You’ll float too 🎈
WHOO HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING 🥰 we finally made it and my heart feels like it’s in full bloom! This outfit is one of my new favorites and I detailed the look, some anxieties I had about it, and a little behind the scenes how-to all on the blog! Check it, link in bio! ✨
Made another organic chunky ring with a natural feel inspired by the magic of stars in the night sky. Simple but in a statement size, it's a real show stealer!

I hope you all have a friend like @luscious_locksn_lashes we’ve been friends since we were 14! 😍 it’s so fun that our babies get to be friends! Happy Birthday Tinley!💕
In life there are all kinds of people, the key is to find those people who get you and understand you without you having to always explain yourself. I’m the type of friend that cant hang out every week. I love my friends and family don’t get me wrong. But I am a huge introvert and I NEED my alone time to recharge. Sometimes people don’t understand and they get offended. But this type of personality has nothing to do with anyone else but me. So when Alisha asks me to hang out and I don’t 🙈 she still knows I love her. I just think everyone needs a friend/friends like that.
I hope you can find your people! 💕
Here’s the thing about boudoir - it’s all about celebrating YOUR sexy.
Sexy means different things to different people. When this client booked I brought up that I loved how she wore a blazer with leather leggings. It made her look powerful and badass and strong. I suggested she bring them along to her shoot and we dressed it down with a simple bralette and 💥!

Doing bed time alone makes me want to cry.
They have me all day (most days) and then at night sometimes I don’t feel I have it in me to be the only one tending to all their needs. It takes some of the stress off when it’s shared between the two of us.
It’s been a long weekend for the kids.
By midday the kids were running wild. Their emotions high, overtired and rambunctious. I can’t blame them. They had two nights away from ‘home’ and then spent two days at the sugarhouse, more sugar in 2 days than neccesary. Even I felt a little drained.
Tonight I had to do bed time alone. As I’m trying to write this I finally have 3 asleep and one nursing thats continuously waking up screaming.
My husband is at the sugarhouse.
Out of the two of us, he’s the one thats always gone/busy. I’m responsible for the kids 90% of the time.
I can’t blame him for that. I feel its unfair if I ask him to stay home. Especially when he has his own hobbies and things he enjoys. I cannot expect him not to.
Maybe I’m only speaking for myself, but why is it as a mother (parent) do we feel that we are solely responsible for our children and that expecting our spouse (partner) to have that same commitment seems unfair?
Again, I could be alone on this. I know I shouldn’t be nor should feel this way. That I should be able to do the things that fill my cup up too.
After 4 kids I still haven’t figured out how to not feel like I’m the only one responsible. But if I’m not taking care of them then who else will? I can’t expect the responsibility to be on others. I’m grateful for the nights that my parents offer to take the kids over night. But when you are with them 90% of the week, it doesnt always feel like enough.
When my husband is home, I want that time with him, I want time together as a family. I need time with him, they need time with him. I need time apart from them. They need time apart from me. We all need something.
I’m still navigating our way through this.

Wish I can relax right now but I have plenty of work and deliverables to finish. On top off that, I'm eager to release the Port Barton content but I know that I can't release it yet without finishing the blog because photos may get stolen and I worked hard for those 😂 So yes, expect to get a slow response from me in the coming days but I'll definitely make sure to respond. Thank you guys as always 💕

Tragic story from a boutique owner 🤣 For two days and 8 or so hours total my husband and I have tried and miserably failed putting together my cash wrap. Mind you the display company would have put it together for me for free but I didn’t have truck to haul it. I thought how hard could this be? Well it turns out incredibly hard! The directions were the worst I have ever seen. IKEA has nothing on these directions. Today after a lot of crying, whining, and perhaps a full on adult temper tantrum we finally got it all together. We celebrated at our triumph only to find out we put the center piece on backwards!!! 😱We had to completely take everything apart and in the process of putting it all back together we broke the bottom😂 But all is not lost thanks to gorilla wood glue. We will try again and this time we will be victorious 💪 Hope everyone had a great weekend 🙏
Happy Sunday, loves! The hubs and I are relaxing together after dinner! Enjoying quality time together before the week hits is always my favorite! Shop this outfit on the @liketoknow.it app or the link in my bio! 😘 http://liketk.it/2AGVp #liketkit
Counting down the hours until tomorrow morning! Going with my sister @katielfitzgerald to pick up my kiddos from grandma’s house in Santa Barbara.
Four nights away from my babies is four too many 😭...Althoug they are having the time of their lives as usual 😏

dear future self,
you are where you are, today, because when it got hard, and you were tired, overwhelmed and felt depleted... when you felt lonely and out of place, and overlooked or undervalued... when times were tough because you made mistakes or felt betrayed, and broken-hearted... you just kept going.
i know what you had to go through to get to where you wanted to be.
Okay. Can I just tell you all how scrumptious Golden Oak is? This color is 1000% here to stay. I mean forEVER.
The color, the feel, the softness - everything about this leather is just perfect in any style at all. PLUS, this color compliments so many of my prints and looks amazing when you do a color combo!
Golden Oak is in the shop in numerous styles! These Tstraps are SUPER popular since being released a few weeks ago! If you’re in search of an Easter shoe, Tstraps are exactly what you need!

Our summer pairings begin!! The Frances Top and The Frances Pant.
Obsessed with this cream coloured Crinkle Cotton, an all natural material with a gentle stretch. Our top has ties for a front knot and our pant has a wide waistband with shirring on the back for a comfortable fit. This summer we will have a lot of matching two piece outfits. Can’t wait for @luckygirlpopup next month!

I raced into work on a Thursday morning to be there by 6:30. THE meeting with the SVPs was at 7. You know, the meeting that I spent weeks preparing for. The one that had already been rescheduled once. The one I missed dinners for. That meeting.
I heard a vibrate on my phone. The text read, “the meeting is cancelled.” My eyes immediately filled up with tears. I poured my heart into making sure this meeting went well for them. And for what? Thoughts of, “why am I doing this?, who am I doing this for?, does my hard work even matter?,” consumed my mind. UGH talk about not feeling enough!
It was in that moment I decided that I am worth more than this! I deserve to be recognized and appreciated. I want to make an impact in people’s lives who want to be impacted. I’m tired of feeling like what I’m doing isn’t enough. I’m tired of feeling tired.
For me, running an online business was the ticket to a setting my own schedule (“living life on my terms” as they say), capturing moments with my kids as they happen, and building the life my family daydreams about. Never woulda guessed that it would have ignited a passion (aka obsession. Ha!) to inspire women to love themselves enough to be unapologetically themselves!
I’ve been working on something for a couple months that’ll stretch this passion for women a little further! And guess what? I’m gonna let you in on that thing tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for it!
Call me curious, but have you ever felt this way? Like unappreciated and not good enough?
✨ You are a poet and your life is your poetry ✨ Creating a life you truly desire and admire is no easy feat. Let me ask you❓ Would you enjoy reading the poetry that is your life❓
If the answer is ‘no’, ask yourself these 3 questions:
1. Do you know who you truly are?
2. Do you know what you truly desire?
3. Are you taking action steps daily to live a life that you’re proud of?
If you answered 'no' to any of the above, you are right where you are meant to be. ⌚You have arrived, and you're right on time⌚
Because it is in the midst of your murky confusion where the magic of discovery lies. ❓Now let me ask you…. Are you honestly ready to discover yourself❓
Are you willing to get to know yourself on the deepest of levels?
Are you willing to strip back the masks?
Are you willing to release what is no longer your cross to bear? ♡ By understanding yourself at the deepest level, you have the true capacity to embody who your Soul came here to be and live how your Soul truly wishes to live ♡
When you access your innate codes and unique energy blueprint you can unlock your intrinsic keys and begin to live a life in a vibratory state where miracles exist daily and magic is real.
If you have felt the niggle inside that there is something more to life, you're correct. There is.
This niggle is your Soul trying to guide you in the direction of your desires.
This is coming from me - a trained lawyer who escaped the 9 to 5 to follow her dreams.
It’s my soul purpose in this life to help you unlock your authenticity and follow your biggest dreams and desires... ☾ I have opened my calendar to work with a select few people in my 1:1 immersion Journey of the Radiant Soul ☾

Sharing your story is so important. Not only will it encourage others, but it will encourage you. It will encourage you to see how far you’ve come and where you will continue to go. Go ahead, write your story! You won’t regret it and just watch how many people will be encouraged. 💜
This weekend has been quite the adventure... from viewpoints and hiking, to car camping and hostel crashing. It’s the breath of fresh air that I’ve been craving. Those long drives through the desert give me life and so does @spyrothedragon.

You wouldn’t think a small piece of copper foil could mean so much to your target audience. Take a looksy for my little branding tip. 💡
✨I’m going to starve if I have to eat from those containers✨
Yep that was my first thought 5 years ago when I opened the package and saw these pretty little rainbow containers!
After I had my second child I found myself struggling to get the baby weight off. I mean it was so easy after my first so why wasn’t it happening now?? Well little did I know that my nutrition was horrible!! I thought eating 100 calorie packs, anything that said low fat, and zero sugar was healthy!!🤦🏻♀️ I mean I could eat anything I wanted when I was in high school and college!! Well hello slower metabolism!! ✨I learned how to read labels. ✨I learned that I am a carb lover and did not eat enough veggies. ✨I learned that I really can eat a lot of food, it just has to be the RIGHT foods. ✨I said goodbye to counting calories. ✨I learned there is no quick fix, but with an understanding of what foods fuel your body you can reach your goals whatever they may be
Muscles, Mimosas, & Masks was a success!! It was such a fun morning hanging out, drinking mimosas, trying samples, and getting our sweat on. Thank you ladies for joining! 🥰 Looking forward to doing it again soon and I can’t for my @beautycounter products to get here!!
Be sure to surround yourself with people who push you, who challenge you, who make you laugh, who make you better, and who make you happy. 🤸🏻♀️
