I hope everyone is doing well! This week was a little up and down for me. However, I am trying to be proud of myself for acknowledging and paying attention to my feelings. It is easier to put them on a shelf and ignore. I didn’t do that. One thing that really rocked my world – in the BEST way – was that I decided on a name for my upcoming loungewear collection!!!! COZECO!!!! I am SOOOO excited. In case, y’all missed it…I am working on a loungewear collection. It is my newest baby, and I am so excited to share more of the process and, in the end, the collection with you. SO – I am SHINING for taking care of my needs this week AND for COZECO!
Prior to quarantine, I didn’t have a designated work space. If I wasn’t at an event, filming or recording my podcast, WITH WHIT, I was working from home at my breakfast table. It was tough. It was hard to concentrate on what I needed to do for work, as I got distracted by things that needed to be done around the house or for Timmy and Sonny. On top of that, I didn’t have a spot for anything.
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.
I’m back!! I hope you all are hanging in there as our world continues to present stress, anxiety and an unknown future. Ugh! It’s all just so much! I want to thank you all so much for being such a supportive community to me and each other. It means so much.
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.
As promised, here is my gift guide for kids!! It has a good mix of toys you both will love, books with beautiful messages, fun fashion finds and just cute stuff! Right now, Sonny is in the “PLAY WITH ME!” phase, so I chose gifts that we both could enjoy! The stars on his ceiling are the best art project for you ever! So therapeutic. Hopefully these ideas will help you find those last minute gifts you need for the kids in your life! I promise they will love any of this! Well, maybe not the clothes, but, everything else.
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.
