Last week, I shared a project I’d done with my pal Laura and my friends over at Minnetonka called ‘One Style, Two Ways,’ both here on the blogand over on Minnetonka’s site. Minnetonka is one of my absolute favorite companies, and it’s always such a pleasure to get to team up with them. I own more Minnetonka shoes than probably all of my other shoes combined. They’re just that great. And now one lucky Bubby and Bean reader is going to get to pick out a pair of Minnetonkas of her/his own – any pair of shoes/moccasins/boots/wedges/etc.!
This giveaway will run through October 29th and is open to Bubby and Bean readers with a U.S. shipping address. And don’t forget, Minnetonka is having a contest of their own! This month, head over to Instagram and show how you make your Minnetonka shoes your own personal style with the tag #MyMinnetonka, for the chance to appear in their gallery on minnetonkamoccasin.com. Plus, each Monday through November 3rd, a winner will be selected and awarded a new pair of Minnetonka moccs and a $ 250 gift card! More details on their contest are available right here. Entering their contest is also one of the entries you can choose for this giveaway (worth 5 points!), so it’s a win-win. Good luck!
