I've been trying to figure out what to say in this post for weeks now. Do I share the whole truth with you or do I just say "sorry I've been absent from the blog for months" and move on from there. You have been with me for a while and you've seen/read my many ups and downs in life and I thought that you deserved to know the whole truth. It's a hard thing to come to terms with but once I admitted it to myself and recognized the problem it made it easier for me to try and get better. The past few months I have been severely depressed. I didn't realize how depressed I was until the day I told my mother that I finally got a new job. Her reply to me will always echo in my mind. She said, "Is that why I finally see a smile on your face that I haven't seen in months."

Taking two weeks off from blogging was not planned at all. From day one of starting this blogging journey I always promised myself that if I ever got to the point where I hated blogging and wasn’t happy I would stop doing it. With working 40+ hours a week and trying to remodel and move into a new house, things got a little chaotic and stressful. I found that on the weekend I always wanted to be working on the house but yet felt guilty for not doing anything for the blog. I was then in this constant battle of being upset that I was feeling guilty working on my house and was constantly torn about the future of this blog. I have always felt that it is super important to be happy with yourself and your life. Truth is I wasn’t happy and every time I thought about the blog I got sick which is why I took a step back. I didn’t want to fill the space of my blog with halfhearted posts in order to just have something new posted that day. Instead I wanted to give myself time to enjoy the new adventure that I was starting in my life without guilt. It’s hard to find the perfect way to balance everything in my life but I’m trying to adjust.
To be honest, I still don’t know the future of my blog. It’s been such a huge part of my life and I cannot imagine not continuing it. This blog has brought me so much joy, friendships, and laughter over the past years. I just want to continue to enjoy doing it. As I learn to adjust I just hope you will continue to support me. Please know that I will always value and am forever grateful for each of your love and support. With all this said, I will see you tomorrow with new posts.

The one great thing about blogging is that I've come across so many great companies. Outrage Fashion is one of those sites I can't believe I didn't know about before. They always have the most stunning jewelry available at super reasonable prices. Each piece is high quality quality and is so unique. I always receive compliments when I wear jewelry from Outrage Fashion. The other thing I love about the site is that they are always updating it with new pieces that are even more stunning. If you haven't visited Outrage Fashion before you should go now. These are just a few newer pieces I'm madly crushing on right now-all under $32!

I'm a very visual person and looking into a blank empty space with bare white walls makes it hard for me to put a room together. I have an inspiration and photo that I'm trying to work around which was a help when it came to choosing wall colors (although I still can't pick which grey to paint).

I don't know about you but I've been feeling rather blah lately thanks to the winter weather and a crazy busy work schedule. What better way to give yourself a little "pick me up" than with some great new beauty and hair products. I've teamed up with Misikko to give away a 6oz bottle of Hana Shine Shield Thermal Protectant ($50). This serum is one of my favorite-it's light weight and super moisturizing to help with dry winter hair. It also gives your hair gorgeous healthy shine and protects it from styling tools. I've also thrown in the Benefit Beauty Cabana Glama kit ($36) to help give your skin a touch of sun and color.a Rafflecopter giveaway
