Hey fam! Today I want to talk to y’all about the wildest leap I’ve ever made - leaving my corporate job to become fully self-employed. 

About a year and some change ago I made the decision to bet on myself and my platform and left my super safe 9-to-5 office job. I never considered myself to have that entrepreneurial spirit you hear about, so being completely on my own terrified the living crap out of me. Also, when I started Chelsea as of Late, I truly never thought it would become a way to sustain myself - it was purely a hobby!

I struggled to come to this decision because my head would immediately go to all the ways I could fail and the reasons why I shouldn’t ‘rock the boat’ so to speak. I eventually gathered the courage - and finances - and made the leap in February of last year.

I want to speak about this today because the laundry list of reasons why I shouldn’t have left seem so silly today but I know they can be absolutely paralyzing in the moment. And this applies to so many aspects of life, beyond just work and career.

HaloTop Creamery invited me to speak to their #StopShouldingYourself and I think there’s truly no better time to adopt this mentality. Stop getting in the way of your own success, joy and growth and start betting on yourself. I promise it’s the most rewarding thing one can do!

Where are my girls struggling to make it to your next wash day at? There’s this universal,
unspoken rule that once your hair goes up in a bun, there’s no going back until your next wash
day and it’s so true! I for one do everything in my power to avoid brushing my hair back as I
know it’s game over if I do. Cue my go-to the Waterless Collection by Pantene!

I wanted to show y’all my usual hairstyle around day 3/4. I tend to throw half of my hair up,
leaving some of my “curly bangs” out, and I’ll add a headband, scarf or cute pins to dress it up a
bit. Before I do this this, I go in with the Pantene Cheat Day Dry Shampoo Foam + Mist
Behaving Dry Conditioner Mist to make sure my hair holds out for another few days. For
reference I wash my hair about once a week, and co-wash every other “wash day”, so these
little hacks are how I keep my hair fresh in-between washes. For the dry shampoo foam, I
dispense a small amount on my fingertips and massage at the roots to get rid of any excess oil
but also refreshes my hair style. I also spray the dry conditioner mist at the ends of my hair to
smooth out my ends and control frizz.

I also have to take into account shoot days and keeping my hair ready to take on different
hairstyles. Oftentimes I shoot 3 or 4 concepts in a day, so having my hair pulled back into a
single style just isn’t ideal - hence why I swear by this duo. What I love most about these two is
that they’re totally curly girl-friendly - since they’re free of alcohols, sulfates, parabens 
and don’t leave your hair feeling too rough and unworkable.

Hey gang! It's no secret that we're likely going to be spending tons of time at home for the foreseeable future. I've been shopping strictly loungewear these days and though, why not put together some of my favorite picks for y'all to check out. Getting ready in the morning is really important for my productivity levels, so I still want these pieces to feel stylish and somewhat put together.
 Now this is a story all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down...no but like literally!
