Mother’s Day is coming up and I’m trying to be a good daughter by planning a lil trip for my fam this weekend! Actually, Jackelyn pushed me to stop working on the weekends and she’s helping me get everyone together. I got us a cool AirBnB on the beach!
My mom loves the ocean and sunsets so I think she’ll enjoy it. She works so hard taking care of the family, so I really wanted to surprise her with something special.
Do you guys think I should vlog it? Maybe take some photoshoot pics? Either way, it should be a good mini vacay with the fam. I hope we don’t end up just yelling at each other the whole entire time….I’m going to try to instill the relaxation vibes as soon as we get there! :D
Obviously a day to honor all the mama’s in the land, but also a day to send love to ALL the strong women in our lives too. One of my good friends from high school just gave birth to her first baby boy today! It is SO CRAZY what women can do. WE MAKE HUMANS.
I’m making an effort to spend more time with my girl friends this year because they make me happy. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful, positive, smart and talented ladies like these…
Last night when I was at UC Riverside teaching a POP Pilates Class and doing a Q&A, one of the questions asked was “How does it feel to be a part of the Girl Love Squad?” Hahaha – I didn’t even know our friend group aka “squad” had a title. But I guess it does now and I’m ok sticking to it!
The squad consists of Rosanna Pansino, Lilly Singh, Justine Ezarik, Lindsey Stirling, and me! We naturally formed a bond when we all went to dinner together and started connecting over discussions regarding business, YouTube, boyfriends, managers, and being our own girl boss etc. I love that we all have different talents and bring something unique to the table in a humble and grateful way. So to answer that POPster’s question on how I feel about being part of the Girl Love Squad…I honestly feel…included.
I know that is a weird thing to say but I’ve never been “popular” and I always have felt left out when it came to social activities. But now, I feel like I have friends who get me, accept me, and respect me. It’s a really nice feeling :)
But also!! I feel like I am a real life Sailor Scout out to fight evil and promote happiness!
Hmm, actually I think these Disney princesses are much more accurate.
BTW…I am working on a new Disney Princess sketch for you guys that focuses on DIETS. I think you will love it! Hopefully it’ll come out by the end of the month if we get everything together!
I really hope you guys are CHOOSING to surround yourself with inspirational friends who encourage you to be better versions of yourself everyday. Get rid of that negative, competitive attitude that many women have towards each other. Choose to LIFT each other up and help each other GROW, instead of tearing each other down. Learn from each other. Be kind to each other.
On this planet, we all have this one life to live. So choose to make it the best, most positive experience. It starts with people. And it ends with love. We all want to be loved, so choose to give love to someone else. It’s the best gift anyone can give.
