I get my eyebrows waxed from Raluca at Anastasia Beverly Hills in LA, and then at Anastasia Beverly Hills in Sephora in NYC. I fill them in with Bobbi Brown eyeshadow in Mahogany using a brow brush.
Ask Kat a question:
Thank you so much for your support and for sending this question in! I’m sorry to hear that you’re struggling with depression and anxiety. I think the best thing you can do for yourself is go to therapy. Research different therapists in your area, and find one who preferably takes your insurance, and then set up an initial consultation. Not every therapist is the same, so make sure you actually like them and feel comfortable with them before committing! In the beginning, it’s helpful to go 2 times a week, and then you can do once a week for maintenance until you work through what’s going on. Working on yourself first, will ultimately help you work through your career stuff and allow you to see the bigger picture and think more clearly. I hope that helps and I wish you the best of luck in all that you do <3
Hi Ariana! Thank you so much for your support and kind words! It is totally normal not to know what you want to do while you’re in college so don’t worry! College is all about finding yourself and trying lots of new classes and activities to see what you like or don’t like. I realized after college, I didn’t want to pursue Interior Design which I had majored in. In order to be productive and have a creative outlet, I started my blog and that led me to where I am today. I think it’s so smart to either hold several internships in different fields, meet with various individuals who intrigue you/hold a career you’re interested in, and perhaps even start a website/blog to jot down your thoughts, musings and ideas! You can read my Career Advice post here and any of my Advice posts to get a sense of how I got started in the industry and what tools have helped me along the way!
Hi! I LOVE purging. It’s therapeutic for me, and I try to do it every 2-3 months. My mom was always cleaning out her closet and donating stuff growing up, and encouraged us to do the same so it’s become a habit for me! I think the best thing to do is, every season, touch and look at every single piece of clothing in your closet. Ask yourself if you a.) even like it anymore! b.) have worn it recently c.) if it still fits, or if you’d rather upgrade/replace it with something else. If you’re convincing yourself that you’ll wear something maybe once next year, it’s probably time to get rid of it. You can always rent one of a kind pieces at places like Rent The Runway. I’d rather have a closet where I can see everything, it’s de-cluttered, and full of classic, high quality staple pieces. If you’ve had something hanging in your closet forever, don’t want to part with it, but haven’t worn it in a while – maybe take it to your tailor and see if they can tweak it to make it more appealing! In terms of getting rid of clothes, I like to sell my gently worn pieces on Poshmark, or donate things to a local women’s shelter. I hope that helps!
