Itty Bitty Beauty Swap Show Off!

I've been trying to break into the blogging world more.. Ya know, get my face and name out there, so I recently decided to join in on a beauty swap hosted by Chaotic Goddess Swaps in hopes of connecting with some new (new to me) bloggers.

I love who I was partnered with; Tiffanie seriously couldn't be any sweeter of a person.  We have way too much in common and she has an adorable little boy, who is also turning 3 this year, just like Olivia!  She ever so sweetly included some princess stickers and a birthday girl pin for Liv! Needless to say, she LOVES them.

Want to see what I got?!?
Mary Kay Eye Makeup Remover -- I've been told by many that it's the best!
E.L.F Eyelid Primer and Shadowy Eye Kit
Maybelline Light Pink Blush
Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara

I love it all and can't wait to attempt a shadowy eye look!
Thank you so much Tiffanie!!

Starbucks E-Gift Card Giveaway

It's day 2 of giveaways here at Happily Rambling! 
Today myself and the beautiful Miss Angie are giving away a $15usd Starbucks E-Gift Card to one of our gorgeous readers.

Now you know who I am, but what about the other gift card contributor, Angie?
She is a genius blogger, designer, and creator. She designed my blog and has opened up a world of opportunities online for me and my business.  I couldn't be more grateful that I stumbled across her blog a few months ago and I have a hunch that many others feel the same way.  So I am beyond thrilled she is joining in a giveaway with me
In the last few months she has opened a shop through Storenvy with nothing but awesome unique items.  She, ever so sweetly, describes it best...
"Chaotic Creations by My So-Called Chaos is a place that came about as a creative outlet.  I love to create things, but keeping all of those things (even giving them away) can be a problem, so why not sell them and help support my habit of creating!  I love when the things I make find a happy home that will love them!"

Enjoy a latte on us while browsing through Chaotic Creations by MSCC.
 Use code MAYFLOWERS for 25% off any flower hair clips until May 31.
 Worldwide Giveaway
The winner will be contacted via email and will be sent an E-Gift Card after the first initial email.
What's your favorite coffee or espresso drink?  For years I have sworn by a Venti 6-shot Iced Americano with White Mocha & Peppermint syrups but lately I have fallen in love with the Iced Hazelnut Macchiato with extra hazelnut drizzle, YUM!

Don't forget to enter my other giveaway for FREE Ad Space and a FREE Blog Design!

Monday, Monday // Late Weekend Wrap-Up

This has been such a busy week.  I'm going to do a quick update on a few defining moments, starting with the most random.  My best friend, Rich, and I randomly worked the VIP Check-In/Pre-Show at a Tim Mcgraw (definitely not my type of tunes) in Pennsylvania and ya know what?  It was a LOT of fun.

 Rich decided to be festive.

I've been to and worked a LOT of shows during my life and I have NEVER seen this amount of people come for just one band. It was crazy, not to mention a gold mine for people watching.

My garden has finally taken off.  I think our cool days are behind us. Unfortunately, I lost a lot of plants to frost but I've got a lot of seeds germinating in paper towels and ziplocs, hopefully they grow quickly!

 Peppers & Squash

These get about 10.5-11 hours of sunlight a day. The top box has a mix of Hot Peppers, Okra, and Kaleidoscope Carrots, the bottom box has squash and tomatoes.
 Tomatoes & various Bush Beans

In my front yard, in planters, I have Rosemary, Sweet Basil, Cilantro, and Green Leaf Lettuce.  I'm also going to plant a Dragon Tongue bean bush in my flower bed.  I really cannot wait for my edible landscape.

 I have some great news about My Etsy Shop!!
Someone from Sassoon Salon in NYC bought a variety of my products!  I'm guessing/hoping they want to test them out.  I really hope they'll be impressed with what they get.

They got.....
