Excitement: New Domain… and a GIVEAWAY!

January 25, 2011 by SavvyInTheCity

A lot of exciting things going on around here!

I've moved to a new domain — and I'm doing several giveaways in the coming weeks to celebrate!

I picked the name of my last blog (A Life Fulfilled: Atlanta) on a whim and since decided that 1) it would be helpful to have a shorter and catchier domain 2) I could rename my blog something that better described my content. Having "Atlanta" in the name may have deterred non Atlantans from reading — and after all, only about a third of my posts are Atlanta centric. Savvy in the City will still be a place for Atlanta finds (restaurants, consignment stores, thrift stores and more), smart places to shop online, closet remixing and inspiration cool bloggers I've found on the interwebs.

Now let's get to the good stuff!

CSN Stores is giving away a $100 gift certificate to celebrate my move to the new domain. (CSN Stores is comprised of over 250 specialized online stores that offer a wide variety of home goods including tools, office furniture, bedding, lighting and more.) 

Do you ever visit luggage stores only to find a limited selection of overpriced rolling bags and overnight bags? CSN Stores has a great selection — my search for suitcase yielded nearly 2,000 results, like these: 

(Zebra Print Hard-case Carry-on – $99. Way fun!)

This London Fog 25-inch Suitcase speaks to the classic/traditional side of me. And it's expandable! $110.

Luggage is just the tip of the iceberg. I've also been checking out fan gear, home decor, shoes and more:

This Tiffany-style lamp would look great in our basement (when it's finished… one day…). $130. Go Packers!

Because we still have a few "naked" walls in our house, I'm eyeballing this sunburst mirror:

Ashton Sutton Sunburst Mirror. $65.75

I'm regretting my decision to get cheap steak knives… so I may buy these reasonably priced Henkel ones:

Under $30 for a set of 8!

To enter the giveaway, simply comment on this post with how you would spend your CSN Stores gift certificate and your e-mail address (so I can contact the winner). I will randomly draw a comment on Super Bowl Sunday (February 6) at 10pm. I will e-mail the winner directly with a promo code. Good luck!

p.s. I lost some formatting and tags in my old posts when I transferred over to the new site. So, please pardon the progress!

    I give 2 thumbs up for CSN's luggage. Bought a nice roller myself not too long ago and I LOVE IT! I think I'd opt for a matching carry-on next.
    Liking the new blog. Excited to see what develops over here!

  2. Vica says:

    I would spend the gift card on something for our house. Still needing lamps, rugs accessories and pretty much anything you can think of.

  3. Moeko says:

    I would buy a rug for our new house :)

  4. I love the TIffany-style lamp.  Is there a way I can get  a Philadelphia Eagles lamp like that! Gimme the scoop! **SMOOCHES POOCHES**

  5. KrisLee says:

    Excited to see the new changes!  I would put the gift card towards a Le Creuset Dutch Oven. I've been dreaming about one for soooo long.

  6. Jill Otwell says:

    Hey! I love this!  I would RUN out and get the zebra luggage. I have my own business and this would fit right in!!!

  7. Veronica says:

    The new blog looks great :) I've been dying to get a pressure cooker.  It would be so useful in my kitchen!

  8. Paul Beck says:

    Love it Lana! We need a thirfting day sometime soon!

  9. Lou Childs says:

    Really love the new site, Katy! Congratulations! I would spend the gift certificate on something for the kitchen for my wonderful husband! As you know, the man should have been a chef, as it is hard to beat the flavor and presentations of the variety of dishes he prepares! He could use new cookware or cutlery – would make a wonderful anniversary present in April! He rarely buys for himself – and would be thrilled with the surprise.
    Fingers crossed!

  10. Megan says:

    In my imaginary world where I have a back yard and the weather is warm, I am dreaming of patio furniture. Not too early to start dreaming about the house and warm weather later this year! 

  11. Dawn Gahan says:

    Congrats, Katy!
    Would love to be entered into your giveaway! And there's a bar stool on the site that would be perfect for my new craft table!!

  12. Julia says:

    I would splurge and spend every last cent and a bunch of my own on Le Creuset.  I wouldl ove to replace all my pots and pans with that Fench cast iron.
    Love the new website

  13. Tambryn says:

    I would love to get some new luggage.  Mine is tired, broken, and all black.  Highest on the list would be a nice new carry on that has wheels.  Travelling isn't nearly as much fun when you're haulling a duffel bag through the airport!

  14. Claire says:

    I love your new site. Leave it up to you to be so creative. I would love to win your new giveaway.
    Congratulations on your new blog….I know how much you enjoy writing and expressing yourself.
    My best wishes.

  15. Chiara says:

    Hey Hun!! Congrats on the new domain.  I'm still looking for a nice wine rack for my sunroom and CSN def has what I'm looking for.  So…. Pick me! Pick me!!
    Miss you,

  16. Budget says:

    Oh this great, thanks for letting me know about the giveaway, I will tweet it to my followers tomorrow.  I so need some new luggage bad.  So I would use t he $100 toward a nice set  of sturdy luggage which I sorely need.

  17. domestic diva says:

    I'd get a mango wood utensil holder.

  18. kari says:

    I'd get a plan toys rail set for my little one.

  19. Micki says:

    Congrats on the move, Katy! How would I spend it…geez…lamps, art, bedding for the new digs. Or maybe just a treat for myself!

  20. Donna B. says:

    I love this wall clock – I'd use it towards this.

  25. Barb says:

    Hey Katy!  I love the new blog name.  I think that I would use the $100 towards a single serve coffee maker!  Good luck with the new blog!  Go Steelers – sorry :-) 

  26. Bianca says:

    I would get the euro mounted spice rack in satin nickel or maybe a kitchen island since my kitchen is teeny tiny.  Last year I felt like my appliances were rolling their eyes every time I walked in so I resolved to change that this year.
