I am not the one to “promote” my birthday or “brag” about the gifts that I receive. But the older I get the more I forget lol #mombrain and I thought I wanted to remember these days, especially with my child. So about a month ago was my birthday and I vlogged a bit about it!
And now a month later my husbands birthday comes along and I got to surprise this man once again for his special “over the hill” birthday! Surprised him twice within 24hours!! Have the video to prove it.
Happy Birthday to the love of my life!
I get to call this man my husband! Happy Birthday Love!
Sure, you make fun of me (all the time). Your texts mostly always have a joke in them and you laugh at your own jokes. Even though we don’t have the same sense of humor all the time, it is a part of your charm and honestly, it all makes you…YOU. Love that you keep the light and laughter in my world. You have also created a small comedian in Everest. I love you Sunny – thank you for being you. Thank you for being a father worthy to be called Daddy. Thank you for being a husband that is faithful, true, loving and kind. Happy, happiest 40th! I’m so excited to celebrate with you this weekend!!
If you want to know what I am up to now-a-days, I am hustling trying to figure out my small business. Every single day thats what I think about and how I want to see it grow and become something bigger than I ever imagined.
To do so, you need to know a lot. Right? Or have that business mind set. I have a lot to learn and not enough time to sit down and take classes (although I do have some classes I signed up for!) Living in LA you are in your car for at least half the day and I didnt want to waste that time so I have been making the most of it by listening to business podcasts! For the past 4 months I have been through many, subscribed to many and deleted maybe half. Most business podcasts can make feel like its impossible, or even worse…it can make you sleepy! And you dont want to be sleepy when driving.
Today I introduce you to 5 of my favorite small business podcasts. They are all the ones that I look forward to and have been a lot of help building up my Etsy shop from ground up. Hope you enjoy my video~!

Social Media Marketing Podcast
Never forget the social media side of things. As much as you want to ignore it the day and age we live in, social media is a great way to drive customers to your site/shop/business. Gives great tips from experts.
How I Built This
This NPR podcast is something to listen to when you are feeling like you want to give up. Hearing the success stories on this businesses that we all know can inspire you and maybe even think differently. Anyone can start a business and almost anyone can build it to a million dollar one. Such an inspiring podcast!
If you are a small business owner or are thinking of starting one, congratulations! You have already made the first step that many people are afraid to do!! Hope these podcasts help you in some way!

Time is flying by so fast! I cannot believe that I am already at 34 weeks and prepping for the baby to come. I have a list of things to do, but one of them is making the Raspberry Leaf Tea and prepping my uterus!!
Here is the simple recipe that I have been enjoying:
Fresh ginger (to help with digestion)
2 tablespoons mint leaf (also beneficial for digestion, not to mention delicious!)
2 tablespoons chamomile (to soothe frazzled nerves and encourage restful sleep)
For a single cup:
Allow to infuse for at least 10 minutes. Remove tea leaves and sweeten with honey, maple syrup, etc. if desired
If you don’t have a tea ball, simply add the tea leaves to boiling water and then strain with a mesh strainer .
To make a large batch, boil 8 cups of water and add 1/2 cup tea leaves. Steep for at least 10 minutes to overnight, then strain and place in the fridge to sip on over the next few days.
A lot of my friends did give it a go but I didn’t get to try this look during the summer. So I thought, why not try it for fall.
I have made the colors are little more deeper fit for the fall weather, and as you know feel free to change lip , cheek, eye base color. Every beauty/fashion video should be an inspiration and you take it to make it your own! Hope you give it a try and let me know if you liked it or not in the comments below! eeek!
WOW! My friends are the bestest of bestest’s! I am truly blessed to be called their friends! (tears)
