Fossil Emma Satchel Review, Style File Friday

As I mentioned in An Intro to Buying Designer on eBay post, I recently purchased a new handbag for myself- the Fossil Emma Satchel. The other two main purses that I was using were given to me in a different time, and I wanted something free from memories. I had been looking at the Fossil Emma and Sydney satchels for 3-4 months, and it seemed like the perfect time to take a leap. Today I will be reviewing the Emma Satchel and sharing my thoughts on it with you- so far, I’m incredibly impressed with it!

4 Creative Bullet Journal Spreads

It turns out when it’s difficult to leave your room, you have a lot of time to plan and organise things- enter my 2018 bullet journal. I’m indecisive at the best of times, so I’m exponentially more so right now meaning that I’m moving slowly, but I’ve got my new bullet journal moving along. Today I’m sharing four different spreads that I’m using to keep my bullet journal simple but interesting; you can make it aesthetically pleasing without becoming the Picasso of Pinterest and spending hours and hours on one spread. Hopefully these will help you with your 2018 bullet journal….

How to Figure Out Your Future…

As many of you regular readers know, this is a tough time for me. I’ve got no idea what my future will be, or even who I am. It’s easy enough to say that it is whatever I want it to be (which I seem to hear so often), but it can’t be what I want it to be. Although it’s incredibly overwhelming, I spend a great deal of time thinking about the future and what it might look like (whether I like it or not)- while thinking about the future freezes me, not having any idea of what it holds also freezes me. This is going to be a very personal post, but one of my blog goals is to stay open with everyone.

An Intro to Buying Designer on eBay, Style File Friday

Although Ebay has been around for decades, I think that a lot of us forget that it’s ever there. For me personally, I don’t like auction-style purchases- I don’t like getting my hopes up on an item and then losing it, and I also don’t like knowing the cost of an item. However, a few of the bigger lifestyle and fashion bloggers that I follow have been promoting eBay and as a Canadian, it could very well give me access to brands that I normally can’t purchase. In line with my style resolution to take more risks, I decided to take a chance and buy my next handbag on eBay! I’m sharing my tips and tricks to tackling it.

When Self Care Gets Difficult

You can find countless self care posts on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter, but something that has come to the forefront for me is: when you actually need self care, it’s incredibly difficult to do. When life is a little tough, it’s easy enough to take some time and take care of yourself. When you have no idea what life even constitutes, doing one tiny thing, no matter what it is, feels like a mountain. These are the tiny ways that you can take care of yourself to make everything a teeny bit easier, that can help add a little bit of energy to your battery without using energy in the process.

2018 Style Resolutions

One of the few benefits of only sleeping 3-4 hours a night is that you have a good amount of time to think and plan. A lot of what I’ve been focusing on lately has been my wardrobe, for a few reasons: 1) it keeps me occupied, 2) I have to figure out if I like the pieces I like because I truly enjoy them for myself, and 3) there is an entire world of style and fashion information out there to keep even the most distracted insomniac focused. Making overall resolutions and plans is too overwhelming at the moment, but deciding on style resolutions is manageable (and useful); these are my 2018 style resolutions.

New Year, New Books

Welcome to the new year- I hope that everyone had a lovely evening. I’m going to start 2018 with Monday and Friday posts. Fridays will still be Style File Friday, but for now I think that Mondays will be books/hobbies. Once I’m eating regularly and normally again, I am hoping to have some recipes to share again (hopefully by February). I may put up a snapshot type post on Wednesdays when I’m out and doing more, but at the moment I mostly stay within a 15 foot radius so nothing too exciting is happening. (Then again, my 3 am rambling thoughts may appeal to you…) Today I’m going to be sharing the books that I received during the holidays and my upcoming/future reading plans.
