About Me

I have been working on the internet since 1991 but did not really get into the blogging scene until 2009 when I created a social network called Live Laugh Love To Shop
I get a lot of satisfaction in helping others, it is very rewarding to me so, I had 689 members both men and women, all ages. 

Besides sharing creative ideas this blog is all about being frugal, sharing ideas, recipes, gardening, product reviews that are home related, events, giveaways and contests.

The second is becoming my favorite, it is all about fashion and that has always been one of my passions. Whether its about hair, shoes, clothes, jewelry, accessories, I love them all and this is what “Live Laugh Love To Shop Blog” is all about. A way to express what I like in colors and styles. Pinterest has become a favorite place to visit, a way to create fun boards for me the talk about and share. I offer product reviews that are related to fashion, home, and techie products.

I have really found that blogging is such a rewarding experience and I have met so many wonderful friends while visiting other blogs. It has also given me the opportunity to create a niche for each blog, which took a while.

I am a mother of 4, I have 5 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and after working the last
19 years with my husband, I needed to reconnect with women and found that through
blogging I have met some wonderful people.

Some of my favorite things to do are cooking creating healthy meals and entertaining.
My hobby is gardening and occasionally make jewelry.
I love to be outdoors, would love to live closer to the mountains and enjoy a good book and have a new love for Pinterest.

  1. Hello,

    I am writing today in hopes of gaining your interest in reviewing the Dermagist Skin Care line on your blog. We often times do reviews / giveaways with bloggers such as yourself. I saw your site and thought perhaps it would be a good match for us both. Usually we provide you with a free product of your choice, such as the Complete Rejuvenation System. You can put a picture and a review on your website and even run a sweepstakes for your readers to win a Free Treatment (depending on which one you choose yourself) of their own. Then, when someone does win, you can simply email us the name and address of the winner and I will have one sent out to them right away. Our website is www.dermagist.com. Please take a chance to review our products as we have many products and different packages.

    What we ask for from you is this. You must link to us from your review. If you choose to do a giveaway on your website, we ask that your contestants like us on Facebook and comment as to why they like or are excited to try the products, etc.
    If this is of interest to you or you have any questions, please email me back and we can make arrangements to take the next step. Thanks for your time and your consideration. Have a pleasant day!
    Nicole Rees

    1. Hi Nicole, I wrote you a response through my email. Thank you for contacting me, I would be happy to write a review for your products. Regards, Karren

  2. Hi Karen - I think we met when I posted some of our barefoot sandal designs on Cafe Handmade. But it's been so long I'm not sure. I've lost touch with you (my bad)but I see that you're having fun with a new site doing reviews and all kinds of other things - how fun! We're in sort of a slump right now with our barefoot sandal business. It's not really beach wedding season so this is when we spend time creating new designs and researching new color combinations for Spring 2013 weddings. We've done a few giveaways and as soon as they're posted our traffic spikes for a few days but after that, it goes back down. Do you have any suggestions as to how we can market our sandals when its not the season for this type of wedding?

  3. So great to read about who you are and your family. Thank you for taking the time to make access to us your giveaways.
