Q&A

1. Three beauty must haves? Right now my three most favorite beauty products are Biologique Recherche Lotion P50- amazing for evening out skin tone, Elta MD Tinted Sunscreen/ Moisturizer- provides sun protection and gives just the right about of “tint” as a base layer to my daily makeup, and BeautyCoutner Lengthening Mascara- finally found a “clean” mascara I LOVE.

2. What is your dream job? Long story short- to be a designer! I go way way more on depth on that in this post here about my non-traditional college path and career dreams.

3. Any tips for time management? Good question! I am always looking to improve in the area of time management and finding balance between all my daily tasks/ commitments. I have found that one of the most beneficial “tools” for managing my time is making lists and setting realistic expectations for what I can get done in one day. I am constantly making lists on my phone of different things I need to get done and spreading them out between several categories- TO DO TODAY, TO DO TOMORROW, and FUTURE TO DO. I have found that prioritizing tasks/ events/ commitments this way keeps me on track and my priorities in line. Also by setting realistic expectations of what I can get done in one single day, I try my best not to overwhelm myself and give my self more grace. I used to make one long, long list of things to do but I found that not ever being able to “complete it” and just rolling over what I didn't get done to the next day left me feeling defeated at the end of the day and like I was never doing “enough.” By keeping my TO DO TODAY list more concise/ limited to the most important tasks, it feels so rewarding to be able to check everything off my list at the end of the day and feel prepared/ excited for the next day’s tasks.
