Giveaway :: Amanda Thon Metalsmith

Thursday, August 2, 2012

{please visit Amanda Thon Metalsmith here}

Have you ever noticed that almost every single fashion magazine will invariably run a feature on how to travel light without sacrificing style? You take a handful of basic wardrobe pieces, sprinkle in a couple pairs of shoes, two handbags and a few key accessories and voila! Your travel style is chic, easy, and you can fit it all in a carry on! I don’t know about you, but I struggle. It seems traveling light still entails far more accouterments than a two page spread in a glossy mag would lead you to believe. Except for one part: accessories. I am a firm believer that simple and elegant jewelry when traveling is a must.

Enter Amanda Thon and her shop Amanda Thon Metalsmith. Her gorgeously sophisticated line of jewelry translates from a casual dinner in your own backyard to a stroll through the streets of Crete with a gorgeous stranger on your arm. (Carry on.) This is the type of jewelry you reach for when you want to create a memory. It so simply fits into your life it seems as if it were there all along. My next vacation? I’m taking the Arrow Band Ring and the Coral Medium Post Earrings and I’ll put those style magazines to shame. Trust.

Amanda Thon Metalsmith is giving away one pair of Seafoam Micro Posts and one pair of Neon Coral Micro Poststo two lucky winners (one pair each!) To enter to win, please answer the following question by Thursday, August 9th. Also, please specifiy the color you prefer in your answer! Comments now closed…good luck!
What is your idea of a perfect weekend getaway?
Start checking the winner’s box on Monday, August 13th, to see if you’ve won!

    My life has been so busy lately that my current idea of a perfect weekend getaway would be a staycation at home…sleeping in, watching bad TV, eating bad stuff, spending quality time with my new hubby…yeah that sounds about perfect!

    With the kids, a trip to Omaha to check out the zoo. Without the kids, wine tasting along the Missouri river.

    A perfect weekend getaway to me could be almost anywhere, as long as I’m surrounded by friends and family that I love and make me laugh. We can do almost anything – as long as we’re all in a good mood, I’m happy 🙂

    A trip out to the North Fork… so relaxing, and an it feels a world away from home.

    Jenni says:

    fresh air, beautiful skies, tall buildings and unexpected surprises. I love a quick trip to a big city. walking the streets and founding hidden gems in the form of boutiques, storefronts and sculptures. A delicious lunch eaten in a park. Taking pictures to remember it all, and ending with a romantic dinner for two. 🙂

    Lindsay says:

    A trip to the beach where I don’t have to decide what’s for dinner or clean up the dishes after!

    Peyton says:

    My idea of a getaway would have to be somewhere tropical, tis typical, I know. Somewhere near a blue ocean, and laying in a hammock between two palm trees. The sun warming your skin, and the cold breeze cooling you off. And being able to smell the fresh tropical air. The sound of birds chirping and waves crashing in the background. The ocean mist lightly hitting your skin. Yum! That is my idea of a peaceful relaxing getaway, and much more!

    Brittany says:

    the purpose of a weekend is to destress from the week. i too often use the weekend to catch up on things i didn’t have time to do in the week which sometimes stresses me out. I’m most happy on a weekend when I’m relaxed, surrounded by loved ones and have a fresh mani/pedi.

    Courtney says:

    Driving up to San Francisco, visiting some awesome little boutique shops, walking around Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, maybe seeing SFMOMA, and of course eating at a couple great restaurants.

    Emma says:

    Swimming in a crisp, cool lake in Vermont and eating a big plate of local cheese!

    Kristen H. says:

    Anything out of the heat, mountains sound nice right now! Florida is brutal this time of year!

    Jessica says:

    Camping, hiking, swimming, hammock-ing, campfire-ing, s’mores-ing.

    Sarah says:

    My idea of a perfect weekend getaway involves a cabin in the mountains wiht a stellar view AND a balcony hammock, my husband, books, French wine, Dutch cheese, and a mindless book. Ah, heavenly.

    Jac says:

    I love going with my boyfriend and daughter down to the local beach for the weekend. Yes, it’s only about 20 minutes away but not having to spend an hour searching for parking or planning out our day is an amazing bonus. Plus, my bf’s family has a beach house 3 blocks from the sand so we get to take these weekend getaways for free and basically as often as we like.

    Beverly says:

    My perfect weekend getaway involves a lakehouse, if possible. A few of my friends’ families have lakehouses within a few hours drive, and they’re the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind, and watch how time slows down. There’s no internet and no cell phone service, but there’s billions of stars, lazy swims, and lots of porch lounging. There’s nothing better!

    Anne says:

    Niagara on the lake with a Pinic lunch with my wonderful husband we went there for the day on our first anniversary when we had no money and many times since owe tenth when we stayed in a lovely cottage at a winery and manta times since.

    Sarah Jane says:

    My idea of the perfect weekend getaway is something easy breezy with my lover & a beach involved. A little sightseeing, a little R&R, and lots of good food & wine.
    (ps – I love both the earrings but could probably get more use out of the coral pair!)

    Melinda K E says:

    Someplace new to me, with lots of good restaurants, interesting little shops to browse and lots of pretty scenery!

    Cat says:

    wine country. Beautiful views, great food, great wine, and good company.

    sam says:

    Anywhere where there is great company, food and drinks – this can be up the street at the neighbors house, the local pool or at a family get together.  Its not always about “going away” to some vacation spot or resort.

    Aleta says:

    Anywhere we can meet up with friends, enjoy nature, and read a good book away from the hustle of daily deadlines and work!!

    Bike rides at the beach….to a carpet picnic on a rainy day..My perfect weekend is doing anything that includes my hubbie and our two daughters….

    cottage on the beach, snuggling on a blanket with my man, grilled hot dogs and s’mores over an open fire. (seafoam)

    Camping in my imaginary Airstream with my two favorite people.  And thinking of the possibility of staying and never going home :-))

    A road trip with my special fella. We’ve been dating for just two months, so we’re still in that lovey-dovey, disgustingly happy phase. 🙂 <3

    Eden says:

    Wine and/or cocktails. Yoga. My Sister. Vampire Weekend. Denim items. Authentic Conversation. Delicious Food. Interesting car window views. Paul Simon. Plenty of time.

    Katherine says:

    My perfect weekend getaway would be at the doggie rescue taking them out for a walk and giving them the attention they deserve

  34. 34
    Stella says:

    My perfect vacation would be any that someone else planned and surprised me with. I’m supremely lucky to have a life in which I travel often and have lots of vacation time, but I’m always planning it and more often than not I’m flying solo. So spending a vacation with another person and just being along for the ride sounds amazing.

    brenda says:

    sun, sand, great food, great shopping and silence…

    Madeline says:

    A stay in a hotel with a big fluffy comforter reading a good book & ordering room service!

  37. 37
    Heather P. says:

    My ideal weekend vacation would be to stay at the bed and breakfast my husband and I got married in last summer. It’s only 10 minutes away from where we live now, and they make the most amazing breakfast every morning! The town that the B&B is in also has a small, but very good farmer’s market every Saturday morning. My husband is partial to their sweet corn. I swear he would spend the rest of his weekend away eating corn and watching soccer.  🙂

    Kellie says:

    Well, today we are headed to the Snake river in Jackson Hole, WY to camp and run the river with friends and family. That’s pretty perfect to me!

    a hike by myself. the serenity is so calming

    Andi says:

    I love it when my hubby takes my son out for “boy” adventures and gives me a bit of alone time to craft and catch up on work (or naps). Paired with a good movie and a glass of wine with him in the evening after bedtime stories are over…, makes for a perfect Saturday. Simple and wonderful. Love both earrings… But I love surprises too.

    Theresa says:

    I would love to go someplace wooded, with good food and wine :p

    meghan says:

    Somewhere without much driving so we would have time to relax. Probably somewhere with open spaces for the kids to play and also shaded areas for me to sit and drink wine.

    And no bugs. Definitely somewhere that has no mosquitos.

    Renee Richardson says:

    My perfect getaway is anywhere alone with my husband. We have 4 young children and I honestly don’t remember the last time we had an outing alone. Thanks for the awesome giveaway 🙂

    Lucy W. says:

    Love the earrings!! My perfect weekend getaway would be a drive up to the mountains when the air is cool to hike, explore, find some live music, and watch a couple sunrises with coffee and breakfast in hand.

    Suzi C says:

    Somewhere warm. Somewhere quiet. Somewhere friendly, and walkable. Somewhere magical and dense, yet open and airy. Clouds, sun, rain, whatever as long as there are stars down to my nose… No cellphone reception… No emails. Just me and whoever else needed to be there too. 

  49. 49
    Tiffany says:

    My perfect weekend getaway would be to explore our beautiful state with my sweetie. There are so many cute little towns with adorable shops, cafes and natural sites to see in Washington! We’d pick out new places to explore and stay overnight in a cozy B&B. While I’m at it, let’s throw in a delicious meal at a small farm to table restaurant.

    Megan A. says:

    I grew up in a small town and my perfect weekend getaway would have been a trip to the big city. I’m a “city girl” now, and now my perfect getaway would be to a small town. Preferably one by a body of water… Lake, river, ocean… Whichever!
