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!

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!!! 🙂

Green Maxi Skirt / White Crop Top / Pink Kendra Scott Drop Earrings / Tory Burch Miller Sandals / Valentino Bag (Similar)

Hi everyone! Happy Monday! Who’s ready for the Bachelor tonight?! It is getting SO close to the end, I am wondering who is going to win. I know it’s not going to be Corinne because I am pretty sure no one would ever watch the Bachelor series again if she won. LOL So who do you think will win? Are you a Raven fan or a Vanessa fan? I won’t tell you who I choose yet… I’m going to wait until next week!

This green skirt has SPRING written all over it!! It is so comfortable and would be the perfect look for a shopping trip or grabbing drinks by the beach! I received this maxi from SheIn and I was absolutely thrilled when got it – the fit was amazing and matched very true to size from the website which I was happy about. The best part is this skirt is under $26 – I have linked everything right under the pictures so you can get all the details there.

I hope everyone has a great week! 🙂

looooove

Sweater // Destroyed Jeans // Tory Burch Handbag // Steve Madden Heels


Happy Sunday, friends! I hope everyone is staying safe + dry in this stormy Florida weather. I have literally done nothing except relax, blog, and watch Netflix. It’s been nice since I was a busy little bee yesterday wedding planning. This cozy red sweater is perfect for playing dress up or a snuggly night in. Thank you MakeMeChic for the collaboration. Check them out for super trendy clothes for a reasonable price. I don’t have much to say today, but I do want you to keep an eye out for a fun little blog post this week. Creating this post made me realize why I started blogging in the first place…. for my LOVE of writing ❤ I hope everyone has a great week!

Comfiest Oversized White Sweater under $20

dsc_6831dsc_6834dsc_6836dsc_6839dsc_6840dsc_6843dsc_6853

White Sweater | Denim | Kate Spade | Booties


Hellllo friends! I was so excited when this sweater finally came in… it was a little big because it’s a one-size fits all *insert eye roll*. I had to wash it and it shrank a teeny, tiny bit, but now it is the perfect “oversized” sweater. I will definitely be needing it for this cold weather we have been having in Florida… LOL I love the material of this sweater as well, it’s very soft and comfortable, not itchy at all which is one of the reasons I am always skeptical about buying sweaters online. I like being able to feel the material before I spend money on the item.

This pair of denim was a lucky find, I was at Ross on one of my lunch breaks and found these $15 pair of jeans, they actually fit perfect, which is a shocker for jeans. 🙂 I usually just wear the same brand over and over again.

I don’t know if I have put these booties on my blog yet, but y’all, they are the perfect color, perfect style, perfect fit, perfect comfort. I cannot say enough good things about these shoes. I am so so happy I purchased them. They will be in my closet for a very long time….. (sorry mom!!!) LOL She always likes to steal my clothes/shoes. 😛 BTW, I couldn’t find the correct link above for these booties, but they are from Express!! Don’t forget to follow my insta – @kristinncoffey.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week. Love you all!

Green Cold Shoulder Sweater — MakeMeChic Collab

Happy Halloweeeeeen, friends!

 

dsc_4094dsc_4122dsc_4108dsc_4104dsc_4102dsc_4125dsc_4111

Green Asymmetric Cold Shoulder Sweater // Dark Denim // Sam Edelman Pumps // Dual Stone Ring – 1/2 off right now

I partnered with MakeMeChic for this blog post, and they were sweet enough to send me this adorable sweater! I am obsessing over it right now, and have worn it multiple times. I’m really digging the asymmetrical one cold shoulder style, makes the sweater sexy and different imo. The material is actually really soft and not itchy at all. I’m always worried when I purchase or receive sweaters from online, because if I don’t like the material, you will not catch me wearing it.

Anyways, I hope everyone had a great weekend. It was a relaxing one for my fiancé and I which was nice 🙂 we watched the Gators kick Georgia’s butt and went to a Halloween party Saturday night as The Purge. My first Halloween in 24 years that I dressed up as something scary. Lol! Today we carved aka painted pumpkins, which might I add I enjoy 100% more!!!!
