{ giveaway! } + happy thursday!

happy thursday, guys! today's post is a little different from the norm--but before i get to why that is, i just need  to tell you that, as i type this, i am sitting on a very, very uncomfortable loveseat. a new sofa has been in the works for me for awhile, but time, money, and general laziness have prevented me from actually getting one. for awhile, i thought ikea might be the answer, but now i'm not so sure.

that's when i discovered csn stores and its glorious selection of sectional sofas on holy seating, options, batman: there are so many that i want for my apartment (two of my most favorites pictured above). when i finally get around to buying that sofa, i think i know where i'm headed.

but--and here's the good part--i have good news for those of you who are less lazy and more decisive than i am: the generous team at is giving me a free $60 giftcard--good on any of their 200-plus websites--to give to you! yay! 

here's how to enter:

 leave a comment on this post with your name and email address, telling me what you'd like to use
the giftcard for. (i'm partial to and, personally.)

comments will be closed at 9 p.m. on wednesday, june 2, and i'll be using random number generator to select the winner that night. i'll announce him or her first thing in the morning on thursday, june 3

good luck, everyone! please don't hesitate to email me if you have any questions. i'm so excited about my first giveaway!
