Truly My Way - Week 3: Pinterest


This week was supposed to be about blog reflection, but I've been using my Pinterest account a lot more recently so it seemed like the ideal time to write about it. Pinterest has been a huge help during my blogging time. It can be used for so many things! I mainly use it for tips and tricks to make my blog better. It can also be used for blog post ideas, to gain more exposure for your blog, or keep up with other people's blogs.

When I'm on my computer (and I actually remember to do this) I pin photos from my blog in the hopes that people will see them and click through to my blog. There's actually a lot of good that can come from this and there's quite a few pins on my Blog Lovin' board that go into detail about doing this. My favorite is from Krystal of Perfect Enough For Us (check it out here) in which she gives all her 'secrets' for making Pinterest work for you. I just started to use BoardBooster and I love how easy it is to schedule constant pins. I haven't been using it long enough to see any significant boost in blog traffic, but as soon as I do I'll be sure to update this post or include it in a future post.

Happy blogging!

Dress Target | Sandals Lilly Pulizter for Target | Necklace Forever 21

I'm sincerely sorry for the lack of posting. I've been on vacation since Tuesday and I decided that I didn't want to spend the entire time worrying about my blog. Instead I chose to focus on making memories with my boyfriend and family.

Whenever I go to Target I go with the intention of buying one thing. Yesterday this dress was that one thing! I'm a huge fan of the deep olive green color and the gold accents. I paired it with my favorite summer sandals from the Lilly Pulizter for Target collection and a chain statement necklace. I can easily see myself wearing this in the fall/winter with leggings or tights and boots too!

This is my first outfit post and my boyfriend's first time taking the photos for me. I think we did an okay job. If you have any tips, please leave them in the comments below.

Truly My Way - Week 2: Getting Noticed


This past week has been exciting. This week's goal was to get more page views or to just get noticed in general. I've received over 100 page views on this blog! I'm pretty sure 50% of them are mine, but I'm happy either way. I know this was supposed to post yesterday, but I messed up the scheduling -.- Bear with me as I'm still getting used to using Blogger on a regular basis.

6 Fun Facts

Since my blog is fairly new, I'm still working on my About Me page. I want it to be classy and funny at the same time so it's probably going to take a while for me to finish it. I saw this on Precious as a Peony and thought it was a great idea so here's a small taste of who I am!
