The minutes change like seasons, only eight more hours to go.

HI FRIENDS!
I stopped by to add a mommy friend to my blog roll and realized that my last post here was a year ago saying "I'M BACK!" 
...how quickly days turn into months.

I'm sure most of my readers here follow me through other various social networking platforms and probably know this already, but the biggest change from last year to this is that I've taken up hoop dancing! It's been NINE MONTHS TODAY!!!!

holy crap, I had no idea until right this second 

my hooping could be a proper baby now

b-a-n-a-n-a-s

and it's brought me and unimaginable amount of joy. When I bought my first hoop I thought it was going to be another dream hobby that I forget about after a week of trying, but something clicked on my first twirl and I've been obsessed ever since.

I even made my first hoop tutorial recently that I'm super excited about! It's already been picked up by Hoop-Trix.com and Hooping.org which have both played a huge part in my own hoop journey, so I'm honored to get the chance to be a part of them.

I'm not officially saying I'm back to blogging because I don't want to jinx it, but I've sure got a lot to post about, and I miss and love you all!

Coming back!

HEY BLOG!

I made a list a few days ago about things I'd like to accomplish in the next year or so and one of the things I really want to do is start posting here again. I love going back and reading my old entries and I'm really sad that I've been such a slacker this year. So here I am telling you all that I'm going to start making time to blog so you can all hold me accountable.

We Love Sourpuss Clothing

If you don't already know, Sourpuss Clothing is an all in one shop for all of your retro inspired clothing, accessories, and homeware needs! They've got cuteness for the whole family. Clementine and I were lucky enough to be contacted by Sourpuss asking if we'd like to review some of their Mother/Daughter clothing, and we jumped at the chance.

I mean how cute can you get? Matching Mother/Daughter adorableness AND strawberries? I'm all about it.

Look at the details of Clemmie's cardigan. It's perfect. The quality is great, the fabric is that perfect inbetween thickness where it's thick enough to keep you nice and warm but not so thick that it feels bulky. They even added little strawberry blossoms to the strawberry patches! Strawberry blossoms are one of my favorite flowers. 

We love the little bows on the sleeves and the jewel buttons! When I first showed the cardigan to Clementine she lost her mind of the buttons: "THEY'RE LIKE REAL TREASURE!" so cute.

The rickrack detailing on my dress is precious! I love a good use of rickrack.

I'm sure a lot of you know this already, but gingham is my favorite summer print!

Clementine and I were so thrilled and inspired by our new treasures that we even did our nails to match:

and we added a few extra prints for Clementine because she likes her nails extra fun!

MaxStar Review

Maxstar C50 5-Holes Platform Boat Sneakers
HI GUYS!
What an amazing couple of weeks I've had! I have so many wonderful things to blog about and share with you that I'm having trouble focusing! I'm just TOO excited!

First thing first, as I'm sure a lot of you know already, I am a BIG fan of MaxStar shoes! I already own their Double Platform Sneakers in white and I wear them ALL THE TIME! I've been thinking for a while about buying a second pair (before I eventually wear my double platforms to death) but they have so many wonderful styles I was having a hard time choosing. I ended up just visiting their webstore every few days just looking at everything over and over again. Obsessed. Eventually I saw their "be a reviewer" section and thought "I CAN DO THAT? THAT'S A THING?!" 

I've been asked by companies in the past to review their products on my various social networking sites, but I always felt weird about it and would end up turning them down. I worried that it would feel forced. I would never blog about something I wasn't 100% excited about. Nothing feels weird about the idea of reviewing for MaxStar. I actually feel super lucky and excited that I get the chance to work with this company and share their wonderful products with you!

Within just a few short days of emailing maxstar with my shoe choice FedEx was knocking on my door ready to hand over my new shoe babies!

 
they came in this really cute shoe bag that I plan on keeping to help keep my clothes clean in my suitcase when I pack for our mini vacation this summer! (I already have so many outfit ideas for these shoes! They're coming with me everywhere!)

Maxstar C50 5-Holes Platform Boat Sneakers
I've been looking for a a cute pair of white keds type sneakers to wear with all of my spring outfits, but being a short girl with a tall husband, I personally prefer my shoes to be a little more chunky and feel strange in flats. Adding that little extra platform to the bottoms of these adorable shoes is just PERFECT for me! They're still really simple with a platform of only 4.5cm, but it gives me that little extra lift that makes me feel comfortable, confident and cute! 

preciousness!
The platform is all rubber so I don't have to worry about them wearing down from daily use like some foam platforms do, and they're REALLY comfortable!

It so hard to take a cute picture of your own feet! Who knew?!
Clementine came in while I was taking these pictures and she was like "I KNEW you were going to choose those shoes! I love them. Can I take a picture too?"
she likes to sleep in my old band tees :3
I love these shoes!
maxstarstore.com is really easy to navigate (I could spend hours just looking at everything and making endless wishlists) the customer service is excellent and the shipping is super fast! My new Platform Boat Sneakers and my old Double Platform Sneakers are both incredibly comfortable and are great quality! I've had my Double Platform Sneakers for almost two years now. I've worn them to many concerts, events, and just running around with my kids and they've held up great!

What a wonderful NYE we had! 
This is the first year since having Clementine that I wasn't sick on NYE, and it's the first year that I've had proper plans to go out with friends. Through the powers of the internet, Kiki and I have built a friendship with the magical unicorn woman Xanadu Julie, and together we are team bunny! As soon as we started thinking about new years plans we knew that we were going to have a very bunny new year.
