sponsor love: interview and GIVEAWAY from Erika of Rouge and Whimsy!!!

today i bring you one of the sweetest sponsors ever and has easily become a friend over twitter. plus she and i share a love for poppies and headbands - and get this, mango flavored smoothies! (score!) you will find her shop is colorful, friendly and the perfect touch to any spring outfit!
meet erika.


tell us about your shop.
Rouge + Whimsy is filled with creative custom accessories meant to brighten up any moment-- a wedding day, birthday or perhaps an average Wednesday morning. My items are a blend of vintage florals and feather hippie chic. I take pleasure in seeing what my hands create and sharing it with others. :)
  
what is your idea of the perfect spring day?
No work! My husband and I are home all day. We wake up around 8 a.m. and sip coffee on our deck. Later, we take the dog to the park, and go for a leisurely walk. I make a delicious fruit smoothie and bake cookies, and perhaps squeeze a trip into the fabric or thrift store. ;) Later friends come over to our house for happy hour drinks and chips, salsa and guac. That night we watch a movie (while I craft) and laugh at our dog's antics. perfect, right?

what is your go-to outfit?
Skinny jeans from Forever21 ($12 people!!), a comfy tee and cardigan, printed scarf, brown flat boots. My messy red hair, flower stud earrings and my freckles. 

favorite smoothie flavor 
Mango!

today you have the chance to rock one of these two lovely Rouge and Whimsy products made especially for this Much Love, illy giveaway!! (and here's a secret: these items are not even listed in Erika's shop yet!!)
