Don’t get me wrong, I’m doing my best to live in the NOW and appreciate the little things, BUT that doesn’t mean I’m not still dreaming about life after quarantine.
In fact, I’ve recently caught myself day dreaming about the food I’ll eat, friends I’ll hug, and places I’ll travel post quarantine and THAT’S OKAY! I mean, we all need something to look forward to, right? Personally, I think as long as we allow dreaming about life after quarantine to motivate us rather than discourage us, it’s absolutely healthy and OKAY!
And like the true fashionista I am, I can’t help but dream about what I’m going to wear after quarantine, too! Creating outfits that express my personality and mood is an artistic and inspirational outlet for me, so it seems like a fair addition to my list of post quarantine dreams!
But the question is…what am I wearing after quarantine?

It’s no secret we’re all feeling a bit unmotivated lately. I don’t know about you but I typically find inspiration in my circle of empowered women and my surroundings (bless you, New York City). But because my surroundings haven’t changed in WEEKS…well…let’s just say I’ve been forced to find inspiration elsewhere.
And you know, I’ve decided that’s not necessarily a bad thing…
In fact, since being FORCED to find inspiration in other ways, I’ve arguably been more creative than EVER before! WILD, right?
I know you’re likely in need of creative ways to find inspiration too, so I’m excited to share one of my MANY methods with you! (I used and loved this method PRE quarantine, but have found it to be an absolute game changer since quarantine started, too!)
So let’s get into it!

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…

Ahhh, the “work from home” (WFH) life . It’s every woman’s dream, right?
I know it sounds like a dream come true but as someone who has worked from home for herself for over a year, I’ll let you in on a secret. It CAN be a dream…but it CAN also be lonely, and distracting.
When I chat about my work, I often hear “you seem extremely self motivating” and am frequently asked “how do you stay motivated while working from home?” And let me tell you- I have my tough times too! BUT over the past year, I’ve developed a few tricks to staying engaged, inspired, and SANE while working from home! And because you’re likely working from home right now too, I figure what better time to share my tips with YOU?

Maybe you’ve heard but…
At the end of 2019, I launched my Ditch the Clique series offering women of all ages, races, sizes, and career paths a safe space to share their goals and find an inspiring community to help them chase (and ACHIEVE) their dreams. The first of many Ditch the Clique events was hosted in my hometown of Pennsylvania, with the New York City kick off event launching Spring 2020!
But it doesn’t stop there…

And just like that, New York Fashion Week has come and gone (AGAIN!)
February is fashion month (I know, that happened fast right?) and I’m still on a high from last season! September’s NYFW was the VERY best yet, not only providing me the opportunity to attend a dozen INCREDIBLE shows, but it was a space to network with inspiring and empowering women in the industry, too!
And don’t worry, this season has lived up to the expectation AND MORE!
One of my FAVORITE things about NYFW…

Oh, Valentines Day.
Is it just me, or is it one of those holidays you either love or hate? And more often than not, your opinion of the day revolves around your relationship status, right?
(Now I’m not sure if as a married woman it’s “appropriate” to ask this but…) Why is it that we allow our relationship(s) with other people to impact the the way we love ourselves? What about YOU? What about the love you have for YOU? That MUST stand for something, right?
