How To Set Your Radiant Point + Use It To Your Advantage

What’s a “radiant point”? When you google the term not a whole lot comes up, but we all have one. The secret here is to be aware of what it is, set it, and use it to help yourself!

I took a quick summer course with a rad teacher who is super keen on personal growth and understanding yourself. This is where I first heard the term “radiant point”. I’ll try to keep this as short and informative as possible but I know I’ll miss something considering I’m trying to jam 5 hours of class time into one blog post. Please don’t hesitate to get in contact with me if you have more questions, I’d love to help you understand your radiant point better.

First, let’s back track to my first question, “What is a radiant point”? When you finish this paragraph, I want you to close your eyes and think. Think of an item or a place that draws you in. Something/place that inspires you. Something/place that you simply love. This can also be a pet if you choose, but not a person. Don’t continue until you have that in mind.

Did you think of something? Here, now I’ll tell you mine. Succulents. Succulents, cacti, any green resilient plant. I find myself to attracted to these little guys. The way they can endure so much and look so beautiful. The aesthetic aspects they bring into a room. I have always been so infatuated with them! Continue reading

Small Motherhood Moments With Pink Blush + Giveaway

It doesn’t take much for your child to think that you’re the coolest person ever. In the fast paced world we live in we tend to think that we have to juggle a million and one things all while remembering to add chocolate to their milk to be a great mom. Media outlets will try to tell you that but don’t fall into the trap. Simple, oh so simple things can make your child feel loved. No need to break the bank… or your back for that matter.

I have partnered with PinkBlush to give all moms a gentle reminder to simply be present in motherhood. Pink Blush is an online boutique for women to find versatile clothing from pregnancy and on to wear in your every day life to feel like your best you.

Call me crazy but toddlers and the outdoors seem to be magnetic towards each other. I can hardly keep Tahlya inside! Pull out the stroller (or let them take on the walk like a big kid) and go on a stroll. Nothing major, have you noticed how even a five minute walk can leave that precious little one beaming?

It can be so easy to see this as a chore, or even forget about it completely, but these are the moments your little one lives for. Walking with mama outside certainly means the world to them. Throw on your running shoes and comfy dress and don’t make them wait a minute longer!

Another small motherhood moment that we so easily let slip our minds is playing. I have no shame in saying that I am not the type of mama who plays. I’ll give her all the toys and happily watch her make a ginormous mess but I don’t enjoy playing and I know I’m not alone there. It’s okay, that in no way makes you a bad mother! However, taking 15 minutes out of your day to play is HUGE for your kiddo. Especially if they don’t have siblings. I think I can manage that.😉

I have a small collection of PinkBlush pieces and I love that I feel comfortable to move around and enjoy my little all while feeling fashionable and picture ready.

Keep Good Vibes In Your Home- Niiki’s Naks

It’s never been more important to me than now being a homeowner to make sure that the vibes around me are pleasant. While the vibes you give off personally are a HUGE part of making that happen, the way you present and decorate your home can be just about as important. Funny isn’t it? That the things you fill your home with can change the vibes surrounding your home, inside and out? Crazy but so true, I have seen it proven so many times.

I have been so meticulous about what we bring into our home, I am pretty sure I am driving my husband insane! As I watched my dear friend turn her passion into a career I knew I needed to get my hands on a couple of her pieces. Niiki’s Naks is a new handmade wall hangs and dream catcher boutique and you must take a look at her work! The love she puts into each piece radiates and you can feel those amazing vibes when you are near one. I couldn’t decide if I should get one for Tahlya’s room or one for the master so I decided to not narrow that decision down.😉

Each piece is 100% handmade by Niiki and she takes direction from you all along the way. I shot a couple ideas her way and let her creative talent take over.

While she is growing her signature pieces she welcomes custom orders and will often add that design to her shop after and name it after you! How cute? “Savanna style dream catcher”, I dig it.

She created each piece with such individualistic qualities and yet there are parts that each piece share, this connects them and that is so important to me. I don’t get as technical as putting certain objects in certain placements (feng shui) but all power to you if you do! Something as simple as bringing in decor that makes you feel good can so significantly change the vibes around you. Others will notice this. Your home is your safe space, be sure to keep it that way.

Checking In- Slow And Steady Wins The Race

I’m still here in case you were wondering. If you haven’t already you really ‘ought to simply connect with me on Insta. I hardly ever neglect that space. That’s not to say this little blog has been neglected. Big plans, ideas, and love are being poured into this space. But of course, that won’t show on your end until it has all been completed. I am so looking forward to it. A new look, new adventures, lots of new things coming soonish! I hope you’re as excited as I am. 2016 is my deadline. So basically this could take until December and that’s fine, I know it will come so much faster than anyone could imagine. I should probably start Christmas shopping soon!

I wanted to update some small things that I haven’t really talked about. The house is going wonderfully. Slow and steady wins the race, that’s my motto. I am really unsure how anyone gets their new home up and beautiful right from the get-go. We started from square one, never having lived on our own until now. No furniture, no bed, no decor. Funny to think we have only been in our quaint little home a few months and it has already gone through several rough drafts. We started with a tall white table and an old suede couch with a grey cover to be the first to welcome us home. As the days went on I grew to despise the thing, that couch. The cover wouldn’t stay on and it just didn’t look right. I over compensated on the table. It took up our entire dining space by both its height and length. That beautiful white table found its way to a new home and we welcomed a gorgeous little black table with black chairs whose backs are long and I am pretty sure this table waiting its whole life to sit in that dining room. The nuisance of a couch made its way downstairs into our half finished basement (to be determined if it will make it much longer even staying at our house) and the new couch was delivered today! Beautiful slate thing it is, it has given me a vision for our living room! The tv stand should be arriving shortly and I look forward to seeing that beauty!

I have so many visions for the house. I have to remind myself, slow and steady wins the race. Rome wasn’t built in a day. I’ve deemed Pinterest a no-no at this time. No more aimlessly scrolling through for  home inspiration. No more wishing and wanting. It’s simply a tool for quick ideas on say, what pillows might look good. I am proud of Luis and I for being under 21 and home owners. And I am proud of myself for saying that and not wishing for more.

School is great, although I must admit I am getting pretty damn tired of drawing. Not my forte that’s for sure. Next semester should be fun, although I like the calm of summer semester. Not much going on, just motivated students.

As crazy as life seems to be at the same exact time it feels a bit slow. Peaceful almost even amongst the madness going on.

Slow and steady.


Semi DIY Peppa Pig Party

Tahlya’s (Semi) DIY Peppa Pig Party

Okay I’m totally BSing. I was very minimal in my DIY here thanks to the help from a couple shops and party stores…
Tahlya’s birthday was at the beginning of June but we happened to move that week. To save myself a bucket load of stress we figured she wouldn’t mind pushing her party back a few weeks.😉
I’m that crazy person who decides to through two parties in one day. Listen to my reasoning though! With all the people invited I knew that not EVERYONE would fit in our place at the same time. Continue reading
