Hope everyone had a positive and productive week! I had a great week. I felt like I found a healthy balance of work, family and me time. SHINE! Not sure how that happened exactly, but I am very happy about it and proud of myself. Now time to straight up CHILLLLLLL! Can’t wait.
I am always telling y’all to stop comparing yourselves to others. I truly believe that, but it’s so hard, right?? I struggle with it too sometimes. It’s especially difficult on social media. The purpose of social media is to follow and look at other people’s lives. We are just asking ourselves to compare. No matter what anyone else is doing or saying, you have to follow your passion. Don’t let others distract you from following your dreams!! Your passions and ideas are yours and that’s what makes them unique and special.
Taking care of my skin is so therapeutic. It can be a form of meditation for me. At the beginning of quarantine, I quickly had to come up with an alternative to going out to get facials. I created My Quickie Facial! Here are the steps and products I use with shoppable links! I only do this once a week. If you want to see my step-by-step how-to visit my IGTV. This is a great facial to do at night. I feel so clean and relaxed when I get into bed.
I don’t know exactly what it is, but I am working on myself more than ever. I’mnot sure if it’s my age, becoming a mom, being married for 5 years, quarantine or just all of it, but I am on the mission to be the happiest, most productive and calm I can be. Last week, I talked to Kelsey Murphy, Business and Life Coach, on my podcast, WITH WHIT and she helped me put into words everything I was feeling, thinking and wanting to get better at. Isn’t it the best when you can connect to someone who speaks your language?
Weekend time!!! My sister and her husband were here visiting for a few weeks. I felt like I was on vacation the whole time. Felt so lucky to be able to spend so much time with them. Now, I am getting back to my normal routine. It was a little tough getting back into work mode, but I am thankful to always find purpose in my work. It always makes me feel so good to get things done! I feel so accomplished. I hope y’all had a good and productive week as well!
I hope you all had a great week and have something special planned for this weekend! If there is one thing I have learned in quarantine, it is that we need to treat ourselves every now and then. Whether it be with your favorite dessert, cocktail, expensive take out, fun shoes you’ve been eyeing for months, house plants…whatever!! A little something special always puts a smile on my face, and that can go a long way to feeling good. Timmy and I are always talking about what we can do to feel each other’s love buckets, but we need to fill our OWN love buckets too.
This week definitely feels lighter than last week but it’s definitely still not very light. Ugh, I hate being so negative but I also am just a realist. From the pandemic to the election and everything in between…I know I am not alone when I say I have a rollercoaster of emotions. I am trying to take each day one at a time. Moment by moment. That is easier said than done sometimes. So, I am also making sure to give myself patience, extra love and shine, because I know I am doing my best each day…each moment.
My Postmates from LA SCALA just got delivered so I gotta make this brief. IT’S THE WEEKEND!!! This week was insanely productive, but also very heavy with personal stuff and all this political stuff. Sonny went back to school (He is SO happy. I’m so relieved and happy for him) and my sister, Jade, and her husband are visiting from Chicago!! We are busy! ANYWHOOO, here is everything I wore, used and loved this week if you wanna shop!!
Have y’all tuned into WAIT WHAT WITH WHIT?? If you have, I hope you’ve been loving as much as I have. If you feel like you’re in a little bit of a slump, I highly suggest making a list of all the things you want to learn how to do that you never thought you’d have the time for, and go for it! It may be intimidating at first, but I’m hoping I come out of this quarantine a more well-rounded and knowledgeable human being. I feel so proud of myself and feel so much SHINE for actually making the time to do this stuff. Whenever I accomplish something I start to feel more motivated and empowered. That’s what getting ot of your comfort zone will do!
I AM SO EXCITED!!! I LAUNCHED A CANDLE COLLECTION!!! This has been such a labor of love. I LOVED every single second of the process. I even hand drew all of the illustrations on the packaging!!! AHHHHH! SHINE!! Each candle was inspired by a place that is near and dear to my heart.
