Celebrating 5 Years of Blogging with My Fashion Faves GIVEAWAY!

It’s hard to believe it, but this fall GracieCarroll.com celebrated its 5th anniversary! 2016 was my first official year of working full-time as a blogger (I’ve technically worked on it full-time for 5 years, but this year I didn’t have 9-5 on top of it all), and I’m so thrilled to have experienced such an exciting and successful year.

Since my blog has been around for half a decade now, I decided it was time to give it a face lift, and this fall I gave GracieCarroll.com the gift of whole new makeover with help from my talented friend Rasin, whom I met at our shared work space, the East Room.

Each year, I like to host a big giveaway to celebrate my blog’s bday (in October) along with my actual birthday (in November), and this year I wanted to do something bigger and BETTER than ever before.

So, to celebrate my blog’s 5 year anniversary, today kicks off the first of 5 giveaways that will be launching over the next couple of weeks, that give you the chance to WIN 5 of my favourite things that tie in to 5 different categories I blog abut: Fashion, Beauty, Food, Fitness and Lifestyle!

Since my blogging career started with FASHION, the first giveaway is my Fashion Faves giveaway that’s valued at over $600 CAD! Entering this giveaway means you have the chance to win ALL 5 of my fashion faves to enjoy for yourself!

See below for what’s up for grabs and how to enter to WIN:

1. Conair Extreme Steam Steamer, $89.99

Gracie Carroll - Conair Extreme Steam Steamer

As a fashion lover with A LOT of clothing, a steamer is one of my favourite things to have at home. However, anyone who has ever spent any significant amount of time in a fashion internship, or, perhaps, already has a steamer, will know that it is not easy to find a good one, especially a smaller and hand held version. I’ve been SO impressed with how amazing the Conair Extreme Steam (retail value $89.99) steamer is that I had to include here! It’s AMAZING.

2. Mendocino Gift Card, $150


As a #MendoMuse, how could I not include my Mendocino family in my Fashion Faves giveaway? They have generously provided a $150 gift card for the lucky winner to enjoy and use at any of their retail locations to shop in person! If we were to meet up and shop together I would not be opposed to it. I always find the best things at Mendo!

3. Raptors Tee by Leeloodles, $45

It’s been such an amazing year for my talented little Leeloo – the 8 year old artist and mini #GirlBoss behind Leeloodles – and I’m so proud of her! As a huge fan of her work and her brand, as well as the Toronto Raptors, I’m so excited to include one of my favourite’s tees (retail value $35 USD) from her collection in my Gracie Faves giveaway.

4. Luisa Mojito Sunglasses by Toms, $159


Sunglasses are most definitely an integral part of my style, and it would be rare to find me outdoors without a great pair on. I’m a huge fan of the quality and styles made by Toms glasses and I’m totally obsessed with this stunning pair called the Luisa Mojito.  Worth $159, this brand new pair will be yours to rock! How great would they look with a strong red lippy?

5. Touchscreen Joliet Gloves by Quill & Tine, $175

No surprise here, I’m on my phone A LOT and that doesn’t stop in the winter. I’m a huge fan of the beautiful leather touchscreen gloves by my friends Quill & Tine who are generously providing my favourite style – the suede fringe Joliet glove (retail value $175) – to include in the Fashion Faves giveaway! These are the types of pieces that make winter better.

So how do you enter to WIN all FIVE items listed above, valued at over $600?
