Questions For Self Discovery

I recently was reading a post by my ultimate blog, life and girl crush, Stephanie Sterjovski where she was discussing these journal questions that caused her to stop and do some self-reflection. I loved reading her experience and after taking some time to journal with the same questions, I was really drawn to share with all the ladies on this blog.

7 Ways To Empower Other Women Today

Happy Wednesday ladies! A topic that is close to my heart is that of equipping and empowering other women. If you look at the lives of successful women, most of the time they've had a figure in their life that they say highly contributed to the success they have now. They had someone in their life who was their motivator and voice of empowerment in moments of doubt. Let's chat about some ways that everyone no matter if you're in college or the corporate world, can uplift others and be that positive force in their life.

Craving: Fall

When the end of July rolls around, I am really wanting the fall season and craving everything that comes with that! I blame it on Hallmark channel giving a few sneak peeks on upcoming fall movies (I'm a sucker for all things Hallmark channel). It might also be the fact that it has been abnormally HOT here in WA this summer. As I write this, I'm sitting in an air conditioned house because it's 100 degrees outside. Whatever the reason may be, I'm honestly not complaining. I love having the excuse to make pumpkin everything and pull out those big sweaters. I love the crisp early mornings and the gorgeous art show that the trees put on. 
Consider this the first of many Autumn themed posts. So, if you have aparticular fall themed post you would like to see here on Graciela, then let me know in the comments!

What are you most looking forward to in the fall?

Essentials For The Faith Based Girlboss

Faith is a large part of my life and any girlboss endeavor I pursue. Being a girlboss means having a balance and understanding of all areas of your life.

When I find myself in a creative rut, need to get motivated to tackle the day's to-do list, or just a bossbabe to give me a pep talk, I can always count on these podcast ladies to be there.

They are successful because they are lifetime learners. They commit to learning new things every single day. Successful people never stop learning.

Building Your Tribe + How To Find and Connect

We all need a friend who pushes us towards our dreams. Who encourages us to take a leap of faith. Who they themselves are high achievers. Who can talk fashion and trends, but can just as well talk about leadership principles and money management. Having that cheerleader in our life is so important, but it's even more vital to have a whole squad of cheerleaders who want to see you succeed and that you know you can always rely on to tell it to you straight because they want nothing but the best for you.
We need our girlboss tribe not only to grab a coffee and shop with but to build businesses and change lives with. In a culture where women compete to overpower each other, we need empowered women to empower each other. You only truly succeed when you raise others up.

So, if you are in high school, college, or working and looking to to incorporate habits of a girlboss into your daily life, then today's post is just for you!

How To Be Productive While Flying + 5 Travel Destinations

I recently came across the saying that "plane time is game time". Instead of using a 2, 5 or even a 10 hour flight to watch Netflix or play Candy Crush, use it as time to create, brainstorm, and refuel yourself.
