I just learned the massive difference between asking for help and needing help. There shouldn’t be any shame in either situation. If you ask for help you are taking the first step to creating a solution. If you need help you are a bit closer to getting it once you acknowledge there is in fact a problem.
I went to high school with Nick Thiriot & a couple of the girls in this picture. I absolutely love it & had to share. This is my favorite of many gorgeous shots from this shoot.
“Where would the Queens be without the Queens who support them?” This is the question asked by a recent photo essay contest that called for highlighting the strength symbolized by women who support equality without a hint of hesitation. A group of some of my best girlfriends agreed to participate, and this is some of the fun we had in capturing it.’ -Nick Thiriot
I am reading glamour in bed & decided I had to share a tiny part of an article in here called, ‘You need a man, not a boy’ by Mindy Kaling (from The Office)
‘Men know what they want. Men own alarm clock. Men sleep on a mattress that isn’t on the floor. Men buy new shampoo instead of adding water to a nearly empty bottle of shampoo. Men make reservations. Men go in for a kiss without giving you some long preamble about how they’re thinking of kissing you. Men wear clothe have never been worn by anyone else before. Ok, maybe men aren’t exactly like this. But this is what I’ve cobbled together from the hanfdul of men I kow. The point: Men know what they want, and that is scary.’
Strong legs, a good pair of pumps, & a mind of sophistication can do wonders for any woman.
“There are women who make things better… simply by showing up. There are women who make things happen. There are women who make their way. There are women who make a difference. And women who make us smile. There are women of wit and wisdom who- through strength and courage- make it through. There are women who change the world everyday… Women like you.” -Ashley Rice
I’m mentally exhausted. One helluva week, my loves. But, I will say this. I had a very productive day at work yesterday, went out to ‘Naked Fish’ to celebrate Elana’s birthday with a handful of outstanding women, and even rescued a baby mouse before I crawled in my bed and called it a day – And I went to bed smiling. But to continue on about Monday-Wednesday and then today would be torturous for not only me (because I’m feeling a wee bit slow) but for you as well, because nobody enjoys decoding sentences when I’m speaking baileynese. Anyway, the first week of September gave me a little taste of what the next 2 months will feel like. And I think I’m ready. XOXO

Whenever I’m feeling like my creativity is running a bit dry I like to sip some tea & read magazines that have beautiful people/quotes/etc. Do you ever think about how fortunate you are that you are blessed with the ability to not only create but to see? Whenever I see pretty things I think about how grateful I am that I have my sight. It’s hard for me when I think about those who aren’t able to see the world through their very own eyes. Sometimes we forget that we are not only blessed to have homes/food etc. but we are also blessed with good health. Whenever you’re thinking you need more, more, more, maybe take a step back and look at what you already do have.
