Let’s talk about these boots! For me, a pair of Chelseas and some knee highs are totally and truly my go-tos when it comes to simple black boots (that work with every outfit) for colder days. I am also a sucker for play/jumpsuits as they seriously highlight your curves. Hidden Fashion has got you covered for both (plus – they’re having a Black Friday sale), so go, go, go!

I’m a big advocate of New Year’s Resolutions – I’m not quite down the “New Year, New Me” road (perhaps I was when I was 12 years old), but I think rounding up your year and setting goals for the next year is the best way to reflect and keep pushing (a nice bit of cheese for you this evening!) If I’m totally honest, I usually spend all this time thinking up my resolutions for the next year, start January on some sort of goal-getting-high, and then November rolls around (like now), and I scratch my head and ask myself oh yeah… what were those things I wanted to do again? Let’s say this is you – you’ve checked back on your resolutions and maybee… things haven’t quite gone to plan. But there’s only a month or so left of the year… so how do you finish on as high of a note as possible?

Your Weekend and Your Side Hustle: How to Make the Most out of Your Time

I wrote a post not too long ago all about how I balance a full-time job with blogging and other projects – it’s something I get asked a lot so I thought it could be useful to some to provide a little update on how I tightrope along this line. Working full time and trying to balance a ton of other things on the side is definitely not an easy task – you may think you’re superwoman (I’ve definitely thought I am in the past), but after a long day at work and a big dinner that throws you into a food coma, you easily find that you need to be a bit smarter with your time to really reap the most of of your “extra-curricular” activities. The weekends really become two days to truly cherish – finally you have time to tick off the growing to-do list that you’ve told yourself to get to all week before you fall asleep at 9pm. Being likely pretty tired and pretty fed up from a long week, it’s easy to spend your weekend doing a whole lot of nothing – chilling tf out to put it in more simple terms. Sometimes, that’s needed. I went into this current weekend with high hopes, and now its 20:24 on a Sunday and all I really have to show for my weekend is a half drafted guest post and a yet-to-be-edited pre-planned Instagram post for DAME. Maybe a few e-mails too. It happens. But here are some ways to make at least the majority of weekends as productive as possible.
