New Name, New Design, New Objective- New Year's Resolution?

As you may have noticed, I changed my name, design, and objective for this blog. The name used to be "Blackbird Sings Love" because it reflected one of my favorite Beatles songs, "Blackbird." On the other hand, the name did not really reflect who I am. Although I loved the name, I wanted it to be more personal and reflect me. My blog is now (officially) called "Girl With a Dream." The title alone gives you a taste of the type of person I am- a dreamer. I was really pleased with myself when I thought of the name. It's perfect!
As the saying goes, "Out with the old, in with the new," I changed the whole design of the blog. I got rid of the blackbird background (tear) but compromised with the new layout since it has birds. Let's just pretend they are blackbirds! After the layout was changed, the fonts were changed, the colors, etc.
My objective in making a blog was to share my dreams, ideas, and differences with those who were interested in being apart of my world. Sure, I have only posted 3 times and I am still a rookie, but I was letting myself down by not following my objective. My New Year's resolution for this blog, is to share as much of myself to further enhance my posts and pictures. I know 2012 will be a year in which you will know me a lot better. I hope you still enjoy my (newish) blog and continue reading.

PS My URL is still

What do you think of the new name and design? Is there any advice that might help to become a better blogger?

New Year's Inspiration Board

New Years Inspiration

This is my first time using Polyvore, and I can guarantee you that it will not be my last! This is my first inspiration board and I hope it inspires you for the upcoming New Year. Sticking with black leather dresses in feminine cuts is classy and never goes out of style. Nude dresses with some shine can really make a statement at a party and can become a very memorable piece in your wardrobe. Make your accessories a statement by buying clutches that have lots of shine, or platforms in a bright color. Most importantly, have fun with your outfit! Always remember that it is a visual statement of who you are.

Holiday Treats

Although the holiday season is, almost, coming to a close, it is still necessary to treat yourself. Buy yourself little gifts that will make you happy- or even inspire you to blog about them! These are a few of the things that I have treated myself to, in order to keep the merriment alive.

My new black quilted Sperry's (My sister bought these for me for Christmas)
You can't take these shoes from me!

Sparkly nail polish from Forever 21
I painted all of my nails with the silver and put on a few coats of the multi-colored sparkles on my ring finger.

Entrance into the Incredible World of Fashion

Dear Readers,

This is my first post and I am so excited to finally be a part of the extensive fashion network! I am still new to all of this, so you will have to bear with me. I have always loved fashion and continue to pursue my joy with this blog. You will see some pictures of me, of my friends, and random things that inspire my life. I love art, music, and photography. I love to design clothes, read magazines, and experiment with different types of clothes. I guess you could call me a fashion scientist since I try to do it all! I hope you all enjoy my blog!
