Country road, take me home... to the place, where I belong! I'm kidding. Sorry, John Denver. Me and West Virginia are not two things that go together, but I am so excited to see my BFF and photograph more of the beautiful landscape. at Elkins, West Virginia

Thank you so much for the dream dress, @houseofdaughtry !! 🌸 at San Diego, California
Mystic tan was incredibly kind to send me this sunless tanner to try. This was my first time trying one out, and honestly, I just don't think I'm a sunless tanner kind of girl. But, it's easy to use, and surprisingly didn't leave me looking like an Oompa Loompa, so if you're a fan of these types of products, it's worth a try ☀️ at San Diego, California

I wear what I like and I don't give a f***! Shoutout to @thebagnet for the most useful purse accessory ever! at San Diego, California
@Freshbeauty delivery courtesy of @influenster of their Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash and Soy Face Cleanser! I think this is the first time I've posted about a Voxbox because this is the first time I've LOVED the test products! If you're not familiar with Influenster, it's a review network where you can read and write your own reviews on products, services, and retailers you've tried. If you're lucky, you can get selected to participate in their campaigns and receive full sized products to test for free! I've gotten to try out things from shampoo and conditioner to pasta sauce.
I think full transparency is the best policy when it comes to reviews. Yes, I am sometimes gifted or compensated for my time in trying products. That's not always the case though, and believe me, there have been many things I have tried I have not shared because I don't want to promote anything I don't actually like. If you have any questions, you can always reach out to me and I'll give you an honest answer, or you can check out more in depth reviews on all the products I've tried, including these face washes, on my Influenster account 'motleymaverick', as well as hundreds of other consumer acounts! Just to be clear, this was a completely voluntary post about Influenster. I just want anyone who is considering any product or retailer I talk about to know that I am more than willing to be genuine in my reviewals and answers.

I love this cherry blossom print dress by @houseofdaughtry who custom made it for me! 🌸
I can't say enough good things about this design. It's so comfortable and the fabric does not wrinkle, so it's perfect for when I travel! She's also letting me name this specific dress. I have one in mind, but would like to hear your suggestions before I settle on it! at San Diego, California
I haven't lived in Korea in a long time, so my family there is often concerned I'll forget my roots. When my aunts came to visit the states for the first time, they really went all out with a new hanbok for me! at San Diego, California
"Once you have mastered time, you will understand how true it is that most people overestimate what they can accomplish in a year - and underestimate what they can achieve in a decade!" -Tony Robbins
Where it started! This is from one of my very first shoots. It's crazy seeing how far you come in a decade! I get asked a lot if this is what I always wanted to do growing up. The answer is, "absolutely not". I was a weird, painfully shy, bookworm. I always pictured myself becoming an unkempt, recluse, pounding away at the keyboard, stories of melancholy while surviving on whiskey and coffee. Basically your stereotypical writer's trope. Turns out, I don't even like coffee, and life is riddled with events you can't predict and people you will meet that will influence your future in unexpected ways.
This is the second product by @NEOSTRATA that I have used. The other being their neck firming cream which I very much like! This is an eye cream that comes in a pump form, that is designed to target dark circles under the eyes. This is easily my biggest issue when it comes to skincare concerns, so I was happy to give it a try. I've been using it for a couple weeks, and have noticed that it definitely helps to de-puff my eyes. The darkness does seem to be lightening, however I don't expect to see full results for another four weeks, but I am happy with the results so far! I'll update after I finish using the product. I'll include a link for a video further explaining this product!
If you want a more detailed review of this product or others I've tried, you can me out @motleymaverick on Influenster!

If you haven't already seen America's Got Talent, Golden Buzzer act, Kodi Lee, you should. He's a young man who sang and performed an emotionally beautiful song on piano. Kodi is also both autistic and blind. I used to work as an ABA for children with autism. It was challenging work, but I have a great amount of respect for the individuals and their families' resiliency. Autism is a spectrum disorder, so every case differs, and I am always so amazed at how unique their POV is. These days, I work in a very visual world of photography, art, design, and fashion. Truthfully, I don't know what I would do if I lost my vision. I think I would be very lost, but I am so touched that in Kodi's case, he has found a way to connect to a world of people who may not ordinarily understand his, through music!
Here's a link to Kodi's @_americas.got.talent_ audition

I usually have to skip things like ice cream because of my lactose intolerance. Sometimes I'll try alternative options made from ingredients like coconut milk, but they never quite have the same creaminess or flavor. So when I had a chance to try @BeckonIceCream, a lactose-free ice cream that is still made from real milk and cream, I jumped all over it. I picked up the chocolate and chocolate chip variety at my local @WholeFoods and they were amazing! They add the lactase enzyme to their ice cream, so there is no compromising in flavor, but I can still enjoy this treat without feeling like I'm going to die two hours!

Most of my grown up life involves a lot of time spent trying out skincare products, in front of the computer, doing work, while Law and Order SVU is playing in the background. Usually, I'm corresponding with clients, designing, or doing market research, but today I did a little extra adulting, and took some time to evaluate and boost my credit score with @experian . I wish I had known to be aware of the importance of your credit score before I first started creating my business years ago. At the time, I looked into business loans, and it was explained to me that while I had no debts and never had a need for a credit card, my lack of credit history didn't make me an ideal candidate. Since then, I've taken time to build that score, and Experian is a great tool in continuing to build it. The website, www.experian.com/booostamerica, is easy to navigate and you even use your phone for convenience.! #boostamerica #experianboost #gifted #joinstatus at San Diego, California
This might be shocking to some, but I'm not a natural blonde. 😘
It takes a lot of color processing on my natural brown tresses to achieve the platinum hue I wear. This means my poor tortured hair is left with unavoidable damage and dryness. I try to refrain from shampooing my hair too much to minimize further damage, but when I do, I like using shampoo and conditioners with oils to hydrate and strengthen my strands. These @Kisscolors Argan & Macadamia shampoo and conditioner are organic and contain a high concentration of Macadamia oil and Argan oil, which is ideal for color treated and dry hair.
You can purchase these online at bejour.com/haircareor at your local beauty supply store!

This was always one of my favorite shoots.
Having been a bookworm since I was a kid, I've read an absurd number of novels, so naturally I have a great love of the library!

I look like Gollum..... 📸
I am so horrifically behind on work, I don't even want to think about it. But I did finally kick the bronchitis that has plagued me the last five weeks since I got back from Florida! at Navarre Beach, Florida
Ugh... today was such an ugly day.
Can it just be summer already? I'm ready for piña coladas and my Jimmy Buffett shirts 🦜 at San Diego, California
I wasn't planning on posting about these @livbars until next week. I got a box to try out, and I've already eaten half of them so I needed to share before there's nothing left to take pictures of.
These are organic, superfood, energy bars that are both chewy and crispy. Made from a list of ingredients that I can pronounce, by an actual nutritionist, these are so tasty! I am someone who happens to really enjoy healthy foods, but snack bar options have always been a little hit or miss with me due to texture, or compromised flavor, sometimes from ingredients and protein additives. These come in 5 flavors that are genuinely great on their own, added to yogurt or crumbled over a salad, and I really look forward to seeing them more widely distributed at grocery markets. In the meantime, you can order them at livbar.com and use code: REALFOOD10 for a 10% discount on your first order of $15 or more.
Other notes about this snack food: -Compostable wrapper -Free from: GMOs, gluten, soy, dairy, corn, and nuts -Hand made

I've been managing my expectations for GoT this season and also try to think of the show as independent from the books but really Benioff and Weiss? It's not even the ultimate events and actions of certain characters that bothers me, but the fact that the story leading up to those actions were poorly told or didn't make sense at all! It was completely unearned. Not to mention the weird focus on characters whose interactions had no emotional impact for the viewer, the absurd amount of plot armor, and seriously, WTF was the horse about!? I felt like I was watching a Michael Bay movie last night.
I just need The Winds of Winter to be released soon... @rubberduckyusa dress from @unbacioboutique at San Diego, California
