SURPRISE! and a GIVE AWAY!

Where does the time go?

Just over a year ago I started this silly blog. A year ago! I would never want to admit how many wasted hours were spent on writing posts nor would I ever want to admit how many wasted hours were spent on filling my cyber shopping cart due to my blog.

Covering all sorts of topics from "Trendy Tuesdays" to cosmetic must haves, with a little home decor and snippets of my royal family on the side. Really what it boils down to is I've shared a lot of nothing and have enjoyed every minute of it! I hope all of you out there who have wasted time reading my blog have giggled a little, smiled a lot and just maybe dared to try something new. BUT, most importantly, I hope you know that no matter what size you are or how messy your house is or how grown out your high lights are...

YOU ARE STILL AMAZING.

GIVE AWAY TIME: If I had all the time in the world I would love to make each and everyone of you my all-time favorite Mrs. Princess Pookie bangle. This was the very first bangle I ever made and I wear it proudly. It reads "Be You." You may not be able to afford a designer handbag (me either) or have time to maintain perfectly waxed eyebrows but no matter where you are or what you are doing, you have the ability to be you. And that is something you should be proud of~ALWAYS.


So, in celebration of my new blog and ONE year of wasted time:D, I would like to share one of these bangles with one of you. Click on fashion experts below (to leave a comment) and make a vow to always be you. Simple! One person will be chosen at random. Winner will be announced Friday 11.6.09.




It's been fun. It's been really fun. Thanks so much for reading. And another big thanks to all of you who have left comments. They always put a smile on MY face! Oh ya, and I dedicate my new and improved blog (How do you like it?) to all of you out there who have stood in front of the mirror and laughed out loud at yourself. I truly believe if you can't laugh at yourself then you've got SERIOUS problems.


Here's to much more fashion blogging nonsense!

It amazes me what you do and all you complete with family and job. When we first met, somehow I never pictured you and this website together, took getting to know you a little - unbelievably great, though.

I vow always to be me...even when everyone around me wishes i was someone else. This is my first time to your blog and I had no idea you are a woman of so many talents. congrats on your new site.

I love your blog...I have never laughed so hard (almost pee'ed my pants). Enjoyed the recipes you have posted (love the ginger cookies). Valued your love and respect of family by your traditions of Birthday weekends, celebration of holidays, and love of your hubby. You have an amazing sense of fashion and respect that we all should "Be Ourselves" even when we all come in so many different shapes, sizes, abilities, homes, and fashion knowledge.
I can't wait for another year of laughing, reminising, and "Be Me" fashion.
Love ya...Thanks again for taking the time to make my world more fun!!
