A Gift/My First Month as a Blogger

Today marks the end of my first month as a blogger, and I have absolutely loved it thus far.  When I first started, I didn't know what to expect, and hoped to have at least 25 public followers by the end of the first month.  That number quickly increased to 50 within a week or so, and then went to 100.  As of this morning when I woke up, I had 104 public followers.  I can not thank you all enough; I have felt so welcome into this blogging world and I feel so grateful to be a part of it.  So thank you, thank you, thank you.


When I came home last night, I was so excited to receive a package from my sweet friend, Hong.  She also does DIY projects, and she made me pom poms to wear on my Hermès Evelyne bag.  She also included the sweetest note to me that made me tear up.  The Hermès pom poms can be very expensive and Hong also has a DIY tutorial on her blog, which you can find here.   And she also sent me a pair of pom poms using some recycled Hermès ribbon, which is another creative idea that I had never thought of (tutorial here).  Hong's gift was so sweet that I couldn't wait to wear my Evelyne with the pom poms, so I paired my outfit today around it.  I chose to wear printed wide leg pants, and a chunky floral necklace to top the look off.  What do you guys think of my pairing?
