Hi, my friend. How was your weekend? Did you get a three-day? I hope it was equal parts relaxing and productive, just because I always like that. I like when I get some time to relax but also feel like I accomplished something on my to-do list.
But, of course, anytime you get to spend a few days recharging, that’s always a good thing. One lesson I’ve learned the hard way is that downtime is essential. It’s straight-up vital, because if we burn out, we’re no good to ourselves or those around us. (Side note: why does it seem like all of the big “adulting” lessons have to be learned “the hard way”?)
My weekend was spent doing some relaxing and some productive things. I went to the pool and the beach on different days, and I also made some serious headway on what I’m dubbing from this point forward as “The Great Makeup Purge of Summer 2021,” and you know what? I FEEL GREAT!
A few weeks ago I talked about how I’ve been wanting to scale down my makeup collection, because as a beauty lover and a sentimental person, it hasn’t been easy for me to let go of things — like that Chanel Garden Party quad I’ve had since 2008 (!) that I haven’t worn in years.
