Hi friends and happy Friday! I hope your week has been a fabulous one! I started off the week at the Ojai Valley Inn in Ojai, California and it was glorious. It was a Beautycounter Incentive trip that I worked my tail off to earn! It was so nice and they totally spoiled us. I had so much down time and really enjoyed it! It made me realize that even in my downtime at home, I’m not actually unplugging and recharging. I’m totally that person who works constantly and doesn’t rest much. I think it’s just how I’m wired. That being said, I did take a few days to rest and it was so nice and needed!
Nothing better than a gorgeous view and a cup of hot coffee!
My business casual look for Monday’s morning training!
A glass of chardy, a cute suit and hat and I’m a happy gal!
What I wore for the red, pink, orange night! This dress is not available online, so I linked some similar options below so that you can recreate this look!
Tried goat yoga and made a new friend, who seemed to love taking selfies!
What I wore to the western chic night! This skirt is a must!!
The views were incredible! I can’t wait to go back one day with Mr. Fancy in tow!
What I wore home on the plane. This was the perfect travel outfit!
My new favorite pajamas! They are so soft and SO cute!
A splurge but treated myself to this sweatsuit that was calling my name (for several days) at the hotel gift shop! My new “at home” uniform!
Self Care Ideas
The realization this week that I really don’t unplug and recharge at home has me thinking that I need to make this more of a priority and something tells me you do too! I think as moms and as women in general we give, give, give and work, work, work, usually putting ourselves last. I think as we go into this busy holiday season it’s all the more important to remind ourselves to recharge at least once a week, be it big or small! Here are a few ideas…
Gratitude- A Great Form of Self Care
Another way that has been helping me feel more grounded and calm is to start my day with a gratitude journal and write down three specific things that I’m grateful for. Not the obvious things like family, friends and a home (although those top the grateful list) I try and reflect on specific moments from the previous day or things that are bringing me joy. By recording them every morning it not only sets the tone of the day in a positive way, but I love going back and reading these reflections when I’m feeling anxious or stressed. It’s been a game changer for me so I wanted to share it with YOU! We shared these two printables last week on the Fancy Ashley Weekend Newsletter, but didn’t want you to miss out in case you aren’t subscribed…which by the way, you totally should be so you don’t miss future resources!

Buy Now, Wear Now…and Later!
I’m still loving these holiday pieces that I shared in this post, this week! I love that you can incorporate the pieces into your wardrobe NOW, but also have that perfect outfit already in your closet come December when your head is spinning from all the things, but you need something to wear!
