photo shoot: carly rae jepson style

We all know that pictures are worth 1,000 words so I won't have to say very much. This is my niece Savannah. We took photos today. Be jealous.

Enough said.

giveaway: Lindsay's Secret Closet

We have a lovely giveaway! My dear friend Lindsay and I went to high school together. In fact, we danced together in high school! Anyway, she has this cute little shop called Lindsay's Secret Closet and we are doing a giveaway!

Lindsay provided me this awesome mint, striped maxi skirt and I LOVE it! I have worn it 3 times since I got it and there are not enough words for it. It is extremely comfortable, and it is still very fitting for showing off those curves we all love. Plus it's light and perfect for all seasons!

coral tank: Target
denim jacket: American Eagle
mint, striped maxi skirt: Lindsay's Secret Closet
heart necklace: roommate clothing swap
mint watch: Target

 I loved working with Lindsay and I know you will also. A big thank you to her for providing the product for me to review.

we have a winner!

We have a winner for our $25 Target giveaway! Congratulations to...






MYSELF! I didn't realize I could actually win from my own giveaway but I'm pumped about it!




APRIL FOOLS! I'm not that ridiculous.

Our dear winner is Alyssa Gapske from Glitter and Gapske!

I'll be emailing you today to get your info and send that to you immediately. Thank you to all of you who participated. I will be sure to do more giveaways in the near future so stay posted!

My dear Laurie over at The Brotherton's blog did an awesome spotlight on all of her button swappers here. I thought it was a great idea. She asked each of us to tell our most awkward story of the month. I've got a pretty awkward story so go check it out! Not sure why my picture is blurry but oh well.

I'll be doing a fashion post in my Easter dress later, but for now I hope you have an awesome day filled with lots of April Fools jokes and even more laughs.

 Savannah wants to say April Fools too! I have the cutest niece. My little chunkers.

giveaway: fifty followers

I know early today I said I was taking a break from blogging, but forgive this one quick post. Last week I reached 50 followers (huge deal I know), and I wanted to celebrate with a giveaway. This is for all of you Target lovers! $25 to you from me. You have until the end of the month to enter and then the winner will be selected!

mustache monday

It's Monday again and I have an announcement to make! I'm taking a short break from blogging until this semester is over. Things have been getting crazy with work and school and I just need to get my priorities back in order. I hope I will be missed over the next three and a half weeks! I love blogging and could honestly spend days on it, but unfortunately that doesn't quite work out with reality. So for my last post for 24 days, I made you some mustaches. Cool right?
If you are a fan of my mustaches, then show me some love! I will still be replying to emails, comments, and what not, so feel free to contact me.

While I am temporarily gone, I am open to hosting guest blog posts. If you are wanting to do a guest post on my blog, then just give me a shout out!

When I come back, I am giving my blog a mega facelift and could not be more excited about it, so don't forget about me!

rip: google reader

It has been announced that Google Reader is retiring as of July 1st. Bummer I know. Now you should come follow me on {Bloglovin.} Bloggers are predicting that Bloglovin will be the popular route to go once Google Reader kicks the bucket, so come join the club!

Do you like what I did with my new app? I am loving it. It's such a fun way to add text to any image for just $1.99. There are hundreds of fonts, plenty of colors to choose from, and ways to share directly to facebook, instagram, twitter, and tumblr.

Check out these awesome examples of text added to photos.

You can also get the free option with less capabilities.

Today I am linking up with {Aloha Friday Blog Hop.}

throwback thursday: cheerleading

This week I took a walk down memory lane, back to my high school cheerleading days. That's right, this girl was a cheerleader. In fact, I was the cheerleader with the whitest legs. They glow. Nonetheless, I rocked that uniform.

Check out that booty!

Singing the national anthem with my two nieces!

That's my niece and I! Best friends since babies :)

Cheerleader prep :)

Bouquets and such at our senior night.

Thanks for stopping by this lovely Thursday!
