Well, today is the day I’ve been waiting months impatiently for! My bridesmaid gift idea shoot is on Style Me Pretty today! I have seriously been sitting with anticipation to finally be able to talk about this, but when SMP tells you to hold off on posting because they want to include it in their post schedule, you do it!
Here are a few of the photos, but head over to Style Me Pretty to see the entire photo gallery and to see all of the product details. There are quite a few of my favorite brands featured including Kendra Scott and Gigi New York/Graphic Image. In fact, Gigi and I were so excited about this shoot, we are going to give away two of the hot pink, personalized BFF phone cases seen in this shoot. You have the opportunity to win one for you and one for your BFF! (Have her enter too, and you’ll have twice the entries!)
If you’re interested in ordering a custom phone case, Gigi New York is currently restocking their phone cases which will be available soon. In the meantime, you can check out the options at Graphic Image!
Follow the Rafflecopter instructions below and good luck! Giveaway will end one week from today, and winner will be informed via email. Winner must reply and claim their prize within 48 hours or a new winner will be picked.
A special thanks to my BFFs for being in this shoot with me!

Okay you procrastinators, you’re running out of time to get that perfect Mother’s Day gift, but luckily for you, today I’m hosting a giveaway with Laura Row Studio that will make for the absolute best gift!
I haven’t done a print/art post in a very long time, so today’s post is well overdue. I had so much fun styling these little vignettes for today’s photos too. I’m excited to introduce you to Laura Row Studio! In her own words, Laura is a watercolor artist with a “focus on frivolity.” She loves painting pretty perfume bottles, fancy desserts and famous ladies. TWO readers will win prints by Laura to either keep for yourself (tsk, tsk) or give to a lovely mother (way to go, daughter of the year!)
For the glamorous mom, we’ve got a selection of perfume prints. I’d love to hang these in a powder room or on top of a vanity. For the home decorating pro, there’s a lovely floral arrangement print, that would look oh-so elegant on a gallery wall or on a well-edited shelf.
So it’s your pick! Which one would you love to give your mom on Sunday? Here’s how to enter:
1. Follow @KrystalBennett on Instagram
2. Find the giveaway photo posted this morning
2. Tag a friend who you think would love Laura Row Studio
This is a super short giveaway in order for the winners to receive their prints in a timely manner. For that reason, the contest will end tomorrow at midnight to ensure the prints will ship out on Thursday morning via Priority Mail.
This giveaway was sponsored by Laura Row Studio. See more of her work in her Etsy Shop and on her Facebook page!
The Kentucky Derby is one of the most fashionable events of the year in the South, and just like any special event, you’ll want to put your best face (and hat) forward. So today, I’ve teamed up with Cottonelle to share some of my bathroom essentials when it comes to feeling clean, fresh and confident for your major events.
For special occasions, I always use a primer and makeup setting spray. Concealer, a fabulous mascara and a chic lip color are all absolute musts. But while some of the main staples in my beauty case are the obvious makeup products, there are also makeup cleansers that round out my essentials list. I can’t live without my eye makeup remover pads and face cleansing cloths. In the same way, I always have a couple squares of tissue ready.
A thick and durable tissue like Cottonelle’s Clean Care toilet tissue is always handy while you’re getting ready in the bathroom. I use it for wiping down my makeup products, cleaning up my makeup area and blotting my lipsticks – the last thing you want is to blot and end up with paper stuck all over your lips like with thinner tissue. I also use it to wipe off makeup brushes before switching bronzer or blush colors. Plus, once you’re finished, you’re safe to flush or throw away because all Cottonelle products are flushable and septic-safe.
And now, Cottenelle wants to help YOU get ready all year long – The Cottonelle Great Finish Sweepstakes is a giving you the opportunity to win Cottonelle products for a full year depending on the outcome of this year’s Kentucky Derby! The best part – there’s not just one winner, there could be as many as 15,000 winners if the race outcome aligns.

There’s no denying you will always, always need bathroom tissue products – so how about the chance to get them for free for a year? Think of all the money you’ll save to spend on next year’s derby dress. 😉
This post was sponsored by Cottonelle, but all opinions and the products pictured are my own.
I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I thought it might be a good time to show you what’s been going on on Instagram. If you don’t already follow along with this account (@KrystalBennett), you’re missing out on behind the scenes blog photos. Here are a couple recent favorites:
1. My Easter Sunday look was comprised of Pret A Porter seersucker and Jamberry nail shields. I love this floral pattern, & after a week, they’re still on my nails just as perfectly as the day I put them on!
2. Florals, flamingos and citron polka dots – three dreamy American Eagle bikinis that I scooped up for swimsuit season.
3. Working on self affirmations lately to build a better vision for APoL and where it’s going this year.
4. Bubbly, fresh blooms and bffs – a special photoshoot coming up very soon.
5. Best invention ever for homemade (and more healthy) baked donuts – the donut pan.
6. Sneak peek at my date night photoshoot with Kaela, Marc Fisher shoes and Ivanka Trump!
