Gift list 7: Hip Home Decor From The Rustic Orange 111

Holiday Cheer

So I love promoting everything, especially Etsy sellers. With Small Business Saturday right around the corner, I am going hard for my fellow Etsians! (I hope that’s a word) I want to introduce a new shop to you guys, The Rustic Orange 111!

Ran by the lovely Annette, this shop specializes “furniture revivals” and many other hip home decor designs! Not only are the pieces really unique but 10% of the proceeds go towards a non profit organization that aids sex trafficked victims in getting out of the human trafficking ring. The program,
4the1.org is held at a safe house in Nepal.
I want to show you guys some of my favorite items that the shop has in store!

New Segment Ideas! I Want to Hear From You Guys

LuLuNews, parent family fashion

Hey Guys. How is everyone today? How did you guys take that upset that Tennesee put on Carolina today?  I’m no  football  fan because I don’t know whats going on at all. I glance at a game every now and then  while making my papa explain to me what’s going on.

Anyways, I want to get suggestions from you guys on blog post! I have an idea of where I want to go with LuLuChris58 from this month forward but I still would love to hear more ideas!  Heres a quick run down on some of the topic I want to persue.

1.) Pay it Forward

Not a new post but I still want to shout out other bloggers, sellers, YouTubers, etc.  I want to have subtopics for this category such as Beat Face Boos, YouTubers You Should Know and Small Business owner of the week!

2.) Mommy’s Corner

This segment has been a hit on my other blog. It’s a release for me and something that a lot of women over 25 can relate to. There will be four subcategories

-Relationships
The ex files and Love in general

-Life

-Male Eye Candy Over 25

-Motherhood

3.) Broke Girl Diaries

This is a new segment that I started. Each week I will be tackling a beauty or fashion task for less. I will write about each experience no matter the outcome! I would also love if you guys wrote me and let me know which task you would like for me to try

4.) OOTD or OOTW

This segment I will need to work out the kinks of it but I want to start showing you guys my style and I would love to see yours!

5.) Monthly Favorites

This is self explanitory. I may start attaching a video to this segment. I’m not sure just yet.

6.) DIY

You guys know I love DIY’s but I never can seem to write a good tutorial post! Well I’m no quitter! I am going to try my hand at this again!

7.) Kid’s Items/ Kid’s Corner

We know that this is where the blog got it’s start. I don’t want to stray away from my blog’s orgin but I also want to branch out. I hope that makes sense. Anyways, I will be doing all things for the kids under this topic.  I still will try to keep fly circle and the closet as topics too.

8.) Challenge

I want to start up my challenges again. This month’s challenge is 31 Letters to my future husband! This should be interesting.

9.) Reviews

I want to start reviewing things and giving my opinion on products! I use to wear weave a lot and shop with a lot of small business owners so I would love to share my experience with you guys. I will be posting my first review on a Tee I recieved from a fellow Etsy seller, ClothingHub as a Thank You gift.   I may start reviewing television shows as well. I’m not sure.

So guys please feel free to let me know what you would love to see from LuLuChris58 moving forward!  Do you guys feel I need to change anything? I love hearing from you all and I can’t wait to hear sugguestions.

Good News: So you guys know that I have the biggest celeb crush on Tyler Lepley! I just think that he’s an awesome guy with some great biceps! ( If you have not read up on him please do so. He is a very inspiring and humble guy! He retweets almost all of my craziness that I tweet at him)
Well I am happy to say that if you google Ty Lepley Stats, my blog is the first thing that pops up.  I am just estatic to be one of the many bloggers who has the pleasure of bringing information on this rising star to you guys. I have to say thank God  that I started to watch the Tyler Perry hit show “The Haves and Have Nots.”

Good Night Post! Show and Tell, BET Awards, Randomness

diy, parent family fashion, random

Hey Guys! How is everyone tonight? I hope that you guys are tired out from the BET Awards! Who watched? I was actually impressed. This is the first awards that I wasn’t counting down until the end. I actually didn’t want it to end. The Charlie Wilson Tribute was amazing!! My Fro and I really enjoyed this!

I have a quick show and tell for you all. I couldn’t stay away from the DIY scene at all. I was in love with Rhianna’s fringe shorts seen here👇👇👇👇👇

20130701-001412.jpg

I usually have the picture in front of me when I do my DIY but today I was texting and emailing all day so it was my memory and I! Here’s what my “photographic memory” got me:👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇👇

I decided to cut the back and do something different to the pocket. Brelin and my little cousin helped me to design the back pocket, lolx. I love the shorts. Here’s what I started with:👇👇👇👇👇👇👇

20130701-001917.jpg

They looked good then but I wanted to give them more life!

I will list them on Etsy as a custom item! I will not be selling them at 25.00. These will be 55.00 shipped. The reason why, you may ask. Well it took me 6 hours minus dry time to make these shorts. It will be a 3 week wait on these unless stated other wise.

So how do you guys feel about these? Feel Free to leave comments below! Til next post ✌duces and 🙏truces.
