Hello lovelies! Long time no post! I apologize for being a bit MIA these past few months. Between a tough semester of classes, an internship, and sorority, life has been pretty hectic. Thankfully, things are finally winding down a little!
The end of November not only means the end of a semester, but also the beginning of the holiday season. And with Black Friday tomorrow, there is no better time to snatch up some fantastic deals on all those items you've been eyeing for holiday gifts. So I've decided to compile a list of all the best Black Friday deals from the best stores. Since new deals will likely keep rolling out all day long, check back in every so often for updated offers!

Hello lovelies! As you all know by now, I absolutely love Francesca's. Though you can find their boutiques all across the country, each store has a super unique vibe and a huge selection of chic (and affordable) clothes and accessories. So when I heard that Francesca's would be hosting a Friends & Family Event with 25% off, prize drawings all day long, and sweet treats- I knew I'd have to stop in.

Hi lovelies! It's that time again for a Kate Spade Surprise Sale! Since it's basically tradition at this point, I'm going to share a few of my favorite pieces from the sale. Everything is up to 75% off, so it's definitely worth a look!

Hi lovelies! Ever since Sparkle & Mine really started taking off, I've had a lot of readers and friends reaching out asking me how to go about starting a blog. I'm often asked what my "secret" is to making my blog successful. And the truth is, there is no magical way to become an overnight hit. The advice I always give is to work hard, be patient, and learn everything you can about the world of blogging.
Of course, that's easier said than done. When I first started out, I was completely in over my head. I had no experience in blogging, and no contacts or resources to help me. So I did what I do best, I Googled. Every question that popped into my head as I went along, I painstakingly combed through page after page on the internet to find the answer. How do you get your blog seen? Where can you find design tools to customize your blog? How can you earn money with a blog? I was definitely giving my search bar a workout.
Since I love you all so very much, I don't want you to have to take the long way like I did. So I've started a new post series where I answer all of those questions and a whole lot more. I hope that by the end of this series, I will have created a thorough guide to starting a blog that makes the process easy and fun! I absolutely love the world of blogging, and I am so excited to share my experiences and insight with all of you!

Now without further adieu, the final chapter in The Smart Girl's Guide!
