A Love Letter from Being Mrs. Fowler

I am going to be perfectly honest with you, today was rough.

IMG_4657

My engagement has been terrible on Instagram, my students were a little on the wild side, and I am getting sick again. Second time losing my voice this year. I am just done.

In moments like this, it is so easy to get down, depressed and discouraged. I found myself dwelling on so many things that I really didn’t have control over. Things that, in the grand scheme of things, really don’t matter.

IMG_4686

IMG_4707

I don’t know why I care so much about little things like engagement on my Instagram posts or how many people comment on my pictures, but I do. I am only human and we live in a society that is literally run by social media. It is no wonder we get frustrated. I saw a quote today that really got my wheels spinning. It said, “Social media is training us to compare our lives, instead of appreciating everything we are. No wonder why everyone is depressed.”

Wow…

How true is that statement?

IMG_4723

IMG_4703

We are comparing our lives to people’s best days. To people’s perfect pictures.

Do you really think that is how their life is the majority of the time? I can promise you that their lives are not even like that on a daily basis. They are staged, brightened, smoothed and edited. And even though I know this, I still find myself comparing my life to everyone I see. I get frustrated when I don’t have as many followers, jealous of their designer handbags, and just envious of their “perfect” lives.

The great Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.”

Again I will say it… Wow!

How easily we let ourselves forget this quote from just a truly inspirational leader. I can say this because I am constantly forgetting. I am constantly comparing myself to others. It is no wonder we get down and depressed.

IMG_4669

IMG_4672

So now I get to the love letter portion of this post. I am here to tell you that I think that you are enough. I think that your life is beautiful in all of its messy glory. I love your sink full of dishes, your pile of unfolded laundry, and your no-makeup face. And do you know why I love all of these things? Because my life is the same way!

Truth time!

I maybe wash clothes once a week but, more often than not, it is really like every two weeks. I wash my hair only once a week and only look decent because of dry shampoo. On an almost daily basis I put myself in bed at a decent time but don’t fall asleep until 11 because I am surfing the internet, and then I proceed to hit snooze 17 times the next morning because I am too tired to wake up. I never make up my bed and I put Vivi in bed with me on Saturday morning so she can watch cartoons while I sleep. It’s not bad parenting or bad adulting, it is just real life. A real life that, amidst all the mess, is beautiful because it is all mine.

IMG_4725

IMG_4741

The same can be said for you and your life. It is beautiful, in all of its messy glory, because it is all yours and nothing or no one can take that away from you. I love it and you should as well! I love everything about you and I am so thankful for your support. I love that you take time out of your busy lives to like and comment on my pictures. I love that you take the time to read my blog posts. I love that you view my Instastories. You know what? I just love you!

You are the reason why I continue to post. You are the reason why I press on. You are what makes all the hard work, time and effort so worthwhile.

This Valentine’s Day I am so thankful for you. I encourage you to show yourself a little love today because your definitely deserve it!

A Valentine’s Inspo

It seems like yesterday we were celebrating New Years and now here we are, already half way through February. February is always a busy month but one thing I am always happy to make time for is Valentine’s Day.

While I firmly believe that you don’t really need a day to show someone how much you love them, it is always nice to get dressed up and celebrate on a day just for love.

The great thing about Valentine’s Day is that it is no longer just for couples. It can be a day to spend with your best girlfriends, a day to celebrate your children, a day to show yourself some love, and, of course, a day to spend with your significant other. I have put together three different outfits to serve as some inspiration for your Valentine’s festivities and I know that one of them will work for whatever you have planned!

A Little Self Love

For my first look, I went with a casual vibe, perfect for hanging out and showing yourself a little self love. Whether you are shopping, treating yourself to a manicure, or indulging in your favorite dessert, this is the perfect cute and casual look. I decided to feature two of the biggest styles of this season, chenille and velvet. I love the mix of textures and these colors give off the girliest vibes. My favorite part of the whole look would have to be this super fun Kate Spade tote. It is so roomy! I can put all of my essentials, as well as Vivi’s, and still have room to spare. I finished off the look with my favorite pair of stud booties and the cutest little tassel earrings. This look is the perfect mix of cute and casual and will keep you both festive and comfy!

Galentine’s Day Celebration

For my next look, I went with bright colors and a fun print that would be great for a night out with your Girlfriends. Sometimes a Valentine’s Day is best spent with all of those fabulous ladies in your life. Grabbing drinks, dancing the night away and just spending time with the people that always have your back really does sound like an amazing way to spend Valentine’s Day. The print on this jumpsuit was just gorgeous. I was instantly drawn to the colors as soon as I saw it in the store. I pulled out the pink with this fun, velvet blazer. I finished off the look with my newest clutch from the Studio DIY Can’t Clutch This subscription, because everyone knows that Pizza is the real MVP on Valentine’s Day!

A Night Out With My Hunny

For my final look, I went full glam, perfect for a night out with my Hubby. I was really inspired by my friend Mireille over at City Peach. She recently posted the cutest tulle cape and sequin socks and I was in love. After seeing her post I went and ordered my own cape and sequin socks. At the time, I had no idea when I would actually get to wear them but while pulling outfits for this post, I knew that would be perfect for this fun Valentine’s look. I love any excuse to dress up and these two items really gave my look the perfect finishing touch for a night out. I paired the items with the cutest little blush dress. This dress was an H&M find that I found on sale for $6! I couldn’t believe my luck. The dress had a looser fit so I cinched the waist with a cute belt. So I could wear the socks, I picked a classic pair of suede booties and then finished my look with gorgeous, blush tassel earrings. And because no look is complete without a little Megan whimsy, I added another fun Kate Spade bag. This little penguin is all dressed up and ready for his night out as well! This look was so much fun and I just loved spinning around in the little tulle cape.

I hope that you enjoyed all of my Valentine’s outfits! I am sure that one of these ideas will work for whatever you have planned, or at least give you some ideas for what to style from your own closet! The best thing about every piece was that I found it already in my closet! Nothing was bought for these pictures and it was so much fun, and a challenge, to put together outfits using items that I already owned! I encourage you to shop your own closet and do the same. Let me know if you go with any of my suggestions. I would love to see what you style for your Valentine festivities! I always love hearing from you!

A Capsule Wardrobe with Agnes & Dora

My life is busy… it is simple as that.

While I absolutely love clothes and putting together outfits, sometimes I am too rushed for time to put together something extradinary. In these moments, I need something that is both cute and comfortable and I can easily put together. Luckily I discovered Agnes & Dora. I was contacted by the super sweet Melissa, an Agnes & Dora consultant. I was intrigued because I had never heard of the brand before and was anxious to give it a try. I was immediately drawn to her brand because she has named her online boutique, Joli in Mel’s Boutique. Joli is french for pretty and what woman does not want to feel pretty?!

She allowed me to pick a few things to style for all of you and I decided to play on the idea of a capsule wardrobe. As I was browsing the pieces, I noticed that many of them were super versatile and could be worn together or separately. I picked items that I knew would look great alone, or would look amazing layered with other pieces.

IMG_1326

IMG_1286

IMG_1319

For my first piece, I chose the Blue Soft Denim Curie Dress. This dress looks like denim but is so much softer. It hugs your body in all the right places and really puts a skip in your step. I loved they way that it moved with every step I took. I decided to really keep the dress the main focus of my outfit and paired it with a simple pair of booties, a classic pair of tassel earrings, and one of my favorite red, plaid Kate Spade handbags.

IMG_1356

IMG_1349

IMG_1358

For my next look, I decided to keep the Curie Dress on, because Hello, it’s so cute, and layer it with the Vegan Angora Duster in Olive. This duster was such a great color so I knew that I would be able to wear it with so many things that were already in my closet. Olive really is a neutral. The material of the duster is very light weight so you get a little extra warmth without feeling constricted. It could easily be work in the Spring without any problem. I added one of my favorite Kendra Scott necklaces and changed up my boots and handbag.

IMG_1371

IMG_1375

IMG_1361

I decided to try one more look with the Curie Dress but this time I was really going to make it a fun outfit. To do that I added the You Give Love a Plaid Name Leggings. My Mom has always said that plaid is her favorite color and I think I have to agree that it is one of my favorites as well. It is such a fun, classic print that really brings life to any outfit. I layered the leggings underneath the dress for a pop of color and a more modest look. I threw on one of my favorite blazers, a Goodwill Southeast Georgia find, added a classic pair of booties, and a fun pair of tassel earrings

IMG_1400

IMG_1405

IMG_1414

For my last look, I wanted something completely different. I decided to go with the Earhart Dress in Mauve because it looked incredibly soft and comfortable. I loved the color and knew that I would easily be able to match it with so much in my closet. I did not layer anything with this dress because I really wanted it to stand alone. The fit was so flattering and the material really came to life as I walked. I cannot even begin to tell you just how soft this dress is making it beyond comfortable. I paired it with a fun pair of earrings and rich, burgundy booties to give this look a finishing touch.

Since adding these pieces to my wardrobe I have been able to style them countless ways. The dresses look great with a kimono or denim jacket while the leggings look super cute with an oversized sweater. My favorite way to wear the duster is with a crisp, white oxford and jeans, but it also looks adorable with a tank and shorts. The options are truly limitless. I encourage to go visit Melissa and check out her current stock or pop on over to her Facebook page or Instagram and just say Hello. I can promise you that you will not be disappointed!

Tired Eyes No More

If you have been following me for a while, you know that my plate is beyond full. As a Kindergarten teacher by day, busy Wife and Mother at night, and blogging as much as possible in my free time, you can imagine that I am quite exhausted on a regular basis.

IMG_5052

IMG_5057

Being exhausted means that I am often left with dark circles underneath my eyes. Having naturally fair skin, they can appear quite dark causing me to look both tired and older. It really makes days without makeup not possible. Luckily, I have found an amazing solution to those tired eyes that takes little to no work on my part.

The VII Code Oxygen Eye Masks for Dark Circles is an eye mask that is designed to be worn over night without any redness or irritation. There is a cooling sensation as soon as the mask is placed on your skin that is instantly soothing for tired eyes.

IMG_5059

IMG_5062

The amazing ingredients located inside each eye mask works to increase blood flow to the skin, as well as improve circulation for younger looking skin. The boost of oxygen combats wrinkles and helps to correct over-pigmentation. All ingredients together leave you with plumped, smooth skin, perfect for that youthful glow. Each box comes with 6 sets of masks, which is more than enough to get your started and really fight the early signs of aging.

IMG_5063

IMG_5064

The first time using the masks, I only wore them for about an hour, just to see how my skin would react. I experienced no problems, which is amazing, because I have very sensitive skin. The next time I wore them over night and I woke up looking more rested than I had in a while. There was no dark circles present and the skin around my eyes appeared to be glowing. No highlighter was needed that day!

IMG_5070

IMG_5074

In all, I was very pleased with my results. It was a product that I enjoyed using and will definitely be using again. I love the fact that it was easy to apply and it was not something that had to be done daily. I can do it as little or as often as I like. The company also offers an eye cream that I am thinking about trying because, lets face it, I am not getting any younger!

The area around your eyes is the most sensitive, as well as the thinnest layer of skin on your body. That means that it will be the first area to show signs of aging. If you are over 18, you should definitely be using a good eye cream and once you hit 30, it is not longer recommended, but a necessity. This is the only skin we are given so we might as well take care of it so we look young as long as we possibly can!

A Taste of Spring: Kendra Scott Spring 2018

Ooops She Did it Again!

I thought it wasn’t possible for me to love a Kendra Scott collection as much as I loved the last one but Kendra the Queen has proved me wrong. The Spring 2018 collection is full of romantic hues, delicate details, and fun geometric shapes. Straight from the Kendra Scott website, “From shell and acrylic fringe to the creative use of negative space, this season is a thoughtful blend of color and texture that feels beautifully unexpected.” I am sharing some of my favorites and this seasons must-haves so go ahead and snag them before they are gone! Things are selling out quick and this is definitely a collection that you do not want to miss! Take a peek with me and I am sure that you will find something that you need to add to your collection!

IMG_4264

As always, the event to celebrate the launch was full of sweet treats, a little bubbly and a whole lot of glam. In true Kendra fashion, shopping was a done for a cause and a portion of all proceeds were donated to The Humane Society of Savannah. I love knowing that my money is going to support and amazing organization, right in my own community!

Happy 3rd Birthday Being Mrs. Fowler: The 3 Most Important Things I Have Learned in Blogging

Since a new year has started, that means that we need to celebrate!

Why you ask?

Well that is because my little blog just turned 3!

Happy Blogiversary Being Mrs. Fowler!!

IMG_4030

IMG_4019

IMG_4031

It is crazy to think that I have been able to call this little corner of the internet my own for three whole years. It has a been a crazy journey full of highs and lows but one thing has remained constant. I love the journey.

Starting my blog was a long time coming. I can’t tell you how many times I actually sat down and attempted to write my first post. But one night, New Years Eve to be exact, I was up late, not able to sleep, and I took the plunge. That very first post went live on New Years Day of 2016 and the rest is history. While I had every intention of my blog being mostly about fashion, with the occasional lifestyle post or DIY thrown in, that quickly changed because two weeks after starting this journey I found out I was pregnant with Vivi. Due to the fact that I was always tired and super sick, my blog became a source for “bumpdates” for friends and family and a way to share maternity style with my readers. While it was not my original intention, if fit my life for that first year and I love looking back on the memories, especially those that included my baby belly and precious newborn.

IMG_3766

IMG_3786

IMG_3691

Looking back, a lot has changed since that first year. I am more confident in front of the camera, a have a standing with many well-known brands and I started working with a professional photographer. Over the years the changes have been essential to build Being Mrs. Fowler into what she is today. Through all of this, I have learned so much. There is a reason that I keep on pushing and keep on persevering. I love what I do. This corner of the internet has become my voice. It is way to communicate what I am thinking and how I am feeling. It is a way to build a relationship with all of you, my beautiful readers. So, in honor of my three year blog anniversary, I want to share with you the three most important things that I have learned in blogging.

IMG_3726

IMG_4064

IMG_3846

1. Remember Your Why

It is very easy to get overwhelmed with blogging. For me, it is just a hobby so I have to find time to balance it between teaching, Mom Life and other responsibilities. Sometimes my plate is beyond full and I have a hard time managing everything. Often times, I feel obligated to write on my blog or post on my Instagram and that can become very stressful. In those moments I have to tell myself to take a deep breath and “Remember My Why.” Why did I start my blog? Why do I continue? Why do I strive to do better? The reason is simple. Because I love it. It is my hobby, my passion, and I have loved every aspect of the journey. I try to remind myself that I shouldn’t get worked up or stressed out over something I am passionate about. I shouldn’t let my hobby be the cause of feeling over whelmed. There is no point in continuing with something that you allow to fill your life with stress. If you feel that way, then I encourage you to take a step back, take a break and remember why you started blogging in the first place. I can promise you that you will be left with a renewed spirit and a clarity to push on. If you don’t get that, then maybe you should take a break. Unless your blog is your full time job, you should never let it become the main source of your stress. It is important to stay focused and only continue if you still enjoy every aspect of the journey.

IMG_3696

IMG_3861

2. Know Your Worth

As my blog and social media presence have grown, I find more and more brands reaching out to work with me. At first, since I was growing, I was happy to accept product in exchange for a post. Now that I have grown, I realize that my time and opinion is of worth. I took the time to figure out my rates and now request that a brand compensate me for time. Looking back, I wish that I had requested for brands to pay me from the beginning. My time is important and it takes time to work with brands. By the time that I put together content, have photographs taken, edit my photographs, write a post and put in appropriate SEO, I am looking at 5-6 hours of work. That is a lot of time when you think about how much I already have on plate. It never hurts to request that a brand pay you for your time. Sometimes they will say they do not have a budget for compensation. At that point, it will be up to you decide if you want to continue with the collaboration. If I really like the product or brand, sometimes I will continue, but here lately, I find myself turning away brands who are not willing to pay. My time is worth something and I want brands to know that I value myself and the work that I create.

If you are new to blogging, I encourage you to take the time to figure out your rate and stick to it. You will make yourself more valuable in the long run and build a relationship with brands that value your time and what you do.

IMG_3759

IMG_3710

3. Never Be Afraid to Ask

A lot of the work in blogging comes from reaching out to brands and pitching an idea. Here lately, I have made more of an effort to reach out to different brands in hopes that they will want to work with me. I realized that the worse they can say is “No.” What I have found is that if you pitch a quality idea, especially one that relates to your brand and your audience, a brand is most likely going to say “Yes!” I recently acquired my first collaboration with a hotel and it all came from me asking if they would take a chance and work with me. Personally, I value the opinion of smaller bloggers because I know that their opinion is genuine. Most of them are not being paid for the collaboration so they are working with the brand because they genuinely like the product or business. Most of the time, they also sought out this collaboration instead of the brand reaching out to them. In the world of blogging, the willingness to take a stand and reach out to a brand is worth something. Brands see that willingness and are most likely going to take a chance on you. If not, don’t let that be a discouragement. Continue to reach out and put yourself out there. You will only be gaining more skill and experience. I can promise that with a little hard work, dedication, and a killer pitch, eventually, someone is going to say “Yes” and take a chance on you!

I hope that these tips help you as much as they have helped me. With each of these, I wish that someone had taken the time to tell me these things in the beginning. They are so important for knowing your worth and building a brand that you can be proud to stand behind. With a little time and dedication, each of of these tips will help you to reach your goals and build a firm foundation in your blog.

Thank you so much for following along on this journey with me! I am so grateful for your continued support! As always, let me know if you have any questions in the comments below. I always love to hear from you!

2017: A Year in Review

Wow! 2017 was definitely one for the books! As I think back on this year, I can’t help but be proud of all that I accomplished! I had so many great opportunities, collaborated with some amazing companies and really built my brand. I grew so much as a person and really learned a lot about who I was and what I wanted for my life. I just wanted to share a few amazing highlights with you!

Goodwill Week

Throughout 2017, I really built a partnership with my local Goodwill. I think that it is so important to shop small. What makes Goodwill even better is that the money goes right back into the community. Not only this, but they provide jobs and resources to the community to help find jobs, teach business skills, and even dress for an interview. While I was able to work with them on many different things, one of my favorite things that I was able to do was dress Renee LaSalle for an entire week. Renee was an anchor at one of our local news stations on the show The Bridge. Every day on air she wore a different outfit picked out by me from Goodwill. I was even an air with her the first day of Goodwill Week to help kick off all of the fun and bring awareness to such an amazing week. We also hosted a Kendra Gives Back party at our local Kendra Scott! Here is a look back on some of the photos from that week:

BeYOUtiful Girls Event with Goody’s 

Another amazing event that I was able to be a part of was the BeYOUtiful Girls Event with my local Goody’s, a part of the Stage Stores family. A few weeks before the event I hosted a round of giveaways to get people excited and raise awareness for the event. On the day of the event, I was able to give a beauty demonstration on my everyday makeup routine and share my personal style with all attendees. The best part about this event was that a portion of all proceeds went to Safe Shelter, a local shelter that helps women who have been victim of domestic violence. I was also able to connect with two other amazing bloggers, City Peach and Awed by Monica, who I have stayed in touch with a now consider a friend. Here are a few photos from that fun event:

Marley Lilly

Another amazing opportunity that I was blessed with this year was the chance to work with Marley Lilly. As a true Southern girl, I firmly believe that everything looks better with a monogram. As a long-time shopper of this adorable brand, I was thrilled when they reached out to me to collaborate. They truly are the sweetest company and allow you to style their products to fit your personality. At Christmas, I was even able to do a Marley Lilly Gift Guide, where I was able to share my favorite items, perfect for gifting! I was even able to give a few of them as gifts! Be sure to check out both blog posts, my gift guide and some fall favorites, that I wrote in collaboration with Marley Lilly and check out a few of my favorite products from our collabs:

Fashion at your PACE

I was beyond excited when a local lighting company, Pace Lighting, reached out to me with an idea to host a shopping event hosted by yours truly. Working together, we were able to get many local Savannah businesses on board to set up pop-up shops and allow people to shop, be pampered and enjoy good food and even better company. At this event we were also able to do some good and a portion of all proceeds were donated to Safe Shelter. I loved seeing all of our hard work come together to support such an amazing cause. It was so nice to not only support local Savannah businesses, but also support and amazing organization that is doing so much good in our community. You can check out some photos from the event by checking out Spotted by Savannah Now. Here are a few of my favorite photos that I was able to snap that night:

Savannah Influencers

I can’t close out 2017 without talking about my love for a little group called Savannah Influencers. If you have been following my blog for a while, you know just how special this group of ladies has become to me. With 2017 being our first full year in existence, we have accomplished more than we ever thought possible. Our main focus this year was Safe Shelter so everything that we did, whether it was individual projects or a group effort, was focused on giving back to this amazing organization. We had community yoga nights and a spin class with The HUB, my event with Pace Lighting and a huge event that just took place called Savannah Influencers Night Out, all to raise money for Safe Shelter. But besides all of the good, what I love most is the love and support we had for one another. When women come together and truly lift one another up, magic happens. I can’t imagine my life without any of these spectacular ladies and I am so excited see what 2018 has in store for us all. Here is a look back on some of my favorite memories of the year:

It is safe to say that 2017 was one for the books. I cannot believe all of the opportunities that I have been given. It is crazy to think that my little blog has become what it is today. None of this would be possible without each and every one of my beautiful readers. You all are my Why and the reason why I keep on pushing through, even if it gets hard. I am so thankful for you taking part in this journey with me. I am so excited for 2018! I know that it is going to be an amazing year and I hope you will continue to tune in for the ride!
