Lucky Duck wins a beautiful pink hobo bag from Donna Bella Designs.
When I saw that I had an opportunity to win a bag from Donna Bella Designs, I jumped at the chance! They were running a Sweetheart Sweepstakes for Valentine’s Day:
Entering is easy — we just want to hear some good (and bad) LOVE STORIES! Simply Find Facebook Post Here with a brief story about how you met your spouse or significant other…OR, if you are single, we want just the opposite, which is to hear about your worst date EVER! In fact, if you have a spouse/BF/GF but think you have a better bad date story, submit that instead! All entrants, whether their stories are SWEET or SOUR, will have a chance to win a *SWEET* Grand Prize.
Taking the “worst date EVER” angle
Last summer, I met someone while swimming on the roof at Gansevoort Park on my sister’s birthday. While I wasn’t too interested at the time, I appreciated his persistence for about a month and agreed to meet him at The Frying Pan for a summertime cocktail outside. On our big date, he showed up 45 minutes late, took this video of me out front, took a phone call in another language, went to his car to get a phone charger – only to never return! Here’s my blog about the experience and how the night ended: http://goluckyduck.wordpress.com/2013/08/01/the-frying-pan-in-nyc-doesnt-disappoint/
Winning FIRST place!
As odd as “The Frying Pan” story was, it gained the judges’ attention! In fact, my prize pack is totally worth my date gone wrong. The prize package includes (described left to right):
A Donna Bella Designs “Farin” Handbag in pink
Flower Collection cell phone holder/stand
Flower Collection Eyeglasses Holder
Teen Sparkle Collection Jewelry Tree
Flower Collection Earring/Ring Holder
Donna Bella Designs Fashion Handbags perfect for Spring
I love the variety that Donna Bella Designs offers. The Fashion Line is non-leather, perfect for Vegan shoppers, those who enjoy a savvy price point, and New Yorkers who are constantly on the go outside in the elements. The Fashion Line is incredible. For example, can you believe that this Agate Inlaid Square bag from India is under $40.00?! I wouldn’t blink an eye to see this at a high end sample sale in New York City.
Explore the 100% Italian Leather Collection
For those who want a sharp, sexy leather bag, Donna Bella Designs offers that too. And, the collection is gorgeous! I love the style of the Desiderare Leather Hobo; the silver hardware is gorgeous! There are dozens to pick from, offered in many different colors, styles, and hardware details.
Enjoying my prize
I am so grateful and happy to have my new pink bag for Spring. In fact, I recorded a Fireside Chat to show my reaction opening my package. I went ahead and shortened the clip to zero in on the bag:
I love that the inside of the bag has a ton of pockets, giving me easy access to keys, my phone, wallet, gloss, and Metro card.
