Have you seen the wonderful spreads of @myfriendsarefiction ? They are always so gorgeous! Not only that, but I can’t wait to get my hands on this book! 📖 ⠀ ⠀ Contagion is a YA science fiction book written by @heyerin. The story takes place in space 👩🏾‍🚀 and I just know it’s going to wrap me up until I finish it 😁⠀ ⠀ #themobileauthor #HustleQueen #HustleTribe

Today I was updated by my editor that she is half way through my book. It’s interesting how excitement and panic can take hold at the exact same moment. To try and ride the excitement train I thought I would post a book aesthetic based on my protagonist. Enjoy! • For my family based followers there was a lack of outing photos taken this weekend because my little guy crashed his bike hardcore Saturday morning and we have been lying low ever since. He’s fine just scrapes (face and legs) but it will be a struggle to get him back on the bike. Wish us luck! • Hope everyone had an amazing weekend that did not involve searching for first aid supplies. • #bookstagram #bookaesthetic #protagonist #youngadultbooks #youngadultromance #romancebooks #authorsofinstagram #alwayswriting #momfirst #momfail #firstaidrequired #completelyincompletebook #writinglife #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #yycauthors #indiepublishing #selfpublishing #lazyweekend #youngadultfiction
What’s up Hustle Tribe?! How was your Sunday? It’s blistering hot 🔥 here in my city, and I’ve been enjoying my air conditioning. ❄️ #themobileauthor #hustlequeen #hustletribe
PLANT BASED MEXICAN SALAD. . Ok, so this recipe was supposed to be lettuce wraps but it turned into a ginormous salad bowl of deliciousness. The ‘meat’ of the dish (pardon the pun), is underneath all of the cashew sour cream that’s drizzled on top. It’s a black bean and quinoa mix that is literally 1 c of uncooked quinoa, 1 can of black beans rinsed and drained, 1 cup water and 2 tins of tomatoes all boiled until the quinoa is cooked and has soaked up all the moisture. Of course I added Mexican spices; chili powder, garlic powder, cumin and oregano. The rest is up to you in what kind of veggies you want to add in. The cashew sour cream recipe is from @ohsheglows and is super easy peezy to make. All in all it was a win! Happy Sunday peeps! . . . #plantbased #yycliving #yycinfluencer #writer #food #faith #foodie #fitness #sundayeats #vegan #veganfood #vegetables #veganrecipes #homemade #iger #instagram #instagood #instafood #mexicanfood #yum #summer #summereats #author #authorsofinstagram #weightloss #yycauthors #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #entrepreneur

Ever feel like a lost pineapple when you’re trying to write your novel? 🍍 You aren’t alone my friends! ❤️ One of the first steps you take when starting a novel is the outline. At least that’s what we are taught. 📖 Outlines work well for some people, and not others. If you’re an outline person then I’ve got some techniques you probably haven’t heard of! 👇🏼 http://cljepsen.com/2018/06/outline-your-novel I can help you decide what is the best fit for you. ☺️
Celebrating the successful launch of #wos . #womenofstampede #yycauthors . Thanks to my darling daughter for this gift. #flowers #wine #relaxing

We came across this beautiful article about a local children’s author @stephaniehrehirchuk here in #yyc on the belocal.org please read her inspiring story below.👇🏻 To purchase her beautiful books the link will be in our bio! Stephanie Hrehirchuk is a children’s author who “accidentally fell into” the profession two years ago. A passionate yogi and mother, Stephanie had originally set out to write a manuscript on yoga practice and parenthood – but she wasn’t making the progress she’d hoped for. “There was a point where I needed to get past my self-doubt around putting this book in the world,” she says. “I thought that taking a children’s story that I’d already written and publishing it myself would give me the tools, knowledge and confidence to later publish this manuscript.” That children’s story – Anna and the Earth Angel – quickly snowballed into Stephanie self-publishing two more (Anna and the Tree Fort, and Anna and the Food Forest), each one based in Calgary and with the aim to provide kids in Grade 3-4 with the tools for creative problem solving and environmental stewardship. “All of my Anna stories are based on my life and adventures here in Tuscany and 12 Mile Coulee. The coulee has been my sanctuary for 12 years, and I wanted to connect others with the nature that they drive by every day. How alive, and yet sensitive, it is.” Stephanie has recently partnered with TreeEra to plant a tree for every print copy of an Anna book sold. TreeEra works to offset carbon emissions by planting trees in deforested regions of Alberta, British Columbia, and the United States. “The publishing industry is very hard on our forests,” Stephanie says. “I needed to find a way to be an author without contributing to that damage.” For books purchased locally (not through a third-party seller like Amazon), Stephanie gets them printed on recycled paper. In addition, Stephanie donates 10% of the profits from her Ayurveda-inspired nutrition guide Nourish to Fuel for School – an organization that brings nutritious breakfasts to elementary schools in need. “I want to plant a million trees and feed a million kids in my lifetime,” she says.

Morning smoothie with grandma. Can you tell which is mine?! It’s been so nice visiting with my grandparents and seeing old friends. A much needed home trip.

Sometimes, a simple salad is all you need. This salad was so satisfying. It has free range chicken for a lean source of protein, baked yams for complex carbs, avocado and extra virgin olive oil for healthy fats and mixed greens and veggies for all the nutrients you need. I started eating chicken again because my stomach was getting so bloated from eating beans- I had to listen to what my body needed. Plant based works better for me than a vegan diet and that’s ok. Sometimes we just need to let go of the labels and eat what our body is telling us to eat. . . . . . #saturday #weekendeats #saladbowl #plantbased #nutrition #foodmatters #healthyfood #healthyeating #healthymindset #yum #nourishbowl #paleo #eat #justeat #foodie #fitness #foodrehab #goodeats #yyc #yycliving #yycauthors #yycinfluencer #influencer #instagram #instagood #iger #instafood #socialmedia #writersofinstagram

I’LL BE HAPPY WHEN.... . I’ll be happy when I get that job. I’ll be happy when I make more money. I’ll be happy when I lose weight. I’ll be happy when I buy a house, when I have kids, when I get married... How many times have you caught yourself saying I’ll be happy when_? The truth is, those things can bring happiness to your life but eventually they fade. We are always striving, seeking and pursuing more. When we achieve what we want, we’re immediately on to the next big thing that’s supposedly going to make us happy. Happiness doesn’t come from acquiring things, it comes from being content in who you are and where you are regardless of how much or how little you have. Monetary items don’t bring a happiness that lasts. Happiness isn’t achieved in having a better body or that new house. Expecting people or things to make you happy will leave you unhappy sooner or later. Love the people around you and enjoy things. Have goals and dreams and desires, but don’t wait to be happy when__, be happy now. That’s the secret to happiness. . . . . #happy #motivation #inspiration #instagram #instagood #instadaily #influencer #yyc #yycliving #yycauthors #yycinfluencer #success #style #bossbabe #ladyboss #entrepreneur #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #healthymindset #writersofinstagram #writer #author #authorsofinstagram #coach #behappy #dontwaittobehappy #behappynow #socialmedia

LIVING IN DENIAL AND FORGIVENESS ARE NOT THE SAME THING. . We all have people who have hurt us in our lives that we need to forgive. Forgiveness isn’t pretending that everything is ok or that the hurt didn’t happen, forgiveness is acknowledging the truth, the pain that was caused and working through it while having mercy and compassion for the other person. Unfortunately, so many people hide behind denial and call it forgiveness or pretend that they’re “over it”. When we live in denial and don’t deal with our shit, our shit comes back to bite us. Our issues come back and manifest themselves in symptom and until we deal with the root of our dis-ease, nothing will ever change. Living in truth is harder than living in denial because it can often be a lonely road that others don’t want to walk down with you. You can forgive someone but live in truth, forgiveness doesn’t look like pretending everything is ok or that hurt wasn’t caused. Just a little epiphany I had over the last week. I hope this helps to those who read it! . . . . . #truth #walkintruth #motivation #motivationalquotes #instagram #instagood #instadaily #writersofinstagram #writer #healthylifestyle #socialmedia #healthymindset #influencer #author #authorsofinstagram #yyc #yycliving #yycauthors #yycinfluencer #styleblogger #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #faith #love #fashion #lookforward

LEAN INTO THE UNCERTAINTY OF LIFE. . For those of you that don’t know, my husband lost his job 4 weeks ago. There has been so many emotions that we’ve both gone through and even though we’re ok right now, we don’t know where we’re going to be in another 4 weeks. My career as an Eating Psychology Coach and writer is so variable that we leaned heavily on his job as our stability so when that stability was taken away, we were no longer just talking about having faith- we were having to practice it. The only thing that’s certain in this life is uncertainty. If we push against uncertainty, we will constantly be living in fear and anxiety because we feel out of control. How much do we really control though? Is control just a clever illusion we hide behind because we don’t know how to deal with uncertainty? Even though we don’t know when another job will come up and I don’t know where my next clients or book sales will come from, we have to lean into the uncertainty, take down our review mirrors and stop looking back as we move forward. That’s all we can really do after all. We can say we have faith, but if there’s never anything to test your faith, then how much do you really have? If you’re going through a tough time because of uncertainty, here’s my advice; make space for it and for all your questions instead of numbing it or pushing it away. Stare uncertainty in the face and welcome it instead of running from it.. . . . . #writersofinstagram #writer #healthylifestyle #socialmedia #healthymindset #author #authorsofinstagram #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #uncertainty #lifequotes #instagram #instagood #instadaily #blogger #yyc #yycliving #yycauthors #influencer #foodrehab #inspiration #motivation #weekendwisdom #shortshorts #blonde #ladyboss #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #entrepreneurlife
