Introducing March Sponsors

This year, I have decided to open my blog up to sponsors.Below are my sponsors for the month of February. Please read about them. Some of them are doing specials discounts and offers for Preppy Girl Meets World readers.

1) Kimmie Schiffel, Independent Scentsy Consultant
The lovely Kimmie of Full Circle Adventures has joined the ranks to become a Scentsy consultant.


That is her furbaby Gabby pictured above. Kimmie loves candles but needed a more pet-friendly alternative to them when Gabby's poor little tail kept catching on fire. Since Scentsy warmer systems are flameless, they are safe for pets (and children!).

Currently, the March catalog is chock full of exciting new products and scents for the spring/summer! Wellington the Duck, is Scentsy's current Buddy of the Month and would look adorable in someone's Easter gift basket!
Normally $25, on sale this month for $22.50.
In addition, Sunlit Morning is the Scent of the Month. Any products in this scent are 10% off through the end of March.

There are several new warmers and scents out that I cannot wait to try, but this is the item that I am the most excited about.
Heartfelt Full Size Premium Warmer- $35

As many of you reading this post know, I have heart disease and have had two surgeries in my lifetime. The warmer pictured above is a charity warmer with $5 from the sale of every warmer going to the American Heart Association. As most of you can imagine, this is a cause that is very near and dear to my family's hearts. (Cheesy pun not intended.)

Kimmie is generously offering Preppy Girl Meets World readers an amazing special for March.

I am hosting an online party with her and 20% of the sales from my party for anything- not just the Heartfelt warmer- will be donated to the American Heart Association.

2) Sweet Tea Paperie
Sweet Tea Paperie is an amazing stationery and gift shop that carries so many fun items.

It's hard to pick what is your favorite product from Sweet Tea Paperie since they have so many wonderful products at all price points.
Acrylic Catchall Tray- $19
This tray is currently on my wish list. I would love to get it to keep my daily jewelry like my Hermes bracelet in.

Obviously, the one thing I do not have enough of is monogrammed totes. Picture my husband groaning as I write this. If you are like me and seem to always have too many yet never enough tote bags, add this to your collection.
grommet shopper tote- $39
Monogrammed hats are a new product that Sweet Tea Paperie has started to offer.
monogrammed striped floppy hat- $32
These would be so fun for a beach vacation or the Derby.
Be sure to be on the lookout for a special giveaway from Sweet Tea Paperie!

3) Monogrammed Everything
As the name implies, this store is pretty much my idea of heaven! Monogrammed Everything has so many great items that would make great gifts for brides, babies, and everyone in between!

If you are going on Spring Break and still need a beach towel to take with you, don't worry, Monogrammed Everything has you covered. And they're on sale to boot!

solid beach towels- regularly $27.99, on sale for $24.99
striped beach towels- regularly $31.99, on sale for $23.99
polka dotted beach towels- regularly $27.99, on sale for $22.99
The monogrammed clogs are an incredibly popular item and with 18 clog colors, 20 thread colors, and the options to add a high heel or painted heel, the options are pretty much endless and you will be sure that your clogs will be unique!

For the month of March, Monogrammed Everything is generously offering Preppy Girl Meets World readers $10 off the purchase of any clogs. To take advantage of this offer, use coupon code CLOGS10 at checkout.

4) Danielle Stage, Stella & Dot Consultant

Stella & Dot is a fun jewelry company. They have so many cute, preppy jewelry pieces at great price points. To me, the jewelry just screams party and fun. One of my all time favorite Stella & Dot pieces are these gorgeous starfish earrings. I have been wanting them for years now and this month they are on sale for 25% off.
starfish earrings- regularly $34, on sale this month for $25.50
I took it as a sign, and they are en route to my house now.

This gorgeous bangle would look beautiful alone or in a stack with other bracelets and would be so cute with a Lilly dress.
sunset bangle- $69
Stella & Dot also makes a jewelry line for little girls.
Kristin pearl bracelet- $16
Pearls and a ladybug? Some ASA needs to buy this for her little legacy immediately!
Stay tuned for a fun giveaway from Danielle Stage and Stella & Dot.

5) Alter Designs
Alter Designs is an Etsy shop which is best known for Gretchen's adorable state charm necklaces. I used to have the New York State one until it got left behind in a hotel somewhere by accident. Sad. It was adorable.
state necklace- available in silver or gold- $28
You can combine several different charms on a single chain to represent states where you've lived or went to school. You can also add an initial charm to one.

My personal favorite item though is this Sweetheart necklace with the adorable coin pearl.
sweetheart necklace- $24

6) Troop Paws

TroopPaws is a company that makes stuffed puppies out of military uniform fabrics. These puppies have a clear pocket on the front so that you can put in the picture of a loved one. These would be cute to give to a child or loved one while the service member is deployed. Below is the Air Force puppy. Obviously, we are partial to that one.

The stuffed animals are made in America. Proceeds from the sale of the TroopPaws go to the Folds of Honor Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity that works to provide scholarships and other assistance to the families of service members that are injured or killed.

The TroopPaws normally cost $29.99, but the company is offering Preppy Girl Meets World readers a discount. If you go through this link and click on the individual dog's picture instead of the buy now button, they will be $24.99.

7) Melynda Lemaire, Initials Inc. Creative Partner
Initials Inc. is a direct sales company that celebrates women's uniqueness with bags and many other personalized items. Unlike other brands out there, Initials Inc. never charges you extra to personalize an item.

They have so many wonderful products for both your home and personal life. My favorites are:
Take Along Caddy- $25
Perfect for organizing random things around your house or taking to the grocery store or on errands.
All Weather Blanket- $38
Awesome for picnics, going to the beach, or other outdoor events.
picnic tote $110

My wishlist item right now: includes everything for a complete picnic for four including fabric napkins, plates, utensils, wine glasses, a corkscrew, and salt and pepper shakers.

For the month of March, Initials Inc. is offering 50% of the G&G Gear Sports or Travel Duffle with a $35 purchase.

In addition to this wonderful special, Melynda is also offering all Preppy Girl Meets World readers 10% off their purchases. To take advantage of this great special- check out the selection from Initials Inc. then email Melynda at melynda.lemaire @ and say that you are making a purchase from the Preppy Girl Meets World party and she will adjust the total for you.

8) Silver Lining Decor
Silver Lining Decor is a gorgeous Etsy shop that features the most beautiful vintage jewelry that has been revamped and given a new life. Rachel, the shop's owner has a background in interior design and says that "I really love the idea of using a piece of jewelry one woman wore and cherished many years ago, and turning it into that special piece that the modern girl can love and wear today."

All of her pieces are bright, and springy/summery, and would look great with a Lilly dress or a cute sundress in my opinion. You really cannot pick just one favorite item from her shop. Try it, I dare you. You can't. Prices range from $8 for a cute pair of bow earrings

to $89 for a stunning vintage necklace with enamel flower.
Since I wear a lot of solid color tops, I would love to get a necklace like this to dress an outfit up and not keep it looking boring.
Vintage Aqua Necklace with Orange Enamel Flower- $46
Stay tuned for a fun giveaway from Silver Lining Decor just in time for Easter!
