Sponsor Spotlight: BonBon Rose Girls

Meet the BonBon Rose Girls, Kristin and Megan, two best friends that have created an amazing blogging phenomenon...

Bon Bon Rose Girls
Hi Megan and Kristin! I love that you two are best friends living miles apart but still in constant contact. What’s it like sharing a blog together and how did you come up with BonBon Rose Girls?
K: We started the blog as a creative outlet and it's turned into so much more! I can't imagine doing this without Meg. I think the same reason that we complement each other as friends is the same reason our blog works. We bring different things to the table and it all melds together wonderfully!
M: We came up with the idea as a way for us to do something fun together even though we live far apart. We both love to write and the blog was a way to share the things we love. The best part though is that I get to see pics of what she's up to even when I'm out and about, ha!

It’s so cool that you two created your own BonBon Rose Girls Network. What triggered the idea? How has it been working out so far for your Rosebuds?
K: We noticed the incredible success of other amazing networks out there and we thought that it would be killer to have a place where our fabulous readers could interact and support each other!
M: The idea was all Kristin (she's being modest) but I quickly realized she was onto something. What a fun way for all our bloggy friends to find each other and to hear what others are up to!
Bon Bon Rose Girls
Being a big fan of the beverage, your Champagne Saturday posts make me want to pop the cork off of my favorite bottle and sit back and relax. What do you enjoy most about this weekly tradition?
K: As a stay at home mama, I don't get to get all dolled up as much as I did pre-dude (A.K.A. my son), so our Champagne Saturday features are usually a chance for me to hit myself with a pretty stick and enjoy an adult beverage or two!
M: Since my hubbby is a photographer I particularly enjoy the looks my neighbors give me as I pose with my glass of bubbly in the front yard. Plus, I'm with Kristin on this, its a chance to break out of my comfort zone (aka black shirt and jeans) and put on something fun!
Bon Bon Rose Girls
What’s an example of your favorite posts?
K: One of my favorite recent posts was where we did a profile on one of our Rosebud Network members The Beauty File. We both crush on Miroslava Duma's style and l just love drawing inspiration from other bloggers! Plus, I'm still fairly obsessed with the BonBon Deal of the Day sandals that I featured!
M: I really love the post I did on a unique way to serve Caprese Salad. Cooking for my family and friends is one of my passions, so this is a perfect reflection of me!

Thank you so much BonBon Rose Girls for being such lovely sponsors!

Bits of my Thursday

Remember this jumpsuit. Someone bought it from my shop and never paid, so I turned it into a romper.
Bits of my Thursday
Playing with my new iPhone 4. We went six days without cell phones. It felt so 1999.
Love the album, Lungs. This is my ringtone.

Watched a little Anne.

This is not a test

This is not a test
Cole, Wellie, Pip, Maisy and I are now at my parents' for the rest of the week. After packing up the car, driving to Royal Oak, and then unpacking the car, we decided to do a quick shoot at Maxwell park. Also, this coming Tuesday, Cole and I will be seeing The National in concert! Anyone else going to that concert at the Royal Oak Music Theatre?

Thank you so much for all the really kind comments on the last few posts! I'm so glad you all like my new JC boots. I swear I want to cuddle with them in bed. ;)

My little ruffle dress made its way home. This was one of the dresses, I passed around to the Delightful Dozen girls. I haven't styled it for my blog in over a year and looking back on last year's photos make me laugh just a little bit.

Below, is a photo of a lovely deer that wanted to stop our drive down the dusty back road. I wish I had a proper zoom lens on my camera, but the photo turned out better than I would have thought. I named the deer, Bradley, in honor of my boots.

When the ever sweet Cat, of Bride Blu, asked if I would like to model her Anabelle milky turquoise necklace, I said "Yes, Please!" It's so simple and sweet that I couldn't wait to style it with my newly returned dress. I think what I adore most about the necklace is, like the description says, that it's more milky than clear. It has a gorgeous opaque quality.

Maisy and Wellie were being so funny. While I was attempting to take these photos with my tripod and remote, they thought I was holding treats in my hand. Nope, sorry dogs, just the remote. Poor little Pip was in his crate, so he missed out on the action.

I'm sporting my new Jeffrey Campbell Bradley boots. They are going to be my wardrobe workhorse this fall and winter. I bought them a whole size too big so I can wear them with thick boot socks and woolly tights. I love how they look so much like a pair of hiking boots my mom used to wear in the 90's. Hopefully she still has them.

Anyone else being weird like me and buying fall/winter footwear?

Happy Tuesday!

This is Tieka's skirt and another Delightful Dozen swap! I don't normally wear a lot of pink or pencil skirts, but this was pretty fun to style! I felt it called for a prim school girl look with the western bow tie and bowler hat.

I loved the cement railroad marker post...47 miles to Detroit!
