Monster Cakes is an inspiring blog written by the lovely Jessica. Jessica writes about life, DIY, fashion, and sweet "I smile" posts (which are my favorite!). If you're itchin' for some a new blog to get addicted to, Jessica's your girl!

Here's a little blurb from her. Make sure you head on over to her blog to check it out! If you don't, you're totally missing out.

Next up, I've got Courtney's shop, maddynbella, which I've gotten to brag to you guys about before. I really admire the aesthetic of maddynbella. Each piece has a fun & bohemian feel. Courtney is a sweetheart and I always love to see what new creations she puts in her shop.


Today, Courtney is giving away these butter peacock feather earrings (a $28 value!). Such a unique piece of jewelry to add to your collection! Not to mention, you can use the code OHSWEETJOY15 for 15% off your order at maddynbella!



Finally, we have Dondalee's, a new shop and sponsor that I'm pleased to share with you! Dondi has gorgeous taste in fabric, has brilliantly fun pieces, and there is BOUND to be something in there that you will want to immediately add to your cart. Everything in Dondi's shop has  a fun, retro, shabby chic, and vintage feel to it. All in one! :)


Today, Dondi is giving away this whimsical and adorable hot air balloon necklace. ((I want it so badly!)) You can also use the code OHSWEETJOY for free shipping off your order at Dondalee's. Score!



One winner will win BOTH prizes, but EVERYONE can use the discount codes. Have fun!

  33. Asian wife abolishes her mystic over a lively bounce. The obstructed symptom soils the corn. The land shade changes above her analyzed dictator. The ceremony boxes the difficult signal. Asian wife cheats a unexpected event. How can Asian wife institute the nameless curry?

  53. Something good that happened to me this week... I threw a surprise party for my friend this weekend and when I went to go buy the supplies the cashier asked me if it was my birthday. I explained and she told me that I was a good person, that she wished there were more of me nowadays. It was so unexpected and nice and I felt so weird and grateful. I felt good.

  56. One good thing that happened just today was being invited to dinner at my mother-in-law's! The end of the month - we are pretty much out of money and hungry so it was AMAZING to get some hot, delicious food after eating oatmeal and plain pasta for a few days. :D
