MNG by MANGO Mission

Words cannot begin to express my utter excitement at this very moment, this moment that I have been waiting for, so I could reveal to you the same news that sent me squealing and jumping up and down for 48 hours straight when I heard the news a few weeks ago.

I’ve been chosen by jcpenney and MNG by MANGO to participate in a style mission along with 9 other fabulous bloggers: style five looks based on the European cities of Paris, Milan, Amsterdam, London, and…Barcelona*. Every week, I’ll be given a style challenge involving one of the aforementioned cities. It will all culminate in a fabulous experience in Barcelona this October, and a fabulous event in New York City this November.

* My maternal grandfather is from Barcelona, and though I’ve always wanted to visit the city of my ancestors, I have never had the opportunity…until now!


MNG by MANGO is a collaborative line between one of my favorite Spanish brands, MANGO, and the American retail juggernaut jcpenney. I love it because the price points are right within my budget, but I still get classic, on-trend pieces that last for more than just a season. It’s got the quality, name, and design by the fabulous MANGO brand, but is produced for ladies like us who are budget-conscious. Love!

The Bloggers

Pretty Shiny Sparkly
Gala Darling
Where Did U Get That
What I Wore
The Budget Babe
Think Thru Fashion
Viva Fashion Blog
Extra Petite
Cheap Chicas

I can’t wait to share this mission’s style challenges with you, I hope you will root me on, give me advice & tips for styling looks based on these cities (especially since many of you are likely much more world-traveled than I am), and participate in the contest.

Yes….The Contest!

Here is the part that has me so excited I could do flips and cartwheels right now…if I were coordinated. Thanks to jcpenney and MNG by MANGO, one lucky & fabulous reader will WIN a TRIP to BARCELONA and join all 10 bloggers as we complete the MNG by MANGO mission!! How fabulous is that?? Who wants to win a free trip to Barcelona? All you have to do is click here to enter: YES I want to enter to win the trip to Barcelona! (P.S. you will need a passport!)

    That's amazing, and such a great opportunity for you! I wish the Barcelona thing didn't fall during the school year…I wanted to go there when I was in Spain, but we stuck to the north. :/ Still, it's an awesome thing here.
