Macro Friday and a Giveaway!
Last week, Teresa from Sucre Lulu contacted me asking if I might be interested in checking out  some of her accessories. If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you know that I don’t typically do product reviews unless it’s a product I’ve paid for and used personally. Nonetheless, I agreed and she sent me two hair clips and one large hair clip/pin – within a few days, I received a package. 

To be perfectly honest, although my hair is long, I’m just now getting used to the idea of using accessories in my hair (headbands, clips, etc), so I spent a few days staring at the clips. Then, two nights ago, I decided these clips would be perfect for Macro Friday….then, yesterday, I decided that if I was really going to “check out” these hair clips that I needed to wear one. I proceeded by getting extra cute for work and taking a couple of shots in the mirror.
Selfie 081210 RS
Please ignore the spots on the mirror…and my lack of focus.
Selfie Polaroid
I thought it might be fun to try another shot “Polaroid” style. Sure, I don’t actually have a Polaroid, but I do have POLADROID. Poladroid is a free widget that you can download to your computer to recreate polaroid images. All you have to do is drag and drop…the application does the work for you. Do you still like to shake your polaroids? Well, it allows you to do that too. Okay, back to the subject at hand…
Feather Flower Macro RS
I absolutely love this hair clip…and I love that I could wear it as a pin on a jacket too. It’s pretty great. And, as much as I’d love to keep all three clips, I think that’s kinda greedy and I like to share…so I’ve decided to give away the other two in celebration of reaching 400 followers. 

Purple Hair Clip Macro RS
I will be giving away this one (purple) as well as an orange one (top right in the photo below- I’ve still got to take a good photo of it) to two lucky friends. These clips are a bit smaller than the one I’m wearing above so they would be perfect for kids or adults.

Give me your best shot at Better in Bulk    PhotoStory Friday

I’ll keep the rules simple because I want to make life easy on you and me. I’ll pick two winners on Friday, August 20th.
  1. Follow me if you haven’t already (but only if you are really interested in my blog – I won’t be pimping out this give away all over the place).
  2. Go check out Teresa’s website or blog (because I think she’s got cute stuff at reasonable prices).
  3. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think of Teresa’s work and/or why you’d be excited to win.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
