Destruction, Construction, and Conniptions : An Update!

Pink Construction Cones

HELLO HELLO HELLO, loves!

Honestly, the reason for the absence is logistics. Literally *nothing* happened for about a month or so while we waited on insurance to get their shit together and approve the big old check needed to rebuild our house. After about a million hours of Jon’s hard work on the phone with the orchestra of involved parties we finally made it work. This being said, we’re now 4 months post disaster and just getting started.. but still! Progress!

Here’s the update into what’s brewing at #MaisonMonCoeur:

I Went to SpiceWorld and I Never Wanted to Leave

Seeing as I’m only now waking up from a pretty long internet hiatus, I haven’t had the chance to share with most of you something pretty earth shattering that happened this summer :

I saw the Spice Girls. In London. Up close and PERSONAL.

Ever since I saw the movie when I was six – faux double decker bus of dreams flying across Tower Bridge, it’s been a dream of mine to see my personal heroes in the big smoke. Truly, I thought it would never happen. And then they got social media. And then there was talk of a tour.. perhaps.

Is that a long way of saying “sorry the last post was about cancer, here’s a handbag review”? Kind of. But as an OG fan of Rebecca Minkoff, I couldn’t be more thrilled to share the new addition to my collection with you – meet Edie.

IMG_7516

Readers, I’ll be honest.

I’m a shit blogger.

Not because I don’t have things to say, or the ability to communicate them.. no, far worse.

Perfection paralysis.

Here’s a few of the things I’ll be doing around here to get out of my own way and into the the mildly-popular-micro-influencers-in-my-very-niche-corner-of-the-internet hall of fame, and why they might be good practices for all sufferers of PP – whether you have a blog or not.

Becoming an Entrepreneur : The good, scary, and exciting!

IMG_0001

Entrepreneur is never a word I truly associated with myself. Founder? Maybe. Creator? Sure. Freelancer? Definitely. But entrepreneur has always just reeked of desperation, though I couldn’t quite tell you why. Maybe it’s a bit of an antiquated word that I’ve always associated with someone who’s always trying and never doing – but to that line of thinking, I extend my biggest and kindest “fuck off” as I enter this new stage of my career. 💕
