Happy Birthday Giveaway

Not only is there a coupon code for this weekend, but I thought I should go all out with the gifts since it's such a momentous birthday for me! Thirty feels like a good number when it comes to "officially" entering adulthood, right? You've had a few years experience in the work field and are steadily paying bills by the time your thirties roll around. Some are thinking about starting families, are just starting families, or are growing bigger families. Why not a little giveaway for one of my favorite outfits of all time, especially when Spring is just around the corner?

The ever darling White and Cream Reversible Top with Front Bow Detail and Leopard Print Double Ruffle Bloomer Bubble Shorts are up for one very lucky person! I absolutely love this little outfit, it is so classic and charming. Doesn't it just put you in the mood for warmer days playing around with your little papoose? Look for your chance to enter below with a winner to be chosen on Monday, March 2! Good luck!

Celebratory Coupon Code

I am celebrating my 30th birthday this weekend! I thought I would be a little sad leaving my twenties behind, but I've always heard that people are more sure of themselves in their thirties. I definitely feel more relaxed in my own skin and don't feel connected to the twenty-something lifestyle anymore. My sister and nieces are coming down to help me pass the day, and then we will all be in church on Sunday for my little papoose's baby dedication. It's going to be one busy, loud weekend!

To help celebrate the occasion, I am offering 30% off on all purchases through this weekend only. Simply enter coupon code "Thirty30" when checking out for an amazing deal that ends Sunday night. Check out all the goods and pick out some of your favorites while they're on sale!
Look, there goes my youth! Oh, and a coupon code!

Blue Lagoon Ruffle Dress

Finding time to work on my sewing to-do list and still taking care of the little papoose is something I still haven't mastered yet, two months into the endeavor. You would think that working whenever she naps is the trick that everyone I know seems to use, yet whenever I move to put her down, she wakes up. I really only manage to work after she's gone to bed for the night, and even then it's hit or miss if I actually want to work because it's so late and I really just want to crawl into bed and zone out! When I am productive, it's only for about two hours max  before I throw in the towel, so you see my problem.

I have been working on a new dress though (for the past two weeks) whenever I can, and it's finally finished instead of laying around in pieces. It's part of the pirate-inspired Marooned Mayhem collection that still has several items which are not sewn and finished. I'll work on those later. Maybe. Hopefully. Like the entire collection, this dress has such beautiful fabrics, and I think it turned into a dramatic little piece full of ruffles and personality. The electric blue definitely pops against the dark damask fabric.

My Little Valentine

I hope everyone has a delightful and memorable Valentine's Day that is filled with lots of sweet kisses! I will be stealing as many as I can get from these chubby cheeks that look like they are little cream puffs. Special thanks to Christy over at Thrifty Vintage Kitten for the adorable outfit that is perfect today!
