Below is the 7-in-1, a lariat you can wear at least 7 ways
I had such an amazing weekend.  I got to hang out with a bunch of really neat women and hear a phenomenal speaker from a project called "Zoe" share about God and her work saving children from human trafficking.  All I can say is, "Wow."

I wanted to display some cool things I got from Heavenly Treasures (who helped sponsor the women's retreat).  Most of the things I even got as giveaways!  Like I mentioned before, all the money you spend gets reinvested into these artisans from third world countries and are donated to organizations like "Zoe."  So go online or call their store (for even more products) and do a little shopping to help someone out!

Also, I've recently received some cool awards and wanted to thank those blog friends for thinking of me.  I received a Sunshine Award (see a previous post for this award) from Debbie at "Thrifty Girl Vintage."   She's an amazing thrifter and has a very fun sense of style!  I also owe a HUGE thank you to Alex at "Of Mice and Minutiae" who gave me the really cool One Lovely Blog Award in April (previous post for this award).  Alex has a refreshingly quirky style that oozes cool (and she's a fantastic writer!).  Finally, Sophie at Country Girl Does Norfolk gave me the Blog Mas Divertido Award.  Sophie has a fabulous eclectic style and can mix clothes flawlessly!

So here's what I have to do:  Thank the person who gave it to me, answer questions, and pick 3 bloggers to pass the award on to (and contact them)...

If you did another blog, what would it be about? 
I'd sell my old clothes.

If you could change your name, what would it be? 
Something unisex like "Alex" or "Ryan"

If you could be born again, would you like to be a man or a woman? 
Woman.  I think it's amazing what we can do!

If you could realize one wish, what would it be? 
Own a pair of Louboutins

If you had a power, which one would you like to have? 
I'd love to be able to fly.

If you had to buy a lot of perfumes from one specific brand, which one would it be? 
Marc Jacobs or those Harajuku Lovers ones cuz they got those cute little dolls.

If you had won a holiday, which place would you like to go to? 
Some cool African safari trip or a shopping trip to Asia!!!

And here are the 3 very different bloggers I'd like to share this award with:

Meagan at Spunky Chateau (creative thrifter who makes vintage feel so fresh!)
Taylor at It's My Cardi (a down to earth mom with a beautifully classic sense of style)
Lexy at Quirky Explosion (wild, fun, eccentric and can pull off patterns and colors like you couldn't imagine!)

Congrats on the new awards. Love the fresh sophisticated look, especially that lovely aqua blue sweater with the whites. I am also a big fan of Heavenly Treasures. They get the most amazing one of a kind tops and their accessories are so unusual and reasonable.
