Easy, Cozy Looks Worth Showering For

In the last few weeks we have been focusing on the concept of stepping up our daily routine of getting ready for the day in a more proactive, “self-care” kind of way, and to help ease us all back into a little bit of our pre-pandemic lives, Bobbi has curated a fabulous collection of comfy, cozy lounge and sportswear that can be mixed and matched and will definitely elevate your look not to mention your outlook.

Three Easy Pieces

This week’s blog is the second in our series on remembering the importance of making yourself look the gorgeous pre-pandemic you.

COVID and Habits for Self-Care

Ahh COVID…the changer of everything in our lives. Regardless of your particular life situation, COVID-19 has certainly changed everything about how we operate. Two of the things that have changed so drastically with the onset of the pandemic are how we dress and our self-care routines…and while life as we know it has definitely changed, after nearly four months in our PJs, it’s time to establish some new self-care routines in our new normal!
