Saturday fun and savings (ends today)

I joined a fun blog hop today that is being hosted by Kimberly over at her blog: Diary of a Brown Eyed Girl. I am excited to say that I gained a couple more followers, and started following a few new blogs, thanks to this event. Thanks, Kimberly!

I've also made some more design updates to my blog! I changed my About Me picture in the sidebar. I also added a Contact or Sponsor page, where you can purchase ad space on my blog. All ads are free with use of promo code. The ad runs through a site called Passionfruit and it as very easy to use and set up the ad with step-by-step instructions on their website, and they are rotated every time you refresh my blog.

I'm also trying to make some connections in the blogging world. I joined the link up for Southern BloggersThe Lady Bloggers Society, and am waiting to hear back about Bigs and Littles Blogging Network.

I couldn't make it in to any LOFT store today but I ordered the dress I was considering for my graduation and party, which I shared in this post, and also a pair of capris in Pebble Brown. I ended up spending over $50 so I expect my savings cards to come in the mail with the dress and capris. Hope both items fit! I will give a review of them when they arrive.

For my fellow Target-obsessed individuals, I had an email this week with a promo code: bogo50. Enter this code in your shopping cart to receive half off a purchase of shoes or a handbag with the purchase of one pair of shoes or a handbag at full price. I just now realized as I am writing this email that the code expires today at midnight! I am now eyeing the following shoes.

one. two. three. four

Which pair is your favorite?

  1. The quote is so true! Hope you have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks, Heidi! With my soon-to-be career as a school counselor, I'm all about the inspirational/motivational quotes. I'm going to have a difficult time deciding on only a handful or so to post in my office!

  2. The second pair is definitely my favorite. Gah. If only I hadn't spent a ridiculous amount of money yesterday, haha.

    1. Ever since I saw that awesome pair of shoes in the store, I've looked through my closet every couple of days trying to figure out what I could pair them with. It's one of those pairs where I don't think I will ever find another that compares!
