It’s funny how sometimes things in life find us right when we need them. My friend (and former roomie) Danielle and I ended up exchanging Christmas gifts pretty late this year, but, it turns out that kind of worked out. Danielle bought me a copy of I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson.
Last weekend a snowstorm hit Kansas City and I welcomed it with open arms. The snow was a perfect excuse to stay in my apartment all weekend without any judgement.

I love writing but… I obviously am enjoying this whole happy life thing, too. I’m going to try to stay disciplined and get back to the weekly posts. I just have to stay disciplined.
Nothing makes me feel more confident than a good outfit, but sometimes shopping can be…. not great. I’ve been using Stitch Fix for some time now. I entered my sizes, filled out a style quiz and linked my Pinterest page and I get personalized boxes with 5 items every month. (You can get them as often or as little as you want.) I love it. I try styles I may have never thought would be flattering or would have thought to try before. Here is my October box.
