Empowering Each Other

Hello darlings! Happy Sunday! :)

How was everyones week? Mine was filled with Vegas. California. My husband. Our friends. & making memories that will last a lifetime! It was such a fun filled vacation! Just what we like :) 

I truly love adventures in unfamiliar places! Don't you? :) 

The one thing I love about my blog:
Getting inspired & sharing my thoughts with the world. Today, I was feeling extremely blessed &  grateful thinking of where I am in life & all that I have accomplished. My passion has truly turned into a business - with lots of hard work! But because of that hard work, it has led to a large clientele & with that comes: success. 

Getting to share exciting news, show my before & afters on clients, previews of my latest photo session, and exciting sponsorships, would mean nothing if I had no one to share them with. Luckily, I have such a huge support system: my husband, my best friends, and my family. 
- you guys too! (: 

We all have that group of people we can text within seconds of finding out something exciting. Those people are the ones that have pushed and supported you from day one. I feel so blessed to not only have my husband + family, but I have my group of girls I can run to, no matter the time of day. They are right there - cheering me on! The same goes when the tables are turned. I love to see my friends succeed at whatever they may be working for, and when they get excited to share great news, I'm right there with my #1 fan sign! 

& that's where my inspiration came from with this post. 

Encouraging each other is so meaningful! If the world had more people shouting out their talents rather than their faults - who knows what the world could be like...

Imagine the capability one would have it we took the time to recognize their hidden talents?

It seriously makes my heart happy when I see others promoting each other. It takes a lot for someone to be selfless and think of others and their talents! When I see an individual helping out someone by sharing their work, their name, their website: whatever the case may be..THAT is something beautiful. THAT is something I admire, and THAT is the reason I am always pushing & reminding others of their talents & what they CAN do and ACHIEVE with their life! When you're at a great place in life doing what you love, you can't help but feel on cloud 9. You want to share it with the world, you want to push everyone you possibly can, because you know that feeling is the most incredible feeling in the whole entire world. 

If someone inspires you; tell them.
If someone is getting out of their comfort zone to do what they want; push them.
If someone is reaching out to you with an idea; listen to them.
If someone is doing great things with their life; congratulate them.

You never know what your words can do for a person. Your words can really uplift their spirits & you can be that push they've secretly been needing to hear!

I hope this inspired you, big or small :) I'll see you in my next post!

Grab your Backpacks, ladies!

Say YES to backpacks & GOODBYE to purses for your next trip!

Hello my lovelies! :) I've missed my blogging in pajamas & reading your comments from all over the world! It feels great to be back! 

Todays topic: Backpacks vs Purses for your next trip!

Lately, the hubby & I have had the Travel Bug! We've been non stop making new memories and experiencing new adventures all over! Because of that, I've definitely learned what works well & what doesn't when it comes to travel! In the past times, I'd take a huge purse on our vacations - thinking "Perfect! Everything will fit in here!" but then after a few hours of exploring I'm like "Omg, I want to throw away this purse, my shoulders hurt, it's too big!" Other times, I have used the smallest side purse and after a while of shopping, taking pictures, and souvenirs I'm thinking: "Nothing fits in here!" You know how easy it is to just throw something in your purse? And little by little it starts adding up: your phone, keys, bottle of water, map (if you're out of the country) the list can easily add up!

So, after those little experiences I've come down to the easiest way to travel: stylish backpacks! 

Yes, backpacks! For a while, all you would see were school backpacks & nowadays you can find some of the cutest backpacks with great designs, all leather, and even solid and fabric prints! I've seen some great bargain ones & high end backpacks that are absolutely perfect for your next trip!

I took my first backpack to our honeymoon in Paris! 

It was life changing (real dramatic!) but really, it made everything that much easier! To have your hands FREE on vacation was the best! To not have your forearm killing you, to not have your shoulders bothering you, or the "hey babe hold my purse real fast while I take photos!" was the best feeling ever!

Backpacks are so versatile! I love that you can dress up any outfit in such a fun stylish way with them! And the plus side, you CAN fit quite a bit of items in there! But also, they have a good amount of space where you want to pack just the necessities! 

This is my newest "travel" backpack designed by: Badgley Mischka. I'm in love with the quality! & I also love that it isn't too big! Because there are large backpacks out there, but the bigger you get it the more items you're going to want to stuff in there on your trip! So for me, this is the perfect size! It fits just the right amount for the necessities! 

What do you prefer on your trip?
Happy Travels!

I'll see you in my next blog post! Tomorrow is vacation time & this little baby will be riding with us!
