Hey guys! Sorry for the sparse posts lately, but there have been a few changes in my life recently taking up a bit of time and energy! One change are my new Bonlook cat-eye glasses! At first I was a bit unsure about them…but they’ve really grown on me! They give me a new perSPECtive…get it??
The really big change is that I’ve put in my notice with my current job. I’m so thankful for the experience I’ve had with CASA and I actually get to stay with the organization in a new, more flexible and creative capacity. Big life changes are challenging sometimes but the Lord is already proving his faithfulness! I will be taking on a few part time jobs as well as focusing on my Etsy shop and developing new product! (Check back for updates soon!) All of these new opportunities allow me to use my creativity, learn a new skill, and have more flexibility in my schedule. I’m very excited!
I’ve also had some recent additions to my wardrobe from Daily Charms (check out the other items I featured previously, here), like this amazing blush pink tulle skirt! It’s so cute and only $15! I love the blush pink color, the longer length, and the several tiers of tulle creating a visually interesting affect. It’s a great piece for breezy summer weather!
And for an update on the ‘no shopping’ for the month of May with my friend Maria, it’s been going really well! Both of us have realized how much we use shopping and thrifting as a form of therapy, when really we should be seeking comfort from our Savior and support from our community. I honestly haven’t missed shopping at all! I’ve been able to stretch my wardrobe and combine pieces in new ways! My friends and I also did a clothing swap where we exchanged clothing and accessories instead of donating them! I ended up with several adorable dresses that I can’t wait to wear on here! And several of my donation items are now being utilized by friends. We had a blast enjoying time together (and eating cupcakes!) all the while helping our budgets! Maria and I have even talked about extending our ‘no shopping’ into June! We’ve definitely gained new perspective!
Hope you all are well and thanks for stopping by!
