June Sponsor Shout Out

Oh man. My two sponsors have some awesome stuff to share this month. So if you usually skip over these posts, don’t. First up, the Original Sponsor herself, Brandi from A Brandi Sized Shop. She’s got several items that would be totally adorable popped into a frame and hung as wall art.

And last but not least, a vintage faux-leather camera bag that’s probably too small for a big DSLR but just right for using as a purse. My diaper bag is a similar color/material/style and I love that it goes with almost everything. I get lots of compliments on it.

Next up, Michelle from the blog Dixie Lust. Michelle shares some serious southern eye candy on her blog. I was practically spellbound by her beautiful photos from one of my favorite places on earth, LSU’s campus.

Ahhhhh, memories. Even though we still live within walking distance of LSU I can’t remember the last time I did more than drive around the perimeter. Seeing these photos taken in the heart of campus makes me so nostalgic. I appreciated the beautiful surroundings every time I stepped onto campus as a student and I miss it now (though I don’t miss the homework!). You can see more photos here.

Michelle also does restaurant reviews and these two photos from restaurants in Lafayette, LA and Orange Beach, AL had me practically drooling.

It seems like I am always hearing people talk about how much they despise living here in Baton Rouge-it’s corrupt, polluted, bigoted, and boring-but it is so nice to see Michelle just totally embracing life in Louisiana and the South in general. I’m a “bloom where you’re planted” kinda gal and I think you can find beauty and wonder in any locale. You must be the change you wish to see in the world, right?

I can’t say thank you enough to Brandi and Michelle for sponsoring my blog. They both have such great stuff to share and I’m happy to partner with them. If you have a blog, etsy shop, or small business and are interested in becoming a blog sponsor you can check out all the details here. Thanks for reading, y’all! One more day til Friday!

      We do! When I hear people say BR is ugly I want to tell them they’re not hanging out in the right part of town!
