Where to next? Ari and Preston just arrived in Portland as Sabah is taking up residence at @shopboswell TONIGHT (9/19) from 5 - 9PM and Thursday (9/20) from 11 - 6PM. Join us for some good tunes and local PNW wine tasting.
After Portland our road trip out west continues as we head up to Seattle (Sabah’s first time in the city!) for a weekend residence at @glasswingshop from 9/21 - 9/23. Ari and Preston will be there all weekend (11 - 8PM on Saturday and 12 - 6PM on Sunday). But we kick everything off with an opening party on Friday (9/21) from 5 - 9PM w/ local wine from @synclinewinery and oysters from @taylorshellfish.
Best while... living for the crisp PNW fall days. ⠀
Wine: @erathwines Pinot Noir 2015

Taste: There’s nothing better than crisp and sunny fall days. They’ve already hit up here in Seattle! Which really means I’m allowed to drink ALL the red wine at all times of the day. On the sailboat this week, besides piping champagne, we opened a local PNW Pinot Noir. What’s your favorite red wine to take on Fall activities??
This Pinot Noir is from Oregon. It’s a really decent Pinot for the price with an earthy nose, red fruits, and a little oak! It’s pretty smooth and medium bodied. It’s also a screw top, which makes it so much easier to take on boats. I have a few sailgating weekends coming up and this may be coming with me (along with multiple other bottles as well). Happy #winewednesday friends!

One of my favorite quotes to date, by Theodore Roosevelt, is:
“Comparison is the thief of joy.”
So unbelievably true.
Because comparing doesn’t provide any insights, lessons, or perspective on how you can get better.
Really, it just delays your actions and fills your mind with doubt and overwhelm.
But I remember struggling with this for years...
Even back to being a kid and comparing clothes and shoes. So much that I’d do whatever I could to get my hands on some Jordan’s or Nike Air Maxes.
But to be honest, I never really liked either of those shoes. I just bought them because I thought that’s what was cool and it “compared” to the other guys.
To this day... I have a closet FULL of kicks, yet I still wear my dirty black Chuck Taylor’s more than anything else. Because that’s ME.
But it took me years to learn and I’ll openly admit it. I compared my physique a lot as well (most of us do, social media doesn’t help).
I trained with guys who were bigger than me, more shredded than me, faster and stronger than me... and I would get frustrated because I wasn’t at their level. Even though realistically some of them had been training for a decade longer than me (literally).
Whether we’re talking money and business, relationship status, happiness, physique, strength... comparison seems to be programmed in us by default unfortunately and for some, it’s hard to ignore.
Your natural abilities.
It’s all YOURS and nobody else’s.
Which means that everybody else’s, has nothing to do with yours.
Which means focusing on everybody else’s, will never improve yours.
No matter what “yours” is.
People can influence you, but the minute you allow comparison to enter the frame - you’ve lost. Focus on you and you will be a hell of a lot happier (more successful, too).

So appreciative of my amazing parents who watched my Instagram Stories and couldn’t stop calling/texting to see how I was doing. 👨👩👧 Now, if I could only figure out how to have some home-cooked Chinese food show up on my kitchen table... 🤔😂 JK! I love you guys so much already!! 💕💕
Obsessing over this ash tone using @redken #shadeseqgloss to always give me beautiful colors and results. Ash tones are more maintenance so it is recommended to get toned every 6-12 weeks; Clients, please schedule your hair appointments before the holidays now so I can get you in! 👍🏼✨
