As we enter the holiday season, life gets a little bit busier and a lot more festive. Now is the perfect time to take stock in the everyday. What is special to you? What does celebrating look like?
Today, I’m sharing my top three tips to make every day a little special – perfect to remember during these hectic holiday days and even more important to remember when the festive season draws to a close!
I know, I know, easier said than done right? I feel like magazines everywhere push the idea that the secret to a perfect life is meditating. Not to mention the blogosphere! There’s a reason this is all over the internet – it’s true.
Now, I know we’re all busy gals and we probably can’t walk away from our families/jobs/fur babies for an entire spa day, but what a 20 minute hot shower? Or a run? If you’re like me, it’ll be a walk. Still, it’s time to clear my head and get back into a creative space if I need a pick me up. Plus endorphins!
Now, with Christmas right around the corner, it’s easy to put that on to-look-forward-to list. And definitely do! Christmas is an awesome thing to look forward to. It’s a big thing though, and when it’s over – I know it feels like forever right now and I’m such a festive season all the time girl – but when it’s over it can be a little sad. Don’t let it be!
Always have something on your calendar, or floating around in your brain, to look forward to. It can be as small as taking off your tights after a long day of business casual, but knowing that there is something special to look forward to each day will help make each day special! Or hint hint, something a little bigger, like a boudoir photo-shoot to make you feel fabulous! Christmas present anybody?
Sometimes the best gift you can give somebody is the gift of your time. Especially in this season that seems to get busier every year, take some time! Have a coffee date with your friend that you keep meaning to catch up but haven’t had time to.
The everyday memories are the ones that we remember as we move through the seasons of our lives. I know I’ve experienced that already with the kiddos – didn’t they used to be way smaller? The big things are awesome, but the small things – a hug, a heartfelt gesture – those things are priceless.
I’d love to know! There’s so much joy to be found in each day – I hope you’re soaking it all up this holiday season!
"Anne is an incredibly talented photographer, and her passion for capturing beautiful memories really shines through during her boudoir sessions. She really takes that time to make sure you're comfortable, and I honestly felt so glamorous and confident. This photo shoot was such an empowering thing to do! (and honestly...it was really fun to get all dolled up and pretend to be a supermodel for the day!) I highly recommend Anne and Bmore Boudoir."
"Working with Anne was absolutely amazing! Anne is very knowledgeable and gave wonderful advice. Even though Anne was a lot of fun and very laid back, she ensured she exuded professionalism always. I was so nervous to do a boudoir shoot and was lacking some serious confidence. Anne has a special way with her that made me feel not only comfortable, but confident and sexy! The pictures were beautiful and very tasteful. I cannot wait to work with Anne again!"
"Working with you was incredible!! You were so laid back, made me feel comfortable and beautiful in my skin. I didn't feel like I needed to cover up or hide at all. Your direction and energy was exactly what I needed to have a successful shoot. I chose YOU to do the session because I felt like you would put me at ease and we'd just have FUN during the shoot, and I was right ;) Having finished and leaving that day I felt empowered and absolutely gorgeous, like I could take on anything life threw at me haha! I was super excited to get the photos back and share them with my hunny, and he LOVED them! No complaints there <3"
