Happy Second Blog Birthday!

Hey hey everyone! The blog is turning two years old today! Whoot-whoot! One of the best parts of writing this blog is “meeting” you all, even though it’s all been online (so far!). So, let me introduce you to some of our fellow readers who sent me their picture so we could see them and you all could meet them!

If you remember last year’s birthday party you may remember Cynthia. She is from Raleigh, NC and has really embraced style in midlife! This red leather jacket is electric! She definitely knows how to dress her shape and was recognized for her style in an interview here.

Our next guest is Julie. She is a life-coach and blogger from Michigan. In fact, you can learn more about her by visiting her blog here. Most of her outfit is from estate sales and she loves these jeans saying they look like leggings but feel like pajamas! What could be better? She was even kind enough to give us a link to them if you’re interested. And I must say I love her jaunty hat!

Let me introduce you to Tracy next! She says her boots are a lot cuter than they look, though they look pretty cute to me! She was very sweet and said that she is making better purchases because of reading the blog. That was so kind of her to say, because often I feel like I’m encouraging you all to shop shop shop!

Our last guest is the very prolific commenter Bettye. Her comments are a hoot and always crack me up! If you want to see more of Bettye’s style and read her personality-infused writing, you can visit her blog, Fashion Schlub, here.

Now let’s have some cake! Chocolate?

Or pistachio?

As we did last year, I will be thanking you all for being such loyal readers and giving away two $25 gift certificates to two randomly drawn email subscribers. If you are already subscribed to my emails then you’re already entered! If you want to enter, just add your email at the top of this page where it says to subscribe and I’ll be randomly drawing them in about two weeks. I’ll email you if you’re a winner and announce it here too!

Thank you all for your support, whether it’s commenting, sharing a post on social media or clicking and purchasing from the links to the clothing. I really love the community we have made here and I look forward to many more years and birthday parties!

I will be taking a blogging break for the next two weeks, recharging my batteries, and will be back with the winners of the drawing then! So, everyone, mix and mingle, eat some cake and I’ll see you in two weeks!

  1. Happy Blogiversary!!! Ooh, chocolate and pistachio, two of my favorites! Actually, my favorite is chocolate cake smooshed into pistachio ice cream. That is a LOVELY thing.

    Congratulations on Two Years! I know how much work you put into your blog and you offer your readers such good advice, I know they (WE) all really appreciate you!

    Maybe someday our real life paths will cross and we’ll meet for cake and champagne…and then do some shopping!

    Til then, Happy Anniversary and enjoy your two week break (although I’m sure you’ll be busy with house stuff!).

    xoxo Bettye

    1. You are always such a great commenter Bettye! I’m happy to pop by your blog to see your smiling face and personality filled writing. One day I hope to make it to New York (never been) so we will definitely meet IRL. Perhaps we should find a blogging conference to both attend? That would be a blast!

  2. Congratulations on the anniversary Julia! Two lovely years of blogging eh? I think it’s such a lovely idea to feature your loyal readers and let them show off their style. I hope you enjoy your blogging break and look forward to seeing what this next year of blogging holds for you.

    Lots of love
