I won a giveaway!! + review

Hi :)

So I recently started reading a new blog called Emma Deer, and I am just in love with that space.
Last month, Emily (the beauty behind the Emma Deer blog; also known as Em or Emma) had a giveaway on her blog for a $20 store credit to the Whale & Wasp Etsy shop, run by Amber of Whale & Wasp blog.

I entered almost everyday...

...and I won!!

(P.S. How cute is that GIF?!! I was just as excited to see it as I was to see the email in my inbox lol!!)

I was so shocked and happy because I always enter giveaways and I usually don't win so this was a very pleasant surprise :)

I've admired Amber's shop for a while, but never had the chance to purchase anything from her. After I found out that I had won the giveaway, I went straight to her Etsy and placed my order!

32% OFF - Urban Ditsy Wristlet

I had a really hard time picking something from her shop... All of her pouches and hair bows were calling out to me! Ultimately what sold me on this beauty was the fact that I have been looking for a clutch type of purse for a while now, and the colors of the cute flower print with the bright teal zipper were just perfect!

I placed my order and it was shipped out within a couple of days. She lives in Canada and I live in the U.S. so I was expecting for there to be a bit of waiting before it came, but I was so surprised to see it in my mailbox 7 business days later!

I've been using it everyday since :)

I took some pictures the day I got it and wanted to share how beautiful it is with you guys!
(Sorry in advance for the not-so-good-looking pictures... I only have my phone camera to take pictures right now.)
 I love the inside fabric! And I love that she's added her own personal touch by adding the name of her shop sewn into the inside.
She even included a nice little note as well as her business card.

The clutch is perfect size for the essentials; right now I am using it to hold my keys, phone (not pictured because I am using it for the pictures), receipts and drivers license... maybe a candy or 2 lol

The wrist strap is so convenient because as a mom, I always have my hands full so this is a great feature. I have pretty wide wrists as well so I am happy that my hand fits through the strap, but that the strap is not so big that it will fall off my wrist if I wave my arm around.

It is also made very well. The fabrics are good quality and the zipper doesn't stick when you try to zip it open or closed. I can tell she took her time to make this and didn't rush through it just to make a sale.

I am one happy girl!!! And I will definitely be a repeat customer!

Please go check out her shop! You will not be disappointed! :)

Thanks again to Emily for having the giveaway and thanks to Amber for hosting it and being so great to order from!
