While I was taking my blog break I thought about how my blog is different. We can often get zapped into comparing our lives to others but I wanted to write about what makes my blog different and that it is ok! Here are a few things that when comparing my blog to some of the bigger names makes mine different.
...I don't post daily. Really, y'all, posting can be a struggle. I feel awkward taking fashion pictures so coming up with ideas is hard and sometimes living life is more important than taking 20 minutes to write a post.
...As much as I love Kate Spade I hate the beau bag. I love bows as much as the next girl and love all of my Kate Spade items but the beau bag is not something I would ever save up for or ask for as a gift. I mean the blush color and the all black are ok if someone wants to give me a $400 bag as a gift but I would much rather have something else.
...I do not have sponsors. Yep, this is a freetime deal. Would I love to receive free stuff, yes and I have had offers and I only present items I think are interesting to y'all and I love. I mean, the shirt I received from the Fraternity Collection is one of my favorites and I absolutely love it so of course I do not mind sharing about it but if you want me to talk about an item or store that I have never gone in I am going to tell you no. I only want to share things I actually believe in.
....I have only bought J.Crew and Lilly clothing items during major sales (New Year's Cheer, Warehouse Sales, Endless Summer). Really, I have never purchased anything from J.Crew at full price. I am excited for the Lilly sale that starts this morning though and I hope everyone acts like adults. Everything is discounted by a lot so be patient and know that high volume is expected.
...I have student loans (see point above). This means that my budget for clothing is small and I tend to splurge on large items on sale like my KSNY bags or my most recent splurge of Broadway season tickets with my co-workers. I would rather spend money on experiences than a few items of clothing.

I hope y'all enjoyed this post. I am in no way making fun of or talking down about other people's blogs. These are just facts about me that make this little blogspace mine. I have met some amazing people in the blog world and some of them have truly wonderful blogging businesses, but that is just not me. I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
