Anyone else love Harry Potter?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of my favourite characters is Hermione. Very few movies have such strong female characters as Hermione. She has a real strength to her and she doesn't care what people think of her.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And the same goes for @emmawatson, the amazing woman that played her throughout the movies. Emma is a powerhouse, fighting for womens rights globally, and has always been a huge inspiration to me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As Emma has pointed out… Strong Female Characters, Emma Watson, Don't Care, Amazing Women, Web Design, Hermione, My Favorite Things, Strength, Harry Potter

Why hello there!  You may have noticed I've been a bit MIA the last 2 weeks or so.  Turns out running a Facebook group challenge is a lot more work than I originally expected.  Doesn't help my husband had a last-minute work trip and my toddler decided 2-3 hours sleep a night is plenty for mummy!  Life certainly happened all at once that week!  It's taken me over a week to catch my breath and feel somewhat caught up again though.  But I'm back at it this week.

What big dreams are you working on?  For me I've spent some time the last couple of weeks thinking about why I'm doing what I do and what I want out of it. It's been so interesting to reflect on!  My initial thought about why I started my business is so I can stay home with my son and be there for him when he needs me but turns out there's so much more to it!  I also want to be able to inspire other women to do the same and to be able to help them achieve that through great design that books… Success Quotes, Life Quotes, What Is Odd, Attitude Is Everything, Mind Body Spirit, Starting A Business, Dream Big, Life Lessons, At Least

As an introvert Im a creature of habit. I like quiet time and being by myself. Im shy when it comes to talking to new people. I get so nervous being on camera and have always been terrified of going live. But then I started a business. Every single day I have to break out of my comfort zone in some way. To be courageous and do something scary or uncomfortable. And guess what? Even being introverted and shy I can do the hard stuff. And it gets easier. Yes even going live gets easier…
