Well, working 7 days a week, what with the regular job (frequently requiring overtime, for reasons I won’t go into here), my regular volunteer work through the week & trying desperately to pound out posts for my 2 blogs. I just need to take a bit of time off, I’ve had vacations from my 9 to 5, not really for my volunteer work & never from a blog. I’ve been doing Orbb’s Fashion since November 29, 2014, I’ve taken breaks for critical computer problems & one because I just could not make the deadlines, but I spent that entire break struggling to make the next week’s deadlines so I was never really on any kind of tangible break. I feel like I’m suffocating in burnout because I never have a moment to stop & enjoy myself that doesn’t lead to a missed deadline. So, I need to take a bit of time to myself, play some of my games & have a moment to breath. I will return in a couple of weeks or so with fresh inspiration. 😉 Happy shopping my friends. ❤
Today’s item spotlight I’ve had for a couple of weeks now & have been quite enjoying it. It might not be considered a fashion accessory by traditional standards, but it definitely is one while you’re enjoying an occasional canned beverage. I ordered this particular cozy from Amazon & the lovely vendor was quick to send it my way. It’s actually quite soft & quickly molds to my grip (as well as keeping my finger dry & warm, along side keeping the can cold). The sturdy construction could, no doubt, handle the washing machine, though I think I’ll set it out to dry when the time comes. I also like that it’s an interesting conversation piece, but I will have to keep it away from one of my little sisters, as she’s likely to claim it, lol.

I have been with Kitsy Lane for a long time, at least as long as one could be with such a fledgling company anyway. I stumbled across it nearly at the beginning. Originally it was a wonderful shop with way too many pieces to select anywhere near all of them for my boutique. The past little over a year I have watched the potential stock dwindle from well over 500 treasures to a bit over 100. A while back they stopped hosting the newsletters, so when they did choose to run extra sales it was unlikely to be noticed. The sales they have chosen to run, since last year are advertised after they expire. The vast majority of the selections cannot be placed in my weekly flash sale, as their prices do not actually reduce. While they always had a small percentage of good quality pieces, now that the number of pieces has dwindled to nearly nothing there are really very, very few that are worth purchasing.
I sent an email to my concierge a bit back to inquire about the total lack of attention from HQ & all they had to say was (paraphrasing here) too bad, we’re making money doing other things. It really breaks my heart that I have to leave them, having been so devoted for so long, but what else can I do at this point? I’ve sensed this moment coming for quite some time & the inevitable has finally come.
Jewelry has been my life for many years & until blogging came into my life it was also my only job. Now that my schedule has been cleared I will be focusing a lot more energy into my blog & instead of posting every other day as before, I will be posting 6 days a week. At this point it will be one post for each of those days, until I get into the swing of that hustle, it’s possible that there will be multiple posts in a day in the future, but this is what I can guarantee for now.
I appreciate you, my lovely readers, for taking part in this point of transition in my life. As always my heart is with you all. ❤
