My Home Office Area

Working on my own online business allows me to be able to work from anywhere (coffee shops, hotels, my home, co-working spaces). Sometimes I am productive in any of them, but there are periods of time, when I can only concentrate in my home office. I am not one of those "girly" women, who need flowers, fashion books and candles all around my office (even though I do appreciate them outside my office space), but what I like to have in my office areas is simple minimalistic design and seamless motivational signs. Thanks to I was able to customize my signs for my second home office area exactly how I wanted it - from material to color, shape and font, all of which you choose directly on their website. With you can design everything from exclusive company signs and advertising signs to attractive engraved door signs and interior signs.

From work to fun with b.tempt'd

This post is sponsored by b.tempt'd, but opinions are my own :) 
You know that my lifestyle is very hectic and unpredictable, which can take its toll on my stress levels and overall health. I take this seriously and try to take care of my mind and body well-being as much as I can. Luckily, I live in Venice beach, where there are countless options to unwind and take care of your balance - from sunset walks to biking, paddle boarding or exploring local neighborhood stores. We all know that staying active is the best way to have a healthy mind. My new favorite activity is Bird scooters - a fun way of transportation, that makes you feel like you are a child again. And with my favorite lingerie brand b.tempt'd, I can finally do it all almost immediately because I don't need to change.  b.tempt'd is a lingerie brand that not only fits your body, but also your lifestyle. Their bras are comfortable for anything - work or fun, plus the brand is heavily encouraging us to take care of ourselves. I wear their bras under a t-shirt for meetings and for a light activity right after; it looks and feels amazing in any situation.
Here I am wearing the b.tempt'd Modern Method Bralette - perhaps the most comfortable bralette I have ever worn, because it still provides the support of a regular bra, yet feels cozy without the extra weight. And it looks so cute - I deliberately want to show off as much of it as I can. That's why I paired it with a loose contrasted tank top - and you know me, I love black and white combination more than anything.

Self-Care with Biore

I have been talking about self care more and more on the blog, mainly because that's what this year is all about for me - taking care of my mind, body and soul without being too obsessive about it. I am humbled to keep partnering with the companies that are on the same mission as I am, and they introduce me and my audience to new helpful products. Today's blog post is about Biore - the brand, which has innovative products that really work, with superior technology, unique ingredients, and unexpected sensorial solutions that targets the root of all skin problems - the evil clogged pore.
I am not a huge mask fan, it takes too much time and is always messy for me, but Biore One Minute Self Heating Mask is the product I fell in love with immediately. First of all, it's only one minute, second - it doesn't harden, and rinses fast and clean - hence, no mess! I love the way it heats up on the face, such a cool sensation! Plus it's infused with natural charcoal, which draws out pore clogging dirt, oil and impurities in just 60 seconds, and it's 2.5x times more effective than a basic cleanser! Handy compact packaging makes it a great product to travel with. What is there not to love? :)

Worry-Free with Kleenex Wet Wipes

I am always on-the-go - whether it's running errands, taking meetings, travelling, working, shooting, or exploring. These days my family is visiting from another side of the globe, so I literally need 48 hours to stay on top of my busy lifestyle and time with them. Balancing everything leaves no time even for some basic hygiene like washing hands regularly, and I am so happy that my new Kleenex Wet Wipes help me stay germ free and clean throughout the process - now available at Target! 
Kleenex was always known for their facial tissues, but now they are extending their legacy to a new generation that enjoys getting their hands dirty and keep moving forward with new products - Kleenex Wet Wipes. They are meant to be used every time you would like a refreshing clean to rejuvenate yourself - whether at home or on-the-go, on hands or on your face! They have 3 types of wipes (only $1.49 each at Target!) - gentle clean, germ removal and sensitive. 
I use them throughout the day - in between meetings, before and after a meal in my car (guilty of that!), during extended periods of time in public places and on my face after a long day. Get them at your local Target or on
