October Connections

This month I am honored to be sponsoring FIVE fabulous blogs! Look for the DA ad in the sidebars of these wonderful sites, and watch for their sponsor-themed giveaways/coupon codes to snag some DA swag.

After Nine to Five
Ashley from After Nine to Five is the queen of self-employment, better blogging tips, fun guest posts, awesome giveaways, and yummy things. She also offers e-books and e-courses, and has a shop full of accessories and prints. Plus she’s just a cool, friendly chica. 🙂 Go check out her site, you won’t regret it. You can also find her on Twitter: @afterninetofive

My Girl Thursday
Thursday over at My Girl Thursday is a quirky, stylish and open-hearted lady who blogs about motherhood, fashion and thrifting fun, DIY crafts, and more. She has a knack for finding neat craft or vintage items and sharing with her readers. I’m waiting for her shop to come back (*hint hint, Thursday*), but in the meantime check out her blog and follow her on Twitter: @mygirlthursday

Shannon of the aptly-named shannon*bear is a spunky photographer with a strong love of life and pretty things, which she kindly shares with the world via her lighthearted blog. She runs a photography business (Fox and Owl Studio) with her husband – how awesome is that? She also has a shop full of handmade, up-cycled little critters. Check our her site. You can also find her on Twitter: @loveshannonbear

Little Luck Tree
Shannon over at Little Luck tree runs a very positive blog sharing all things creatively inspiring (crafts, fashion, DIY projects, life thoughts, etc.). She’s got distinct style, fabulous hair that I’m jealous of, and a very upbeat outlook. Go look! You can also find her on Twitter: @luck_tree

Miss Cindy Lou of eLousions is a feisty Puerto Rican chica blogging her way through thrifting, vintage fashion, photography, DIT projects and more. She also has a shop where she sells her vintage finds (though it’s currently undergoing construction). Check out her site, and go see her on Twitter: @elousions
