The War on Weight

Last night my husband mentioned to me that we received the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. A few years ago, this would have bothered me. I would have been upset that he announced it to me, as well as that he felt the need to even look at it. Most of you probably realize, as a subscriber to Sports Illustrated, the Swimsuit Edition is automatically included. We don’t pay extra for it. We don’t go out of our way to make sure we receive it. And if I just happened to throw it away, he wouldn’t miss it.

More Reviews Coming Soon!

DSC02634Hello there! I’m working on getting some more reviews up, hopefully by the end of the week! I just received a new Target Beauty Box so of course I’m working on trying out all of the products 🙂 It looks like they’re starting to put this box out on a more regular basis, which is awesome! I’ve found that it is by far the most useful out of all the boxes I have tried. Of course that’s because I’m not crazy into makeup.

Infertility and Creativity

I mention on my About page that my husband and I are living child free, not by choice. This is something that he and I have been going through together for 4 years now. This month marks the 4th year since we began trying to start a family. Almost immediately we both began to worry that something was wrong. I felt so defeated every time my period would arrive. I had been so hopeful that I was going to be pregnant, because my period was always late. Turns out, I was having anovulatory cycles. This, as well as many other issues, all add together to mean we can’t have kids.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Streamlining on Etsy

Lately I’ve been more focused on my leather earrings and painting than anything else in my Etsy shops. I still enjoy cross stitch and am planning on working more of those into my Crafts shop, as well as more Get Naked and Free Beer signs. But as for the rest of it, I’m slowly weeding out all the other crafts that I was selling. Not to say that I won’t enjoy doing those on occasion for fun, or as a custom requested order, but they won’t be my main focus.
