Hello from Blissdom!

I just got done speaking at my session on hyperlocal blogging, so now I can sit back and relax and enjoy the rest of the conference! I wasn’t as nervous as I thought I’d be, and my co-presenters were so well-versed in the topic that I didn’t have much to add. Oooh, and look, I actually wore a dress!

Speaker Outfit

Yay me! I was surprised people recognized me without my jeans. Although you notice, I did add a denim jacket for good measure. I love how CAbi is expanding my fashion horizons.

Speaking of what I’m wearing, I’ve been obsessively refreshing a certain URL all morning. I’ve had a big project in the works for some time now, and I’m finally ready to share it!!!

You may or may not know that I have a collaborative fashion/beauty blog called Chic Critique.  It’s a great concept but it’s been plodding along for some time now because I haven’t been able to give it the attention that I wanted to.


A few weeks ago, my friend Melissa and I decided to partner up and merge our style blogs into one brand spankin’ new resource of All Things Chic.

Yes, that is the name of the new site — AllThingsChic.net.

We’ve been collaborating and building the site over the past few weeks and it’s FINALLY READY TO GO LIVE.  In fact, it is in the process right now.  I keep refreshing my browser, waiting for it to appear.  I’m just slightly jacked up about this, can you tell?

We have combined our contributors and added a few new faces to the mix, and we will be posting fresh content multiple times a day. Topics are not just limited to women’s fashion and beauty, but we’ll also be sharing our chic and stylish finds for the home and family. There will be a lot of new features and great giveaways and tons of fun, and everything we post is accessible to real women like you and me.

Next week we are planning a HUMONGO-FANTABULOUS Launch Party with some really sweet giveaways and lots of great style tips so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter so you don’t miss anything.

I hope you will subscribe and then tweet and facebook and shout it from the rooftops — help us spread the word!!!

  1. Looking forward to the new site. Hooray for you guys. Trying hard to ignore the envious feelings regarding Blissdom. By the time I go all the people I want to see will be over it. 😉

  2. Will ya’ll have notes to share from the session?

    LOVE your outfit, too. Is that a CAbi dress?

    Hope to see you tomorrow or Friday. I am leaving at the butt crack of down tomorrow to get down there and hoping and praying we have school or things will get complicated re: childcare! 🙁

  3. Love your outfit.
    Can’t wait to see your new site. Would love to see regular features on dressing chic for plus-size girls. 🙂

  4. I loved your tweets today about the monetizing today so much. I hope you summarize them when you get back. The information was great. I immediately went to install AdSense on my blog, but darnit I can’t get it to format the text ads that were recommended. Argh.

  5. That dress is oh so chic…love it!!! You totally rock it with the denim jacket and boots too. I’m glad your session went so well and congrats on the new site. I checked it out this morning and it looks fabulous. Good luck with it and I can’t wait for the big launch party!!

    1. It is CAbi. It’s a past season but if you contact a local consultant (there’s a place to find one on their website) you may be able to locate one. Or if you can find a factory store near you. 🙂

  6. Looks like I’m not alone in loving that dress. I just love the fabric and the way you paired it with tights, boots and a jean jacket is inspired. I could see myself wearing a similar outfit and it really suits you, too!
