If you’ve been a part of this community for sometime, you know even when we’re not in COVID-19 quarantine I work for myself from home on the daily. And most of the time, I LOVE it! Though I’m an extrovert, I find I am more productive and less distracted working on my own. I know if the work is not finished or to my standard, it is the fault of only ONE person….
But as much as I enjoy working on my own, I typically pack my weeks with meetings, lunches, and brainstorm sessions OUTSIDE of my home office with people who empower me and creatively inspire my work! I truly look forward to these in-person interactions, treating them as an opportunity to connect, share, and support businesses, friends, and my community!
Though interfacing with friends and brands is HUGE for me, it’s not the ONLY reason I look forward to leaving the house…
I also LOVE dressing up for it!!
GIRL, I don’t know about YOU but for ME, getting dressed and ready for a day out is potentially the BEST part of the entire process! It’s SO fun to put on a full face of makeup and an outfit I love, but more importantly doing so always reminds me just how important it is to celebrate ME!
I know I’m stating the obvious here but since this quarantine started, it’s been a minute since I’ve had the chance to rejoice in moments like this! But rather than feeling sorry for myself, I decided to do what I do best…DRESS UP!
That’s right, because dressing up brings me SO much joy, I decided to dress up to stay in (and take photos of myself LOL). And let me tell you, I HAD THE BEST TIME! Not only was it fun and a great way to get my mind off the uncertainty we are currently facing, but it kept me INSIDE and entertained! But most importantly, it was the confidence boost I needed in the chaos!
