Always on the Run

February is full of hustles, although it is only two days shorter than any other months.. At this point, there is only a week and half left of February. I started to realize that I am already feeling burned out... I've been put too much stress and worries in my head during the last month of 2018. 
As much as I love to be always on the run and hustle, I love being a on top of what I do and being independent. There is nothing wrong with having a standards and expectations for what you do, but do not over work yourself. It is good to have time for yourself and stand back when its needed. I realized that I was too focus on keeping myself busy and occupied with work opportunities, not appreciating small little opportunities and tiny accomplishments. Funny story, I was catching up with an very old friend of mine from almost 10 years ago, she told me "I am very proud of you, you've came a very long to build who are today, you came from the bottom with nothing, your hustle inspired me." I was touched, this is why I love what I do, pushing myself to hustle harder and maybe run that extra mile in life. 
In the beginning of 2018, I have marked my goals to accomplish for the coming year. This is when fears come to play, in the last three months, I have gotten turned down by a couple big companies that I've been meaning and wanting to work with. I was disappointed with myself, constantly seeking out to find more options and opportunities. 
But guess what, the saying of "when one door closes, another opens". In my most disappointing and down times, a couple amazing opportunities opened up to me! I learned you have to keep moving and looking forward to the future, we often look so long and so regrefully upon the closed doors; which we do not see which other has open for us. It is good to take it slow and steady, you don't always need to be on the run or being a boss lady. Look around your surroundings, sometimes the doors are waiting for you to open. Don't always put yourself in pressure and expectations, expect the unexpected. Always ready and be on the run for changes to happen!
Blazer: Le Chateau
Coat: Sosken
Shoes: Aldo
This look incorporates the idea of boss lady essential, the blazer. I put a little twist in a regular boss lady blazer look. I did my little monthly shopping at Le Chateau the other day, I fell in love with this blazer, there is just way oo many ways you can style this blazer. I went from my regular size of xxs/xs at Le Chateau to a Small for this piece. 
Of course, the over the knees boots come to play in this look, reflecting being a trendy boss lady, not being afraid to stand out. There are many other ways this blazer can be styled, whether if it is with a trouser, dress skirt or jeans. But this is what stand out for me, also over the knees boots is an excuse for me to be able to wear dresses and skirt in the cold winter.
I am strong believer of hustle for what you want in life, never doubt it, nothing worth having comes easy. Keep hustling, all my boss ladies! 

Love,
Chloe

Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Nano & Small Review

Size: Nano Hardware: Silver Material: Grained calfskin Size Dimension: 8.75"x7"x4" Price: $2,585 CAD (+taxes) Interior: Tonal suede, no additional zipper/pocket Yes, I recently purchased the classic Saint Laurent Sac De Jour in the Nano size, I absolutely love it and used it way too often maybe. This is the black with silver hardware as well as in the material of pebbled grained calfskin. It come with detachable strap with lanyard clasp fastening. When I was purchasing the bag, I was deciding between the baby or nano size for a very long time. I like how the baby size have a zipper pocket inside, but the nano does not. But the reason why I went for the nano is because I like to wear most of bag cross body, just a lot easier to get around the city. The baby size looks very awkward and big on my body when I wear it cross body. Despite the cons of not having a zipper inside, I have no issue with it. Also, when you look at the nano, you probably think it

3 Lessons I Learned in 2018

A new year, a new chapter in life, 365 more new chances. Everyday is a day of lesson and changes. 2018 was a rough year for me, a year full of learning, especially learning from the mistakes of yesterday. Here's the three lessons that I learned in 2018:  1. Never Settle For Less It does not matter whether its relationship, career, friendships or purchases. Applying this idea in all aspects of life. Make sure to set your goal and standards for everything. In 2018, I've made some wrong investment and settling for less than you deserve. Often, we all know who we are, know what we want, and know what we deserve never settle for less. People always connect with this idea only to people. However, when it comes to career, I personally learned to never settle for less than your worth and what you deserve, and never force yourself to do what you don't like. When it come to purchasing, I've learned my lesson of never settle for a cheaper alternative. Always follow your
