The Terrible Twos

If you were on top of your Instagram game yesterday, then you would know that yesterday was the 2nd anniversary since I began The Caro Diaries.

Who would have thought that two full years ago, I'd find myself logging onto Wordpress (long before the move to Blogger), and writing my first post - an introduction about myself.

But wow, two years. That's an incredibly long time. I sure as hell didn't think I'd stick with it this long. I started The Caro Diaries as an escape - my way to practice my writing, express how I was feeling, and share whatever limited knowledge I had.

What I didn't expect in these two years was that I would fall in love with blogging, with my own little space online. I didn't expect The Caro Diaries to become such a large part of my life, and for my little personal page to become a life and style blog. I didn't expect to like it this much, and I didn't expect to make such great friends and to get so many fantastic opportunities.

If you told me two years ago that I would be where I am today, I would have laughed at you. But then again, if you told me two years ago that I would be doing anything that I'm currently doing, I wouldn't have believed you.

Two years is a long time, and I'm so blessed that you've spent two years with me, and with The Caro Diaries.

You've watched me struggle with homesickness, fake friends, anxiety and losing a friend.
You saw me pack my bags and move to New York, and then realize it's a lot harder than I thought it would be.
You saw me join a sorority, and love it.

You saw some of the best moments of the last two years, but you also saw me go through some of the lowest moments of the last two years, and you still read even when I went MIA when I was going through some things of my own.

I'm excited to have shared the last two years, and so excited to see where The Caro Diaries goes in the future. I can't say for sure, but I hope to be around for many, many more years.

So to celebrate two years, I worked with this fantastic company called Dressometry to create a fun photoshoot.

Dressometry is basically Google for dresses, especially designed for college students and millenials. You can "design a dress" and they'll show you all the dresses that match what your criteria, including sorting by event, formality, price range, color and how scandalous or conservative you'd like to look. 

They sent me this hot pink asymmetrical open-back number from ASOS that just screamed "The Caro Diaries".. don't you agree? 

Paired with the perfect nude pumps, and a funky yet neutral clutch, it's gonna be a weekend go-to for me.

PS. Have you heard about Rocksbox as yet? It's this cool service where you pay $19 a month, and you get three pieces of jewelry sent to your door for you to use for as long as you'd like. Whenever you're ready for a new set, just send it back and get a new set of jewelry! Love a piece you have? You can buy it at a discounted price as a Rocksbox insider! It's a win/win! Plus, I've gotten you your first month free with the code carodiariesxoxo

  13. A pesar de que los bolsos MK son lo que he acuñado como "lujo asequible", una persona con los presupuestos más ajustados puede tener dificultades para comprar una bolsa por cien dólares o más.(Bolsos Michael Kors Rebajas) MK tiene bolsos que van de pequeño, mediano a grande. y varían en precios.(Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos) Los bolsos más pequeños ni siquiera son bolsos ... se llaman muñequeras.(bolsas michael kors precios) O, los uso para billeteras para ciertos bolsos.(Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet) Es mucho más barato hacerlo de esa manera que tratar de tener. una billetera para cada bolso MK que poseas.(bolsos michael kors rebajas)

    Om du planerar att äga en MK handväska och inte vill betala mycket över hundra dollar, är det bästa alternativet att vara den mindre väskan.(Michael Kors Plånbok)Om du är seriös om att hitta MK handväskor för mindre än du bättre tittar på någon annanstans.(MK Väska) Hemligheten att hitta MK handväskor till rabatterat pris är att handla online på en webbshop som säljer autentiska MK handväskor.(Väskor Michael Kors Rea) Du kan hitta bra handväskor till priser som du bara önskat att du kunde betala.(michael kors väska rea) Alla sökningar har gjorts för dig. Jag sparar inte bara pengar, utan också tid.(michael kors väska rea)

    Les sacs à main Longchamp sont à la mode et très pratiques.(Longchamp Soldes Destockage) Étant donné que beaucoup de femmes se retrouvent souvent submergées de choses à emporter chaque jour.(Sac A Main Longchamp) Longchamp a relevé le défi en créant des sacs à main qui sont aussi des fourre-tout polyvalents.(Sac Longchamp Pliage)Les sacs à main Longchamp sont des produits de qualité portant un nom réputé.(longchamp soldes) Les sacs à main Longchamp sont grands et spacieux, mais restent très à la mode et très demandés.(pronote college longchamp)
