A few weeks ago I met up with an old friend who is now an amazing photographer to shoot some looks for this lovely little bloggy of mine. Although I couldn't feel my hands or feet during the shoot, the pictures turned out better than I imagined! If you are ever in Michigan or just need a great photographer, Make sure you check out Luna Photos!
If you have been following my blog for a while, then you know I have been trying to get my Styling Business up and running. I have been working on my portfolio, trying to perfect it. I spend hours and hours searching for photographers & models to do test shoots with. I also spend hours upon hours hunting for inspiration from Fashion magazines, fashion blogs, pinterest, etc. I want this more than anything at this moment and have for quite some time now. I know when the time is right, it'll happen for me!
In the meantime, I came across a 100% online Personal Styling company Called Keaton Row. I have become a stylist with the company, building look books to help people with their styling as well as getting my name out there as a stylist. The best part is, its completely free, except for the merchandise you purchase of course. Here is My Profile if you are interested in having me as your stylist. You can also contact me via email/fb/instagram or on my blog if you want me to style any of your photo shoots!

The colors in these photos makes me so happy. Unfortunately all those colors are no longer so vibrant. Although the sun is shining, it is bitter outside and drab looking. I am not a huge fan of winter at all, as far as im concerned, it can snow on christmas and then melt and go away. I do love layering and snuggling up with my big furry socks and cozy sweater but I tend to not want to leave the house much in the winter..
This past summer I was running as much as I could and eventually got myself to start eating as healthy as I could. It was hard to get started and focus but after a while, I started seeing results, my clothes fit bigger and differently. A lot of people also started to notice my weight loss, which made me want to just keep going more and more. My mind and body was feeling amazing. Running for me was so therapeutic that if I wasn't running or sweating, I just wasn't in the best of moods. Even when I was on vacation in Miami, after a long night of drinking, I was getting up early to hit the gym. I loved how this lifestyle was turning out.
Come September, things started to get stressful at home. My Grandpa not doing well at all and declining rapidly, I started to get stressed and stopped working out because I couldn't focus.
If you have been following my blog recently, you know that my Grandpa passed away on September 23rd. It hit me hard, but at the same time It just didn't feel real to me. I didn't believe that he was really gone. I stopped working out, stopping eating healthy and didn't really care. I had to just grieve and feel the sadness. Almost 2 months later, I am missing my Grandpa more than anything right now and its starting to make me really not care about what I am putting in my body at all.
The other morning I woke up with the worst stomach ache and knew I had to stop eating the bad things I was eating and start to get back that focus. No more sweets or processed foods. Lots of water & fruit.
Thanks to pinterest for giving me that kick of motivation I needed this morning. Although it is cold absolutely freezing outside, there are so many workouts I can do at home to get me back to where I want to be!
