Trying Out Stitch Fix

So, my sisters gave me a gift card to Stitch Fix for my birthday and I was pretty excited about it. I hate shopping mostly because I hate trying things on, so this seemed perfect. Stitch Fix evaluates your style and then sends you a box of clothes as often as you’d like to buy or send back. You pay a $20 styling fee and that will go towards anything you buy, but if you don’t buy anything you lose that $20 which stinks.

I got my first box over a month ago and was beyond excited only to be completely let down. I hated everything except for the sandals they sent me, which were just generic any girl would probably like them. The box seemed like it was picked out for a 40 year old mom with two kids. I questioned why I even bothered to fill out the style profile.

But I gave them another shot because getting packages excites me and I still had gift card money. The second box came and…I hated it. Same kind of style was sent to me again even though I sent specific feedback saying I wanted edgy styles and the clothes they sent me didn’t flatter me at all in both boxes. I did keep a pair of jeans which fit me beautifully, were a little pricey, but worth it because they’re my new favorite pair.

If I didn’t have money left on my gift card, I would have been out at this point. Why bother telling someone what you like if they aren’t going to bother to read it? They even have access to your Pinterest and Instagram. What does the $20 styling fee go towards if you aren’t actually tailoring the style to me?

I just got my third box and swear I fell in love with my stylist. They FINALLY listened to me and I liked every piece! You get 25% off if you buy all 5 pieces, but I only bought the 3/5 that I loved.

Overall, I think for $20 it’s fun to see what they will send you. If you want to check it out you can use my referral code here: https://www.stitchfix.com/referral/12689660?sod=w&som=c&str=17299.

I’m going to keep getting boxes because they really hit the nail on the head this time around, but if I get another total bummer then I will probably cancel. The clothes I got were worth signing up, for sure. Stay tuned 🙂 Let me know if you’re thinking of trying/have tried Stitch Fix!

As if I haven’t talked about my trip to Iceland enough, I wanted to focus on a different aspect of the trip. We booked our vacation to Iceland through Groupon and the deal was incredible. Everything went so smoothly and the price was fanastic, I was really happy with the whole process because I don’t have a lot of experience booking trips. I really wonder what I would’ve done without Groupon for this trip.

10 Reasons Why Christmas Is Annoying

1.The Christmas freaks

Do not play Christmas songs in October and hang your lights up in November when the holiday is in December!!

2. Snow

And cold weather. THE WORST.

3. Too much food.

Like Christmas time is just a month of getting fat. At least on Thanksgiving it’s only for a day.

4. Greed

Basically we all demand presents for no reason.

5. Shopping

I hate shopping in general. There are so many people at the malls and it’s so stressful.

6. The exclusivity

It’s like the only holiday that matters apparently…

7. The music

Idk there are only like 3 Christmas songs I can name that don’t suck.

8. Too much family time

Spending time with family is nice…for a little while…

9. Taking down the decorations

They’re everywhere!! And then you have to take the lights down in the cold and snow!! ugh.

10. When it’s over

All the holly jolly goes away and we all go back to being mean to each other because we’re not in the “Christmas spirit” anymore.

10 Productive Things To Do Alone

I sometimes find my weekends completely empty. No plans, no friends to call, and very little errands to run. During this time off I like to take a couple mental health days. There’s nothing wrong with spending a weekend alone and choosing to not pack that weekend with tons of plans. Here’s a couple of things you can do alone when you find yourself with solitary free time:

1. Take a bath

Set aside a good amount of time to just soak and forget about all your other problems.

2. Go to the library

Sign up for a library card and get started on the reading list you pinned on Pinterest two years ago.

3. Binge watch a series

Escape your own reality with a non stop marathon of Netflix.

4. Go to the gym

Push yourself harder than you usually do and spend some time sweating it out in the sauna.

5. Learn a new skill

I personally learned how to crochet, I’ve made like 6 infinity scarves because that’s all I know how to do – but it’s really easy!

6. Go on a hike

Somewhere safe you can go alone, obviously. The scenery is guaranteed to make your day.

7. Run errands

Get done allllll of the things you’ve been putting off.

8. Clean!

I guarantee there is one spot in your house or one drawer in your room that needs reorganizing.

9. Get your nails done

Or do what you do to pamper yourself.

10. Shop!

Spend a little money and splurge. You’re not spending $16 on two cranberry vodkas at the bar with your friends so go buy yourself a new top or necklace.
