Wednesday marks the middle of the work week. Next to Mondays, Wednesdays can be just as infuriating. You are so close, yet so far from the weekend. Here are some of my favorite quotes that I like to repeat to myself to help me get through the midweek.
What are some of your favorite quotes that help you get through a Wednesday?
Days off are not only necessary for sanity but also all around one of the best things in the world. It might be crazy to say out loud, but many more times than I would like to admit. I find myself with a day off and with a completely blank mind as to what to do with my time. I am constantly working, if I am not working I am caring for my home or family. When the magical duty-free time of an actual day off peeks through the fog and mist. I am stumped as to what to do with myself. I know I can not be the only one out there. So here are some trusty relaxation activities that I like to do when I find myself with an empty schedule for the day.
1) Wake Up Slow And With Ease
Sleeping in is really hard for me to do. It is just something that my body refuses to do. Seeing as so must days off I still wake up around 6am. Since I am not needed anywhere no have any obligations. I like to take this time to wake up slow, sip my coffee, play on social media, and maybe watch a little Netflix. There is no rushing and no checking the clock for the time. It's just me and the morning.
2) Breathe In Some Fresh Clean Air
Another one of my trusty favorites is to calmly breathe in some fresh air. Depending on the season and the weather I find myself doing it in a few different ways. If the weather calls for it I absolutely love to walk along the water. If it's too windy, I love to sit on my porch staring out at the trees dancing while I sip a cup of coffee. If it's raining, I like to open a window or two so that the cold crisp air can make a swift appearance in my home. I find that fresh air and the outdoors help to calm and relax me. Making myself a productive powerhouse when I return to work.
Normally I am either too busy or too tired to pamper myself. So when a day off presents itself I love to use up my free time by painting my nails and treating my skin to a face mask.
I absolutely love baking. It was something I used to do all of the time, but as the children got older and my life got a little more hectic. It is an activity that I find I do not have time for. Which is why when a day off comes into view I love to start brainstorming on all of the yummy treats I can make.
5) Watch A Movie With My Youngest
I love my family and I love spending quality time with them. My youngest is a teenager so conversation is rare and avoided on his part. I honestly love that he is still willing to watch a movie with me on my days off. It is even a real treat because he will watch absolutely anything with me. Breakfast At Tiffany's, a black and white, superhero, you name it and hell most liking be willing to pop some popcorn and give it a try.

Our answer, any fashion that makes a difference.
A life that is spend working in safe conditions with fair and well deserved pay.
Why Is InRiched Misspelled?
The first is that In Every Stitch There Is A Story Worth Telling. Every fashion that we use this phrase alongside has a unique and wonderful story. A story that we feel should be celebrated and noted.
The second is that Inside Every Stitch There Is love, compassion, dignity, etc.… I couldn't even pretend to fully understand the people and artists who create such beautiful pieces of fashion. Or even understand the amount of emotion that they pour into every piece.
These are two very important and special reasons as to why we chose InRiched instead of Enriched.
Why With Every Stitch?
It is With Every Stitch for them and With Every Purchase for you.
Your Consumer Buying Power is important, it is Your Voice in this world.
So why not use it to say something meaningful?
I truly hope you can truly understand why I am so passionate about our
InRiched With Every Stitch fashions and understand why they
mean such a great deal to us here at Thavin & Marcob
As a woman, I feel that I have always felt some kind of pressure when it came to dressing. This is a feeling that has loomed over me since I was a young girl, but not something that I ever really openly talked about with anyone else. That was until I found myself having a conversation with my daughter and another mother-daughter duo. During our friendly chat, the mother made a comment about how she had every right to wear what she wants to wear, but couldn't help that even though a women entrepreneur felt like there was some mysterious guideline that she must follow when dressing. Never in my life have I had more of an "oh my gosh, me too" moment. This sparked a very interesting and empowering conversation between the four of us that I thought has such an important message I would share it with you too.
The Pressure Is Real
During the conversation, we had with the other mother-daughter duo. I realized that I was not the only one who felt that way. I couldn't believe that at points I felt maybe I was a little over paranoid or full of myself to think that complete strangers would have an opinion over what shoes I was choosing to wear that day. I also couldn't believe this pressure and judgment is common among women and is not something that is spoken on too often.
Don't Let Others Define You, Find Empowerment In The Negative
Being You Is The Best You That You Can Be
You Are You
You Are Worthy
You Are Beautiful
You are Amazing
You have to power to walk away from the negative, from the judgments,
and you have the ability to limit the power others have over you.
I am fortunate enough to meet a lot of amazing people online through our outstanding Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook Community. Although I have noticed that my passions seem to be lost in translation from screen to screen. Once I noticed that I embarked on a quest to learn how to properly portray my passions while not just engaging in an in-person conversation, but also through the conversations I have with the amazing people I interact with online.
While I have not had time to read the entire book, I have had time to listen to a short auto reading of a section of the book. Within this section, I amazingly learned the key element that I believe to have been missing. Here is all that I learned from this short clip.
Asking the wrong questions
When someone asked why I do what I do, my answer is always, "My love for fashion is my drive".
Which is a true statement, my love for fashion is why I have the job I have and why I love it. Although after some thought I realized that my answers lack in both luster and depth.
I do love fashion, but my passion does not simply end there. It also greatly extends to all of the people each piece of fashions affects.

A Deeper Look Into Our Collections...
In a day and age where convenience and speed are two very sought after qualities. It is important to keep in mind that what sometimes is sacrificed or looked over for such luxuries, is quality, as well as ethics. When you choose to support any fashion in our Economist Collection you are taking back that control and saying to the world, "I love myself, and I love others". Each and every product in this collection helps to provide empowerment and dignity by abling people to receive fair wages in a safe working environment.
It takes immense amounts of courage and blind faith to dive head first into actively chasing your dreams. It's scary, overwhelming, and can feel like at times the whole world would enjoy it if you fail. Sharing your amazing talents and passions with the world takes guts. We know this, we also know how hard it can be to uncover grand new artists with seemingly secret hidden treasures. This is why we created our Supporters Collection. We wanted to make it easy for you to be able to marvel and to support the work of courageous artists out chasing their dreams.
With convenience and speed also comes waste. Tons and tons of waste, in fact, that is just tossed into landfills without a care for what it does to mother nature. I love our planet and I desire nothing more than for it to retain its lushes qualities for centuries to come. If we take a magnifying glass and focus just on the harmful byproducts fast fashion has placed on the environment. It is honestly horrifyingly astounding that you seemingly innocent pair of jeans helped to drain a once abundant river. This is why whenever I come across eco-friendly products my heart leaps for joy at the chance to style up my everyday life with something special and meaningful. Our Environmentalist Collections is home to chic fashionable products that are not only a friend to you and your wardrobe but also to our beloved planet.
