The Truth About My Life Right Now

Why do I do this to myself? I go months and months and months without blogging and totally kick myself in the ass for it.
Guys, the last few months of my life have been hard. I talked about 2016 in a recap in December and that was my last post. Depression is a silly biznatch like that. It makes you want to do nothing, see no one, and gives you literally NO motivation. But as a wife, mom, and full time employee, doing “nothing” isn’t an option. So I went through the motions, day in and day out, and guys…it was draining. It IS draining. As in currently, I AM DRAINED.

I have such a weird complex with blogging.
Do I want to blog? Absolutely. But do I feel pressured to dress the best, act the best, have the best? Absolutely. It’s so silly. So so so silly. I’m sick of feeling like I have “nothing to post”.

One thing I’ve learned about the internet is that there is ALWAYS room for you. I feel like a broken record when I say that, but it’s true. If you want to talk, pour your heart out, and put whatever the hell you want on the internet…GO FOR IT!

I’ve been at a really low point in my life. I thought after we miscarried I would have nothing to talk about. I felt like no one would be interested in anything else going on in my life. But do I blog for other people? Do I write for their satisfaction? Obviously not. I never have. So why would I start now?

The truth is…I’ve been in a major rut. I’m trying so hard to get out of it, because trust me when I say it is the worst thing I’ve ever gone through. I am so thankful for a supportive husband. And I don’t mean support like “oh yeah he loves and supports me”. I mean supportive like he recognizes my down days and can say to me “are you having a down day? Is there anything I can do? What do you need?” That to me is true love, and support, and a best friend. He really is my rock.

I am hoping to get in more of a routine with blogging. I can do this. This is my happy place and no matter how many times I stray from it, I always have a longing to come back. Something about writing clears both my head and my heart. So here’s to writing in 2017!

Pretending To Be A Fashion/Style Blogger

I really love cute clothes, but I am really bad about talking/posting about them. Hence why I refer to myself as a “lifestyle blogger” and not a “fashion or style blogger”. HOWEVER, I am giving this a shot because I am absolutely in love with this top, this company, AND there is a giveaway. 
So hi, hello, my name is Kaylin…the wannabe fashion blogger! 

I love online shopping. Who doesn’t? AMIRIIIIGHT? Don’t lie. It’s okay to admit these things. Nothing to be ashamed about. So many cute stores, so little time. Being a twenty something year old wife and mom who works full time and feels like I’m pushing 50, I have a hard time finding clothes to fit my needs. My “I have a job to go to so I need to look put together but I still love cute clothes”, needs. My “I’m a mom and need to look put together”, needs. My “hashtag modest is hottest but I still wanna look GOOD”, needs. A lot of online stores don’t offer clothes for gals like me. I want all the cute clothes, but i’d like my butt to not be hanging out. Where are those gals at?!? *Insert hand pump to the sky* WOO! SOUL SISTAS! 

Anyway, I digress. 
Y’all. Have you ever shopped at PINKBLUSH? So many cute clothes. And I mean SOOO many cute clothes! And cute clothes for WOMEN. REAL women. That’s my favorite thing. Also, they offer a maternity line. Which if ever I am so lucky, I will surely be purchasing from! Guys. This site is too cute to pass up and you need to go check it out. 

I am going to link some of my favorite pieces from their site because hi, hello, trying to be helpful. You’re welcome.





I love the tunic I picked out. I feel like it can be worn a ton of different ways and it just screams SPRING! If you’re not a towering skyscraper like me, you could even pull this off as a dress. But these legs don’t permit any of that to happen. Dress is up, dress it down. I absolutely love pieces like that! 

And if you’ve made it this far in reading this, bless you! Kidding, but head over to my instagram where I will be giving away a $75 gift card for PINKBLUSH! Whaaat?! Yupp! $75 to spend on whatever you want! 

(I just had to throw this in here because she kills me with how cute and sweet she is)
