so thrilling

here we are yet again...monday. i have such a busy week ahead....school, projects, student teaching, ellen taping, maroon 5....so this week is going to be crazy, but im excited!


I had a very low key weekend, like most weekends. i like it that way.





We had beautiful weather this week...it was still a little breezy but the skys were blue. The entire gang wanted to go outside & play....& by the entire gang I mean 4 cats & 2 dogs.


The BF & I were having a lazy sunday watching the Laker game when a Chilis commercial came on, displaying all their yummy food...my mouth was watering so we decided to take the drive to Chili's since we hadn't been in forever....since I live by the beach we have to drive inland to the nearest Chili's which can be frustrating, but was so worth it in the end.


The BF got sliders with onion strings which I stole & I got bacon, ranch steak quesadillas...which was what I saw on the commercial & was just as amazing in person....& ended the night watching SNL with Justin Timberlake & Anchor Man. What did you do this weekend?


so im not a mom...yet that is...but I def have my fair share of crazy babysitting days where I feel like a mom...& by the end of the day I am a complete mess, so it always amazes me when I see certain mommy bloggers who still manage to keep it together and look amazing....& speaking of fashion savvy moms today I have a girl who doesn't even look like she's a mom, she's so youthful.  I put together some of my favorite looks of hers  -






I love her classic style & would wear every outfit she puts together. She always looks flawless. She is a new mommy with the cutest little family, but she still manges to upkeep her fabulous blog...PLUS today she's here to give you some of her BEST blogging advice. So without further ado meet ----









Hey there Messy People! I'm Sarah, the writer behind the blog Frills for Thrills where I document things that happen/don't happen to me along with my daily outfits.




 I have a cute baby and a handsome husband that sometimes make an appearance, but other than that you can expect to see pictures of me in my outfits talking about real stuff. Frills for Thrills is my only form of memory-keeping, so my content generally represents a filtered diary-- I don't share everything but I most certainly keep things real. I love blogging because, most days, it is my only form of social interaction as a stay-at-home-mom. The past few months, I've been able to pour more into my blog and have learned a few things along the way. My top three pieces of advice for a blogger are:


Be Original: When I visit your blog I want to know who you are, not who you are trying to be. Please write about what you love, not what you think other people want to read about. 


Be Nice: View other bloggers as teammates and not as competition. Believe it or not, the internet is big enough for all of us! Don't use your blog to bash people (directly or indirectly) and always be positive when leaving someone a comment. 


Be Genuine: Similar to being original, it is important to be real. I understand that some bloggers like to "keep things positive" rather than share when they're going through a hard time, but I have found that blogging through rough seasons is not only therapeutic for me, but my readers tend to connect more when I admit that life isn't as perfect as the internet makes it seem. 


To learn more about me, come visit my blog. I'd love to meet you!



Isn't she so cute? Great blogger advice too....so today because she's aaamazing Sarah is giving away a $20 to Target!!! Which is perfect because if you haven't been to Target lately they have all their spring stuff out in such beautiful bright colors!
