Blogiversary!

{original image via}
It's my 1st birthday y'all!
I simply CANNOT believe that I hit the "publish" button on this little guy 1 year ago today.
Since then I have published 400+ posts, met many blogger friends that I am convinced are my long lost sisters, learned more about my ever evolving style choices, and somehow convinced a few of you to follow along while I was at it.
Seriously though, this blog is my after hours hobby, and it brings me SUCH joy to come home and read your sweet comments, and cook up new content for the next day. How you haven't gotten tired of pictures of me or my pug yet is BE-yond me!

To thank you for being a part of the Here&Now community and celebrate 1 year of blogging, I have a little giveaway for you beautiful people
I love displaying fashion/style books around my house, and especially enjoy the books recently put out by some of the amazing bloggers I have "met" though the interwebs over the past few years.
5 of my favorite books written by bloggers (that I would like to give to you to enjoy!) are I Spy DIY Style, What I Wore, Cupcakes and Cashmere, The One Hundred, and The Sartorialist.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being a part of my slice of the internet, and I can't wait to bring you even more great stuff in the very near future and over the years to come!
Cheers!!


P.S. I am linking up with Long Distance Loving for her 100th Friday's Fancies... head on over { there } to continue the milestone celebration party!

  4. Gorgeous Jessica, you have amazing style. I had joined/followed your blog a while ago and totally forgotten to read it. I had just checked it out at the time. For the past week I have been obsessing over your blog & your style and even commented on two of your posts (from this week) yesterday.

    You have sass, class, style, the right attitude and seem like a delightful girl to be around.

    It would be MY HONOR to invite you over my little page of the Internet and please follow me as well - I would be so delighted.


    P.S. Enter me on your giveaway, pleaseeee and thank youuuuu.


    Have a Fantastic, Blessed Weekend!! <3 Ada.
