An Unending Love - Lookbook by Ruche

An Unending Love – Lookbook by Ruche

Look books from Ruche never disappoint me. It always leaves me breathless, delighted, inspired!  I’ve featured their past lookbooks on my blog not only because I love the outfits but also because I love the mood each photo exudes.  Here again, are my favorite looks from this collection.  Oh and if you hop over their blog before Friday, you can join the Unending Love giveaway.

Blog Love: Happenings All Around

It has been a while, (1 whole month to be exact) since I’ve last visited blogs and I can’t tell you enough how much I missed it.  So for today, I’m sharing the happenings all around:
We all love giveaways and there’s some really sweet ones going on right now. Ruche‘s is hosting the “Unending Love” giveaway to promote their fabulous new look book.  Hop over their blog to win $75 worth of gift card.
Dreamy Whites is featuring Jeanne Oliver in an interview. It is an inspiring read especially if you’re planning to start your own business. In celebration of her new line, Jeanne is offering $500 gift card on her blog.
Speaking of new, Kelly Rae Roberts‘ online store is back with goodies that will make your heart flutter. Visit her blog as she talks about her new products or you can hop straight at her shop.
Jen Ramos has a new shop too!  You may have fallen in love with her “I Love You Blogs & Tea”, “I Love You Blogs & Coffee”, and her LOVE prints from Made By Girl.  But you should check out Cocoa & Hearts for her paintings.  To celebrate, she is offering 15% off on everything at Made By Girl.
I also enjoyed meeting Arthur Scott Bailey over at Home & Harmony; reading about Jozen’s little one at Lola’s GirlOh Joy’s vacation in the Bahamas (i’m so envious); i’m loving Julie’s nautical look at Delightful Dozen, specially her necklace; photography sweetness from Magalerie, featured at Paper n Stitch; a cool DIY tip from How About Orange; and listen as Holly Becker from Decor8 talks about her furniture wishlist (i definitely can relate to what she’s saying).
Finally, I’ve been away for too long and it’s exciting to learn that RubyEllen from Cakies and Joy from Oh Joy are both expecting.  Weee! Congratulations moms-to-be!

Do you have a blog, too? If yes, don’t forget leave your blog address. I’d love to visit:)

Miansai Frienship Bracelets

New Blog Banner, Frienship Bracelets & a Giveaway from Miansai

Finally, my connection is back.  How is everyone? I miss the blogging community so much.  I hope everyone’s doing great and I am looking forward to new blog reads.

BTW, if you noticed my blog has a new banner, thanks to an awesome, talented friend.  I’m going to be posting more of his works soon.  What do you think about my new banner?  I personally think it is soooo much better than my old one but still wanted to get the opinion of my readers.  Please, if you have time, kindly share with me your thoughts or suggestions 🙂  It will be so appreciated.

Meanwhile, Michael Saiger has created new styles of friendship bracelets for Miansai‘s Fall 2011 collection and Refinery29 is hosting a giveaway.  You can join here.

Functional & Decorative: Computer Desks

I’m planning to buy a new computer desk and I’ve been looking for some ideas. The desk I’m using now has an overhead shelf and has been designed to hold VGA monitors. It takes up a lot of space and not very pretty.  For my work station, I just want a simple table that will not break my budget. Do you have any suggestions?

What type of computer desk do you use at home?  Would you like to share a photo of how you use it as a functional and decorative piece?  If you want your kitchen space (or your home) to be featured on my blog, please email me at theshopbug@yahoo.com.
