One YEAR Blogaversary!

One year.

I cannot believe that I have been plugging away at this for a whole year.
One year ago I decided to start this blog separate from my personal blog because my passion for Fashion and blogging in general was bigger than where I wanted my personal blog to go.
I asked my friends and family to follow me down my own "Fashion Lane".
And though it has been a year, I still feel like I have barely scratched the surface. My dreams are so much larger than what I have been able to compile on this page.

There have been ups and downs, joy and pain, overcoming insecurities (will people really like what I have to say...actually it was more, will they like ME!), a couple of breaks and trying many new things. I have many new friends and relationships that have grown due to the love of the same things/people/style that I will be forever grateful to have in my life. I will never forget the feeling I had when my first follower (who was from the blogosphere and I had never met) commented for the first time.

With that said...

And It is a party or something of the sorts. Get settled in, look around and enjoy the new look of Life in the Fashion Lane. I have to THANK Kimmie who used her creative and crafty brain to design the new header, layout, button and pictures. I could NEVER have done this without her.

THANK YOU Kimmie...from the bottom of my heart!

 In all of the excitement I will be doing a GIVEAWAY! Free stuff??? Yes, please!

This blog wouldn't be what it is today without you!
I appreciate my readers, followers and commenter's. Your words of encouragement make doing this worth it!
So here on Fashion Lane we are celebrating all the fellow Fashionista's.

Since I am not crafty I had to offer something that is relevant to me personally and my readers.
I don't sew, I am not a collector of all things vintage but I DO know how to shop!
Soooooooo I am giving away...

$35 worth of gift cards.

Here is the breakdown:
$10 to NORDSTROM (the reason is pretty obvious)
$10 to KOHL'S (to help get your own LC Lauren Conrad piece)
$10 to the GAP (try in a pair of the 1969 jeans. They are all I wear. I love them)
$5 to STARBUCKS (since my blog's birthday is in Fall and I am obsessed with Pumpkin Spice Lattes, so I am encouraging you to try it. On ME!)

Here are the rules to qualify:
1. Leave a comment on this post
2. Be a follower or begin following "Life in the Fashion Lane"
3. Link up, Tweet or Facebook about the giveaway
4. You have one week (10/20/10) until a winner is determined.

That's it. Easy Peasy.

Happy Blogaversary!
