Yesterday, I was lucky enough to attend the H&M Grand Opening here in Raleigh, NC. I was contacted prior to the opening to host a Giveaway on my blog. 4 of my lucky readers won gift cards to spend in the store. The Grand Prize winner (Maria) was able to shop with me before the doors opened to the public. (Thank goodness, as there were hundreds of shoppers all lined up, ready to enter at Noon, when the official red ribbon would be cut!) We had a fabulous time gabbing during our spree. I helped her put together a few looks for her new job. We scoured the racks for office ready jackets, pretty dresses, trusty slacks and dainty heels.

We were both so excited and delighted to be a part of this insanely fun project. The best part? Along with a new wardrobe (courtesy of H&M) I have now found a new friend here in Raleigh! Which is always a fun bonus! 🙂

P.S. Stay Tuned …soon… for some of the looks and pieces I tried on and purchased! 😉
