Enjoying all the blooms I got for my birthday this week, even more so as I’ve been poorly ( feeling sorry for myself 🤣 ) 
Big love to my Besties ~ our maid of honour, Usher & Flower Girl. For gifted us a meal at our wedding venue for our anniversary as our wedding present 💝 I cannot wait to go back to our wedding venue & celebrate just the two of us ❤️

💜 Review : 
1)I have dark chapped dry lips like lot of people so usually I apply a tinted lip balm to cover it up ! So once my friend suggested me to try this new product by Irem. 
2)I was sceptical at first I mean how can It actually work ! 
3)I have been using it as a part of my night time routine and apply it on my lips before going to bed 
4) I personally feel.that there is some difference as my lips feel super soft and can't see the dry skin hopefully with constant reapplications I will have the confidence to go out without any colored lip balm on !
5)This is a lip care solution with Vitamin C, wheat germ, Hyaluronic acid, licorice extract, cocoa butter, olive oil, hazelnut oil and honey, this is useful in many ways. Useful for smokers ! .

Greetings from Cape Cod !!! 🌊
...
I’ve been here all week hanging out with my parents & watching my bro play baseball ⚾️ This morning, my parents & I went to the Cape Cod Canal and walked out on the jetty.

This summer has been flying by but I’m so glad I’ve been able to get some fun trips in 😊 #kaylavtravels

What has been the highlight of your summer so far? ✨

Eating healthy in my office isn't always easy, especially when you have easy access to snacks! // I've tried a few of @snapkitchen meals and I'm loving that they have so many options available daily! Brought the Crunchy Coconut Shrimp for lunch so I can stay on track this week! . .

Can't want to try more delicious meals at Snap! Try my code "Camille" to get $45 off your first lifestyle plan! #ad, #snapkitchen, #snaplife, #snapmyway

I'm finished with the first week of my internship and I'm ready to relax! Whenever I'm not working you can almost always find me in some form of jeans and a casual top.
.
I love shopping at Express for casualwear. This pair of high-rise legging jeans fits me like a glove. 🙌🏻 I also love their tops because they add little details that make me look chic and put together.
.
What's your go-to look when you're off the clock?

PS use my code 9446 for 15% off your order! (exclusions apply)

"I LOVE to be tan. In fact throughout college I used to tan in a tanning bed pretty much every day. My mom is frequently getting carcinomas removed from her skin after all her years tanning in the 70’s. So after finally deciding to stop bed tanning I was disappointed in how my appearance looked without a tan. To be honest, I don’t always love self tanning products. They can be messy, smelly, streaky, and sometimes they just don’t look like the real thing! Nonetheless, I decided to give @golden_star_beauty a try! Y’all, I’m actually loving this stuff! I applied their self tanning lotion with their mitt kit, and I have not found a single streak. The color is also very natural and not overpowering. This would be so awesome if you have lighter skin and don’t want to look like an orange 😂 I applied another time after 24 hrs, an I am looking like the perfect shade of tan😍 There is also zero DHA smell when you first apply which is awesome! They also have a tanning oil specifically for your face, and this stuff made my skin so soft and it had the same perfect shade of tan!⁣
Give this stuff a try it’s awesome, aaaaand it’s on Amazon!! "

Often, part of being an entrepreneur means you do well, EVERYTHING 😑 ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
For example, the past few weeks I’ve had to step away from brand collabs to take over social media for this account, my business account and @missfurbelle’s IG as well as Twitter and Pinterest to developer software to run all of them. NOT planned but 100% unavoidable since 75% of my business comes from social! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you’re an entrepreneur in your early stages of launching a business it can be SO easy to get caught up in well, EVERYTHING. Cause your business depends on YOU to run. On the flip side it can feel extremely overwhelming and you may be tempted to just give up.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
DON’T GIVE UP. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I promise you that these days will get easier and you will someday be able to hire a team to help you! Now, on the other hand, of you can afford to hire freelancers to take over some of the small projects meanwhile, DO IT! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
The last thing you want to do is spend your valuable time working on projects that you can pay someone else to complete for you. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Think of it this way: if you’re a blogger and you’re rate is $1k a blog post and it takes you 5 hours start to finish then your time is worth $200/hour. Meaning, don’t pay yourself $20/hour to manage your social media when you can pay someone else to do so! Got it? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I use @upwork and @creativemarket all the time to hire out tasks. Heck I’ve even paid freelancers to manage my emails! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
At the end of the day, make decisions that will benefit your biz and your soul, cause a burned out entrepreneur can never be an effective leader. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And remember, soon you’ll be able to hire a team to help you! Keep going and stay positive 🙂 You got this!⁣⁣

How I personally feel about @instagram announcing their new policy to hide “likes” 🙌🏻 •

I’m an insta-lover! I love looking at peoples pics, sharing my own pics, reading peoples stories, and sharing my own stories. I  especially love connecting with new people and making new friendships... along with discovering new and interesting businesses and products through the magic of Instagram. •

The one thing I never loved... in fact “unloved” was the detrimental impact that Instagram could have on mental health. The comparisons and judgement people would make, plus the weight on self worth it caused had the power to make a negative impact on many lives. •

Now the amazing team @instagram have taken away that super villain power and replaced it with the ultimate super hero power to make Instagram the ultimate positive place to be! •

I understand that this will effect many people in many ways, but let’s focus on the positive and the awesome positive impact it will make for not only ourselves, but the youth of today, and especially our children! •

Businesses and influencers will find a way to continue connecting with their audiences and engaging with their customers and their tribe. I wholeheartedly believe that this is a wonderful step for the future. •

Happy dancing to the new insta love ❤️💃
