Lenovo Bluetooth Speaker, New Studio & *GIVEAWAY*!

Today I am so thrilled to partner with Lenovo to show you my new studio AND my new Bluetooth speakers that make working in the studio so fun and easy. Gotta have me some tunes spinning to get in my writing groove. And for Friday Deadlines-are-Done Dance Parties, DUH. Enter this slick little baby, which is only 1.6 pounds and can sit horizontal like I have it or vertical, and offers a 270-degree sound experience.

I absolutely LOVE the portability of this all-in-one speaker (major plus for this biz owner: it turns into a microphone + speakerphone for taking calls!). It offers up to 4 hours of wireless listening, then just plug it into your computer to keep listening and charge it up.

This is where you’ll see most of my instagram outfit selfies…my giant awesome Art Deco antique mirror. This is the real-deal, a true antique with so much pizazz it makes the whole room dazzle.
Where the writing magic happens. One of mom’s paintings hangs above my desk (she is a fine artist and shares the other half of the studio with me). Since the Lenovo bluetooth speaker has such power and is so easily portable, it can head over to visit mom’s side of the studio for a field trip. But that’s another post entirely! 
Pretty dresses hanging to keep me inspired, with Audrey keeping a watchful eye on things, of course.
Office essentials: Iced coffee, pink pens and my Lenovo bluetooth speaker. I love how sleek the speaker is, it just melts into the surroundings with a modern look. 
More office essentials, including the “Open” sign I made with a paint pen and a leftover-Ikea-cabinet door-piece-random-thing.
How much are we loving this vintage needlepoint I picked up? I think it’s so great how the 70’s needlepoint, the classic clock and the modern speaker still look good together. 
In the other corner is this odd curio cabinet, built-in, but at an angle. I’ve filled it with very necessary things: 

What girl doesn’t need a grown-up pair of pink sparkle mary-jane’s in case of party emergency? (rhetorical question, I know)


SPEAKING OF PARTIES, and speaking of speakers (I crack myself up), I get to GIVE AWAY one of these fabulous speakers to one of my fabulous readers! This couldn’t be more exciting!
Somebody turn up the Lenovo speaker with the dance music!

Here are the details, with up to FIVE entries per person:

I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.

Firmoo Review & Giveaway


It’s June! Lovely June, one of the fairest months of all, don’t you think? Quite lovely indeed, if I do say so myself (and I do! :)). Time for long dresses, sunglasses, and iced coffee. Did I mention sunglasses? Ya’ll know I have a soft spot in my heart for sunglasses, but sometimes with allergies I just cannot wear my contacts and that makes sunglasses almost impossible! Prescription sunglasses can be SO expensive.


But not from Firmoo. I desperately needed some new ones, as my old ones I’ve had since I was 15 (the frames were Salvatore Ferragamo and were actually my everyday glasses until I got a new pair and replaced the lenses with sunglasses). Those Ferragamo frames are actually still just fine but were about three prescriptions outdated, though, and since I’m not ready for fit-overs yet in my youth, it was well-due time for a new pair.


These are a really fun gray and black animal print with a slight cat eye. They are currently only available in red (odd?). The order process with Firmoo is perhaps the smoothest of all the online ordering I’ve done of glasses, and Firmoo is constantly running great deals. The glasses shipped to me directly from production in China, which bothered me slightly but was a surmountable obstacle. The price is great, and the quality is just fine. True, they aren’t Ferragamo, but the price wasn’t even close to Ferragamo either!


I got an 80% tint (I use these mostly for driving and I like dark glasses for driving) and of course an anti-reflective coating and UV protection (non-negotiables for me, especially for driving). Each additional coating is a slight increase in price, but certainly nothing compared to the cost at a traditional optometrist.

I think these pink and animal print frames would make fantastic sunglasses for summer! 
Now for the best part! Firmoo has been generous enough to let me give away (!!!) five (FIVE) (!!!!!!!!!!!!) codes for $30 off frames. There are a lot of frames under or just over $30 that include free single-vision lenses, meaning you’d be able to get the frames for free or almost-free and just pay for lenses (and shipping, does not apply to discounted products) if you, like me, have a very high prescription or add on the bells and whistles. This is so exciting!

Up to three entries per person: If you’d love to add some fun new eyeglasses or sunglasses to your wardrobe this summer, leave a comment here for one entry. You can earn another entry by following me on Twitter (@fashionatalie). You can earn a third entry by tweeting about the contest here: Click to Tweet!

Please leave me a separate comment under this post for each entry.
Contest closes at midnight on Friday, June 6.
Have fun and happy sunglasses shopping!

Minted Giveaway

{my sewing/craft space with Paris Map from Minted and a photo of me and my mom in Paris}
A pink map of Paris. 
Can anything say “Natalie” more?!
I just love my new pink Paris map from Minted (thanks, Minted)! Seriously, though, I went to a dozen stores and could NOT find a frame I even remotely liked, so that’s still on the back burner while washi tape holds it up in the meanttime. I also love my vintage-style metal nail bin, which now holds craft supplies, and my giant wooden @ sign. Fun things! Tablecloth I made from Amy Butler fabric, and it matches my stools perfectly. 
But back to my Paris print, which I adore, from Minted. One of the many cool things about Minted is that their offerings are created by a community of independent artists all around the world. This is real art, created by real artists. My Paris print is created by Four Wet Feet Design (look at her other gorgeous designs here!). Check out Minted’s gorgeous art prints, holiday cards, custom stationary, and more. I’m sure you’ll love it!

I’m so sure you’ll love it that I am so excited to be able to offer one winner a 
$75 credit to minted.com
 Crazy-good right?

The contest is open today Monday, October 7th-October 11th at midnight ET.


Adventuring with KIND & a Giveaway

Y’all know how much I love a good adventuring day, be it hiking, trail running, antiquing, going to a local festival…anything unique and fun I find along the way!

I am always on the lookout for gluten-free, healthful snacks to throw in my bag or a back pocket for adventuring. This is much easier said than done, because all manner of granola and snack bars contain the dreaded gluten. Or taste terrible. Lose-lose.

Hello, KIND bars. I found KIND bars in an airport a few years ago (which was an extra-awesome find, since gluten-free food in an airport is even harder to come by). I LOVE these bars. I can’t get over them…because they are nuts, but they aren’t crunchy. They are a bit syrupy to make them chewy, but they only have 4g of sugar. And the flavors? Outta this world. Seriously. Cashew-Ginger Spice. Madagascar Vanilla Almond. Dark Chocolate, Nuts, and Sea Salt. Dark Chocolate Chili Almond. Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt. To name a few! These are bars for the adventuring gluten-free foodie. Win-win-WIN.
Their tagline? “Make Junk Food Nervous.”
Love that.

This summer, hop on your bike, in your car, in your canoe, or climb a tree and go repelling or zip lining or SOMETHING cool…just go adventuring!
Make sure to grab a KIND bar (or two or three ’cause they’re that good) to throw in your bag. You will thank me later. 
The best part?
I get to give away a MONTH’S supply of KIND bars to one reader!
I kid you not I’m a little jealous because that means approximately 72 KIND bars are yours for the eating and taking-on-adventure-ing. 
Whatchya gotta do to enter? 

Take a look at KIND’s website and tell me what your favorite flavor is in a comment (one mandatory entry).

Bonus entries for following KIND snacks on Facebook and/or Twitter and me on any social media channel. Just leave me a separate comment for each entry. Giveaway open until midnight EST, Monday, June 10. Open to US residents.
Have fun!

Minted Love

Goodness, gracious I’m a paper girl. From the time I was little and created dozens of Victorian calling-cards, I’ve loved the feel and look of high-quality paper. Now, I’ve found a wide variety of gorgeous Minted business cards (which have somewhat sadly replaced my handmade calling cards). I swoon over them! You’ve seen Minted.com before, right? Amazing paper goods for the grown-up paper lover, like me.

Here are a few of my favorites: 
Also, let’s just take a minute to drool over a few pretty inspiration boards:

We all know I LOVE (like, love-love) mint green, and how pretty is this stunning wedding inspiration board featuring mint and green?

And now that I live in Florida again, I’m craving these bright colors and retro vibes. They are just SO FUN! Bonus? They also coordinated with my beloved mint green!
The best part?
This is a GIVEAWAY post 🙂
That means, you, lovely readers, have the opportunity to win a $50 credit to minted.com.
