What I Wore in NYC

PACKING STRATEGY

My packing technique seems to either be wait last minute and throw a variety of my favorite pieces into a bag or methodically try each and every outfit on so I don’t under- or over-pack and am confident my outfits will work. Guess which strategy works better? Planning ahead is definitely a lot easier for shorter trips when you typically have a clear idea of what your vacation is going to look like and consist of, as opposed to three weeks in Asia with no clue what to expect (this was me 2 years ago). SO, for our four day/three night trip to New York, my girlfriend and I planned out our outfits ahead of time – meaning tried them all on, took pictures, made sure everything fit, etc. And here they are below. My idea for this trip was to pack lightly with pieces I could take from day to night and keep to a pretty classic style theme. NYC is tricky because you’re walking A LOT, but it’s also one of the major fashionable capitals of the world (a.k.a. serious street style inspo everywhere you turn). This means bringing your comfiest A-game.

Fitting Room Find

While J. Crew has been one of my favorite stores for awhile now (it helps that they seem to always be having some sort of sale or promotion), I’ve been especially excited over what I’ve found there recently. So, I figured I’d share 🙂

As much as I rely on J. Crew for my basics (their tees are the best), I had yet to try any of their denim. Until yesterday. I’d actually been looking for a pair just like this – straight legged, cuffable, slightly distressed and cropped, classic blue wash – and found a designer pair nearly twice the price of these babies. So, obviously when I found them I swiped them right up. The fit is true to size, as well.

WHAT I WANT: target office edition

As if any of us need more of an excuse to shop ’til we drop at Target, I introduce my series: WHAT I WANT: Target Edition. Stay tuned for more on specific home decor, beauty, wellness, and style items I’m obsessing over. Sorry in advance! 😉

lemon & olive leaf candle Unless you’re new here, you know  I have to have a candle in every. single. room of my house. For the office, I love something bright and fresh to help get the creative juices flowin’. Plus, I adore the decorative, reusable tin and how its covered in lemons (reminds me of our Italian honeymoon 🙂 ).

gold paper clips If you have to have desk essentials, might as well make ’em cute right? I love the bigger style because I can use them to hold my business cards together, hotel keys (we collect them!), and even as bookmarks for magazine and journal articles I want to refer back to.

tufted blush chair I’m not a fan of traditional office chairs, so to me, this tufted blush one is just the perfect pop of color, comfort, and sophistication to accompany a sleek, clean-lined desk.

white desk I’m really loving a simple, white desk right now. This one has just enough interest with the cross detailing on the sides, a convenient drawer to keep messes hidden, and can fit pretty much into any room or nook!

woven bowl If there’s one home decor item I’ve purchased that my husband has been the MOST excited about (like literally his eyes lit up and a huge grin spread across his face) is when I brought home a woven bowl I dubbed “The Junk Bowl”. It’s a win-win for a guy who loves to throw keys, mail, business cards, etc. all over the desk and for a gal who loves tidiness at all times 😉

stainless steel scissors No one likes a shitty pair of scissors, so invest in a good pair of stainless steel ones. With the gold handle and classic design, they’re pretty enough to keep out on your desk or tucked into a cup for a practical pop of decor.

striped woven basket If you haven’t noticed by now, I love using woven baskets as storage containers (I even use one for my dog’s toys!). For my office, I have a basket for laptop chargers, phone chargers, iPad case, and other random supplies that need to be readily available, but are also not that pretty to have scattered all over the place. I also have one that I plopped my palm plant into to cover the ugly plastic container it came in.

plant stand Fake a green thumb and add some mid-century modern flare to your office with this trendy plant stand. Mix and match different sizes and group them together in a corner for some added interest and style.

striped marble coasters I like maintaining subtle themes throughout my house and these coasters kill two birds with one stone: black and white striped and marble. I don’t know about you, but I like to have about 7 different drinks (water, iced coffee, kombucha, green juice, sparkling water with lime…) with me while I’m working so coasters are a must.

gold end table Place one in a corner or buy two to center your desk in between. I find gold accented furniture to be even more versatile than wood (I have a gold bar cart and gold shelving in my office) and pairs well with any home style. Use this one for stacking notebooks, binders, magazines, papers, books, candles, etc.

leaf wall art I just LOVE these. They’re fresh, incorporate some color and nature but also maintain the black and white theme, and are so fun to either pair side by side, centered over matching tables, or would even be perfect additions to a wall gallery.

#girlboss book If you read about my obsession with coffee table books, then it should come as no surprise to you that my office is filled with them. In my office I like to keep the books empowering, inspiring and motivational, like this onethis one, and this one.

PASSION, LIFE GOALS, & ACHIEVING BALANCE

There’s a seemingly harmless question we all tend to ask kids that drives me kind of crazy. “What do you want to be when you grow up?”. Yeah, I know, you’re thinking “Uhh what’s the big deal?” or “This builds motivation, insight, goal-setting!”, and yes I agree to some extent, but hear me out. Why does someone have to be just one thing for their entire life? Kind of boring actually.

The tendency to put our careers in a nice neat little box seems to extend to other areas of our life. Part of this is due to how we as humans process and categorize information (called schematic processing) and perhaps the other part is how society tends to want to keep things very black and white. We love labels. You’re either “girly”, a “tomboy”, a “bookworm”, a “fashionista”, but God forbid you’re all of the above!

Without realizing it, I’ve always kind of embraced a variety of labels. In high school, I got straight-As and read voraciously, but I was also a cheerleader, but also kind of a rebellious teen that loved to party (sorry Mom and Dad!). I loved animals, but I also loved hanging with the boys. I had friends from various cliques that were apparently never supposed to mix (high school is just SO serious).

College came and I had to choose one direct path with one career goal. I opted for psychology because I felt it didn’t totally put me in a box and instead gave me a lot of options and flexibility depending on what I chose to do with it. Then, I decided to become a psychotherapist. And as endlessly interesting as I found it to be, it also kind of stressed me out thinking that I had to be this specific label. And shocker, I was kind of miserable when I was doing it full-time. And I felt guilty for feeling miserable because aren’t you just supposed to have one big passion in life and commit yourself fully to that?

If you really do have one big passion and are totally fulfilled just doing that, good for you, seriously. But what if you have multiple passions and interests? It’s actually pretty unrealistic, given the fact that we change SO much throughout our developmental life stages, to think that people should commit to just one specific life path. And once I realized how unfair that expectation was, I felt relieved. And I decided to do it all. So, I volunteer with animals, I work in fashion part-time, I write this blog, and I still work as a licensed therapist. I wouldn’t feel half as fulfilled if I was doing only one of those things. In fact, I’d feel pretty gypped.

Life is about balance and I’m a big believer in being well-rounded. To me, it’s a bit more authentic and a hell of a lot more interesting. After all, we only have one life to live, so why spend it just doing or “being” one thing? You really can have and be it all. #lifegoals

Currently Obsessing Over: Rose Stem Cell Cream

I’ve been using this face cream for a few months now and it’s safe to say I’m completely obsessed. If you read about my experience with eczema, then you can understand my excitement when I found a legit skincare product that does what it says without irritating my sensitive skin (I’m a fragile flower I tell ya!). It claims to:

  • repair, regenerate, and rejuvenate skin (i.e. promotes skin cell turnover, allowing newer, less-damaged and therefore “prettier – looking” skin to come through)
  • moisturize, smooth, and nourish skin (i.e. helps with dry, flaky skin and acts as an anti-ager in the sense that more moisturized = less wrinkles)
  • brighten and tone (if you have hyperpigmentation you know how important this feature is in a product!)
  • plump, firm, and illuminate complexion (i.e. that fresh-faced, dewy look that’s all of the rage right now)
  • improve fine-lines, wrinkles, and dullness (i.e. promotes healthier- and younger-looking skin)

Not convinced it could possibly do all of this? I’ve had two facials since using the moisturizer and both aestheticians commented on my “flawless” skin and stated I “really didn’t need to get facials”. Me, the girl who has a history of red, sensitive, dry and oily, flaky and eczema-ridden skin?! Since this is the only new product I’ve added to my skincare rotation, I have to give all of the credit to the rose stem cell cream. It’s my last step in my evening skincare routine and when I wake up in the morning my skin really does feel soft, supple, and still moisturized (like, I don’t even want to wash my face again because it feels so clean and hydrated already). I also use it in the morning after my toner and before spf. (Tip: Allow for a minute or two between each product you’re using in your routine to fully absorb and penetrate your skin before adding the next one on.)

Okay, but let’s talk about the elephant in the room here. This stuff is made from freaking roses. Literally a bouquet of them. Every girl should be swooning right now. Just me? Fine, but still how cool/romantic/innovative is that?! And you can smell the roses as soon as you open the jar. And it’s freaking pink! Not going to lie, it just kind of adds a fun, special, luxurious feel to an otherwise boring, do-I-really-have-to-do-all-of-this routine. Plus, a little goes a long way. I use one little finger swipe for my entire face, neck, and chest (DON’T FORGET YOUR CHEST DURING YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE!).

So, there you have it. My newest, must-have beauty product. And no, this definitely isn’t sponsored (not that cool, yet 😉 ) and no, I don’t even know who the heck Peter Thomas Roth is. I just honestly love this face cream! And if you do try it out, please let me know how you like it!

I Broke Up With Social Media & Here’s What Happened

palm print sweater: here (and obsessed!) // denim shorts: here (run big, size down)

MY RELATIONSHIP WITH SOCIAL MEDIA

In order to understand the breakup, you first need to understand my relationship with social media because it was a close/tight/committed/dependent one. Like, I could spend aaaaallllllll afternoon, evening and night mindlessly scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest (I really had all bases covered). It was the first thing I attended to in the morning and the last thing I spent doing at night. It made me late to work, skip skincare and makeup routines, forego scheduled gym sessions, miss out on quality time with friends and family, and my neck wrinkles real pronounced (spending hours with your chin tucked down is not exactly conducive to great posture and youthful looking skin). Couldn’t sleep in the middle of the night? No worries! I’d grab my phone and scroll through Instagram for two hours aka it was really messing with my sleep hygiene. My beloved books and magazines gathered dust on their shelves because why enrich my mind with worthwhile literature when I could check out the avocado toast my best friend’s sister’s college roommate was eating? It really was a pathetic relationship. Maybe the worst one I’ve ever had (and I’ve had some doozies!).

THE BREAKUP

Obviously, it was time to breakup. I needed my freedom, hobbies, and health back. So I cut things off with social media on a random Monday night; I deleted my Twitter and Facebook apps and refused to even consider clicking on the cute little Instagram and Pinterest apps in my phone (Instagram and Pinterest are were my favorite of the bunch, making it harder to completely cut those out of my life). And here’s what happened:

I FOUND MORE TIME

Yes, I found the answer to finding more of that allusive “time” as in “ahh if only there was more time in the day!”. (Rearrange your priorities and tweak your schedule and I promise you’ll find it, too.) For instance, instead of spending the first 30 minutes of being awake laying in bed and checking up on what I could have possibly missed out on during the middle of night (hint: nothing), I get right out of bed and now have ample time to walk my dog, make breakfast and coffee, and put on some makeup. Shoot, I even have time to do my hair some mornings now. Even if you spend 5-10 minutes on social media here and there, it can really add up without realizing it, taking away chunks of time that could be spent doing something more relaxing, productive, fun, (actually) social, etc.

I READ MORE OF EVERYTHING

News articles, psychology journals, fashion magazines, fiction novels and self-help books – you name it, I’ve been reading it. Since I can remember, I’ve always been a voracious reader and consider it one of my very favorite hobbies (next to shopping, of course). Sadly, my obsessive relationship with social media took that away from me, BUT I’m proud to say I’m back to my bookworm ways.

I STAY IN THE MOMENT

When you don’t have your phone to use as a mindless distraction, you’re forced into the moment and therefore can be more present. Have you ever been out to lunch with someone who was on their phone the entire time, not really engaging in conversation or even bothering to look at you? I have, and it doesn’t feel great, but what does feel great is valuing the here and now, your relationships, and actual face time with people (or animals, whatevs 😉 ).

I BECAME DAMN PRODUCTIVE

At work, at home, on the weekends, my productivity is on the rise. This obviously comes easier with more time found in the day, but I think once you start being a little productive, it’s easier to become more and more so. Ya know the whole “an object in motion stays in motion” thing totally applies here. So, instead of going back to sit on the couch to check every nook and cranny of my social media accounts after I’m done say, vacuuming, now, because I don’t have that option, I might go on to do laundry, cook a healthy meal, water the plants, go to the gym (okay, maybe not there quite yet, but you get the point). 

I COMMUNICATE MORE INTENTIONALLY

Sure, Facebook can be great at keeping up with your Great Aunt in Albuquerque, but does it really help foster connections with our loved ones? Since I gave it up, I’ve found myself using my phone more for what it’s original intended use was – actually calling or even texting someone directly to see how their vacation was, what their plans are for the weekend, and to share a bit of what’s going on in my life. I think depending on social media to keep us connected with others creates a false sense of being social, having a support system, and really knowing your friends and family. It only provides a snapshot and doesn’t take the place of having a fulfilling and direct conversation or visit with someone.

I STOPPED COMPARING

You know what happens when you stop comparing your body, sense of style, vacations, relationships, home, and how you’re spending your Friday night to everyone else? You start living for and doing things for you and give yourself a greater chance at really being content with who you are and where you’re at. Now, instead of feeling bad about why I’m not out to eat at the trendy sushi restaurant in the same cute outfit as my friend’s cousin is, I focus on myself and what I actually want to be wearing, feeling, and doing. And damn, it feels good to be selfish.

WE’RE STILL FRIENDS

So after I didn’t go near any social media for quite some time, I started to give more thought into how I wanted to handle it all going forward. I realized this would require shifting my perspective and intentionally scheduling out times to use it if I wanted to, not just because I was in an out of control, habit with it. If I do have the desire to share a picture or scope out what everyone is up to, I set a purposeful intention for it, do it for a very limited amount of time, and be done with it. And you know what I’ve noticed? The less I do it, the less I want to or even think to. After all, who really stays that close to an ex after a breakup?

Dealing With Stress & Grounding Yourself

crochet top: heredifferent color & more sizes // shorts: on sale heresimilar here

If you read my post on anxiety and either couldn’t totally relate or are looking for more coping skills that can be applied to everyday stress, this one’s for you. Today we’re talking all about grounding yourself and what I especially love about this technique is that pretty much anyone can use it and find it helpful. On the verge of a panic attack? Try grounding yourself. Constantly stressed over office politics? Ground yourself. Prepping for an interview? You guessed it – ground yourself!

WHAT IT IS

When we’re anxious, stressed, panicked, etc., it often feels like we are having an out-of-body experience, being flooded by our emotions and thoughts, and generally just feel really overwhelmed and maybe even helpless. This makes reaching a logical, timely and effective solution almost impossible. This is when the idea of “grounding” comes in. It’s a technique to pull yourself back to Planet Earth, shut out the overwhelming thoughts and feelings, and get back to a place where you can effectively cope and deal with whatever it is that’s going on.

HOW TO DO IT

Just like mindful breathing, this grounding technique can be used anywhere and at anytime without bringing attention to yourself. This is because you can do it all in your head (although feel free to do it out loud if you find it more effective 😉 or if writing is your thing, feel free to jot it all down into your favorite notebook. Let’s begin:

  • If doing this in a sitting or standing position, make sure both feet are placed firmly on the ground. If you’re in a laying position, make sure you’re laying flat on your back with your arms placed gently by your side and legs out in front of you.
  • Take a couple of slow, deep breaths and start to take notice of your surroundings, keeping your five senses in mind.
  • Note five things you see around you. This could be the color of the walls, a pencil on the desk, a flower in bloom, etc.
  • Note four things you can touch. The texture of the chair you’re sitting on, the softness of the pillow you’re resting on, your hair, a hard surface, etc.
  • Note three things you can hear. I like to focus on nature if possible for this one: the wind blowing, birds chirping, waves crashing, but cars honking, the murmur of people talking, or a TV on in the background works too.
  • Note two things you can smell. Maybe it’s food, a candle or soap dish nearby, a pencil or how being outside (if applicable) smells.
  • Note one thing you can taste. What does the inside of your mouth taste like? Coffee? Gum? A sandwich from lunch?

And voila! Your flooding thoughts have hopefully dissipated, you’re feeling calmer and less triggered, and out of your head and therefore more in control.

WHY IT WORKS

Our emotions/feelings, thoughts, and behaviors are all directly linked. So, when our thoughts are running rampant and taking on an overall negative tone, our feelings follow suit. This technique stops this sort of cause-and-effect from happening, puts us (our logical, non-emotionally-reactive side) back in control, and therefore leads to healthier thought patterns and overall improved mood. In moments of anxiety or stress, it’s important to stay present in order to be able to stay focused on effectively coping with the situation at hand. By being grounded, you’re being present.

Eczema: The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

sweater: here & here // fedora: here // gold disc necklace: similar here & on sale!

You may be wondering how there is any good associated with eczema, and we’ll get to that, but first, the bad and the ugly. The bad is an insatiable itchiness, an aggravating tingly-ness, and feeling like I’m covered in needles with an overwhelming urge to crawl out of my skin. Fun, right? And the ugly is an awful, angry pink, red, and purple (sounds pretty, but I can assure you it’s not), rash that likes to appear all over my eyelids and down my nose, around my wrists and inside of my elbows, and smack dab in the middle of my thighs. Oh, and also all over my stomach. Pretty awesome, huh? And to make matters worse, it’s not just a bright, juicy rash, but a super dry and obviously flakey one. I do have photographic evidence of this, but it might traumatize you so much that you won’t dare come back to my blog, so I’ll spare you. Ha.

Now you’re probably really wondering where the good is in all of this grossness, and I promise we’ll get to that, but let’s talk about what eczema is. You’ve probably heard of it before – Kim Kardashian oddly seems to be an ambassador for it?, but maybe you’re not exactly sure what it is. Well it’s pretty simple actually and also frustratingly broad. Eczema is group of medical conditions that result in a skin rash. Yep, that’s it. A skin rash. Pretty frustrating when you consider how widespread the triggers and treatments for rashes really are. And bonus, it’s common to also have asthma and other allergies if you have eczema. And yes, I am one of the lucky ones to have all of the above. If you’d like to go further down the eczema rabbit hole, The National Eczma Association has a ton of interesting (and boring) information on their site.

And now, the good. Since being diagnosed with eczema after years of thinking I was maybe experiencing random bouts of heat rashes, but really having no idea what the f*ck was going on, I do know what’s going on now and it forces me to take damn good care of my skin. And here’s how I do just that:

1. INVEST IN GOOD PRODUCTS

Unfortunately, gone are the days of buying sickeningly sweet body lotions, cheap body sprays, and whatever-is-on-sale-at-the-drugstore face washes. Now, I’m forced to do a little more research into the products I’m buying to see how clean and natural the ingredients really are, if they’re fragrant-free and designed for sensitive skin, and if they are good quality. Interestingly enough, I have had horrible reactions with a Neutrogena face wash branded for sensitive skin, but have had great luck with higher quality products from Sephora and Nordstrom (go figure!). However, this doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. Organic, cold-pressed oils like jojoba and rosehip have worked really well with my skin, are super affordable, and full of antioxidants, vitamins, and essential fatty acids.


2. TRY OUT SAMPLES

Now before I blow half of my paycheck on fancy skincare and beauty products (shh, don’t tell my husband), I always try samples first. This is a good tip for anyone to ensure you like what you’re about to buy, but essential for someone who suffers from eczema or even just sensitive skin. Nordstrom and Sephora are great about giving you free samples of really any of their products, magazines are chock full of foundation and fragrance swatches, and most department stores will send you free, mini-products of your choice with a beauty purchase. When I go to my dermatologist, I grab two handfuls out of the sample skincare bowl. #noshame

3. COMMIT TO A SKINCARE REGIME

Aside from crappy products waging war on my skin, wearing makeup for too long and not properly washing and moisturizing is a recipe for an eczema outbreak. Therefore, developing and actually following through on an AM and PM skincare routine is essential. For me, this involves a designated makeup remover, balancing face wash, hydrating toner, anti-aging eye cream, and all-in-one face moisturizer. Oh, and of course, sunscreen, because no one likes rashy and sunburnt skin.

4. LET SKIN BREATH

If I sense an outbreak developing on my face, I have to forego makeup unless I want a full-fledged, weeks-long disaster on my hands. Knowing that I have to regularly go without makeup is great motivation for staying committed to my skincare routine and in turn, helps my makeup sit much better on my skin when I do wear it.

5. STAY HYDRATED & MOISTURIZED

Although there really is no known cause for eczema, there is a connection with dehydrated and dry skin. So, I make sure I’m keeping dry skin away in two ways: chugging tons of water literally all day everyday and slathering lotion all over my body as soon as I get out of the shower every morning (tip: applying lotion while your skin is still wet helps really lock in the moisture).

6. EXERCISE & EAT CLEAN

We all know good health starts from within and skincare really is a practice in it. After all, our skin is our body’s largest organ (kinda weird to think about?), so it’s important to take extra good care of it. For me, this looks like daily walks with my dog, weekly yoga and occasional strength-training classes, as well as eating tons of veggies, lean proteins (I don’t touch red meat.), and healthy fats (avocados, coconut oil, nut butters, etc.). I do really notice a difference in my skin when I’m eating super healthy and conversely, notice almost immediate irritation and itchiness after eating a lot of junk (especially cheese, for some sad, sad reason).

Obviously, what works for me may not work for you and vice versa, because eczema, allergies, and skin sensitivities affect everyone differently, but I’m hoping my tips can be tailored to fit your needs. I’d also LOVE to hear how you take care of your skin and any experience with eczema you might have!
