2 In Life

the first step

They say the first step is the hardest, right?

Well, this has definitely been the case for me while I’ve been slacking off on blog posting. I won’t bore you with the details of the past several weeks {just the fun things!}, but suffice it to say that the holidays & work stress hit hard in December, and then it was honestly just easier not to post. And the longer I waited, the more awkward I felt coming back as if nothing had happened.

But… I’ve missed it so much, I’m throwing my discomfort aside and diving back in to writing and creating as much as I possibly can. Let’s just all hold hands, sing kumbaya and forget about the dark months of January and February, mmk?

And just like that, I feel better. So much better that I want to share all these fun things from around the web that I’ve been hoarding.

{ Stitch Fix } Have you discovered this gem of a site yet? Admittedly, I’m a shopper {“hello my name is Jess and I have a problem”}. It’s nothing to be ashamed of but I know it’s not everyone’s jam. Me, on the other hand… well, throw me into a Nordstrom Rack or any mall and I won’t need a break for 6 hours. SO… I really thought the idea of having a stylist that shops FOR you might be upsetting but au contraire. I had so much fun with my first “Fix” and encourage you to give it a shot. Get the deets here.

{ Mixing Patterns } On a related note, the genius stylists over at Stitch Fix shared some tips last week for mixing patterns. The style-cheater in me usually just finds a detailed example of pattern mixing that I can imitate. But maybe now I can try my hand at something totally unique (**gasp**).

{ Best Acted & Dressed } I do love infographics in general, but this one is especially fun to get pumped for Oscars fashion this weekend!

{ Love You Every 10 Years } Was there ever any doubt that Jimmy Fallon would kill it on the Tonight Show? Plus, who wouldn’t want to revisit 50 First Dates?

{ Brow Tip!Is it weird to covet another woman’s eyebrows? Well if that person happens to share her eyebrow routine, then you best believe I’m listening.

While I was away, what fun things did you discover around the web?

      That is so incredibly sweet of you! I love your blog as well and while I’ve been swamped lately (I can tell you know the feeling), it’s so great to have some support. I will most definitely participate as soon as I can! <3
