Stumbled upon some fun!

I have a couple fun website to share with you.  I received an email from Shecky's, which if you don't know has awesome Girls Night Out events.  Their newsletter shared a wonderful website called

Workchic Co-Founders, Melissa McGraw and Jennifer Diana created this site to help women "dress for work by offering suggestions on outfits, fit guidelines, tips and tricks on how to look professional, feminine, and chic."  As I looked through the pages of workchic, I came across another wonderful website! (It was a very good  day!) This website is call Polyvore

Polyvore allows you to make your own fashion collages.  I was so excited!  I could not wait to pair my items from Berlynn Designs with some of my favorite items.  Unfortunately I found out that I could not use Polyvore with Etsy. :(   SO I went and made one myself in a photo editor.  AND.... Drum roll please>>>>

 It is pretty simple but I think it gets the point across of how you can put a ladytie with your own work gear.  Enjoy my new finds!  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

"Who is your audience?"

"Who is your audience?" This is the question posed to me some weeks ago when asking advice of the wonderfully talented Deborah Moebes. Deborah is the founder of Whipstich Fabrics and talented author of the whipstitch blog. I have toiled over the answer since then. She gave me so much to think about but I still struggled to come up with an answer. In the mean time my sad little blog just sat. Well, driving home from work one day it came to me! My audience is people like me. So who am I? I am a young person in a corporate job that pays the bills but who’s passion is creating. I enjoy a great meal, shopping and stumbling over cool websites and helpful guides. From now on you are my audience. Yes you, the quirky, the cool, and the creative...all of those that don't benefit as much from the creative mom blogs.

The first find I have for you is

This site has everything under the sun. You can find an entire weekend of events in your city or countless others that are featured on the site. I have registered to receive emails about style and food. You can decide how often they email you and how many topics. Everyday I look forward to seeing what they have in store for me. Not only are the articles helpful, they are amusing. 2 thumbs up for!
