I’ve Worked from Home for 10 Years: 5 Ways to Stay Sane and Be Productive During the CoronaVirus Quarantine

After quitting my job, moving to Paris, then moving back to New York, I found myself self employed (read about my journey here). My basement became my office, and it was up to me to create work–and entertainment–for myself. Was I bored? Hell yeah! And I missed the water cooler conversations.

Bomb Life 101: Be Patient and Trust Your Journey + If One Method Doesn’t Work, Try Another

It’s been two months, but it looks like we have finally had somewhat of a breakthrough with our Instagram situation! It’s been 2 months of anxiety, stress, shifts, and transitions, but I am happy to say that we have a glimmer of hope and our situation will hopefully be resolved soon. We were doing things one way for 8 weeks, and one shift in strategy, and we’re back in the game. I’ll be honest: I felt totally discouraged. I felt…

From me putting FashionBombDaily.com on hiatus to sad situations and family woes, I feel like every day, 2018 has been giving me a swift gut punch and is not letting up.
