The Secret to Happiness in Life is Just Learning to Let Things Go

Happiness is one of those things that should be a universal right. Unfortunately, it can sometimes be one of the most difficult things to attain. I had this piece published via Elite Daily this morning, and I wanted to share it with you guys.

This piece talks a bit about what it feels like to be a in place where things aren’t going as planned, and you kind of feel stuck. Also, it describes the process in which one can finally reach acceptance. It also  explores why learning to let go is a really important concept.

We have the option to go left or right at the fork in the road. Ultimately, why not take the one, that even if longer and outside of your comfort zone, will have a better outcome?

Check it out here, and please feel free to comment and share your thoughts! 

I hope that this piece can provide some help in a moment of hardship!

How To Wash Your Jeans

IMG_6288

Jeans.

They’re all I need. Can’t live without ‘em.

One of the most important things to know as an adult is how to safely wash your jeans.

I personally spend a pretty significant amount of money on denim. I find that a good pair of jeans can make any outfit, and go a long way.

My go-to brand is J-Brand, but I’m also a big fan of 7 For All Mankind and Hudson denim too.

I have several pairs of jeans, that I still wear, that I’ve had for over 10 years. Pretty awesome, huh? Who would have thought I’d have a longer relationship with my jeans than a lot of the people in my life. Valuable? I think so…

So, you must be wondering what the secret is to keeping your jeans safe, healthy, and intact for so long?

Here’s the secret…

It’s all in how you wash your jeans!

Ta-Daaaaa!

Here’s how to do it:

1) Always flip your jeans inside out—this helps keep the color from fading

2) Wash on COLD and DELICATE—if delicate is not an option, that’s okay, but make sure the water is set to cold

3) HANG DRY YOUR DENIM—with this, your denim is more likely to keep its form—heat can wear down the material and elastic due to overheating of the fabric.

4) Repeat on each wash

____________________________________________________________________________________

It really is as easy as 1-2-3…

You will absolutely notice a difference in your denim!

“Where can I hang my jeans to dry,” you might ask? Take a peek at this drying rack from IKEA. It’s the perfect size!

I live in a studio in the city, so I understand that space can be limited. It really is perfect.

Happy washing!

Faux Leather

I’m so excited about my new faux leather pants, I couldn’t wait till Fall to wear them!

I’ve done my Fall shopping, and I have been patiently waiting (kinda, lol) to wear my new items…I’m seriously in love!

Luckily though, some of these Fall items are very versatile, and create the ability for me to wear them in the summer…especially when going out.

Weekend outings with friends are my absolute favorite!

Whether out for dinner, drinks, or dancing, I seriously love to dress up.

To this particular event, I chose to wear faux leather pants, a funnel neck sleeveless sweater, leather peeptoe sandals, and a chunky gold choker.

Simple? Yes. Totally chic? Uh huh!

I found this particular outfit playful, yet pretty badass.

Not only that, but nothing beats black-on-black (in my book, at least).

This combo was especially great because both the sweater and pants are made by Trouvé, one of my FAVORITE designer brands.

The sweater will def be perfect for Fall, whether a collared blouse be worn underneath, or a standard long-sleeve shirt, it’ll be elegant and warm!

The faux leather pants, however, are perfect ALL THE TIME. 

You just can’t go wrong…
