Happy August! It's hard to believe we're halfway into summer and in some parts of the country, it's almost back-to-school time. When I was younger, I used to get excited when August rolled around because it meant my birthday was coming up; but I also got a bit sad because it meant summer would soon be ending. But no need to be sad today, I've got a fun little giveaway for you in celebration of summer and my upcoming birthday!

It's no secret that I love all things handmade and am a big fan of independent designers. In fact, many of the products I've featured in the past through my Lil' Sweet Bites series are from handmade businesses. I'm always on the lookout for unique gifts for family and friends. So when 9th & Elm reached out and introduced themselves, I eagerly explored their site featuring fabulous gifts curated from handmade and independent designers. They have something for everyone - from jewelry, clothing, and accessories to personalized items perfect for wedding and bridal shower gifts!

9th & Elm provided me with a generous $70 credit to shop their site and after searching for a while, I decided on this whimsical hand-stamped initial leaf necklace by designer, Bella Joo. Hand-stamped jewelry seem to be quite trendy these days and I've been eyeing initial necklaces for a while. The pretty mint-colored drop also caught my eye along with the gold leaf - the three elements just complement each other so well. I love the delicately stamped "L" - it's subtle, just the way I like my jewelry. Simple, elegant, yet so gorgeous! I've been wearing it with a simple t-shirt and jeans, as well with a summer dress and cardigan.

I am no fashionista - not in the least, but 9th & Elm makes it easy by hand-picking the best of handmade fashion so you really can't go wrong! [Don't forget to check out the giveaway below]

I decided to share the wealth and gift this fabulous necklace ($34 value, details here) to one lucky reader - to enter, please follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget below (US residents only, please): a Rafflecopter giveaway
