Binge This Week: The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

The fascinating journey that Amy Sherman-Palladino, the show’s creator, takes you on to see how Midge handles this unplanned event in her very planned out life is mesmerizing. Not to mention hilarious. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is exactly the show we need to cozy up to during these long winter months. Lucky for us, season 2 is premiering December 5th. That is just enough time for you to binge season 1 if you haven’t already.

Is Revolve the Next Victoria's Secret?

Oh, Revolve. The retail powerhouse that I will never understand. Through what I can only imagine was years of continuous hard work and well implemented influencer strategies, Revolve has made it’s mark on the millenial generation and the online shopping world. The company has established itself as a contender, one that is not going away, one that has proven to be successful. However, they just can’t seem to understand that the world is not inhabited by women that are all a size 2. Revolve, when are you going to board the size inclusive train? It’s time.

Handling Anxiety While Trying To Create a Successful Life

Do you ever look at the successful people around you, or on social media, and wonder how they do it all? How do these women have kids, run multi-million dollar companies, look amazing and still appear to have their shit together? Are none of them freaking out on the inside? Do successful women mask their anxiety, or do they just not have it at all?

How to Keep Commitments to Yourself

Lately I have noticed that a lot of the tasks on my lists do not get crossed off or keep getting pushed to the next day’s list. These are obviously important tasks or else I wouldn’t have written them down, right? Things like train for the half marathon, clean the shower, fold the laundry, write. These tasks are necessary to my well-being. Yet I find reasons why they cannot be accomplished at their set times on my list.

The Secret About Happiness

These were the things that were making me sad and anxious and causing self-doubt. Until I started to remember the bigger picture. Life isn’t about each and every second of every day. It isn't about how much money you have or how fast you pay off debt. (Even though I am still racing to pay off mine as quick as possible.) It’s about the overall impact your life has on the people and things around you.

The Sweetness of Doing Nothing

I decided to jump off the insta-perfect train about 4 months ago. Honestly, I don’t remember the exact day. I just remember thinking that I couldn’t do this anymore. I already have a perfect for me life and I was ruining it because I wasn’t skinny enough, I hadn’t been to Morocco,  I hadn’t reached 10,000 Instagram followers so that I could finally have the coveted swipe up feature, etc.

Welcome to 2018, Your Most Successful Year Yet

I love the first week of a new year. It is filled with rushed excitement trying to get everything done to ensure that your year starts off on the right foot. At least we are all hoping to start our year off on the right foot. It is also the time to hit the reset button from last year. Maybe you didn't accomplish everything that you wanted last year, well now here's your chance! It was this thought that had me thinking of our theme for this month: Do You, Not New. 

Mini Vacation: Kansas City

Michael and I always like to plan a little vacation after harvest to regroup ourselves and our lives after all of the running around. Earlier this week we spent a few nights in KC and it was so perfect. It's just nice to go away and refresh your body and mind, especially right before the holidays.

How to Power Through Your Current Slump

Don’t forget, your journey is yours alone. Do not compare yourself to someone else. Today, right now, this second is part of the journey. You are living right now-- don’t waste this moment. And guess what, you are the only person that can determine if a moment is “wasted”. You get to write your own definitions in life, because this life is yours and yours alone.
