own your lane.

My message this November is quite simple babes.  I’m feeling quite strongly about it actually.  Especially coming and going so much in my life from place to place.  Because really, that’s life.  It’s the unexpected ventures we take that often are our greatest gifts.  I’m back in my city.  The one where i came from.  The one i will always belong to.  And yet, there are the other places and people i belong to.  Who belong to me also.  They are embedded in my heart, and won’t ever fade.

Joy is finding your voice.  Believing in the beautiful gifts that you know you have to share.  Then sharing them without apology or hesitation.  Seeking new ways to grow.  Discovering them.  Then sharing all the wonders that come with it.

Personal Styling with Renée.

Been taking a leap back into some very familiar places lately.  And i’m telling you, it feels good.  This familiar feeling that permeates my current everyday.  There’s something to be said about stretching your wings.  Putting yourself in challenging places and spaces.  Only to land right back where your heart feels most at home.   Yet, those feet are grounded much differently than before.  Yes?  It’s called Life.  Experience.  Loss.  Gain.  Ventures that succeed.  And those that need a gentle boot.  They all bring us back to exactly WHERE we need to land.  To that familiar place that draws our hearts to.  HOME.

Making the first move. Making it your purpose.

When do we make THE move?  The very first move?  The one we have been thinking about.  The one that keeps us up at night.  We dream about it.  We toss and turn over it.  It’s the MOVE where we see all our ambitious ideas come to life.  WHEN do we do it?

i have come to realize in my life that there really isn’t any right time for anything.  When to fall in love.  When to take that job.  When to leave a lover.  When to close a chapter.   When to open another.  When to just give in, while never giving up.  When to fight for something.  When to surrender with humility and trust.

Spring Feels.

We are almost out of the bone-chilling season babes.  Had the most glorious day last week.  The sun was peaking through every cloud as if it were surrounding me with a big bout of assurance and hope.  Spooning me confidence in the most beautifully quiet of styles.  I am reminded that this life is full of opportunity.  Opportunity to learn, succeed, fail, and fervently move forward.  You can hide behind the clouds, or you can let your light peak around the corner at your own pace.  Letting the world feel the intense talent and spirit that only you can offer.

The best gift you can give yourself...

December is here babes!  And while the dust settles a bit in preparation for a new year ahead…I find that so much joy resides in the simplicity of reflection.  Of what this coming month can truly bring.   Tis’ the season for the hustle and bustle of finding the perfect gifts to give others.  The long lists of those you need to show your appreciation.  The letters that need to be posted, and parties that need to be attended to and planned.  In all the memories of past holidays, I have never held tight in memory to the the gifts I was given, or the number of beautiful holiday cards received.  I DO recall the feelings of the holidays.  When I walked into a room with those whom I hadn’t seen in oh so long.  The friend who needed that extra tight hug .  The absolute presence of being in the moment.  The joy that comes from forgiveness.  The happiness that lives in your heart because you are simply together.  Now that is a gift I can get behind.

gratitude

November is a beautiful reminder to seek gratitude in all circumstances and experiences that knock on your door.  Discover gratitude in every step you take.  In every person you encounter.  And every result that you simply did not see coming.  It is within gratitude that greatness is born, and possibilities are endless.

Stepping up. Everyday.

Hello August!  It’s really nice to see you.  It also reminds me that Summer is initiating it’s close.  And because of that, I am reminded to step things up a bit.  How?  In absolutely every aspect of my life.  Stepping up my intentions for closing the Summer with gratitude and appreciation.  Stepping up how I choose to live out the day-to-day moments of work, life, and holiday retreats with those I am graced to be surrounded by.  Fall is knocking on my door.  And Ohhhhhh, how that makes my heart flutter a bit with the thought of closed toed shoes, booties for days, layers upon layers of scarves, and hottest of lattes.  However, let’s not wish these last days of Summer away.

SUMMER NOSTALGIA.

Summer has already been steering full speed over here, and I can’t help but feel an enormous array of nostalgia already for all the incredible moments that have rolled my way.  There is something about this time of year.  When the sun is constantly kissing your skin.  Shedding layers of routine and heavy wardrobe somehow bring with it a free-spirited energy that permeates the streets.  If there is ever a time to simply slow down, Summer has it’s way of convincing you to do just that.  And as I am soaking in every ounce that this season brings, my anticipation for what is to come drives me.  For the little memories and treasures I have already collected that sit in front of my desk…they are just the beginning of what’s to come in the making of the story that is my life.
