Currently Coveting: Palm Leaf Print EVERYTHING

Happy Saturday friends! 

As Summer draws ever closer, more Summer related prints and designs are showing up everywhere. One print that I have been obsessed with is the basic palm print. First off, I think I love it so much because we don't have any palm trees where I live so they seem almost exotic. And secondly, the print is just very clean and sophisticated looking. ;) One item that I just realized I didn't include in the roundup is the Day Designer Palm planner! When I was choosing my planner it was between the marble and the palm. No surprise the marble won, but trust me when I say it was an agonizing decision! Maybe to still add that tropical feel to my marble DD, I'll get either this palm tree sticker or this leaf one.

Summer Reading | Ladyboss + Entrepreneur Edition

Happy almost Summer! So I just looked up when the official first day of summer is and apparently it's June 20. Depending on where you live and also if you're currently in school or not, your Summer probably already started! One of the most common goals that many people set out to accomplish during the Summer, including myself is to read more. I do enjoy the occasional fiction tales, but as someone who is busy building a brand and platform I try and use the time I set for reading, to be a time for growing and expanding my thinking. If you have goals, then you need to be doing something everyday that will bring you closer to that goal. Never stop growing and never stop learning. If you are not learning, you're not growing, which basically means goals aren't getting accomplished. 
Summer month's can become your moments of success. Use this time when most take a break, to equip and challenge yourself.

How To Create Your Own Success As A Ladyboss | #MomentumMoments

Today I am sharing an introductory post about the new series that you'll see frequently on the blog. #MomentumMoments is a new ladyboss series where I will share about all things female entrepreneurship, from goal setting, dressing for success, staying authentic and most important, how to implement these ladyboss strategies into all areas of your life.

I chose to title these posts with the tag #MomentumMoments because I believe that it's in those small moments of inspiration where you are challenged, that the drive and momentum for success is ignited. It's often in the mundane of daily habits that goals and aspirations are placed on the heart. Never underestimate a word of encouragement, an inspiring graphic on Pinterest, or a short blog post. A person full of dreams can catch fire with the slightest spark of inspiration.

One of the main themes that I try and share on the blog + socials is that of ladyboss 101. I believe that to be a ladyboss starts now! Wherever you are at in life, whether you are still in school (high school, college or grad) working a 9-5, building your own business, 16 or 26 you can adopt the traits and skills of a ladyboss. Having a ladyboss mindset doesn't start when you reach your goals, but rather YEARS before when you are day dreaming about what you would like to accomplish.

I also want to point out that being a ladyboss is NOT just for those starting their own business. It's about adopting an attitude of authenticity, activity, and positivity (A.P.P)
When the term "girlboss" is said, often the image of a cutthroat woman who doesn't take garbage from anyone and can pretty much get whatever she wants from men and the world. I don't agree. 
A ladyboss lifestyle is about a woman who desires to leave a positive impact on the world. It's about someone who strives to become the best version of herself, and drawing that out from those around her. It's not about having it all together and figured out, but rather about being willing to fail in order to win.
Vulnerability is often left out of the conversation when the above mentioned term of "girlboss" is discussed. I have learned that this is a very strong tool in aspiring for a ladyboss lifestyle. If you are going about it in a healthy positive way, then you are often forced to be real with yourself and others. This is not something to overlook and skirt around. You want to experience this because it's in these raw moments that your character, strength and courage is found.
I am super excited to share so many goodies with every one of you, whether you are looking for quick tips, real talks or just want to make some positive changes in your life. I whole heartily hope that these future posts will inspire just one of you to dream crazy big, run after whatever you want in life and leave a positive impact along the way. 

If you have any ideas for this series, go ahead and leave your suggestions in the comments and I'll try to incorporate them into my content calendar. Also, I absolutely LOVE connecting with other aspiring bossbabes, so don't hesitate to reach out so we can chat!
