Have Passion


This past weekend I was asked to be the guest speaker at a National Charity League Tea. Speaking to over 200 girls between the ages of 11 and 23 and their mommas. I spoke about what it means to be a leader in your community and being a #girlboss. Encouraging girls to start driving their passions young.  I can tell you that there is nothing more powerful then a women who is passionate about taking the lead in a team. You have to stay creative and celebrate your individuality. You are a trailblazer and have to have the desire to advance your community and even the world. You have to stay innovative, think of new ways to create and connect to push our society forward. You have to stay confident. Know who you are and…

There is really nothing more that I love then having creative friends. Being in a creative field myself, having that community is something I credit a lot of my work to. As a creative, it is hard and nearly impossible to thrive on your own, you rely heavily on others talents, just as others rely on yours. So, anytime that I get the chance to help another creative I will use every outlet that I can. As for this post we are going to be talking about Jonathan Galan. The only person you will ever meet who can eat everything off of the McDonalds menu and drink a two-liter bottle of Coke before noon and still have a 6-pack. An amazing friend of mine who I have worked on many projects with before. He…

His Opal

hisopal (1 of 4)

<br/. In todays post I have teamed up with an amazing swimwear line called His Opal. They are believers, just as I am, that every body is beautiful and promote swimwear for women of all shapes and sizes. I made the decision to team up with them after the overwhelming feedback I received from my last swim post. For any women out there struggling with body image, remember this. To be beautiful is to be yourself. You do not need to find acceptation in others, you need to accept yourself and with that will come love. And for those of you who have found that acceptance for yourself, I encourage you to lift others up that are around you. Encourage them, love them and inspire them. All swimwear can be found HERE   Stay…

Lets Get Handsy


If you have been following my blog or social media for any time now, you would know that I am OBSESSIVE about my nails and jewelry. I have colloborated with a few amazing jewelry makers and hand-painted nail companies to bring you todays blog post. How to stack and style your rings. In my opinion, for an outfit to be complete you must have it going on from the tip if your head to the toes on your feet. I feel like women often forget to accesorize their hands, but oh boy does it make a huge difference! Lets talk about these nails for a second.... THEY ARE AMAZING! I have always loved having long and unique nails, and these press on nails have been a life saver for me! Not only do they…

I have always been hesitant to post bikini pictures on my blog, social media, etc. Just because I am clearly not a size 0 model. A girls got some boobs and a butt. HOWEVER, I thought through it and there I feel like a lot of girls could benefit from this post. It has been a while since I have put on a standard bikini. I ALWAYS wear high waisted bottoms –because they look cute and I feel so comfortable in them! BUT, these bikinis from Trunkettes are LIFE CHANGER! I feel so comfortable in them! They fit beautifully for curvy women and makes sure that everything that should be covered, is covered. And for petite women, the ways these suits are carefully designed and constructed will give you some curves! Here are a few…
