work but I saw that she has a nose cuff on there - great idea! I may have to check that out...

  8. Oh, Holyland's Treasures is exactly what I've been looking for! I've had nose ring woes since I got it pierced over a year ago. After losing too many studs to count, I just switched over to a hoop but it must be too small or something because doesn't seem to be jiving with my skin. :/ I'd love to win but even if I don't, thanks for sharing!

    Also, I've followed your blog for a while. Your little one is precious. :)

  9. GREAT giveaway! I've been looking for the motivation to get my nose pierced again (I had it done a while ago) and THIS is it. Your nose ring is so dainty and cute. You're totally right, they see YOU before they see your sparkle. :) Perfect! (And it goes great with your cute sleeping baby. He's too sweet!)

  11. I love your blog, and never comment not wanting to be creepy, but I thought this was the most perfect occasion. Your life and family are beautiful, and I've been praying for Isaac from far away!

  12. Ooh! Thanks for posting about this! Even if I'm not the lucky winner, I'd really like to pick up some of these! I've had a piercing for about 5 years and have yet to find jewelry that I really love. Looks like this could be just the right thing!

  13. I absolutely love their ear cuffs. I have one from another seller on etsy and love it! Now I want to buy an ear cuff in every design from holyland's treasures.

  16. So excited about this giveaway! I have always wanted a nose ring and I was so excited to see that this can be worn even without piercings. Love, Love, Love! Thanks for the opportunity! elleb@inbox.com

  17. That is so cute! I agree that it is so hard to find a good nose ring. I lost my first diamond one I got at HTC in Tempe and have bought many since then that just didn't cut it, I finally just went back and bought another one from them. Plus they will always replace/rebend it if the stone falls out. But I will definitely check out that seller, I can't resist a good Etsy store:)

  19. Love it! Simple yet sophisticated!

  20. "i want people to see me before they see sparkles on my face" - totally agree! I don't ever want ot be described as "the girl with the nose piercing" haha! And Isaac seems to be getting cuter with every picture!

  33. I kind of love your nose ring! I've always wanted one but never actually done it, and now I want to again :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. That shop has such cute little pieces! The healing period for my piercing is nearly up so I'm on the hunt for a dainty ring to replace the rather ungainly basic stud in place at the moment :)

  35. I'd use it as an ear cuff because i can't rock a nose ring like you can. Love the detail that goes into the jewelry.
