Self

It took me a minute to figure out what to call this category because it encompasses SO much, but I kept coming back to the ideas of all things “SELF” and how to become a better version of yourself. And I don’t mean changing or becoming something different, but instead honing in on your natural talents and become the best version of who you already are!

My Current Morning Ritual

Happy Tuesday, friends! I am loving this cool weather that makes it actually feel like winter outside. Don’t get me wrong, the 70-degree days are amazing too, but there’s something about a crisp winter morning that wakes me up and energizes me throughout the day. I’ve talked before about the importance of a good morning routine. In fact, I’ve even shared my secrets to a better morning. But as any…

I’ve talked to so many of you who told me you have the same issue once the holiday decorations start coming down, so I decided to offer a few tips on getting past the post-holiday slump. Prioritize Self-Care Whenever I’m feeling in a rut, I…

How to Set Your Business Up for Success in 2022

If you’re like me, you may have spent the past couple of weeks doing all the self-assessments, planning, goal setting, reflection, etc. I’ve mentioned in a few posts recently that I just love this time of year. The fresh slate is so motivating to me, and I love really digging deep and doing the hard work to figure out where I can (and want to) improve this year. For me, planning…

5 Things Successful People Do Every January

Whether it’s a new job, new house, or new year, I love a fresh start! I think there is something so exciting about getting a clean slate to create whatever opportunities you want. That’s why I’m such a huge fan of the New Year. We’re given 365 days ahead and it’s up to us to figure out the story we want to tell! Recently, I was doing some research on…

My 2022 Word of the Year

Happy New Year, y’all! It feels so good to be back in the groove of things after the holidays. I totally geek out over the beginning of the year — I just love making goals for the year ahead and planning out all of our trips, big events, etc. It feels like we all get a fresh slate, and the opportunities are endless! This year, Duncan and I spent some…

How and Why to Do a Self-Assessment of Your Life [Free Download!]

Merry Christmas week, y’all! Can we just take a collective deep breath and acknowledge that we’re here. There’s been so much going on (for all of us) that it feels like Christmas came out of nowhere this year. I love this time of year so much, though, so I’m making an effort to fully embrace this week and all of the craziness that it brings. I want to be fully…

Happy Monday, friends! This weekend was so good for my soul. I spent time with my family and then got to attend a good friend’s engagement party. It was was one of those weekends where you just feel recharged on Sunday night even though you were busy all weekend long, do you know what I mean? It made me feel so grateful for the amazing people in my life, and…

What I’m Saying No to This Year

When I was brainstorming New Year’s content, this topic is something that came to mind and I was intrigued by it but didn’t know if I wanted to write it. Sometimes putting this kind of stuff out there is cathartic but also can add pressure because what if I do something I said I didn’t want to on IG Stories for all of y’all to see?? This mindset definitely goes back to me being a perfectionist but I thought, ya know what? Maybe putting it out there will help hold me accountable! And I already know I’m not perfect LOL, so I guess there won’t be any real letdowns there.

What Y’all Loved Most in 2020 & My Favorites

Wow, what a year 2020 was!! So much to reflect back on and think about, too much TBH, ha. BUT, one of my favorite things to do at the start of every year is to share what products y’all loved most from the previous year. Not only is this data super helpful to me for content purposes but I just find it fascinating!! It’s like getting a small peek inside…

We’re Moving Back To Texas

Hi friends! I’m SO thrilled to finally be sharing about our huge move! It has taken up SO much brain space lately and I’m excited to be able to talk and share about it openly now that things are settled and in place (probably goes without saying… there were a lot of moving pieces that needed to get sorted before sharing…).

Things I’m Doing to Feel Good Right Now + Lululemon favorites

There’s no doubt 2020 has brought lots of negativity, but I’ve always been (or tried to be at least) a glass half full kind of girl. I don’t always succeed at it, but lately, I’ve been trying to remind myself of all the GOOD  and everything making me feel happy right now. I really want to spread that positivity to you guys too so I decided to write a little…

How to Deal with Negative Self-Talk

Negative self-talk is an issue I deal with frequently and I want to put it out there because I think we all can be unnecessarily hard on ourselves every once in a while. I know I write a lot about positivity and self-care, etc. but the truth is, I have some down moments of my own and can find myself in a really negative headspace sometimes. I try really hard…

Why You Need a Self-Care Plan and How to Make One

How often do you prioritize caring for yourself? If you’re like me or most women I know, it’s not often enough. This is why in today’s post I want to address why self-care is important and why you need a self-care plan. I have to actively remember to take care of myself more times than not and have found, like most, self-care is still a struggle for me to prioritize…

What I Do When I Feel Comparison Creeping In

Want to know something I’ve realized in the last few months? That phrase – “comparison is the thief of joy” is 100% accurate. I can be going along with life, happy as can be, and then I come across something on IG that makes me feel like I’m “behind” or “not successful enough”, etc. and just like that, I’m on a downward spiral. And with SO many amazing people sharing…

Why you Need a Bliss List and What’s on Mine

Ever heard of a bliss list? It’s kind of a new concept to me, but I think it makes total sense. Basically, for me at least, the idea is to have a go-to list of things you KNOW will make you happy. This way, when you’re feeling overwhelmed or life is crazy (AKA Covid!), you have some solid ideas on how to “bliss out”. I don’t know about you but…

How to Check in On Your New Year’s Resolutions

There’s a good chance that a large majority of you are 100% over any resolutions you made at the start of 2020. Given everything this year has brought, I don’t blame you at all. In fact, I’m a little bit in the same boat. But that was one of the biggest reasons I wanted to write this post! It’s during the times we want to quit most that we should take a sec to reflect on why we should keep going, right? Or something like that LOL.
