3 Sales Every Fashionista Needs to be Shopping

Featured Image (3)

One of my biggest struggles in adulthood is coming to terms with the face that I’ve got RLS (real life sh*t) to pay for and I’ve had to curb my appetite for shopping. The days of putting it on the credit card my mom paid for are long gone, but my need for clothes, shoes, and purses has probably gotten worse. In order to fulfill my need to shop, I decided I had to become a REAL shopper. In my opinion, that means not impulse buying items you know you can’t afford, but patiently waiting for a coupon in the mail or the item to go on sale. Let me tell yall, it’s hard sometimes, but I feel so accomplished when I get things at discounted prices. On a daily basis, I probably get at least 10 emails about specials or sales, and there are currently 3 sales that are too good not to share!

For those that don’t know, I am a city girl through and through. I live attached to my cell phone, need restaurants that deliver within a 5 mile radius, and I literally felt like a million bucks the first time I rode the subway in NYC. So I’m sure you can all imagine the anxiety I felt once our plane tickets were booked and I realized for the first time in life I was going to go on vacation without a pair of heels. I’m happy to report this city girl is now a semi-expert on surviving in the country! (more…)

3 Ugly Truths About Blogging

Featured Image (6)

Lately I’ve had a lot of friends ask me about my blogging journey and if I would recommend that they start a blog. I’m always super excited to be asked my opinion on the matter and typically suggest that my friends get started right away. However, though my journey has been short compared to others, I’ve definitely leaned a lot in the past 8-9 months. While I do believe that if you are passionate about something you can probably make a blog about it, there are some ugly truths about blogging that I don’t think are often discussed.
