If you know me at all, you know how much I love Disneyland and all things #DisneyStyle! Since the parks are closed for the foreseeable future, it got me thinking -- why not still have a little fun with my Disney fashion? And voila -- #EarsOutsidetheParks was born!

I have what some might call a minor obsession with serums. I've tried a LOT of them, and I frequently look for ones I can use not only before moisturizer, but instead of it. Recently, I've become absolutely obsessed with Joanna Vargas Daily Serum.

I've been a major fan of Olive & June for quite some time. (Proof here.) It's the only nail salon I visit in LA — and I honestly can't wait to go again once quarantine is over. But the one thing I hadn't done yet? Bought any of Olive & June's gorgeous nail polishes!

While I've been on a spending hiatus since this all started — barring the necessities from the grocery store, Target and Amazon, of course — I decided new nail polish was, indeed, a necessity. So I loaded up my cart with five gorgeous shades — not too small a feat, since I basically wanted every single color — and waited anxiously for them to arrive. They did, I unloaded the beautiful shades one by one, and I got to painting! So here's my #ManiMonday Meets The Self Care-antine Series post, featuring a multicolored manicure with Olive & June polishes!

We're in a scary, uncertain time. None of us knows what the next day holds. There are new numbers released daily, new shelter-in-place orders, new ways of life. Many people have lost their jobs and have no idea how to pay their rents and mortgages. Many people don't know if they will have jobs to go back to when this is all over. Many of us are now confined to our homes, not knowing when these orders will be lifted or what the world will look like when things return to "normal." I've been thinking a lot about how to continue to care for myself during this time, especially when so many stores are shut down or no longer shipping products. How do I maintain some semblance of "normal" during all of this?

And, so, I conceived The Self Care-antine Series. (Thank you to my friend Jenny for helping me concept the name! I was talking to her last week about starting this series, and said I wanted to do a series on self care during quarantine, and this came out of us.) This is not meant to make light of anything happening with COVID-19. I know people who have contracted the disease. I have friends working on the front lines of ERs in Michigan and New York City. I have friends trapped on the Zaandam. However, at the same time, my life must go on in some small way during this time, as all of our lives must. So, while I shelter in place in Los Angeles, I'm looking at small ways to keep myself going. I'll be featuring different products that are available during this time and can, hopefully, bring you a small amount of joy as they are bringing to me. Up first: Soap & Glory Hand Food Hydrating Hand Cream.
