Happy Opening Day!

So today marks the official start of the baseball season {at least in my mind}.

As I am stuck inside an office all day I will be scrolling through Facebook and Instagram living vicariously through friends and family, that are just down the street from me, enjoying the festivities.

Check It Out...

Last week I mentioned a little opportunity I had been presented with & today I am going to share with you all just what it is. An incredible jewelry company by the name of Outfit Additions reached out to me a few weeks back about creating some outfits, using their jewelry of course, on their polyvore site. I was extremely flattered and excited to be asked and of course I accepted immediately! Once the outfits were about done I was asked if I wanted to do a series of blog posts talking about the outfits I had put together! Seriously, writing about fashion and jewelry, yes please!

So the first of five posts is currently up on their site now so go on over & check it out!

Let me know what you think!!


Happy Monday everyone!!

Hello there!! :)

It has been a while since I've posted & I hope that those of you who have read my blog in the past can forgive my long {way too long} absence recently.

Allow me to explain the best that I can....

I have this thing, where I find something that I truly LOVE to do, whether it be knitting, reading or blogging, and I go full force with it. I am so passionate about said activity that I burn myself out with it {in turn needing some time off}. I need to learn to balance everything out, take a step back and not over-do it.

So, here I am, back with a new perspective... I can't worry about "what will I post about tomorrow" or "I hope everyone will like what I have to say" as much as I need to focus on "I can't wait to write my next post, I'm so lucky to have this outlet."

I can't let these things that I love to do stress me out, it defeats the purpose. I'm trying and I'm learning as I go.

This realization has come in the form of an awesome opportunity I have been given, to work with and write a few posts for an incredible jewelry company. It will be a series of five posts {one a day... starting tomorrow & concluding next week}... I have had so much fun creating these posts & I can not wait to share them with you all in the next week.

Here is what you can expect from me in the future... I will be posting two to three times a week {in attempts to keep my thoughts and posts as interesting & fun as I can} and promise to not over do it & not try to be anyone else other than myself! :)

Thank you all so much for reading this blog of mine & I hope you continue to do so!!

Have a great day!!!

Insta-Lately... It's been a while

I haven't linked up in a few weeks to share my Instagram pics, mainly due to the fact that I have failed miserably in the department of uploading to instagram enough.
