Introducing . . . Everyday Icing {Giveaway}

THE WINNER HAS BEEN DRAWN AND EMAILED. THANKS FOR ENTERING!

There is a new phenomenon in mom owned businesses: Facebook Shops! Who knew, right?

I was recently contacted by an old friend, the sweet Kimba of A Soft Place to Land, and she wanted to tell me about her new venture. It’s called Everyday Icing, and she sells fashion jewelry directly on Facebook. She describes direct sales on Facebook as a fun way to combine social media and shopping — and you know how much I love both of those.

I was curious to see what kinds of products she has in her shop so I clicked over and fell instantly in love with all the pretty accessories. Accessorizing is something I struggle with, but I’m trying to do better so I love how she groups things that work well together.

Here are a few examples of the pretty wares you can find at Everyday Icing!

This nautical collection is adorable.

And I’m totally in love with all of these pieces from the Southwest jewelry collection.

I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now . . . oooops, sorry. Carry on!

Their sales take place every Monday at 9PM EST on their facebook page: www.facebook.com/everydayicingauctions, and some weeks they have special themed sales on Thursday too . . . things like Scarf-A-Palooza and Nautical Night. And to make it even more awesome, 10% of their profits go directly to Compassion International. Compassion is an organization dear to my heart because for six years, we have been sponsoring a child in Uganda named Samuel. He is 14 years old now, and he and my 13-year-old son write back and forth regularly. I have always been impressed with Compassion, and I love knowing that a portion of my purchases are going to such a worthy organization.

Kimba sent me a few pieces to sample, and I’ve already been enjoying trying them out. I love how these pieces work together — the Filigree Button Earrings, Filigree Tag Necklace and Enamel Bracelet are all from Everyday Icing.

This blue Double Strand Candy Necklace is super fun. It would look good with so many things. I wore it with this pale yellow sweater and white shorts, but it would look fabulous on white or black too.

And I’m LOVING this blue-and-white striped infinity scarf! The colors are so fresh — perfect for summer. You might recognize the Bubble Bracelet from my last Daily Mom Style post. And once again, that white-and-gold enamel bangle is also from Everyday Icing. It seems to go with everything!

Each week Everyday Icing offers up 20-30 different items for a fixed price (usually between $12-$25) and shipping is usually FREE! They post pictures of the items for sale along with a desciption, price and the quantity that they have. There are limited quantities of each item so when they’re gone, they’re gone.

To make a purchase, you “like” their facebook page and then register directly on that page. Then, all you have to do to bid is simply comment “SOLD” on the item that you want to purchase. There’s a tab on their facebook page called How to Bid that explains exactly how shopping on facebook works, or this graphic sums it up rather nicely.

    I love the blue striped infinity scarf. Infinity scarves have scared me because I always thought they’d be so bulky on me. I finally bought one on clearance because I figured at $2.50 it was worth a shot and I love it. So I can’t wait to add more to my collection. :-)

    I love the blue watch, but I also really fond of that starfish bracelet! What a great prize pack to give away! Happy Friday!

  3. says

    I don’t think there is one thing on this site that I wouldn’t wear! All of the pieces in the package are wonderful and there is a chevron bracelet on her facebook page that might have to become mine too…

    I love the Filigree Tag Necklace, and just liked Everyday Icing on Facebook. I find their “sales” an interesting business model- certainly manageable as side-gig. (I also like their honor system of marking something sold!)

  5. Shannon says

    I would love to win–this past year I’ve started getting onto accessories and I’d love to build my collection! My favorite is the turquoise watch (I need a new watch and that is perfect!). Thanks!

  6. says

    I liked Everday Icing. There are a couple of longish turquoise necklaces that I would love. I like everything that you picked out to model, too. You are my Daily Mom Style icon:)

  7. Jess says

    The Aqua Striped Infinity Scarf listed in the quick sale is darling… as is that Filigree Tag Necklace! I’m thrilled to learn about them. Thanks for pointing us in their direction.

  8. Stephanie says

    I LOVE the double strand candy necklace! It’s so fun! =) ….but I could buy it ALL ;p

  9. tiffany h. says

    I’ve never heard of a facebook shop. Interesting. I agree with you, the nautical collection is adorable. I love the gold starfish bracelet. The set you’re giving away is amazing! I love everything in it–especially the silver starfish bracelet! Thanks for the into to the new shop.

  10. says

    I was so excited that I not only liked the page, I bought 3 things – the bow pave wrap bracelet, square jewel necklace, and red carpet multi strand necklace. Yay!

  11. S. says

    The scarf! I have lots of winter scarves, but I am building up my collection of summery scarves, and this one would be perfect! :)

  12. Rachel says

    Long Gemstone Necklace in blue and green is my favorite, but I like your prize pack, too!

  13. DeAnn says

    Oh boy, this is dangerous! I really love the silver starfish bracelet. Anything that reminds me of the beach!!! (By the way…your arms look really toned. ;) )

  14. Kelly D says

    I like Everyday Icing on Facebook (Kelly D Saver) and my favorite is the Silver Starfish Charm Bracelet

  15. michele boreham says

    I love it all!, I love the color combo of blue + white but if I have to choose one it would be the striped infinity scarf.

  16. Lisa says

    Liked on FB -LOVED the earrings! Very cute styles for everyday wear!
    Thanks for sharing!

  17. Michelle says

    Wow – the accessories are beautiful and reasonably priced! I liked the page, and my favorite piece is a tie between the infinity scarf and the starfish bracelet. Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. Susan says

    Your friend has cute stuff. She should know that all the shops and ads on FB are sooooo annoying and this is coming from someone who has a high tolerance for that stuff.

  19. says

    I love the starfish bracelet. Anything beachy! Perfect for summer vacations! Thanks for introducing this great company. I liked their Facebook page.

  20. Rachel says

    I love the blue infinity scarf and the matching watch! I’d love to win them – they’d be a great addition to my wardrobe. Thanks for giving them away! (also, I’ve got a calendar reminder up to remind me to look for new auctions tomorrow night…) :)

  21. says

    Liked Everyday Icing on Facebook. I thought this post was fascinating. I did not know about these Facebook shops at all. As to the bling? Love the pave earrings. And the scarf. Must I really choose? Okay, the starfish charm bracelet, then. I think. Sigh. Bling iis my love language.

  22. Andrea Darst says

    I’ve liked Everyday Icing on Facebook for some time…ordered from them & love them! I really like the starfish bracelet for a surprise for my daughter – she’d absolutely love it!

  23. Beth says

    I like the blue watch. I’ve been thinking I need to get a watch and that color would be great for spring and summer!

  24. Bonnie Sypolt says

    I love the starfish bracelet :) I am going to Puerto Rico next month and it would be perfect to wear!
