Colorful Indie & Chic (and one last GIVEAWAY) …

Hi guys!

It’s Friday! And I’m on vacation! And I’m with my best friend! And I’m getting a Starbucks with my best friend on vacation on Friday!

Okay, so it’s pretty hard to top that … but just so all of you don’t feel left out …

Oh wait. First I have to ask you about … Twitter. Have you heard of it (hahaha) … okay, so yes you’ve heard of it … but do you ‘tweet’? I have to say I’ve been very hesitant to jump on the bandwagon, but I *think* I can I’m almost officially a tweeter. And thanks to the wonder of this social networking genius (see, I can recognize the brilliance) I have connected with some great people.

Like Samantha … of Indie & Chic.

I was able to help her celebrate her 1 year blog-iversary … and she sweetly reciprocated with an interview and giveaway for my sunshiney happy days party.

Like Kara, I am amazed as this young, spirited and DRIVEN entrepreneur. Seriously, how cool are these girls?!?!

Let’s get to know a little more about Samantha …

A little about you?

I’m Samantha and I am twenty-one years into this adventure called Life. I will be a Senior in college this Fall and I am excited and terrified to graduate :)

So … you started your Etsy store while in college, right? I’d love to hear a little about how that happened and how you juggled it with school.

Yes, I started my etsy store my Sophomore year in college, I was 20 at the time. It began with hair accessories, such as headbands and bobby pins. In July of last year, I switched etsy store names and branched out into jewelry as well. People ask me a lot about how I have time to run an etsy store and take a full course load, and honestly some weeks it is hard. Although, the good days outweigh the bad by a landslide. The store allows my brain to take a break from my schoolwork and be more creative. Most of the time it is a stress relief and not an additive. I really enjoy the creative process and interacting with my customers.

Favorite Color Combinations?

Hmm, favorite color combinations. I always tend to lean towards brighter colors, so right now I am really enjoying Aqua/Turquoise, Lime Green and Bright Orange. I love those colors together.

Favorite item currently in your shop?

Right now it would be my new earrings that I introduced last week. They are so fun and summery. They are kinda symbolic for me, because a new phase of Indie and Chic is starting. I’m branching out of the comfort zone I’ve been in for the last 6 months.

Favorite Starbucks drink OR favorite dessert?

I’m more of a local coffee shop girl myself since I live in a small college town, but I always order a Chai Latte no matter where I go. They are so yummy and the smell is to die for.

And a Friday Giveaway to finish up this party right … one reader will win an Indie & Chic flower ring.
