Now that you've met our amazing bloggers and our exciting sponsors, let's get down to business. I am am excited to announce our first assignment:
Elizabeth, Joanna, Danielle, Natalie, "Miss" James, Jen, Sharmadean, Melisa, and Aura have until 11:59 pm, June 20th to post their Round 1 entries on their respective blogs, before we move on to Round Two later that week.
Our goal is to encourage as much freedom of expression as possible in the blogger's entries, while providing them with items that fuel their imaginations. In that spirit, we have one simple guideline:
- Each item received from the Styleathon sponsors must make at least one appearance in at least one round of the Styleathon.
The competition will culminate, in late July, with the announcement of a Grand Prize Winner, chosen by our panel of judges (you'll meet them soon).
Grand Prize Package
- The iPad 2, in winner's choice of color
- A collaboration with Lynne Banach, Owner of Sakura Bloom, designing a signature collection of slings (a portion of the proceeds from the line will go to the winning blogger's charity of choice)
- Custom portrait of winner and baby in a Sakura Bloom sling, by Samantha Hahn
- Custom Marla Cielo handbag designed exclusively for the Styleathon winner by Andrea Tobin.
- $250 gift certificate to Lilla P and personalized shopping spree with the Owner and Creative Director of Lilla P, Pauline Nakios
- A pair of frames from Selima Optique, chosen for the winner by Selima Salaun, herself
And now, for our first Styleathon Reader Giveaway!
I will randomly select one winner from the eligible entrants. The winner can then select their favorite sling from any of Sakura Bloom's linen collections, and will also receive a $250 Lilla P gift card!
Here's how to enter:
1. Leave a brief comment on this post telling us about a mother in your life whose style you admire.
2. Be sure to leave your email address (even if you think I know it already!)
The deadline to enter is 11:59 EST, Sunday, June 12.
Thanks, and Good Luck!
