the scoop

This is my last post for the year! I am taking the rest of December to celebrate the holidays with my family and friends. I also have to get us packed and ready to head to Arizona for a few months. I have so much to do and am really excited. I’ve learned to prioritize this blog and put it away when I have more important things to do. So for now I’ll sign off and see you next year!

note

I may be posting outfit ideas on Like.to.Know.it here if I pull something really fun together that I think you might like. So check back here or get the app if you want to follow along. You can learn more about the app here. Once you sign up you can follow along on your desk top too. You don’t have to take screen shots to see new looks, that is the old technology. Now you just get the app or sign up, log in and find your favorite influences to follow and you are good to go. No need to like, comment or anything like that. I really find this is my favorite way to follow influencers.

my look

The is one of my favorite outfits for when I am having a quiet day at home. I love to be comfy and warm while the snow is flying outside. I got these lounge pants and thermal tee at Walmart and love them so much I got them in several colors. I got my lace bralette and Ugg slippers at Costco last year. If you watch Costco they may get these slippers in again this year. They also have Ugg dupes that are really nice.

end of year projects

I have a lot of little things I like to do to tidy up my life at the end of a year. One is to clean out my closet. I began that process this week. Anything I haven’t worn or used this year is neatly packed up and taken to the consignment store or Good Will. It feels so good to get rid of clutter and share things with others that might like them for a while. I am even getting rid of a bunch of handbags that I thought I would never let go. But they just sit in their covers in the closet so its time to find them a new home. I am loving all the extra space I am seeing.

Blogger Things We Do

THE OUTFIT

It's official! I'm bat a_ s crazy! You know how hard it is to get pictures of yourself leisurely working in your bedroom? I had to get up, set the timer on Mr Tripod and with 10 seconds dive-bomb onto the bed and look casual! Where is the white coat?!! All in the day of a life of a hobby blogger! P.S. that cup was empty.

When I took these photos I was laughing a lot. It was so ridiculously funny to think about the things I do as a blogger. I take my own photos. I use a cannon camera set on auto with a timer set for 10 seconds and it's set up on a tripod. So I have 10 seconds to get into position for pictures. I usually take about 15 to 20 pictures per outfit and about half of them turn out decent. Sometimes none of them can be used. I decided for this shoot I wanted to do a blogger thing I have seen. Me, casually working in my bedroom. Now there are lots of mornings that I do work in bed but I do not look like this and my bed is not made up. But I was trying to create an illusion here. It was fun and my sweet dog sat on the floor beside me watching the whole episode very curiously. He is used to his crazy mom so he just guarded me until I was done.  My outfit was an off the shoulder sweatshirt that I got last year with a comfy lace bralette, skinny white jeans and my bar necklace. At least I was dressed comfortably.

NEW PINTEREST GROUP BOARD

I wanted to share with you a new group board on my Pinterest! I love Pinterest as many of us do but it seems as in many things, it is more represented by the young and fabulous in the fashion and style genre. I am moving to make a change and created a group board titled Style Wise. Check it out here. It was just created and needs some more inspiration so if you are a fashion and style blogger and would like to be a contributor let me know via northwestmountainliving@gmail.com. I would love to have more Style Wise women help me show brands and society our value and relevance!

MOVE IT OR LOSE IT

On this past Saturday's edition of "Move It Or Lose It" segment, I talked about breaking up with exercise. It was a fun post and well received. Check it out if you haven't already!

OTHER REMINDERS

I didn't shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year, I wasn't seeing anything really new. I did find some amaing things at the Rack so I added links to my finds. An amazing white shirt with fringe tail, my favorite jeans both on sale as well as a camo jacket and a pale pink and cream shearling jacket also both deeply discouted to my Boutique and Chatter page here. So check it out and all the other noise on my blog. 

I've been bringing in new clients for blog designing and so enjoying the process. So if you are thinking about starting a blog and need a designer give me a holler! I've had many clients that already have blogs but want my phase two and three services. More detail are on my Services page here.

I think I am going to offer a free course on starting up your own blog so if you have interest let me know and I'll put you on my list for the first course. More details to come.

Thanks for stopping by!

Peace!
