Monday Motivation

With our kind of happening at the moment move, my new job, trying to figure out our way around a new city and everything else in between, I decided it would be wise to create some sort of a blog schedule to stick to. My Monday motivation is to figure what that schedule will be. I am leaning towards a two posts a week schedule, that will allow me to write one style and one beauty related post. I think this will be the easiest thing to do, since I can shoot an outfit over the weekend, as well as focus on a beauty product review or creating my monthly favorites round up. What do you guys think? I don’t want to aim for the moon at this point. I am preparing myself for an exciting, yet challenging stage in my life, and want to take things slow. If any of you have tips on how to do that, they would be greatly appreciated. I don’t want to give up on blogging, as I am enjoying it immensely. However, I don’t want it to take over my free time.

Sam and I went to Milwaukee for a hot second over the weekend. It was a really short trip, we left Minneapolis on Saturday around 8.30 am, and came back on Sunday around 6 pm. All we wanted to do is get keys to our new apartment, and move in as much stuff as we fit the night before into his mom’s car (which is a lot bigger than ours). When we were unpacking, some of the boxses’ contents was a total surprise to me. You see, the stuff has been packed since end of May, early June, so I forgot what was in what box. And the only labeling I did was write “Fragile” on some of the boxes.

One of the reasons I am really excited about our new apartment, and why we decided against getting a house, is the opportunity to downsize. I have piles of stuff I’ve been planning on using in my DIY projects, clothes that I will “someday” wear, office supplies, etc. I think I’ve been able to downsize significantly since we sold our house, but I want to organize everything as well. That’s why a couple weeks ago I bought two books on the KonMari method. I will definitely keep you posted on how that goes. So stay tuned.

All of the photos in the post are from my photoshoot for ALACLOTH! I have some rad jeans one too! I will definitely miss my Minneapolis blogger/social media family, so if you are in Milwaukee or know someone there, send them my way! I am a firm believer that blogger friends are the best friends!

  1. So fierce! Love your look hon! Why don’t you join my FASHION LINK UP ! Baci, Valeria – Coco et La vie en rose fashion blog

  2. I am loving this corset top! I have some ideas for styling a corset as well, but I am waiting for my husband to get home to help me get into my corsets! I say do what you can and want on the blog…I think 2 posts a week is fine. I have limited myself to 3 posts a week because I was getting overwhelmed. And now that I stick to my schedule, it has been much less stressful for sure. And remember to go easy on yourself if you miss a post. No big deal! Life goes on and readers come back. Come link up with me On the Edge of the Week if you can!
