Ooh La Frou Frou! (And a giveaway!)

I bet you're wondering about that title, right? Doesn't it just scream girly goodness? I am so excited for this post today I just can't stand it!

Last week I was tweeting away when I saw a little Friday Follow love for 'ooh la frou frou.' Clearly I was intrigued, what an adorable name! I must check it out! Upon doing so I found the most charming company.

I would like to introduce you to
"Ooh La Frou Frou: Glamorous Cards for Glamorous Girls"

I am seriously head-over-heels in love with everything that designer Sandy has created! She has beautifully told the story of eight glamorous girlfriends, each with a little story of their own, through her gorgeous cards!

I am such a kid at heart, I love story books and tales of fantasy and romance, as do many of us, I think! So, when I found this darling company I just couldn't get enough!

Let's meet the girls, shall we? I've picked some of my blog ladies that remind me of the characters.


She's the logo girl with Audrey Hepburn style.
(My Trishy absolutely!)

Charming blonde accompanied by her adorable poodle, Olive.
(Rasha would definitely be Hope!)

Auburn-haired vixen with a passion for baking.
(I believe this one would be my Summer!)

Sassy California girl who brings sunshine to the group.
She was the first of the ladies to post on the blog! You can click here to browse some of her favorite swimwear finds!
(This would certainly be Miss Pink Champagne!)

Lover of all things French and fabulous.
(Miss Jen would be perfect as Aimee!)

Interior designer with an eye for all things glamorous.
(I believe Lacey would be a fantastic Violet!)

Fashion model surrounded by paparazzi and haute couture.
(New hot mama Kristen could certainly be Cherie!)

Sweet, sophisticated southern lady.
(My goodness, could this one be me? I believe so!)

Head on over to the Ooh La Frou Frou Blog for the full story on these lovely ladies and to learn more about the company!


What do you think so far? Pretty fabulous, right? I just want to live inside this story that Sandy has illustrated! Well, you haven't even seen her adorable card creations! The cuteness is seriously too much!

Now here is the best part, my lovies! Sweet Sandy has offered three of her beautiful cards to one of my readers!

If you visit her site, your options are found under the 'cards' tab. Sandy is no longer doing custom orders, as she's trying to put her heart and soul into the Ooh La Frou Frou Collection.

She does all the designing herself and puts the most beautiful details on the cards, complete with girly shimmer!


Here's how to enter:

1. Leave a comment saying you follow me! This is a must!

2. Leave a comment saying you follow the 'Ooh La Frou Frou' blog! (I will be checking!)

The giveaway will be open until Tuesday, August 31 at midnight eastern time. I will announce the winner on Wednesday morning!

Good luck, everyone!

And thanks again to Miss Sandy for letting me do this feature and sponsoring this fantastic giveaway! You're the sweetest, lady!
