Guest Post and Urban Outfitters Giveaway from The Bradleys (CLOSED)

Happy Friday friends! Today I want to introduce you to my featured sponsor of the month Elizabeth from The Bradleys. Her lovely space of the internet includes inspirational posts and posts about her amazing family. Make sure and stop by her blog after reading her post and don't forget to enter the giveaway at the end (;

NAME: Elizabeth Kelsey Bradley
AGE:  29
HOMETOWN: Not sure I have lived in too many places!! 
What are five words to describe you? 
Dreamer, thinker, unorganized, oversensitive, autodidact

How would you describe your personal style? Where do you get inspiration?
My style, although edgy at times, is pretty conservative. It's mainly vintage inspired, as I used to own a vintage store and most of the movies I watch are older. I like to look at Dearest Lou, Modern Modest Beauty, and Maie Dae for style inspiration, as well as Bust Magazine. 
Why did you decide to start blogging? What do you blog about?
I started The Bradleys rather recently, but have been a 'pro blogger' on other sites for about 2 years now. I wanted a quiet place online to reflect about the blessings in my family life, as opposed to my career. I also found the 'mom blogging' community to be very inspirational and supportive, and I wanted to be a part of it! It also proved to be a great way to learn about Christianity and LDS, as well as other faiths that intrigue me. 

How did you name your blog?
We named it after our surname. 
What’s the most difficult thing about being a mother? What is the most rewarding?
The most challenging thing is balancing time and attention. I want to be totally present as a mum but because I am working often, and homeschooling and running a house, my attention is all over the place. 
What are three things you want to accomplish by the end of this year?
To help my husband work from home instead of at a 9 to 5, to have moved to Scotland, and to be pregnant with the next Bradley baby! 
They are such a cute family, don't you think? Elizabeth is giving you all the chance to win a $30 gift card to Urban Outfitters!
