Between sponsored posts, photoshoots and accounting classes, I try and find some downtime. I have always loved this bridge connecting Sculpture Garden and Loring Park. And while Sculpture Garden lays there, demolished, sculptures removed, trees cut down, waiting for its reopening next June, Loring Park is still there. A little green oasis in the middle of the Hennepin/Lyndale construction mess. I find this comparison to be a strange yet applicable allegory to my life. I’m moving from Minneapolis where I’ve lived for the past 5 years. The move is exciting, stressful. I tend to worry, question my decisions, look for signs. But then I remember that I need to take ownership, stick to my guts, and keep going. It’s time to move on, and I will be doing just that!

I’ve been dying to wear this olive skirt for a while now. Sometimes I wonder if it’s too short for me, but today it was just right! The elephant print top has been my go to during hot and humid summer days, it has an open back, and is so breezy, I’m so close to being a covergirl 😉

And now for the link up – share your looks, whether they are thrifted or not, and make sure to help spread the word about this link-up through social media if you have a chance! Thank you, can’t wait to see your looks!

February Blogger SWAP

We did it again, we swapped! I love doing blogger swaps and this time around I actually made sure I mailed everything in a timely manner. It’s just so hard to go anywhere when it feels like 30 below outside! Trust me, even going to work is challenging for me in these temps! Where is July?

This time my partner was Feier from Dash of Rose, she has a beautiful DIY and lifestyle blogger, and I loved getting to know her through the swap, because before that I’ve never heard of her blog. (That’s probably the number one reason why I like swaps so much! I get to meet new bloggers from new places!)

Putting the package together was really easy this time around, here is what I sent Feier:

And here is what she sent me:
As you can see we both sent each other hand made clutches, and I absolutely loved the travel size of  my favorite Oscar Blandi dry shampoo! And look at all these zippers! Love them! I am also planning on hanging that elephant trinket up on my Christmas tree this year, meanwhile it’s hanging out by the window in my dining room!
Have you ever done a swap? Did you like it? Would you be interested in doing one in the future?
Here are all the other bloggers who swapped, check out their posts, I know not everyone is posting today, but it’s always good to find new blogs to read 🙂
