What Keeps Me Going

I have to be honest, while I try to remain positive and motivated, last week was difficult. You might have noticed the lack of blog posts and if you follow me on snapchat (sereinwu) my anxiety confession. In my recent Q&A video, I explain a lot about my history. Without going too much into it and still keeping a bit of privacy, I was abused on and off for most of my life. Admitting this is difficult. For so long I…

Dior Ankle Boots + Getting Older

April is my birthday month. Yes I said it, birthday month. I believe the month you were born in, is a special time for the individual. Recently I treated myself to an amazing pair of Dior Ankle Boots from their cruise collection. I vlogged a wonderful day with hubs spent eating and walking around Beverly Hills a few weekends ago when I picked up these beauties. You can watch the video here. I also did a sneaky peek on my…

Santa Monica Beach & Body Image

Happy Monday! Hope you had a wonderful weekend, are refreshed, and ready to start the week. I wanted to share a few photos from a recent trip to Santa Monica Beach. While we only live 30 minutes from the beach, it seems rare for us to make a trip to the beach, to sit by the water and put our toes in the sand. This life guard tower has been something I wanted to sit at for awhile.  I know…

The Foldable Tote

Today’s giveaway on the blog features this practical, foldable tote from Vine Street Market USA. If you live in Los Angeles, the recent ban on plastic bags has made the streets cleaner, but shopping a bit more difficult. I always keep reusable bags in my car, but remembering to grab them before heading into a store is another thing. Remembering to put them back in the car before my next shopping trip is a whole other struggle. What I love…

New Year Detox & Goals

Every year I like to evaluate the past year. My achievements, my failures, disappointment, the roles I play. What were my goals? How did they shift? Where are my priorities now? What do I want for myself this year? These are all questions I have learned to ask myself from The Best Year Yet. I first discovered the book about 4 years ago with my good friend Sarah. We had finished the Artists Way together and started meeting every week…

Merry Christmas & Thank You!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones! Today, of all days, hug those near and dear to you a little tighter and longer. 2015 has been an incredible year filled with love, tears, blessings, bumps, joys, and disappointment, but through it all, I had you there supporting me and that has meant more than I will ever be able to express to you. The amount of snapchat, Instagram comments, video comments, and outright love…

Bobee Paper Lanterns

Today’s blog post is on these beautiful paper lanterns from Bobee. You can find Bobee Paper Lanterns and other decorative items on Amazon. while these fun pink, grey, and white lanterns are meant for baby showers and birthday parties, I like how they add some color and fun to my work space.  Working from home and for myself, I tend to spend most of my time stationed at my desk. These lanterns make me smile whenever I look at them…
