Comments:
Today I went out to dinner with my two best friends for some much needed girl time. We had a wonderful time together (as usual); but today we said was a night of "Revelations". For some reason, each one of us confessed a secret tonight. I came clean to my friends and told them about my blog.

Yeah, that's right, none of my friends knew my blog even existed. I've kept it a secret for over two years now. I just felt like other people wouldn't understand my blog and my reasons behind it (I mean, taking pictures of yourself everyday really sounds like a vain thing to do).

But my friends, being as awesome as they always are, were very understanding and happy that I told them about my blog. I'm so happy that I can now share this experience with them and that they accept me just the way I am. They are the best friends I could have ever wished for :)

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this top:

  2. Gorgeous skirt! Love all the bright colors. My friends knew of my blog since I started and they have all been accepting of it. :)

  3. You look like a lovely little flower! That green skirt is the perfect color and is so flowy and fun! 

    That's exciting about telling your friends about your blog. Mine still don't know about it. Actually, just yesterday, I told one of my friends about it and she thought it was cool. I was so happy she didn't think it was weird!

  4. The colors of this outfit make me think of watermelon. :) You look beautiful! I'm glad you had a good time and came clean about the blog. It's not vain at all (at least not for most of us!). :)

  5. I LOVE this skirt. that first photo of you is fantastic. It took me about 6 months before I told anyone I knew about my blog. My mother & sister both found it by accident, but one mildly drunk night I told my friends 'I'm totally blogging this' and they were all like 'Wait what?'
    They do not make fun of me because they do not understand what exactly I am doing. I don't think non-blog people really get it. But at least your friends were supportive and nice about it. Good for you for finally letting it all hang out. (Although sometimes it feels nice to have a secret :)

  6. Yay! good for you Marie :)
    Like you my blog is a secret..... I've had it for almost 3 years and think they will think I am vain and will not understand what's the point behind it all. I think you have to be a blogger to "get it".
    I think it's great that now they will share this too.

  12. Yeah, I am embarrassed about mine too, for the same reasons. I mean, what sort of grown woman does that? And then my hubby told a bunch of my friends one night. Turned out none of them really cared. Sounds like yours are supportive!

  13. I've found that no one really cares about the fact that I blog or not, I think most people that I tell IRL don't even read it or pay attention that way I thought they might which is fine. They are friends with me not my blog although, I was just as apprehensive about spilling the beans as well.
