You are your own permission slip!

Lifestyle

Welcome back! Today I want to talk about how important it is to be your own permission slip! If you want to do something, if you want to go somewhere and be something then go and do it! Don’t let anyone or anything stand in your way! Make that change today!Don’t hold back or change because of what you think someone expects of you or because that is what you’re inner critic is telling you! You can’t draw, you’re rubbish! Says who? Go and draw that masterpiece! You can’t write, no one will be interested in it! Think again! Go and do whatever it is that you want to do! Live your life however you want to live it!!! Just because you’re different to someone else don’t let that stop you, embrace it!

On that note I would like to share with you what I have been working on! I have started writing the odd poem just for me as a way to use some of my creativity, deal with my thoughts and emotions, making them more tangible rather than just as lots of mixed up thoughts in your head. I decided to share some on Instagram and I will share them here too. Let me know if you like them and let me know what you are doing or what you want to do.

Stronger!!

Dream Big!

Lifestyle

Today I really want to talk to you about the power of dreaming big! Don’t limit your dreams or stop yourself from doing something you really want to do! Just get out there and do it!

If you don’t know what you want then grab a pen and your journal and sit looking at each area of your life: career, home, travel, relationships etc. Have a think what I am grateful for and what do I still want to achieve.

In order to dream big you need to have a mindset for success! Read below on what to do to create your very own mindset for success:

1)Change negative to positive thoughts and throw away negative ones:

Whenever your mean girl starts to show up saying things like: I can’t do this, I’m not good enough etc. Imagine screwing up that thought as if it was a piece of paper and put it in the bin. Then replace that thought with another so I can do this, I am good enough etc. It takes time and I’m still working on it but give it a go!

2) Repeat powerful affirmations to yourself whenever you need to:

If you need ideas on what to say check out my post on the power of affirmations! Mine is I can and I will watch me!!

3) Play your power songs!

It could be absolutely anything that makes you feel good! You all know from my post on this that I love “This is Me” from the Greatest Showman! Yours could be Eye of the Tiger or Power by Little Mix. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as it makes you feel great!!

4) Guided visualisations

These are really powerful as you can create a movie in your mind of what you want to achieve! Athletes and lots of famous people are known for doing this so it must work! Why not give it a try! Simply go onto google or YouTube and lots will come up! I would recommend Melissa Ambrosini’s and Carrie Green’s. I also love motivational videos so maybe check some of those out too! I will be doing a post soon listing my favourite ones!

I hope you found some of these tips useful! Let me know what you think and what you’re going to dream big about!

Give yourself a break!!

Lifestyle

Hello, welcome back! I hope you’re all doing well! Today I want to talk about something really important, I want to let you all know that it is okay to take a break and have some time for yourself!! It doesn’t have to be go, go, go all the time!

You don’t have to say yes when someone asks you to do something and you don’t have to do everything at once!

Set some boundaries and communicate clearly what you want! Take the time you need for yourself! You can’t be there for others if you don’t!

I know you may be thinking it’s Thursday where is the Girl Power Boss post. Well I have decided to be the example and take a break from that feature for this month and create more space for other posts this month. I’m going on holiday later this month and I need to take some time to chill! So I’m being more relaxed about what I’m posting and spending more time reading, journaling, going on walks and focusing on me!

Girl Power Boss posts will return in August! I have some awesome ladies lined up for you!

If you think you would make a great Girl Power Boss then please email girlpowerdesignblog@gmail.com.

Girl Power Design Book Club Review -June:

Lifestyle

Welcome back! Today I have a very exciting post! I’m going to talk about the books we have been reading for this month’s book club! Please comment below with your thoughts and comments on the books I would love to hear from you.

She Means Business by Carrie Green:

This is a book for women who are entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to achieve their dreams. Carrie shares her business and mindset tips which helped get her to exactly where she wanted to be.

Girl Power Design Review:

I loved this book! I thought it was really inspirational and insightful! Carrie motivates you to start living the life you want and to dream big! She explains how she got started from doing a law degree, to having a phone unlocking business before creating the amazing Female Entrepreneur Association! She gives you small achievable tasks to create your own mindset for success! It’s not all about creating your own business you could use the tips even if you’re not self employed.

How many stars: ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Earth Is Hiring by Peta Kelly

Peta looks at the new way of doing things the millennial way in this book. She looks at what we can do to make the world a better place and use our creative talents to do so.

Girl Power Design Review:

I have to be honest I was a little bit disappointed by this book! It started off really well but I found myself losing interest as the book went on. There are some really important topics discussed in this book such as how we can do more for the planet, how important Mother Earth is, guidance for entrepreneurs, money mindset and creating your own scripts for success! I feel like too much was tried to put into one book and I would have liked some of the chapters to have been shorter or more direct as I found myself getting a bit lost in what was said. This is just my opinion and it may just be that this wasn’t the right time for me to read it. I have heard Peta Kelly speak on few podcasts and she was very inspiring. If you have read this book I would love to hear your opinion.

How many stars:⭐️⭐️⭐️

Light Is The New Black by Rebecca Campbell

This is probably one of the most spiritual books on the list. It looks at how you should follow and listen to your soul callings and do what lights you up!

Girl Power Design Review:

I loved this book and I know many of you did too! It gave me goosebumps and made me cry! The message really hit home! Do what you love to do, what lights you up and by doing this alone you will help raise the vibrations of the earth. This is definitely for the more spiritual women out there if you’re not very spiritual and you think everything spiritual is very woo woo, then this may not be for you. I thought it was amazing though and couldn’t put it down! Rebecca puts lots of mantras, poems and questions we can ask ourselves throughout this book which really helps to keep you engaged.

How many stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Little Black Book by Otega Uwagba

This book is a toolkit for working women everywhere with practical advice tips and much more.

Girl Power Design Review:

This was another book which was a little bit disappointing! I heard lots of good things about it, while it is okay and has some useful points it didn’t blow me away. It has some good tips for women in business but it was a little bit too basic for me. If you’re new to the work place this could be a good one for you.

How many stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gayle Honeyman

This is the only fictional book on the list this month. It looks at the life of Eleanor Oliphant who leads a very simple life and looks at the struggles she faces with mental health problems and connecting with the people around her. It shows is the importance of taking the time to look after ourselves.

Girl Power Design Review:

This was a brilliant book which I couldn’t put down! It took me a while to settle into the story and connect with the main character but then I was away and needed to know more. Would definitely recommend this book!

How many stars: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Let me know your thoughts on these books! I hope you have enjoyed reading them! I think overall they have been really good and there was a nice mix of topics. Let me know if you have any suggestions for July’s book club!

Girl Power Boss: Leah Roset

Lifestyle

Hello, welcome back! I’m so excited to share with you another Girl Power Boss post! I don’t know about you but I find these posts so inspiring! Okay let’s dig in and find out more about the lovely Leah!

Please tell me a little about you:

I live in Plymouth, Minnesota. I studied psychology and sociology of law, crime, and deviance at the University of Minnesota. I started as an art major, and switched to a minor, as my dad had told me I wouldn’t make any money in art. I am working as an Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services worker at the moment, and have held similar positions since graduation (4 years ago). I have continued creating art, and even selling here and there. However, now there is more momentum behind my side hustle – my boyfriend and I met and joined forces to create SpeeLee Studios (SpeeLeeStudios.com). So now he is trying to get more photography gigs and I am trying to make/sell paintings. We sometimes work in tandem as well, collaborating on these projects.

Please tell me what a day in your life looks like?

I am an adult rehabilitative mental health services worker. When I am less swamped at work, I wake up early, stretch, do yoga, make blended matcha green tea, and get ready at a relaxed pace. I may write about my dreams, stream of consciousness, and/or intentions for the day, or work on a sketch. When I am swamped at work, I start writing progress notes, assessments, making phone calls to confirm appointments with inconsistent clients, etc. Oh and, my two dogs are a big part of my mornings as well! feeding, taking them outside, etc. Then I meet with 2-3 clients (they need to have a Severe and Persistent Mental Illness diagnosis). We focus on skill building, and work on goals in their individual treatment plans. My meetings can range from productive and enjoyable to chaotic and requiring some major self-care afterward. When I get home, my boyfriend or I make dinner. We sometimes paint in the garage, and I work on drawings when I can. Sometimes I go to the gym as well, and other times we watch some television.

What advice would you have for women reading this who are not happy with what they are doing?

There are so so many things I could say and directions one could take to approach being unhappy with what they’re doing. I would use motivational interviewing to prompt her to assess why she is still doing it – pros and cons list, for example. I would investigate what her dream job is, and why she isn’t pursuing it. I would use motivational interviewing to prompt her to assess why it can’t be her reality. I would tell her that not one way fits all. I would not tell her to do what I think she should do. It is all about guiding someone in coming up with those reasons, motivations, and goals themselves. Sometimes we make a lot of grey area for things that are more black and white. Sometimes we don’t see our dreams as a reality and self-sabotage. But truthfully, if you zero in on what you want, make no excuses, and go for it, it will work out! You may even be led down a different path than originally intended, and end up finding your true passion somewhere unexpected 🙂

What hobbies or practices do you do to stay relaxed and creative?

I draw, pain and listen to music. I use self-care strategies, such as taking an epsom salt bath or getting a massage. I pray. I stretch. I sometimes run, and I sometimes tune out watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix. Also, some people think I’m crazy, but cleaning can really get me into a flow state as well. Putting on some music, cleaning, and then cooking are some of my favorite things to do in sequence, like I’m preparing the area for something. Being intentional. Making an event of something simple to make it more fun and enjoyable. Who wants to cook around dirty dishes and countertops? Ick.

What project are you working on at the moment?

Right now, I have two commissioned acrylic pour paintings to create. I also am working on a drawing of my dog’s head on a cow’s body, because she makes a loud “mooing” noise at times 🙂. I have two unfinished paintings I need to tackle as well.

How to get in touch

I am always looking for ways to promote what we do at Speelee Studios (www.speeleestudios.com), so if you are interested you can check out the website (needs an update) or Facebook page, and/or find me at leahhjoo on Instagram.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us Leah! I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did.

Girl Power Boss: Charlie Goodman

Lifestyle

Welcome back! It’s Thursday so it’s time for another Girl Power Boss post!!! Today’s post is with the lovely Charlie Goodman! Okay let’s get started!

Please tell me a little about what you are doing now and how you got there?

Charlie: I work full time and in any spare time I have hustle with Isagenix on the side. After my third little girl Rosey sunshine, I had weight to loose which I couldn’t shift, but more than that I was completely lost. I had no idea who I was anymore and felt like I was on auto pilot. I didn’t smile as much, didn’t enjoy things as much and was missing out. I am a big social person, I have always had lots of friends and done my own thing, but I got caught up with doing what I thought you did and who you were supposed to be when you became a wife and got married, I couldn’t remember who Charlie was.

I was introduced to Isagenix by a friend of mine as a weight-loss solution but it became more than that as I wanted what she had, passion, energy a zest for life and most importantly an actual life outside of her family. Everything I used to be. So I joined up and it has been literally life changing! I’m back and I’m not listening to those people who tore me down anymore.

Now I’m doing the same for other women by giving them a chance to get back to them and to start enjoying life again.

Please tell me what a day in your life looks like?

Charlie: My day is hectic, haha! A mess pretty much, I am so unorganised. I pretend I am not but I am. My husband and I are up in the morning getting the kiddies ready for school and daycare. It’s always a race, as we seem to be running behind. My kids are dropped off at school and daycare by 7:00/7:30 am and I’m at work by 7:30/8:00 then its pretty much “work work work work work” and in amongst it I take what ever time I can get, to read up on any interesting posts they have in chardonnay and slay, my business chat group and the isagenix website.  We’re home by 5:30/6:00 pm dinner, bath and bed for kiddies and me on some nights. Then it’s time for bedroom tag, till about 8:00 pm trying to get the monkeys to stay in their bed and go to sleep then it’s me time. This is where I do what ever household thing I fancy, cos I don’t do all of them mainly washing up, tidying and getting ready for the next day. Then it’s time for a cup of tea or a glass of wine and I’m on my phone chatting to others about work, following up leads, chatting to friends and family and designing new posts. I’m a multi tasker at home I have to be.

I don’t have a planned scheduled because that’s not me, I wouldn’t follow it. I work whenever I have time.

What advice would you have for women reading this who are not happy with what they are doing?

Charlie: My advice for anyone who is not happy in their life is to put yourself first sometimes, see how you feel and don’t apologise for it to anyone you deserve it. I make crazy decisions all of the time because I’m emotionally fuelled. I’ve learnt that my best decisions come from when I’m thinking about me and coming from a place of love and respect for myself.

What hobbies or practices do you do to stay relaxed and creative?

Charlie: My relaxing time and stress free time is being with girlfriends, being social with my friends or my sister and my mum. That’s how I relax and how I get back to being me. This could be a coffee catch up, a dinner or wild night out but that’s how I get into my happy place and then I feel like I could take on the world, my energy is buzzing and my creativity runs wild!

What project are you working on at the moment?

Charlie: Currently I am working on building my business slowly but surely. I know there are lots of women out there who were like me and I’m here to help. It’s not about being skinny but at the end of the day no matter what people say how you look impacts how you feel about yourself and that in turn affects everything. I was miserable, lost and a lot of that was because of my weight. Unfortunately I got into a vicious circle of thinking I was fat, wanting to comfort eat but then growing bigger.

I lost the weight that made me unhappy. I’m not a size 8, I’m a 12 but I’m happy. I love my body and I love me.

Its all about your perfect you, the one where you love how you look, and how you look is your choice, no one else’s because it all starts with self love!

Empowered is the new skinny…. That’s my project!

Girl Power Boss: Deanna Leduc

Lifestyle

Welcome back! I’m so excited for today’s post! If you haven’t checked last week’s then make sure you check it out!! Okay let’s get on with today’s interview with Deanna Leduc!

Please tell me a little about what you are doing now and how you got there?

Deanna: The truth is, I am doing a few things right now. I am an author, freelance writer and life coach. I started off writing when I was about 12, by the time I was 15 I knew that I wanted to be an author and on my 18th birthday I sent out half a dozen manuscripts to different publishers. Within two months I had a contract with one of them!

After that I was hooked. So I kept writing and submitting, and I’ve been very lucky. I’ve published 7 books, 4 of which have made it to the best sellers list!

However being an author doesn’t always pay the bills, so I took up freelance writing. I’ve done everything from Amish Romance, to interviews with pornstars. My freelancing varies from reviews, to beta reading and editing. Personally, I absolutely love beta reading for authors because it allows me to help that author  elevate they’re working progress, something they’re passionate about.

Over the years, I started to get people asking me a lot of questions about writing, publishing, and promoting their books. And that’s kind of how the life coach thing happened. It started off with people hiring me to help them with their books, publishing goals and then it slowly turned into people asking for my advice on other things as well.

Please tell me what a day in your life looks like?

Deanna: My days really depend on what kind of work I have ahead of me. If I have coaching clients then I focus on them but if I don’t have any clients then I focus on my writing.

What advice would you have for women reading this who are not happy with what they are doing?

Deanna: My biggest piece of advice would be to take a risk.  I’m a huge risk taker, I get an idea and I roll with it. It doesn’t always pay off but I always learn something from it.

I would also say connect with people who have the same goals as you. Positive common like-minded people who will help you stay on track towards a life that will make you happy.

In order to do that you need to figure out what you want. Grab a pen and a piece of paper and write down your goals. I’m a huge believer in goals, once you start  accomplishing things then you become addicted to this feeling of pride that you get when you achieve something.

What hobbies or practices do you do to stay relaxed and creative?

Deanna: I love to work with my hands. I also love working out, baking, reading, and basically anything that will leave me physically exhausted.

I also have a blog- because you know, my life isn’t surrounded with enough writing! My blog doesn’t always enough time spent on it but I’m getting there by scheduling posts that I’m passionate about.

What project are you working on at the moment?

Deanna: Right now, I’m finishing up the last three chapters of a female orientated, personal Improvement book. I’ve always wanted to do one and I’ve done lots of research for it. I’m trying to make sure it is practical, not like everything out there, and helpful. So it’s been a lot of long nights, but I’m getting really excited to see it coming together!

I’ve also just recently created a Facebook group that has been a passion project of mine, so it’s taking a lot of my time, which I’m loving! For any women out there, you should check us out (because what would an interview be without at least one shameless plug?) we have a lot of chances to promote your business, but it’s about a lot more than that. It’s about helping build the life you want, and helping to keep you motivated as well as challenged, and thinking about where you want to be in six months or a year.

What are you grateful for?

Lifestyle

Hello, thank you so much for joining me today in this impromptu post!! I just felt like I needed to write!

Have you ever had one of those moments, where you’re fed up, you’re not feeling well and all the little things like noises outside become really irritating?! The zen me, says let it go, there’s nothing you can do and you’re not making yourself feel better by being grumpy! However that is easier said than done especially when hormones come into play. I think it’s important to take the time to acknowledge how you are really feeling and redirect your attention onto something else, in this case a blog post! Even if you have to get your anger out first!

Okay let’s get on with it, my rant is over! #getthingsoffyourchest!

Today I want to talk about gratitude and journaling! In modern day life we often get swept away with planning for the future and reminiscing over the past but it is important that to take the time to stop and reflect on what we have right now!

Quick exercise for you:

Take a few deep breaths and think about what you have to be grateful for right now! It doesn’t have to be big! Is it your friends, family, health, job, the sunshine, a hobby etc? After you have done that try and think of 2 more things, then write your all 3 things down preferably in your journal.

Importance of dealing with emotions:

Journaling helps you to be positive not only in the moment but, also later on down the line, when you pick up your journal for inspiration and you will remember all of the things you have to be grateful for. Remember positive thoughts lead to positive realities!

You don’t have to be perfect with being grateful or journaling, just practice it as often as you can! You will have moments where you don’t want to journal, where you’re too tired, too stressed, too angry, too grumpy or too frustrated and that is okay! Emotions are normal parts of human behaviour! We need to acknowledge our feelings otherwise they will take over and we will begin to dwell on them. Thoughts turn into why am I grumpy? I’m always grumpy, I’m no good, I can never do journaling and I can’t be grateful because I’m grumpy etc! This is not good for anyone especially not for you!

You need to accept okay I’m feeling grumpy and check in with why you might be feeling that way but be careful not to overanalyse! Over thinking is something I do a lot! I like to think things through properly, but why is my favourite question! Sometimes though it’s not about why but rather what can I do about it? How can I look after myself? Don’t rely on anyone else to stop you from feeling grumpy as it won’t work! Yes it is important to talk and people can cheer you up but you need the recognise the importance of being your own best friend! As you are always stuck with you, there is no one else so make sure you are friends! Take time to connect with yourself, check out my time for tea post if you are struggling with ideas for what to do!

Ideas of what to put into your journal:

I try to journal things like positive quotes that make me smile, affirmations, goals, song lyrics, gratitude lists and success lists.

You can even use your journal as a tool for using the law of attraction to your advantage but more on this in a separate post!

Your journal is personal to you and can be used for anything you want! It doesn’t have to be all writing, you could stick in photographs, drawings and cut outs in there too. Make it yours and reach for it whenever you need to. I find it to be a great stress buster! It clears your thoughts and enables you to think properly. Once you have gotten something down on paper there is no need for you to carry it around with you as well, as you can always turn to that particular page to remember whatever it was that you were trying to remember!

What about you do you journal?

What do you write about if you do?

Please share any tips or tricks you have with us!

Girl Power Boss: Lisa Gust

Lifestyle

Welcome back to Girl Power Bosses! I hope you enjoyed last week’s post. If you haven’t read it then please check it out!

Okay let’s get started.

A little about Lisa, what she is doing and how she got there:

Lisa is a copywriter and translator. Her journey started when she was living in London as an Executive Assistant. She thought she had her dream job, it was full of all the things she loved, organising, planning and arranging events. However over time she began to realise that it wasn’t right for her. She was fed up of 9 to 5 and wanted a change.

So one day she decided to do something pretty drastic and handed in her notice and move to Brighton with only a few months savings to live off. Lisa had no idea about what she wanted to do and then the idea came to her. She decided to apply for part time jobs while she built up a copywriting and interpreting business. However that didn’t seem to work either. Lisa applied for over 100 jobs but no one seemed to hire her and so she decided to concentrate solely on her business. This worked and over time she slowly built up her business.

A day in the life of Lisa:

Lisa’s days are very varied. She is not a morning person and so often wakes up about 8, scrolls through her social media, has her breakfast and then gets ready then work. She then starts working on any projects she has, she will spend time marketing her business and looking for future clients. Lisa is in her first year of business and so said that she is still building her business up and spends time working in the evenings and weekends. However this is a job with more flexibility than her 9 to 5 and she enjoys it!

Advice for women who are fed up of what they are doing and are in desperate need of a change:

Lisa said that her advice would be that there is always a way out. Although she admitted that she would necessarily recommend quitting job without knowing what to do. She said to spend time looking at what you are passionate about and trying to do something related to that. Lisa it may be scary but you need to jump.

Lisa’s hobbies:

Lisa loves reading, mainly crime novels and Harry Potter but that Alice in Wonderland was her favourite book of all. Lisa also loves to travel and the end of June, she is going to go on a world trip starting in Egypt. How exciting!

Takeaway tip:

Lisa said that her advice would be to have the confidence to fulfil your dreams! That it may be difficult at times but that it is always worth it in the end. She also said encourage other women around you to do the same!

Where can we find out more:

Check out Lisa’s website and blog at http://www.lisagust.co.uk

Well I don’t know about you but I feel really inspired by that post! So let’s go out there and follow those dreams. Let’s lift each other up instead of dragging each other down. Remember my affirmation from my other post we can and we will watch us!!!

On that note I wanted to introduce to our exciting new membership. I will be doing a more detailed post on this soon. Please check out: https://girlpowerdesign.blog/girl-power-membership/
