You’re a manifestation coach. What led you to that and what do you love most about your work?
I found manifestation a few years ago when I was experiencing burnout in my career and an overall low with my mental health..feeling unfulfilled, insecure and lacking purpose. It allowed me to let go of the need to control and empowered me to prioritize myself and my goals. After practicing for just a few months, I noticed huge changes in my mental health, self-worth, relationships + more and I was hooked! I deep dived and started applying it to all aspects of my life (even Instagram)!
Fast forward to now and I’ve been able to create a life that I truly am in love with. After 2020, with so much loss and uncertainty, I knew I had to share it with more people! I love empowering other women to go after their dreams and nothing excites me more than hearing their manifestation stories. This work truly has a positive ripple effect on everyone around you.
We'd love to hear your favorite manifestation moment!
Definitely my move to Austin, Texas! I had been feeling called to move there for years and never acted on it until I finally took the leap in January of 2020 after leaving my corporate job. Moving opened up everything for me - I manifested my dream home, relationship, healthier friendships, my full-time business + more within a few months with such ease. It taught me how important it is to listen to our intuition. Even if it doesn’t make sense, feels random or scary...trust it, it’s your guide!
You recently went on a trip to Joshua Tree! What are your must-visit spots in the area?
Joshua Tree is one of my favorite getaways. The desert always inspires and opens up my creativity. I’m actually manifesting a house there one day (soon!). A few of my favorite spots include Pioneertown, especially Pappy & Harriet’s (live music + bbq), Desert Omen (vintage), The Station (home + vintage) and Desierto Alto (local bodega). Also, I try to stay at a new Airbnb each time to get design inspiration. I just stayed at Flamingo Social Club - and every corner is curated to perfection.
Do you have any tips you can share on how you keep your travels eco-friendly?
I try to shop and eat local when I’m traveling. Instead of buying new or picking up “souvenirs”, I love finding a thrift or vintage piece that will always remind me of my visit. Also, making sure to leave no trace on the trails and respect the nature surrounding my stay. And as previously mentioned, I try to stay at Airbnb’s or with friends over major hotels/chains whenever I’m traveling.
What Whimsy pieces will you be packing for your next trip?
All of them?! Ha, but seriously I can’t go anywhere without my Flora Pants… and I’m currently picking out which color of the Valentina Linen Set I want. I know I’ll be taking that everywhere this summer!
