All the traveling, dressing up, poppin’ champagne and photoshoots fills my cup but nothing compares to being at home, in sweats, drinking smoothies, cuddled with the pups- working my biz from the couch 😌🖤 So dang grateful for this life I’m building for myself ✨
You know those ideas where you go, "It's just so simple, it's genius", this idea is one of those. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
While toilet paper is considered a basic necessity, pads are added a so-called “luxury tax” in countries all over the world, placing them in the category of jewellery and wine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s not a luxury to bleed.
Luckily, we can avoid this ridiculous tax, simply by wrapping sanitary pads on a roll – and sell them in the same category as toilet paper aiming to tackle stigmatizing laws. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What to say about these girls: they’re committed! They’re deeply caring, always making me laugh and never letting me forget how much they love me. ❤️ We get to add one more Wilson sister to the group and we could not be more excited and thankful for her to join this crazy girl gang! (We may Or may not be warning her in phone number 2) ❤️ i seriously miss them and wish we could spend every weekend together. I’m cherishing these days we have, even though it’s a thousand degrees and one million percent humid 🥵 It’s a billion times worth it to get to hug and laugh and dance and celebrate and be together again 💕 .

Feature Friday on this Boss Babe Beauty Brand Consultant @valerie.miamac 🖤😍
**WHEN WAS THE MOMENT YOU KNEW YOU HAD TO GO INTO BUSINESS FOR YOURSELF?**
For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to have my own business. I was the queen of “Side Hustle” growing up! And this was before it was actually a cool phrase people used. I dabbled in so many different industries and always had multiple jobs at once. I am very creative, and always thinking of my next “idea”. After saying “I just want to have my own business” enough times, I finally made it happen in 2017 when I left my full-time corporate job.
**HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?**
I was pretty strategic with planning my exit out of the corporate grind. In January 2017, I made it my goal to start creating my business and learning all I could about building a website, branding, business, accounting, and more. I started looking at freelance jobs, sales rep positions, all things that I could do independently (not go into an office). I had to figure out how to supplement a portion of the income I was making at the time so I could leave. I ended up getting hired on with 2 brands to sell/represent their lines and was able to make the move. In October 2017, I went to my boss and told him my plan. AND GUESS WHAT, he turned out to be one of my first clients. 😊Everything was falling into place perfectly, I couldn’t believe how easy it was to transition.
I lived in England for 5 years of my life growing up. My dad was in the Military so I was given the opportunity to travel a lot. Back then I didn’t appreciate it, and longed to live in one place but as I got older I learned to appreciate living in different places and meeting new friends all the time. I think that is why now that I am in my 30’s, moving to a new place doesn’t scare me one bit. I am ready for the next adventure!
**WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?**
A LOT! LOL. A few things I will be focusing on for the second half of the year. 1) Expanding my Beauty Business Breakthrough 8-week program to reach a larger audience. 2) Launching an online course 3) CREATING (I have a few ideas, but its top secret at the moment.)
On Fridays we Flex 💪🏼... today required just 15 minutes of our time before we could throw on our suits and splash around in the pool with our friends for a few hours ... because it’s hotter than the 7th level of hell out there 😝 we can all find time in our day when the little ones we love are watching. What type of example are you setting?
I secretly stalked this girl on Instagram for almost 2 years...
I watched from afar as she completed program after program and got amazing results. I was so jealous and I sat at home seeing all the amazing f adventures she was going on and all the friends she was making. I secretly wished that I could have the life that she was living...
Until finally one day I reached out to her and said “I’m all in! I don’t really know what it is that your doing, but I want in!!” .
From that moment, this girl has been there for me. Pushing me when I needed it and patiently waiting when I needed time. She is the sweetest, kindest, funniest, most genuine (and absolutely gorgeous) girl ever and I finally got to be a part of her glamorous world last weekend! 😊
Now, I’m no longer sitting on the sidelines wishing for a different life. Now I’m living it right along side her, all because I finally said yes.
Don’t wait 2 years! If you are waiting for a sign, or the right “time”, THIS IS IT! Start now so that you can join me on this journey now and not 2 years from now! I jumped...I’m all in! So just jump with me! 😊❤️

What’s on your weekend agenda?🥰
A hot topic in the Instagram space this week was post ‘likes’ being hidden🙌Personally, I think it’s fab...focus on what nourishes & enriches your daily life rather than all the other negative things social media can envoke💗Focus on learning, growing, the positive & get value from your feed, follow accounts that you love for their content & that inspire you🙋🏼♀️💫Who agrees? 💗 #nourishyourself

So happy with the way the label designs turned out for the KH Essentials line! It's so fun to see your heart-and-soul work living it's best life out in the real world. ✨🌿 Happy Friday, my sweet friends! Wishing you a joyful weekend!
✨ My goal is to create a life I don’t need a vacation from ✨
That idea is so appealing to me and it looks different for everyone. 🙌🏻
To me, this very real and tangible vision is one I have written down, imagined in great detail. What it would feel like to never have to worry about student loans 🤭 or make the choice between taking my family on vacation or picking up extra teaching jobs during the summer so we can try to get ahead! 💜. .
So ... I get up a little earlier and stay up a little later to work this business because it gives me an opportunity to build a life and a version of myself I’m proud of. .
It doesn’t mean I have it all together.. or I don’t have days where I want to scream into a pillow because juggling two kids is hard AF right now and my toddler not only has found my last nerve but is actively using it as string on her pink Barbie guitar 🎸 .
It just means I wanted more then I was giving to myself... I wanted to have more confidence in my body .. more Strength in my mind... more friendships more laughing more purpose .. more opportunity for my family... find more of ME! .
And I work with woman that not only feel the same ... but are willing to act on it every damn day.
If you have a vision take action 💥 ... go out and work for it ... surround yourself with people who are doing the same... be unapologetic in your pursuit of finding your best self.... and have fun while doing it!
If your ready to take ACTION with us... Now is the time✊🏼 comment, DM or click link in BIO .. ** check us out looking like a boy band CD cover from the 90s

Just a girl and her dog~
My fave thing about Monji is how full of love he is for everyone. He is literally the sweetest!
Monji is a healer too! He lays on my clients exactly where they have pain or stuck energy. Everyday is an incredible journey being his dogmom and watching him heal so many.

A week disconnected from the world is just what I needed!!! I find that when I step away for short snippets of time, I’m a much better version of ME 💗
Summer is best spent with slow mornings, trips to the snow shack, running through the sprinklers and nights on the lake 💦 No schedule + no screens and it’s magic ✨
Which is exactly what we’ve been doing over here at our house 🏡 - - -
Even Makeup and real clothes are reserved for DATE NIGHT only 😜 #amiright?
How about you!?! Do you wear makeup every day in the summer?? Real clothes or team sundresses and yoga pants!?! 😜🙋🏻♀️

Surround yourself with people who add value to your life.
Who challenge you to be greater than you were yesterday.
Who sprinkle magic into your existence.
Just like you do to theirs.
Life isn’t meant to be done alone, find your tribe and journey freely and loyally together 💕✨

😈Beware of storytelling.
And not the kind you tell you bunkmates late at night, when it’s pitch black, with a flashlight 🔦 under your chin to add ~effect~.
Storytelling in the way that your 🧠 brain creates realities (thats aren’t fact) because you’re anxious and don’t have all the answers so, for instance, you think Addie is mad at you because coach put you in to start as a forward instead of Addie and now she’s not talking to you and ignoring you so you get pissed, and maybe feel a bit guilty, but its not your fault that you’re starting and you didn’t do anything to her so, like, why is she being a bitch?
Byron Katie gives us 4 questions to ask ourselves as a tool to avoid creating a false narrative around why others are behaving out of character, which can feel sudden and unfamiliar.
1️⃣ Is it true?
2️⃣ Can you absolutely know that it’s true?
3️⃣ How do you react, what happens, when you believe that through?
4️⃣ Who would you be without that thought?
These 4 questions help us see clearly instead of going down the rabbit hole of sure destruction.
The action you take after reflecting on these questions is seeking to understand.
You ask Addie what’s wrong, she tells you she bombed her midterm exam and now her GPA has dropped below eligibility, so she’s upset with her self and worried that she’ll be kicked off the team. It actually had nothing to do with the game OR you.
Scientifically speaking, the brain auto-fills in the gaps when we don’t know all the information. We can slow this process down by using this tool.
Stop auto-filling, get curious, and seek to understand others AND yourself.

🙌🏻Hey just do it!! Stop getting in your own way.. How many times have I gotten in my own way?? Stopping the process? Plenty...... Until I learned that I am deserving and enough!! God has led me to this place. He gives me the space. I just need to show up and do what I know to do every day. Not believing any of the lies in my own head. Have the belief and confidence That I am supposed to be here. I am not less than her or him.
To grow up... Growth is all about showing up and not quitting when it’s hard.. when it’s not going as fast as you want.. it’s time to rocket.. I am meant for so much more!! Here I grow!! 🚀🚀 #preachitgirll
