SHARING IS CARING

Ever heard of a BHAG? It's an acronym I learned during my time at lululemon: Big Hairy Audacious Goal. And I have a new one! I want to share a few of my favorite things, words of inspiration and what's playing (download Spotify & Soundcloud) in my car and at the gym. You'll also find a new account or community leader (see below) to get hooked on! Some of the shared items will be $$$$ and some will be no-brainer $7 mascara that you won't be able to live without after trying once. If you don't like what you see today, check back next week for the following round up. Shooting for bi-weekly... stay on me about this! Short, sweet, hopefully helpful... because Sharing is Caring.

TO CARRY...

BLUMERA

I was visiting my hometown in South Carolina around my twenty-first birthday when my mom told me that we were going to a trunk show in support of a neighbor I'd grown up with. I have been pining away for Mehera Blum's collection of leather and beautifully fabricated bags since that fine day Spring day in 2009. Finally, for my twenty-ninth birthday, I've ordered myself a leather embossed clutch/organizer, similar to the top left corner photo. CANNOT. WAIT.

Mehera has lived in LA for the past ten years and returns to the East Coast for occasional, special trunk shows. She travels globally year round and has found a way to put her late mother's canvas oil painting onto luxury bags... wearable artwork!  Lucky us! She's got an Atlanta trunk show on May 20th and 21st.

TO LIVE BY...

The more you love your decisions,
The less others’ reactions to
them matter.

TO LISTEN TO...

 

I'm super powered by good tunes!

Here's hoping I can lift your spirits or take your gym jams to the next level. 

*Note: not all songs are appropriate for young audiences!

TO FOLLOW...

I had no idea that my body was acting whack due to the food I was eating until I met my girlfriend and fellow boss-babe, Jessica Elizondo. She has transformed my relationship with and toward food. Jessica has helped countless clients improve their digestion, sleep, stress level, bloating and beyond. Follow her on IG (and book an appointment with her!) to get some foodie-inspiration; see her in-office for nutritional advising.
