✨New on the blog: My Favorite Hikes In Sedona for Sunrise and Sunset (link in my bio)!
I can’t deny my love for this place. Sedona is just so magical (like me! Kidding, not kidding). How could you not love red rocks and vistas like this? If you plan on visiting the desert this winter, I highly recommend adding Sedona to your list. Anyhow, I’d love for you all to give the blog a read and let me know what you think🤗! Happy Saturday!

If you asked me when I was younger what I would be doing at twenty nine I think I would have told you I’d be married, with two/three kids, working part time at a whatever job. I would have probably painted a picture very similar to my childhood, which I absolutely loved, and probably would have described myself very similar to my childhood view of my mother. However fast forward, I am twenty nine, I am not married (shocking yes, so many wedding dresses) I do not have children; yet, I work tirelessly at my career as a hairstylist which I am so passionate about, and am traveling the world pretty extensively! I don’t know how it happened, or when or even why but some where along the way I realized my life truly could be anything I wanted. I remember hearing that as a child, my parents were so encouraging for us to do whatever we wanted, but when you live in a small town in a modest manner, with limited resources or knowledge of the world outside of your island your don’t even really know how to dream much bigger. Regardless along the way I started to expand; I expanded my horizons by traveling, my mind by consuming as much knowledge as possible from books and the use of internet sources, my body through yoga, hiking, and out door activities, and lastly expanding my mind through meditations and sound therapy. I could have never imagined my life now, it keeps exciting me around every corner, ever new day as it unfolds into a new opportunity for growth and adventure. As this year is quickly coming to an end I am really taking some time to reflect and feel true appreciation for all of the amazing opportunities that have come my way. I am also feeling a warm excitement for this upcoming new year and all the possibilities that are about to unfold ahead of me! I hope you find encouragement in this post, and that you take a moment to think about about yourself as a eight year old looking up to your adult self now; feel proud accomplishments and expand your dreams to now shape your ever growing mind. .
“Everything has seasons, and we have to be able to recognize when something's time has passed and be able to move into the next season. Everything that is alive requires pruning as well, which is a great metaphor for endings.” -Henry Cloud
We've all got problems. That's a given.
But those of us who have put in the effort to learn how to cope with those problems seem to be the happiest.
Do you agree?
I think too seek a life without problems will not only waste your time, but will actually prevent you from achieving the things you want from that life.
On every path you choose to take it is very likely that there will be obstacles along the way.
So don't seek a life free from problems. Seek the ability to overcome those problems and the strength to travel whichever path you desire.
Remember this as you go about your day!
Hope you all have a good one!

Frozen and peaceful ❄️
Время от времени после фотографий наших прогулок в сторис, мне пишут, что нам повезло и мы живём в каком-то живописном, сказочном месте, и как быть, если ты не в таком. Мне радостно, что создаётся такое впечатление, но ведь это только от части так.
У нас обычная белорусская деревня, с такими же полями, лугами и лесом, как в любой другой. А самая большая моя боль в том, что по нашей улице газовые трубы не закапывали. Столько красоты как будто перечеркнуто ребёнком с жёлтыми карандашами... .
Это все к тому, что в любом месте можно находить прекрасное, если смотреть нескучающим взглядом ♥️ мы столько не замечаем каждый день, я это понимаю, когда вижу знакомые места, снятые другими людьми немного под другим ракурсом, восторгаюсь и начинаю смотреть по сторонам ещё внимательнее, более жадно что ли♥️
This is some footage from my first flight with my new mavic air. I think having a drone is a game changer for photography and especially video because it allows you so many more options to setup your composition
🌲Evergreen🌲snow covered and abundant in this magical woodland just north of Åkersberga. Domarudden is a place we used to walk our springer spaniel Moutie, where my dad tried (and failed) to ice skate on the frozen lake and where I took some of my very first steps. Treading in footsteps long neglected but never forgotten.
Go grab a Rocky Rucksack, the only bag you’ll ever need! This Rucksack is perfect for weekend trips, camping, coffee shop visits, school days and wherever else you find yourself! Made by hand, start to finish, right here in the USA 🇺🇸
Alpenglow. That slow and low blaze of sunlight as it quietly meets its horizon, casting fresh or fading light on the uppermost ridges and peaks. Setting the world on fire. .
The Alpenglow Collection. An annual small batch release.
Stacked sterling silver and solid 14k yellow gold. All reclaimed metals. This cuff features a .07ct genuine diamond and is stamped ‘Alpenglow’ on its flip side. There are a couple pair of layered mountain disc earrings this time around, too
My last shop update of the year will be this Sunday evening at 6pm PST. The Alpenglow collection, an Elisa Mine turquoise statement necklace, and a few Tall Pines bar pendants will be the offering.
