It takes 10,000 hours to be considered an expert at something. You’d think I’d be at least somewhat of an expert at doing my own hair and makeup by now. Your girl ain’t got NO SKILL when it comes to either of those! I legit bribed a friend to show me how the heck I should do makeup a month ago....and I already forgot most of it. Uhhh...which brush am I supposed to use and do I dab or do the windshield wiper?! Ahhh!! Holy HECK! I’m a grown women and most 13 yr olds would say my contour looks like a poo streak on my check bones. Point is, it takes MORE than just putting in the time. It takes DELIBERATE practice. That means practicing in a way that pushes your skills. Analyzing even the smallest detail. Questioning how you could make something better. You cannot become an expert by PASSIVELY doing something. So I may never become an expert at doing my hair or make up even after a lifetime of practice, but I plan to become an expert in my field. What do you want to be exceptional at?!

Should you ELOPE?! Let me start by saying, elopement has a NEW definition these days! It does NOT mean you have to get married by Elvis in Vegas. EW! It’s the chance to let go of pressure + expectations and have the authentic wedding experience only you can dream up! It means FREEDOM on your wedding day. No silly traditions, no obligations, no drama. You make the RULES. Invite your closest friends and family or don’t. Have a white wedding dress or don’t. Go skinning dipping in the ocean after your ceremony or don’t! So if you get stressed about about feeling pressured to invite 200+ people, spending $20k plus on a single day, or hate being the center of attention, eloping may be for you friend. Create a day around YOU and your unique love. Your wedding doesn’t have to look like everyone else because YOU aren’t like everyone else. What do you imagine when you see the word elopement?
