Issa Giveaway!

Issa Giveaway!

I have teased this giveaway a bit because I am super excited about it and who does not love a good giveaway!  This one is a bit different than what you are accustomed to from Black Girls Who Brunch.  Instead of giving you a gift card to a great brunch, I am giving you a few accessories to take with you to brunch.  Get excited! Issa Giveaway!!

The Bag

Issa Giveaway- The Outfit

Here is my snazzy brunch attire with my favorite skirt from Haute Dimensions.

While I do not intend to be a fashion blogger, I recognize that brunch IS a fashion event.   Peak brunch season coincides with maxi dress season too, so you need to have plenty of those on deck.  Another area where folks make a statement are with the accessories including statement clutches!  Keeping that in mind, I partnered with Food Before Love to giveaway a super cute brunch bag to one lucky “Brunch Queen!”


This statement bag has a faux leather finish with satin lining.  This statement piece is also HUGE.  You can totally fit an iPad inside.   I know because I stuffed my iPad in there to test it out HA.  But for real, you can put a whole bunch of stuff in here which is perfect for those brunches that turn into day parties, and late night turn-ups!

If brunch queen does not describe you, no worries!  Food Before Love has you covered with a couple of other cute pieces including a bag dedicated to the guac lovers and mimosa fanatics!  For those of you who do not want to test their luck with the giveaway, or if you want one of the other featured bags, be sure to head to Food Before Love to purchase!

Issa Giveaway- Extra Money For Guac

Another bag available on Food Before Love!

The Jewelry

Now that we have the clutch covered, lets move on to the jewelry because that is JUST as necessary for the perfect brunch ensemble.  My friends’ mom recently started her own jewelry store via Paparazzi.  Her curated store, has some super cute items that would set off any brunch outfit.   To add to the fun, she provided me with a few items to add to this giveaway!  That’s right, so on top of a super cute clutch, the winner will also win three new jewelry pieces!  Be sure to check out her store to get an idea of what the winner will receive!

The Rules!

I feel like a mini Oprah right now! I just love giving stuff away :).  To enter to win the bag PLUS three pieces of a jewelry follow these rules:
