When I first considered writing a blog I thought about the visuals of my site, outfits and other people’s perception of me. As I actively participate in creating a blog, I am far more interested in the content than anything else. I mean yes I want for my blog to be appealing, for people to appreciate my uniqueness, and my ability to express myself through my personal style. But I am surprising immersed in the content I create; to be able to articulate and create an authentic ability to connect with and inspire people.
Creating content that is well-organized, maintains a flow, and is relative to your readers can be hard especially for a beginner blogger. And in all honesty it can be draining at times, but I stuck in there like a champ and will come out of this week a better and more self-aware person. Hope you enjoy a glimpse at some of my week:
I created a Book List:
All of the books on my list are in some way related to the fashion industry, entrepreneurship, and girl power in general! I would love to add some type of daily devotional books also, so if you know of any please let me know.
Lean In– Nell Scovell and Sheryl Sandberg
Girl Boss– Sophia Amoruso
Closer– Scott Schuman
I attended Table Talk with Kris:
Last Saturday I attended Table Talk with Kristiahna and enjoyed myself tremendously. Kristiahna also known as Kris created an open dialogue between the panelists made up of successful business women/entrepreneurs and ladies in attendance. We came together to network, enjoy each other’s company, discuss everyday issues, be inspired by one another’s stories and reach our highest potential. Entry to the event was complementary and included a small brunch, vender shops, and great panelists that shed light on several topics and real life situations. I met a lot of great ladies and gained guidance on allowing yourself to be transparent in order to impact the lives of others, the importance of simplifying your brand and counteracting negative thoughts among much more. You can find out more information about Kris’s next event here.
I met this doll at the event, Doni Brown stylist, fashion blogger, and panelist of Table Talk with Kris. She is so sweet and so down to earth!
I tried out a new restaurant:
I went to Urban Taco off McKinney Avenue in Dallas for the first time a week or so ago to celebrate a promotion for a co-worker, but because it was so many of us and it was happy hour it felt rushed. But I did like the ambiance, location and the tacos so after the table talk event I went back for a full on experience. It’s not your typical Mexican style restaurant, but they have a variety of street style tacos and their house margaritas on the rocks are amazing! Don’t go expecting chips and queso though; their queso is pan-fried cheese, but the variety of salsa makes up for it. Kinda. Sorta. Well not really, because Texas people loooove queso, but the huge patio and drink specials definitely make up for it!
Co-Ord + Fringe:
My co-ord set came from Hollister. I snagged it over the holiday season while on sale. Yes I shop sale and yes I buy things months in advance for no apparent reason. Guilty as charged! And needless to say this particular co-ord is no longer in stock, but I did find some awesome co-ords with similar colors or style here, here, and here. I paired it with my favorite Go Jane fringe chunky wedge and a dainty little headband from Nasty Gal.
