Happy Monday! I finally reached over 1000 followers on Instagram and I’m at 5,500 blog views! These might seem like small milestones to some, but it’s definitely a big deal for me over here! I started blogging back in September so I’m coming up on eight months of publishing blog posts three times a week and posting to Instagram daily. It’s a lot of work…and I love it! I realize there are so many other bloggers out there, many of whom have probably grown to over 10,000 followers in the time it took me to get to 1000, and while a lot of other bloggers can let this get them down, I just like to focus on myself and stay positive!
Blogging isn’t my career, it’s my hobby. It’s what I LOVE to do. It is a pretty involved hobby, a pretty expensive hobby, but writing is what I’m passionate about and blogging is a great way for me to exercise my creativity. Do I day dream about making money blogging? Sure! Who doesn’t? Of course that would be amazing, but I’m really happy with where I am now. I’m grateful to be able to have the ability to blog and share styles and experiences with you guys! As always, I’m always open to any feedback/critiques/comments! Thank you for sticking around!
Now for the fun part! I love Sephora the way Kanye loves Kanye (true!), so giving away a Sephora gift card seemed like a no brainer here! This is part 1 of 2 giveaways over the next two weeks.

So awesome! 5500 blog views yay! Keep up the good work!
Thanks so much! I really appreciate it Stacey!
I love all of your beauty and clothing reviews! I have found so many brands and items because of your blog/ social media. Keep it up!
Thanks Lexi! That’s so sweet!
I love that you find unique brands that I would have never found myself, and you always share great deals!
I like the clean look of the blog.
I love how clean it looks, and I wish you shared lots of party ideas!
Hey Michelle, thanks for saying hi! I LOVE the idea of more party related posts. There are few things I love more than throwing a good party, so I’ll be sure to work on something like that soon for you and my other readers! Thanks again!
I like that you post what you’re wearing, and I would like more travel!
Thanks Angela for stopping by and sharing some feedback with me! I love hearing from you guys! And wish granted— I’m heading to Colorado for the next two weeks so I’ll be sharing lots more travel posts on the blog in the coming month!
Hi Helen! I’m new here. I know the pain of acne all too well. I had horrible cystic acne on my back and chest for years. Thankfully I was able to take Accutane and have it actually work for me, but I worry every day that it will come back. I am not ashamed to say I have cried in front of more doctors and dermatologists than I can count. My heart truly goes out to anyone struggling with acne.
So far my favorite thing about Style Inherited is ‘Shop My Looks’. I am always searching for fun new outfits and style inspiration. As for something I would like to see more of… how about recipes? I noticed in your ‘About’ section that your father is a chef and you love cooking. It might be fun to do some sort of father-daughter cooking series.
Hi Cindy! Welcome and thank you so much for your feedback! I love hearing from my readers, you make my day! And wow, I’m sorry about your journey with acne, but am so glad that you have resolved it (hopefully forever!). I’m a bit scared to try Accutane to be honest. The sugar-free diet I’m on now seems to have helped my cystic acne A LOT, but I miss sugar, A LOT too! So it’s a struggle!
Love the great pictures you provide. I’d love to see more hauls or tutorials
Hey Angie! Happy Friday! Thanks for stopping by and sharing your feedback, I really appreciate it! I’d love to share more hauls/tutorials! That is such a great idea, thanks again!
I love reading about your sugar detox and would love to see more posts doing higher and lower price product comparisons!
Hi Emily! Thanks for following along! I will be sure to do that with higher and lower price-points!
I love your clothes reviews, and would love to see more sale alerts.
hi! Thanks for stopping by, I love shopping sales, and will try to do a better job of sharing sale alerts- although that will probably be easier to do on my Insta Stories. Do you follow me on Instagram? If not it’s @helenbphillips !! Thanks again!
I like your fashion posts. Would love to see more budget fashion posts
Hey Elena, thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your feedback, and will do better with finding budget friendly options!
