Well there it is. I’ve said it. FULL TIME BLOGGER. This transition took place a few months ago but I was on the fence when I would officially tell you all.

I love scrolling through Instagram and getting inspired by other fashion lovers. For so long I’ve wanted to share my great finds, my great outfits with others, but so much has held me back.
