Get Your Christmas Lists Ready (+ a Giveaway!)

Y'all...Christmas is like 80-something days away. Holy hay??!! Where did 2012 GO??!! Ya...Iono that answer either but now that I've stressed us all out and your blood pressure is through the roof, why don't you go ahead and start your Christmas list today. Yes? I mean, I know it's not even Halloween yet but you can never be too prepared. Or you could go ahead and start shopping for your family and friends (& me) too. Either way-go ahead and get your credit card out...
 
You can think me later.

(PS: thanks to Pinterest, I have a year round Christmas/Birthday board where I pin any/everything I'm lusting over and send the link to the board to all of my family for easy shopping. You're welcome for the idea. Read more here.)

So y'all know I love me anything personalized. (Who doesn't?) I mean, you could personalize a dirty diaper with my initials and I would be happier than a kid in a candy store. Or a stripper in Vegas. Or a bride on her wedding day.

Ok. Maybe that got a little out of hand. Where was I?

Oh-or you could just personalize a piece of metal, hang it on a fancy chain and send it my way and I would be equally as thrilled. You know...as the stripper in Vegas.

We've all seen these filigree monogram necklaces but if you're anything like me, you're not willing to pay an arm and leg for one. $200+?...NO THANKS.

 Oh hey...I have your solution...find it at Personalized from Me to You for $84.

Aaaand you're welcome.

I'm sporting the 18" gold-dipped necklace and y'all, I could sleep in this I love it so much. Talk about a fan-freaking-tastic wedding or Christmas gift. (Sidenote: I could really use this in silver, too) Really...you can never go wrong with a personalized necklace.

Also-if any of you are shopping for me this holiday season (which, you BETTER be!), I wouldn't be opposed to any of the following also showing up in my mail box. Please take note of my initials... sHn
Precious, right?!

Moving right along...
 
Now meet Meesh & Mia (aka THE most adorable college shop EVER). From ruffles and bows to sequins and bling, they have a gazillion different teams so there's a pretty good chance they carry yours! Trust me...no one EVER has cute UH stuff so anyone who carries my college gear is a winner in my book! 

The second I went to their site, I fell IN. LOVE. with their adorable scarves 
(& just about everything else, too!)

Ruffles. Sparkles. Bling. Yes, yes & yes!

 Seriously though...you can't find this stuff at Academy or Sports Authority and the fact that their items are SO reasonable and so is shipping, I foresee a LOT of Christmas shopping being done on Meesh & Mia this holiday season. Better yet, if you want to treat yourself to something this football season, get your shop on now and have it time to wear to the next game! DUH!

BUT WAIT...
THERE'S MORE!

Yes-I feel like an infomercial at this point but really...there's more!!

Meesh & Mia are giving TWO of my lucky readers a $25 gift certificate to use at their store

Let's make this easy...

1. Follow Beautiful Mess via Google Friend Connect & let me know you do so by leaving a comment
2. Visit their site and in your same comment, I wanna know what ONE item you'd LOVE to wear to your next college football game! Thaz all!

The giveaway will end Friday night at midnight and the winner will be announced Saturday morning.


Aaaaand GO!
