Happiness is...

Things that don’t make me happy - an overflowing inbox. Apologies in advance if you’ve recently reached out to me via email but the holidays are pretty synonymous with busy, busy, and busier.

It feels like I'm constantly trying to play catch up while struggling with everything coming my way. Are you feeling overwhelmed as well? Well, let's focus on things that bring us joy.


I find that focusing on things that bring me joy definitely helps (a lot) when trying to relax. That and picking up a few skincare products here and there. Which I definitely did a little bit too much of during the last couple of months. My bank account is still crying over my Black Friday madness, but it's okay since my skin is reaping the rewards.


Those that follow me on Snapchat know (find me by searching: thestyleboro) about my Korean skincare obsession, but those that followed me during my Parisian vacation saw firsthand how big my hauls get. In my defense, I had to - some of these brands have yet to make it to the states and others don't have their full line here.

One of these brands being NUXE. They pride themselves on affordability and still being an all-natural line - which I love. The Huile Prodigieuse from NUXE is a cult favorite, smells amazing, and can be used so many different ways. When wearing OTK boots, I love using this as a moisturizer or mixing a few drops of it into my foundation when it's really dry out. If you're not too sure about the dry oil, try their Rêve de Miel lip balm (wearing it here) or their shower gel (smells amazing too!).

What have I learned after testing Nuxe out? I need a bigger suitcase for my next Parisian trip.


Another thing that brings me joy, arting and this mural filled the bill quite nicely. If you're wondering where to find it head over to the East Village and it's located inside a park - I think it's 2nd & 2nd but will head back to confirm this.

It was the perfect backdrop when talking things that make me smile.

Alright, now that I divulged in what makes me happy, it's your turn. What do you do to bring joy to an otherwise hectic day.
