Yes, that is me serving ALL that sass and a bag of chips. Had fun with my @badbettieproject gals in Longmont doing some pumpkin patch hopping. 👏🏻 Got a bunch of awesome living pieces to decorate @curtisparkclub with on Friday! 🎃
it’s not easy to take pictures like that especially if there is no one taking the picture for you but it seems like we are pretty good in it.. 😄🤙🏽 we love to try new things, it’s always fun to challenge yourself a little bit 🤓 by the way we are back at the big city life- exploring Portland today! 😍
Why is it that the minute I am on vacation or out in nature my creativity sparks and my ideas flow? Why is it that a weekend in the mountains or a day at the beach lead to more business ideas & passion than a day of brainstorming or a day in the office?
Deep down I always knew I felt better in nature but I could never pin point exactly why. In fact, I sometimes though it was just because i wasn't at work. Then I read The Nature Fix by @florence999 and I never said f*ck yes so much while reading a book. I think I read every other paragraph outloud to Chris. Shortly followed by a statement like " SEE that's what I mean!!!" The research shows that nature boosts creativity and helps restore the brain. It shows that even as much as 4 hours a month in the outdoors can have lasting effects on the body and mind. Yet, so few of us do.
I'm lucky that I have the time, money, friends and family to support myself in going outdoors. And yet, I dont get out nearly enough. If Mother Nature is so restorative, then why do most of us spend more than half of our time indoors? This is a loaded question rooted in a whole lot of biopsychosocial intricacies that I cant even pretend to know.
But what i do know is... I aim to get outside more for my own physical and mental health. I aim to inspire others to do the same. And not just in big, escape reality camping trips but in the little moments of each day. And I know that I will bring Mama Nature into Physical Therapy as yet another way to help our bodies and minds heal. The research is there folks. Time to embrace it #mothernature#PTfirst#healyourself .
It’s basically crunch time!! 👻 My party, @wicked.revel, is less than a week away and I’m so stoked!! Have a lot to get done this weekend, but first I’m meeting with @lachelaweathers for a cool project. 👀 Then headed into Denver with @laurenlouiseto to pass out flyers for Friday!! 👏🏻 We’ll either be hitting @pumpkinnightsfest tonight or getting crafty. Who wants to witch down with us??
sometimes we sit in a cafe till midnight to work on our videos, blogs etc. so the easiest way for us is to park the car somewhere at a big parking lot and sleep there 😄 we are at the point where we don’t care what people might think about us. we are in love with the life we can live right now 😍 heading to the beach now!! ☀️🌊🏖 btw. check out our new blog 🤓 #linkinbio
So today I was going to do my first actual "go live"....
This morning started very early for me.
I was on my way home this morning and after a 30 minute drive on the highway, I get off my exit and my brake caliper comes loose and shreds my new tire and rim I had just put on the day before...
I was needed at work so my mom came and picked me up while my dad, the lifesaver and trooper that he is, comes and waits with my car.
3 hours later a tow truck at last! Love you dad!
I left my charger in my car so my phone has been dead all day (shocker).... it was unfortunate because there were some things I could've taken care of online but I also loved it because I had soo much more time to read🤓
But just when I think I'm supposed to be mad or annoyed at my situation, I am grateful that I wasn't hurt and that I didn't hurt anybody and I am grateful that it's an easy fix.
I cant control the situation so there's no reason to get mad or upset about it...
But why didn't I actually do a "go live" about it?
Cause I'm too chicken shit🐔🙄😂.
Happy Wednesday 🤗💖.
last hours in Seattle.. what an amazing city!! 💚 we had a great time here but it‘s time to move on to the westcoast 😁 we are more than excited for the ocean vibes and awesome beach days ☺️ but as conclusion we are going on a little boat cruise before we leave the city 😍👏🏽
how to stay fit on a worldtrip? haha we honestly have no idea.. 🙈 it‘s hard to do a workout everyday when there is no possibility to have a shower afterwards but all we can do is keep trying to make the best out of it and use every given possibility to train hard 😊💪🏽
So many roads, so many detours - all leading you exactly where you need to be.
When I left to travel a few months ago, I was working as a temp for a luxury home development firm. I had no idea what I was going to do once I came back. I’d be 26, fresh off my parents’ health insurance, and jobless (the American Dream! 😅). Then two weeks before I was supposed to come home, I got a call from my former boss telling me I had a full-time job, full bennies and all, waiting for me if I wanted it. •
If you would have told my 21 year old self (in school for a bachelors in fashion marketing) that I would be doing sales and marketing for an ice cream company for 2.5 years, then in luxury home development after that, I would have scoffed at you and said there’s no fucking way lol. But the universe has a way of surprising us, through bumps and detours in the road, bringing us seemingly random experiences, jobs, and people we need in order to get us where we are meant to go. Life is infinitely abundant, and will ALWAYS provide. Feeling super grateful, and relieved, that something bigger than myself is co-creating life with me, and giving me exactly what I need at the right time, place, and sequence. •
Point is, life always works out the way it is supposed to. Maybe not in the way you would expect or had pictured, but perfectly nonetheless. Stoked to be back at BDR, working with some awesome people. I’ll be honest though, first day back in the working world and I am already daydreaming of where I want to travel next 😂 The travel bug is REAL!
Hey! My name is Jelea. I am a adventure seeking Photographer from Oregon. I travel every single weekend because I’m on a mission to see the most beautiful places our world has to offer. I want to take you with me along my journey 📸
we figured out that going on a whale watch tour twice is not a bad idea ☺️ we enjoyed the moment so much more on our second tour with @eaglewingtours which made the whole experience amazing! 😍 enjoying the happenings without looking through your camera or phone is just so much better 💙🐳 We definitely recommend a whale watch tour if you’re around 😁 Thanks to @eaglewingtours for taking us with you! ☺️
one of my biggest dreams was to see whales in their natural habitat and this dream came true the last two days 😍🐋 Thanks Life, Thanks Nature and Thanks God! 🙏🏽💙 ..i am just so thankful for everything at the moment! ☺️
We had the chance to go on a whale watch tour with this amazing crew. @fivestarwhales Thank You guys!! 🐳 We are so happy that we saw some whales in their full natural habitat and because it was one of the most beautiful things we’ve ever seen, we go on another whale watch tour today 😁🐋💙
Beaming this morning because October has been treating me some kind of way. 😍 Got to work with this amazing model, @samirajackson_, for the charity gala I’m hosting: @wicked.revel! This event is honestly a heck ton of #girlpower . Couldn’t do it without @_katdavies_ / @magickalmavens, @kait.in.the.wild, & @shantytowndesign. Many others are helping too, including @ftameron, @spiceandtea, @blackcat.creationco, @acumamahealthreiki, @earthnbalance_lauren, @stoneycoldstevieaustin, @whitewitchlevelup, @bloodmoon.alchemy and even more still. “Females are strong as hell.” 👏🏻 Better see you there!!
