As a creative it can be easy to fall into the comparison trap. ha! actually, i think its easy for all of us to fall into that trap. those self inflicting internal beat down sessions can leave your delicate creative spirit feeling discourage, defeated, and hopeless. 😳anybody with me?🙋
i have found that what separates the creatives from the creative professionals though is what you decide to do in those moments. the truth is, it’s not that you don’t have what it takes or that you’re not good enough...it might be that you’re not actually trying!!! 😜
so, start creating stuff you're proud of!!!👊🏼⚡️
stuff that lights you up!!!!!!💥
and make a lot of it!
Happy snow day from greenville, sc! and shoutout to my dad for being the best instagram dad all these years! here’s to hoping edward is as good at impromptu shoots and up for being a killer #instagramhusband starting this september😂 after i asked my dad to come outside to take this i said, “i don’t know if edward knows what he’s getting into!” and he quickly replied “i don’t think he does either.” (thanks dad...🙈) who else dragged someone in their family or significant other out into the cold today??

Being fancy and chasing the glamor of entrepreneurship is asinine. there is no glamor in late nights and long flights with little sleep living out of a suitcase in hotel rooms away from home and working 15 hour days. real hustle is about making moves and executing. .
if you became an entrepreneur because of the glitz and glam you see on social media, do yourself a favor and go get a job. because you’re in it for all the wrong reasons. .
sure, you can build massive successful and buy a private jet, nice cars and a nice house. but if that’s your motivation, you’ve already lost. the process of success will cost you dearly. you will lose money💰, sleep😴, relationships, and sacrifice disproportionately to make your dream reality. .
are you willing to endure the doubt and ridicule that will inevitably come your way. are you prepared to grit your teeth and allow life to kick you in the mouth? do you have to fortitude to persevere after you been financially devastated? because that’s what it takes to “make it”. this entrepreneurship stuff ain’t for rainbow🌈 chasers looking for a p*t of gold. check yourself. #realitycheck

He cried & screamed when i put them in bags to take to the p.o.
great weekend with over $1,700 in sales from friday to monday. shipping kicked my b**t but i got it done, with kids. lol.
i love being in competition with myself and shattering my records. my biggest day on ebay has been like $560, so i am determined to hit over $600 this week!
hope everyone has a great rest of the week :)
Listen sweet friends,
it’s taken me a long time to get here, and believe me, i still struggle with this, but did you know you have the power to choose what has control over your happiness?
i used to let comments, circumstances, and the opinions of others weigh on me and rob me of my joy.
but now i’ve realized, i have a choice to not let any of that control me.
i have the choice to be happy and grateful in every circumstance!
am i always? nobody’s perfect 😉 but it’s absolutely changed the way i live my life!
you get to choose what brings you joy and what determines your attitude. if you don’t like that thing or person, change your circumstance and separate yourself from it.
Happy saturday! a restock of jumpsuits are on the way! our stylist @miacaramelli is feeling the weekend vibes in our emily french terry jumpsuit. available in 2 colors in stores, online, and for preorder!
There is likely to be some emotional attachement when wearing a particular piece.if you’ve ever lost a loved one, then you understand how hard it is to let go of any of their possessions, specially jewelry. this necklace was gifted to a client by her late aunt and i had the privilege to fix it for her.
