Counting Down to Spring: eShakti

I don’t know about you but I am dying for spring to arrive. I am over cold weather, jackets, and needing layers. I am ready for lots of sunshine, airy fabrics, and my toes getting out of socks and into flip-flops! Last year I had the opportunity to review eShakti’s beautiful clothing lines (remember this adorable green shirtdress?) and when they contacted me about the launch of their new spring collection, I gladly agreed!

It was so hard to choose from all of the cute options but I ultimately chose this cute little number:

eShakti-Review

I love dresses for spring but I typically stick to solid colors (especially black) so I took a leap of faith and went completely out of my comfort zone with this print but it totally paid off! I am in love! I feel sassy and beautiful! I feel like it fits my body in all the right places! One of my favorite things about this company is just about every piece is customizable! Not only do they make each item specifically for you using your measurements, you can also alter the sleeves, length, and add (or remove) pockets to meet your specific needs. I’m not a huge fan of my arms so I prefer to have them covered so I was able to add cap sleeves as well as adjust the length of the dress so I can feel completely comfortable and beautiful in my new dress!

Some of my other favorites include this illusion mesh print dress and anchor print dress! I think I am now hooked on prints!

Definitely head over to eShakti and check out their Spring line! If you find something you love, you can use the code NEWKNDFNRM to save 20% off your order through March 20th!

eShakti Clothing Review

I am always looking for clothes to make me feel pretty and confident. This summer I was contacted by eShakti to do review their site and do a clothing review of their product lines and after a quick scan of their website, I gladly said yes!

For a little background on the company, eShakti “is a unique women’s apparel store online that includes custom capabilities allow shoppers to easily tailor any item to their specific requirements ensuring a flattering fit and unique look. Unlike traditionally tailored clothing, eShakti’s incredibly quick turnaround time allows customers to receive their custom-made look within a week of ordering!”

I was really interested in the custom tailoring as I am sure I am not the only woman who has trouble making sure a dress fits in the bust and the waist! I also loved the retro/vintage feel of many of the product lines!After much debate, I decided to try out the Retro Poplin Shirtdress in Jade Green:

eShakti Product Review - Retro Shirtdress

 

I absolutely love this dress! The fit is absolutely perfect so I am very pleased with the custom tailoring! I feel beautiful and even a bit sexy! Look out! I have gotten so many compliments when I have worn this dress out which helps boost my confidence quite a bit!

I have been browsing the fall collections and would love to do some more shopping! Be sure to check out eShakti as they are currently having a 25% off sale on their fall collections! You can also find them on Facebook and Pinterest! Happy shopping!

*Giveaway* My Memories Digital Scrapbook Software

What better way to kick off the week than with a giveaway!

 

If you have been a reader long, you know that I love pictures! Especially after being gifted my Nikon DSLR. Whether its formal shots (like at a studio) or snapshots around the house I love them all! I think its a trait I inherited from my mom. She could totally be on hoarders for pictures of the grandbabies. She talks to them and kisses them. Maybe we need to sign her up for Intervention instead. Now y’all know where I get my craziness from but I digress.

 

I have two problems that interfere with my love of pictures:

1- An almost 3 year old who doesn’t slow down long enough to snap a shot or she will be doing something cute (like singing)  for 20 minutes but as soon as the camera comes out she stops. She’s realized that our phones have cameras too. Nuts.

2- Energy or lack-thereof. When I first became a mom, I went crazy buying scrapbook supplies to start Abby’s lifebook. Not sure where I thought all my free time was going to come from but I had good intentions. Unfortunately those scrapbook supplies sat in my closet for months. Oops. I did manage to get some money back when I sold them on Craigslist when I accepted the fact that I would never be a scrapbooker or so I thought…

 

Then I heard about a wonderful invention called digital scrapbooking software. It is a great way to create a scrapbook of your memories without the hassle and expense for traditional scrapbooking. Another perk of digital scrapbooking? No clean-up or storage required! I loved how completed scrapbook pages looked but I hated dealing with finding a place to store the papers, embellishments, scissors, etc that would be organized and convenient. I would have much rather spent the time I took to unload and pack up my supplies with my family so when I was contacted by MyMemories to try out their software I was stoked!

 

MyMemories Suite  is a “complete digital scrapbooking solution that provides a comprehensive powerful set of creative tools no other scrapbook software can offer. With its intuitive workspace and enhanced time-saving features, this application is perfect for a beginner to create a complete album in minutes, or to empower the design pro to build a scrapbook album masterpiece.”

 

I love that this scrapbook software is completely customizable to your skill level! You can choose to build your pages from professionally designed templates or create completely on your own using a wide variety of papers, embellishments, and text! Here is a sample of what I was able to create in a matter of minutes:

My Memories Digital Scrapbook Software Giveaway

 I loved that there was a wide range of paper, fonts, and embellishments available so I was able to put my personality into the layout. I would classify myself as a girly-girl but not a sweet girly-girl if that makes sense. I love pink but like to take my pink with a little edge on it! Grays and black of course are other favorites! I chose to not go with pink on this page because I loved the blue matched up with the gray houndstooth! I am officially in love with this software! Did I mention that there was nothing to clean up? 🙂
