8 Things to Do When Recovering from A Stressful Experience

8 Things to Do When Recovering from A Stressful Experience
The more life experience I have, the more I learn and change. Sometimes those learning experiences are through positive experiences and sometimes they are much more difficult to get through. We all have our own scars don't we? Most of us have been or will go through many stressful experiences within our lifetimes. This can include the loss of a loved one, experiencing a violent act, serious illness of ourselves or loved ones, and more. It’s sad to think that this is a common part of life, but learning how to effectively recover from a traumatic event will go a long way in making it easier to move forward.
We all respond in different ways and it can be difficult to notice signs of these stressors in other people. You may feel irritable, anxious or depressed. You may even withdraw from others. Many people end up living in denial to protect themselves from the emotional impact of the event. A lack of sleep, changes in appetite and withdrawal from daily activities are also common symptoms. But what can we do to cope?

6 Ways to Wear a Striped Jumpsuit & Confident Twosday Linkup
We have quite the collaboration for today and I am so excited about it! I'm teaming up with two amazingly sweet and beautiful bloggers to show you 6 ways to style the same budget-friendly jumpsuit. Carrie at Curly Crafty Mom bought this adorable jumpsuit first and Kellyann from This Blonde's Shopping Bag and I jumped on the bandwagon. It's too cute to pass up! They were kind enough to agree to style it two ways for this fun collaboration!

My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway

My First Styling Box: Fashom Review & Giveaway

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you all have a safe and relaxing day!! We are spending it at the pool as a family. I wanted to pop in and share the recent Fashom styling box I received last week. There are so many styling box options out there to choose from. It's nice if you want to try new things or don't have time to shop for yourself. They make great options if you don't live in or near a location that gives you options to shop at a brick and mortar store, too. But I've actually never tried a styling box! I think I must have control issues and like to search for and know exactly what I am purchasing and for how much. But that means I might be missing out on things that a stylist can see would be flattering on me or suit my lifestyle. So when Fashom reached out to me I was intrigued to say the least. I really try to shop on a budget and after looking at their price points I was really pleased. Not to mention there are nice discounts for purchasing multiple options. If I had purchased all of these items it would have only been $152.60. You get a 30% discount for purchasing the entire box and 25% discount for purchasing 3 or 4 items. So here is a breakdown of what I was sent!
