What I Look At When I Visit Your Blog

Ever wonder what people notice first when they visit your blog? Most of my readers are also bloggers, so I check out their blogs if they leave a link. Here are the first things I notice when I visit a new blog:

  1. Layout: I love a nice easy to navigate layout. Blog readers like something simple, that can lead them to several pages with ease. I also love a plain white background. When you are reading an article, nothing is distracting more than a loud, colorful background. Also, I can speak for most of us readers when I say to make your font size normal. I won't read your posts if I have to strain my eyes.
  2. Content: Chances are i'm not going to look at a blog for very long if it's based around something i'm not interested in or if the content is just like every other blog out there(lookbook photos, beauty reviews, makeup tutorials etc.).  I read quality content that's different and the writer uses their own voice. 
  3. Reader Comments: Before I leave a comment on someone's post I always make sure to read the previous comments so I don't post the same thing as someone else. It's also nice to see the blogger responding to their readers comments, I think it's important for all bloggers to stay connected with their readers as much as possible.
  4. Popular Posts: Usually if other people like them, I will too. So I like to read your most popular posts to see what the buzz is about.
  5. About Me page: It's an easy way for the readers to learn more about the blogger, it's usually the last thing I look at but it's very important.
Bloggers, what do you look at when you visit other blogs?


  1. I first read through the About Me page.. I just like to know who I am looking at and reading! Something you said, that I feel absoluetly the same about is the Layout. If the background is distracting or the font is hard to read, I wont be bothered to look any further.
    Love this post! It is great to hear different opinions to change a blog for the better!

    Stay fancy!

Best Pinterest Inspired Summer Hairstyles

Every time I need a little inspiration, I get on Pinterest. I love these hot weather hairstyles that I recently discovered while pinning. I hardly ever wear my hair down in the summer, my hair is really long, thick and black so you can imagine how hot it is. So i'm always looking to try new hairstyles to sport in the summer months, these are my favorite pins for summer hair.

H&M for kids

Both of my sons are very fashion forward. With that being said, before I had children I had no idea little boys are so concerned with their appearance. Or maybe they took after us, after all my husband and I put a lot of thought into what we wear. My oldest son Jackson is the worst. If he doesn't like what outfit I pick out for him, he makes sure to let me know. Jameson is the almost as bad, he has to have his hair fixed every time we leave the house. 

Like every other american, I love h&m. There clothes and accessories are super chic and very affordable. It wasn't until last week when I received an H&M catalog in the mail that I realized they sold little boys clothing(be still my beating heart). Like everything else from H&M, its super affordable(cha-ching)! 

These are my favorite looks for the spring collection for boys.

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.
