CLOSED | Giveaway + Announcement!

aria-photo-4 (2)

Hey you guys! It’s time for the greatly-anticipated 150 followers giveaway!

I had a marvelous time finding fun things for it, and I can’t wait to show you! But first, I have an announcement to make…

I’m changing the name of my blog! You see, because of my marvelous SEO (juuuust kidding) I seem to be coming up when anyone searches for my business on Google, and since this isn’t a professional blog anymore, I’d much rather not have it come up. So since “Aria Photo” is in my blog name, I figured it would help to change the name. But I have one little problem…unfortunately, I can’t come up with anything!

One of the things you can do to gain entries in the giveaway is to put in a blog name that you think suits me! I know it will be hard because my aesthetic is so varied – in fact, my name is the best bet, but I can’t really use that now. But I have no doubt that y’all will come up with some stellar blog names and I can’t wait to see them!

Now…the giveaway! I wanted to do a blue theme because that’s very “aria”, but I had a hard time finding blue things. So instead I found purple things! I felt this giveaway fit the aesthetic of my blog since I’m always using purple backgrounds and such. Here’s what I’m giving away!


aria-photo-10 aria-photo-11

Firefly Mini Clip String Lights – Aren’t these adorable? It’s ten feet long and perfect for displaying pictures and cards (and ATCs and other things)! You can see a similar concept here, which Allison did in her studio. :)


Made-in-Italy Macarons! – These are almond with a passion fruit cream flavor (which I LOOOVE). Unfortunately they’re not organic, but they’re so cute (perfect for flat lays) and look absolutely delicious.)


Castelbel Provence Lavender Soap – THIS SMELLS SO GOOD, GUYS! Lavender is definitely my scent and I love scented soaps. And this is a nice big one. :)


Rae Dunn Notebooks – I love this minimalist set of notebooks! Two of them are lined and one isn’t – perfect for a bullet journal or sketching/drawing, like the title.


Kelly Creates Dream Pens – Of course you need pens to go with notebooks! These come in 10 different pretty colors and have a fine end and a large end. I had a hard time keeping myself from opening them and trying them out. XD


My Minerals Lip Gloss in Orchid – Isn’t this a pretty lip gloss color? I love My Minerals’ lip glosses because they’re nicely pigmented and stay on really well!

A handmade surprise item – I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet for this, but I’m probably going to letter or paint something. 😉 You’ll find out when you get it.

Also, I have a second-place prize of a $20 Amazon gift card! And just so you know, this giveaway is only open to US residents, BUT if you win first-place and you’re international, I’ll switch you with the second-place winner so you can get the gift card. :)

The giveaway is over on April 7th, so hurry up and enter now!

And that’s it! What do you think of the giveaway? Here’s where you can enter with several options for gaining more entries. I can’t wait to see your blog name ideas!

    You’re right… it is a bit hard to think of a name! I was thinking of maybe a play on words using your name or photography or something, but decided to keep it simple and suggested “Life With Aria.”

    I tried to fill out the blog name part of the entry form, but something strange happened, so… I don’t know what you might find in there. XD Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS on 150 followers!! You deserve each and every one of them! This is a wonderful giveaway. The only blog name I could think of is Artistically Aria. I TRIED.

    Thank you for this great giveaway! I came up with a few different name ideas, none of which seem to be especially original, but maybe they can give you inspiration for a different name. Another idea I had was Airy Aesthetics (because those are two words that I think fit your blog perfectly), but it kind of sounds like a interior design brand. Anyway, I hope you come up with a great new name!

    I made such a long comment in the “name my blog” but in essence I was thinking something to do with “air” cos it’d be a play on your name XDD I really like your blog name right now though – and aria already has double meaning !! All those giveaway items look so good but sadly I live in Canada XDD

    I really like the “Be in the light” t-shirt you have as you picture and you could use it in your blog name. “Photography in the light” is already taken (it’s to good of a name to not be taken), but you could try something like “”, “lifestyleinthelight”, or “”, or “”. If live where there are lots of hills you could try a play on words with ‘city on a hill’. If you really like birds, you could try doing as Jo suggested, a play on your name like “” or “” or “” I could come up with a lot of blog names…’s generally more of a problem than a good thing. Enjoy brainstorming! Exciting giveaway!
