10.28 Confessional

 

I hope you took my advice and made yourself a cup of coffee, because this is your Saturday morning read! I needed a space within my blog to be random, talk about everything that is going on lately, and what I am currently swooning over.

I have been blogging for almost 2 months now, and I am loving it so far. Meeting new, supportive people is my favorite part. I admit that I was afraid to get started. Getting involved with a blog is very intimidating, especially when they’re so many talented women out there. But guys, I realized this is a positive thing! Where can you find a place where you can literally lay out your flaws, your thoughts, your struggles and receive positive, helpful reinforcement? I am one blessed girl, and so happy that I took the plunge!

With that being said…

CURRENT BLOGS I AM OBSESSING OVER

Lauren McBride Blog

I love mamas who are real, no filter, and have the same style as me. She has it all, and I really enjoy reading all her posts, and look forward to new ones. Plus, Her Instagram stories give me a good laugh and are so relatable. If you have been living under a rock, and haven’t visited her blog yet, click here!

 

Pinteresting Plans

Yes, another fashionable mom who is a must read! Her outfits are goals and her boys are just adorable.  I am a subscriber and visit her blog on a daily basis. Her story is amazing and the love and faith she has in her marriage and family is inspiring. Click here to read her story!

 

CURRENT RANT

When I first started blogging I did so much research and everywhere I read said I had to have a “niche”. But, why? I want to be able to write about everything. This is a place where I can express myself, I don’t want to limit my blog to one or two things. I also don’t want to confuse my readers on who I am, or what I have to offer, but there are so many different things that bring me joy. I love design and home decor, I love fashion (and honestly what girl doesn’t?), I love spending time with my family and want to talk about my kids, and the list just goes on. The rebel inside me is screaming “heck with the niche”, and quite frankly the more I say “niche” the more I dislike the word altogether. Rant over.

 

CURRENTLY WATCHING

Supernatural  |  Season 13 (yes, can you believe it has been 13 seasons!) is out now. I have been a loyal viewer of this show from day one. If you can resist two good looking brothers, a quirky yet handsome angel, and a devil who deep-down you can’t hate, then this show is not for you. Seasons 1-12 is on Netflix now so if binge watching is your thing (especially during the cold, sick days), then I promise you will not be disappointed.

 

 

CURRENTLY LISTENING TO THIS PODCAST

The Lady Gang  |  Keltie Knight, Jac Vanek, and Becca Tobin bring you raw, unfiltered, mimosa driven entertainment each week. Since The Lady Gang I have given up on music, temporarily, and have been binge-listening to this podcast daily. Seriously guys, these are ULTIMATE stories of honest, unapologetic females finding their way through womanhood.

WARNING: you probably don’t want to listen while your husbands or kids are in the car.

 

 

 

 

CURRENTLY WEARING

My favorite eyeglasses are from EyeBuyDirect, and I always get so many compliments. I am HORRIBLE with glasses. I scratch them, break them, and then lose them so I cannot afford to keep spending a fortune. With Eye Buy Direct, it saves my prescription and preferences for anti-reflective and a UV coating (since I stare at a computer screen majority of my work day). They email me when they are inserting my customized lenses into my frames, and when it ships! Best part about it, they always have deals, so I can order my husbands glasses when I order myself a new pair. They even have prescription sunglasses! Right now you can get $10 off frames when you enter this special code: IF6HE9EF7T

CURRENTLY WAITING impatiently FOR

CURRENT FAVORITE ONLINE BOUTIQUE

I am swooning over ILY Couture store right now. Simple yet classy just speaks my fashion love language, and this store is just that. I am working on narrowing down my shopping cart because I just want everything, including this cute off-the-shoulder bell sleeve top! Click here to visit the store, or you can click the picture to the left.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CURRENTLY DREADING

My birthday! I am turning.. I don’t even want to type it.. but, I will be the big 3-0. I will officially be out of my twenties and in my thirties in less than a week from now. The only thing I am looking forward to is the cake. Ever since January 1st hit, everything went down from there. I lost my metabolism and gained 20 pounds, my body aches, and I feel like I am getting more wrinkles by the second. I am not sure if this is all in my head, but I am blaming it on turning 30.

Half (coffee) cup full time: Turning 30 forces me to look at where I am in my life, what I have accomplished, and re-evaluating my future life and career goals. Since this will be something I can dig into a little further, next week I will be talking more about this!

 

CURRENTLY INTO

Some very generic, funny graphic tees are my jam. Don’t get me wrong, I love dressing up, but what I love even more is dressing down. I am okay with running to the grocery store in sweat pants and a tee. If I could pick one thing to wear everyday, you better believe it would be jeans a t-shirt.

  1. That botique shirt is amazing. The color and style. I would attempt to wear it a few times right now before it got too cold. I don’t have a favorite podcast yet but with your warning alone not I want to listen to them. That last tee shirt… says I’m not getting ready today does the babies say me neither? Love it!!

  2. Definitely going to check out that podcast! I know what you mean, niche? why?! I feel lately that I’ve been too niched almost, but is that even possible?! Who knows. The blogging community is so great, that’s one of the biggest surprises.

  3. Thanks for the list of blogs to check out! I’m a new blogger too, so it’s really fun to see what others are sharing 🙂 I do a “currently” post as well…and am about to turn 30 😩

  4. I’m so bad about a niche too. I’m like I like fashion…oooooh look there’s a baby and food. Ha. 🤷‍♀️ I love the fashionable real mamas you linked to- I’m definitely going to check them out. I love small boutiques too.

  5. Ohh those graphic tshirt are so funny and cute! I have seen them all around but now when you mention its kind of cool having a funny graphic tee both my daughter and I could wear!

    1. Oh yes, the mother daughter/son ones are just too cute. My kids are getting to the age where they probably don’t want to match with mom!

  6. I loved the idea of sharing stuff around the current things happening in your life. In fact, with regards to you starting a blog even I would agree I was also quite worried when I started 1.5 yrs back but now I am quite happy and comfortable with my blog and the way I am able to engage with my users.
