Hey guys... (Don't worry this will not be an every year occasion!) I am just so proud that I have stuck with my passion for blogging for an entire year! This whole first year of making my blog into what it is ( and by no means is it over or done with!) has been such an amazing journey! I thank everyone of my sponsor, friends, followers, and family for encouraging me to embark and chase my dream and become a blogger! I love all of y'all so much and your support from the beginning is what has made this experience worth while and kept my passion driven! I will always love blogging and styling outfits, pieces, jewelry, & doing shoots, but I am so happy to be able to share them with everyone who reads and follows my blog & other sites and the relationships I have made through blogging. I just wanted to make this post all about giving back to each and everyone who helps me, guides me, inspires me, and most importantly believes in me. So thank you & I look forward to another year with all y'all <3

With that being said this post is to highlight the amazing remarkably talented fellow blogger : Maria Isabel!!! I cannot get over her talent it is such a magnificent gift and she does amazing work designing for blogs & websites! Her full site can be found here:! She is such a sweetheart and just plain adorable!!! As you may have guessed she is the mastermind behind this amazing transformation my blog recently went through!! I cannot promote her, her blog and her business of designing and transforming blogs & websites enough! She deserves all the attention she gets! So here is a glimpse into her blog and a bit about her!

How gorgeous is she?! Just stunning the best part is she is not just beautiful on the outside, but also on the inside, she is just an amazingly genuine person! Below is directly taken from her blog, so without any more of my rambling I will let her tell you about herself! 
I am Maria Isabel. I am a 19 year old student who lives in Texas. I work at a store called Charming Charlie as a fashion consultant. I am also studying Mass Communications- Broadcasting and Journalism and still cant decided weather or not to do a Business minor or a Marketing minor!

I am Puerto Rican and very proud of it. I am also a very shy person, but once I get to know someone I can easily become friends with anyone!

Blogging gives me a sense of peace and comfort that I cant find doing anything else. I like to be creative when it comes to my blog and I am still learning a lot. I also have a passion for photography and I am no professional photographer, but I can't wait to learn and be good at it.

And that is just a little bit about me :)

So I know it has been a long while since my last post.. but as y'all may have noticed.. my blog has received a huge makeover! I know not everyone celebrates their blogs first anniversary but my one year mark just passed, and over this year I have met, collaborated, promoted, and became friends with! I am so appreciative for all these bonds I have made and all the major relationships and exciting things I have been able to experience during my first year of blogging. I want to thank everyone that follows my blog & my other social media sites. I have always said I would stay myself throughout this journey and only blog about what I really love and what I truly believe in and I am confident I have stayed true to that promise I made myself. I know sometimes I get caught up in life, nannying, attending university, and daily ups & downs of life, but blogging/styling & sharing my thoughts & whatever I feel like talking & posting about is one of my biggest passions. I thank everyone that helps me with my blog in any form. You all are truly remarkable & angels in my eyes! I am so excited about how the remodeling of my blog came out, I cannot thank Maria enough (her grab button & link to her site is on the bottom right hand side!)
