People will always have something to say, but this life is yours to live- not theirs.
Trust me when I say I’ve dealt with people thinking they can live my life better than me. “What are you doing here?” “What are you doing there?” “Why are you working there?” “Why are you living there?” “Why are you dating them?” Why don’t you do ___?” “If I we’re you I would be ______”.
I get it at least weekly. Some of it’s well-intentioned. Some of it (definitely) isn’t. But when I get to the end of my life, I’m responsible for how I chose to live- not for how they wanted me to live. ✨
People will talk. Let them talk. While they’re talking you’re working towards your goals and your dreams and they will only have wasted their time talking about you. It’s so much easier said than done, but at the end of the day you’re the only one responsible for how you chose to live your life. No one else can take that from you. 💫
Once upon a time restaurants were a place to buy and eat food 🥘. Now, in the digital age we live in, just serving food is not sufficient 🙅🏼♀️.
Today, restaurants (and retailers alike) are judged on their overall aesthetics 🖼 almost more-so than the products/services they sell 🛍.
We’ve seen it time and time again, a restaurant or store that explodes on social media 🤩. Their actual product or service may not be the best, but their beautiful aesthetics are enough to boost them to the🔝 of pack.
These Insta-famous, brick and mortar locations are all well designed 👌🏼, highly visible 👀, and immediately shareable 📸 (aka instagramable).
The premise is really quite simple: if you want to be shared on social media you have to create a scene that’s worth sharing ☺️! This could be a colorful mural, a trendy sitting area, an art installation, or even a unique way of plating or packaging your product. Whatever it is, it needs to be unique, recognizable, and something that your consumers can insert themselves into and really make their own! 👩🏻🎨
It’s a brilliant strategy 🤓! Essentially you set the scene for a beautiful, branded photo shoot and then sit back and let the millennials and Gen Xers do their thing as they snap 📸, share 📲 and repost 🤳🏼 your business over and over again!
A couple get examples of this are as follows: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⭐️ @eatflowerchild with their floor to ceiling rainbow murals at every location
⭐️ @catch with their jaw dropping interiors and signature #hitmedesert
What are some other examples of successful instagramable businesses you’ve seen?? (Comment below! 👇🏼)

Finishing up the WIP from yesterday! I love doing final touches such as these to make a piece really come together 🙌🏻 what do you do to make your pieces feel complete?
Today’s one of those days where you snuggle up with the pooch and bring your laptop and tea into bed. Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful for the rain, but a little sunshine and warmth would be greatly appreciated. ✨

Dreaming of springtime 🌼🌿🌷 There's no sign of it yet, we have snow on the ground & it's currently 26 degrees! 🥶 But at least my potted plants indoors have spring fever too -- they're all growing new buds. 🌱
Since life doesn't always give you this reminder, I thought maybe you could hear it from me: You are doing great. 🥰You are already amazing. 💕The work you are putting in right now will absolutely be worth it in the end. 👏🏻Keep that beautiful head up high & do your best to always radiate those good vibes✌🏻. Kapeesh? 😊👑 #saturdayvibes Tag a friend who needs the reminder!!!

In case you missed it, Rachel Wentworth is this week’s muse on the podcast. Have you listened? We talk about burnout, the importance of having a business plan, what it takes to open a brick and mortar, and how body positivity plays a roll in her business.
Rachel is the Co-Founder of @fortywinkshs, a lingerie shop located in Cambridge, Massachusetts (swipe to see the shop). But I found her through her podcast, @keepingshoppodcast, where she interviews the owners of brick and mortar businesses.
If you’ve ever wanted to open a brick and mortar business, this episode is for you! Tune in wherever you get your podcasts!

If you're creating a MOVEMENT online, you know you're a THOUGHT LEADER and INFLUENCER (coaches, consultants, bloggers, etc.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And you're NOT seeing the results you desire, (clients, impact, money, etc.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You're prob NOT showing up as who you TRULY are!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you were to ask yourself - If there were NO CONSEQUENCES, NO WAY OF FAILING, NO REJECTION POSSIBLE, No way that I could post anything "wrong," what would you ACTUALLY POST/SAY online?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if you ACTUALLY didn't care what so and so was gonna think or say!?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This question in my biz has seriously set me free! I used to always just post little tips and tricks, kill myself doing hour long live videos showing people EVERYTHING, the ins and outs of online tech systems, FOR FREE - thinking that's what people wanted and if I PLEASED them, then I would look like the real deal in their eyes!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, let's just say people can feel any DESPERATION or needing to PLEASE! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And if YOU'RE feeling bored, uninspired, and wondering why the dream clients ain't coming, everyone else is bored too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You will know when your content is 🔥 and magnetic to your TRIBE - it's a distinct inner knowing, that you're actually being a mouthpiece for GOD to serve and love his people.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How can you start being less filtered, and AUTHENTIC to you ASAP? What would you ACTUALLY start talking about, that's a TRUE passion, vs the cookie cutter tips and advice you're giving that everyone else is too? 🧐

I snuck back into bed with my coffee and laptop to do the Enneagram test. 😂
Yup this ENFJ, Manifesting Generator who loves quality time, acts of service and words of affirmation (see what I did there?) hasn't even taken this test yet. What?!
But it seems that everyone and their puppy knows their number and “wing”? So I'm taking the leap and joining the cult. @brightlyandcompany and @emyleesays you'd be so proud of me. 😂😂
Hit a girl up with your fave Enneagram resources (and the right test please) and tell me what you are :)
Did you think I forgot to get a Valentines Collection family photo?? Well I didn’t!📸 Look at all these cuties cuddled together in their finest pink outfits! Don’t they just look swell?😂😊
V-day collection was so much fun, I’m missing these pieces already! While the March restock will be all wraparound designs(peaks,canyons,etc.), I’m starting to think about the next collection for April! What would you guys like to see? It could be anything really!🤔😏✨
Officially launched the Client Welcome Guide to my email list and am SO excited about it... but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit nervous. 🙈 this is my first digital product + it feels vulnerable and scary —I just keep reminding myself how much I needed this when I first started & how helpful it’s going to be to both new & established designers.
To those who have already purchased or plan to today, thank you from the bottom of my heart. 🖤
