August 2014 Stitch Fix Review

You’re going to have to forgive me this month. My husband has been working 7 days a week and super long days, so I wasn’t able to get a video done before I sent back the clothes I wasn’t keeping. I also lost the price sheet so I can’t post prices this month. I think […]

July 2014 Stitch Fix Review

Woohoo! It’s my favorite time of the month! My Stitch Fix is here and I get to play dress up! I’m going to tell you something super shameful. Please don’t judge me.  I’m pretty sure the last time I wore makeup before today was when I took pictures for last month’s Stitch Fix! Oh, the glamorous […]

June 2014 Stitch Fix Review

  This is my third Stitch Fix! I love shopping this way. I’m actually saving money, because I’m not buying things on impulse any more. I used to run to Target with Darling Baby in tow, grab a couple things that caught my eye quickly before he got bored, and tried them on at home. […]

My Gradual Conversion to Minimalism

My Conversion to Minimalism

  Let Me Begin By Saying, I Love My Stuff I have never considered myself to be a minimalist, or even interested in the idea of minimalism really. I love my stuff. A lot of my stuff is really nice! But I recently had a moment of clarity that made me change my mind. However… […]

5 Ways to Love Yourself Through Depression

Untitled

I wrote this article last week after a year of blogging about stuff like food, kids and salt scrubs. To say I was nervous as I hit the ‘publish’ button would be an understatement. I was terrified that by essentially “coming out of the closet” as a person who lives with chronic depression, I’d lose […]

Add to Flipboard Magazine. Note: I have struggled with clinical depression since I was a child. It has been a constant companion I have learned to manage and while I am better now than I have ever been, every so often I feel it returning. I describe it to my husband as a “demon eating my […]
