Sponsor Spotlight | The Lady Lawyer

Meet Brittany  The Lady Lawyer This is Brittany and she’s the lady behind The Lady Lawyer blog. I had the pleasure to ask her 5 questions and here are answers. 1.Describe your blog and why did you start blogging? I started blogging because of how much I genuinely enjoyed reading other blogs. I work as an attorney and read and write all day long..but as you can imagine it’s about boring and serious issues. The blog has allowed me to really harvest my interests and passions into a creative outlet that I love! While my blog is very new I would describe it as a lifestyle blog that targets issues that young career women face. I talk about fashion and work wardrobe trends, advice such as interviewing and writing a proper thank you note, and mostly just what’s going on in my life.   2. What are some of your favorite things about blogging? Hands down my favorite and most surprising aspect of blogging that I have found are the relationships with other women bloggers I’ve already developed. I imagine the blogging world as being this intense world of cat fighting but it is so far from the opposite. I’ve…

Mother’s Day Ideas

Mother’s Day is around the corner, more like 4 days away. I did a post last month on a wish list. But today I’m going to share with you some ideas to do with your mother. Mother’s Day Ideas:  Make her breakfast: As a mom I love waking up to a warm breakfast made by my boys. I use to do this for my mommy when I lived with my parents and she loved it. Go on pinterest they have a lot of ideas for breakfast. Buy Flowers: Ask your mom (if you don’t know) what her favorite flowers are and get them. She will love that. via WeHeartIt Brunch/Dinner: If you’re like me every now and then I prefer getting taken to my favorite restaurant instead of getting presents. Jewelry: Who doesn’t love jewelry. I know I love them. Go on Etsy and find something meaningful. The Lady Lawyer has a Jewelry Giveaway happening right now. Favorite Candy: My mom dislikes chocolate. So we never get her any but I on there other hand LOVE IT. Hershey kisses with almonds, mini Snickers, and M & M’s. Yum. Spa Day: I have yet to get this or do this for…

Sponsor Spotlight | Coffee + Glitter

Today we’re meeting Sarah from Coffee & Glitter. I had the pleasure to ask Sarah 5 questions and these were her answers. 1. Describe your blog and why did you start blogging? I am the epitome of “third time’s a charm” when it comes to blogging. I launched my first blog at the end of my first year in college (2010) “Bombshelled Glitter” I posted here and there but I really didn’t put much into it as I was living the college dream. I didn’t think much of it and ended up putting that blog on the very, very back burner. Once I started teaching in 2013, I launched another blog “Juice Boxes and Glitter” This blog I really did put a lot into. I kept up with it frequently and posted at least three times a week. Well, at the beginning of 2015, I decided to take the year off from teaching to go back to school and travel. That is where “Coffee&Glitter” started…clearly, glitter is a thing in my life. Anyways, I felt like it was more appropriate to launch a lifestyle blog to track the events of this year instead of flooding my teacher friends blog feeds…

May Goals

Today marks the first day of May. How exciting is that? Summer is around the corner and I’m so happy about that.  With it being a new month lets see how what last months goals were and see what I accomplished. April Goals: 1. Save money- I want to at least save $300 this month to make sure that we have money to spend this summer. 2. Work out – Even if it’s sit ups, jumping jacks, push ups, planks, etc… 3. Drink more water – I’ve been slacking at drinking water.  4. Go to a farmers market. 5. Plant flowers on my balcony.  6. Get a small balcony table/chair set. 7. Try and make a few different dishes that I haven’t made.  8. Stop eating out. I want to make sure that this month I don’t go out and eat. I want to make meals at home instead. 9. Get a new bedding set for my bed. Spring colors!!! 10. New wall art for my living room. I’m surprised that I was able to drink more water last month. I have a problem with drinking soda. Lol Finally planted some flowers. They’re planted in the seed starters so hopefully they…

Shows to Watch on Netflix

Since I’ve been out of work and I stay home with Landon. I’ve been able to do Netflix binges. Lately I’ve been trying to catch up with shows that are current on tv right now and I have so many shows to catch up and so many seasons that it’s so hard to do it all. Lol But right now these are my current to watch. I need to finish this last season. So much has happened and I’m like mad at myself for not finishing it. According to this post on E! Online ABC is canceling this show. So sad to hear that. I got so hooked when I watched the first few episode of season 1 and now I’m on season 2 and I need to finish that so I can catch up with the current season on tv. Although I’m going to have to wait until it comes on Netflix. I watched the first season and I stopped because I couldn’t understand it but I’m going to try it again. How many seasons are there of this show? I’ve never watched this show. I see/hear good things about this show. I need to get on it. Supernatural –…

Sponsor Spotlight | Because I Said So

  Today we’re going to be meeting the girl behind “Because I Said So“. I had the pleasure to ask Allison 5 questions and these were her answers.1. Describe your blog and why did you start blogging? Because I Said So is a collection of my thoughts on the people in my life and things that I love; basically my life according to me. I write about my family, work/life experiences as a 20 something, and my dreams and goals. Some topics you can find on the blog are: wedding planning (my job), braces (my life), and my fur child (family). It’s a whole lot of chaos wrapped up with a pretty pink bow! I started blogging almost out of boredom. I had just graduated college and was looking for a job–a seemingly never ending task. My dad suggested that I start a blog to keep my writing skills sharp, and Because I Said So was born! 2. What are some of your favorite things about blogging? Favorite things about blogging: doing the photo shoots (I love getting my sisters and sometimes boyfriend, Josh to be the photographers!) I’ve also loved getting to know other bloggers in the almost THREE…
