☕️It's already been a crazy morning here with my toddler and I was just about ready to throw the towel in and not do any of my business activities. Until I looked at my laptop and saw a picture of my vision board filled with all the goals I have for myself and my family. Not every day is going to be perfect and not every day I'm going to feel motivated but if I can remind myself why I'm doing what I'm doing and continue to take action, I KNOW I'll get to where I'm going; no matter how long it takes me. Don't give up on yourself just because life throws crap at you. Be obsessed and persistent with your goals. 💥
I know it's officially Autumn but I hope you'll indulge me as I recap a bit more of my LA adventures! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••
After my evening with my cousin Donnie (see a few posts back), I still had a few costume odds and ends to accomplish. Ended up with only a few hours sleep and a long 14 hour day ahead. Towards the end of the night someone suggested I stay the night at the house we were filming in. I was stubborn for awhile because, well, that's me haha. And because the 40 min drive wasn't really that bad. I ended up deciding that a million pillows and some extra sleep were worth it so I stayed the night. Rookie mistake not to bring toiletries and an extra set of clothes with me but now I know! •••••••••••••••••••••••••
After an excellent nights sleep I decided to try my luck at the Pasadena @goodwillintl for a new outfit! I didn't have much time to look after driving there, the parking lot was full and then I had to find street parking. Which is actually a funny anecdote in and of itself because I started recognising the streets, stores, etc,-this is where we had spent the night out on the street for the Rose Parade in 2015 haha! But anyways, I ran into the store, found three dresses, both dressing rooms were full and taking forever. So I just quickly threw them on over my dress and looked in the mirror and hoped for the best!
So what do you think? Is my dress a great 10 minute thrifted find or what? It even has pockets! I think I'm obsessed with orange! Thanks to my favourite stunt woman @kella.mcallister for indulging me in a little on set photo shoot! Such a talented lady! 😘
