Sponsor Love: Words Alone & Fabulous Fashions 4 Sensible Style

 Hello there!!  My name is Allie and I write Words Alone.

I graduated from the University of Oklahoma in December with a Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies, emphasis in the Development of Women's Social Rights.  I am currently working at a plasma center until I decide to start grad school.  I'm originally from the eastern part of Oklahoma and consider myself a country girl.

I enjoy to read, write, dance, cook, and spend time with those I care about.  I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for.  We tend to get ourselves in trouble a lot., but it's always worth it!  I have found the love of my life and am so very thankful for that.  We have two precious dogs.  One is a pit bull terrier, the other is half pit bull half random bird dog breed.  We call them our children, they act like kids most of time anyway.

My blog, Words Alone, is about my search for beauty, meaning, and myself through words.  I write about daily adventures, recipes I find or come up with, and other random things.  The meaning behind the title is that words alone cannot define me, but they can tell quite a story about me.
I do a few features on my blog, Wordless Wednesday (which some know is just a picture entry) and Obscure Monday.  Obscure Monday is something I came up with that I hadn't seen around the blogging world.  It provides a unique look at who I am.  In it I find an obscure movie that most have never seen and review it.  I'll give the premise of the movie, what I liked and didn't like, and my overall thoughts on it.  I don't give away the twists, I want people to step outside the box and watch something they wouldn't normally watch.  I've always loved weird, B-movies so this is just an extension of that love.
 My blog originally started as an assignment for a class, but it has evolved quite a bit since then.  I have grown to love the blogging world and all my blogging friends.  I always enjoy meeting new people and learning about life outside of Oklahoma.  You can email me at ogleam[at]hotmail[dot]com

 Happy Tuesday, "Love is Everywhere" readers!
This is Liesl from "Fabulous Fashions 4 Sensible Style," and I am so excited to be a sponsor of Katie's inspirational blog, and have been so happy to see how quickly it has grown in such a short amount of time!

I am an actor living in LA who spends notable time in NYC, I have a passion for design and just love fashion!  However, over the years, I found that I got the most compliments, be it from family, friends, strangers, people in the music, fashion, or entertainment industry, etc., on things that cost me the least amount of money, and held anything but name brand tags from designer stores.

Therefore, the concept of my blog grew from my belief that fabulous fashion can be achieved at an affordable price.  The key is in how you put everything together and a simple smile as your best accessory! :)

On my blog, I help readers create their own sensible style, which I often refer to as cheap and cheerful.  All by putting together celebrity and reader request "Looks 4 Less," showcasing looks I have sported with a complete price breakdown called "Look of the Day," as well as an assortment of affordable fashions with links to each piece to make buying them easy, some affordable online shopping sites and lots of discounts to help you save even more!

Aside from fashion, you will find a "Get Crafty" segment, from time to time, featuring easy DIY projects I have come up with, as well as some healthy recipes and "Picture Shows" from my many adventures and road trips.  Since recently getting engaged, I have taken part in "Wedding Wednesday," which offers bits from my wedding planning and wedding inspiration in general.

Feel free to stop by my blog, facebook and/or bloglovin' pages and say, "hiii!"  Thank you so much for reading a little about moi, and be sure to let everyone know about Katie and "Love is Everywhere" because it is a stop in blogland, as I refer to it, that needs to be make! :)

Sending endless smiles your way, but remember to take one and wear it with your next outfit! :)
