Oh my gosh! This is it! It’s launch day for The Cozy Collection! I honestly am so excited that today has arrived and that so many of you are already excited about this amazing little curated collection of handmade Christmas goodies!
I never used to spend money on shoes or bags. Don’t get me wrong, I have always liked clothes, and shopping, and being put-together. I just never saw the value in investing in my accessories, and the truth is, I have no idea why. Maybe it was because I wasn’t investing in quality accessories – I was buying cheap shoes, and cheap bags, and was then disappointed when they were uncomfortable or fell apart after only a few uses.
Now, as I have grown-up and gotten wiser with age (ha ha), I have come to realize that accessories are often the most important aspect of a well-styled outfit, and that investing in quality accessories really makes all the difference in the world. Now, I would far sooner invest in an amazing pair of boots, or a gorgeous bag that I’ll use all season than to purchase four or five different sweaters that I might only wear a couple of times each. Truthfully this philosophy does cross over into my clothing purchases as well, and I’ve really embraced the concept of “quality” over “quantity” in every aspect of my wardrobe.
My baby turned one this month. I’m not crying, YOU’RE crying. Ok, I lied, I’m definitely crying. I cannot believe I hosted my very last, first birthday party.
If you’ve been following me for awhile then you already know that I love to plan themed birthday parties for my kids, but I’m especially *extra* when it comes to their first birthday. I figure if I get nothing else right as a parent, at least each one of my kids will be able to say, “I did have a pretty amazing first birthday party, though!” Lol.
