I hope you all enjoyed my little DIY video linked in my previous blog because today will also be a little different. It is definitely still along the lines of self love because it is all about doing what I love. I have recently joined a website called Mint Wish. It is an up and coming online boutique that sells really cute clothes. I have ALWAYS been into simple fashion. I have always had an eye for what goes well together and dressing up nicely. Over the years, I have lost touch with that side of me and I want to bring it back because it made me feel good and I loved it. I didn’t look cute to impress anyone but myself.
I have never been too much into makeup but I do throw on the occasional eyeliner, eye shadow and mascara. The one thing I have always been into has been putting outfits together. I have always loved simple fashion ( I am not into high fashion at all). I love everyday items that can also be versatile but my favorite seasons have to be summer clothes and fall clothes.
Another thing I wanted to touch on is how people think moms should dress. No, a mom does not need to cover up her battle scars, her loose belly, her stretch marks. A mom can be covered from head to toe or wear a mini skirt and a crop top. There is no right or wrong way for a mom to dress. The way we dress does not determine what kind of parent we are. I know my kids see me in crop tops and shorts all the time (at least this summer). I believe it will show my kids to respect a woman and her choice of clothing. If anyone has a problem with the way I dress or my skin showing then they can walk around with their eyes closed because it’s not changing. I touched on the mom belly a bit on the video but I wanted to make it clear that one of the main reasons I stopped “Dressing nice” was because of the stigma behind the way a mom is supposed to look; the “snap back” and then compared to what a “beautiful body” looks like. I NEVER snapped back and the size I am now is because I dedicated myself to doing at home workouts. I started these workouts well before December, quitting for a couple months in between and I mean really quitting and getting down on myself. I have been many shapes and sizes but now I am going to enjoy myself no matter what I look like and I hope all you moms out there do too!
So about Mint Wish, I was a little afraid to order but they offered me a discount so I went ahead and used my paypal. I had never heard of this site before and I know that paypal makes it safe for you to shop online. I ordered six items and they were delivered in “two” days. I put two in quotes because of labor day and the weekend it took a little longer, understandably. I ordered on August 30th and by the 31st my order was shipped! Processing was super quick and I was super excited when my package came in via USPS on Tuesday the 4th of September, right on time. All of the clothing fit well, I usually wear a medium so I ordered all medium and they all fit well. One thing I will mention is that one of the tops I ordered said “one size”, I believe it will fit only up to a Large because the bottom hem is a bit fitted on me and I am a Medium. The hem does have stretch to it and it could just be me because of how I like my items to fit. If you watch the video it will be the greenish crop top I try on.
So far, I believe that I will keep ordering from Mint Wish once they get all the cute tops I want back in stock or course! If you would like to give Mint Wish a try, click on my link and use my code to save 20% off your purchase! Also check out the YouTube video on my mini haul from Mint Wish HERE!
