2019 Goals and Resolutions

Happy Friday! Last year I shared my 2018 goals and some advice about how to stick to them, around this very same time. I’m a big fan of easing into January and have a work schedule that encourages this. I love it is because it gives me time to decompress and also contemplate what I want the next year to look like, without getting swept up in the “new year, new me” January 1 mindset, which I personally think can be really toxic. Anyway, here’s a peek into what I’m planning for 2019!

3 Tips for Being Stylish on a Budget

Working in academia is a unique world. There are days where we might not teach or even go into the office at all and other days where the meetings and obligations seem endless. This requires academics to have a pretty versatile wardrobe. For example, I have a possibly unhealthy amount of athleisure for the days and weekends I spend working at home mixed with skirts, dresses, pants, blouses, and a solid collection of school spirit in various forms.

Here are my top three tips for being a stylish academic on a budget, because we all know you don’t become an academic for the money! 😉
