How is it already MARCH?! Does anyone else literally feel like this year is already flying by?? Sorry for the lack of posts lately… I just realized it’s been over a week since my last blog post and I hadn’t posted on Insta in FIVE days!! Taking a little Insta break was much needed and I actually left town for the first time since my shoulder surgery to drive up to Fort Worth to visit my family last weekend. It had been so long since I had visited that it was such a breath of fresh air to finally get out of the house for longer than a few hours. We got back late Saturday night just in time for me to start prepping for my first commercial job since the surgery and I can say that being scared and nervous was a major understatement. Thankfully, I have a killer assistant and crew that has really made the transition back to work such a breeze! I’m glad to be back, even if I can only move one arm!! 😜

Who thinks you can only wear little black dresses during the cooler weather? No way!! If you know me you know that I live in black, white and 100 shades of grey no matter what the weather.

{How to Easily Shop my Instagram Posts}

Have you ever been scrolling through Instagram, spot something that you just have to have and wonder, where can I get that?? In the past, we would have to read through comments or stalk someone’s blog until we found out where that item came from. This is beyond time consuming and half the time the item is already sold out. I feel like having to hunt down items is such a turn off when people are wanting to use influencers as a shopping tool. I wanted to create a quick guide for a few ways to easily shop my Instagram posts.

{The Mental Struggles of Major Surgery and How to Adjust}

It’s been a little over three weeks since my shoulder surgery and to be completely honest, I’ve been extremely discouraged. Countless amounts of people warned me that the recovery for shoulder surgery is long and painstakingly difficult but for some reason I didn’t think it would be this hard for me. I know its only been three weeks but I thought I would be making more progress than I actually am. Not only is the pain and immobility a major issue, no one tells you about the mental effects of a surgery like this. For me, that has been one of the hardest parts. I know this is something most people don’t have to go through but I wanted to write this in hopes that it might help someone else going through the same thing.

Who else agrees that 2016 was the year for Gucci?? They are KILLING the fashion industry right now. First, it was the who’s who of blogging sporting the new GG belts, then the new leather cross-bodies and now almost every single person I follow is sporting something Gucci whether it is a bag, belt, flats or all of the above. I wasn’t going to be that blogger that was going to succumb to being like everyone else, but I literally can’t stop obsessing over EVERYTHING Gucci right now. I literally want it all. If I was mega rich, I would totally have it all! But until then I will stick to my most coveted piece from the collection; the Gucci GG Marmont.
