Welcome to our new site lovelies!

Welcome to the new and improved BonBon Rose Girls! We would like to take a moment to thank all of you lovely readers who have followed us over to our new digs. Keep in mind that we’re still a bit of a work in progress, but we hope you love the new site as much as we do! And we also hope that you’ll update your blog rolls with our new URL and re-follow us here if you followed us over at Blogger! If you subscribe to our feed you don’t need to re-subscribe…it transferred over here.

Thanks to the gorgeous genius behind Livit, Luvit, we have been able to make the WordPress move rather painlessly. Well, it was painless for us anyway. I’m sure she’s ready to be rid of our inane questions. HA! How about a round of applause for our lovely web guru!

So, as you can see, we have a few new features. At the top of the page you’ll find our blog roll under “sites we adore” and all the other info is pretty self explanatory…except for “be a rosebud.” That is a special project that we’ve been toiling over and will be unveiling in the next few weeks. I can’t tell you how excited we are about it! Also, at the bottom of each post you can find ways to share things you like here!

In celebration of our big move, we have some fabulous giveaways headed your way this month…the first being two, count ’em, two $95 gift certificates to a fabulous company that has gorgeous swimsuits galore called hapari. That means there will be two lucky winners!

I would go for a tankini myself, but if a bikini is more your scene, you’ll find those too…along with fabulous coverups and even goodies for the fella or kiddo in your life!

So, here’s the skinny on ways you can enter…Update: You only have to tell us which action you took. For example, if you followed us on GFC, just tell us that. We’ll count it 10 times. You don’t have to enter a comment that you followed on GFC 10 times. Sorry about the confusion!

2. Follow our new site with Google Friend Connect, which is at the top of our left sidebar. {10 entries}

    Great move–blog roll redirected, but the button on my site needs to be updated. I can’t wait to hear about your new additions. I like the blue dot bikini, and i’d have to get some inserts!!

  13. Dancing Branflake says

    Congratulations on an awesome new site! I was wondering what was going on when I saw a ton of your blog posts pop up on my dashboard. The result is amazing! I’m a little sad because my computer makes me fill out the name, email address, and website every time for word press. But you guys are worth it!

  14. Johanna says

    • The BonBon Rose Girls says

      @Jen, Oops, sorry I missed this question! With most of our giveaways we just kind of let people interpret that rule for themselves because people rarely do it the same way even if we lay it out. We figure ya’ll are taking the time to enter, we’ll take the time to count up the entries in whatever manner you submit them!

  17. Laura Scott says

    i adore the zebra v neck tankini.

    thanks to giving birth to my 4 loveys i have stretch marks that i’m not brave enough to wear a bikini anymore! when i see a chick wearing one w/her stretch marks showing…part of me wants to raise my tankini and show mine off too! haha

  18. Holly says

    I would probably stock up on various swimsuit bottoms, such as the regular black or green ones. (+1)
    And I’m following you lovely girls on Twitter (+2)
    Aaand I’m following Hapari on Twitter (+2)
    Aaaand I’m following with Google Friend Connect (+10)
    = 15

    I love the new site! Congrats on getting it up and running without any complications.

  19. Jules says

    Congrats on the big move and count I’m following you over here now too. I also checked to make sure it’s updated on my blog roll.

    Count me in for this giveaway! I heart tankinis and would love to win one of these gift certificates. I especially love the Aqua Bay V-Neck Tankini. I’m so into to turquoise this summer.

  20. Salt says

    OMG! It looks amazing over here! Congrats on the big move and the new layout. I love it!

    And I LOVE Hapari suits! I actually had a fave from before, but I never got it…it’s the Metro V-Neck Tankini. (I’m all about more coverage swimsuits this summer!)

    I also follow you here, on Twitter, like you on Facebook (and IRL obvs), like Hapari on Facebook, and have your new button in my collection! I think that about covers it!

  21. Christina C says

    I just became a google follower on your new site. Congrats! I would love the Brown Sport Tankini even more so if when I put it on I look like the model. 🙂

  22. J says

    Looove the new site!

    I’m honestly too lazy to enter this giveaway but someday soon I will get off my ass and actually do it!! You guys give away more free stuff than The Price Is Right. 🙂

  23. Katy Mary says

    LOVE your new site!! Congrats on switching to wordpress, LiLu did a fab job for you ladies. Great giveaway, perfect for the beginning of summer! I would love the Black Aloha Sport Tankini myself as I don’t own a tankini at all! I also follow you here, I like you on facebook, and I follow you on Twitter. Happy “hump” day!!

  24. Jen says

    Love the new blog ladies! It looks amazing. Congratulations. Of course I updated my blog roll, and I followed you girls on Google Friend Connect.

  25. Jen says

    Ok, this giveaway couldn’t come at a better time for me, since I need to buy a new suit for my upcoming cruise! I would pick either the Island Fever v-neck tankini with the brown bikini bottoms or the Blue Aloha v-neck tankini with red polka-dot bikini bottoms that Kristin chose! I’d probably go with the Island Fever though since those are my “beach colors.”

  26. Valerie says

    Congratulations on the new site, it looks fabulous! And thank you for the link to your apps post, I’m going to check it out now! 🙂

    Tankini for me Please! I am definately entering this giveaway. I so need new swimwear for this summer.

    So here it goes…

    I love all the patterns and how the tops and bottoms don’t match but are coordinating… My fave is the brown zebra w/ the red polka dot bottoms!

  34. Chelsey says

    Love the new site!! Great work! I’ve been ‘window shopping’ at Haprai for a couple summers now and haven’t bought anything yet. I have several patterns I love—retro, metro, island fever, GNO and mardi gras! I just have to decide which one is best! 🙂 But the price is so reasonable, I could get a few to mix and match! Thanks for the give-away!! Have a fantastic day!!

  35. Maki says

    Oh my my, another favorite blog switching to WordPress! Crazy! Seriously, everyone is saying goodbye to Blogger… Wow..

    Anyway, congrats to your new site – it looks so pretty!!


  36. laura says

    great new site.

    turns out i need a tankini. i ordered one thru american eagle last summer…. long story , but i still dont have one 🙂
    have a great day
    ~laura x

    • The BonBon Rose Girls says

      @laura, Hi Laura , sorry it took so long for us to respond. We wanted our own .com, so we figured it was a good time to make the WP switch as you own your site whereas Blogger owns all Blogger blogs. And the plugins that you can use with WP are amazing!

  37. Shea says

    Great new site girls! I would choose the Retro V-neck tankini from Hapari’s site.
    I also followed with GFC. And “liked” on Facebook. I already follow on Twitter. And as soon as I’m done writing this, I’m tweeting about the giveaway! Do I really need a new swimsuit or what!?!

  38. Maria@PersonalizedSketches says

    Whew! I was here this morning and you were at 22 followers, but then I had to step out of the house…and now I see I am follower 103!!!! So much wonderful blog reading out there…but so little time to do it! I will be back :o) Your new blog is beautiful…love the colors and design.

    I really like the retro sport tankini….1 entry
    I follow you now on GFC…10X
    I am grabbing your button…5x
    I hope that I got this right and that I wasn’t supposed to enter separate comments…
    I have facebook, but not to savvy about following on that!
    um…tankini works for me! I need the coverage!
    Blessings & Aloha!

  39. Jill VanTrease says

    Love your new site – I’m all joined up! I follow you on Facebook and Twitter…now, does hatari do maternity bathing suits?! I’ll have to find out – they are gorgeous!

  40. Deborah Milne says

    Hello Ladies & I ‘LUV’ your new website. Leave it to you two to have a classy new look. Thank you for yet another great giveaway. I fell in love with the ‘Giraffe tankini’, very gorgeous & very forgiving. Congrat’s to you both & have a great rest of this week. xx

    Oh – was a follower on GFC!!

  41. Chessa! says

    LOVE IT! yay:)

    as for the suits, I’d love to win bc they are all fabulous and I’m all about the bikinis! I wore my belly out super proudly throughout my entire pregnancy and I know that I will need a motivator to lose the weight when my belly is flab instead of baby.

  42. Life of a Doctor's Wife says

    Congrats on your new site! It looks fantastic!! I updated my blog roll with the new URL.

    All the swimsuits are adorable! I think I’d choose the Metro V-Neck Tankini – super cute!!

    Can’t wait to find out about the rosebud project… what a tease!!!

  43. Kellie says

    Love the new site! 🙂
    So I am a follower via google reader I think. I don’t know. I just click follow and you pop up on my dashboard. I know. I’m soooo super computer saavy. Ha! 🙂 (10 entries)

    I also like BonBonRose Girls and Hapari on Facebook and am a Twitter friend.
    (2 + 2 +2 entries = 6)

    And I would totally choose that last tankini you posted up there. I’ll be needing it come January after I have this kiddo and go to Puerto Rico for my sister’s wedding! Mama will need a new suit and one that COVERS the stomach! (1 entry)

    So if I did the math right, that is 17 entries! Come on! Mama needs a new bathing suit! 🙂

  44. Style with Benefits says

    Omg, love the new site! Congrats on the move… everything looks amazing!

    I had a hard time finding just one suit so here’s my top 3:

    Aqua Zebra Butterfly Tankini
    Metro S.O.S Tankini
    Mardi Gras Butterfly Tankini

    would have to ask the hubb to pick one if I won, I suppose! 🙂

  48. CheyAnne says

    Wow, what a great give away and even if I don’t win I will be back to order a tankini from you There were quite a few great ones, but I liked the Mango Mudd v neck and the Island Fever and the Red Aloha, see you have some many cute ones. I’ve done most of the requirements but not all. I did suggest you to all my friends on FB, all my girls and a few men as well. I tweeted and liked all of it.
    peace n abundance,

  49. Courtney says

  59. Bethany says

    I would choose the zebra print top with teal bottoms, but the high tummy tuk ones, not the regular ones – I still have post-baby belly and I am long torso’d. =) Thanks for posting about this company; it’s always good to find a swimsuit company that carries a variety of sizes that doesn’t include the word “miracle” in the title. I was already following you on Twitter and GFC. But I re-friended you bc I assumed it is now a new ip as well. LOVE YOU, GIRLS! P.S. I nearly panicked when I opened you email, thinking something was wrong and you wouldn’t be posting anymore! LOL.

    What a great move you made, everything looks great 🙂

  62. Barbara says

    I love your website and I’d love to win the Hapari red aloha tankini (med) with the red and white tummy tuk bottom (small). I’ll probably buy another one too. They are so cute, and they look so flattering and comfy!
