Why You Need to be Your Own Best Friend & How To Do So

As I’m currently writing this, I’m sitting with head in a sink at my hair salon. Every time I come to get my hair down, It is my time to actually be able to read my book and put myself in deep thought and reflection. I unfortunately never am able to take the time to read like I would like to, but on this day, every 8 weeks, I get to drink red wine and read my book and maybe take a nap when my Head is in the sink ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Moving on, the book I’m currently reading is Girl Boss by Cara Alwill Leyba. I could go on and on about how great this book is, but I don’t want to ruin It for you. So, you’ll just have to pick up your copy right here. OR head on over to my Instagram and enter to win your very own copy. Now, I will share a few things I do love about this book. It really helps you to think about your inner #girlboss and It is basically a work book along with a guide. There are even incredible stories from different empowering women that I, personally, would love to meet.Read More »

Self Love Practices In Honor of Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day lovelies! I hope you are spending today feeling like you own the damn place.

So yesterday was Galentine’s Day and I spent It at work all day, had some class and then got to celebrate with my sisters. We played games, took pictures and ate pizza and cupcakes! We sang to old songs from Jonas Brothers and Hannah Montana and danced and just had an all around good time.

Off of that, I think that self-love is also very important for this Valentine’s Day season. In my latest Insta post, you can see how I practice self-love. If you missed It, don’t worry, I put It below! I have heard a lot of people talking down on themselves lately and I have a feeling that Valentine’s Day is a reason why. People tend to feel lonely and just out of whack. But remember, you’re never alone and the person who will always be there for you is… yourself. You need to be your biggest cheerleader. Don’t wait around for someone else to be your cheerleader when you can rock the world all by your damn self.Read More »

Why It Is Okay to Not Be Okay & 5 Ways to Help Pull Yourself Back Together

“It takes 10 times longer to pull yourself back together than it takes to fall a part”.

Why is it okay to not be okay?

This is simple… because we are human. We are not born to be perfect, zero emotion creatures. We all f*ck up and we all get sad and that is what makes us human. Cry because you need to. You are allowed, it is okay. But remember, you will always be okay.

You are allowed to not be okay because something has happened and it has knocked you off your feet. That is the point. This obstacle came here to knock you down. When you hit the ground, it will hurt, it may hurt more than anything you have ever felt. You will take minute, you don’t have to stand right away, and you will feel the pain. Sometimes it knocks the air out of you and you have to find your breathe before you do anything. But, the fact of the matter is, you will still get up. You will get back up on your feet and you will walk forward. That is not an option. You fall to stand taller and stronger than you ever have before.
