Weird Purses You Must Have

I'm obsessed with purses. It's getting to be quite a problem. I could easily spend hundreds on a purse, but won't spend over $40 on a sweater. On my hunt for different purses I've found quite a few that I need to add to my collection. I love how different these are, and are also perfect conversation starters. Here are some of my favorites!

Betsey Johnson's Ice Cream Bag (I've actually purchased this one, I'm in love)

Betsey Johnson's Apple Pie Purse

Judith Leiber's Beehive Clutch (all of her clutches are AMAZING)

Fortune Cookie Coin Purses

 Kate Spade Purses (She always has such creative bags!)

Kate Spade's book clutches are also SO adorable! They inspired me to try and DIY my own...lets just say I'm still working on it...

Do you love these totally cute bags?

Weekly Target Appreciation Post

Ok friends, I have a confession...I'm obsessed with Target. Well, I guess you already knew that...but saying it out loud is the first step to recovery right?

I try to go to Target at least once a week. Shopping at Target after a long day of work with a Starbucks in hand can cure just about any problem...I'm sure of it. On these weekly Target trips I think, ponder, and retail therapy myself into a happy Target drunkenness. I head home with a bag filled with things I don't need and a huge smile on my face. (wow I really do have a problem) Well friends, I think this will be my first Target Appreciation Post where I will list all the wonderful magical things I bought at Target for the week. I'm actually quite proud and only bought 2 items, but might I say they both are pretty great.

First up, a doughnut sweater. I mean...why wouldn't you want a doughnut sweater? This was priced at $22.99

The other item...or should I say items...I bought were mini party hats from the Oh Joy! collection. ($5 for a pack of 8 hats) They are so cute and fit perfectly on my little head. Be ready friends, on my next birthday I'm breaking these suckers out for a night on the town! 

That's all for this week! Let me know if you like my Weekly Target Appreciation Posts...or if I should actually find something interesting to blog about.

How to get more traffic on your blog

As a new blogger my biggest question is, "how do I get people to read my blog?"..."is anyone going to like my blog?"..."oh wow how did I get 20 views!?...oh...that was all just me"...

Well my friends, I did a little internet search on how to get more traffic to your blog, and I found some good advice. Here are some of my favorites...

  1. Be timeless...write things that could be read a year from now.
  2. Write short posts, nobody likes to read novels from people they don't know
  3. Be snarky (i love that word)
  4. Coin a term or two
  5. Write about blogging (I guess that's what I'm doing now?)
  6. Don't be boring
  7. Dress your blog as well as you would dress for a meeting
  8. Don't blog about you cat, boyfriend, and kids (oops...already broke that rule...)
  9. Post things people want to read
And most importantly...

Don't blog to be famous. Don't blog to get views. Blog for yourself, and people will read it.

Happy Blogging!

Allow myself to introduce...myself.

Well hello there! And thank you for stumbling across my little space on the internet. I guess I started this little blog because I read so many great fashion/lifestyle blogs and watch so many YouTube beauty videos that inspire me daily. These bloggers before me have inspired me and so many other girls, that I would love to give back in some small tiny way. So I'm going to give this whole blogging thing a try. Here I will post about my daily life, fashion trends I love, fashion trends I hate, my ups, my downs, my heartbreaks, and my accomplishments. Life can get pretty crazy, so lets just take it a day at a time and do this together. I can't wait to share my life with you.

Here's a little more about me...

Things I like...Disneyland, cats, coffee, large sweaters, and going to concerts.

Things I don't like...spiders, heights, and clowns.

This is me...

And this is my cat...
