Bling Up Your Outfits for Less with an Everyday Icing Giveaway

 I’m headed to Utah this week to attend the SNAP conference. Preparing for blog conferences usually means it’s time for me to put away my paint spattered holey jeans and find some cute clothes to wear. It’s not easy for me to get dressy, but I’ve finally learned the value of “dressing up” some basics with cute accessories.

You might remember from this post that I’m not a big jewelry girl. I usually ask for power tools for my birthday. But, for blog conferences, there’s nothing better for an outfit than a “little icing on the cake”! Everyday Icing is a new shopping destination site for all things jewelry and accessories. Started by Kimba (the fabulous blogger behind A Soft Place to Land), this is definitely a unique way for me to shop for jewelry, gifts, and more! Plus, the items really appeal to my frugal nature. There wasn’t a single item over $25 (of all the products I scoped out!) Yeah for beautiful jewelry for a gal on a budget!


Here’s Kimba to tell you more about Everyday Icing. And stick around because she’s offering a wonderful giveaway prize to one of my readers!


Hi, Pretty Handy Girl readers, this is Kimba to tell you a little bit more about my latest endeavor. Everyday Icing was born out of a love for designer accessories, but not designer prices. We’re busy moms with a budget to watch and we love how the right piece of jewelry can take an outfit from plain to fabulous! And because we care about giving back, 10% of our profits go directly to Compassion International.

Everyday Icing combines social media and shopping, so first you need to “like” our Facebook page. Our sales are every Monday at 9pm (eastern) directly on our facebook page. And some weeks we have special themed sales on Thursday…You won’t want to miss Scarf-A-Palooza and Nautical Night!

Each week we offer 20-30 different items for a fixed price (usually between $12-$25) and shipping is usually FREE! We post pictures of the items for sale along with a description, price and the quantity that we have. There are limited quantities of each item and when they’re gone, they’re gone. So be quick!

Shopping with us is EASY! To make a purchase:

That’s it! We’ll ship your cute loot directly to your door! If you have more questions, we have a “How to Bid” tab on our page that explains more.

Every Monday at 9pm they open the doors (so to speak) and allow “fans” to bid on that week’s accessories offering. Unlike auction style sites, the prices are firm, but it’s more of a first come first serve type sale.

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post and giveaway. I was compensated for my time by Everyday Icing. However, I wasn’t told what to say and really like the concept and figured you would too.


  1. I really wanted to enter this great giveaway but I do not have a Facebook page because of the type of job I have. Good luck to everyone who is able to enter this giveaway.

    • Renea, I’m sorry about that. Because their business is solely on Facebook I didn’t think it was worth giving other options. My sincere apologies. I’ll have some more giveaways coming up that you’ll be eligible to enter. I promise ;-).

  2. This jewelry post has nothing to do with a DIY blog. If I wanted to buy jewelry I would visit a shopping site. ‘I was compensated for my time” says it all, but please stick to your original mission.

    • Diane, I’m sorry if this giveaway rubbed you the wrong way. Occasionally I deviate from my normal content if I think my readers would enjoy the products or giveaway. I appreciate your opinion and thank you for taking the time to comment. There will be plenty more DIY coming up.

  3. Love the jewelry…
