It’s GREEN Thursday sistahs… and you know what that means. It’s time to grab a hot beverage.. put on some music.. and sit down with your favorite pen and notebook and start writing your wish list down   .. it’s time to share this EPIC EVENT with ALL of YOUR FRIENDS and sistahs , that this weekend, starting at midnight tonight will be our last epic sale of the year  (today the word EPIC seems to be quite popular LOL). We really don’t have sales during the year.. well except our Crazy Tuesdays once a month 🙂.. but this sale will be STORE-WIDE and will be JOOCY. So.. having said that.. some quantities are limited.. so might I suggest when you have a moment to make yourselves a little list whilst waiting in line for the shop to open at midnight (said in a British accent).. and you don’t even have to put a bra on! (not so British)

MWAH to da sistahs who love the word EPIC and the word SALE and the word BRALESS  in the same sentence. LOL


having a little challenge on Facebook…

I thought we would have one here too for those of you NOT on facebook 🙂

As I hinted in the past, there are going to be lots of amazing changes here in Bellaland.. and the biggest change will allow me to spend MORE time with my sistahs!!!  This makes me happy.  Reminds me of the good ole’ days.   So as part of this celebration of having more time in my life  I thought we would have a “selfie” challenge.  Basically hold up your favorite stamp/stamps, take a picture of you and link it in the comments below… I love putting a face to a name .. and would love to get to know all of you bettah!

So here’s mine.. in my vacation place..wearing NO makeup LOL.. holding up FLOOR PLAN and FRAMED NUMBERS


So won’t ya post yours to the comments?  Contest will be open for 3 weeks and a $50 voucher will be given to a random poster.


so COME ON… Where are you already 🙂

Mwah to da sistahs who will be sick of da BELLA.


and the birFday sale continues! 25% off the whole online store: code: bellabirthday2013! and a little bit of DIS and a little bit of dat..

Hiya sistahs! Having a good week so far?  I am 🙂

So yesterday was DA big DAY.. my birfday and it was SO underwhelming LOL.. well the good thing is that I got  a lot of alone time.. kidlets and Ryan went to hockey and I was hibernating picking and packing orders :).  Sistahs, thank you so much for your orders.. I am OVERWHELMED!  I am trying my best to get through them but most won’t be until next week.. so if you are in a rush for your order please please email me and let me know!  I am trying to go in the order that they came in

Ok so a few shots from this week.  If you follow me on instagram, then you would have seen these.. if not, you will get a chuckle .. seriously you should follow me on instagram. I have fun posts if i do say so myself LOL.  I just love looking at other people’s goodies and photos.. Instagram and Candy Crush.. my two weaknesses.. and if I don’t pass 125 soon I am gonna pull my hair out!

Ok so look at the inside of my birthday card from Ryan… Jayden noticed something just wasn’t right here.. do you see it? LOL.  Think Ryan was in a rush when he bought it? LOLOL.  Well he got me back by saying I don’t read his cards because I didn’t even notice.  hmph.


and now for my roses I got (two toned.. gorgeous!).. and the carefully folded up wrapping paper they came in.. wasn’t sure if I loved the paper more for collage or the flowers LOL.. Im a paper addict what can I say LOL


Jayden and I had pedicures 🙂


and I have been doodling and fell IN LOVE with these little whistlers that fell out of my pen..


Ok just wanted to say hello and check in with my sistahs 🙂  hope it’s nice where you are.. I am melting where I am..LOL
