My Kate Spade Surprise Sale Purchase

Every so often Kate Spade has a surprise sale for their online customers. Though they last for a very limited amount of time, you can snag some pretty good deals as discounts go up to 75%! It’s perfect for those of us who like to indulge, but don’t necessarily want to pay full price. The temptation to fill my cart with Kate Spade goodies was fierce, so I had to exercise some major self-control… The ad for this sale came at a perfect time because I happened to be in the market for a new wallet. My old wallet was big, bulky, and outdated, and I knew I wanted something simpler and more practical. In steps the Stacy, a slim wallet with 12 credit card slots, an ID window, four billfold compartments, button closure, and a zippered area on the back to put coins in. It’s small in size, yet…

The Denim Jumpsuit

Splurging on one particular item is a rare occasion for me, but this denim jumpsuit broke the silence in my spending. It’s a stylish, casual, comfortable piece that made a perfect addition to my closet! Even though it was a little pricey ($128), I bought it because it will work great as a transitional piece. Wear it with a tank top and it’s perfect for spring and summer. Wearing it with a long-sleeve shirt makes it perfect for fall. Since it’s so versatile, I know I’m getting my money’s worth. It won’t be sitting in the darkest corner of my closet waiting for the one season it can be worn. My one complaint is that I wish it came in a “short” size, or that the straps were at least adjustable. I’m 5’1″ and my torso is on the shorter side, so the straps and legs are a little too…

Why You Should Always Have Something to Look Forward To

Ahhh, monotony…boredom’s ugly cousin. Ever have those days where you feel like you’re running on autopilot? Well, you’re not alone. Sometimes the “blah” of our daily routines can set the tone for our week and make it hard to focus on the tasks at hand. I believe one of the biggest mistakes we make is neglecting our mental health. We know that exercise and eating well are important for healthy bodies, so why don’t we ever think to care for our minds as well? Just as it’s easy to get bogged down by stress, it’s easy to feel down because of boredom as well. Giving yourself even the slightest thing to look forward to helps remedy the situation. You don’t need a fancy vacation to pick yourself up out of a rut. Though they are nice to have every once in awhile, the truth is vacations are temporary. In fact,…

Authenticity in Social Media

It’s hard to be a stranger to social media. Some people manage to stay disconnected, but the majority of us that own any type of smartphone or computer participate in it in some form. Those of us that do partake in these little digital worlds find ourselves checking them several times a day. It’s fascinating that it has very much become a part of our lives. Clearly social media has evolved over the years as well. All of the platforms started out as a place to share photos and updates with people you personally knew or knew of, but the reach is even further now. Celebrities used to be these elusive beings, but now you get glimpses into their personal lives that they choose to share. These are real people posting about their real lives. It makes it all seem a bit more…well…human. Those with substantial followings also utilize their…
