Stitch “Fix” in the Month of May

Back in October, this past fall, I’d read a friend’s blog in which she recapped her very first Stitch Fix. She told a tale of filling out an online fashion profile with her style preferences, coming home to that little box on her doorstep, and excitedly trying on and modeling the hand-picked items from her packaged style “fix”. This, is my tale.

After reading my friend’s story I immediately signed up for Stitch Fix, a members-only, monthly fashion fix. After signing up it took approximately 6 months to receive that long-awaited invitation. Quite frankly, when I received the invitation in my inbox I was on my knees thanking the fashion gods, it was a miracle! I was at work when I received the invite and had to take an immediate break just to fill out my fashion preferences online, including sizes and colors. I’ve never filled out a profile on Match, but I assume the processes are similar: I’m looking for my fashion soul mate my friends.

Birchbox Review for May

My apologies up front, I realize I am a couple of years behind in this, but I’d quite honestly never even heard the term Birchbox until a mutual friend of Annie and I’s, Miss E, spilled the beans. I’d noticed E’s nails one evening, during a bowling excursion, and she had the most gorgeous, vintagey-floral nail appliques applied. I immediately needed to know who, what, and how, and that is when the beans were spilled. Birchbox.


For those, like me, that simply do not know, Birchbox is a monthly beauty sample box. You pay $10 a month and receive an assortment of beauty and lifestyle goodies.

Quick facts about me:

  1. I love sample size anything
  2. I live for surprises
  3. I’m all about keeping USPS going Continue reading

Have a gracious week.

Crystal and I wanted to dedicate today’s post to thanking all those who have served our country. Our freedom is an incredible gift we, as Americans, are given and it’s because of those who have risked their lives for our freedom and their families who work hard stateside that we are able to live our lives the way we choose. A million thank yous to you all and a very happy Memorial Day!

Remember to join the nation and take a moment of silence at 3:00 pm tomorrow to remember those who served.
