Happy Blogiversary! | + Giveaway

Yes, it's April 13th. On this day last year, I posted my first outfit on my first exclusively-fashion blog. Even though there have been times I just felt “meh” about the whole thing, times when I was frustrated with myself for not looking the way I was supposed to, and times I wanted to quit. . . . There's just something about piecing an outfit together that makes me happier, more confident, and more at peace with my body.

I'm so thankful for all of you who've decided to read my blog.

In honor of this auspicious event, I am hosting a giveaway. Yes, my very first on Dance A Real! You have the chance to win one of your choice of Jamberry nail wraps. What are Jamberry nail wraps? They're this cool company that sells designs which are so much more creative than your average nail polish and are totally Pinterest-worthy -- without all the tears, mess-ups, and wanting-to-rip-your-hair-out-ness of the designs one finds on Pinterest. Before my sister became a consultant with them, I was pretty “meh” about the whole thing (an emotion I feel frequently, it seems ;)), but now I've tried them for myself and can honestly say there's nothing else like them on the market today! Here are some of my favorites:

Adam's Favorite (Glossy) - which I already own :)
Black & White Quad - I have this one too.
Happy Go Lucky
You get to choose any one of the nail wraps on the Jamberry site for this giveaway, and I'll have it shipped to you! I can't wait. I'm excited :) Follow the rules below to enter, peeps, and -- happy #DanceAReal blogiversary!
