arrianeserafico Current desk situation.

Untangling some unexpected, technical, adult-level messes today, on top of my to-do list. Biggest learning here is either:
a) I still cannot believe I'm an adult, or
b) HOW AM I AN ADULT

arrianeserafico TUESDAAAAAAAAAAY
Achievement unlocked: Making my nail polish last for 1 week. #smallwins, people.

PS. Thinking of getting a 2nd tattoo! You can see a hint of my first one in this photo. It's such a tiny dainty one WHICH was inked on me by a really badass, tough-looking tattoo artist (he was one of the artists who did a BGC wall mural!) ... who was probably rolling his eyes & muttering under his breath about the ridiculousness of what I wanted him to do. Hehehehehe

arrianeserafico OOPSIES. So I thought I could pull off short bangs......... well............ let's just say that now I know better. Huhu.

Spending another week or two with my bangs pinned up & praying they grow at superhuman speed. Until then... truly deeply sorry world, for subjecting you to the full breadth of my forehead on a daily basis. #youwinsomeyoulosesome #thegreatbangslesson #whyamilearningthislessonat27

I noticed that my hair grew out faster when I did that. :) you can also try fresh aloe vera (my lola used to do that to me when I was a kid. Hehehe). Snap out one "leaf" and massage the gel on your scalp. Shampoo and conditioner as usual. :) 4d

arrianeserafico Finalizing my #capsulewardrobe is taking forever. But I'm almost there -- just need to replace my 3-year-old (!!) favorite Zara button-downs which are already getting so thinned out from too much wearing & washing #consciouscloset
.
I find that my extra broad shoulders usually find the best fit in the menswear department. Exhibit A, above. Still need to test if this shopping hack works on blazers as well.

Also: yes my blonde is gone, and I'm back to almost-black hair! Thank you @jurosalonexclusif!

arrianeserafico SO EXCITED to share with you this shoot that I co-produced in San Francisco when I was there last April!

It was one of the fastest, most on-point shoots I have ever done, which is A MIRACLE given that: 1) it was my first time in SF, and 2) I was working with 2 ladies I have never met before I flew in to the US. I love working fast-and-fun, so I was in lean-startup-practices heaven. #nerrrd Haha!

Enough geek talk - follow @rags2richesinc for more photos + to know when it's launching! (This photo is just a BTS from my tiny camera! The real photos are WAAAAAAY better)

arrianeserafico Does this apply to a workout?!?!! Huhu so hard to get into my workout clothes. #NOTREADY

But on a more serious note! This is from #AmyPoehler's 'Yes Please', one of my favorite books - "Because what else are we going to do? Say no? Say no to an opportunity that may be slightly out of our comfort zone? Quiet our voice because we are worried it is not perfect? I believe great people do things before they are ready." #WIPnotestoself

arrianeserafico Friday night be like... My best gal #BananaTheShihtzu has been accompanying me this entire sick week. Aren't I the luckiest!

She's not a very good workout buddy though. I try to start every morning with a workout, but she sits herself right in the middle of my mat (pictured here). Whenever I lie down to do leg raises, she sits down below my legs so I can't lower them back down. Whenever I try to do sit-ups, she crawls behind my back so I can't lower myself back to the floor. Whenever I do planks, she LICKS MY FACE. It goes on and on and on, and I end up laughing myself out of a workout.

arrianeserafico Missing the San Francisco vibe & adventures+masterminding with @jujusevilla! Can't wait to be back in a few months ♡ #tbt

GOOD MORNING FRIIIIIIIIIIIIIDAY. FINALLY!!! Crawled my way through what felt like mud & fire this week... partly because I only have one functional eye.

arrianeserafico Got this poster when I attended the 99U Conference in NYC. Had to pin this right in front of my desk + do a lot of breathing exercises to get thru today!!!!!! Gah.

Aside from the fact that I only have one functional eye right now, this has been the most frustratingly stressful work day Web coding and slow internet on top of everything else. Thank God for side hustles & passion projects I look forward to doing after work!

Holding on to the exciting thought that eventually, everything connects. (Hard work being a prerequisite) #GRIT

So excited to be masterminding a collab/project/we-don't-know-what-to-call-it with @reeseypeasy: my MOST FAVORITE Filipina musician+artist, if we're being really honest about it.
We're both venturing into something new & super important to us, so I'm glad to be in amazing/colorful company!

*PS. You should check out her Mean Girls song if you still haven't!!!
