Hello lovelies! My week was such a total whirlwind that I didn't even have time to take many pictures this week. Sad, I know. The previous weekend was filled with camping, and Tuesday and Wednesday were filled with work, which is also where I am all day today.
So, I decided to do a little different post today. A "recap of me"! I always love reading these kinds of posts about other bloggers, and I haven't done one like this in such a while. I'm hoping my new readers (and old ones!) will enjoy it!

What I Blog About:
I started out blogging as a DIY blogger, but that changed the longer I blogged! I now blog about fashion, beauty, my everyday life, and DIY's! I participate in a lot of link ups that include Trending Tuesdays, What I Wore Wednesdays, Weekending Recaps on Mondays, and Friday Favorites on the weekend!
How it All Started:
I stumbled upon Kate's blog - The Small Things Blog - on pinterest when looking for hair styles for my wedding. And I just kind of started randomly following along. I loved her blog a ton. I had been working as a night shift nurse for 2 years, and got bored a lot when I was up at the wrong hours. So I thought "I could just try this and see how it goes, right??" And the rest is history! I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I do, and it has led to my etsy shop opening up (Made In The Shade Shop), which is also a fun hobby of mine!
I started out with a different blog name, one that I didn't give a ton of thought to. When I wanted to open my Etsy shop, I realized I would need to rebrand and be a little more official. So I invested in a web page design, and decided on a new name!
Made In The Shade Blog really has been a perfect fit for me. A lot of my readers know me for my craftiness, and this name just seemed to suit that!
My Favorite Blogs to Follow Now:
I follow a TON of bloggers. But I love these girls' blogs - I read them pretty much on a daily basis! They each inspire me in a different way to keep my blogging going! You need to check them out ASAP!
