Summer is officially here 🌞Spent my day working a bit, thrifting a little more, and now I'm firmly planted on the couch for the rest of the night. 💆🏻 #survivingour20s
Today may have ended in what looked like tropical storms but overall it wasn't bad. ⚡️Met with my first client today at my new job. ⚡️Worked for a total of an hour and a half. ⚡️Caught a new bus home and noticed a hidden thrift store I've never visited. ⚡️Thrifted at my fave store where I snagged a Madewell, Express and Ann Taylor Blouse for $10. ⚡️& I managed to prep my first meal for tomorrow in my new bento boxes.
Late last year I decided I wanted to consume less, in the sense that I wanted to repurpose as much as possible, while also avoid buying anything new. . 💭At first my only idea was to thrift and continue recycling, but lately I've found there's very few things you can't find for free or very cheap. . 📓Today I managed to get a ton of office and art therapy supplies from a girl in the city, and I'm currently waiting to hear back if some vintage international Coke cans are available. (Those are for an art project.) . 💸The point is it feels really nice to not spend all my money on stuff that's mass produced, marked up in price, and usually ends up getting tossed after a while. I haven't blogged in forever because I'm lazy to be honest, but once I get off my butt this is something I hope to motivate more people to try. . ♻️Also, if you guys ever have questions on how to make the most out of thrifting, find free stuff in your area or product less waste, I'd be happy to talk your ear off. #survivingour20s
Tomorrow is the first day of my new job, but today was spent listing a bunch of denim in my @Poshmark closet 👖Not sure how I'm gonna balance a 9-5 with my new side job, but I do know how I'll spending all my new income 🙌🏼 #survivingour20s
It's been months (years?) since I posted a photo to INSTAgram instantly, but this ice cream was too good to not share 🍦🙌🏼 The rain in DC has finally stopped, but we're not letting that stop us from still spending the whole weekend on the couch. #survivingour20s
You ever have one of those days where you get everything done on your to do list, then some? ✔️Today I shipped all my packages, photographed dozens of things, listed a ton on @Poshmark, and managed to clean my apartment. 🍕Treating myself to a pizza party of one tonight, because I can say with 100% certainty that I've earned it #survivigour20s
Interrupting your Mothers Day newsfeed to remind everyone that today is Max's 4th birthday. So far no cards have arrived, but we get it, the postal system is a little slow sometimes. 🐾 Here's my yearly roundup of my favorite Max photos, because I wouldn't be me if I didn't celebrate this 15 pound ball of fur. . ▪️📷 1: just your average Tuesday with your mom taking glamour shots . ▪️2: Max a few weeks after he came home, very bored by my grad homework . ▪️3: Valentines Day 2016, the year of the two heart pizzas. . ▪️4: finally being leash trained, sort of, not really though. . ▪️5: Christmas, aka there's an extra thing in the apartment to cover in fur. . ▪️6: The day he insisted on sleeping like a human, burrito blanket and everything. . ▪️7: One of his least flattering Halloween costumes, the lobster. It was on clearance, okay! . ▪️8: The day I realized my cat was in the top 1% of cute cats, don't fight me on this. . ▪️9: The day Max realized he had a little brother.
Seriously regretting not taking advantage of the low prices on succulents in Texas 🌱 Instead I'm trying to keep my own collection from drying out and drowning the few healthy ones with water 💦 . On my to do list is to learn how to make my own pots, it can't be *that* hard, right? #survivingour20s
Today was spent steaming, photographing and researching the items I purchased yesterday. . ✖️When I started selling in @poshmark it was just to prove I could do it, now I do it because it's a)fun and b)helped me pay my bills while I worked towards my counseling license. . 📓Gonna start sharing more of my thrifting experiences on Instagram, from my favorite thrift finds to the strategies that are helping me grow my Posh closet. #survivingour20s
In the last 7 days I've flown from TX>DC, gone to three job interviews, received my license to practice, and finally accepted my first job as a therapist! When I moved to DC I had no job, one month of rent to my bank account and the belief that I would figure it out. It was stressful to be in the same situation three years later but like always everything worked out in the best way imaginable. #survivingour20s
If you don't take a window photo, did you even travel? ✈️ Excited to be home for the first time in weeks, especially because I'm returning with a ton of new inventory and as licensed counselor! #survivingour20s
Small update: my interview last night was one of the most awkward things I've ever done. Imagine being interview for a job based on a voicemail you left, because that's what I literally did! 🤦🏻♀️ Also, checked in super late to my flight so fully expecting to get a middle seat at the back of the plane. Less than 24 hours before I'm home again, miss my boys, feline and human 🐾🙇🏻
*Rant post to start your Monday with* . 👀 Lately I've noticed how much bullying there is online. Rude ass remarks on Instagram and bitchy behaviors in several Facebook groups I'm in. Not just from strangers either, real friends of mine are masking their snarky remarks as jokes or sarcasm. . 🤚🏼Jokes stop being a joke when it becomes a pattern of behavior. As someone with plenty of not kind opinions, I can't understand why people thinks it's acceptable to publicly judge others, as if others choices affect them in any way. . 🗯 As a therapist I wonder who hurt you? Regular me would like to tell them to take several seats and shut the hell up. Social media doesn't have to be puppies and sunshine, but it also shouldn't turn into a place where everyone freely passes judgement.
Celebrated #earthday by sorting through my thrift finds of the past week and frantically searching for this ladybug after we thought we smashed it 🐞. #survivingour20s
