Spring Swap 2014

I have been hesitant about joining a swap since the last 3 I tried doing ended up not working out but I LOVE the bloggers, Stormy & Katie, that were hosting the Spring Swap so I decided to give it a try {and was not disappointed!}

I got matched up with Amy @ Daily Dose of Donahue. I love her pictures of her kids! Seriously adorable!! I sent her a bright spring-y scarf, lip gloss, fun note cards (and got a few for myself), and the 2-wrap pedicure from Jamberry.  

Amy sent a super yummy smelling candle (Island Coconut), printable, cute headband, and nail polish and nail polish wraps (which I am super excited to challenge against my Jamberry wraps!). Im so excited spring is FINALLY here and we are getting some gorgeous weather! Definitely need to light that Island Coconut candle and encourage more warm weather to come our way!!

Hello April!

Miss me?!

I've been super busy lately and haven't had the time to post! I have a few slow days ahead of me so it is time to catch up!

What have I been up to you are wondering?!

February was pretty uneventful....

March was far from it!

My Little C has turned 1! Seriously not sure where the time went.

We went on vacation in Mexico!!! A week full of warm sunshine, white sand beaches and turquoise water?! Yes, it was amazing. Be jealous.

In one of my late January/early February posts I mentioned some possible big changes coming. Well, what I was talking about at that moment didn't end up working out. HOWEVER, a new opportunity presented itself and it came at a perfect time. I am now a Jamberry Nails consultant!! And I couldn't be more excited!! check it out @

I'll be doing a few more detailed posts on the fun events listed above and some updates. So stay tuned!!!!

Easy Canvas Prints

I recently was told about an opportunity with Easy Canvas Prints by a fellow blogger and I, of course, jumped at the chance to work with this company! I received a canvas print from them and I must say, I am VERY happy with it!

The canvas they use is a very high quality material and the photo quality is outstanding. I have seen prints before so I wasn't expecting much from this company. The frame was of higher quality than others I have also seen. These prints are something you do not want to miss out on!

One of the things I really enjoyed about this company is that they have different customization options when you order your print. You can order a single print in different sizes or you can go to their gallery options and they design a gallery wall for you! They give you the option of printing photos from Facebook and Instagram (a favorite feature of mine) so all of those pictures on your phone don't go to waste! You can choose the thickness of the frame or you could even choose to have the canvas framed. I choose to stick with the standard 3/4 inch so it wasn't thicker then the frames I will be using surrounding the print. You also can choose how you want the sides of the canvas to be printed. You have 2 different options for continuation of the photo or you can have it printed with  a color. Which would be a great way to add a bright accent color to a gallery wall. The final option you have is to either have a wall hanger or get a table stand attached.

I already have plans for two prints for my home! But first I need to get my new canvas from Easy Canvas Prints put into a gallery wall! Don't miss out and use this link to receive 50% off your canvas order!
