"If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it’s lethal."
Lashes: @laylaellen at @lolalashbar ❤️
It’s easy to fall into routine and ultimately complacency. I don’t want to get stuck in the day to day, that’s why I keep putting myself in uncomfortable positions for the sake of growth and discovery. It’s unlikely someone will offer you a great opportunity or wild adventure out of nowhere you have to chase them and that means breaking out of the complacency. I’ve lined up a number of collaboration photoshoots to hone my skills, reduce the nerves of working with new photographers and hopefully, ultimately, become better at what I do so that I can pursue more opportunities. ❤️
Working with great photographers like @mikeystevensonphotos gives me the chance to learn more, experiment, and enjoy what I do.

Sorry I am a little late on this post! Last week I received a promotion at the salon, Which means I am now a level 4 stylist! I want to thank @avenueblondehairstudio and especially my favourite boss lady @jessicaisontheavenue for helping me grow as a person and build my business by having goals as a stylist!! It’s so so so important to surround yourself with people that constantly inspire you to be a better person and want you to do better in life. Keep working hard towards your goals and be nice person, the world will give back to you I promise!! .
Also I have the BEST clients anyone can ask for and I want to thank you all for trusting me with making your hair beautiful and keeping all of your secrets 😉🤣🤣💞💞 You all rock!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼 .
Do you ever hear that awful voice that reminds you of your fears? I think we all do from time to time - and I think it's no good
You're not educated enough, practiced enough, fast enough, thin enough, pretty enough, smart enough, busy enough -
E N O U G H 🙅🏼♀️
I dance with this voice from time to time and it's nothing but exhausting! The good thing is that it typically ends with me digging down deep to remind myself of the truth
You are enough. Tell that voice to take 👏🏼 a 👏🏼 hike 👏🏼 lace 'em up tighter and keep on going. This world is filled with beautiful, amazing, talented people - and you're one of them.
PSA for y'all and for me too 🙋🏼♀️
"By doing what you love, you inspire and awaken the hearts of others." 💜
You do not need to be "Perfect" to do that I do.
What you ☆NEED, is excitement! You have to want more for YOU!
You have to be ready to just be done with your excuses and ready to live your best life!
You have to care about others, and you HAVE to be kind. •°• No one wants an asshole ✌
I am looking for 2 more business partners that are excitted to get their life either back on track, or are continuing their fitness journey.
2 more people that want to inspire and help others while sharing that journey! #bemypartner#coachingoppurtunity#dowhatyoulove#inspireothers
Calling this the “trying to look over at my gym crush without being obvious” pose 😂🤷♀️ .
Day 50/66 #Gymshark66
A week or two ago I wasn’t sure if I was seeing progress at reaching my #Gymshark66 goal, but I’m sure starting to feel like myself again and man does that feel good 🤗
With the Premium Starter Kit with Desert Mist Diffuser or the DewDrop Diffuser being on sale (Normally $199.75 and on for $169 for the entire month!!!), here's a great little break down on how to use every oil in the kit throughout your day.
Feel free to share this link with anyone who's curious ([https://www.youngliving.com/blog/canada/a-fresh-start-with-the-premium-starter-kit/?fbclid=IwAR29TzNtd7iwEqIMSxt9JkcnfxHymU89CekL0dmX-WFB6C90DXI96hERE14](https://www.youngliving.com/blog/canada/a-fresh-start-with-the-premium-starter-kit/?fbclid=IwAR29TzNtd7iwEqIMSxt9JkcnfxHymU89CekL0dmX-WFB6C90DXI96hERE14)). •copy this post link to your internet browser to check out the link, or ask in the comments and I’ll send it over•
I tend to overthink things. I agonize over big decisions because I feel the need to weigh the pros and cons and am so fearful of making the wrong choice, that I get paralized to make any choice at all.
Most of the time.
But then there have been instances too where I've just said YES without thinking for more than a split second. It's these instances, when the logistics come after, that have always been the most impactful in my life because I've let myself say yes to exactly what I want with the faith that everything else would work itself out.
Here's what I'm learning - imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.
I can spend so much time trying to decide on what action to take, that I've missed ten opportunities to just do the thing and learn as I go. Because even with all that extra time to think it through, there will always be missteps along the way.
So say YES to something today. Say yes to the things that excite you even if you have no idea where to start. Say yes to something that terrifies you. Say yes to the idea you've had for the past few years.
Say yes and take the first imperfect step.
The magic and growth happen in those wobbly first steps.
What are you saying yes to today?
“Hey mommy! I was in your belly once, and I didn’t fall out. But my feet came out of your shirt.” 🤣 okay Raelynn, we’ll have that talk when the time comes but for now I’ll let you believe.... it’s days like today they make me giggle, make me feel thank full & make me oh so in love with them. That it makes all these stretch marks worth it for those notes taped to my wall that say “ I love you mom, love beau” #meltsmyheart ❤️ .
The days are long but full of funny convos & the years are short. But #motherhood is the best kind of life!
“because i could not stop for death, he kindly stopped for me.”
emily dickinson is one of the most influential poets in history and gave a lot of women (including me) the ability to find our own voices in writing. she wrote about death and her love for women in a time where that wasn’t accepted by society. as a young female poet; thank you emily. i hope we do you proud. (inspired by the amazing tv show @dickinson and the impeccably talented @haileesteinfeld) ((thank you to @politeslut who absolutely made this vision come to life & @maddyginn for the moral support when i hate needles))
Give me open roads, mountain passes and thrilling descents. I never feel more alive than when I’m on that edge between success and spectacular failure. I crave that feeling. 💚

How great is this going to look on your out door patio! So petty!
As much as you can, don’t waste energy comparing yourself to other people. There are no magic tricks beyond taking care of yourself the best you can, and no one has her act perfectly together- she probably just has better under-eye concealer. Ask her what it is! - from the art of calm by Rebecca Walsh
Project Type: One Pager+ Custom Website and Logo/Branding . @theconnectinginfluence Podcast was an exciting project for us to be a part of for many reasons. The mastermind behind this project, our client Rhonda Pickles is a trailblazer in every sense of the word. This is a beautiful example of a woman in business, working from her talents and education in a way that reflects her endearing and humorous approach to life to inspire and educate her audience on the importance of relationships and connections. Rhonda started off as a client years ago and quickly became a dear friend who trusts us completely to bring her businesses and projects to life. We were given total creative freedom to develop the logo, branding and custom website which is our favourite place to work from! .
This project is a great example of our One Pager+ Website option which is a long scroll homepage with 1-2 pages total. It gives the illusion of a full fledge website with a full top navigation bar - the menu items link to certain sections on the homepage. For a business that doesn’t require extensive inner pages, an online store or multi offerings this is a great option and also half the cost of a full custom website. .
Our Signature Interview Experience (which is included in all website packages) is one of our favourite parts of working with Rhonda! At the end of our calls it always feel like a brainstorming roadtrip full of laughs, innovation and our plan of attack for creating something new. We love how our clients bring their biggest ideas, vision and meaning to every project. .
Whether you are just starting out in business, have outgrown your do-it-yourself wix website, about to relaunch your current online store, or need workshop content developed – we’ve got you covered. We offer Boutique Style Business Services and would love to work with you on your next project - dm us or visit our website for more info.
Mornings are my happy time - my time to be slow and reflective. I picked up my 'Girl, Stop Apologizing' again. Admittedly, I couldn't bring myself to read it in the wake of leaving my job
Everytime I read Rachel's encouraging words and go get 'em ideas I felt like I'd walked away from the very thing she's written this book about
But I've reset my perspective and I'm giving the book another go. Not everyone has goals to build a multi-billion dollar business - but go get 'em if that's you! Me, I have goals that include being present with my family, having mental capacity to wake up and read my Bible, loving on my husband, and making the world a better place by help people tell their stories
We out here growing & changing 🌸 this week felt for the first time in a long like I was actually in the drivers seat of my feelings, emotions and stresses. For some this may come naturally, but this is the main reason why I made my #Gymshark66 - regaining control of my mind & body. I overcame my moments of stress instead of letting them spiral out. I lived without past mistakes haunting my every future move. I ran with my positive thoughts and emotions instead of letting a single, negative passing thought destroy it all. We’re on day 47 of 66 and I’m finally starting to notice a change. Whatever you are doing to work on yourself I hope you don’t give up & keep working at it every day (maybe harder on some days than others which is A-OK). Progress is progress & we may not see it overnight but we are making it 💕
👋 hi! I’m Amy
I am a long time hairstylist, new-ish entrepreneur, & the face behind this account.
Mixing fun drinks, planning events & connecting with people lights me up. I’m always up to hear ideas, collaborate & get creative.
For 2020 my word is ‘YES’. So far I’ve said yes to seeing a life coach - @purposefully_balanced - which was such a transformative experience & helped me uncover some underlying fears that were getting in the way of my current goals - PLEASE ask me about these goals, I’d love to chat about it☺️. My other yes was joining @uptowneolds community organization - it’s new hat for me, but I’m excited to grow community & help build Uptowne Olds back up again, cuz the town we live in is pretty awesome.
I’m a lucky gal, cuz I’ve got an amazing village backing me up! The team here at OTS is wonderful! My husband @craiglee78 offers so much to the business & to our home life. Our extended family is so supportive & always up for helping us out. & to all our glorious patrons - thank you for shopping local & being a part of our lil community!
Thanks for following! It means a lot.
