Odds & Ends

Checking In – March 2016

Checking In 3.30.16.png

Hello Hello!!!  How are you all doing?!

I feel like I have not posted much of anything since my last Planner Addict Box in February (I just posted my March one just below 🙂 ).  When I think back on my New Year…New Beginnings post I feel that I’ve let myself down in a way to post at least once a week.  One thing I have been trying to do in the meantime is get a hang on using WordPress and understanding the settings.  As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve changed the background from what it was originally.  I love the simple clean white look with just a small pop of color – and of course the pictures add enough color on their own.

Another thing that I’ve been trying to do (which I’d love to hear from you guys about) is how to make it so that the posts are not one big continues post but clips of each one and then to click on each individually to read more.  From looking on other bloggers’ sites, this seems the simplest way to see all the posts instead of scrolling through one very long post.  I tried changing it in the settings (and clicked save!) and still it appears in the same way.  Any tips you guys have on settings or if I’m not clicking something I should?

I also wanted to start a new section called The Cookie Corner.  My sister has been baking up a storm recently and have made some really amazing cakes for friends and families for birthdays and special occasions and she loves sharing pictures of them.  I thought it would be a great idea to make a section to share these with you guys as well.  I also have a great store of recipes that I would like to make and share for anyone that would be interested and I would post them in that section so that they would be easier to find.

As far as subscription boxes go, the ones that I have currently active right now are my Planner Addict Box, Popsugar Must Have Box, and Fortune Cookie Soap Box – the first two monthly while the FCS box is quarterly.  I have temporarily suspended the FabFitFun box for now as I’ve found I’ve accumulated too much products with both Popsugar and FabFitFun sending full size products, in addition to things I’ve purchased myself to try or use.  I do hope to get back to FabFitFun later, but for now I’m just sticking with Popsugar since their boxes are just as amazing.  I still have my Julep Maven subscription, however, I have been skipping boxes recently because, there too, I have waaaay too much nail polish!  I’m thinking of doing a Nail Polishes of the Week post where I post the colors I’ve worn during that week and their brands.

Talk to you all soon and hope you all have a wonderful day and are enjoying this Spring weather 🙂

~XOXO~
