Live Pretty on a Penny: May 2013

A Little Pillow Talk

Friday, May 10, 2013

Blogging has provided me with the opportunity to interact with some wonderful people! Many, many thanks to all of my readers and supporters!

Another great thing is some of the true friends that I have met. One in particular is my friend Brandi with Don't Disturb this Groove. A couple weeks ago, Brandi and her super nice husband stopped by my house for a small cookout with family and friends. Brandi being one of the sweetest people I know, was kind enough to bring me a hostess gift that fits perfectly in my girl's cave.


Isn't it the cutest thing?! Oh and did I mention that Brandi makes these by hand! Yes, they are handmade one of a kind adorable pillows and I am in love with it.

It looks so perfect in the space, so enough talking, let's take a looksie...


So thanks so much to my friend Brandi! I am so happy to have met her. I have learned so much from her in such a short time and I am so grateful. When you get a chance, check out her blog! You will loooove it! This girl is so talented and her pictures....OMG...they are perfection!




Excuse me while I TRY to keep it all together!

This is truely how I feel sometimes. Blogging had been put on the backburner because life has been kicking my butt!!! I have been so busy between work, weekend social obligations, my makeup business, maintaining home, and drafting essays for entry into grad school, that I feel like the lady above. I just want to scream! AAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!

Okay, thats sooo much better. Thanks for letting me vent. The good news is that my application is complete and submitted, so keeps your fingers and toes crossed for me! Another dose of goodness is that my makeup business has taken off and has been keeping me quite busy. I show alot of before and afters on Instagram so come on over and follow me.

Enough excuses, I have several posts in draft mode, so I will definitely be back real soon. I am also looking for some dining room chairs to makeover, hopefully I will have some good ole' luck with that.

I just wanted to check-in and let you know that I am still out here and doing well. It has just been a crazy last few months.

Love you guys and I will be back later this week with a post! Pinky swear!
