Thursdays.... It's Personal

I have some bittersweet news today. I have decided to stop my Miss Independent Series for a couple of reasons:
1. I was running out of people to interview/people who wanted to be interviewed/people who had the time.
2. The series was honestly my lowest number of reader views. It just didn't seem like people were that interested in reading it in proportion to the amount of time I was spending on it.

But there's no need to fear! Of course I have a replacement series which I hope will be fun for you:

Thursdays... It's Personal

I'm not the type to really reveal too much about myself or my life on this blog. That definitely was not my intent of starting one. However, on Thursdays I'm going to start sharing a few bits and pieces of  my life's happenings. They can be anything from outfit posts, home posts or even recipes. So here goes today's post...

First off... the Little Black Dress. We all have one sitting in our closets, but the beauty of having at least one is that you can do so many things with it! Here are two recent ways I've worn mine:
Style 1: Wear it as a skirt
Style 2: Pair it with a fun cardigan

et voila! Perfection!

The second thing I'm sharing today is my NEW HEADBOARD!
I've been dying to have a headboard made from either an old door or window shutters... so one trip to Home Depot plus hubby's drilling expertise equals one new headboard!
Here is Tibbs modeling on the bed. 
He knew you all had been itching to see a new pic of him!

Also... I made this shadowbox full of things from our trip to Paris!
So here it is Thursdays... and it's pretty personal if you ask me.

I'm sorry to hear you have to stop your Miss Independent Series, but this is such a fun post! I get to find out more about you! Your bedroom is too cute i love the headboard idea, so simple yet it looks great with the rest of the room decor! But i'm most loving the way you hang your jewelry! I need to do something like this instead of stashing them away in a drawer!

Beautiful room, love the head board!! And it's nice to read some things about you too!! Sorry your series stopped, maybe you can do it again sometime, just here and there instead. It's not always easy to know what people will be interested in reading or not. I post about art because I love it, but I know not everyone is going to be interested, but that's ok!! Keep doing what you enjoy doing :) xx

This is an exciting series! A great way to get to know you more :) Love the way you wore your black dress and the headboard idea! I'm sad that Miss Independent is off the blog, but I understand - effort<response, can sometimes be reason enough to let it go...but who knows, it might come around again when the timing is right.
