5 Mid-Year Wardrobe Organization Tips

As May approaches, it’s time to change up your wardrobe and your look, and to peer ahead into the first half of the year. To help you along, here are 5 ideas for what you can do mid-year to get the most out of the remainder of 2019.

1. Don’t just clean out your wardrobe: curate it.

Mid-year is as perfect a time as any to tackle your wardrobe: you know where you are in life so far, and you should have a clear idea of how you want to spend the rest of 2019. So tackle your wardrobe, make it a thing of beauty, and ensure that it reflects who you are going to be before the year is out.

2. Become familiar with the trends of the coming season, and start planning the pieces to add to your wardrobe.

It’s easy to get excited with the Spring, but be wary not to let that translate to hasty impulse buys and short-sighted purchases. If the warmer months are on your horizon look at summer 2019‘s fashion trends in advance. Or, look far beyond into fall 2019 and work out which types of pieces will best fit with your own curated wardrobe before you buy.

3. Mix it up.

Part of the curation process is culling the average and investing in better quality pieces. But it’s also in making better use of what you’ve already got. Make it a mid-year resolution to create outfits out of those clothes and accessories that aren’t getting any wear. If you have wardrobe orphans (and odds are most of us do) make a decision to either ditch them, or pick up pieces that you can pair them with.

4. Reinvent yourself through a new hair color.

Wardrobe is one thing, but hair can also make the man or the woman. When it comes to hair color in 2019, I have one defining motto: just change it. If you feel you’re in need of freshening up, take a leap and don’t make it half-hearted. A hair color change is as good as a mid-year reinvention. 

5. Refresh what’s underneath.

Take a little advice from Tom Ford and ditch your underwear and socks every six months to keep things fresh. Underwear is a foundation to your outfits, after all. So all those pairs you got for Christmas? Now’s the time to replace them.

My Thoughts on The Music Industry

As someone who has been performing, writing, working on music ever since she was a child, and years trying to break into the music industry, I would like to give some important, valuable advice and suggestions that I’ve gain throughout the years to young performers out there who are thinking about stepping into this industry with the only and most precious and priceless thing they have. Talent.

Here are my thoughts:

In today’s music industry, when you’re first starting out your music career journey, “they” look for how much money you have, instead of the actual talent. Isn’t talent more important then some stupid, dirty money? What if you don’t have thousands of dollars to put in towards your career, what do you do? if you have talent, passion, determination and can’t afford to get discovered? If I was a record producer, I would look for the talent, the passion, and the heart that a person has for music, instead of ripping them off with cash. I mean you can’t really buy talent, ether you are born with it, or not!

I don’t like the fact that today’s music business is mainly about “money.” What about all of those struggling talented street musicians out there who have big dreams? Unfortunately, they never get to make it. It only happens to one in a million, but why??!! Is it because they were not born lucky enough? Just because they can’t afford to get discovered, they are not worth it?

FACT: In this century money answers all the questions. Sadly, but true.

Being discovered on YouTube happens only to one in a million, and even then, unless you can sing like Mariah Carey and/or dance like Michael Jackson and have some sort of a budget, no one is going to work with you for free. Recording a professional demo or an EP album costs between $5,000 to $30,000, depending on how of a professional press kit you’re going for. Now a days A&R and record companies are looking for original materials, it’s not professional to record demo covers anymore. And when it comes to technology, Pro Logic software can costs between $200 to $500, Pro Tools costs between $300 to $2,500, a professional mic with all its accessories can cost up to $1,000 to $3,000, professional photoshoot for your promo press kit can cost between $1,000 up to $5000, and also license fees, album designing fees, and any other expenses that you might have. Basically, what I’m trying to say is that, nothing ever happens for free, especially in show-business.

And when it comes to recording in a professional recording studio, sessions start from $90 an hour + musicians and producers fee. So as you can imagine, it’s not that easy being an aspiring struggling artist now a day’s who’s trying to get their music heard… Unless of course, you come from a wealthy family or you have a sponsor, then that’s a whole other story.

Be careful who you trust!
A few years back, I met someone in the music business who said he’d “help” me with my music career. He talked for hours and hours way too much nonsense, sounded very suspicious, and just to good to be true. I never contacted him back since then. I honestly, don’t trust those kind of people. Never have, never will!

NOTE: To all you aspiring struggling artists out there: please be careful who you trust! Don’t believe everybody who say’s they want to help you, they obviously don’t! They are a lot of bad, negative people out there who want to take advantage of you, specially in this shady business. You got to be smart and have brains, because other wise if you are naive, it will lead you to a very negative world, and you don’t want that! Just believe in your heart and trust your gut! Your gut will never lie, trust me! If something in you says you can’t trust a person, then don’t! as simple as that. Don’t ever let other people take advantage of you! Be positive and smart!

And ladies, while a few known artists have “slept their way” into something, 50% have not. So if someone is telling you that’s the way it’s done, tell them to go to hell! While there are exceptions, most professionals in the music industry and companies that have been in the industry for ten years or more, are honest and legitimate. So, make sure to work with an established company, trust your instincts, and you should be fine.

6 Things You Should Do on Sundays

I‘m a planner by nature. I love planning ahead. Every Sunday I take my time to get some stuff done to reset for the week ahead. This is really necessary for me, otherwise everything will end up in failure. So here I’ve made my little to do list for you. It really isn’t anything special, but who knows it might help some of you out there.

1. Ease into the day

Take your time waking. Jumping out of bed to get everything done straight ahead isn’t the best way to start your day. Make yourself a nice breakfast, grab some coffee or tea and turn on Netflix (or the newspaper if you’re old fashioned). Pajamas are optional, but highly recommended.

2. Do laundry

Every Monday morning I find getting up really hard, so I don’t want to think too much about my clothing. If you have done your laundry in the weekend and have all your clothing clean by Monday, I can assure you that this will speed up your getting-dressed process.

3. Exercise

Sunday is a great day to exercise. Go outside even when it’s just for a walk. Especially when you spent mos of your week inside because of your work.

4. Choose at least 3 outfits you’ll wear next week

I can really recommend this one. I believe that you will create better outfits when you are not feeling stressed by a mountain of emails in the morning or when you have to hurry to make an 8 a.m meeting. You will never regret this. Never.

5. Clean out your purse

You will be surprised how much you can actually fit in a purse. I happen to always take receipts and they will be stuck in my wallet for weeks. Pretty annoying if you ask me. This one I still need to add to my routine. Start your week fresh by removing anything like hairbands, receipts and all the other stuff that you won’t need.

6. Organize your closet

If your closet isn’t organized it makes it harder to create outfits in the morning. If everything hangs in the correct spot and you have nice folded staples of shirts and pants, I can promise you that you are ready to go within 10 minutes.

And there you have it! 6 things I do and that I think you should do on Sunday

What Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Taught Me About Style

For two young ladies growing up in the spotlight, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have barely made any fashion mistakes. And that’s saying a lot passing through the nineties, where good was bad and bad was horrific. Boasting two of the most sought after brands, Elizabeth and James and The Row, Mary-Kate and Ashley have become better known as fashion power houses rather than actresses. As a result, the Olsens have been the leading topic in Celebrity Style Inspiration for years.

Here’s what the twins have taught me about style, so far.

  • You do not have to be tall to wear over-sized clothing

  • Chicness exists in an all black outfit and no, you will not look like Helena Bonham Carter (unless that’s your goal. In which case, yes. Yes, you will)

  • Navy and black can be worn together. I repeat. Navy and black CAN be worn together

  • Less is not more

  • Double denim is a do and a tongue twister

  • Raiding your grandma’s closet is probably a good idea (think kitten heels, loose layers & statement gold accessories) Grannycore is a thing

  • Use a bag big enough to carry a laptop, an umbrella and a spare jacket

  • Invest in a camel overcoat. Actually, invest in a few. (Like this, this or this)

  • Structured bags in unanticipated colors are a must have

  • Large sunglasses can be worn day or night if you’re cool enough

  • Mix vintage with newer pieces for an interestingly unique ensemble

  • You can never go wrong with jeans and a tailored blazer

  • Leather mules are snazzy. Patent leather is a plus

Ah, I think that covers it for now.

Our Happiness Lies in Our Own Hands

In recent months, I have experienced as I watched from a distance, someone else’s life. In my thoughts, I am in a sort of very long trip that just will not seem to stop. And without ever having something taken-apart from innumerable cups of black/green tea to stay awake after many sleepless nights. Natural high, as it is also referred to as beautiful. It’s a strange thing; adrenaline. It is one of the most uncomfortable feelings that I know, because usually it is accompanied by a large dose of nerves. And that means; trembling knees, a lid that just will not stop vibrating and the Russian language that seems suddenly very difficult — and stuttering in a tearing rush talk included. But, I would not be archer if I was not slightly addicted to adrenaline. For how uncomfortable I feel, also when the nerves take over my body as much as I return to my bed would want to crawl on exciting moments, and how scary I find new things sometimes.

I hear you think; what the hell have you been up to, Irma?! Where you got such a kick out of it?! Well, the big story of it I will tell you soon, because I’m still in the middle of the whole adventure. A bit weird, I know. But seriously, there’s something I can tell already. And that is a lesson. Without lecturing or to sound like a smart ass, I want to share something. It may sound like an open door which I unceremoniously flick but bear with me. I do not know what possessed through me, but in the last few months I have a sort of ‘all or nothing’ feeling. And that means that I was attacked by a powerful force, which I had long not felt. And that was again the result that I no longer dreamed about the things I want, but suddenly, I added action, determination and motivation to my vocabulary. A giant step in the right direction, which I achieved in a personal goal and — perhaps more importantly — realized that your happiness really does lies in your own hands.

Nobody is going to make your dreams on a platter for you, no one can conjure that your dreams come true just like that, except you. You’re the only one who can choose to go the safe way, or to challenge yourself and show what you got. You are the boss of your own life! Without fear, without any doubts or uncertainties, and full of conviction in that what you want to achieve. If you go with that setting and full of positive thoughts go to work — it may just so happen that your dreams might start coming true. Thus. Grandma has spoken. 🙂

Thoughts on Being in My Early 30s

Every birthday is a blessing. Truth is, I feel much younger than what I imagined 32 to be.

Here are some of my thoughts on what I’ve learned being in my early 30s.

32 years young. It’s been said that you are the average of the 5 people you spend most of your time with. So make sure you spend time with people who are full of life and inspire you.

Looking younger. Wearing less makeup really helps. I’ve noticed that I look much younger if I wear less bold lip colors, though I love a deep red lip. I don’t dress very conservatively. I like to keep my outfits casual chic with some sass.

Take care of your skin. This should be my number one. Truth is, keeping my skin super hydrated does wonders. I avoid direct sunlight for long periods of time, especially if I’m not wearing sunscreen. I drink LOTS of water each and every day. I’m thinking of sharing my 32 beauty secrets in a few weeks!

Stress less, feel younger. Stress takes years off your life, but you could be adding years back by taking responsibly of controlling your own actions and learning when to let go. Forgiveness is power and resentment is poison. Listen to your body, it’s never wrong. My best way tip to shake off stress is to get exercise. Gym, yoga, jogging are some of my favorite go-to stress relievers. Over the years I’ve noticed that my body needs regular physical activity (every day) to feel my best.

Fine lines. These are proof that I smile and laugh a lot! But in all honesty, I really only have a few around my eyes, and they appear while I smile.

Know when to say NO. This has become much easier with age. NO to uncomfortable situations, societal or peer pressures, and I know when and how to remove myself without feeling guilty.

Memories = Happiness. Creativity, taking time off, working less so that I can create more memories is what drives my happiness levels waayy up!

Spotify 24/7. Ever since my teens years I’ve been a music addict but now it’s more soothing to my soul, like lighting a candle or taking a warm bath with sparkling juice. Haha.

I won’t be a “young” mom. And I’ve always been fine with that, even though my mom had me by age 30! It’s a different world we live in now, everything is in God’s hands and will happen when it’s meant to.

Love where you live. Truth is, there’s no such thing as the “perfect place” in which to live. All cities/towns/villages have pros and cons. You just have to find the place with the ones that suit you best and call it home.

Plan less, enjoy more. I used to be a big planner, and now I barely plan. I’ll only do it if it’s absolutely necessary for things such as projects, deadlines or trips.

Love what you do. We live in a world where we can be creative to find ways to work outside of the typical corporate office setting. I was in that once, and I knew it wasn’t for me. Followed my gut feeling, trusted in God’s plan and here I am. Happy with what I do and where I do it from.

Take care of your body. I started when I was in my mid twenties. So glad I started then. Keeping my body healthy is crucial if I want to be able to have good consistent energy throughout the day, everyday.

Get your 7-9 hours of sleep. I feel my best when I sleep about 8 hours. Though these days I don’t always have the opportunity to get enough every night.

You are what you eat. I eat a paleo diet for the most part but I don’t really eat much meat. If I eat any meat it’s grass-fed or free-range. At restaurants, often times I go for chicken or fish, and always choosing the best quality available. I rarely eat gluten-free baked goods, and on occasion I eat pasta, but I like to make it myself.

Stand your ground. I don’t follow the majority. If it’s a Netflix show that’s amazing, and everyones watching, then that’s ok, lol. There’s so much marketing pressure these days to try botox and fillers (is that the same thing?). I don’t allow the pressure to get to me. I don’t let it bother me.

Adulting. It can be tough, but it can also be really fun. Once you gain some life experience after college and truly experience ups and downs, you have the power and perspective to make your 30’s be the best decade of your life!

My closet is refined. It has taken me years to get to this point, and it’s still got a ways to go. I go for quality fabrics over quantity or something I’ll only wear once. I shop for basics and classics, pieces that will always be good to wear (even if they go in and out of style).

Interior space matters. I want my home to look beautiful and be comfortable for everyone. I have extensive experience in fashion design, and it’s something of an addiction to me. Love seeing my ideas and work come to fruition, plus I’m more productive in a clean, well-organized space.

Projects always take 2-4x longer than you think. It can be so frustrating. I’ve learned to budget 2x longer for all projects. That way I feel way less stressed. Now, just don’t procrastinate on getting started!

I’m a “new” blogger. I struggle with how to tie this into my Instagram feed sometimes. The blog is a great outlet for creative topics and I’m gonna work on posting more here in 2019!

Go with your gut feeling. It’s so true when they say that women have a sixth sense. I believe it because I use it all the time and it works great.

Regret is poison. Have no regret. Once an event is long gone you can’t beat yourself up for it. It’s best to learn from it and know how to face it next time around.

You are the product of your decisions. You are also the product of your experiences and the people you surround yourself with. Choose wisely and stick to your guiding principles by following your moral compass.

Confidence is sexy. Believe in yourself, let go of any fear or insecurity. You, as you are is beautiful and unique. That’s a superpower we each have. So use it!

What It’s Really Like Living with SAD

A Note From The Editor: While it’s never easy or comfortable to bring the deep issues that many of us go through, I am no less convinced that certain issues must be discussed in order to increase awareness, foster healing and to, perhaps most importantly, remind ourselves that we are not alone. The following is a blog post about understanding SAD. I hope this encourages healthy discussion and motivates those who are struggling to reach out for help. 

Living with social anxiety is not as easy as it might seem.

“Social anxiety is the fear of interaction with other people that brings on self-consciousness, feelings of being negatively judged and evaluated, and, as a result, leads to avoidance. Social anxiety is the fear of being judged and evaluated negatively by other people, leading to feelings of inadequacy, inferiority, embarrassment, humiliation, and depression.” Dr. Thomas A. Richards provides this definition here. No one fully understands social anxiety, though, unless they live through it. So what exactly is it like to live with social anxiety?

Social anxiety is feeling alone in a crowded room because you are too afraid to talk to anyone. It is standing awkwardly in the dark corner of a party, trying desperately to will yourself to take a step forward, to join a group, to dance. But you can’t, because fear has taken over your body. It is the fear of being rejected by others, the fear of making a fool of yourself. Social anxiety takes over, and you cannot do a thing about it, no matter how badly you want to.

Social anxiety is feeling alone in smaller crowds too. You sit in a small group of people, and you want to join in the conversation. But you can’t. You can’t because you just know that if you speak, your breath will get caught in your throat, and you will choke. Or you will stumble over your words like you always do when you’re nervous, and some high-ranking member of the group will look at you just the way you hate. It’s that condescending, “why did you even bother speaking?” look. You remind yourself that look may not even be real. Perhaps your social anxiety is making you paranoid. It probably is. Or maybe it’s not…you simply cannot tell. So you submit to the anxiety, and you keep your mouth shut, even if you have a lot to say.

Social anxiety is also fear welling up inside of you when you are with only one other person. You’re sitting with them in a restaurant or a classroom or a mall. And you look down to see your hands beginning to shake. You don’t know what to say to the other person. Will they think you’re boring? Will they think you’re rude? You wonder if you should try to speak. But then you remember how strange your voice is, and how you can’t keep a conversation going. You suddenly become aware of your body as well. They must be watching how you nervously flick your hair back every couple of minutes, or how awkwardly you sit and cross your legs. Now you tense up. And you’re sure you look even weirder now, but you can’t help it. You tense up because you are afraid. You are afraid of interacting with just one person, and you hate it.

And social anxiety is nobody believing your fear is real. It is your irritated family and teachers and acquaintances telling you to simply get over it, as if that is possible. As if you haven’t tried hard enough already to live as the more confident people do. You wish they could understand that you want to make the fear go away instantaneously, but you can’t. Something in your life triggered this burden, and it is a part of you now. Social anxiety is wondering why some people don’t seem to understand your fear.

But social anxiety is not all doom and gloom. It is those times when you somehow force yourself to speak, to relax, to function as if you are not scared. It is the sense of pride and accomplishment you feel when push yourself past your limits, and you are okay. It is those times when the group acknowledges you, and values your presence. It is knowing that you are working hard to become the best version of yourself. You know you may never be an extrovert, but you accept that, and you work on decreasing your fear every day. It is knowing that you matter, no matter how socially anxious you are. It is being able to help others with their anxiety, and letting them know that they are not alone. Perhaps a wonderful friendship comes from this interaction too. Your fear is not continuously active at all hours of the day, and social anxiety is living for the moments when you are at peace, whether it be while you are alone or in a group that accepts and loves you for who you are. We all have these groups, and social anxiety is taking advantage of those moments when you are not afraid, and finding these people.

Social anxiety is often overlooked and misunderstood. For many years now, I have struggled with social anxiety. I’ve come to realize that making friends who encourage and support me is crucial to overcoming my fears. I encourage everyone to be kinder to others. Remember that everyone fights their own battle, and for 7% of Americans social anxiety is that battle. The fear is real, and cannot be simply willed away at any given point. But when we do open up, when we do take a leap and interact with others, don’t judge us for how we act or the things we say; we already do this enough by ourselves. Just be kind is all I can say.

The phrase “a little kindness goes a long way” will always ring true. And for those living with social anxiety: know that you are not alone. Realize that everything is okay and will be okay. Whenever you feel embarrassed, remember you don’t need to be ashamed of who are you. You are loved and you are important, no matter what. Never forget that.

How to Always Think Positive: Thoughts on Creating Your Own Sunshine

When things in life are not going the way I want, I stop and ask myself, “what action can I take right now to have things go better?” Or I ask myself “what positive action(s) could I take to get me to living the life I want to live?”

We all have goals. We all have dreams. When you know EXACTLY what you want (short-term goal), and you are focused on that specific goal, you will find ways to get there much quicker rather than just having some vague idea.

Not every day is clear skies and happy days, and starting with step-one could be the hardest! But the good part is that we all have a choice! Did you know that its estimated that the average adult makes about 35,000 decisions a day!? Sounds insane right?! Well, in a big way, our lives are a direct reflection of these countless decisions!

So… Are you going to wake up and go to work? Are you going to wake up and go to the gym? Are you going to start your day slow and enjoy that latte? I don’t know about you guys, but I like to brush my teeth before I do any of these things.

Point is, YOU have the power to choose and the power to create! So what’s holding you back?

Some of us however may say that we do not have the freedom or luxury to make all of our decisions because they are dependent on others (family, finances, bosses, etc.). Well, if that’s the case, then sit down and think of ways you can free yourself, and no I am not talking about leaving your family or job, lol.

To me this has always been about using my passions to create my own sunshine. What does that mean to you? It means start working on that passion project you’ve been saving for “later.” The time is now, and the sooner you realize that you need to be proactive towards creating your own happiness, the sooner you can enjoy the sunshine!

5 Ways To Create Your Own Sunshine

An Attitude of Gratitude

This is a mindset and a lifestyle choice that can change your whole life! Some keep a journal and for others it’s counting the blessings of each day before bed or in the morning. You’ll start to see things differently. Instead of complaining about situations, you will see solutions better. Plus, when you are grateful you tend to share that positive energy! There’s so much happiness to be had, that spending time being sad or negative is just not worth the time!

Love & Kindness

Show others what its like to love. Show yourself what it’s like to love. Give yourself more credit. Give someone the gift of your presence and really listen to them talk. Be kind to yourself and give yourself the gift of peace. Let go of what you can’t control. Tell someone they’re awesome and tell them why. Trust me, it feels so good! 

Finding Fulfillment

It could be your job, it could be your kids or a pet, it could a passion project. Ask yourself, what fulfills you everyday and how passionate are you about it. These days I feel fulfilled with my writing. Waking up knowing that what I create is all on me, is one of my favorite feelings ever! Believe in your goals, believe in yourself.

Supporting Others

Help someone in need. It really helps to get out of your own head by focusing on others. Have empathy toward others and their journey. Don’t judge or criticize. Show your compassion and willingness to help.

Staying Fit & Eating Healthy

If your mind and your emotions are weak, you probably aren’t walking on sunshine. I’ve been there myself. One thing that has helped me was changing my diet and getting into the routine of working out. I don’t believe in “diets.” I believe in eating healthy. To me that means about 85% non-packaged or pre-made foods. I’m talking about fruits, veggies, lean grass-fed meats, wild fish, nuts, and a few grains. I love to cook from scratch! If you know me on a personal level, you know I don’t need caffeine to stay awake! Despite that, I still really love my cappuccino’s!
