Reminder: Schedule Downtime

As inspirational women, we can all get so caught up in helping others that sometimes we forget to help ourselves. Am I right? This post is to remind you of something very important - schedule downtime and make some time for the most important person in your life (hint: it's YOU!). Because you can't share your inspiration with the world if you're not first inspired yourself.

This weekend I gave myself permission to relax and renew my inspiration a bit following a whirlwind of a week! I took two days to do only things that filled my happiness cup (and take a lot of naps!). Take some inspiration from this and share with us how you'll be scheduling some downtime into your coming week.

Stopped by the grand opening of Le Mervetty in Beverly Hills on Thursday where I enjoyed an Illy espresso and some gluten free macarons.

A hike through Griffith Park and brunch with a dear friend at Cafe Gratitude to kick off Saturday. Then headed over to the Burke Williams spa in Pasadena for a few hours in the jacuzzi, steam room, and sauna.

Topped off the day by stopping by Chic Little Devil Stylehouse to pick out a dress for the Caress VMA pre-party at Beso Hollywood.

I was greeted at Chic Little Devil with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, loads of gorgeous dresses, and THIS VIEW!

Enjoying a glorious Sunday in Hollywood after the #AmpUpYourStyle brunch with Caress and Beso Hollywood. Thanks to Chic Little Devil Stylehouse for the Mac Duggal dress! I felt like a rockstar wearing my first ever bodycon dress!
