Let's blog some sh*t!
One of the hardest things about writing on a daily basis is the constant churn of creating compelling content. There are posts that I am very proud of and there are posts that I would rather pretend never existed. I think we've all been there. (all the more reason to take a break and just live once in awhile)
I like to think that all great writing starts with my first cup of coffee. It's essential if you want me to form sentences. Like any LBD...you need the right accessories to complete the outfit. The same laws apply to your morning coffee...you need the right mug to showcase your personality.
Clearly this is my "spirit mug," would't you say? When A Cup of Quotes approached me, let's just say it didn't take me long to say "yes" to this collaboration!
This little gem was a close second. Honestly, I could scoop up the whole lot.
Amidst all the antics that ensue in my daily routine, I savor the mornings. Now I have the right AM accessory; surely a good luck charm for some killer content!

Anastasia Lupu is indeed the triple threat but the most striking feature about her is how incredibly kind and down-to-earth she is. Once you get over her supermodel looks, you realize just how whip smart she is and the likability factor goes wayyyy up.
She's a momma, a badass babe, a beauty and a business woman. Her floral company speaks to me and it's incredibly unique and custom which are two of my favorite things. The tagline: Boxed Flowers For The Well-Heeled. Where my stiletto-wearin' babes at? This one's for you!
Brittany is a trailblazer when it comes to online fashion. Don't take it from me though. She just received her 800th 5-star review on Poshmark, That's right ladies, she has built a business on selling yours and my clothing and accessories on one of the largest fashion marketplaces in existence and boy, she has a system! I've mentioned her on my Instagram before but she has literally changed my life overnight as I've been purging and cleansing my closet all summer. Interested? Read on!
All for one and one for all! In case you didn't know...there is a huge movement to band entrepreneurs together in new and exciting work environments that foster creativity, support and a giant networking pool to feed off of. Finding the right one is the tricky part of it all.
Well, look no further. Today's interviewee has launched an incredibly cool workspace geared towards females and she's showing no signs of slowing down.
It's cliché and I use the term myself but really...what is a girlboss? It's a term we've beaten to death. It all began so innocently thanks to Sophia and I think it was the start of a new era. An era where women were empowered to step up and mark their territory in the work force. In a way, we owe her so much for starting this movement and there have been many more important ones to follow.
I met Krista only recently and was immediately struck with how warm she was. Little did I know that she was the force behind Imperfect Grace which has been a social media profile I had been admiring, specifically on Instagram, for the last year. Her elegant, dainty jewelry designs are ideal for the urban momma on the go. Unique and minimalist with a touch of rock star. My kinda profile.
Melanie is the Queen of Lemonade. Her eponymous, mouth-puckering lemonade can be found amongst the shelves of specialty grocers as well as Jewel and soon, Mariano's. From a consumer standpoint, our family cannot.get.enough of this delicious beverage. Comprised of aronia berries and low on sugar, it makes for the perfect beverage for your babes and for the adults...try it with vodka or bubbles!
Jennifer is the Goddess of Faux Beauty. And you know what, I quite like the sound of that. She makes it easy for the ladies, and a few gents, to scoop up the essentials in one pit stop. Think nails, airbrush tans and blowouts. And isn't that all you really need to set the record straight and feel confident as you hit the mean streets of Chicago? I think so. Read on...
If there was such a thing as being a "Jane of all trades" than I think Jacqueline has cornered the market.

I just wrapped up my first television appearance of the year. With any luck, I will be doing more to help promote my company, Oak Street Social. TV can be exciting and an adrenaline rush but it can also be nerve-racking and stressful. Does it have to be? The answer is no!
