Belated Birthday Giveaway {$100!!} and Flash Sale!

I am SO, so excited to pop in today with a little belated birthday treat... for you!  Yes, I'm a week late to my own party, but trust me, it's worth the wait!


As teachers, we are on our feet all day long.  Sit down?  What does that even mean??  Who has the time?!  For us, the right shoe can mean the difference between sore tootsies and happy feet.

I am always on the hunt for the perfect work shoe.  I found THE shoe once, six years ago.  I bought two pairs for a pretty penny, and I tell you it was well worth the money!  I pretty much alternated them every day for six years, and wore them 'til they couldn't be worn anymore.  I recently started a new shoe search, and that's how I stumbled upon Tieks


Have you heard of Tieks?  I've been told they are the most versatile designer flats in the world.  They are made out of fine Italian leather.  They're every day ballet flats that you can fold up and pop in your purse, if you so desire!


And, Oprah likes them!

Tieks come in prints, patents, classics, and even a vegan line.  There are 48 different colors to choose from {if I counted correctly}.



The starting price is a little hefty at $175, but...


...or the classroom :)

I was lucky enough to receive a $100 gift card towards the purchase of my first pair of Tieks, and I cannot wait to place my order!  Even better news?  I get to go shopping with a friend-- one of my Cupcake followers-- because I am also giving away a $100 gift card!!!

Yes, the gift card comes in an *adorable* mini Tieks box!

WOOHOO!!!!

To enter for your chance to win, just use the Rafflecopter below!!  I offered eight different options so you can have eight chances to win this AMAZING prize!


This feet-tastic giveaway {haha} will end on Wednesday, October 16th.
Good luck!!!! xoxo!


Before you go, I'm throwing a little celebration sale in my shop in honor of TpT's Facebook milestone!  My store is 20% off today only, and you'll receive an extra 10% if you use the code FB100K!!!  Happy Shopping! :)
