Ok, there has been some confusion going on here (I was bit confused as well). The people from Silhouette sent me an email to clarify some details of the black Friday sale better;

When your readers enter your unique promo code they will get a 40% discount off everything in the Silhouette online store (except the CAMEO, subscriptions, download cards, and gift cards)

The CAMEO will not be found in the regular online store but only on our ‘secret’ Black Friday page:

Your unique promo code will allow your people to get a nice discount on their CAMEO (note: the CAMEO is not 40 percent off but will be discounted)

Finally, our Black Friday supply of CAMEOs will sell out so make sure your followers know this!

The Black Friday Sale begins at 12:01 (MST) on Friday the 25th. Codes will be valid through the 28th.

All shapes will be half off.

I hope this make better sense... happy shopping!

ONA Review/Giveaway Post

Before I start to tell you how awesome the Roma is, let me tell you how I fell in love with some of their products...

Take a look at them, those are camera bags! Aren't they so stylish?

I especially LOVE these...

(Katie, if you ever need somebody to review those beautiful bags, I am here for you! :) )

Well, usually before I write a review post, I always try to read and study the company I am representing. I went to their web site, and read some things and I went "Yes! I know exactly what you are talking about!"

Here is the part that I soo totally agree with written by Tracy, founder of ONA;

"I love photography. There's something truly magical about taking a photo that tells a story and captures the essence of a moment in time. So I carry my SLR camera everywhere. On dreamy vacations. To Sunday brunch with friends. To family gatherings and trips to the park. But I loathed carrying a camera bag that was clunky and distracting. On occasion, to avoid looking like a tourist, I even tried stuffing my camera into a stylish non-camera bag, wrapping it in scarves or t-shirts and hoping it wouldn’t come in contact with my other stuff. Inevitably, it did. And my camera ended up with the nicks and scratches to prove it..."

When I bought my DSLR, it was a packaged deal, so it came with the bag. I thought it was really neat to protect my camera, but soon I found that I didn’t like my bag. It is bulky, and it speaks loudly "I AM A CAMERA BAG!" I don't like that.

The bags created by ONA are true to their philosophy... camera bags should be discreet, stylish and functional.

I was given the chance to use one of their products Roma.

It is a camera insert, and boy I LOVE this already. A lot of the time, I don't want to take the whole bulky camera bag wherever I go. Roma is not going to be a replacement for the camera bag with ALL my lenses and accessories, but I was able to pack my DSLR and small lens and put that into my other bag that I wanted to carry that day. It didn't only serve as a camera insert, because of the five exterior pockets; it helped me organize my other stuff in the bag.

It is well made, very functional... and the best part of is, I am given the chance to do a giveaway for my readers! If you are the one lucky winner, you will understand why I was so excited about this product.

Ok, here are the rules to enter:

1. Head over to ONA and browse for a while and come back here and tell us your most favorite product. (1st entry)

2. Become a follower on my main page. (2nd entry)

3. Blog about this giveaway, tweet, become a fan on ONA’s Facebook page. (3rd entry)

I will run the giveaway until Monday the 21st and announce the winner on the 22nd.

Good luck every one!

Shabby Apple Review / Teacher's Pet Skirt

Ahh... I am in love. I have been eyeing this Teacher's Pet skirt ever since their new line Academia came out.

Navy & white is one of my favorite color combinations; I love how the borders get wider towards the bottom and the boxed pleats give more detail to the skirt.

Here are a couple more of my favorites from Academia line;

A+ shirt dress

I always love classy style. I especially like the white collar and 3/4 sleeves. I bet there are many different ways to wear this dress.

And this one... Bookworm. First of all, I love the name "bookworm", since I am always reading something if I am not taking care of my family or sewing. I love the simplicity of it. I love bold colors or patterns but it is always nice to have simple (yet pretty) items such as this. The potential of the clothes is almost limitless with some accessories and shoes you can always dress up or down.

Are you wondering if I had fun with my new skirt? You bet I did!

There were several ways that I thought I can wear this skirt with what I have in my closet. I can wear it with a simple navy t-shirt, the right shade of red might be a fun choice, you can always count on a crisp white shirt, oh, even when you are wearing the same thing, how you accessorize it gives a totally different look to the wardrobe. I am not a fashion expert, but I enjoy thinking about the possibilities.

Well, you have already seen one of the coordinations I did. Here is another one:

All I changed from the first one was the shoes, cardigan and belt. That is all! The first coordination was more of a "good girl" look. I was aiming for a "boutique" look with this one.

I just love this skirt, and with the right coordination and accessories, I can pretty much wear this for three out of the four seasons. Isn't that awesome or what?

Thank you Shabby Apple for this opportunity, I will continue to enjoy the skirt!

Note: When you go to their website to see the picture for this skirt, the bottom of the skirt hit just below the knee of the model. Since I am much shorter it is a little bit lower on me. Also I feel like I could have gone one size smaller, so when you buy, make sure to check their sizing chart. :)
