A day in Columbus & a giveaway

Happy Friday, kiddos! How has your week been? I don't know about you, but I'm super excited it's Friday. It's date night around here, and I took a vacation day. I don't think I could be more excited - unless, of course, Kate Spade knocks on my door and hand-delivers a bowl full of sequins. THEN I would be even more excited!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the grand re-opening of The Limited at Easton Town Center in Columbus. *Yes, I now live three hours away from Columbus, but I just had to go back for the day - for several reasons.

Reason #1: There were appetizers. 
 snacks + shopping = very happy kelly 

Reason #2: The store is pretty chic. I LOVE the floor and red ceiling. 

*Sorry for the blurry photos. I was walking and hoping my i-phone was snazzy enough to keep up with my jerky movements. 

We had a guided tour from Limited's CEO, Linda Heasley, where she explained the vision for the new store. It has a boutique-vibe with lots of technological features. The mirrors in the dressing rooms have three different types of lighting so that you know EXACTLY how you'll look throughout the day and into the evening. Genius. 
My favorite part of the tour was her explanation of the decisions they made throughout the store- most of which were based on market research.... because, you know, it's what I do everyday. 

Reason # 3: I got to meet some lovely Columbus bloggers- just a few months after I leave the city. Go figure! 

Reason #5: The Limited was kind enough to give me a $50 gift card (I'll show you my purchases later)!
Reason #6: Everything is 40% off this weekend!!!
Reason #7: The Limited also gave me a $50 gift card to give to one of my readers!! Yay for you guys!**More on this in a minute!

Reason #8: I got to see this little girl: 
I tried to tell her that wasn't a comfortable position to sleep in. She didn't care. 

She hates to be burped. Fights like a wild animal to avoid it. It's hysterical- and a little frightening. 

So about this whole giveaway thing...let's do it like this: 
If you'd like a chance to win, simply become a follower of my blog (if you aren't already) and leave a comment about what you'd like to buy with your $50 gift card!

I'll pick a winner on Sunday morning- and mail your card out on Monday!
