A few months ago I started a new venture of opening up an online boutique. While it was fun, and somewhat profitable, the demands of having this boutique were more than I expected. In addition to blogging, photography and being a full-time mom the time it required was not something I could keep up with. What was I thinking! ? It was an experience, in the short amount of time I met some wonderful people, gained some amazing repeat customers and had fun. But with that said – I won’t be restocking and closing the boutique once all my inventory is gone.
One thing that having the boutique made me realize was that I wasn’t making much ‘me’ time. I have posted about this before here, how I think it’s important for a mama to make time for herself, whether that is something as simple as getting up in the morning before the kids wake up to shower and put on makeup or style her hair or making some time to go out and buy those new shoes she’s been wanting – it’s so extremely important for a mother’s well-being.
After I started getting in the inventory for the boutique I realized I was having way too much fun getting all these new clothes in. I kept one of almost everything I had ordered! But for good reason! I had purchased almost nothing new for me since before the baby, and before that I was still mostly living in my maternity clothes from my second. Sad but true because I hadn’t been pregnant for two years! Anyhoo, it made me realize how little I was doing for myself.
So this all is getting me to my next update for the blog and one that I am particularly excited about. 😀 I decided to add a new blog category here called – What We Wear – where I will share with you some of favorite outfits and beauty products that I am currently loving. Because being a mother doesn’t always have to be just about the kids, there should be a little time for mama too. 😉 This tunic is probably my most favorite. There are so many ways to rock this! ? And I still have a few left in inventory over@morningviewboutique. ?? so if you like it you can snag one up before they’re all sold out.
So check out the new page over on the sidebar now, it will be updated with looks I post over on Instagram so if you’re not following us there you should. 😉
You can also see the new What We Wear page HERE.
I hope you like it!
