Affordable Cozy Pieces

Affordable Cozy Pieces

I'm starting to feel more and more like myself after returning back from Singapore last week (you can find my full recap of my work trip to the other side of the world here). The jet lag didn't hit right away, and I was foolish enough to think I beat it. Ha! I felt like I hit a wall one afternoon, and the exhaustion was for real. SO worth it though! Still feeling sluggish at times, but mostly back to normal. I enjoyed a quiet weekend with my little family, and we headed out to my favorite local spot for Mexican food and margaritas. I wore this cozy sweater from SheIn paired with shorts because hello Florida, and it was perfect for cheers-ing to a family dinner after all the travel.

I'm also loving some other bright colored cozy pieces from SheIn like this lace trim sweater which is only $8. I'm all about stocking up on cozy pieces at super affordable prices especially since we only break them out every so often in the sunshine state.

And can we please talk about this gorgeous pleated midi skirt which is only $18. I fell in love with the bold pop of color, and decided to pair my lipstick with it for extra fun. I'm rockin' it today at the office, and love how comfortable it is while it takes me from meetings to running errands during lunch.

Workin' it in Singapore

Workin' it in Singapore

I'm baaaaaack! I can't rave enough about traveling to Singapore... for work! I've always heard the expression "love what you do", and I couldn't be more proud to say that after several years of crappy jobs I finally love what I do. I have two more big work trips coming up, so stay tuned to find out what fun city I'll be visiting next.

I always get nervous about how uncomfortable I'll be on long flights, and not sleeping well. The longest flight I had been on before this trip was 10 hours between LA and Fiji, so knowing this trip would be a couple hours to Minneapolis, then 12 hours to Seoul, South Korea, and then another 5 and 1/2 hours to Singapore I was dreading the "getting there" part. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't that bad... I upgraded to Comfort+ (for only $39!) for the longest flight, and each flight had meal service, complimentary bar drinks, and countless movies and tv shows to watch. I also had some great travel buddies from work, and realized it was SO worth the long trip once we got there. 

We flew up and over Canada and Alaska instead of cutting straight across, and then came back down over Russia and China. 

Free wine and Impractical Jokers? YES please! 

Descending into Seoul, South Korea

The Singapore airport is GORGEOUS!

After 28+ hours of travel, it felt amazing to get checked in to the hotel where I immediately took a shower and got settled in. Facetiming H and lil' miss was a must of course! 

Even the toiletry holder was a little guitar - such a cool touch!

The next morning, a group of us went to quickly check out Gardens by the Bay and the iconic roof top at Marina Bay Sands before we needed to hit the ground running that afternoon for the big event. Because, what's jet lag?

The view from the top!

There was a Formula 1 race the same weekend, and I loved how the track went around the Singapore Flyer wheel.

That afternoon and evening I was running around capturing content for work, and then was able to venture out for a bit near the hotel to check out the Universal Studios globe (yeah I know we have one here in Orlando, but it was SO cool to see it in Singapore). We grabbed a quick drink in their version of City Walk which is called Festive Walk before exhaustion set in.

That was the most I got out for the rest of the trip since I was super busy, and when ever I'd get back to my room I'd end up working for several hours before crashing. I know, I'm exciting...

How gorgeous was the hotel pool?! I swooned over it each and every day, and finally got a chance to take a nice dip after the event was over. It was perfect to soothe my achey muscles and back because I am in fact an old lady.

Already time to leave - comfort was key for almost 36 hours of travel
