Hey beautiful people!
Four years ago this month I opened a blog to justify my shopaholic tendencies back then. And boy when we talk about growth, have we come a long way! I have a giveaway too so stick to the end! 

Today I decided to celebrate in this mixed prints number featuring my vintage shirt worn backward, floral box pleated skirt and my block heels black pointed pumps.

Note: The pink highlight words are links

"Sigh" Where do I even begin?
It's been an up a down ride really, one filled with both happy times, lots a fashion, passion, inspiration and of course frustration. I'll never regret starting this blog even though more times than not, I ask myself "who sent you Sarah" Though, what would I do without this blog and you guys. For one I'd sleep more, save money on the Internet of course, probably spend more time at home too but then where's all the fun in that. 

I've gone through some of my hardest and best moments here. Thank God for this platform that kept me busy while I was unemployed and living in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea. That sense of purpose at that time was much needed. When I  graduated from University, got  my first job and then got fired and actually learned something about it, this blog was there. Through NYSC, my trip to Obudu Cattle Ranch, Cross River State and even my most recent testimony of getting the job. I'll never regret the decision to start this blog. 

I won't lie though, the pressure can get real at times hence my reason for almost quitting by hey I'm still here for a reason huh.
