Worst. Blogger. Ever. & an Etsy Special!

Guys, I am so sorry for how much I seriously suck at blogging. I haven't blogged in like 2 weeks? I've really been focusing on school especially since it's almost over with! Thank goodness. May 16th I believe is my last day. Unless my professors decide to end Spring Semester a few days early :D

On a happier note, I hit 100 followers recently! I just want to tell you all thank you! I just started this blog in January and am still trying to keep up with posting on a regular basis which I am horrible at right now.

I've also been quite busy with my Design Etsy shop. The business has really picked up and I couldn't be happier about it because it is something that I truly am LOVING! I'm having a monthly special that started yesterday!

Click Here to be directed to Etsy!

This coming month I am going to be running around like crazy guys.. I'm dog sitting for three different people, a couple days of which I will be doing two at a time while also working, going to school and fulfilling orders. Ahhh! I like a good challenge though ;) 

This was short & sweet but I promise I will blog more!

Pinners Be Crazy

I came across this site through Arvee over at Flutter Happy just today and was in awe at the things people comment on, on Pinterest! I never thought Pinterest of all places would be a place of hate and negative comments. But IT IS! 

I never thought you could post a picture of a sexy, curvy woman and get people bashing on her, saying she "looks like a hippo" or "she's enormous". Come on people. If you don't like it, then don't look at it! It's that simple! Same thing with an image of tasteful nudity. People "don't want to see that here". Pinterest is a place to pin what YOU are inspired by. It's like a diary or a safe keeping of things you want to go back and look at to be inspired by. If people have a problem with something that YOU pinned on YOUR board, then they shouldn't be following you. Simple as that. 

Go check out this site for yourself. You'll be shocked at the things people say.

And thank you Kate from For Me - For You blog for creating this Tumblr site!

Friday's Fancies - Flower Power.

It's officially Spring here in the desert! You can definitely feel it during the day. 80 degree weather, I love you! Although I'm not going to be very happy when it gets any warmer. You see, I'm not a Summer person at all. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE pool season and the Summer break from school but it gets HOT here. I'm talking 120 degrees in the middle of July, hot. It's not a good time. You get in your car to go drive 15 minutes with your AC cranked and it will barely be cool by the time you get to your destination. Spring and Fall are definitely my favorite seasons.

How hot does it get where you live? We are lucky though, we don't have that gross humidity. It's a very dry heat,  so you've got to drink like 8 gallons of water a day. It's ridiculous.

Today's Friday's Fancies is Flower Power! Thank you to AV from Long Distance Loving for linking everyone up! The flowers popping up lately are just beautiful! I wish they'd stay that way forever!

By the way, I AM buying that Fossil tote bag! It ships from UK though  :( $25 shipping! I actually didn't think of looking to see if the U.S carries it.. silly me.

I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and enjoy the lovely weather!

PS! > Today is the last day to enter in my GiVEAWAY! It will close tonight at midnight! 
Good Luck & May The Odds Be Ever In Your Favor ;)

Best Movie of 2012 Thus Far

If you haven't seen The Hunger Games yet, you're definitely missing out. When I first heard about the movie I didn't know much at all about it. All I knew is that two kids were selected to go to 'war' and by war I thought of something completely different. My mom had read the book and wanted to go see it so I agreed to go. I was never dying to see it like most people but I knew I'd eventually see it. Man, was it an amazing movie or WHAT!? I was literally on the edge of my seat. You NEED to go see this movie if you haven't already. I'm going to start the second book this week hopefully, when I find the time. I didn't read the first book but my mom said that it follows the movie to a T. The second book is called Catching Fire and once you see the movie, you'll know why they named it that.

On another note, my giveaway that the lovely Aunie is hosting for me, starts tomorrow! If you don't follow Aunie already, you're missing out! She is an inspiration and such a sweetheart! Anyway, I will also have a link to enter on my blog as well as on hers! There will be quite a few different ways to enter so stay tuned!

I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday! Not the best day of the week obviously :( But let's make the best of it!
