Hey everyone! I know I’ve taken a small (ok maybe little more than small) hiatus from blogging, and kind of social media in general. I haven’t been online much and that’s honestly because I’ve been insanely busy. So much has gone on in the past month, that I just needed a little break. But I’m back, and I’m here to fill you in on what’s been going on in my world!
If you read my update post, I filled you in a little on what’s been going on in my life. I’ve been INSANELY busy since I started my internship, and I’ve had to balance 15 hours/week in the office plus the six classes I take at school! It’s definitely been the struggle to keep up with everything. However, since I’ve been so busy, I’ve learned a few tricks on how to feel a little more put together even when you’re not!
Do Your Eyebrows
It sounds kinda crazy, but if I’m not wearing makeup to class, I’ll usually just do my eyebrows (and maaybe some mascara). Your eyebrows frame your face, so when you just do one little extra step to pencil them in, you’ll feel so much better! I don’t do a full statement brow or anything, but I do fill them in with a pencil to get a full-brow natural look. I use the anastasia brow wiz, but this one is a lot cheaper and works just as great!
Plan Your Outfit the Night Before
I’ve started to do this since starting my internship, and it saves me so much time in the morning! I don’t have to think twice about what I’m wearing and I know it’ll always be cute because I took the time the night before to pick it out, instead of throwing things on the morning of because I’m running 30 minutes late! You can even write it down in your planner so you can plan out your look for every day of the week!
Give Yourself a Manicure
It’s amazing what a set of freshly painted nails can do. I grew up not being able to really wear nail polish because of cheerleading, but I’ve since discovered how amazing painted nails can make you feel! The past couple weeks I’ve been feeling extra put-together with my painted nails while I’m typing away at my computer in my office in downtown Manhattan! It makes you feel super sophisticated. I’ve been loving this grey color from Essie because it matches everything!
Wear a Pair of Sunglasses
The ultimate way to feel confident is a pair of super cool sunglasses. No matter what you’re wearing, how you feel, or how many bags are under your eyes, sunglasses will shield the world from it all and you’ll get that awesome cool-girl look. If you’re feeling you need a little more, add a baseball hat. We all know how much I love a good athleisure look and sunnies + a baseball hat = athleisure perfection.
