CAPRI SUN Our Favorite Lunchbox Staple is Better than Ever

I find myself always falling victim to thinking I know exactly what the next stage of parenting will look and feel like, then I get completely surprised but how much I didn’t know or wasn’t prepared for.  In the transition to ‘mom of elementary schooler’ I was totally unprepared for packing lunches! I don’t have a 9-5 where I need to pack food for myself so my lunch packing game was definitely under par.  I quickly did what any mom would do and turned to a friend whose kids are a few years older than mine and tried to shorten my learning curve.

My girlfriend filled my virtual shopping cart with all the essentials to survive five days a week of lunch packing.  The right size lunch bag to fit a bento box and a drink, the right size coolers to let it still close and fit a drink.  When she grabbed a CAPRI SUN from her cupboard to show me that unlike juice boxes, it does fit; I was filled with all kinds of nostalgia.  I can’t remember a youth soccer game where we didn’t celebrate an under 6’s win with an orange slice and CAPRI SUN.

Where are my outfit repeaters of the world?  I am a self-diagnosed outfit repeater.  My shopping cycle consists of buying something, loving it hard and wanting to wear it all the time. Then just as quickly as I fell in love, I fall out of love and retire the piece towards the back half of my closet.  This cycle is tiring, frustrating, guilt filled and always leaves me disappointing. I was in desperate need of a shopping solution and love designer clothes, but I don’t have the budget for them.  I love the joy and excitement of having something new that I’m really excited to wear out that day.

And then, I found it. Rent The Runway Unlimited.

Authenticate Louis Vuitton- The 7 Most Common Mistakes People Make When Trying to Spot a Fake Louis Vuitton Online

September 4, 2017

Today I authenticated 3 Louis Vuitton Speedies for customers. All three of them were fake and my customers had no clue.  Rather than get an authenticate Louis Vuitton before they bid, they bought the bags (for hundreds of dollars each) and then luckily decided to reach out to me during their 48 hour return window.  7-most-common-mistakes-people-make-when-trying-to-spot-a-fake-louis-vuitton-online

While I was quickly able to determine their bags were without a doubt fake, the customers were shocked, angry, relieved – you name it. I can’t blame them though; How would you feel if you were holding a fake bag you just paid $500 for?

Blogger-The 5 Biggest Mistakes I’ve Made Since Starting My Blog

July 8, 2017

Generally you’ll find the pages of the internet filled with glowing success stories of how your fellow blogger found instant smashing success in their niche.  Honestly, until now, I haven’t been much of an exception.the-five-biggest-mistakes-since-starting-my-blog

The first case study I published was how I went from 67 – 9,873 website visitors in 24 hours using $11 of Facebook ad spend. Instead of talking about the struggles I wanted to share my successes.

I get it . . . we are often way more intrigued by whatever means might be our shortcut than really learning about all the times our colleagues have crashed and burned.  But with all the noise of social media I’m starting to see much greater lessons in learning from everyone’s mistakes than I am trying to copy my colleagues successes. If you want to learn from my blunders check out the top 5 mistakes I’ve made since starting my blog.

An Excerpt From Motherhood

An-Excerpt-From-Motherhood

I recognize that look.  The furrowed brow, the constrained eyes with pupils narrowing towards the center into a cold stare.  It’s not her wearing the expression that I am familiar with, but the expression itself.

It’s like the pair of patent leather pumps she loves to pull out of my closet step into and play mommy. Just like her favorite pair of my shoes she is familiar with trying on, so is this expression.

I recognize that it belongs to me.  My face knows how to, involuntarily, turn that exasperated and cold in seconds.  I look down and realize that my sweet child isn’t misbehaving but is instead just playing mommy using the accessory she’s so familiar seeing me wear, frustration.
