“talking under pink skies I think our hearts are starting to show, it’s better you and I, under pink skies” -LANY

It took me 3 years to agree the military wife life. I wasn't this super proud supportive spouse. I thought I couldn't live a life away from my family and have my kids barely know their grandparents. I thought couldn't do deployments. Inside I hoped there would be a better career for my husband.
So for 3 years we fought. He wanted it, I didn't.
He must have been praying because one day randomly I said okay let's go for it.
And no, it's no been easy, but now I have independence and strength I never thought I'd have.
Thanking Jesus for pushing me out of comfort and into growth🙌

It’s beginning to look a lot like.... Sweater Weather 🍁🍂

For any hardcore poetry fans out there, I know this poem is actually about spring, instead of autumn. but it still feels relevant to this season. Begin afresh, begin afresh. That’s been the rhythm of my days recently. Muck up? Begin afresh. Try something and fail? Begin afresh. There is so much hope in those two little words. It doesn’t have to be perfect for there to be growth. And what seems to be dying right now is a sign that, just like the trees, we’re being prepared for something fresh and full of life 🍂


But in all seriousness! Be|You is ON Sunday 18th November and there are still some huge announcements to be made!
It's going to be an jam packed day full is self love, confidence, building strength, friendships and feeling AMAZING 💛

From workshops, to dance and singing sessions, to stall and guest talks to the most colourful photo shoot you have ever seen 💛

“The #future belongs to those who believe in their #dreams.” [E.Roosevelt]
When we dream and see the #sea and the #sun, we have the force to look at #stars and pursue our dream! 💙 #pursuewhatislovely #seaside #landscape_lovers #beautifulmatters

They say you are born twice in your lifetime. The day you were born and the day you’re awaken. .
I always have clients say to me “someday I’ll (insert really big dream)” .
When is that someday? If you keep saying going with the “someday” mentality, someday is today. Someday will be yesterday. This is YOUR life, follow your dreams now, not someday. 💗✨

So I’ve been doing this new thing where I try not to feel guilty for doing things for myself. It sounds like such a simple concept, but it’s taken me 4 years to really grasp it. Taking care of yourself is so important and it doesn’t make you selfish or a bad person. I’m sure you guys struggle with this too so I challenge you to do something for yourself this week no matter how small it might be. Also, have I mentioned how much I love my @marcjosephny loafers lately? 😍

“The horrors of hospitality.

Most of us have been there. We have a moment of ‘Why do I put myself through this!’ Amidst thoughts of simply going back to bed and leaving everyone else to figure it all out.

Isn’t there supposed to be joy in giving? In serving?

It seems that in recent years, we have managed to over complicate the concept of hospitality. Hospitality is not a home decor competition or an opportunity to display our culinary skills (or lack thereof.) It’s a way for us to love others.” @lauracthomas in ‘Company’s coming. (The horrors of hospitality)’

One of our favorite things about our work is that we’re not a one-and-done kinda biz. We love the nitty-gritty process when we work with clients because that’s what makes their brands gorgeous and irresistable.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m going to be honest with you. Not everyone who asks about working with us has the same vision. Some people want “just a logo.” And want it, ummm, next week? And this is the truth: We can’t do that for you, friend!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because branding takes time. Even if the end result is “just” a logo and some other creative elements, the process behind it is deep and intentional. (And oh, boss, we LOVE the intentional part.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We make sure our client knows who they’re speaking to. Where does their desired audience shop? What do they read? What’s their ideal vacation?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Once you have a detailed profile of your audience, we dive into color psychology. What’s the vibe that will connect? What design and colors will appeal specifically *to your audience* and represent your values and intentions to a T? There’s so much to think about!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ever wonder why your favorite logo is so memorable? There’s a reason you like it. Because that business went through a process like this to get it *just right* for YOU!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You could get a logo in a week and be done with it. But we think you’ll end up with a re-do and, honey, that’s the worst!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you put intention and love and TIME into your brand, it will love you back. And if you can do it with people who love your vision almost as much as you do and want to process ‘til it hurts, we’re your ladies. ❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
