Making the switch & Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me (featured 5 ladies).

Hello everyone and welcome back to “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me.” Today I am sad to mention that there won’t be a link up attached to this post as this will be the last “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” with this blog (without the link up) but I had to include last weeks favorite five posts that were linked. This link up isn’t going anywhere however my blog is, that’s right hopefully after this week I will have my new domain and self-hosted blog. I already purchased the domain name, signed up with bluehost and await my designer to do the switch in the next few days, I am both excited and anxious about it,but I know this is God’s timing and the best thing for me. For those of you who have been following me forever, or even recently thank you so much for sticking with me and this blog, I can’t thank you enough for all your support, comments and encouragement but you will just have to come back tomorrow as I tell you why I am making the switch.
Now on to todays featured five ladies:
bloggerswhohave12

Kishina of @kishinaskurvykorner.blogspot.com linked up a lovely mix of print (stripes with leopard) for her St. Patricks Day outfit and I just love how she pulled it all together around the neon green pants too. You can check out her look further here.

Shauna of @lipglossandlace.com linked up probably the coolest, boldest and cutest outfit I have seen in awhile. Check out that bold t-shirt, pants and fenced barbed wire background. I think someone is trying to make a BOLD statement for sure. You can check out Shaunas bold look here.

bloggerswhohave13

Tina of @tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com posted a lovely outfit with her blanket cape in honor of St. Pattys day, but I love how she suggests to style the bright green hued sweater, you can check out her suggestion here. Doesn’t she look lovely by the way!?!

Tiffany of @brightonabudget.com celebrated a 1 year blogiversary along with St. Patty’s day. I just adored here way of celebrating both with green balloons and outfit. You can wish her a Happy 1 year of blogging here! I am sure happy for her.

Elizabeth of @allkindsofthingsblog.com linked up a recipe I actually pinned and tried Friday night for dinner and I would say it was a hit with everyone but our 6 year old (maybe it was the carrots and onions) but otherwise it was so delicious. I just love simple crock pot recipes, so thanks for sharing Elizabeth. See the recipe here.

Thank you for coming back by here today, I am sorry I couldn’t view your posts for today but if you really want me to check out your favorite posts just leave them in the comments below and I will drop by.

Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me link up

Welcome again to another “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” link up. As I type this up and begin to feature last weeks favorite five and post the link up button I just want to say thank you for your prayers and support on my post from yesterday (here). I am so grateful to meet so many of you. I am still battling with my emotions and am actually blogging away from home today and sitting in a coffee shop as I realize I need to take more time for “me” and if that means blogging away from home or doing errands away from my kids and family then heck I will take that opportunity to do so. It has been helpful and refreshing in a way.

Before I post todays link up I want to let you know that I recently gained one thousand plus followers on my Instagram account so I am doing a celebration giveaway here if you care to enter to win a set of jewelry from my friends business The Sparkle Exchange. Now on to todays featured five and link up.
bloggerswhohavecollage6
Shauna of @lipglossandlace.net linked up a fun dressed up casual weekend wear outfit and #bloggerproblems comment on her camera issues. See the post here to read more.

Jenny of @apocketfullofpolkadots.com linked up a simple outfit that layered with just the right accessories can turn a casual look to one of glam. (Despite what you might think Jenny, I love the outfit) you can read her post here.
bloggerswhohavecollage7
Nicole of @highlatitudestyle.com linked up a “how to style” post on layering correctly. I learned to layer for hiding spots on our body that we might want to hide versus flaunt when we don’t want it and based on body shape. You can read the post here.
Jill of @dousedinpink.blogspot.com linked up a post on how to style and wear camoflauge pants, from work wear to dressed up casual. Looking good Jill, I would have never thought to dress camo so well. Read her post here for more.

Keri of @livinginthisseason.com posted a post from a series titled Practical Tips for Moms and in this particular post she shares tips from Mila encouraging everyone to take and do 1 thing only, this could mean 1 task then a little bit of “you” time versus a million tasks a day and getting burned out.

Cynthia of @myrosecoloredshades.com styles a sports tee with jogging shorts, heels and blazer for a nice on the town hang out outfit while also promoting this tees line from Cinder + Salt. I just love how she transitions her wardrobe from sporty to on the town chic. You can read her post here.

Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me link up, Birthday girl and $300 giftcard giveaway

Good morning! It has snowed non-stop since yesterday morning and we could be getting 12 inches of snow or more, which means that this is what winter feels like and should be. However, the temperature has been in the 15 degrees and under which makes it a little unbearable. Other than the kids going stir crazy I have enjoyed getting cozied up on the couch with a blanket and watching some good movies or Instagramming on my phone.

This past weekend was filled with celebrating Nevaeh’s 6 birthday party. First of all, the actual day of her birthday I made cheesy scrambled eggs and toaster heated some Belgium waffles for dinner (per Nevaehs request) and then whipped up a cake and had a little celebration in our own home. Then on the day of her party we went to McDonalds and had family members and friends from her class over for a party. I am pretty sick of McDonald parties but where else do you have a party in the winter time for a child without spending a ton of money? Sure I could get on Pinterest and come up with themes and do a party at home but I am just not that crafty or organized. Any suggestions? What kind of parties have you done?

First party:

I hope you will join in and link up and possibly be featured next Tuesday. Just follow the rules below and say hello to a few bloggers that have linked up.
bloggerswhohavecollage1
1). Megan of @poshprime.com linked up the first of three ways she styled this plaid dress. I loved the edgy-ness to her outfit posted here.

2). Lisa of @beauty101bylisa is a new blogger I have been following and so when she posted this outfit as well as link it up I knew I needed to feature her. The Burberry inspired scarf and styling shorts for winter look is just too cute not to notice. You can follow up on her post (and weekly link up here).
bloggerswhohavecollage2
3). I loved how versatile this scalloped lace top was on Sammi of @beautifuldreamerami. I found myself wondering on the possibilities of what she could style this lovely top with, but I loved her touch of the pink blazer and accessories. You can check out more here.

4). Tiffany of @brightonabudgetl linked up a remix of a black and white small print polka dotted dress and the above th picture is only just one of the ways she styled this lovely dress to create a blouse. You can check out her other remix of this dress in her post here.

5). Becky of @bybmg.blogspot.com is probably one of the busiest ladies I have ever known yet she is just to darn good at it all so I asked her how she did it all and weeks later she wrote up this post and linked it up, so how could I not feature it.

Featured 5 Ladies from Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me link up and Christmas photos

I can’t get over the fact that tomorrow is Christmas eve! My little family will gather in the morning around the Christmas tree and open gifts to one another and then spend Christmas day with our family members for some good food, games, presents and time remembering what Christmas is really about- Christ’s birth.
The celebration of His life is so overwhelming. I am thankful for Christ coming to this earth and changing lives not only through physical healings and renewals but for cleansing our sin and renewing our lives through His ultimate sacrifice, his death and resurrection.
I know that there is so much joy in this holiday season as we celebrate His birth, but I also know there is sadness and perhaps lonliness. There are people in the world and probably reading this who have lost some loved ones whom they shared this glorious holiday with, going through financial or family problems or only God knows. But God is right there, He is the Almighty and can do all things, heal the broken hearted, lonely, hurt and outcast. If you just believe that He can then He is waiting with open arms for you to come to him with your anger, frustration, and even praise.
I could go on and on about Christmas and the reasons to celebrate but I will leave you with some family Christmas photos taken recently from our photographer Cary Elizabeth and the final five featured ladies that linked up to Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me last Tuesday.

Family Photos from the Garay’s! Merry Christmas!

Now for the Featured 5 bloggers from last weeks link up:

Fashion:
aztecvfoutsdie

Dawn of @fashionshouldbefun.blogspot.com linked up an adorable Aztec printed cardigan that I couldn’t help but share with you guys as I loved it. I also slightly envied her time spent at the mall and by a firepit in these photos- both sound amazingly nice right now. You can check out the original post here.

J+Crew+Camel+Top+Coat
Little+Black+Dress

Heather of @thriftstories.me posted two very exquisite and lovely outfits that you will need to be sure to check out here. This chica even got her outfits through thrift stores too.
Poncho Love 2
Jill of @dousedinpink.blogspot.com added in a post on her new cute poncho along with a childhood story on her first recollections of a poncho. You can read that story and view her nice casual outfit here.
IMG_9775

Tina of @tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com reviewed an eShakti dress perfect for her husbands holiday party. The color and make of the dress just stood out to me, most of all Tina looks so lovely in it. You can read about the review here.

Crockpot Chicken Tacos
Maria of @notsofancyjustlife.blogspot.com posted a recipe that is one of my favorites to make. It’s easy, cheap and delicious. I have seen many bloggers do this same recipe alongside Maria, but I just had to share it as we do this recipe all the time at our house. You can view the recipe here.

As a reminder last weeks link up was the last of 2014. It has been a joy to host this link up and meet some new bloggers. I hope you will enjoy todays featured. I look forward to the link up to continue in February as January will be a month long break from blogging for me. Enjoy!

 

Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me #13 Link up & Giveaway

Hello lovelies! I don’t know about you but I can’t believe that Thanksgiving has passed. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break and time with family. I know I sure did, you can read about mine here and here. It is crazy how it is now December- the Christmas season (if you celebrate it).
Today is the 13th link up for Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me and I just want to say how thankful I am for each and everyone of you that have either dropped by and linked up or left encouraging comments about the chosen bloggers from previous posts. I hope this can be a way to reach out and meet new bloggers and some out of your niches- we all need some blogger love right? Now on to todays featured 5 ladies that linked up last time and a sweet GIVEAWAY at the end of this post.

Fashion:

ring2

Dawn of @fashionshouldbefun.blogspot.com posted a nice outfit post/review on the new wedding/engagement ring line with Anjolee jewelry. I was impressed with her review and excited for her ring as I am about to receive the same one in the mail to review any day now, so Dawn just inspired me to think on my future outfit post/review options. You can read her post here.
One Dress Four Ways collage 2

Stephanie of @positivelystephanie.blogspot.com linked up a post on how she challenged herself to remix a simple brown dress into four different styles to create four different outfits. I love how she has taken the role of creating outfits with what she already has rather than feeling she must buy more clothing. I like the way she styled a chambray top and scarf with the dress to give it a skirt look. Which is your favorite in the above photo? Check out her post here to get a better picture of what she did.

Ada of @eleganceandmommyhood.blogspot.com, styled a silver blazer in two different ways to show that a blazer is not only for the corporate working world but useful for extra style and elegance in the everyday wear or “mom” wear. If you want to read up more on this and get a glimpse of how she styled the same grey dress while pregnant a few years back then go here.

FullSizeRender(11)

I am sure most of you on here are familiar with the link up “What I wore Wednesday.” While I see a lot of bloggers linking up various daily outfit posts I continue to be inspired with how Becky of @bybmg.blogspot.com links up just one post on Wednesdays documenting her personal style for each day as a teacher/mom/expecting mom. I believe I have never seen Becky wear the same outfit as she finds ways to remix what she has already in her wardrobe and it keeps me coming back to her posts on Wednesdays to see what she has come up with. You can view her post here.
DIY Tutorial:
6_zps808f6aac
Kym of @bittyandbunny.blogspot.com linked up a neat tutorial on how to create an infinity scarf using her grandmothers collection of vintage scarves. I don’t know a thing about sewing machines and sewing but this was just too neat of a project to not feature. You can check out Kym’s tutorial here.

Now for the first giveaway to be featured in with the “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” link up. Today I have teamed up with a few other bloggers to celebrate the birthday of Teressa of @teressajane.com. She is a fine blogger, mommy and ministers wife whom I have followed for quite some time now.

I hope you will check out her blog and wish her a “Happy Birthday” along with visit the others who have teamed up.

Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me # 12 link up

Hello and welcome to the 12th “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me” post/link up. Even though there was a break last week from featuring I was excited when many of you came back and linked up more of your posts anyway, so thank you for thinking of this little new link up party- I am just as excited about it as you must be.

I had the largest number of link ups occur than ever before-26, so thank you, thank you. I also want to thank  those that have regularly been linking up and to the several new followers for linking up. I hope you will enjoy coming back, but until then check out todays featured 5 and remember to link up a recent blog post or more and follow me in some form. This is the FIRST time in a while that I have included thumbnail picture links for more of your enjoyment. I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving break, time with family and friends. Will see you next Tuesday, December 2 for the next link up.

Fashion:

Feel-Great-Fashion_5

Robyn of @feelgreatfashion is a newbie to the link up, and I to hers Beautiful You so when she linked up this post I fell in love with the colors of this outfit as they made me think of spring and summer all over again. I liked how the blazer tied everything together and how the pumps added an extra pop of unexpected colors. You can check out Robyn’s post here and her link up here.

IMG_8914

Tina of @tickledpinkwoman.BlogSpot.com is a regular linker and I just love her blog, and she is a sweet lady if you haven’t met her yet. Today I am featuring her review of her recent TideBuy cuff bracelet and I just loved how she styled it with her lovely fall apparel. Somehow I have been seeing a lot of TideBuy reviews in blog land but hers sticks out. You can read her post here.

ELVI3

Ashley of @fabellis.com is a blogger I have known for alittle while so I was thrilled when she linked up for the first time recently. Today I am showcasing her layered coat-igan over overalls. I don’t see very many fashion bloggers display overalls but it is a treat when I see it as I like the trend but don’t often times know how to best style them so that they look hip and stylish. I think Ashley nailed it, and how unique is that coat-cardigan (coatigan) she is styling? You can review her post here for more details on this coatigan. *By the way would you like to see a shirt Ashley had sent to me and how I styled it then check it out here.

IMG_2679

Debbie of @fashionfairydust.blogspot.com also linked up a fun layered look combining faux fur, chambray and faux leather and she pulled off the different textures so well I just couldn’t resist NOT featuring her. If you have not checked out her blog you should as she is not just stylish, but downright witty and hilarious. I enjoy reading what she gets herself into. You can check out her post here.

Informing:

blackfridaysurvivaledit

Tif over at @brightonabudget.com linked up a post on her tips for shopping on Black Friday and some ways of saving money (and a trip to the mall or stores). I was intrigued to find out that many stores offer sales pre-black Friday and that some deals aren’t as great as you think. Tif encourages readers to have a plan beforehand of what to shop for, a budget and do research to be sure the products sale is a great deal or not. You can check out her post here to read up more on what she suggests during this busy shopping day or weekend.

Rules of the link up are as follows:

The posts can be about fashion, DIY projects, recipes, inspiration, tips, etc. *If you link up other link ups or giveaways please be sure you share this link up on your link up post to share the blog love and I will be sure to link up to yours.
