Sky Blue


Better late than never- that’s my motto! Do you agree?! Some folks are sticklers when it comes to being on time and meeting target deadlines. I admire that – I aspire for it to be my M.O.... one day…. Would you believe that it is challenging for me to stick to deadlines (particularly self-imposed ones)? This struggle has been going on for as long as I can remember. True, there have been periods of my life where for one reason or another I found myself doing better with this challenge versus worse, nonetheless admittedly it requires constant effort on my part.
Take this post as an example. I planned to type it up and post it last night for this morning. Did that happen? No! Why not? Well, while I could provide a list of ‘valid’ factors that may have contributed to the eventual outcome… I won’t because the bottom line is: I just didn’t do it  O_O
So here we are on Friday afternoon (for some of you) and this post finally makes it’s way to the blog. Is it better late than never?! I say YES! Come on, this dress is beautiful! I got so many compliments both times that I wore it. The pattern is garden-like at best and the color reminds me of blue summer skies. I scored this via Gwynnie Bee- and YOU can too!

As for my life long challenge, there are a number of tips that I’ve learned over the years. The best one to date is to continue to strengthen my time management skills. Instead of over-scheduling and or procrastinating, the idea is to prioritize and get things done! LOL! Easier said than done, but for me the key is to keep trying even when I feel like I’ve fallen off the wagon. What tips have proved helpful for you?

  2. Lmao I'm soo bad at meeting deadlines too. It's just so easy to get tempted into pushing it back just a leeettle bit... then that little bit turning into 3 weeks. But this dress is beautiful and you're beautiful so I'm glad ya didn't let a little procrastination stop ya! Keep up the work girl.
