A couple of months ago I told you all about my 80 Day Obsession and how IN LOVE with it I was. I couldn’t wait to show you my final results and tell you all about the full process. Wellll, I have to confess… I won’t be able to do that. Instead, I have something even better to share. Let’s back up.

You know how they say as you get older you start to “turn into” your parents… it seems like that’s often said in a negative light, but I’ll be honest. The parts of me that are most like my mom are the ones I love the most. In honor of her recent birthday I wanted to take a moment to shine some light on my amazing Mama and why I owe pretty much my whole career to her.

Over the seventeen years I’ve been a hairstylist I’ve used countless different tools. Hair dryers, curling irons, and flat irons of all kinds. As you’d expect, some have been better than others, but it takes something special to really get me excited. And I’ll be honest… when I first bought my Dyson blow dryer I was NOT excited. It was nothing that I expected it to be.

Introducing Virtue, the life-changing new haircare products

New technology is always such a cool thing to learn about, and it’s even better when it coincides with your passion. Recently, my studio brought in a new product line and I wanted to let you guys in on why I’m SO excited for these new hair products.

You may or may not know this, but I have a hair/fashion/pretty much everything idol and I have to tell you all… I am officially ON-TREND with Tracee Ellis Ross. When I saw her post this week about the same fashion trend I’m currently OBSESSED with I’m not gonna lie, I fangirled a little. What is this amazing new fashion addiction?

It’s the middle of June, which means we’re almost to the halfway mark in the year. Each year, sometime in June, I like to do a “halfway” check-in on my goals for the year. Goals don’t have quite the same impact if you just write them down and then toss them away never to be looked at again.

I’ve found that when I re-connect with my initial goals, evaluate where I’m at, and change course if needed, my goals become even more effective. Sometimes, I’m right on track and just need to keep grinding. Other times I find that the goal I had set either needs to be adjusted, or I’ve gone in a different direction completely.

This year when I sat down to look at my 2018 goals, I had a huge realization. My 2018 word of the year wasn’t going to make it all the way through. Why do I feel like “Mindset” as my word has pretty much expired? It has been such a laser focus for me for so long that I feel like I’m actually in a really good place with it. My focus on Mindset really began in 2017, and while I wanted it to be at the forefront of my mind throughout 2018, I didn’t anticipate it becoming so ingrained in my daily life that I wouldn’t need the “reminder” anymore.

When you embrace a Mindset shift entirely, it’s not something you can just let go of or unlearn, so while I still wholeheartedly believe in the importance of Mindset—I’m ready for a new word to help guide my goals for the second half of 2018.

I’ve decided my Word of the Year (take two) is going to be Sustainability. I’ve done a lot of reflection in the past couple of months (some of which I talked about in my birthday post), about where I want to be in the next five and ten years. This means adjusting what I’m doing right now to direct the course of my life into a place where it’s sustainable. The pace, flow, energy, etc. all need to be at a level that I can maintain for the long-term. Choosing Sustainability as my word for the next six months will help me continue to choose a path that will help me reach my five and ten year goals.

The goals I set up at the beginning of the year always span a variety of topics from business goals to fitness goals to personal goals. I’m super excited that right this very moment I am crossing another 2018 goal off of my list as I am in Southbeach Miami for a girls weekend with some of my best friends. Being so passionate about my business, I’ve found that I often put the most energy into my career goals, sometimes skipping over “smaller” personal goals in the meantime. This year I was determined to put energy into my personal goals as well. If you want to keep up with my girls trip, you know you can find me on my insta-story.

Where are you at with your 2018 goals? Is there anything you need to readjust for the rest of the year? I’d love to hear about where you’re at. Drop a comment below and tell me how your goals are going!

I’m just coming home from another trip to Laguna, and I can’t waitttt to tell you all about my latest experience at BMS convention. If you’ve been following along you know I’ve taken several trips to California in the past year and a half so I thought I would let you in on the number one reason why I can’t get enough of more training and experience with BMS and NBR (the business and extension sides of the same company).

Tomorrow is the halfway point between two major milestones—I will officially be 35. I am halfway to 40 (from the last milestone anyway), and man is it an eye opener to realize. Birthdays can stir up a lot of feelings, both positive and negative, but as I roll on into my mid-thirties I’m actually feeling pretty good. It’s easy to feel apprehension about getting older, but I really believe that age is just a number, and what really matters is the experiences you’ve gathered that have led you to where you are.
