Um, working out became a bit more $$ than I anticipated. Having a good sports bra, running shoes, and some cute workout gear….that stuff adds up! I wish I had a solid workout routine to share with you, but instead I’m just going to talk about my gym basics (minus my protein bars.)
You guys know that I love watches, especially ones with a unique touch. My clothes are pretty much low key (only 1% of my outfits make it on Instagram, seriously,) and it’s thanks to neat accessories like my Cora style watch from Jord Wood Watches that add some magic to my wardrobe. I’m not the one to go for a dainty watch and I love it when women’s watches looks a bit more technical. What drew me to this particular watch is that a) the colour of the wood and b) it’s mechanical. Isn’t engineering awesome?!

If only the swish of a wand and chant of a spell can unlock more than doors. For me, it’s a mixture of confidence, opportunity, and persistence to unlock my door for more creative chances. I recently partnered with Macy’s and I’ve been excited to shoot and style some pieces that are perfect for the spring wardrobe. And for once, I broke out of my comfort zone, just a lil’ bit.
Lately, I’ve been into denim shirts and fiction novels. How come I haven’t looked into these things sooner? I used to be an avid book reader, plowing through 50+ books a year; this year so far I’ve read three books and I’m going to challenge myself to read 10 by the end of 2016! Did I ever mention I used to write fanfiction (you’ll never find my pen name) – but I hope through reading and blogging I’ll be inspired to finish my stories that I created literally ten years ago.
This is the year of trying new things and learning new things. It includes shifting my wardrobe…like wearing denim on denim!
Lately, I’ve been one uncontent woman. I thought increasing my time at the gym or sitting in a coffee shop would ease my concerns, but today the smallest thing set me off. Luckily when I go into this mode, I do some massive room cleaning and the mom was happy. Another thing that’s makes me feel better is numbers. Whether it’s adding up my expenses of the year, going through my spending tracker, or living through the 80-20 rule: 80% of your output comes from 20% of your input. More than 20% of my time goes into my blog, but am I getting the output I want?
Forget about all that; I’m here to talk about a different numbers- the 6040. No it’s not some number for the meaning of life, but it certainly has been adding some flair to my life. 6040 is one of the watch collections at Original Grain and boy do they make the most beautiful handcrafted wood and steel watches.
