#FridayFrivolity - Funny & Adorable Babies Edition!

Hello Friday, and hello friends!

Our theme for this week's #FridayFrivolity is funny babies... a theme that I have been determined to do for ages now, because I was so exciting about using this video:

Cutest thing ever, or cutest thing in the HISTORY OF EVER?  Love, love, love.

This is another one I love... if you don't laugh along with them, I think you might need to get your funny bone checked.... 

Capsule Wardrobe Layering Ideas + Great Dresses at a STEAL!

Good news!  I've gotten started with a couple of part-time tutoring agencies... yay for a job!  However, it all happened pretty quick, so I'm scrambling to get all my ducks in a row and figure out my schedule, etc.  In the meantime, here is a collection I had already put together -- great dresses at a STEAL!  All of these choices are $50 or less... many are on sale, so check 'em out quick before they sell out!





Here are some style tips for dresses in a Capsule Wardrobe:

Attempted Craft Adventure... Recycle an Old Graphic Tee into a Fashionable Accessory!

Easy t-shirt DIY reincarnation - simple tutorial for recycling an old tee into a trendy tote bag!  Perfect easy craft project for Earth Day, Elementary or older! via Devastate BoredomYou may have noticed that we don't get crafty very often around here.  I love the IDEA of being crafty, but it's a lot harder to find time to prioritize that for me.  ...especially because my attempts frequently turn out more like Pinterest-Fails then they do DIY blog post material, ha!

But, for once, I got mad crafty!  And it turned out just how I had hoped!  

#FridayFrivolity -- Olympics Edition!! 1996 Atlanta Games Flashback....

Hello Friday and hello friends!

I have had an exhausting but very fulfilling week, and I'm jotting off my Friday Frivolity super last minute... but I'm still so glad to see you all!  

Our theme at #FridayFrivolity this week is the Olympics... I bet you can't guess why!  ;P  

What I have to share isn't funny but it IS near and dear to my heart....

In 1996 the Olympics were held in Atlanta, my childhood home city.  We were excited and looking forward to it for YEARS beforehand!  The energy that summer was so palpable, and we had the TV on constantly, since all the local channels were pretty much showing non-stop Olympics, broadcasted live.  

Then there was this moment.  




Twelve year old me had never been so inspired by another young person.

(I teared up watching that clip, twenty years later!)

That is, by far, the most powerful Olympics memory I have.

I hope everyone is enjoying the games so far!  And I promise to be funny again next week.   ;P


Exciting News for My Fashion Followers! (But the rest of you can read it too...)

I have exciting news for my fashion followers!  There is a new innovation over here at Devastate Boredom that I think may help us stay BFFs for life... but first, a little backstory to explain.  Bear with me!

("Bear" in that phrase never looks right... but "bare with me," definitely isn't right... that one would seem like I was inviting you for an afternoon at a nudist colony!  :P)

I have HUGE news!  My shiny, awesome new book Secrets of the Capsule Wardrobe:  How to Find Your Personal Style & Create a Happy, Confident Closet! is now available!!

Okay, I'll be honest, it's actually been available via pre-order for a few days... and I've been dropping hints about it here and there... but have been too shy to make a huge fuss.  
But, shyness be damned, haha!  I've worked hard on this book, and it's pretty much AWESOME.

"What makes it so awesome?" you might be asking... or if you're more cynical you might be thinking, "Well, of course, the author is going to say that..." but, DUDE, it is completely true.

Oh friends.  You know that moment when you just have to shake your head and wonder... "what was I thinking?"  I feel that way about my July goals right now!  

I wrote a post full of awesome advice on how to set attainable goals, goals that you can actually achieve without getting discouraged (and it WAS awesome advice, if I do say so myself), and then I DIDN'T FOLLOW IT.

I made my goals completely UNACHIEVABLE, by setting too-specific goals to accomplish on a DAILY basis.  

Sorry for all the caps, but I'm so mad at myself!

Here were my unachievable goals for the month of July:

Hello Friday, and hello friends!  Today's #FridayFrivolity topic is "camping," chosen mostly because Lisa at Syncopated Mama is a camping FIEND.  Seriously, on the night before the zombie apocalypse, I'm headed to her house!  My chances of survival will at least quadruple with her around.

My own experiences with camping are mostly limited to childhood memories, since my husband and I tend to feel this way about camping...
