I went thrifting! What did I find? #3

I found these 1970's vintage Hummel plates. They are Christmas plates but I decided to go ahead and list them now. Has anyone heard of Christmas in July? I love the idea of celebrating Christmas twice a year. 

I am obsessed with this Peanuts Woodstock tank top

I love the tassels on this LC Lauren Conrad top

This is a basic Torrid Tank but I adore the burgundy wine color

One of three Knox Rose pieces I picked up. I've been obsessed with Knox Rose and it has been a bread and butter brand for me lately. 

I picked this tank top up because it is Harley Davidson. The graphic is worn so that was disappointing but on name alone I'm hoping to sell this. Otherwise, I will probably just keep it for myself if it doesn't sell. 

My second Knox Rose Tank top. The third one already sold. I think this is a great piece for summer. 

What are you currently thrifting? Do you go to garage sales in the summer? 

See something you just can't live without?

I love these purple wedged shoes

I love this clear card box I was thinking of something like this or a birdcage for cards
I ended up doing virtual invitations which I loved from Green envelope but I also love Shutterfly for physical wedding invitations

I love this dress for a bridesmaid dress. It is very similar to the one my friend and future sister in law is wearing for my wedding.

My wedding finds on Amazon

Since my wedding is coming up in June I decided to take a look at Amazon and see what was available. They have so many gorgeous things for a wedding. Here are a few of my favorite pics. 

I love this Dusty rose pink tablecloth that cascades. It is perfect for a blush pink wedding. 

These rustic table number holders are adorable. 

I love this lace tablecloth. 

These Battery operated tea lights make a great table setting 

I love a canopy like this either on a trellis or hung from a tree 

I got a very similar guestbook and I can't wait to use if for my wedding. It makes a great keepsake.

I went thrifting! What did I find? #2

I went thrifting again and found so many amazing pieces that I just couldn't pass up for my Etsy shop and Poshmark closet. 

I found this 

Vintage Three Legged Porcelain Hinged Trinket Box With Raised Dot Trim

I thought it was gorgeous and I could not pass it up. 

It was owl central today at the thrift. I would have taken all the owls home with me if I could. But, these two pieces really stood out to me. This little I believe it is ceramic owl figurine and then the owl candle that had never been used. 

I adore these floral milk glass bowls. And these American Limoges plates are fantastic. 

You can find my Etsy Shop here 

I love these Kathy Van Zeeland shoes that I found. I love them for a wedding. If they were my size I would have kept them. 

You can find my Poshmark closet here 

Let me know in the comments if you like these thrift with me blogs?

My 8 year blog Anniversary!

It's hard to believe I've had this little blog for eight years now. Considering I didn't write a blog post at all in 2020. Well, let's just say it was a crazy year. I think it was crazy for everyone. In retrospect their probably are things I could have blogged about but I had so much going on physically, emotionally, and spiritually that my writing and sadly this blog got put on the backburner. But, it feels amazing to be writing and blogging again. I feel like I've come home. 

I only wrote three posts in 2019. But, I will share my most popular two posts from 2019. Looking back it was all about fashion and beauty which is not something I've blogged about much lately. But, my heart is still in fashion and beauty. 

However, lately I've been more into sharing my experiences, hopes, and dreams.  I hope everyone likes this sort of content. I will eventually get back to fashion and beauty posts. But, my goal for 2021 is to write no matter what. Even if I don't think I have anything worthwhile to say I still want to write. Even if no one reads my blog I still want to write. I wrote about this in my previous post consistency is key

My most popular post in 2019 and really ever on this blog was: 

My second most popular post in 2019 and again one of my most popular posts for this blog

Unfortunately, I never finished my project pan so that means I will eventually end up doing another one that I will finish this time. 

I'm excited for my 9 year blog anniversary! And I'm excited for what is to come with this blog.

Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter!! I hope everyone had a great day! 

My Easter was not too eventful this year but I did go to my future mother in laws house and actually got to color eggs. That is something I haven’t done in years. It was so much fun and I forgot what a great family activity that is. 

We used Paas iridescent kit. At times it was a little hard to get the stickers to stay on. But, overall it worked great and turned out beautifully. 
Then on Sunday I went to my aunt and uncles and we had brunch. It was great spending time with family. 
I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!

Progress not perfection

Recently, I made a goal to list at least three things on Poshmark and/or Etsy everyday, to network with more people on social media, and blog everyday in April. Yes my expectations where high and it was inevitable that I would not be perfect and miss a day here and there of my goals. In the past I would have just given up completely on my goals. I put so much pressure on myself to be perfect and do everything right but that is never going to happen no matter how hard I try. It took me a long time to realize this. 

That is why I love this saying progress not perfection. Maybe I didn't get three things listed everyday but even one thing is progress. Maybe I didn't reach out to people and network everyday but that's okay. It doesn't mean I'm a failure. And I missed some blogging days this month but at least I'm still blogging. That's progress.

There were months and months where I threw in the towel and gave up on my goals and dreams for various reasons. Some things I am still kicking myself about and other things I am just trying my best to do again. Blogging being one of those things. 

I just renewed my domain for another year and I've had this blog going on 8 years now. I'll write a post on my blogiversary which technically already passed. 

So why do I love the saying progress not perfection? Because eventually the reach for perfection has to be thrown out the window. It’s all about what we can reasonably do. And we need to not beat ourselves up for the things we can’t do. In the end that only will cause us more frustration. 

Today, I encourage you to seek progress not perfection. Do what you can and don’t beat yourself up if you don’t get everything done. Each day is a new day to begin again.
