Quickie Giveaway: Restock Your School and Office Supplies with BIC!

 I don't know if this is common in other households, but in the Smith house, we go through school supplies very quickly. It probably has to do with the slight obsession that the girls and I have with pens, paper, and office/school supplies in general, but whatever the case, we love pens-and this selection from BIC is no exception! So I'm ecstatic to be able to offer one lucky lovely to same selection to replenish your school supply stores. {Products were sent for consideration}

Soap & Paper Factory Presents: The Bella Collection

For Soap & Paper Factory, inspiration for scents in the Bella Collection {products sent for editorial consideration} came from loved ones and loved places. Bella {the scent that I was sent, ha!}, a combines Bergamot, Grapefruit and Black Pepper to create a citrus-flavored explosion with a bit of sass {which is fitting, as it was inspired by its 15 year old namesake}. The scent Midnight uses Jasmine, Tuberose and Citrus aromas. Finally, Close, a grounded and well-balanced scent features Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Oakmoss.

The Only Pen You'll Need for the Next 7 Years...

The Seven Year Pen from Seltzer Goods (pictured on top of my Erin Condren Life Planner)

Before my obsession with beauty products began, my heart belonged to stationary. For as long as I can remember, I've obsessively hoarded collected pens, pencils, markers, notebooks, and post its. Yes, it's a bonafide obsession. I don't know if it stems from the fact that I'm a writer or what, but there is nothing in the world to me like a good pen and the smell of brand new paper. Let's just say back to school supply shopping is like a holiday for me! So you'll understand why I was completely intrigued when I was sent an email about a pen that claims to last 7 YEARS! I quickly responded, letting the PR rep know that I was interested in featuring this wonder of a pen, and color me surprised when it arrived!

Bath & Body Works + Matthew Robbins (A Press Release)

I generally don't just flat out post press releases, but I've already divulged my love for all things Bath & Body Works so I feel comfortable sharing this tidbit with you lovelies! I've always been obsessed with home fragrance and am a huge fan of BBW's Wallflowers and candles, so I was super intrigued by this information regarding their collaboration with celebrity event designer, Matthew Robbins. Combine that with my sudden (and inexplicable) preoccupation with Spring Cleaning-and I can honestly tell you, I can't wait to implement some of these tips myself! {I was not paid to share this information; I just thought you lovelies may find it interesting and helpful!}

This might be the most awesomest center piece I've ever seen!

Everybody Loves a Winner! AKA: My Win from The Organized Parent and Cid Pear

If you know me IRL, you know that I have had a life long obsession with pens and paper. I can't really explain it, other than perhaps it's the writer in me-I'm so paranoid that the perfect line/thought will come to me and I will not have pen and paper on hand to write it down. And even in this age of technology, where just about everything can be accomplished via your handy dandy smart phone (I heart you iPhone 5), for me there is nothing that compares to the satisfaction of exorcising my thoughts by putting pen to paper. So I collect. And collect. One of the subcategories of paper that I collect (because each notebook/pad/etc. is meant for totally unique purposes) are organizers and pads for lists. In that vein, I recently had the pleasure of winning a giveaway from The Organized Parent (one of my favorite organizational sites) that included one of the most awesomest (yeah I said "awesomest") prizes ever!

Gift the "Hostess with the Mostess" with Roux Maison!

I hate doing laundry. Well, technically, I hate folding laundry and putting it away. The sorting and actual washing is ok-but I hang a lot of our clothes to dry to in order to maintain their size, color, and shape and it's a general pain in my backside. But I digress...

I think it has been fairly well established that I like for things to smell good. That goes for my household products as well, including laundry detergent. So I surely would not turn up my nose (or even be mildly offended) if someone graciously gifted me with the luxury, eco friendly goodness that is Roux Maison laundry products..
