Before the Renovation

When I was looking to buy a house this fall, I knew I wanted mine as soon as I walked into it. And after only looking at three houses, I made an offer the next morning. It really used the square footage, so there was no wasted space. What I didn't like was the paint, flooring, color scheme...pretty much everything on the inside of the house! Over the next couple of weeks, I'll share progress of my house and things learned along the way. Here are a few of the before photos:

The Past Year

So, lots has happened since my last post...a move, new job, new house. Instead of writing an update, here's a year in photos!

Shoe Review: Worishofer

Two years ago I purchased two pairs of Worishofers after seeing a photo with Michelle Williams wearing them. But then they sat in my closet. They were boxed up and moved at least three times. I put them on Poshmark and they didn't sell. Then one day this summer I was cleaning out my closet and I decided to wear them. They soon became one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. 

Yes, they're technically orthopedic shoes. But they have a cute/ugly thing going on that really grows on you. Much like Birkenstocks for some people. For me, comfort is key and these hit that area perfectly. They are lightweight and almost feel like you're not wearing shoes. The footbed is incredibly soft and has an area that's just slightly higher in the arch area for long, comfortable wear. Additionally, the buckle is adjustable so a wider or narrow foot should fit fine. Sizing is spot on. I wear an 8 1/2 to 9 and the 39 fits perfectly.

Rooted in Succulents

For Mother's Day I wanted to get my mom something green. She'd been crazy for succulents lately so I was lucky to run across the Etsy store, Rooted in Succulents. The thought of buying a plant online was strange at first. But, the reviews were all positive so I took the plunge. Here's a look at the succulent cross I got for my mom.

It was more beautiful than I had imagined it would be. Wrapped perfectly for travel with priority shipping, I couldn't recommend this more for a gift...or for yourself. I still need to order myself one!

Downtown Chic: It's Posh{mark} Party-Time!

I'm super duper excited to share that I'm co-hosting a Posh{mark} Party on April 30! Here's the details:

Theme: Downtown Chic
Date: Wednesday, April 30
Time: 7 p.m. Pacific; 9 p.m. Central

If you're not familiar, Poshmark is a FAB way to sell from your closet and make a little money on the side...all from the comfort of your smart phone. "Some people" even support their J. Crew addiction with money from sales. Guess who?!

Find out more about the app by downloading Poshmark and searching "amberpresley" to see what's in my closet! And I'm always happy to answer any questions about my experience with the app.

Check out my review of the Poshmark app here.
