4th Blogiversary and Minnetonka Giveaway

Blogiversary

Photo credit: Best Part Photography

Lovelies, we are so excited to announce our 4th blogiversary!  It may be a couple months late, but we wanted to celebrate it nonetheless! We can’t believe we’ve been blogging away for four years and we’re still here all thanks to you guys, our amazing bloggy buds and readers. We especially want to thank you for sticking with us for the last year and a half. We’ve brought two BonBon babies into the world and that took up a lot of our time, but now that our fourth year is underway and our kiddos are past the newborn stage, we have a lot of plans in the works, including a few you might notice soon including:

A shortened Feed – We have a whole new look in development that we’ll be debuting later this year, but in the meantime we will be moving to a shortened feed and we hope you will love it as much as we do, but if you don’t, we welcome your feedback!
An end to the Rosebud Network – We love our Rosebuds, we really do, but when we took a thorough look at things, we realized that it was taking up valuable time that we wanted to redirect into making the blog a better place for all our readers.  At this time, we’ve decided to end the Rosebud Network as it is and thank you all so much for your participation! We will be taking down the page at the end of this week. We would love to interact with you all here and on our social media outlets like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Google+!
Weekly newsletter – Very soon we will be sending out a weekly newsletter complete with a round-up of posts as well as exclusive content for subscribers.  Stay tuned for more details…
Some new faces: Our friend Annelis will continue to treat us with her beauty posts. Kristin’s sister, Jessica, will be sharing her DIY skills and probably some wedding know-how from time to time. And Megan from TF Diaries will be dropping by once a month with her style column The Fashion Chameleon!

And in addition to all of these changes we’d love to hear from you!

1) What is your favorite BonBon topic:  Fashion? Food? Decor? Beauty? DIY? We want to hear what type posts are your favorite!
2) How do you access BonBon:  Mobile? Web? Email subscribe?
3) What’s one thing you’d like to see us do more of or better?

And now we have some exciting news…Minnetonka has offered to give one lucky reader her choice of any of the shoes Kristin and her lil’ lady bean rocked in her Minnetonka feature! You could win your choice of the Full Leopard Mocs, 3-Layer Fringe Boots or Infant Booties!

minnetonka

The fun isn’t over…We’re also going to throw in a $50.00 Nordstrom gift card just to say thanks! And make sure you come back this afternoon for another fabulous BonBon blogiversary giveaway!

    Happy blogiversary! Fasion is my favorite, but I like that you mix it up some too. Keeps it real. I access via Reader 95% of the time, but I’ve also clicked over from FB and once in a great while, Twitter. (I totally don’t get the point of Twitter, and thanks to Instagram and Pinterest, I rarely even try anymore.)

    Oh wow I didn’t realize our blogs were the same exact age. 🙂

    Congrats on four amazing years. You both have become such staples in the fashion blogosphere, that it’s strange to think it has only been four years.

    I’ve really enjoyed your blog over the past four years. Not just because of the fashion or design tips, but because of you two gals. It’s fun to know the women behind the blog. To answer your questions, my favorite topic is the fashion (but I love all your posts, let’s be real). I access your blog on the computer. I have you on my blog list, which is easiest for me to access. And I would love you to just keep continuing what you’ve been doing!

    You both look stunning in that top photo by the way.

    And what a cool giveaway! I’m totally entering! xoxo

    happy 4 years!!

    so happy to have met you along the way. i look forward to the new look and the changes that it brings along with.

    1) not very helpful, but i really do like a mixture of topics. with a little (or a lot!) of your lives/families/stories mixed in :).
    2) web (reader)
    3) less giveaways… not that i don’t appreciate them, but sometimes it can be a little consuming (personally) trying to meet all of the giveaway requirements while reading/commenting~ even though i want to support/participate, i’ve had to step back from spending SO much time on the computer, so this is one area that i’ve stepped away from in regards to my own reading/commenting.

    i always love and appreciate your spirit, your enthusiasm, and your extreme passion- which comes through your words, your posts, and your blog loud and clear. thank you for lighting up my reader each and every day! xoxo

    1) Is it wrong to like all of the BonBon topics? I think not! My favorite probably has to be fashion or DIY.

    2) The blog is part of my Google Reader, which I check hourly, pretty much.

    3) I really like the DIY and home decorating posts that you ladies do. Our styles seem to be in the same realm, so I am always inspired to try something new.

    Happy 4th Anniversary!
