January and February have been tough and draining for not only me, but many people in my life too. Lately, I’ve been reflecting a lot on something I learned while working in a “high end” *cue eyeroll* environment. At that time, I had a self-esteem issues going on. And that environment wasn’t always helpful, but it did teach me one very important thing about confidence.
Resolutions and bucket list items are great, but they can get overwhelming. I’m sure we’ve all made a ton of resolutions that we didn’t end up keeping. This week, I’ll be sharing a few keys in setting yourself up for success in your resolutions.
Hi everyone! I know it’s rare for me to do a non-fashion post at the beginning of the month, but stick around to the end and you’ll see why. Anyways, I feel that self care isn’t internalized nearly enough. We can all talk about eating healthier, getting more sleep, more me-time, and less overthinking…but how many of us actually follow through on it? This week, I’ll be talking about self-care in three levels: the body, mind, and spirit.
There’s no better season than fall to begin reflecting on the year. It’s a good time to start asking yourself who has really been there for you. It’s a good time to also look deep within yourself and begin unrooting any destructive thoughts that have been festering over the year. This week, I’ll be sharing some simple activities that have been helping me feel at peace and also bond with loved ones.
Seasonal mood swings are like period cramps for me. I feel them oncoming and I’m like “here they are again.” Many people I know love the transition of summer to fall. But some of my close friends and I are more prone to feeling anxious, sad, or angry over things that normally wouldn’t affect us. So this week, I’ll be sharing three strategies that have been helping me through the transition.
The anarchist in me is ranting about how the purpose of dress codes is to keep all workers the same. We’re all equally disposable and replaceable. There is nothing special about us as individuals, so we should just keep our heads down and work. However, the realist in me recognizes that workplace culture can make or break a company. And dress codes are a part of that culture. This week, I’ve come up with several tips to not feel like a robot in dress code.
So I guess my “emotional person’s guide” is a series now. Perhaps you’re emotional like me (do you cry no matter how many times you’ve seen Big Hero 6? Is your art heavily influenced by your emotional state? Do animal rescue videos make you uncontrollably tearful from happiness?) Or maybe you don’t experience extreme emotional highs and lows. No matter who you are, I hope this series will become something you can relate to and look forward to reading!
If there was one word that describes me, it would be “duality”. I often feel like my life is cinematic reel of highs and lows. And the month of July had been riddled with them. It was difficult picking four outfits that really represented July since I’ve been all over the place with work, weekend trips, and casual days. So in the theme of duality, I’ve chosen two formal outfits and two casual ones.
Lately, relationship talk has been floating around in my circles. Despite being open about mental health and things I’ve learned in life, I’ve never talked about relationships before.
It’s no secret that I’m an avid shoe lover. Of course, I play the game where I guess what a person is like based on their shoes. Here are more of my observations. Give part 1 a read if you haven’t seen it yet!
