It's been a while since I shared some link love. So, it's time.
First, I'd like to do a quick Music Monday post. Yes, I know it's not Monday, but dammit, every Monday I forget to do one, so I'm doing one now. Mmmkay?
I've shared with you folks about one of my very favorite bands before... and I'm gonna do it again. That's right, I'm talking about Mestizo. If you like Jack Johnson, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, or any kind of acoustic pop rock with a bit of folk thrown in... you'll love these guys. They're in rotation on my iPod almost more than Dave Matthews, so that should tell ya something.
Go ahead and preview any of their songs right here. My favorites on this album are Fade, Playin, and Hope. Also, they do a gorgeous cover of Hallelujah. :)
I have their brand new album ready to give away to one lucky reader. So, all you need to do to win is leave me a comment telling me who your favorite band is, and your favorite song by said band. That's it! I'll be taking entries only through Friday, so you'd better hurry on up and enter!
Okay. Now. I need to share a few things with you.
If you have been living under a rock for the last two months... you need to get your ass over to Julia Goulia's blog, NOW. The woman is not only a kick-ass person, but she's kicking ass at her weight loss, too. She's lost 30 pounds in six weeks!!!
It shouldn't need repeating, but the ever constant MizFit is still doing badass giveaways and also giving away her depths of knowledge on fitness, eating right and oodles of tips on your healthy lifestyle.
Our favorite Fat Bridesmaid has laid out her plan for Lent. If you're Catholic, or if you're not Catholic, check her blog out for a buddy in the self control/deprivation/test of will category. She won't let you down.
Sue over at Did I Just Eat That Outloud is still sexy, rockin' the support, and sharing her thoughts on life. SO worth the read, people. Plus, if you're a tweetaholic, this woman will be your new BFF.
Esther, our Faintstarlite, is a Weight Watcher and a Mom. She posts vids on her travels, weight loss, and bonding with the baby. She just recently got down to BELOW her pre-pregnancy weight. Any new moms struggling with post-baby-weight... this woman can hook you up with tips. Plus, her kid is fracking adorable, and his name is Jude. Don't think you could ask for anything more than that!
My friend Wes over at Swish Embassy has started a new project in lines with total and utter self love. Morning Mugshots. If you want to show your self love to the world, you can start with a photo of yourself first thing in the morning. That's right. Pre-makeup, pre-shower, just rolled out of bed-head, you. You can do it. I did.
And speaking of self love, I couldn't stop without mentioning the lovely Eating Journey. She's focusing on Self Love for the entire month of February. Fuck Valentines, people. Love yourself instead!
And, last but not least, I'd like to introduce you all to my favorite new blog: http://www.speakingfromthecrib.com/. She's got a great sense of humor, and I LOVE her style. If you like the writing stylings of Julia Goulia or Sue... you need to pay this woman a visit and follow her. Now. :)
