A Little Of This and That Post!

 I have a little bit of this and that to share with you all today!

In my last post I shared that we were starting to decorate our guest room. That is still in process. The bedding came and it is perfect.

 I decided to not use the large lumbar pillow and maybe get a monogrammed pillow made up that is a bit more distinct in contrast since the room is turning out to be crisp looking. 

Right now I have a wrinkled duvet cover that needs ironing after I washed it and a navy velvet pillow in there.

I am waiting until our temperatures drop around here. Would you believe it has been predicted to get up to 115 degrees. Apparently right now at 3:00 it is 109 . We get hot in Northern California during the summer but this one is beating records.

Once it gets a bit cooler I will be adding my Fall decor to the great room, the pillows have all arrived and I love them even more than I thought I would. 

Since I am using my summer pillows in the guest room now I will need to order a couple more 24in. pillow inserts.

Helpful hint: When getting a pillow cover made in a 22 in size, use a 24 in. insert. You will get a fuller looking pillow if you make the insert 2 in. larger than the actual cover!!

I have been purging and working on my Fall wardrobe. I received two of the accessories I ordered...

It is even better in person than in the images, more vibrant and it is working perfectly with my wardrobe.

This turned out to be better in person! I adore this bracelet and it is one of my favorite pieces!!

Now for the reason I am purging and planning my wardrobe so strategically......

......I have been working on getting healthier and losing some weight so in the process I have dropped 2 sizes so absolutely nothing I own fits me. 

It has been a good thing, but also a hard thing to plan a new wardrobe that will work for me as I continue to lose a bit more. Luckily there have been some fabulous sales going on and that has helped tremendously.

Don't worry this blog won't become a journal of my weight loss however I will share how I am planning my new wardrobe in the future. You all have commented or emailed me that you like my wardrobe post, so I will continue those post.

It is hard to plan a wardrobe when I am in between sizes and seasons, let me tell you. If I only had a crystal ball to see how it is all going to turn out.

Something new for me that I am trying, is selling some of my clothing pieces on a resale site. I have never done this before and it is truly all new to me.

I have decided to list my clothing on poshmark and here is the link if any of you are interested in  seeing what I have listed...... click HERE! 

You can also go to my pinterest board HERE!

If any of you have ever used a resale site and have liked the process please email me or leave a comment. I would love to know what has worked well for any of you out there!! 

That is about it for news around here so I will leave you with good wishes for a very Happy and Safe Labor day weekend!!
