"Think pretty dresses, cute bubbles, and dapper shortalls. Think seersucker gingham and stripe fabrics with clean classic smocking and a touch of whimsy. Think cool cotton sweaters with hand crocheted designs for those crisp spring mornings. Think all the most colorful play clothes from the Little English separate collection which are perfect for monogramming."

The Vintage Pearl Giveaway



The Vintage Pearl has been one of those brands that you see everywhere in blogland.  I have entered I don't know how many giveaways to try and win one of their treasures, but have had no luck.  You can understand my excitement when they offered a review and giveaway opportunity for my blog!  It was really hard to choose one of their pieces.  These were some of my favorites:




I finally decided on this eclectic charm bracelet:


When the bracelet came I was actually really surprised at the quality of it.  The sterling silver chain was really solid and sterling silver charms were too.  They are definitely high quality products and every word was flawlessly hand-stamped.  

These pieces are not only high quality, but really special and unique - the perfect gift for a special woman in your life.  They also have great gifts for any man in your life too.  Take a look at some of these:



The Vintage Pearl has generously offered one of my readers a $50 gift credit to their shop!

To enter the giveaway first go and take a look at Vintage Pearl and tell me what your favorite piece is.

Dream House: Master Bedroom

Number one priority for me in my dream master bedroom: a big, super comfy bed.  I love canopy beds, but it that is not that important to me.  From these images you can see my love for crisp, fluffy, white bedding.


I also wouldn't mind a room with a view:

Jay Graham Designer

Love this color combo:


I would stay in bed all Saturday morning if this was mine:

via Coastal Living

via Delight by Design

I love this wooden headboard:

via House Beautiful


I also love simple, cushy, tufted headboards:


Comfy bay windows are my fave.  
Don't you want to go pick up that book and read there forever?


How do you like this big window:


Pretty little side tables are also a must-have:



And a sitting area wouldn't be too bad either:

Shirts to Make You Smile : Nacho Mama Tees




Nacho Mama Tees is one of the three sites that sell really fun and funny t-shirts that I got to review.

This is the Flux Capacitor t-shirt I got for the review for Nacho Mama Tees.  I actually got these shirts for my brother, who is both fun and funny, and I knew he would love them.  These are great gifts for the jokester of the family.

This one in particular is appreciated by Back to the Future Fans.  It is made from a light-weight cotton, as are the other 2 shirts.  The picture on the shirt is printed on it (not just a iron-on) so it will stay forever.  It is also a really great shade of blue. :)

Shirts to Make You Smile: Costume Squad


Costume Squad doesn't just sell funny t-shirts.  They also have some awesome costumes (it's never too early to get your Halloween costume, right?)


This is the Hadoken t-shirt from another video game called Streetfighter.  Of course I haven't heard of it before because I am not cool enough :)  Normally if a shirt had a picture this big on it I would worry about it wearing away and coming off soon, but since they print the logos directly on the shirts there is no need to worry.

This one is a "super soft tee" so the cotton is a little less stiff and even more comfortable.  It is also the same shape as the other two (not too boxy but not too tight either.)

Shirts to Make You Smile: Crazydog Tshirts



I have seen Crazy Dog Tshirts all over blogland lately.  They have some really cute and funny women's shirts that I loved too.




This "It's Dangerous to go Alone Take This shirt" is appreciated by Zelda fans.  I thought it was funny even without knowing which Nintendo game it came from.  Made with a lightweight cotton it is a nice-fitting shirt, not too boxy but not too skinny either.  My brother said that it was really comfortable, along with the other 2 shirts.

Spring Handbags

There are some awesome bags right now at The Sak and some really great colors for Spring.

I was so lucky to get to review this Silverlake Drawstring in Saffron:


Not only is it a great size (not too big but not too small) but it also has just enough pockets on the inside for your cell phone, lip-gloss, and a hidden pocket for girl stuff :)


You can carry it 2 ways since there are 2 shorter handles and one longer over-the-shoulder strap.


These other colors are so fun for Spring too:



Looks like a lot of these are sold out, but you can browse through some of their other bags to get some of the same pretty Spring colors (click to go to link):





Aren't they so fun?!
