MudLOVE Wolf Band Review

Hey girls!
It's time for a review!
I contacted MudLOVE and they were interested in me doing a review for them. First off, I would like to say, they have some awesome products there! And every product you purchase provides 1 week of clean water to someone in need, which is great! I decided to do a review for the Wolf Band.
I absolutely love it!! I am very satisfied with this company. I was very excited when I received my package in the mail because I was not expecting it so soon! They have very fast shipping, which I always love. The product is also of very good quality.

                                                                      Isn't it cute?!

And MudLOVE has even more products! They have the cutest mugs, and all sorts of bands!
I definitely want to purchase from them in the future. Another thing I would like to add is that I love how they don't have ridiculous prices. Now, they are still a bit pricey, but for a product like this it's a really awesome price. The wolf band is only $10!
Thank you all for stopping by, and thank you so much MudLOVE for letting me do a  review with you! I had so much fun, and I wear this band almost everyday!
Have a sparkly day, and definitely be sure to check out their website!

Guest Post: Christina

Hey girls! I know...it's been forever. I honestly just keep forgetting, but I'm going to do better. I have a review coming up soon, but first it's time for a guest post!
You should definitely check out her blog! :)
Hello, I’m Christina from Our Wood Home!  Before I launch into my guest post here at Sparkly Ambitions, allow me to tell you a bit about myself.  I’m married, work part time at a library, live in the country and love wearing skirts.  I love cooking, knitting, going for hikes and having short hair!  I believe that every day is an occasion to dress well, even if you are staying home.  Today I am sharing a really simple, casual outfit that is perfect for a variety of occasions, such as staying home, running errands, meeting with friends or even going to church (if the dress code is more casual). 

The weather here (in Canada) has been soooooo hot lately, so I wanted to dress in light clothes that would keep me cool but that also looked presentable.  As an avid skirt and dress wearer I’ve noticed that they keep me much cooler than pants and shorts ever did.  That’s because the fabric is looser which allows the breeze to really circulate and cool my skin. 

I love wearing skirts, not just for the cooling benefits, but because they make me feel so feminine!  Sometimes I feel like I have to overcompensate for my femininity since I have short hair, so skirts are the way to go!  Plus, they are so easy to wear if you follow a simple formula: your top should be coloured or patterned and the skirt should be solid (or vice versa!). Now, this isn’t set in stone or anything, and it’s not the only wear to wear skirts but it is helpful to remember if you are trying to put together an outfit in a hurry.

With an outfit like this I’d wear my Birkenstock sandals (I was wearing them earlier, but I bruised the top of my foot, thus making any shoe uncomfortable!) but this would also work with nice flats or a gladiator sandal.

Thanks, Katie, for letting me post on your blogJ  I invite everyone reading to take a peek at my blog (Our Wood Home) even if you are at a different stage of life than I am.  You will find lots of outfit posts, DIYs, gardening ideas and recipes!  Have a great day!
Thank you Christina! Great outfit, and great post!! ;) Check out her blog at ourwoodhome.com

Review: Starbucks Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino

Hey girls!
It's finally time for a review!
So I absolutely love Starbucks. I don't get it that often, but I'm still crazy for it.
This is a review for Starbucks' Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino. This is the second time I've gotten it, because I just love it so much!
The only thing I dislike about Starbucks is that it is very pricey. This drink was nearly $6 with tax.
So a Caramel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino is caramel syrup blended with coffee, milk, and ice, then topped with dark caramel sauce, whipped cream, caramel drizzle, and a crunchy caramel sugar topping.
As you can tell, it is incredibly sweet!! I love sugar though. ;)
This drink has a very strong caramel taste to it, with an added coffee taste. I love the taste of coffee and caramel together! I am giving this drink 5 stars. :) It's only for a limited time though, so if you want to get it, you'll want to act fast. I have no clue how long they are keeping it. :P

Thanks for stopping by!
If you do happen to try it, I'd love to know your thoughts!
Have a sparkly day!
P.S Thanks to everyone who has entered my giveaway! :)

Advice Column

Hey girls!
Thank you to all of you who took my survey! It has helped me a lot and I'm looking forward to using that information to make my blog better. :)
I have noticed that some of you ARE interested in me having an advice column. It sounds super fun for me to do! I know not everyone is interested in it, but feel free just to skip over those posts. ;)
So here's how it'll work. You can just email me at: earthykatie@gmail.com with a question (or few) about like life. Anything you're struggling with that you would like some advice for, anything. You can make up some cute anonymous name as well if you would like, or you can just be anonymous. ;)
I may be able to set a certain day of the week for advice posts, depending on how many questions I get. So we'll just see!
Thanks for stopping by!
I'm hoping to be writing some fun posts soon. ;)
