She Believed She Could So She Did. Mother's Day Giveaway!

April 27, 2017

To all my ladies around the world...mom's, sisters, mother-in-laws, grandmothers, aunt's, sister-in-laws, god mothers and best friends you got this! Never forget the power we have to do what we set our mind too. Every single day you get it done because you believe in what you do. Today I want to give you these listed items below in this giveaway because you deserve to be pampered. 

I love being a mommy. I am so very grateful to have an amazing son and supportive husband. I cannot believe Dylan Reid is already 2.5 years old. The last time I brought you a Mother's Day Giveaway was when I had this bun in the oven in 2014. Two years prior to that post I wrote a post about finding the perfect Mother's Day gift. In 2015 I shared with you for the first time publicly my struggle with getting pregnant via Motherl.ly .  I also started my Mommy Edition features here with other incredible moms seen here and here. I ventured into more MOM excitement covering Dylan Reid's birthday celebrations in 2015 & 2016.  I continued to update this blog with a Mother's Day Gift Guide and took you on a brunch with other fellow strong working mamas (Shop Buru and Hey Mamas). This past year has been incredible and extremely busy for me in my career from traveling to Paris, London and Finland and much more. I am always figuring out ways to find my balance being a working mommy. However I am proud of what I have and will continue to accomplish this year.  So let's just say when you put your mind to it you can do it and you can achieve your dreams. Thank you for all of your support and shout out to all the amazing WOMEN out there.  Find out how to enter below.  I am excited to see your entries on who in your life "believed she could so she did?" 
GOOD LUCK!

I sat down tonight excited to recap my journey from Paris to London this past February and then I saw the news pop-up in my inbox and there it was another attack on our beautiful world. How can I write about London Fashion Week? I feel like I am in a bad dream. We must stop terrorism around the world. We must! My piece written in 2015 for LadyGunn Magazine on my trip to Paris explains the feeling of what it felt being in a city under attack which you can read further here.  I am really lost for words, instead I will leave you with some imagery I shot while I was in London after this trip to Paris. I am sending my love to everyone effected personally by this attack. We cannot let these awful people deter us from living a normal life. We shall not live in fear. We must unite as one community.
