Growing up, I was incredibly shy. When I was 12, I was moved from private to public school and for the first time, since I was a toddler, had to make new friends. #ad While 8th grade prepared me a bit, high school was even harder since I only knew a handful of people there. I realized that in order to gain the confidence I was seriously lacking, I needed to become a part of something bigger than me. I tried out and made our high school’s dance team, the Titanaires, in 9th grade. Suddenly, that shy girl found herself. I continued to dance throughout high school and discovered the power of teamwork.  We all walked out onto that field the same, no matter how skilled we were, what we looked like or what our home life was like. We came together as a family and put on a show that always had the fans in the bleachers cheering. Being a Titanaire changed me. 20+ years later, I’m still really good friends with a number of my teammates. Now, as the Mother of three girls, I always encourage them to find something they love, practice and become a part of something that will change their lives as it did mine. Whether it’s volleyball, gymnastics, dance or soccer, I watch my girls transform each and every time they practice, perform or play. Did you know that between the ages of 12 and 13, the number of girls who say they’re afraid to fail increases by 150%? By age 14, girls drop out of sports at twice the rate of boys. That’s why @Athleta is committed to helping keep girls in the game. That’s the #PowerofShe.  #AthletaGirl #girlempowerment #girlsquad #girlsrock #womenathletes #womenempowered #womenempowerment #girlmama #girlmom #gymnastics #gymnasticslife #handstand #handstandpractice #novahighschool #novatitans #novatitanalumni #titanaire #letsgotitans

Yesterday, I posted my deepest, darkest secret on my blog. It look me 24 hours to get the nerve to share it on here. I’ve been writing that post for a while. It probably didn’t go live the day I intended it to and it might disappear at some point. But enough is enough. Time for me to put my big girl panties on and stop lying to myself and everyone else. I hope you won’t think any different of me or judge me in any way. I’m still the same person, I’m just not pretending anymore. .

As someone that has suffered with both anxiety and depression for many years, I can tell you that there are signs that your loved one is suffering. While not everyone who exhibits these characteristics is having mental health issues, it's quite possible that those who are, exhibit many symptoms as a result of their anxiety and/or depression. Today on the blog, I’m discussing those symptoms and what to look for if you suspect you or your loved one is suffering with anxiety and/or depression. .

#ad Let’s get real for a moment. While they play a large part in us becoming Mothers, periods are no fun. They also weren’t something that I knew a whole lot about up until a couple of months ago, if I’m being honest. But results from a recent survey got my attention.  3 in 5 women surveyed reported at least one symptom of heavy periods – and among those respondents, over half had not discussed them with a doctor (57%) Why? Most women have resigned to heavy periods as their reality, with 43% saying “it’s just normal for me” and 36% saying “I’ve just learned to live with it.” Sound familiar? I must have said those exact statements plenty of times over the last 30 years. 
You don’t have to “live with it”.

Thinking back to last month and our stay in that cute little airbnb, it makes me so grateful for the opportunity to blog full-time. Not only do I get to work closely with companies that I love, but occasionally I get the opportunity to take our family on a little, but much needed vacation. It really is the best job I’ve ever had. Today on the blog, I’m continuing my series for bloggers and influencers and discussing what might be the scariest part of this job… pitching companies and applying to campaigns. Head over and check out my suggestions to nail those pitches. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! .

Thinking back to last month...

Today I had a plan. Wake up early, get the girls ready for their first day of school and then take the perfect first day of school picture to post on Instagram, where I would talk about how bittersweet it is to watch my girls grow up into these incredible young women. 
But things don’t always go as we plan. Instead, Falynn and Iyla woke up at 3:30am, got ready for school and then came downstairs at 5:00am to let us know they were ready. 5:00am... two and a half hours before they actually needed to be at school. I rolled myself out of bed at around 6:50am, Super Dad made me some coffee and I quickly shooed them outside so I could take a picture and realized that Falynn was in a long sleeved shirt, a jacket, jeans and old sneakers. I’m pretty sure her hair wasn’t brushed either. Lucia wasn’t awake yet so it would be the first year without a first day of school picture of all three of them. 😫 Whatever. I was tired. So I quickly took a picture (swipe to see) and got them off to school. Lucia woke up late and I couldn’t take a picture of her because my camera lens kept fogging up. When we walked back into the house, the dog escaped, making her even later. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And my coffee’s cold. Anyway, since I couldn’t get the perfect first day of school picture, I hope you enjoy this shot of the girls and Super Dad in their @swimzip.

Upcycling is something that I started hearing about 6 or so years ago.  I went to Cali for an Emmy’s gifting suite and met this girl who was writing a blog about upcycled fashion. She told us that she would go to the thrift store, spend less than $10 and create an outfit that could sell for hundreds of dollars. I was completely fascinated by the idea.  Imagine taking a piece of clothing (or sometimes even a tablecloth or curtains) and turning it into something fabulous and one of a kind?!

About a year ago, I was introduced to Hive Vibes on Instagram.  Upcycled clothing and more!  My love for the idea instantly rushed back to me and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on some of the pieces.  Breanna, the owner and designer has an RTS page and each week, she posts her new creations.  The first person to comment gets that item.  I marked my calendar and was ready to buy.  No one told me that I was not alone. There were so many others and it seemed they were all MUCH faster than me in commenting.  I remember the first two sales I didn’t get anything and I was so bummed.

I reached out to a couple of friends who were currently on her team and asked for advice.  Do I need to do finger exercises to get faster?  Do I need to invest in some faster Wifi?  Like…  how in the world do I snag one of these amazing pieces?  I remember getting that first item. It wasn’t because I was faster than everyone else, but because the person that commented before me had decided to pass for whatever reason. I did such a happy dance.  And from the moment that first item arrived, I was HOOKED!  I’m including some of the incredible pieces we’ve gotten from Hive Vibes so you can see my obsession.

You all know I love shopping small not only because you are supporting a very hardworking parent, but also because you can’t find these beautiful handmade pieces anywhere in the stores.  Now imagine having a piece of clothing that NO ONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD has because it’s one of a kind AND created from upcycled materials. Sounds dreamy doesn’t it?  And I’m shocked to know that so many people still haven’t discovered Hive Vibes.  While part of me wants to keep this little gem a secret so I’m not competing for pieces, I also want to shout to the world how much I love Breanna and her shop.

My grandma passed away in the end of July last year and I was completely heartbroken.  My cousin had given me a bag full of her clothes. We knew we wanted to try to have something made from them but I had no idea where to look, or what to do with them. I also didn’t want to just send these precious shirts to a stranger because if they were lost, we would never get them back.  I contacted Breanna and we came up with the throw pillow cover idea.  A couple of weeks later, I had these gorgeous pillow covers in my hands.  You can imagine the emotions that went with that package.  Imagine having a pillow to look at, hold and remember the most special person in the world.  Each of my girls received one and I sent one to my Aunt and one to my Cousin.  It’s something so special that I wouldn’t have trusted anyone else with.  It’s just another reason that I love Breanna.

So if you’re ready for something new that’s created from something pre-loved and something that is one of a kind… make sure you follow Hive Vibes Sale page!  I know you will fall in love with Breanna and her beautiful creations just as much as I have.

With the amount of waste we produce, it's awesome to know that there are shops like Hive Vibes that take used clothing and turn them into incredible upcycled fashion for kids!

XOXO
