  27. Hello,

    Happy Blogiversary!!
    I made an error while entering this awesome giveaway. On the widget, I followed Martini's and Bikini's on Instagram. I went back to enter my instagram user name and I accidently pasted a pinterest url. Is there anyway you can void that? My user name on instagram is @gibb.alison. Sorry for the trouble.



Thanks for visiting The Sequin Notebook! We LOVE hearing from you :)
B & M
