The day I attempted to be a fashion blogger.

Recently I was the given the opportunity to learn about The Shine Project which is not only a blog but also a company ran by a beautiful (no really, she's absolutely stunning) woman by the name of Ashley. The Shine Project is a company who employs at risk youth in America, to help them go to college. Let me tell you, these kids make some of the most beautiful pieces of jewelry. These kids have got some serious skills!

When I loaded the store's online shop I was completely floored. Not only is this an amazing company but the jewelry was gorgeous, I couldn't believe kids in high school were making them. To say I was having trouble picking out my favorite pieces would be a vast understatement, I wanted one of everything for me and every single one of my girl friends.

Once I made my choices and let it all sink in, I realized this would be the greatest excuse ever to pretend to be a fashion blogger for a day. So, my beauties arrived, I put some paint on the barn, got some help from a sweet man companion, and did the fashion blogger thing. Unfortunately I've yet to nail down the classic look away pose. Baby steps, guys, baby steps. 

 Fashion blogger, I am not. We all know this. Ashley must be a little crazy but hey, I'm a lot crazy, so let's roll with it.

I can not wait to order myself a few more items from The Shine Project store, I've got my eye on enough items to suck up half a paycheck. I don't mind breaking my budget diva lifestyle for this company because it's a purchase I can feel good about.

What are some of your favorite items from The Shine Project store?
If you found a couple of things you couldn't decide between I have a surprise for you:
Use the code 'Valentines' and get an item for free when you buy 2!

Oh, and for those of you here to see me fall flat on my face as a fashion blogger...

Don't forget to linkup with me tomorrow and share your fun facts!

Talk weavy to me.

Heyyyyy you guyssss, since we all made it another day I'm here today to talk serious business.
And by serious business, I mean WEAVE
It's no secret I love to rock locks of other people's hair on my head and I've even admitted that it's somewhat of a dude magnet. My secret weapon, if you will.
Well, when Best Hair Buy contacted me asking if I'd review some weave for them I heard the blogging angels singing from high above.
Finally, this damn blog paid off. Just kidding, I love this blog, we know this.

Here's the hair I'm talking about today, if you missed my post on Monday.
When I was browsing I decided to get a little crazy and order the 22 inch clip-in human hair extensions, which are 4 inches longer than the previous weave I'm used to.
Once they arrived I was really excited because they were great quality and definitely the best type of human hair extensions! 

Moving on, let's talk about the additional products you'll need to achieve this look.
1. Obviously, you need to get you some weave. Again, mine came from Best Hair Buy.

2. Moroccan Oil. You don't have to use this exact brand but get you some lube hair oil. 

3. Hair spray. I'm a big lover of the Moroccan Oil hair spray, too.

4. Chardonnay. You already know.

5. Curling iron/wand. I'll explain this in the vlog.

Here is a vlog to give you the step-by-step instructions.
Except the Chardonnay turned on me and I forgot to say good bye at the end. I hope we can still be friends.

Let me know if you have any questions and don't forget to check out for all of your weavy needs.

Like it? Love it?

Step in to Ella's Office {A Lifeguard Press Review}

Hello, sweet friends. Today I am faced with a new challenge here on my blog. A beautiful company, by the name of Lifeguard Press, has been so sweet and sent me a some goodies for me to review here. (yay, goodies!) Why is this a challenge, you may ask (bitch, you just got free stuff... stfu)? Well, I have yet to figure out how to review a product without sounding like a used car salesman. 

So, I decided to hand the reins over to my educated K9 companion, Ella, to help me out with this task.
Because she knows a lot about shopping and darling preppy items. After all, she was a Florida State girl with me.

Step into her office, wont you?

From what I've been able to decipher, Ella's thoughts towards this sweet Lilly Pulitzer notebook and matching pen are all positive and upbeat.

She really enjoys the durable feel to this fancy pen, as it rests against her thumbless paw, and how nicely she can jot down all of her HTML coding notes for blog designs in this handy dandy book.

Yeah, you all thought I was the mastermind behind Gettin Whitty With It didn't you? (suckaaas)
Homegirl buys her own dog food and supports her uneducated little brother. She's really going places.

In addition, I pick up the vibe that she is loving the designs on each page and how fun they make writing on a new page. 

Ella also appreciated that she can bring her notebook along to the dog park and doesn't have to worry about the cover getting messed up because it's nice, hard and protected.

That Lilly thinks of everything!

We give Lifeguard Press a big thumbs up (well, I let Ella borrow one of my thumbs so she could) and think you should go spend your paycheck this week at their store. Ella's thinking about spending her paycheck on some things from the Dylan's Candy Bar section of their shop.
Can't kick that dogs sweet tooth.

Anywho, that's all we've got for you today, friends. Happy it's-almost-Friday-day!
