My Handbag Essentials

Contents Of My Handbag

Handbag. Purse. Tote. The bags we ladies lug around on a daily basis have many names. But do we all carry the same things in them? The truth is that I think we're all a little bit nosey and we like to see what secret things other women carry around them. I used to be a bit like Mary Poppins with her … [continue]

Life and Times

New Year's Eve in New Orleans

I can’t believe we’re already more than halfway through January! How did that happen?! I know most bloggers like to do lists of their goals for the coming year but, if I’m entirely honest, I still don’t know for sure what I want to get out of this year. I mentioned in my last Life […]


Christmas Gift Ideas For Her

Gifts For Her

It’s that time of year where bloggers everywhere are putting together collections of gift ideas to help you make your life just that little bit easier, and I am no different. Wish lists and outright requests are common in my family, as you’ll have seen me mention before. We don’t really do surprises. We do […]


Life and Times


Yikes, I can’t believe we’re almost half way through December. Where did the time go?! It’s busy busy busy here at Fort Glitter so I guess I’ll get right to a Life and Times update of what’s been going on! Eating: Birthday cake! It was my birthday on November 29th and I turned 24 again. […]

AsosRbcVnc ThredUP

Why am I only just finding out about ThredUP, you guys?! I guess I was super late to the game and only signed up a few weeks ago, after accidentally watching a ThredUP haul video on someone’s YouTube channel. There was a coupon code to get $10 off of your first order, so I figured why not give […]

Destination Vacation – NaBloPoMo November 2014

Eiffel Tower

The prompt for November 7th is: Where is the one place you would never want to go on vacation that other people seem to love? I’ll admit it, I have been incredibly spoilt when it comes to traveling. There are some cities in Europe that I’ve been to so many times I can’t even count. […]


Where My Pros At? NaBloPoMo November 2014


The NaBloPoMo prompt for November 6th is: Do you consider yourself a “professional” blogger? Why or why not? What does that mean to you? When I think about professional bloggers, I think about people who turned their hobby into a successful business. A great example of this would be Elsie Larson of A Beautiful Mess. […]


Are You There, Blog? It’s Me, Tabby

Me and Daphne

Do I know anyone taking part in this month’s NaBloPoMo who is actually getting around to posting on time? I’m failing big time, silly life getting in the way! The NaBloPoMo prompt for November 5th is: Do you feel you have found your voice on your blog? What techniques have you tried to develop your […]


Holidays Are Coming! NaBloPoMo November 2014

Starbucks Cups

It’s that time of year again. No, not Christmas. I mean that awkward time of year where all the stores start selling Christmas decorations and decorating their windows and you kinda want to go to Starbucks and get a Chestnut Praline Latte on the first day they came out but you feel weird because it’s […]
