Happy Tuesday Everyone! I hope you guys are having a great week. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about self-care and how important it is to our over all well-being. A couple of weeks ago I went to the doctor because I was feeling extremely tired all of the time, having some bad headaches and just lacking in energy to the point where I felt like I could fall asleep at any minute. Initially I thought that maybe I was deficient in something so requested a blood test which thankfully came back normal. It turns out that I was just burnt out and really run down, which was kind of surprising to me that it would manifest itself physically. Anyways since then I’ve been taking my self-care a little more seriously and wanted to share a couple of things that I’ve found to be helpful!

Happy Monday, everyone! All of the sudden we’re in full on Winter mode here in New York! Within two weeks it literally went from being t-shirt weather to needing to dig up my thermals. Honestly, I’m not even that mad about it because cold weather dressing is my absolute favorite. Nothing makes me happier than sweaters, fluffy coats and my good old Chelsea boots. Speaking of coats, I recently purchased a new that I’ve been wearing every day since it came in the mail. One of my favorite bloggers Something Navy created a line for Nordstrom that came out in September and I bought a couple of really cute pieces that I’ve been living in, this coat being one of them! For the price point, I was pretty surprised at how warm and cosy it is and the thing I love most about it is how oversized it is so you can wear a chunky sweater underneath with no problems. The only negative thing I would say about it is that there’s no button to close it so I might have to look into sewing one on myself just because I find myself holding it closed with my hands.

Happy Thursday, everyone! We’re so close to the weekend, I have some serious plans to chill out at home and do a lot of cleaning and maybe even switch out my summer wardrobe for some sweaters and coats. Speaking of home, I recently gave my bedroom a mini-makeover and switched up my bedding. Ever since I was about 18, I’ve had an obsession with bedding. I think I picked it up from my Mom, but nothing makes me happier than having a beautifully made bed (anyone else make theirs first thing in the morning?) In the past I’ve found some really beautiful comforters in TK Maxx. My last blue and white one was a Ralph Lauren one that I adored but because it was a comforter it was really hard to wash. So this time around I decided to invest in a duvet that was a steal on Amazon and recommended to me by a co-worker and a beautiful duvet cover from Pottery Barn during their sale and I just love how it turned out! I’ve linked a couple of others below that I had my eye on when I was searching!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I hope you guys are having a wonderful week. It’s been a super busy month for me between work and a lot of family visits so needless to say the weeks have been going far too fast and I can’t believe we’re already half way through October! I’ve said it so many times before but this is my favorite time of year to be in New York.  October is always the month where I feel the happiest to be where I am and ready to soak up all of the wonderful things that come along with Autumn in this city. I always think of it as the lull in the year, after the madness of Summer and September working in fashion and before the build up to Christmas properly begins.
