Taking Some Time Off…

Hey lovies…so I’ve been thinking lately. I think it is time for me to step back for a bit. This place has been a huge blessing in my life, but lately it has felt more like a burden. I told myself if that was ever the case I would need to step back and reflect for a bit. Thank you for all your support and understanding. I am so blessed to have amazing friends from the blog world. It is a fabulous world, but we all need time to sleep!

Have you ever gotten burnt out from something you love? How do you know when it is time to walk away?

Much love,
B

This Day…

wed

 

Oh today.  The 26th of December.  It is a day I never look forward to, but today I am taking the day off to do some relaxing B things, if you will.  So, my loves – with that, tomorrow I will be back talking fashion and around to say hi.  Until then, I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!

What do you like to do when you have a day to yourself?

Much love,

B

They Say It’s Your Birthday…

 

…it’s my birthday, too!!  That’s right, loves, today I turn 27 and enter my late twenties.  I love birthdays – there is something fun about getting to have a personal day to reflect on where you have gone in the last year and where you want to go in the upcoming year.  Today is also my last day at my current job, which is extremely bittersweet because I love my coworkers, but am extremely excited about the new things to come.

 

Are you a fan of birthdays?  How do you handle changing jobs?

Much love,

Five Loves…

 

Life is a canvas, so we shall paint and create beauty.  I love what this image captures.  And, it totally has me wanting to put my toe shoes on and dance around.

 

Loving having a new book to read and get lost in, especially since it is a memoir – my personal favorite.

 

Getting to have time to hang out with one of my best friends and laugh as we catch up on life – that is one of my favorite things in the whole world.

 

I love this DIY bar cart.  The fun retro feel revamped gives it a chic look for any home.

 

This image so beautifully captures simplicity and peacefulness.  Trusting right where she is.  There is a contentment she has as she walks away from something, but also to something.  I love it.

What are some of the simple joys you are loving about life these days?

Much love,

B

Lost in a Dream…

Some days, or weeks (okay – or months…even years…yes by now we all are singing the theme song to Friends) just seem to be off.  Reality is not really where you want to be for whatever reason.  Something in life is hard, work is stressful, relationship drama, you’re feeling burnt out, or maybe all of the above seem to come crashing down at once and a vacation is not really an option – nor is crawling in bed and hoping it all goes away.  Those moments are when you will find me most lost in a dream.  I know it is not good to escape all the time, but sometimes a little day dream helps get you through those moments.  I am there now, and so here is a little glimpse into my day dream…

What do you day dream about when you need to just escape from reality for a moment?

Much love,

Taking Time to Live…

Mercedes-Benz has come up with one of the most brilliant ads I have seen in a long time.  The mind is fascinating.  I love this picture of the difference between the left and right side of your brain – and the way they are depicted is perfect.  For some it may be clear if they are a left or right brain thinkers – and some (like myself) it is a tougher call.  So, today I am going to embrace that I am not certain because I am some of both and depending on my mood lean more to one side over the other.  We have the left brain…

And then we have the right brain…

Seriously.  I am stumped.  I decide and then I contradict myself.  So instead of sitting here all day arguing with myself I will take some time to go live and enjoy the fact that I seem to have an ambidextrous brain because…

…and that is what I want this weekend to be about.  Living.  And inspiration.

What side of the brain to you tend to use the most?  What are you doing this weekend to enjoy life?

Happy weekend, loves!  I do hope it is filled with life and inspiration for you.

Much love,

B
