Today is special. I’m stretching the boundaries of my tagline:
Let’s gossip and share on all things that help us feel pretty… inside and out.
I typically post and share on beauty/skincare that “help us feel pretty,” but not today. Today, I want to share a “compliment” with you that can “help us feel pretty” too! Let me explain~
I was browsing through photos on Instagram when I randomly came across this gorgeous ring.
I found out that the husband and wife duo are full time teachers, have set up a scholarship fund and donate 5% of their sales to the fund! I have a special place in my heart for education, and was thrilled to see a couple follow their dreams of starting a small business AND giving back to the community. Also, the couple is so cute… read Melissa and Mike’s explanation of how compliment came to be.
“one of the best things about being married to Mike is how romantic he is. He surprises me with little notes and ‘thank-you-for-being-a-rad-wife’ gifts.” This was the inspiration behind their business idea. Mike adds, “we wanted to not only sell a cool product, but also to have a reason WHY. We both believe in making people feel good with our words. That’s where the note inside each box comes into play. Women need to know how valued they are. Compliment seeks to make women feel beautiful, inside AND out.” (full story here)
Did you read the last sentence? “Compliment seeks to make women feel beautiful, inside and out.” Talk about being in sync! Pretty Gossip’s tagline is the same sentiment: “Let’s gossip and share on all things that help us feel pretty… inside and out.” Also gotta mention my sign off for almost every post: “Until next time, stay pretty… inside and out.”
After some friendly comments on Instagram, Melissa and I got in touch via email and we hit it off. Then one day… I received a compliment from Melissa. ♥
The compliment was as sweet as can be and the ring was STUNNING. It was the ring from the original Instagram photo I had obsessed over! Seriously… are you kidding me?! Look at this ring! I can’t keep my eyes off it and apparently, others can’t either. I’ve received so many compliments on it, it’s ridiculous.
So here’s the great news! Compliment has generously agreed to do a giveaway for Pretty Gossip readers! Yipee~ I love being able to share my favorites with my readers, so I couldn’t be happier. ♥

Isn’t this giveaway fun?! The winner not only gets a compliment + ring for themselves, but they can send a compliment + ring to someone special! When Melissa and I were brainstorming about this giveaway, we thought it would make a perfect Mother’s Day gift, which btw is right around the corner, and yes… Melissa will take care of the shipping and make sure you and your mom have the rings by Mother’s Day.
If not for your mom, this is a great gift for any special woman in your life that deserves a compliment and a beautiful ring to remind them that you think that they’re AWESOME… maybe a loving sister, a loyal friend, a friendly neighbor, or even an inspiring teacher like Melissa!
I’m seriously in love with this giveaway and I’m so happy to have connected with Melissa (thank you Instagram!).
