Ok guys, here is your chance to help shape my blog. I need you, the readers, valuable feedback on how to get to the next level. Here are some pointers that I’ve gotten so far
• Full width photos, at a higher res within your posts. This has been known to capture more attention and reduce the bounce-rate • For something like “Want to shop the styles click here,” make the “here” clickable and link that with your bitly link instead of putting it afterwards since it looks cleaner • Look into photoshop to pop colors in your photos a bit more, to make it (again) more engaging and fun in a super easy way • Look into designing a logo & branding • Purchase a domain name.
Yes? No? Have a better idea? Comment and let me know!!

So yesterday the BF and I went down to Atlantic term for some errands and decided to grab a bite to eat. I’ve walked past this place and have made a mental note to check it out. Oxford Kitchen is located at the crazy 5 way where Fulton, Lafayette, Hansen Pl and another street all meet up. So in we went (me being sold on chicken and waffles…) and grabbed a table. There was only one server who seemed indifferent about creating engagement due to being out all night. However the mimosas were B1G1 along with bloody marys or even a cucumber Bellini. We opted for mimosas, the BF ordered a prosciutto and egg sandwich and I the chicken a pumpkin and sage waffles. His was more like an open face ham and egg and my chicken was like breaded chicken strips. The home fries were WELL seasoned and had some heat, it seemed to be the same seasoning that was used on my chicken. The waffles were served with a maple butter and maple syrup. Initially there was no coffee, but half way through the waiter came by and asked if we wanted a cup. It was delish (maybe its because i had nasty soy creamer that morning) and we spoke on things that couple do. If your around stop in and check it out, overall 3 out of 5 forks.
Feliz nuevo ano! Happy New Years! Bonnes Années! ευτυχισμένο το νέο ετών!

Why should you shop local this holiday? Because when you shop with a local business (like mines) you immediately and directly impact that person. Case in point, I am asking everyone to shop with me this holiday season for their jewelry needs as I was in a fender bender on 11/17. Your purchase will help me pay to fix my car. So please take a moment, check out my site and maybe buy a little something for someone.
Plus orders over $100 get $10 back and FREE shipping. Everything is also backed with a lifetime replacement guarantee.
So this holiday I’m asking everyone in my social network to shop small and local business, such as mine. I’ve joined a few groups on FB that are helping promote this, but I’m asking YOU blogosphere to be the catalyst. Take a moment and share this via FB, Instagram, Twitter, or here in WordPress. Know why purchasing at a small business helps? This is according to an article from January of this year on http://cognoscenti.wbur.org
In fact, small businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy, accounting for about half of all private-sector jobs, and 65 percent of new jobs created in the past 17 years.
So to help out my customer base I’m offering an incentive from now until 11/30. Spend $100 on my e-boutique and get a gift card for $10. That’s $10 to use anywhere, anytime just for you as a thank you for showing your support. All my jewelry is backed with a lifetime replacement guarantee and is hypoallergenic. Plus you can only buy the jewelry via a merchandiser (like ME), so that means it exclusive. And who doesn’t love a unique gift? So click the link below and give a one of a kind gift that will last a lifetime.
Well NYC fall/winter is here. That means it’s time to retire the lightweight jackets and capris and move into warmer clothes like sweaters and jackets. Now here is a dilemma, do you wear a cute jacket that provides no protection against the elements or a bulky jacket that is designed for subzero temps? Me personally, I’m all about the North Face. I hate being cold and this is the best thing I’ve ever bought in my 10+ years in NY. Whats your take on this?
