I am not one to shy away from hard work, but as I get older, I’m trying to learn to work smarter – not harder. I used to work 18-hour days and go to bed feeling like I hadn’t accomplished a thing…because I hadn’t.
Today’s post is brought to you by Crest 3D White.
I remember when I was asked on my first date, I spent hours getting ready. I wanted to look like someone else, so I bought brand new clothes and makeup that were completely different from my day-to-day wardrobe.
Fellow short girls of the world, today’s post is for you! I’m sharing my outfit details from the Create + Cultivate conference (read about my experience here), and my dress is another fabulous find from the Target girls’ section.
As a child, I felt like the school year was the time to do all of the things that I was supposed to do. When I wasn’t in school, I spent my time completing endless stacks of IB homework or rehearsing for an upcoming performance at my ballet studio. I complained about the work load and the stress, but I thrived under pressure and couldn’t bear to take anything off my schedule.
As a child growing up in Florida, I lived in sandals. The only closed-toe shoes I owned were sneakers for sports, patent-leather Mary Janes for church, and ballet/jazz/tap shoes for dance class. The sandal craze continued into high school where everyone wore sandals every day – no matter what. We didn’t care if it was 40 degrees outside. We wore sandals.
When I was in middle school, I read an article about all of the nasty chemicals that they put in beauty products. I begged my parents to take me to Whole Foods and let me buy new makeup, shampoo, and conditioner made from natural ingredients. While my parents did in fact buy me new products, I didn’t end up using them for more than a day or two.
