what is g.i.g.s.


Pinned Image

From time to time I am asked WHAT IS GET IT GIRL STYLE ABOUT? Some might say I offer to much fashion, and not enough décor. Others may ask where is the relationship advice that you have promised for months with Mr. Styles. Or I might get a comment made about an outfit that I may have posted that may be a little “questionable” which is hilarious to me. And then I might get a comment where someone will ask why I am not commenting on their blog. I have been blogging since 2008 folks. That is a good amount of time in blog world. I have seen it all, heard it all, and even schooled by blog hard knocks. I have followed some bloggers that have gone from popular to mega blogger$, and then some that have decided to close out the spot, and move on from blogging. But still, what is G.I.G.S.?

As I have said. GET IT GIRL STYLE is a LIFESTYLE BLOG. This blog is MY LIFESTYLE in the forefront, but it also belongs to so many others. I post what’s on my mind, what’s in my home, what I want to wear, what I cook, and even where I go.


When I get up in the morning on a good day, I walk around our house and look at what we have done. I even smile at our décor, not just because I like it. But because its home. I think of new things to do, make a mental note and move on to the next thing on my list. After a bit, its time to get dressed and that is fun to me. Putting on accessories is fun for me. Again, its my LIFESTYLE, and I am sure I am not alone. Those are things that I enjoy posting. I will find a reason to take a photo of something with a post in mind. I have kids that require my time more the older they get, and hold my brain to the point where I may not even post the next day. Years ago, I posted twice a day, and felt so bad when I could not post one thing. Life does not call for those same behaviors because my lifestyle has changed in a sense.


There are new readers to G.I.G.S. and I want to welcome you, if I have not before. And to those that have read this blog for years, and supported me in all that I have done over here. I thank you. You guys are one reason why I continue to hit the post button when things seem a bit cloudy. This blog is for EVERYONE. A DIVERSE lifestyle galaxy that connects us all to things that are pretty, and of course to what we love.

This blog will always represent a LIFESTYLE. There will always be décor over any other topic, the adventures of fashion and style, and I even may offer an open discussion on topics that come to mind. I may share recipes, the chronicles of my hair, the love for my family, useful projects and DIY’s, real interviews, and yes we will finally have that relationship advice, the latest on career hopes, sponsored posts, and so much more. It just depends on what happens in life, and style. One thing that will forever be an imprint on this blog is the personal feel of me and my honesty. I call it like I see it 100% of the time.

I have always been an email away. EMAIL ME. I would love to hear from you.

(I close with High Fives & Hugs because a high five to me is a symbol of YEAH (with excitement), WAY TO GO,  and of course GET IT GIRL! Hugs are an expression of so many things that are good. We all can use a hug everyday, and this is my way of extending one to you.)

ohhh, and what’s an anniversary without gifts? stay tuned.

High Fives & Hugs,
