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.  🙂

DSC_2801

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!

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!

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.

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!!

Colorful Spring Maxi

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! 🙂

P.S. I love JORD + $100 Gift Card Giveaway

Hoooooray! Happy Hump Day! I hope everyone is having a fantastic week.

Today’s blog post is dedicated to JORD watches and their wonderful kindness for sending me a watch to show all of you. When they originally showed me all of their unique watches, I knew exactly which one I wanted because it really showed my personal style. It’s in their women’s watch collection and it is the Zebrawood and Champagne.

They also have a mens watch collection that is just as nice, I have actually been eyeing one that I would love to get for my fiancé. These watches are great for any gift – they are hand crafted wood that you can also get personalized. Such a sweet and thoughtful gift for anyone of any age. JORD ships for FREE anywhere in the world. The watches are very durable and have such a perfect fit whether you have a tiny wrist like me or a bigger wrist. That is always one of my major problems is that I can never find bracelets or watches to fit right because of my tiny 5 1/2 inch wrist, but with JORD watches, you don’t have to worry about that.

What makes the giveaway even greater is that for every other person who enters and doesn’t win, they still receive a $25 gift card for JORD.

Watch Gift Ideas

Victoria Emerson Design Collab

Hi everyone! I am SO SO SO excited about this blog post today. I teamed up with Victoria Emerson Design to show you all of their wonderful accessories. Prior to them contacting me, I’m going to be honest I had never heard of them. After I started researching and stalking their Instagram and website, I fell in love with their products. When I picked out a couple of items and received them in the mail, I grew to love them even more. They are such stylish, affordable pieces that you can wear to a casual beach day or dress them up for a night out with the girls. I love accessories where you can mix and match depending on what you are wearing. Versatile pieces are my jam, y’all! 🙂

So I am sure you’re wondering what pieces I picked out? I will tell you one thing, deciding which ones I wanted was the hardest decision EVER! Victoria Emerson is currently promoting their wrap bracelets and boho cuffs, so I picked out one of each. They have multiple styles and colors of all of their products (that was my problem), you can’t go wrong with any of them. Here are some of the ones I received… 🙂
