The Dog Days: Panama Edition

Yay.  It's the time of year when you sweat glisten no matter what you wear or what you do (or not do.)  I like to think that a slightly wider-brimmed panama hat helps people from getting too close and seeing the sweat glistening up close <sarcastic laughter - because it's kind of the truth>.

Hat: J.Crew
Top: J.Crew
Skirt: J.Crew
Shoes: Not J.Crew (ha. ha. ha.) Forever21

Light the Night - Let's walk - Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

I know too many people who have experienced cancer.  I can't think of a single reason to not participate....

“Light The Night” is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s main fundraising event of the year. This hour-long fundraising walk is held at sunset, and participants hold illuminated balloons in the air to “Light The Night”. 

Cancer affects everyone, whether it is through a friend, family member, co-worker or neighbor. Luckily, through the hard work and fundraising efforts of “Light The Night” participants, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is able to provide patient support services, advocacy for lifesaving treatments and the most promising cancer research anywhere. 

Participants of all ages are welcome at “Light The Night”, as it is a casual fundraising walk with no fitness requirement.

*This is a Fashionista Events opportunity

Ross Dress for Less Grand Openings (+ a Triple P Giveaway!)

The long-awaited day has finally arrived (at least for me and my very local readers.)  July 20th will mark the Grand Opening at not just the Olathe, KS store, but an entire handful of new stores across the country (including Arizona, Illinois, Tennessee, California, Virginia, Missouri, Nevada, Texas, Maryland, Florida and Oregon.)

When Ross Dress for Less opened the first of many stores in the Kansas City area, they invited bloggers of different niches to a special breakfast where we received some history about the company (and ate some Big Biscuit goodness); this breakfast was of course followed by a little bit of shopping at the new store (see the post and pictures here.)  They offered our amazing readers a giveaway then (and another when the Lawrence store opened) and I will give you three guesses what they would like to offer you all this week (and the first two guesses don't count, lol!)

 Be sure to like their Facebook page.....they will soon be launching their Back-to-School Savings in Style promotion where you’ll have a chance to win three $100 gift cards each week for four weeks!  p.s. they do these facebook giveaways often (so I think the follow is worth it!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

*While I do enjoy shopping at Ross, and all these thoughts and opinions are my own - this post and giveaway are brought to you by Ross Dress for Less.
