Holy Cow, did you realize next week is the American Thanksgiving? Even better did ya realize its time to deck the halls and get your falalala on? Nov 15th and in only 39 days it will be Christmas Eve. Do you get as excited as I do? Enough about that let’s focus on the here and now. Today is #201 for A Labour of Fashion, that is still insane to me. Almost as insane as hitting over 10000 on Instagram but I did it. And know what I let out a little Elle Woods squeal when i say that.

Instagram over 10,000
True confession, a lot of people have sent a note saying congrats and what’s your secret. Well truth be told no secret just a lot of friggin hard work. Lots of actual true following, commenting and liking. One thing I did not do, giveaway loops. I tried that a few years ago and all it showed, was follow,unfollow at extreme.
Honestly the giveaway loops, unless you are a weekly sponsor dry up and they leave you. Plus is that really any different than buying or getting a company? Now I am not judging in any way, to each his own I say. If I could buy a loyal following I probably would, sure would save time. My advise to you, do unto others that’s what counts. Like, comment, follow and they to will follow.
Get Social when Blogging
Some days I wish I could just get back to daily blog posts. Remember the days where you wrote what you wanted. Posted for you and the sheer joy. No worries of ads or views or numbers, just because you loved it.
Social Media sucked some of the fun from the social. I still love insta and pinterest, all of them actually. I just wish I wasn’t always so focused on the blog and would enjoy the sheer social delight. No more pity party though cuz I still love what I do.
The only thing I sometimes regret is how much time social takes. Sure does interfere with my blog visits. I want to get back to commenting and sharing your posts not just mine.
Fall Poncho and Distressed Denim
I stole this poncho from my Mom. No idea where she got it but I loved it. Its warm and cozy and so Fall appropriate. Today I threw it over my Old Navy Boyfriend jeans and some cool boots. It’s my walking in the woods enjoying a warmish Fall day. Add a long sleeve sweater or tee underneath and I am set for the day,
Now remember what I just said about this poncho? Well apparently I do know where she got it. When I went on Amazon to find something similar guess what I found? Yep the poncho for 14.00. WTH. So you don’t need to steal one from your Mom, you can get it here, easy peazy. I actually like the collar better on this new version.
