$200 LushDecor.com GC Giveaway

LushDecor.Com Giveaway
I have been provided compensation from Lush Decor to facilitate this post and giveaway. All opinions are mine.

I mentioned  in this décor post that I have to come to grips with the idea that decorating and styling my home to my liking and taste is going to take time…..and money. Once I embraced that idea I’ve decided to just pick up pieces I see and like along the way. I’m no longer trying to finish one room before starting the next, if I see something I like, before purchasing I try to think about where I will put it and if there is a place then I buy it, if the price is right.

{Weekend Vlog} Annie, Meetings, & Calzones

Weekend Vlog 1

So I’m finally kicking off my weekend vlog series. In the past I mentioned that I wanted to integrate more video into the Lipgloss and Binky brand so I thought a great way to do that would be to replace the weekend wrap up posts I’ve done in the past with weekend vlogs.

Discover Your Winning Line Up at Publix + $25 GC

January 19, 2015
This post has been sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are my own.

I’m an avid Publix shopper for items that I can’t and don’t pick up from the Farmer’s Market. I find the BOGO deals to be great, especially when it comes to lunch box goodies for the babies. With the Superbowl approaching, there are rumblings that the big party will be here….at my house. We’ve never hosted before so this should be interesting.

{OOTD} Blanket Scarf

January 16, 2015
Blanket Scarf

Oh how I love a good scarf. I have many scarves from wool to lightweight cotton. I believe they make great accessories year round. I was overjoyed this fall when I saw that the larger sized plaid scarves were going to be one of the seasons top picks. My joy was initially short lived after it seemed like every blogger and her mother was rocking the larger sized plaid scarf….you know which one I’m talking about.

{#OurProject52} 2/52 – Morning

January 15, 2015

Am I a morning person? Depends on the day. My mornings vary depending on the day of the week but there is one staple to my mornings. We often miss the school bus and some days I don’t feel like rigging my bootleg coffee machine, and two days a week my neighbor takes my daughter to school but there is one morning activity that I do at least 98% of the time.

I know you read the title and thought it is nearly freezing outside why would anyone be thinking about gardening but I’m here to tell you I am starting to plan out my garden for this year. Last year was my first year and I had a great yield. I poorly documented it as life got in the way but we saw tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, strawberries, scallions, green beans, and a baby watermelon amongst a few spices  grow right on our deck.

{OOTD} Mixed Leopard Print

January 9, 2015
Mixed- Prints

It’s kind of sad how little I get out of the house some weeks other than carpool and the usual errands. I picked up a few clients and am really now a WAHM instead of a moonlighting one so the leisure I once had to come and go as I please has been replaced with more structure, meaning I don’t really get dressed up like I used to.

Yesterday I took a trip to Target and decided that at LEAST once a week I would put on real clothes and attempt to look decent.
