How to search: Label Glossary

As I mentioned in my last post, the blog is starting to spurt off in multiple directions of online shopping, fitting room reviewing, general item obsessing, sometimes traveling, meat-less cooking, home snazzing up-ing, and who knows where it's heading next....  I sure don't....

In a effort to keep things organized (Type A personality here folks) I try my best to "label" my posts for easy referencing in case anyone (or myself) needs to re-find a post or wants to read something similar. 

I thought since the list of "Labels" - located at the bottom of this blog - is growing I'd take a moment to define them that way if you're strictly here for "Window Shopping" as opposed to "Playing Home Improvement" you know where to look.

**Store and Brand Labels are omitted from this glossary, as they are clearly self-explanatory.

award shows:  home to all Award Show fashion reviews and roundups

cookies:  I bake cookies. I eat cookies. I dream of cookies.   ...seriously and all found here

coupon code:  past and present coupon codes and online shopping tips and tricks

crafty lady:  my attempts at DIY

fashion disaster:  trends I hate, or potentially anything worn by Lindsay Lohan

financial fashion 101:  putting that degree to work by showing off the mathematical breakdowns of what I call a "deal"

Giveaways:  woot woot!  stayed tuned!!!

holidays:  not a brand or store, but clearly also self-explanatory

home decorating:  someday I'll get a more clever name for this, until then, this is where you can find all housewares and home decorating ideas and inspirations

kitchen clean up:  a 'playing home improvement' sub-project, check here for our kitchen transformation

master makeover:  a 'playing home improvement' sub-project, check here for our master bedroom transformation

OOTD:  Outfit of the Day

painting:  our house has great bones and some ugly walls... therefore we paint. 

Paper Doll Polyvore:  I like to play with paperdolls - except they aren't dolls and just image files of things I want to wear saved to polyvore... check them out here

playing dress up:  a combination of fitting room reviews, trying things on, and any other dressing up this is not my OOTD

playing home improvement: chronicles of our home renovations and transformations

playlist:  what's jammin' on the iPod 

poll:  umm... well, polls! 

puppers:  I'm a proud woofy-momma... make baby kissy-faces and "awwws" here

randomness:   yup... the remaining miscellaneous posts that have no other home... kind of like this one!

Shop My Closet:  infrequent feature of trying to find good clothes good homes...

shopaholic:  real life purchases I make, sometimes there are quite a few - whoops! 

SQUEE:   anything worth getting totally excited over

tech toys:  for those few entries that don't belong to clothing and housewares

travel:  believe it or not, sometimes we leave home

trends: anything related to trends - discussing them, buying them, scouring for more 'wearable' versions of them...

wedding:   wedding related - mine, others, etc.

window shopping:  any posts where I 'online shop' and link items I'm coveting...

wino aficionado:  'red red wine, you make me feel so fine' and yeah, sometimes I talk about it....

wishlist:  a feature I posted on Wednesdays during the holiday season of all things I wanted to find under the tree... also just things in general that I want (gimme now!)

    oh maybe I would have a "yay for_____" one too.

  4. very cool. I started to do something similar on my blog but not quite as specific just yet. I usually post things that either I created so things I made or things others made things I found. It does certainly help! I love being organized!

  5. Haha, thanks girls... and yes, I'm bit OCD if you haven't noticed.

    I figured it might be helpful to have a link to this post in my sidebar for people who are strictly visiting for clothes and shopping vs home improvements, etc that way they can find want they want easier...
