Nothing Fits Why….

Hello Loves,

So, the other day I was searching and, searching for affordable ethical clothing that will fit me and, honestly there is not much. I think I chatted with you all about not really finding to much at thrift stores that fit my size and, that 90% of my wardrobe is from Poshmark; I was not joking if you ask my friends and, family whenever anyone asks, “where did you get that,” I always respond, “Poshmark.” I absolutely love Poshmark but, sometimes I get really frustrated and, just want clothing that fits well on me. I don’t think it is to much to ask for clothes that fit, especially my chest. I’m sure most of you can relate when it comes to romper, jumpsuits, suits etc. There is always something wrong with a piece of clothing that just doesn’t fit quite right. Now, I am not an expert at sewing, in fact, you could call me a beginner but, I am determined to make myself some clothes that fit really well. I took pictures of items I liked that I want in my wardrobe fitted to my size. I know I’m not going to be able to whip up a dress right away; I do plan on practicing but, I am on a mission to get fabric I love that is ethical and, start sewing away. I do not know how long it will take me but, I’d like to have 10 summer outfits by June. It may be a bit presumptuous however, I would really like some clothing that fits to perfection. I have sewn before and, have made a few pieces but, nothing to this extent without the supervision of a fashion professor. This has been a long time coming especially now that I am a supporter of ethical fashion. I would like ten outfits that are casual/one’s I can wear out, 3 workout outfits and, 3 bathing suits. I will have to figure out how to make all of these things, where I can get fabric and, what time span I am looking at. I made a romper in a 2 hour and 45 minute class over about 13 weeks .  I was done early and, that is because I had an amazing lady next to me who sewed in high school and, she helped me figure out the pattern and, how to sew some of the pieces together. I was also, determined to get it done. That is less then 39 hours of work so, if I can get one piece done a week it will take 16 weeks to accomplish a ten piece summer collection. If I start at the end of January I should be done by end of second week of May. I have to purchase all fabric etc.. which can be very pricey but, it is custom made which could cost thousands of dollars and, I think it will be worth it as long as the pieces are wearable… I am also, on my way to losing weight and, I don’t want there to be a problem that all the clothing is too big so, I will have to see if a tailor or I will be able to take in the clothing. I am so excited/nervous to accomplish this. Please let me know if you would like a series about making clothing without really knowing everything about sewing. I am sure I will learn a lot. If you have any tips please let me know in the comments below. I think I will talk about this on my YouTube Channel as well so, if like to watch videos instead of reading I will leave my channel link below. If you want to follow my progress through instagram you can on @foreverseekingwanderlust and @allievluv.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

April Favorites

They say April showers bring May flowers but, for New Jersey May is even rainier then April. All of this rainy weather makes me think back to all of my April favorites! I have six favorites to discuss and, they are not the typical monthly favorites that you see on YouTube. I will also, have this posted as a video on my YouTube Channel for those of you who would rather watch me talking about the products.

Chia Seeds have been featured on my YouTube Channel more than once this month and, that is because they are yummy and crazy good for you!!Chia Seeds In A Bowl

A 1 ounce (28 grams) serving of chia seeds contains (12)Fiber: 11 grams.

    • Protein: 4 grams.
    • Fat: 9 grams (5 of which are Omega-3s).
    • Calcium: 18% of the RDA.
    • Manganese: 30% of the RDA.
    • Magnesium: 30% of the RDA.
    • Phosphorus: 27% of the RDA.
    • They also contain a decent amount of Zinc, Vitamin B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2.

My favorite Lip Balm I Have ever used from Bear’s Beauty                                               

The texture is smooth and gilds on your lips gently. It 100% cruelty free % Vegan. 

Protective Tint Balm

My favorite is tangerine which I have had for over six months ! If you shop in my Poshmark closet I have teamed up with Jerra so, you will receive one of here samples and, if you are lucky a lip balm! My Poshmark Closet is @eyeheartedu and if you do not have Poshmark use my code : HFNIS for $10 Poshmark credit. If you want to try one of Jerra’s many fabulous products the link is below!

If you all follow me on Instagram you will know that I have been doing a bit of archery. I have to say it is quite fun. It is great to try new activities & move around!

We have just gotten started on our garden so, an April favorite would be seeds to plant our vegetable garden. I absolutely love the garden and the serenity you find from the plants. We are planting a few different kinds of lettuce, tomatoes, melons, beans, and few other veggies!



As you know I have been ranting and raving about ethical fashion and, it is for a good reason. As I have chatted about to you all, ethical fashion is important so, we have clean water, no more unfair labor, and so the landfills stay as empty as possible! April really was the month that sparked this ethical movement so, I thought I’s add it to my April Favs.

And if you all didn’t see this coming you do not read enough of my blog posts or watch enough of my YouTube Videos. I feel like I should be sponsored by Poshmark lol the amount of promotion that I do for them. I just love Poshmark and the idea that you are recycling your clothing to have other Posher’s reuse them. It is a great platform to start a business and, earn an extra income.

Wanderlust: Summer Palnning|Life Goals|Working Goals

Hello Loves,

This is going to prove to be an exciting summer with the prospect of growing all of my businesses and, a bit of traveling. Ahh, the thrill of the unknown and, new places to venture. Today, is a working/planning day for me as I need to increase my sales on Poshmark & Amazon. Along with those business goals I am also, trying to increase my views for my YouTube channel and of course my blog. With my new goals I am a little jumbled with how to get this all accomplished and, of course, intertwine my healthy life & helping the planet goals. Will all this on my mind, I have found I have become more exhausted and, have learned to listen to my body. One of the main reasons I am “trying” to work from home is because I do not have the energy for a normal 9 to 5 job. Some days I am thoroughly exhausted and I need a mid-day nap or a quick break. I am strategizing not only accomplishing my work goals but, taking my life & health goals into consideration. I would say most of the time we do not take care of ourselves and, it leads to health problems later on in life. I want to take care of myself now instead of 30 years down the road when I have worked myself down along with my health. Healing myself from the inside out is my main goal for my life right now. I follow many Vegan YouTubers and, when I wake up in the morning I look forward to watching their videos. Mel, from Raw Nourishment always seems to have the perfect video for what I need to hear that day. Her recent video about making a list and manifesting what you want in your life was just right. Although, her video was about her vegan boyfriend, that is not a high priority on my list this year because I am learning to heal my body, grow my businesses, and love the person I am. Each day I have grown to learn more about myself or my body and, it is fascinating. I no longer worry about what people think of me I am just myself and, I Love it. It is hard to express the change in the way I am because it is not  a physical change but, more of a self accepting change. I feel I have always been myself but, I feel I have actually embraced it. I am more determined and focused to accomplish my goals and aspirations. I am self aware and aware of the disturbance we are putting our planet through. Recently, I have talked about ethical clothing and moving my Poshmark closet into an ethical clothing closet and, possibly my own boutique. Growing my businesses helps me to grow as a person and move forward in my life. In the next two years I would like to get my own place and, travel. To be able to travel & get my own place I need to work ten times harder and longer to accomplish that. I think that everything that I need to get done I will and, my life will fold out when I least expect it to. Let me know how you are feeling and, if you have become enlightened within yourself. Thank you for taking the time to read and, if you enjoyed it please share it would mean a great deal to me.

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,

What Is Poshmark?

Many you may have heard of Poshmark and other may have not. If you follow me on social media you know I am a huge advocate for Poshmark and love using it! I have decided I am going to be doRomeo & Juliet Couture Dresses & Skirts - Romeo & Juliet Couture Dressing a blogging and video series on Poshmark but, before I get started I wanted to give you an idea of what Poshmark is and, give you the ability to ask question and, get them answered! The more questions you ask the better I will be at helping you understand how to use Poshmark and, how to sell on Poshmark. I am currently a top 10% seller and have earned $1,661 on 106 sales in my total time selling on Poshmark. I am not the most successful story on Poshmark but, I am extremely passionate about my closet and am consistent with sales. My number one goal for Poshmark is provide an incredible experience for my customers at a discounted rate. My second goal is to completely sell out my closet with over 230 listings at around $4,000 ( that is a major gestimate it could be more). To briefly describe Poshmark, it is an app where you can sell new or preloved clothing from your closet. In my head it is a way to make back some of the money you spent on the clothing and have some extra cash in your pocket. You can decide if you want to be a full time or part time Posher and, decide if the money is gong back into your wardrobe or are you using to save up for something special. I will of course go into more of a description and, step by step Coach Bags - Coach Chen PLTD Clutch Authenticapproach once I receive feedback on what you all would like to know. In the meantime I will be listing, answering potential customers, and hopefully selling! If you would like to join Poshmark now you can head over to the app store and find them its free. If you would like to receive $10 to shop when you first join the app use my code: HFNIS to get $10 and start you shopping!

Happy Poshing,
