{Featured Sponsor} July

Happy July 1st!  July 4th is right around the corner for us here in the USA so things are getting pretty exciting!  This month I wanted to feature one of my Sponsors, Daina.  You might know her from  New York State of Mind, where she shares all of her adventures in New York.  She is such a sweet and kind person and you can get to know a little more about her right now, so enjoy!

Here’s a little blurb about my blog: 

Hi! I’m Daina. I moved to New York City in 2003 to attend NYU and instantly fell in love with my new home. Years later, I still pinch myself as I walk through the city to make sure I am not dreaming. The energy, people, and sights are unlike anywhere else. I feel very lucky to be a New Yorker!

1. What is your favorite hobby?

One of my favorite hobbies is photography. I have had a passion for photography since I took my first class in junior high. I went on to take a second class in high school, and then a semester course while I studied abroad in Italy during college. Much of what I learned in those classes has been forgotten over the years, but the desire to capture my life and experiences from behind a camera has remained. After starting my blog a few years ago, my passion for photography grew. I was incredibly inspired by the blogs I read, and wanted to take my point and shoot style of picture taking to the next level. I invested in my first digital SLR camera, researched and purchased a few lenses, and started seeing my life and New York City in a whole new light through my camera. What I love about photography is that it has allowed me to appreciate things in my life that I might not have noticed without my camera in hand. New York City is such an amazing place, and I feel so lucky to get to capture it with my camera and share it on my blog

2. What is a current goal that you have made?

One of my most recent goals I set was to travel abroad. I have had the travel itch since my last big trip abroad, which was to Brazil in 2007. When my friend Joanna emailed me a few months about her Habitat Global Village build in Malawi, I knew I had to go! I am so excited to explore Africa this summer and build a home for a family in need in Mzuzu, Malawi. It will be an adventure unlike any other I have taken. 

3. What are you most thankful for? Why?

I am thankful for so many things in my life, it is hard to choose just one! I am so incredibly thankful to have a career that I wholeheartedly love. I started teaching second grade at a charter school in Brooklyn four years ago, and feel so fortunate to absolutely love where I work and what I do. My school strives to teach children to see the connections between school and the world. Our curriculum is social studies based, and each grade focuses on a few studies throughout the school year. In second grade, we study urban parks, transportation, and the history of the Brooklyn Bridge. I love taking my kids out into the city to teach them about their community. I wake up every day excited to go to work and teach! I am constantly inspired by the people I work with and my students. 

I am also thankful for the love in my life. I would not be the person I am today without the love and support from my family, friends, and boyfriend Brian. I am a very lucky girl! 

4. Any links that you would like to share: 

Thank you so much, Daina, for not only allowing me to feature you, but also so being such a sweet and amazing Sponsor!  You have such a kind heart and I’m so excited to see that you’re living a happy and inspired life.  I can’t wait to hear all about your trip, so be safe and take some amazing photos!  Thanks again! ♥rl

Lovely Sponsors

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I wanted to take a moment from everything that I’m doing and give a big thank you to all of my lovely sponsors!  You are all so fabulous and I’m so happy to be working with each and every one of you.

Take a moment and visit each of them.  They have so much to offer.

{pinhole press} I love Pinhole Press because they can put your photos on virtually anything!  You name it, notepads, lemonade bottles, cards, etc!  I love how they strive to make your life a more beautiful and happier place by allowing you to surround yourself with your favorite images.  Love them!

{take it personally} How creative are these personalized invitations?!  I love the time and creativity that are put into each and every order.  This beats running over to Target and grabbing the same invitations that your girl friend used for her last party.  So super sweet!

{prairie hen}  Meet Sara!  She’s a young and energetic mama with lots to share on her blog.  She has so many  cute outfits, craft posts, “being a mama” posts, and so much more!  I love stopping by to read what she’s been up to, so make sure you stop by too!

{blue eyed night owl} (image source) If you love owls, this is seriously the blog for you, no joke!  You will meet a vibrant and creative owl lover who shares everything from owls to photography.  She shares so many cute images and keeps you up on her life’s adventures.

{fabric shoppe} Meet Jody, owner of the Fabric Shoppe.  This wife, mama, and crafty lady shares so many different types of fabric on her blog, as well as tutorials and all around creative inspiration!  I love to stop by and see what sweet fabric she has up this time!

Thanks for taking the time to visit all of my super sweet sponsors!  I’ll see you all tomorrow 🙂

Monday Mission/August Sponsors

Today I’m on a mission to get as much done for the new launch as possible.  I have so much to do in so little time, and I’m excited to share what I’ve been working on!  I might need to grab a Starbucks today to get me through the day, but I’ll manage (smile).

I’m also now excepting AUGUST SPONSORS for only $5/month (or $13/3months)!!!  So if you’re interested, click here.  Chickiedee has 935 Twitter Followers and the site gets about 5,000+ visitors each month.  Starting August 1st, Chickiedee is expanding from only baby products to products for women and babies.  From there, it will expand to men as well (hopefully by the Fall).  So, I’m only going to reach a larger audience by expanding.  Your sponsorship helps me to spread the word for all of us!

Have a great Monday and I’ll see you tomorrow.
