Hands down, one of my favorite things about being a blogger is discovering new shops and brands that offer unique items. I love having the power to share with my readers my style finds from lesser known stores and brands.          Ever since starting my blog, Etsy has become my best friend. For those who are not familiar with Etsy, it’s a website that acts as a marketplace for people to buy and sell unique goods. On Etsy, you can discover hundreds of boutiques selling handmade and vintage items; things you can’t find at your typical mall.          Recently, I stumbled across a special boutique on Etsy, CharlotteCoutureGlam. I had the pleasure to chat with Tiffany Griffith, the owner of CharlotteCoutureGlam. Tiffany uses jewelry making as her creative outlet. Her pieces emphasize semi-precious stones, gold and sterling silver chains, elaborate beading, and real leather. Each piece is very unique and trendy. She told me she gets most of her inspiration from the beautiful scenery of northern California, where she makes her home. Her jewelry is versatile and you will find many ways to incorporate her pieces as you accessorize your favorite outfit.          After chatting with Tiffany, she was kind…

It is officially spring and how I wish the weather could be warmer and sunnier. I have never been so happy to see grass. To be honest, I almost forgot what grass looked like after our long snowy winter. Now that it is spring, it is time to embrace the spring trends. One of my favorite things to do is visit my favorite clothing stores, view their products, and figure out what trends are popular this season. After countless visits to my favorite stores and many hours spent online shopping, I have come up with a list of the trendiest of trends for spring 2015. Take a look at what follows to see what I’m thinking.  1. Fringe Hands down, fringe is one of my favorite trends this season. Fringe resembles that boho chic style, of which I am a huge fan.

For the bohemian style, I recommend investing in a pair of flared jeans. Style flared pants with a paisley patterned blouse,…
