HOW TO: Vote Me Cosmopolitan’s “Best International Fashion Blog w/ IFB”!!!

First of all, I LOVE the Independent Fashion Bloggers site. I stay up reading their articles late into the night, I submit a post every week…I just love that site!  So, it still doesn’t feel quite real being shortlisted as the “Best International Fashion Blog w/ IFB”. With nothing to lose, I did it and now here I am!


I honestly forgot that July 7th would be the day that Cosmopolitan UK planned to announce the shortlisters. I woke up around 8 am (mind you, I am NOT a morning person) for some reason and saw I had Twitter notifications. Someone added me to their Twitter list titled “Cosmo Blog Awards 2014!”. I was like “OH SNAP, WAIT” and immediately went on Cosmopolitan’s site to check who made it. Guess what?! I DID.

I jumped out of my bed, squealing. I ran around the whole house telling everyone the news. Then, I texted all my closest friends and even til now, it hasn’t completely sunk in. Honestly, I’m just excited for my blog to be linked to Cosmopolitan’s site. A couple of people even reached out to me by email for collaborations! And I’m like thank the good Lawddddd!

But enough about the back story and let’s move on to the future! 50% of the votes are cast by readers and the other 50% is made up from our awesome panel of Cosmo Editors. You can vote vote vote until August 29th.

Dream Bigger


“We must dream so big that without the support that comes through favor with God and man, we could never accomplish what is in our hearts” – Jamie Buckingham

I read that line in an article from the Charisma magazine that my mom ripped out for me.

I’ve been complacent. I’ve gotten complacent with my spiritual life, with this blog, with life in general. This is an extremely dangerous thing to do because when you’re bored and you don’t know why…what do you do?
