A Blogaversary (and contest!)

Hello!!! I'm so sorry I missed all of last week! Work got really really crazy, and unfortunately, it took away from my blogging time! But I'm back now!! And I have some fun news!! A year ago, this week, I posted my very first post. So, in honor of my Blogaversary, its celebration time, and YOU (yes YOU!!) have a chance to join the celebration with me!!!

But, before I get to that, I want to let you know of a few changes on the blog. Starting next week, I'm going to start a weekly Looks I Luuuuurve feature, where I will feature regular people (mostly Clevelanders, obviously, but I will try and feature looks from other places when I travel) dressed for their normal lives, in looks I love! So if I walk up to you with a camera, will you please please let me take your picture??

One of my places to pick up fun, trendy, inexpensive looks is Forever 21. Which, conveniently brings me back to my Blogaversary celebration. On April 9th, a brand spankin new Forever 21 is celebrating is grande opening at Beachwood Place. And to celebrate, the kind folks at Beachwood Place are sponsoring a contest where one fabulous reader will win a $50 gift certificate to Forever 21!!!!
