Thursdays are YOUR Days, Vol 19

I'm writing this post at Starbucks. Alone. While drinking an iced coffee and enjoying the smell of my freshly (and professionally) done hair. And, admiring my pretty new pedicure. And, thinking, wow. I'm really live it up here. I might even start to feel like a pampered housewife if I didn't remember the speech Mario (that's my hair guy's name. Mario) gave me about how I really should come to him more often than every seven months.

And, "...blah blah blah spit ends". And, "...yada yada yada drab, lifeless color".

What? Do people get their hair cut more often than every seven months? My bad.

ANYWAY...that was a huge digression. We're here to talk about parties! Specifically, this one! And, I have a little change-up to run by you. As you may have noticed, I didn't do a feature post this week. Let me tell you why. I've decided to do my features through Facebook (they say Facebook is the "new" thing). And, through pinterest (they say pinterest is an up and coming force, in which we should all reckon). And, through twitter (don't even get me started on what twitter is. Because, heck if I know).

It just seems that a whole lot of people getting their content from facebook and pinterest. So, why not put your incredible goodness right where there people are?? Yeah, I thought it was brilliant too.

And, of course you are welcome to follow me on facebook and pinterest to keep up with the features! Oh, and you can follow me on twitter, too. If you like hearing me twit about things.

Feel free to give me feedback about this in the comments section. I like your feedback.

This Week on 52 Mantels:
On Friday I shared the Reversible Hairbow tutorial from last month's guest post at My Sister's Suitcase

Mantel Monday was a blue, blue day. But, in a good way.

And, yesterday I shared the yummy recipe for Banana Cookie Bars & Nutella Buttercream Icing. Feel free to make just the Nutella Buttercream Icing. And, eat it straight from the bowl with a big spoon. I won't tell. I won't judge. I won't hold it against you in a court of law.

And, what about you?? Link up your recent projects so we can admire!

1) If you aren't following 52 Mantels, please do so!
(But, hey, even if you don't, you can still party with us. We're cool like that.)
2) This is a party, so mix and mingle. Please check out some of your fellow party-goers!
3) Grab my button and put it in your post, on your blog or just add a text link back to 52 Mantels!
4) Feel free to link up as many posts as you'd like

52 Mantels


  1. Interesting way to feature the "features". I'm all for using facebook, pinterst and twitter. I like never use twitter but, maybe I should get on the ball with that. Also, I've been so hesitant to set up a facebook page for my blog but, I'm thinking that it might be time. Anyway---change can be good and I'm with you on the "every 7 months hair cut"....I am so overdue! I hope you enjoyed your time!

  2. You'd definitely be the first to do the features other than your blog...I commend your reasons for doing so and trying to get your featured bloggers traffic :). I personally don't use twitter much, nor do I use facebook for blog following or have a facebook page for my blog...however I'm definitely a Pinterest addict so I'll be viewing them there!

    Thanks so much for hosting!

  3. Emily, Thank you for the party! I agree with you! Love to feature on our blog, but we also feature those things on FB and Twitter! Social media is sooo confusing to me at times, but it is here to stay! :)

  4. Cute Cute Cute...Bows! Thanks for the FB feature this week! So sweet! I love your party and am excited for your new change up! Love trying new things! XO, Aimee

  5. Sounds tres smart to moi ;)

    Still loving the blue mantel!!
    I always wait until the last minute to get my hair done too.
    I am baaaad.

    Thanks for hosting!!

  6. Em- thanks for hosting, I'll have to check out Facebook and try to avoid etting sucked in:)


  7. Thanks for hosting this wonderful blog hop! I couldn't find anything in the rules but one of my links is my blog hop that I'm having on my blog - if you don't allow that then please delete it.

  8. Thanks for hosting, love the idea of highlighting features on pinterest. I practically squeal when I see something from my blog has been pinned...yes I am new at this!! : )
    Also love the thought of a haircut, nails and Starbucks on my own!

  9. Glad you had some "me" time today! I know about the every 7 month thing :) My hair girl makes me schedule my next appt with her now, otherwise it would probably be closer to a year! Love the feature idea too. We're trying to do a few features on FB every week. It's hard to have time for everything! Hope you're having a good week :)

  10. Thanks for hosting. See you next week.
    PS. I don't get Twitter too.

  11. Thanks so much for hosting Emily! Love the new feature idea. I feel like a bit of a twit on twitter, too. :)

  12. Thanks for hosting Emily! I was so hoping to keep my facebook page just for personal stuff and not have another place to keep up with everything. Guess I better make a facebook page for my blog. I'm not a twitter girl either. Oh....and my hairdresser just spins me towards the mirror, holds up my hair and says,"Really, Danni? You've been that busy for the last 6 months?!!" Don't feel like the lone ranger!!

  13. Thanks for hosting! I am glad to be back with something to share, and love the new idea for features! and hahaha we all have a Mario ;)

  14. Thank you for hosting! Have a wonderful weekend ;)

  15. I'm very inspired by the framed fabric in your blue mantel. Beautiful! Thanks for hosting this.

  16. Always love this party! Thanks for making the decision for the features. I'm sure we're all excited for new traffic.

  17. I would love it if you could come link up to my first/new link party starting Monday called Model Monday's! Model what ever you would like home, fashion, crafts, recipe, etc! Look forward to seeing you at the party!

  18. Emily,
    Thanks for hosting and sharing your week with us. I LOVE your taste and your style. You are so creative!

  19. Thanks for hosting! LOVE that blue mantle you featured!!

    Amy {aprons & ambition}
