Shutterfly Tutorial AND $50 Gift Card Giveaway!

Are you having a happy Thanksgiving Day!? I hope this giveaway makes it even brighter!

I am so excited about today's post! How much do you love Shutterfly? Say, "a lot!" :)

Something I'm thankful for is the opportunity to meet other local {Charleston, SC} bloggers at a Shutterfly event in December... and one of you is going to reap the benefit of it!

Rules for entering the Giveaway can be found below.
One lucky reader is going to win a $50 Gift Card to Shutterfly!

Giveaway entry deadline is 12/07/2012, 11:59 pm EST.

What would you create with $50 at Shutterfly!?
I personally have been wanting to make a family yearbook for sometime now,
so this was the perfect chance to get my butt in gear!


Step 1: From the home page of www.shutterfly.com, select "Photo Books" in the upper left corner and pick a path. I chose the Custom Path.



 Step 2: Select which size book you would like to create, taking note of price differences and dimensions to fit your needs.



 Step 3: Choose a style for your book! If it costs extra, you will notice a "$" on the bottom corner of that style.



Step 4: Finalize your style selection. I chose "Bright and Bold" because I like the colors and stickers. Be sure to check out the backgrounds and embellishments for each style that you like. Cute stickers really do help a lot!



 Step 5: Upload pictures from your computer, Shutterfly itself, other share sites, Facebook, and/or Instagram.



Step 6: Get styling! Don't be shy- click images, right click, double-click, delete, toggle, move side-to-side, change backgrounds, and add stickers. If you're feeling not-so-creative, you can purchase idea pages so all you have to do is insert your own pictures. :)



Ready to create your own Photo Book, Cards,
2013 Calendar, Photo Prints, or Home Decor!?!?

5 Minute, Easy Updo

You know those mornings where you need to take a quick shower and don't have time to blow dry??? Plenty of them to go around...
 
I put my hair in this updo at least 3-4 times a month!:)


 
 
In the above picture I had my hair parted like I do when I wear it down, but I actually like this even better when I comb it back nicely (no part).
 
Also, the messier the french braid the cooler it looks! :)
 
 
Here is a {super blurry} picture that I took when we were on our Bahama cruise...
{no part, messier french braid- actually love this way better!}
 
 




I'd love to know if you give it a try and how it turns out!

The Effective, Non-Toxic Pressure Wash!



Have you pressure washed your home yet since the summertime pollen and smudge left its mark? We were so late on it- really bad with a white house!

Get your pressure washer out and grab your Basic H2 and Basic G! I squeezed a good bit of Basic H2 in the bucket (still not enough to touch the bottle) and then a few splashes of Basic G. This was Kent's first time ever pressure washing so it isn't perfect, but I think he did an amazing job and it feels so NICE to come home to our bright, white house again. :)

Warning: Before pictures are embarrassingly dirty. Oops.


 
 


Gorgeous again, right?!?! My dad was convinced we'd have to go out and buy bleach, but I knew Basic H2 and Basic G could do the job without all the toxic grossness!

J and I had a blast passing the football in the front yard while Kent pressure washed and I never had to worry about bleach mist getting on us. :)

 
 
You can use any of the above links to get to buy BasicH2 and Basic G
or click on the picture below! :)
