Stylish Blogger Award

Monday, March 28, 2011

Hi everyone!! I feel like such a terrible blogger lately; I haven't posted in over a week.... eeeks! In my defense I went on a vacation to Scottsdale, AZ for some spring training baseball. A weird fact about me, I love baseball. My husband got me into it when we met, and I love baseball over all other sports (Probably because it is the only one I understand). It was such great weather in AZ, and they have such a great selection of crappy food to eat! (Waffle House and Dunkin' Donuts were the most frequented). However, now that I am back in action I feel bad that I have not posted a new blog entry. I do not have a new outfit post, but I have a fun little exercise if you wanna join in!!

Kylee of 2Anchor sent me some love with a "Stylish Blogger Award"!! Thank you so much Kylee for stopping by and appreciating my 'lil hobby! I really love blogging and I love the people who share the same passions as I do! You guys are all amazing and I feel so blessed to be in the club (or at least I think I'm in the club) :D

The Rules for the blogger award are as follows:
  •  Thank and link back to the person that gave you this award.
  •  Share 7 things about yourself.
  •  Award 7 recently discovered great bloggers. Contact and tell them.

7 Things About Me...

1. I have been going to yard/garage sales with my mom since I was born. Now I have just made the transition to Thrift stores and I don't have to wait until Saturday to shop :)

2.  I have wanted to be a fashion designer since I was 10, I'm still hanging onto the dream!

3. Everyone on my father's side of the family is an artist, I am the only one who is interested in fashion.

4. I opted for a degree in Fashion Marketing because I thought it would be more marketable than Fashion Design. I am pretty sure I made the right decision, even though I don't work in fashion currently.

5. I am planning on pursuing costume design at some point in my life, I think I could be good at it.

6. I have a ridiculously hard time spending over $30 on one single item, including shoes.

7.  As a child my mother instilled a rule in me, "You have to love it, or you can't have it." To this day I live by this motto and if I do not love something I will not allow myself to buy it. I have turned my Husband and friends onto this and for the most part, they abide by it :) It's a good rule and alleviates most buyers remorse.

And now to pass it off...

Since I started blogging (about three months ago), I have found some really great people, who have really great blogs!  If you haven't been to their sites, please check them out!

Sounds like creativity is in your blood. I always wanted to be a designer, and I hope I can at least learn to sew more for myself. Working in fashion would be my ultimate dream. I have a very hard time spending money on things too. I feel like the only thing I spend a lot on is my work shoes, and they never cost more than $40. Thank you for the award!
