I wasn't kidding when I said my closet was overflowing with blue and white stripe pieces. I hope you're all not sick of them yet! Today I'm sharing one of the cutest additions to my wardrobe, which is this striped ruffle dress. If the blue and white stripes weren't enough, add in dramatic sleeves, a pretty bow, a ruffle hem, and what else could a girl ask for? Oh yea, how about an awesome price. This dress is $31, and worth every penny.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter, Passover, and weekend in general. We spent ours up at the lake, and I used that time to disconnect and enjoy time with my family. I even logged out of my Instagram account for three days! To be honest, the main reason for disconnecting was because my Instagram account had been shadowban. You may have heard that term floating around, as I know it's happening to a lot of bloggers. Basically Instagram makes it so your posts don't show up under the hashtags that you use, preventing people from finding and engaging on your posts. Because I always use the same hashtags, they thought my account was "robotic" and decided to penalize me for it. I heard one way of lifting the ban is by logging out of your account for 48 hours, and I have to admit that it was a nice break. As much as I love social media, and engaging with everyone on the platform, it sometimes can become overwhelming and quite time consuming. I think it's important for everyone to take a break from social media and technology, and be present with those around them. I'm thinking of making disconnecting for a full 48 hours a monthly thing. What do you think, do you take social media breaks?
