Making the Most of Every Day

Hi Lovely!

I thought I’d give a little life update. I recently hit a bit of a bump in the road of life, but things are finally getting back to normal. I won’t go into it, but I had a bit of unexpected change and had to do my best to navigate it. I think most of us can agree that unplanned change is usually the most difficult to deal with. But, as I said, things are on the upswing, and I’m feeling positive about where I’m headed.

When life smacks us in the face, as it often does, it can be really easy to get down. I’ve been there.

With Great Power: Styling Jordandené Cropped Hoodie

Disclaimer: I received this hoodie from Jordandené in exchange for a review. All opinions expressed are my own. 

Hi Lovely!

While at Emerald City Comicon, I made a little stop by the Jordandené booth. While there, I spotted a super-cute cropped hoodie with the phrase, “With great power.” I was on a tight budget at the time and decided to pass. As soon as I got home, I regretted not buying it. The good news is that it’s now added to my wardrobe! I’m a member of the Jordandené ambassador program and was able to snag this baby. I love styling cropped hoodies with skirts and dresses to create a casual look.

My Handmade Hello Kitty Skirt

Hi Lovely!

I recently did a thing!! I made my very own Hello Kitty skirt using a sheet I found at Goodwill! I’ve been wanting to learn how to sew and knew this sheet would be a great first attempt at making apparel. And, it was! It was easy to make and I think it turned out pretty well! I plan on making either another skirt or a dress next.

Strolling Downtown

Hi Lovely!

I recently spent the day with my friend, Justin, walking around downtown and checking out shops. It was so fun! I love venturing around my city and it was a perfect day to do just that. The area wasn’t too crowded, the sun was out, and we drank some yummy coffee (which can make every day amazing).
