200th post

Y'all. 200 posts. What? How did I get here? I feel like, because my blogging was a little sporadic for a while there, my 200th post is more of a milestone than an anniversary or blog birthday. I've worn 44 outfits, shared 8 guest posts, and written about everything from Sisterhood to Instagram, mental health to celebrities I can't help but love, and recent purchases to growing up. This blog is my wellness as much as it is my ambition. I write for me, but I blog for my community. I care so much about the people who have shared in the last 200 posts, whether they read them, commented on them, or shared them. Thanks for your continued support.

In honor of my 200th post, I've decided to post a vlog. Well, not really decided so much as my girl Kristina tagged me in her vlog post and I thought it would be a fun way to celebrate. I apologize profusely for the quality of this video. I wish I could make a cool vlog like Bri, but this is what y'all get. Cats and arm dancing and an unsolicited explanation of my favorite number. So go watch and enjoy. Also, eat some cake. I know I will be.

(ps. way to make the most awesome frozen video face, nic...)
oo1. Do you have a cat and can you show her to us? (asked by Danielle of Goodwillista)
oo2. If you could learn any type of dance, would it be swing, salsa, or tap? (asked by Kristina of Kristina in Retroworter)
oo3. How do you keep a budget? (asked by Sarah of The Dorrohs)
oo4. What is the meaning of [your] life? (asked by Kate)

For the sake of Sisterhood (but no pressure to post), I'm tagging:
Jess of Animated Cardigan
Toyosi of Standard T
Danielle of Goodwillista
Elissa of Style Wire

  2. My brain does that color association too!! I associate colors with music! And I LOVED your meaning of life, definitely warmed my heart and made me think about my middle school-self. Happy 200th post! :)

  3. CONGRATS! 200 is kiiiiiiiinda a big deal, so I'm glad you're celebrating. What a treat to get to seeeee youuuuuu in real life (almost). You are adorable, and I want to smoooooosh that kitty cat like nobody's business. Congrats again!

  4. We.. are kind of like soul mates. You have a shoulder dance, I have a shoulder dance. I also make a "turtle" face according to my lovely (evil) friends. I typically just jive, and probably should've been born in the 30's so I could dance in the fifties. Bobbling around sounds like a great plan though.

    I always kind of wanted to be a middle school teacher, and for some reason I've just always loved kids at that age.

    yay 200th post though! wooohooo! :D


  5. oh oh oh. I'm so happy I finally got to hear your voice!!

  6. Yay your cat! Haha that was the most random question ever...
    I love what you had to say about your middle school self being happy with who you are now. I think my middle school self would be shocked to see herself now... Shocked in a good way. She'd know that that huge gap in the middle of her two front teeth would be pushed together! Ha
    You may have convinced me to make another vlog... But it'll be weird without my Cody!

  7. Congrats on your 200th post! I've been reading your blog for awhile now. Love how empowered it makes me feel!
