Happy happy Tuesday everyone😊 today somehow feels like monday and Friday at the same time….BUT had a v productive day today, filmed a room tour, wrote blogs on my top ten fav books for 2019, how I really feel about celery juice, and how I got my hair healthy again!! Which one do you all want to see first?/What other blogs and vids do y’all want to see coming up!! *bonus points to whoever can guess what rooftop this was taken on??
The look of frustration. If you're following along on the blog, you know I have started a 30 day challenge. Well, status update: I have been working out and eating really well. However, I haven't really lost anything. I am guessing it is because I have more muscle.
I know this isn't wishful thinking because I look more "solid", and I feel less flabby. One an even more positive note, my clothes fit the way the are supposed to. So, I should focus more on that than the number on the scale...right? Ugh, if only I could mentally make myself do that.
So, as I was writing my last blog post “focus” ( 👈🏽link the bio guys!) I was thinking of other ways to remind myself of my goals this year! 👀 -
Being a visual person, and inspired by my friend @shaylynndenisee I decided to make a vision board! -
This includes quotes to get me through the hard days, career tips, placed i want to travel to and more! -
Feel free to check mine out - or share ideas from your own! 💡💙
Travel Tuesday! And a special one because my husband just bought our tickets BACK TO SAMOA today!!! 🌴🌺🍍
We'll be going in August and staying for a couple of weeks....my heart could just burst I'm so excited! One photo can't adequately express all the love, adventure, and beauty that emanates from this island, but a scenic one (with my sweeties in it 😏) at a favorite beach, Fatumafuti, will suffice for now.
We are thrilled to return, seeing old friends (and surely meeting new ones) while creating memories with our new additions (the twins 😀👶👶). I'm just a bit sad because I know 2 weeks there won't feel near long enough... #americansamoa#tutuila#samoa#traveltuesday#islandaiga#balancingtravel#balancinghope ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

• Marine ⚓️🙌🏻⚡️ || Este look literal salió de @pinterestmexico 👌🏻 📌 de verdad lo mejor para inspirarse al momento de buscar que ponerte .
Es un look en capas 👍🏻 todavía estamos en días fríos y vivo en una ciudad con clima súper cambiante 😅
Por lo regular tiendo a llevar de 3 a 4 🧮 capas de ropa 👔👖👟 para poder ir cambiando de acuerdo al momento del día, vestir en capas me sirve por la forma de cuerpo y tipo; soy delgado y ayuda a darme volumen 🙏🏻 .
Creo que esto sin duda sería mejor explicarles en video 🎥 ¿Qué les parece la idea de armar algunos looks en video? 👍🏻👎🏻 díganme en los comentarios #inspireothers

Hi, Lauren here! In case you’re new, there are two of us behind the scenes, Lauren & Erin! We switch off on managing social media, so sometimes you hear me reference my “two boys” and other times Erin mentions “5 kids” 🤗, and you’ll see both our faces pop in stories now and then! 🙋🏼♀️🙋🏼♀️ We hope you can keep up and enjoy this online platform we’re working to create as much as we do!
she is beauty. •

she is grace. •
flower crown instructions:
1. shape the wire to your desired size and wrap the ends with floral tape
2. tape your designated greenery to around the base of the frame
3. create mini flower bunches to prepare to put on the crown and wrap the floral tape around to hold together
4. attach the flower bunches to the base of the crown
5. keep refrigerated until used
Early mornings to my internship can be exhausting, but remembering why I walk out my door for the best job is so worth it✨❤️

woke up feeling refreshed and happy, i can’t believe im actually 25. I can already feel this year starting off better than last. here’s to more life, here’s to another rotation around the sun! 🎈| #CapriornSeason • #Birthday
K I know I don’t typically show the “details” of my “fits” but I can’t “help” myself considering how phenomenal these “finds” were. Honestly idk about all the “ “...they just felt right ya feel. That said, for real- find the nearest @crossroadstrading and find yourself your own vintage on-trend items for basically .99.
Are you exercising your right to rest?
It’s one of those days when I need to follow my own advice. The advice I so much hand out:
Doing nothing, is doing something. It’s healing and recovery.
You and I live full, busy lives. We all need to build in periods of retreat, because if we don’t, they will never happen. Sometimes rest is exactly what the doctor ordered. Relaxation is precisely what the body and soul need.
Today will be a day of simplicity, and reverence.
I’m slowing down to fill my cup today. I encourage you to exercise your right to slow down the next time you feel the need.
The first 5 days after the weekend are the hardest 🤷🏽♀️ who’s with me?
Cheers to girls nights and inspiring people 💕

The stying options when you have long thick hair are endless. I can’t wait to get my hair touched up tomorrow, and continue to have the hair of my dreams!

Hello again, my dear friends 💜
While my absence was very discreet, with my return I genuinely want to dedicate this post to you, and “you” know who you are — whether it was a DM, email, text, or comment on one of my old posts, it’s those of you that made sure to check up that kept me hanging on throughout the worst phase of my life. I have to say that I’ve rehearsed so many times in my head, on paper, and out loud how I would explain to you all what’s happened in the past 4 months, but the hard truth is: I’m not ready to. I’m not ready to open a wound that is still very fresh, and that is still healing — so instead, I’m going to take it day by day, post by post. ✍🏼
My departure from @sincerelynursing has been very nurturing to my personal growth to say the least. My interior has evolved in ways that are beyond me to explain — I’m stronger, I’m wiser, I’m better, and I’m just blossoming transparently yet privately at the same time. I want you all to know a piece of me through this platform, but I’m not in a state to give out all of me the way I did with @sincerelynursing. Don’t get me wrong, she was great and all, but she put others before she put herself, she failed along the way at the expense of others satisfaction, and she wasn’t entirely sure of who she wanted to be. She knew that she could be more, but she never allowed herself to take that leap.. 🕊
Now, @sincerelymindful is a real kick. She wants you to be mindful of wherever you are in life. She wants you to know that you can rise up and recreate yourself from ANYTHING, that nothing is permanent, that you have choices, and that once you get a hold of those things, to never look back at who you once were, but to appreciate that person from a distance — for they contributed to who you are now. You are always going to be evolving, you are always going to reform yourself with each lesson, each pain, and each life event you go through.. But never forget to self care or be present within those moments along the way. 🌻
Coming into 2019 will full force, and better hair. 💇🏽♀️

Currently participating in the Daniel Fast ... there for @juicebarallentx has become one of my new favorite places🥤. Comment below and let me know how you survived the Daniel Fast 😂 and some Daniel Fast Friendly Restaurants... Oh and please pray for me 🙏🏾 !
By Twenty; a place where everyone has a seat. You can be honest, be heard, be seen and be loved. You, are welcome here. .
Our twenties are chaotically beautiful and life changing and often times we may feel alone in the adventure.
As people share their triumphs and losses, grief and joy, and ultimately, their hearts, we hope that you connect, relate and are inspired by their courage. We hope that you also remember, how courageous YOU are! Follow along, this is our place, this is our story. You belong here.

Having the same shoe size as your sister is great ☺️ I wanna get some red ones!! Who loves @drmartensofficial ??
[anzeige/advertisement!] Love the transformer - scarves that can be worn in different ways! Read more in my new Article on the Combicity Journal dedicated to Ways of wearing a Scarf!
I want to share with you something that has totally shifted my mindset this week..
I can promise you that if you take a second to think about this concept, you will have more Ah-ha moments than you even know what to do with!- Serious!
OK, Imagine this:
God, or the universe, or spirit, or a magic genie, or fortune teller or (insert whatever resonates best with you here) came to you and told you that everything you have ever wanted is going to happen to you this year!
You don't have to do anything special, just be patient and it is all guaranteed to happen. EVERYTHING. ALL OF IT.
How would you feel?
How would you show up every day just knowing and fully trusting that everything you want for your life is coming very soon?
🙋♀I know how I would be!
💫I would start being more kind to myself.
💫I would stop pushing so hard.
💫I would let go of shit that I know doesn't serve me.
💫I would let go of resentment.
💫I would take more risks.
💫I would spend money more freely without guilt, fear and shame.
💫I would let go of fear and do all of the things that I have wanted to do, but have been too scared to.
💫I would allow myself to FEEL FREE.
💫I would stop rushing.
💫I would be more spontaneous.
💫I would be more patient.
💫I would be more enthusiastic and excited about every day!
❓Why the hell are we not living this way NOW❓
IMAGINE if we did?
I bet that is THE KEY to making it all happen! - Who else is with me on this?
💥ASK FOR YOU: How would you show up if you KNEW everything you ever wanted was about to happen?💥
Who wants to try this with me??

Getting serious about those 2019 fitness goals as a @GoldsGym brand ambassador! I'm in love with their equipment selection, workout classes and convenient locations! I was able to sign up for one five minutes from my house, so it's perfect for fitting a healthy lifestyle into my busy schedule. Has anyone else worked out at Gold's Gym before?! #GoldsGym#sponsored#GoldsAmbassador#WhyILoveGolds
This year, We GLOW💫 .
I started a skincare routine in November. I lack consistency when it comes to routines but the way my face is set up, I had to and my face has been acne free; Few dark spots but zero acne, so we are good😁 .
How I care for my skin .
•I wash my face regularly .
•I use a separate towel for my body and I avoid touching my face .
•Never go to bed without washing my face thoroughly (especially with makeup) and I don’t go out without applying sunscreen, Lagos sun is not playing with anyone .
•Sulfur Acne soap for my face only.
Apply honey afterwards, leave it for a while and rinse off .
•Black soap, Shea butter, St. Ives body lotion, Coconut oil for my body .
P.S: These @aramiessentials products are absolutely worth the hype 👍🏾 .
What measures do you take to maintain a good skin? Can you recommend tips for removing dark spots?
