Bolder LEWK for the New Year

Happy New Year!

Salty Blog Galaxy 2019 Look

I can’t believe it’s 2019! It’s been a JOURNEY in 2018. From uprooting my entire life to come to California and start a new life here to meeting Snoop Dogg at Beautycon – can I just say, uhm wow? (Watch my rewind here!)

This year, I’m not setting giant resolutions that will leave me feeling like a failure if I don’t achieve them. Instead, I’m going to set pint-sized goals that will help me get to my “final destination.” In career, family, and health I’ve always set these BIG goals because they were things I wanted to achieve, but maybe it was because of this ideal life that I saw on Instagram. Obviously, an Instagram life is not attainable, because it’s just a highlight reel. Real life is not meant to be lived through an aesthetic Instagram filter. I think I got a little caught up with that mindset in 2018.

With much self-reflection, I realized that I want to push the boundaries of my creativity. I want to create content that empowers + inspires and builds a strong community.

So here’s my three-pint sized goals for 2019:

  • Career Stay on schedule! I do have big goals for my studio, blog, and YouTube channel but the biggest thing I’ve learned in 2018 is that I am not good at staying on schedule. I always get caught up doing other things or pushing my priorities for others. While flexibility is good, I want to remember this year as part of the reason why I’m doing things at a certain time which is to get things done ON TIME. You gotta trust the process, right?
  • Family & Friends Work together! No matter my goals or where I’m at, my family & friends have always been by my side cheering me on. This is just a friendly reminder to myself that no matter the goal, we can do it if we are in it together.
  • HealthExercise 30 minutes everyday!  In 2015, I was over 200 pounds because I was working 100 hours a week and eating McDonalds everyday. I had to change my habits because I was getting very bad heartburns to the point of it disturbing my sleep. I’ve lost a lot of weight since then and my heartburns are no longer waking me up at night. This year, I want to spend 30 minutes exercising at least 5 times a day to continue being healthy.

That said, I have a special announcement on the note of “creating content that empowers + inspires!” Every month, I’ll be choosing a theme and executing styles/lewks related to those themes. If you have seen the pictures, you have already guessed January is themed: GALAXY. I’ve always been fascinated with space and the stars! For every look and style, I’ll (obvi) tell you where I got it. If you ever recreate the look, send it to and I’ll feature you in #snazziesalty where I pick inspiring looks and styles every Saturday!
