I don’t know if you guys have noticed but it’s July…JULY! 2019 has been moving quickly and as we all know time waits for no one, so with six months left to the year it’s definitely a great time to reset and refocus on your goals. I got the idea to write this post after listening to Myleik Teele’s (@myleik on Instagram) podcast about refreshing your hustle this summer. If you don’t know who Myleik is (I don’t know where you’ve been) she is the founder of Curl Box (@curlbox on Instagram) and an amazing business woman. I started listening to her podcast last year after a friend recommended it to me and I’ve found it useful as well as inspiring.
As a creative I have about 2635748 tabs open in my mind at all times. Not only do I think about a lot of things but I also overthink those things and to be honest its exhausting. I know a lot of people will agree that they are their toughest critic and I am the same, I am also a crazy ass perfectionist which means that I often stunt my own growth. If I have a vision and I feel that I can’t execute it exactly how I picture it in my mind I won’t do it, or if I did try and I didn’t like it I won’t share it. This leads to a lack of consistency and consistency is a key part of success.
Have you ever heard the saying “beauty is pain”? it sounds crazy but it’s true, the things women go through to look “beautiful” and keep up a certain standard is not easy. Let’s take waxing for example the result is smooth skin but the process hurts like a bitch and is never one I look forward to, and it can be the same with fashion. We all have a pair of shoes that look super cute on but hurt like hell after 30 minutes but if the shoe completes the outfit sometimes you just have to grin and bare it because looking cute is obviously priority right? Well you don’t always have to compromise your comfort to look stylish and these are some tips to help you do that!
Spring is finally here in NYC! The weather is breaking and the layers are slowly coming off. I haven’t been inspired for a while but I’ve been reading my magazines again and I’m super excited about the new season. I’m sure you guys already know by now that suits are trending for SS19, this wardrobe classic has been all over the runways and on street style stars everywhere. From pastels, to brights, to neutrals the power suit is here to stay, at least in my opinion.
When I was younger I had these huge plans for my life, you couldn’t tell me I wouldn’t be rich and successful by 25. Well 25 came and went and no I am not rich and to be honest I wouldn’t consider myself successful based on my standards which aren’t just about money and material things just so we’re clear. I’ve taken hella detours on my journey of life and while sometimes I wish I did some things differently I know that my experiences make me who I am.
Spring is almost here and I don’t know about you guys but I’m over winter and ready for the new season! I’m also in the process of rebuilding my wardrobe so I’ve been keeping an eye out for things that I think will compliment not only my personal style but my lifestyle as well. This blog post isn’t going to be super long its just a mini wishlist of some of the items that I’m currently interested in, a few are designer which I like to think about before spending my coins. you might find something you like for yourself and if you do everything is linked so happy shopping!
