I Pledge To Rate If you are my partner and have not received a swap from me, kindly message me. I always send a week early with a tracking number. Just to be on the safe side. I work extremely hard and go above and beyond on every swap I sign up for. That being said, the minute I receive your package. I will connect on to the Bot and rate you fairly!
I am super OCD responsible enough to send out all my swaps on time. I never over extend myself and only sign up for what I can commit to and always follow through no matter what. A couple of years ago when my mom died in a tragic and unexpected accident and even going through Hurricane Irma, I sent out on time and kept my swap partners informed.
Harry Winston Watch Out, I Dream in Diamonds My name is Lauren and I live in the sunny state of Florida by way of Hollywood, California. SAHW & married the man of my dreams in 2010. Became a mommy on Valentine's Day 2013 & D-Day 2015. What can I say, I liked going into labor on holidays. My little man and princess have perfect timing is all I can say. I am still adjusting to this title called MOMMY & balancing my ever demanding career of costume making. Its a little nuts around here with cute little mini me's and a whole lot of crystals and feathers. LOL (SELFIE QUEEN)
I am a designer of all things Swarovski: Crystallized Bikinis, Extravagant Costume/Theme Wear, Vintage Luggage & Shoes. I love the creation process. A truly calming experience for me and I feel doing it right the first time (in biz and in life) is the reason why I have customers return time and time again. Theme wear & shoes are my favorite things to make.
My home away from home, it is where I am the happiest. I am so obsessed. On my 40th Birthday, I would like to renew my vows at DisneyWorld. We even named our Black & White Persian Cat Disney! Disney means more to me than life itself.
I love homes that have true character, that hold a little mystery. I could definitely do some decorating damage to this house. Love this French Chateau Style Manor, definitely would love to own a vintage manor one day. Hey never stop dreaming! Two of my favorite websites for homes are: Circa Old Houses - www.circaoldhouses.com Chateau Gudanes - www.chateaugudanes.com
Painted Ladies, don't even get me started. It would be like living in an actual doll house. I totally could live in one of them. Gorgeous stained glass, turrets, pocket doors, cellars and attics for plenty of storage and areas you can turn into work and craft rooms. Would die to own one of them! Not sure I could convince my honey bunny, plus he is way too tall to fit through the door ways.
I am so addicted to the past times and iconic treasures of the bygone era. There is something truly magical about a carousel and it is one of my favorite rides at Disneyland & World. The horses are complete works of art with such detail carved into each one. My friend Amy and I dream of organizing a circus themed shoot with a carousel included. I would also love to own one of my very own carousel horses so I could completely cover her in Swarovski Crystals. Dreams are wonderful aren't they? I have actually rode the carousel below three times when I was in Paris. once in the hot air balloon in the rain, 2nd time in the Venetian Canopy Seat and the third time on a gorgeous horse with flowers all over the mane and tail. I will never forget it and hope to take my kids one day.
My obsession with the Edwardian Period, Gilded Age and all the way to the 1950's started when I felI in love with reading. This time period holds so much magic and mystery. I love how everything connects once you start to your research. I do believe in my former life I was an American Heiress. Lover of all things sparkly and diamonds are definitely my best friend. I believe in style, decorum and the family legacy goes along way. My dream would be to live in a grand estate with a full staff, but for now I will be grateful with living on the 11th hole of the golf course. Meeting up with friends for lunch, letter boxing, chasing my kids around, finding time to sit down & breathe are the activities that consume my current days.
Being an Heiress Is Not Easy: So finding things to entertain and inspire me can prove to be difficult at times. Here is a list of things that either entertain or inspire me in no particular order:
OMG seriously obsessed with this little kitty made by Lefton (Little Miss Priss). I love her so much that every time I see her at vintage/antique shops, I buy her right away. I look at her and I get that warm and fuzzy feeling like she is smiling right at me. They are hard to find and when you do they are quite a bit of money. I did happened to snag the cookie jar for $15 and have seen it on eBay selling at almost $400. Crazy I know. So when I am out and about or see a good deal I grab her.
I am not sure what to say except Certifiably Insane when it comes to Fenton. I love so many pieces in the Fenton Family that I cannot just choose one. I collect Ruby and Mulberry Overlay. And all the colored crests Cake Stands. I also love Silver Turquoise & Silver Rose.
I am definitely a collector of many things. I am obsessed with all things kitschy decor. I love 1940's Chalkware wall pockets of Mermaids, Sea Horses and Fish. I am currently redo-ing my pool house bathroom with an Enchantment Under the Sea Theme. It's so cute and my kids just love it.
So my New Year's resolution was to stop watching reality TV shows. So if it's not an amazing series with a great story or how to show then I am just not interested anymore. If I happen to be watching I am definitely only tuned into:
Pose (Very Interesting, Love The Fashion)
Big Little Lies (Read the book, but I love the show)
Dancing with the Stars (I love the costumes)
Football (S, M, & Th above everything)
Curb Your Enthusiasm (OMG I Die)
Real Time with Bill Maher
Queen Sugar (Oprah, leaves me hanging after. every episode)
I love watching old black and white 50's game shows like What's My Line, Password, and Beat the Clock and Same Name. They just remind me of some very glamorous time.
I love Sinatra and Big Band 40's era music, especially while I work. I also like late 90's hip/hop. And I am fan of Classic Rock and Roll and Alternative while singing at the top of my lungs in the car. And House Music (Swedish House Mafia is my favorite & Calvin Harris), when I really want to let loose!
So, I have been in love with Disney practically my whole life, but after my mom passed away I damn near became obsessed with the subject and all things Ears related. She used to work for Disney when she was younger, And was even a model for all the Disney Training Videos. She really enjoyed her time at Disney and I believe this is where she learned all about being a kind but fair business woman. She always talked highly of the behind the scenes magic and how she could always incorporate her training from Disney in everyday situations She was amazing and I loved hearing about her Disney stories.
My favorite Character of all time is Minnie Mouse. I believe my husband is my Mickey and I am his Minnie. When we move I want and all white kitchen so I can turn it into an entire Disney themed kitchen. I read anything and everything about Disney. I am now more interested in the building of the park, the imagineers, how the rides and movies were made.
I am also obsessed with Pin Trading, so if. you pin trade....Let's Trade. Some of the themes I collect:
Birds from the Tiki Room
Haunted Mansion ((Anything))
Alice in Wonderland
Club 33 & Blue Bayou
And, I can't forget Jiminy Cricket, the littlest character with the biggest heart. I live my life through his kind words "Always let your conscience be your guide" you will never be lost if you always do the right thing.
I am finally forced to put this up because I have been flaked on 4 times, twice for receiving nothing and twice for not be rated. =( Most of my swaps are journal swaps which take about two months and a lot of creative thinking, so it really sucks not to get anything in return and even worse not being rated for the hard work you've done.
