Lessons Learned

Hope everyone had a great week. My week was hot and tiring! It was 90-95* every single day and we get up early (6.30am) in preparation for our back-to-school time. We (the kids and I ) would drag ourselves inside at 4:30-5:00pm, drop our bags and just lay on the couch completely enjoying the A/C for an hour, then eat, shower, and get ready to start all over again..

Hence, I have not shot many photos, nor re sized previous ones, much less drafted a post...:(
In my defense, I am a rookie blogger.However, I have decided to put on my big girl heels and my game will be up this week, I will shoot, edit, and post like a super woman who can handle hot weather, whiny kids, a full time job, and deep desire to reach my blogging goals!... Yep.. I am going to do it.
(If for some crazy reason I run into some kryptonite in the form of a tempting shady hammock,sweet iced tea, and no phone service,I will be back on here writing a very long, weepy, apologetic post)
So cheer me on!!

Since starting my blog, I have learned a lot. Allow me to share...

  1. Posts don't publish themselves. I had no idea that it took so many steps for one little post!
  2. You don't just take 1 or 2 pictures of yourself and call it a day.
  3. Plan ahead.
  4. Plan ahead.
did I forget something?... Oh yes...


Let me tell list the steps I thought it took to blog:
  1. Grab sunnies and take 2 OOTD photos.
  2. Sit at my computer after kids go to bed.
  3. Publish.
The absolute biggest lesson I have learned is that you can't really fashion /lifestyle blog or any kind of blog if you don't own a calender.I have been glued to my planner for the past two weeks trying to organize myself to be a better blogger. I had no idea that I would love and want to participate in so many fun linkups! Heck, I hadn't a clue on what "Linking up" actually meant! I greatly appreciate and admire all the lovely ladies that hosts their weekly linkup. (see list below.)

That is why I have decided to take a baby step and simply commit myself to two weekly posts. I am thinking on Sunday and Wednesday. These days will give me more opportunity to be ready for my beloved linkups. If I get more than two a week it will be thumbs up and pats on the back for me!! So please help me by cheering me on.  Another thing that I have learned from the blogging community is that there is so much support from ladies you feel live down the street or that you bump into at the grocery store (looking absolutely amazing) and chat with will you both grab your kid's favorite cereal. I love that I can relate to almost all of you.

(Hi! First time on blog with no shades! Babysteps, babysteps..)

Okay, its your turn to share the wealth,   How do you do it?!?!  What is the best tip you can give this little rookie blogger??? I would love and appreciate any and all advice!

Have a safe weekend!
Linking Up with Sunday Style !


  1. For me, the schedule is really important. I have a general idea of what I post about, and I post Mon-Fri. It helps so that I'm not just sitting and staring at my computer screen, or trying to play catch up. You're off to a nice start!:)

    1. Thank you so much for your advice! The playing catch up part is what i am hating! It make me feel rushed and that I am not giving my best. Thanks again!!
