Social as a Butterfly, Busy as a Bee

Click HERE to enter the Karina Dress GIVE AWAY- Winner is announced Thursday, May 10th
Happy Monday, peeps!

I've been a busy little rosebud, doing all sorts of things, some fun, some just busy-ness. Let me tell you, I'm liking the fun stuff, but the get-done/TO-DO list, uh, not so much. Sigh. I'm getting settled in my new digs (which I like alot!) and I've got a million not very sexy errands to run, when I'd much rather be....THRIFTING! I have been lurking shamelessly over in my neighborhood Goodwill and spending all my time and money there. It is smack dab in the middle between my and my boyfriend's casas, so it's too easy to "just drop in and see what's on sale." I've been hitting the thrifter's jackpot there + so, need to get busy and put some of the goodies up in my shop. Ahem. But that's on the TO-DO list- so not as much fun as drinking coffee, hanging with the boyfriend or walking my beautiful neighborhood and posting pictures of it up on Instagram.  

And I'm loving my new job. But, as fun as my new job is,  I think I may keep the details of it private. I will share with you that it's a great little local spot that serves up a mean dish and a song + the folks there are nice as (pizza) pie. Let's leave it at that for now, shall we?

Enough of the offline life: here on the interwebs, my dance card is getting full! I've got lots of little projects in the works, and am happy to be working with some terrific sponsors. One of them, as you may know, is Karina Dresses.

As mentioned last week, I'm thrilled to be offering my readers a fabulous Karina Dresses dress in a giveaway. I'll be announcing the winner on Thursday. Meanwhile, be sure to enter by clicking on the Rafflecopter widget over at my SHOP THE CITIZEN blog. (I'm talking to YOU, Terri and Reva!) The entries must be entered in the Rafflecopter widget- it's the big square thingy that says what you've got to do to enter- so be sure you enter that way, not just in the comments- I wish you all the best of luck- and may the luckiest reader win!

Another sponsor that is near and dear to me, is the wonderful Sacramento boutique, FRINGE. I've got a wonderful summer vintage collection in the store there now. Tracy Mitchell, fashion stylist and blogger of Good Day Howard, coordinated a fantastic photo shoot using some of her favorite items of my collection. Street Style SACRAMENTO style hunter Morgan Hollis took the photos and I am so pleased with the results! You can get a peek of the California Summer inspired shoot HERE. And you can see the whole collection for yourself at the FRINGE boutique in Sacramento, California. 
From now until May 30th, take a 20% discount off all Citizen Rosebud vintage when you mention coupon code: Rosebud20 at checkout.

And...some random bloggy notes:

  • My blogger pal, Stacy, aka Miss Peregrin just started a brand new blog and it looks like a hoot! Her new blog is called Owl Obsessed Oddity. Do stop by and say hi- she's a lovely sort!
  • Not new one bit, but my bloggy crush show no sign of abating, is the muy caliente UK blogger, La Dama who has Vintage Passions Just Like Mine. If you haven't yet had the pleasure to make your acquaintance with her, I insist you do so NOW!

There is always, always time for thrifting. I'm glad you're not allowing the craziness of your busy life to intrude on that! You always find the greatest things - can't wait to see what you scored!

Love that flower arrangement. It says in flowers how I feel about you? Corny? Maybe. True? Absolutely.

Loving this hair color on you. The whole look is great.
