Atlanta-based Chikadeez Photography and Make Room for Style are partnering up for a contest in honor of Valentine's Day. What's at stake? A free 2-hour on-location photo session with Laura at Chikadeez Photography (a $150 value)...

So this 2-hour photo session is all about you and what you want to make of it! You'll have unlimited outfit changes within that time period. And mommas, please note this session is for the metro-Atlanta area only. Anyone is welcome to enter, but you'll need to make your way to Atlanta to claim your prize. So how do you enter?

A New Year...

Mommas, I hope your new year has gotten off to a great start! Here's to a fabulous and fashionable 2010 for all! As with every new year, this one brings new changes and challenges, new goals, new aspirations... what are some of yours?

Well, one big change happening here... you may've noticed most of my Javis Davis ads and pics have been removed. The gals there have decided to discontinue the design partner program, so I'll no longer be selling their products. They're still very much in business and are mostly web-based, so you'll still find me gabbing about them from time to time. I have been and will always be a huge fan of theirs, and you can bet your britches that my future nusery will be outfitted head-to-toe in Javis Davis.

I'm still here though, mommas. So don't go anywhere! You'll probably find my content moving more and more toward maternity style and fashion, but you can look for odds and ends on hot items for baby, kid, and the nursery as well. Stay warm out there, and stay tuned!
