Letter From the Editor: Coffee Will Get Me Through October

#PSL

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

It’s Friday *sighs and plops down in comfy chair* THANK GOODNESS! This week has been never ending, and I have a feeling this next week will be filled with lots of work, too! Thank goodness for coffee *wink*

ANYWAY–this weekend is merely a transition into SOME AWESOME THINGS for all of October! Let me tell y’all a little bit about my October :)

I major in coffee
  • I will be interviewing NBC’s Tracie Potts for Direction: Northeast at Northeast State Community College. I am SO VERY excited about this broadcasting opportunity! EEK! Stay tuned for more info *wink*
  • I have like a bajillion papers due–let’s not talk about it…I’m just going to say that I am glad that Starbucks is open late. 
  • I am getting ready to tour transfer universities. #stressful #paperwork 
  • *fingers crossed* I am working on a new project; however, I do not want to spill any beans until it’s official-official as to when it will be released.
  • I have fall break to look forward to–that means a 5 day weekend of #NetflixAndChill *wink*
  • The blog *might* be receiving a little makeover this month–if all goes according to plan! 
  • AND…last but not least, I have a SUPER fabulous blog series coming soon *happy dance*

Weekly Whistle: Pumpkin, Spice-Up Your Wardrobe

img_2931

Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

Woo hoo! We are still pumpkin spicing it up on VIP, so I bet you can guess what this week’s Weekly Whistle theme is *wink*

Rather than putting together a new outfit, I decided to hop in my time machine to view posts of the past in search of pumpkin-spice-inspired ensembles. Here are some of the favorites I found–NOTE some of the outfits date all the way back to the beginning of the blog *gasp* The baby face game was too strong then *wink*

Be sure to come by tomorrow for a fabulous Three Ways to Wear which will feature lovely pumpkin spice outfits that you can shop IMMEDIATELY from the post! :) *happy dance*

~2012~ This is from one of the first ever VIP outfit posts, and I still own all three of these outfit pieces! I love the pumpkin-spice-inspired skirt mixed with the distressed denim vest (see DIY here) and vintage REO Speedwagon tank. This is pumpkin spied without going overboard *wink*

~2012~ This flowy ensemble was from the first Halloween feature on the blog, and I love the black and orange. It is a little pumpkin spice and everything nice--or "spooky" for the spirit of the Halloween season *wink* See the original post here.

~2013~ For those of you really wanting to embrace the pumpkin-spice spirit, this outfit should be an inspiration for you *wink* I styled this outfit to "look like a pumpkin" with my green hat (or stem). See the original post here.

~2014~ This outfit is more fall in escene; however, the pops of pumpkin made it truly spicy *wink* Check out the original post here. Photos were taken in Founders Park, Johnson City, TN.
