Announcing... Instant Insta! Self-Love Card Deck


Instant Insta Self-Love Card Deck5

I've been hard at work on a new product, and it's finally here!!! I'm so excited to announce the first INSTANT INSTA Card Deck: Self-Love Edition! 

For the Year of Self-Love, I wanted to create a product to help others promote self-love, and I decided the best way to do this would be to combine two things I personally love: Instagram inspiration and card decks (I have a slight obsession with them... especially this one. and this one. and this one.)

Instant Insta Self-Love Card Deck1You guys love the things I post on Instagram, and one of my absolute favorite things is when someone comments, "Thank you! This came at just the right time!" So I thought, What if I could create something where people could have Instagram inspiration whenever they wanted, regardless of whether I'd posted a new image or not? And that's how the concept INSTANT INSTA was born! 

A card deck you can hold in your hands (just like a phone!), I designed the card deck to empower and enlighten you with 52 hand-lettered quotes and questions you can access any time you need a self-love boost. I've been playing around with it for a few weeks, and I love it. There's something really cool about choosing a card at random and seeing how those words make you feel. 

Read on for more details, and click the image at the bottom of the post to grab your deck today!  



You might be wondering, What exactly do I get? 

Card-Deck-Self Love

First and foremost, you're getting INSTANT INSTA, aka, instant inspiration for creating more self-love in your life. If you want to feel empowered and more in love with yourself (and your life!), this card deck is for you. When you purchase, you'll receive an email with a PDF download link. In the PDF, you'll get: 

♥  52 self-love inspiration cards

♥  1 cute + colorful card box

♥  5 card background options

♥  Detailed assembly instructions

♥  List of recommended supplies 



Now you might be wondering, Why do I need this in my life?

If, like so many of us, you struggle to stay empowered and inspired in a world filled with negativity, this is just what you need. Not only do the cards offer inspiration in the form of hand-lettered quotes and prompts, but the act of choosing a card when you need some thought-provoking inspiration is a wonderfully positive activity to incorporate into your daily routine. The IRL experience of choosing a card when you need a self-love boost can be transformative. I've found that words seem to find me when I need them most, which is why I love having so many card decks around.

Instant Insta Self-Love Card Deck4While I love Instagram (and all kinds of online inspiration), there's something kind of magical about choosing words with your actual hands. That tangible experience is totally different than spotting a good quote online, and it's one of my favorite daily routines. I'm so thrilled that I can now do it with my own card deck — and now you can too! 

Also, not only is it really cool to have tangible Positively Present inspiration in the palm of your hand, but there's also something really empowering about putting it together yourself, with your own two hands. You become part of the process, and that makes the cards even more special. (Plus, who doesn't love a fun, easy little craft project?!)

The card deck is perfect for anyone looking for bite-sized inspiration, for quick and easy empowerment. Plus, there's the added bonus of choosing your favorite cards and hanging them up somewhere you can see them every day. (Or tucking them in a wallet or purse for an on-the-go self-love boost!)



And, of course, the most important question: How do I get my hands on this magical little deck?

Lucky for you, place your order by clicking the image below and it's yours. Very instant! ;) Click the image below to get your deck and get started on the tantalizing, tangible joy that comes from holding self-love inspiration in the palm of your hand! 



5 Tactics for Conquering Positive Change



A few weeks ago, I wrote Clearing the Clouds: How to Cope with Panic, where I delved into the financial aspects of running my own business and shared some of the tactics I'd been using to make the most of a difficult time. Since then, I've had the great fortune to be connected with a number of companies and opportunities. (It's amazing what a little bit of time can do!) I'm thrilled about the opportunities that have come my way, but with new opportunities comes change — and, even when change is positive, it can be difficult to cope with.

The Positive Power of Pups : How Dogs Can Help You




This week I was fortunate enough to team up with Purina and Barkley the Morkie (Yes, she officially has an Instagram account. If you like cute and sassy, you'll enjoy it!) to celebrate the first annual Beverly Hills Dog Show. Bark and I might not live in Beverly Hills (yet!), but we're thrilled to be part of such an awesome event, raising money for a good cause: Leader Dogs for the Blind — a global organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals who are blind or visually impaired. Learn more about the dog show and the campaign at the end of this post. 


If you're new here, you might not know that love dogs. Like, a lot. Like, so much that when I was a little kid I told my parents that my dream was to marry a dog. (A fact my dad likes to joke about, telling me that I have, in a way, achieved my dream through my single, ultimate-dog-mom status. Thanks, Dad.🙄 ) This isn't the first (or last!) time I've written about the wonderful lessons I've learned from the four-legged friends in my life, but I'm always learning new things about the positive power of pups. Keep reading for my latest thoughts on the positive power of pups! (Note: I'm pretty sure most of these apply to cats and other pets as well, so don't be deterred if you're not a dog lover!)
