Some Things Worth Mentioning...

Hi lovelies!

I am just in the *best* mood this week - it must be the three day weekend that's making me so happy! Plus my work usually gives us a half day the day before an official holiday, so I'm thinking I'll be tasting sweet freedom by 3 pm on Thursday! Fantastic!

Stick with me, this is a long post! I've got a lot of tidbits floating around in my brain today :)


My bloggy friend Preppy in New England has an amazing offer for her readers. As a way to celebrate her first month of blogging, she has teamed with Anna Street Studio to offer 20% off all online orders received by the end of July! Definitely check out this great deal and also start following Preppy in New England. She posts the cutest, preppy New England finds!


Remember when I posted about the website Cute Clips and More? I showed you all some adorable finds from the online store (click here and here to see old posts). Well, Karen has started a new blog for her store! She's new to the blogging community so please go welcome her!


I was pleased as punch when all of my Ebay items sold (for much more than I thought), but I have come to the sad realization that free shipping is a thing of the past. It's ridiculous how much I spent to ship these items! I will be listing 3 more Lilly dresses (the ones seen here, here, and here) after the 4th of July passes. I'll let you all know when those go up.


Oh and the news I am most excited about...last night I happened to stumble across an awesome website called Accent the Party. They sell all kinds of products to make your next event even better, whether it's your wedding, bridal shower, birthday, etc. Accent the Party also has a party blog that gives all kind of inspiration when it comes to entertaining. There are all sorts of categories such as cake ideas, table top ideas, and DIY instructions.

I subscribed to their party blog via e-mail and this morning I woke up to find that I had won a $100 gift certificate to use on the website! How awesome is that?! The giveaway for another $100 shopping spree started today so head over and sign could be the next winner!


I completely forgot to announce the winner for the Finders Keepers Jewelry giveaway! So without further ado, the lucky new owner of the beautiful cuff is Jen and Rob. Congrats! If you could e-mail me I will put you in contact with Barbara from FK. Thanks again to all who entered and to Barbara for making this giveaway possible.


Lastly, don't forget to check out my last post and consider lending fellow bloggy friend, Catrina a helping hand!

Have a great Wednesday!!!

$100 gift certificate!!! WOW!! Have fun spending it!! They have some great stuff! And I know what you mean about the shipping on is getting ridiculously expensive to mail things now! But I still LOVE to do it!! :D

Needs Help said...

So cool you won the gift certificate!! I too have had some trouble reconciling what to do about shipping on ebay! I've got to cover my costs but I feel like some of my auctions really suffered because I charged $7 shipping. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my next round of auctions I plan to put up after the 4th.

Wow! If I havent asked this before, HOW do you handle doing all these giveaways, etc? Thanks, by the way :o)

And also, I posted this question about commenting on a comment.

Which, if my comment to yours that u left to me didnt get seen by you, I am leaving it here:

Miss Sweet Tea, thank you! Yes, It feels so great to actually have that DH number and not just be thinking about it and working towards getting it.

Thank you for all your past comments :o)

You are just TOO sweet. THANK YOU for my housewarming gift. I was so surprised last night when I checked the mail. I LOVE it and I'll be posting about it soon. Danielle told me I would just love you and she's so right.

Here's to a long weekend!
