Hey Gorgeous Dolls! 
Happy Tuesday! Hope all of you are having a wonderful week so far! Wanted to update you on the newest! I'm now on Pinterest & joining all of you beauties in staying up much too late, and spending way too much time playing on this oh so fun newest "it" thing! What is Pinterest? I've finally taken the time to figure it out & here's my definition...

"A virtual collage of all the things you love!", right?

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web by pinning it on to your virtual pinboards. You can also browse through others pinboards to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests. With the virtual pinboards it’s fun and easy to be inspired to redecorate your home, plan a party, find your style and most your inspirations. 

Or this definition I found that also sums it up...

LOL! on my newest tab, "PIN ME"... & let's play! I'd love to share your favorite things with you! 

My other newest addition is my "professional" Blog Button, created by my Blog Genius, Shari from The Little Blue Deer! She is wonderful & if you or someone you know needs a brand new, or updated blog...she's your girl! 

For those of you who've already added my own creation of my button to your blog & want to change it to this one...please feel free! Thank you so so much! Both of our buttons are to the right of this post!

And...for all of you who've entered my Giveaway...I love you & I thank you! For all of you who have yet to...please do! You still have 4 days left & I don't want you to miss out! Please go to my "Happy 100" post & enter away! 

Have a beautiful night, know how much I truly love & appreciate all of you who take the time to share my world & my heart...and I'll see you tomorrow! 

Happy Pinning & Happy Winning,

Happy Sunday Fun-day, Dolls!
Hope everyone is having a PERFECT last day of the weekend & I hope everyone's weather is as heavenly as mine here in Texas! Gonna take this day poolside in a minute, but have to tell you about what I'm loving today...besides all of you of course! MUAH! ULTA has been around for a while now I know, but until now...the only things I've ever seen from there were on SEPHORA's website. So...not long ago I received an email about a sale, ULTA itself was having, so of course I had to check it out! It is a smell good fan's dream!!! So many yummy things that I thought would smell so so yummy, and let me just tell you...they did not disappoint!!! Everything I got is TO DIE! They smell good enough to eat & not any of the calories! That's what I'm talkin' about! 

Here's what I got...

The 3-in-one SHOWER SMOOTHIES that are multi-purpose for Bubble Bath, Body Wash & Conditioner, but for me...I use them to fill up all the fancy soap dispensers in my house! People love smelling something so yummy when they wash their hands & the colors...oh so beautiful & perfectly summer! 

They have so many scents/colors, but here are the ones I started with...

I love everything Banana...Runts, Laffy Taffy, real Bananas, & of course the scent! So if you do will love this! Smells like a tropical vacation! 

This Watermelon one smells exactly how you picture it will! If you're a Watermelon fan...this ones for you! 

Can you say Heaven? No joke...smells exactly like frosting & instead of licking the bowl, I seriously had to stop myself from licking the pump! LOL! Heather...this ones for you, & don't think I didn't buy you one! It's on it's way! You will die

Smells like the tress outside Grandma's house! Summer just wouldn't be complete without this! Love it! 

How beautiful do all these colors look together? Love them! And if you have clear glass soap dispensers, or clear containers for bubble bath next to your tub...even more beautiful! 

But if you wanna get really fancy...How cute would something like this look? Even though this one takes away the cute colors...still adorable! Great for gifts too! 

And then the last things I got were anti-bacterial soaps, purse-sized lotions that I always carry with me. Using Vanilla Sugar right now & the smell is amazing & lasts a long time.  But the best...which I am saving for this adorable "swirl" Cupcake Lotion! Not only does it smell exactly like has glitter in it too! If you're as big of fan as me of all things will die! Even the cute! 

The SHOWER SMOOTHIES are on sale right now $14.99, but if you buy get 2 free!!! And they are HUGE! 24oz.

All things can be found or an ULTA store near you! I sound like a commercial! Ha Ha! 

Enjoy the rest of your day & Happy Shopping & Happy Summer! I'll see you beauties tomorrow but don't forget...6 more days left of my Giveaway & I promise you won't want to miss out! All I can tell you is I also own everything I'm giving away, so if you like what you've seen in my will love everything! Tell all you girls too, because that way, no matter who can all share! I love & thank you all!

Happy 100!

Happy Friday Fun-Day, Gorgeous Guys & Dolls!
 I know. Usually Sunday is "fun day", but I'm making my own up for today because I'm SO excited to share with you guys my oh so fun news! He He! it is! Today, along with all of you, I'm celebrating my 100th blog post!!! I cannot believe how fast time flies & that I've already reached 100! This little blog is something I've dreamed about for so long, and now that I'm living it, because of all of you...I couldn't be more grateful, or feel more blessed. Thank you, to each & every one of you, who take the time to read along with all that lives inside my heart. It's an honor to call you my family/friends, and to be on this little journey with you! So...from the bottom of my heart...I love you & I thank you. 
Now for the "fun" part! As a way to thank you...I'm having a giveaway!!! I don't want to tell you what you'll get, but I PROMISE you will LOVE it! All the goodies add up to over $100 & it's SO girly & fun! Who doesn't love fun gifts & who doesn't love packages in the mail! Not too many things in life are surprises anymore, so I just think it'll be more fun that way! How many of you used to go to the Hello Kitty store growing up & get "grab bags", so that it would be a surprise? Ha Ha. My Sister & I always did. This little contest makes me feel like a kid all over again & I sure hope it does for you too! 

Anyone can enter & contest will run until next Friday night, July 1, 2011 ! The winner will be announced on Sat, July 2, 2011! Being so new to the blogging terms/gadgets...instead of using one of those fancy random number generators online, I'm just going to choose a winner old school, by picking a name out of a hat! LOL! I promise I will be completely fair though & make it all legit! Just have no idea how to do it the other way yet! Maybe by my next 100th post! Ha Ha! You can enter up to 3 times & here are all the ways...

Here's how to enter:

(1) entry:  Become a follower and leave a comment on this post.  If you're already following, just leave a comment as well!
(2) entries:  Become my friend on Facebook (link on my blog), so that when you win you can post a picture of what you got on my page for everyone to see! 
(3) entries:  Post on your blog in a post or on your sidebar. Add my button below!

Please let me know in your comment how many times you entered, so know exactly how many times your name needs to be added to my hat! Ha Ha! 

<a href=";current=BlogButton-PerfectHeader.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

*Again...have no idea how to give you my button, so I hope you can add it by this! LOL. If not...please school me! Ha Ha. 

What is Following?
Do you have a favorite blog and want to let the author and readers know that you are a fan? Well now you can do that and more with the Blogger Following feature! You can even keep track of the blogs you follow via your Reading List on the Blogger dashboard.

How do I become a Follower of a blog?

There are several ways to become a follower of a blog. One of the easiest ways is to visit a blog that has added the Following widget and click on the "Follow" button under the "Followers" widget:

You'll then see a popup window with the options to either follow publicly or privately:

Select how you'd like to follow the blog, then click the "Follow this blog" button. It is that simple, you are now a follower of the blog! If you elected to follow the blog publicly, your profile picture will be displayed on the blog with a link to your Blogger profile (Note: The widget may not show all followers of the blog. If this is the case all followers will be linked from the widget). When you become a follower of a blog, the blog will also be added to your Reading List on your Blogger dashboard and this site will also show on your FriendConnect profile for all the sites you've joined using Friend Connect. Additionally, you can become a follower of any blog or URL (even if the blog doesn't have the Followers widget) by adding the blog to your Reading List on the dashboard.

Cliff Notes Version & if you have no idea what all this on the white box, located next to the little faces on my blog (He He) & if you don't have a Google takes 2 seconds to create one! Promise it will be worth it! And...if you go through all the trouble & don't take home the prize this time...I will have a million & one more giveaways & you'll already be ready to go! The next giveaway will be when I reach 100 followers, so please be sure & tell all your peeps! 

Dolls, all you Guys with Girlfriends, Wives, Sisters, Mama' will ALL want this! 

Again...Giveaway closes Friday, July 1, 2011 at 12:00 AM EST, and the winner will be announced the following Saturday, July 2, 2011.  

So enter away! 
Thanks again for your love, friendship, and for reading! Best of luck to you all!

CAN'T WAIT to see who wins!
