Day Dreaming In Denim: Let’s get down to business

Happy Wednesday my loves! I hope you are all having a productive, fulfilling week. I have been getting a lot of questions on how I balance my full time job and my side business, so I figured I would take advantage of this post and fill you in! All of my boss babes know that the hustle never stops! You’re constantly on the go, creating connections, brainstorming, and planning your week to stay ahead of the game. For me, growing in the beauty business has really disciplined my time management. But, the first five years of being in the business, I completely exhausted myself because I refused to say no to anything. I soon learned that I was drowning myself with a schedule I couldn’t handle, and I was actually getting less accomplished. I hope these tips help motivate you into starting your dream business, or help you organize the one you currently have!

One thing I learned over time was to stop relying on my memory. Writing things down throughout the day gives me more room to retain information, and the space I need to get creative with my job. I always have a pen and notepad nearby in case an idea pops into my head, or I have to make a phone call later in the day. Its a small notion that makes a huge difference for me. Sometimes I’ll get an idea from a client for my blog or someone mentions a new podcast/song I have to listen to that I don’t want to forget about.

Create a simple schedule. Map out the things you want to focus on Monday-Sunday and be realistic about it. I pencil in the days I am working my full time job and schedule blog posts, content, and side jobs around it. You don’t have to be skilled in excel, all you need to do is write down each day of the week and create small windows of time that you want to get certain things done. Consistency is everything! Every week, as long as you’re working toward each of your goals – it is going to pay off, I promise you. It is the little things that add up! Your week doesn’t always go as planned, of course. But if you know you have something written down to accomplish that day you’ll be more likely to do it.

When you create a solid schedule you are holding yourself accountable. Talking to others about your idea will help you in the long run. You’re verbally holding yourself accountable and getting different ideas from others. This may sound cliche, but, the law of attraction is a real thing!! When you’re talking about ideas and brainstorming with others, you are speaking it into existence. When you have a great idea, obsess over it!

Play to your strengths, and be honest with yourself about your weakness. Unfortunately, I am not skilled at everything, I wish I was (it would save me a lot of $$$ LOL). Knowing my weakness has helped me get things done more efficiently. I was never good with organization, until I reached out to someone that helped me get organized. I was never good at color, until I took a ton of classes that gave me the confidence to do a corrective color. There will always be someone out there that can do your job better than you, so asking for help will only benefit you in the long run.

This is just a topic I am super passionate about that I wanted to share with you.. I would love to hear your business stories and ideas. I am working on creating this platform so we can share our experiences and support, and empower one another! Leave a comment below or message me @LaurenLoSacco. Thank you for reading!

Accessorizing In The Summer

The summer is in full swing and the weather is heating up! July happens to be my favorite month out of the year! Not only because it is my birth month (yay!), but because we still have a ton of time to lay out on the beach with warm sand in between our toes. With that being said, I am sharing all of my favorite accessories to amp up your summer looks. Let’s get right to it!

 

I absolutely love a good summer hat. Bad hair day? Hat. Need to cover up that zit? Hat. Need to cover up your sins from the night before? Umm, hat. Well, maybe not, but you get the point. You can elevate each look with an array of different shapes and styles. If you are like me, you will most likely end up with the same hat in about fourteen different colors. Linked below are a few different looks that I like to play with.

 

Gold, stacked necklaces are a trend that I am loving right now. It’s an easy way to dress up a plain white t-shirt and make your jewelry collection more customizable. We all have those days that we wake up to some serious bed head, five minutes before we have to hail a cab to the office for a meeting. Throwing on a few pieces is an easy, creative way to play up your look and pull your outfit together. I enjoy stacking pieces that have significant meaning to me. I have always had a strong sense of faith, so I like to incorporate that into the necklaces I wear. I grew up in a Christian household, but my parents allowed me to develop my connection to Jesus naturally. Each year I experienced a deeper connection and would rely on the power of prayer to help me get through any hardship I was experiencing. So, when I saw these pieces from Moonchild I made an immediate purchase. One of the chains is an emblem of Jesus, the other is prayer hands. Playing with the length of the chains are vital to giving you some dimension on your décolleté. The necklaces I chose for you will give you that layered look without much effort, allowing you to add in your necklace of value.

Last but not least, nothing screams summer more than a straw bag! These purses are so much fun to rock through this season into the fall. There are so many options of colors, sizes and silhouettes. Jane Birkin was on to the trend in the early 70’s, when she was spotted casually strolling through the streets of Paris (cool fact). I hope you enjoy shopping the styles I picked out for you!

Let all that you do, be done in Love - xo Lauren
