LUCKY COLLECTIVE!

LUCKY COLLECTIVE!

I have some exciting news! I’ve launched my own social media, digital marketing and creative shop – Lucky Collective. I’ve wanted to work for myself for a really long time and one main reason was to have more control of my work/life balance and have flexibility to work on what I want and when I want. I chose the word collective because it’s a word that implies bringing together – and that’s what I want to do – bring together amazing people with different skills and talents to do awesome work. My own specialities are social media marketing, event planning, influencer activations and the like, but ultimately, I want to be […]

a new blogging chapter!

hi friends! i’m super excited to reveal my newly rebranded and re-designed blog! before i dive into the new blog, i wanted to share my blogging story with you guys. i started blogging at polish my crown in 2010 because i wanted an outlet to share, to document, to connect with others. the name polish my crown started after my friends and i made a realization that we needed to treat ourselves as queens, worthy of respect, dignity and love, even when other people don’t. we joked about ‘crown polishing’, which is essentially giving yourself or someone else a little pick-me-up – a compliment, a life truth reminder, a […]

I recently re-read my personal definition of success (originally written jan. 2012) and wanted to re-share. the list below shares the six ways I measure if my life is successful to this point, to check in on where I’m at and what I’m focusing my time and energy on. they are life goals, in a way, and focused on who I am as a person. to help people maximize and discover their potential. to radiate unconditional love – to everyone, every day. to live out God-given joy. to live with authentic integrity. to be surrounded by people who encourage and challenge me. to be the best person […]

on possibility and 2014

“Write this down: My life is full of unlimited possibilities.” – Pablo I’ve shared previously that my word for 2014 was possibility. I wanted to pick one word that would mark my year; that I could embrace and focus on all 365 days of 2014. I chose possibility because I wanted the year to be a time where I was open whatever was to come. I wanted to be open to potential and to be hopeful for whatever was next. The way this came to life this year has been really interesting and really awesome. It’s been a big year, an eventful one to say the […]

a quick update

a quick update

hello friends! i hope you’re having a great week so far! i wanted to give you a quick life/blog update. when i started polish my crown over three years ago, i never imagined it would be a place where i would continue to share well into my mid-twenties. it’s been such a blessing for me to have this little place on the internet and to write and learn and grow. the purpose of the blog is to encourage people to live their best lives possible, to view themselves as queens. this, of course, never means to be bratty and stuck-up, but instead, clothed with strength […]
