These are the things that are the very most important to me. God. My family. My friends. In that order.
One of my lifetime best friends, Akasha, has been in town from California the past few days. She has three adorable children and still probably barely weighs in at a buck ten. I admit I was jealous of her in high school, the boys seemed to be more attracted to her natural beauty and soft giggle than they were to my flat chest and bossy pants attitude. Weird.
Somehow we overcame high school together and then were college roommates and then somehow even lived in Hawaii together. I have been forever grateful for her in my life and have somehow wondered what she sees in me? Like I'm kind of bossy and annoying? Why does she like me so much? But she does and I like her and that's what best friends are all about. There is something to be said for a girl who understands you without saying a word, who laughs at the exact same things you laugh at, and who can pick up a conversation right where it left off nine months ago.
Ah, geez, we just got right on sappy there, didn't we?
What I meant to say was "I've been hanging with my besty this week having so much fun, it's a blast because we get to go shopping! LOL!"
I'm excited for y'all to read today's hilarious guest post by Rebecca at Mommy in Heels. She's a self proclaimed "fashion blogger" and explains the rocky road she took in getting there. In other words, Rebecca just makes fun of herself and all the clothes she used to wear. Now I don't know about you, but I love a girl that can poke fun of herself, that doesn't take life too seriously, and can laugh with the rest of us when she looks ridiculous. That's Rebecca in a nutshell. Take it away, girl!
Hey everyone! So happy to be blogging today at The Life of Bon. She is such a beautifully funny person, isn't she?
Let's talk about how I came to be a fashion blogger, at Mommy in Heels, shall we? I'd like to think I was destined to be a fashion blogger. (I should probably preface this whole post by saying I am just a tad bit of a sarcastic person if you can't tell!)
I think it went all the way back to junior high. I was just ahead of my time. I mean, I knew way back then that selfies were the way to go. Except, I just had to trust that I looked damn good since I was using my purple Le Clic camera.
I already enjoyed posing for the camera. I mean, who wouldn't want to get a picture taken wearing a crop top and jeans with the longest zipper ever? I think I needed to pull my button fly jeans up just a tad bit higher though. Then I would have been a true fashionista.
As fashionable as my purple Doc Martens made me in junior high, I am pretty sure my fashion sense took off in college. Just take a look at my ribbed turtleneck sweater collection. If that doesn't scream "fashion blogger" then I don't know what does. Seriously though, when you think of going out to a college keg party, the first thought in your mind is "turtleneck sweater," isn't it? Yep. I thought so. It is. Nothing easier to do keg stands and chug beer in than a turtleneck.
We can talk about my friend Jess' leather jacket another day. I could dedicate a whole post to late 90's early 2000's leather jackets. You know we all had one. (ps, love you Jess)
Yep. Every color of the rainbow. And lets just ignore how hardcore we were drinking Mikes Hard Lemonade.
Although my husband has his story of how he knew I was the one, I am almost certain in was my turtleneck collection that won him over.
Or maybe it was this outfit. He took one look at me and thought, "that outfit makes her look like she would be a good wife and Mom. And one helluva fashion blogger."
So there you have it, ladies. I think it is pretty obvious from these pictures that it has always been in the cards for me to be a fashion blogger. When you look that good in a turtleneck sweater, you're destined.
If you have time, take a second and vote for me here! I was lucky enough to be invited to enter a contest to win a "me time" getaway to Miraval Resort and a Wallis wardrobe! How awesome is that!!! Thank you so much! (and hopefully Wallis has an awesome turtleneck sweater in their fall collection I can totally wear)
Hope you all have a great day! You can check out my blog here or follow me on Bloglovin, Twitter, and Instagram!
