  1. Applying False Eyelashes
  2. A Wet Eyeshadow Look

What to Wear While at Home

Yup . . . still in quarantine as I suspect most of you are as well. The first week at home, I stayed in my pjs and enjoyed every minute of it. However, I realized quickly that staying “undressed” affected my ability to function mentally well, while “at the office”. Now I didn’t say that I put makeup on or did my hair every day. I have lightened up considerably on my daily routine.

I have just now reached a new normal for me. It does consist with getting dressed every day in ready to walk out the door clothes. I also do my hair and makeup twice a week–mostly for the practice so when I do start venturing out again it doesn’t take me two hours to get ready because I can’t remember how to do it. LOL!

But I decided that there are things to get dressed up for even if you are staying in. Below are 5 outfits for staying in–you decide on the event for wearing them.

Moisturize!

Does anyone else have hands that hurt from all the hand-washing and hand-sanitizing? Everynight before I go to bed, I take 5 minutes and work lotion thoroughly into my knuckles and the tops of my hands that have been hit the hardest. Here are 5 lotions that cycle through of types. What is one that you like?

  1. Mario Badescu Special Hand Cream with Vitamin E 
  2. Vermont Original Bag Balm
  3. Coconut Oil
  4. St. Ives Hydrate
  5. Aveda Special Hand Relief

Closet Purge and Upgrade

I am back at my annual purging and it feels great. When I purge my house, I get rid of 1/3 of everything. It helps me keep things in check by never crowding me out with clutter, staying aware of the things I have that I don’t use on a consistent basis (perhaps due to seasons), and re-asses my needs and wants.

When purging my clothes, I found that I have a ton of shirts but really no bottoms. So yes, I do need to do a little shopping but at least I have direction so I am not just buying more tops. I do love clothes and dressing up. Work is the number one place that I dress up for so I am usually looking for items that are conducive to the workplace.

Here are 5 workplace updates that I would like to see in my closet.
