Feathers, Feathers Everywhere!

IMAG0197If you follow MelissaStuff on Facebook (and if you don’t, you should because there’s extra special stuff ONLY posted there sometimes), you know that I recently partnered with Plum District to run a giveaway for feather extensions.

Today was the fun day that we scheduled for me and the three winners to go claim our prizes. The special offer was run by Backstage Salon which is just off of Main St. in downtown Frisco. It’s a ridiculously cute all green house on the outside, and decorated absolutely adorable on the inside. But it is a street off the beaten path so you might not readily see it.

Here is what our feathers ended up looking like:


Jen (on the left) wanted a more subtle look and you can just barely see her black and white feathers peeking out over her ear. I’m not so much for the subtle and you can see my bright red and white feathers there . . . another small striped feather is also hanging down longer but it’s hard to see in this shot.


Cheryl followed her husband’s advice and did bright blue and yellow – which seems to fit her personality well anyway. Trisha’s feathers looked the best in my opinion because her hair is curly and so it nicely set the straighter feathers off . . . and her three-year-old daughter even got a little feather of her own. If you look really hard you can spot it.

After our beautification, we all were able to eat at Mi Chula together and had an enjoyable afternoon. Thank you so much ladies. It was great to have the chance to spend time with you.

Be on the lookout there are more great giveaways coming on MelissaStuff – in fact we have one that ends tomorrow with three winners! Go to the giveaways page and enter before the contest ends.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
