One of my absolute favourite places to shoot is @nolasydney in Barangaroo. The food and drinks always look incredible, the team are amazing and you can't beat that light - or that view! Now, who needs a cocktail? 🍹
It's hard to get in a Fall state of mind when it's still hot as Satan's balls😫🔥 Check out my recent blog post of me trying to hold on to the last bit of summer. 🤣😎☀️Also peep these tassel earrings from @arli_gang, my girl ALWAYS come through! #linkinbio
30 days to go for Liz & Hugo! 🤗 are you two ready to say I do? 💍
Is time just flying by this year for all of my couples, or is it just me? I’ve got an exciting (and busy) few weeks coming up and I know they might pass me by if I blink, so I’m just going to try and stay awake for the next month or so 😉
DOUBLE TAP IF YOU’RE READY FOR BIG BIG THINGS! 🙌🏾🥂💕... But DON’T double tap if you’re all talk and not ready to step up and actually DO SOMETHING about your life. 🤦🏽♀️
Let’s keep it all the way real...sometimes we think way too small. It can be with anything... Are you staying in a job you hate? Are you tolerating a relationship even when you know you deserve better? Are you too busy being busy and it’s keeping you from succeeding? Or are you just going through life existing but not living? •
You will NEVER step into who you are meant to be if you are too scared to take risks! You will never become who you’re meant to be if you are scared to work for it! You will never become who you’re meant to be if you don’t believe you can have more. •
Stop letting fear kill your dreams. Stop settling for less. And start going after what you want. 💕

@etthehiphoppreacher said it best. My feet hurt, my eyes are red, my mind is running a mile a minute. This week has been a whirl wind. Luck doesn’t live here. This is all blood, sweat and prayer. Ending my week on this note. #luckisforleprechauns
We loved working with the business owners in #York UK yesterday on their Big Hairy Audacious Goals in our Idea Time workshop. This was hosted with #makeityork for business at the National Centre for Early Music.
Very interactive session, and we all did left handed mirror writing to get our creative brains firing!
I had just moved to Fresno in May. Feeling excited, scared, sad, expectant, all the things. I Marco Polo with a girl friend of mine from Mississippi and I had just explained all the feelings to her. As gfs do. 💜 She also use to live in Elk Grove and had moved away from friends that became like family (shout out to my Elk Grove ladiesss!). Only for her it was states away. So basically she was my mentor through this whole thing.
Her Marco Polo following mine with all the "feelings" I won't forget. Because spoiler alert, I'm a pessimist. I don't want to be! I want to hope for the best, but I'm reeeeally good at what ifs.
So she just told me, "You're Gonna Do Great Girl." with full confidence.
This is a friend I have shared fears with, cried with, despaired with and prayed with about all the things. So she knows me. So when in a no big deal way she said that I was gonna be great. It meant SO much. And I believed her. I did. I thought well I guess if she thinks so, knowing my fear driven mind. Then ya, let's do this.
Friends can speak LIFE without ever realizing they have done so.
Have you ever moved? If so tell me in emojis how you felt about it! 🤔 Haha, can't wait to see.
Proof that I am alive, and that I do occasionally dress up. 💛
My brain is mush cause I’ve got too much going on right now, that I haven’t had much time at all for creative pursuits outside of current projects. I’m thrilled to be costuming Story of My Life at The Studio Theatre at Tierra del Sol. It has been lovely to be designing, shopping and sewing again! I’ve got stuff coming up with Phantasmagoria, and my show Black Crow Cabaret was chosen to be remounted at The Venue Sunday September 30th! On top of all this I’m bartending, got accepted into a project-based writing job (a keyword driven product description position), trying to get some groundwork for my website AND I’ve been in the midst of trying to find a house to rent. It has been terribly stressful. Crossing all my fingers, and accepting all positive vibes in regard to the housing situation. 💙
On the positive end I got to see two wonderful productions. I LOVED The Color Purple at Theatre West End, and In The Heights at Shakes! I forget how much JOY storytelling brings me! (Funny since it is my job, but I do so enjoy actually SEEING shows.) Think I might like, journal, or take a bath or stare at the wall for a half hour. Anyone have any other advice for an over-full brain?
Tomorrow is Megan & Rob’s big day!! Although the weather may be up in the air this weekend the love that these two have isn’t! I’ve known them as a couple for a few years now and I’m happy to finally capture them become one.
I realized today exactly why I came to a conference like this and what I needed for my business ❤️ Day 2 of #togetherexperience2018 was beautiful. The wrap up of today included: in depth workshops, a discussion panel, 3 moving speakers who put it all out there & connection. I can’t wait to share with you in the coming months all the goodness that will have roots in this experience. #bonafidebosses
Goals, priorities, and tasks...they can all run together if you let them. So let’s take a moment and talk about the subtle difference between these and why cultivating the right mindset is essential to seeing the results you want.⠀
A GOAL is typically a milestone you’re looking to hit. For example, making $10k per month in revenue, having one million downloads of your podcast, or working only 3 days a week. You’re probably super familiar with setting these kinds of goals.⠀
Now, let’s go a bit deeper. A PRIORITY is something that you’re treating as more important than something else. Like when you decide to forgo Taco Tuesday with the girls and choose to spend your time working ahead on your business instead so you hit your revenue goal. You’re prioritizing your business. It’s important to recognize that this isn’t a bad thing either. By simply RECOGNIZING your priorities you can take actions which support them.⠀
With brings us to TASKS. Tasks are actions you take that are in support of your goals and priorities. They’re the actions we prioritize on a daily basis to bring us closer to our goals. So the next time you’re trying to weed through that brain dump of a to-do list, ask yourself which items on your list are in support of your goals, and then, well, make them a priority. 😉⠀
Here’s how this breakdown looks for me:⠀
My GOAL → is to launch a podcast by the end of the month⠀
My PRIORITY → is my business right now⠀
My TASKS → are things like reaching out to potential guests, hiring a podcast editor, recording interviews...you get the idea.⠀
What’s one goal your working toward right now and how are you making it a priority?⠀
Today is the second annual #nationalmakieday where we celebrate all the incredible artists and makers who are part of our handmade community 🎉🙌! It’s extra special because it’s also on the eve of our @makeitshow 10-year anniversary celebration happening at the Croatian Cultural Centre this weekend. .
This last decade has been wild n’ crazy adventure in the best possible way! I’ve met so many fantastic people who’ve inspired me to keep going and putting on more and more shows. It hasn’t always been easy, but the rewards of seeing people earn a living doing what they love makes us all worth it. I’m so incredibly proud of all the Makies past, present, and future who are a part of the handmade revolution. It’s been a privilege and honour to make it happen alongside you!!
Can’t wait to party with everyone this weekend as we celebrate Make It’s 10th Birthday 🍾🥂💃🏼🎈🎊🎂 #proudmakie#makeit10#makeitshow
Happy Friday, everyone! I reckon it might be time for some #fridayintroductions . I'm Lauren, and I’m the lady behind Peppermint Studio. Here are a few things you may not know about me…
1) I’m a graphic designer by trade, but I actually have a background in copywriting and product styling and I’m a former magazine beauty editor (my lipstick collection remains very impressive/ridonkulous).
2) My go-to comfort food is a big bowl of handmade pasta and pretty much any and all Italian food. I can make a mean fettuccine carbonara from scratch!
3) I live in Sydney, but I’m originally from the Hunter Valley - one of the best wine regions in Australia with some extremely tasty shiraz. My hubby and I usually travel to a different wine region every year to unwind (and sample the local drops of course!)
4) When I’m not working, you’ll find me curled up on the couch with a hot cup of tea, a good book, and my best buddy - cheeky pup @MacGyver_the_Cavoodle.
5) For those who are wondering, MacGyver’s favourite things include nibbling chicken, stealing socks (and any other dirty laundry he can get his paws on), and going bonkers every night - complete with turbo-charged zoomies!
Thanks for reading - and I'd love to know more about you, so drop me a line in the comments with a little tidbit or fun factoid about yourself! .
