Each day is a fresh, new start, and we decide how we’re going to make the most of it. I’m such a firm believer in mindful morning routines – it’s what gets me centered, focus, and excited for the day ahead. I’ve spoken a lot about mindful mornings on Instagram and a few times on Insta-Story Takeovers, but I wanted to dig a little deeper on the blog to show you what a ‘mindful morning’ looks like for me.
All photos by Victoria Jane Photography With the rise in remote jobs, start-ups, and self-employment, a home office is absolutely where it’s at. After going rogue and leaving my 9-5 last January, I set forth on a mission to create a zen WFH space, so I could feel both productive and inspired. I’m FINALLY ready to share the new place with you! Whether you work from home sometime, part-time, or full-time, here are ways you can create a badass home office you’ll actually love to work in.

I get a lot of people asking if yoga is my only form of exercise. The answer is: nope! Yoga is hands down me in my element, but as a Libra, I like to keep it balanced.

I am at the edge of my seat waiting for that first sign of a 70 degree and sunny forecast, so I can spend all day outside. You feel me? This time of year is when all of the excitement for summer starts to build, and people tend to get reeeally motivated to kick their workouts into high gear. Me, included.
Ah, Valentine’s Day… it’s really just another excuse to treat yourself, amiright? And if you happen to have an S.O…. well, that’s just an added bonus. Even when I was very, very single, I digged Valentine’s Day. Maybe it was because of the copious amounts of dark chocolate staring me down in the aisles or the cheesy $1 decorations I so adore at Target… Either way, I enjoy it and truly believe you can too. Regardless of your relationship status, 2/14 can be a fun opportunity to get down with your girl gang, go on a new adventure or stay in for the night. Here are some of my most favorite ideas!
Photos by Victoria Jane Photography I’m a planner, a list-maker, and you’re right to assume I make it a priority to sit down and make my list of New Year’s Resolutions… or rather my ‘Goals of 2017’. Thinking back two years, 2015 was the year of transformation – the year I made big changes in my life, which set my path into motion. 2016 has been all about the aftermath of that transformation – planting the seeds and building out the foundation. Now, this bright & shiny new year – 2017 – is firmly focused on taking action. This will be a pivotal year, I can feel it!
