why we do what we do

have you ever thought about what motivates your soul? why do we get up in the morning? what keeps us up at night?

sleep is something i can never seem to snag enough of. but such is so much about life. time with friends, time to dream, (sleeping or awake), time to explore the unknown. God gives us so many moments and we can decide how to use them. *scrolls facebook sheepishly* so many tutorials, so little time! lolz! <tangent-my recent fave was Lucie Fink’s interview with Anna Akana, if you are in need of some creative vlogging inspo>

here is one thing I am working on currently. how to continue stepping into moments while trusting God at the same time. here is what i mean by that. i used to separate good/bad events from sharing my feelings with God. well, it was easier during the ‘good’ feelings to stay connected. such as positivity, happiness, thankfulness, joy, delight. but i would create so much distance between me and God whenΒ  I felt negative or ‘wrong’ feelings, such as disconnect, melancholy, anger, stuck, depression. and then some feelings i get stuck altogether in limbo, anxiety, frustration, it’s something i even do with people, I have learned. the question i have been asking myself is, am i willing to feel what I’m feeling w h i l e staying connected to the holy spirit at the same time, and at the same time, God. what happens when i connect instead of distance those two?Β  and dipping my boot into that is delightful and splashy like an ocean’s first kiss. salty, refreshing, restoring and real. it makes you wonder why you would stay dry on the sand in the first place.

i also worry no one will understand me. we are created to know and be known. of course Satan would want to create that divide and fake fear. when I express that, God has given me lots of confirmation through people that i am understandable. or people ask great clarifying questions and are patience to talk through something with me. the willingness to learn is as important as automatically being understood, different hues delight the soul.

has this every happened to you? i’d love to hear about it. until next time, thanks for stopping by, fashionistas!

The basis of everything

When I stepped into the fashion world, I subscribed to thinking beauty was an idea that I had to look a certain way, weigh a certain number, and acceptance was woven into that thinking. Being loved was accepted on the outside, preferably with a boyfriend in tow. Continue reading

Fashion Distractions

It’s hard not to be distra-er excuse me. My phone buzzed.

As I was saying, so many selfies, so little time! Ahem. Where were we?

Something about staying focused-so much for wearing Warby Parker’s today! (kidding!) Back to business. Whether it is our expectations for ourselves and others, technological advances or a combination of completely unrelated reasons, the equation for distractions feels endless. Continue reading

How ‘Yes, And’ Helped Me be Real

image1 (2)

A few months ago I took an improv class as a team building with coworkers. After overcoming the initial fear of potential embarrassment, the process of ‘clearing out the attic’ of your imagination became such a blast and illuminated a new outlook on life, my creative soul soaked right up.

Fast forward a few months and I find myself wrestling with a question that had become lodged in my attic, packaged up nicely but left to collect cobwebs. Continue reading
