The last thing that I ate when leaving Paris were macarons from @maisonladuree ๐Ÿ’• Rose, lavender, salted caramel, vanilla... pastels + flavors collided in a frivolous way... and, in a quick moment, I realized that "frivolous" had become necessary to me... thereby negating its definition. It's the "frivolous" things in this life that make it worthwhile. Scents, sounds, tastes, and places that exist solely to provide an infusion of beauty make this life more than a story... it's the frivolous that turns a tale into a fairy tale. Thank you, Paris, for permanently working your way into a fundamentally frivolous piece of my heart... and it just might be my very favorite piece. ๐Ÿ’•

Currently on a plane about to take off and leave Paris. My heart is experiencing so many emotions. It is common for me to experience homesickness when I travel... but this is the first time I am experiencing homesickness upon my return. I made new friends in Paris that I believe will be a part of my life forever. I walked and danced and skipped and sang and each and every Parisian street made me feel joyful. The music. The food. The art. The architecture. The fashion. I loved it all. Thank you, Paris... and the people of Paris... for making my dreams come true โค๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ทโค๏ธ

Every morning that I have awoken in Paris has been a dream come true. I already have a morning routine: I make myself a cup of espresso, open the windows wide, and step out onto the balcony of the flat to breathe, gaze at the Eiffel Tower, and say, "Thank you." This memory is a part of me now. I will carry it home with me as a permanent piece of my heart. I am soaking up each and every moment during my last day in the City of Lights. Until next time โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ทโค๏ธ

When I created @the.gild a year ago, I had some pretty wild dreams about taking the movement to the international stage. ๐ŸŒŽ
I assumed the actualization of that vision would take about five to ten years. I had strategic meticulous action plans on how to make it happen. ๐Ÿ“

The universe had other plans. Faster plans. Grander plans. Plans full of serendipitous magic. ๐Ÿ’ซ

Today, my sister and I get on an airplane. โœˆ๏ธ That airplane takes us to Paris. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท We will be staying in a flat with a clear view of the Eiffel Tower. (*pinch me. I really do feel like I'm dreaming*) ๐Ÿ—ผ

I will be speaking to a theater (and, oh, what a theater... full of history + grandeur + opulence) full of entrepreneurs. ๐ŸŽญ

I will teach them how to utilize their social media to create a personal brand. I will show them how this personal brand is the key to unlocking freedom. No boss. No clock. No desk. No rules. Complete ownership of their life. ๐Ÿ—

I am passionate about teaching others to unlock the psychological constraints that society dictates. I am committed to giving people a choice... another way of looking at things... another option. โค

This decision has taken me to Mexico, Hawaii (twice!), Catalina, Utah, Montana, Napa, San Francisco, and Panama in the past year. Now I'm going to Paris... and, in a few months, to Iceland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ธ So many voices said that I was "crazy" when I made this decision a year ago. If this is what "crazy" looks like, I'm all in. ๐Ÿฅ‚

So much love to all you other "crazy" people out there... especially to the women of The Gild. None of this would be possible without all of you. Thank you for helping make my dreams come true... and (as you all know) I'm fully committed to helping you do the same. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฆ„๐Ÿ’• #digitalnomad #thefairytaleisreal #youCANsitwithus

When we brunch, we brunch hard. Creating this space with @sweetsoutherncalifornia + @eventblissca was so much fun. We wanted everything to be perfect for @the.gild Goal Setting Event taught by the oh-so-radical @wellnessvixen โคWe blasted early morning jams through the sound system + sleepily smiled at one another throughout the setup. We used our smiles to communicate as we each worked on putting together different elements of the event. At the end, with only the smile communication to guide us, we each looked at what the other two women had created. And it was perfect. We worked together seamlessly, silently, and smilingly. And the end was magic. It's incredible what can be done without words when all of the hearts involved have the same purpose. Love these women. Love this tribe. And loved this brunch. Let's do it again ๐Ÿ

I woke up at 6am on Sunday morning to get everything ready. While sitting at my vanity + primping for the day, my face contained an ear to ear grin. I knew it was going to be a very special day. Our insanely talented friend came over bright + early to lend her magical event expertise... thanks to @eventblissca every last detail was utter perfection. The women of @the.gild began to arrive in all of their radiant splendor. The thing about these earth angels is that they all possess obvious beauty... but their light is so blinding that it's the glow that is the first thing people notice. As more + more of these goddesses arrived, the event really began to sparkle. And the day was perfect. Growth + harmonious conversation. Actionable Gilded goal setting with the powerful + vivacious @wellnessvixen (this tigress rocked our world with her expertise) ๐Ÿฏ sprinkle covered donuts + champagne ๐Ÿฅ‚ flamingo + pineapple themed everything ๐Ÿ these old souls gathered with intention + laughed + played like children. a collective energy that resulted in a tangible golden nirvana that vibrated in the space and stuck to our clothes and our skin and our spirits. What a charmed day. We always have room for more. #youCANsitwithus

Like most veteran bloggers, I love a good swag bag... and this one earned its rank as one of much all time favorites. As if having the best weekend ever at the @happinessretreatsb hosted at Kimpton's boho mod chic Santa Barbara hotel @thegoodlandsb wasn't enough, this bag was a massive dollop of buttercream frosting on an already perfect cake. The event was hosted by @wellnessvixen + @saltyhairmamma (these women knocked my socks off!) and the gorgeous event decor was provided by @eventblissca ... and these badass babes made sure our bags were chalk full of all the best in all things health + wellness + happiness + zen. Take me back to this rad weekend of yoga pants, manifestation, solid intention setting, gypsy dinner gatherings, and late night sparkling rose bed jumping dance parties with this group of wonderful wildlings.

I've had "one of those months"... acknowledging that is pretty monumental for me. I rarely speak about, or even notice, the negative elements of life because I have a disposition that tends to err radically on the sunny side... and by "radically on the sunny side" I actually mean that I mentally reside in a world full of glitter, unicorns, rainbows, and things made of magic + sugar. Due to circumstances beyond my control, those rainbows weren't as bright this month + it was hard to find the mountains of glitter... they were still there... they were just coated in a thick fog that must have been sent by some sorcerer in another kingdom to dull the sparkle too bright for those dark of heart. As the month began to near its fog drenched end, I went to visit some white light ladies at an event that radiated with joy, inclusion, and the sunshine was so bright that the fog began to evaporate... it couldn't survive the warmth. It turns out that a wicked spell can't exist in the face of overwhelming love. Here's a shot that was taken the moment the fog cleared... surrounded by goddesses of @the.gild + appropriately toasted with a glass of champagne ๐Ÿฅ‚ here's to the foggy times in life reminding us that the sunshine is even brighter when it lifts. Here's to true lady love. And here's to The Magic that is found in the light. @sweetsoutherncalifornia @the_salty_piglet @intuitive_gypsy_babe @hunnyandtea

Happy Memorial Day โค and the most emphatic THANK YOU that I can muster for all that have served to protect this great country. To those that have fallen in service, my heart swells with gratitude for you + my eyes fill with tears for your families. Those brave enough to sacrifice for the freedom of others certainly have a special place in heaven. So grateful for the courage of those who have selflessly served. #proudtobeanamerican

I had one of those "pinch-me-because-everything-is-perfect-and-life-feels-like-a-dream" moments this week. With this guy, I seem to have a lot of those moments. All I said was, "Today I feel like doing something." Just like that... we were off. I threw my hair back and put on a maxi sundress + my knight-in-palm-print wove a fairytale of a day just for me. He swept me to the top of the Santa Barbara Riviera for a glass of champagne at El Encanto. We had the kind of conversation that felt like a piano crescendo... quick, note on top of note, endlessly building into new streams of connection, understanding, + harmony. We rose from the table and filled up our flutes to explore the property and walk the paths that so many silver screen stars have traversed since the fifties. And, just like that, I fell a little more in love. The rest of the day was a beautiful blur. Reggae music in a park in the sunshine. A temple-side hilltop sunset. Bold red wine to wash down a warm spinach salad and so much laughter at Lucky's in Montecito. That night, I saw stars... and it wasn't the bubbly + the wine... it was the man. Thank you, @coliniration , for the magic you put in my life.

One of the highlights of my weekend was getting to see one of my "sisters" @intuitive_gypsy_babe ๐Ÿ‘ฏ๐Ÿฅ‚ the two hours we sat together felt like 2 minutes... it's always like that when we talk. She filled me in on all of the magic that she experienced on her trip to Bali (check out her feed for some seriously dreamworthy snaps)... I talked about our next plans for total female world domination (go, earth angels, go!) with @the.gild ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฆ„ we drank passion fruit purรฉe in our Moscow mules and followed that cocktail with some candied ginger and fresh grapefruit juice with gin (I'm on a total gin kick as of late). Her French style scramble looked incredible... and I managed to continue talking while emphatically chewing my gluten free brioche breakfast sandwich (so much yolk... so much happiness) ๐Ÿณ we laughed, cried, and she gave me a gift... the most perfect gift. And she toted it all the way back from Bali just for me. She really has the divine way of making the people she loves feel really special. I feel so lucky that she loves me. And I love her back. Big time. Daydreaming about The Gild's first retreat... and thinking that Bali sounds like just the place to make it happen. Pretty dreamy destination for chick bonding, empire building, and dream casting (@bossbabetribe taught me that term!) with a group of rad gypsies seeking to save the world... right?
