The best DAMN OTK BOOTS + RECOVERY over rest

Having a major splurge vs. steal moment. 

Y'all know I'm all about the steal. Although I'm moving away from fast fashion, I am super supportive of finding a better more affordable alternative to the expensive.

So these are my pride and fucking joy. 

The OTK boots, from TARGET basically a Stuart Weitzman knock-off. 

They are SO comfortable a perfect heel height and I feel like a sex kitten when I wear them. Truly. It's the one thing that people really notice when you walk in the room, and they can't call you slutty because they cover you up!

I'll throw on a sweater dress, pair it over tight jeans, or with a tight dress and my jean jacket. It's guaranteed sexy, and when you're comfortable on top, you feel good in these too because they're so soft, and cover most parts of da leg.



Oh and I also wanted to shout this out to you guys because I feel like you may feel me on this.

I was listening to Tim Ferriss the other day, per usual (I've written about his podcast here and I also have a podcast you can listen to here) and someone asked him about taking time to rest. He mentioned that he has his passion, and he finds it hard to take 'chill' time for himself. He said he knows the benefit of it, but doesn't know how to relax. 

I'm like wait did you go in my brain and send Tim a question because I HAVE NO CHILL. I give zero fucks but have no chill. Justin always says, I'm cool - but not chill". 

So I was interested, like how do I chill? I know most people watch their shows, or something like that but I sort of hate TV.  I know I sound pretentious when I say that but I just don't enjoy it. Finding ways for me to unwind and relax is hard. I usually do it when I'm traveling, or yoga is a chill time for me.

But I LOVED what Tim Ferriss said.

He said to think about relaxing as 'recovery'.

Like the workout terminology, recovery SO when you go hard, you go hard and when you take that time off, it's key for you to RECOVER so you can go hard again. 

Good, no? I love a good fitness/wellness reference. 

So recovery mode, for me is stretching, foam rolling, reading (Tools of the TItans right now), things like that. Chatting with friends probably as a #1. That's real SOUL recovery.

How do you recover? Any good tips? Let em know. 

Chat soon sistahs!

The best damn holiday shoes EVER (and they're from TARGET)

Hi my loves!

How are you? 

How's the week? 

Feeling a bit overwhelmed with the holidays with all there is to do!? Same. I am just trying to remember that it only happens once a year, and that it always gets done.

Last night I went to this intimate panel discussion with Childish Gambino (Because of the Internet, Parks and Recreation, Atlanta) and it was SO COOL. It's always amazing to be around super talented, smart people that are doing real cool shit.

It was fascinating to hear and learn from such creative, inspiring and smart people.

Donald Glover, recently worked to create PHAROS, an experience in Joshua Tree that incorporated virtual reality, music and community. One of the concepts from the event, was to not have your CELL PHONE. Crazy right? No one there brought their phone into the experience, in order to create a more engaged audience and more personal experience. The team at Microsoft and Donald really did something amazing, new and exciting and I was so excited to be a part of the party. 

I LOVE. So vibing more of those opportunities out right meow! 

But this post, I'm SO DAMN EXCITED TO SHARE WITH YOU.

I got these boots from Target a week ago, and I've been giddy ever since knowing you guys will LOVE. 

Thus far I've gotten people that have stopped me in the streets asking about them. They're perfect for holiday, so chic and oh-so expensive looking.

I mean for real. I was in Laguna last weekend and rich ass Laguna moms were like drooling over them.

I mean the embellishment do you die? I LOVE. 

Also these photos were crazy because they're exactly the vision I had for these shoes.

CAN'T.

The heel height is just right, they are a bit edgy, and it's good to mix up your shoe game a bit in the winter from the classic boot. 



Target for real has the best stuff right now, so I have more to share with you later next week! Ya'll know I'm about that affordable luxury :) especially with the holidays here I am feeling OH SO broke. 

I love ya! Let me know what's happening with you?! These boots, do you like?

xoxo
