Styling Hair With Lilla Rose + A Giveaway

I was given this product to share with you my full and honest review, all opinions are my own.

As a girl mom of 8+ years now I have learned a few valuable lessons. #1 pink is a neutral color #2 Any girl past the age of 3 looks awkward in leggings and a shirt that doesn’t cover her bottom (unless she is at the gym), and #3 the more girls you have, the more time you will spend fixing (and sweeping up) hair. 

We are a house full of different hair types. Emily has amazing curls, Marissa has thick blonde locks with highlights some women pay big bucks for, and I have long, dark, boring hair with no time to fuss over it. We all have our own routines, products, and go to hair styles that vary but recently I found something that works for all of us, the Lilla Rose Flexi Clip


When I was asked to review the flexi clip my first thought was what in the world is it? After a little browsing through Lizzie’s online store and some video watching it didn’t take long to convince me I needed to add a clip to my accessories. Lilla Rose offers a clip for every occasion in several sizes meaning you are sure to find the perfect clip for you. The hardest part was narrowing my choices down and choosing a favorite.

And trust me when I say they are every bit as beautiful in person as they are online, because they are.

My next big question was how did they work? Were they easy to put in? And most importantly would it slip? It seems like every product I try slips! After watching the sizing video online It was easy to see how simple these clips are to put in. And even better news is they don’t move. I wore my clip for hours the first day before I even realized that I hadn’t adjusted it once. I was sold!


Since receiving my Lilla Rose Clip it has been worn constantly. Marissa and I love wearing our hair half up with it. It is the perfect way to get our hair out of our faces, and still wear our hair down. My size small clip is also perfect for giving Emily a tails up style that looks amazing with her curls and makes her feel just like a princess.

I definitely see some more Lilla Rose Clips in our future.

Blog Birthday Celebration & Giveaway, Tuesday Talk V9

Two years ago on March 5th, 2014, this little corner of the blogging world became mine. I think back on the beginning and I am left dumbfounded. I never imagined this space would introduce me to some of the most amazing, supportive friends a girl could ask for and become an outlet, a ministry and a source of income for our family.
It has been an amazing two years.

Part of the fun of growing is looking back.

I wrote 283 posts over the past year.
Gained nearly 1,000 followers on Instagram.
Tripled my follower on Bloglovin & Twitter.
And have almost doubled my followers on  Pinterest & Facebook.
My page views have nearly tripled as well.

So I really feel like I need to say a big huge thank you!
You are what makes this so much fun and worth celebrating











And it turns out I’m not the only one celebrating…

Beth @ Our Pretty Little Girls

Courtney @ Sweet Turtle Soup

Whitney @ Work it Mommy

When I found out two of my favorite bloggers were also celebrating blog birthdays this week, I knew we needed to celebrate together and what says celebration like a giveaway?! We each donated one item we love for each year that we have been blogging and one lucky winner will take it all.

 A Pioneer Woman Cookbook, Chocolates, $10 to Target, Essie polish, Bat & Body Lotion, $5 to Starbucks and an infinity scarf.

Thank you, thank you, thank you  for another great year! I can’t wait to see how things continue to grow over the next year.

Chocolate & Wine Moments #ASweetPairing Giveaway

One thing I have learned to embrace in my 30’s is my down time.
 You know, those times in life that give you the perfect chance to sit back, relax and enjoy a glass of wine and some chocolate. Today I want to share with you a few of my favorite chocolate & wine moments. And to make things even sweeter, we are throwing in a giveaway too! I would like to say a huge thanks Josh Cellars wine, Ghirardelli Chocolate, who are so kindly sponsoring today post. I have had so much fun working with and sampling their amazing products. All opinions in this post are my own. 
My Chocolate and Wine moments…
The end of a long day
We’ve all been there you come home your tired worn out and when you finally sit down you just want to relax. Which basically translates to every single Monday night in my house.
Girls Night
Chocolate, wine and girls nights are the perfect combo.
In fact I just so happen to be attending one later this week. Can’t wait!
The Perfect Gift
Hostess gift, house warming gift, anniversaries & birthday presents!
The occasions that you could and should gift wine and chocolates go on forever.
Date Nights In
Date nights out aren’t always an option but date nights in, that we can do. Put the kids to bed a bit early maybe make a late dinner and sit by the fire with some wine and chocolate. You don’t have to go out to date your spouse.
Dinner Party
Who is my favorite dinner party guest?! The one who shows up with a bottle of wine. 
If you bring chocolate along too I might invite you over every single week.
Just because
Do you always need a reason to indulge a little? I think not!
Valentines Day
And the epitome of all of the wine and chocolate moments comes down to Valentines Day!
From Galentines parties, to romantic evenings, dinners, presents and surprises. I think every Valentines Day would be a little better with #ASweetPairing like Josh Cellars wine and Ghirardelli Chocolate (both available at Walmart). Dark & Strawberry chocolate squares & a smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, are simply perfection. 
Make sure you pick some for your celebrating this week.
Now for the added bonus, your chance to win!
Josh Cellars Wine and Ghirardelli Chocolate are giving you a chance to win one of two $75 prepaid American Express gift-cards. Entries vary from following along on twitter, pinning images to sharing your own wine and chocolate moments on Instagram. The more you enter the better your chances are to win so spread the love!
Tell me about your favorite chocolate & wine moments.

$250 Paypal Cash Giveaway!

I’ve said it before and I will say it again, I am not a fan of resolutions.

 In fact I kind of feel like if you want to be sure that you fail at something, make it a resolution.
I wonder if  backwards resolutions would work.

I resolve to eat too many cookies.

I resolve to have a messy house.
I resolve to barely get any sleep.

I highly doubt this approach will be effective but given my past, who knows!

Where it seems the resolution train isn’t so popular lately, I do know many of us, including myself, are working on goals.

I love goals!

And what better way to equip you to meet some of your goals than $250 cash?!

*Some new work out gear for the gym.
*Money to fund those date nights.
*Supplies for those projects.
*Extra income in the budget to save, pay off debt or stash for a family trip.

The options are pretty much endless.

Now here is how you can win!
