topshop coverup

The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is going on right now!  So many great pieces are on sale! This cover-up has been my favorite cover-up this spring.  It is currently on sale!!  Also loving this swimsuit!

These slides are also on sale and they are my constant go to.  They live by my front door, I put them on all the time for walking my dog, taking the kids to school.  They are the perfect throw on quickly shoe.

This and this are great basic tees I wear all the time.  And my favorite jeans are on sale!  This dress is great for summer, so many fun colors and a great fit. And this dress is a great staple to have in your closet.  Perfect on it’s own or layered.

I ordered this top a month ago.  Haven’t had a chance to wear it yet, but can’t wait because it’s sooo cute!  I have these shoes and wear them a ton.  They go with so much!

Life Update & Why I Haven’t Been Blogging

rachel Barkules

I’m sure you have noticed that I have not been blogging for the past 3 months.  And my social media presence has been very minimal.

The reason is, I am currently going thru something extremely difficult in my personal life. I have been going thru this for a long time now.  But the sh*t really hit the fan around the holidays.  And things got waaaaay worse each day after that.  I tried to continue blogging.  But it became to difficult to fake a smile when I was hurting so bad on the inside.  I found it necessary to take a step back and focus on myself.

Although I am not going to share exactly what I am going thru right now (I will one day when I’m not in the middle of it), I can tell you this is one of the hardest things I have had to face.  I am personally going thru my own crisis, plus my loved ones are facing difficult times of their own.  My sister, Jaclyn, just got a divorce.  And my Grandma (my Mom’s Mom) had brain surgery 3 weeks ago.  To say the least, my entire family is really going thru a difficult time right now.

Thank you all so much for your love and support!  I have missed you all very much.  I really appreciate your understanding while I am going thru this private matter.  I love and appreciate every single one of you!!

I have always loved blogging.  It has been an amazing platform for me to express my love of clothes, makeup and accessories.  I have really missed it and plan to be returning to it very soon. :)

Much love! XO, Rachel
