Mugs Monday with Lesley Pocklington

Happy Mugs Monday, Boss Babes! I hope your weekend included all of the following: pizza, great friends, & good vibes. Speaking of the good kind of vibes, we want to introduce you to Lesley Pocklington of Swell Made Co. She’s an Ontario-based designer and Boss Mom. You’ll love the black, white, & gold designs in her online shop— I’ve had her ‘coffee’ keychain tag on my keys for over a year now (as if I ever needed a reminder to pick up some caffeine). ;) I’m so glad that the magic of Instagram brought us together right around the time that we launched Boss Babe Club last summer and have loved collaborating with Lesley ever since.

Happy Mugs Monday, Boss Babes! I hope you’ve had a fantastic weekend no matter what you were up to. We also have a super fun Galentine's giveaway in collaboration with Allison Foley of Hazel + Dot! Also, let's chat about finding balance in giving & receiving support. We've talked a lot about surrounding ourselves with people who love & support us and letting other “noise” get drowned out. But there’s something key here that I feel the need to discuss, and that’s giving more love & support than we receive.

Let's Not Take Life Too Seriously NSFW

Morning Boss Babes, Happy Mugs Monday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. After a crazy busy week at work, I was more than happy to take it easy & do absolutely nothing. That time to relax was just what I needed. If you haven't been living under a rock recently, then I'm sure you have heard of the book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson. I just finished reading it & it got me thinking a lot about my own personal struggle of giving way too much of a F*ck about everything in my life. I won't go into details about the book because I don't want to give away the good stuff, but I think there are some great takeaways from it & it will open up your perspective a bit.

Push Yourself to Come Through

Push Yourself to Come Through

Good morning & happy Mugs Monday! I would to have some real talk with you this morning. Are you in a comfy chair? Have you got your coffee in hand? If not, go get it! We’ll wait……

….. So let’s talk about an epiphany moment I had in a recent spin class. Katie, the Studio Manager at Cyclebar South Tampa (pictured with me in the gif below) reached out to Boss Babe Club to collaborate in the future & there’s almost nothing that I love more than collaboration. I was invited to take a class. Much to my own surprise, I chose a 7 a.m. class on a Tuesday morning. I’m not a big morning person, but I figured it would be a good way to break my routine. It was my second spin class experience ever. The music was great. I liked wearing the clip-in sneakers. The staff, Katie & Brooke were so friendly & helpful. But what struck me the most were the words that I needed to hear from the instructor, Dani R.

Be Your Own Light Source

Happy Mugs Monday, Babes! Another Monday, another opportunity to smash some goals. Let’s have a quick Monday pep talk before you go off into the world and tackle that to-do list. In a sea of opportunities, and choices, and the constant influx of “new”, it can be easy to lose yourself below the surface. When that happens, you can feel yourself physically sinking with doubt. It turns your energy from ‘possible’ to ‘no way, I just can’t’ and you don’t need that kind of negativity in your happenin’ life.
