From Coffee to Cocktails // Remaining Gracious When You Feel Like Giving In

Living with the intention to never compromise my commitment to approaching every situation in life and business with grace is something I’ve realized will never be a perfectly balanced act. There are discouraging times I feel like ruthlessness is the only way to get what I want, but my moral compass never allows me to stoop to certain levels. My Mama always said, “you catch more flies with honey.” Being gracious and ladylike doesn’t mean you’re a push over. It means you succeed despite people’s incorrect assumptions that you cannot maintain your femininity while climbing the ladder to success. I…

There’s Something I’d Like to Say on International Women’s Day

To all the girl bosses out there who leave their 9-5, go home, and hustle their dreams until 2am like nobody’s business. 💪 May we rise and slay, day after day. 👠 With grace we’ll say, “lovely is she who doesn’t stop till she has it all.”💄 It’s funny; growing up I never once heard from anyone that women can or can’t do certain things — I only ever found out some women in this country truly believe they’re oppressed after seeing it screamed in the streets.

Styling a Graphic Tee

Ya’ll have probably realized from all my social media postings that I’m not a ‘casual’ person. I legitimately do not know how to dress something down.

But the ironic thing about my style is that I LOVE tee-shirts and I have dozens of them. I wear them almost every day, but I add baubles, lipstick and heels! Today I’m showing you how I style up something simple like a classic graphic tee. The tee in these photos was…

Sometimes it’s difficult to remember others around us are struggling through life. It’s easy to get caught up in our own problems, schedules and to-do lists. You never know what someone may be going through… perhaps their car didn’t start this morning, or they just received tragic news, or didn’t get that promotion at work they were counting on to pay for something their family needs…  Just be mindful that things in your own life could always be worse. Be thankful for your blessings and remember everyone around you is fighting their own battle.  I always do best remembering things…

FREE art quote printable

Hello dear readers! Today’s freebie is an art print inspired by Jane Austen. The quote is from my favourite of Jane’s novels {Northanger Abbey} and has always resonated with me even as a young girl. It suggests that taking chances and making your own way was something ladies of even Austen’s era thought about. I certainly don’t believe it’s unladylike to chase after grand adventures… and apparently neither did Jane ^_^ I also made this post because I want to demonstrate how amazingly easy it is to create your own art prints if you have a quote that you want…
