Recent purchases

Admittedly, not blogging as much does also mean that I'm not shopping as much and vice versa. But, during this time of year when there are crazy sales, it's hard to resist pulling the trigger on some things! I thought I would share some recent purchases and how I've styled them.

Endings and beginnings

To say that 2018 has been a challenging year would be a gross understatement. The amount of people I have had to say goodbye to, the stresses, the emotional roller coaster, so much change with even more uncertainty. And if that's not enough, on Friday, we had to say goodbye to our sweet beagle, Annie.

Life lately

A lot happened during the 3 months that I took a blogging hiatus. Many of it has not been the best, which is a big part of the reason why I took the time off. But, there were definitely some good things along the way - I should still be thankful. Regardless, this post is my attempt to catch you up on some recent life events. For the sake of not having a post that takes you an hour to read, I have other posts drafted that cover specific buckets of my life like travel, work, and Pilates. This post is a catch-all for the more general topics. Let's get started.

Random roundup

Man, it's been awhile since I've done one of these!!! Even though I took a break from blogging, I still took an outfit selfie every. Single. Morning. Some habits are hard to break! And I don't know. It's still nice to be able to look back at outfits. I will confess that sometimes, I will look back at my outfits to figure out my cycle! So if not for anything else, at least it's helpful for that purpose! Anyway, I promised I would try and incorporate those outfits back into the blog so here I am!

Travel lately - Joshua Tree

At the end of September, the husband's brother got married, so we flew back over to California for the festivities. They live very close to my family, so that made it convenient in terms of being able to kill two birds with one stone and see both families while we were there. Though, the actual wedding was in Joshua Tree about 1-2 hours away from my family. I had never been to Joshua Tree and honestly had no idea what to expect! It was a quick couple of days there, but we enjoyed it very much!

You will start seeing these photos of me every time we travel now. I've started making it my own little souvenir of our trips - finding a place that I can do the "open leg rocker" exercise. Though, I don't actually do the rocking part, I just hold the starting position of the exercise!

Black Friday-week shopping

I've been slowly buying things throughout this week because I feel like the sales start earlier and earlier every year. But, I've been trying to focus on a specific list of "needs." I was semi successful sticking to these needs...

Long time, no see

Well, hello there! No your eyes are not deceiving you. I'm actually writing a blog post right now. I can't promise you that it will be a normal Monday through Friday occurrence, or that I will ever even take proper blog photos again, but I do miss blogging, so I will do so when my heart desires.
