Blogging + Giveaway

Happy Monday babes! It's a day full of thoughts today...  After letting a lot of things pile up on my plate lately, and letting myself get overwhelmed, I decided to take this past weekend off as much as possible and take some time to re-evaluate.  I have worked from home since Avery was born and commit a significant amount of time to this blog as part of that.  I started writing it almost five years ago (note: do not scroll back to read all posts.  I am evolving!)  I love blogging.  It makes me happy, it helps me keep my sanity and an identity I felt like I was losing after having children.   I'm going to make this into a little bit of an outline...

Things I Love
  • Fashion
  • Cooking
  • Wine
  • Shopping
  • Interiors
  • Fitness/Health
Fashion and shopping are my true loves.  Food and wine definitely rank high up there as well.  Working out, healthy eating and living, and attempting to diet are all part of my daily life.  I don't want to write posts just to post them.  I want to write posts that I whole heartedly believe are worthy of your reading and being great content.  I don't want this to fall into the category of "work."  The work I do is very separate and distinct from this.  This is where I need YOUR help!  Please feel free to give me any and all feedback on what you enjoy reading (and a big THANK YOU for doing that in the first place!)



I want Pink and Fabulous to be a happy, bright space that makes both me and YOU happy, so let's talk!

Ok, babes, tell me what you want to read, what you like to read.  After seeing Amanda's blog revamp (it's fabulous!) I feel extra inspired to research Wordpress more.  Who uses it and loves it and why?  



As we're approaching bathing suit season (for some of us it's already here), I've been amping up my workouts and noticed it would be nice to have some fresh workout gear for the season. So, I teamed up with some of my bloggy favs to giveaway at $200 gift card to Lululemon. We all know their clothes are not cheap, so the lucky winner can go on a shopping spree on us to get a jump start on their workout wardrobe for the warmer months. Good luck!





Are you sick of all of my Monday questions? I know I am a little all over the place, but it is a day where I needed to chat with my babes and let the thoughts flow.  I truly value your thoughts and input. I hope your day is fabulous!

  1. I saw Amanda's re-do as well, and had been wanting to revamp my blog, but I stuck with blogger. I don't know enough about wordpress right now. I'm glad that you're blogging--I love reading your blog and seeing your cute outfits :)

  2. Amanda's revamp was awe inspiring to say the least, however I just don't see myself every switching for two reasons. One the huge upfront cost (nevermind the cost of redesigns in the future) and two... I'm the most technology challenged person ever and am super comfortable with the user-friendly blogger platform. So for now, I'll just sit and admire the prettiness of her new layout and wish I had the guts to just do it.

    As you my dear, I love absolutely everything you post because we have the same interests... shopping, fashion, wine, working out, and healthy lifestyles. Love it all, keep it up gurlie and have a fabulous week <3

  3. Oh girl I love your blog and what you write and I'd love to see more design posts - like interior design and how you decorate!!! And I second what Kate said - I have the same interests :) xo, Biana - BlovedBoston

  4. I absolutely love the switch!!! I would be so happy to walk you through any questions you have!! To tell you the truth it feels like how if you have been using Windows forever and then switch to a Mac. It takes some getting used to but then its so intuitive that you can't imagine using anything else.

    Secondly. I love your blog and your voice. You have such gorgeous taste and I always look forward to your shopping picks. Your home is also gorgeous so I would love seeing more of that. I also love your mom/parenting posts. I know that can be personal but I love reading about how you get it all done in a day. It is inspiring!

  7. Thanks for the amazing giveaway! Love you and can't wait to see how you "revamp" P&F (although I'm biased and think it's pretty perfect!). I really like Wordpress, mainly because I was sick of the .blogspot. I only shut myself down like 5 times so thank God I've gotten better at it by now ha. Good luck! :)

  8. You know I'm obsessed with Amanda's new blog look, too! I got a ton of great comments on the Wordpress debate from my post last Tuesday if you want to check those out. And I love your blog! The fashion ones are great and I also really like the home decor and recipe posts!

  9. Love your blog so much! I love your mix of topics and I think it's great just the way it is :). My favorite posts are home decor/outfit posts/ and kid related things. You're my first read every morning and I look forward to your posts each day!
    I've thought about WordPress too, just need to research it more and calculate costs. Amanda's blog looks BEAUTIFUL!

  10. Aww I love your blog just the way it is! Especially your loving lately posts! I always want to go on a massive shopping spree when I see what you post haha! I love the Wordpress look but I just don't have the money or the time to spend on making the switch to Wordpress! I work on a Wordpress blog through my work so I definitely have the HTML knowledge but I feel like it'd take me way too much time to migrate over. Either way I don't think you can go wrong!

  13. I check your blog every morning and Instagram a few times a day. I personally love when you share everyday mommy looks, like when you share selfies in your full length mirror. I'm a sahm and am always looking for inspiration for easy but put together looks and you used to do that more! Great blog and style and a bonus that your kids are adorable. Great job!

  14. I love your shopping and fashion because we have very similar styles and I love that you keep it mom real! Like anon said above I love your everyday mom looks the most. I also want to hear more about your fitness/diet!! I'm finally back to working out again and would love to hear what you do because I'm having such a hard time keeping it in check. I want to be skinny but I love food and wine sooo much.
