Hi guys! Oh lord, it’s been almost a month since my last blog post! Ahh! Things have been so crazy busy, I’ve barley had time to Instagram, shoot content or post on here. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to show off the NEW Ellie Activewear October collection I received, and also just fill you in on what’s going on & what’s coming up.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about friendships and relationships lately and how it’s kind of weird how they change as we get older. I feel like both come in waves- there are “seasons”, I guess. It didn’t really feel like that back in my 20’s. Or at least I wasn’t as aware of it. If we want to keep, and build, lasting/important relationships with the people we care about- it requires EFFORT.
If you’re like me, you’re probably holding onto every last second of Summer. Luckily I live in LA where it stays pretty warm until pretty much the end of October, but still. There is something I’ve always loved about TRUE Summer. Going to the beach, having barbecues, pool parties, being able to wear dresses and shorts until midnight without freezing your ass off…all of it!
Another thing I love about Summer? The fun DRINKS! Nothing better than laying by the pool with a cold cocktail in your hand, am I right? I’m good with pretty much anything from beer, to vodka, lets be honest. However, I was feeling fancy today while Rob and I were hanging out at home so I decided to take our bottle of rosé we were drinking and kick it up a notch. We had a watermelon on the counter that was ready to be cut up, so I poured it all into a blender, added a splash of vodka, a little lime and it was delicious.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, and I feel like every time I log into Instagram I’m reminded of it again. Social media has been changing a lot recently (I mean, it’s really ever evolving and there are constant updates) and I’ve got SO many thoughts and feelings about it. Rob and I were talking about all of the various platform updates when we were driving back from Big Sur, and it solidified my feeling that I needed to make a post about it all.
I’m not big into designer things, mainly because I can’t afford them but that’s beside the point… ha! I’ve always had the mindset about designer clothes and shoes that if I DID buy them, I’d be too worried about ruining them to actually USE them. You know what I mean? How shitty would it be to be wearing a nice pair of Louboutin shoes and they get spilled on or scuffed? I’d be SO sad to have spent a bunch of money and then have it be ruined.
BUT over the years, the one designer splurge that I think it’s reasonable to invest into is a good handbag. A good bag can last you YEARS if you take care of it right. And on the flip side, a cheap bag can last only a few months- the handles start to tear, the fabric can start to chip or whatever- it’s happened to all of us, right?
