On The Board

The last few weeks have been just beyond crazy.  I had more than one whhhhat is happening moment, jam-packed scheduling,  and for a few stressful hours, a completely unattractive eye twitch.

In preparation for Deck Your Closet, our apartment looked like a really cool but totally stress-inducing craft room slash thrift shop.  Our bed frame and all the contents normally stored underneath our bed were also all over our living room (we broke our bed...in a non-weird way, a piece of it apparently warped and we were woken up last Sunday morning 
when a section of our bed gave way).  Work has been so much fun but just non-stop, and I'm not sure if you've noticed, but I've been trying to blog 5 days a week.  And, I'm proud to say that I've done so for an entire month.  That's 20 posts in 30 days, an aliciafashionista.com record!

Yes, it has been a lot.  But keeping this simple holiday inspired message on the board has actually helped keep me sane.  Every time I'd look at the day and think "There's NO way I can get all of this done, it's mission impossible," I'd simply remind myself that it will all work out.  It always does.

Things have thankfully already slowed down, and I can now try to get into the Christmas spirit.  Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and thank you to everyone who was involved with yesterday's events. Both Deck Your Closet and Timmy's Telethon were a huge success!



  1. Keep up the posting! I know it is hard to post that often! Good job!


  2. I need to try to push myself to blog more. I'm more of a 3 times a week during a good week kind of gal lol

    1. I hear ya, that's what I used to do. Pushing it to 5 isn't so bad, it's just about being organizes I guess. Worth a try anyway, I know you could do it!

  3. That eye twitch looked amazing, what are you talking about! ;)

  4. Sounds like you've had a stressful time of it, but you've earned your time off. Enjoy the holidays! (I still have a couple weeks to go sadly.)

    1. Sigh, still in the thick of things, though hoping they'll wind-down soon. Thanks Lisa and I hope you're able to stop and enjoy the holidays soon too :) xo

  5. *sigh*
    'Tis the season :)


  6. Oh my gosh, not the eye twitch, seriously, those are the worst. I had a crooked top knot + it was almost ready to fall out the other night... and I thought of you! Haha, so sexy for when Martin came home! ;) And yay for things slowing down + Christmas! Hope to see you soon, lovely! xo

  7. I'm so inspired by how much you take on and how you're able to accomplish it all! It's really amazing - keep up the fabulous work!

  8. Posting 5 days a week?! It's understandable that you were feeling a little stressed with that much blogging, the holidays and everything else on your plate! I hope that things settle down a bit so you can enjoy the season, although things never seem to settle enough this time of year.
