    So, are we getting a bonus for commenting …? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Would love the earrings but somebody else can have the bag – looks beautiful but I don’t do exotic skins.

    WOW!! WHAT A PERFECT PAIRING, and in a giveaway to boot!! Those earrings really look like heirlooms, something grandma may pass along, if you’re one fortunate granddaughter. They are a nice play on youthful elegance and would look GREAT ON ME!! My dark hair will really show them off and make ’em sparkle. I love the double tear drop. I’ve always wanted an croc bag. Never able to afford such a luxury and this Sophia crocodile tote, is a gift I wouldn’t think of parting with. Love the style, I think croc has a slight ‘sporty-ness’ to it making it playful, versatile but not my everyday choice, of course. Handles are the perfect length and the face is beautiful. Thanks for the great giveaway Bag Snob and extra special thanks to Loren Ridinger & Adriana Castro! matzsmith at gmail dot com BTW I re-subscribed Thank you!!

    First, I signed up for your newsletter using my email which is as follows (kleimanlaw at aol dot com) and I activated my subscription as required.

    I accidentally found myself on this giveaway page on Facebook in the wee hours of the morning. I am so tired, I had to read this giveaway about 8 times because I have never seen such a generous and magnificent giveaway. When I realized it was a real contest and I simply wasn’t dreaming, I almost fell off my chair. The minute I saw these gorgeous Diamond Earrings from Loren Jewels and this stunning Turquoise Sophia crocodile tote from Adriana Castro, I instantly thought of my mother, how wonderful she’d look adorned with these beauties, how happy she would be to receive such beautiful gifts and how much she deserved such treasures for always being the best mother anyone could possibly have. Without sounding melodramatic, I know my mother is a true gift from G-d. She’s far from perfect, we don’t always get along but she’ will ALWAYS drop whatever she is doing to be by my side when I’m overwhelmed, when I’m ill, when she senses I’m depressed or upset , when she knows that I need my mommy to coddle me for a few days. For the last several years, I’ve been very physically ill. Because I was so sick and feeling sorry for myself, it wasn’t until the last few months, while recuperating & feeling stronger, that I’m realizing all the sacrifices my 79 year old mother has ALWAYS made for me my entire life. Like most women, my mother loves beautiful clothing, jewels, handbags and all that good stuff. But while I always dreamed that by this age, (29+) I would be financially stable enough to spoil her with such lovely gifts, her only dream was simply to have her family close at hand, happy and healthy.

    My mom is a beautiful woman, inside and out. She’s always doing for others, places family and close friends above all else. She has had to be strong to endure these recent challenging years and has spent every penny trying to find a doctor who could heal me. I haven’t seen her do anything special for herself, do anything to really have fun in so so long.

    To be able to give her these beautiful gifts, the exquisite Diamond earrings from Loren Jewels AND a gorgeous Turquoise Sophia crocodile tote from Adriana Castro, both of which would look stunning with her beautiful red hair and light blue/green eyes, perfect gifts for the spring/summer season, would be the greatest gift I could ever receive because I know how appreciative and overwhelmed she’d feel. Obviously, no material possession regardless of how valuable monetarily, could ever mean as much to my mother as hearing the words “I LOVE YOU” from her family. But these prizes would make her feel like the incredibly special person she is. I can’t think of anyone who’d look more beautiful or is more deserving of these FABULOUS once in a lifetime treasures than my mom.

    Just as a side note, i spent a while perusing the gorgeous Jewelry Collections from Loren Jewels and although everything is beautiful, my favorite pieces are from the Royal Court Collection. These pieces are absolutely stunning.

    I also spent some time on the Adriana Castro bags site. Although handbags are not a priority in my life as they are for most other women, I couldn’t take my eyes off of these beautiful fresh, clean looking, spring/summery colors. These bags are not only beautiful but roomy and very versatile. It was a very hard decision but I think my favorite handbag was

    the Ostrich Meissa Hobo in PURPLE. GORGEOUS, simply GORGEOUS.

    Good luck to everyone who entered. Every mother deserves to win such fabulous prizes for all the sacrifices they make for their children.

I am so tired, I had to read this giveaway about 8 times because I have never seen such a generous and magnificent giveaway. When I realized it was a real contest and I simply wasn’t dreaming, I almost fell off my chair. The minute I saw these gorgeous Diamond Earrings from Loren Jewels and this stunning Turquoise Sophia crocodile tote from Adriana Castro, I instantly thought of my mother, how wonderful she’d look adorned with these beauties, how happy she would be to receive such beautiful gifts and how much she deserved such treasures for always being the best mother anyone could possibly have. Without sounding melodramatic, I know my mother is a true gift from G-d. She’s far from perfect, we don’t always get along but she’ will ALWAYS drop whatever she is doing to be by my side when I’m overwhelmed, when I’m ill, when she senses I’m depressed or upset , when she knows that I need my mommy to coddle me for a few days. For the last several years, I’ve been very physically ill. Because I was so sick and feeling sorry for myself, it wasn’t until the last few months, while recuperating & feeling stronger, that I’m realizing all the sacrifices my 79 year old mother has ALWAYS made for me my entire life. Like most women, my mother loves beautiful clothing, jewels, handbags and all that good stuff. But while I always dreamed that by this age, (29+) I would be financially stable enough to spoil her with such lovely gifts, her only dream was simply to have her family close at hand, happy and healthy.

    My mom is a beautiful woman, inside and out. She’s always doing for others, places family and close friends above all else. She has had to be strong to endure these recent challenging years and has spent every penny trying to find a doctor who could heal me. I haven’t seen her do anything special for herself, do anything to really have fun in so so long.

    To be able to give her these beautiful gifts, the exquisite Diamond earrings from Loren Jewels AND a gorgeous Turquoise Sophia crocodile tote from Adriana Castro, both of which would look stunning with her beautiful red hair and light blue/green eyes, perfect gifts for the spring/summer season, would be the greatest gift I could ever receive because I know how appreciative and overwhelmed she’d feel. Obviously, no material possession regardless of how valuable monetarily, could ever mean as much to my mother as hearing the words “I LOVE YOU” from her family. But these prizes would make her feel like the incredibly special person she is. I can’t think of anyone who’d look more beautiful or is more deserving of these FABULOUS once in a lifetime treasures than my mom.

    Just as a side note, i spent a while perusing the gorgeous Jewelry Collections from Loren Jewels and although everything is beautiful, my favorite pieces are from the Royal Court Collection. These pieces are absolutely stunning.

    I also spent some time on the Adriana Castro bags site. Although handbags are not a priority in my life as they are for most other women, I couldn’t take my eyes off of these beautiful fresh, clean looking, spring/summery colors. These bags are not only beautiful but roomy and very versatile. It was a very hard decision but I think my favorite handbag was

    the Ostrich Meissa Hobo in PURPLE. GORGEOUS, simply GORGEOUS.
