Erin McDermott Jewelry Luxe Box Giveaway + Special Offer

Happy Monday! I have an amazing giveaway and special offer from my friend Erin McDermott to kick off the week. Erin just welcomed her first baby girl into this world, Coco.


Erin is basically super mom right now as she cares for a newborn and her business during the busiest time of the year. She has been so kind to extend a special offer and giveaway for her Luxe Box this holiday season to Peanut Butter Runner readers.


With the Luxe Box, you receive a special piece of jewelry delivered to your doorstep every month for 12 months. Each piece of jewelry is valued at $50.00-$150.00 and is made from the same stones and materials she uses for her entire collection.


Erin is offering you guys a special deal on the Luxe Box. The Luxe Box typically includes 12 pieces of jewelry over the course of 12 months but Erin is throwing in one extra piece so you’ll receive 13 pieces of beautiful jewelry with your order. A Luxe Box subscription is $300 so this equates to spending only $23 per piece! This is an awesome gift for yourself or someone you love!

If you’re unsure if you’ll like the pieces that are sent to you, you’re in luck. Erin has a special form on her website that allows you to indicate your preferences for favorite styles. If you are ordering the Luxe Box as a gift, you can complete a form to share the contact information of the recipient that will be receiving the Luxe Box.  Erin’s team will make sure that you (or that special person) loves each piece that arrives in the Luxe Box.

Now, about that giveaway…


Erin is giving one lucky winner a subscription to her Luxe Box in 2015!!! 

If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time you know I’m a huge fan of Erin McDermott Jewelry and wear it daily. I am so grateful to Erin for this incredible giveaway and special offer.

Erin is all about seeking, finding and spreading inspiration so to enter the Luxe Box giveaway, leave a comment telling us about something that inspires you. 

The giveaway will be open until Friday at midnight. I’ll pick a random winner. U.S. residents only.

To take advantage of the special Luxe Box bonus piece, leave a comment when you check out letting Erin know you’re a PBR reader and she’ll add that 13th piece to your box! 

Happy Holidays! Sending you tons of love and happiness! xoxo

    Something that inspires me…my grandpa. He is the most loving, humble, hilarious, good-natured, holy person I have ever met, and I wish each and every day that I could be half as incredible as he is. He has such a quiet love and respect for everyone, and he inspires me to be the best I can be. Not to mention that he is an awesome athlete who played college football and baseball, won the senior skiing Olympics, and biked across America on his 70th birthday. Honestly, just an unbelievable man.

I have two children and I instill in them the importance of being healthy and feeling good about yourself in all of the decisions that you make every waking moment no matter how big or how small the decision is.. It matters. Every day when they get on the bus I tell them remember do what feels good not what everybody else is necessarily doing. And just life in general inspires me.. I lead a simple life but I love every moment of it. Have a great day!!!

    These days my husband inspires me more and more than I ever imagined. I am 8 months pregnant and he is doing so much around the house in order for me to kick it on the couch after work. I’m so thankful and excited to see how helpful he’s been through this last bit of calm before an infant!

    My grandparents were married for over 60 years before my grandfather passed away a few weeks shy of his 98th birthday(5 yrs ago) As an adult I spent a weekend visit with my grandparents and got to see their relationship 1st hand. Well into their 90’s they still had fun and were madly in love. They finished their breakfast, meds, knee brace, and eye drop routine when im’d grandpa looked at my grandma with a twinkle in his eye and a smile in his face and said, “so Mary what does your imagination have planned for us today?” He definately lived every minute. And never lost their imagination with the realities we often face as adults. My grandma is doing well in her 90’s and misses him every day.

  • Rachel T. December 15, 2014, 9:32 pm

    My patients inspire me everyday! I hope that when I’m 104 I’ll be able to stand on one leg without holding onto something …this lady was seriously impressive! I think of my patients when I don’t feel like doing my workout. Will I be the lady hunched over with a walker or the one still able to get up and down from the floor and chasing great grandkids…

  • Allie H. December 16, 2014, 12:43 am

  • Jessica December 16, 2014, 7:57 am

  • Grace December 16, 2014, 9:11 am

    The youth that I work with through an Urban Nutrition Program inspire me. They’re grown up in low-income neighborhoods, often in broken families. They see violence every day. Their high school doesn’t even offer the classes they often need to get into college. But they are still eager to learn how to grow their own food and to cook healthful meals. By sharing their stories with me, they change my perspective and allow me to redefine success.

  • Helen December 16, 2014, 9:12 am

    My parents inspire me. My Dad runs 45 miles a week and weight trains while my Mom is a yoga instructor and walks 20 miles a week. They look like they’re in their 40s even though they’re really in their 60s!

  • Amanda December 16, 2014, 9:24 am

    My “Tuesday group” of health and wellness coaches inspire me. Seeing the dedication they have to impacting our community and making it a better place is always a motivation and an inspiration. They challenge me intellectually and physically to be the best person I can be and to chase after my dreams.

  • Jackie December 16, 2014, 10:14 am

    I’m inspired by the clients I work with- older adults over 60. Everyone of them has an inspirational and unique story to share!

  • Erin December 16, 2014, 10:18 am

    You and Erin inspire me! You both are following your passions and doing what you love everyday! Also, my best friend who teaches and serves selflessly in an inner-city school! Happy Holidays!

    Prioritizing happiness now inspires me! Live life for today.

  • lauren December 16, 2014, 11:07 am

  • Cari Stover December 16, 2014, 11:20 am

    My mom inspires me-since recently becoming a mother myself, I have a new appreciation for the sacrifices that she made for our family!

  • Amelia December 16, 2014, 12:30 pm

    My mom inspires me. She seemingly effortlessly balances managing her own successful practice, staying fit and active, volunteering for numerous events in our town, cooking amazing dinners, and yet always makes time for family and stops to appreciate the little things like a beautiful sunrise.

  • Kristin December 16, 2014, 12:37 pm

    I’m a special education teacher and my students inspire me daily!

  • April December 16, 2014, 12:54 pm

    I’m inspired by those who push themselves thru difficulties to better their lives. Hearing those stories about those who struggle with illness, injury, etc. is proof that we can all do so much more if we challenge ourselves and push to be our best self.

  • Meggie December 16, 2014, 12:57 pm

    Different people inspire me every day but currently I have been inspired by Bethany Hamilton. This may sound silly but I am a huge amazing race fan and this season I have never been so captivated by a team in my life. Bethany is amazing and it just shows what the human body is capable of. I think her spirit and positive attitude about life is contiguous. I have recently done more research on her and am inspired by all the programs she is involved in and all the people she has touched with her story. Even though I don’t know her personally, her story and positive attitude have given me motivation and courage to keep pushing in pursuit of my dreams. The human body is capable of anything you want it to be capable of! ( Thank you for offering this wonderful give away. The jewelry is beautiful and I am a huge fan of your blog.)

    My clients inspire me on a daily basis; whether someone thriving after an abusive situation, someone showing strength to challenge unhealthy eating disorder behaviors that are often encouraged by society, someone returning to work after a terrible accident and months of therapy, or someone showing hope and faith when they are battling cancer. My clients inspire me daily to be a better person, to take care of my body, to be grateful for what I do have, to remain optimistic and hopeful, to be a better person, to constantly strive and never get up. While my title may be psychologist, I grow, benefit, and learn every day from them.
