Ditch the Clique ONLINE

Ditch the Clique ONLINE

In my most recent email newsletter I shared how I’m spending my quarantine time. Yes I’ve rearranged my office, caught up on my favorite reality TV shows, and dressed up for NO REASON, but this extra time at home REALLY has me doing A LOT of thinking. Particularly I’ve been thinking about what motivates us as women.  Sure, I’ve thought about this before, but now more than EVER I truly recognize the importance of connection. GIRL I don’t know about YOU, but I know I am much more inspired and empowered to be the best me (AND go after my dreams) when I’m surrounded by other empowered, inspired, and motivated women!

Dressing Up to Stay In During COVID-19 Quarantine

Dressing Up to Stay In During COVID-19 Quarantine

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…

3 Ways to Stay Motivated While Working From Home

3 Ways to Stay Motivated While Working From Home

Ahhh, the “work from home” (WFH) life . It’s every woman’s dream, right?

well…

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?

It’s okay to do things for YOU (and be alone)

It’s okay to do things for YOU (and be alone)

At the kick-off of February, I shared with you that though the “month of love” is the PERFECT time to celebrate the loves of your life, it’s also the BEST time to rekindle your love for YOU!

But what about when the month revolving around love comes to an end?

While I was recently speaking at a women’s event, I discussed the power of celebrating ourselves. But throughout this conversation a few ladies interjected they are often shamed for feeling TOO good about themselves.

…it’s almost as if society (and unfortunately other women) build us up yet wrong us when we are confident in who we are.

And let me tell you what we collectively decided…

But it doesn’t stop there…

NYFW Fall/Winter 2020 Recap

NYFW Fall/Winter 2020 Recap

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…
