Affiliate links at no cost to you. thanks for supporting HTC! Hey there. It's been a hot second. I gave an update on Instagram a couple days ago as to why it's been quiet around these parts for a week, but the short run of the matter is that I got burnt out and discouraged and had to throw myself a bit of a pity party. As much as I dislike feeling super down and out, I've learned that I truly have to let myself feel those emotions (instead of burying and ignoring them) so that I can process them. It's the only way I've been able to pick myself back up and move forward after being in a funk - and to be honest, I've learned that I have to CHOOSE to get out of a . . .

The year is flying by and it's been a crazy few weeks here in HTC land. I've been traveling a ton (Philly and Idaho in the span of one week) and we're working through a few hurdles in real life that we've been handed this month. Nothing too drastic, but still - enough to throw me off my game a little bit and even put me in a bit of a funk last week. I'll be honest, the weirdest thing for me about the summer flying by, though, is the fact that we're getting closer and closer to the . . .

Whatever you want to call them, I'm declaring it the summer of that. It's no secret that wearing headbands and bows and scarves in my hair has been something I've been a huge fan of for years, so I'm thrilled that it's becoming such a trend. I remember when my hair started growing back in after chemo and it was still too short to do anything, so my mom got me a pack of baby bow headbands and that's all I wore for months. It was SO fun to have something to wear in my hair again and it . . .
*affiliate links Thewhat I bought in a post yesterday is in FULL swing, and yes, I have already spent way more then I should have. What can I say? I was very excited to what I bought in a post yesterday and splurging on the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan was one of the best choices I've ever made. No, I won't blow up the blog or Instagram TOO much with #nsale picks, but I shared what I bought in a post yesterday that you can check out here, and I'll be doing a try-on post once all my orders come in for those who are interested in shopping it. If you want to keep the tabs on that, make sure you check in on my Nordstrom Sale page, where I'll be updating everything during . . .
*affiliate links Yes, I was up at 1 AM last night shopping the Nordstrom Sale. And yes, I get it - hearing about the Nordstrom Sale is probably already annoying the majority of you. Totally understandable. I asked everyone over on Instagram a few weeks ago if they were shopping the Nordstrom sale and if they wanted content centered around that. It was split pretty 50/50, so I decided I would do a post on what I actually ordered from the sale and what I end up keeping (because I definitely won't be keeping it all.) I know that the blogging scene gets a little overwhelming during the Nordstrom Sale and I also know that Nordstrom prices may be a little bit of . . .
