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?

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…

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…

If you’ve followed along here for a few years (THANK YOU) you may remember a time when I wore EXCLUSIVELY black.
DAMN. Was that a sad time…and not just because I only wore ONE color but for my reasoning behind it. Though at the time I would have claimed to dress in all black because it was “trendy“, I REALLY only wore black because I was hiding my emotions and destructive thoughts behind that color and under those clothes. Though I had ALWAYS sought to stand out, I wanted to blend in. Because…

Is it just me or is winter the BEST yet most difficult season to dress for? I LIVE for layers, but I’m also ALWAYS hot! Temperatures fluctuate like crazy in the city, especially when hopping on and off the subway and back and forth between buildings!
The truth is, I’ve left my Brooklyn brownstone TOO many times wearing too many or too little layers. And let me tell you, I do not regret much but I ALWAYS regret that! But not to worry, I’ve learned from my mistakes and promised myself NO MORE WARDROBE REGRETS making me feel less than in 2020!

So, what is THE addition to my wardrobe saving me this season?
Have you ever had a dream (a REALLY BIG dream), but zero idea how to make it a reality?
Yeah girl, I get that. In fact, that was me with NYFW.
As a young fashionista, I grew up dreaming of attending NYFW. Between magazines and media coverage, I would obsess over the designers AND the women attending shows. So naturally, as I got older, I did everything I could to figure out how these women attended NYFW. I googled and researched like CRAZY but still felt clueless.
Eventually my years of obsessively researching and networking in the industry taught me the true purpose of NYFW and exactly who it’s for…
