4 Quick Tips to Love Yourself

These tips helped me develop more self-love, and I never thought I’d say that! Not in any particular order. 🥰

  1. Dress for the occasion – If I dress like I’m going to do laundry when I have a date night with my partner, guess what, the vibe for me (for me) is off. I love dressing up and looking cute/bathed, whatever you want to call it. This reminds me of (story time); when I interviewed a candidate for a front desk associate position. I kid you not. This woman came in as if she was ready for the club. Her nails were the size of Texas, skin-tight pants, and a tube top. She looked out of place for the front desk associate position. It felt far from appropriate. It was a painful interview; she was too busy worried about her appearance rather than on the questions. Be your BFF, dress for the occasion, and coach yourself.
  2. Have a hobby – This may sound vague, but you need to do something that fulfills you and makes you happy outside of the everyday bustle. It can be a sport, writing, learning a new language or reading, anything that you do for yourself, with out the need of someone else to do it with you (but awesome if they want to join in).
  3. Have an opinion And don’t be afraid of it. I’ve said some really stupid shit in my youth, and some at my age currently. I’m not perfect, but I’m always open to having my opinions challenged and open to learning from my gaffes. Open to change. Having an idea, and being okay with expressing it, builds your confidence. Otherwise, how will you ever think freely!?
  4. Self-care – The times where I feel confident and loved are when I do my skincare rituals, healthy smoothies (that last for about a week), and all the things that make me feel like a woman. Whatever self-care means for you. Do it. Try to do it consistently.

Loving yourself also means challenging your biases, and being thoughtful about your choices. It means being kind to the child inside of you, protecting your heart when others dismiss your emotions. It takes time, but it’s well worth it to start now if you haven’t done so already.

Do you have any pets? – Yes, I have a beautiful German Shepherd boy; he’s going to be four this year. 

Favorite foundation: It has to be the Mac NC 35 Studio Fix Foundation. It’s lasted longer than most,buildable and long-lasting—also the best for dry skin.

Moisturizer: Cerave face lotion for dry skin. The only one that softens my skin and doesn’t clog or break me out.

Favorite drink: Right now, I’m on a six-month no-drinking challenge, but when I do drink, it’s the classic margarita.

Perfume you’ll wear on your death bed: Atelier clementine. It is by far my favorite perfume of all time and great for any occasion. It smells like, you guessed it, clementines. Citrusy clean smell ❤

Book you’re currently reading: “The Time In Between” its about a seamstress during WWII who becomes a spy ? 0.0

Currently missing? My senior dog. She passed in 2020, and it still feels fresh. I miss her energy, and our home hasn’t been the same. She went peacefully in my arms and lived a wonderful life.

What do you do for fun? -So, I really enjoy reading. The problem is, I can’t finish a book because I have this fear of finishing a book. I know, I know. I always think that I won’t find another one like it or better, which is somewhat true. But I’m trying to get over that fear!

Places you’ve traveled toI’ve been to the Dominican Republic (beautiful place) and Germany (another beautiful place).

Favorite shows:  Peaky Blinders, Chewing Gum, and a classic that will never ever get old. Frasier. When I as younger Frasier was so boring so much and never understand their humor until one day it just grew on me. I tried to do that with Seinfeld, but sadly it didn’t work. 

I hope you’re having a great day!

5 Questions to Ask Your Zoom Date (Covid-19 Edition)

If someone were to tell me in 2019 that 2020 would happen the way it did, I probably would have said, “you’re a mess”. Aaaaand then, 2020 came around.

So for all my single people who are single and want to date as safely as possible. I’ve written a few questions to help you break the ice. If all else fails, let me know. I love hearing how Zoom dates go. I’ve never done one!

  1. How do you feel about scrubbing floors and plunging toilets? – Yes, I’m for real. Look at their reaction. This is a great ice breaker. It also helps you see how they feel about doing manual labor. It’s supposed to be in jest. If they have a sense of humor, great, but if they take offense… run. I also like catching people off guard, because that’s where you see the real them most often. Try it, what do you have to lose?
  2. How would your friends describe you in the group? This is a great question; I even use it during interviews. Generally, this shows you where the person is in the hierarchy and how they view themselves, funny, introverted, serious, etc.
  3. What’s the best dish you’re known for? Great question if you’re a foody and get to know the kind of food they enjoy. If you are planning on an in-person date down the line, you have all the details.
  4. Do you have a favorite comedian? Do they have a sense of humor? If so, what kind? Is it something that will align with yours? For me it’s Bill Burr (love him, still do) because he’s straight up and an acquired taste for some people. Thankfully my partner also appreciated his type of comedy.
  5. Who’s the most inspiring person you know? Who they look up to will say a lot about their values and why they matter to them. Values are at the core of a personality, and will determine the conversations and memories you will choose to share.

If you guys liked this post, let me know, and I’ll make another. Good luck out there, and make sure you never ever, ever, ever, settle. Ever.
