Blog sophistication

Sometimes, as I drool over other people’s very decadent blogs I realize what mine may lack. Today.. I decided it was sophistication.

Therefore, I came to the conclusion that clearingpreppysname’s page theme should be different.

I’m entering a new time of my life, one unlike the frivolous high school days that have passed. The light pink bubbly background was perfect for then, but shouldn’t my blog reflect these life changes?!

Burgandy is such a gorgeous fall color that just oozes elegance and sophistication in my humble opinion.

What’s your opinion of the new blog set up? The color tones? I’m still figuring it out. Feedback is great! Along with the new set up though, I also added a badge from Fashion Parkway Online Magazine. You can find it at the bottom of the home page :).

This is where you come in… I need your help. I’m part of a blog hop, and there is a list.

AHHH! The pressure :O!!

The list ranks popularity of the Fashion Parkway bloggers according to the Alexa traffic bar. My personal blog? It’s lagging. Yesterday, I ranked 2nd on the list. Today I’m ranking 15th. I want the lowest score possible.



(a play on hide your wife, hide your kids…)

okay, that’s a bad joke.

But spread the word to everybody and anybody about!

It obviously can’t survive without you!

And its author, yours truly, is expanding her online locations because of the recent success! Writing for Fashion Parkway Online Magazine has been a great way for me to meet new bloggers and expand my horizons. Why stop there?

I’ve found Image 34! Another online magazine, this time based out of the UK! I’m going to writing fashion segments for them starting in September. This new phase of my life should inspire new styles and new reasons to gush about all things fashionable.

Once I’m away from a town with a population of 5,000 I really think it would be hard not to find inspiration.

Today’s finger nail polish inspired my blog change. The possibilities are endless!



The question is.. now that my finger nail polish has been so life changing, what colors should I paint my toes?!


Inspiration at midnight.. negligible.

Hey blog readers!

It’s that time again, around midnight and I can’t sleep. So I’m feeling inspirational as always and figured I should share my day with you.

Work was actually really good and low key this morning. Of course karma came then at highschool in the afternoon, but life goes on.

Yeah, that’s about all the inspiration I have at this hour..

Check out my latest article on

Hopefully I have a lot more to tell you about after my interview with Teena Cathey tomorrow as well.

Love you all!


Bad habits.

When I finally have time to breath, it’s so hard to decide what to do. When all I have left is to study a little and my homework has been put to bed. What’s left? I’m just academically drained and it doesn’t seem to matter any longer how hard I try. A 4.0 is simply delusional for this semester.

I’m not good at that many things. So when one of them fails I turn to the other? School sucks so what do I do? Shop.

But after all of the damage has been done lately through my Poshmark app, mall trips, etc. I am not proud to say I have $10.62. And I am still working at K-mart as hard as ever. Thank God I get paid tomorrow.

I have an ever expanding list of items such as Sequined Sperry Top Sider Boat Shoes, an iHome, my hair recolored n cut in a bob (how would you feel about my face with an inverted bob?), a floral blue skirt, and Pink Sparkly Toms to purchase and no money to reinforce the desire.

When I can’t do well in school or shop, I am left with one option.

And you are a victim of it.

I will write and write and write and rant and rant and rant and when I’m done being inspired by absolutely nothing I may resort to cleaning my room, but don’t push your luck.

I have an iPhone that can distract me from that.

Hahahaha. My dad, who is simply untechy because he’s part of that dad age range that is.. well untechnologically advanced is debating becoming part of the 21st century and buying an iPhone.

Picturing his little bald head on FaceTime is slightly priceless.

I have tons of laundry.


It’s the never ending To-do list, showing its face again.

I’m bringing Jenna to the store tonight to buy Crocs, she wants a pair of the unforgivable plastic/foam shoe. She has a yellow pair but the back strap came off and they can’t wear those in gym class if God forbid there isn’t a strap.

While she burns her 50 dollars of birthday money (which is more than I have, mind you) on those hideous shoes I will tease myself with Sperrys. I’m undecided as to what I will do with my money first when I get paid tomorrow, but whatever it is I better get the best therapy out of it.. because I need something to replace the terrible day I’ve had.

After I rant here I plan on ranting for my first article on Fashion Parkway. Where do I start though?! It’s always come so easy to me, ranting and raving at my own free will, especially when I am completely oblivious to who is reading this.. but on Fashion Parkway? They are ready have a large dedicated audience that I can impact and I feel like telling them what I had for breakfast will seem extremely tedious and insulting.

I’m sure I’ll have an epiphany as soon as I paint my nails. I have one hand of nails that are longer than the other. It’s extremely annoying, but I seem to only have the nervous habit of biting my nails on my right hand, so I need to paint my nails for 2 reasons:

1) I won’t bite them, as much.

2) I love seeing glittery nails flying across the keyboard.

And you know my nails will be glittery.


Wait until I have a credit card… I am terrible at math. Which is a danger in itself, but if I had a credit card? I could own every sparkly nailpolish desirable. And multiple pairs of Sperrys.

And speaking of nailpolish and foreign things, I have to go the salon to get my eyebrows done with  my remaining money tonight.

When my eyebrows grow out, I am forced to wear my glasses because they hide them a little. The curse of dark thick hair means I fall into this habit every 2 weeks. I refuse to tweeze them because I have the pain tolerance of a baby.

Phew. I feel better.

I hope everyone else has a great 4/20 tomorrow, no weed involved. Make smart decisions, buy something like perfume it smells better anyways.
