Hey Guys! I’m FINALLY back to writing posts! I thought that I’d have more time to get stuff done when I graduated college, BUT NOPE. Who knew unemployment would be this busy LOL. A lot has happened and is currently happening! I started a youtube channel, check it out if you want! I want to try to divide my time between videos and blog posts because I love both and they’re equally time-consuming, honestly.
First and foremost: I was freaking featured in the Narcity article, “31 Tampa Girls Who Are Absolutely Killing It On Instagram Right Now.” I’m literally in the cover photo! *internally crying and screaming* Not to mention that I gained like 200 followers from that article alone, which like, wtf!? So cool! *more crying*
On the downside, my blog was down for several weeks because I accidentally let the domain expire and then lost everything and had to get it restored from a back-up from February. So, I forever lost some of my blog posts from the past 2 months, which sucked. Now, I know how to properly back-up my site and save my blog posts. It was definitely a learning experience that I won’t be repeating…
I’m also currently working on a potential business venture that may or may not involve creating content and running brands’ Instagrams. Hoping it works out, but it’s still in the fetus stage, so I’m holding my breath on that one.
Something that I’m excited about is that I’m now working with a photographer to up my fashion blogging game! She is SO sweet and nice and I definitely recommend her if you’re in the Tampa area because she goes above and beyond! Check her out: Audra Nicole Photography. Or @audranicole_photography on IG. (Not sponsored, just love her and her work!)
Other cool things happening in list form: I’ve been networking with awesome local bloggers who are all badass women. I’m redoing my childhood room so that it’s more adult/feminine/chic (youtube video coming on that). I’m also diving into the world of bullet journaling harder than before (videos coming on that as well).
Something that I’m actually pretty proud of is coming out of my shell on Instagram stories! Before I would over-analyze my every word and I felt like I came across as super annoying—which led me to delete all my videos or not post them. NOW, I’m embracing who I am and not worrying about what people will think of my personality. I figure that if someone really doesn’t like me or my page, then they’ll just unfollow me so it’s not a big deal! I’m also proud of the “quality” of my content. I’ve gotten so much positive feedback on that aspect of my page and I could NOT be happier.
OKAY. That was a lot of rambling. On to the outfit!
I’m wearing a super cute red Abercrombie striped dress (got it on $ale) with a navy and white striped hair bow from American Eagle. I just paired the look with some nude wedges that I bought forever ago, so I’ll link a similar pair below! Same deal with the Kate Spade bag–bought it forever ago, but I’ll link a similar style if I can’t find the original! This outfit is also great for the fourth of July, which is coming up! I want to do an entire post on potential outfits for the 4th. Crossing my fingers that I get that up soon!
