“An artist is nothing without his or her obsessions, and I have mine.” ~Andres Serrano

My weekly series is back ! My must haves of the week will continue every week again. This week’s list was definitely so much fun putting it together. Here are the must haves of the week. Hope they inspire you all !

Must Have #1: Cube Appeal’s Daily Planning Notebook

My goal for 2018 has been doing everything with meaningful intention and finding things to help stay on this track is key. When my friend over at Cube Appeal sent me the Daily Planning Notebook, I knew it was meant to be in helping me experience each moment with the purest of intentions. This will continue to be a must have that will always be in my purse !

Must Have #2: Wonder Woman

I recently just watched Wonder Woman for the first time. Let me tell you, I am truly inspired from this movie. It is all about strong women and them sticking to their convictions and beliefs as well as standing up for others. All of this is a must have !

Must Have #3: San Francisco

San Francisco has continuously been a city I like, but it has in the recent months been a city that I truly have fallen in love with. The little cities within the city ae truly spectacular and unique from one another, which is one of the reasons I have fallen in love with the city of San Francisco. From North Beach to Fisherman’s Warf to Mission District and so much more. The energy is amazing, the people are great, scenery is gorgeous and all around spectacular, always a must have !

Must Have #4: Yoga Works

In my new journey of physical and mental health being a priority, yoga has become a big part of my journey and life. I have been on a hunt for a studio that I connect with and feel at home that studio is Yoga Works in Old Town Pasadena. The teachers, fellow yogis have the best energy and I connected with them right away. My yoga journey will continue to be a priority and Yoga Works will always be a must have for me.

Must Have #5: Self Care

This not a new must have for me, but one that continues to be a high priority, self care. Whether it is a facial while burning my favorite Jax Kelly candle or a yoga class, self care is a routine I continue to love and need. Always a must have !

Yes Pleases of the Week

“Sugar, Yes Please.”

My favorite time of the week is here, it is my Yes Pleases of the Week. I love being able to share with y’all my current obsessions . My hope with this weekly series is for us each to inspire one another. Here is to another week of Yes Pleases, fun and inspiration !

Yes Please #1 : Fun Hair Accessories

When I am not wearing a hat (sun or Cubs), I am wearing fun hair accessories like my Perky Pony or my floral hair clips by The Vintage Cosmetic Company. They both along with others add that extra flair for a girls day out, a night out or a fun adventure, Yes Please to all of that !

Yes Please #2: Huckleberry Everything

So I was introduced to Huckleberry when I went to Montana for my friend’s wedding four years ago. I had never heard of this fruit before primarily because it comes from Montana and surrounding areas. I tried it for the first time in the form of a shake in Plains, MT and I fell in love. I say Yes Please to it all from jam to coffee to ice cream from Sweet Peaks and everything else Huckleberry. If you come across it, I say try it and let me know what you think 🙂 (If you are in the San Diego area, Old Town has some 🙂 )

Yes Please #3: Montana Coffee Traders

I recently went to Kalispell, Montana to visit a friend and then we road tripped it back. When I arrived in Kalispell, we stopped at Montana Coffee Traders . Let me tell you, smelled amazing , looked so cute and was delicious. My iced tea and sandwich were fantastic. Next time I am in Kalispell I will definitely be stopping there. An added bonus: being able to buy some goodies for my fan, always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Odd Mom Out on Bravo (premiered on Wednesday, July 12th)

Odd Mom Out had me hooked from their season 1 trailer last year. With Season 2 now in week 2, I am still hooked and it seems to get better and better. I can’t wait to figure out what my favorite episode will be from this new season. It covers real topics, but in a way that is a great escape filled with laughs. Odd Mom Out, Yes Please.

Yes Please #5: All Things Live Love Gameday

I came in contact with Live Love Gameday when I was working on a sports and fashion piece last year. I fell in love with this brand immediately, which includes Burleyson and Blaine along with LLG. I became obsessed not just because it is made in the US via Dallas & run by a fabulous girl boss, Sydney McArthur, but because it is a combo of my two loves: sports and fashion. I continue to rock their pieces on the daily especially when supporting my Chicago Cubs. LLG will always get my Yes Please stamp of approval.

This week’s Yes Pleases were so exciting to compile together. Thanks for being patient after I was off for a bit 🙂 Stay tuned for next week’s Yes Pleases !

P.S. What is something new you have tried that you just can’t seem to get enough of ? I have never been on a road trip before and I am hooked now 🙂

 

Finding Your Passion and Sticking to It

idea-bright

We all strive to find our passions in life and making those passions happens. Finding one’s passion is the greatest feeling to find. How do we find our passion in life? A passion is something I feel is sometimes inherently inside of us throughout our lives. Passion can change depending on what stages we are at in our lives. We can have more than one thing we are passionate at a time. Now finding the passion that is yours can take some time if you don’t inherently know, which is where I am at so totally with you all.

One thing I would like to point out and mentions is that, don’t ever let anyone put you down for the passions you choose to follow in your life. Now on to some tips I have found helpful in discovering my own passions and hope they are ones that help you all as well.

Meditation is a key benefit in finding your passion because it allows you to sit with yourself and focus on the present, which leads to finding a passion or passions to follow. When there is too much noise and things going on it is hard to deciphere the passions you want to stick with in your life , which is why the focus of mediation help gets rid of the noise to be able to focus on you and what you want to do in life.

Journaling on a daily basis is an activity that allows us to get not only the good thoughts out on paper, but to release the thoughts that are holding you back from pursuing your passions. Once you write them out your mind is free to follow and focus on the things you are most passionate about.

quotes-about-passion-3

This third and final tip I have today is all about talking things out with those that know you the best: family and friends. Talking out how you want to pursue your passions or trying to figure out your passions, can give you amazing insite in how to go forward. This allows you to keep moving, pursuing and following your passions.

This is the best gift you can give yourself in pursing and following your passions in life.

I leave you with this, be true to yourself, never feel bad for following your dreams or let anyone tell you no. We can all make our passions and dreams happen !

Lots of Passion & Joy !

Time Spent with Angel Brinks

In kicking off my interview series of women entrepreneurs in the New Year, I picked Angel Brinks because she truly is inspiring in her professional and personal life. She is a strong, talented, fashion designer, red carpet fashion corespondent and entrepreneur. She does this all while being an amazing mom, which pushes her to always do more for her family. I will definitely always be channeling her perseverance, passion and drive in my own life.

She was a pleasure, inspiration and joy to interview, get to know and find out some great tips on the great trend of street denim.

angel-brinks-at-retail-location

Here is that interview:

1.When did you know you wanted to become an entrepreneur ?

After having jobs, working for other people, I knew it was only temporary. I knew I had a talent that needed to be shared with the world.  I knew it would take money and education. So I decided to major in business and minor in fashion. Ever since I was a young girl, I would watch my grandmother sew and I took a liking to it. I would start to put patches on my clothing, shred my jeans, and make something out of whatever I had. I would pretend I had my own clothing store. Growing up in the performing arts, I took a seriously liking to performance gear. My love for it all just grew. All was left to it was to master the business side of it as well as the fundamentals of making clothing.

2. What gets you to keep going in your life and business ?

I have a lot of drive and ambition. I was raised in a home where I saw my whole family get up and go to work every day. My grandfather lived till he was 80, and he went to work until his dying day. I don’t know anything different. I know I have a family to raise, and I want my children to be raised knowing they have to have drive and ambition like me. I want my children to have everything they need. I do it all for them, their education, and future.

3. Who in your life continues to inspire you ?

My children are my biggest inspiration of course. Outside of that, I would have to say women. I want to solve problems, I majored in business. Supply and demand. There is a big demand in certain things us women find no supply of. Women’s needs have to be met! I want to make it easier for women to find what they’re looking for in me, my store. I want them to feel secure, happy, confident, sexy. I am inspired by women like Beyonce, Jennifer Lopez, Michelle Obama, who all have been given this platform to show the world that as a woman, you can be smart, successful, hard working, and a great mother at the same time. All while with a smile on their face. I know as women we all go through so much, and regardless of that, these women hold their head high and do it with a smile. This shows strength and that’s very admirable to me. This all inspired me every day to work hard, and make it through all trial and tribulations.

4. What do you want your legacy to be ?

I definitely want to be a successful fashion designer, to leave a remarkable stamp in the industry, to have brought something different. A lot of designers don’t offer plus size in materials that I use. They don’t want to offer custom sizing, it’s too much work. They make things in bulk or with factory machines. I employ US workers, which obviously has costs at an all time high. But that’s ok. Not too many designers offer anything close to what we do, one on one designing for all sizes. In business you have to bring something different to the game to succeed and go further.

“Chic streetwear denim a super hot trend for for winter 2016/spring 2017! The look is extremely diverse and super practical. Here are a few of my denim staple must haves to have you looking your absolute best this season:

– Denim chokers – Chokers are a huge trend on their own right now and I can’t get enough of the denim ones.  They are so neutral, match with everything and can totally dress your outfit up or down.I love them so much I just launched my own choker line with a ton of denim selections including looks featuring rhinestones, patchwork and fraying.  Check them out here.

– Distressed and destroyed denim – This is a great way to make a casual look super edgy.

– Patchwork – Patchwork denim will turn heads as a pair of highwaisted jeans or even some knee-high boots (Nicki Minaj recently rocked a pair of my brand new patchwork boots) but because the look has so much going on, make sure you pair it with something basic and solid such as a white tee or solid color dress.

-Denim bags – I have a huge handbag collection and am notorious for always switching them out with my different outfits.Earlier this year I made myself an every day denim bag that I used a few days out the week since it went with practically everything and I was constantly getting stopped everywhere I went about the bag so I decided to start offering them on my site AngelBrinks.com and now I can barely keep them in stock. Bonus points if your denim bag has fringe which I can’t get enough of!
