Hi friends & Welcome back!

Welcome to shanaemily.com...in 2020..almost 2021. Yet I can't get the website to say shanaemily.com haha whatever...I figured I will get that done in 2021 haha

As most of you know I haven't blogged in a really long time. I always knew that this was something I loved but I have to do things I am passionate about and if I am not in the moment I can't do it..I wasn't inspired to blog...Making youtube videos for ThriftersAnonymous has been such fun but the other day I realized...I missed it...writing..and sharing..and this is where it ALL STARTED. So why not go back to the beginning? 

Before I go into my daily thoughts, please PLEASE let me know what you guys want to see. I am ready...ready to share and get back in my thoughts. So...Go tell me...are you there?  haha You can also email me at colorblindblog@gmail.com if that is easier!!

It is Tuesday, December 8, 2020. It is sunny but cool here in Vegas, and while there is a lot of noise...it was pretty quiet for me Sunday afternoon.

Time. Time is what has been on my mind constantly. But having the power to push through the day was always my method. Except...at 40..I find myself wanting to revert backwards...almost in denial of time...I realized over the weekend that pictures are what help me STAY in time...and if I didn't capture it...somehow it will disappear. Sad really...but they are special to me...just like pieces of clothing and furniture that reminds me of my family. That is what makes a home..to me.

Special thank you to London Mace, a friend of ours and an artist who last minute came to our neighborhood and snapped some pictures for us !!

Sampson our 13 year old lab has been having some difficulty and we may have found he has cancer. I know..he's 13...he's old..I get it. But I want him to feel just as loved as when he was 1. I'm not taking it all too well. So.

I will POWER through these thoughts and BE in the moment. EVEN if I don't capture it in a photo.

I won't let others de-value what I hold so much value in.

I will always stay true to who I am and not allow my surrounding and others to guide my day and my choices.

Working from home,I put on make up today & returning to blogging

My first year as a mom...and here we are...smack dab in the middle of a pandemic. I like many of you can be found at home trying to manage my NEW routine. Trying to WORK from home, Take care of my now 1 year old little boy, be a wife, be a good senior dog & cat mom to my almost 13 year old lab, 18 & 10 year old cats, fulfill my passions, stay fit, eat nutritious food, enjoy my life, and somehow not freak out about what could or would happen if anyone of my family or friends got sick. 

I joined a wine club so that helps. 

I somehow figured out the SECRET system for Amazon FRESH, and while my hair is usually in a high bun and most of my pants are leggings, and I AM OVER ALL OF IT, I am being realistic and taking it day by day and hour by hour. Luckily my son has brought a smile to face each day!

I am SAD every day speaking to my clients, family, and friends who have had to either close their business, let go of their employees, or work around so many that are ill. I am thankful I still have a job, but none of this is OK. 

So. Here I am. BLOGGING again after almost a year and a half of basically not writing or sharing. If you follow me on INSTAGRAM @ShanaEmily_...then you would have seen at least some of what my life has looked like over the past year and half. Edwina and I were on a  pretty strict schedule of filming once a week for Youtube on our channel ThriftersAnonymous but that has come to a complete stop AND MY Personal Fashion Fitness, & Health Youtube channel basically stopped when I was cast on A&E's Storage Wars over two years ago...



Is anyone out there? I have missed this. I started blogging when my mom passed away in 2007. 
Needless to say. I miss writing & sharing. Baby steps. I want to share all that has happened so I will. It feels good to talk about stuff, because let’s face it. WE are literally all in this together and sharing somehow makes me feel more connected to myself...it's hard to explain. 

So I am going to work on organizing this here blog and I hope you will come along for the ride. I don't know who is out there but 

hello....my name is Shana & I am addicted to thrifting & vintage. I am a first time mom to a beautiful boy named ZEV, I have 2 cats and 1 Labrador named Sampson, I lost his sister last January, another reason I just have not been able to film or write! 

I hope to bring you more of my shenanigans, thrifted outfits, my fitness & day to day loves...I don't know how often I will come on here but I WILL be back. 

I am on Instagram and seem to respond faster there than anywhere else but you can also find me at colorblindblog@gmail.com . I am going to try and respond to the many emails I have received recently and if I haven't responded please reach out again! Let me know what you guys want to see from me & please stop by and say hello! 
I hope you are all staying safe. 

This is just a start to get back to what I LOVE doing...hope to see you guys soon!

This outfit reminds me of my mom and well I love it. Here is what I wrote on Insta!

This 90's thrifted jumper had me feeling all kinds of nostalgia from our recent Comenthriftingnwith us in LA coming to our @taapproved YouTube channel soon.
See I am almost positive my mom had this EXACT jumper in her closet. Tears of joy when I tried this on and knew I had to have it.

I thrifted this ONLINE & now I'm addicted : What I Wore

Outfit Details
Dress: C/O www.swap.com (Use CODE NEWYEAR25 for 25% Off)
Heels: Nine West Ross

It is almost impossible to come on here and act like HEY look at me and this dress and goals yadda yadda when I feel as though I have been somewhat of an imposter. 
This blog was a place where I shared any and all ideas I have ever had...but somewhere in the middle I got busy and lost touch of some of the things that bring me joy!
Now don't get me wrong as you have seen some pretty incredible dreams have come true this year but I am personally taking on some new dreams and goals and I am excited to begin to share them with you here. I recently purchased a new website design for my website Thriftersanonymous.com which I purchased almost 6 years ago!!! Remember my link up I used to have on this blog>> Can't believe the ride that I have been on and will continue..but I hope to bring something new and inspiring this year along with my normal shenanigans!

My vlogs have commenced and so has the outfit photos, the gym life, the meal prep, and the dream making! You can watch my most recent videos HERE 

I have traveled, I have experienced so much and this year will be no different...but finding my purpos has meant a lot to me. 

I would love to hear from you guys...that is if any of you are out there still. Would love to here where you are from what you do and what you dream of doing this year! 

Oh and before I go lets just take a moment to talk about this dress! If you watch ThriftersAnonymous then you saw THIS video Haul where I shared a few items I got from Swap.com women men kids clothing toys shoes household items...this online thrifting store can be a HUGE problem haha but I loved every second of it.. So take advantage of the 25% off and HAVE some fun thrifting online! More to come from this haul!
