SFB Monday Motivation

Posted on: June 12, 2017

Hey Loves!

Happy Monday! It’s a new week, it’s time to get out there and take on the new day and what the week will bring. I want to start engaging with you more, and motivating and take you along my journey. Just as I continue on my path and journey, I’d like to take you along with me keeping you motivating and staying on course. Every week, we can help each other and motivate one another. No matter what your goals are, remember to change your focus, remain optimistic and stay positive. We will have our set back and failures, but remember you can alway get back on the horse and try again. Life isn’t a marathon its a sprint, and we are the ones in control no one else. I never said the journey would be easy but I did say that the journey would be worth it.

In life, we will face challenges, obstacles and hurdles. But it’s all part of the journey and experience. Remember to say “I can” instead of  “I can’t.” Because you can, no matter what anyone says, you can. Remember you will always have haters in life, let them. Everyone will have an opinion, everyone will judge, let them. Why? Because, they are just projecting their own insecurities and flaws onto you, because they don’t have your strength, will and determination. Plus, think about this, if you didn’t have any haters, you wouldn’t be doing something right…. In some way, shape or form, deep down, they are inspired by what you do, but because of their own insecurities they choose to hate. Why hate when we are all on working towards something, aren’t we? They choose to be negative instead being positive don’t give them the satisfaction. Don’t waste your time on the haters, don’t lose sight of your goals, keep the momentum going. Work hard, stay focus, and always be humble and grateful for all everything. Be thankful for this life you have and the life you have created. You only have one life, be good to it and it will be good to you. Take a deep breath, and enjoy everything that life offers. Enjoy life’s moments, don’t let a moment pass you by. Time doesn’t stand still, it just keeps going faster each passing year. So live in each moment that takes your breath away.

Lastly, trust and believe in your path. Trust and believe, you are on this journey for the right reasons. Make all the hard work count. Do everything with a passion and purpose. I guarantee you, it will all pay off and be worth it in the long run.

SFB Gets Personal: New Year, New Me: Resolutions and Goals for 2017

Posted on: December 26, 2016

Hi Loves!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends. I hope it was filled with much love, happiness and joy. The holidays for me were spent with family and friends on the West coast. It was great to see family that my husband and I hadn’t seen in quite some time. As well as, spend some quality time with our immediate family too. As I’ve mentioned before, the holidays and the time of the year, gives me all sorts of the feels, and every year I’m filled with many emotions. Mostly good ones but as I’ve said the holidays and the time of the year always gives me the feels. In just a few days, we turn the page and close the book to 2016 and welcome the new year. Although 2016 was a year filled with much success, love, new friendships, and amazing memories I’m ready to welcome 2017 and see what it has to offer. One of the new things I will add to my blog is a section where I get a little more personal with you al. Although, I feel like I get pretty personal already, I wanted all of you to get to know me a little more. So, for 2017 I will get a little more personal and share more of my life with you all. While also continuing to inspire, enlightened and empower you.

With 2017 just days away, I don’t know about you but I always like to set goals for myself for the new year. Some may refer to them as resolutions, but I like to make goals for myself. Goals that are realistic, positive and ones that will be good for me in the long run. I hope you all can join me and set some goals for yourself as well. We’re all in this together, right?! Set goals that are realistic, ones that you do for you.

 

Here are my Resolutions/Goals for 2017: 

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff
  2. Try more New Things
  3. Make more time for family and friends
  4. Explore more
  5. Make time for “Me” time
  6. Live more in the moment and never let a day pass you by
  7. Stay fit, Be active and Stay Healthy
  8. Don’t let work get the best of me and know when to step away
  9. Continue to be inspired, enlightened and empowered
  10. Continue to be Happy 🙂

Get to know me more, reasons behind the goals and resolutions: 

One of the things many don’t know, and I will admit is that I wear my heart on my shoulders. I’m human, and someone who cares and one who has a big heart. And at times, I can let me emotions get the best of me. I often let things get to me more so than they should. I tend to “sweat” (so to speak) the small stuff and let it get the best of me. But for 2017, I will try my best to not to be bothered by things so easily and to not sweat the small stuff.

Sometimes, I can get too involved in my work (because I love what I do, and feel very passionate about it) that I don’t know when to step away. For 2017, I will learn to make more time for myself, my husband, my family and friends. Work will always be there, and I will remain dedicated to my life’s passion, while also making more time for the people I love and care about. I’ll also know when to turn the phone off and step away. For 2017, I will be more conscientious to turn off and step away ( the phone and computer and from work). I’ll live more in the moment and never let anything pass me by.

As a blogger,  avid photo taker and IGer– I will admit that I have become overly obsessed in trying to get the “perfect shot.” Sometimes, I will admit I strive for perfection way too much. But I’ve also learned that it’s  ok to not be so perfect. I mean, imperfections is what makes us all unique in our own way. So, maybe I won’t have the perfect photo every time, that’s ok by me. For 2017, I will learn to love my imperfections while continuing to stay true to myself.

I’ve always lived by the rule: It’s ok to indulge one in awhile. But like many of us, I too can get carried away with that saying. But I’m turning the tables and getting back on track. I truly believe that 2017 is my year, and the year for all of us. For 2017, I will commit to staying fit, being active and healthy. We only have one life and body so we gotta treat it right, right?! So whose with me?

I like to call myself an adventurous soul, who loves learning and trying new things. I want to continue this for the new year and years to come. I don’t want to limit myself and I want to be more open to new things. So for 2017, I will continue to be open to trying and learning new things.

And lastly, although I characterize myself as a very happy and content person. I always set this goal for myself every year. There were times in my life where I wasn’t so happy and content, but I left those dark days behind me and have been so much happier ever since. I mean it’s not hard to stay happy when you have the love of your life by your side, great friends who are like family and family whose been by my side through and through. So for 2017, I’ll continue to be happy and I hope my happiness can add sunshine to your lives too!

I look forward to sharing more about myself with you all, more on beauty, fashion, lifestyle and travel, and continue to inspire, empower and enlighten you in 2017! Let’s make 2017 AMAZING!!

What are your goals/resolutions for 2017?

As always, thanks for reading, following along and supporting me in my journey!


EPIC TRUNK SHOW

Posted on: June 17, 2016

 

 

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being invited to a fun event and trunk show. I enjoyed checking out and supporting local businesses in and out of the Tri-State area. I believe in that, supporting local business, we all gotta start from somewhere and I loved seeing the various talent and creativity from all the vendors present. Be sure to check out the Epic Trunk Show which takes place each year, be on the look out for the next one coming soon!

Epic & Co. Trunk Show June 4, 2016, Shop Studios : 528 W39th Street, NYC

During my time there, I was able to do a Q & A with the creator and founder of the Epic Trunk Show. Continuing reading and see how it all started and came together.

Q. Give us a little background about you/How did the Epic and Co. get its start?

When, how, where?

A. Epic & Co. (theultimatetrunkshow.com) started in my apartment back in 2009.  At the time I had an online boutique and was looking to sell older inventory in order to buy for the upcoming season.  I was unfortunately/but fortunately unemployed at the time after being laid off during the time that the economy not doing so well.  It was perfect timing.  The event started in my apartment and literally took on a life of its on.  It became an instant success and soon after we threw our first large scale trunk show at the Dumbo Loft in December 2009 in Dumbo, Brooklyn.

Q. Who were the first vendors to start with Epic and Co.?

A. When the trunk show just began in my apartment, the brands that were apart of it were Heirport Apparel, Remember Me Retro, Elan Regime and Ally Marie.

Q. What’s behind the name for the trunk show , Epic and Co.?

A. Epic is a powerful word and how we should all live our day to day! It’s about never settling and going beyond the usual or norm. That’s what goes through my mind daily when planning the trunk show.

Q.  What inspired you to start Epic and Co.?

A. My love for talented designers and makers/creators and the enjoyment of being able to give these talented individuals a platform to showcase their collection.

Q.  Do you have any favorites, as far as vendors that join the trunk show?

A. They are all my favorite.  That’s why they are apart of Epic & Co.  We work with an overall amazing bunch of talented designers that each contribute to the overall success of the show.

Q. How do you choose the vendors to be part of the trunk show?

A. They first have to be designers or makers/creators of a product.  Their collection has to be cohesive, creative and reflect epic!

Q. How many years has the Epic and Co. Trunk show been running?

A. We are currently in our 7th year.

Q.  What goes into putting together a trunk show?

A. A lot!! LOL. It’s a lot of work. You have good days and bad days but what really goes into putting it together is resilience and determination.  You have to have tunnel vision so you can keep your eye on the prize, which is putting together a successful event for your guest, vendors and sponsors.

Q. Any advice for those who want to get their start and put together a trunk show at a size like the one last Saturday?

A. Be unique and find YOUR niche! Be prepared to learn from the process. The learning is the best
