Planning a trip with a friend has me thinking of small adventures I want to be having all summer long ...whose with me!? 😉 @RepostApp ======> @island_features:📷 by @dbtravelandlife: "Truly one of the most magical, surreal, perfect places I have ever traveled... The Maldives."

I'm sure that all of us at some point have looked at someone we're inspired by and thought, "They're so awesome! But I could never do what they do."
And it's not that we don't WANT to do what they do. It's that we have a hard time believing that WE could operate that their level. .
But the truth is that all of the most inspiring and successful people out there face the same types of fears and self-doubt as we do; the main difference however, is that they choose to RESPOND differently. .
The key to overcoming self-doubt and comparison is BELIEF. When you know who you are, and that what you have to offer is valid, then it gives you the confidence to pursue your passion in a way that is unique to you.

The next stop on our #pride herstory tour takes us to Park Slope, Brooklyn. (Original 📸 @megandunkno) The Lesbian Herstory Archives hold some 11,000 books and many more periodicals celebrating the rich legacy of lesbian literature. After the Stonewall riots in 1969 many groups formed to celebrate the voice of LGBTQ+ peoples in NYC and abroad. Founder Joan Nestle organized a group to preserve lesbian herstory. Due to rampant sexism the group was concerned their herstory would be lost. This post is dedicated to our lesbian sisters, and the courageous group dedicated to preserving that herstory. I'm so proud to be a part of this community, and to celebrate the achievements of our sisters and non-binary members of our community who work to celebrate and preserve the multi-faceted beauty in words, song, pictures and stories. Love is love! Happy pride my bb's. Every day is a pride parade! Live your life! 🌈💕 #WHP 🌈
A fabulous article from @huffpost about the Fashion Fund, our magical evening and our very own "force of nature." One of our favorite excerpts, "a mere two years after an idea was conceived over dinner with friends, Mrs. Sherman has raised almost $2 million and this weekend achieved a major feat. She brought fashion icon and living legend, former editor-at-large at @voguemagazine, André Leon Talley to St. Louis." 💕✨ Link in bio to read the full article ☝️📸: @suzygormanphoto
Solid Sunday spent with wonderful (+ insanely talented) creative humans making cool stuff for the sake of making cool stuff. Pic: my small in-progress snippet of a larger piece that everyone quite literally crushed – their sections blow mine out of the water – seriously, wait til you see the whole thing 💥#summerofsketching
Special shoutout to @wetherbeecreativeco for making it all happen and providing stellar snacks 👌🏼
I have not unpacked yet but slowly unraveling my purchases. These are available for now. The lamp will be even more beautiful if the shade was of black and white stripes. The leather ice bucket is a classic and will be an heirloom piece. Patina of leather will get better as it ages. #entertaining#tabletop#tablescape#icebuckets#lamps#homedecor#designlife
Swipe for the BEFORE. This kitchen refresh is complete. We swapped out the blue laminate countertops for quartz, the ceramic tile backsplash for limestone, the drop in sink for a composite undermount and a sexy new faucet. We also updated the decor on the top of the cabinets. You don't always need a full kitchen renovation.
