Share the Love Saturdays: Business Edition!

Hey guys!
So first off let me say that it's been forever since one of my share the love saturdays posts! I really want to ressurect this series because it's super fun to learn about new bloggers and all that, so if you want to be featured and have a blog or a youtube channel, click here to learn what you need to send me! I'm also thinking of doing a post on all my favorite bloggers like Cali, Rebe, Natalie, Ivy, and Hope for all of you that don't already know about them.

This post is different from the others because it is on businesses. And more so, on businesses that my friends and classmates run. They are not sponsoring me in any way, shape, or form, but I wanted to "share the love" with them and help get the word out. I know this might not be everyone's cup of tea because I am recommending things that would benefit people I know, but I truly love all of these things and I know you will too! Also, please no hate comments! Leave now if you're going to be upset by this post! I have over 500 others you can read!

Festival Ink
This shop is run by Sera, who is one of my friends and was my teammate when I was cheerleading! She found a way to make really rad temporary tattoos and she's selling them on her website, which I'll link here! Everything on this site is under $5, which makes them super affordable and she also does CUSTOM PRINTING, so if you don't see something you like, you can send her an email and she'll create one that fits your needs! It also ships super quickly (it's shipped out 1-2 days after you order it), which is awesome because I hate it when shipping takes forever!

Salt and Water Hawaii
I don't actually know the owner of this shop, but her sister is in my grade and was a fellow cheerleader with me! This shop sells earrings and really cool pouches! I love these clutches because the owner's sister takes all the photos and they look super beachy and tropical! They are a tad bit expensive, but if you get them on clearance, they are cheaper and they are great for storing things in your bag or you could even use it as a "clutch" bag if you don't want to carry around a lot of things! You can check out their selection of items by clicking here! 

Akemi Swimwear
My classmate started this swimwear company and I absolutely love it! The swimsuits on this site are a little bit pricy, but they are very well made and really cute! If you want to invest in a nice suit that isn't as pricey as acacia, then you might want to check out this website! They also get new inventory frequently, so keep checking their site to see what's on sale and what's new! You can shop their site by clicking here!

So I hope that this shameless promoting of my classmates and friends wasn't super annoying, but I honestly love all of their websites and products and I wouldn't be recommending them if I didn't think you guys would too! Don't forget to click here and apply to be in my next share the love saturdays post!



  1. Firstly, its sad that you had to put a disclaimer at the start - but totally understand why you did - because I absolutely love these kind of posts!
    It incredible when people even start business - especially really cools. I can't wait to check out the bikini's!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. thank you so much for this comment Kelsey it means a lot to me! I really love posts like this too and I really love all of the amazing things that my friends and classmates are doing! I think it's sad that it's come to the point where I have to put disclaimers on posts like these, but as long as people like you like reading these posts, I'll keep doing them!
