Amore is On Hiatus!

img_0291Happy New Year! It’s been about 4 months since my last post and I told myself that I would stop with the BS excuses in 2019 so I’m just going to be honest with you. I have no idea what I wanted to do with “Amore Luxe”. What began as a passion/hobby started to feel like a burden. I was depressed and discouraged and didn’t want to write about that so I stayed away. I would occasionally pop up and try to impart words of wisdom but it didn’t feel completely genuine so I felt that it was best that I stayed away until I had something positive/fun/uplifting to write about. Days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months and before I knew it, 2019 was here! I told myself that I wouldn’t start this year off the same way as I did all the others: broken promises and more bs so I’m posting today to tell you that I’m still figuring out what direction I want this blog to go into. No major announcements will happen until I know exactly what I want to do. I have ideas but until they are made a reality, I am going to work behind the scenes and really plan things out.  Although there won’t be any posts for the time being, I am still active on social media (Angela Cherai on FB and @amoreluxe_ on IG) so you can reach me there and “Amore Luxe Media” is up and running so hit me up for all of your social media/content writing needs! Thank you for your continued patience and I will make sure that all of the changes are worth the wait! Talk to you soon!!

Until then,

Love and Live Luxuriously!


Snowed In

I am sitting in my room at the moment debating on whether I want to go outside to deal with the slushy mess that I know I will meet due to the snowstorm that came through the Northeast and Midwest last night. I like looking at snow but I hate feeling trapped in because of it and feeling less productive as a result. I have so much going on inside my head and being off from work gives me the chance to over think things which has shown to do more harm than good. So what’s a girl to do when she’s snowed in?

I wanted to work on some of the goals that I am able to do while being inside (exercise, meditate) so I can feel like I’ve accomplished something. I also want to continue reading this book that is helping me tap into my inner artist called “The Artist’s Way” which has helped me become more honest with myself and has given me a clearer idea on how to go about expanding my creativity.  This would help motivate me but then the other side of me just wants to listen to music and watch tv shows on the HuluPlus app on my iPad. I feel like this is a great way to relax which is good because I am able to clear my mind of all stressful ideas (this is what I keep telling myself anyway!)

Instead of looking at this situation as a roadblock that’s stopping me from being productive, I am going to take the snow as a sign to stop whatever I am doing and to just appreciate what is around me. So many of us are used to our everyday routines and fast pace that life offers but we often don’t press pause and just live in the moment. Whatever I decide to do while I am snowed in for the day. I am going to make sure that I enjoy every minute of it and I hope you do the same:)
