Sponsor Intro : Gina of Hiyaluv

Hi y'all! I have a new sponsor to introduce you to this month. I was supposed to feature her last month, but I think by now, you all know how June went for me... ;) Thankfully, Gina is super sweet and forgiving and didn't even say a bad thing to me about not featuring her on my blog like I was supposed to. How's that for kindness!?! (And couldn't we all use more people like that in the world... but that's a totally different rant that I shouldn't get into right now...)

Anyway, Gina and I met via blogging and twitter, I believe via Ashley. (Is that right Gina?) We were both on a quest to lose weight, had joined Weight Watchers and were always supporting and encouraging each other as well as offering tips, recipes, and just all around weight loss advice. If you're looking for a weight loss online support buddy, Gina is as great as they come! But that's not the only thing she has to contribute. Keep reading!

I've invited Gina to share a bit about herself, so keep reading and then go follow her around the webs and I'm sure you won't regret it!

Gina, give us just a quick blurb about you: 

I live on the east coast and just got married in March. My husband and I have a puppy named Polo. Yes, he is named after Polo Ralph Lauren! :) I work at the University of Delaware and blog in my free time. I used to have an Etsy shop and I still kind of do but I have not listed anything in a long time. I may get back into selling eventually but right now I love concentrating on blogging and reading other's blogs. I enjoy blogging about style, beauty products, crafting, weight loss, and anything that strikes my fancy. I would say that I write a creative lifestyle blog and the blog evolves and changes as I do. :) 


I enjoy being creative, sewing, reading, shopping, and spending time with my husband. I love to travel and try to do so as often as my wallet allows. :) 

You're given the opportunity to live in a new place for one year, all expenses paid. Where would you live and who would you take with you?

This question is rather challenging to answer because there are so many great places in the world. I was born and raised in Ohio and moved to Southern California for three years after graduate school. I then moved to Delaware in 2008. Part of me would want to move back to Southern California if all expenses were paid because it is so expensive to live there. Other parts of me would like to try living in Arizona. Regardless, I would want to move west and have beautiful sunny weather all year round. I would still work even if all expenses were paid because I enjoy my job so much. I would blog more and of course shop more. I would take my husband and our pup wherever I moved to. Wherever they are is my home. :) 

Awww... too sweet! 

A lovely bathroom makeover she shared!

From a makeup post, and I think we all know how much I love talking about makeup. 

Thanks for participating Gina!
