Homemade Cotton Candy

Jul 31, 2013

This week I was able to make my own cotton candy. At home! I never really thought that could happen. I can't wait to make some for my next party (or to bring to another party. Everyone would love that).
The LA Shop sent me this cheap and easy-to-use cotton candy maker. It works great! I will have to say that the directions were a bit confusing to follow, but other than that the process was easy peasy. It came with it's own sugars in seven flavors. I tried the blue-raspberry one and it was delicious.
I had never heard of The LA Shop before but now that I've browsed through their site, I've found that they have many unique and random products. One of my favorites is their photography equipment. They have everything a professional photographer would have. They also have a ton of gardening equipment, which is on sale right now (yippee!)
I'll definitely be making more cotton candy soon. It would be seriously soooo cute if I made mini cotton candy on lollipop sticks, don't you think?

The Biggest Design Sale Ever!

Jul 25, 2013

This Summer, I've had a lot of time on my hands. So I thought, why not take that time to make really cool web designs for really cheap? It's a win-win!
I've put together two design packages for your Blogger blog that are only $20 and $35! I love bringing affordable designs to bloggers, because let's face it, $400 for a design just isn't worth it. So if you're looking for a quick blog facelift or a complete makeover, I'd love to help you out.
This sale starts July 28th and ends August 25th. As long as you get your purchase in before Aug. 25th, you're good to go!
A cute but functional blog design catches the eye and keeps the readers reading. I'd say it's one of the most important things about a blog, besides the content, of course. :)

Psych Gifts!

Jul 13, 2013

A few days ago, it was my birthday.
Now, it's no big secret that I'm a HUGE Psych fan. I even decided to have a Psych themed birthday party. So of course my family got me Psych-related gifts. Be prepared for the awesomeness...
Oh yeah, this just happened. A Carlton Lassiter talking bobble head! "I'm gonna crack her like a bad back."
Some wall decals of Shawn and Gus, plus some of their ever so popular lines.
A Psych magnetic poetry set! You know, like those little word magnets? But they're even cooler, because they spell out Psych quotes.
Thanks for all the birthday wishes on Facebook!

Cincinnati Necklace!

Jul 3, 2013

Last night I flew back from Cincinnati, Ohio. I can't wait to share all of my pics with you guys!
While I was gone, this adorable necklace I won from Oh So Antsy arrived:
I love the idea behind Jessica's shop. She sells state and country necklaces that 'tell your story'. In my case, I used to live in Ohio and it is a special place to me. It was a fun thing to get right after I got back from Cincinnati! Thank you so much, Jessica! (head on over and check out her shop)

Time to go settle down with a movie and 600 photos to edit ;)

Birthday Wish List

Jul 2, 2013

Right now I'm all about vintage cameras! I would love to start a collection sometime, if I could only get my hands on some. lol :) And check out that plant pot! Pretty much best thing ever. With my birthday being a week away, I thought it would be fun to put together some of the things that I've dreamed of buying but never actually have. Aren't they pretty? ;)
