*Knocks the dust and Girl Scout cookie crumbs off the keyboard.*
It’s been a minute since I published a post. I’m giving myself a lot of grace with blogging these days (see: my post on ‘unplugging‘ back in October) because the flower shop keeps me super busy and I want to make sure to leave time for the important things in life. Like Netflix. ;)
Speaking of, I’m trying to get my husband on board with House of Cards by starting back at the beginning. If he doesn’t get enthusiastic about it in the next two days I’m moving on to season three without him. Do you know the amount of self control it takes to not watch new episodes? Gimme all the wife awards!
For serious though, I missed you guys and didn’t mean to take almost a month off. February flew by, and despite some semi-deep flesh wounds from all the rose thorns, I’m happy to report that my fifth Valentine’s Day in the flower biz passed pretty painlessly. I had big plans to vlog about the week and give you a behind-the-scenes look at the
madness fun, but I dropped the ball. Maybe next year?
Now, here are a few of my favorite things from around the web last month:
Bratz dolls have always made me uncomfortable, but a creative lady from Australia is giving them a new lease on life with beautiful make-unders.
I loved Indiana/Elsewhere’s post about the new ‘norm’ of style and mommy blogging in which everyone seems to be ‘curating’ their lives into picture-perfect advertorials with the help of professional photographers, editorial calendars, and product placements. I miss the “old days” of style blogging. The 2010-2012 sweet spot of community: Kendi’s 30 for 30, Sydney’s Awkward and Awesome Thursdays, blogrolls that took up an entire sidebar, and cross-country clothes swaps.
Teni Panosian’s newest ‘No Makeup’ Makeup Tutorial video is my new go-to five minute face routine in the morning, with comparable products I have in my makeup stash. More on my latest beauty faves soon!
