Three levels of self care – Turning over a new leaf

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.

Fall activities for peace and bonding

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.

Should I stop buying cheap clothes??

This seriously goes against everything I’ve written about looking fashionable while cheaping out. I believe my definition of “cheap” is quite skewed. I consider a top cheap if it’s under $15. I consider a pair of jeans cheap if it’s under $30. I don’t own a single pair of shoes I paid over $40 for. Meanwhile, for you, it might be entirely reasonable to spend more. Maybe I never grew out of my frugal-immigrant-living-in-a-rat-infested-basement mentality. (Yes, my family did have a rat problem back in the second basement we lived in). Just yesterday, I had a wake up call that it’s time to change my habits.
