June 1st, 2012 | LIFE UPDATE: May & Blog Podium

Aloha everyone! A lot has happened in the past month or so and I thought a quick little update was in order considering it’s now June. First, on a more personal note in May I started an internship at an international fashion PR agency. It’s been going well so far & is super exciting but the commute plus working on-top of it is pretty tiring, hence why I haven’t had much time to blog.

Also in may, was Blog Podium! I had met some of the girls before but it was nice to finally get to meet everyone in person. It was crazy weird how it felt like we all knew each other for years & meeting up was no big deal. I had a great time at the event, and would definitely go again. I learned a few new tricks, got to chat with some great companies and most of all spent the day with some seriously awesome ladies. After the event we went out for dinner & some for more drinks after. (Thanks to Holly for the above photo!)

You can see more photos here and here. If you want to hear more about the event check out the blogs of the lovely ladies I got to spend the day with for their posts:

Elycia (&  hubby, Ivan) from love elycia
Chantilly from my girl thursday
Mel from smiles from mel

And last but not least… June is also going to be a big month for me in the blogsphere! I have three totally awesome giveaways for this month, and will be posting two of them this week. I’m also going to be starting a mini-blog series. I gave the blog a little make over too, but I’m not sure if I like it or not so that may be changing.  Also I still have some spots left for June sponsors so email me if you’re interested. Happy June everyone! :)

April 6th, 2012 | Peeps & Eggs

Happy Easter everyone! I took advantage of having the day off to sleep in and get some serious spring cleaning done. 5  garbage bags later my closet is rid off old clothes, things that don’t fit, and holey socks. I also made this cute easter arrangement after spending what seemed like an eternity of blowing out 30+ eggs and dying them. Tonight I’m going to enjoy a movie with the family and peep s’moores.

Still on the to-do list for this weekend; a thorough clean of my room, make some yummy Easter snacks for my family’s Easter dinner, make a pile of all my pants/dresses/skirts that need to be hemmed and some quality family time. I hope you are all enjoying your long wekend so far! Are you guys doing anything exiting this weekend?

Well, I’m sure most of you have heard by now, tomorrow Google will kill Google Friend Connect for all blogs that are not blogger hosted. (No love for us WordPress folks) So for those of you you follow me via GFC, I’d hate to see you go. As a quick reminder, here are some alternative ways you can follow/connect with my blog! I hope that you will stick around :)

   ♥ Add me to your Google Reader feed

Well, it’s February! And I couldn’t be more excited! And that means I have a fresh batch of sponsors in the sidebar. Please take some time to check them out, they’re all wonderfuly talented ladies!

So why is February so awesome? A few reasons… I won’t lie – I love Valentines Day (which is kind of funny because I’m always the single gal!) I just love to give out Valentines and little goody bags to my friends. Also, February is not only going to be an exciting month for me, as well as the blog!

First of all, there is a bunch of new and exciting things happening with my side project, Fanciful Notion this month. We have 3 shoots lined up for the month & the start of March! Secondly…

Birthday pancakes could only mean one thing ;)… My birthday is this month! It’s going to be a busy month for me celebrating with friends & family. I love to entertain so I’m really excited to throw a cupcake themed potlock party.

But I decided I wanted to celebrate my birthday with all of my lovely followers too! I have some amazing giveaways that will be going on throughout February from myself and my wonderful sponsors!

I’m not the only February baby blogger out there sharing the goodies. Nat from Modern Buttercup will be having a series of giveaways to celebrate her birthday as well!

Stay tuned, chickadees!
