After last month's Stitch Fix, which was so much better then my first fix, I promptly rescheduled my fix to come again in May, instead of June. April's fix was so close to perfect, I was hoping that May's would be a win. Well, I guess I was pushing my luck because this month's fix wasn't jaw dropping. Here is what I got: Market & Spruce Barrymore Solid Pleat Detail Top - $48.00. Color was spot on, but the cut made me look boxy and the material was super wrinkly. Not a fan of material that needs to ironed. Status: returned. Papermoon Crissy Spacedye Cross-Back Knit Shirt - 44.00 The material of this shirt is so soft and light - perfect for . . .
It's been a little quiet here, but I promise I have some big plans in the making; new changes coming and thoughts to share. Dustin and I are getting ready to leave for Calaveras county fair this weekend and to see the Redwoods so we can check it off our 101 in 1001 list! Speaking of my 101 in 1001 list, I realized I haven't updated it in a while, so here are some things we've been able to cross off: #4: Get 50 followers on my blog- As of today I have 439 Likes on Facebook and 130 Followers on Bloglovin. HEY! I DID IT! It's been so much work but it's been so much fun. #11: Go a whole month without drinking soda: I achieved this in February and it was a huge . . .
Let's talk about email: namely how I used to think it was on it's way out, but how it's now one of the most important communication tools I have as a blogger. Between getting updates from my favorite reads, communicating for collaborations and not missing a deal on Ulta, my inbox is constantly full. That being said, I have found a few email services that I don't know how I lived without before and I think EVERYONE (bloggers and non bloggers included) could benefit from them: Unroll Me. When I started blogging, my email account seriously got out of control with how many emails I was getting. Between the comment replies, sponsored content offers, blogging . . .
There has been a very interesting article going around the web recently about a scientific study that was conducted between dogs and their owners. It showed that when a dog and owner look into each others' eyes, the same chemical is produced as when a mother and child look into each other's eyes. Interesting stuff, huh? If you follow me on twitter or instagram, you'll know that I had a pretty traumatic weekend. On Thursday, I noticed that Rosie would not stop licking her back left paw and upon further inspection, I saw two hard twigs poking out of her skin. After grabbing tweezers and sitting over her to keep her steady, I pulled out two foxtails that were . . .
One of my April goals was to improve the quality of my Instagram feed and grow my followers. After working on my photo composition, taking the time to adjust lighting, and even using my real DSLR to take photos and transfer them to my phone, I decided I was ready to grow my following. I had participated in one instagram loop giveaway before and had so much fun meeting new bloggers and watching my numbers grow, so I wanted to get in on one again. I looked for opportunities, but none were really coming my way and the month was quickly passing me by, so I thought to myself: "Hey Chels, why don't you just put one together?" So, having virtually no experience, I . . .
