I had a few blog posts planned for early this month, but like many of you, I needed to take a pause. The increasingly publicized and irrefutable stories of racial injustice particularly towards the Black Community was, and is, so heartbreaking. As a minority, I have always been strongly aware and sensitive to racism that exists in our society, mostly because I experienced or witnessed it. In light of recent events, I am even more shocked, disheartened, and frustrated by the disparity of racial injustice that continues to negatively impact the Black Community.
I love trying new beauty products. Whether it’s makeup or skincare, there are so many options and new brands to discover for every skin type and look. I have sensitive, break-out prone skin and am very picky about the quality of the product. These are my picks for the best beauty products for May / June that I’m using regularly now.
How are you all doing over there?! I’m continuing to work on simplifying my life as well as re-evaluating priorities. Included in this, is being more thoughtful about the products I bring into my home and life. Today, I just wanted to share some of my current essentials that I need in my life right now.
Hi Everyone! Hope you are well and hanging in there! In my last post I shared some of my home office faves which are more reasonably priced and perfect for a smaller space. For this post, I’m sharing more home product must-haves for “Staying Home”. These are the items that are helping to make my time at home more pleasant. 🙂
So, what have you been wearing lately? At the onset of the “stay-at-home” order in New York, I dressed mostly in athleisure. Aside from being more comfortable, I thought that I’d be more inclined to exercise while stuck at home if I dressed for it, or at least that’s what I told myself… Well, the reality is that it didn’t make me exercise more and, in fact, made me feel less motivated overall. So now I am back to dressing a little more like I did before. Previously, due to my lifestyle and profession in a more creative field, I didn’t often dress formally or with a corporate style but I did always try to look put together (mostly with jeans, my wardrobe must-have). I only wore workout clothes if I actually had a workout. 🙂 As with anything though, it’s about balance, so here are some fave jeans, cute tops for those video chats, and comfy clothes to get through life now as well as later.
Hi everyone! Hope you are well and staying healthy. I live in New York and my kids’ schools closed due to the COVID-19 virus almost 3 weeks ago, so we’ve had a little extra time to settle into our ‘stay-at-home’ routine. Even still, it’s a bizarre new reality that I sometimes forget when I wake up in the morning. Fortunately, we’ve been relatively healthy (knock on wood), so can’t complain. In fact, this ‘pause’ on life is exactly what I needed.
The ’90’s are having their moment in fashion right now and I’m surprised (and happy) to say… I love it! Although I thought some of the looks/trends, like high-waisted jeans, were questionable at the time, it was an exciting time to celebrate personal style especially with a show like “SATC” with Sarah Jessica Parker. A store that helped inspire and fuel new excitement and creativity in fashion in the ’90’s was Scoop NYC.
