Lane check

Since relaunching my website AND adding a shop I’ve really had to focus on what I’m doing and not veer into other lanes. It’s so easy to look on social media and see what other people are doing and feel like you aren’t doing enough. It’s also easy to see a glimpse of someone else’s progress and think you need to move faster, do things differently, and essentially rush your process.

Years ago I made a blog post about not comparing your hustle to someone else’s highlight reel. That statement still stands true. People post what they want...


What’s In My Bag | Mini Givenchy Antigona

I am getting back into a consistent schedule of YouTube and my first video back is what’s in my bag. I love these videos cause they show how much can really fit in certain bags. I also liked making it cause it’s a bit more mindless. I LOVE this bag. I bought it for myself as a birthday present and I use it as my daily.

There we had drinks or course and went go cart racing. Saturday morning we went hiking at Cedar Ridge Preserve with two other couples. I’d never been hiking so I was TIRED after and slept for the rest of the day. We hiked for 3 miles and who knew walking could be such a workout. The other couples go every Saturday so we will definitely continue to go....

Skincare Feature: The Kyrie Collection

Ashley Ward is a Grand Rapids native that has recently tried her hand in skincare. The Kyrie Collection has a wide range of products including a fresh tea face mist, detoxifying charcoal mask, cold brew beard oil, and more. 

“When I was younger I loved going to my grandma's house and the first thing I would do is go to her vanity where I'd find all of her makeup and skincare products. She'd order from Avon all of the time and save her samples for me to play around with and pamper myself, that's where my obsession with skincare and self-care began,” Ashley said....
