Twice as nice

A while back I ran across an ad on my Facebook page for Twice. Twice is an online consignment boutique for women. Shop brand names at low prices. Items are like-new and gently worn. But the best thing about Twice is selling your clothes to them. We all have items in our closet that we don’t wear anymore. What sucks is that some of the things we’ve only worn a couple of times and the thought of just giving it away really stinks. Especially when you might have paid top dollar for it! Whatever the case – Twice wants your clothes and they will pay you for them! Request a free shipping bag (or shipping label), fill it up with your unwanted items, and they take care of the rest.

Since Jon and I are moving apartments soon, it was a good time to go through and purge my closet (and long overdue). I have a hard time getting rid of clothes sometimes, but I went with the philosophy “have I even worn this in the past year?” If the answer was no, into the Twice pile it went. In the end, I had a mountain of clothes to send.

Friday Faves

TGIF! Even though I have to work every weekend, I still really love Fridays. Especially Fridays that I have off – which lucky for me, has been a lot lately. :) Before I buckle down and get some work done, I wanted to share a few of my latest favorite things…

Morning walks with Harvey

photo 2With my job, my new part time gig, Jon’s new job, our biz, and our upcoming move, things have been quite busy in Pritzland. This has just drained me and I haven’t made it to the gym in what feels like forever. In a means to do something I’ve been taking long walks with Harvey in the morning. He loves (literally) chasing squirrels up the trees – although in this picture it looks like he’s trying to take a bite out of the tree!

Jo’s Coffee

Third time is a charm

Overall I have been completely happy with my experience with Stitch Fix. I think the stylist has done a good job at understanding my style and I’ve been happy with her selections. When the box of goodies came on Monday I could hardly get the box open fast enough!

I like to read the note I receive my stylist first so I opened the envelope before checking out the goods. When I read it, I was sad to learn that I was styled by someone else. I thought I had requested to stay with the same stylist, but maybe she’s no longer there or was on vacation – bummer!

Weekend Getaway

A couple of weeks ago, the hubs and I took a much-needed mini vacation to Port Aransas. Port Aransas is an island just off the coast of Texas across from Corpus Christi.

It’s a little tourist town with a lot of fishing, but not very commercialized. I think the only chain I saw on the entire island was Subway. The nearest Starbucks was 19 miles away in Corpus! Eeek!

While a good majority of the weekend was spent lounging around and acting goofy, we got some much needed beach time in each day.

Stitch Fix #2

Howdy and hello there! Since my third Fix is scheduled to arrive today, I figured I had better report the findings of my second Fix! My, my, life has been a whirlwind lately…

If you haven’t heard of Stitch Fix, they are the first fashion retailer to combine expert styling and a unique shopping experience. Simply fill out a profile and a stylist will handpick a selection of five items for you. Keep what you want and return the rest.

I received this Fix about three weeks ago, and as luck would have it, I was wearing a piece from my first Fix when it arrived.

I think the FedEx guy is starting to think I really like him because when I open the door to sign for the box, I always have a big smile on my face. I just can’t wait to see what goodies I’m going to get this time!
