Be Your Own Designer with AlliedShirts.com!

There have been so many times when my friends and I have wanted to order custom-made shirts. But we could never find a quality place that would allow us to place totally customized orders, all within our budget. This is why I am SO happy to have found AlliedShirts.com. These shirts are 100 percent customizable and trust me when I say, the process is painless. Let me tell you a little about my first AlliedShirts.com experience:

The first step to designing your own shirt is to choose a style. They offer everything from short sleeve, long sleeve, girl cut, hoodies and more! Next, choose from a wide variety of colors! I had such a hard time choosing but I finally decided on the beautiful carolina blue. From there, it's all up to you! You can choose to:
  • Add text: decide the font, size, color and position.
  • Add an image: choose a high quality image; adjust the size and position. The site will even give you the option of making the background transparent; this way, you can add the image to a colored shirt.
  • Add a name: put your last name or nickname across the back shoulders of the shirt!
After designing your ideal shirt, AlliedShirts.com will allow you to choose how many shirts you want and in what sizes. This makes bulk ordering a breeze!

The last thing I want to mention is something that I feel is incredibly important for any business: great customer service. I received a confirmation email after my order was placed. However, AlliedShirts.com emailed me less than a business day after to notify me that my photo was not high quality enough. At the time, I thought I would have to go back and re-do my whole order... but no! The email instructed me on how to view my original photo and what to look for in a high quality one. After finding a better version on Google images, all I had to do was attach the image to a reply email. AlliedShirts.com did the rest and 10 days later, my shirt showed up looking absolutely perfect and incredibly high quality!

I honestly could not have asked for a better experience with AlliedShirts.com. I absolutely love my shirt and can't wait to tell people that I designed it myself! How cool is that?! Don't forget to sign up for their emails to get access to great discounts and deals! Also, check them out of Facebook and Twitter.

Check out AlliedShirts.com and have fun being your own designer!

The Perfect Playlist for Your Halloween Party

This time of the year is my favorite. Halloween allows you to dress up, get creative, and scare the pants off of anyone around you! But by far, the best part of this spooky, yet thrilling holiday are the parties. 
Hocus PocusHalloween parties are like no other; they're usually full of all different decorations and everyone is completely dressed up. Not to mention, you can really theme everything! From the food, to the decor, to the drinks served, any host can add their own fun or spooky flair. 

And now, you have the last piece to the puzzle-- a playlist filled with the perfect songs for any party. I've used this playlist at my past three Halloween bonanzas and it's always a hit! The playlist contains the well-known classics, like Monster Mash, as well as some amped up party tunes, like a dubstep version of the Halloween theme song. The perfect combination to get your guests singing and dancing. Click on the following link for the entire 29 song playlist:

So whether you need this final touch for your Halloween bash, or you just love the holiday, listen to this playlist and get yourself in the festive state of mind.

What's your favorite Halloween song? I'd love to add it to my list!

Product Alert! Stay Stylish While Organized with Modern Bohemian

I'm one of those crazy people who loves to stay organized. Well... at least, I TRY to stay organized (it doesn't always work.) And what's better than that great "wow, I've really got my stuff together" feeling? Doing it in style.

Last week, I ran across the cutest, lightweight binder while in Wal-Mart. It's a line called "Modern Bohemian" by Mead, a brand I'm sure you've seen on binders, notebooks and school/work supplies for years. The design is fun, pretty and even inspirational! Of course, I immediately scooped it up and bought it.


So if you love to be inspired, trendy and organized on a daily basis, check out all of Mead's "Modern Bohemian" products and be sure to snag this binder from Wal-Mart ASAP!
