Well, well, well… look who got herself back into blogging. Ranting and raving, sharing and bragging, all the while begging and pleading with the world “Read my stuff, make me feel good about myself!” Okay, maybe not that last part, but at least ranting, sharing, bragging, learning…
…it’s been a while. Moving from fashion blogging (which got expensive, frustrating, and competitive) to just blogging in general, (which is much more freeing and self-directed), while trying to figure out what the heck just happened in these last 29 years of life and where the next 29 will lead…
Piece of Clareity is a brutally honest, sarcastic take on life, learning and navigating the answer to that super annoying question:
“What are you doing with your life these days?”
Thank you, Saturn’s Return, (it’s a thing!) if you are experiencing a “beyond-quarter-life-ohmygoodnessimalmostthirty / not quite mid-life crisis” you can relate. The fear of the unknown, the doubt, the frustration, the constant existential questioning…
Stick around- maybe inspiration will strike
Reading and researching is a great part of learning and helping figure out who you are, where you are going and what steps you probably should take next. With Piece of Clareity, I’m being vocal- I’m documenting this “exploratory/take time for yourself to figure out yourself” phase. If I don’t answer some of the existential questioning, then clearly I failed philosophy in college… (I got a C+ instead). You’re going to find that you’re not alone in life, and in the process of self-discovery.
Follow along for a sarcastic commentary about this game of life.
In case you failed spelling in the 4th grade, or rely heavily on auto correct, you would notice that Clareity was misspelled. My name is Clare- and this lil’ blog is a piece of the interwebz that will provide a comedic relief in today’s serious, “you must know what you are doing at all times” world. Know that I’m still learning, but my love for learning is the reason I’m sharing things as I discover them.
Don’t know what you are doing? Me either.
If you are still reading- congrats! You get it. You find humor in sarcasm, poking fun of oneself, and the importance of living life in a light-hearted manner. Serious readers, need not apply- Piece of Clareity will be a “fun take on life, learning and the pursuit of self-discovery” space.

I used to blog. Actually, I used to fashion blog. And then I was pregnant, felt too pregnant to be cute to continue to fashion blog. Plus, I was running out of steam. Fashion blogging was getting too competitive and expensive. (And honestly, my apartment’s closet was not big enough, and my day job did not pay nearly enough to keep up with an evolving closet…) Writing about outfits was beginning to be a chore, (and figuring out what to wear in the morning was never fun either…) writing about life was more fun. When something becomes a chore, time to move on.
I’ve fully accepted Saturn’s return, and the idea to prove to the Mr. that I’m not crazy, and that I CAN stick with something consistently for more than 5 minutes.
(Ooo look! Something shiny!….be right back….)
This time around I am trusting that crazy feeling inside that says “go and do it…something BIG will come from it!” Wine, cooking, eating, working out, decorating my life planner, interior designing, laughing about that ever hilariously false “work-life balance” (if you have a good w-l balance, let me know, I need your job!) being a mama, the list goes on. This time I have material, I have the freedom (cause fashion isn’t the main focus of P.o.C!)
In Westchester County, NY, there’s tons of things to keep anyone occupied, which help usher along through this exploratory phase of life, thus being the muse of this blogosphere… Let’s explore together just exactly who we are, what our styles/tastes/preferences evolved into (if they have since graduating college…fingers crossed…) and what we should REALLY be doing with our lives…
Go grab yourself a glass (or goblet) of your favorite wine (or check out some of my favorite wines here), and stick around.
You’re in for a sarcastic treat.
And maybe even a personal self-discovery!
