Happy Sunday folks! This is my last autumnal post of 2018, because after this I’m going to into full Christmas mode. Why? Well, this time last year I was just entering the first month of my “year off”. I say that because I quit my bartending job to take care of a sick family member, whom had major surgery. This followed almost 9 months of chemotherapy, recovery and I had to put my career aspiration on hold. Luckily, my family member is recovering which means I was able to go back to working part-time, blogging and able to start freelancing again.
It feels great to share aspects of my personal life along with my many posts about fashion, beauty and lifestyle tips. I know the beauty posts are lacking (significantly) for being a makeup artist. I’m trying to figure out what I should post here for that, since I mainly keep beauty themed content on my Instagram. If you have any ideas, requests or questions about beauty products that you want featured in a blog post, just comment below.
General Note: For my fashion content I like to incorporate older pieces from my wardrobe with recent purchases. This is why I don’t always link the exact items but similar pieces at different pieces in the, ‘shop my outfit section’. A reader emailed me recently asking why not all the items shown were linked, so that’s why I decided to include that general memo here.
Now enough about myself, onto the fashion portion of this post. The hat (old) is from Guess, faux fur vest (old) and sweater dress (new) are from Dynamite and the over-the-knee boots (old) are from Spring.
