whew, people. Here’s a quick peak into what’s happening at my house to help provide this info for you!
most highly successful bloggers have a team to support them. why? because it’s more work than you can imagine.
meet my team:
molly: she’s going into 8th grade & is working hard to save up $ for a trip with her cousin & her friend and a new iPhone.
Charlotte: my daughter. who thinks she’s saving for an iPhone, but we are OK with this because by the time she has enough $ for it she’ll be 35. 🙂
Blogging takes an insane amount of time. No, don’t be silly, they don’t help me all the time. But for crunch time for bloggers, during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale they chip in for extra cash and I’m SO grateful!
a personal note from me
Here is my shameless plea – I’m obviously a one man band who has to call in elementary & middle school girls to help me. So that should make you understand my income level from blogging.
This blog has changed my life and brings me more joy than I ever dreamed. But it is a business and I spent a ton of time trying to provide the best content possible for you guys! It’s a journey and business that has filled a hole I didn’t know needed filling. But please note:
- I do receive a commission on sales you purchase via links on my blog.
- However, you have to use the link DIRECTLY from my blog otherwise I don’t get the commission.
- Example: Say I’m blogger A. You read my review of an item and want to buy it. But you wait to buy it until later. During that time you go to Blogger B. If you buy the product from their website then they get the commission. The same is true if you leave my website and go to, say cnn.com. You know how products magically appear that you were just looking at? Kind of creepy, right? If you click the product from cnn.com, then CNN gets the commission.
So my personal plea is that if you enjoy my blog, please come back to my blog and use the links I provide when making any purchase during the sale. It doesn’t even matter what you buy! This small commission supports my blogging bills.
- BOOKMARK my website if that helps you to come back for shopping links!
- Follow me on the LikeToKnowIt app on Instagram and use links I embed there.
- Use links from my emails, facebook, or direct messages!
Also, please email me at [email protected] or send me a message via social media if you need help with stuff. I’m here to help! Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. xxx, kelly

pretty classic everyday skinny pants from Vince | while these white Layfette pants didn’t fit my body type, I immediately saw them and pulled them off the rack they were so beautiful. 100% worth trying. gorgeous look, and we don’t all have the same body type so don’t let me sway you. pretty white pants for sure! |a great pair of trousers that have a built in tuck & life fabric! hello! great work outfit pant | ok truth? the reviews aren’t stellar on these pants. also the truth? I bought them because I love them. They have a “look” no doubt. I paired it with a very fitted ivory shell (nothing loose) and voila – a cool outfit that stood out from the crowd. Personally I think they are amazing and while I was in the store other people were eyeing and buying them. pink jogger pants | not a skinny leg lover? These straight pants with stretch knit look about as classic perfection as you can get! Pretty for sure.
