here’s what i would buy if i won the big splendid prize! let me know if you entered, ok? i can’t wait to see the photos you all take!

here’s how to win the $500 splendid gift card…(CLOSED)

1. follow splendid & designlovefest on instagram here and here.

2. take a colorful photo that inspires you and tag it #splendidcolorfest on instagram. you can enter as many time as you wish. have fun with it!

i will choose one winner on march 26th, 2013 at midnight PST, and we will announce the winning photograph on march 27th, 2013. look out for your photo on my instagram that day, too! open to us residents only, full rules and regulations here. $500 value. this contest is sponsored by splendid.

    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be
    greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Neighbors also visit home and put colors on the individuals and say
    to them bura na mano aaj holi hai. Also while a tuxedo
    might be the perfect outfit if you are performing magic for a holiday party or corporate event,
    the same clothing may seem out of place if you are performing magic at the birthday party for a 5
    year old. Rituals of Teej: Women undergo fasts; sing folk songs and dance in the name of Goddess Parvati.
