Spring has sorta, kinda sprung and in the groundhogs defense, I’m more than ready for its appearance. Cue: All the blooms and pastels and floral prints galore.Read More
I recently saw a quote on Instagram that pulled at my heartstrings. “Live passionately” was scribbled in delicate cursive. Live passionately. It struck me at a time where I must say I needed to see it the most.Read More
It’s funny how if you’re passionate about something, you’ll go after it. Hustle real hard. Full throttle. Beast mode. Whatever you call it, you’ll figure out a way to accomplish what you want. Nothing will stop you.
The other day, I had a conversation with someone close to me about blogging, social media and all the factors (there areso many) that go into making a brand, well a brand. Both of us were bouncing ideas back and forth and you could seriously cut the passion between us with a knife. Between helping each other determine content for each of our brands, I felt that passion, that spark – that same passion that got me to start Lipstick + Love. It’s the passion that drives why I am where I am. I love to write. I love to share my life (even if that makes me extremely vulnerable. A new post on putting myself out there will definitely be coming soon), the things that make me happy, the things that don’t, the foods I love, the clothes I love, honestly just everything. If I try a new makeup product, new food, learn some type of lesson, I've always been the type to share it with everyone. Now I'm sharing it with you.
Maybe I’m not fully where I want to be with my blog, but that doesn’t matter to me. What does matter is the passion I have. It’s still there. That spark can’t be stopped and it sure as hell can’t be tamed.
Whatever passions you have in your life, no matter how big or small they are – take the reigns. You want to start painting? Go grab a brush and get started. You want to start a food blog? Throw on an apron and get cooking.
That spark, it’s in all of us. Go find it.
