Facing The Inevitable

So I get it, it's only August. But only August means almost September which is considered Fall, and while I hate to be the bearer of bad news people, what I'm getting at is it's pretty much Winter. Don't worry, I didn't want to come to terms with it either but we have to stop being naive and just come to terms with the truth. I know it may still "feel" like it's 90 degrees outside but don't kid yourselves, it's probably negative ten. Or at least close. 

This all leads me to my next subject. Winter clothing. Are you prepared? Because I'm not. If the polar vortex came tomorrow [which after this downer of a post I wouldn't be surprised] I would be screwed outta house and home. Or at least out of gloves. Until now anyhow...you see, there is a great little etsy shop who wants to make sure you are prepared. It's name is Coco and Cocoa and winter gear is their specialty.

Then again, so is blogging. Here's a thought for you--people who can both write a blog and make cute stuff are rock stars. I know this only because I am not one and it's safe to say I never will be one. It's cool though, I came to terms with it back when I was eating rabbit turds out of my parents house years ago. Ya win some, ya lose some--Julie the shop owner and blog writer of all of the above won. 

Because she has already won at life, she believes one of you should too. So much so, that she is giving the chance for one of you to win $50 to her shop today. If that's not awesome I don't know what is. Scratch that. The margarita I just drank was pretty on point. 

Now go get prepared for Winter peeps..it's coming...like yesterday.

  1. Wow! She does really great work! I'm loving the slouchy hats and the boot cuffs. Although I don't think I'd be able to stay away from that cute lil newborn bunny for my own and to give as gifts to all my friends who are expecting. Thanks for the opportunity to win!!
