essential swimwear give-away

A very kind reader named Brittney sent us some swimsuits from her company called “Essential Swimwear” which we thought was very nice of her.

Especially since they are really cute suits.

Sometimes I have a hard time finding suits for my girls.  I love the ease of tankinis but man alive it’s hard to find ones that fit right.  So I’m extra grateful for such a kind gift. 

She sent one for me and one for Claire.

And I’ll let the pictures tell how excited that girl was about her cute new chevron suit:2013-06-19 summer 792902013-06-19 summer 792962013-06-19 summer 79299

Yeah, she likes it.2013-06-19 summer 79300I think she also likes the fact that I have only made her do her hair like two times this summer. 

Not really but kind of a true fact.

But once again, I digress.

Back to that cute suit.

And the give-away I get to do so readers can have the chance for their own cute suits like this one (they have great ones for adults and kids).

I get to give away a $100 shopping spree for the winner to shop to their little hearts’ content over on the Essential Swimwear site.

Once again, there are three ways to enter to win.  One is just to leave a comment.  The second option is to go to their web site and come back here to leave your favorite suit selection in the comments.  And the third is to go “like” Essential Swimwear on Facebook (here) and come back here to let us know.

So go check out all the cute stuff they have over here at Essential Swimwear and I’ll announce the lucky winner on Friday.

Love, Shawni
