That basically gave me the idea to share these things, and the motto of my blog is style and fashion for the everyday girl.

I'm not sure if this is favourite blog post of mine or someone elses? So I'll mention both.

If it's something you really want to do go for it, it takes a lot of time and commitment, but I love every second of it. Be original and be you, there's place for all kinds of people so don't feel that you have to imitate or try and be anyone else but you.
8) Other than your own, whose blog do you read on a daily basis?
They're all listed on my blogspiration button, but at the top of my head: Past Midnight, Lipgloss Kisses, The Teacup Diaries, What I Heart Today and Pearls and Poodles.

Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. ~Marilyn Monroe~
