Pretty Mommy Turns Two! (+ a giveaway)

It seems as though everything in my life right now revolves around two...so it's only fitting that my little blog has it's second anniversary today...amazing to think when I sat down at my computer in a funky pair of cutoffs and decided to write myself out of a sartorial slump that I would end up here, just a couple of years later with so many cherished friendships, a thriving boutique, and a little space of my own on this crazy interweb...so THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to anyone who has read my goofy ramblings, has inspired me with their beautiful blogs, and who has supported my little shop...I have discovered so many amazing, creative, kind, and wise women through blogging....


I would love to reach through my screen and give all of you a great big virtual hug or a piece of cake but I thought a giveaway might be a better alternative so here goes:

want extra chances to win?

  7. Oh boy... LOVE the Clare Vivier La Tropezienne Tote in Canvas or Leather! My foldover clutch would fit perfectly inside.

  9. What an amazing give away! I'm always drooling over stuff in your shop. And actually, it's interesting for me to hear you talk about the beginnings of this, I am actually so curious to know how it all developed. You have amazing taste and your content is always interesting and satisfying and your boutique is beautifully curated. Honestly, sometimes I think that you have what I would eventually want some day. I'd love to know how you got there. And no, I'm not just gushing cause you asked us to, I read your blog every day and absolutely love it. Just seems appropriate to gush a bit on your birthday!

  20. Woah! This is a great giveaway! And happy blog birthday. I have always loved your blog and I remember the first time you commented on my blog (that I never update...) I was "blog star struck," no joke. Seriously, you are one of my faves for being so laid back.

    If I will this I fully intend on snatching up one of those beautiful Scout & Catalogue Lasso Scarves. I've wanted one since last summer!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love that Clare Vivier Canvas Tropezienne Tote! And happy blogiversary!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi Michelle! I have been reading your blog for a long time, and am always so inspired by how you effortlessly blend more serious posts about motherhood and breastfeeding with fun posts about style and fashion for moms. We should do Wednesday Outfits! I loved seeing what everyone else was wearing.

    And your shop is fantastic. I am loving my Clare Vivier clutch, it makes every outfit perfect! I have been eyeing those Two New York Caftans though....

    Congrats on 2, in so many ways!

  23. Seriously? What an amazingly generous and lust-worthy giveaway. My favorite thing? Your perfect eye for casual laid-back california-hippie gorgeousness. Your shop is one of the few shops where I want everything. Seriously. Also, I love that your "blog voice" is simple, unpretentious and feels comfortable and genuine. Happy 2 year ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh, happy blog anniversary to you dearest! Since I found you almost 2 years ago, you have inspired me with your style and mama grace. You have such amazing style. Truly. It has been lovely to watch you grow. And I have been coveting a bag in that shop of yours....oh, so DIVINE.
    I think the world is giving you a sign about the number 2. I tend not to ignore things like that. (It's the gemini in me, you know).
    All the best for your heart. Send you a virtual watermelon/cucumber martini.
    Best,
    TIna

  35. Happy 2 year blogiversary! What i love most, is that I always know where to turn when I need new outfit inspiration, I just head over to Pretty Mommy shop and scroll through to find the latest looks. Either I buy or emulate if my budget doesn't allow. Thanks for that!

    ReplyDelete
  36. My favorite thing in the shop - a CV clutch. I just can't decide on my favorite color.

    My favorite thing about the blog - seeing a mom who is still stylist and has her own thing but loves her kids too.

    I follow you on facebook & retweeted, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love everything in your shop, but I think I NEED a Clare clutch. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Aww! Happy Birthday, Pretty Mommy! I love your blog, your style, and voice. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Happy 2 year! I find your shop and blog an inspiration and would love to be able to do something similar when I have little ones. I'd of course use the gift certificate for a Clare clutch. It's been on my wish list for far too long! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. It is so hard to pick, but I think my current love is the Ace & Jig Caftan.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Congratulations! I love your blog because it inspires me...I'm not a mommy yet, but I am hell bent on being a pretty, stylish one like you, hopefully someday soon.

    Also, I am DYING for a Clare Vivier clutch. Such a gorgeous piece.

    Finally, I will retweet and like you on FB...sound good? Pick me, please!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I already like you on FB - and absolutely love your shop and blog - so much loveliness! Now is it possible to like you google+?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Happy anniversary Michelle! I've continued to love exploring (and spending $$$) at your shop -- where the unique and gorgeous items make such beautiful gifts for dear ones (and myself!)...Your blog always inspires me... particularly when you bring in other women from the web to chat about their style wants/needs and desires. Mostly, though, I've loved seeing a fellow petite woman embrace maxi skirts and all of the other comfort-chic clothing items that I never thought I could pull off before coming upon this site.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I want a Matta scarf so badly, I could cry. Truly.

    Happy 2nd anniversary! Here's to many more years of inspiration to come!

    ReplyDelete

  52. what a generous way to celebrate two! i've always got my eyes peeled for what's new around here, hoping some of your good taste is rubbing off on me. i have my heart set on something cozy like that ace & jig drawstring baja.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love your blog! Although I am a bit further along in the mothering stage(I have a middle schooler and high schooler), I love to hear snippets of your life and recall those fleeting days. Trust, they are truly fleeting. I can not believe I have a teenager! Your style is inspirational too!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Even though I only found your blog and shop a little while ago, I feel like I've known you for a long time. Your blog is wonderfully personal and inspiring. My favorite thing from the shop? Impossible to choose! But if I absolutely HAD to, I would say that I've been obsessing over the Vivier Foldover Clutch for too long!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Happy Birthday! I've been a fan for over a year now. You have helped me through a rough year of parenting by reminding me to savor every little moment with my son, while still being a pretty mommy. Love your blog and everything in the shop!

    ReplyDelete
  56. happy anniversary and congratulations! i adore pretty much all of your items/products and would gladly wear/carry any of them. i love my grey CV bag that my sweet and thoughtful husband purchased from you for my last birthday and hope to add to my CV collection with a foldover clutch sometime in the near future. i have back-burned my lovely bag for now in lieu of a diaper bag to carry all of my newborn son's things.

    ReplyDelete
  57. new follower & new momma.. love the advice & ideas.. love seeing a beautiful, fun & stylish mom!

  64. Now following ur blog and twitter!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wow, you seem to intuit just what I want. Thanks to you, I'm pretty well equipped with CV (for now), but I'd love a nice Matta scarf when fall rolls around -- that, and perhaps some of those enameled Dream Collective earrings... or some Lizzie Fortunato. Any chance you'll be carrying CHANCE in the future? Happy Birthday!! Your blog is wonderful. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. Besides being obsessed with my Clare Vivier foldover orange clutch from your shop, I love all the matta scarves and laura lombardi jewelry! I also LOVE your style, and how you make being a mama look chic! Happy anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I 'like' you on Facebook, but I love your blog in real life. As a mom with two young youngins of my own, I like to hear your take on the travails & joys of balancing kids, work, & life all while trying to maintain some sense of self. The clothes are nice too ;) I'm beginning to rethink the caftan idea myself, as it was 109 here in Austin today. Um. That's hot.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I came to know your amazing site on Sacramento Street. Your talent of choosing amazing items is incredible. I adore the clutch purses!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh, la, la, lady! This is a very generous birthday giveaway! How can I resist the fun? I'll be tweeting away shortly and let me just say I'm so happy you are a part of this blogworld. It's so much brighter with you in it.

    ReplyDelete
  72. My favorite thing about your blog is your calming and inviting sense of style and writing voice. I always feel at ease after reading one of your posts!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Well, happy 2nd Anniversary!

    I love so much in your shop, I can't even tell you! But, I've had my eye on that John Robshaw two elephants pillow. It would match my living room and I loooove it.

    But I also want the Clare Vivier clutch and the Laura Lombardi necklaces. So, I probably shouldn't win as I won't be able to decide. :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Happy #2! Beautiful blog, fun tweets, and incredible shop ~ you are a fabulous force of greatness in this world!

    Love, love, love the Lizzie Fortunato dream bracelet {of course I would, right?}, but I also need a CV messenger bag!

    ReplyDelete
  113. Happy Blogiversary! I love love love the Bosquez Jewelry Petite Cosmos Necklace. I'd get 2 - one for myself and one for my mom!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I'm fairly new to your site and blog, but I'd like to send you a congratulations on your 2 year anniversary! I have been looking for simple leather handbags for so long, I think the Clare Vivier handbags are it! From what I've seen on style blogs online, the best part of Clare Vivier handbags are that they age so beautifully.

    ReplyDelete
  115. I "met" your blog a couple of weeks ago and already its become one of my go to favorites because of the way it so perfectly captures the beautiful life I live and aspire to live, especially as I embark upon what I hope will be the journey of motherhood with my yummy new husband. You've shown me so many beautiful things that fit my life now and will fit my life then. (Oh my, the Scout and Catalogue scarves? Perfect to wear now and perfect to wear then when it can double as a nursing cover-up, a baby wrap, who knows? And I can put all my mommy stuff in the Claire Vivier tote you've turned me on to. The Two Caftans? Goddess dressing for now, when I'm pregnant and after).

    Thank you for being such a resource and such an inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  116. Ooh, definitely the one of the clutches!! Happy anniversary!

    ReplyDelete
  117. I adore and admire (and, let's face it, kind of envy) your incredible taste. You're a style-maker who provides so much lovely inspiration! Congratulations on all your hard work! And thank you for spreading the love with this generous giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I follow you on Twitter and tweeted this giveaway (@Grimlock710)!

    ReplyDelete
  119. OOH what a generous giveaway! My favorite item in the shop is the CV LaTrop! You have been very inspirational and supportive of my blog, it's meant a lot coming from you! Happy Birthday Pretty Mommy!

    ReplyDelete
  120. Oooohhh! Fun giveaway! why I love the blog - not only are you constantly introducing me to gorgeous things from deesigners I was not familiar with, but I also love how the blog is so sweetly honest. You manage to be very real, you are honest ithout being negative, and you seem optomisitc without pooping rainbows. I love that. I've been eyeing a claire viver clutch and pretty much everything caftan or tunic from Two, so I hope you pull my name :)

    I don't know why I can't get my account to work, but my email is marissafairweather@hotmail.com and I'm also following you on fb!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Happy Anniversary! As another creative mom with two little ones, I love watching how you balance it all. Striking a balance, at least for me, is an ongoing process. I've always had this vision of pretty much only wearing caftans, at least at home and when weather permits outside of the house. Wouldn't it be so fun to have a uniform that was just effortless and lovely? I've been eying the Two Aqua Naija Tunic. If only it didn't seem like such a splurge for something impractical while breastfeeding, i would have snapped it up already.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I love that you have such a down to earth approach to fashion. I feel that your picks are perfectly curated, just the things I would hunt for if I had the time. You have turned me on to some great finds and I wear my Laura Lombardi earring all of the time. I get so many compliments and I always mention Pretty Mommy as my source.
    I also love your very honest tales of motherhood, the good and the bad.

  124. Happy "birthday" to your blog! What a wonderful milestone. I am a fairly recent reader of Pretty Mommy (a few months now), but I went back and read through many of the archives because I love it that much. I think my favorite part about your blog is your authenticity... talking about some of the joys and challenges of mothering such little ones and finding balance in that, and combining those topics with a really keen point of view on fashion, travel, and the finer things. I would absolutely love a spree of your wonderfully curated shop. Thank you so much for your generosity! Warmly, Katie
