3 Instagram Accounts That Inspire!

Wednesday, January 2, 2019

A lot of people talk about the negative side of Instagram, but maybe you’re just looking in the wrong places. Do not get me wrong, I see the negatives on Instagram sometimes but I know it’s not all bad. A lot of times you may have to search for positive people and or posts. While on Instagram I find that three accounts always get me inspired when I’m just not feeling the best. So I decided to share them with you. 

Mimi Ikonn
I’ve been following Mimi for some years now on Instagram. She co-founded Luxy Hair with her sister Leyla years ago. But now she and her sister have moved on to new chapters in their lives. But anyway if you’re ever feeling down, just go to her account and you will be left feeling more positive. She is so inspiring and encouraging to others and gives you a different perspective on life you may not have known. Her words of wisdom helps you become more motivated to take on the world, it is refreshing. Yesterday she started the #mimisquatchallenge. So basically if you want to join, you’ll be doing 100 squats a day for this month. I decided to join in and these squats kicked my but, when I was finished I felt good about it! 

Denise Vasi 
Denise is someone who is a positive person while keeping it 100% real. Although I do not know her personally she seems down to earth. Her Instagram/ stories are always filled with knowledge and I constantly learn something new. I’m always trying to better myself health wise and as a person. If you ever want to change your life into something positive or taking it to the next level, check out her Instagram and website! 

René Daniella 
In the beginning I started following René because we are both natural curly hair gals! But during the past couple of years, it ended up being more than wanting hair tips. From watching her Instagram stories and following her account, I find myself wanting to take more risks and getting out of my safe zone. I also started changing some of the foods I put into my body. I realize that change is good! I also want to travel in the future. She travels a lot and it’s made me realize there’s so much in the world I want to see and experience. 

I hope you enjoyed reading my post. If you need daily motivation or today is not the best, I recommend going to these Instagram accounts! 

Happy New Year 2019!

Tuesday, January 1, 2019

For the last few years I have stopped making new year’s resolution. In my opinion it never works out, well at least for me. You make so many plans but they don’t last. So I started saying I just want to be the best version of myself. I also decided to write down goals I want to accomplish. This is something I did not think I would ever say. Making lists hasn’t really helped me in the past, but last November for the holidays it actually worked out. On a serious note, I’ve grown so much this past year and I’m ready for this fresh start. 

Last year really kicked my but and although I remained positive about things, some days it was harder. I learned that having a positive attitude and mindset can really set the tone for situations. If this post does not make sense I apologize in advance. I have so many things to say or I guess in this case write, but I don’t really know where to start. This post might be all over the place, but these are my raw thoughts and I don’t plan on editing them. 

As a blogger whether I post consistently or a few times out of the year, I put my all into writing. However for the past couple of years, I will admit the love and passion for blogging disappeared. I thought I had to confine myself to writing about one or two topics. But that is not me, I have so many interests. One of my goals is to blog full time. I’m starting to invest in my blog, because it is something I have been consistent with. It’s helped my confidence level and each year I make improvements on it. I am also working on my photos, this is one of my proudest moments as a blogger. My photos have improved so much throughout the years, but this year I’m taking it to another level. 

I have learned from the past and realized a lot and this year is going to be a great one. There are so many things I have in store and I can’t wait to accomplish them. I also added some categories last year that I’m going to start doing. I will be writing about shows and movies I enjoy watching. I will share recipes of my own and ones I find on Pinterest. I will continue my beauty and lifestyle topics and I am going to expand on those. 

I am very optimistic and my outlook has changed so much over the last couple of years. I’m going to take more risk and step out of my comfort zone. Not completely out but, you know baby steps! I hope this year brings you all joy, happiness, good health, success, love and so much positive energy. Sometimes seeing someone else being positive motivates others. So in my next post I will talk about a few people that are great for sharing positive energy. 

Happy New Year everyone and I hope you all have a wonderful day!
