Share Your Style - Hair Accessory Swap!

 Hello friends!
We (Maria & Nichelle) are so excited to share with you a new swap series we are calling
Share Your Style! Share your style is all about making new bloggy BFF's, getting to know each other better through sharing our own personal style and swapping pretties with one another!

We are hoping to do more Share Your Style Swaps through out the year, with different items to swap, like bracelets, necklaces, maybe even makeup and many other things style related!
But this time around we are doing a Hair Accessory Swap!
*Credit for swap idea and post format goes to Illene & Leonora

How Do I sign up?
 To sign up all you need to do is fill out the google document form by visiting the "Rules and Regulations" section at the bottom of this blog post, we will then set you up with a partner to get to know and swap with!  (before signing up PLEASE read entire blog post AND our "rules and regulations" section. Spots are limited. Thanks ladies!)

What type of hair accessories can I swap?
When you fill out the google doc form you will be asked what kind of colors and hair accessories you prefer. So that your partner will get to know YOUR style preferences and can give you something you will like, but with an added twist of THEIR style mixed in. :)

We are encouraging everyone to hand make the accessories you swap. We have rounded up several great tutorials and ideas for you to check out, below! BUT if you dont feel confident in your crafty skills enough to make something, we are ok with you buying something awesome too... Keep in mind their style preferences and be sure to add in YOUR style too so that we can all try something fun and new!
Here are some awesome ideas/tutorials to help and inspire you!


What happens after we swap?
Once everyone has swapped it will be time to SHOW OFF your goodies!! We will be hosting a Link Up for everyone who swapped. We are asking that all bloggers who participate in this swap write up a blog post about it! You can make it an outfit post or just make it about the style swap. Either way please have the post up and running by November 12th so you can link up with Maria & Nichelle on our blogs, and show off the new pretties you got!
