Oh hello, My 100 Beautiful Followers!

Thank-you so much for all your support. 
Words can not express how thankful and ecstatic I am. 

I began this blog around last August and I had no idea what I was doing, I only made a few posts and was in way over my head at that point. Then in September when I started going crazy with school, two jobs, and life I had no time to manage an ill-formatted blog and wanted to wait till I got a better camera.  I was then forced to go on a hiatus, which unfortunately lasted until this past March when I started back up.

So, I was at it again, this time with a new approach-  I added some of my back dated events and festivities from over the past few months, that I had missed while on on hiatus and began working diligently every day on this blog.  I changed my layout, formated how I would fit shooting my outfits into life, and tried to be more organized about my whole approach.  I also became a lucky contributor and just joined bloglovin' and lookbook as well.  But I still know I have much to learn and hope for so much more growth.

I continue making adjustments and trying to branch out. I finally added a Google Friend Connector so readers could follow "icantaffordmylifestyle" more regularly at the end of March.  I wanted to see if I could get 100 followers by May 1st- giving myself the full month. Now thanks to all of you, I MADE IT.  Due to all of your support I have 100 followers in a month and I owe it to each and everyone of you. 

I have much work still ahead of me, its always a growing process, but I am excited for the future and happy to meet so many other creative souls.  

Again, I Thank-You ALL.  

So that being said, 
I wanted to show you all a little preview 
of my fun things and some beautiful things 
to be looking out for within the next few months.

I had been saving for a little shopping spree since my birthday in March and finally embarked on my retail excursion yesterday.  I still have a few things on my wish list for the summer. But my my debit card needs to cool off a little first. haha.  

It was amazing and I wanted to share some of the things I bought:

1 hat, 1 skirt, 1 pair of shorts, 1 blouse, 1 essential denim jacket, 
2 dresses, 2 clutches, and 2 pairs of shoes.  

(hahahah. My kitty thought I put these fresh new clothes out for her.)

Next, I wanted to give a preview of events I will be covering over the next couple months:

1. Zombie Run 5K
2. Spin Doctors Concert
3. The Boardy Barn Opening Day
4. The Drop Kick Murphys Concert
5. Social Distortion Concert
6. Beer Tasting with Dirty Heads and the Wailers Concert
7. The Color Run 5K
8. Citizen Cope Concert
9. The Martha Clara Craft Beer Festival
10. Electric Zoo

& That's only what I have planned for the moment. 
Sure there'll be more to come!
I hope you all are enjoying my blog!
Stay Tuned!
