This summer the good news has just been flowing in! It seems like every time I open my email, I get another piece of great news (hey, no complaints here!) Never in a million years did I think 13 months ago, when I started this blog, that things would pick up like they did. I could have never imagined that I’d be working with some of my favorite companies like ModCloth and LuLus, getting sponsorships from brands like M&M’s and Pottery Barn, getting job offers, networking with magazine editors or be asked to fly to Miami to cover a music festival all because of my blog. I didn’t always get the support I wanted from those around me (with the exception of my family of course) but I quickly learned that you have to be your own cheerleader! So as a gift to me, in celebration of all my hard work and accomplishments, I decided to follow the words of Donna (aka Retta) from Parks and Recreation, and treat myself to something I’ve been wanting for a while: A pink fujifilm instax mini 8!
