This year is flying by and before you know it, it'll be time for Christmas music!! (I'm a little excited, can you tell?) Anyway, it is time for the June edition of In and Out and I'm happy to be linking up today with one of my sidebar sponsors, Ashley from Keeping Up with Ashley and Cody. She wanted to do an In and Out post for this month and I thought it would be fun to give everyone even more products to try and and ones to stay away from. Also, I decided to be brave and make a vlog talking about the items on my In and Out list! It's . . .
The 4th of July is my second favorite holiday (Christmas being number one, of course) and I look forward to it every year. There is just something so spectacular about waking up the morning of the 4th and knowing that everyone is on the same page that day; celebrating our country and our freedom. I love everything that comes along with the 4th: BBQ's, parades, fairs, fireworks, carnivals and, of course, dressing up in my red, white and blues. Over the last few years and participating in various types of celebrations in Idaho, Utah, New Hampshire, and Boston, I have realized that there are three types of people who dress up for the 4th of July and then, of course, . . .
When I decided to start blogging seriously, I was looking for a creative outlet that helped me feel productive and challenged me in ways that I enjoyed. From photography to trying out new products and clothes and bringing reviews to the internet, I totally fell in love with how blogging pushed me outside my comfort zone, forced me to learn HTML coding and brought me into the most amazing community of bloggers. I didn't realize that there could be money made off of blogging until I started reading other blogs and seeing the FTC disclosure about different companies sponsoring posts or sending free product. I decided that I would only pursue making money off my blog as . . .
Thank you to eShakti for sponsoring today's post and for providing Life with Rosie readers with an awesome discount! A few months ago, I wrote about being proud of my scars and how I was learning to wear clothes that showed off my big 16 incher on my left leg. eShakti sent me a beautiful, custom-fit dress that made me feel confident and beautiful and I'm happy to report that, a few months later, I'm still totally in love with my dress. So much so, that I have been clicking through their website every few days and adding pieces from their new collections into my shopping cart and dreaming about the day I can push the "order" button. eShakti is well-known . . .

It must have been the fact that I hadn't had hair in almost a year and couldn't believe that I took it for granted. I started dying it like crazy. Every three-four weeks, I tried a different color or a different look. My first year of college I went from brown to dark brown to jet black, to jet black with pink streaks, to brown to blonde to orangey brown. Needless to say, my new hair didn't appreciate the onslaught of chemicals. And, during the summer, it seemed to get worse. . . .
