Day 2 of #theheartfeltgrid challenge with @rachel_allene. We were asked to either post ourselves or a picture that fit in with our brand or aesthetics. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know this: black & white, pinks, & pops of gold are my jam. .
I DIY’d this pumpkin yesterday (and some others). 🎃 It was so much fun spray painting them! .
The second part of the challenge is to reveal some things to my audience about myself. So, I’m sharing some of my favorite things:
•Movie: Sound of Music 🎶 •TV Show: Friends, forever!!!! ❤️
•Store: Tie between Target or Hobby Lobby •Food: Mexican (chips & salsa are my jam) •Brand: Kate Spade ♠️ •Season: Fall 🍁🍂(duh!😜) •Coffee Order: Skinny Iced Vanilla Latte☕️
Do you have anything in common with me?! 💕
Time needs to stand still for just a little while so I can love on my babies a bit more before they grow up!
This kid 😍 Those cheeks 👌His heart ❤️His smile 🙌
The love and pure joy that surrounds Thomas 💕 He's an amazing kid 💝
We've been using our linen Elaia towel everywhere - as a scarf, a hair towel, at the beach, as a blanket on a long flight, as a tablecloth on our patio table. Products that are versatile, durable AND beautiful give us LIFE! ✨

What the next month of my life looks like - 2-3 hours of study after every workday, 6 on days off. Two more major assignments and an online module, a lab exam and 3 formal exams, clinical placement, final round of nsw health verification documents, actual job job that pays my bills and brief respites to attend God-baby's birthday party. Basically, ill see y'all in mid November. When it's all over.
Here's a sneak peek at some patterns I've been creating for a client project! 🌼😍 Days spent drawing and painting, while listening to the Outlander audiobook (it's been my favourite novel for about ten years, and I've read the series three times so far!) ... those are my favourite kind of days.
The rainy weather outside is helping, too. 🌧

When one of your favourite designers collaborates with Disney 💞👰🏻💫The results are magical. Shame I'm more like one of the ugly sisters rather than a Disney princess, but one can dream 🤣 Designer @paolo_sebastian / Collaboration @disney Photography @dimiitra_
@yellowcabpizza gives me a board and I said, I will continue my hunger in nourishing children around me. I actually started two groups namely @uhappyevents, a kids NGO and @alwayshungryph, my personal food blog. Together am making it happen with the help of other ❤️ people. 😊🍕 #fuelthehungry#nostoppingthehungry
You don't need to be a world renowned EXPERT to start your own business.
All ‘experts’ start from zero. We all had 3 followers (2 of which were our parents) at one point 🤓 I built my list one person at a time.
To start a coaching or consulting business, all you need is to be a couple of steps ahead of your potential clients in the field you have some knowledge in. People need help, people WANT to hear from you.
Think about it – who would you hire if you wanted to learn to sing? Would it be Adele? I doubt it!
Or if you wanted to play tennis – would you hire Serena Williams? Of course not! Your local singing or tennis teacher would be perfectly well suited to help you master the basics because they are a few steps ahead of you.

I mean... just a casual 16 days late. But it was so beautiful today, so here's to a month that always brings me so much happiness with crisp, sunny days, bright, crunchy leaves, hot coffee + cozy blankets, two of my favorite people's birthdays, and this year, two of my closest friends' weddings. Oh and fuzzy socks, obvi. K, now bring on the rain, WA 🙄 | #monyaymovement#littlethingstheory#krisannaelizabethdesign#seattlecalligrapher#paperlove
G R A T E F U L is the key word of the week apparently. Its funny how your heart starts to sing over the simplest of things when your life gets turned upside down! Today is day seven of the Sonoma county fires. My family and I were displaced for 5 days at my brother in laws house. Gratitude doesn't begin to express my feelings for that man this week!! But then a couple of days ago we decided to go back to our home so the kids could sleep in their own beds. [Full disclosure it was a MUST! Our youngest was having the HARDEST time with the unknown that was living through a disaster and was peeing the bed every. single. night. 😩 And the first night back and each night since: not a drop!! 🙌🙌] We knew that our house had electricity, but that the gas hadn't been turned on yet, and thought no biggie it will be on in a couple of days we can make it. Oh my gooooodness. Man, we can't do laundry, we can't take baths, or showers or have the heater on.... I even thought nbd I'll just wash everything on cold. Its not like you HAVE to wash stuff in hot water. Well that part is true, but apparently gas is also needed to DRY clothes.... who'd a thought, right? 😭😭 so right now I am so so so so so grateful to my incredible mama in law, who not only raised me some hot hunk to love, but also let me take a H O T shower and guys..... she did ma laundry.... for me 😢. This woman y'all. She's saintly, and I am so grateful to call her mine!! She got an extra big hug from me tonight!!

Had such a fun time at the fair this year. I didn’t ride a zillion rides or play a zillion games. I took some pictures with the gorgeous @jaimespedersen which look amazingggg. Just walking around and being happy where I was in that moment was the best part of the night. Oh and the biggest bag of cotton candy you’ve ever seen. 🙈#ncstatefair
@sobremesaph got another thing going with their BurritoFull campaign of two Latin American burritos (beef & chicken) for just Php 400! Available until Oct 21 only! Are you a fan of these? 🌯 #alwayshungryph
So I've got a ton of messages about these shirts and where I got them from. And wanted to make sure that everyone had the deets. I bought them from an incredible company in Petaluma called Zephyr sportswear. If you ever have any screening needs please go to them because they started printing these shirts a few days ago to raise money for fire fighters who lost their homes during the Sonoma fires. They have literally sold out every day and are running out of fabric and material to print on because everyone wants to help our incredible first responders!! But think about that for a second, bc they're cranking these out at such an alarming rate they're probably not making an earning at all right now, plus the cost of expenses they're actually probaby losing money right now just to help others. That right there is what I call service!! I'm so grateful for all the examples of service that I keep seeing every time I turn around!! #sonomastrong#sonoma#superheroes#hugyourfirefighter#zephyrpacificsportswear#community#santarosaonfire#tubbsfire#sonomaproud
What are you asking for in your life?
Are you asking for JUST enough?
Or are you stretching yourself? Because if you are only asking to JUST get by or to JUST pay your bills, you are selling yourself short.
Consider not only the things you can buy, but the things you would like to experience so you can connect to the feeling of what those things represent.. Allow yourself to embody the vision.
Add something pleasurable...paying bills or paying off debt is not as inspiring as going to a beautiful dinner or a weekend trip with your lover. Have fun and allow your imagination to open up new possibility for you.
