Becoming a Kickass Girlboss + Update

Hello beautiful people!

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and are having a great start to your week. This past weekend was full of work and lots of relaxation which was definitely needed. I have been undergoing a lot of stresses in different areas of my life which has been making it hard to focus on the aspects of my life that are truly important. But, this week I am already feeling a rise in my mood and I am in a motivation kick. I have had a lot that I have been working on as far as new content, internships, and school so feeling motivated to work on it all has really been a blessing! I have been working really hard lately to build up my brand image on all my platforms which have been stressful but I am working to try and gain more readers and start a community of people who are interested in reading or following my platforms. I was thinking a lot about motivation this week and becoming the best version of myself that I can be. I know I talk A LOT about GIRLBOSS tips, but this week I wanted to touch on becoming a kickass GIRLBOSS (or BOYBOSS) and how you can live your best life today!

Find something you love & do it

You can take anything that you love to do and turn it into something big. There are so many people who take the smallest hobby and are able to turn it into a business for themselves or at least have a small business on the side. For me, I have always loved to write so blogging for all of you has truly brought me so much joy and opportunity which makes me excited to see what the future has in store. If you love cutting hair, writing or designing new styles then find that niche and put everything you have into it and maybe someday it will turn into something great!

Surround yourself with supportive friends

If you are going to get anywhere in life then having the support of your friends and family is going to make a difference. I have always had the most support coming from my friends and family which has pushed me to try and excel in many areas of my life. Surround yourself with people who will be there for you through thick and thin because, in the end, it will help you face those setbacks and move forward to greater things!

There will be barriers 

There will always be something or someone that is holding you back from achieving the greatness that you want. People are going to give your opinions that may not be what you want to hear, but you should NEVER let others opinions stop you from doing what you want. Instead of quitting when someone says or does something rude, use that barrier as a way to make yourself better and propel yourself forward!

Make clear goals 

Having goals are an essential piece because they keep your mind focused on what you are really trying to achieve. In any aspect of your life having goals makes it easy for you to track your progress of where you want to be at what time in your life. If you are crystal clear about what you want, then I believe that your mind will tune into it and BAM it’s happening!

Know your audience 

Once you have found a niche and you know exactly what you want to share with people, then focus on that specific audience who will like what you are doing. Knowing what your audience likes is key to having them even care as to what you are promoting!

Have patience 

Everything takes time. You will not see success overnight so don’t get discouraged. Something that I have had trouble with is my patience with my blog and why it’s taking so long for any traffic to come to my page. I just have to keep reminding myself that everything takes time and I can’t expect everything to just magically happen until I put in the work to do so. So don’t get discouraged because everything will work out the way that it is supposed to!

I hope this post gives everyone that little push of motivation and courage to make their dreams reality. Now, I have some exciting news to share… I AM STARTING A VLOG! I am super excited (and a little nervous) to start a vlog, but I am really pumped to share content with all of you not just through my writing but through video. I am planning out everything the next few months so that the vlog will “launch” this summer. I hope you are all as excited as I am! I hope you all have an amazing rest of your week and I can’t wait to talk to you all again real soon.

Latest Obsessions + February Goals

Hello beauties!

The weather in Michigan has been not so amazing lately but, that is not bringing a damper on my mood because we have made it to February! So far, everything has been great this month. Everything in my life seems to be moving forward in a positive direction and it shows no signs of slowing down! Last week we had the whole week off school because of horrible snowstorms and freezing temperatures so I was able to sit and relax all week, which was amazing. Last week was a time for relaxing but, I was able to get a lot organized for this blog. It is that time of the month for my latest obsessions and goals blog post, and I am so pumped to share all of my favorite things with you!

Hydro Flask Waterbottles 

I have been looking for a new replacement water bottle and I have found one that I absolutely love! It is not super clunky, it can hold a great amount of water to it, and it keeps my water in the bottle cold for hours. It is a little bit expensive but totally worth the price for a long lasting waterbottle!

Apple Airpods 

I received a pair of Airpods for Christmas and I have to say, I have fallen in love. I used to hate that anywhere I went, I had this long dangling cord getting in the way of everything, but now I don’t have to worry about that anymore! They are perfect when I go workout or when I’m on the go for classes. I am never using my old headphones again!

YOU on Netflix 

This was one of my many obsessions over January, but I am sharing it now. Oh my gosh, what a show! It hooked me from the start and I finished it within a matter of days. It’s a very twisted show about a bookstore keeper who falls in love with this aspiring writer which leads to a very strong addiction towards her, causing him to do whatever it takes for love. It is so unbelievably crazy and I would 10/10 recommend to anyone who is looking for a new show to binge on Netflix. I can’t wait for season 2!

Lavender Lattes 

If you are looking for a little spin on your typical coffee order, then you HAVE to try lavender lattes! The lavender adds a totally unique flavor which is to die for. If you know a place near you who offers this coffee style, try something new and enjoy!

Kayla Itsines BBG Workout 

This workout is a butt-kicker, but it is actually amazing. It is a 12-week workout program focusing on weight loss. I am a person who finds it hard to work out if I don’t have a solid plan to follow but this plan lays everything out very simple and doesn’t require a ton of equipment. It’s circuit training which means that I have 4 exercises that I repeatedly do in a 7-minute time limit, rest, do the second circuit and then 30 minutes of cardio! It really kicks your butt, but it is totally worth it. If you need a new routine, go check out this workout plan!

Now time for the goals:

  • Create a posting schedule for social media & Hannah Rose blog
  • Travel somewhere new
  • Go on more dates with Nick
  • Create a savings plan
  • Finish one book outside of normal class readings
  • Start meditation routine

I hope all of your February’s are off to a great start so far and I am so excited to see what this month has in store for me. There is so much more content that is in the works for all of you to read and I am so pumped to post. You are all beautiful and I hope you have an amazing rest of your week. I will talk to you all again soon!

My Latest Obsessions + July Goals

Hey there everyone!

The past couple of days I have really been struggling with motivation & inspiration to write content because it’s been so hot lately. But, I was able to finally sit down & crank out some great content that I am very excited to share with all of you very soon! I hope you all are having an amazing week & are ready to keep pushing through for the weekend. We have finally made it to July & I cannot believe that summer is literally halfway done! It doesn’t even feel real. However, a new month means new obsessions & goals to share with all of you!

Denim Skirts 

With this huge heatwave moving through Michigan I have been trying to find the perfect pieces to keep me nice and cool & denim skirts are doing the job. I have found so many cute skirts while thrifting & I am very excited to share all those looks with you!

Fruit Smoothies 

My favorite go-to drink this summer has been fruit smoothies! Not only are they good for you but, they will also keep you cool for those hot summer days. I love to either go out to Tropical Smoothie near my apartment or make my own at home!

Red Queen Series

I have just recently started this series & I am 100% hooked! The book is basically about a world divided by blood, Red or Silver, and basically follows the story of this young girl Mare who goes through many adventures of her own in this world. The style of the book is very similar to the Hunger Games (which I loved) so if you are into cool dystopian adventure books like I am, I would 10/10 recommend this book to you & I am very excited to finish the first book so I can go and read the rest of the series!

Elemis Papaya Enzymatic Exfoliant 

I shared this product on my last post for the FabFitFun Unboxing Summer 2018 & YOU GUYS this stuff is incredible! I absolutely am obsessed with this product. It naturally exfoliates your skin without any pain or irritation. I use it all the time & it has done wonders for my skin. If you are looking for a new amazing skincare product to try, I 100% recommend Elemis!

The Magnolia Journal 

I am someone who loves interior design & tips on bettering my lifestyle and this journal is a perfect read! I love reading & taking tips that I can apply to my everyday lifestyle. I love the aesthetic of the journal

Sushi Sushi Sushi

Now sushi is good every time of the year, but especially during the summertime, it is one of my all-time favorite things to eat! It is the perfect lightweight meal to help you withstand the summer heat. My favorite place to go in Grand Rapids is 1000% Maru Sushi. If you haven’t been before I totally encourage you to go try them out!

Now here are some of my July goals!

  • Go out on at least 2 adventurous dates with my boyfriend Nick
  • Try a new restaurant downtown
  • Try to go to the gym at least 4 times a week
  • Build up my social media presence
  • Organize my room (it’s in desperate need of that)
  • Sell/Donate clothes that I never wear
  • Find new areas to photograph for the blog

I hope you enjoyed reading my latest obsessions & goals for this month! I also hope that some of my goals inspire some of your own goals & help you move forward with lots of motivation and positivity for the rest of July. Have an awesome rest of your week & keep a look out for new content coming your way soon!
