Blush Chiffon Dress on a Carnival Cruise and my 1000th post

Blush Chiffon Dress from H&M with my Happiness Boutique Necklace

Happy Thursday Folks and other than the fact it has been a combination of snow and freezing rain since I got home, and the fact I am no longer on vacation and the fact that I am now back to work and the fact that winter is still here, its Thursday  a day to link up to my Labour of Fashion and a day to celebrate my 1000th post….. holy crap can you even imagine 1000 posts since I started. August 2013, less than three years and I have 1000 posts, now that has to be a pretty special reason to celebrate, snow be darned right?

And how great is it that I also get to celebrate in this amazing dress that I wore on the Carnival Conquest? and in pictures not taken by me but taken by Kent hmmmm this could become a habit.

On a serious note if you had told me when I started that I would still be blogging 1000 posts later I would have called you crazy and never once did I imagine where this crazy blog world would take me.  The amazing blog friends I have made, the learning that has happened, the conferences, the events, the confidence… so many amazing things all in such a short time.

This dress you have seen before ( maybe here and here) but this time I opted away from Silver accessories and an updo. I choose to wear my Happiness Boutique Necklace and my new shoes from Shoe Dazzle.

So back to my 1000th post, I really feel I should be marking this special occasion with something more than just a mention. If I had not been on vacation maybe I could have organized a huge giveaway, found something spectacular you all would be  just itching to receive….hmmm something I think I will work on over the next few days. so stay tuned for the possibility of an amazing giveaway to help me celebrate and in the meantime don’t forget to link up and before I forget stop by tomorrow to help me celebrate Johnny Cash’s Birthday with an amazing free gift for all of you.
