take your mama out all night

This post is dedicated to my mama. No, she didn’t die. She’s just really, really awesome. I’ll get to why in a minute.

Over the past few weeks, I have made some adjustments to the layout of my blog. These changes have been so subtle that many of you probably haven’t noticed. However, if you are the avid fans that I hope you are, and you did notice, then good for you! You get five gold stars. ;-)))

The reason why I give mention to the layout is because one of the modifications that I did make was to the top menu bar. I decided to get rid of it when I decided to close the (virtual) doors to the Hello, Scarlett Store. The store was launched around the same time that I started up this blog. In a way, I’ve always associated the store with my blog. Yet, over the past few months Canada Post has significantly raised their prices twice, coupled with a lack of time to photograph and post my merchandise, and eBayers who would lowball my items and subsequently not pay for them, I’ve had a declining interest in keeping the store open. That being said, if it wasn’t for my mama, the store would never have been as successful as it was. Each month I came out on top, and her items were always my best sellers. She made the Hello, Scarlett Store what it was, I merely put the finishing touches on it.

It felt awful to tell my mum that I would be closing down the store, but like any good mother, she understood why. However, this is not the end. I already have a pop-up shop in the works, and a revamped HS Store will be coming soon on Etsy. The new store will mostly feature handmade items with some leftover and vintage clothing from my original business.

So, dear readers, here is my latest prairie fashion video. It has many of the clothes that were once featured in the store, and many of which were supplied by my precious mama. Get ready!

  1. Isn’t it amazing how supportive our mother’s can be and how they always stand by us and bring the best out in us no matter what. I wish you much luck on your pop up store and all your endeavors. :)

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every waking and spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
