I’m so excited to tell you about a super cute jewelry shop run by Mina called Papelline. The thing that I love about her jewelry is the simplicity of it. The items are dainty and light, and I can imagine so comfortable to wear that you forget you even have them on until someone tells you how fabulous your jewelry is.

Mina says,

Hello! I’m Mina, and I love anything and everything simple and pretty. I’m a nurse by day, crafter by night, a mom and wife 24/7, a dreamer always <3 Everything in this shop is carefully handcrafted by me, from choosing the materials, production, packaging, and shipping. Each piece is designed with beauty, versatility and simplicity in mind, perfect for everyday wear!

The name “Papelline” (pah-pel-leen”) came from my love of crafts in my younger years, particulary paper crafts (stationery, gift wrapping, ribbons, stickers, etc). “Papel” is Fililpino word for “paper”, and I’ve always dreamt of owning a pretty paper supplies store (or something similar) for as long as I can remember. But my love for jewelry-making is stronger and much harder to deny. So in April of 2014, with encouragement from my husband, son, family, and dear friends, I opened my little shop, and named it “Papelline” ♥.

Aren’t they beautiful? I need that blue Adeline necklace for sure. It’s 20mm stunner and needs to be mine.

Today I’m excited to share about a business that just opened earlier this year and is full of super cute clothing and accessories for women. It’s called Happy Chic Boutique and is owned by Christy.

shift-dressChristy sent me this super cute Colorful Sift Dress. One of the things that I love about this dress is that it’s lined, so I don’t have to worry about wearing a slip or being self conscious about it being see through. It’s comfortable and kinda funky with the loose sleeves. It’s perfect for the days we’ve been having this past week where the temps for July are lower than normal. So fun! Isn’t it so fun?

These are some of my other favorites from the shop. happy-chicso vibrant dress // over the rainbow maxi // multi chevron infinity scarf

One of my favorite things about Happy Chic Boutique are the prices – nearly every dress is under $30. Which is perfect because Happy Chic Boutique is giving one of you a $25 gift certificate for anything in the shop! You could get a dress, a couple accessories or a few tops. So many possibilities because the prices are so great! You can visit Happy Chic Boutique via the links below and be sure to enter through the rafflecopter app below as well.

I’m so excited to tell you today about Kilee and her new business. Some of you know her on Instagram as onelittlemomma and her belt business One Little Belt. I’m super excited to tell you about her newest venture – Nickel & Suede.

nickelandsuedelogoNickel & Suede is a shop full of wonderful accessories, most made of leather. From their website:

Kilee is a style and DIY blogger who will often alter an existing item or make something herself to get just the right look. One Saturday while getting dressed, she was looking for the right color of gold earring; everything she owned was too yellow. She remembered she had picked up a piece of gorgeous gold textured leather the week before and thought maybe it would work for earrings. She traced her favorite pair of silver teardrop earrings and cut them out.

OLB5As she attached the hooks, she could see that the look was perfect; what she didn’t expect was that they felt even better than they looked! The leather was so lightweight, flexible, and comfortable. They didn’t pull on her ears, cut into her neck, or even make a sound. Soon, Kilee started wearing these leather earrings exclusively. When she realized she was even wearing them to mow the lawn because she couldn’t even feel them, she knew she was onto something.

In 2013, Kilee started selling leather earrings and eventually leather cuffs, which had also been spontaneously created as the perfect accessory to one of her outfits. Her business expanded from leather belts for babies and toddlers into leather accessories to keep women feeling stylish and comfortable for everything from errand runs to date nights.

n&s3I was sent this amazing pair of weathered turquoise earrings in size 2.5″ – aren’t they fabulous? I love how light they are, despite being leather. The leather is so soft and I hardly notice them when I’m wearing them. Kilee sent them on a really unique wooden earring card in a Nickel and Suede jewelry box. Every detail was so well thought out. I’m so impressed and can’t wait to get my own slit leather cuff!

Today’s giveaway celebrates DAD! I’m teaming up with Jill from Sweet Sycamore to give away two awesome products that celebrate the man in your life. 

SweetSycRectangleFrom Jill: I’ve always been that person who has to make things, huddled in the corner with a stash of paper products and decorative scissors, glue flying (I love the smell of craft glue…just a little perk). Sweet Sycamore, my graphic design business, specializes in custom artwork for your home. It is a celebration of the friendship that has grown with my little laptop after a college degree and many years worth of graphic design classes. Now fonts are the boss of me and I love my laptop so much I want to roast s’mores for it and tuck it in at night. Sometimes I do. The s’mores are always still there in the morning. What’s up with that?

Our fine art prints are designed, printed and hand packaged right here in our little studio. With modern lines and fresh colors, our custom prints celebrate the beauty of simplicity, helping you to Make Home Yours. I hope you stop by often. {You can also follow Sweet Sycamore on Instagram and Facebook.}

IMG_0484We’ve teamed up for an awesome giveaway and hope that you love these as much as we do!

Jill is giving away her super awesome Dad print shown above (8×10 or 11×14 size) and I’ll be giving away the newest Hashtag Key Chain. One winner will get both prizes! Enter via the Rafflecopter App below.

{Disclosure: I was sent a pair of moccs for free to review for this post. My thoughts are my own and are my honest feelings about the product.}

Hey you! It’s the 4th Wednesday of the month which means it’s giveaway time! Are you excited? Because I am!

Freshly Picked 1 By now, most of you have seen the show Shark Tank and some have even seen the owner of Freshly Picked, Susan, make a deal on the show. If you don’t already know the business Freshly Picked, they make fabulous moccasins for babies and young children. Their moccasins are wildly popular while still being made which extreme care. I love Susan’s story of how she started her business – having a dream and a solution to a problem and doing whatever it took to make it happen.

Freshly Picked 2 Freshly Picked sent me a pair of moccasins to review and they’ve also generously given me the opportunity to give a pair away in the recipients choice of size and color. WOOT!

Freshly Picked 4 Unfortunately my children are too big for the moccasins so I was able to give them to a friend to try out and live vicariously through her. We loved how easy they were to get on because of the elastic and how soft the leather is. My favorite thing about the color that I chose is the way that they sparkle in the sun. They’re simply beautiful and even though this pair was a little bit big (completely my fault not knowing the size), they stayed on Baby E’s feet so well.

How adorable is Baby E in these moccasins? I so wish I had a little one small enough to wear the moccasins because they’re so fabulous.

You can enter to win below via the Rafflecopter app.

(The deets: the giveaway will run from April 23-30, 2014. The winning entry will be verified. The winner will receive one pair of Freshly Picked moccasins in the color and size of their choice to be mailed by Freshly Picked.)
