things occupying my brain

Has anyone else visited Old Navy lately? They have been stepping it up in terms of quality and trend-worthy pieces for fall. I scooped up this fun printed tunnic last week and couldn't wait to wear it! Even better, with a promotion they had going on, it was under $25.
 
I am struggling to keep up...the blogging world has grown so much that I feel like I am always trying to keep up with posts. Does anyone else know how to combat this? Maybe I need to shift and "re-focus" because at this pace I am never going to feel like I am with it.
 
I meant to post this a few weeks ago, but totally forgot. I had a bunch of you ask me where I get Caroline's bows from and I wanted to make sure I let you in on the goods...Her shop is Who Made That Bow on Etsy and she is wonderful! At $1 a bow, you can't go wrong (or have too many).
I was lucky to receive an advance copy of a book that is about to go to mass production and I cannot put it down. It's called Friendkeeping: A Field Guide to the People You Love, Hate, and Can't Live Without by Julie Klam and it is AWESOME! Friendships are such important relationships, but sometimes (and yes I am guilty of this), they get pushed to the back burner or we lose touch. This has been extremely helpful for me in wanting to maintain and strengthen those relationships. Youc an get more information about the book here.
 
I've got some really exciting giveaways coming up friends, the first starting Thursday... stay tuned over the next few weeks for all sorts of fun items you can get your hands on...and just the perfect time for the holidays fast approaching, too!
 
Happy Tuesday

  2. I've noticed Old Navy has been stepping up their game too! I really love that tunic. Last year they had out a gorgeous ruffle coat. Sigh... I should have bought it.

  3. I completely agree with you about Old Navy! I ordinarily never shop there, but I have seen so many cute items on blog recently that were purchased at Old Navy and I just had to check them out. I bought so many great items for the fall!!

  4. I've been staying away from ON so I don't buy everything I see! The only saving grace is that it's inexpensive enough to justify ;) Target is also stepping up their game - I just got a super cute blazer there!!

    Thanks for the book recommendation. I am so guilty of this, too, especially with a new baby! I am going to check it out!!

  9. I went slightly nuts in Old Navy last week - I bought more than my fair share of their dresses (stripes! I couldn't help it!) and of course I love their yoga pants. Their latest jewelry line is super cute too!

  10. I haven't been to Old Navy since I was pregnant! I might need to check it back out.

    I've been making headbands and dabbling in bows. They are harder to master. ;)

  15. THANK YOU for posting about the bows! I've wondered for a while where you found them, I've got a 2 month old and I've not had the best luck finding this style of bows on Etsy. I think this made my day!
