AND THE WINNER IS....

PRETTY PINK RAT!

The extra entries must have paid - yay for the odds! Hope you enjoy your Famous Footwear gift card, please email me and I'll pass your info on to the reps at Famous Footwear (btw THANK YOU FF for having such a cool giveaway!).

All right, so last week actually ended up being the complete week from hell for me. I don't even want to get into it but by the time 830 AM rolled around each morning I had already had the worst day ever. And when you have the worst day ever - by 830 AM - you know it can only get worse, especially as it did get worse as the days went on. After awhile, I started thinking that God was playing a cruel joke on me of sorts...it was that bad.

Anyway, I don't want to get into it but after a week of tears and hair-pulling and wondering what the hell is life all about (don't ask, I was uber sensitive too), I ended up having a lovely weekend camping and most of all, I took a much-needed break from blogging.

I realize it would probably be for me if I did slow down my blogging a bit...I did miss it eventually, but everyday is pretty tough, especially when I have a lot of other "more important" stuff to do on the side.

One of the said things is this (THE NEWS):

In order to raise funds for my upcoming month-long trip to New Zealand and get some financial support while I concentrate on writing, I have decided to launch my online store.

This baby has been in the planning stages for month's now but I need money - I don't have money to spend on a website, nor to invest in wholesale clothes.

So I decided to work with the concept that I had - a store/website that combined my love of travel with my love of clothes - and just launch it in Blogger (free!) and with my own clothes (also free!).

And thus, WANDERLUSTING STYLE is born.

I don't have everything up there right now, so please note that there will be Vintage Clothes, More Dresses, Belts, Shoes, Coats, Skirts, Tops, Bags etc being uploaded over the next few weeks. But I at least have the gist of it down.

So have fun, peruse the site, learn somethings and for heaven's sake BUY SOMETHING! Lol but also not kidding :P To make the deal even sweeter, I'm offering all followers of my store, Wanderlusting Style, 10% off all purchases made during August.

That 10% can be combined with the 10% you would get if you linked my store to your blog (and made a note of it being an actual store/travel blog) or the 15% you would get if you make a featured post about me and my store. Cuz I could use the publicity.

Come say hello and buy stuff such as this ASOS dress:

Underfunded Heiress said...

Just went to your shop and became a follower. Where is that navy dress located at? I will look again but I'm late for work :)

Anika said...

Yay, for lustworthiness....g'luck with the funding bella. I too need to set up an online store to sell off all of my unloved shoes...I've come to a point where I can unashamedly say I have too many pairs of shoes.

Hope NZ is treating you well....off now to check out your store, gorgeousness!

Look after yourself and enjoy and relax from blogging :)
