HOW TO WEAR YELLOW THIS FALL

I love pink as much as the next dude, but after having my Instagram infiltrated with millennial pink for the last year and a half, I found myself referring to it as "Pepto Bismol puke". Can we please move on and diversify our feeds already? 

Yellow is my latest thing. It feels super fresh after seeing so much pink. It's a colour that represents happiness and energy. It's the perfect balance as we head into the dark cloudy days of fall and as Off-White has shown us, it looks major when paired with black. 

Add a pop of yellow to your wardrobe this fall with a single standout piece via sunglasses, a cozy sweatshirt, a bag, or a pair of shoes. 

Most importantly, have fun, be yourself and promise me you won't wear millennial pink again until it's not in fashion.

My Productive Morning Routine feat. Melitta Coffee

Melitta heritage coffee maker 1 - woahstyle.com.JPG

An hour before work your alarm goes off. You hit snooze. Not once, but twice. Forty minutes is enough time to shower and get ready right? 

On your way to work, you're groggy, cranky and irritable. I feel you. That was me for most of my adult life. 

I started reading about articles on how the most successful people are morning risers and get more done by 9am then most of us doing a day. They aptly call it, CEO mornings. I mean, if that’s the case then it was worth trying it out right? 

I began converting myself to an early bird by retiring for bed at 9pm so I could be ready to conquer the day bright and early at 5am. The first couple of days sucked but soon my body got used to the routine and I looked forward to it. 

Sadly, I wasn’t able to keep at it past a month but if I learned something hugely important from my CEO mornings in how to structure successfully structure my day. These days I’m up at 7am but I stick to my morning routine almost every single day.

1. MORNING JOURNALING

Writing down a conscious stream of thought right when you wake up is said to help your mind and keep you on track with your personal goals. I’ve been doing this for about a month now and I find on the days that I skip it, I feel like I’m lacking direction. Aim to fill three pages.

2. WATER

Hydrate your body with a tall glass of water upon getting out of bed. I get night sweats (ew I know) so I need water first thing. I actually won’t even drink my morning coffee without having water first. Bonus points for adding lemon or apple cider vinegar to your H2O.

3. EXERCISE

My retired neighbor Bert said it best, “motion is lotion”, LOL. Keep your body active with at least 30 mins of exercise a day. Go with what works for you - HIIT, dancing, walking, strength training, it’s all for the better good.

4. GET READY

Whether your working from home or working in an office with others, get ready for your day like you mean it. Run a brush through your hair and put on some cute shoes that add a skip to your step. If you look good and feel good, chances are you’ll be more confident and happier.

5. BREAKFAST

Having a protein filled breakfast in the morning will keep you fuller longer and it’ll keep your mind from wondering about what sugary snacks hiding in the kitchen. The proper fuel for your body means you’re not eating as much in between meals.

6. COFFEE

This is an obvious one. Instead of caffeinating myself first thing in the morning I wait until after I’ve exercised and showered before having my first cup. My current obsession is the Melitta Heritage Pour Over series. All you have to do is pour boiling water into the top filter with your freshly ground coffee beans and voila. I throw the filter and beans into the compost once I’m done because I read somewhere that compost loves coffee. (Who doesn’t?) Plus, it hardly takes up space in my kitchen and looks super cute on display.

There's nothing better than a vacation to clear the mind and get away from it all. As we start to plan our next trip to Chicago in the fall, I'm already thinking about what cozy clothes I'll be packing.

Fall is probably my favourite season (sweater weather OR is it actually leather weather? LOL) but packing all of those bulky knits into a carry-on can be challenging.

I have two life-changing travel hacks for you: 

  1. trail sized beauty items
  2. packing cubes

You know those samples you get from Sephora? Save them in a baggy because they'll come in handy for your next trip. 

True story, I once spent over $100 on basics like tiny toothpaste, travel-friendly mouthwash, a small foldable hairbrush, and a bunch of other personal care stuff. Shits expensive so save those trial size samples!

If you haven't already tried packing cubes, you don't know what you're missing. They're life changing! Psst - you can fit more stuff into your carry on because it all gets packed away so neatly.

Having a nifty little carry on like that one from AWAY helps too. I find my stuff doesn't get knocked around anymore and it's much easier to pack. It's also held up incredibly well considering it's been to Iceland twice and all over the U.S and Canada. 

One last thing I love to travel with is a generously sized handbag to fit all of my essentials. Aside from the obvious passport and cardholder, I have a cosmetics bag containing my Bite Beauty Agave Lip Mask, facial mist, CHANEL hand cream, sanitizer wipes, Advil, and tissues. I try to have a reusable water bottle with me when I can, my iPad, headphones, a battery pack, and some vegan protein bars. I always travel with snacks just in case! 

Stay tuned for my future blog post on HOW TO PACK A CARRY ON!
