Reconstruction

You'll notice the recent changes to my main blog... maybe. As I haven't been on this specific blog in quite some time (note the baby blog I have from the last 9 months of my pregnancy). I am choosing to dedicate this blog from here on out to my hobbies and other things I run into from day to day. There may be some family updates, but hopefully if I can stay true to this new blog, and keep my family updates for my other blog. Make sense?... it doesn't really to me... but that's mostly because it's almost midnight and I'm a mom of a newborn who has the weirdest sleeping schedule. Aka, I'm running on very little sleep.

ANYWAY! My main point. My hobbies you ask? What are they? My hobbies include DIY crafts, makeup, clothing, baking, cooking. I have to say, I'm not super refined in ANY of these areas. But I do love these things. I don't really think you have to be amazing at any hobby; just as long as it makes you happy, it's a hobby. I've used my facebook page for updates with things like this in the past, but I decided to blog it all instead because then I guess I feel I'm not annoyingly (is that a word?) updating my facebook every hour. Honestly, another reason why I love to blog: I forget a lot of things I love like outfits, desserts, makeup routines that I have discovered very easily. In a blog, I can actually look back and re-discover these things!

Now that I am four weeks post baby, I went on a shopping spree.. :S Yes, it was an awesome but terrible feeling at the same time. Spending money... well, sucks. But honestly, my wardrobe was getting slim. Not that I gained tons of weight or anything, because really I'm almost back done to my size. But, my wardrobe before baby consisted of tighter fitting shirts and stuff. Trying to get back into those clothes not only made me frustrated, but uncomfortable too. Another thing, if you know me, you know that I'm an avid pump, stiletto wearer. I love heels. Now that I have to carry 30 pounds of stuff (carseat, baby, and baby bag) everywhere I go, I'm gonna have to mostly rule out heels as my main source of shoes. Therefore, I bought flats, which I really did need. The style I went for when shopping would be described as Comfy chic. I love a great scarf and some cute earrings to finish an outfit. Winter is my most favorite season to dress for as well. Tights, scarves, boots, etc. Love it all! Anyway, in the next few weeks, I have a goal to take pics of some the outfits I was able to put together. Seriously with all the clothes I got, I feel like I have endless possibilities for outifts (that's a great accomplishment for a shopping spree).

Another goal: I really want to organize the back of my closet. This is my space for all my makeup and beauty products. I do my hair, makeup and nails in that space and I have organized it before. The last year sort of took a toll on that area though. So I took some pics today. I plan to get them on here as before pics.

Lastly, I am a new member on the site birchbox.com! It's a site that you join and pay $10 a month for to get a shipment of 4-5 beauty product samples once a month. They are random/popular products picked out. Mostly I've seen makeup and hair products, but there are other random products too. Like detergent for your pretties. LOL Anyway, I just joined, and I will hopefully get the first shipment this month! I plan on reviewing those products on here! I'm super excited about it because if you love beauty products, you know that you can really break the bank trying to find awesome products. This way, you pay a set amount and get 4-5 things you will probably really love!

So it's late.. I'm going to attempt to feed and put the baby down... and hopefully go to bed myself! Keep reading!
