We got through 2020! Shine!! I am kicking 2021 off with my morning skincare ritual that I created during quarantine. It is the best way to start my day. I feel clean, refreshed, rejuvenated, ready to face the day…all the things! I swear by all of the products I use. Some are a little bit of a splurge, so I recommend buying just one of the expensive ones.
Last one!! I hope these gift guides have been helpful! I’ve enjoyed making them. I don’t know about you, but I always have a few gifts that I am always scrambling for at the last minute (that’s normal, right? I hope so), and I am so sick of spending $ so I need affordable options. Affordable options are also sometimes the hardest because you don’t want to seem cheap! Anyways, here is a comprehensive of last minute affordable gifts that are thoughtful, creative and crowd pleasers! Even though they are dubbed last minute, that doesn’t mean a thing.
Who else has a hard time buying for men? Timmy deserves so much but I have to admit, he is kind of hard to shop for! I have been listening to him more than ever, picking up on his cues, doing my research and listening to you! You all gave such creative suggestions. So here is a comprehensive list of everything I have found and some things Timmy added in himself.
Hope you all had a wonderful week!! Mine was busy and productive, so I am going to let myself truly relax and feel accomplished this weekend! Here is everything I wore, used and loved this week! Send me a DM on IG if you have any questions about brands or pieces I am wearing. You can follow all of my shopping swipe ups in my SHOPPING highlight on IG.
The holiday season is upon us! I have mixed emotions about it but like it or not it’s here. This year has…well sucked. Right? We are changing all of our normal holiday plans and it is a bummer. I miss my family and wish that we could all just be together. We all have to be to be safe and love from a distance. I love getting people gifts and this year especially I am putting a lot of thought into them. I want everyone I love to feel special.
I hope you were all able to have a happy Thanksgiving in the midst of all of the baseline stress each of us are feeling. My heart is with you. We spent our holiday soaking each other up, trying our best to fill up each other’s love buckets…and being lazy. I loved it. I have been cherishing the moments to sit and do nothing.
Happy Weekend!! Anyone else planning to spend it horizontal like me? I think I will just go from bed to couch to hammock to couch to bed. Hopefully Sonny is on the same page. Can’t wait. Here is everything I wore, used and loved this week – including my new fall collection, Love, Whit with Rent the Runway!!! Check it out if you haven’t yet! It’s soooooo cute. You can also now purchase it if you fall in love with a piece! How exciting is that?
ANDDDD speaking of…we are doing a very special Love, Whit x RTR giveaway! Here are all of the deets –
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 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.
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!
