As I sit here on my flight to the East Coast, where I’ll be spending the rest of 2019 and ringing in the New Year, I’m reminiscing on the incredible year I’ve had. At the end of 2018, Nara and I did a “year in review” where we highlighted our favorite moments, trends, and what we wanted to remember. I started this tradition a few years ago and kept my thoughts in a journal, but last December I published them for the first time. A couple of days ago I revisited the questionnaire by filling out the same series of questions that pertain to fashion,
Over the years I’ve accumulated a lot of items from traveling. As soon as I stepped off the plane, my mind would go into “souvenir shopping mode,” even if that meant buying pointless items that later ended up in the trash. I began revising my strategy and considered what I wanted to purchase (for myself, and for my friends and family) beforehand so I had an idea of what to look for. Then I narrowed it down to specific categories and came up with a list of things that people actually like to receive. Now, when I’m souvenir shopping, I’m not blowing my money on
My first assignment in my business communications and ethics class was to take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Initially, I thought it was odd that my professor was asking her students to take this sort of personality test. Little did I know this questionnaire would reveal so much about myself (and my character), and help me get a better understanding on why I operate and think the way that I do. Psychiatrist Carl Jung believed that we experience the world using four principal psychological functions based on conceptual theory, with one of each being dominant over the other. Extraversion or Introversion (how you focus your attention:
Now that summer is over, I have a few rituals that help get me ready for the upcoming season. Growing up on the East Coast, the day after Labor Day signaled the official start to fall (even though the calendar says it doesn’t begin until the end of September). It was a season met with foliage joyrides to the Berkshires, pumpkin picking at local farms, haunted houses and hayrides. It was also time to bring out the sweet smelling candles of apple and pumpkin spice. Here in L.A. I keep a lot of the same autumn traditions I had while I was growing up and
I’ve never been one to shy away from a wellness treatment that has the potential to enhance my overall sense of well-being. When I was given the opportunity to try an at home IV infusion from Wlnss, I jumped at the chance. In the past I’ve had a few B12 shots, but those were nothing compared to having potent vitamins enter directly through my bloodstream. These past few weeks, I’ve been doing more cardio and lifting, and on top of that, I’ve been super busy and not drinking as much water as I should. So getting a vitamin drip couldn’t have come at a better
I started reflecting on what I’ve bought (so far) this year, and of them what has made my life easier. From spending late nights searching on Amazon (because let’s be honest, Amazon has everything); to scrolling through my favorite shopping websites while looking for beauty products, denim shorts, and sandals. As I was sitting at brunch the other day, chatting with friends and the topic of new purchases came up these are the products that came to mind because they’ve given me value or happiness, or both. Here are my 10 best purchases of 2019 that I recommend to my friends over and over again.
Since I moved to L.A. I rarely get to spend Mother’s Day with my mom because she lives on the opposite side of the country. This year however, we’ll be celebrating it a week later while we’re both vacationing in Phoenix. I’ve been searching for a unique gift to bring with me; something that goes beyond the typical flowers and jewelry. While I was browsing, I came across so many great things, from budget-friendly, to splurge-worthy, (and stuff I want for myself). Hoping to help others find the perfect present, I made a gift guide with my favorites. Here are 45 unique Mother’s Day gift
