tuesday, may 5: curveballs

Well life has definitely thrown me a few curveballs this year. The biggest of which has to do with my health. I’ve been dealing with a few icky health things since January, have been to my doctor, and had numerous tests run. We’re still working on getting a diagnosis, but in the meantime the name of the game is pain management. But that’s the thing about life, right? It will always throw you curveballs. Some will be bigger than others, some more life-changing than others, but if you wait until those curveballs stop to live your life, you’ll be waiting long after you are gone. That being said, I’m back! I know I’m not the most consistent blogger, but I’m going to try and put more effort into posting on this blog. Starting next week I’m going to be spilling my secrets and methods of clearing out my closet, refining my style, and falling back in love with fashion.

I arrived at the shop this morning, Starbucks red cup in hand, and threw my planner, breakfast, and keys down on the counter. Shortly after, I spent about 10 minutes trying to get the perfect Instagram shot of my “desk.” Let’s get real for a second, to get this casually styled shot I grab a small display table, clear the clothes off it, then very carefully place the one or two items you would actually find on my desk with multiple other items which scream “it’s the Holidays and I’m super creative.” What we do for the ‘gram, right? After all was said and done, I actually thought it would be more fun to show what a day in my life really looks like. While these pictures may still be pretty, they are more accurate at depicting what a typically day looks like for me. So here you go, a day in the life of a shop girl.

tuesday, july 8 : hello

Hello! My name is Kendra. I am a personal stylist, vegetarian, world traveller, and blogger (or at least I pretend to be). I also own Taim Boutique in Laguna Beach. It’s cute, you should totally stop in some time. I love converse, tea, reading, my cat, biscuits, Netflix, and singing in my car. I hope this blog inspires you to stop waiting for the weekend, for summer, for someone to fall in love with you, for life. Let’s make the most of the moment we’re in now. xx, Kendra
