This and That

A Pretty Penny, Style Blogger, Target Sunglasses, Scalloped Blouse, Casual Style, Budget Style
Is this really my first post since August 4th?! I was on such a roll! Also, these cute sunglasses were $16.99 at Target.

I’ll never be a ‘professional’ blogger, because I can’t keep a consistent posting schedule to save my life. There are too many lovely distractions: Frankie & Grace and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix; my Enchanted Forest coloring book; dinner dates with my parents; the pile of books I rescued from the used bookstore last summer; quality time with my girlfriends, sweatpants, and bottles of rosé; naps!

Oh, and work. Summer is typically a slow season at the flower shop, but we [happily] missed the memo this year. Business is good, the order board is full, and we’re about three months away from moving into our new space. I haven’t done a thing to prepare for the relocation, besides save a handful of items to an Ikea shopping list, but I’m not going to stress about it until at least September. ;-)

Now here are a few of my bookmarks from around the web this week. Just because I’m not posting on the Internet doesn’t mean I’m not creepin‘ on it!

    Amen to that list of distractions. I binge-watched Kimmy Schmidt in a weekend. Oops!

    I couldn’t be more on the same page about keeping a consistent blogging schedule! Every time I try something enticing pops up and stops me in my tracks!

    Consistent Blogging is hard! you really have to set some time apart to do it and still life can get in the way… I think the whole point of doing it is having fun! so who cares a few missed posts right?

    I can’t agree more! I’m relatively new to the blogging world, yet with school, friends, work, and Netflix it’s so hard to take the time to update the blog!

    Ah I feel the exact same way! I’m finishing up grad school, watching Netflix, and seeing friends. Before I know it, I haven’t posted in 2 weeks. Oopsies. I guess we just have to get in a groove again!

    I’ve been pretty consistent with blogging lately but with college starting back up soon, I’m sure that will have to change! Anyway, I always love your posts, even if they are a little sporadic :)

    Random thought: about consistent blogging, not sure if it’s just me but I find the 2 biggest issues are 1. time- choreographing the right photo for a post takes FOREVER! And how about the time to think up the post, get supplies…. 2. Motivation! When you get lots of new viewers and likes, posting regularly is easy ;) but when there’s a downturn in views, you wonder if anyone is even interested in what you have to say :) Just 2 pennies from me :)

    Awww I would love to be a professional blogger if I could! :) Sadly am far faaar away from that with my DIY blog :)

    Just starting out in the blogging world here; love this post because its really just a “this and that” kind of post. Nothing to fancy, just real. Also, I love Grace and Frankie so that too!

    I just started blogging. I hope I can stay consistent with it. I am very excited about and hopes it goes well. Those glasses are super cute.

    I totally feel you on the lack of consistent blogging! It’s so hard, especially in the fall when I have school on top of my regular responsibilities. This is the first time I’ve had a blog for over a year – I would get so frustrated with my infrequent posts and usually delete after a few months.
    Also – totally crushing on your flats! Where are they from?
