Giveaway :: Tiny Galaxies

{please visit Tiny Galaxies here}

 For my son’s first birthday, we created a time capsule. We asked our friends and family to write down any significant event that occurred in the first year of his life so that, in thirty years, he would have a picture of what the world was like the first year he was alive.  My first thought for the capsule was the Mars Rover landing because, well, that’s a pretty gigantic event, don’t you think? Me too. It got me thinking about when I was a child and I thought the stars were made out of glitter. (I also thought the moon was actually cheese, but that’s another story.) Mars and glitter and space travel magic are quintessential wanderlust facilitators.

Sara Broski of Tiny Galaxies has taken everything magic I have ever felt about the sky and traveling and translated it into fantastically chic jewelry. Broski started working with resin and perfected her craft (while honing her metalworking techniques) and uses her unique vision to create accessories that marry two of my favorite things: “simplicity and sparkle.” Aside from the beauties I have pictured above, these super tiny circle post earrings and these globe earrings in sparkly taupe seem destined for all of your wanderlust adventures. To the moon and back, my friends.

Tiny Galaxies is giving away one $40 gift certificate to the shop (my favorites are pictured above) to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Wednesday, August 29th.  Comments now closed…good luck!

    That is a tough one since I have never been to Europe but have always wanted to go I would pick an all expenses paid trip around the world first.

    I’m sure space is a fantastic place to go, but meeting new people is one of my favorite things about traveling, so I’d have to pick the all expenses paid trip around the world!

    Lauren G says:

    Around the world for sure, space is really scary to me and there are so many places here I still need to see!

    Trisha says:

    I’ve just lost about ten minutes of my work day admiring her jewelry, and the question of what to get my best friend for her birthday has been solved! 

    What a hard question? My first instinct is to say space, because well, it’s space! In the end I think I would choose to travel around the world though, because there is just so much of it I want to see still.

    around the world. for me travel is all about the people you meet along the way – not sure I can say the same for space (at least not that we know of!)

    Kristen H. says:

    A trip to outer space would be one (although amazing) memory…a trip around the world would be dozens and dozens of memories…I would take the trip around the world!

    Lindsay V. says:

    Around the world.  There are so many people and places on here on earth that I need to see before I even think about going to outer space.

    I think I’m to anxious to fly into space! Around the world please 🙂
    or some sparkly earrings will do the trick

    Duh. The trip into space! When I was in middle school, our science teacher took us to the movies to go see Apollo 13. I remember sitting in that movie theatre completely transfixed on how simply beautiful space looked – and, it was all simulated! I’ve daydreamed about what space looks like and it would be just amazing to be on the outside looking in.

    Tiffany says:

    Paid trip around the world. Not going to lie…a bit scared of the dark…space looks pretty dark!

    Lauren says:

    My first inclination is to say ‘around the world’ because I’ve never been outside of North America, but the more I think on it, the more I want to experience the great wide open of space. As much as I love learning about other cultures and people (I am going into Social Work after all), there is something intoxicating about the mystery of what exists beyond our world. Not to mention all those stars…

    Space – to be able to be removed from the crazy busyness and minutiae of life on Earth, to have the burdens of every day lifted for just a few moments, to see ‘the bigger picture’ and know that our dreams have room to grow! That would be an amazing adventure!

    Jenni says:

    I would definitely have to go around the world. I love exploring new places and trying amazing regional cuisine and perusing local art and beauty. While i’m sure outer space is BEAUTIFUL…I prefer ceviche to powdered snacks.  🙂

    Marta GM says:

    I’d rather see the world, after all, I’ve only visited two continents!

    Lindsay says:

    Since I’m incredibly claustrophobic, I’m going to opt for a voyage around the globe! I think the view of space is probably prettier from here, and I can’t get enough of world travel, anyway. I’m working to fill up my passport! 😀

    I have my grandfather’s old globe on a shelf, and I stick map pins into every country I’ve visited. It’s a really fun visual reminder of some wonderful times and people.

    Around the world….. I still have too many fantastic places to explore before going into space.

    Courtney says:

    I get motion sickness, so I’d rather fly around the world. I wouldn’t have fun on a space ship…

    Phoebe says:

    I got pretty excited when I read this. Most definitely the trip into space. I gasped when I read the ?, almost as if it’s going to happen! The way I figure it, space would be a once in a lifetime chance. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to travel around the world (little by little) all on my own. 🙂

    Jessica says:

    I wanted to be an astronaut my whole childhood. I dreamed of being onboard the Starship Enterprise (with Captain Picard, obvs!). I spent a year as an astrophysics major in college and came to the realization that there’s a lot more fiction than science in Star Trek. I’m now in another field of science, one that won’t have me off the planet anytime soon. But I’ll never, ever be able to shake that desire to visit the stars. Trip into space for me!

  23. 23
    Jennifer says:

    I would be so afraid to go into space! that doesn’t seem like an adventure to me – it’s more like torture being confined to such a small sapce. But a trip around the world? That’s an adventure I would like to take!

    Emma says:

    Around the world, without hesitation. There are so many places on this planet that will no longer exist by the end of my lifetime but space will always be there.

    Anne says:

    Absolutely around the world so many places to explore.

    echo says:

    Space! I sort of believe the world is as accessible as you decide to see it, but space is… well, space is SPACE! The trip around the world would still happen when I got back, of course, but over a lifetime and less paid for…

    ren says:

    easy one for me, a trip around the world. i prefer to be able to breathe without extra equipment. and haven’t you ever listened to “major tom”? people get lost in space! they even made a movie called that!

    Kate B says:

    Oh man, that jewelry is gorgeous. Combining minimalism and sparkle? Sign me up! I totally favorited the shop for perusing in the future (if I don’t win, I have my eye on a few things anyway!).

    As amazing as it would be to travel into space and feel the starfield in 3D all around you, even my hypothetical self would probably chose the trip around the world. There are so many places I’ve always wanted to go and know I’d never be able to afford even spread throughout a lifetime!

    Peyton says:

    Hmmm, tis a difficult question, I suppose. A paid trip around the world sounds good, but think of how many people do that (not many) but less get to go into space. I would choose space because it really is a once in a life time opportunity. I could see so many new beautiful things, and learn so much.

  31. 31
    AmyB says:

    Both trips would be the most thrilling experience of a lifetime! There are so many things I would like to see in THIS world that I wouldn’t be able to say no to a ’round the world trek. Machu Piccu, Prince Edward Island, London and Dunedin are all on my list of places to visit in this lifetime and It would definitely be several dreams come true.

    Jessminda says:

    Space! One day I want to get myself around the world.  But a flight into space? Priceless. 

  33. 33
    dolores says:

    I choose trip around the world as it allows me the time to connect with people in each community visited.

  34. 34
    Loretta says:

    Around the world, for sure! I have the feeling I’d think space was cool for the first few hours, but then run out of stuff to look at! Plus, the food would be terrible in space!

    Trip around the world – to experience all of that would be priceless.

    Erin says:

    Oh my gosh, space but only if it’s futuristic space where there’s colonized space stations and space ships and fast ways to travel to other inhabited planets. If it’s current space? I’ll take the trip around the world.

    I love the name of this company. both have great pulls to them. I’d love to blast off in a rocket, but I really want to see the rest of the world. I’m also not sure what would have to my gramma body is space, so I think I’ll stay put.

    Brittany Kotary says:

    the world definitely – heights scare me so being in space wouldn’t be ideal : )

    Mary M. says:

    A trip around the world would be great! Being up in space sounds scary, but the view would be mind blowing!

    Nikki H says:

    Oooh, most definitely an all expence trip around the world. The idea of being up in space kinda freaks me out.

    Dana says:

    I’ve got the golden ticket (insert excited dancing here); I’ve got the golden ticket!  When’s my launch date, because I’m going to SPACE.

    If I saved really hard, I could afford a trip around the world in maybe ten years.  Even if I scrimped and saved for the next 60 years, I still wouldn’t have enough to get on the waiting list to go to space.  Easy decision!

    No fun flying into space. 😀

    to fly around the world. there are so many unknowns on our own planet that i would wish to discover.

    Suzi says:

    To fly around the world. I love stars, so I would rather see them from hundreds of different countries/a hundred different ways, than just one way out in space. Of course if you were in space you could see our beautiful Earth.. but to be honest; I would rather walk on this planet and see them, than walk on a star (good luck) and see Earth. Haha.

    I dream about traveling around the world, but my husband dreams of going to space. Honest. That said, I’d still choose traveling around the world. Poor Jimmy. Maybe next time, honey.
