5 Inspiring Quotes to Motivate Creative Entrepreneurs

Hello Loves!

We all have those days. Days where remembering why we're pushing ourselves so hard becomes a little blurry.

Days where we need that motivation to keep going. That support. Going after your dreams and your passion, although definitely worth the effort, is not a walk in the park.

Actually it's the exact opposite. It requires strength, drive and dedication.

But that's what this post is about! Providing inspiration and support.

5 Simple Ways I'm Making My Life Better

5 Simple Ways I'm Making My Life Better

At the beginning of 2015 one of my main goals or ambitions was to find easy to implement lifestyle changes that would have an impact and  help bring balance to my life. As I've mentioned before, not only do I want to chase my dreams but I want to make them a reality.

I think taking care of yourself both physically and mentally is absolutely vital in order to be able to achieve this. Why? Because if you're not feeling your best how can you bring your A-game to your goals? How can you find the stamina to keep going through the hard times?

Starting a blog? 7 Valuable Posts that Will Make Yours Better

Starting a blog? 7 Valuable Posts that Will Make Yours Better

When the idea of starting my own blog began the excitement I felt was inevitable and welcomed. This led to a massive amount of researching and planning (because I can't seem to do things any other way lol) and then it hit.

Overwhelm.

I mean I just googled the words 'blogging tips' and got 35 million hits! And don't even get me started started on Pinterest or YouTube. I don't know about you, but I'm the kind of person that when I decide to take on a project I get obsessive about it. I want to know every last detail and viewpoint on the subject. I research, observe and absorb any crumb of information that I can get my hands on. I like knowing all my options.

Now although this can be very beneficial in making informed choices, it can also quickly become overwhelming and time consuming as new posts are constantly popping up each day. There is a definitive information overload!

Why Sometimes the Best Thing for Your Blog is Not Blogging

Why Sometimes the Best Thing for Your Blog is Not Blogging

One morning I woke up and just didn't want to. It felt like a chore and responsibility. It wasn't fun anymore. So I simply decided not to. 

So as you may have noticed I've been a little MIA for a while now and I do apologize for the disappearing act. I woke up one morning and "the plan" was to work on the blog before heading to my full-time job, but then I was hit with intense feelings of disdain and resistance.

Why?  

For one I wasn't enjoying it. I'm the kind of person who generally will want to do the "right-thing" or the responsible thing whether I'm enjoying it or not for the simple reason that I said I would. When I make a commitment I put a lot of pressure on myself to keep to it - that is until I hit my breaking point and then I'm done.

Is this just me?

Get Inspired! My Awesome 2015 Reading List

Hello Gorgeous! 

As long as I can remember I've always loved reading, to the point as a child I use to read 3 to 6 books simultaneously because I couldn't pick which one to start with lol . To this day when I read, especially fiction books, it allows me to escape into the lives and worlds that the author has taken the time to create for us. This is great for when life throws you some curve-balls and your mind just needs a distraction from the real world. My goal for 2015 is to try and find balance between the important aspects of my life including my job, side hustle, spirituality, family, friends and other passions I enjoy. I recently realized that one passion I haven't made time for is reading. I always feel that I'm too busy or that something else needs to take priority and it gets pushed to the side, something I'm sure many of you can relate to. The reality is that reading does to my brain what exercise does for the body. It re-energizes, provides a sense of accomplishment and puts a smile on my face :)

Day Designer - My First Impression

Day Designer - My First Impression

Hello Gorgeous! 

So a little while back  I decided to spoil myself by splurging and investing in the
Day Designer planner by Whitney English.  Although I may have a *cough cough* small addiction when it comes to stationary items, I've never previously invested this much in a planner . It actually took me forever to decide whether to buy it or not. I've been a regular YouTube watcher, and had been seeing reviews on several different planners and three caught my eye: the Erin Condren Life Planner, the Simplified Planner by Emily Ley and the Day Designer.  I thought it might be interesting to give you my thoughts and first impressions of the Day Designer and why I chose this one over the other two planners. 

Let me start off by explaining why I didn't choose the Erin Condren Life Planner or the Simplified Planner. The EC Life Planner was actually the first what I've dubbed "high end" planner, that I was exposed to. I fell ABSOLUTELY in love with the gold foil design on white background cover, yet I couldn't justify spending the money when the layout of at a week at glance really doesn't work for me. I need room to write my friend, lots of room :)
