Simply Put.

Hey everyone!

After being on a computer for 8 hours a day, it's usually hard to motivate myself to come home and get on the computer again. Hence, the lack of blog posts. The thing I've always loved about my blog though is that no matter what stage of my life, my blog is always there. Sometimes I have more time, energy, and inspiration to dedicate to it than others. The important thing to me isn't how much I post, but if the posts are something I'm proud of and feel "me." Those are always two items I make sure to check off on my list!

Lately I've been unwinding in the evenings with Jane the Virgin on Netflix. Do any of you watch it? I got through season one within two weeks and am already forging through season two rather quickly. A little two quickly, ha. Can't decide if I'm team #Rafael or team #Michael. It changes every episode!

For my commutes in and out from work on the subway I've been carrying along "Girl Boss" to read. I've read it once before, but figured when I was packing for NYC it would be a good one to bring along as for the next chapter of my life. I'm pretty sure I raved about it the first time I read it, and I'm gonna rave a second. You HAVE to read this book. It's a motivaor, a confidence instiller, and you-can-do-this-you're-a-badass mantra. The advice Sophia gives is so poignant to my life as a 20 something professional trying to find her way...and it's so on point for people in other stages of their life, too. Are you a girl? Do you want to own your life? Then Girl Boss is for you. Even if you're a guy, it's still for you. Kicking butt in your professional life is for all genders.

Anddd  final, concluding notes of the evening. It's totally acceptable to eat an entire box of macaroni and cheese by yourself for dinner, Satan created the moring subway commute in NYC, buy plants (surrounding yourself with living things is proven to make you feel better), and being nice won't make you finish last--it'll always put you in the lead before crossing the finish line. x

With much love,

Lauren

I absolutely love your outfit and finally, another Jane The Virgin fan has joined the ranks! It's hilarious and I can relate to a ton of it as a Hispanic myself. Oh, and I'm definitely #teammichael all the way! He fits my tastes a bit more ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Š

I love riding along even on a so-called boring subway ride, to your new life! And I love, love, LOVE how you are so stylishly making ends meet without too many outfits and too much money - very inspirational :D

I love this simplistic outfit. Neck scarves for the win!
I haven't watched Jane the Virgin; I'm currently finishing Season 5 of Once Upon A Time because I still kinda really love fairy tales. It's so cheesy, but also makes me really happy and that's what it's all about, right? ;)

I'm making a list of books to take with me to the beach in a couple weeks - I'll have to get Girl Boss! You've connived me I need to read it.

I feel you!
I work at an IT Company, so I'm on the computer 8 hours a day and it's hard to come home and want to open a laptop.
Jane the Virgin is sooooo good! I'm glad you're liking it!

Hello Lauren,
I haven't visited for a while and your post has cheered me up. You are definitely an inspiration and a it's great to reach your blog and relate to your posts.
I love the simplicity of this outfit and will be on the look out for girl boss.
Doing things that make you happy is something we all need to share more.
