I can’t believe it has been a year since I left my corporate job to start my business. I am not going to lie, this year is flying by!! The main reason why this year is going by so fast is because I literally have been on the move. My business has been non-stop, in a great way! Running a business is not easy, and there’s days when I question myself and what I am doing, but I keep pushing and I stay motivated.
This past week I literally cleaned out my entire closet to organize and make room for all of my spring/summer styles. This summer, my key focus is all about easy, comfortable, and effortless style. I literally got rid of ten bags of clothes because I essentially wanted to start over with my summer wardrobe and get pieces that work with my summer mood.
It is an amazing time of the year! Spring weather is peeking through and my travel plans are ramping up!! I am so excited to be headed to Florida in a week to celebrate my cousin’s graduation!! The entire family will be in town, so the weekend will consist of tons of family fun and festivities! I am super excited about our traditional Mother’s Day brunch that we will celebrate while there!
Spring is right around the corner and we are counting down the days until Easter, Easter egg hunts, and Easter baskets!! I told myself that I will not wait until the last minute to make Aria's Easter basket, so we ventured to our local candy store to pick up some goodies to taste test some goodies to add to the list for the Easter bunny!
I am officially 30!! I talked about what I am focusing on now that I am entering my thirties in my last blog post. One of the things I am focusing on is loving harder and spending more time sustaining and building my friendships.
At 16, I specifically remember writing down my goals for where I would be by the time I turned 30. I wrote that I would be married with two kids, driving a Range Rover (my dream car) and a doctor!! Yes, a doctor. For some reason, I thought that being a doctor would mean that I was super successful and rich, boy has that “goals list” changed!! When I was between the ages of 16 up until about 24, 30 seemed like such the “real adult age”. The age that I gave myself a deadline to have everything done!!
Christmas is my favorite time of the year! I LOVEEEE it! My family has always been very big on Christmas and all of our many traditions. I think I believed in Santa until I was 10 years old haha. My parents did it all for me and my little sister, so it is without question that Ernest and I are doing the same for Aria.
Want to know one of my favorite things about being a mom? Yes, having an adorable daughter is one, but a close second is the mother-daughter matching moments!! I am so in love with it. Four years ago when I first found out I was having a little girl, that was one of the first things I couldn't wait to do haha!
Here I am, six months into launching this blog! Boy, has it been one hell of a year. I still have to pinch myself when I realize I am my own boss and living out the dream that I set for myself. I have learned so much this year, about myself as a mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend.
Lately, all I have been in the mood to wear is sweats and an oversized tee; basically, my everyday work-from-home uniform. I typically love getting dressed up in more posh styles, like tailored pants and chic blouses. But, my mood usually determines my style, and the relaxed look is so me right now.
I will be the first to admit that red typically is not my first choice when it comes to clothing items. I don’t know why, but I use to shy away from the color. But this season, I am all about it! If you have not noticed, red has been everywhere this fall and I must admit, I have fallen for the hue.
So I posted this picture yesterday on my Instagramand I received SO MUCH LOVE!! Everyone was loving this look, especially the boots! So I decided to add this quick look to the blog with links for you to shop!
It is hard not to love kimonos, this one in particular has been my favorite all summer. If I could wear it everyday, I think I would. It is so easy to pair it with anything from swimsuits, to jeans to something dressy.
I literally have been non-stop, traveling to 4 different cities in less than a week and a half for work! And when I say "work", I mean doing my own thing, my business! I have to pinch myself sometimes to realize I am really living within my passion! When I decided to go full-time on my business things changed for
Let me start this post by saying, I have an AMAZING relationship with my mother. My mother is my best friend. I can call her and tell her anything: vent, cry, laugh, and be real with her. It has always been that way.
I am writing this blog post as I stress about the million things I have to do right now. Literally, I have a ton of stuff on my to-do list and I am questioning whether I will truly get it done by the deadline. Ahhh!
Everyone has friends (I hope). Some of us have a ton of friends, and some of us may have a few friends. We may have friends that we have had for years or friends that we have had for months, but one thing I have learned about friendships...
I am SO HERE for Victoria Becham's Target collection!! The moment I found out about it, I was SO EXCITED! Victoria Beckham is definitely in my top favorites for style, so the fact that I can have a piece of her style at an affordable price range is everything!!!
Ahhh it is finally here, and I am so excited to share my new website with you all!! This website is the next chapter of my blogging career and life and I am so anxious to start this new journey! To say 2017 started off fast, would be an understatement!
I honestly ask myself when will this trend die? Will it ever die? As all trends, there are peaks and valleys. I mean, look at flare jeans, I never would have thought those would have come back in style like they did.
