Lots and Lots of News!!

Top: Lauren Conrad for Kohl's | Shorts: TJ Maxx | Shoes: Lukcy Brand | Necklace: F21 | Bracelets: Giveaway win & F21

 I have lots to share with everyone today. 

Let's start with the outfit first. So, I have been searching high and low for a pair of lace shorts that were a moderate length. I just can't wear super short shorts anymore. I am getting too damn old for that. Well, as you can see, I found some. Not only is the length perfect, but the high waist hides the muffin tops! Total score! The price gets a big, golden trophy too. They were only $14.99 at TJ Maxx. I grabbed three different sizes to try on because I didn't want to take any chances of someone else snagging them. Call me greedy. I am in love with the color and went with a monochromatic look today. Sometimes, there isn't any need for  bold and brights.


Next on the agenda is the winner of the Glamour Me Jewels Giveaway. The lucky lady who will be receiving the black and gold chain link bracelet is....Andrea from The Blonde Ambitions. Thanks to all who entered. Don't fret if you didn't win. Go enter the giveaway going on right now! It's a doozie!


Onto more news, I have taken over Laura's blog, Beauty & the Beard, today. I adore this girl and am a faithful reader of her blog. She is the sweetest and cutest. She just finished gallivanting on a huge road trip and now she off camping in the woods somewhere. Laura, come back soon, okay!?



Now for the MOST important news. I have decided to start accepting sponsors on the blog. There are four different sizes to choose from and each one will run for 30 days. As soon as you submit an ad and it's approved, it will start showing up immediately. Click on the sponsor tab above if you have the slightest interest. I am super excited about this, but FREAKING OUT at the same time. We will see what happens. I would love to have you and grow our blogs together!


One last thing, don't forget to enter the JEWELIQ Reader's Choice Giveaway. Ladies, if you haven't entered yet, go do it now! I promise, it's worth a few clicks!



 I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. Be safe. Be happy. Be back Monday!

Cheers!

beautiful!!! love those shorts! I am currently attempting to add lace to a pair of shorts I thrifted and I believe I will be spending more than $15. bummer! and yours are WAY cuter! I'm excited that you started accepting sponsors - I've been thinking about the same thing - but am a little nervous about it!

I love how you styled the lace shorts! I just got myself a pair yesterday and now I'm trying to figure out what to wear them with.

So exciting that you're accepting sponsors! I recently started taking them as well. Have a great weekend, Shanna!

You look amazing and I am loving those shorts.

I've been very happy with Invisalign so far. I have to wear them for 8 months. They come in trays, like teeth whitening trays, and you swap out the trays every two weeks.

I like that the trays are light and comfortable (compared to traditional braces). You have to take them out to eat. I tried to eat with the trays on and it felt really weird. My dentist advised that I eat without them on and then brush and floss immediately after. It's become routine for me to have a toothbrush and toothpaste everywhere, so it's no big deal.

You also can't drink anything with the trays on except water. That's kind of annoying, because I have to take them out to drink coffee, but I think the minor annoyances are worth it for straight teeth.

I'm in love with your lace shorts--seriously so cute and now I feel like I have to go to TJMaxx, except I know I'm way too old for them! I'm fine with not winning the giveaway since Andrea is pretty sweet. If you could kindly make sure I win the next one, I'd greatly appreciate it! p.s. we need to plan a shopping trip. It would be loads of fun but I fear will shop ourselves out of house and home. Have a lovely weekend lovely lady!
