Parallel Face & Body Shop | Item Review and Giveaway

Hi peeps!

Raquel here:)

You may remember me from a fashion guest post I did here on Bramblewood last month sometime.  Ashley was kind enough to let me guest post again, but this time, I have a giveaway for y'all!  I hope you enjoy my review of this lovely (new) Etsy shop and enter for a chance to win three of their lovely products!

Parallel Face & Body
on Etsy

I am always on the lookout for lip balms.  The three main requirements they must fulfill are:

1) make my lips moist and protect them from getting chapped
2) be pretty and not too bold of a color (that's what lipstick is for)
3) taste good

When Parallel shop owners, Amber and Stacy, agreed to sponsor a giveaway for me and send me three free samples of their lip balm, I was excited to see if they would meet my standards.

And ohmygoodnessgracious.  I was not disappointed.

What I Wore | Cream + Floral

This past Saturday I attended a friends wedding, which was simply beautiful, and I wore a gorgeous purple-y dress that I had found at the thrift store. Anyways, I was going to share pictures of me in my dress, but it had gotten so warm that day, and I was a hot sweaty mess afterwards that I didn't feel like having pictures taken right then. So instead, you are going to see what I wore after the wedding, once we got home and I had cooled down a bit & felt more refreshed. *smile* But I promise, one of these days y'all will see the dress, as it fits me like a dream!

Friday Favorites

Hello lovlies! This is going to be a rather quick Friday Favorites post, as I have to get ready to serve for a rehearsal dinner this evening. And I'm not sure what I'm going to wear yet, plus I have to fix my hair and do my makeup. You know, girly things.
1. I must say, this is rather true for me.

What I Wore | Roses Make Everything Nice

Hello my lovelies! I have a rather fun outfit photo-shoot to share with y'all today. You see, last Friday I received some roses from the lovely website, The Bouqs [I was able to pick out what flowers I wanted] to review and share with y'all. I was rather impressed with their shipping & packaging, but I will be sharing more about them later.

Today I didn't have to go anywhere until this evening, which was just lovely as I don't have many full days at home anymore. Which explains my lack of articles, outfit post, and YouTube videos recently. Anyway, I spent the day working on editing & uploading a haul video; watching some episodes of my favorite TV shows; tidying up my bedroom [which was sorely needed]; going with my Dad to drop off his car at the mechanic; and going to my youngest sister's softball practice this evening. Whew, that is a lot.

What I Wore | Easter Style [Coral + Cream]

I hope y'all had a delightful Easter! We all went on a little day trip as a family to visit Southern Indiana [visited a War Between the States battle-site] & Louisville, Kentucky [went to the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory] -- both of which were fun! At the Louisville Slugger Factory I was able to hold the bats of: Ian Kinsler, Josh Hamilton [just a few weeks ago he visited & signed a thank-you note on one of the machines that makes the Major League baseball bats & it included a Bible verse with his signature], Joey Votto, and several others.

What I Wore | Love is an Open Door

Hello my lovelies! Life has been beyond crazy around here, leaving me very little time for blog posts, YouTube videos, or much else. I did have time yesterday to go to a Disney themed movie party at a friends house, where my sisters & them got all dressed up as different Disney princesses. We had Snow White [that was me], Elsa [Gaby], Belle [Hanne-col], Anna [our youngest sister, Abby], Rapunzel [One of our friends], and Jasmine [another one of our friends. btw, the friends are sisters too] show up. We watched Frozen [for us girls, it was the first time] & Tangled -- two awesome movies! To say the least, we are all now obsessed with the songs and the movie. The song I can't get enough of is, Love is an Open Door. It is so catchy & fun. Of course, the actor who plays Prince Hans is from Broadway and plays Prince Topher in Cinderella.

Anyhow, today has been one of my most relaxing Saturday's that I have had in awhile. This morning me and Gaby took our sister, Abby, to her softball practice. While we waited for her practice to be done we went to Starbucks & Target, which btw, are two of our favorite places. I picked up some bunny marshmallows [they are so cute & yummy], some chocolate on clearance, and the Frozen DVD at Target.

What I Wore | Sequins + Chambray

Hello my lovelies! My outfit for today is the perfect mix of dressy & casual with the sequins, polka-dots, chambray, and yes, even some leopard print. Haha...yeah, I'm really stepping out of my comfort zone with this outfit, as I have never worn sequins before. I only got interested in trying sequins out after meeting the Long Ladies, who love their sequins. Thanks for the inspiration girls! Onto my outfit, as I will have to be leaving soon for my nanny job.

What I Wore | 1950s Inspired Outfit & Pearl Blossom Boutique Review + Giveaway

Hello lovelies! I'm *so* excited to "talking" to y'all, especially since I was talking to y'all in my mind as I was trying to go to sleep last night. If it wasn't so late, and if I had good lighting, I would have filmed a video but alas it was 2:00 AM. Anyhow, I'm going to be sharing with y'all my after church outfit with you girls today. Since it was in the 70s today, I decided to wear a 1950s inspired outfit with some jean shorts & gingham button. Of course, you can't forget the red lipstick and pearl earrings. *smile*

Friday Favorites

Hello my lovelies! I know, I know, I haven't really posted much this week. I've been crazy busy, as our parents have been out of town at a conference, which means I have to take all my siblings to were they need to be everyday. Also, my brother's baseball season has started up again [they won their first game of the season, and another game is this evening]. I'm going to *hopefully* have a review & giveaway post for y'all going up either tomorrow, or Sunday. Yay! Anyhow, onto my favorites for this week.

1. Mint + White + Coral -- I really love this adorable outfit for summer. It looks so fresh & airy. Also, I can't wait for shorts weather to be here, as I have some fun styling ideas up my sleeve [think hipster & vintage inspired].

What I Wore | Stripes + Florals for Spring

I was away from home most of the day today, as I had to drive my siblings around town to their different things: work, homeschool writing class, and softball practice. In between all that, I also stopped by at Half-Price books [two locations, in fact] and found some real treasures. I will share a picture of my haul at the end of this post. *smile*

#1top3days | Day 3

Hello everyone! How has your Saturday been so far? I kinda slept in really late this morning, since we stayed out later then expected last night. So far, I've worked on cleaning up my room a bit & watched an episode of Psych on HULU [I haven't seen all of season 8 yet, so no spoilers]. Then late this afternoon & evening I will be babysitting.

#1top3days | Day 2

Hello my lovelies! How are y'all doing today? I'm posting today's outfit post during my lunch break at work, as I'll be going [with Gabrielle] to a friend's house for a girly night consisting of dinner, a movie, and doing makeovers. Fun times. So this post is going to be quick, and you won't see much of me online, until late this evening [10pm or so].

1 Button-Down | 3 Days | 3 Ways [Day 1]

Hello everyone! It is day one of 1 top | 3 days | 3 ways blogging event, and I can't wait to see everyone's outfits! Today in central Indiana is a dark, dreary, and stormy kind of day -- not good for taking pictures. So, I improvised and took pictures inside our kitchen. So please, pardon the cluttered background. *smile*

Jergens BB Body Cream Review

Hello everyone! Today I have a review on Jergens BB Body Cream to share with y'all. Which is a BB Cream for you body, instead of your face [now I adore BB creams for your face]. This cream moisturizes your body, while also helping to even out your skin tone for a more even colour [it helps blur out redness & other imperfections].

What I Wore | Taylor Swift Inspired Outfit for Spring

Hello everyone! We have been having spring like weather this week, which is awesome. I spent the day working on cleaning out my sewing area [found a bunch of unfinished costumes from my Senior year of high-school '08-'09]. Going to Starbucks to pick up my free drink [I chose the Hazelnut Frapp], driving with the windows down & listening to country music. How has your day been today?
