STOP LOOKING INTO OTHERS FOR WHAT CAN ONLY BE FOUND WITHIN YOU.
As I reflect on how far I’ve come since first changing my philosophy on fashion and careers in 2014 it is abundantly clear that standing on my own values is as challenging as it is rewarding. I’m building something great but I am constantly humbled by the decision to follow my heart. Building your own business can be so isolating it hurts. I am in awe of just how much I’ve accomplished and the support you’ve shown. So in the give and take of it all - I am grateful to be right here exactly where I am right now. It is so easy to get caught up in the glitz and glamour of ‘it all’ or being perfect. I'm so happy to be me and be alive.
