“You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending.” This CS Lewis quote is my new mantra for 2021.  Jumping into the new year, I’m feeling hopeful, grateful and inspired. In fact, I’ve been SO excited to be out of the 2020 dumpster fire, I feel like a GIANT weight has melted off my shoulders. Anyone else?! I know that nothing has ACTUALLY changed since December 31st, 2020 but something just FEELS different. Also, 2021 has already been especially crazy thanks to yesterday’s insane news out of D.C. so there’s that. I’m still staying positive because it’s the only way to get through all of this in one piece! Likewise, I’m excited to share our first outfit post of the year with you as well as two resolutions I’m setting out to accomplish this year.


Three more sleeps until 2021 and I’m still stuck somewhere in May of 2020. Anybody else?! This year was bizarre, uncertain and somehow, the fastest I’ve ever experienced. While we can’t go out safely this year to celebrate, New Year’s glam does not have to be canceled! We can still get dressed up to ring in the New Year in style. Sharing New Years Eve outfit inspo with you today–from comfy sparkly pieces to dresses I’m loving.  All of these pieces can be styled in chic ways for the rest of 2021 too.


2020 brought us many unexpected circumstances–including the unfortunate gift of “maskne.” Maskne is skin irritation and breakouts brought on by the friction of your mask rubbing against your skin and trapping moisture. Thankfully, my maskne hasn’t been TOO bad overall but the more I wear a mask, the more I’ve noticed small pimples popping up around my chin.  For anyone else who may be in the same boat, I’m rounding up ten masks at different price points that are helping to keep my skin as clear and healthy as possible. After all, not all mask materials are created equally!


Last weekend, I took Naiya on a special date to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Since it’s the first year she is completely enamored by the holidays, I wanted her to see the beautiful holiday lights and decor. As I recently shared here, we haven’t left our little bubble in what seems like forever so an hour or so out felt like a mini vacation. After all, it’s the little things in 2020 that make us light up; what a year it’s been!
