Charles River Apparel Giveaway [OVER]

Congrats Rachel B. for winning a Charles River Apparel rain jacket of your choice! A big thank you for everyone else who entered my giveaway!

Charles River Apparel

I'm super excited to share a brand new GIVEAWAY with you guys! I've teamed up with Charles River Apparel to offer Coffee and Cashmere readers the chance to win an amazing New Englander Rain Jacket! These rain jackets come in both women's and men's sizes with plenty of color choices. I picked out the aqua/reflective combo and William chose the taupe/navy jacket. We are pretty fancy.

Let me just tell you, these rain jackets are perfect. They are water and wind proof for cooler seasons, and they're lined with mesh to allow airflow during the hotter seasons. The New Englander Rain Jackets are also sleek and trim. Not being too heavy, yet not being too light weight, they're just the perfect mix of protection for any unscheduled rain storms.

Now for your chance to win a New Englander Rain Jacket in your size and choice of color from Charles River Apparel, just log into the Rafflecopter below (or make a new Rafflecopter account), and follow the directions for each entry. Please make sure to actually do what's required for each entry. If you just click enter and not do what it's asking, I'll know. If you are unsure how to do one, skip it and contact me. I can't stress this enough. I go back and check to make sure the winner actually did what was required. I will not let cheaters win. DON'T CHEAT. Meh.

Congrats Rachel B. for winning a Charles River Apparel rain jacket of your choice! A big thank you for everyone else who entered my giveaway!

This giveaway will end Saturday, July 18th, 2015. One winner will be picked at random via Rafflecopter. The winner will receive their choice of either a men's or women's New Englander Rain Jacket in their size and color of choice from Charles River Apparel.

My 1st Years

I have a soft spot for stuffed animals. So does Adrienne. And now that we have JB, he will, of course, be destined to love stuffed animals as well. A few years ago I bought Adrienne a tan Jellycat bunny.
She still sleeps with him every night.

Since JB was born, I've wanted to give him his own Jellycat bunny. One he could tote around by it's floppy ears and go on adventures with. So, when My 1st Years contacted me about reviewing one of their personalized items, I just knew I had to go with a monogrammed Jellycat bunny!

My 1st Years specializes in bringing you the sweetest baby and children's personalized gifts. They have gorgeous blankets, clothing, and keepsakes. And all of their items are sent in a gorgeous blue box with white bow. No wrapping required! 

Be sure to check out My 1st Years on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!
