It is so hard to document the important memories and be present in the moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This year I have decided to take LESS pictures. It is really hard for me to do this, but who needs pictures of every second? I don't want my kids to remember me which a camera/phone in front of my face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, I am not going to say this as someone that has it all figured out but as someone who is trying and is seeing a HUGE difference. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I didn't take pictures of my kids opening presents because those are not the memories I care about. This picture of Annabelle looking out at the ocean during her birthday vacation is a moment I want to remember. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What moments do you find the most important?
Women who invest in themselves go further. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Are you making yourself a priority? Or are you pouring out everything that you have to serve your family, friends, and community? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trust me friend, the saying is correct, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Make the time to invest in yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Grow intellectually, embrace a hobby, read a book at nigh instead of scrolling the gram, place beautiful flowers around your home (real or fake), reduce clutter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is your favorite way to invest in yourself?
When you are going through your closet to try to get rid of more things and realize you DEFINITELY have a preference for chambray dresses with stripes 🤷🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What is your closet full of? Do you have something you buy in every style? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And and just in case you are not aware, Target has BOGO 50% off dresses (I believe rompers are included)
Girlfriend, I see you trying to do all of the things and feeling like you are failing miserably. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You have these big dreams and are still figuring out how you are going to make them happen. It seems so much of that success is determined right here on this app. You think if you just scroll a little more, like a couple more photos that maybe it will all start to work in your favor? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You look at all of these beautiful pictures and assume other women are working harder, they are just better, or clearly they have more time than you do. After all you were kept up half the night by a crying baby and you have little ones destroying your house during the day. How are you suposed to build an empire too? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Girl, I get you. I am living that same life. It is so hard not to compare ourselves to strangers on the internet. You hustle your own way, and you own it! If you have an hour during nap time, then you rock that hour and don't think less of yourself. #naptimehustle #momhustle Photo credit: @writtenbybrittany
Do you struggle with too many pictures? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know, how could that possibly be a bad thing? We as a generation take more picture than ever before, yet print the least amount of them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I remember looking through old pictures with my mom. I loved learning about her live when she was younger and seek g what my grandma looked like before she got old. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Recently, I realized I’m a picture hoarder. I’m on a mission to take less in quantity but more quality. I make #projectlife pages but have been behind out of being overwhelmed by the massive amount of pictures on my phone and camera. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m vowing to create a page, delete pictures that are not my absolute favorite and only back up the best. Then I’m doing another delete. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My phone is way too full and I’m realizing clutter, even digital clutter, effects me a lore more than I ever. Double tap if you are a picture hoarder too.
Hey There! I am Nikkie, I have been on a self love journey and kind of failing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know that part of self love is taking care of my body and eating right and I am pretty good at that (thought I still love tacos and ice cream). The problem I have is actually loving the way I look. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I find myself in that in between size. I am not plus size or overweight by any definition but I am not in the best shape of my life either. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, I feel like a lot of this self love movement doesn't apply to me. Do you ever feel like that? Kind of in between? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I show up in my feed a lot, but each of those photos is taken by me and chosen carefully. Here I am showing up, allowing someone else to take my picture is HARD, not editing that little tummy of mine is HARD. I look at this picture and start to pick it apart (my hair, my smile, my eyes, my tummy, my thighs, my arms). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ WOW, I am really hard on myself, I am sure you know exactly what I am talking about. I am confident that if I show up more often and step out of my comfort zone that I will slowly start to love the picture that I am posting. Actually this picture is proof of that. I almost deleted it, but I am slowly starting to see the beauty instead of the flaws. Swimsuit: Massimo from Target Coverup: #KnoxRose from Target
Just in case y'all don't know I am 100% a fake redhead. Though I am pretty sure there was a mixup somewhere because clearly, I was suposed to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Luckily I have some prior knowledge of hair color and have been dying my own hair. In an effort to simplify my life and make it easier I tried out @esalon and am so happy with the result! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They made it easy every step of the way and I ended up with a beautiful color. Let’s be honest, I will support anything that doesn’t require me to leave my house. Double tap if you arean ambivert like me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Head on over to my blog for a full review (link in profile) and for a referral link for $10 off.
