Happy Friday guys! Thank God this week is over but I have to say it was a productive one. In December my budget simply fell off track, this is one thing I hate about the holidays and last year I did have some unexpected expenses. Well this week, I got my s*** together and set up my budget again. Surprisingly my biggest problem is not shopping but eating out. So I decided to set aside a cash amount for eating out and when I run out that’s it for me.
I also thought about Lent, well Nicole gave me the wonderful idea of picking a good habit instead of giving away something. Since I started blogging I have been neglecting my etsy store, I still carry the items that I have but I haven’t created anything new in a while. The worst part is I was just getting to the point where I was getting regular sale. So during the lent season my goal is to create at least 5 new pieces for my store, and to give it some TLC (such as give it a facelift, re-shoot some of the pics the give the store a more coherent look). I was even thinking of created a new banner and avatar. I’m getting excited just writing about it. Last but not least I want to start wearing more of my pieces, it’s funny but whenever I wear one of my creations strangers always ask me about them, yet I always feel guilty about taking stuff from the store. I also plan on bringing back some of my bestsellers like this one. As I am writing this I realized that this is actually a lot of work and maybe I’m overly ambitious. I will keep you guys updated on my progress and maybe even dedicate a post to my new creations.
Now about today’s look, this is a weekend outfit with my favorite shirt. I seriously have it in blue, white and red. I am also wearing here my new Nike free runs that are the most comfortable shoes EVER! Any weekend you can find me wearing a variation of this outfit. Since that time I was going to dinner with a friend, I carried my fancy red bag to make it less casual but I don’t think I succeeded. Have a great one ladies and see you back on Monday.
PS: The GIVEAWAY to win $400 to the retailer of your choice or just cash is still going on.
