You tell me & Link up

March 1, 2016


I am so excited you guys! Why? Because of what I revealed yesterday. I AM JUST THAT THRILLED! This little blog has been an awesome adventure so far and it is great to pursue it further and grow it, and because of that I want to grow my content. I figured to grow my content based on the needs and wants of my readers I thought I would ask you to tell me what you want?

What do you want to read more of? Is it that “How to style Chambray top?” or cute mommy and daughter post, or tips on blogging and more?

How can I help you? Do you want to know how to grow in an area of blogging, or do you want to figure out how to wear something?

These questions were the basis for a survey I created to help me better serve you, with content you want more of, less of or love. So you tell me. Just 6 simple questions and BAM I will know!

Take the survey here

Below are some examples of favorite contents you have seen on here that I am proud to share more of if you tell me:

Style Tips:




Mommy & Me Style: 



Hubby & Wife Style:



Outfit post:



Blogging Tips:









Again, thank you for your time taking the survey if you have. I want to better serve you through my content and am open to any suggestions or ideas or future collaborations.

Speaking of thoughts, I loved the message this awesome lady has to speak on motherhood and the truth in it. Mom’s treat your self to this post.


This little striped blouse and spring color palette look from Kacie was too cute and worth a try when I receive a similiar blouse. See post here.

    That was great idea to ask your readers what they want to read from you. I love your post about blogging for example. And maybe it will be great to have more hubby and wife style. o)

  • Sheela Goh March 1, 2016 at 2:11 pm

    Oh. Oh. Wow. Rachel, thank you so very much!! I always write what and how I feel, and often, I wonder if I’m touching on a topic no one else is interested in, or a topic which no one really wants to talk about, or worse, am I sharing too much? Are we expected to portray just the good bits and/or only the challenges which have happy endings? I’m so glad you enjoyed my piece, and I can’t thank you enough for showcasing it. Thank you!!!

    I also wanted to say that in terms of your blog content, I find myself gravitating towards your posts which focus on blogging tips because they always come across as being genuine and realistic. They’re not coming from someone who’s so high up on the food chain that you question the validity of their tips, as in, do they even remember how it was to start from ground zero? I realise I’m generalising and there ARE some really famous bloggers who are so incredibly generous with sharing their knowledge but they’re few and far between. Which makes me appreciate you even more 🙂

  • Laura March 1, 2016 at 2:32 pm

    Sounds like you have exciting things to come! Having a supportive hubby is SO important no matter what you are doing!

  • Michelle March 1, 2016 at 5:49 pm

    I always love reading blogging tips & seeing outfit posts

  • Petite Silver Vixen March 1, 2016 at 6:21 pm

    Like Sheela, for the reasons she says, I value your blogging tips. Exciting times ahead for you Rachel. Congrats to your hubby for the new job.

  • Jalynn Schroeder March 1, 2016 at 7:40 pm

    Thanks for sharing my post!! 🙂 And congrats to your new adventures with your family!! Those moments are always so exciting!


  • Tianna March 2, 2016 at 10:36 am
