Baltimore - DC Spring Vibes and A Giveaway!!

It's Spring in Baltimore!!

(Piper and I at the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC)

Don't let me drown you guys with all the killer spring vibes, I just couldn't help sharing them with you. I love this time of year so I go a bit overboard with the floral shots, I even have an Instagram account that is ONLY devoted to floral photography. It's a big big love of mine, as most of you know I was a floral designer for darn near 15 years. It was the only job I have ever had that never felt like a day of work, kind of like being an influencer. It's absolutely true what they say about feeling passion for whatever you do, it's the key to success for sure. Ok I'll stop chatting your heads off, we will make this post a mostly image post and let the flower shots do the talking. After all flowers are plain just good for the soul! My favorite flower is the Stargazer Lily, hence my Instagram username @DanaStargazerTruitt, and my flower page @_StarsFlowers, check them out and tell me what you think. If you don't follow yet please do. I look forward to your input/comments on the flowers shots. I'm also running a HUGE GIVEAWAY on my flower page as well, 2 people will win $1000 cash. 

Above is Piper and I in Mt. Vernon Baltimore Maryland, just across the street from the Washington Monument, and surrounded by magnolias. Below is another Magnolia shot in Druid Hill Park by the Baltimore Zoo, just outside of the Rawlings Conservatory. Piper was definitely trying to eat a bee she saw fly bye. 

The shot above is the Patterson Park Pagoda, which is also in Baltimore. It too is completely framed by magnolias in the riches shades of pink and purple. Last but not least is one of my favorite pictures of Piper to date, I call it Piper prancing through the tulips, and this too is at the Rawlings Conservatory. They always have thee most amazing flowers on display all year round. Doesn't Piper look absolutely gorgeous? Of course I am a bit partial to Pip and those tulips are so colorful, it's especially special because they all match her harness. Just a little bit of pink perfection before you head onto the GIVEAWAY info below.

Well it's finally time for the GIVEAWAY, I hope I didn't bore you too much with my spring flower shots.

  3. Hello,

    I found your Giveaway “Our Fab Fash Life Spring Giveaway ” in several sweepstakes directories but it isn't getting proper exposures as it should be.

    Now, you can submit your sweeps on with really affordable price.

    Love to hear from you.

  5. Hi Dana. I commented on CHIC by Alison Rose’s site, but when I hit send, I received a message from GoDaddy: ‘Access Denied’. (It was on the ‘How to turn your bathroom into a spa’ post.) I hate to bring this to you, but I got ahead of myself and grabbed the entry before I tried to post my comment. I took a screenshot of the GoDaddy message and also of my comment I tried to post. I’ll await any instruction you may have for me.
    Thanks, Dawn Dodgen {Ouachitadawn}
