What I Learned About Myself From Breaking My Hip + Introducing Vivacity Sportswear

What I Learned About Myself From Breaking My Hip + Introducing Vivacity Sportswear | Designing From My Closet

At this time last year, I had been bound to a wheelchair for almost two months after finding out I broke my hip and awaited surgery.  In hindsight, I wish I would have shared that part of my life here on the blog because it was truly a huge part of it.  Long story short, in September of 2016 I went on vacation with my husband to celebrate his birthday.  We did a ton of walking which I was usually up for.  A few days in, I kept having to stop and sit down.  I then spent the latter half of our time off in the hotel room watching tv because my hip hurt so bad.  Well I am not sure exactly how it happened because I did not have a fall or an incident, but an MRI showed an internal crack in the ball of my hip that was starting to spread down my femur.  Pain does not even begin to describe this intense feeling and as I sat day after day having my husband help me with the most menial of tasks, I began to think, like think A LOT.

Today I want to share with you what I learned about myself from breaking my hip along with sharing  Vivacity Sportwear that is helping me feel really cute during stretching exercises and walking.

How To Edit Your Closet: For the Indecisive and Sentimental Woman

How to Edit Your Closet

Throughout the years I have read so many how to posts on editing your closet and have gained so much knowledge from them.  You probably have seen them and most include methods of removing items from your closet and placing them in piles labeled something like KEEP, TOSS, MEND/ALTER, and DONATE/SELL.  In a logical world, that all seems wonderful and good, but for some of us, we tend to be either indecisive or sentimental, or both about a lot, if not most of the items in our closet.  After all, we have these pieces in our closet for a reason, whether it was purchased by yourself or was a gift.  Today I am going to be sharing my technique of how I edit my closet, both in a massive way when you have not done it in a while, and in a maintaining way.
