Shopping my closet and how to shop yours

Shopping Your Closet

For the past while I’ve been trying to streamline my wardrobe by investing in more quality basics to stretch my closet farther. I’m by no means a minimalist but am endlessly obsessed with fashion blogs about minimalism and capsule wardrobes. If you’re looking to streamline as well, one concept you may want to consider is shopping your closet. The idea is that you pull a favourite piece and try creating new outfits centered around it with pieces you already own.

Dry Skin

I’ve mentioned this product once or twice on my Instagram account but it deserves a full post because it’s a game changer.

I tried a number of different night creams and sleep masks. I exfoliated. I even tried vaseline. Nothing really helped until I tried the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant Nighttime Miracle Moisturizer on a whim. It was a good whim.

Resolutions

I’ve never been a particularly goal oriented or resolutions making person. I don’t have a five year plan. I don’t make lists and aggressively check off each item. I’m organized but it’s not on paper. I’ve always been a go-with-the-flow person and in some ways that’s a really good thing. I think I’ve had a lot of amazing experiences because of my willingness to go along with whatever life throws at me. On the other hand, I sometimes wonder if life would be better in some ways, such as my career and finances, if I were more into pursuing and achieving goals.
