Tuesday was the one-year anniversary of my first blog post on Little Miss Fearless.
In the past year of blogging I have had good days and bad. I’ve been inspired and discouraged. And I’ve had many days where I wanted to quit altogether. But then I’d remember the simple idea that inspired me to start blogging in the first place. It was the idea that I didn’t have to be perfect to inspire you. I just needed the courage to give it a try.
On my quest to fearlessness, I have learned to listen less to my critics and listen more to myself. I don’t expect every reader to love every outfit, nor do I expect everyone to understand my fears and insecurities. But I hope when you read my blog that you feel encouraged and inspired. And not just by the fashion (although, that’s the fun part) or because you think I’m perfect (I’m not even close), but because you see the courage in my ability to deal with my imperfections. If you’re burdened by your insecurities, I hope you know I believe in you. I can relate to you. I am cheering for us in the fight against our fears.
Congrats! I like your style.

Congrats Amanda, love your blog!! ♥
Congrats on your blog birthday!! My 2-year is today 🙂 As long as you keep loving it, I wouldn't let anyone discourage you. Instead of listening to your critics look at all the people who follow and love your blog. You've only been around a year and you have a larger following than some people get in five. That's because you're a great blogger and should keep doing it as long as you're inspired and loving it 🙂 Happy Blog Birthday!
Congrats! I love your fun use of colors – it has made me think about what I buy for myself and step outside of the usual boring neutrals I usually gravitate toward since I am not "old" ;)! And you are as cute as button. It takes a lot to put one's self out there like you do so never doubt the courageous nature of that.
Happy one year blogiversary! 🙂 I love your blog and your style 🙂
Congrats girl!! 🙂
Sincerely Miss Ash

I am so happy I discovered your blog! It is one of my favorites. You always look so pulled together. Seeing this mash up of your outifts made me realize how obsessed I am with your style! XO
Yay, love your style and so glad you're keeping at it!
Congrats on one year Amanda, this is awesome! 🙂
SO exciting! Congrats!
BTW Don't you love how you can look at a collection of your outfits and realize that you pic the same colors and your style never really changes? I did this for my six month mark and really saw that I wear the same things over and over haha
Congrats on your one year anniversary!! I do love that you play with color in your outfits 🙂 I feel like when fashion bloggers get too serious, then most color goes out the window!!
Congratulations! I hope I manage to reach the one year mark too 🙂
Congrats on one year! Love the little photo collage you put together. And glad you kept pushing through when you wanted to quit!
You inspire me so much (:
As a cristian I like to dress decent but with style & I could see that in you.
Don't stop posting!
God bless you.. and this blog 😀
I absolutely agree! I have been blogging for around 6 months, and started to get over my fear of putting myself out there and stepping out of my comfort zone. You inspire me so much! You are so right, we all need to embrace our insecurities and be strong in the people we are. NO ONE IS PERFECT! And I think sometimes sharing our insecurities on our blog helps other people realize that not everyone is perfect!
You are awesome Amanda!
Love Me, Dani Marie
Congrats on one year! This week was my blog's one year anniversary as well! LIke you this year has been such a growing period and I can't wait for more.
I'd love it if you could like my new facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/peachykeencaroline
I adore all of your outfits, they're so cute, but my favorite is that one where you're wearing the pink pants with the stripey top. And all of the ones where you're wearing your hunter boots!
Fashion and Happy Things
Happy blogaversary 🙂 Wonderful looks and cheers to another year!
Thanks for all the great fashion tips! Looking forward to another year of cutness.
Congratulations, Amanda! I was very inspired by reading this post. I would never have guessed by your unique and wonderful style that you had fears and insecurities. I guess we all do. I have recently gained a lot of weight from a thyroid problem after having been thin and toned all my life. I have been forced to recognize my other traits that I like about myself and not just my figure. We all have imperfections. But it is our beauty from inside that truly matters most. Fashion should be a fun way to express yourself. I am so glad you disregarded those critics. So glad you made it to one year and you're going to keep going! Very inspired and encouraged by you!!
Congratulations and Happy One Year!!! Thank you for never giving up, and for continuing to inspire your followers 🙂
I think you're wonderful and I love the fact that you have the courage to share yourself with all of us in such a public light! I still struggle with my posts, ruminating and picking apart every negative aspect. I hope that I can learn to embrace my imperfections the way you do because when you're as confident as you are, nobody even sees those imperfections. 🙂 Happy blog anniversary!
Congratulations! That is so exciting! What a great bunch of outfits. ; )
Congratulations on hitting a year! I have loved following along. Cheers to many more!
