Detoxing from a busy weekend
That awkward moment when you borrow your housemate's unattended laptop to check the weather forecast and discover a half-finished email to his girlfriend with this - THIS! - as an attachment! Thanks a bunch, Stephen! 🐛😲🙈
C L I E N T S H O U T O U T // Emme went all out with the Hannah theme for her site @theparentpal
in which she hopes to "bridge the gap between home and school by coaching and empowering parents to be more active in their child’s educational career. Parent involvement has a significant impact on student success and I can make that involvement easier on everyone."
Since launching, Emme has written a book, working on a new one, published countless blogs and even started a shop where you can buy books, workbooks and merchandise curated by Emme herself. .
The hard stuff? (meaning the shop, the pop-ups, the extra opt-ins) She did it herself after launching - proud much?
Dancing into another year of life! 💃🏻
These past 365 days were filled with sweet memories shared with family & friends, huge life changes & adventures around the world. I'm not going to lie, there were a lot of bumps in the road, but I've learned so much and I'm better at choosing joy despite my circumstances. 😊 I'm hoping the next year will teach me how to live fearlessly & love generously. 💗 Excited to see what God has in store for the next 365 days! 🎉 #birthdaygirl
I’m burnt and broke & I think there’s a spider in my bed that keeps biting me but I’m at the beach so 💚🏝
🍁 As the seasons change, nothing cozies up a space like a vintage rug 🍁#southshorerugs
"and it might take years but the best thing about patience is, you always get what you need. you always get what you asked for and in the end, you always get what you deserve." ~rm drake
So looking around Instagram and even in life and all of us are looking for that special something. For some it's a relationship and for others, it's a career. But truth be told, life doesn't always go the way you planned or expected it to go. There are twists and turns, and what you think you had wanted is not the same as what you get. But you never know how great your life may be unless you keep at it everyday.
So here's just a little reminder that I could have used years back. Just keep going regardless of how difficult it may be right now, as you never know... the best things haven't happened yet.
Ohh, and by the way, what do you think of my new hair style by @beautybyheatherleigh
? Anyone else changing it up with something new this fall?
#smilemore #afitandfabulousmichele #katespadeny #endbullying #motivationalwords
.. so let’s stop all of this negativity in this world and just eat tacos 🌮
all the styled shoot feelings 🍂 .
behind the scenes of the shoot next week here on my stories 👌🏻
// some of the pretty, pastel streets of Provence 🌸
Are you doing what you love & are absolutely obsessed with? 🌸
Or are you doing what seems logical and safe and what everyone ‘thinks’ you should be doing?
If you’re ever going to step into true abundance and contentment you owe it to yourself to tune back into your daydreams
What gets you super, super excited and completely lit up? 💕
Now......go do that 💃🏼🥂✈️
“Let your 📷 be your art, and its images your history. Let your lens carry you through new worlds – and allow your photos to live on as a new world for others. Study every square inch of a photograph and celebrate its tones and angles. But study, too, your place in the experiences that shape you. Save room for life to make art for you and you alone.” 🎨

The weather is changing and that means it's time to put away all the tank tops and shorts. AD I may be a weirdo but I absolutely have to launder everything before storing it away for the season. So I'm over here washing load after load and boxing it all away. I'm also internally crying because I'm going to miss the sun.
I'm a total fan of this great smelling Honey Lavender Tide purclean detergent but if you're not into froo-froo scents, it comes in Unscented as well. I can use the detergent for my whole family since it's free of free of dyes, chlorine, phosphates, ethanolamine and optical brighteners. Tide purclean is 70% plant-based and is certified by the USDA BioPreferred program. If you didn't know, plant-based products contain ingredients from plant, marine, forestry and other agricultural sources, and provide a renewable alternative to petroleum-based ingredients. Count me in!
I love that Tide purclean is plant-based and still has the cleaning power of Tide, and it smells great too. Go to your local Fred Meyer in Seattle to purchase Tide purclean to try it for yourself, and be on the lookout for special demonstration carts highlighting Tide purclean this month!

Of all the beautiful visuals on display at the retreat, the floral arrangements by @willowflorals
were the most inspiring for me.⠀
I tried out a little something new as a bonus for one of the lovely people who bought a souvenir painting. I think the combination of being surrounded by flowers and spending so much time in the company of @cbrookering
rubbed off on me a little. 🌺
Che poi è così bello il disordine. Sembra senza senso.
Ma è da indossare come un vestito.
Qualche capello fuori posto.
Che ne so qualche sbadiglio all'improvviso, sul viso di qualcuno.
Qualche passo falso. Indifeso. L'abbandonarsi al sogno. Nudo.
O anche un discorso insensato. Un gesto. È così bello sbagliare strada e poi ritrovarla. Scovarne un'altra.
Essere sempre curiosa, domanda dopo domanda.
Meraviglioso essere fuori dalla riga. Allontanarsi dalla linea del superficiale, quella che separa il banale dal particolare.
Un nuovo dettaglio. Appena scoperto. L'ho imparato. L'ho afferrato.
PS :niente, amo il guardaroba maschile...
Can't wait to have these candle beauties back in stock - es dauert immer etwas länger, wenn wir handgemachte Unikate nachbestellen - aber kleine Details, individiuelle Anfertigungen heisst eben auch, dass es keine Massenware ist, die wir einfach mit einem Fingerschnipser abrufen können - es gibt nicht 100 Maschinen, oder Teams, die diese Arbeit übernehmen, sondern meistens eine einzige Frau, die diese Kunststücke eins nach dem anderen fertigt - wir wollen gar nichts anderes, wir finden solche speziellen Anfertigungen, sind etwas Warten wert und diese Tierchen machen nicht nur einmal im Leben Freude, sondern immer wieder. In den nächsten Wochen brüllen sie wieder die Löwen, trampeln die Elefanten oder stolzieren die Flamingos wieder über Geburtstagstorten! Wir freuem uns!
These candle animal cuties are soon back in stock - it actually takes quiet some time if we want to restock these precious pieces for our shop - but: sourcing individual, handmade pieces is not like ordering from a big manufacturer with a huge stock where you get a lot in no time - it's often a single woman producing these by hand one after the other. It's love in action and it takes time and it's also limiting what's available at a certain point in time. We actually love these special products a lot - they are not made for one time fun, they stay and make you smile more than once in life. And we are happy these lions roar soon on your cake again!

•Stop Judging Others•
Judgment comes from a place of fear or hate. 😡
Children and animals love us for who we are. It’s only as we grow insecurities that the judgement on others begin to take form, for the judgment we place on others is likely the judgment we place on ourselves 😕
Although judging others might make us feel safe in our own choices, bringing others down won’t elevate us and keeps us from building a stronger tribe or even a tribe at all.
Moral of this post....
Stop seeking out differences in others, but instead commonalities and 💕Love thy neighbor 💕
Our new local feature is here! @paperheartcalligraphy
fans rejoice! We have her adorable cards and pins in our Langely retail store. Come stop by and check out all the cuteness!
If you saw my stories last week you already saw this fabric banner! Most of you were into them and that makes me super happy because they are SO fun to make. It’s weird not doing calligraphy but I’m also a “letterer” which i have to remember...that its ok to go outside my comfort zone and try out something new. There’s a few of these babes available in my shop now, with new sayings and styles to be released soon!
These are the kinds of results my clients are getting. NO JOKE! Your ideal clients can’t wait to work with you and are willing to pay your prices! Show up and do the WORK, the results will roll on in.
Are you my NEXT testimonial?
Excuse me, I’ll just be over here dropping all responsibilities, curling up with Ninny, and diving into this book! I can’t believe I’ll be meeting @reesewitherspoon

stands out in Hamburg’s alternative district Sternschanze by its clean design. The black and white interior is trimmed by sleek and clear-cut edges. The owner Linus explains the idea behind the cafes interior: it’s all about transparency. Nothing is hidden and everyone who walks in can see what’s happening.
This obsession with pink tho....🤦🏽♀️. But hello, honey-bunches! My new website is coming along nicely after some meditation and patience. And prayer. And crying. And stopping to eat guac. Woooooo-sah! What are you guys currently working on?
My entire heart ❤️! The best medicine for the soul is the sound of a toddler’s laugh!!!! And everyday day, at 3 or 4 pm, I close the laptop and start my “Happy Hour”.... one on one time with my little guy after he wakes up from his nap! He’s in the best mood and so fun 😍! Today is music class but we also love the park!! What is your favorite activity during quality time with your kiddos?
My birthday is 2 days away 😋

PINTEREST + TAILWIND: A Marketing Goldmine
We’ve all done it. Fallen into the Pinterest Rabbit Hole, pinning away at DIY, recipes, design inspiration. We may have also said, “Yeah, I need to get on my Pinterest marketing,” and yet it is the very last thing on our to do list.
If anything I’ve learned since start Be Bold Design Studio, it’s that the power of FREE marketing and utilizing everything you can before you spend a dime is so imperative, that it almost dumbfounds me that anyone does not see the absolute crazy potential Pinterest has to explode their business.
✨What Is Pinterest and Why Should You Use It?✨
Pinterest is a free image search engine, with the bonus of also appearing in regular search engines – it is as powerful as Youtube and Wikipedia in search engine rankability. One of the biggest differentiators is that Pinterest is all about driving website traffic vs. just posting an image. In most cases, people on Pinterest have a research mindset, and they fully expect when they click on an image containing a product to be brought to a product page.
Oh, did I also mention that it is a highly social asset with a long-term lifespan? Unlike an Instagram or Facebook Post or email blast, which will be pushed down in the timeline and be seen by nobody after a few days, a pin does not disappear into cyberspace; it will live on for many months after its original creation. A pin remains on top of the pages. To this day, I am still getting traffic and platform engagement on pins I created months ago and have not touched since I created them.
However, when I began my Pinterest marketing efforts, I found that I did not have time to pin every day. So, I looked into a marketing software similar to Hootsuite or Planoly to help.
Check out the rest of this blog post in the link in my bio for the reasons why I love using Tailwind!
