Sponsor Love & Some Giveaway Swag!

I am MEGA PUMPED about this sponsor love post. Tara from Beautiful Blendings is one of my top 10 favorite people. She's cute as a stinkin' button and creates awesome hair swag. (if you read my blog religiously you know how addicted to hair swag I am) She even named one after MOI! (I know, I was completely and totally honored! I think it suits me well, no?)

Let's get to know Tara, shall we? (we shall)

oh and hey extra fun side note: she's doing a giveaway! Keep readin' ;)

Hello! I'm Tara and I blog over at Beautiful Blendings when I'm not totally running crazy in my everyday life. I started my Etsy shop just a few short months ago and shortly after starting my blog in January of this year. I was so incredibly inspired by the blogging community and have met some of my most favorite people in life in this world. I have always been the girl who writes and creates and for a short while I was hiding from that passion. Now I am fully embracing my love of making pretty things {such as headbands, clips, and all things baby and beautiful} and writing my little heart out.

My most favorite handmade item that I currently own is probably any of my gorgeous pieces from {just.lovely.things} from the incredible Heather. You all know you love her too. And if you don't know about her; you should probably get in the lovely loop.

Three items in my shop that I'm super stoked about {and almost didn't want to sell!} are Casey {inspired by the amazing Casey Wiegand}, Cory {super new} and the Haley {which is super on sale and I may just have to keep for myself!}.

You are waiting online for an epic ride at your favorite water park. When you get to the top you realize they ran outta water and are now pumping the rides full of ... coconut milk. Wouldn't you smell a-mazing after a day in that?

QUICK: would you rather be given the ability to fly OR be invisible ... I want to be invisible. I like the idea of the peace and quiet whenever I need it and also I could do some great people watching. I have such an interest in why people do what they do. Not in a creepy way, promise.

Hidden Talents? We know you got 'em! I'd have to say my hidden talent is probably that I can do the full splits on both sides. Take that 25 years old!

Where can we stalk get to know you better?
You can find me almost everywhere. And I absolutely love interacting with people so feel free to chat me up anywhere. AND ... in the month of September I am working with Ashley from The Shine Project to help raise money for her scholarship fund. So 25% of each sale from my shop will go towards helping sending a kid to college. You can read more about it on my blog but please SHOP or share the word!
