My computer is fixed! Nothing like a hard drive crash at the worst possible time, right? (Though there’s never really a good time for that, I guess.) Anyway, I’m back!
Favorites for the week:
1. My Ipsy Bag arrived!
I’ve been dying to share the goods with you! I’ll have a full review on Monday!!
2. “Normcore” made it into the dictionary: My mom actually sent me a text to let me know this. If you’re not up to speed, basically it’s a trend in which ordinary, “unfashionable” clothing is worn to make a fashion statement.
I don’t know about you, but I know a lot of people who are either really un-stylish or super trendy! Also, if you do a Google image search for “normcore” you’ll see lots of photos of Steve Jobs and Jerry Seinfield. I don’t even know.
3. My new project: I told you last week I had a new, huge project I was working on and I can finally announce it! I’m starting a new lifestyle website and (if all goes as planned) it launches Monday!!
This is something I’ve wanted to do for years and I finally did it! I’m so tired of not fitting into these lifestyle sites – they’re either geared towards moms, college girls, or some “group” I don’t quite fit into. And the sites I do end up visiting usually end up being “too” something – too preach-y about what’s healthy and what’s not, too elaborate (meals, decor, etc.) for my taste, etc. I’m tired of leaving websites feeling stressed out about the info I just read or feeling like I can’t have a cute guestroom because I don’t have a $25,000 budget.
So, since I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I decided to create it myself! I’ve pulled lots of women I admire in too – we’ll be providing info on everything from recipes and home improvement projects to funny stories and book reviews. I promise, you’ll find a reason to stick around and keep reading!! Splendry launches Monday, but you can follow the Facebook page now for a little more info!
