Remember those questions, the 5 W's (+ How) that were drilled in our little brains in elementary school? Come on, I know you do!! Today I put a new spin on an old classic…check me out, cause I'm keepin' it real!
WHO: Whitney Lizbeth. Tea only. #cozystyle is my thang! Office Manager/Personal Assistant. Finally blogging! Married. I gave my husband his own hashtag: #fpciv. Originally from MA, went to school in NH, now living in CT. I love to decorate. Holidays make me happy, especially Christmas. I love to create…whether it be writing, styling an outfit or wrapping a pretty gift. Hats are just fabulous. I love to wear them, all styles & colors. I crave gummi bears, especially those red ones. Snail mail is important and I try to send as much as possible (with confetti of course!). Being an aunt makes me smile all the time…my nieces refer to me as Auntie Nini, or in little girl language Tanti Nini. I love to wear fleece, totally #cozystyle, which has earned me the nickname “fleece monster”, created by the one and only #fpciv. To have style is an amazing thing. You don’t need a lot of money to have style. All you need is confidence, personality, enthusiasm and a little dash of sparkle in your step.
WHAT: Leopard Spots & Pineapple Dots. Yeah, I know, it’s a quirky name. And…I love it! Leopard print and pineapples are my favorites, so why not make a little rhyme and merge the two together?! This blog is a great accomplishment for me. I have wanted this for so long and am thrilled it has happened! Join me here for chit chats about style, trends, shopping, sparkles, pretty things and sometimes just good ol’ life in general.
WHERE: Tune in to my fancy little office in our guestroom! I love to work, read and write here and plan on connecting with you all from this fun, girly and cozy space. Currently living in CT. Occasionally, you will hear from me while on the road, traveling up or down the east coast.
WHEN: Do you miss me already?! Just kidding my friends. I want to connect with all of you as much as possible. I don’t have a specific schedule set yet for blogging, but will do my best to keep everything new, fun and fresh!
HOW: How did I get here?! After realizing that owning my own cutesy boutique or vintage shop just wasn’t in the cards, I decided I would read fashion blogs to get that little fix of style, shopping, bargains and beautiful design. It took about a year or so of reading various fashion blogs for 1-2 hours each day while drinking my morning tea, before I thought to myself…why can’t I do this? I can…right?! Of course!! When I finally started really thinking about it, I took baby steps, and then a few months ago I decided to pick up the pace. I have been doing my research, I have been inspired by so many talented and creative people and I have had and continue to get the support needed to make this happen. And now, here we are!
WHY: Why not, right!? I am here to share my thoughts, outfits, creations…I want connect with other stylish creative minds and I want to learn about others and how they got to where they are today. I want to learn about blogging through those of you that have been doing this for a long time. I want to work with some of you in the future, promote your brand, and maybe even interview you for a feature post.
I want to surround myself with people who enjoy the same things I do.
I want to support and promote the small businesses that I love to shop. I want to encourage and inspire others, like I have been encouraged and inspired along the way. This blog is an advanced version of the dreams and visions I once had and is actually giving me the opportunity to stay involved with things I enjoy, without having to do a major overhaul on my day to day. In my book, you can’t get much better than that.
Welcome to my happy place…
