New Blog Design & IHOD Giveaway

I was trying to keep quiet about the changes on my blog until it was completely finished, but I have to admit, I have not done a great job with hiding my excitement! :) All the design credits go to the amazing, talented and beautiful Anna from In Honor of Design.


Anna is one of those multifaceted women who I admire. Next to being a mommy, she's an incredibly sweet blogger, a super-talented graphic designer and she even runs her own online store full of cute jewelries, accessories and headbands. And.... drumroll please....

Anna is offering an item of your choice to one lucky Gypsy*Diaries reader to celebrate my new blog design! 

These are some of my favorites but you can choose any Ladies or Little Miss items from her store! :)

To enter please visit IHOD, follow Gypsy*Diaries on Google and/or Bloglovin and leave a comment below telling me what would you choose from the IHOD store if you were the winner :) Entries are accepted until Saturday 8pm GMT, the winner will be announced on Sunday. The giveaway is open to readers anywhere in the globe! ;) GOOD LUCK Babes!!!

P.S: For extra entries feel free to post/tweet/facebook about the giveaway! ;)

P.P.S: Thank you Anna for giving a new life to my dear blog and thanks for your patience and being who you are! ;) LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!

P.P.P.S: If you’re also interested in sponsoring Gypsy*Diaries please email me at gypsydiaries@gmail.com and I’ll be happy to give you rates and details!

Hi Gabby ! I don't think this is my first comment, but I have a goldfish memory, so we'll say it is :) I'm happy to comment for the first time, then :D
I'm following you on Bloglovin' (my blog is Hummingbird Cocoon) and I would like to take my chance in the fabulous giveaway you're talking about !
So, if I was the lucky winner, I would like the Pretty Pair Necklace, with the bronze leaf and the cabachon Charm in the Translucent Mint Green color !
Because it's just perfect, I love the color and... well, i think it'll be shorter to just tell I love it ! :)
Love,
Adelythe

Love, Kathrin

I'm seriously thinking about letting anna play with my blog, she did the most amazing job on yours!! I am in love with the new header...such perfection!!

and what an amazing giveaway, her jewelry is 100% me :)

I would either wish for the turquoise raindrops on silver necklace or the lock and key one in gold since I have been wanting a tiffanys key necklace FOREVER!!
