CasaIdeas Giveaway

December 8th, 2011 | Posted in Giveaway, Home, Local by Meli

As you all know, I am a big fan of CasaIdeas, the fun home goods store in South Miami. I was given an exciting guided tour of their fall collection back in October, and was given a couple of goodie bags. Although I kept one (who wouldn’t), I had an extra and figured I would give you all the opportunity to call it your own! This giveaway includes a versatile black and white tote bag, a colorful notebook, a set of girly nail files and a convenient pedicure set.

Would you like the chance to win?
It’s easy:

1. Comment to this post with what you want the most for your home this Christmas.
2. Add CasaIdeas on Facebook and/or Twitter

A winner will be chosen at random a week from today, December 15th.
Good luck, readers!

I love me a good dose of home goods. You may think this love affair began when I bought my first house, but no. I’ve always loved to spend hours in any sort of home decor/crafting/design store from as long as I could remember. Decorating has always been a love of mine, starting from when I just had my own room in my mother’s home to renovate. So you could imagine my joy when IKEA finally opened its doors in South Florida a couple of years ago. In fact, I joke that the majority of my home is IKEA (but it really is), and that I should be made into some sort of brand ambassador because I am always singing their praises.

But wait.

What is this I hear?

The newly stationed CasaIdeas has moved into my neck of the woods?
I had to check it out.
