I love finding items that have at least one dramatic element, like this white button-down peplum top. The classic button-down shirt gets an upgrade with an asymmetrical peplum detail on this pretty White House Black Market top.
Perfect for Work
This top is professional and yet it adds interest to pants and pencil skirts. It also creates a beautiful silhouette. I’m adding this top to my capsule collection for work and I couldn’t be happier with my choice.
This is a short and sweet post of my makeup essentials. I started paying attention to the items that I used every day and got rid of everything else. I have been trying different brands for each of these products for years but these are the ones I love the most.
Makeup Essentials For Work and Play
I prefer to invest in good quality, versatile items. I have a signature makeup look that I’ll wear most days, but if I want to change it up for a special occasion, these items allow me to do that. Here are my makeup essentials for work and play:
Makeup Essentials For the Weekend
If I’m just relaxing at home or running errands, I like to give my skin a break by wearing a tinted moisturizer and a lip balm. Here are my makeup essentials for the weekend:
And that’s it! I’ve learned to be creative with the items I have to create different looks. I believe a curated makeup collection speeds up the time you use to get ready and allows you to get to know all the possible ways to use your favorite products.
One of the things that I really loved about Hawaii was the weather. It was always the perfect temperature and those ocean breezes were delightful. Exploring Downtown Honolulu and eating Japanese food made for a perfect day.
I think we all experience burnout at some point in our lives and it is happening more and more often. I started feeling this way after experiencing work stress that went on for months. Recovering from a burnout is no easy task and I am still working on it. I now take burnouts seriously and am careful to stop myself when I feel like things are starting to get out of balance. Since I am not an expert, here are some resources I turn to during stressful times:
I hope these resources help you as much as they’re helping me. Sometimes, having an explanation for why you’re feeling so frustrated, tired, and disengaged is already a big step towards healing. It is much faster to prevent burnout than to recover from it. One of the things I’m doing to recover and reenergize is this blog. It refuels me in a way that I did not expect but am so grateful for. What helps you avoid a burnout? Leave me a comment, I’d love to know!
