How do you work from home?

^^^ I think it's safe to say we need a bigger place....^^^

I gotta tell ya, last night's Stitch Fix training got me all kinds of excited for this new journey of mine. It just feels like I get to shop all day long without having to spend a dime! Except, of course, just like at the boutique, I will be highly tempted to purchase it all for myself. Ahh, the pains of being in the fashion world. ;) #jaykay

I should note, however, that I think I'll need to work on mastering this whole "work at home" concept. I wish there was a way for my computer to block me from ALL social media sites when it was time to do work. In fact, just before starting this blog post, I somehow wandered over to Facebook and got lost in all of the stalking for like half an hour. I need parental controls for mySELF! For all of you "work from home" people, how do you manage your time and make sure you focus on the task at hand without wandering to other social media distractions?

Okay, I'm back. I just got caught up in a conversation on G-Chat. Do you see what I mean?! DISTRACTIONS!

Okay, clearly it's time I stop blogging so I can get to work!

I am going to leave you with this fabulous and generous giveaway by my friend, Justina!


Justina blogs over at The Personal Geographic and is one of the most adventurous/active/travel-loving girls I know. She lives in British Columbia and posts some of the most beautiful pictures from her active life. Just looking at them gives me that travel itch (or should I say even more of a travel itch). 

Today, to go along with the travel-lovin' theme of things, Justina is giving one of you beautiful people a ONE YEAR subscription to National Geographic: Travel Magazine and this super cute Compass Necklace from Etsy!


Hope you can leave some blog love for Justina, today! :)

Enter below and have yourselves a fabulous weekend!

3 exciting things on my mind today

1. In just 3 hours, I will be attending my Stitch Fix training downtown! I believe it's me + 23 other stylists and we were told to bring our laptops and a charger so we can all learn how to use the platform together. My only problem? I don't have a laptop bag. :/ I've always just used my big ol' black backpack when going traveling with my laptop. But I can't be the new girl who brings her laptop in a BACKPACK!!!!! How "un-stylish" of me that would be. I can't have them questioning their decision to hire me! But I also didn't want to go out and buy a new $75 laptop bag to fit my monstrous 17" laptop when chances are I'd mostly be working from home, anyway. SO - I got creative (and when I say "I", I really mean Verner) and found a blue vertical-ish tote purse thing I had in the closet and it fits the laptop pretty perfectly (thanks, Boo). And that will have to do. Wish me luck.

2. Tomorrow my brother, (7 month pregnant)sister-in-law, and niece are coming to San Francisco to see me and Verner for the weekend! I'm super excited because we have this glorious food tour planned, where basically we will just eat our way through the city, getting an entree or two at each place and sharing it all. Now we'll get to try all of these amazing places in one day without breaking the bank!

My stretchy pants and tennis shoes are ready.

I should also note that I am excited to see my little niece again, but I am willing to bet that SHE is more excited to see VERNER than me.

Allow me to elaborate.

This is Melody when she's around Verner:

Case in point.

3. Today, The Dizzle and I deliberately got dressed and deliberately walked to Union Street so that we could deliberately go to a jewelry store we found. We then spent the next hour trying on rings. He even tried on men's wedding bands.

Did you hear that??? We were trying on RINGS! Like REAL. LIVE. RINGS.

I must have been in a state of shock, because I was surprisingly very calm during the experience. But now that I look back and see what just went down, I really want to just scream and dance around like a loony bin. 

;aknweoin;o2jalkjsdfijweoioi1!?11!??!:Owoi3w3HITFT3;OINAEWF;!!! <-----My excitement.

Deep breath, Michelle. :)

Hope ya'll have a fab Thursday!
