I feel like life is moving a million miles per minute! In case you missed my recent article here, Naiya has officially turned one! We threw a unicorn party for her at a local park with close friends and family and I may or may not have gone completely overboard with decorations and gluten-free, sugar-free cake. Yeah–I totally became that mom. Sharing a recent mom and baby outfit post with you today that’s all about all pink everything. Can’t wait to share Naiya’s birthday photos soon!
I can’t believe summer is already so close to over–especially since it’s currently a whopping 112 degrees in LA! Regardless of the fact that we’re roasting away out here, every August, I love sprinkling pieces into my wardrobe that can seamlessly carry over into fall. Excited to share a lace dress with you today you need to know about because it’s a perfect transitional piece, it’s affordable and uber-versatile.
Whether you own your own business or you’re someone who dabbles in social media for fun, in today’s crazy world, we have all become our own brands. Over the past couple of months, I’ve received a bunch of messages from people asking me how to grow their brands on social media from the ground up. Since I’ve enjoyed connecting with them so much individually, today I’m sharing the top 5 ways you too can build your own brand from the ground-up and ultimately become your own boss.
Now that I’m a mom, I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’d tell my younger self if I could go back in time. There are so many experiences I’ve been through that I’m seeing differently now–especially in raising a little girl who I’m hoping will grow up to become a #girllboss who truly knows her worth. I don’t ever want Naiya to be under the impression that there is a glass ceiling keeping her away from reaching any of the goals she sets out to accomplish. While glass ceilings still seem to exist in so many industries, my fingers are crossed that Naiya’s generation will help set out to change that.
Have you ever thought about what success means to you? Have you ever really taken the time to break it down? My husband was one of the first people to ask me these questions. I’ll never forget sitting on one of our first dates at a complete loss for words, unable to articulate my answer or even wrap my head around it. I realized in that moment that I couldn’t fully define success and it make me totally uncomfortable. I had been chasing the word “success” since I could remember but I realized that I had never fully honed in on whether it included attaining a certain dream, hitting a particular salary, etc. While success is still an ever-changing definition for me, now that I’m a mom, I want to open up about how it’s shaping my daily life. In addition to today’s outfit post, I’m rounding up some tips in terms of how to reshape your view of success too (especially if you’re a perfectionist like me).
