Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: Back when I was a teenager (we don’t have to discuss how far back that is exactly), I was OBSESSED with magazines. I loved looking at all the pictures of how celebrities put their outfits together. One particular segment I loved was when they would put together an outfit from head to toe under a certain dollar amount. That’s definitely where my love of putting together great outfits on a dime came together. Today’s guest post, written by Vanessa Wood from Green Acres from Paris, is all about that – putting together an outfit for under Continue reading “Guest Post: Bougie on a Budget – Under $50 Fashion Challenge”
Note from Lifestyle Queen Bee: When I first decided to start this blog, my goal from the very beginning was to monetize it so that it could be a source of passive income for myself. When you’re first starting out, sometimes you don’t have a ton of extra cash (if any at all!) to put into building & growing your blog/business. Not to mention all the research you typically conduct trying to figure out the best platform for your blog, your niche, etc. Today, Guest Maurine Anderson is helping cut all the guesswork out as part of Continue reading “Guest Post: How to Have a Professional Looking Blog on a Low Budget”

Ever since I stumbled upon Pinterest years ago, I have been hooked from the start. I can spend hours drooling over dream houses, replicating the perfect outfit or being inspired by amazing DIY projects. When I decided to start my blog in June 2016 and decided to start looking to blog tips & tricks on Pinterest, I found myself in an ocean of information (& I’m STILL learning new stuff all the time!).

While today is an off day for posting, I’ve decided to put up a special post to review my top 10 posts of 2016 (especially since it is the last day of the year)! The year was full of ups (got married, moved to Toronto, got a new puppy, started my blog) and downs (put my older dog down, left behind family & friends in Ottawa, a vital friendship fell apart), looking back on my first year of blogging not only shows how much I’ve actually accomplished this year but inspires & motivates me to make 2017 even greater!
