OhMyVera's Third Blogiversary

We are celebrating OhMyVera's third blogiversary today!  Three years ago today I decided that I was going to write a blog.  The blog post wasn't very exciting...I pretty just declared that I was going to start writing a blog about Vera Bradley.  The next day I got started and wrote a post about the first time I saw a Vera Bradley bag.  You can see that post by clicking here.  I probably say this every year, but I never would have guessed that I would still be writing this blog today.  I really enjoy being able to connect with other Vera Bradley fans whether that is here on the blog, through social media like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, or even in person when we run into each other at a store. 

To celebrate I am giving away a Medium Cosmetic in Heather (a Fall 2013 color) and a Vera Bradley journal that was made in honor of the 100th Anniversary of Vera Bradley's birthday.

  22. I have a backpack with an older pattern in red. It must be about 11 year old or so. It has the thicker straps and it had a drawstring and a snap for security. I so wish they had one like that now. I love it. The only issue is that the snap is so falling off --I have used it that much.

  70. Congratulations on your blogiversary! I love the sneak peaks. I also like the fact that when you post photos of your purchases, you include lots of good views; even more than there are on verabradley.com.

    Would you please share my view on some of the recent changes to the handbag selections? As a vegan, I know there are a lot of others that share my thoughts. The Frame Bag, my favorite style after Alice was discontinued, is now also also phased out as a result of being replaced by the Barbara frame bag, which is made from leather. I would really have loved to have purchased a structured bad in the new spring colors, but now can only hope that a new style will come out in the future.

I love when you review pieces and I often read your reviews before purchasing items that I am considering. My favorite piece has to be my all in one wristlet. Cupcakes Pink was my favorite pattern, but I'm currently carrying a mix of Paisley Meets Plaid and Go Wild. Would really love to sport a Heather Cosmetic ;)
