The Struggle is Real

I love my day job, I go to work and spend time with some of the greatest people I know. I work hard, launch campaigns and then come home to only a few hours left in the day to work on what I’ve wanted to since I got to work earlier that day – my blog. Blogging is an amazing hobby and a great way to express myself while keeping track of my day to day interests. Some are fortunate enough to turn blogging into a career, though starting out I believe it’s important to just work hard on content, and make sure you are writing for yourself – be authentic.

The struggle I am currently running into is  the ability to make enough time to work on solid content for my blog. As a working girl, I only have so many hours in the day to blog. My job doesn’t allow me to research all the things I love, and browse the web for ideas I want to post about. When I get home,  I literally have a couple hours at most to work on content, and that’s if I come right home from the office.  What I’m realizing is that I need to just make the time for myself every night to sit down and work on VitaBrillanti. I always regret when I wake up in the morning to an old post. I know I am not the only person who goes through this – not many people have the opportunity to simply blog for a living. For those of you experiencing this struggle, you are not alone!

Weekly Inspo 12.8

Winter has arrived. The city is officially freezing and all I want to do is cozy up, light some candles and watch HBO on demand. If only life was that simple where grownups could do that in the winter.

All I need are these Days of the Week undies from Net A Porter and my life will be complete.

Thank you to the following blogs for always inspiring me:

Rent The Runway

I don’t know many people – actually, anyone in New York City that has a wide variety of knock-out cocktail dresses on hand. My closet consists of working girl attire; cute, stylish, but nothing fancy enough to wear to a black tie event or a company party. Luckily, for all us girls who do not have this amazing on-hand runway we all dream about, we have Rent the Runway. Rent the Runway is a site where you can literally rent goregous designer dresses at a fraction of the retail price ( 25$ off your first rental!). I’ve used Rent the Runway a few times in the past and have been totally satisfied each time. They have a huge selection of dresses ranging from casual to cocktail, to high-end gala event.

I am so happy I have the luxury of having two locations here in the city for me to check out when I need a dress. They also have locations in Washington D.C, Las Vegas and Secaucus New Jersey. Check them out for your next event!
