August Sponsor Spotlight + Giveaway

Time to introduce you all to some lovely blogging ladies & to give you a chance to enter to win some awesome prizes!

Dara from Not in Jersey

My name is Dara (rhymes with Sarah!) and I'm from Not in Jersey. I
was born and raised in New Jersey, but moved to Kansas 3 years ago. I
am a stay at home mom to 3 kids - an 8 year old girl, a 6 year old boy,
and a 2 year old boy. I enjoy blogging about all the fun things we do
as a family. I also regularly write about my kids' school work, my
crafts and knitting, our house, running, and books I've read. My blog
is growing and I love meeting new people through it!

Favorite book?: The Time Traveler's Wife
Favorite beauty product?: Eyeliner
Dream vacation destination?: Disney cruise

It's a little bit of this and a little of everything. It has glimpses into my life and some recipes. I guess you could say it is a cross between a mommy blog and a lifestyle blog, even though I have kind of been sucking at blogging lately.

Favorite book?: Too many to choose from!
Favorite beauty product?: Anything from Paul Mitchell, especially their line for curly hair. Not big on makeup.
Dream vacation destination?: Paris

At the end of every month, Betsy & Steph from Not Entirely Perfect hosts a link-up to check in on how well you are doing at completing your 101 in 1001 list or other goals you may have.

I am a museum and culture loving, sometimes recipe cooking, fly by the seat of my pants DIYer, always rocking out and just living life kind of blog. Come join in on the sometimes crazy and usually unorganized but always fun times at Musings of a Museum Fanatic!

Favorite book?: The Enchanted Forest Chronicles
Favorite beauty product?: Bed Head After Party
Dream vacation destination?: African Safari

Rachael from Pretty in Pink

 A twenty something lifestyle blog about happiness, traveling, personal development, being single and fun!

Favorite book?: To Kill a Mockingbird
Favorite beauty product?: Red lipstick
Dream vacation destination?: France

Gayle from Grace for Gayle

Gayle has been writing about her experience as a #Previvor, which is all about preventing genetically high-risks of breast and ovarian cancer. As a nurse, I highly recommend visiting her blog & reading these posts, especially is you have family members who have had cancer.

Hello, Breanna's readers! I'm Gayle from Grace for Gayle, and I live in Dallas, TX with my four fur-kids. I blog about pretty much anything that is NOT parenting, DIY, or cooking. I wear my heart on my sleeve in real life, and that's pretty much what you'll find on my blog. :) Lately, I have been sharing about my experience as a Previvor, and going through a preventative double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery almost two years ago (yes, like Angelina Jolie!). When I'm not blogging, you can find me at the gym, reading a book, hanging with friends, going to the pool, watching Netflix, spending time with God, and eating chips and salsa.

Favorite book?: Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
Favorite beauty product?: Maybelline NY Volum' Express Falsies Flared Mascara in Very Black (waterproof of course!)
Dream vacation destination?: Anything beach-y!!!
