The Fabulous Friday 5

In my eyes, getting ready for Spring and Summer weather is always a ton of fun! I get to choose some new toys  for my little guy to play with. I get to bring out the water toys. He gets to ride on his kid size 4-wheeler and his tricycle. My son loves to be outdoors during the warm months and having stuff out there to keep him entertained is key. Unfortunately some of the bigger things {play houses, play sets, 4-wheelers, etc} are kind of expensive and not always in everyones budget. Including my own. It's always fun to win a giveaway...and it's even more fun {and budget~friendly} to win a big~ticket item that will provide your child(ren) with hours of endless fun and excitement. 

Luckily for me {and you!}I found some great giveaways today that are geared for the warm months. Summer would so much fun with some of these awesome products. I hope to win something fun for my little guy...and I want you to enter too...your child will thank me {and you of course!} if you win!

I am really interested in getting into photography a bit more...other than my point and shoot digital camera. I would love to have a stunning DSLR...Nikon or Canon...I am not picky at this point.  But for now, a few fun older 35 mm would be great to have.

I really like these ones at Urban Outfitters:

Holga 35mm Camera  Lomography Diana+ Aviator Camera 

Holga 35mm Camera: $48 


Lomography Diana+ Aviator Camera: $65

 Lego Camera  Instax Mini 7S Instant Camera

Lego Camera: $68

I seriously heart these. Someone needs to buy them for me. 


Disclosure: Not a paid post. I just really like these cameras...and Urban Outfitters. :)

I Heart These Sandals

I love sandals. I crave them during summer time. I miss them during the winter.

These are simple. They remind me of something a grandma would wear...but they are still so appealing. 
You can buy them here. $148.
