Hi everyone!! I know it’s been a while since I’ve gotten a [blog] post up so thought I would just share a little check-in 🙂
I took a nice longgg break from all work and social media in the last few weeks of 2020. It was a long time coming but overall I just felt really overworked from the year and had no motivation to do anything. As things slowed down around the end of the year, I figured that was a good time to to step away without comprising too much.
2020 was a whirlwind of emotions, events, good days and bad. I feel blessed and SO grateful for everyone’s support and kind words of encouragement for my my LWJ channels and SOPHIYA jewelry line.
I’m still struggling to get back in the groove of things after feeling burnt out from last year [ugh don’t you hate strict bosses who overwork you?! :P). This year I’m really focusing on creating a better work-life balance and learning to step away from the computer/work [which is admittedly really hard to do when you are a) a workaholic and b) passionate about your work and c) work for yourself ha].
I’m learning to make workouts and healthy eating a priority, and learning to have a consistent weekly workout routine. I’m working on ways to work smarter and not harder this year, and I’m learning to not stress about the little things and let things happen at their own pace 🙂 I’ll be sharing more in my post about my goals/intentions for 202–so stay tuned!
And if you’ve been on the lookout for a puffer coat–I recently purchased a few winter coats for a reel/review but they all seem to be selling so fast I might not get to my reel soon enough before they sell out! I bought this ultra light down coat [on sale for $60] and this down long coat from UNIQLO [on sale for $130] and love both of them! The ultra light down coat is best if you are looking for something that isn’t too heavy and can easily be packed away. I also love the neutral shade as it matches with all the pieces in my capsule wardrobe. And down long coat is exactly what I’ve been on the search for–a minimal and chic but warm puffer coat. I’m an XS in both coats and there is only XS in the black long coat so I definitely recommend snagging while it’s on sale if you are an XS!
