Something Pretty Survey + A Giveaway!


Something Pretty celebrated its SIXTH birthday in December, and has been a home to so many of my memories and favorite things during these years. There’s no question that this blog means a lot to me, and it means even more that you’re here to follow along! So seriously, thank you :) But, a lot has happened since I was just a college student and a blogger–I’m now a wife and new mom, and I have a (formerly full-time, now part-time) job that I love. This week marks a brand new season, because it’s my first week of work after maternity leave, and if there’s one thing I know for sure, it’s that learning how to be a good mom while also working hard and still keeping up Something Pretty is going to be a process. That’s why, 1. I’m grateful for your grace and hope you’ll continue checking in, even if I don’t always have two posts a week up, and 2. I’d love your help! With time more precious than ever, I want to make absolutely sure that I’m sharing content that I’m passionate about AND that you’re interested in.

That said, I’d love for you to take the first ever Something Pretty Survey below! Your time is super valuable, so I kept it short, but your feedback would mean the world to me, and will certainly help shape my content moving forward. As a thank you, if you leave a comment on this post to let me know you took the survey, you’ll be entered to win a $25 J. Crew gift card!

Create your own user feedback survey

The survey will be open for one week, and a winner will be emailed on Friday, January 13. I can’t wait to hear from you!
