Rose & Co Blog: ABSOLUTELY ARKANSAS TURNS ONE! and a very girly giveaway!

ABSOLUTELY ARKANSAS TURNS ONE! and a very girly giveaway!

HAPPY MONDAY READERS!

 For once, i'm not being sarcastic. Today is a really exciting day for me. My sweet corner of the internet turned one yesterday, and I feel a little like a mama bear except i'm not sure it would be smart to smush cake on my Macbook. Okay, technically, Absolutely Arkansas was started in May of 2012, however it took an 8 month hiatus. And August 24th, 2013 I put some blood sweat and tears into her look, and we relaunched. This is my happy place of love, inspiration, goofiness, and life, and i'm so happy we made it through a year together.

To celebrate i'm giving some of my favorite goodies away. Absolutely Arkansas started as a place to just share our life after moving from home, and it evolved into a place I like to share beauty tips, or ways to DIY your home, and so I thought when giving some goodies away, i'd incorporate a little bit of everything! We've got "Something for your Home, something for your Hair, something for your Face, and something to Wear! All of the things that bring this hodge podge of words and pictures to life.

1) a super cute floral makeup bag to keep your pretties together
2) the worlds cutest travel makeup brush set

4) adorable gold and pink hair bows
5) Bath and Body Works "Pink Lemonade Pound Cake" mason jar candle (my favorite scent ever!)
6) Essie nailpolish in "bikini so teeny"
7) pretty pearl + crystal stud earrings (so cute, I have a matching pair!)
8) floral wide tooth comb
9) floral purse mirror
10) pink and gold notebook
11) some surprise goodies i've picked up since taking this picture!

  2. I'm not a blogger myself. & typically I don't read blogs very often. But I have read your blog every week for the past 8 months or so! I'm a wedding freak -- my mom was a wedding planner growing up. & I absolutely loved all your DIY you did for yours. Your DIY around the house has inspired me to try some of my own. None worth posting yet ;) but thank you for your cute blog that I love to read! Happy birthday AA!

  9. Congrats on Absolutely Arkansas's 1-year anniversary. As a fellow blogger, I totally understand how much wok, time, patience, tears (No? I hope that's not just me.) goes in to a blog. It's a big accomplishment so I'm giving you a virtual pat on the back. :)
