The Blend on Instagram

Happy Friday!

Guess what? I joined Instagram! I actually surprised myself with this one. I was only planning to utilize Twitter & Facebook for social media for The Blend, but after seeing Instagram photos of some of my favorite bloggers (via tweets) I knew I had to join. And I’m hooked! I have so many unused pics from photo shoots, daily explorations, and random inspirations that I want to share with you, but aren’t necessarily “blog post worthy”. I’m finding that Instagram is the perfect outlet to share these little “extra” pieces of my blended life.

Here’s a little preview…

Thanks so much for reading and enjoy your weekend 


Liebster Blog Award Nominee

I was completely blown away when I saw that Iris Interiors nominated The Blend for the Liebster Blog Award.  Iris Interiors is one of my favorite blogs and places to go to find fabulous interior design inspiration. I cannot thank Iris enough for her continued support of The Blend.

As a nominee, I have to answer a list of questions. So, here it goes:

4. Which country would you like to escape to right now?  Australia

5. How do you relax? shop

6. Are you addicted to something?  Coffee, waffles, and shopping…

Comeback Post

Reunited and it feels so good! Okay, I broke one of the #1 rules of blogging by not being consistent with my post. I know, shame on me. But to be honest, I was tired of posting non-original content. The whole point of this blog is to highlight places, style, and my life on the Shore… which I have yet to feature in any post. I think i’ve been a little hesitant because all the blogs I adore (ie. Cupcakes and Cashmere, Wendy’s Lookbook, Atlantic-Pacific etc.) are so freaking amazing! Quite intimidating for a little (non-photogenic) blogger like myself… But we all have to start somewhere, so I’m back and with original content (see Dew Tour post) whoop whoop! Not to say I won’t pull a fun DIY from Pinterest, or an outfit inspo from Polyvore every now and then, but for the majority, this blog will focus on MY explorations, MY style, MY life!

Welcome back, to MY blended world!
