Canvas Factory GIVEAWAY.

[i was provided with one canvas print for review purposes; excitement and opinions are 100% mine.]

nowadays, we capture so many great memories with our phones and digital cameras, and yet those photos end up sitting in our phones or on our computers. Canvas Factory allows you to transform those photos into beautiful pieces of artwork. they can print on stretched canvas, aluminum, acrylic glass. they can print collages, full wall displays, or even split canvases. best of all, their website lets you easily upload photos from your computer or even directly from facebook, instagram, or flicker. the hardest part was choosing a photo!

this photo was of a sunset from paradise cove luau on the west side of oahu. i chose a 16" x 20" canvas print in landscape. i uploaded the file from my computer, positioned it on the canvas, and that was it. my print arrived in the mail shortly after that.

the canvas prints are lightweight making it easy
to hang on any wall.

wrapped canvas.

here it is behind my desk...the first of many that will go up on this freshly painted photo wall.

hello longer legs.

ok, we're all guilty of this...right?
tiptoeing to lengthen our legs? or tiptoeing just to look taller than our friends in that reunion picture? i mean, let's be real. i love wearing heels, but sometimes i have to give my legs a break. but when i do [wear flats], i can't help but feel short and stocky...so i tiptoe. a few guilty photos below.

check out this product i recently discovered. it's called invisible heels. just pop these inserts into your shoes, and you've instantly lengthened your body, lifted your butt, and slimmed your figure. no need to tiptoe.

are you guilty of tiptoeing?
have you tried shoe inserts before?

tiptoeing...guilty as charged.

three heights are available: 3/4", 1.5", 2"

oops, i did it again!
made of memory foam cushioning that's lightweight,
comfortable, and sturdy.

what? not again!

the perfect white shorts.

wow...it's been a while!
last we spoke, our office [of 15 years] was transitioning to a new location. it was a long process, but we are finally moved in and slowly getting settled. unfortunately, i spent most of my time in jeans + tees while packing and cleaning...nothing quite blog-worthy. now that there is some kind of normalcy, it feels great to get dressed again...although we are in a much different environment. while the old office was close to the beach, the new office is literally on the beach warranting much more casual attire.

i love the crispness of white. these shorts from express were the right length and fit that i wanted...paired with my favorite button-down + summer slippers = my perfect summer look.

what's your summer look?
