This past weekend I had my mom, sister, nieces and nephew staying with me. We went down to The Linq, which is a newer spot in Las Vegas. I love going there because I don’t think it’s as hectic as other parts of the strip but you still get a lot of people watching.
Yard House is my jam because they have so much variety and the Elderflower cocktail is bomb dot com. Don’t fall for the Sprinkles cupcakes trap. I was obsessed with the idea of a Cupcake ATM but I might as well have bought an edible rock.
I’ve been on the High Roller before, so if you’re thinking about going on there my only advice would be – make sure you’re cool with being that high in the air. Like really though, once you think you’re at the highest level it could possibly be, it just keeps going higher. There’s really a lack of seating for the amount of people inside, so if you’re afraid of heights and are stuck standing like I was, you’re in a bad way my friend.
This Saturday, Sandra and I are launching Wanderlust Beach. This has been a true labor of love for us both. We have been testing and creating for well over a year now. While the launch may appear small on the outside, we have experienced ups and down to get where we are today with it. We are talking products that have been created and failed so badly, logos that have come and gone, etc.
Throughout this process, I’ve learned a lot. Don’t quit when things get tough. When you hit a bump in the road, that doesn’t mean you should abandon that road. It means you need to build up your strength and keep going. Learning from my mistakes has been the best teacher.
Above all, the most important lesson I’ve learned, it’s better to start small than not at all. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve told myself I wanted to do something but had to wait until it was perfect. At one point, I had told myself that I needed to be in better physical shape before launching my own business. I mean, seriously? How do you figure?
Year after year will go by and you will accomplish nothing if you wait for the perfect moment. There is no such thing as the perfect time. You’ll always find a reason to wait. In reality, I have found myself throughout this process of forcing myself to start working on my dreams. This blog is one of those dreams.
When I first started blogging, this was strictly a beauty blog. I have no expanded into more of a lifestyle blog, a conversation of sharing my favorite things and my life with you. I find myself wanting to blog more because the topics aren’t forced.
On that note, I hope you’ll check out our website when we launch this Saturday. I’m working on a really amazing line of (can’t tell you yet!) that I’m really passionate about and feel that it will really be my focus. I’m hoping to launch it towards Christmas. I’ll keep you updated ♥
