5 Fab Finds Under $50

Monday, January 18, 2021

I'm all about basic, functional outfits lately that are grounded in classic style. After I put this collage together, I realized that I had unintentionally chosen items that work incredibly well together. Whether you buy one item or all of them, you won't be disappointed.

Weekend Dispatch

Monday, January 11, 2021

What a year it has been, and we are only 11 days in. Sheesh! Not off to a good start, but I have hope that the year will get better. It's been hard to focus on anything this week. For the first time in months, I actually watched TV. On Wednesday one of my Facebook friends posted that protestors had stormed the Capitol and managed to make it inside. Immediately I turned on CNN. I don't think I've watched an actual TV in over a year. I stick to Netflix, Hulu, and Prime Video. So, you know it was a thing when I watched TV. Anyway, how is everyone doing? I know things are pretty heavy right now. Just want to check in to see how everyone is handling our current state of the union.

If you need a distraction, here's how I've been spending my time lately.


Remember To Take Care of Yourself

Thursday, January 7, 2021

I had a different post slated for today but in light of Wednesday's horrific events in our nation's capital, I decided, at the last minute, to shift gears. When something as monumental and as disturbing as the insurrection on the Capitol building occurs, it's easy to succumb to feelings of terror and horror. As soon as I saw a friend post about protestors storming the Capitol, I immediately turned on the TV (something I haven't done in months). For the next two hours, I sat mesmerized in front of the TV. I couldn't focus on anything else. Then I began to obsessively check social media for updates.

After a few hours, I was emotionally overcome and overwhelmed. I needed to step back and step away. I turned off the TV, got in my car, and ran a few errands that were planned for earlier in the afternoon but obviously never happened. It was good to take a break from the noise. But more importantly, it reminded me how important it is to take time to take care of yourself.
