Tips and Tricks for Shopping with SHEIN and ROMWE

Two of my favorite places to shop when I am on a budge is SHEIN and ROMWE. These are both amazing sites that have great deals, super cute clothes, and fun, unique pieces. The biggest thing about these two sites is that most of the clothes are made in China. Because of this, people are often asking me about sizing and quality. To help you out, I am putting together a post of all of my tips and tricks to help you shop these websites like a pro!



My first piece of advice would be to remember where you are shopping from. This is not a place that I would recommend buying basics that you think are going to last. To be able to sell these pieces at the prices that they do, the material is usually not a super high quality. I would not recommend buying your business suits or evening gowns. This is definitely a place to buy trendy items that are usually only in-style for a season. With their amazing prices, even if I only wear an item once or twice, I don’t feel bad because I did not break the bank!



My next piece of advice would be to always check the size charts. Both sites are great at giving you very in-depth measurements. Because of the way the items are made, a size is not going to be generic across the platform. You may need a large in one top and a medium in another. I always check the charts before I even consider ordering a piece. Some things just will not work for me and, while I am alright with that, I definitely want to know before I order. If any of the measurements seem like they will be tight, I will order one to two sizes larger. Chinese sizes typically run a lot smaller so do not let it discourage you if you need a bigger size. This is true for most people!



Along with the size charts, I would also recommend reading reviews on the item your are hoping to purchase. There are usually quite a few reviews on every item so your take time and read through what people have to say about the item. A lot of people add pictures and this is great because you can see how the item will fit on an actual person and not just a model. Most everything looks good on a size 00 model so I definitely prefer to see the item on someone who is an actual size. If an item does not have any reviews it is mostly likely because the item is brand new. Unless you absolutely are in love with the item, I would not recommend purchasing without first reading a review. The reviews tell you about fit, quality, material and overall appearance of the item and people are usually very honest.



My next piece of advice would be to use those coupon codes! Both sites always have some sort of deal happening so it is very beneficial to check those out when you place your order. I usually only order when I know that I am able to spend $50. That is usually the starting point for the best deals and it is the point that you need to spend to get free shipping. Because the prices are so low, you can usually get a few items so it is definitely worth hitting that point. Search through the earrings and handbags to help add items to your cart and really make the most of your purchase. The statement earrings are gorgeous and usually only $5 a piece and there is a ton of “inspired” handbags that are super budget friendly.



My final piece of advice would be to just have fun. Order something that you many not otherwise have bought. The prices are so good that you do not have to worry about feeling guilty. I like everything that I have ever ordered from SHEIN and ROMWE. No complaints. Almost everything is good or great quality and the pieces are just so unique that I really stand out in a crowd. I get more compliments on my pieces from this site than anything else in my wardrobe.  Many items I have had for a few years and I still continue to wear. They are fun, unique and trendy, and with a little care on my end, they have become some of my favorite items in my wardrobe.



Hopefully you found this post helpful! I can honesty tell you that I love shopping with SHEIN and ROMWE and I know you can find something you love. Just remember my tips and tricks and it is sure to be one of your favorite, trendy pieces! If you end up making a purchase, let me know in the comments below! I always love to hear from you!

Spring has Sprung

I am loving that it is starting to warm up here in Georgia. We have had some exceptionally cold days and, while I do love the cold, too much starts to freeze my Southern blood. Here recently, on a very nice day, I was able to style some outfits for spring. It was so nice to be able to pull out my lighter layers and some of my favorite spring accessories.





The first look features the cutest light-weight thermal from Tobi. To add a little extra style to the top, I left the two bottom buttons unbuttoned and added a knot. I love the added detail and it makes the top that much more special. The material is super light weight so I know that I will easily be able to style the top with white skinnies or a cute pair of shorts in the coming warmer months.

For this look, I opted for a great pair of destroyed denim. This pair runs large and long! They are absolutely amazing but I had to order one size down and order a short! That never happens with my long legs! I also added some super cute accessories that I plan on styling on season long. I cannot say enough about the earrings. They are even cuter in person and have some really amazing details. I have already worn the shoes more times than I care to admit. They are super comfortable and go with almost anything. The handbag doubles as a backpack so it is perfect for keeping my hands free to chase my super fast toddler.

For my next look, I piled on all of the layers to create the cutest “weekend-ready” look! The star of this look is this super comfortable black shift dress from Tobi. The material is so soft and it has the best fit. I paired it with a great fitting chambray to give it a more casual look. I knotted the chambray for extra detail.

The accessories really stand out in this outfit as well. Instead of using a necklace or pair of earrings, I opted for a bandanna. This helped to up my casual vibe and really gave the outfit an unexpected look. I also love that the knot in the chambray mimics the knot in the bandanna. For shoes, I threw on my favorite tennis shoes, so I could really keep up with my active toddler. I swear, she runs faster that I do most days! To cover up my un-washed locks (#momlife) I decided to go with a hat. This one is so cute and has the perfect sized brim. It is great for everyday wear and beyond affordable. I finished the look with the cutest Kate Spade Camel bag and an adorable pair of heart-shaped sunnies!

For my last look, I pulled out my absolute favorite spring shoes and handbag and decided to mix up the seasons. This Tobi bell-sleeve top has the best velvet detail down the side. It features a thick, black stripe, paired with a smaller blue stripe by the wrist. I really feel like it was an unexpected detail for the top and I love how well it paired with my spring accessories. But the details don’t stop there on the top! There is definitively a party in the back when you turn around and reveal a cute knot detail, that shows just a hint of skin. It is such a fun addition and will really help to carry this top over to the summer.

To add even more detail, these jeans have a great button fly. I actually did not own a pair of button-fly jeans so I am happy to now have a pair in my collection. I also added a great pair of monogrammed sunglasses and a fun pair of tassel earrings. There are so many great tassel earrings in stores right now and most of them are super affordable. I love that the statement earring trend is carrying over into the spring because it was my favorite trend from the fall and winter months!

Hopefully all of these looks give you some inspiration for spring. I am definitely looking forward to the warmer months and cannot wait to put even more outfits together!

A Love Letter from Being Mrs. Fowler

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


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.



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.”


How true is that statement?



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.



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.



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!

Sweater | Skirt | Handbag | Booties | Earrings

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.




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.




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.




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




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!

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!!




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.




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.




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.



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.



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!

She Leaves a Little Sparkle Wherever She Goes

When the new year starts, I don’t know about you but I have all of these big plans. Big plans to wake up earlier, eat healthier, exercise more and put myself on a better schedule. Well here we are on day 23 of the new year and I have already had 5 cheat meals, only exercised twice and have only written one blog. So much for resolutions.


But as I sit here and type all of this out I can’t help but ask myself, “What is the point of a resolution?” I mean seriously? What is it about a New Year that makes people want to change who they are and the choices they make? Most importantly, why do you need a New Year to make those changes?

Last year, I made a decision to lose weight. It didn’t come because of the New Year. It came because I was tired of looking at myself in the mirror. It came because I was upset at the weight I had allowed myself to put on. It came because I was ready to make a better life choice. For me, it was not a resolution. It was a lifestyle change that just happened to start in the month of January.



What I think that we all need to realize is that we don’t need a New Year to make better life choices. We just need motivation, determination and a want to be better. Whether it is the month of January or October, any time of the year is a good choice to be a better you. For me, it was something that I wanted for myself and only for myself. I didn’t let anyone else influence my decision and I put in the time and effort to make the changes that I wanted a reality. It was not a quick over night fix. It was hard work and persistence that paid off.



I am writing this to challenge you to make a life style change this year. Not a resolution that you will break in two weeks, but a choice to be a better version of yourself. I feel like if you are making a change to fit with your life style, then their is room to customize it to fit your needs. A resolution is so absolute. Do this. Give up this. Don’t do this. A life style change, however, is more along the lines of, “What kind of choices can I make to make sure this change is successful in my own life?” For me, I knew that I could not give up wine or coffee. Because of this I made the sacrifice to give up something that I could live without. I also knew that I would hardly exercise so I started doing little things like parking further from the door, doing small exercises before bed or taking a walk around my neighborhood. And these choices worked for me!

Bottom line, while I do have hopes and goals for the year, just like last year, what I really want is to make better choices for a better me. I want to sparkle in whatever I do.



Make it a point this year to make a life style change instead of trying to keep up with a resolution. I promise that you will be much more successful, and much happier, with a change tailored to fit your life. Changes are not one size fits all. They have to be molded into what works for you. I encourage you to be the best version of yourself and leave a little sparkle wherever you go. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments below! I always love hearing from you!
