Can it be fixed?

Why is it that no matter how much you organize an area up, it always seems to get messy? Spending hours cleaning, messy in half that time. Makes no sense. 

I can say that this always happens to me after I clean up my area at work. Give it a day or 2 and BAM! unorganized. I want to personalize my area completely and bring things from home to help customize. But before I can tackle this project, I need to tackle the almost impossible task of all. MY ROOM. 

Conclusion is I have way too many things. I don’t even have room for some of the stuff that I even own. So many clothes, so many shoes, so many crafting supplies. Plus, I got my brand new Silhouette Cameo in the mail, where the hell is my new baby going to be placed. Not to mention, I can’t even use it yet since my laptop decided to break, so I have to wait. I do want to get rid of my night table because I barely use it and stuff is continuing to pile on top of it. I want to buy a desk to put where the night table is at and hook up the cameo near it. But first I have to figure out what I’m keeping, shredding or getting rid of. 

Thank god for Poshmark, because I can sell my clothes, accessories and shoes there. 

Thank god for Etsy, because I can make crafty pieces, such as snail mail kits, jewelry, and other customized items for the home, celebrations, etc. 

So the task on hand is that this weekend, my room is the main task. You’ll be surprised at how many things, I actually have. Be forewarned, there was a year where I was at Michael’s every few days buying stuff. This way you have to know, I have lots of stuff. 

Karina Kouture is now open!


As I told you all before, I was going to be open to an etsy shop. 

My shop is filled with customized items to meet your every needs. If I don’t have it, I’ll do my best to create it just for you.

I’ll be adding more items to it as days go by. I’m constantly making new things everyday. 



As a shopaholic, I can tell you I love to shop. I’m also cheap as hell and don’t like to pay excess money on pieces that are not worth as much. That goes for pieces, I won’t be using as much in the first place. I won’t paying $50 for a necklace that I’ll only wear on one occasion. I hope I’m not the only one. I find necklaces that are in the high prices and they don’t even look quality.

So I decided to open up a shop on etsy and sell jewelry pieces for a reasonable prices. I don’t have anything up yet because I want to have a substantial amount of pieces before I put them up.
I believe that the thought of carefully putting the pieces together would be nice. I want to put a nice touch to it. I want to also create custom pieces for people. They can create wonderful gifts.

The name came about when I was at work and I was trying to figure out what to name my shop. It was going to be CreateBrilliantly but I wasn’t sure. Me and my two of my coworkers were coming up with names. One of which has their own shop. Then one of them, the guy, came up with KarinaKouture and it just stuck with me. I like it. It’s different to me and it gives a personal touch because my name is in it. I want all my pieces to come from the heart like I said before. I’ll put my link up once the pieces are up so everyone could see.

❤ Karina

Keeping restraint

Do you know how hard it is to keep restraint and not spend money? So many sales happening after pay day, so many cute jewelry pieces and clothing. I would say shoes but I can admit I have too many that I don’t wear to begin with so there’s no point. 

I need to save money up since I’m going on vacation next year and birthdays are coming up and baby showers. 

I have been selling clothes, handbags, shoes, jewelry, etc that I don’t wear anymore or have never worn on Poshmark and Pose. Money that I have made on Poshmark, is still in the app so I haven’t used it. 

I’m also thinking about opening an Etsy shop because I love anything crafty and make DIYs and crafty projects, so I’d love to share them at an affordable price. I’m excited about that.
