Wednesday Ramblings…

To say I’ve been in a funk lately would be a HUGE understatement.  I don’t really know what’s wrong with me, but I’ve been so uninspired lately in every aspect of my life it seems.

I can’t make up my mind of any home decor items…and if I find something I love, I typically talk myself out of it.  I’ve purchased numerous items to hang on our walls, but have yet to actually hang one of them.  I don’t know what my issue is lately.  Does this happen to anyone else?

I guess my uninspiration (I just made up a word…ya know…like Trump does) has ebbed and flowed over to the blog lately, and I’m sure most of you can tell by my lack of posts!  I don’t want this blog to become one of those subscription box only blogs, but I love doing those posts for you…and I also love doing the savings posts for you also, but it just seems to have gotten a little monotonous. I’ve even been feeling this way with my hair, my makeup and everything. I don’t know – I’ll snap out of this soon I hope! 

I feel like a failure with this blog honestly!  I went into this all gung-ho (is that how it’s spelled or said?  Idk!) but seemed to have burned myself out too quickly!  Not good for a blog that hasn’t even celebrated it’s one year mark yet!  But, I’ll get there – I’m still learning a lot and am overwhelmed by the whole process!  Please stick with me – believe me, this isn’t a pity party Melissa party post today – I just wanted to explain  for my lack of posts lately!

I thought vacation would help – my husband and I were away last week in Destin, Florida for our first wedding anniversary and our time there was absolutely amazing, but my creativity level is still on the blah level right now! 

Do you all have any tips for boosting creativity?  I mean, sure – there’s Pinterest…but that always makes me feel inadequate lol! 
What all kinds of posts would you all like to see in the future?  I am open to hearing from you all and taking your constructive criticism also – so just tweet me, private message me on FB, or send me a comment below and let me know!

In the meantime…I’ll spoil you with a few beautiful beach pictures from our trip…
and Maggie’s first time at the beach!

    Love the beach pics, Melissa! Creativity lulls are so frustrating. Pinterest makes them worse for me because I feel like I drown in images created by people who clearly do not share my creative block! I go for walks outside and ask God for ideas. All the time. As for article ideas… I need to know start to finish how to do the “smokey eye” look. Also, is liquid or powder foundation better for covering uneven skin? What kind of lip stick stays put without irritating and drying out lips? Maybe you could do a MakeUp 101 Series for people like me who know NOTHING about makeup. Smokey Eyes 101, Foundation 101, Lipstick 101, Eyebrows 101, etc. I love the healthy recipes you post, and I’m always grateful for you scouring current sales and coupons, so I don’t have to – ha! Keep blogging, Melissa; you have so much to offer!
