    Happy Monday everyone! Hope you had a great weekend! Today I wanted to talk about getting out of our comfort zone and five reasons why you should try something new. A couple of weeks ago I took my son to park which happened to have a little skate park too. He found an abandoned skateboard and started to learn how to use it. I remember just sitting there watching him and being so proud of him for not being afraid to try something new. He wasn’t afraid of falling or letting any of his fears get in his way of learning something new. I honestly believe sometimes it takes looking life through a child’s eyes, to make you face your fear of the unknown and of failure. Here are five reasons you should try something new.

    Happy 4th of July!

    Today I wanted to keep in short and sweet with this red polka dot dress for $40 I wore on our trip to Tulum. Josh and I went to have drinks at Kin Toh Azulik which was the coolest tree house restaurant overlooking the beach and jungles of Tulum. The architecture was marvelous and the scenic views so unique. Even the bathrooms were beautiful. It was so eco friendly, with limited electricity, and no central air conditioning. They had a live DJ and a hookah bar. Kin Toh was definitely a place to see in Tulum.  Check out more pictures of this restaurant and my outfit below!

    Kendra Scott Fundraiser for Santa Fe – A Little Goes a Long Way


    Happy Monday everyone! Hope ya’ll had a great weekend! Today I just wanted to recap my Kendra Scott event I had three weeks ago to help raise money for Santa Fe school shooting victims. I have so many people to thank, including everyone who came out, to all the amazing bloggers who partnered up for this event, and to all the brands who donated their time and service to make this a fun event for everyone. I also wanted to share a little Monday motivational thought on how a little act of service can make a difference in this world. And though we may not see the eventual outcome, I consider our actions like a drop in an ocean that creates a continuing and ever-growing ripple. We are that drop in the ocean that is part of a huge wave that will make a difference in this world. Read more of my recap and thoughts below.
