I can’t get enough of Colette Bream.  I discovered her etsy shop over a year ago, but I can’t help but keep coming back to see what new items she’s listed.  Her shop is filled with the most wonderful, imaginative  products for your little ones.  And ohhhh the pillows!….this one has our name written all over it.

The 52 Project – a portrait of my daughter, once a week, every week, in 2013

I feel like life is making a lot more sense to me lately.  Like I am finally finding my rhythm.  I don’t know what’s changed over the last few months, but I have renewed inspiration and appreciation for life.  There was a long period of time where I felt stuck….underwater, with little hope of reaching the surface.  I was so focused on my seemingly never ending to-do list that I failed to enjoy the everyday.  I didn’t allow myself to press pause, and breathe in the beauty of my life.  But lately, I’ve felt that changing.  I think, in part, it’s due to my 2012 reflections and realizing how much I want to do differently this year.  Being more present in the time I share with my daughter, my husband….my friends.  Focusing on what I really want to do with my business and whole-heartedly persueing it.  Not just saying things….but really doing them. Eliminating distractions, learning to say no, and chasing after the things that light up my soul.

While I love to share bits and pieces of my life, style and inspiration here on this blog….forgive me if it’s a bit more quiet around here than usual over the next few months.  I promise, it’s not because I’m not doing anything.  In fact, it’s probably because I am doing a lot more of what I set out to do all along.  (If that makes any sense at all!)  I’ll still be here, posting when I can and when I’m inspired….but I just thought that these changes that are stirring in my heart needed some addressing….because I know they will affecting the content (or lack of content) on this blog.  Thanks to all of you who keep up with me here….who encourage me and inspire me through your kind words!   You really are the best.

And don’t think I am going anywhere too quickly….because tomorrow I am hosting a giveaway. haha.  So hurry back, won’t you?

A new year, some new frames!

I must admit, I have a hard time with glasses.  I have a pretty small head, so finding glasses that actually fit often comes as a challenge.  And usually the styles I like, and fit my budget, are those that I find online and not in-store to try on….making it even tougher!   That’s why I love Bonlook’s new virtual stylist consultation service.  It takes some of the guesswork out of your online shopping.   Basically, you are guided through a short questionare regarding your style and face shape, and Bonlook’s stylists will create a customized video just for you, with suggestions on what frames would work best for you.  How great is that!?

I went through this process myself and HERE is the video they put together for me.  

Help me decide which ones to get by voting for your favorite! I am thinking the last one!? What do you think?!

Bonlook is also offering 50% off your second frame if you use the code “KELLI50” at checkout!
