Hey ya'll! I have another AMAZING Amazon find to share! As I've mentioned before I've been slowly trying to add to my winter/fall wardrobe. It's pretty warm in Austin most of the year, so I do find myself buying summer clothes way more frequently. But, this winter season has been probably the coldest I've experienced in Texas, so I've been intentionally trying to add some great pieces to wear in the colder months.
I can't believe I found this long sleeve bodysuit on Amazon. I feel like buying clothes on Amazon can be hit and miss and I was a little worried to buy a bodysuit since you really need those to fit in the right way. But, this bodysuit COMPLETELY exceeded my expectations.
The fabric is so soft, very fitting, the bodysuit doesn't sag at your butt (haha), AND it's under $20! I bought mine in the colors A2 Burgundy and A02 White, but I think I might buy one or two more! The quality really is that great. And, I love wearing tight long-sleeves in the cold! Just keeps you super snug!
This bodysuit is definitely something you want to wear with a high-waisted...more
I've been wearing my glasses as of late because I recently found out that my eye is allergic to my contact lenses! I'd been having issues with my right eye for months and I had no idea that it was my contacts triggering the problem. Luckily, once my eye is back to normal, I can switch contact lens brands which should resolve the issue!
Anyway, I've been feeling a bit insecure because of wearing glasses, no eye makeup, and right before this I'd been having a ton of breakouts. Of course when it rains it pours, right?
But the other day, when I was in my thoughts, I wondered... why DON'T I feel as "cute" in glasses than when I'm not? I bought some really cute frames a couple years ago, and I typically do wear my glasses on occasion, but NEVER when I'm going out on a date or dressing up.
And upon asking myself this, I realized that all the cute outfits and looks that I see on my Pinterest page or my Instagram feed, are rarely accompanied with glasses. And so, somewhere along the way, I think I just always felt that wearing glasses was reserved for those days when...more
I felt compelled to write on this topic because the other day I realized that for the first time since I graduated college six years ago, I finally feel at peace with where I am in my career. Throughout most of my twenties, I felt quite the opposite from this... I felt lost.
It felt like I was constantly searching for something that couldn’t possibly exist. Job after job, company after company, yet each time I’d always find that the job was so WRONG for me. All of these negative experiences lead me to believing this “story”, which I thought was very real and believed with every fiber of my being. Nonetheless, it was a story that my mind had written as our minds like to do.
The story was that I couldn’t ever find a job that wasn’t soul crushing or anxiety provoking, that would give me balance (boundaries separating work from down-time), AND decent pay. You may have a similar story, re-playing in your head that your mind has created based on some negative life experiences. Stories like, “You can’t quit your job; you won’t be able to survive if you leave.” Or “If you...more
