Mary’s Holiday Finds at Brea Mall PLUS $100 Gift Card Giveaway!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. This weekend I have a Holiday Party with some close family friends whom I’ve known for a very long time. I’m pretty lucky that my sisters and I have a lot in common, and we also have mutual friends. Some of them were in my wedding as bridesmaids and were later in my sister’s wedding.

Review and Giveaway: Hapari Swimwear | @Hapari

Summer is here and we’re all looking for the perfect swimwear. On our last holiday and camping trip, I was scrambling to find a swimwear that complimented my body shape, hide my flaws, and comfortable to wear all day around other families. I wish I had planned ahead, and as a working parent with no time to shop, it didn’t happen in time. I wore a cover up, and it was hot.
