Stitch Fix // Perfect Panties // New Perspective Video
Good Morning to you. I bring you life-changing information this Monday morning. Seriously, on some level, your life will improve by following these three links.
1. Stitch Fix: It's being talked about a lot amongst bloggers these days. Essentially, it's your own, personal online stylist. First, you enter all this info about your style preferences and body type. You can even link the stylist to a Pinterest board you especially like to give her or him a better idea of what you like. So then, my understanding is someone picks out clothes for you ($20 stylist fee) and will send them to you. If you keep all the pieces you get 25% off. Normally this isn't something that would appeal to me, but as I get more involved in the parenting process and less involved in my appearance, I find myself wishing someone would help me shop and get dressed everyday. For moms who don't want to give up, but don't have time to coordinate clothes for themselves, Stitch Fix is awesome.
2. My search is complete. I have found them. Eureka! I kid you not. Underwear has the ability to ruin your day. No joke, I have honestly taken off a pair of underwear and thrown them in the trash (and not at home) when they were causing me such grief. So when I was at Target the other day, I decided to take a risk with these "No Wedgie" undies. Later that day, I was with a friend who told me she had recently bought some great underwear. She was raving about how fantastic they were. Low and behold, same ones. In fact, she was wearing them. Then our other friend, who was with us, entered the conversation kinda late. I tell the honest to goodness truth, turned out she was wearing them, too. I tell you this because I am certain most women spend most of their life searching for the perfect underwear, with little luck. Go get you some of these. They aren't especially fancy or anything, but WHO CARES?!!!!
3. I typically don't care for inspirational videos of any kind. I hate crying, especially when someone is pulling at my emotions, almost forcing me to cry. But this video is pretty cool. Being a mom is incredibly hard. It's so much harder than I ever dreamed, and one reason it is so difficult is because we are full of self-doubt. We have no "supervisor" to pat our backs, no overhead to acknowledge the good work we might be doing, no raises, promotions, or accolades of any kind. This video is very encouraging. Watch it and quit beating yourself up today. Do your best. I'm going to do mine. I love my kids, and they know it. I think that's what really matters.
Hope you have a stylish, wedgie-free, validated week!
