Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me #15 Link

December 16, 2014

Hello and welcome to the 15th link up for Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me. I want to thank the numerous new and come back bloggers who linked up last week, there were so many awesome and inspiring posts that it was hard to choose my favorite 5 to feature today. I hope you will enjoy those featured today and meet some other lovely ladies linked up. I wanted to also report that this will be the last link up of 2014. You can still link up and come back next Tuesday to see my featured 5 ladies but I just won’t have a link up widget up next Tuesday. I want you to be able to enjoy the Holidays and New Years coming. As I mentioned in this post here I will be taking a break for most of the month of January but will resume blogging again in either late or early February. I can’t wait to read what you link up today!

Here are my favorites from last weeks link up-



Heather of linked up a very intriguing post on how she thrifted her sweatshirt and then created the gems design on it. Her idea was to spend less money creating something trendy than spending butt loads of money on something similar sold in the stores. Hop on over to this post here to see how she did. Doesn’t her look just remind you of the 90’s grunge? Hello Claudia, Noami, etc.
Holiday Mason Jar 13
Jill of linked up an adorable DIY holiday décor project under the cost of $5. She created these adorable mason jar holiday scenes décor that I think you will enjoy trying for yourself, I know I will. You can check out what she did and materials here.

Hannah of linked up a beautiful holiday dress that I think is just stunning for those already here or coming holiday events, plus who doesn’t want to party unless in some glam and sparkle. You can view the entire outfit post here.

Leanne of linked up a fun Aztec printed cardigan and boots combo that I just loved. I have been looking into getting ankle booties in this same color so of course her look inspired me with just one of the many ways to style my future tan or camel colored booties. I also like how she added a dresser look to her outfit with the lovely statement necklace.  You can view her post here.

Ashley of linked up a nice review of her new L’egg pantyhose and I reminisced to my younger days where these were THE PANTYHOSE in my families household so I believe in them. I don’t wear pantyhose much anymore (I am a leggings girl what can I say) but I just though Ashley looked lovely as she made a summery look go fall/pre-winter with just the touch of ankle booties and long sleeved shirt. You can view her review and post here.

**Before you start linking up I want to acknowledge Ariana W, as the winner of my 1 year blogiversary, 500 plus instagram follower giveaway last Tuesday. She won a $10 Starbucks giftcard, bracelets and homemade apple butter.  Thank you to all who entered.

    Thank you for adding me on Instagram! I had “lost” your blog. Somehow I missed that you moved to WordPress, so instead I kept on visiting your Blogger website and saw that there is no active blog anymore.
    Good to see you didn’t stop blogging and it was just my own stupidity haha 😉
    Will drop in more often again now that I know where to find your blog!
