Happy Friday everyone!

I woke up this morning (ahem, more like afternoon) and was so elated to see that I had hit OVER 1,000 followers via Google Friend Connect! In the big scheme of things, blogging isn't about the followers and how many you have. Blogging should be about posting what makes you happy for you--not for others. But the fact that over 1,000 people follow this blog...it blows.me.away. When I first started this blog I dreamed of having 1,000 followers, but it felt like it would never happen. When you're stuck at 58 followers for a good six months 1k seems pretty far away, hah. 

It is hard for me to wrap my mind around that number of people that follow me. On my twitter the other day I posted that I had hit over 750,000 total page views. That number is terrifying to me that my blog has been looked at that many times. I guess I just don't understand...why? In my eyes I am nothing special. It's not a low self-esteem thing or even being humble. I'm just this ordinary midwest girl who's in college and wears clothing? What's so special about that? When reading through the comments of my 4 year blog anniversary I was just so overwhelmed with gratitude that you all take the time out of your busy lives to read about mine, see how I'm doing, and support and encourage me on. Blows me out of the water, really. That I'm some of you guy's favorite blog...? Like, what have I done to deserve that honor?! Honestly nothing.

I'm just lucky to have over 1,000 people and more who, even though I am just me... that's enough for them. Forever thankful and forever grateful. I was just thinking that 1,000 is such a huge, important milestone that I want to draw TWO winners for the MAC lipstick giveaway. One in celebration for four years and one in celebration for 1,000 followers. I feel like it's only a right way to say thank you Now if I could only buy all of you a MAC lipstick but that'd be ohh... 1,002 x 15 = $15,032. I think I need that for my tuition haha.

Love you all! If you haven't entered the giveaway yet it's right here :)

With much love, Lauren.

You've been reaching one milestone after another lately, dear Lauren. Congratulations on hitting 1,000 subscribers. No one deserves it more than someone like you!

Jess said...

You totally deserve this Lauren. As I said on Instagram the other day, you're my favourite blog hands down as you're such a kind, down to earth person who takes her time to actually speak to the people who support her which I find so lovely because not many bigger bloggers bother with that anymore. You're always there and I know that if I need advice then I can drop you a twitter message and you'll reply with a super helpful and personal answer that makes me feel special as you took your time to read and write a lovely and lengthy reply!
You may feel like you aren't anything special but I can assure you that you are because you have such a kind heart. :)
I think we are the ones who should say thank you for brightening our (at least my!) days! :)

Hey lovely!!! That's a wonderful achievement! But we need more lovely, genuine young people out there as role models! I'd love to enter your giveaway but I don't really wear lipstick so I'll make the probability higher for someone else by not entering!! But that's a lovely generous gift for someone!
I love this outfit (and that jumper is SOOOOOOOO nice!) but I really really hope you won't be offended (just because you are so beautifully stylish) but I find the colour of those tights a little startling- it looks like your legs are really pale but they're not quite white tights! Please don't be offended!! xx

Kezzie said...

Ahrgh, hit the button before amending!!! It might be my screen that makes them appear not quite white!! xx

Jamie Rose said...

Wooo! Congratulations on such a big milestone. People flock here because you have such a cute style, pretty pictures, and really candid, truthful writing style. You're awesome!

P.S. This outfit is just so so cute. I love this sweater you thrifted. Pairing it with red shorts was a fantastic idea!

I first saw you in this month's Seventeen magazine and realized "Wow, her and I are the same body shape" so I decided to check out your blog. I hope you don't find this creepy, but I think I've gone through your whole entire blog. Needless to say, I'm obsessed with your style. And because I have gone through most of your blog, I decided to start one of my own! I'm really excited and I just wanted to say a big CONGRATS on you reaching 1,000 followers!

Hope you have a lovely rest of the week!

First of all, you have AMAZING style, so you totally deserve 1,000 followers. Second, even without the style, you seem like such a sweet person.

Congrats on 1,000 followers (and being in Seventeen mag!)

Congratulations! If I know one blogger that deserves so much support, it's you Lauren! I have loved reading about your life in college (and even before college, haha) and your style so much in the last couple of years :) I don't have any other blogger in my reading list that has such a fun, colorful and sweet style as you do :-) Keep it up! xo

… so very stylish, I love the look…..it is so chic….. the lovely red shorts and that adorable sweater……, .. …………love you in the white tights ...no one wears white tights better than you do..... I've always loved white myself...goes back to the days when I was a teen and begged my ballet teacher to let me wear white tights instead of black for my classes........ I have worn shorts or big shirts and sweaters with tights on campus all fall…… obviously like you….
… you certainly make a beautiful statement….. and you are so very pretty……..you have beautiful hair too……
I grew up in tights, being in ballet for 13 years. In fact, mom raised me rather androgynously, so I also wore tights under big sweaters and hip length tunics and such around the house growing up. Your lovely look reminds me of all those days….epsecially when the delivery man would come and I’d meet him at the door and he’s refer to me as Miss……
Oh, by the way, I’m a guy…and I love fashion as much as I love dance.
I traveled in Europe this past fall,
It looks like you have the same affinity for tights as I have…..
I’ve been raving to my new friends about how much I love the tights/shorts look, so they encouraged me to try it myself…
and I have in a big way,….. denim cutoffs, high waisted shorts, even a romper…….
I will following your blog religiously….. thanks for sharing your lovely taste and your beauty
