Have you seen the latest Bridal Collection from Ruche - To Have And To Hold? This is what you're missing... I decided a long time ago that when I do get married, my dress will be pretty non-traditional, it probably won't even be white. My boyfriend and I have been together for a long time. I even joke that in some states we are married. I've even heard my parents refer to him to others as my "husband". I just... Read more →

First off, I want to thank you for the comments left in yesterday's post. I know it was a little wordy but the encouragement left on the blog and my Facebook is *SO* greatly appreciated! ♥♥♥ I'm happy to have more stud earrings back in the shop. I have a couple more I would like to add but the colors are kind of hard to photograph and I can't quite get it to match on Photoshop so I may just... Read more →

Closing (The Shop)

It is with a weight being lifted off my shoulders that I write this post. This decision was a couple of months in the making. I decided that I will be closing the shop I will continue to sell my jewelry on Etsy and I'm keeping the domain (I'm not stupid!). It has become clear to me that I wanted to try something a little different but chose the wrong time to do it. Not to say that I... Read more →

I didn't think this day would come...

"This day" being Friday that is, this week was incredibly SLOW for me. I took this picture the other day during my lunch break on the way to an unplanned trip to Ann Taylor Loft. I came back with TWO new outfits. I needed pants. Badly. The drama with my camera continues. :( I contacted Support at Canon and they suggested I try a couple of things to see if it would kickstart the camera. Still no luck. They offered... Read more →

I'm so excited to share my first dress from Ruche! I've admired their clothes and lookbooks for so long. I came across a dress I couldn't turn away from. Flamenco Dancing Curvy Plus Dress I wasn't too crazy about the kind of zipper they use in the back (it's really stiff) but overall I love this dress. The colors are lighter than what I would usually wear but not too far out of my comfort zone. It's a great length,... Read more →

Keep Blogging Fun Shall We?

I'm a member of the Etsy Blogger Team and some of the members are new to blogging and they don't know where to start or are afraid. Some are borderline freaking out about it. What do I write about? How much should I write? How do I get people to read my blog? Why am I not getting comments? What should I use for a blog? Gaaaaah!!!!! I'm hoping that if I share what I get out of this blog,...

Last July I thought I'd try out swapping blog ads with other neat websites. It was pretty fun minus some minor frustrations from one person who was not happy about where their ad appeared. Really? It's FREE!!!! That turned me off a little bit but I'm over it now and would like to try it again in April. I have to lay down some rules: Blog Ad Swap Rules #1 Ads must be linked to a blog #2 You must... Read more →
