Life Lately

A read on the going’s on in my life lately. 


Taking a page out of my girl Jesse’s Life Lately posts and sharing what’s been happening in this neck of the woods as of late. 


I started a new job in May for a PR agency and have been really enjoying my time there. It’s a work-from-home position (thank goodness) and I’ve had the opportunity to work with some great people and clients. It’s been a while since I’ve felt fulfilled by a job. I feel like I’m really making a difference and getting my clients out there as thought leaders via broadcast and podcast interviews, as well as getting them in some top-tier publications (like WebMD, HuffPost, and Forbes, to name a few). It’s also really nice to feel appreciated, and as Words of Affirmation is my Love Language, it’s nice to get recognized among my peers. 


I recently made a comeback to the blog and I’m really happy with my decision. I’ve been running Fabulously Average for 12 years now and was having a hard time deciding to let it go, but I came to my senses and am determined to continue to create for my little space on the internet. 

My hope is to blog at least once a week and send out a newsletter once a month. I think that’s an attainable goal, I just have to plan ahead. 

But I am creating daily on TikTok sharing get ready with me videos as I share the thought process around what I wear, so you should follow me there! 


I recently stayed in the city for a few days with the fella to celebrate our anniversary. It was nice to get away and play tourist. We got to visit our favorite restaurants and even snuck in a thrift trip! I may share the places we hit in a separate blog post, but let’s see if that actually happens. 

We’re hoping to hit up Great Wolf Lodge later this year, perhaps in November or early December, but no definite plans have been made yet. We went in 2021 and the kids had a blast. Fingers crossed!


If you’ve been following me on social media, then you’ve noticed my OBSESSION with Free People. I absolutely love the brand as it fits my aesthetic to a T. I plan on sharing a post here soon about a few pieces I own and am loving, but here’s what I’ve got my eye on:

  • Free People Jacket – I’ve had this jacket on my list for a while now and finally found it on the Nordstrom Rack site for a semi-affordable price. I really want to pull the trigger on it.
  • Dr. Martens Booties – How freaking cute are they! And the color is so fun!
  • Dressed In Lala Maxi – I’ve had my eye on this dress for a while now but I just can’t justify the price. I’m hoping it goes on sale so that I can snag her up. This is another dress from the brand that I REALLY want. 


If you’re new around here – Hi, I’m Joanne, and living with bipolar 2 disorder. When it comes to my mental health (and illness), I take things pretty seriously. I’ve been good about taking my medication (I fell off the wagon a few months ago and that didn’t bode too well) and getting in my daily physical activity to keep things running on all cylinders. I attend Orange Theory roughly 4 to 5 times a week during the wee hours of the morning, and love getting my sweat on with a group of random strangers, LOL! 

Anyway, as always, I appreciate y’all for following along, stopping by this blog, and connecting with me on social media. It’s nice to be back in the space, I missed it. 

Until next time!
