Holiday Giveaway from Manic Trout!

It’s official, the holiday season is upon us!  I usually leave the tree trimming to my mom and head to her house for the festivities, I therefore have never been bitten by the decorating bug in December. Well all that has changed this year! I am hosting Christmas at my house and my mom and three sisters will be flying in to Austin from Boston, New York City and San Francisco on Christmas Eve.  It started innocently enough…a little tree, a few poinsettias, some lights on the mantle and then BAM! We went to Target last night. Yadda, Yadda, Yadda…we’re going to need a bigger tree.  Anyway, now that I’m into the holiday spirit I wanted to do a themed giveaway, however I really don’t have anything that screamed “holiday!”. So I decided to go with a classic.  Because really when you get down to it, the holidays are all about the classics.

You don’t get more classic Manic Trout than with the Kanya Hot Stuff Necklace.  Featuring a bold 2.75″ wide Elephant and bright red cherry quartz, the Hot Stuff Necklace is one of the most famous of the Manic Trout designs, having been worn by Jessica Szohr as Vanessa on Gossip Girl, so fancy! Want to win your very own Hot Stuff Necklace?  Its super simple…

September Giveaway from Manic Trout!

We are gearing up for Fall in the US and many of you are hauling out boots and coats and sweaters from storage. Sadly however, those of us in Texas are not even close yet, boo.  Which means that some of us have to rely on “fall-like” accessories to celebrate the new season.  I have been loving the Welcome To The Jungle Necklace from the new collection with its amber and tortoise color blocked, double stranded awesomeness and it’s fierce Leopard.  If there is a Leopard involved, it should be fierce…and this one takes the cake, just look at those teeth!

Welcome to The Jungle Necklace $115
