Let’s share our Modcloth obsession!

Apparently I am the LAST person in the universe to discover how awesome Modcloth is. Well, I’ve been spending waaaay too much time in the past week looking over their extremely cute dresses as I have SoFabCon ’14 coming up next month, and it includes not one, but TWO cocktail events. And I have lost 50 pounds since the last time I went to SoFabCon and I’m ready to show off my new bod!

Now, the new trend on Modcloth is their  shirtdresses. Here are some very cute ones, they’re all under $100, and they’re available in all sizes – even plus!

LOVE the canary one! But I am moreso looking at the mid-length, strapless, low-neck dresses. I will show you an example of one that I will not purchase so that we don’t end up wearing the same dress to the ball.

The Neyla Dress in Rouge from ModCloth – $189.99

Named for Neyla of the fabulous folk-rock group, The Lumineers, this notable red dress comes to you byStop Staring! A brand that embodies the fusion of fashion …

I mean, Oh. Mah. GAH. Such a lovely frock. And it’s available in my size! Do you have any clue how many caftans I have to go through on that certain large online retailer named after what Wonder Woman is to find anything remotely decent? And NOTHING like this. No way.

ModCloth has announced its “Best of the Fest” capsule collection, which features styles handpicked by their own ModStylists. The collection features pieces that cleverly reference a some of the bands & songs you might hear at an upcoming festival, like the Strum Strum Girls Dress, The Head and the Art Sunglasses, and the Because I’m Strappy Bootie. The collection also includes an exclusive Lauren Moffatt dress that is available in plus for the very first time. Shop the collection and be sure to check more festival looks here!

Okay, I’ve been up all night checking out Modcloth, and I think it’s time I go to sleep and let you guys take over.

Free mp3 song downloads from Amazon – more tracks for eclectic collection

Downloading free mp3 songs from Amazon is always kind of hit and miss for me. Most of these tracks are from artists I have never heard of or tracks I have never heard. Be that as it may, from time to time I do find something worth keeping in my eclectic music collection. Here is a list of some free songs compiled by The Freebie Hoarder ~ http://freebiehoarder.com/free-mp3-songs-319/. It also includes one paid track worth checking out.

Today I checked out the track Call Me by St. Paul & The Broken Bones. It was a really good old school R&B track. My type of music so it will make it somewhere into my playlist.

It is always good when I find something good that I have never heard of to put into my background music while I work, and this track happened to be one of those.

10 free andriod game apps available from Amazon – Subway Surfers app review.

Here is a list of 10 free popular android game apps available from Amazon along with a review of Subway Surfers app. They are free in the sense that they are in one of three demo modes, free to play with in game micro transactions enabled, with in game ads, or with nag screen to upgrade to premium. None of these bother me in return for quality diversion type entertainment. Anyways gonna try one of them out. This list was compiled courtesy of The Freebie Hoarder – http://freebiehoarder.com/free-android-apps-317/ There is also a paid app listed that is worth checking out.
The one I tried out was Subway Surfers (Kindle Tablet Edition).

Avoid trains and police officers while spamming your Facebook friends

Avoid trains and police officers while spamming your Facebook friends

The game involved the adventures of a graffiti spraying kid trying to escape the clutches of a police officer while avoiding oncoming trains and other obstacles. It also gives you ample opportunity to boast of your adventures or invite additional friends to play for increased power ups via Facebook. Something to turn off altho I might have to find a way to keep on for those who keep sending me all the Candy Crush invites.

Graphics and performance were quite nice and responsive on this 3-D action game, although a bit tedious for me younger kids would probably like it as it has a lot of action.
Subway Surfers app
All in a fun game, worked good, but used up a quite a bit of battery power. Good for a quick diversion but not something I would play with again.

Northwest Arkansas Fashion Week! Catwalkin’ for some great causes. #NWAFW #shop

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.

The first full week in March was stylin’ in Bentonville, Arkansas! The third-annual NWA Fashion Week showcased many of northwest Arkansas’ top designers, boutiques and some amazing and much-needed nonprofits. I went to #NWAFW as a representative of #CollectiveBias at one of my old stomping grounds, the Benton County Daily Record. I cannot tell you how different the building looks from when it was a newspaper office just five years ago! But somehow, they managed to transfer that building into a fabulous runway.

I went to the Boutique Runway on March 7, where boutiques like She Said Yes Bridal, By Request, Chic, Blue Moon Market, Maven, Ropa, Klothe, Reflection of Beauty + Fauxever Yours, SOHO, Skye on the Town and Coed Co-Op were featured.

But the main stars of this entire event were the charities for which it was held. One particular charity close to my heart is Ozark Guidance. I have been a patient at Ozark Guidance since 2006, when troubles with panic, depression and anxiety left me helpless and in need of affordable behavioral health care.

The treatment I’ve received at Ozark Guidance has helped me get through many traumatic issues, perhaps most significantly the post-traumatic stress disorder I was diagnosed with following a sexual assault in 2008. Since being a patient at Ozark Guidance, I have pleaded with my representatives in Congress to begin a dialogue in Washington to focus on affordable access to behavioral health care for low-income individuals. Ozark Guidance’s philosophy is that no one in northwest Arkansas should be without access to behavioral health care. I truly believe Ozark Guidance has saved me in many, many ways. But I also know that Ozark Guidance struggles with having the resources to care for every person who needs it, so this event was a great help for them.

Often, organizations such as Ozark Guidance would go without recognition were it not for large galas like NWA Fashion Week. These events raise awareness among those who may not need services from these organizations – and manage to combine lots of glam and entertainment with some great causes.

It’s not often that I get to doll up for a night on the town, but I was so proud to be part of such a wonderful event. I am very proud of the fashion community in northwest Arkansas for putting on such an amazing show.

Here’s a list of 10 free mp3 and 1 paid for song downloads from Amazon. This list was provided by The Freebie Hoarder – http://freebiehoarder.com/free-mp3-songs-314/

For this post I downloaded one of the free mp3′s in the list. • Metal & Dust by London Grammar
Being that it was an ambient dance track it wasn’t really my cup of tea but the quality overall was good and would probably make a good track in an eclectic play list. Definitely not bad for a free Amazon track. I suspect the others are also worth checking out as well.
