One of the best things I have done for myself this year is start my new Instagram page. If you haven't started following it yet, you can by going here. If you're already on the journey with me THANK YOU. It's the creative outlet I didn't know I needed, and it is also a great way for me to do one of my favorite things daily. Cultivate "girl time".
I love hanging out with my friends (aka mostly my mom and my sister), sharing great deals I've found, and just getting in a good laugh + conversation about life. When I began the page five months ago, I did it because I felt like my life was getting into too much of a routine. I was not doing much to spark my interest. Work. Home. Workout. Repeat. That was it. When my oldest son went off to college, it was a reality check for me. Children grow up, they begin to have their own lives, and if we aren't careful, we will watch them grow while our lives slip through our fingers. I have met some new people, discovered interesting pages to follow, and I am learning more about fashion and beauty which I reallyyyyy have enjoyed. I have been a single parent to my boys for a little over ten years, and I have learned to bargain shop pretty well. The purpose of my page is to normalize bargain shopping at every day stores like Walmart, Target, TJ Maxx, etc. with an occasional splurge every once in a while.
I am saving up for a Louis Vuitton :). You don't have to be an fashion expert (trust me, I'm not) or break the bank to be fashionable or have nice home decor. I am learning a lot along the way, so as I see great deals/cute items in stores or if I buy them, I am sharing them with you, just like we do with our girlfriends in real life. I am thrilled to be on this journey with you, and I look forward to all we will share with each other. If you find great deals or you happen to buy something I show on the page, use the hashtag #shopnwithme or tag me in your story or in feed post. I would love to see your finds and great deals too :)
If there's something you'd like to do to add spark in your life, why haven't you done it? Let me be that person to encourage you to DO IT. You only get one shot at this thing called life.
Share the page or this blog post with some friends you think might enjoy. Have a great day, and thanks for reading.
