1. Shop Updates

    Greetings! I come with The Bloggins Shop news and updates! First and foremost, I apologize for any inconvenience due to closing my shop for and extended amount of time after I got back from vacation. Even after opening it, I kind of put it on the back burner. But! That’s about to change.

    I’m in the process of restocking my shop and I wanted to announce that everyday (starting yesterday) I will be putting up a new item so don’t forget to check that out! The items pictured above are just some of the new items going up in the coming days

    Finally, I have updated my shop’s policies, including shipping and refund policies, as well as methods of payment. I now accept payment through PayPal, in addition to credit/debit and Etsy gift cards.

    I encourage everyone purchasing from anyone on Etsy (not just from me) to read the seller policies before any purchase!

  3. INSPOS W5

    Hey there! Inspos is back to get your creative juices flowing! This week I’ve been inspired to relaunch the Bloggins Shop since it was closed for so long while I was on vacation. That’s all thanks to the inspiring interviews with the curators of the  Dime Store Emporium and Three Potato Four

    Recently, I took a trip to Urban Outfitters to window shop and I left feeling inspired to make some of the things they had in their shop, from the merchandise to the displays. A couple of the DIY inspirations can be found here and here. I have also been inspired to make a mid-century modern style table, like this one, thanks to A Beautiful Mess (which is never not inspirational!)

    Finally, the work of Kinsey of Sincerely, Kinsey has always inspired me to travel and capture it all on camera, especially these “HWY 1” photos. Great stuff.

  4. The End of #100HappyDays

    I regret to inform you that I have failed in accomplishing the #100happydays challenge. This 4th of July weekend was a really busy one for me and I got all caught up in work that I forgot about it. Nonetheless, I still made it halfway! The challenge has taught me to look past my everyday routine for small moments of happiness and to actually live in that moment. The challenge itself is harder than it seems, and I encourage everyone who reads this to do it.  It doesn’t have to be shared on social media if you think something like this promotes banality or a faux-positive culture. You could keep track of it in a journal or on Post-Its, or whatever is easier for you. Just don’t bash other people for sharing their #100Happydays on Facebook or Instagram because that takes away from their experience. 

    Good luck and good night!
