Last Day of the 12 Days of Bijou Giveaways – Design Your New Year

Its been a wonderful 12 Days of nonstop giveaways!

But the fun isn’t over at all – in fact, it’s only just begun!

This December I challenged myself to keep writing, keep interacting – no matter how I feel. Over the past 2 years this blog has been my creative outlet, but I want it to be so much more than that. I want it to be a resource for women just like me! The Petite Bijou is a place to talk style, wellness, beauty, personal development and so much more.

I like to think of it as the spot to go when you don’t have a girlfriend to chat with about life. I’m all ears – and so are the amazing women in this community.

Since it’s the last day of the 12 Days of Bijou Giveaway series, I wanted to make this prize especially memorable and helpful for you.




One lucky reader and follower will win 2 Day Designer Planners – one to keep and one to gift!

You’ve heard me mention these beautiful planners before – over and over again. Why? Because they work. Ever since I started using Day Designer a year ago, I have become more productive. tackled assignments more easily, and jump-started my consulting business.

Day Designer is really committed to getting every part of your life organized. From what you do first thing in the morning, bed time, and everything in between. With their organizational system, you can feel like you’ve gotten all your to-do’s done without it being overwhelming.

What I especially like, which I mentioned here, is how you focus on just 3 main goals for the day. This is really important because shifting your attention to too many “to-do.s” at once can cause you to procrastinate. This is what Day Designer is here to help with. And they have so many cute designs, it’s hard to forget its there – something I know is way too common with planners.

I voted it best planner for the New Year for a reason – it helped me in 2017, and now I want it to help you in 2018!

    My #1 goal is to be more intentional with my days. Just think how much could be accomplished if I identified 3 main goals each day.

    My #1 goal for 2018 is to be more ‘present’ in my time with family. My dad passed away unexpectedly this past summer and now I want to spend as much quality time with my mom as possible…

  • Are you into straw purses? At first, I was not into the straw circle purse trend, but now this has become my signature accessory. I get so many question & compliments on this purse so here are my answers:
▪️You have to travel light because this does open on its own if you carry too much
▪️Withstands the rain pretty well - so I will be taking this into fall
▪️To add a french touch, tie a silk scarf around the handle 💕
You can find this purse (plus similar ones) under $100 in the link in my bio or via by following me on the app #LTKunder50 #LTKunder100  #LTKstyletip  #LTKsalealert #liketkit
  • Where can I get one of those jobs where they pay you to stay at different resorts every week and take pretty pictures? Asking for a friend 😂

  • QUESTION: Is Fashion Week relevant anymore? 👗🤔 Do you like seeing Fashion Week posts from bloggers?
The other day @jaceyduprie asked her followers a really thought provoking question about whether or not she should attend Fashion Week this year. This amazing post made me ponder my own decision on whether to go or not. A lot of bloggers are asking this question to themselves and to their readers. I'm not alone in thinking: is it even relevant anymore?
I went back to my journalism days to explore this topic in great detail and present arguments for all sides of the FW dilemma.

  • Now I turned this @galmeetsglam dress Victorian 😂 Jk, the house is Victorian. Me? I’m just here to show off all the pretty patterns 🌺🌸
Speaking of patterns, I’d love to know: is there ever such a thing as too much floral? I don’t see many people wearing floral patterns anymore. Thoughts?
This dress is still available and linked here or in the link in my bio ❤️ #liketkit #LTKstyletip #LTKsalealert #thepetitebijou
