I thought it would be fun to use today’s post to get to know you a little bit better. Since March, everyone’s work situations have changed so much. I’m curious to know what work is like for you right now, so would like to ask you a few questions! Feel free to answer as many (or as few) of them in the comments.
What’s Work Like For You?
- What do you do for a living?
- What’s your work situation like right now? (Working from home, going into the office, etc. etc.)
- What is the best part of that?
- The worst part?
- What is something big that you working on right now?
- What are you most proud of right now?
- What’s a big goal you have for this year?
I’ll go first!
1. What do you do for a living?
Full time blogger / influencer / podcaster!
2. What’s your work setup like right now?
I work from home which is something I’ve always done, but I used to get a change of scenery at least once a week… I’d have meetings in the city, work out of Soho House, or just go to a coffee shop to not be at home! Lately I have been working from my dining table instead of my desk. I don’t know why but it feels like a change of scenery (and a better decision than working from the couch which always leads to being less productive.
3. What is the best part of that?
Tyrion, good snacks, freedom, not having a boss, and being able to do a mid-day workout.
4. The worst part?
Sometimes the days just feel like they stretch into nights and I am not sure what day it is! I also wear a lot of hats and sometimes I forget to do the important stuff (i.e. accounting, invoicing, filling out vendor paperwork). The amount of time I spend filling out paperwork (usually to get paid, which is important lol) for the brands I work with can be really time consuming and annoying!
5. What is something big that you working on right now?
Right now, gift guide planning is probably my biggest / most time consuming project. I want to make sure my gift guides are really unique and interesting. (This year’s are all price point focused and they start going live 11/10!)
6. What are you most proud of?
I’m really proud of my last Amazon collection! And my more recent post about not wanting kids. I was really nervous to publish it but the responses were so wonderful, and it’s makes me happy knowing I’ve helped normalize something like that, and/or helped someone feel less alone.
7. What’s a big goal you have for this year?
Right now I’m really working on establishing better boundaries between work and life. Work is going really well but life is… a little blah. There’s not a lot to do to fix that, but when I’m stuck at home at night I will often reach for my laptop to do more work as opposed to a book, movie, or going out for a walk. I’m also very excited for my pajama collab (more on that on my highlights on Instagram) and my Spring dresses with Amazon the Drop. One thing I realized this year was how much I enjoy working on product collaborations. I’m learning a lot and it’s also a lot of fun.
