Wake Me When I’m Rich

WMWIR Ellen Tailor 5

We all have that one friend who’s a coffee fiend! You’ve probably got a few friends that fit that description. Hell, maybe YOU are that person. If that’s the case, you need this tee in your closet!

WMWIR (which stands for Wake Me When I’m Rich) is the creation of a girl with a passion for fashion and a dedication to design. Many of her tees are perfect for fans of the state of Ohio but she’s branching out and releasing pieces that are more mass appeal. Here are just a few of my other favorites…


I appreciate all of you who’ve taken the time to read and support my blog. Because of that, use the code “ThanksEllen” at checkout to receive $$ off your WMWIR purchase! (I’ll take the Alexander Made Me Queen tee, please. :) )

Thank you to Llorac Photography for these amazing pictures with WMWIR founder, Annastasia Filippidis, who just so happens to be my beautiful cousin and my sister, Yanna, for modeling as well.

Early Black Friday Sales

I have to stop. I’m cashing in on Black Friday sales early but the problem is I’m buying things for myself! Eek!

Baublebar’s new collection is 30% off in an early sale with the code “EARLYBIRD.” The Afterglow collection is beautiful! I picked up both sets of rings but here are some of my other favorite pieces. (It took everything in me not to buy the Sugarplum Collar.) You can check out the entire collection here.

The Pic That Made Me Get My Shit Together

The day before the Hometown Throwdown I stressed about what to wear to our day long country music event. I knew I’d be taking plenty of photos and wanted to make sure I covered up my problem areas. Sunday came and Fitz surprised us with shirts.

#HometownThrowdown is FINALLY here!!!

A photo posted by • E L L E N • T A I L O R • (@ellentailor) on

What a sweet gesture! I put it on and noticed it was a lot tighter around my waist (my #1 problem area) than I wanted it to be. I was wearing a vest with fringe and thought that’d help cover it up. I didn’t feel 100% comfortable in the shirt but wanted to wear it because Fitz was kind enough to have it made for me.

I was self conscious the ENTIRE day but pushed those feelings aside and was so happy to meet so many of listeners! Hundreds of photos had to have been taken and most were from the chest up, thank GOD. Fast forward to Tuesday at 3:50am.

I woke up this morning and saw this photo someone posted on my Facebook page. What the HELL happened to me?! Sure, my waist is my problem area but that was not something I’d seen in a LONG time. REALITY CHECK!


Was I off the wagon? Sure. Did I think I’d fallen off the wagon and let it run over me? Nope. How did I get so out of hand…again?! To Anne, the person that posted this photo, thank you. This was what I needed to get my sh*t together.

So what now? I’ve got a date with my trainer, Karen, TODAY. We’re going to work out AND create a new program that I can use with my gym (thanks Precor Home Fitness!) My DietBet Challenge also started this week, too. I bet $30 that I’d lose 4% of my body weight in 4 weeks. If YOU need some motivation, join the Challenge! It’s not too late. But this isn’t a plug for anyone or anything. I’m simply sharing what my plan is moving forward.

Thanks to everyone who’s been following my journey. It’s not always easy. Sometimes you mess up. Insert some profound quote here about falling down and getting back up again. Meh. Wish me luck on day one.
