Life Lately and Versona

Hi Friends!! 

I'm Back!! I have missed you all so I wanted to give you an update on life lately. 

Life has been a little crazy.  As some of you know I have an autoimmune disease called RA.  Back in the fall they put me on a new medicine called methotrexate incase you aren't familiar it is a chemotherapy drug. They have since increased my dosage three times now. February was the last time they increased the dosage.  In mid March I started having reactions to the drug.... and was miserable.  They increased my Folic Acid twice to balance the methotrexate to stop the reactions.  Working full time plus adjusting to these meds and their reactions has been exhausting.  I finally started feeling better and started to write this post for y'all... then I got sick! I was so sick for about two weeks.  Whatever it was eventually turned into a sinus infection.  Everything is always worse when you deal with auto immune too.   One reason being I have to skip both my RA meds (Methotrexate and Enbrel)  that make my joints feel better when I'm sick.  So it's this never ending cycle or at least that's how it feel! I rested a lot and chose to take a break from blogging and slow down on Instagram while I got my health back to my normal. 

Back before all this I visited my friends at my local Versona to see their latest collection! I had a blast trying it all on and styling these fun pieces.  I shared a couple photos on Instagram awhile ago, but thought I would share some more today! I linked all the items that are still in stock online for you! 

I loved the way this mock neck dress fit and this blazer was perfect! 
I paired this look with a simple heel

This leather jacket was amazing! 

I was in love with this palm print dress too! 

This dress was so pretty and I loved the ruffle at the bottom.

This tee was too cute and comfy! Check out the shoes too! 

Thanks for stopping by today and for understanding my need to take a break! Love y'all lots and I have so much planned for the up coming weeks! 

XOXO
Love Leigh

  9. Girl, my heart breaks for you hearing about all your health challenges. I don't have an auto-immune disease, but I have a digestive disease that sends me into those constant sick cycles as well, and it's absolutely miserable. I'm hoping that you get a respite soon to just rest and heal. I love love Versona! I've gotten some of my favorite pieces from my local store. The ones you picked out are super cute too!
