How to Balance Work + Life

March 21, 2019

Top: Chicwish, similar here
Shoes: Calvin Klein
Coat: Boohoo - not available in gray anymore but camel + black are!
Earrings: Green Velvet Boutique

Hey babes! This topic is one I get asked about a lot, especially considering I do not blog full time. But before we get into that, let's chat about my outfit. I just got this fun velvet top, similar here from Chicwish and it was pretty chilly the day we shot it so I paired it with a cute trench coat. Chicwish has so many cute things right now, here are my favorites! 


this shirt dress in bronze or blue. OMG so so cute for Spring! 

this high low V Neck top, would look so cute with jeans, flare jeans or shorts for Spring

these wide leg pants in Peach! How cute with wedges or flat sandals and a sleeveless top

this floral crop top paired with a little skirt or high waisted jeans

these wide leg pants in black. Sexy, slimming and chic! 

How do I balance work and life? Sometimes I ask myself this too. I am a part time blogger (even though I work on it everyday) and a part time restaurant manager, bartender and sometimes server. I typically work nights and live 30 minutes away from my job so work-life balance is very important to me. The time came for me to get my sh*t together when Justin told me I was on my phone too much (for the 100th time!). As a blogger, I do need to be on my phone a lot but I needed to find some balance. Here are some tips that helped me:

- download a productivity app! This will let you plan your day with exact time restraints so you stay on track.

- know when you work best. For me this is typically nights! 

- schedule social media time (ex. on the days I work nights I post during the day, on the days I have off I try to post during the day so I can have nights off with Justin)

- have a dedicated "work space." For example, I am not going to be working in bed or on the couch because that usually makes me tired. 

- schedule one Admin day per week. This is my plan stuff out day. I typically do this on Sundays. I get my planner and sit down and organize my time for the week! 

- make time to unplug 

- work smarter. When I am doing emails/ blog posts, I put my phone in a different room. It's so easy to get distracted by checking instagram stories, responding to texts, etc. 

These are a few little things that have helped me recently. I hope they help you also! We are going to walk the dogs and grab Chipotle right now. Enjoy your night!

Wow! It is frigid today! I hope you are staying warm! I tagged along with my mom to Memphis because she is doing some work here. She's making me do my first Orange Theory class tomorrow so I'm excited for that! 

I love a good warm AND chic outfit so I wanted to share this with you guys. I received this sweater from Chicwish and OMG it is so warm and cuteee. I think pairing an oversized sweater with skinny jeans and over the knee boots is such a killer outfit. Chicwish has so many cute pieces for Winter right now, I have linked them below!
