I failed. It’s been 2 months since my last post…I was all hot and heavy on the blog at first, then I fizzled away. I find that I tend to do that often. I signed up for a personal trainer at the beginning of the year, all excited to get skinny and look awesome. What happened? Oh, life happened. And now that it’s June, I’m tired. And I’m hungry. And I just don’t want to go. So, I quit. Well, I tried to quit. Thankfully I have a hunk at home who won’t let me quit…something about not wasting money and all that. Details, details. When I was little, I quit almost every sport I ever tried with the exception of volleyball. I just never finished things I started…I can say I am a religious book finisher. I HATE starting a book and not reading all the way to the end. I guess I’ve got that going for me…My point to this rant is that I’m going to challenge myself to come back and do this. I’m going to make a solid effort to post more often. Even if no one’s reading, at least I’ll be forcing myself to see something through. I’m going to chalk that up as a win.
Now to the main point of the post – yeah, I haven’t even made it there yet. I heard about this cool website from a friend at work, Stitch Fix. I signed up last night…it sounds pretty awesome actually. Basically you fill out a style profile, provide your sizes/measurements/etc. and a personal stylist will hand-select items for you based on your likes/needs. You can set a budget for the items you order, you can request to receive more accessories than clothes (or vice-versa) AND you only have to pay for the items you want to keep. They send you all these great fashion items, and you have 3 days to try on/feel them out. If you hate them, you can return them. If you love them, they’ll charge you for what you keep. It sounds too good to be true. I set my profile to send me a “fix” every 2-3 weeks. I’m a huge sucker for brown boxes on my doorstep when I get home from work. Almost NOTHING makes me happier. This should be a real treat. I’ll keep y’all posted.
