Made The List

Can I say thank you? Well THANK YOU. Thank you to all of you that voted, tweeted, liked, and supported me during the Circle of moms TOP 25 Mom with Style contest. I could not have, and would not have made the list without you all, and your support. That says to me, and those that are reading that I have people cheering me on. I really cant explain how that makes me feel. Initially I thought I had no chance to make the list. I doubted myself, and really was not sure I could pull in enough numbers, but boy was I wrong. You guys showed up for me day after day, after day and hit that vote button.

I feel a huge, MAJOR connection to my readers. There may be a day when I am down or doubtful, and out of the blue I will receive an email from a reader with encouraging words. It is as though you guys can tell when I am not having a great day. I am touched, and it means so very much. I have been asked time and time again


I usually don’t have a politically correct answer, and it also depends on who asks the question. I take it all day by day. I know this platform is one that I love, and enjoy. This blog makes me happy. I feel even happier when I have in some way done something for someone else that I have never met face to face, but through this blog. So it is my hope to extend the happiness beyond just the blog, and in more ways than one. It is now the 6th month of the year, which means a half point for me. So I am thinking, and thinking of ways to keep GIGS a blog that you will always have at the top of your list. Something’s may seem out of whack at times, but its only temporary.

I wanted to be sure and say…Thanks for riding this train with me. Please keep your seats, and lets travel even more. The road is endless.

Since I did make the list, I thought I would post some of my favorite blog looks. These are styles that are 100% Tamara.














style to be continued….


High Fives & Hugs,

I love this post. Your blog was one of the first ones I discovered, especially from a stylish fly sista as yourself. I was inspired and you inspired me to start my own blog.
Your style is dope and so is this blog. Keep it up girl, I'm riding the train with you.

Congrats Tam:) I love all of the looks, but the yellow and black on the couch, the black dress, the jeans with the khaki jacket and of course the shoes are all my favs:) Oh and the pink pants, I think I commented on them when you put that post up! If I had no waist (lol) I could rock those, lol:) So glad I found your blog!
