Doing Nothing

July 21, 2015

Living in this city means developing some serious hustle, some insane work ethic, and a whole lot of sleep deprivation. Our old schedules don’t exist because our work ethic has to match our peers. We have to establish ourselves so we spend every second of every day thinking about work. Getting better. Going further. Building our brands. Our weekdays are filled with back to back meetings and late nights at the office. Our weekends aren’t for rest, they’re for being Weekend Warriors.

Check out my favorites below:

There’s something about the summer that, for whatever reason, makes me love wearing makeup. I have no idea why. You would think that with the humidity and all that I’d be rocking the natural look. And while I generally wear little to no makeup on the weekdays, I love getting dolled up on the weekends. This past weekend was probably the first time I had a full face of makeup on in a couple of months, and I realized how much I’ve missed it. My Summer Beauty Staples are relatively inexpensive.
