Who wants a brand-spankin’-new #HTCOne smartphone? It’s time for a #TroopOneX Giveaway! (CLOSED)

Let’s start this week off with a bang, shall we? I’m so excited to announce this mah-jor giveaway from our partner, HTC! I kicked off 2013 by participating in HTC’s #TroopOneX, a dynamic group of bloggers picked to testdrive the One X+ and use it to capture our everyday moments. Each week, we’re prompted with a challenge to generate content with our new smartphone and share it with our readers. Since receiving my One X+ a few weeks ago, I’m pretty smitten. Its impressive 8MP camera shoots high-res photos and HD video, so I can leave my digital camera at home. It keeps me organized through my Google mail and calendars, and Google Play is packed with creative apps to keep me inspired (including Instagram) and social media apps that help me stay connected while I’m on the go. It’s been a powerful tool for my blog and my business. Here’s where you come in: One lucky APP reader will win a brand new HTC One X+ — a supercharged Android smartphone that’s built for music …

weekend giveaway: love your “assets”

bisou bisou sweater dress, Decree utility jacket, and floral ASSETS by Sara Blakely Shaper Tights in Floral c/o jcpenney | Target boots (2009) | sock bun! Okay ladies, imagine your beloved SPANX and your favorite patterned tights falling in love and having a super-shaper-legwear baby. It has happened, ya’ll. And it’s beautiful. Meet ASSETS® by Sara Blakely — pretty shapewear that flattens your tummy while simultaneously smoothing your thighs and rear, created by the lady who made butts and thighs better all over the world with SPANX. jcpenney shipped me a pair, and then sent me on a little shopping trip to find a fall outfit to “show off my ASSETS®,” if you will. So I decided to put them to the ultimate test with a snug little sweater dress from bisou bisou — a style I usually wouldn’t dare wear without substantial leggings or skinny jeans underneath. The ASSETS® didn’t disappoint. Not only do they deliver on the shaping promise SPANX is famous for, they’re cute and comfortable, too! And — here’s the best part — available at …

all those bowl cuts and stirrup pants were not worn in vain! for one of you at least :)

  Ya’ll, your entries for the jcp back-to-school giveaway made. my. week. Year, maybe. I wish I could give every single one of you a gift card for baring your little fifth grade sartorial souls! It seems the majority of us suffered through elementary school with bad haircuts, lots o’ spandex, overalls, and all things florescent and sparkly. But there can be only one winner. And in a random drawing, that winner was…. {drumroll} Brielle, I can’t even tell you all the times I ruined white outfits as a youngin’. In fact, I’m a little nervous even wearing these white jeans today. If only Tide-to-Go pens were invented when we were in school. Thanks for entering, everyone! Keep your eyes peeled for future giveaways!

lovingeco giveaway winner!

I made this little video late yesterday afternoon before meeting up with Anne from Wobisobi for dinner, and I never got around to uploading it last night when I got home. {too much sangria, perhaps?} So a little late, but we have a winner! Special thanks to LovingEco for hosting this great giveaway!

back-to-school giveaway from jcp!

Even though my classroom days are behind me, I think the back-to-school season is the perfect time for a fresh start. I still feel a little gravitational tug toward retail during this time of year, and when I think of back-to-school shopping, I get butterflies in my stomach. There’s nothing better than those early August sprees and picking out the perfect school supplies and first day outfit. I still stock up on colorful pens, day planners, and cute notebooks, and I’ve replaced new backpacks with new messenger bags that will fit my Macbook, and lunch boxes with reusable coffee cups. I was in elementary school in the 90’s, and floral baby doll dresses were my mini-fashionista apparel of choice. I usually paired them with keds and matching socks. Annnnd, probably a matching scrunchie or two. Oh, and usually shorts underneath {mandated by Mom} so as to remain modest and respectable while playing on the monkey bars during recess. Did I say mini-fashionista? Maybe in training. This Olsenboye belted print dress seemed like the perfect grown-up version …
