I love watching this little girl grow. This photo was just taken in early October and she's already a completely different child now. She's running, talking, and has all the best dance moves. She has a favorite stuffed animal, favorite foods and loves to read books. She knows all of her body parts as well as a few animals and what they say.  She knows people's names and can recognize a photo of them on the wall. This child is so bright and so beautiful and there's nothing I love more than being her mom 😍

Anyone else dreaming of summertime yet? Because I am 😂  it's our first winter in Maine in the longest time and I must say I'm very much missing the sunshine and warm weather of California right about now 😭

Anyone else dreaming of summertime...

Today was a big day. Today, I ended my 19+ months of being "just" a stay-at-home mom and blogger and officially went back to work outside the home. Last month, I officially accepted a position as a Behavioral Health Professional, working with kids with behavioral issues and disabilities and today I had my first full day away from Allie. While I missed her terribly, it was so refreshing to have the opportunity to talk to and work with other adults for the first time in 2.5 years. I’m so incredibly excited for this opportunity and to start making a difference in these families’ lives. HUGE huge thank you to my husband for being the stay-at-home parent this month and another huge thank you to my sisters (@alexvic3179 and @kendalanne4), Zack’s mom (@mbartlett28) and anyone else who may be watching Allie in order to allow me to go back to work and pursue this dream. 😍

Lately, I've become obsessed with the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. My skin is so acne prone these days and this lotion dries them right up overnight. It's become one of my holy grail beauty products. Check out the blog for five more of my holy grail beauty products! {link in the bio}

Because sometimes mama needs some alone time 👌🏻😂 after a crazy busy past few days, I’m so happy to be spending this next hour in the tub, enjoying some much needed silence...well, until the munchkin wakes up from her nap and ruins it 😂 #momlife how are you de-stressing from the holidays? •

10 Things Every Girl Boss Needs To Be Successful | Why Hello Lovely

This past year, I’ve been working hard at this whole blogging/self-employment thing.  I went from having a full-time preschool job to a work from home job that I absolutely love.  It’s been such a challenge and so much work to build my little business, but its ‘s great to be able to finally be working for myself!  Along the way, I’ve  come to realize that there are things that every girl boss needs to be successful whether it’s having more patience, creating an awesome at home work space, or even just getting an extra cup of coffee to power through your work day.  Every girl boss needs these ten essentials to be the best that she can be!

1. | A GREAT WORKSPACE.

Currently I do not have my own separate office space.  I had one in our last home and I miss it SO much.  I hope to have a nice one in our next home as well.  But I do have a space dedicated specifically for my work so that I’m not trying to be productive from my bed (although I do have some ‘work from bed’ days on occasion).  It makes it so much easier to get work done with limited distractions.

2 | A MENTOR.

I have no idea what I’d do without mentors!  I’m constantly asking for help and advice on everything I do.  It’s so nice to have advice from someone who has been there, done that.  I like having the guidance as I’m going through the whole process of building my business.

3. | RESOURCES.

I have tons of articles saved on my computer.  You can really never have too may resources.  I have some on social media, blogging, entrepreneurship, taxes, monetization, how to start a small business, online businesses, etc.  I have a resource for just about anything.

4. | A RELIABLE COMPUTER.

Do you have a backup plan in case something were to happen to your computer?  If not, then you should probably think about this.  You don’t want to lose all of your work and the entire backbone of your business.

5. | COFFEE

Let’s be real here.  Owning your own business requires a lot of coffee.  No explanation needed here.

6 .| A VISION.

Having a vision for your business and where you want to end up, makes it easier for you to create the goals needed to get there.  If you know what you want the end goal to be, then it makes it easier for you to make the right choices along the way.

7. | GOALS.

I am the queen of list making and setting goals.  I love it!  Goals are a great way to break down your overall vision into “steps”  Break down your goals based on when you want them accomplished.  They could be monthly goals, quarterly, annually, etc.  They can be whatever you want!  But breaking them down makes them more manageable so that they don’t look so overwhelming.

8. | PATIENCE.

Your business wont happen all at once.  Like they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day!  It’ll take time to build your business and get it to where you want it.  Just work hard and try to be patient!  Enjoy the journey.

9. | A SUPPORT SYSTEM.

I don’t know what I’d do without my husband, friends, family, and this great online community.  It’s so amazing to be surrounded by so many people who love and support me and my dreams.

10. | A GREAT DATA PLAN.

Having a good data plan is essential for any career girl.  As someone who runs a blog and online business, I’m constantly using my phone to check emails, hold Skype meetings, networking on social media, typing up new blog posts, etc.  The list goes on and on.  My work is always with me and unfortunately, this gets to be crazy expensive some months.  I was paying for 2 GB of data a month and was constantly having to upgrade my phone plan.  There just isn’t enough data to cover everything!  That’s where Walmart Family Mobile comes in…

Walmart Family Mobile PLUS is a newly launched service with unlimited talk, text, and data, including up to 10GB of 4G LTE plus a free movie on VUDU every month, per line, for $49.88 per month.  This plan gives you everything you need at an affordable price which is why I went to my nearest Walmart location and purchased the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime.  This phone is currently only $79.92 at Walmart.  Much cheaper than most phones.

I have some days where I just never know when I’ll get home so I’m forced to work from my phone throughout the day while running errands.  Thanks to this new plan, I can work from my phone on the go without having to worry about a pricey phone bill.  Now I can answer my emails, type up new blog posts, and even host meetings when I’m away from my computer.  Everything I need to run a successful business can be found on my phone and now I can do it all without spending an arm and a leg on a great data plan.  Then, at the end of the day, I can crawl into bed to Skype with Zack or watch my free VUDU movie ($7 value) and relax.  We love using our Chromcast to stream movies from our phones to our TV.  Your VUDU movie can can be viewed via Chromcast, SmartTV, Roku, and other compatible devices, giving you multiple ways to watch your free movie each month.

Running a business is expensive enough so why pay extra for an awesome data plan?  Walmart Family mobile PLUS is the perfect plan for every girl boss!

How would 10 GB of data PLUS up your life?
