Loving yourself can be one of the hardest things to do. Why is that? We can be our worst enemies at the flip of a switch. I know for me, if something doesn’t go as I planned or hoped, I am quick to point the finger at myself. It must have been something I did or said. I should’ve handled the situation differently. No. Stop. We HAVE to be our biggest cheerleaders. That phrase people say is 100% true…”treat yourself like you would treat your best friend.” We have to emotionally be there for ourselves especially in times like these where there is so much uncertainty. It is imperative for our mental health.
It feels like overnight all of our lives changed drastically. Quarantine was definitely a shock to our family’s system. We went through many phases of coping. The beginning was filled with so much anxiety fueled by fear of the virus, uncertainty and feeling trapped at home. Before too long, we quickly realized we needed to start truly taking care of ourselves – mentally and physically.
This week was so crazy. Every day went by so quickly, yet it felt so long. I have been feeling a little more anxious and frazzled lately so I am really going to take the time to just be this weekend. I hope you all have a restful holiday weekend ahead of you as well!! In case you are in the mood to shop on the couch ( like me ;)), here is everything I wore, used and loved over the past few weeks.
Here with a very special post from Jaquelyn Nguyen, an ER Nurse working in NYC! First off, I want to thank Jaquelyn for all of the work she is doing on the front lines of COVID-19. I am so grateful to all of the healthcare workers who are tirelessly working every day.
I am obsessed with Sonny’s hair. Cutest curls in the world. I hope they NEVER go away. A lot of you are always asking me how I manage them. When he had extremely long hair it wasn’t easy. He used to hate having his hair washed because it would get SO tangly. His hair is much shorter now and thankfully he doesn’t mind having it detangled. He gets a head massage! Who doesn’t love that? I hope he grows up to love his hair as much as I do.
FriYAY for REALLLLLLL people. This week was insanity for me. I got my period and was PMS’ing hard core. Likely why I have been a little MIA on social. I hope you had a wonderful week though and have a relaxing weekend ahead of you. That is what I am hoping for! Below you will find everything I wore, used and loved this week!
IT’S FRIDAY!! YAY. Ready for a weekend of lounging by the pool and on the couch. We have also quarantined for the last two weeks and are finally going to see some of our family without masks on this weekend!!! I seriously can’t wait. I wanna hug my mom really tight and squeeze baby Wolfie so hard.
If you tuned into our LIVE on YouTube this past Saturday, you heard that Timmy, Sonny and I are back to strict quarantine. I am totally stir crazy. I am experiencing those same anxieties I had at the beginning of quarantine fueled by feeling trapped. Timmy and I agreed that we have to be on each other’s teams while we are stuck in the walls of our home.
It’s Saturday!!! Hallelujah! AND I can’t believe it is already August. Wild. I am going to do my very best to chill hard this weekend. We will see how it goes!! If you plan on spending a lot of time on the couch (like I do) and want to do some online shopping, here are links to everything I wore, used and loved this week!
Hope everyone is doing ok! It is kind of a weird Friday. I have been really trying to mark the weekends with real rest and relaxation, but the days are blending together. I am going a little stir crazy. We are having a good time playing house and keeping things as comfortable and hassle free as possible. IF I even put on shoes, they’re most likely one of the pairs below. I decided to put together a curated list of timeless sneakers that go with any look. Whether I am pacing around the house or taking Sonny on a walk – most likely sneakers are being worn.
