Hello, Dear Readers!

UPDATE: Congratulations to @k8skye for winning our Chic Traveler Giveaway – what a lucky lady and thank you so much for following!


I’ve got something super-special for you today – the chance to win this amazing travel set! That’s right – I’ve teamed up with a group of wonderful travel bloggers on Instagram to bring one lucky winner these Layla leather headphones by FRENDS, a $250 Encircled travel fashion gift card and her (or his) choice of one Smart Suitcase by Raden. A few thoughts on the items: 

  • These FRENDS headphones aren’t just for blocking out sound and turning up the tunes on the plane, they are an accessory to pair with your outfit! I love the rose gold in this giveaway, and I also love this oil slick pair.
  • Encircled makes stylish travel clothes for women that are ethically made (in Canada) and uber-packable and light for your jet-setting needs. I love this dress and this tee for a weekend getaway.
  • I daydream about owning a Raden suitcase one day! These are not only beautiful, they are extremely durable and lightweight. Read more about this set on their site: here.

Now onto the giveaway details. This is a loop giveaway, which means you need to complete steps in a sequence on each blogger’s IG account, starting with mine:

  • Begins at 9:00pm Eastern, Tuesday, July 12th –> Closes at 9:00pm Eastern, Friday, July 15th. Winner will be announced Sunday, July 17th at 9:00pm Eastern.
  • Head to my Instagram account (@bellemeetsworld) starting tonight at 9:00pm Eastern and look for the above photo. 
  • In the caption you’ll see instructions for what to do:
    • Like the photo
    • Follow @bellemeetsworld on IG
    • Then follow my direction to head to the next blogger’s IG account where you’ll need to complete the same steps (like photo, follow her, head to the next)…
    • And so on to each blogger host in the loop until you get back to me. Then you’ve completed the loop and are officially entered. It’s pretty cool, actually!
    • Bonus entry: like my last 5 photos for an extra chance to win.

Below is some fine print in case you have additional questions. Good luck and I hope one of you wins!
