I wanted to start this post by thanking all of you who have supported me and Gal Meets Glam. Here’s a link to the big announcement yesterday, in case you missed it. I was completely overwhelmed by the support I received from followers, family and friends. It actually became pretty emotional in the late morning, tearing up a bit (in a good way!) from all the kind words I was receiving! It also got me thinking that if I could some how share this elation with you, we could spread joy and the feeling of “accomplishment” across the entire GMG community.
This may be a little unrelated to this post, but I wanted to communicate this message that kept popping up in my head yesterday!
So much of our work lives are dedicated to the mundane, while major accomplishments only happen every once in a great while. It doesn’t help that sometimes it feels like the world is against us and our lofty goals. It’s easy to think that we aren’t good enough for whatever reason. I’m beginning to believe that it is important to enjoy the journey we are on, instead of waiting until the destination, to start being happy. Most of our time in life is spent working towards a goal. So, here’s my solution – I encourage everyone to go out of their way to help others along their journey so that they can accomplish their goals as well. Give them a hand when they need it. Give them constructive advice to help them make improvements. Or give them a kick in the butt when they need a little more motivation. It’s not difficult to do and it will make a world of difference in the other person’s life! No one gets where they are completely alone, and it’s important to surround ourselves with positive people who push us to do better and be the best we can be. The same goes the other way around! To each and every person that gave me an encouraging and supportive note yesterday, whether that be a text, an email, a comment, a tweet or a snap, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I had a little bit of trouble concentrating on my work yesterday, as I wanted to keep responding and connecting with everyone! T and I looked up at the clock at 2:30pm and had hardly moved from our desks all day, so we headed to grab a quick bite and snap some pics.
If you live in SF and haven’t been to Nourish, you must go! T and I discovered this healthy spot right when they opened back in the beginning of the year. The menu is plant-based, all organic and absolutely delicious. We usually grab a quick smoothie to-go with the “power balls” (these are amazing & a great boost of energy midday) or we stop and enjoy some of their yummy toast. This time we got the seasonal pumpkin butter spread and the ab&j (almond instead of peanut).
I’ve worn this dress three times since ordering it from the Shopbop sale last week. It’s now sold out, but I found a similar, less expensive version here! Every woman should have two types of the LBD – one dressy and one casual.
Blazers have been the one item I always rely on to “pull together” a more professional look. I’d been searching for the perfect cream colored one and finally found it in this Elizabeth & James piece. A few others on my radar include this oversized Ganni one, this structured one, this ivory one and this Rag & Bone one.
Thank you to Shopbop for sponsoring this post.
