You’ve probably noticed a few blank days on this blog recently. That’s because I’ve been giving myself permission to focus on different priorities each day. Often that means a post for this blog, but some days it doesn’t. My sister (who has been following Hourglassy almost since it began) also noticed the blank days, and she didn’t like them. She suggested I post something each day, even if it’s just a photo or a quote, so that you don’t think I’ve dropped off the face of the earth. I like her idea. That way when you see little filler posts, you’ll know I’m still around–I’m just thinking about something else, including longer posts on subjects I’ve been wanting to cover in more depth.

Today is a little bit of a filler, but not because I’ve been pondering a super serious topic. It’s because I spent the morning (last week’s jury case settled!) matching socks and reorganizing each of my drawers because I’m tired of not knowing what my clothing options are each morning.

The only bust-related connection I can think of is that this arose from attending Curve last week, and all women with full busts wear bras, and bras are lingerie, and lingerie is a reminder that little things matter: simple acts of self care keep us sane.

The rows of gorgeous tights at Curve made me want to maintain an orderly collection of my own tights that I can draw from with ease–no more forgotten wads at the bottom of a drawer. After this morning, I’m closer to that goal.

The Soak booth made me want to keep up with my handwashing. There’s something so feminine about handwashing our lingerie and hanging it to dry, and the Soak packaging and scents play right along with that.  (Be sure to enter Holly’s competition to win a gift set of their beautiful new Yuzu scent.)

I finally met Jacqueline, the founder of Soak!

Finally, these beautiful high-waisted panties made me reevaluate my own underwear drawer, which has been in danger of being overrun by purely functional undies. Curve reminded me that we can have function and beauty together.
