How many times have you found yourself in “go mode” without a minute to rest, reset and set aside time for yourself? How many times have you placed self care on the back burner — thinking that if you’re not in “grind mode” 24 hours a day, 7 days a week then you’re not really working towards your goals and dreams?
Well, guys it sure has been awhile huh? I’ll be honest and say that I haven’t been as excited about writing and blogging in some time. Then over this past week that all changed. I took a look at the content calendar I created, and all the post ideas I had in mind and my whole mindset shifted (in a good way). I’m ready to kick things back into high gear, but first I wanted to let you guys in on what’s been up with me these last few months.
Hi loves! It’s been awhile, but I promise I’ll explain in another post. Today, I wanted to chat about a topic that’s near and dear to my heart – simply because I feel like it’s not done enough. Of course you see all of the memes and tweets about how important it is to check on your strong friends, but does that lead you to actually do it? Even for me, I feel like I’m always so into helping others and checking in, that I forget that someone needs to do the same for me. So if you have a strong friend who you’re always going to for advice, but forgetting to check with them on their needs, this post is for you. Keep reading for my tips on how you can check on your strong friends and let them know you care about what they might be going through in secret.
Gosh, I’ve been trying to put off writing this blog post, mostly because every time I see someone write about it they only seem to give the watered down version of it. People assume that being an “Influencer” is this fairytale that seems perfect. Well, it’s not and there’s so much that comes with it besides that usual stories that you probably hear. I’m sure you’ve heard about how it’s harder than it looks, and how there’s so much work that goes into it besides the glitz and glam you see on social media. I’m sure you’ve heard about how some opportunities aren’t paid, and how even when they are it’s not a ton of money like you think. I want to tell you a little bit more than that though if you’re willing to keep reading.
Wow, is it me or does it feel like I just wrote out my goals for 2018 yesterday? I mean this year truly flew by, and I took the time out to reflect on all of the accomplishments I had as well as some things that I still need to work on. Can you believe that we’ll be entering 2019 in two days? Are you ready? Well, I know I am SO ready that I’ve prepared my top 5 goals for the new year that I wanted to share with you all!
Hi beauties! Literally a few more days of 2018, and I’m feeling so refreshed and ready to tackle the new year. My family came in from Chicago to spend the holidays with Ben and I, and I just feel so loved and re-energized. You guys know how I get when I’m around my family! Anyway, during this holiday break (and a little before), I’ve been finding some AMAZING fashion pieces, including this little number here.
Let’s talk about how obsessed I’ve been with anything corduroy lately. I mean, at first I was scared to admit this but now I’m letting the world know (aka you guys) how much I love this corduroy trend and how I hope it never goes away. Thank you for listening to my Ted Talk…just kidding. But seriously, this has become one of my favorite fashion trends, as I have corduroy pants, dresses and hats at this point in my closet. Imagine my expression when I was just scrolling though Urban Outfitters site and saw this beautiful rust corduroy dress. I died.
We finally made it to Friday loves! If you were wondering, this is how my days usually go: Wake up around 6:45am/7am, rush through my closet for something to wear, hop in the shower, brush my teeth then run out the door grabbing everything I’ll need for the day. Yeah, it’s pretty much a world wind in the mornings – and let’s not add in the days where I’m up at 6am because I need to record a podcast or schedule a newsletter. Life has been so hectic these days guys, and I’m always waking up wondering how I’m going to survive the day – but after a cup of something warm (whether that be a coffee, espresso, matcha, etc) I feel 100% ready to tackle anything that is thrown at me.
Life gets busy (often), so it’s up to us to do a few things – constantly stay organized and keep ourselves motivated and inspired to keep it going! There are times when we need pick me ups to get ourselves together and makes sure that we are being productive in our day-to-day lives. Lucky for you, I’m here to share four ways you can increase your productivity to ensure that you are making the most out of your days.
Hi beauties! I’m back, and I cant’ believe that it’s November. Wow – it literally feels like I was just making a blog post about how to slay 2018 and now it’s almost over. Anyway. I felt so compelled to come on here and share with you guys how over the past few months I’ve been “reclaiming my time” and really getting back the power I knew I had deep down all alone. It’s so easy to go through the motions of life and forget why you’re doing something, and sometimes even forgetting who you are and who you stand for as as person. Before the year ends, we need to address it and get back out why (and our power),
