I am often asked, "Why do you blog? What is blogging?" Sometimes it's hard to explain so concisely.

A place to publicly share your passion on a particular subject, I answer.

A place where dreams can come true.

How, you ask?

Well, I am proof that if you work hard enough, wish enough and, of course, dream enough... exciting opportunities can truly stem from that. Positive thinking, creativity and lots of hard work. I love to blog because of the magic that comes from all of my hard work.

I call being contacted as such "Christmas emails" when I receive special emails in my inbox.

This time it was from Belk. Being a southern chain of department stores, Belk wanted to integrate southern bloggers for a Style Summit during Charleston Fashion Week in South Carolina. A beautiful city, if you haven't already been.

I, along with 8 other fashion bloggers, were invited to sit front row for Belk's fashion show. Attend a very special and private dinner with Trina Turk, the fashion designer. Take part in a style challenge, where we each got to style a look for ourselves with a $250 budget in under 30 minutes! And, enjoy a Garden themed brunch with Belk's executives, who throughly picked our brains on what life is like from a blogger's perspective. Talk about crazy amazing!!!

I will be blogging for the next few days sharing all of the excitement that took place during those 4 days.

Thank you BELK!! Trina Turk! And, the ever fashionable, Arlene Goldstein (VP of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction)

Please Stay Tuned :)
