HERE. a pop-up shop: May 29th – June 7th in #Annapolis + @iMonet73 Photography!

I was not financially compensated for this posting. All opinions are my own.

So two years ago I posted about whether pop up shops were becoming a trend on or not. I saw them around town, but it wasn’t until a few weeks ago when a good friend of mine informed that her artwork was going to be on display and sold in a pop up shop, did I start to pay attention again.5ebd712d4856f0546b66d4b6634e43c0_7tajIn my post, I mentioned HERE. a pop up shop. Well I’m happy to say that they are still going strong here in the Annapolis, MD area! If you aren’t familiar, here’s the info straight from their website: “HERE. a pop-up shop will feature apparel, jewelry, accessories, art (originals & prints), photography, gift items, home goods, furniture and more ~ concentrating on LOCAL artists & designers as much as possible.

The most recent shop will open TODAY at 1380 Cape St. Claire Road in Annapolis. However, like I mentioned above, I’m most excited that my amazingly talent friend, Lee Anne from imonet73 Photography, will have her artwork featured and sold at HERE.! You can see her iPhone only photography over at her @imonet73 Instagram account.

HERE. will have their Opening Party TONIGHT from 6-8 PM. Both the Broadneck Grill and Blue Rooster Cafe will be serving up some delicious food, and Laura Brino (owner of THE SHOP) will be performing. If you can’t make it tonight, the shop opens every day at 9 AM starting today through June 7th.

Find More Items to Love at Sears Online! ~ #MoreatSears

This post brought to you by Sears. All opinions are 100% mine.

You know when you are shopping and find that absolutely to-die-for dress? You spot it and then start going through the racks looking for your size. Low and behold, your size is gone! It’s always a pain to find something you love, but alas you can’t find the size to fit! Luckily Sears offers an expanded assortment on their website so when you can find the color or size you need, you can just check online!

Need the item in a hurry? That’s no problem! You can actually buy items off the Sears website and then schedule an in store pickup. I absolutely love that Sears guarantees to have your item ready in 5 minutes or less. If they don’t, you’ll receive a $5 in store coupon! Not bad, right?

While I was browsing the Sears website to see if they had a certain dress in my size, I couldn’t help but notice all the newest arrivals up online. It was great to see the variety of colors and sizes all available on the website. Plus, I had no idea that Sears carries some pretty awesome designers brands that I normally can’t resist. Sears has definitely stepped up their game! Designers include Ray Ban, Michael Kors, DeWalt Tools, Steve Madden, Nike, Vince Camuto, Tory Burch … the list goes on and on. I love that while I’m checking out the affordable Sears brands, I can also see what my favorite luxury designers are offering as well at just one stop. I know my one weakness was shoes and couldn’t be more excited about the new sandals that Sears has to offer!

That’s not all though! Since Sears is adding hundreds of new designers, styles, and colors to their online shop every day, it may get a little overwhelming for you. I know it was for me as I’m a girl who loves to shop! Luckily you can always check out their featured marketplace offers to see what is new and available. Sears definitely posts some awesome deals on there!

Sears is committed to helping their customers find exactly what they want. So what are you waiting for? Head on over to Sears and find more items to fall in love with! Impressed as I am? After seeing the new lineup for yourself, be sure to tweet about it to your friends and family just like I did.

White Picket Fence

This guest post was brought to you by The Little Me Multiple Birth Program.

White Picket Fence

littlemeLet’s go back quite a few years to my childhood home. I pushed two baby dolls in my little brother’s stroller while wearing my mother’s high heels up and down our hardwood floors. Those two babies went everywhere with me. They went to the park, watched cartoons with me and I even insisted on having a place for them at the kitchen table. I dreamed of a husband, twins and a family dog. Sounds “white picket fence” perfect, right?

Now I’m all grown up with a husband, a dog and a beautiful baby boy. I didn’t get those twins I was hoping for as a little girl, but as a mother of a 7 week old child, I can’t imagine having two! I tip my hat to the parents of multiples. How do you do it? Double late night feedings, two poopy diapers at once and twice as many outfit changes. I’m not the only one who recognizes the challenges of multiples; the fine people at Little Me want to help out.

Little Me knows that, expecting a multiple birth is a wonderful and stressful time in your life. The Little Me Multiple Birth Program is a way they’d like to help you keep your attention on the double (triple, quadruple or more) sweet giggles & coos soon on their way. Little Me is offering you a “Welcome to the World” gift after your children’s births. To receive your free gift, all you have to do is register. Easy, right? They know that you’ve already got enough on your plates so they want you to receive your gift as easily as possible!

Red Carpet Inspiration for Iron Man 3 ~ #IronMan3Event

I received the trailer as a blogger for Walt Disney Publications. I was not financially compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.

Later this month I know some fellow bloggers are headed to the Iron Man 3 World Premiere in Los Angeles. One of the best parts? They will be there when the red carpet rolls out!

So I figured why not add a little Iron Man flair to your red carpet outfit? Browsing through fashion, here is an inspiration board of how you can be your own “Iron Woman.” Who knows… Robert Downey Jr. may even be a little jealous of your oh-so-fabulous-Iron look!

Don’t forget to connect with Iron Man 3 on Facebook and Twitter! This film will hit theaters nationwide on May 3, 2013. Be on the lookout for hashtags #IronMan3 for all things Iron Man related, and #IronMan3Event for all things related to the Iron Man 3 World Premiere!

Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
