Wow! When I reflect back at the last month, it still leaves me speechless at how much the entire world has changed in just a matter of 30 days. Even though we are all for the most part at home unable to leave except for a few exceptions, it is still very important for us to balance our busy everyday lives. With all of this in mind, we have put together a guide to help you to keep your glow with some of our favorite activities that allow you to relax and tale care of yourself.
It is important to keep your routine as much as possible as part of staying productive. One essential part of your routine should be getting dressed when you get up in the morning. Just because you are quarantined at home does not mean that you should sit in your pj's all day. Choose cute yet comfy clothes that will keep you comfortable throughout the day. Some favorites of ours are cozy sweaters, fun rompers, and cute dresses. Check out our collection of casual dresses for a few new favorite looks. Light makeup and a messy bun and you have a great quarantine look that will have you feeling confident and you wont have to worry when someone wants to video chat!
