This is a big day for Short & Sweet! 100 followers? What?! This was on my list of goals for 2019! We did it y’all. A couple of years ago I started this blog as a fun way to try something new. I have learned so much through the blog including graphic design, how to plan, promote, and manage, photography, improvement in my writing, sharing what I’m interested in and believe in, digital and computer skills, and have been able to work with other bloggers to name a few! Thank you to those who have been with me throughout this “journey” (ew, that was cringy and cliche), and have helped support Short & Sweet throughout the years! I have experienced nothing but kindness and encouragement here! For that, I am very thankful! It’s so important to have safe spaces in which people/bloggers can share their opinions, beliefs, and ideas. I have met some awesome bloggers and readers, and cannot wait to meet more. It’s been really cool to see Short & Sweet grow! You may be wondering what’s next for the blog. Well, the next step I’d like to take with Short & Sweet is to give her a little (big) face-lift! A.K.A. upgrade so that I’ll have a “.com” website, update the theme, etc.  Hopefully by the end of this year! So be sure to keep your eyes out for the new and improved Short & Sweet Blog! More learning to come for sure. Thank you again for your support, encouragement, and interest. Now, the moment you’ve all been waiting for…

Giveaway Time!

To celebrate this milestone for Short & Sweet, I decided to have a little giveaway! It’s my first one so have patience, haha. I’m very curious to see who will win! Let’s hop into the prize, rules, and details! ⇒


I was trying to decide what to giveaway, and I decided on those essentials for a cozy fall day! I guess we could call it “The Perfect, Cozy Fall Day Starter Kit”.



Obviously, first, you need to strike a match and light a candle that has all the fall feels and smells. I found this candle called Harvest Pumpkin & Clove with cinnamon and orange peel. MMMMM…. yes, please! I want to eat it. Is it me or does it not feel like fall until the fall candles are lit? The second I smell that pumpkin, spice, and goodness…girl, put me in a sweater and pull out the boots. Anyone with me?


Next, I found this adorable mug! I have a thing for blush pink, and it coordinated with the candle so I was sold.


You cannot have an empty mug! It needs to live to its full potential. So I included some Ghirardelli hot chocolate for y’all. Ah, just thinking about curling up with a movie or book with some hot chocolate and this candle burning is making me so happy! Can you say perfect, cozy fall day?


Last, but certainly not least, I added some Burt’s Bees lip balm! Lip balm is a necessity in the fall and winter seasons. I mean, the fact that it’s Burt’s Bees isn’t bad either ( yes, I am helping you fulfill all your VSCO girl dreams, lol) 😉
