Karen Walker Number One Look Alike Giveaway

I'm crazy about sunglasses. I have lots of them, in many different shapes and colors. Not only do they protect your eyes, they instantly boost your style! I don't know about you, but I'm guilty of wearing them sans the sunshine pretty often. Sometimes it's because I feel like they compliment what I'm wearing, while other times it's because I just rolled out of bed and they help me to not look like such a mess! HA.

One of my current favorite pairs are these Karen Walker Number One look alike sunglasses I bought from Tobi a little while ago (post about that here). I LOVE their bold modern shape! I bought two so I could giveaway a pair to a lovely reader - just in time for SUMMER! YAY!

Wise Words

I adore this quote so much I thought I would share it. So simple, so important. I may just purchase a print and frame it I'm so fond of it. I'll keep you posted on that one. In other news my hair has officially reached 'out-of-control' status. It's been more than six months since it's been cut and it's so thick and unruly, all I can manage with it lately is pony's, messy buns, or a side bride. Yawn. Am I the only one doing this? HA. Please tell me I'm not! 

In other, other news, a new giveaway is beginning tomorrow for a pair of Karen Walker Number One look alike sunglasses (remember this post?)! FUN! And just in time for summer See you tomorrow, have a lovely day!

Four Lovely Finds: Perfume

I don't know about you, but when I find a perfume I love, I am hooked. HOOKED I tell you. It doesn't happen often, maybe once every few years, but when it does I find myself sniffing my wrists habitually, daydreaming of the pretty clothes I'll wear and the pretty places I'll visit while wearing the perfume. Silly I know.

The latest and greatest find, FANCY LOVE by Jessica Simpson. I know shocking right? Although, I don't follow high profile people (alright maybe one, cough, David Beckham), and don't know anything about her, I will say boy does she know how to make some AMAZING smelling perfume. No joke. It's so good, I bought two bottles at once, which I've never done with perfume before. After purchasing them I went online to read other people's reviews about the perfume and apparently I'm not the only one who has discovered and loved this gem. I read through close to fifty reviews from others girls ranting and raving about how much they loved the perfume and won't buy any other perfume. Although I do love love love it, I like to mix things up, so below are my top four perfume picks.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

Do you have a perfume you're crazy about? I'd love to hear about it!

Things I'm Afraid To Tell You

Well hello there (insert smile and wink). I'm Heather. This is my personal blog and it's been a little while since I've spent some time sharing here (insert sincere heartfelt apology). There are many factors that have contributed to my absence, some of which I'll share below. While I was drafting this post I stumbled across, this post, and it struck a very similar chord to what I had already written, so I've decided to include my own 'things I'm afraid to tell you' bit below. I'm sharing because I feel that quite often this very weird alternate universe that is blogging can feel and seem like non-reality, be perceived as all fun and games, or that blogging is this competitive comparison rat race to obtain, money, clothes, land a job, or social recognition (not so). We all have our own hurdles, weaknesses, and struggles, and this post is really for me to take down the curtain of fear of vulnerability and share who am I and my thought processes that don't get published.

Here goes.....

  • I struggle with personal failure on an almost daily basis. Although I'm very aware of my God given innate talents and abilities, the recent fall-out of my marriage of almost ten years to my high-school sweetheart (which two amazing kiddos were the product of) has left me devastated and lost with how to move forward.
  • There are many days I don't put much thought into what I wear. Those are the outfit posts that don't make it to the blog. We style bloggers don't always look like our outfit posts.
  • I recently landed a full-time job out of necessity surrounding the situation mentioned above, but doing so has meant shelving finishing school which terrifies me to the core. My mind now reels with how I will juggle supporting my kiddos and going back to school. 
  •  I have been slacking on reading my Bible. Big time. And it shows. I've compromised in many areas in my life I shouldn't because I'm keeping myself busy and distracted with other things. I have the desire to grow my relationship with Jesus, but my flesh often wins out. 
  • I just wrote a bullet that I completely erased for fear of getting completely burned for. Maybe I'll grow some nerve and share it someday.
  • I am forgetful and scatterbrained (thanks in part to genetics from my father) and have been my whole life. It's something I really really dislike and have been working on curbing, for, well, let's just say a good chunk of time. I project that I'm punctual and organized, but deep down I'm not. Small example: I drove off with my coffee cup on the roof on my car yesterday.......for the eleventh time. Good grief.

Exhale.....I have many more I could share, but that was tough. I hope it wasn't too much or too heavy...it's just honest....and I'm all about honest. Have you ever shared a similar post? Would you? I'd love for you to share and leave a link to yours in the comments or just share below if you'd like.
