My dear readers, I am filled with pleasure, pride, and gratitude to announce that...
I have over 100 followers!Having been blogging for just a year, with very limited funds/time and a crappy camera, and from my little place in the middle of nowhere, I can't even tell you how much this means to me!
Now whenever my family members [rather snarkily] ask, "What's the point of this 'blogging' stuff?" I tell them, "Look at all the friends I'm making! Look at all the people who care about what I share with them, and who share with me in return! The coolest part? I have a bunch of followers from other countries! direct connections with special people I never would have met any other way!"
And who knows the wonderful places it'll go from here? Social networking, FTW! So I'm glad to just keep on keeping on: posting my blog posts, putting photos up on Instagram (@spritzy88), and sharing cool stuff on my Facebook page (link at right). And this kind of feedback--100+ followers--makes the sharing even more fun.
So, my mom (who has been by far my staunchest supporter) took me out to lunch to celebrate my 100 followers. :) Here's the outfit I wore that day, incorporating a blouse she gave me to sort of honor her in return:
This is also the debut of my patterned pants from H&M. :) I was soooo excited to find a pair of patterned pants that I actually like and will be able to style with my pre-existing wardrobe. And they're comfy, too.
As I'm posting these photos, I'm seeing the effects of Instagram and Pinterest and magazine subscriptions hahaha...
What I mean is that this is *gasp* a TRENDY outfit.
Patterned cropped pants, sexy statement shoes, a sheer hi-lo blouse, a cropped tuxedo jacket, burgundy lipstick, and even my bangs are all "IN" right now.
Except for my Rolex and my eyes (lol), I don't think I'm wearing anything NOT trendy.
These photos were taken in the center square of a city next to my hometown. Actually, the suburbs where I live are all kinda mushed together, sooo it's all kinda the same place, but I digress; the point is that the fountain and gazebo (which you've already seen) are lovely, annnnnnd the following photos showcase my favorite thing about this square:
The PIANO SIDEWALK.
And with that, dear readers, this post draws to its end. :) I'll put one more great big THANK YOU out there, throw out a quick Rundown, and see you later!
