I'm a Featured Designer on 9thandelm and!

Hi guys! I have some exciting news, I was contacted about 2 weeks ago through my facebook page to be a featured designer on Of course I jumped at the opportunity and today my feature went live. You can check it out here.  By the way, my shop just recently made a year this month on Etsy :)

I was also featured on a couple of weeks ago as well. You can read that post here. The blogger for shopgirldaily found me through my etsy shop and asked me if I would like to be featured on her Etsy Monday post. She asked me a few questions and week later I was featured! 

I can't tell you how honored I am that bloggers and companies are reaching out to me to be featured. When I started on this journey a year ago by opening up my shop I thought I would have to find the bloggers and reach out to companies to feature me to help promote my product, but so far I haven't had to do any of that. I just promote on Facebook and Instagram, which by the way I hope you follow me on those media outlets (it's the best way to stay updated on coupon codes and flash sales!).  I'm so excited and look forward to the new things to come with my shop as I plan on expanding it a bit this year so please stay tuned for that.

What's in My Louis Vuitton Alma Bag

The LV Alma bag is one of my favorites because it holds so much and is very lightweight. Here's what I carry in mine from day to day. 

The hot Pink fur ball bag charm can be found in my etsy shop. Link here
I do a lot of promotional work for several different companies so the only way I can keep up with the jobs I take is to carry around a planner. This one by PlanAhead it perfect. It's about 7.5x10 inches so it fits nicely in most of my bags. I always have my oscar de la renta aviators with me too, they go perfectly with everything. 

 I'm never without my Samsung tablet. This one is the 7 inch, it goes everywhere with me. As does hand sanitizer, ice breaker mints, Nivea lip balm and Revlon lip gloss. 
I've stop carrying a wallet and just use my Kate spade card holder as a wallet now. It actually holds quite a lot and since I don't really carry cash anyway it's makes the most sense for me. I always have my Samsung phone on me as well.  

What are some of your most carried items in your bag?

How to: Scrunch Bottom Bikini

So I only thought about doing a blog post half way through when I was making these bottoms, which is why there are so few pics. I will post the video I saw on youtube on how to make these at the end of this post.. Luckily they are super easy to make and only took me about 5 minutes from start to finish. 
Turning a regular pair of bikini bottoms into scrunch bottoms works especially well if your bottoms are a little too big, or if they got stretched out due to wear. 

 Mark a line down the middle as far down as you want it to go, the further down you go the more bottom cheek your going to show. This was my first go at it so I think I went a little too far down, but you get the idea. Also, you can remove the back liner if you want it to sit more flush against your skin. In the video the girl removes the back liner, I just left it alone in mine since I just plan on using these to tan in my backyard.

Just sew it straight down in an in and out motion and add a few extra stiches to the top when you start and the bottom when your down to secure it. It's super fast and easy and even if you never sewed before you can do it. 

Here's the youtube how to video.
