I have been as nervous a an 8 year old going to Valentine's Day at school in her new velvet skirt (oh that was me too!). Just hoping I don't look ridiculous among all you young lovelies! Also, your button is on my blog here :!!!! Fun!!!

  • I loved the idea of the challenge, the only thing is that the requirement banner is kind of large, could you make a smaller one? I'd love to participate but it's actually to big… 🙁

    • You can go into the html and adjust it down. I did.

      • Thanks! But I just added the new button! It's smaller… 🙂

  • Hey Kristina, Maybe have as one of the requirements that they turn off their friggin' captcha! …or just suggest it really sweetly in a perfect PSS kind of way! I commented on everyone's and at least half had on captcha.

    • Hi there – I appreciate the commenting but unfortunately that's just a really unrealistic requirement. I'm not going to tell people how to run their blogs. But I'm sure everyone knows that captcha is annoying! It's a Blogger thing, unfortunately.

  • Kristina, I was only kidding! TCB

    • Woman, half the time you say "HATE this" or "Hate that" how was I supposed to know?! Remember the internet screws up sarcasm in a very reliable way!

      xoxo K

      • True, true.

        By the way, I am loving this challenge and so are tons of other people. Can't believe all the wonderful commenting going on and all the gorgeous clothes. My hat goes off to you for this one…unbelievable. 96 entries? Wowza. You are going to think I am some kind of stalker if you see how many times I've clicked on that page. I just love looking at eveyone's interpretations…

  • I can't wait to go through all of these later when I have time!! I loved our first assignment 🙂



    • Your look is gorgeous! I envy your tan.

  • […] So I’m sure you guys have heard all the hype about the new trend Color Blocking.  Bloggers Do It Better is a new challenge created by the lovely Kristina at Pretty Shiny Sparkly. This challenge consists of weekly assignment of the latest trends where you can linkup on her blog for that week. This weeks first assignment was the Color Blocking trend which is very popular right now and I was up for the challenge. I do love color, but often I only play it safe and not think outside the box. Well with the color blocking trend you do just that and be creative and play around with color. I do need to work on adding more colors in my wardrobe, especially pants. I really don’t own many colored pairs of pants so I will be working on that. Head on over to Pretty Shiny Sparkly to see how everyone else is rocking Color Blocking. […]
