Hats for All? Hats for Fall!

Monday, September 28, 2015

I'm a lover of hats. Is this a known fact? If not, well, now you know!
I am borderline obsessed with having something on the top of my noggin, be it head chains, head scarves or a good ol' hat.

Fall is the hat season. And, now that it is officially fall, it's time to break out the hats and bask in their glory.

When I think of fall, I think of the color maroon, boots and wide brim hats. Blame it on the huge 70s trend that has taken over the last couple of years, or maybe it's my time working in retail, but big hats are here and big hats are here to stay. 

This is the kind of hat I think of when I think of the fall. This hat, on top of a fall outfit, just screams the season, and that's why it's such a fall hat. It protects your face from the sun, it hides a bad hair day, and they look good on anyone. It's total win for all parties.

Bowler hats sit closer to the head and take any outfit from boring to interesting.
I love adding bowler hats with an inherent feminine look to bring in some sort of manly dapper look. Paired with some sort of textured hair, this hat is the easiest to style!

Want the perfect hat to hide greasy roots? Beanies.
Want to make any outfit casual and chill? Beanies.
Beanies? Beanies. Be it the crocheted, open knit or otherwise, are the essential fall hat. They keep your head warm, they add volume to your head and they come in every variation of colors and styles ever. 

What's your favorite hat?

Glasses at GlassesShop

Do you like cheap glasses? Because I sure do. I don't like spending a lot of money and glasses, as vital as they are to me, are included in my frugality. So, I'm excited to share a new store with you all!
I was recently contacted by the crew at GlassesShop.com and was asked if I'd be interested in doing a product review. As a glasses wearer and lover of lenses, I of course said yes!

After searching over the pages and pages of sunglasses and prescription eyeglasses, I chose this pair, the Meriden Wayfarer. It's a lovely and large pair in a wooden grain, with a nice gold accent on the hinge; I love statement glasses so this was the perfect pair for me. 

The glasses are shipped in a box, with a durable glasses case. The case has a protective lining inside to keep the lenses scratch free, and the glasses also come with a microfiber cloth for lens cleaning.

I ordered the glasses on August 26th and received the glasses on September 14th. The ordering process was easy and painless, especially if you have your prescription handy. All you need is payment info, your prescription (if you have one) and you're good to go.

Would I recommend GlassesShop? Of course! With a wide array of styles for an affordable price, you can't go wrong!

GlassesShop has given me a coupon code to share with you all! Use the code GSHOT50 here to receive 50% off your pair of glasses! Also, you can get the first pair free!
 Disclaimer: I received product in return for a product review, however, all opinions are my own.

5 Things You Need to Know Before Starting a Blog

5 Things You Need to Know Before Starting a Blog! www.katielikeme.com #blogging #bloggingtips

Want to know what I get asked a lot?
"What are some tips for blogging?"
Why would someone ask me that?

Am I a million dollar blogger with thousands of loyal followers? 
 But, in my almost 4 years of blogging, I have learned a thing or two about what makes a blog and how to make one. With multiple failed blogs and multiple successful blogs, I have the knowledge to share, and, I'm going to share these 5 things about blogging that everyone should know before they start one!

People Will Not Flock

You're going to start off with 0 followers and how you change that is all on you.
Just because you created a blog doesn't necessarily mean people are going to instantly read it and follow it. You have to create a blog that is welcoming, eye-catching, and makes the reader want to stay for a while. When you can get the basics down is when you'll start to get followers.
Which brings me to the next one...

Followers Don't Prove Anything

Having followers is awesome! People who are subscribing to your content and want to see more is an exhilarating thing. But, your follower count doesn't prove anything. A higher follower count doesn't mean a better quality blog, and a lower follower count doesn't mean a lower quality blog. When blogging, you have to be doing it for yourself and not be thinking about the follower count.

Be Yourself, Be Real

Cue the after school special, these are the truest words to ever be said about blogging. You can put up a facade but after awhile, that curtain is going to fall and everyone is going to see the face behind the mask. Wouldn't you rather be upfront with your readers about who you are?
 People are more interested in other people than they are an illusion of perfection. No one is perfect, no one is cookie cutter, so let your niche flag fly, and let people know that you are truly you.

Give a Little to Get a Little

You gotta give your blog some love! A good theme, a well written about, true to you content--all these factors come in to play to creating a cohesive and well made blog. You have to put some soul into it and when you've combined your soul with your content, you're going to see that pay off with your readership.

You Can't Do it For the Money

If you're expecting to start a blog and make 6 figures, it's not going to happen. There is a distinct visible difference between a blog that exists for readers, and a blog that exists for profit. Making money is cool, and don't we all dream of making 6 figures, but, if you're blogging specifically to make money, you're going to find it more difficult. 

There are so many more valuable tips about starting a blog on the blogging tag on Pinterest. If you're interested in starting a lifestyle, food, or even fashion blog, that tag is the best for keeping you in check!

If you could give tips to prospective blogger, what would you say?
