If I’ve learned anything this last week, it’s that you should never take anything for granted. You should seize every (and I mean every) opportunity that comes your way. Look beyond the obstacles and do something new.
I’m starting my own new adventure, branching out into the unknown this summer, which is why you’ve all seen my blog starting to bloom a little more than usual. With this extra time, I’m working on me, my blog, and exploring things and places I wouldn’t have otherwise. And it scares me. Why? because starting something new and looking into the unknown is terrifying. There’s a million reasons for me to run back to something I know well, but I want to see where this open window takes me.
Which is why I’m imploring you all to do the same:
Find your own adventure.
My friend Rosemarie, who sells Stella & Dot, has offered to help me help you all start your own explorations this summer with a bracelet adventure giveaway. It’s a little reminder that new opportunities await you behind every hiccup, every bump in the road, and every failed attempt.
I’m giving away two Stella & Dot “Adventure Awaits” arrow bracelets. Just enter below in the Rafflecopter entry using your Facebook log-in or email address, comment on this post about what you’re doing new this summer, and share the post. The more you share this post, the more chances you have to win!
“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great.”

I’ve been feeling a little down about my closet lately. Yes, yes. I have plenty to pick from. But as each season changes, items lose their luster. I no longer want to wear the corduroy green pants I coveted so much last fall, and the summer tops are no longer the color I want to wear. (Mint, I’m sorry, we’re parting ways for a bit.)
So when I stumbled upon this giveaway from Michael Stars, I had to enter. $2,500 in clothing. Ummm, yeah, count me in. It’s luxury lounge, or at least that’s what I take from the style. There’s a lot of neutrals, but honestly, if you saw my closet, you’d see the color coordinated rainbow I’ve created has a very large grey-black section. And come fall, I’m pretty sure I’ll be more apt to wear leggings with long sweaters.
