This post started out as a chill, Cali vibes, loving life kind of post. Drew and I shot it in the golden hour one day after work and although it started out rocky (I was having a low confidence day and hated how the photos made me look), it turned into one of my favorite posts I’ve shot since moving here. However, I’ve been in a mood lately and feeling some type of way. I’m frustrated with the lack of momentum with blog projects and I feel like I’ve been putting others before myself. I also feel as though I have been completely under appreciated, and quite frankly, I’m sick of it. 

Maybe this post relates more to my day today than I thought it did. Now, instead of a grooving, fun style post, it’s become more of a battle cry. Much like this post, I started today feeling kind of mellow and whiney. But now, with the help of a much needed pep talk and some serious self realization, I’m turning this day into something else. It’s time to stop making excuses, put myself out there and stop caring what anyone else thinks. Sure, I’m a really sensitive and emotional person at my core, but I still have a breaking point and I’ve reached it. Can I Kick It? Sure. But I’m not asking anymore, I’m telling. I’m going to kick ass, take names, and put up with zero bullshit and there’s nothing anyone can do to stop me. Move over people because I’m coming through. 

Play this song while scrolling through the photos, it’s better that way:

  1. I’ve never thought you were as beautiful and confident as I saw you this weekend. Your confidence should be through the roof, even though I know that’s easier said than done. Anyhow, I think ya know how much I appreciate you, but just know that I’m not the only one.


    • I love you for saying that and thank you for being my friend you beautiful girl. Miss you already xo

  2. Love these photos, Kayte (and A Tribe Called Quest) <3

    You are AMAZING, and you are creating something so special in this space. Don't let anyone tell you different or stand in your way.

    I totally get feeling under-appreciated (ahem… I don't need any more projects "for my portfolio"). Learning to just say no can be such a powerful tool. You're a badass babe, and you deserve mad R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

    You've got it right – just put yourself out there, and keep kicking ass and taking names 😉

    • Thank YOU for everything you do and for being such a huge support to me over the past year. I seriously appreciate your time and friendship and am so happy that soon you’ll be out here kicking ass and taking names with me! :* xoxo

  3. I love this post! Sometimes is it nice to hear that other people are going through the same thing. I have faced this problem lately where I feel very unmotivated with my blog and the most important thing is to not let this become a huge rut but rather just pull yourself out of it! It can take time to be completely motivated but as long as you keep a positive attitude and keep making progress toward your blog then it will come in time! Best of luck! I will be following along on your blog 🙂

    • Thank you so so much for your kind words. It means a lot to know that others are experiencing the same frustrations and I totally agree that staying positive and pushing through is the best way to go and grow. We got this! 🙂

    • Thank you so much!!! I really appreciate that 🙂
