Blogger Q & A

Hi guys! I was challenged by Tanner Mann, author of The Life of a Womann, to answer a couple of questions that everyone always asks about blogging. I love having this blog because it is my own personal space that I can be who I am and talk about what I love without any judgment. I love the people I have met from blogging and all the other positive aspects that have come from it… you can read more below with an Q & A format.  🙂

Why did you start a blog? I started my blog as a creative outlet to showcase my fashion and lifestyle decisions all in one place. It was a hobby for me at first and but now with companies sending me products to post within a timely manner, it sort of became like a second job that I haven’t really started making money from yet. LOL everything takes time right?


Where do you get your writing inspiration from? My inspiration comes from a ton of different places, but I think what takes the cake is other bloggers. You learn that every blogger has their own style and you start to follow people (whether it be on Instagram, personal blog, Twitter, etc.) who inspire you. I have purchased a lot of items from the blogs of Caitlin Covington, Emily Gemma, Katey McFarlan, Alyson Haley, McKenna Bleu, just to name a few. These ladies have a fun, bright wardrobe that I love! They are very well-known bloggers who have figured out the game of blogging, and I always love reading their content and/or keeping up with them on social media.


What words do you have for those who are scared to start their blog? JUST DO IT. My advice for you is to come up with a catchy name, start creating your blog, write some content, take some photos, and when you are ready, hit publish. Just because you create a blog doesn’t mean you have to make it public right away… wait until YOU are ready. Also, I have learned the blogging community is a great resource. If you ever need anything or have any questions, most (can’t speak for all) are willing to help because at one time, they probably had the same question!


What are the ups and downs of having your own blog? The positive side of having a blog for me is all the people I am able to connect with that have the same interests as me. The blogging community is huge so you are able to meet a wide variety of women who want to see you succeed and inspire you throughout your journey. I also enjoy discovering new products I probably would’ve never heard of or bought without the company reaching out to me.  The downside would definitely be time management. I work a full-time job, manage my blog, while keeping up with house and dog mom duties and planning our wedding. I feel like I am tired ALL THE TIME. One more downside that I have just realized lately is always being on my phone. I feel like I live on it and some days when I get home from work, I just put it away and don’t look at it for a couple of hours because I just need that time to relax.


What other interests do you have besides your blog? Other interests besides blogging… hmm… I absolutely love shopping, going to the beach (I’m a Floridian, duh!), relaxing and watching Netflix, traveling with my fiancé, having brunch (+ mimosas) with my girls, planning our wedding, the list goes on….


Where do you hope your blog will take you in the future? One day, I hope to be blogging full-time. It’ll probably take a couple of years to actually get to that point, but I could definitely see myself doing it. People think being a full-time blogger is easy-peasy, but it is a 24/7 job. You are always on the clock, whether it be taking photos, answering emails, posting on social media + answering questions on social media, writing content, buying new products to test, traveling, etc.


I hope everyone has a great rest of their week and hope you have learned a thing or two about why I started this blog and keep it going. Love to all!

Xx, K

Victoria Emerson Design Collab Pt. 2

Hi everyone! Happy Monday – I hope everyone had a great weekend, I literally did NOTHING and it felt amazing. Saturday, my fiancé wasn’t feeling well and we spent the afternoon/night on the couch watching movies and I have to admit… I fell asleep at 9! It felt great, and today I have been cleaning & blogging all day. 🙂

I had the opportunity to collaborate with Victoria Emerson Designs and they outdid themselves yet again!! It doesn’t matter what items I pick, I know they will be the cutest, most stylish pieces. I received a variety of necklaces, bracelets, and pair of diamond studs. Below are a few photos of their designs and the links of the products – they have a great collection and you definitely need to check out of their website — HERE.

When you click on over to their website, it asks if you want to sign up for their mailing list and you will get a 30% off. Woooooo! I hope everyone has a great rest of their week!

Milk & Sass Macaroons

IMG_8558 4IMG_8560 3IMG_8561 3

Hi everyone! Happy Friday Eve — you are probably wondering what the heck I am about to blog about, and to be honest when Milk & Sass first contacted me, I was very intrigued to receive the product. I had no idea what I was about to get in the mail. I am so happy I collaborated with them though, because I received the CUTEST macaroon hairbrushes!!! They are perfect and compact so you can fit them in a small travel-size bag or even your handbag! The macaroons run $15 each and you can pick out of multiple pastel and bright colors which make them even more fun! The opposite side of the brush is a portable mirror where you can check and make sure everything looks good! Such a great travel product!! You should definitely check out their page and give them your support!!

Also – I wanted to point out, my favorite hair products right now are from It’s a 10!! After I get out of the shower, I put detangler in my hair, brush through it and then I spray the It’s a 10 Miracle Leave In Keratin Spray and comb through my hair, after I rub in the It’s a 10 Defrizzer which has worked wonders for my hair. These products are a little bit more pricey, but you get what you pay for. When I buy products for my hair – I usually say Quality over Quantity.

** This post was C/O Milk & Sass! Thank you so much!!! **

I hope everyone has a great Friday!!!

Xoxo, K

 

ShopStevie Adorable Peplum (Collab)

White Denim / Similar // Steve Madden Heels // Kate Spade Handbag

 You guys – the minute I laid my eyes on ShopStevie, I fell in love (Sorry Lane)! They have the cutest, trendiest clothes for a reasonable price. How it works is anyone can sign up to be a rep for these super cute clothes, so I had the opportunity to collaborate with Stacey, a rep for ShopStevie, and she is based out of Utah. Once I was able to speak with Stacey and learn all about this company, I became obsessed. If anyone loves their clothes just as much as me, you have the opportunity to host your own ShopStevie party – just get in touch with Stacey (I linked her store website above) and see how it works. Her instagram is also –> here.

Now for the peplum top, I received a Small and it fits perfectly, I love how it is super flowy and it has the small ruffles on the neckline and your wrists. Unfortunately, this blouse is sold out on her website – she actually had to order more after I posted this top on Instagram the first time. It is the perfect color for spring and you can wear it to work or out on date night. It is versatile either way.

So for the good news – Stacey was so sweet she wanted to offer all of you 15% off with the discount code FORTHELOVEOFCOFFEY. I just checked her website, and there are super hot items right now that usually go super fast. So don’t wait, shop now!

Yellow Dress / Similar / Similar // Nude Ankle Strap Heels

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a great weekend – as for mine, it was very laid back and relaxing with close friends and family which is exactly what I needed.

Make Me Chic was so kind to send me this adorable, bright yellow dress that would be the perfect Easter dress. I chose an XS and so glad I did, because it fit perfectly everywhere but was already a little too long. Can we just talk about these sleeves for a second?! The entire time I was shooting this outfit – in my head I was singing, “I like big sleeves and I cannot lie.” Hahahahah! It’s so true though – bell sleeves are so on trend right now and these sleeves specifically are such a huge statement for this dress. You’ll definitely be noticed! The shoes I styled with this dress are Sam Edelman, but I’m not sure if the heels were discontinued because I can’t find them anywhere to link for you so I linked a similar nude, ankle strap heel that were less than $25 from the Red Dress Boutique. Love a stylish, inexpensive find! The necklace I paired with the outfit is from Victoria Emerson Designs and I did not link it because I will be doing a blog post on them the first week of April so keep an eye out for that one. 🙂

That is all I have for you tonight, y’all. I hope everyone has a great week at work or on spring break… whatever the week brings. Much love!

Off-the-Shoulder Top // Steve Madden Heels // Denim

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week so far! It’s hump day so only TWO more work days left… yippeee!

I received this top from Romwe and while I love it, there are a couple things I would have done different when ordering with them. I would have read the size description for one, it is a one-size fits all but if you’re not an XS, it won’t fit. It was almost too small for me. Another thing, is that the color is more of a red, not a burgundy. Other than that, I absolutely love it. It is so cute for spring and summer with the off-the-shoulder and bell sleeves, which are both super trendy right now. This top would look adorable with denim pants (as in the picture) or a pair of shorts to make it more of a beachy look! 🙂 I also linked all the other products pictured too – these Steve Madden heels I bought from Amazon for less then $35. I know they were on sale too, so they may have gone up since then, but if not, grab yourself a pair. They are adorable and comfortable.

Tassel Kimono (Under $25)

FRAME Denim // Marc Fisher Wedges + Steve Madden Wedges // White Top // Tassel Kimono // Louis Vuitton Speedy


Hi guys! I am posting so late, and I am so sorry about that but I have been busy busy busy today. This whole week has been a bit crazy, but I wouldn’t trade it. Did you guys catch the finale of the Bachelor last night? Were you happy, sad, mad, jealous of Vanessa’s 4 CT Neil Lane diamond. HOLY COW is all I have to say. To be 100% honest, I am happy about the outcome of it because Nick and Vanessa deserve each other, they are both super emotional on that annoying level….. but hey! who am I to judge? I am just hoping my girl, Raven, finds love on Paradise. WOOO! I am so excited I get to watch her again!

Anyways, off the topic of The Bachelor… this kimono is everything, y’all! I linked the right one above, it is from Target. It also comes in white which is just as cute. I actually bought the M/L because 1) the XS/S was sold out, and 2) I tried it on and I kind of liked how roomy and long it was! The size is your preference on however you want it to fit.

I hope everyone has a great week! I have a lot of new and fun collaborations coming for you all. I can’t wait until they come in. YAY!

Romper, Maxi Dress // Marc Fisher Adalyn

Happy Sunday, everyone! I really didn’t do much this weekend and it was absolutely wonderful. I have been needing a weekend like this for a while just to get caught up with my house. My fiancé and I cleaned all day today and now my house is picture perfect… kidding, my house will never can be perfect with my two fur babies.

This is one of my favorite dresses…I mean rompers? or both!! Perfect for a summer vacation or having drinks by the beach with the girls. I’m obsessed with the floral pattern and the low back! I bought it from Forever 21 and it was less than $30. I saw it hanging up on the wall and knew I had to have it. I linked all of the details above so you will be able to shop the link 🙂

Have a great week everyone!

Olive Jumpsuit // Sam Edelman Heels // Tory Burch Wristlet

Hi guys! Happy Wednesday aka Hump Day! I am snuggled up on the couch drinking wine, watching How I Met Your Mother (my guilty pleasure, thx Tanner!!) and just finished eating my lettuce wraps. NomNom! I hope your night is going just as well!

This olive jumpsuit is by GB by Gianni Bini from Dillards and it fits like a glove! My friend made me try it on, even though I didn’t want too because I knew if I fit well I would fall in love. Well guys… I fell in love and bought it. The slide slits make it even more edgy and sassy. I linked all of the products above so you can shop from those links. Don’t forget on Instagram you can screenshot my photos and if you have the Liketoknow.It app, all the deets will pop up so you don’t have to receive those emails.

I hope everyone has a great rest of your week! My fiancé and I are taking engagement photos on Friday and I am STOKED!!! 🙂

Mint Green Mini Skirt (Similar) / Similar / White Chiffon Top / Marc Fisher Adalyne / Kendra Scott Necklace / Light Pink Handbag

Happy Sunday, friends! I hope everyone had a fab weekend – my Saturday was completely booked. I picked up my wedding dress (FINALLY, I’ve been waiting since September!) and then I went to the little sis’ pageant which she WON!! Now she will be competing for Miss. Florida Outstanding Teen in Lakeland, FL. Woo! So excited for her!

This Mint Green mini skirt I found at Forever21, and honestly I have been waiting to post this outfit because I can not find it anywhere on the website and I have been looking for a month since I bought it. I ended up linking two similar skirts that I thought were equally cute, so I am sorry I couldn’t find the exact one. I am obsessed with this look because it is so perfect for Spring – especially Florida’s spring where it is 80 degrees.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week – my fiancé and I are taking our engagement photos this Friday and I am so excited!! 🙂 Oh and don’t forget Woman Tell All on Bachelor is on tomorrow!! WOO!!
