***CLOSED***Shabby Apple Giveaway!


Shabby Apple welcomes you to great dresses that make dressing simple.

After years of not being able to find stylish dresses that covered enough skin to make you really feel comfortable (without wearing a tank top, cardigan or long slip), owners Emily and CK decided to do something about it.
They visited trade shows, marketplaces and designer studios only to discover the problem was not that department stores weren't buying the right dresses, but that designers weren't designing them.
Shabby Apple is proud to offer you fantastic dresses that allow you to look fabulous, without having to compromise anything else.

A return to what dresses were always meant to be — a one-piece outfit. No need to add tank tops, no cardigans, nothing (except accessories, of course!).

 I love the fact that Shabby Apple helps women out worldwide. Read more about it here-


Some of my favorites!

  Shabby Apple has a facebook page as well as a blog. Go check those out!


Shabby Apple is giving away the "Pretty in Pink dress" to one lucky winner!

Blush (your topless undershirt) DISCOUNT!!!!!

has generously offered readers of "THIS CRAZY LIFE" a discount of 20% off of 2 undershirts or more!

USE THIS CODE: welovebloggers

What is a topless undershirt, you ask? 
If you love the look of layering without adding the extra bulk and straps, this is a product for you. Unlike a tank top or long shirt, it does not have straps which cause your undershirt to constantly ride up. It stays put without having to always readjust. Without straps, you are not limited to where the length of your shirt falls. You can adjust to any length, whether you want it to go just over the top of your pants or all the way down to your thigh. For all your favorite shirts that have shrunk in the dryer, don't throw them away! Just add a {topless undershirt} and you still have the length of the shirt you bought it as.

****CLOSED****Tres Chic Boutique GIVEAWAY!!!

I am so honored to be able to host a giveaway from Tres Chic Boutique!

Check out some of the fabulous things you can get from Tres Chic Boutique.

I can picture myself in this outfit--

With this watch and purse-

Can't forget the perfume--
Now you can smell expensive for less! It's a steal!

 Speaking of that watch- It's the White Ceramic Rhinestone Watch 
and I got to REVIEW IT!!!!!!! Woot! Woot!

It came in today and I have to say that I am really impressed with it. It looks substantial on my wrist, but not overwhelming. It is solid and sturdy. It's definitely quality.
It blings!! There is no way you can go out and not have someone notice this watch! It's an eye catcher!
I have seen so many people wearing these white watches and now I have one!

 Here's a little info on the owner of Tres Chic Boutique-

I'm a girlie-girl, most importantly a stay-at-home mom, who just LOVES fashion and home decor!  Just call me....a Fashionista on a budget!  My friends and family are always asking where I got "this" and "that" whether it's a piece in my home, something I've made or something I'm wearing.  I decided it was time that I picked some of my favorite things to sell to all of you who are as passionate about your personal style as I am.   If you have any requests for something you'd like to see sold on my site, please let me know and I'll see what I can do.  Oh, and if you're wondering how to pronounce our french name it's like this:  tray-sheek-booteek, meaning "very chic boutique".
Tres Chic Boutique offers high-quality products for the lowest price possible.  My pieces are from lines I've bought from for years now and know are a great buy.  If you're a girl on a budget, you'll be thrilled with our prices.  My mission is for every woman to be able to afford to look fabulous!  And I'm the woman making it possible.
Happy Shopping!
xoxo, Summer

The purse is put together really well. Top quality. I was very impressed. I love the key fob too!

***CLOSED***Icings Prints GIVEAWAY!!! 5 WINNERS!

About the Owner of Icingsprints--

My name is Aislinn and I used to have a steady 8 to 5 corporate job... which more often is actually a 8 to 8 routine. This includes a desk, tons of post-its, a gazillion emails, and meetings that would make you forget what time it is. But my core passion is not Excel sheets or Powerpoint presentations, it's actually a little more bohemian: designing & photoshop. Designing in the side-lines is my way to relax and switch off.

When I moved to Vancouver last year, I found myself stripped off my hectic lifestyle and now I am again a student studying fashion. Work is so hard to find these days, and I know that one thing I can always turn back to, is my passion for putting together designs for etsy sellers. And so far, it has been a joy and great adventure to do so, and learn something new in every project.

I have no formal or informal training, I just happen to have a passion for experimenting with Photoshop. Let's just say I am a certified frustrated artist.

IcingsPrints was named after (semi-named after) me... My nickname is Ice, and when I was a child, people would mispronounce my name Aislinn to possibly everything that sounded like it: Ice Cream, icey, and icing. So yeah, call me narcissistic but brands ought to be a characteristic of your work aren't they?

I want my clients and my friends to associate my work as something that greatly compliments them, hence Icings. I want my work to be the "cherry on top", the "gravy to their steak" .

So for every project I receive... whether it's designing a business card, a logo, a postcard or photography projects, I slap on my Ipod and find within the grooves, my creative zen with hopes that I make someone happy.

My services range from creating affordable personalized & printable business cards, logo's, banners, ads, labels, tags, postcards, advertising, flyers....... I have even done random work on simple layout and photo editing. I have been told many times that my talent is in layout, color mixing, and composition. 
Very interesting! Her designs are interesting too!
Check these out!
Icings Prints is giving away 1 Digital business card design
to 5 winners!!!
BONUS: The first 3 to purchase a business package from Icings Prints will get 15% off! Just mention this giveaway. (only valid during giveaway)
