I Know it been awhile since I last logged on and I was full of promises about how I was going to be more active...Truth is I fall asleep while I binge on pintrist after the kiddos have gone to bed. So bad. But, I wanted to share this photo gallery with you guys. Wish I would have captured more but I was living in the moment and I ain’t mad about that! I posted most of these on my insta page but hope you enjoyed the recap on the looks I wore to Hawaii- xoxo Karina
Its been a cool minute since the last time I posted. (Like, almost a year...Yikes!) Truthfully, after the birth of my second, I was too tired to stay up late at night and work on my blog. I wish I could just project my ideas into the universe and it magically appears on here without the huge amount of effort that goes into running a blog. For me, it does not come naturally as I'm not computer savvy in that way. With every widget, slideshow, insert or what have you, I was ready to pull out all my hair! Or maybe I'm making excuses and being lazy about learning to navigate through it? Whatever it is, I need to snap out of it, if I ever want this blog to grow. Instagram in itself, I believe, is a blog and the only social channel that can really promote your style/brand. You can catch me there if not here!
As a mom, I feel like we put so much pressure on ourselves to accomplish multiple things at once, without realizing the burnout ahead. Add a full time job into the mix and the guilt about leaving my kids overcomes the soul. I want to do this, I want to do that, I have an idea for this, let's shoot that. But wait, what's for dinner? My kids haven't seen me all day so they need my constant attention. I try to enjoy every moment rather than let it stress me out because I know these years go by fast. It's hard when your OCD is as bad as mine! Haha. Loads of laundry can wait, dishes piled up in the sink can wait, rooms are a mess. Don't get me wrong my husband helps out, but we both are tired after work and we have about 4 hours to get it together before the bedtime ritual begins. I'm constantly learning on how I can better manage my time but it can be overwhelming. I'm so inspired by all the mom bosses out there who seem to have it all under control. They key is to be organized and that has always been a struggle for me. I've always been a list maker, but somewhere along the lines I've lost that. So writing things down has helped so much because "mom brain" is no joke!! Haha. So with all that said, where is there time for me? For Us? Blogging??
Well, I'm not perfect and I don't pretend to be. I just want to fulfill my creative heart in the best way I can. Ok, enough with my boring rant! I just wanted to be open about where I'm coming from.
Thank you for following along with me on this journey through here or Instagram and being patient. My goal is to post more often, like once a week, so please let me know in the comments below what your interested in seeing or shoot me a DM on insta! In all seriousness, I intend to come up with a schedule and pour my soul into the creative process as much as I possibly can. Let's see where this year will take me!
I haven't been this excited about a watch in awhile and I'm a watch girl! My collection has grown over the years, and I have a pretty good selection rainging from silver, gold, rose gold, some with larger faces and some with more feminine faces. Some have crystals and others have leather straps. The point I'm making is, this watch has something my others have not. Underneath the glass lies a concave face! How cool is that?! Even the hour and second hands are shaped different. Love the steel mesh rose gold strap. It is adjustable so that's a plus, and It adds that feminine touch. Not to sound like an advertisement, but I really do love it and with another designer watch in a similar style flooding the social channels right now, it's refreshing to see something a little different and unexpected. Thank you KLASSE14!
Love strolling trough neighborhoods and exploring new streets. This weekend look is simple but chic with the "never goes out of style" utility vest. So practical and versital. It has many pockets to keep my son's legos and little nic-nacks he finds on our adventures! haha. Instead of the denim norm, I wore fresh crisp white trousers and my fave Isabel Marant dupes from Jessica Buurman! Thanks for stopping by have a lovely week! xoxo Karina
