One Year of Fashion teal!

Hey girls,
As of today, it's officially been a year since Fashion teal!!!!!

 Now, I am super excited about that, because I couldn't have gotten to a year without support of my followers and readers. Thank you, thank you! I have grown so much over this year, which is amazing!
 When I started Fashion teal (at the time, it was called FashionStarrxoxo), I had a dream to gain followers and readers who all share the same passion as me: fashion. I wanted people to come to my site from near and far, and I wanted them to read it and get excited that someone shares their interest in fashion as well. I had read other people's blogs, and decided to join in on the blogging craze. Little did I know that blogging would be so much fun. I was excited to share my passion for fashion, and I hoped that I would gain lots of followers by doing so. And no, when I talk about wanting lots of followers, I don't mean I want a lot of followers so I can strut around with my nose in the air and tell aspiring bloggers, ha ha, I have more followers than you. I would never want to do that because I remember that when I created this blog, I was an aspiring blogger as well. Everyone has to start somewhere. The reason I want a lot of followers is so I can spread fashion everywhere, and share my love for fashion with other people so they can share their love of all things fashion with me.
 I remember, not too long ago, when my blog was named FashionStarr xoxo. I went through a change of, well, everything, and emerged with Fashion teal, my new and improved fashion blog. It was an exciting change, but it was a little scary because I was changing my whole blog. But it turned out to be okay, because I feel like my blog is so much better now!
 This past year of Fashion teal has been difficult. I have broken down because I was upset at how my blog was doing (I wasn't getting a lot of followers, and it upset me a lot, because I expected my blog to take off.) On several occasions, I was so frustrated with my progress, or lack of progress, that I thought about ending Fashion teal, but I know I just couldn't end this blog, because then where would all of my thoughts about fashion go? Who would I share my passions for fashion to? I just knew that I had to work hard to achieve my goal, and while sometimes it was hard and frustrating because I didn't like how little followers I had, I know I had to keep going, because I knew things would get better. I know that I am not at my goal (I am far away from it, as a matter of fact), but with time, I knew Fashion teal would become popular, and people would share their love for fashion here. Knowing that Fashion teal might have a chance is what fuels me to blog. I can't tell you how excited I am about it!
 I know I still have a lot more to do to reach my goal of being a successful fashion blogger, and I am excited to get there with my loyal and completely fabulous followers, commenters, and readers. Thanks for letting Fashion teal live for a year! :)

Three Pieces

Hey girls,
 Today I wanted to show you guys an outfit that I like. And no, nothing here is made by me! Wow. Shocker. A few of the reasons why I like this outfit is because the pieces are simple, and put together, the simple becomes chic and a sleek outfit. It's also very classy, and I am absolutely in love with shift dresses lately, especially this black one because it's so understated but very professional. I would also like to point out that in this outfit, there are only three pieces: the shift dress, the jacket, and the flats. I didn't add any bags or accessories in this outfit because sometimes, it's okay to play down an outfit by not adding any bells and whistles. And three pieces in an outfit can still look as good as an outfit with accessories.

Jacket: H&M
Dress: TJ Maxx
Flats: H&M
 This is what I mean about how sometimes simple can be fashionable as well. In fashion, it's not about what you put in the outfit, it's about how you put the outfit together.

Black and White

Hey guys,
 Today I want to show you a skirt that I made quite a while ago. It is such a pretty pattern and the fabric is so well structured, that I had to buy this fabric to make a skirt out of! At first, I did want to make a straight skirt, and I had a pattern, and all that was missing was the perfect fabric. When I saw it, I knew that it was the absolute right fabric. I paired it with my favorite pair of boots, to sum the entire outfit up. I am currently in love with these picks, and the outfit came together suprisingly nicely.

Top: Cynthia Rowley
Skirt: handmade
Boots: Rainbow
Bracelet: Pandora

 Now you see how I really thought that the outfit came together to create a clean, finished look. I especially love the fit and look of the skirt, and the length is great as well.
 I am currently involved in the Bloglovin' Follower Challenge, as I wrote in my last post, so make sure to follow me on Bloglovin'! You can follow me on the side of my blog or by using the link here. Thanks so much in advance if you follow me!

Bloglovin' Follower Challenge: Follow Me on Bloglovin'

Hey girls,
 I want to talk to you about a contest I recently entered in. It's called the Bloglovin' Follower Challenge, and the purpose of the contest is to gain more followers. I entered this contest for a number of reasons. One reason is that I want to gain more followers, because that means more people are reading Fashion teal, which makes me very happy :) Another reason that I'm entering in this contest is because the winner of the contest will be featured on the Bloglovin's site and their blog! Naturally, I would love for this to happen because I would get even more followers from this happening, and even more people would read Fashion teal! And more readers would mean that I would post more often, and I would even sometimes let you choose what I blog about! So yeah, this is some pretty big stuff. I am so excited to get this started, so I want you (my readers) to help me with this. So first, if you don't have one. it would be super cool if you got a Bloglovin' account by going onto their site and signing up. Then, voila, you have a Bloglovin' account!
 Next, you can either type in "Fashion teal" and click follow or click this link to get to my Bloglovin' account, and then follow me. It will show some other suggestions based on you following me, and it would be cool to follow them as well! I also have a Bloglovin' button on the side of my blog, so if you click that, you will be following me as well.
 Then, you spread the word! If any of your friends have a Bloglovin' account, tell them to follow me, and tell them to tell other people. It's basically like the tell two friends effect. And if your friends don't have a Bloglovin', encourage them to get one so they can follow me! I will be very excited to see if you follow me, because then I will be a very happy girl ;)

Bath and Body Works Pearberry Lotion and Body Spray Review

Hey girls,
 I have been lately using a body spray and lotion from Bath and Body Works, and I. Love. It. The scent is Pearberry, and while that may seem weird, I love love love the scent! It's fruity and sweet and a teeny bit tangy as well.

 When I first tried the body spray, I fell instantly in love with the scent. It was different yet amazing and I instantly felt like I was in the tropics. I absolutely love the scent because it is the right amount of fruit and perfume to make anything smell good!
 Since I have got it, I have been using the lotion and the spray every day. I first start with the lotion on my arms and legs and chest, and then I finish with the body mist. I spray a cloud, then walk through it. I can smell the fruity scent when I walk through the cloud. It just smells so good! 
 The good thing about this lotion and the body mist is that the smell isn't that strong. You can smell it, but it's not able to smelled six feet away or anything. I really like that because then the smell seems more natural, and that is what I'm going for when it comes to perfume. I want the smell to seem natural, like it's my actual scent, and I don't want it to be noticeable that I spray on the perfume. I can smell the perfume in it, but I smell more natural fruit. It's sort of a softer smell, which I really like. I really admire how sweet it smells as well.
 Another thing that's got me positively drooling over these products is the packaging. I love the flowers, pears, and leaves designs on the bottles, and I especially love the way the two look when they are placed together. I know, that's kinda weird, but I like everything about it!
 The only thing that I don't really like about this is the size of the nozzle on the body mist. It's a bit to small for me, and sometimes when I go to press the nozzle, I only press half of it, and it doesn't spray. Besides the small nozzle, everything in these two power scents screams perfection. You can purchase the lotion here and the body spray here. There's also a shower gel in the same scent that I would love for you to check out! You can find it here.
