Life itself is crazy and sooo fast paced but if you work for yourself you know that any minute you aren’t working, or being somewhat productive, you feel is being wasted. In a few months it’ll be a year since I quit my job and became my own boss. I’ve learned soooo much during this time but I’ve found the most difficult part for me (other than the drastic change in my income) has been allowing myself to stop and enjoy lifes little moments. My mind is always onto the next thing I need to do and therefore I never found myself pausing and celebrating the little things.
Now that I’ve realized I was being harder on myself than any boss I’d ever had, I am constantly making an effort to remind myself that even though I’m a lucky bitch that has no one to report to I deserve to treat myself. And without guilt. If it’s a nice day, I should go to the beach. If one of my friends is off work and wants a few cocktails, I should join them. I had to remind myself why I wanted to do what I do and that no one is here to tell me what to do.
In the spirit of this Joie De Vivre, Nudwear (who this dreaammmyyy silk kimono robe is by) is putting on a contest and sending 1 blogger and 1 follower to Dubai for an all expense paid trip and a ticket to the Bieber concert. Idk about you but, uhh I need this. So cast your votes HERE and don’t forget to submit (and treat) yourself!
I owe you all big time if I win and plan to shower you in beautiful pics and outfit inspo in return. Check out the rest of our joie de vivre vibe shoot and shop my look below. XOXO
