This post is a compensated collaboration with QVC. As always, all opinions are my own.
With International Women’s Day here, I wanted to open up about my journey to blogging full-time and share some important lessons from my experience as a female entrepreneur. This is a topic I’m extremely passionate about because I believe that one’s personal journey and experiences can help and guide others to find success.
I’m excited tocollaborate with QVCin today’s post to share lessons I’ve learned along the way in my blog-to-business journey. Plus I’ll be sharing my picks from their female-made beauty brands that share the same #dreamdaredo empowerment that International Women’s Day embodies. In honor of International Women’s Day, QVC® and participating vendors will donate a minimum of $250,000 to benefit Nest, a global nonprofit committed to the social and economic advancement of women by supporting female artisans who might not have the resources they need to flourish.
As a blogger and social media content creator, it’s so important for me to stay organized and on top of everything from my Instagram feed to blog content and deadlines. I know how easy it can be to forget a task when there are so many things to accomplish with limited time. Although I have a small team to help me, I want to stay as organized as possible. One of my favorite ways to do that is by using various apps. I’ve discovered so many different apps that have helped me tremendously. And I wanted to share my top 10 essential apps every blogger should use. Check it out in today’s post.

Delegating was a weakness of mine for the longest time because I always felt the need to do everything myself. It’s natural to want full creative control when you’re blogging or running your own business. After all, no one understands your goals and vision better than yourself. However, I learned last year that it’s nearly impossible to grow and have a healthy work-life balance without people to help you. I’ve slowly brought a team together in the last few months, which I mentioned in my 2018 bucket list, and it has made a world of difference. I know many of you can relate to this, so I wanted to create a dedicated post about tips for delegating better.
In celebration of the the month of love, I wanted to kick off February with a self-care post. Although I love spending Valentine’s Day with Jordan and we make an effort to celebrate every year, I also firmly believe in self-love. As Carrie Bradshaw says, “Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first”! One of my favorite ways to practice self-care is through positive affirmations because they provide clarity and encouragement in my thoughts. Below, I’ve shared five positive affirmations to start the week.
This is a bit of a different post for me, BUT like I said in my resolutions post, I want to provide you guys with more content of value this year. One of the priorities on my list is to get more REAL about my daily life and a look at my normal routine. So why not include a peek into my fridge and my newly adopted clean eating grocery list?
I don’t often post about my diet – this is something that I think is so private and personal for a lot of people. The last thing I want to do is make you feel like what you’re eating is WRONG. I think it’s important for everyone to listen to their bodies when it comes to making informed food decisions.
I have a sensitive stomach and several food allergies (gluten and dairy specifically) which is why I chose to start the year by adopting clean eating habits. The months of November and December had me eating SO poorly and making the worst food choices for my system. I was tired, unmotivated, unproductive – walking around in basically a fog. Bad food decisions were impacting me in BIG ways.
In today’s post, I’m outlining easy food swaps that I made in our fridge, my clean eating grocery list, and how it’s changed the way I feel!
