“Mini” Giveaway

Last week I treated myself to an online shopping spree, which included me purchasing several accessories from Forever 21. I’m not sure if I was tired (I do most of my online shopping at night), or if I was just really excited (I’m somewhat addicted to online shopping), but I mistakenly ordered two of the same necklace. Instead of going through the hassle of returning/exchanging, I’ve decided to share the wealth by doing a “mini” GIVEAWAY!

To be entered in the giveaway all you have to do is:

1. Subscribe to The Blend

Voila! It’s that easy. The Winner will be announced on Monday November 5, 2012. Be sure to check back to see if you won!

Giveaway open to U.S. readers only. Giveaway entry ends on Sunday November 4, 2012 at 11:00pm EST. Good luck!!

Giveaway Closed. Congratulations to Andrea Bailey!

Chalk Day: Watch Video

Happy Friday Everyone!

I wanted to share this light-hearted video with you guys (courtesy of my boyfriend). My father is a pastor, so on Sunday’s some of the members come by the house for dinner and fellowship. A few sunday’s ago, some of the younger kids were outside playing with chalk. Being a child at heart, I immediately joined in on the fun! I had the “artistic” idea to try to color the whole patio in chalk! I didn’t expect it to be such a big hit, but before I knew it everyone (young and old alike) were busy chalking away. Unfortunately, we ran out of chalk before we could finish the whole patio, but the best part was seeing everyone having fun and joining together to accomplish a huge task! It’s little moments like these that bring a smile to my face 

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and remember — enjoy family, enjoy friends, enjoy the simple things in life!

Outfit Inspo: Busy Sick Days

Hi Everyone!

I hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday! So many people are getting sick. I guess there is a “bug” going around. Unfortunately for some, even in the midst of not feeling well, life still goes on and you have a million things to accomplish. Today I was playing around on Polyvore and created this outfit, inspired by those “busy sick days”.  I love the graphic of the woman crying on this sweater…which is exactly how I feel when I’m sick. Boyfriend jeans and flats for comfort when running errands. And of course, a small lightweight crossbody bag to store plenty of kleenex, cough drops, and hand sanitizer.
