After Nine to Five Decor GIVEAWAY!

Hello, hello lovelies :) I am oh so excited about today's product!

Are you looking to spruce up the walls of your home?
Well, you've come to the right place.
Enter:


Ashley from After Nine to Five (who I absolutely adore) has just launched a new part of her shop that includes decor...all kinds of fun wall decals & awesome prints! 
Hint: If you are a Hunger Games fan get your cute self over to her shop and check out the 
"Featured Products" section - you won't be disappointed ;)

Here's a little blurb about the shop from Ashley herself:

"I'm Ashley from After Nine To Five - a lifestyle blog where I talk about my journey through life with self-employment, food, and photography. I also own a shop called After Nine To Five Decor where you can find tons of fun prints and wall decals to decorate your home with. In the future, we'll be expanding to greeting cards and other home decor such as pillows."
.
I know you're just dying to see what I have from her shop aren't you?! ;)
It was SO hard for me to choose between a decal & a print.
I ended up choosing a decal that I could write on with chalk, because I 
had the perfect idea for it.

Let me just say - I have always had a thing for speech bubbles.
I don't know why. I don't even use them how they're supposed to be used, I just love the way that they look on their own! So that's just what I chose:


A little speech bubble :)
How fun is that thing?! I've been wanting to have a graduation countdown 
hanging somewhere in my apartment for motivation (Lord knows I need it!) 
and when I saw this decal I knew I had to have it!

The decal came with complete instructions on how to properly apply it to the wall.
Confession: I didn't follow the instructions. Instead of displaying mine directly on the wall,
I attached it to a piece of extra cork board that I had laying around. I did this for three reasons:

one. I want to take it with me when I move.
two. I'm so indecisive and I know I'll be moving the decal around all the time :)
three. My bathroom wall has a weird texture that wouldn't have allowed the decal to go on smoothly.


The hardest part about everything was choosing where to put it.
Some of you might be wondering why I chose the bathroom...haha!
Well, that's the first place I go when I wake up & it's where I spend the majority of my mornings while I'm getting ready to go to class. So it's imperative that I make that room as motivational as possible. See, there is a method to my madness sometimes ;)



I asked my brother if he could pick me up some chalk when he went to the store, thinking he'd come back with a normal pack of white chalk. NOPE. He dropped this mega box of sidewalk chalk off at my doorstep. I'm stoked to be able to use all of the colors! Thanks brother :)


This is the thumbs up of a girl who is graduating in a month...HOLLA!
.
 Are you convinced that Ashley's shop is irresistible yet?
No? Okay give me one more chance to sway you.

What better way to that than with a...

Yep, that's right - Ashley has been kind enough to offer a $20 shop credit (open to international readers & valid on decals or prints) to one of you fabulous people!

  7. If I won the $20 credit, I would use it towards the "Important Dates" decal and place it in my office (I work from home) and use it to jot down important deadlines, meetings, miscellaneous appointments, things like that. I love the idea of your speech bubble! That was a really cute idea to place it in your bathroom. Also, congratulations on graduating soon!

  8. Also, I wanted to add that in the Rafflecopter, it isn't allowing me to post my Tweet URL or my Twitter name. For the record, it's TiaSmall7282 and I did post the tweet and followed both pages. Just wanted you to know that at least in my case, the form wasn't allowing me to enter in the data. :)

  18. Oh hey that's cute! :-) I'm so excited for you to be graduating!! You deserve the break too.

    P.s. I saw the movie yesterday. So as we open the theater door there was this warning that the opening scenes may cause dizziness, nausea, and seizure like activity. And I'm like oh great!! Lol so I did have to close my eyes for a couple times because I'm really sensitive to motion like that.
    But my hubby gave it 4 stars! He hadn't read it but he pretty much could follow and needed some clarification. I thought katniss was a great actress. I had tears in my eyes when she went up for prim. Yes, the characters weren't developed enough in the movie and the fake relationship wasn't played up enough. But it was good. :-)
    Sorry for posting so much haha

    ReplyDelete

  29. Was I supposed to leave a comment through the Rafflecopter? Not sure, so I'm leaving it here! I would like the 'I love the boy with the bread' because I'm a big HG nerd and love Peeta. However, I must admit, the 'may the odds be ever in your favor' is also tempting.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wow! I'm not sure I could pick just one. I obviously love the Hunger Games ones! But I'm a sucker for anything chalkboard too!

    Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
