Mornings with Nature's Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies. All opinions are 100% mine.

I'd like to think I'm a morning person... Until I decide to hit that snooze button. FOUR TIMES. Wake up an hour later. Get out of bed another hour after. It's terrible I'm telling you. I also like to take my time getting ready each day. Just hate the feeling of being rushed (although I still kind of do even when I start getting ready early)! When I used to work from home, I can tell you it was very tempting to sleep in during the week. There are days when getting up is just as big of a struggle as it was when I commuted to work. Now that I'm back in the retail world, I'm still adjusting on  how to get out of bed faster. So in order to stay productive and force myself to get up and moving, I set my alarm at 9AM every day even on weekends. No matter how late I sleep the night before.

My "Off Duty" Look

Whenever I have any downtime (which is pretty much all the time), I like to dress super casual. On this particular day, I happened to have a free afternoon, so I threw on my boyfriend jeans with an oversized cardigan layered over a turtleneck sweater. I've been really obsessed with all of these looks I've been seeing.. not only is it a really cool look, but it's also the epitome of warmth + style. I threw on this bright blue coat to give a pop of colour for the day. My sister and I ended up wandering in the art gallery, mainly because there was a special exhibit with some of Van Gogh's and Monet's work. Then we had dinner at a Filipino restaurant called Platito. I've been pairing turtleneck sweaters with everything this season. They're just my go-to pieces to keep me warm while still looking chic. Plus, it's great for layering!

A Moment In Time

As a twenty-something working in retail, I sometimes feel guilty that I can't spend the kind of long and drawn out quality time with my family and friends. Everyone wants to be able to fit everything into their schedules: have a stellar career, see the people they love, have a social life, etc. However,it's impossible for me to do a multitude of things and do them well. This is obviously no way to live long-term, and no matter how busy I am I know it's crucial to spend quality time with the people I care about. Whether it’s hanging with family, friends, colleagues, or old friends you don’t get to see often, it’s important to make sure the time you get to spend with them is as meaningful as possible. I've come up with simple and easy ways to make sure that the time you spend with loved ones feels fulfilling. Everyone has their own way of turning off and tuning out the stressors of daily life, and these are the ones that I feel would work best.
