So it's Wednesday, December 21st, just short of 3pm & I'm perched on the couch, leg propped up and iced. If you follow me on IG or on my YouTube channel then you would know that last Friday I had foot surgery, better known as a bunionplasty, or to us non MD's, bunion removal surgery. I slowly acquired a bunion on my left foot that had been getting progressively worse over the years and as the pain became unbearable, I knew surgery was the only option.
So I say this with love:
TAKE CARE OF YOUR FEET! And yes, I realize that sounds both weird AND obvious, but it was something I neglected to do! Taking of your feet -and your body for that matter- is more than just bi-weekly pedicures, exercising and eating healthy. And though I take pride in doing all of those things, I failed to realize the importance of wearing good quality -and TRULY comfortable- shoes. And no, good quality does not necessarily mean expensive!
So for the next 8 weeks or so, I'll be wobbling around with a boot and crutches slowly trying to regain strength and balance in my left foot. And though I've definitely had a few moments of regret, I know it'll be worth it in the end.
Thank you all for the lovely get well wishes + comments as they truly mean the world to me.
Happy Holidays! -C
Another week. Another vlog! And for more of my YouTube content, click below!
*Covers face in shame.* So I fell off my YouTube game for about a month but recently decided to vlog my Saturday afternoon adventures in Target with my good girl Adia! -Check out here amazing beauty + lifestyle blog here!- We paced the fashion, beauty and home decor aisles hoping to find a few treasures and of course, because it's TARGET, we did!
I'm also considering incorporating regular vlogs onto my YouTube channel so if that's something you'd be interested in seeing, please let me know! Happy holidays and be sure to check out the rest of my videos down below!
Hey girl, hey!
I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving and are enjoying the holiday season. Today's post was inspired by the fact that 1. I had yet to wear my Stella McCartney creepers since scoring them on MAJOR sale last season and 2. Not being able to take off this Uniqlo sweatshirt dress b/c it's THAT comfortable! -Sadly it's sold out online but I've linked similar styles above!-
Nonetheless, I'm taking it easy this holiday season and have decided to x-nay decorating the house along with not spending a ton of money on gifts this year. My family and I are capping off each person's budget at $100 and really just focusing on the REAL reason for the season: the birth of J E S U S !
So with that, you won't be seeing any of my usual gift-guides but I'll always be sharing my favorite things -that can also double as gifts- over on my IG so be sure you're following me there! xX -C.
