Last week, I attended a super fun blogger event at jb and me in Holland. There were super yummy snacks, desserts and wine. We each got a 20% off discount code to shop, and there were a bunch of door prizes raffled off! I won a candle that smells exactly like a freshly cut Christmas tree, and a cute burgundy brimmed hat! I also bought a cozy new cardigan, and a black ribbed turtleneck dress. Both of them are in my 30-item closet challenge, so I'll share more on those soon! jb and me is also offering my readers a 20% off discount to shop online, so be sure to head over there! The code is "blogger7".
This time of year always throws me for a loop. It's completely dark out by the time I'm out of work, and I'm tired and in bed by 9:30pm. So silly! I know I'll adjust, but it's always hard in the beginning. I've been working on simplifying my life like crazy right now. It's slightly chaotic to get to that point, but I know once I've accomplished all of my projects, things will feel good. They are already feeling better. I'm working on a new blog design, which will help with time management going forward. I cleaned out my closet to 30 items and that in itself has been huge. I promise to do my initial post on that on Monday, for sure! But otherwise I've just been donating and purging our apartment, being happy with empty space and clean corners, and getting my life organized! It's a good exercise to do before the new year begins.
Other than that, not much else is new! It's a super gray day today, and we just saw our first snow! It only lasted a few minutes, but it's always kind of exciting. I hope it doesn't stick until after Thanksgiving, but I just love a white Christmas. I'm really looking forward to the holidays this year. As soon as we're done eating turkey, I want to go and cut down our annual tree and decorate our apartment. There's nothing better than a hot cup of cocoa, a Christmas movie, and the lights of the tree in your living room. Ah! So excited.
Okay, I'll be back on Monday with a recap of the 30 items I chose for my closet challenge... and I'll start doing some outfit posts. Unfortunately with my schedule, I can't blog every outfit, but I'll try and Instagram more too if I can. I've been using Stylebook to organize my closet, and I've been creating "looks" and putting them into my calendar, which is so helpful! I can pretty much plan my outfit the next day laying in bed. I love it! Anyway, have a great weekend! xo
