If you don’t know by now my hubby (Marcus) and I are traveling to NYC during NYFW for the first time! (First time to NYC + NYFW) WIN WIN! Plus, it’s my birthday week so who could ask for a better gift to travel to a new place with your other half. Since Marcus is going with me on this trip I didn’t want to make the trip all about me and NYFW especially being in a place neither of us have traveled to before.
Throwing yourself into a new business while retaining a personal life can be an impossible goal, but with the right strategies you can prevent losing your mind and your family. Creating a good work/life balance is fundamental for any role, but something that can be tough. Work/life balance is the positive relationship between our career and extra activities in life such as friends, family, sports etc. They are not separate entities and therefore it is important to acknowledge how we can integrate both to form a happy and healthy relationship.
I came across GiGi New York about a year or so ago when I first collaborated with them. When I found this brand via Instagram, I instantly fell in love. Their vibrant colors and the option to personalize your items is one of my favorite features. If you’ve followed my journey for the past few years, my blog was originally “Heels and Mimosas” and I transitioned over to my name to make it more personable. This post was one of many that got lost in transition and with fall season approaching I thought I would resurface one of my favorite past post and favorite fall item. My GiGi New York Uber Clutch!
I’m all about the #girlboss movement and love seeing other women out making their dreams happen. I recently met Erica of The B Firm PR based in Atlanta, Georgia and it was great to connect with someone doing similar things as you and out getting things done. Erica recently created a series called Table of 20, an intimate luncheon which serves as a platform connecting professionals.
