All You Need is Love Project


Hello, sweet friends! Thank you to all who shared the love for my Kleenex Style post. If you haven’t stopped by to see how I styled my home with the cutest Kleenex boxes, take a look! It was loads of fun creating the concept. Also, I appreciate your insight into the Mommies vs. Non-Mommies debate. It’s so interesting to hear how both sides feel about each other.

I am so proud to finally unveil a project I have been working on since last year. The launching date is finally here! Inspired by love to write this blog, I am taking it a step further by introducing you to my All You Need is Love Project. And, yes, it will involve lots of hearts and YOU.

What is this project all about?

It’s a project to inspire more love on our planet. I like to nickname it my love revolution. I live my life with love and I want to use my blog to promote more lovin’. The Beatles’ message of love brought Mr. ShuGar and I together and it was the catalyst for the concept of my blog. Now, I want to take a more active role in creating a love movement that will hopefully spread across the interwebs. Will you join me?

I have more details on the main tab at the top of my blog under All You Need is Love. To give you a synopsis of how you can get involved, please read below:



  • Every Thursday, you can write about love (any form of it) on your blog. I will also suggest a topic at the end of Thursday’s All You Need is Love Project post if you are looking for any ideas. As I begin to develop a “love” following, I will be creating a blog hop using Linky Tools so that all us lovers can connect. Details on how to become part of the link party will be featured at the end of my Thursday Love post. Please make sure to use the All You Need is Love Project banner (found here) anywhere in your post if you participate in Thursday’s Love Day.
  • Email me if you have a love topic you’d like me to write about. I am always open to suggestions and I really like the idea of creating an open space for dialogue.
  • Share the love on social media! On Thursdays, I will post love questions on my twitter and facebook pages. I welcome all to join the convo and contribute to the discussion. It’s so much fun hearing about our own experiences with this crazy thing called love. Make sure to use the hashtag: #allyouneedisloveproject so that we can all be connected.
  • Contribute to a future blog post. At times, I will seek YOU out to share your thoughts on a Thursday Love topic. Your insight is so valuable to adding meaning to this love revolution. If you are interested, I will email or do a social media shout out for any one who wants to share in an upcoming blog post. Simply private message me a response and we can go from there. I’ll make sure to direct quote you and give you credit, along with a direct link to your blog & a short blog summary if you are a blogger.
  • Are words not your thing? Don’t fret! Instead of telling us, post pictures on instagram or twitter to show us your love. The pictures can be of anything or anyone that fills your heart on that day. Make sure to use the hashtag: #allyouneedisloveproject so we can enjoy your lovely photos.
  • Pin some love by adding your pins to the All You Need is Love Project board on Pinterest. Email me if you want to pin so that I can add you as a contributing pinner.
  • Be a permanent “love” supporter by using one of the All You Need is Love Project buttons on your sidebar. I have provided two sizes for your convenience (get buttons here). Feel free to use whichever one you fancy. This is a great way for others to discover this love revolution and also for your followers to know your dedication to love.

Now that you know what the All You Need is Love Project is all about, are you excited to join the love movement? Want to get started right away? Post a pic of something/someone you love today on instagram/twitter and use the hashtag #allyouneedisloveproject so we can all connect. I’ll be posting mine later today. Do you want to help me write my next All You Need is Love Project post for the following Thursday? Answer this question in the comments below or private message me a response. Let’s spread the love starting today till forever!

How do you know when you are in love? What does it feel like to you?

Finally, I need to acknowledge the designer who created the lovely All You Need is Love Project images. Her name is Santo Chen and I highly recommend her if you are looking for a designer to create anything for you. She is a doll to work with and her rates as so economical. I am so happy with what she created. She made the whole design process fun and I have her to thank for helping me launch this love project. Feel free to contact her directly at for info/rates.

Remember, all you need is love, love is all you need!

    Love this! Before I met my husband, I always asked others how you knew when you were in love. People always told me that you just know. So guess what? When I met my husband, I just knew! I loved him and I knew I was meant to spend the rest of my life with him.

    • Exactly! You feel it deep within. That’s how i felt. I am trying to find words to describe it and through this blog series I will attempt, but it’s challenging because it’s something so deep inside that just fills your soul. Thanks for the insight!

  • I want to be part of it! i will do my best next week to write something about love, empowerment with lots of color. Great idea amiga, this is going to be amazing.

    • Gracias, amiga! So happy you will join! You can join when you have time since I know we all have our busy bloggy schedules. This will be an on-going series so please share the love with your amigas any time. I’m so excited to see us all share love!

  • awww what a cute blog series! can’t wait to read more.

    • Thanks, Erika! So happy you like it! I’m so excited to see what comes from this project as we all try to spread the love around us. Thank you for being a love supporter =)

  • Amazing! I can’t wait for this, I will start next week! What a great idea Carmen, I’m looking forward to reading yours plus everyone else’s posts on Thursdays!

    Now to answer your question..
    As silly as it sounds, love feels like home to me. Being with my boyfriend I feel like I am at home.. the place of comfort, joy, warmth, and happiness. There is no other place I would rather be. When he gave me the feeling my ‘home’ gives me that is when I knew he was the right one for me. 🙂

    • This is great news, Kristy! I’m so happy you will join!

      So beautifully stated about love. Yes, that is exactly what I feel when I see Mr. ShuGar. A sense of comfort and warmth fill my heart. It’s not tangible, but can definitely be felt. You are both lucky to have each other and that lovely family of yours.

      Please share with anyone else who you think might be interested in this love movement. So excited to see it grow <3

    I’m so excited about this! I’m definitely taking part in the project — I’ve already placed the button on my sidebar and saved the banner in an empty post to fill in later.

    I had a lot of boyfriends when I was younger and, while I told several of them that I loved them, I really had very little concept of what love actually was, what it meant, or what it felt like. I’d always heard the phrase that “when you know, you know!” but it wasn’t until I met my husband that I actually discovered the truth of that phrase. Every time we made eye contact, I felt butterflies; my heart beat a little faster; and I found myself unable to think of any man except for him. I could say that the last time I fell in love was when I met my husband 12 1/2 years ago….but every time he tells me I’m beautiful, reminds me of what a good mommy I am, or even if he clears the dishwasher or picks up our son’s toys, I fall in love with him all over again. And that feeling feels like warmth starting in my belly and spreading its way up, down, and all around my body until I feel like I’ve been swimming in sunshine.

    • Yay! How awesome that you will join the love movement. I did see your sidebar and it looks super cute. Love it!

      Oh my gosh….I got tears in my eyes reading your answer. It’s so perfectly said and I can feel what love is through your words. I too dated some before Mr. ShuGar and I did say love twice before, but it didn’t even come close to the devotion and adoration I have for Mr. ShuGar. It’s at a whole other level. Plus, it’s the little things that make you love him even more. It’s not always a grand gesture, but the simplest signs of love and attention. I can’t wait to see Mr. ShuGar with our ShuGar baby. I heard you fall in love a million times more when you see your partner with your child. Lots and lots of butterflies!
