WOW, Cheers to 3 years of blogging! {& give-a-way!}

I can't believe I have been writing this little blog for 3 years! 
Behind the Leopard Glasses has turned into such a great experience,
I started at a time when I was like I had no creative outlet in my life,
I had just graduated college and was substitute teaching before I decided to get my teaching cert,
I was stuck in a rut, living in my parents house, when this idea was put into motion. 

I love everything about blogging, 
the people I have met, the brands I work with, sharing my life and outfits one day at a time!

Cheers to 3 years blogging,

I can't wait to open my online shop, I am {hopefully} going to Texas Style Council this year 
& hope to continue to share in this community of creative fashion/shopping obsessed people!
