Hello, Weekend!


There really was something distinct in the air yesterday as the calendar ticked to another first of the month, & the collective soon realized; that while summer is thankfully still here – it will not last forever. Well dang. “How can it be August 1st already?!” Can we all just agree not to waste much more time thinking about how quickly these months will soon past, but rather live the days that are left – fill them with light, love and of course, pudding (seriously, this exists)! So this weekend I’m making a deal with the self to head back to the water,  read up on my latest book pick, wind down with a few friends, and clean a much too neglected BK nook called my apartment. Tons to read through before we let on…!

5. Email your friends and family. No one will know to recommend you if they don’t know what you’re looking and/or available for. (You know how your mom just assumes you know exactly what she wants all the time, but she gives you no verbal indication? Ya, you are doing the exact same thing if you don’t TELL PEOPLE what you do and what you are looking for.) Email your family and friends simply letting them know the services you offer and what type of clients they can recommend to you. Also, provide them a link to your website. They love you, they want to help you.

      I’ve been starring at her hair for a few weeks – think it’s just twists pinned & tucked away, but so cute! BTW, the Pocket is pretty seamless once you download, very easy to use so far;)
