Calvin Klein Fragrance Mother’s Day Promotion With Free Orchid,

{I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Calvin Klein. I received product samples to facilitate my review & a promotional item to thank me for my participation.}

Moms focus on the needs of their families all year, and hopefully it doesn’t take Mother’s Day to thank them for all they do.

But it is nice to have a special day just for us, right? I’m looking forward to Landon’s card already.

Do you need a Mother’s Day gift idea?

Check out the Mother’s Day Orchid promotion at Macy’s and Dillard’s stores!

Through Mother’s Day, anyone who purchases a large spray from the euphoria Calvin Klein fragrance collection will receive a complimentary live orchid. Buy it at Macy’s or Dillard’s. {click to continue}

posts you missed, DagmarBleasdale.comI realized today that you didn’t get an email about my last three posts if you are a subscriber to Dagmar’s Home!

First of all: thank you so much for subscribing! I hope you’re enjoying the much prettier emails from Feedblitz.

I’m still playing around with the design, but I’m so much happier with them, and their support is incredibly helpful.

If you’re getting an email about this post– yay, I fixed the problem! If you are getting three more because Feedblitz is sending you the ones it missed: I’m sorry, just ignore them.

Here are the fun posts you missed. Just click on the picture.

What I Learned From Starting a Blog & Being an Entrepreneur

by Dagmar Bleasdale on April 27, 2015

starting a blog,

Many of you have probably wondered about having your own blog or starting a small Internet business or shop.

Maybe you already write a blog and are playing with the idea of starting another one?

When I started my blog Dagmar’s Home (then called Dagmar’s momsense) in 2009, I knew that I didn’t want this to be just a hobby.

Starting a blog, Dagmar's Home,

I envisioned, I dared to dream, that this blog would grow popular enough so I could make money with it.

I think it takes that kind of thinking to make it as an entrepreneur. And after years of long hours and dedication, I am now making a nice living with my blog.

If you are interested in starting your own blog or website and hope to make money with it, I want to share with you what I did when I started. {click to continue}
