Good morning Madison✨I’ve been a little quieter on here than usual because I started my first week at my new job! I’m so excited to be joining the @ideasthatevoke team and can’t wait to really get stuck in! 🤗 First weeks are always a little funny because you’re learning names and getting up to speed and can’t really do much, but I’ve felt so welcomed and am so excited to really dive in.Third job’s the charm, right?! 😂 Happy Thursday, friends! Almost the weekend! #bemadison#midwestmoment#madisonblogger
If it's the week before Thanksgiving and your laundry room and prep space looks like this, is it really the week before Thanksgiving? May all your spaces be this clean and organized ahead of the holiday...mine are not! | 📷: @etannenbaum |🔨: @lakeviewbuildersny
I love tiny details— the ones you don’t expect. The detail on the back of my Christmas Carol Wreath notecards are kind of like Jesus’ coming. Secretive, overlooked, understated... but filled with the most important truth, hope, and beauty in the whole world. .
Today is your last day to PREORDER Christmas cards and get a 5x7 free wreath print with it! This guarantees you get a set (since I’m doing a one-time printing), AND you get a tiny gift in return. All notecard preorders go out the weekend after Thanksgiving. Click the link in my profile to shop 🌿
This quote from the founder of the Barnum & Bailey Circus is so true.
Your business will be a complete circus if you let your cash flow dictate your strategy.
Are you the ringmaster of your money, or are you watching the cash balance in your bank account to decide how to spend in your business?
Kicking up my heels and soaking in the final moments of autumn here in Covent Garden. I’m a summer girl through and through, but there’s something about the crispness of the air and the final burst of color before a barren winter that makes me FALL in love with this season. I’ve also fallen in love with my new @rollienation shoes! 🍁 🍂 🍃
What’s your favorite season?
Hands up who’s started their Christmas shopping. We have finally, and thanks to @brothersewinguk we’ve wrapped it too, so we could pop it into this appliquéd present sack.
We’ve teamed up with @brothersewinguk for our latest Christmas craft. This present sack is simple to make and you can appliqué any design you like on the front. 🎅🏻
We’ve got another three of these to make now, as all our kids want one! The tutorial and templates are over on the blog (link in profile).
Thanks so much to @brothersewinguk for sponsoring this project and making us a little bit more organised for Christmas!! 🎅🏻
Hey y’all- I’ve been working on many gift size paintings PLUS ornaments and would love for you to swing by Palladio to shop! This store is fabulous and will give you inspiration to make your house a home!! -don’t forget your list! Come see me at my pop up table- 🎄🎅🏽 🔔 🎁
What are three things that bring you joy right now? For me, it’s: 1) Working out @crossfitmobile and my friendships, 2) the hour of me time I get each morning before my family wakes up, and 3) quality time at home with my family watching movies, or eating dinner each night. Pretty simple things. But I love it! Now you go!
As I'm cozied up on the coach listening to Thank You, Next for at least the millionth time since it came out, I think how weird it is that as a woman who married her first real boyfriend from high school how I can relate so much to a song that is about having multiple exes.
But in 4, almost 5 years of business, I look back and realize I have a lot of ex-projects. While the majority have been amazing, there were some projects that I definitely could have been more clear, or understanding, or just educated my client more rather than felt frustrated.
But we learn from every single client we work with, whether it's amazing or less than great. What is the biggest lesson you learned from a client?
Thanks to all the members who came to @limewoodhotel yesterday for the Christmas shopping event!! It was lovely to meet so many of you and thank you for being so supportive. We had a great day! 😁 We also met the lovely ladies behind @aureejewellery, their jewellery is incredible, go take a look. 😍 Limewood as always was so beautiful, I can’t wait to go back xx
Christmas Elf in the making, over here 🙋🏼♀️ 🎄 🙋🏼♀️
I always get SO excited about Christmas gifting, and pride myself on finding the most thoughtful and imaginative presents for my friends and family 🎁
And this holiday season I’ll be doing the mad-dash gifting drop-off with a bottle of fizz in hand, dressed in @nextofficial’s festive tartan coat and their cosy bobble hat 🍾 Just think of this as my official dress rehearsal...
And a top tip for the season: I find it so helpful to have a generous supply of tissue paper and festive gift bags to hand at all times, in case you have a last-minute wrapping emergency and need a simple solution. These retro gift bags from Next are going to be so useful this Christmas! 📸 by @lydiaxcollins #WithLoveFromNext#NextChristmas
Hey guys! What’s on your reading shelf right now? This is my recent selection of biz & inspirational books. Most of them bought recently and are still to be read! 🙈 With the wedding season now over, I should have more time on my hands. I should also give up the absolutely worst habit of looking at my phone before bed 🙄 & read more instead... What are you reading at the moment or planning to read? Business or fiction! #businessbooks#iread
Fear. Feeling lost is the subconscious default that makes inaction the logical choice. Fear sends many people into analysis paralysis and distorts reality, keeping you exactly where you are.
Focus on living your dreams not your fear of failing and you will have clarity on what your next step should be. .
I'm here to let you know that your ability to figure it all out on your own has nothing to do with how smart you are and everything to do with realizing that YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS. .
While you may not have all the answers, you are smart enough to reach out to the people who can help you. .
I know that I would not have had all the right structures and systems or the brand that I have today, if it wasn't for my ability to be vulnerable and smart enough to invest in coaching and courses that would help me get there with more confidence and ease. .
You deserve to be supported in your life and the process of building your brand and business. .
I use to believe it was costing me less to do it on my own; what I realized is that I was playing small and staying in my comfort zone.
Life does not need to be a struggle and while the journey will challenge and push you in ways you never imagined, having the right support system in place will give you the strength and confidence to keep going and breakthrough. .
I am here to support you on your journey to building a brand built on faith and expanded consciousness that you can be proud of. One that is built on possibilities not fear and one that is totally aligned with your desires. .
If you are feeling like you need some support on this journey, I invite you to book a free 30-minute session with me this week. .
Every woman's story is different and I am here to help you leverage the power of your story into a unique, elegant and professional brand.
La vie est belle, live the cultured life and make this an epic week.
