Don’t get used to this regular-posts-type thing that I’ve been able to maintain in the past month or so. It’s still only the very beginning of the year, and honestly, the most productive I’ll ever be. You’ll be back to one post per month by April- I promise.

Nothing much has been happening, and I’m kind of enjoying the peacefulness of it all, for once. Last year around this time, I was drowning in emails and desperately looking for all excuses to escape my digital cell of a life. A lot of people, especially those ‘hustling’ via social media tend to glorify the idea of being busy, and working hard- and if that’s the kind of shit that’ll motivate you, then you won’t find it by reading anything I have to say.

Don’t get me wrong, I used to be there too. At 22, I felt like I had my whole life planned out. I knew exactly where I wanted to be at 24, then 25, and 28- but guess what, I could care less about how old I am anymore and what I’ll be doing in 6 months, let alone next year. I’ve found comfort in the fact that you can plan your life out a certain way, but life just has its own plans for you too. The best form of medicine to keep you sane through it all is just to take it with a grain of salt.

January was quite the month to start off 2019. It felt like it was eight weeks long as opposed to four. And now that’ll make me feel like February is only here for a week or so.

One of my highlights in New York was linking up with these two creatives making a difference in sustainable fashion by launching a re/up-cycled denim brand straight out of college. Morgan and Greg were such a fresh of breath air to have a conversation with as it seems like they were truly invested in what they were doing and the differences that they were making despite how labor intensive it is in customizing pretty much each product that they produce. As a partnership with them, I picked out these vintage up-cycled denim pair that was color-blocked and linked together with belt loops that are often overlook when you think about recycling denim.

Shopbop Sale Picks

I've always been a big fan of Shopbop, especially during the sales periods. Spring is just around the corner and I've linked quite a few things that I'm currently keeping in my cart waiting for this. It was pretty mild this winter for me, so I haven't been able to play around with much layerings or anything like that. It certainly does make me gravitate towards more florals and color-block prints to add depth to my outfits.

Look out for pieces that are labeled *Key Styles* and you can get 15% off $200+, 20% off $500+, or 25% off $800+ orders that include both sales and full price items.

Lob haircut, Tokyo hairstylists, MINX Harajuku, New York personal style blogger - Press to Resume / 012019 - FOREVERVANNY.com
Up until last year, I was getting a haircut every 2 years or so, and they were really cheap ones for like 30$ in Chinatown in New York. Now that I've been fully committed to having a lob (long-bob) because it just makes my life so much easier to maintain (wash and dry every 2-3 days), I get a fresh trim every 6 months. I also think finding a great hair dresser is really important to ease into a haircut routine because I no longer feel that anxiety right before chopping off my hair. If you're in Tokyo, check out MINX in Omotesando/Harajuku area.
