Ultimate Blog Party 2012 – Living Smart, Simple & Stylish

Hello everyone and welcome to BernettaStyle! I wanted to create a space where I could just put all the information that I get and share it. Whenever I get information that I believe will help anyone, I want to tell it. I like making peoples lives easier mainly because I am always trying to make my own easier.

The Blog (website) is going to cover many different topics but it will mainly be broken down into three categories: Living Smart, Simple & Stylish.Living Smart. To me this means, basically making good choices. In order to make good choices you need the right information at the right time. We (my hubby and I) teach our children the consequences of making good/bad choices and the results. Many of us are living with results of choices we made years ago. And what you do today actually shapes your tomorrow. So, as I write this blog – when I find news worthy information about any and everything I will post it for your enjoyment, pleasure, growth, knowledge or whatever reason you might need it. Living Smart just makes life easier. If you think back, how would your life have turned out if you just would have made one different decision? I know I have a few regrets, but I can’t go back. I can only go forward knowing every decision yields a result.

Living Simple. I thought about this as I was packing to move. I was thinking, “I do not need ALL this stuff and I am not taking it with me!” I have lived in my house for 8 years and I saw papers, clothes, and just STUFF that I hadn’t touched in maybe 5+ years! I threw it all away. I said, “I am going into my new house with less and only want I need. And if I bring what I want, I am surely going to use it!” I told my husband that if I hadn’t wore something in over 2 years, I probably wasn’t ever going to wear it. Living simple doesn’t mean you can’t have nice things, but it does make you ask the question, “Do you need all this stuff!?” Do you have things just to say you have things? Clear out the clutter! Don’t be a hoarder! Do you have to collect everything? I think it’s really cool when what you need is what you want!

Living Stylish. Now if you really knew me (and maybe you will if you start following my blog! smile!) you would know that I enjoy looking cute and different! Who doesn’t right? But my true friends know that I do not LIKE to spend alot of money on clothes, nor do I? It really has become a game with my friends. I show up and the first thing they say is, “Ok, what did you pay this time, $5?!” I love it! I love finding a deal. I am the clearance rack queen. I even go to thrift stores too! Style is everywhere! In my opinion it’s not how much you spend on anything, its your TASTE! Period. You could spend $100 on a shirt and it still could be ugly! It’s all about taste. I am not a label whore. I just love to look nice no matter who made it. I am not telling you to shop where I shop (that’s on you love!). I am telling you to shop how I shop, which means “Find the best deal!” I am not the richest chick (YET! #thinkingpositive), but even when God does bless me with an abundance of cash flow – I will not be buying $5000 bags, $10,000 shoes! I can help a child go to college or pay someones rent for a year with that excess. I will still be in Target, okaaay!! I will just not have to go to the clearance rack all the time! haaaaaaaaaa!!

Thanks for reading my post and I welcome you to join this page and share with your friends! I will cover a range of topics and just write about Life day-to-day as I live Smart, Simple & Stylish!

    Well, where do I start? You wrote a great intro and cover the perfect blend of topics. I am all for living simply but it’s not always that easy. I could definitely use some fashion tips but I rarely pay over $20 for anything 😛 Great to meet you during the UBP12!
