I am not going to lie; this week has been INTENSE.

With COVID cases on the rise, lots of plans have been pushed back, and I am dealing with some family stuff right now. Regardless of all the hard things happening, I am trying my best to focus on all the good and the blessings in my life. I find that one of the best ways to feel better about things not in my control is to do something nice for others.

I started my week with finishing up my Christmas shopping, and I was fortunate enough to go to Lido Marina in Newport Beach for a very special present for one of my friends. I also combined wrapping presents with some self care by putting on one of my favorite Christmas movies and drinking some spiked hot chocolate.

At work we did Secret Santa this year and I received the most thoughtful and perfect gift from my co-worker! I literally was so impressed by everything she got me and I can’t wait to use everything.

A week or so ago I did a little shopping for myself and bought this super cute sherpa purse from Target. I really don’t have very many purses for everyday use so I thought I would get a fun inexpensive one that I wouldn’t mind getting messed up. I think this one will be great all winter long.

I went into Christmas celebrating with my boyfriends family before my family’s celebration on Christmas Day. It was nice getting dressed up and going to a holiday party. I love the outfit I put together and it definitely put me in the Christmas spirit.

Before I sign off for the holidays, I just wanted to wish you all a very happy holiday season. Christmas can be both the most magical and the most hard time of year. I personally am feeling both. So for all you out there who are struggling, I just wanted to say that it’s okay to be not okay during the holidays and know that you are not alone. We all go through phases in life where the days are hard to get through. My heart is with all of you.
