The Real Deal about Blogging

It occurred to me this morning when my boyfriend’s mom showed me an article she found called “The Truth About Blogging” that all anyone wants to know when they start a blog is, “how do I become successful” “how do I get noticed” “how can I get readers” “when and how can I have things sent to me for free.”

Thousands of people read this article, and you can read it too right HERE, (I don’t condone some of the language) I am assuming because they wanted to know the secret potion on blogging. There must be an easier way, there must be a secret equation that I can apply  to the backend of my site to ensure that I get thousands of views on each post and to make sure I have no bad days on my blog. Guess what I realized when I thought about that very thing myself? THERE IS! Do you want to know what it is?!?!….

EVERYTHING ON MY XMAS BUCKET LIST!

Jeans: Charlotte Russe
Jacket: Amazon Fashion
Shirt: Forever 21
Setting: Heirloom Market, Old Wethersfield CT

Happy last day of November everyone! I don’t know about you, but I cannot believe it’s going to be December and that 2018 is already almost OVER!

This year, I made a Christmastime bucketlist that I thought I would share with you all, because I know it’s hard to think of things you want to do before it’s all over. I know personally, Christmas usually comes and goes and I’ve barely watched one Christmas movie or even have seen the lights in my own town…how sad?! That’s why this year, before Thanksgiving, I sat down with my cute little Kate Spade notebook and really thought about what I wanted to do!

I have a ton to be thankful for this year, like every year! Thanksgiving is a fabulous time to reflect on your accomplishments, your life, family and friends because it is close to the end of the year, but not so close that your head is clogged with all of that Christmas/New Years mombo jombo. New Years seems like almost too much pressure to either say a resolution or look back at your fondest memory from the year. That’s why, this Thanksgiving, that’s what I’ll be doing.

I thought I might just jump right in and list what I am thankful for most this year:

Commuting, working, pursuing, surviving

DSC_0108Okay so I may have had a little breakdown in my car this afternoon, but here we are–I am relaxing and writing a post, so I’m thriving (kinda).

Honestly, I think I deserve a breakdown, though. I am a college grad working three jobs just to stay afloat, follow my passion and make that moulaaaaa. You’d have a mental breakdown too (:

Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change my life for the world, but sometimes I need a GOOD cry. I was leaving my second job, on my way to my third, realized I was about to run out of gas and wouldn’t have time to get any for the next two days because of my schedule. Hello, breakdown!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying this FALL weekend that we are having, I know I am!

I had a really exciting day yesterday, and I would like to share the details of it with you.

I was nicely invited to cover this year’s Styleweek Northeast as press, so of course I had to go to not only show my support of these amazing local, New England designers, but also to take note and share my experience along with the designs I saw!

Let’s get right into it, shall we?

Fall Jackets + Hello!

IMG_0692.JPG

Hi everyone!! It’s been a couple weeks since I last wrote a blog post and I think that’s because I am having a bit of an idea block lately. I have some ideas for blogs that I want to execute but now is not the time, so that leaves me like (……).

Anyways, the last time I blogged it was hot, today it’s cold. Somehow in a couple of weeks it went from Summer to Fall and honestly, I am kind of okay with it! I thought I’d check in today to say what’s up and that I am already stocking up on my fall jackets.

My Most + Least Worn Items in my Closet

IMG_0419.jpg

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying this summer weekend—they are numbered for sure!

Today I wanted to write a cool post that I think a lot of you will be interested in reading—My Most and Least Worn Items in my Closet! I think we can all identify with the fact that our closets (those beasts) are FILLED and with stuff that we automatically go to and thennnnn there’s the stuff that we almost never wear…but can’t get rid of!

Let’s dive right in! I broke it down to categories: my most and least worn: skirt, dress, pair of shorts, shirt, jacket, shoe, purse and earring! There are obviously more shirts that I wear a lot and more pants, but looking at my closet in the moment today, this is what I pulled!

One Year Serious Blog-iversary

Serious blog-iversary. What’s that?

Today is August 24 and it’s my one year serious blog-iversary! I’ve owned and operated my blog for four (almost 5) years now BUT I did not keep up with it or write as much OR be half as serious as I have been with it this past year.

I am so grateful that something clicked in my head a year ago that this blog could actually be the most amazing hobby, creative release and past time in my life…it’s been the most fabulous and fun journey.
