The picture above describes my life right now. Excellent so I’m over my recovery Monday!
Major love to Zubin who took these awesome photos from Friday night! I spent time in front of the speaking throwing my hair back and forth over the course of the night. Wonderful upstairs, Sounds Like…event, with Left/Right & JWho djing. Sweet to be able to send off two friends as they leave Texas for a new chapter in life.
I’m a huge fan of Snapchat, it comes in 2nd to Instagram. I took over the Two:Tone snapchat account for this event (follow: TwoToneDtx). Disappointed that some of the snaps were lost due to me not operating my phone (could happen I completely took advantage of the sick adult beverage selection at Wit’s End) or Snapchat just could NOT maintain all that bass.
Here is the video compilation from last Friday night at Wit’s End:
Monday is my favorite day of the week because I always set myself up for the rest of the week. I have not gone out for the nightlife regularly in two weeks because I love sleeping. I need to reset and now that I’m ready to get back on a dance floor!
Here are my favorite grams from this morning’s BEST HASHTAG EVER! #motivationmonday
An excellent question! Thankful that BOTH of my parents very much kept dancing well into – well they STILL dance! Dancing is my go-to heal all instant feel good thing to do. Even if for 5 minutes a day, hoops or not, I dance. I notice I’ve been car dancing more. I just got the SoundCloud app on my phone again so I’ve been blasting awesome mixes. I have no shame in getting down at a stop light and I can FEEL people staring at me.
I have been upset with others in the past and I just have to let them go. I do make it official and let them know I can not have them in my life & it is sad. Even if they are only hurting their own self, I care so much about my friends that it eats at me. Best thing to do is just just forgive them. Everyone is their own person and I must let them go through what they need to.
I have been reading some folks posting they do not get started because they are waiting for everything to be perfect. Some are waiting to have the best camera equipment, best layout before going live with their website, the ultimate user name, all kinds of excuses. I used to NOT go to the gym because I did NOT have “nice” work out clothes. I was broke back then & I had to go to the thrift store and was SHOCKED that I found brand new work out clothes WITH THE TAG STILL ON – IN MY SIZE! I swear, the universe was like, “Girl, you going to the gym TODAY!” It surprising how much will fall into place, lessons I learned, people who helped me along the way when I just went out and did what I had to do with the little I had to start off with.
I have been back in the USA for an entire week and the whirl wind of celebrating the past week has settled and now I am feeling home sick. Yes, I miss Ecuador! I knew it would happen which is why I have planned out to keep myself busy.
Month of Yoga
I’m a MAJOR fan of instagram and would love to live on there. So I decided to join on a photo challenge sponsored by Alo Yoga and hosted by my favorite yogis: BeachYogaGirl & Kino. I posted mine for today and have been enjoying seeing everyone who is participating with the hashtag #BasicYogaMix.
Looking forward to seeing all these awesome grams during Yoga Month! This weekend in Dallas there are going to be several events as well as free yoga on Labor Day. I’m not sure where I am going to land come DFW Free Day of Yoga.
I had originally planned to get this site a new layout before I headed to South America but my designer wasn’t able to in time. Then I was in the amazons, the Ande mountains, the coast and the Galapagos Islands so I had little access to WiFi. Now I’m lookin over several designs!
I used to do that back in February and March last month which is what jump started me with learning analysts and social media management. The last month I was just flat out enjoying myself and being focus-less in paradise so now I have to get back on a schedule. Found awesome resources online FOR FREE !
Find a co-working space
I am currently working part-time for a consultant company as a freelance Director of Community for several of their accounts. This means I have NO OFFICE. Over the summer I was able to work at various internet cafes BECAUSE THEY ARE EVERYWHERE IN SOUTH AMERICA! Here in there states WiFi is every where. This means I could just work from home but I have so many different distractions. I am looking various co-working spaces as well as a using services such as mailing address and being able to network with anyone else working there.
I started to create pins for my posts this summer and saw a great deal of traffic. I personally L O A T H creating pins as I always assumed I needed to use Photoshop. I found Canva and took a quick online course to use it and now pins are quick. Heck, I am even using it to create social media covers for brands fan pages! It is so easy. Now I just need to learn more to help out for future campaigns I work on. I listen to the Social Media Examiner podcast and heard titled: Pinterest Marketing: How to Succeed on Pinterest. Now I want to learn.
