First stop London 🇬🇧 ⠀
So the @zuayalondon
with its Latin American cuisine on Kensington High Street is definitely one of my fave restaurants in London. It just opened in summer 2018. So it’s pretty new! 🙌🏼 They have a unique way to combine flavors from Peru, Mexico, Argentina and Brazil in colorful meals with really fresh, high quality ingredients. 🌺 The restaurant is a little more on the luxurious, pricey side but it’s absolutely worth it. 🌟 Also the atmosphere is so cozy with its jungle themed interior and it’s definitely a place for taking some cute Insta pics at the bar. 🍃 Unfortunately I catched a really bad flu when I was in London last time, so no cute pics for me. 😂 That’s why I just went for the vegetable stew with sweet potatoes 🍠, butternut squash and mint (second pic) But I definitely wanna come back next time to try the Ceviche Zuaya with fresh stone bass, cherry 🍒, raspberry, orange 🍊& pink grapefruit. Cause I love the freshness of Ceviche so much! As a main course I would go for the Papardelle with lobster 🦞 and for dessert I definitely recommend trying their homemade icecream creations with avocado, pumpkin, or mango 🥑 🎃 🥭 🍨 So yummy! Also vegetarians have a pretty good choice here.
So when you’re visiting London you definitely need to go & check it out. What is your favorite restaurant in London? I always love to hear some recommendations for my next trip! 💕😘⠀

Hands up if you’re psyched for the weekend AND you accomplished one of your goals this week 🙌🏽
Whether it’s practicing self care, being consistent with your fitness routine, trying something new, or crushing a project at work... give yourself credit & tons of love—you are worth it! 💯
Have the best weekend friends- cheers! 💫✨😊
There are a lot of photos where I am my happiest, which is today’s prompt for our #myweekofselflove
giveaway with @annalynnceleste.
But this picture sticks out SO much. It was probably 15 years ago? As you can tell Ally and I have been colorful weirdos for a longggg time. We were hanging out in her bedroom (as usual) and did a full on photoshoot of us throwing pistachio shells in the air. Why you ask? Yeah I have no clue 😂 Ally is my number one goofball to have fun with 💕
We don't know about you, but this is our idea of the ultimate Friday night. Catch us sipping Pinot Grigio-Chardonnay over a bowl (or two) of popcorn with our BFF. Movie suggestions, ladies? 🥂💗 #TGIF #XOXOwines
I travel to create stories. To share stories. To experience other places and cultures. To enjoy the simple and grand adventures of life. I travel to connect with people!
Why do you travel? Share your stories below!
Find somebody who takes care of you. Not materialistically, but takes care of your mind, your body, and your dreams 💞
Happy Friyay 🎉 Can you believe we are over halfway through January?
As many of you know my main goal for this year is balance. Anybody with me?
It’s been a little rocky but we’re getting there. I have to-do list, post-it notes, set office hours and tons of support from my fellow creatives! One of the things I’ve been so excited to implement is truly enjoying the weekend and taking time for life outside of work. I’d love to hear 👇🏽 How are your new goals coming along?!
Ladies’ day at this cute place in Richmond with my mom & aunt! 😍#joysof2019
Who gave them the right to be so freakin cute?!?! Happy first day of Move It Shake It Mouseke-Dance It!
Your brand puts out so many things these days. It’s your company’s and your look, the promises you make to your audience, and everything you or your staff put out into the world. Every email you send, every picture you post, every comment you make on Facebook, reflects on the brand of YOU.
This is how you know if you're reinforcing your brand every way you can:
BLOG POSTS: For every blog post you write, someone will read it, know it's associated with you, and (hopefully) remember you when this information crosses their mind at some future date.
EMAILS: We all write emails to various people. If you ever write emails to business contacts, current or potential clients and bosses, coworkers, or even a friend of the family who might one day need your services or products, you should be thinking about your brand voice.
SOCIAL MEDIA: Anything you post on any social media account reflects on your company’s reputation, reliability, personality, and persona. As long as you’re making sure that everything you post is related to your company in some way, and isn’t going to offend mass amounts of people, you should be good.
VOICEMAIL MESSAGE: Something people rarely think of is whether their outgoing voicemail message is business/brand appropriate. Make sure people know who they're calling and that you'll promptly return their message when you return.
YOUR WEBSITE: Whether you have a personal blog, a portfolio with writing samples/artwork, or a company webpage, you need to make sure it fits with the brand you’re trying to establish. Go back through all your pages and posts, and make sure that they are all sharing the same message: that you and your company rock!
Here's to making your brand THE BEST ONE YET this year! 💃🏼
Money is such an idol. Especially to me. There is never enough, it seems. As I look at scripture though, it always loosens my grip. I'm reminded that the righteous are never forsaken, nor their children found begging bread (Ps 37:5) and If I seek His kingdom and live righteously, He will give me everything I need (Matthew 6:33).
God's daily provision is better, more reliable and longer lasting than a million dollars.
I got a specific Christmas gift that I didn't know I would love until I tried it. I got a Harry and David gift basket and inside were these awesome things called stroopwaffles. They are waffle disks with soft caramel inside. My whole self absolutely loves them.
Well I say that to say this. God knows you so well, He made you after all and He knows how to delight your heart.
Our anniversay was coming up and we just had enough for food and bills and couldn't celebrate. I prayed and asked Jesus to bless it anyway. The plan was to celebrate on my husband's pay day which was a couple days away.
The very next day, Jesus blessed us! I went out with my Mom and we ended up going to Ross. We were in line waiting to pay for our items. I was lamenting not being able to get Ben anything. My Mom literally reaches behind her and guess what she picks up? Stroopwaffles!
It makes me think of 1 Timothy 6:17 where Paul is admonishing us to put our trust in God who richly gives us all things to enjoy.
We did have fun celebrating, but I'm beaming with the love of God because of those well placed stroopwaffles!
Yes, be wise with your money but don't look to it for security. I have to say this and I know its shocking but it's true. I'd rather have God's stroopwaffles than a well funded retirement account anyday!
God's promises and His personal care to my needs makes my heart sing and gives me true joy and security. Live for God and look for the countless ways He'll PERSONALLY delight your heart. Yours may not be stroopwaffles and mine may not always be that either, but He does know how to take care of His people.
Gems, they're calling for so much snow this weekend in Pittsburgh and I am NOT ready for it! How's the weather where you are and are you a winter person??
] I really just want it to be a tolerable temperature so I can run outside and use my @aftershokz
Trekz Air open-ear headphones! They use bone conduction technology and they are SO COOL. This means you can listen to your favorite music and podcasts while still being aware of your surroundings. I often avoid wearing headphones in public places like airplanes and coffee shops because it gives me anxiety to not know what’s going on around me.
Plus, almost all of the headphones I’ve ever owned have really hurt my ears if I have them on for more than 20 minutes. The open-ear structure of these ones completely prevents that discomfort!
Can you tell I’m just a bit excited to have these in my life?! Read more about them in the "How to Keep New Year’s Resolutions (and Reset Them)" post on hitthegem.com!

prettiest golden hour, prettiest gals ✨
-Dropped the Jeep off to get his oil changed and a new motor for the wipers
-Went to urgent care because I sat up in bed and got a stabbing pain in my abdomen
-Ended up in a room next to a girl barfing 😷
-Turns out I pulled some muscles in my abdomen and have to take it easy for the next few days 😩
I was just getting in a good flow with yoga too! Haven’t missed a day for the last 16 days! I was feeling great all around and even saw some muscle definition.
We were supposed to go to the trampoline place again tomorrow too and now I can’t do that. Yes, I’m pouting. I’m not the best at sitting and doing nothing. The weekends are the time to get out and play! But...I’ll be on the couch with a heating pad 🙄
Here’s the kicker...I’m supposed to start my period any day now too, so I’ll have cramps on top of some pulled muscles. YAY! This should be fun 🙃
Tell me a joke to get me out of this salty mood please 🙏🏼
I have a lot of people ask me are you vegan? Do you eat this or drink that? The answer is: I’m not any one category and I eat everything (sans allergies). I like to eat a lot of plants, but I am not exclusively plant-based.
So let’s talk a bit about diets, because we all know it’s that time of year when everyone is hitting diets hard, but I want to bring up the point that going on a “diet” in the traditional sense, is more likely to fail than be successful.
I was listening to one of my fav podcasts #hastagauthentic
yesterday and the topic was about diet culture. I like a lot of what @laurathomasphd
has to say about mental implications.
I always hear people talking about their “cheat day” or if they eat one thing then they have to run x miles, or “if I loose 10 lbs then I’ll be happy.” When I was in college, I was fixated on losing 5 pounds, which I realize is not a lot, but to my 18yo self, it was practically impossible. I tracked everything I ate, I forced myself to run on the treadmill even though I hated it. It became an obsession. Then one day I got too busy with college classes to focus on the food. I forgot to count calories and instead, just ate when I was hungry. Magically, I lost the 5 lbs and have been the same weight since.
The point to all this: breaking the obsession. When all day you think about what you can and can’t do, you become all-consumed and cannot focus on the bigger picture.
My goal here on IG and on my blog is to help people realize that eating healthy food is enjoyable and sustainable, and that you don’t have to eliminate entire food groups in order to be healthy. That’s why I’m not vegan, vegetarian, paleo, whole 30, anti-carb, anti-red meat, etc. I don’t eat coconut oil by the spoonful or do any juice “cleanses.” And I don’t ever consider myself to be on a “diet”. If I want to have pizza for dinner once in a while, then I will! YOLO
Ultimately, it’s about coming to peace with who you are, what you fuel your body with and how you are going to live your life. But obsessing over the calories, the carbs, the cardio - that just isn’t going to work.
Let me hear your thoughts!
With winter in full swing, there is nothing more beckoning than cozying up by a fireplace all weekend. This one just happens to be ultra fab ✨. Happy Friday! 📷: @homebeautiful

It’s Friday! YAY 😂🤦♀️💁♀️ and I’m excited about all of this snow ⛄️
However, I’ve got this Exercise that can CHANGE your Life for the better!
I'm not even kidding. My clients use this on a regular basis.
They learn from their own 7-8 figure coaches and this *ish is literally working 🤭 for them! ⠀
Yes it's super simple to apply but the only catch is -- ⠀
YOU HAVE TO BE 100% COMMITTED!⠀ YOU HAVE TO GO ALL IN!
It's called Journaling 📒. Simple eh? Yes, this simple exercise has helped me create more opportunities than visualization.
I love learning but when something doesn't click... I get rid of it.
Last year, I had a FAB year. People came out of nowhere wanting to work with me...🙌
My income grew...
I traveled several times to visit my family...
Literally had the best year since 2015! ⠀
In 2015, I was broke, tired, stressed out because I didn't know how to pay bills, I couldn't even save money. I was horrible at saving. I almost wanted to go apply for bankruptcy. I had ended a really toxic 🤮 relationship. I was lost and confused!
Every since I started journaling. Things have changed in such a big way.
And you can have success with it too! ⠀
Just try it NOW. And ask yourself this question freely--
💯What would my highest self BE, DO, HAVE right about now?
Let the answers flow and start to brain dump. ⠀
I guarantee you'll find a lot of valuable information from that alone.
P.S. If you are dry on Ideas and you don't know what to post on your stories... Don't worry, I've got a full 30 days of Insta story Ideas to help you stand out like a BOSS. Grab this goodie today by clicking the link in my bio 👉👉@socialsavvico
Weekend goal: get the stupid curtains back up. I don’t know why I hate this task so much, it will literally take 5 min. But I guess going downstairs and bringing the rod and curtains back up the stairs and then screwing them back into the wall is a huge undertaking in my book 🤦🏼♀️🤣 Happy Friday!!
Show appreciation for yourself today.
How are you loving yourself today?
I’ll go first!
I went to the mirror, looked into my eyes, smiled and said, “Good Morning beautiful! I love you!” As I do. Every. Single. Day.
Oh this word. This word FEAR has been something that I’ve struggled with every single day!
Oh sure, I share here the pretty of being a wedding photographer, speaker, being published, and my life, but all of that hides behind one thing.
Fear of failure. Fear of success. Fear of my mental health. Fear I’m not good enough. Fear that I’ll never make it. Fear no one will book me. Fear I’m not making my family proud. ✨
But we all know that on the other side of FEAR are the best things in life!
This week, with 12 new sisters and @juliepaisley
, I shared my fears. Y’all, they were out there and my insides were on fire exposing them.
But today, sitting here in the dark of my room, ready to start the day, I feel FREE. Sure, fear is still there but I won’t let it guide me. I’ll have it motivate me. ✨
Today, there is FEAR in at least one of you who follow me. I urge you to be true to yourself. Write down what you are afraid of. Embrace the fear. Then CRUSH IT!
We are in this together!
