Oh why hello there everyone!
So, as I've been hinting I've had some pretty exciting news I've been meaning to share with you all... Last week I got an email from the clothing company called StopStaring! to do a promotion for them. They told me to pick some of my favorite of their beautiful, retro inspired dresses and they would send me one free of charge to keep! Oh. my.goodness. I was beyond shocked and flattered and of course I jumped at the chance to do something so awesome and exciting!
I never believed that anything such as this would happen to me. Me. Lauren. A little seventeen year old gal from a tiny town in Ohio. A girl who honestly sometimes doesn't believe in herself even though everyone else may believe in her abilities. At that moment of receiving this email, I actually felt worth something. Like maybe I am good at this blogging thing, and maybe there is someone out there who could want someone like me. And maybe, just maybe there is more out there for me than my small, narrow minded town can offer. Ever since I started this blog, my ultimate and absolute dream was to be sent free clothing to model and take pictures in. Isn't that just every blogger's absolute dream?
Never in a million years (and probably even more) did I think something like this would happen to me. I'm in such shock, and so incredibly thankful. More thankful than you all could imagine. Blogging has been such a rewarding experience, and this opportunity makes all of the hard work I've put into my blog real and not just a fragment of my imagination. For all of you bloggers out there: your dreams seriously can come true. I never thought mine would, but I was totally wrong. They can come true, and they have.
With much love, Lauren.
