just by living & GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCED!

Well Hello lovely Blue Pea readers! My name is Adriana and I am just tickled pink to be guest posting for Gianna. I am a big fan of her blog, she is so inspiring and adorable, no?
I have a blog called Just By Living which chronicles my transition from a freelance fashion writer into Motherhood. I started it because while I loved my job as a fashion writer I needed a spot to talk about all the amazing and sometimes scary things that come along with being a Mama. I also own a brand spankin new Vintage shop and write for the most beautiful children's clothing shop, Monkey & The Bug.
I am just now launching my shop called Mode De Vie, which means way of life. Growing up my mother was an avid thrifter and vintage lover. She was boho chic long before the Mary Kate conquered the look. My Mama never shopped in the mall and yet always looked amazing. I am so thankful for her great sense of style and unique tastes for teaching me to be an individual and listen to my own personal sense of style, not what others told me. This is why my shop is called Mode De Vie, for me vintage is a way of life.

On Just By Living one of my favorite features is called A Few of my Favorite Things,  where I showcase bits and pieces of what I am loving and lusting over. The following is the vintage shop edition. Enjoy and thanks so much to Gianna for having me!
