Giveaway: Bubble Necklace

Bubble Necklace Giveaway

I am an Etsy addict, so I was excited to be contacted recently Diane, owner of Etsy store Blue Bird Bride, to see if I wanted to try one of her bubble necklaces. As soon as I saw the necklaces, I knew I had to have one. And I needed to give one away to a reader! She has lots of beautiful colors, but I ended up choosing royal blue as it's my favorite color. I was really happy to see that this necklace had an adjustable length that was long Continue Reading

OOTD: Business Casual

Another outfit of the day. Can I tell you how much I freakin' LOVE this shirt? The cut is amazing, and it feel just like a t-shirt, but I can wear it to work with slacks and still be appropriate. I now want one in every color. Multiple co-worker comments? WIN. top: Kiyonna Caycee Twist Top, size 3 in Darkest Storm pants: old from Lane Bryant shoes: last year from Old Navy earrings: from whitelotus design on Etsy Continue Reading
