“Do you know what today is? It’s my Blog-a-Versary” A year in review….

***WARNING- This Post is All involved***

A look back:

One year ago today, I worried about rather my take on fashion would be accepted in the blogger world… 365 days, 160+ followers and 200 plus likes later, it has been! I did not realize that blogging would consume as much time as it has and I think that we all can agree it’s a 2nd JOB!!! 0.o But nothing much matters  when you’re doing something you love! I was late for work the other day because I needed to finish a blog post! LOL For the most part blogging comes first! ANNNNDDD The thrill is NOT gone! I’m just as excited to post new and different looks as I was last year! Ready to see what my blogger made friends will have to say!! The positive feedback is EVERYTHING to me!
The blogosphere is a place where I feel the most comfortable thinking outside the box!  I put looks on display and just as other bloggers inspire me, it turns out that I inspire others!!! WHO KNEW! People get me!
I’ve already spoke on thinking outside the box, but I feel like the biggest difference between now is my growth in confidence. I mean I would put circles, stripes, plaid and flowers together if I could find a way! Lol My fashion sense is really no longer about fashion but it’s a form of expression that varies from day to day! I learned the following about myself …I AM NOT SCARED! ßThis is something that I plan to take with me throughout life! Why because I’m confident enough to make it right even if it may be wrong… According to the stories my folks (family, depends on what part of the country you in) tell, I’ve always been like this!  I feel like I’m a step closer to my dreams and this is a practice run. 
I’m in a Celebratory mood so my look of the day is FUN… Check me out…..

I am oh so proud of you. You are so happy sharing your love for self expression with people around the world. Nothing about this surprises tho...why??? Because I knew you would be great even before you thought about it. None-the-less, you have taken this thrifting, styling, and blogging by the tale and have remainded in control of evolving you. As greatness and opportunity continue to pay you a visit, feel free to invite them in for a sit down and a nice glass of wine, I know you will enjoy their company. Love yea Bunches and keep being FAB (Foxy and Brave)!! :)
