Craft Your Story Into a Creation Starter Kit

We all hear and read about the buzz words ‘Your Story’ on blogs, business pages, books, and motivational speeches. It’s easy to live out your story, it’s called life, and we do it every day by breathing, moving, and communicating. Let’s get real, though, it’s a lot harder to verbalize, discuss, and show what moments have molded you, and what got you to where you are today. That is why this trend report was invented so that you could craft and write your story into a creation. It’s just the starter kit so you need to keep adding to it. Because at the end of the day, ‘Your Story’ is important to develop. 1. Anthropologie’s Year-Less Planner – $28.00 Create your own plan for your life with this year less planner from Anthro.

Just like the Rio Olympics, Go for Gold

Believe it or not, our olympian friends in Rio are just like us with huge obstacles to overcome and self-motivation that could move mountains. They work long hours like you do. They cry, want to give up, and feel burnt out sometimes. They even deal with tough competitors that have no mercy or empathy to whether you succeed or fail. It is truly an inspiration to watch the athletes compete and earn the medals they bring home to their countries, families, friends and most importantly themselves. But my gosh, the stories behind the dreamers and do-ers are what really make you want to go for gold in your everyday life. Even though none of us (just making an assumption here, but if we have any past, present, or attempting olympians among our readership, please do step forward – we’d love to interview ya!) are in the market for gold, silver or

Flamingo Things: I Don’t Give a Flock

This summer our motto goes something a long the lines of, “I don’t give a flock.” Meaning, I am not going to let anything or anyone get in my way. You keep going even when life gets tough. Although you appreciate and listen to advice from others, you always stick to your intuition. This is the go-to motto for this summer, and one of the reasons why our flamingo friends are trending. Most likely the hype is because of all the fun puns you can make out of the flamingo things trend. Flamingle with the trend below: 1.

Accessories to Tranquilify Your Home

Purple is the color of red and blue combined. Think about this. Red is warming and blue is cooling so basically purple is the ultimate balance, and this is also why it has so much symbolism behind it. Purple is a force to be reckoned with, like the purple hearts soldiers receive for bravery. Yet at the other end of the spectrum it is calming, like flowers in an open field. No matter what way you see the color purple, there is no denying the effect of its calmness. Now your home can be balanced and can help you feel relaxed after a long day of work or fun so that you can decorate your home to facilitate your success! 1. Ursula Table Lamp from Currey & Company – $590.00 The lamp has a glass body infused with deep plum, creating a gorgeous lavender.
