4 in ’14 – Krystal Hartley

fd-krystal-4in14

Another Featured Designer Friday is here Sweet Shoppers, and this week we’re bringing you part two of Krystal Hartley’s fun and flirty 4 in ’14 spotlight which is going to give you a taste of some of her favorite new things, a peek at her travel wish list and MORE! I have been loving the chance to get to know our designers a little better through words and pictures, and I hope you have been enjoying it, too! Don’t forget between now and next Thursday, December 18th, you’ll get Winter’s Veil, Krystal’s gorgeous full-sized featured designer kit, FREE when you spend $10 in the shoppe!

krystal_selfies

1 – I have a hard time smiling at the camera, but I was able to get a fairly natural smile in this and ended up loving it. 2- I just thought it was really cool how the camera and the sun pulled off these really vibrant colors. 3 – Trying to pull of a sexy Clark Kent / Superman knockoff, but I ended up with something a bit silly. 4- Selfie I took for Michael one day when we were texting. He loves me in polka dots.

krystal_favorites

1-These boots! OMG! I bought them in black and brown, and I wear them all the time. They are super comfy and look fabulous. I’m always complimented by random people. :) 2- Reversible and portable backdrop for taking selfies. I love that I can block out some of the distracting background since I’m using the front camera on my phone and don’t have ability to manually focus it how I’d like. 3- My Younique 3D Fiber Lashes mascara is amazeballs. It creates so much drama. Love love. 4- After going back and forth on whether or not to drop a couple of hundred dollars on some popular headphones, I stumbled on these for just $70 with equal or better reviews. I just really love full sound when I’m listening to my carefully curated music collection.

krystal_music

I’m a huge music junkie. I browse the new releases on iTunes every week and listen to all the new stuff. I listen to all the tracks of albums from artists I know I like, and I try new artists all the time. I pick and choose my favorite selections based on that experience, and I’d estimate that less than 30% of my favorites end up in mainstream. 1-I rarely purchase full albums, but this Duality album by Set It Off is amazing. I have played it on repeat quite a lot since its acquisition. 2- Ed Sheeran’s “Kiss Me” is probably my favorite sexy song right now. 3 – Austin Mahone’s “What about Love” single. Ugh! Guilty pleasure right here. 4- With well over 1000 plays, Dev’s “Bass Down Low” is my most played track.

krystal_wanderlust

Traditionally, I’m not a big traveler, but I think that has had a lot to do with convenience, timing, and budget. In this stage of life, however, Michael and I are enjoying the idea of and beginning to play more travel. 1- England, especially London sounds really fun to me. I’ll have to visit the famous Jane Austen cities, of course. 2- Hawaii is definitely a place I’m eager to visit. I’m not really a fan of Texas beaches, but the beautifully clear waters, gorgeous landscapes and tropical breezes sounds so wonderful. 3- I have Irish roots and have wanted to visit for as long as I can remember. Like most of the places that interest me, I’m fascinated by the history and beauty. 4- Who doesn’t want to visit Italy? I’ve read so much about it. I want to see the epic cities, amazing artistry and gorgeous countryside.

——————————–

Don’t forget to check back in with us next Friday and every Friday after that as we put the rest of our incredible designers into the spotlight. Each of them have such quirky personalities that I’m positive each week will bring new surprises and special treats that we can’t wait to share with you!

fd-allie-4in14header

Another Featured Designer Friday is here Sweet Shoppers, and this week we’re bringing you part two of Allie Llacer’s beautiful 4 in ’14 spotlight which is going to give you a peek at her bucket list, a look at some of her favorite kits and MORE! I have been loving the chance to get to know our designers a little better through words and pictures, and I hope you have been enjoying it, too!

4in14-family

I rarely take selfies, or solo pics. So I’m usually only in the picture if I have someone take a picture of the family. Joseph and I were married 12 years ago. Austin is 7 and Ashleia is 5. Not sure about the age of the orangutan mother and child, though. 1 – Taken in Singapore Zoo this summer, 2 & 4 – A photoshoot with the entire extended family, 3 – Our family at a Church wedding.

4in14-places

Amazing countries I’ve been to and wouldn’t mind going back.

(top left) Gondola ride in Venice during our honeymoon. We also went to Rome, Florence, Pisa, Verona.

(top right) Huangshan Mountains in China. I went with my parents before I was married. We also went to the Great Wall, Beijing and Shanghai. I’ve visited China several more times since, but didn’t do much sightseeing anymore.

(bottom left) Legoland in Malaysia. Our first vacation with only the 4 of us. We flew to Singapore then took a bus to Malaysia, stayed at the Legoland Hotel and had tons of fun! The park wasn’t crowded so we enjoyed the rides as many times as we want.

(bottom right) The Louvre, France. After our paid tour in Italy during our Honeymoon, we took a train to France and explored Nice and Paris on our own! Eiffel Tower, boat ride in the Seine River, museums and the constant hunt for restaurants that serve rice.

4in14-bucket

My Bucket List. (top left) Witness an Aurora. (top right) Fly on a hot air balloon.. preferably over something scenic. (bottom left) Learn to play the piano. I’m not musically-inclined, but the sound of the piano makes my heart happy. (bottom right) Play with snow and build a snowman. As someone who wears summer clothing the whole year, I’ve been to a few places where it was very cold (for me) but never actually saw snow.

4in14-faves

A Few of My Random Favorites! (top left) Salt and pepper squid. I always try to order this when the menu has it. (top right) The Fray. Went to their concert in Manila to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary 2 years ago. Love their music! (bottom left) My collection of Coach bags. And this satchel is my absolute favorite. (bottom right) Lindsay Phillips switchflops. Straps to make your flipflops match your outfit? Yes, please!

4in14-kits

 

Here are just a few of my favorite kits too! Ho Ho Ho – I love the homespun look.  Baby Girl – I love both Boy and Girl kits! Beach Boys – I also love both Boy and Girl kits! Zombiemania – I had so much fun working on this kit!
