My first big glossy fashion Magazine plug, InStyle

There i am.  I’ve gone blonder, tanner and famouser.  

Nope. Here i am:

Under ‘TrendSetter Web Faves’   BOOM!

I did the interview a few months ago where i gave them my top 50 favorite online places to shop, and they chose these two to feature – and sprinkled a bunch of them throughout the magazine.  (OpenSky is a flash sale sight that is curated by ‘celebrity’ curators as opposed to submissions and sales, so its more hand-picked.  We are starting to work together so as soon as its official, i’ll announce it and y’all can ‘follow’ me).  And you know Velocity, they are generally great source for all things modern.  

As most of you know, i’ve worked for magazines for years, but being in them feels completely different.  

So when i opened this up and saw that i was in there grouped in under ‘Trendsetters’ with Zooey Deschanel, Tori Burch, Todd Selby, Andy Spade and ModCloth i was EXTREMELY happy – like as happy as Bearcat is when  I tell her that she and I are going to have a Vampire Diaries marathon all night including massive amounts of cuddling.  That, is very very happy my friends.

 I know you guys love me and i know my friends and family love me, but to get national press from a big glossy magazine that is more fashion than home, feels amazing.

I guess what i’m so proud of is that its from my hard work on the blog, its a ‘best of the web‘ and the blog is 100% my baby that i spend 10-20 hours (until 3 months ago unpaid) a week on.  I have to defend spending time on the blog all the time to people who don’t get it – people think its silly or cute or a waste of time, and yes it is a massive amount of work as a lot of you know – but its extremely rewarding, and totally worth it. 

It’s become something that has helped me support Brian and I (Thanks to Lana), something that i can control completely, something that helps me sleep at night because i know that no matter what happens to the show, i have this business that can thrive independently.  It actually gives me the freedom to feel like i can start a family because i can always blog whilst 9 months pregnant or with a 2 month old, whereas shooting might be more difficult.  

Let me be clear, obviously HGTV, Design Star and Secrets From a Stylist have had a lot to do with the blogs success, they have driven a ton of traffic my way and from the show i have a lot of original content which is what makes a successful blog.  So they pretty much propelled me a couple years ahead, traffic wise.  Thanks, boss.

And lastly, its from the blog i have gotten all my awesome new ‘Real People’ Clients and created a design company with a staff even, and business is a-booming.

So in case you have a blog and you think its going to go nowhere, think again.  Seriously.  The amount of people i know that have created their own success out of simply writing a blog is kinda crazy – A LOT.  The key is being yourself and not overanalyzing it.  

I just wish we could come up with a better word than BLOG, its not doing us any favors….

OK, enough boasting for the year.  And thank you ModCloth and InStyle.  Very Much.  I owe you one.

In case you find this fun, read my very first blog entry ever – not even 2 years ago.   I was a little blogging baby, wearing my little blogging ones-y, finally taking the plunge that i had wanted to for years.  Nice job, past Emily, you done did it.  

  1. “Good. Now we must leave a note for Bolivar telling him to wait for us here. Then we must go out and find his dressing room-so we can talk to Gar Goyle. I am sure that he will be happy to help us.”

  2. “Sorry about that pause. But I had to convince a certain party that, in these days of technological wonders, the previous bit of this interview could have been electronically faked. What cannot be faked is a fact known only to you and me. So cast your mind back down the long light-years to the time when we first met. I always wore a locket around my neck. Do you remember what was in it?”

  3. We trundled through the morning traffic until we reached the tollway. This was filly automated and switched the truck over to autocontrol as soon as we left the slipway. We speeded up until we were exactly ten meters behind another truck. We stayed there with machinelike precision. With the tollway doing all the driving, Igor fell instantly asleep. I watched the dismal industrial landscape slide by-and timed the service areas. One appeared every half an hour. Very organized.

  4. I rolled aside as the glowing disk of metal dropped to the ground. Just to make sure I would not be disturbed I threw some more sleepgas charges up into the van. I took off the gas mask with its dark lenses, put filter plugs in my nostrils before I climbed in myself. Spun about at the strange grating sound. Saw in the light of my torch a snoring policeman. Asleep and uninjured as were the other two.

  10. “Of course! That platform wasn’t there when he walked around the stage, then put the boxes into place. Only when he went to greet you and the spotlight followed him. In the darkness, radio-controlled undoubtedly, the beam came forward and slid the platform into place atop the boxes. Invisible from the audience because it was black like the tops of the boxes. But the ring-it went the length of your body, even past your shoes-“

That leaves the KN 08, which was unveiled at last April’s military parade in Pyongyang. was ramping up its ballistic missile defenses on the west coast/Alaska was interesting because Pentagon officials used the KN 08 as a rationale for the move, but then refused to divulge the intelligence they have on it.

  23. Per il futuro, se dovesse prevalere l’ipotesi del traghettatore, si fa il nome di Massimiliano Allegri, attuale tecnico del Cagliari, pi compatibile con il ruolo del ct. In pista anche l’ipotesi Zaccheroni. Per la Juventus sarebbe il quinto tecnico in quattro stagione (Deschamps, Corradini, Ranieri, Ferrara), una media davvero invidiabile per una squadra abituata a ragionare su progetti di lungo termine. Ribaltoni e cambi di guida tecnica, investimenti massicci, al momento non hanno mai portato a vincere qualcosa di importante, e la pazienza del popolo juventino davvero ai minimi termini. I numeri sono impietosi.
