Is stream of conscious blogging even a thing anymore? I feel like blogging has become very business-y lately, with ’10 ways to to the” and ‘5 ways to do that” for every post. Which I DO write (GUILTY!), but sometimes I just want to write random things I’m thinking about. My mind tends to ping pong lately from one subject to another, so perhaps this post should reflect that. I’ve also had the flu this week and had sick kids at home and I’ve been homebound for days. I may be going a BIT stir crazy.
Are you still with me on this? HA. Let’s begin the randomness.
I just got the new Boden catalogue in the mail, and I want to cut out about six pages of it for inspiration. I mean, these heels! I want my style to be about extremes this Spring, where you wear a fancy dress and cute sneakers, or ripped jeans and gorgeous heels.
The top I’m wearing above, which I adore as it gives me that bodysuit tucked into jeans look you see everywhere on the celebrities, is now on sale. While I’m disappointed I bought it at full price, I’m happy for you if you snag it for less.
This dress (worn here), is also on sale, and I would get all colors if I were you. Size up if you want a looser fit, wear your regular size for a body con look! I have it in black and wear a size small.
My daughter is obsessed with making origami, especially pieces of clothing made of paper that she gives to me. She asked if I could put them on my blog and Instagram because they are about clothes and shopping. Isn’t she the cutest thing?! Look forward to seeing that soon;)
I got a mani today for the first time in months and the nail lady was horrified by the state of my cuticles. I’m not the only one who waits months and months to get a manicure, right? I paint my nails on the reg, I just don’t get them professionally done that much.
I just joined Snapchat last week (find me, my screen name is becauseofjackie), and I’m obsessed! It’s a whole bunch of randomness, but it’s so refreshing to get past the staged nature of Instagram and just share a bit of your life. I’m all in.
It’s going to be in the 50’s all next week and I can’t WAIT to open up my windows and air out this sick house of mine. It’s almost time to spring clean and get rid of some of the stuff we’ve been holding onto.
Finally, I’ve been slacking since last winter on some of the holistic remedies I’ve used to stay healthy (which is obvious, because I’ve been sick every other minute this winter.) I’m all about taking my probiotics, as well as Elderberry extract daily, Apple Cider Vinegar, and some essential oils I’m trying out that a friend sent me. Mama needs to build up her immune system….
Tell me, what do YOU do to stay healthy this time of year?
