4-year Blogging Anniversary + a Tieks Giveaway!

It's hard to believe that I have been blogging for four years! I started Cornflake Dreams in 2010 as a creative outlet from my 9-5 job and it has evolved into so much more. This blog has become a part of my life -- and I really appreciate all of the support that I have received over the years my readers. You have been with me throughout some of my happiest and most challenging times -- our engagement, wedding, travels across Europe and beyond, my crohn's diagnosis and management, my 1,000th blog post and most recently our move across the country. I am so grateful for the friends --online and IRL -- that I have made through blogging. I'm looking forward to continue blogging and sharing stories about my life and my favorite things. 

I thought it only makes sense to give back a little something to you! I am giving away $150 gift card to Tieks.  I own Tieks in matte black, ballerina pink, copperhead snakeskin, and silver lake -- they are my favorite ballet flat brand.
Please enter below using the Rafflecopter widget. One lucky winner will be announced next Tuesday, September 23 -- along with another great giveaway. Thank you for your support!

Good luck!

  40. Four years of blogging and more than 1,000 posts? TOTALLY IMPRESSIVE....especially since I felt really accomplished yesterday with my 100th post! Hahaha! And what a fabulous giveaway! I've been dying to try a pair of Tieks, but I haven't quite convinced myself to spend that much on flats! Perhaps I'm a bit afraid that they're totally worth it, and then I'll be like you and need MULTIPLE pairs! :)

    ReplyDelete

  87. I have gotten SO bad at commenting over the past few months, but I always always always read your new posts and can't believe it's been this long! I remember when you were still engaged and exploring Chicago - you were (and still are!) one of my brightest blogging role models for how you keep things personal and authentic and relatable no matter what you're blogging about - it always seems like you're having a blast being here, and that makes cornflake dreams a blast to read. here's to many more!

    ReplyDelete
  88. Congrats on your 4th anniversary! Being a blogger isn't easy so this a MAJOR accomplishment. Pat yourself on the back and pick me…ha! But seriously, such a great giveaway. Fingers crossed!
