1 Year Blogoversary + Q&A

Happy Friday lovelies! I am just about to finish packing up before I head off to NYC for the weekend. Our bus doesn't leave until later this afternoon but I need to get all packed and run some errands beforehand so I took a half day at work. I can't wait to share photos from this weekend--I'll definitely do a blog post about my trip next week!

Without even realizing it, my 1 year Blog Anniversary came and passed on April 4th! I can't believe a year has passed since I started my blog. Blogging has been such a blast and I have loved watching it grow over the last year. For the last 3 or 4 years I have wanted to start a fashion blog and had even tried a couple of times but ended up deleting them because I was never happy with the content. With Rosy Outlook, I wanted to take it really seriously because it was something I knew I would love doing! I have loved getting to connect with and "meet" all of you and can't wait to see Rosy Outlook grow even more over the next year! I thought it would be fun to do a "Get to Know Me" post today so I googled other tag posts and found some fun questions to answer:

What is your middle name? Rose! It's a family name and actually how I came up with my blog title!

What was your favorite subject in school? Probably will come as no surprise but I loved English/Writing courses. I also LOVED my history classes. I was a Political Science major with a minor in Journalism!

Where did you go to college? Clemson University--go Tigers!

What is your favorite song at the moment? Pillow Talk by Zayn--I mean c'mon. That song is AMAZING.

What is the last thing you bought? I have been trying to spend less money on clothes lately (emphasis on the word "trying") so I think the last thing I bought was the new Kristin Cavallari book!

What is your favorite book of all time? I am such an avid reader so that's such a hard question! My favorite genre is historical fiction so I love anything by Kate Morton (especially "The Forgotten Garden"). I also LOVED "Rebecca" by Daphne Du Maurier!

Do you have any pets? Yes! Toby my golden retriever mix. He is the love of my life! Sorry Steven.

Favorite Perfume? Marc Jacobs "Mod Noir"--I actually just recently received it as a gift but it is by FAR my favorite scent I've ever owned.

Are you  married? Not yet--will be on April 29, 2017 :)

How many siblings do you have? Zero. I'm an only child!

Favorite place to shop? It's probably pretty obvious from my blog but I absolutely LOVE Nordstrom and Shopbop. Zara is also one of my favorites!

What do you do for work? I work in Human Resources at an IT services company!

Favorite TV Shows? SUCH a hard question because I'm pretty die-hard over several shows. My current favorites are Game of Thrones, Penny Dreadful, and Modern Family! Favorite OG shows would be Friends, How I Met Your Mother, and Gossip Girl (obviously).

Hope y'all enjoyed this post and have a wonderful weekend!

  10. Happy Blogiversary, beautiful! I wish you MUCH success and continual growth this year and for MANY years to come, filled with awesome opportunities! It's been such a pleasure "meeting" you and discovering your blog! I really enjoyed learning more about you with this fun post! I think that's so cute and special that your middle name, Rose, is a family name and it's so pretty! Some of the questions, I already knew the answers to before reading your response, like your favorites stores; I know you're a huge fan on Nordstrom and Shopbop! I'm a HUGE lover of Marc Jacobs' fragrances, I have about 5 of them, haha, BUT I've yet to try the Mod Noir, I definitely need to try it!

    As for your trip to NYC, have a blast, girl, and enjoy EVERY minute; I can't wait to read your recap posts next week! Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have an amazing day, gorgeous girlie!
