SELF CARE

Marie Kondo has been asking if our belongings spark joy for years. Consider this piece a “does it spark joy: lifestyle edition“. Ask yourself that question in all aspects of your life. Does my job spark joy? Does my attitude spark joy? Does my lifestyle, clothing, diet, hairstyle, etc spark joy? If not, it’s time to make some changes, Queen!

Self care is a huge buzz word these days. I’ll indulge this fad, but truth is I have always been a big fond fan of taking care of myself. Rituals that better yourself, inside or out, are healthy habits to create.

HYDRATE

In my current self care routine, I work out 5-7 days a week. This includes a mixture of cycling, running, power walking, strength training, HIIT training, pilates and yoga. Mental health is extremely important. Spending 5 minutes to write down what I’m grateful for is truly rewarding. Any go-getter will encourage you to keep pushing your own boundaries and set SMART goals. Wash your dirty hair, Queen! Loving these toning shampoos. Groom and shave DAILY! Something somewhere is growing at all times: eyebrows, legs, under arms, etc. Eat HEALTHY food and drink X ounces (your weight divided by 2) of water a day.

Adding just one simple lifestyle change can have a big impact on your happiness and well being. Small changes equal big results. Put yesterday down, it’s too heavy. Go get ’em, Queen!

Liquid Lipstick

Liquid lipstick has earned a favorable place in my make-up bag. My top three favorite brands are Too Faced, Maybelline and Kylie Cosmetics.

First and foremost these brands have mastered their formulas and have an excellent array of colors. My favorite attributes of liquid lipstick are they dry down matte, are not too drying, they stay put through meals (and cocktails) and are reasonably priced. When I rip my mask off, you can bet your sweet ass I’m rocking liquid lipstick. Yes, Queen, it stays on even with a mask covering.

How to Style Brooches

I know what you’re thinking, “Wait, what? Did she just say (OLD LADY) brooches? I can’t, Queen!” Am I right? Well gang, much like everything else, they’re back. To be quite frank, they never left. I’m going to show you how I style mine and where you can get fashionable ones.

If you are versed at embroidering on leather goods, then you are quite capable of making a brooch yourself. For the vast majority of us, we do not possess said skills. Turn your attention to Etsy where there is a plethora of talent. I can recommend the following with confidence, as they are my go to brooch shops: Sweet Brooch Sisters, Natasha Shumskaya, Natali Brooches, TimeAcs and [my FAVORITE] 5FlowerFinery.

Editing Your Wardrobe

When it comes to editing our wardrobes this can be really hard. Every time I edit my closet I find myself saying things like “maybe I’ll wear that to a Halloween party” or “maybe I’ll get down to that magical size x and be able to wear those jeans from high school again”. A functional closet contains pieces that reflect where you are TODAY. The clothing in your closet should be your current size, colors that flatter your skin tone, tailored to fit your body, and silhouettes that flatter your body shape (ie triangle, rectangle, pear, hourglass, etc). I am not working in corporate America anymore, therefore I do NOT need a plethora of pants suits. Long gone are the days of attending fraternity Halloween parties. Baggy Jinco jeans from the 90’s do not flatter my body shape.

In order to have a functional closet, one needs to understand their body. Know what body shape/type you are. Identify your undertone (cool, warm or neutral) and take body measurements. If you need assistance turn to wardrobe stylist Erin Busbee. She’s a professional stylist and has wonderful YouTube content that covers all the above.

Now that you’re educated on your body, how do you actually get up the nerve to tear into the abyss of clothing that has taken over your closet? Start before you’re ready, queen! Life is short. In this moment, you are the youngest you will ever be and the oldest you’ll ever be. Take advantage of that truth.
