Fall Wardrobe Staples

Fall Wardrobe Staples

Anyone else find themselves needing some new clothing staples, but can’t seem to find anything for the life of you anywhere?! 🙋🏼‍♀️

I looked in a few of my favorite stores over the weekend (Ross, Marshalls, Burlington, Old Navy.. gimme all the deals!) and to my shock, because I usually can find at least a few loves for a great price, but NOPE! I found ONE thing! And it’s not even near cold enough to wear yet 😭🥵 It’s a black and white distressed sweater with stars on it 🤩😍 isn’t it funny how tattered, ripped clothing is literally the chícest fad?! I’m here for it though 💃🏼🤩 I love how comfortable and care free, yet still put together, it looks!

I think my biggest trouble not finding anything was A) I couldn’t try anything on because dressing rooms are closed due to Covid 😭 and B) I refuse to pay too much for certain things🤷🏼‍♀️. For example, a really simple, pretty lace embroidered tank top (to wear under my sweaters): $29! For reals?!?! I will scour the internet and find it for less, OR! I’ll pay $29 as long as it come’s with 2 or 3, not just 1 🤪.

So my shopping at brick and mortar places was a complete bust. Which sucked.. but, at least we have the internet! I love to use Poshmark, Mercari, and of course, Amazon. And if you’re intrigued by Poshmark and decide to sign up, use code @PoshyMa for a $10 credit towards your first purchase! You can also sign up for Mercari and get up to $30 with my invitation link here!

But where I always seem to find what I want/need- Amazon takes the cake on availability/pricing/ease of looking for wtf you want 🤪🤣😁🥳 So ladies, best of luck this fall with your fall staples! It’s a different season then usual, so lets embrace the internet lol

Life Update

Life Update

Can you believe it’s APRIL?!?!?!🙀Was it not just New Year’s?! This year is already a quarter of the way through and it’s blowing my mind…

Marley girl is almost 2! 😭TWO!! 3 more months and it’ll be July (shut the front door! 😬)! She’s a walking, talking (in her own crazy language, of course, with a couple actual words thrown in🙈), wild and crazy (very crazy), bright little bundle of energy and I just love her to pieces! Parker just had her 5th birthday and I’m slightly freaking out that she’s starting kindergarten this 😳year!  Life is happening. These girls are getting big. And I’m so proud of them😚! …minus Marley’s hefty meltdowns and tantrums lately😒.. Those can go eff off✌🏼

Okay, next..

The husband. He’s gotten into gardening. It started with succulents. Those succers are so rad (see what I did there🙊lol). But seriously, the whole family is into it now. And I love that we have something we’re all really fascinated by😍. Watching those little cuttings grow little babies. We look so forward to looking at the plants every day☺️lol. And then we decided we could try and do some herbs (chives, cilantro, oregano, basil) and then some veggies (mini red peppers, sweet cherry tomatoes, and corn. Yes. Corn. P’s obsessed and she’s just too stinkin cute that we decided to grow corn for her). It’s so fun! We have quite the succulent propagation going, we’ll have to see what we’re going to do with all of them! Maybe I could do a giveaway? Any succulent lovers out there?!

As for me, I’ve caught a thrift store bug. Nate and I went to a few around our town looking for things to plant our cute succulents in, and though they can be a bit of a mess to search through (some things are like😒👎🏼 ‘ew how long has this thing been collecting dust’ and others are like 😍🙌🏼‘you spark joy in me’ and my heart flutters because everything’s like 2.99 or .65 orrr 1.99😮 (and I dunno about you, but this mama likes a good deal!) we found so much stuffffff! Mind blown! So many actual pots for plants with drainage, really nice baskets, wood boxes😍😍😍.. Just a lot of really cool, random stuff that we could put our succulents in. So, of course, I’ve gone back a few times, and realized that with a good eye, and patience, there’s a good amount of some really nice clothing hidden in the rows and rows!🙌🏼 I came home and I was like “Babe… I don’t think I’ll ever be able to buy another piece of clothing for less than 2.99”😂lol he was pretty stoked about it to say the least.

So life is pretty cool💪🏼. Everyone is finally getting better after being sick all last week (ugh, it basically feels like we’ve been sick off and on since November!😣). Easter break is next weeeeeeek🐰🐣 and during that week, the hubs and I are going to the Taking Back Sunday show on the 17th💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼😁😁😁 (eeeeek!)! And then it’ll be Easter.

I mean… anyone else mind boggled?! Easter already?! What’s next? I gotta google this.. oh duh🙈, Mother’s Day! lol well that’s exciting😊!

Anyone else feel like this year is going by way faster than last?!

Tidying Up

Tidying Up

2019 has kind of felt like it’s starting off on a very nice “tidying” note.. I think we can thank Marie Kondo and our undying love for Netflix annnnnd maybe Khloe Kardashion 🙆🏼🙈 (technically, I may cringe to admit it😬, but I really like her. Why cringe? ..there’s so many Kardashion haters out there that are adamant about their hatred for them (so sometime’s I just wont admit I like them🙈) but I’m trying to be unapologetically me, and I like her. She has always had an organizational bug in her 😍(I mean the cookie jars on the counters😍, the pantry😍😍😍, the closet😍😍😍😍.. She’s always had her shit tidy and I’ve noticed lol)😂😍

And I mean watching Marie Kondo’s “Tidying Up” on Netflix makes you want to pull everything out of everywhere, and make big ‘ol piles, and see what sparks joy and what doesn’t. 😂

And then,

put it all back, but organized 😌🙌🏼, neatly 👏🏼(even in perfect little rectangles. her folding methods are life. changing. 🙌🏼lol). Everything should have a place.👏🏼

That’s the worst part 🙈, for me🙋🏼, at least.. I get major analysis paralysis when it comes to keeping things in specific spots, and then, months later, my husband is like ‘this makes no sense’ lol because I’ve moved everything around instead of putting it back in the same place (anyone else guilty?!… just me?!) 🙈

So, I’m really tryyyyying!

To get it together.

Organize.

Get ready for it..

Not just the house, but the household.🙊

Households can get crazy and need some tidying of their own. And as crazy as it may sound.. Or maybe it doesn’t sound crazy.. I just thought it was weird on the show, how some of the couples mentioned that they feel like their life is more organized and put together after going through their tidying process… I GET ITTT! 🙌🏼 The more I’ve been organizing and getting my shit together… my shit 👏🏼 is actually 👏🏼 coming together 👏🏼 because I feel so much more on top of it after clearing through all the clutter and organizing.. It’s like I know what I want and I’m getting it💁🏼. Ariana anyone?! Lol sorry I had to🙊It’s so true though! I see it👀 (the beautiful organized homes all over Pinterest). I like it 😍(I mean how could you not?). I want it 🙏🏼(I do, it’s so true. I’m flipping out over the progress I have made, and though it’s nowhere near Pinterest or Insta perfect, it’s waaaaay better😌). I got getting it (it’s a work in progress 🙆🏼). I really am enjoying going through everything. I’m not full on Marie Kondo’ing it. But I did start with organizing clothing drawers, and then organized the kitchen pantry, and then the kitchen cupboards.. Then decided the girls needed a toy rotation because they have so 👏🏼much 👏🏼stuff 👏🏼! They literally weren’t even playing with everything and it was basically sitting there.. So! That sent me on a rampage of organizing all their toys into bins. And I have a cute little toy basket that they can fit enough toys into to play with for the week, and at the end of the week, we put everything aside, go “shopping”, put away last week’s toys, and then they get to play with their new ones for the week and so on (so proud of myself for finally doing this🙌🏼. My husband suggested it many times before 😏 but the challenge wasn’t calling my name until recently when I just did the damn thing 🙆🏼lol so pat on the back because it’s no easy task to go through toys and organize them into bins when your toddler wakes up way earlier than usual from her nap because she probably heard me going through the toys in her sister’s room. Yay me!😳 It probably took 2 hours longer than necessary with toddlers in the way. You are warned. It’s a timely, yet, life changing chore!) I think the toy rotation thing might need a post of its own because I could really elaborate but I got more shit to say about tidying so, onward!

That’s where I’ve been since the beginning of the new year people. Literally spiraling in this amazing “tidying” frenzy. But I mean really, this is a pretty cool year.  Going through all the amazing things we do have, and getting rid of the unnecessary crap 🙊things  (thank you🙏🏼), and donating it. Making space for the things we truly appreciate and love. Knowing where everything is (that👏🏼, is a time saver/life saver, in itself lol💃🏼), not being so stressed out and being more prepared and on top of it😌. Knowing that you can, and to just do it 💪🏼(instead of over thinking, doubting, spiraling lol)

You’ve got this 🙌🏼


Just get to it 😉 stop thinking about it. And go do it 👏🏼. I promise you, you will not be upset that you organized your night stand or medicine cabinet or closet.. However you start, where ever you start, you started 😘 and I bet you’ll love it and crave more (…thaaaaat could just be me🙈, I really enjoy this shit, but maybe not! You might love it too!)
