How Can We Stop Comparing and Start Empowering Ourselves

stop comparing

We’ve all fallen down that rabbit hole. It innocently starts with a simple scroll down our Instagram feeds. Eventually, thoughts start to emerge in our minds. Why does she have that? Why is she there? Why am I here? It’s a fucking trap. But after all those feelings fade, we can agree how ridiculous it is. Meaning that it doesn’t make any sense that we’re comparing our lives to other people’s....

Check Pants With a View – And a Personal Invite

personal invite

A while back I received a personal invite to go visit a new building in the area I live in. If you’re new to the blog, you’ll find out I’m living in Long Island City. Which is, pretty much, a very industrial and under-construction place. With that said, the building I visited was still under construction but their model apartments were completely done. I have to say I fell in love...

Because I love to share my process, I decided to write a post focused on the blogging tools I use on a daily basis. When I talk about blogging tools I mean every single thing I use to compose a post or an Instagram shot. Of course, as your blog evolves, so do the...

The Day I Wore a Denim Jacket During Winter in NYC

denim jacket

There are days when all you want to do is put on 3 or 4 pieces of clothing and get on with it. That was this day. It was a Monday. I woke up pretty early to get a jump start on e-mails, readings, posts. I worked from bed – because on Monday’s my husband has the morning off. It’s nice to just sit next to him while he sleeps with...

5 Things to Give Up For Better and Healthier Skin

healthier skin

One of my ultimate topics around here is skin care. Since I’ve struggled with so many different problems over the past few years, it seemed like a natural fit. Ever since I started to take extra time and really invest in my beauty regime, things have improved a lot. I started paying more attention to the ingredients in the products I was using, the food I was eating, water intake...

The Empties – Or What Beauty Products I’ve Been Using Non-Stop

the empties

This is a first here on the blog. And if you follow Eva Chen on Instagram, you know she’s the one I got the inspiration from. From time to time, she does these short videos where she talks about products she’s been using and finishing to the last drop. And I thought it would be interesting to do the same in post form. Because these are the products I can...

Neutrals, Pastels and Fighting Off Winter

pastels

There’s something about wearing soft, neutrals and pastels in winter that’s rather soothing. You don’t think about it, but black, grey and camel can get a tad tiring – even though I’ve been trying to mix it up lately. Especially when the winter is so long, you start to miss those soft spring colors. I would never be able to pull off this outfit right now without a coat, but I...

One Month of Sweat With Kayla – And Why I Started

Kayla

About a month ago, I started looking at old pictures of myself. Suddenly, it was 2 in the morning and I haven’t even gone through half. My friends and I used to take a lot of pictures. But one thing I noticed, that I hadn’t before, I was always chubby. I wasn’t necessarily fat, but I wasn’t healthy either. My weight fluctuates a lot, I get moments when everything is...

A Love Story – When All of a Sudden, Everything Makes Sense

love story

For those of you who know me on a personal level, know I’m not a person who shares a lot about personal issues. As I’ve told you here, it wasn’t until I actually broke up with my ex-boyfriend that people knew about it – including my parents. So, when I started dating my husband, back in 2010, we tried to keep it on the low. Not because we were even remotely...

New York Fashion Week Update

fashion week

For those of you not aware, fashion month has started full blown. Since last Thursday, New York City has been filled with the latest and hottest fall 2017 ready-to-wear collections, celebrities, photographers and, of course, bloggers. We call it Fashion Week! My Instagram feed is all about the shows, the city, the candid snaps, the outfits and the ubers (is that a word?). All this commotion makes me tingle with FOMO. But...
