A Little Something Something

The Whim Wham Life has a new friend!

1). I totally just referred to my blog like it's a living and breathing thing.
2). I hope we can still be friends.
3). I think you'll like this new friend.
4). Or maybe you guys are old friends and I'm like that new girl who prances into your school and wows everyone with my trove of Gelly Roll pens, Lisa Frank notebooks, and totally steals your thunder. What? That doesn't happen anymore?
5). Ok. I'm done.

Needless to say, I'm pee-my-pants-excited to announce a new sponsor on this ol' blog.

These Brazilian Wish Bracelets have been a tradition in Brazil & South America for over 200 years. They are said to bring good luck and wish fulfillment to those that carry them.

Celebrities love this unique accessory too!

{Camilla Belle}
{Lauren Conrad}

How it's Done
*Wrap your Belo Band around your wrist and tie three knots.
*Make a wish with each knot.
*When your Belo Band breaks down and falls off, it is believed that your three wishes will come true.

I just love these little bracelets. Wishes and whimsy all wrapped up into a fashion accessory? Yes please!

Belo Bands has offered all of you guys a coupon code for 20% off all bands, good thru April 14th.

Just type in "whimwham" when you checkout.

I have a few of these bracelets for a giveaway!
The winner will receive {2} Wish Bands
{One for you and one for a friend. Or both for you if you want double the wishes. Ha. I know you too well.}

{To Enter}
1. Be a follower of The Whim Wham Life
2. Leave a comment below saying what you're wishing for
3. "Like" Belo Bands on {Facebook} for an additional entry, if you wish. Ha. wish.
3. Winner will be picked via and announced on Monday, April 4th.

Happy Wishes!

First, thank you for your comment. You should follow me, I am following you now.

And thank you for such a great post. Really pretty.

Rissy said...

aww yes! so happy for you that you got a sponsor.

And this one is super cool.

If I win this, what are the rules on having someone else tie the knots for you? cause I'll probably end up tying them all on top of each other. FAIL : (

Happy Thursday (aka almost Friday) girl!


hayley j said...

cailen ascher said...

congrats on the new sponsor! and what a cool product : )

adorable blog - i'm your newest follower.


TB said...

I wish that my sister would be healthy. She got some bad news yesterday, and we're waiting to hear the results on whether or not her next stop will be an oncologist.

...I guess that's more of a prayer, but any wish I'd make for myself would be paltry in comparison right now. I can use all the luck I can get right now. If I win, I'll give her the other bracelet. :)

Leigh said...

Such a great giveaway! I am already a follower and I am wishing that my half marathon training goes well!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. You definitely need to try the rubber band trick on your husband :)

I also "like" belo bands on Facebook now. I love this idea! I had a different style of bracelet I made when I was younger that had the same type of idea behind it.

Happy Friday!

I'm a follower!! (Well, of this blog, at least :D )

T.L. Holmes Williams said...

These bracelets are FAB-ulous!!
(yes, they are of a selfish nature)
1. Our home will sell quickly.
2. I will find a lovable job when we move to R.I.
3. To be prego by the end of summer (or before!)

I almost feel horrible to be so self-centered with these wishes...but I'll get over it, I think ;)

Mrs. Biscuit said...

Wishes... Hmm...
1. I wish I could magically find millions of dollars and travel the world with the mister.

2. I wish said dollars would be ours to keep, like from winning a prize/lottery so I wouldn't get it trouble for using the $ to travel.

3. I wish to win this giveaway!

How's about that? =)

And They Lived Happily Ever After...
