Beaches Social Media on the Sand was literally a dream moment for me!!! It’s nice to get that pat on the back and told you’re an internet badass and to keep on doing you since it can be easy to lose yourself in this industry.
I would be lying if I didn’t admit we all get paranoid that we aren’t pretty enough in front of the camera. We don’t have enough likes! We don’t have the best equipment! We can’t spell, so will that effect our chances of landing dream opportunities (ok that one might be for me lol) But really, the list goes on!!!
So to have such a fab and glam company such as Beaches Resorts invite me to such a prestigious event?!? Ahhhh!!!! I needed that reassurance that’s for sure.
Since all my fellow boss babes have been blowing up my Instagram inbox with questions, I figured I would share the most popular ones here!!!
1. What Is Social Media On The Sand?
#SMOTS #BeachesMoms for short is an invite only social media conference for influencers, content creators, marketers, media, and blogging professionals held at Beaches Resort Turks & Caicos. A total #bossbabe event where Beaches Resorts invites incredible business insiders such as Daymond John (FUBU/Shark Tank), Rebecca Minkoff(fashion designer), Jamie Kern Lima (founder It’s Cosmetics) to spill all their secrets!!
Definitely an event for professionals! Regardless of how big you may think you are, I guarantee there will be someone twice your size sitting right next to you. Be prepared to be in awe the whole time!
2. How To Get Invited?
The question that still pops up in my inbox!! How did I get invited? Honestly, I wish I had the answer, but after experiencing #SMOTS , I think I have a little direction for those wanting to attend in the future!
We all need to keep in mind that these types of partnerships need to benefit EVERYONE! We all want to be invited on a tropical vacation, but will your brand help the Beaches brand?! Think about that one!
“Eat, Well, Look Fab, Travel Often” is my sites motto! BUT luxury travel deals is my specialty when it comes to travel! The hashtag #BoujeeOnABudget is what I’m known for and an all inclusive resort screams #BoujeeOnABudget !
Then add the fact that Beaches is a Sesame Street partner and my child is Sesame Street obsessed! Boom!
The cherry on top? Beaches is the #1 resort in the world for special needs families. IBCCES Certified baby!!! My child is high functioning autistic! I use all of those special needs services especially their Camp Sesame & after hours babysitting!
It’s safe to say Beaches and I are a match made in heaven and my readers will be intrigued with everything I share when it comes to Beaches since they live a similar lifestyle to my own family.
Can your brand offer the same return? Beaches gives you a luxury vacation with a conference day full of entrepreneur leaders giving brand changing advice. Can you give them something valuable back in return? That my friends I feel is the secret to the invite! Not likes! Not follows! Your online community and what you and your community offer the Beaches brand.
3. Was It Worth It?
Regardless of all the brand deals, sponsors, things content creators get for “free”, the truth is nothing is exactly free! Everything in life costs $$$$! You can’t just show up places, especially conferences. You have to pay for this that and the other thing and those extras all add up! I keep on getting asked if as a content creator, was this trip worth everything I put into It?
For my brand yes! As I mentioned before, luxury travel is what I specialize in on my “Travel Often” section of my site. You will never see me stay somewhere below a 4 star rating. Beaches is 100% my niche and the conference definitely sharpened this mama’s business skills!
You definitely get out what you put in when it comes to an experience like this. If your brand isn’t an exact match, I would not recommend such a trip because your readers would not want such content from you. It would be a waste of time & money! I have so much content from this week long trip that I’m trying to figure out what makes the final cut! Best decision I’ve made in a very long time was to attend #SMOTS
However, I was chatting with another boss babe and she felt the opposite. Her kids are tweens. She felt like she was leaving with a hotel review and that’s it since her kids were not interested in shooting pics at anything Sesame and would rather text via WiFi the day away instead of hitting the water slides. Long story short, this all depends on YOUR family and brand! I can only hope I get invited again next year. My daughter has a few years of that sesame obsession left!!!
4. The Other Content Creators
This was actually another very popular question! Influencers aren’t exactly known for being the nicest bunch. There are definitely mean girls and my fellow boss babes all wanted to know if this was a mean girl event. Honestly, I didn’t encounter one mean girl situation. I actually feel like a lot of people were on their best behavior and this socially awkward content creator was very thankful for that!
However, this is definitely an event for those going places in this industry. No itty bitty nobodies! This is an invite only event after all. So do expect a little ego, but that’s expected when you get a group of badass captains together at an event.
I know I was in awe the whole time when people would tell me what they contribute to on a national level. Instead of being intimated, use this to your advantage. Make friends and chat business!! We can all learn from each other.
5. Did You Feel Safe?
Another question I was frequently asked. As a world traveler, I definitely get why people may be frightened at the idea of heading to an island out of the country for a week. I swear all that drama in the DR still has people freaked out thinking every island is unsafe.
My answer however is I did feel 100% safe. I wandered the resort many times solo! Even at night to grab a midnight snack and never once was creeped out or scared. I never did leave the resort besides airport transfers, so I can’t speak about exploring the island outside of Beaches, but if you stay on property as I did, nothing to worry about!
6. Who Should You Take With You?
So many have asked if this is something to attend solo or is this for real a family affair? While you can do anything in life solo if you choose, this is a week long event families are welcome to with open arms. You will definitely be in the minority if you were to attend solo!
I do NOT attend events that you cannot bring your family. Like if it’s a day event? No big deal! Over night however, nah! I’m still a mom to a little one. Maybe I will feel differently when she’s a tween/teen and I can send her off to friends and family. That’s why #SMOTS was a dream come true. An event for content creators AND my family gets to attend?!? Score!!!
7. Would You Attend Again?
Heck yeah!!! A content creator that loves to write all things high end travel & a mother to a Sesame Street obsessed special needs child, Beaches Resort is my family’s paradise. Mom gets to network with professionals and boss babes while my hubby and kiddo get to enjoy a high end vacation that charters to special needs kids! Only other resort that goes out of the way for autistic children is Sesame Place, so it was very relaxing for us to not feel obligated to explain my daughters diagnosis over and over to staff. The staff at Beaches already know how to deal with special needs kids and are trained not be obnoxious! If only there were Beaches Resorts everywhere in the world because we felt right at home! Fingers crossed an invite to #SMOTS lands in my inbox next year!!!
Have you even been to a Beaches Resort?
As most of you know, I just walked in my front door this afternoon after spending a fabulous week in Turks & Caicos thanks to Beaches Resorts! For the past 5 years Beaches Resorts has hosted an event called “Social Media On The Sand” (SMOTS) where they invite top parent influencers to their resort for a week of sharpening business skills beachside with our families! That’s right, the awesome people at Beaches let the kids and hubby’s tag along for all the fun. Not very often brands include family too!!!
This is the 3rd year I have been blessed with a SMOTS invite and the first I was actually able to attend since there weren’t weather issues canceling the event! Yes, that really happened!!!! If you follow my travels, I swear hurricanes follow me everywhere and those hurricanes do not discriminate against SMOTS events lol.
Since all the business knowledge I picked up from incredible business minds like Jamie Kern Lima (Founder It Cosmetics) Daymond John (Shark Tank/FUBU) and Rebecca Minkoff is fresh on my mind, I figured I would share my takeaways before getting into all the why you need to go to Beaches NOW content! I’m sure all my fellow boss babes can use a tip or two and these business minds had a few fabulous ones I just need to share!!!
Don’t Let Copycats Intimidate You.
This is honestly the biggest thing I left Turks feeling better about. I may only be considered a macro-influencer, but other influencers love to copy me! People in my very own backyard don’t even hide the fact they copy everything down to what I eat, drink and say online! If I’m keeping it real with y’all it low-key makes me self conscious. Like how would other people know I was the original?! How would readers know I started that trend? Having your hard work and ideas ripped off is a horrible feeling to deal with.
Then I heard Jamie Kern Lima give a very inspirational pep talk about copycats! She created a billion dollar beauty business and had brands bigger than her steal her ideas and you know what? They eventually failed at what she was excelling at because people know when others are faking things.
The truth always comes out! My ideas and what I say are real online and will be the same real 10 years from now. I never plan on changing only growing as a person and brand! These copy cats can only copy for so long before they get burnt out and can’t keep up with the lie anymore! People will eventually see right through it all and click that unfollow button.
Long story short, all of us boss babes need to stay in our own lanes and keep on kicking ass ignoring those copycats. They will take themselves out eventually.
Numbers Do Not Matter
Long gone are the days where only youtubers with millions of subscribers are the only ones to make that cash! According to speakers from both google/YouTube and Facebook/IG, brands are looking for community these days. It’s the macro influencer time to shine!!!! Same with you micro influencers!
Have a strong community behind your blog/socials?
Share that in your pitches!!!
Likes/followers are a thing of the past and those shares/comments mean way more when it comes to cashing in and making your dream job of creating content for a living a reality!
Figure out your “secret sauce” for sharing on your insta stories! The good news is I tend to over share on my stories and I was pretty much told that I should keep on doing that! No such thing as over sharing since over half a billion people actively post to their stories daily!!! That’s right half a freaking billion since stories are an amazing tool to let your community into your life!
Blog about vacations?! Share how you find those amazing vacation deals on those stories!
Is makeup your jam?! Do your daily makeup on your stories!
People love to see the un edited version of your brand, so share it!
Not Balancing It All? You’re Normal!
One thing I have struggled with since the beginning of The Trophy WifeStyle is balancing it all! I may look like I have it all together online, but in real life? Hahahaha! If my family life is better than ever on insta stories, then the business side of my blog sucks! If I‘m pumping out bomb content 24/7, I’m probably neglecting my family more than I would like to admit! The worst part about all of this is that my business is built on my family! This is what I write about so how am I not able to balance it all and fit everything and everyone in perfectly?!?! I felt like I was failing in life since my work/family life balance is never even! What if I said this is normal and every last person feels this way!
Daymond John from Shark Tank/FUBU didn’t hide the fact that this was one of his biggest struggles. If a Shark can feel this way that has employees helping him on the daily, little ole me with zero employees feeling like I suck at balancing it all is ok.
We just have to figure out a rhythm that works for us and flow with it! We will never be 100% balanced and that’s ok and normal and we shouldn’t stress about it too much. My family doesn’t hate me and my blog is doing better than ever, so I must be doing something right! That balancing it all stress is a total time sucker we need to eliminate so we can use those extra minutes to better our families and/or businesses!

Ahhhhhh, if I had a dollar for every time someone chimed in to claim I have the dream job! I get to work in my comfy clothes. I make my own schedule. I have no boss. I get to play all day then press publish when I'm good & ready. Plus, I get to drink endless cups of the caffeinated beverage of my choice!
If you are a work at home entrepreneur like myself, I'm sure you just spit out that last sip of java you had in your mouth in complete laughter. While yes, from the outside we may appear to be living the life! I totally get this hypothesis since I signed up for this gig thinking those same exact thoughts!!! However, I think it's safe to say the only truth in the statement above is the fact I get to sip my favorite highly caffeinated tea while rockin' my early 00's Juicy Tracksuit I refuse to part with!
This my friends is where the blogtastic magic happens!!!! The home of The Trophy WifeStyle! Between this fabulous spot, I promise wayyy more fabulous in person. Black is not a fun color to photograph! My photography room & front seat of my Benz, I crank out that awesome material thousands upon thousands of you read monthly!!!
Unfortunately for me, long nights of typing out my most random of thoughts & those daily parking lot twitter sessions (If you haven't participated in a twitter party in the school parking lot have you really lived?!?!) have resulted in carpal tunnel in my left hand. Yes, I have THAT condition that I always assumed was reserved for gamers living in their parents basement. I guess us folks that are glued to our phones to get the latest and greatest stories for our sites/social channels can get things like this too. Well played blogging!!! Well freakn played!!!

As someone who has gone off the deep end when it comes to living a natural/organic lifestyle a handful of times now. Hence, the few times you may have spotted a photo of me on Insta with black hair cutesy of natural veggie dye before coming full circle and realizing moderation is key & brought back the golden locks. Your assumptions are correct when assuming most pharmaceuticals are a no-no to me. Have you ever read the labels on some of that stuff! Scares the crap out of me. Long story short, since pumping my system with things I cannot pronounce wasn't going to happen, I needed a more natural route to take for my carpal tunnel for days when my hand brace doesn't cut it.
My solution to stop pain now?
When pain is the problem, Curamin® is the answer!
I'm sure you folks like me with mild pain issues due to work, or even those of you that ache due to excersize, chasing toddlers around and doing daily household errand are wondering what exactly Curamin® is?! If an on again, off again health nut like myself approves, it's got to be good right ;-)
Curamin® is an award winning pain relief product that has provided life changing benefits for hundreds of thousands of people like myself around the world!!!! A #1 Selling Brand, that is safe, effective and non-addictive, Curamin® has been voted #1 for Pain Relief.
The Key to Curamin® is that it doesn’t just mask occasional pain, it gets to the source and stops it. The biggest selling point to me however was that this is a safe, effective, non-addictive herbal formula- different from over-the-counter pain meds and prescription drugs that can sometimes have negative side effects!!! No more scary labels and constantly wondering if you will be the next statistic.
Hello Curamin®. Goodbye Pain.
Curamin is available at fine health food stores nation wide. Here in Chautauqua County, we can head over to Herbs R-4-U on Foot Ave in Jamestown to pick up a bottle! The bottles are literally sitting on the first shelf you will see when walking into the store.
We always such a pleasant experience shopping at Herbs R-4-U! Whenever my daughter accompanies me, the store owner always gives her a free organic fruit wrap! Free snacks are always a hit with kids so Herbs R-4-U and the bank are her favorite places to stop on errand days lol.
Check out the store locator to find a retailer near you.
Once you have your daily aches and pains managed it's time for world domination and to work from home like a pro!!! Here are my tips I have for you after years of the at home entrepreneur life!
1. Get Ready For The Day
I can't tell you how easy it can be to start checking emails on your phone right from the comfort of you own bed (before you’re even fully awake). Sounds great to plunge into your day’s work without taking the time to get dressed—or leaving your bed. Unfortunately you’ll be surprised by how easy it is to get sucked into rolling over for a break as soon as you get hit with that not-so-fun assignment & find yourself still in your pajamas when your kids get off the bus that afternoon. Now that the kids are home, this means all that work that should of completed during your nap session will have to be done after bedtime when you should be getting your beauty sleep yourself! Make a conscious effort to leave your phone untouched until you’ve completed your morning routine (make the bed, wash your face, brush your teeth) and change into a tracksuit you didn’t sleep in. This will motivate you to work from your desk and get things done on time to avoid late nights trying to meet that deadline!
2. Set Boundaries
Set a precedent that your scheduled work time is only for working. Let your kids know that you are unavailable to play during this time & let those friends know that you aren’t free for impromptu chats & random lunch dates just because you work from home! I can't tell you how many times I've had to explain that I do indeed have deadlines so I can't just run off to Starbucks to chat on a whim. I promise this will really help to set boundaries between your personal and work life. Otherwise you end up feeling frustrated by the lack of work you’re getting done and left with disappointed loved ones who aren’t sure when they can connect with you.
3. Become Besties With Your Planner!
Your at home business will flourish the second you start planning things out! Don't have that type of workload yet? They say dress for the job you want, not for the job you have, so if being a 6 digit blogger is who you want to be, pump that content out regardless if you have 5 or 5,000 readers! When your work load picks up due to your hard work and dedication, creating that to-do list the night before will be how you get it all done and leave all of your clients satisfied with your killer work! Nothing feels more satisfying that seeing a To-do list with every last thing checked off!!!
Scheduling out your post and ads in your planner will become a life saving tactic when the busy, holiday season hits. It will be the only way you prevent yourself from becoming one of those god awful spam-bot site owners! Your planner will eventually never leave your side during working hours since it's the only way you make sure to get it all done and on time!
4. Take Time Off
If you’re self employed, it can feel like you’re “on the clock” 24/7, especially if you're a freelancer! The problem is that being on the clock doesn’t mean you’re getting paid for your work that very second and it can really burn you out in the long run! Make sure to take some time off. I'm not saying book a spa weekend with the girls, unless you really want to!!! But set days of the week off!!! For example, I do not work Saturdays and during slow seasons (Jan/Feb) no Sundays! I also take a half day on Fridays! If you have clients who contact you at all hours, enforcing some kind of office hours (if you can). Most moms who work at home do so because they want to spend more time with their families, so make taking time to be with your family without work distractions a priority!
Do you have any tips that help you work at home like a pro?! I would LOVE to hear them in the comment section below!
If you follow me on twitter, you know that I'm all about positivity and the law of attraction! I preach this stuff everyday! It's my way of life and has been for years. Just because I preach it and appear to be this happy, go lucky gal, yes, even I have my off days. I am human after all and just because I end up looking for the positives in even the darkest of times, I need to pull myself out of those funks as well.
I get messages often asking for advice on how to get out of a funk or how to get your mojo back. Makes me happy to know that people actually listen to the stuff I tweet since somedays all my tweets really are is a pep talk to my bad self. Reminders to help keep myself on track and after the prize.
I aspire to inspire and motivate you. So this is the list I have crafted up to help you, yes YOU get out of that funk. Makeup washes off so let's work on inner beauty. We are all in this together <3
1. Stop Comparing Yourself To People On The Internet
Before you even start to break this funk, stop with the comparing right now! Social media is a highlight reel of our lives. Never forget we are all human. We all struggle, cry, & break. Stop comparing your bad day to someone else's best day ever!
2. Jam Out To Some Tunes
Break out that playlist and listen to some up beat happy tunes! Have a few nostalgic songs that always bring you back to a special time or place?! This is the time to dance away to those tunes. Music is always good for the soul, so sing along and dance like nobody is watching!
3. Make A List Of Short Term & Long Term Goals
Life is all about intentions. All about energy. What are you attracting? What are you putting out there? What are you focusing on? Make a list of everything you want to see in your life and watch it manifest before your very own eyes! The first step in receiving abundance is asking the universe for it! Even the littlest of goals once reached can bring us so much joy and motivate us to conquer more.
4. Do Your Hair And Makeup
This might sound silly, but it really works!!! How can you be mad at the world when you look like a million bucks? So slap on that lipstick and rock that outfit, even if the only place you have to strut your hot self is in your own living room. Heck, if your looking THAT fab, take a selfie or two to remind yourself how fabulous you really are & then slay the day away.
5. Read Inspirational Quotes On The Internet
There is so much inspiration on the internet these days!!! Twitter is my favorite place to go chill when I'm feeling blue. I even created a list on twitter of all the motivational twitter accounts that I can't get enough of. When I'm feeling down, I reach for my phone and scroll away at my motivational twitter list! It's nice to be reminded that it's only a bad day, not a bad life and inspirational quotes really do the trick.
6. Sit Out In The Sun Or Hit Up A Tanning Salon
It's no secret that Vitamin D is a great mood shifter!!! There is a reason why we seem happier during the summer months than in the winter! Sunlight and specifically vitamin D have been proven to have significant impacts on our moods and even brain functioning! Vitamin D has also been proven to help people out with major depression, so it really does work wonders when you're having that off day. So if you live somewhere where the sun is shining, go outside and soak in those rays! If you're like me and living in what appears to be the arctic, hit up a tanning salon. A little uv ray time won't hurt you and might just get you out of that funk ;-)
7. Do Something Small That Will Make You Feel Productive
Do something on your to-do list that you have been neglecting. Just last week I was feeling super unmotivated and straight up burnt out so I decided to tackle my walkin closet. It was a disaster and needed some tender lovin & care. I completely reorganized it and tossed all the clothing items I knew I would never rock again into a bag to donate! Believe it or not, it did the trick and here I am a week later still living off of that high I got from accomplishing something that needed to be done! It really does feel good to get things done, even if they are something super minor that no one will notice but yourself.
8. Fix Your Relationships & Friendships
Forgiveness is hard, but it sure is freeing! You can't move forward if something you're feeling is holding you back. If an apology is due make it. Or if someone owes you one, ASK for it. Clear the air because emotional clutter is just as harmful as physical clutter to your mental well-being. You might find that your time being stuck in a funk can decrease drastically if everything is going well in your interpersonal relationships. Spread kindness and forgiveness around like confetti y'all!
Feeling at peace starts from the inside out. Starting a meditation practice, even if it is only a few minutes, every other day, is better than not meditating at all. Start small. Turn your phone off, or set a timer on it for the length you'd like to be mentally ~ away ~. Listen to instrumental music, or the birds chirping outside, or nothing at all. Let your thoughts float by like clouds. Notice them, but let them pass. Getting out of a funk is about re-gaining your confidence, taking action, and feeling at peace with your path. Meditation is going to help that, in big and small ways!
As you probably know, exercise is scientifically proven to put you in a better mood. Hello endorphins!!!! I’ve found that this is one of the best ways to pull me out of my funk. You can do a full workout at the gym, or just take a walk around the block . Is the baby napping? Perfect time to do some sit-ups, squats or hit up YouTube for a online yoga class! Anything that gets you moving should help you feel better! Maybe it's just me but nothing feels better than that burn after a killer workout!
I finally did it folks! I jumped on the word of the year bandwagon & honestly, I think I like it. Every year I would hear of people picking a single word to live their lives by. As interesting as it sounded to pick a power word to live by, I had a life long word. That word?
Everything in my life, everything I touched had to be fabulous in some way. Long story short, since I had a life word I figured I didn't need a word of the year. My life was just ment to be fabulous!
I took the days surrounding New Years to reflect on the past year and set my business goals for 2017! While sipping on a Mimosa one late afternoon after brunch it hit me. My life really has become just that, fabulous! I used the word so much every single day that it's just part of my life now & how I live! My own friends and even hubby associate the word fabulous with me. I then started to think about about the long term affects of adding new word to my life? If my life became fabulous because of a single word just imagine what else my life could be with the use of other words. What new word to pick was the most puzzling part of all though!! How does one top fabulous?
Here we are two weeks into January and my new word finally came to me last night after a good meditation session!!! That word?!
My life is already fabulous so why not make it epic as well?!? The funniest thing is I recently started to use this word over the last few month without even realizing it! My new word was in front of me this whole time. It just took me a minute to realize it. I'm going to blame that as a blonde moment. Now it's time for me to embrace epic!
Now that I finally have and epic word ;-) I needed to map out just how I will be using this word throughout the year! Being an overachiever at things I can't just have a word without a full on map on how this word will be affecting my life. I am one who hates surprises.
1.Make Yourself Epic ~ It's not enough just call yourself epic, you must be epic yourself! This year I plan on being the most epic version of myself possible. I want people to remember me and my work as not only fabulous, but totally epic in all areas!! I know I set the bar kind of high on this one lol.... we will see what happens....
2. You Can't Do Epic Shit With Basic People ~ Last year hubby & I weeded out a ton of negative people from our life's. If you didn't bring us happiness and totally drained us, you got the ax! We both each even lost a supposed "bestie" because all they did was spew hate and negativity. Leaving us basically talking crap about them to each other after seeing them. Friends are supposed to lift you up, not bring you down! Plus talking crap, even if it's all fact only attracts more of that into your life so long story short, once we gave those peeps the ax and the initial shock was gone, our lives were filled with peace and love!!! This year will be a continuation of exactly that except we are moving on to career peeps. If you're a jealous hater, user, manipulator, shit talker, bye!! We are all about having the biggest most positive circle of world dominators ever at our sides. We just don't have room for those not on the epic train for everyone. There is room for all of us at the top and we plan on doing epic shit with those people, not the selfish basic peeps.
3. Travel,Explore, Live That Epic Life You're Supposed To Live ~ I am travel obsessed!!!! If you just met me in 2016, you would of never guessed my world traveler ways since our travels weren't exactly that extravagant. I gave every excuse possible on the lack of exploration. My child, my job, the fact I bought a new car.... the list goes on. But in reality all those things were exactly that, excuses for not following my passion. So this year it's back to living the epic life I was ment to live!!!! Follow along on instagram so you don't miss out on my families epic expeditions! This year will be filled with them!
4. Now Is The Time To Do Something Epic ~ Sometimes the most epic ideas just come to you and in order for it to be that epic you must execute that idea immediately! As I mentioned about I am a total planner!!! Most of the time that's a good thing, but there have been a few instances in my life where I missed out on the epicness because I didn't jump asap. So 2017 will be the year I learn to take the chances and the potential risk. You just never know, that risk you took could be the most epic thing you have done so far in your life!
5. Make Life Epic ~ One can take this in many directions, as for me?! I'm going to be making home life Epic in 2017! It's no secret that I can't stand where I live! WNY and I don't really mix well. For one who preaches positivity 24/7 on twitter, I really need to take my own advice on this one!!! Negative thoughts only attract more negativity so no wonder why I'm miserable here. I'm attracting this hatred into my own life. Since I'm in control of my thoughts & life, 2017 will be the year I make WNY life Epic! I know a few of you are laughing thinking how?!?! But just watch me! WNY might not be my beloved FL, but it will be one epic place to live when the year comes to an end. You will see!
6. Do Something Epic Everyday ~ Wheather it's publishing an epic article, playing with an epic makeup pallette, reading a totally epic book, cooking up one epic meal or even siping on the most epic bottle of bubbly of all times, I WILL be doing something epic daily! One cannot be Epic without constantly doing Epic things!
Do you have a word of the year?!? Or maybe a word you live by?!
