1 year blog-versary & giveaway!

**Please note that this giveaway is now closed- thanks for entering!**

Today is Tinfoil Tiaras’ one year anniversary and she wants to celebrate it in style! My first blog post was wordy and talked about my career goals and now a days I like to keep it short and sweet (except for those days I feel like rambling!) and focus on the outfits.  I started this blog as a creative outlet- to give myself something to do in my spare time.  A year later, I barely have any free time but I make sure that blogging is a priority because it’s not only my way of documenting my fashion hits and misses; it’s also my self-care for when life gets stressful!

I thought it would be fun to showcase some of my favourite looks from the past 12 months- personal style truly ebbs and flows with time! {Click on the blue title to be re-directed to the original post and to see all my outfit photos click here}

To all my readers-thank you for supporting, commenting, and putting up with my eccentricities and sometimes questionable style!  As my way of giving thanks I am having a one-year anniversary giveaway for a $50 online gift card from anywhere you want (retailer, restaurant, book store- you name it!)

To enter you must simply be a follower of Tinfoil Tiaras through google friend connect or blog lovin’ and leave a comment below indicating which one you use.  I will contact the winner via e-mail (please leave your e-mail address) and then you can tell me where you would like your online gift card from!  Because some people don’t use twitter or have their own blogs, no extra entries and this way we’ll keep level the playing field!

The contest is open to local and international readers and the deadline to enter is Sunday September 11th at midnight EST.   
Good luck!


  1. Wow, you've had quite a year! And I am totally down for a giveaway...I think I could get a lot of bang for my buck with a $50 F21 card. And I'm a GFC follower.

    I am following via bloglovin, ma belle.

  3. I love all the outfits you chose to highlight your blogversary, but that green poncho? Amazing. You should wear more of that color. It's really fantastic on you. Also, I almost forgot what you looked like as a blond. Yowza! It's amazing how you look great in any hair color. Not fair!

And I'm definitely planning to steal the idea for your striped top outfit. Also your fuzzy coat is over-the-top and absolutely amazing.
