It's the end of the summer, so to cure the end-of-beach-season blues, we're offering a fun giveaway. We have two turquoise 100 Good Wishes necklaces from Dogeared Jewels to give away. The first step is to like us on Facebook. We'll issue a challenge to our fans later today; the first two answer get the prize! [Dogeared, Facebook]
