Learning to Love Mondays

Brittany Gori | To B Candid

As much as I love to try and be my own person, there are a few things that I follow the masses on. One of them being that I dread Mondays. So much so that around 4pm on Sunday my happy-go-lucky weekend mood starts to disappear, and I mentally start to prepare my to-do list. The funny thing is that I love my jobs (I work in digital advertising full-time, and focus on my blog in my free time). So while I used to drag my feet on Mondays because I didn’t love something about my job, I’ve really thought to myself what is it that makes Mondays so awful?

Spring Refresh For Under $100

Spring Refresh Accessories - Under $100!

One day the sun is shining, the next day I’m fearful of the grey clouds above me. I can’t keep up. Not to mention, this week I’m in Portland + Seattle for work with expected rain, and next week I’m in Vegas where it’ll be a lovely 80* degrees. My poor skin is going to look so disastrous from all the climate change and recycled air. Eesh. With the wide range of temperature changes, I’ve been having fun mixing and matching the lighter pieces that I’m itching to wear, and pairing them with the practical pieces that are needed to survive the last bit of chill.

On A Budget: Work Style Basics and Accessories

Maternity Work Style #jcrew #ingrid&isabel #madewell

Happy first day of Spring! I can’t tell you how excited I am for warmer weather as wearing dresses makes being pregnant 1000x easier! Everyone expresses themselves in different ways, and I more often than not use my wardrobe to channel my mood. If you’ve been following along for some time, you may have read in my previous post, here, that this year is all about budgeting. With twins on the way, and the real motivation of wanting to buy a house, I’ve been struggling to reinvent my look without breaking the bank. As a result, I’ve been heavily relying on basics and accessories to help me through my pregnancy because having to buy all new sizes makes me want to cry (from cost, not from getting bigger).

Five Ways to Help You Unwind

Making your home a hotel

There’s no place like home. Unless you’re me, and you get some of your best rest while you’re traveling. Maybe it’s the fact that I usually keep my schedule pretty hectic, so when I’m away it’s one of the few times I let myself focus on what’s in front of me. It’s something I’ve been trying to work on, especially with twins on the way, so it’s not much of a surprise that I jump on every opportunity to get away.

Bump-date: 15 Weeks

Amour Vert - Moto Jacket and Swing Dress

I officially turned 15 weeks last Friday, also known as almost 4 months — I never understood the significance of weeks until I got pregnant myself. Time is flying, and since I won’t go full term with twins, I’m just a couple weeks away from being half way cooked! I bought my first pair of maternity jeans over the weekend, and did a bunch of organizing to our apartment in between naps. I think it’s safe to say my nesting has started early. I haven’t done a pregnancy update yet, or bump-date as I will annoyingly refer to them, so this is the first update in the series.
