Personal Day #1

Hello again! And so soon?

So let’s get real right now. One of my biggest personal issues is that I almost never take time for myself and do things that I enjoy. During the week I’m at work for 10 hours a day and when I come home I’m dead tired. During the weekends, I’m usually so lazy that I just stay in bed all day and laze around. I’m even too lazy to get food- I order delivery almost EVERY weekend. It’s so unhealthy and wasteful!

Another big part of the problem is- and this is where it gets really real- I cannot be alone without my boyfriend. Let’s face it. I’m one of those people who are attached to people. I can’t stand to be alone, it scares me and it is super uncomfortable. We have been spending weekends apart and at first, I was NOT having it. I would always freak out about the time apart and I wouldn’t know why. I mean, it was only for two days, maximum. And if I’m not with him, I’m with some other friends.  I literally have the hardest time being alone, ever.

This got me thinking, what are the things that I do enjoy to do by myself? I had to lay down at night and figure out how I was going to calm down and remember all of the things I used to do by myself that I enjoyed. Last night I went to bed promising myself that tomorrow, I will have a great, productive day where I will get dressed up, go out and spend some quality time with myself!'
And that’s exactly what I did.
Immediately when I woke up I watched some YouTube. Just some of my favorite channels to get some inspiration. I find that doing something immediately after you wake up will help you wake up even more because you are telling your mind “hey, it’s time to get up now!” instead of just hitting the snooze button over and over again and trying to grab the last few minutes of sleep. I ended up watching a cool video by @krissygrotez where she is doing a bunch of cute hairstyles and that’s when I really got motivated to get up and get dressed.

Anyways, let’s get started  ♡

Three Winter Outfits

Hello lovelies !

I've decided to change the layout and format of my blog posts because I want to step up my game in the internet world. Of course, that would require me actually getting on the internet every once in a while but I've been trying!

Winter is in full force here, although there are some nice bright days. My problem with winter is how do I balance layers and still show off some skin and look cute? My answer to this problem is crop tops. I bought a lot of long sleeved crop tops and pair them with cute patterned skirts. I try to avoid black during the winter as well because it is my immediate "go to" color when its cold outside, but I don't want to wear black every day! So I try to add bright colors with a few black items.

Here are some outfits that I put together. Enjoy!
