Melissa’s Birthday Giveaway!

It’s my birthday, blogilians! Golden Birthday, at that. That means I’m going to give you stuff! I would let you give me stuff, but I’m really out of room in the dress department, and that’s all I ever ask for.

On the heels of Brianna’s birthday giveaway, I’m gonna giveaway something that I recently discover and love: Loreal Gel-Lacquer 1-2-3 Nail Color.


I am never one to do my nails because I’m not much of a lady when it comes to keeping them nice, and they always seem to chip immedieatly. The invention of gel nail polish saves people like me who dig in the dirt far too often….but unfortunately I rarely invest in getting it done. WHO HAS THAT KIND OF TIME WHEN YOU COULD BE NAPPING?

I recently came across this nail polish in Target. As I blank-stared at it awhile, a lady who worked there started raving about it. The great part is you don’t need a gel lamp for it to cure…and it doesn’t take long to dry! The whole 3 different coats thing can slow a girl down, but it’s worth it!

I have this in a bunch of colors but the lavender is my favorite! I’ll be giving a bottle away along with the bottom and top coat bottles to one lucky winner!


Here are the rules:

  • Follow us on Instagram @jackieandmarilynblog
  • Submit your email address on Rafflecopter (so we can contact you afterward)
  • That’s it!

Gimme dat nail polish!

The window closes at 9:00 pm CST on June 1. We will pick one lucky Instagrammer randomly and contact them to send out their loot!

Happy Birthday. one and all!

Brianna’s Birthday Giveaway!

It is a happy day indeed, because it is MY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

No big deal, I don’t even care that much…

Just kidding, it’s super awesome.

The day has been so wonderful. I took Luna for two walks, had tea with my best friend, went on a sushi date with my husband, and ate a cupcake. Is there anything better than a birthday? Nope.

My husband was super sweet and gave me a ModCloth dress for my birthday (which sadly fits weird and has to go back), as well as this gorgeous leaf belt! I anticipate utilizing this baby often. I paired the outfit with some fun tights, floral oxfords, and a new pair of button earrings from a Brickyard Buffalo sale.


I don’t want to be too selfish on my birthday, so I got you guys a little something too…a birthday giveaway! I am giving a set of button earrings by Freckles & Company to one lucky blog follower. The earrings I wore today originally came from this company. Button earrings are my jam, and I truly love these – I am sure you will love them too!

The Rules:

  • You must be an email or WordPress follower of Jackie and Marilyn to win
  • You must provide your email address upon entry

Aaaaaand…that’s it! The giveaway will run until May 21 at 9:00 pm CST. I will contact you via email to ship your prize if you win, and you will receive a shout-out in one of our posts!


I like earrings and winning things!


And now, I will finish this birthday with pajamas and puppy snuggles. Goodnight, all 🙂

What I Wore:
Dress: ModCloth
Cardigan: ModCloth
Belt: ModCloth
Earrings: Brickyard Buffalo (via Freckles & Company)
Tights: Target (also seen here)
