CitrusMangos Wrap Bracelet Give Away and the ASJ Winner!

CitrusMangos Wrap Bracelet Give Away and the ASJ Winner!

Before I tell you about my next holiday give away featuring another small business owner, I want to announce who won the Art Studio Jewelry earrings.

Sarah Harper Scott! 

Congratulations, Sarah! Your baubles are wrapped and ready to be popped into the post as soon as I receive your address. Just email it to me when you have a moment.

And a big “Thank You!” to April for this wonderful give away. She is very close to making it to 100 likes…and when she gets there, she’s giving away another pair of earrings!

Continuing with my mission to get us all to buy more gifts and items for themselves from small business people rather than big box, chain, or department stores, I am featuring another small business owner, located here in California, who makes and sells hip, colorful and stylish five-wrap bracelets.

Last summer, my stepdaughter and I spent several days in Lake Tahoe, just the two of us. While shopping in the charming town of Truckee, we came across dozens of beautiful beaded wrap bracelets laying across the counter at a high-end boutique. 

Tori and I both went crazy for them and decided to pick out two that we would share.

Tori chose this one, “Luxurious Party Wrap”:

And I selected this blue and green number:

The following day, we had lunch, then shopped around Tahoe City. We walked into another women’s fashion boutique and lo and behold, the wrap bracelets were there too! Turns out, it was the same shop, just different locations.

Somehow, we rationalized buying another three!

A “Beautiful Sunrise Wrap Chan Luu Style” wrap bracelet,

a “Lovely Pastel Chan Luu Style”,

and a “Deep Colorful Rich Wrap Chan Luu Style” with a vibrant dash of red.

Tori and I share the five of them and boy, do we wear them….and often!

When I returned home late August, I contacted the owner and artist, Lize, who makes these gorgeous, vibrant and modern bracelets. I told her how much I love her creations and asked if she’d be willing to give one away during the holidays to a reader. She agreed!

The winner may choose any wrap bracelet from her Etsy shop. Lize will ship anywhere in the world so it’s open to all readers.

I wouldn’t mind seeing this under my Christmas tree! 

Here’s how to enter: 

Each item below is worth one entry. Choose to do as many as you like up to SIX entries max:

1) Leave me a comment below telling me you’d like to be entered {one entry}

2) “Like” The Rich Life (on a budget) on Facebook {one entry}

4) Add CitrusMangos to your Esty “Favorites” – lower left corner under “actions” {one entry}

6) Tweet about this give away {one entry}

Please be sure to tell me which of these six you have done in your comment. I want to make sure I count each and every entry! 

Winner will be announced next Wednesday, December 12th.

    These bracelets are beautiful! I would love to win – I’m having jaw surgery on December 12th, and will be confined to home for at least two weeks afterwards due to the heaavy duty pain medicine I’ll be on. Winning would be another bright spot for – the first bright spot is being able to stay home with my kitties for a while! 🙂

  12. December 6, 2012 / 4:03 am

    Oh…it’s so hard to pick out a favorite! It would be either the natural bright chan luu, or the soft pink wrap….

  13. December 6, 2012 / 4:50 am

    Thank you so much for sharing about these bracelets…I love them. I go to Tahoe each summer and look around the shops but have never seen these bracelets.
    I “liked” your FB page, added CitrusMango on the Etsy site and my favorite (this was tough) wrap was the Deep Wine Wrap with the Mother of Pearl a close second.
    Thanks for the giveaway…what a Christmas treat this would be!

  14. December 6, 2012 / 5:28 am


    I narrowed it down to three that are my favorite, but I will say the Deep and Colorful Rich Wrap for the give away. I’m hoping maybe to see one under the tree too…I told my daughter about them! 🙂


  15. December 6, 2012 / 6:40 am

    Yes please, enter me as well!

  16. December 6, 2012 / 7:08 am

    Fantastic!!! Beautiful bracelets!!!

    Okay… Here are my entries:
    #1 I’d like to be entered in this contest
    #2 I “Favorited” CitrusMango on Etsy(as mamamoxie)
    #3 My favorite bracelet in her shop is “Mixed Stone and Sterling plated nugget wrap”… Luscious!
    #4 I “Liked” The Rich Life (on a budget) on Facebook… which is weird because I thought I’d already done that a long time ago. Hmmm… But, hey, I was #200!
    #5 I “Shared” the giveaway on FB

    Can’t get into my (much ignored) Twitter account because I can’t seem to remember my user name OR which email address I used to sign up. Oh well, that’s still 5 entries out of a possible 6!

    Now to figure out whether I can justify purchasing another Christmas gift for myself to take advantage of the 20% off coupon at CitrusMango… But I just upgraded my camera and splurged on some yummy yarn!

    (Sorry if this gets posted twice – I got some sort of error message the first time.)

  17. December 6, 2012 / 12:26 pm

    Very pretty. I think I will try for this giveaway. Thus, my comment. And I will favorite her shop on Etsy.

    Thank you, Adrienne! xo

    I actually like four styles.

    The Turquoise Classy wrap
    The Turpuoise Mix wrap which could be my favorite, and I like the Teal and Purple Gorgeous Wrap. I also think the Luxurious Party Wrap is really nice, too.

    I also like the freshwater pearl ones. I guess I like a lot of them.

    I may order one for my niece, but she may be a little young still.

    Hi, I checked out the citrus mangos etsy shop and totally fell in love with most of the wraps! They are wonderfully beautiful and I can understand how you ended up buying 5. I wouldn’t be able to resist either. However my ultimate favorite would be the Fresh Lime Wrap Bracelet Chan Luu Style.
    Thanks again for the contest!
