Our group reservation will take us to the top of the tower to an included visit at the Champagne Bar while we take in the sights of Paris as far as the eye can see. Once concluded, we will head back down to the first floor for a welcome glass of champagne at the Eiffel Tower’s Restaurant 58 where we will enjoy Dinner and the evening sites before returning to our Chateau. While embracing the fashion forward and romantic airs of Paris, your customized boudoir shoot will take place in a room that looks out toward the Eiffel Tower. Onsite professional Makeup and Hair is included.

YAS!) seeing Westminster, Big Ben, and many other notorious locations. No visit to London will be complete without an evening meal at a London Pub before we return to our private rooms at a local hotel for a good snooze. On Sunday, June 9th, we head to the airport to fly to Galway, Ireland! My homeland! I am so excited to take in what my family and ancestors experienced in this gorgeous country. Once arriving in Galway, we will be renting vans to head to our Castle Estate abode. Our accommodations are stunning in the Irish countryside. Our Ireland Destination sessions will occur on the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher with Onsite Professional Makeup and Hair. Breakfast and Lunch will be available in our private kitchen. In the evenings you can choose to venture in or venture out to Galway! Our stay together will end after 4 amazing evenings on the morning of June 13th.

If you are counting and joining us for both trips, that is 11 FULL days experiencing 3 countries and 2 Custom Destination Boudoir Experiences. For clients who join us for both experiences, they will receive 20 included images ($2000 Value), and their choice of a custom 8×8 Luxury Album featuring a custom design of your breathtaking images OR 20×30 Metallic Wall Art (your choice), a $1000 Value.

Can you believe that 2017 is just days away?! I feel like 2016 was such a whirlwind in my personal life and in our Boudoir Studio. We were busier than I could ever imagine and while I might have felt like I was grasping at straws at times, it made me grow and learn new ways of getting “shit done.” It also brought a lot of falling flat on my face, but hell, we can’t grow without stumbling right?

In my last post, which you can find here, I talked a lot about my constant issue with apologizing, FOR EVERYTHING. I had to really internalize why that is, and quite frankly it comes down to the view of my worth, my self-value, and my constant need to determine that value based on what other’s perceptions of me are. If that sounds familiar, you might want to read on.

As 2017 approaches, most of us start to feel a bit of panic/determination. It comes with thoughts of “Shit! I didn’t accomplish this” and “Dammit, this is my year and xyz is really going to happen this time.” I begin creating my vision boards, evaluating what I did not accomplish, and determining what I will accomplish this year as a business owner and in my personal life.

To be honest, my goals often revolve around business, my kids, and my relationship with my husband. Rarely do I make goals that revolve around myself directly. Quite honestly, I feel selfish thinking about myself. I mean, to the extent that I don’t purchase myself a new pair of shoes when I frankly need them. I have taken the role of Mother, Wife, Teacher, and Business Owner on to such an extent, the “me” just doesn’t exist anymore. All of the roles take complete priority in my energy and financially. If your head is nodding yes with me as you read this. Stop it. Wait. Keep nodding your head in agreement, but stop losing yourself completely.

This year 2017 is being turned on its head. Instead of just creating dream boards, lists, and goals, I am using this book to stop planning without purpose, and instead accomplish my dreams in a way that makes me feel good. Me, my, and myself, is moving to the top of the list. Now, there are things I LOVE. I hold back from indulging in them because I feel financially guilty for doing so (remember I don’t even buy shoes for myself when I need them).

When you are constantly giving to others, you eventually just run out and there is nothing to give. So I am giving myself freedom to give to myself WITHOUT guilt. That shit is hard to do! Guilt is a jerk that quite honestly steals your happiness. Through self-reflection I have realized that I can’t be the best of me in all those roles without actually giving back to me (massages included).

So how do I get around the guilt of spending on me? I do it wisely. I might have done a little math and realized that the $5 I spend a day on a latte adds up to a lot of money each month, and while I don’t want to discontinue them completely, I could probably minimize them to once a week, and put the rest toward the things I really want to do for myself to feel recharged this 2017. I challenge you to participate in the exercise below. I have listed my process here as an example. Plus you totally get to see my personal goals for this year:

  1. Travel to my favorite Boudoir Photographer at the end 2017 to experience my own boudoir shoot.
  2. Workout 3 days a week- this releases the good stuff so I feel better mentally and physically- be gone depression.
  3. Read one book a month with my favorite cup of tea in hand.
  4. Once a month, purchase an apparel item or a spa service, and do it without guilt- I work my butt off and deserve it- keep saying this mantra over and over!

So how will I accomplish these goals? First, by establishing that I am worth more than the $$ I spend on my daily latte purchase. Second, scheduling my time.

How will I put them in motion? I am scheduling my boudoir shoot ASAP! This makes me accountable, and it tells the universe that this year I am putting value in myself. The more I put those actions out to the universe, the more it will come back to me. Also, creating my boudoir vision board. Third, (already did this one) purchasing a detailed planner and scheduling all of my time out- and I mean all of it. Finally, I created a budget, yes a budget, just for me. Again, this means I am not having a daily latte because I know that the value I will gain from a boudoir experience and the process I will go through to get to that shoot will bring me much more satisfaction and self-worth than my daily latte.

Now it’s your turn! Drop the guilt! Determine goals and a vision for yourself that increase your self worth and make you feel empowered! If you are ready to take the Boudoir Experience challenge with me, we encourage you to book your shoot today! We have created an amazing offer for our clients that accept and book before January 1st (it also locks in our 2016 pricing before it increases January 1st). We have made the budgeting piece easy peasy! Choose your product and let our monthly automated billing system do the rest so you have nothing to worry about the day of your shoot- your investment into yourself has already been made and you can just focus on you!

Click the “Contact Link” to get started! I can’t wait to begin this “Me” journey with you this 2017!

You Are Worth More Than You Think+

There are two little words…well one is a contraction, but that’s a grammar lesson for another day, that women say all the time. We rarely notice their frequency or the long term consequences of how often they are said, but they are so impactful. I have to digress for just a moment and tell you a little story that will bring us full circle, so bear with me for just a moment. Last week I went to Fudruckers to purchase dinner for my family. I had a client coming to the house to pick up her products and I was in quite the rush…I used these words at least 7 times in my two minute interaction with young, high school-aged cashier. She replied it’s fine so many times I think she became annoyed. I noticed this and wondered why I used those two little words so many times in such a short amount of time. The following morning, I headed to Starbucks for my favorite Bacon Gouda Breakfast Sandwich and Grande Flat White Latte. As I approached the the drive-thru window, I struggled to get out my handy dandy app to complete my purchase. This AMAZING woman opened the window with a cheerful good morning, and I did it again. I said,”I’m sorry I just have to load more money quick.” This wonderful woman looked and me and said, “Don’t be sorry! I think as women we say sorry way to often. We just need to let it all hang out and quit apologizing for everything!” She said this with such conviction and wonderful enthusiasm that I just laughed, agreed, and pulled away to begin my day. Her words have stayed with me. I thought a lot about why I, as a female, find myself using those little words so very frequently. I believe my wonderful message carrier at Starbucks was so right…we need to stop saying “I’m Sorry.” An apology is an ownership of a mistake, a wrong that you are trying to right. Why do we take so much ownership in mistakes? Are they truly all ours to own? Or is it because we don’t feel good enough to truly feel ok with the decisions we are making and need someone to say “it’s okay.” I think it is possibly all of those things. Think about it for just a moment. Do you hear men apologizing 2,3, or more times in a conversation? In all honesty, I don’t think I have ever heard it occurring more than once to a cashier, for example. I am very vocally a feminist; always demanding equality, equal pay, and equal respect, and yet, I don’t value myself enough to demonstrate what I so request the opposite sex provide to me.

And the AHA! Moment occurs. It comes down to self-value and self-acceptance. It’s hard shit to do! Just because I encourage you to love yourself on a constant basis doesn’t mean I don’t struggle with it myself (we totally keep it real around here if you haven’t noticed yet). We as women are a constant work in progress. So why the ramble? Because this is quite honestly a bit cathartic for me…having an English degree means writing is your springboard…for everything, and secondly because I want to challenge you to challenge yourself. Take a moment to think about how often you apologize each day, what drives your apologies, what do you need to change to quit feeling what drives your apologies. I challenge you to do the following with me:

  1. Minimize your apologies- is it worth ownership or guilt?
  2. Assess yourself self-value. Where are you on a scale of 1-10?
  3. Switch gears. Give yourself one positive affirmation each day.
  4. Identify with YOU- not mommy, wife, sister, daughter- just YOU.
  5. As 2017 approaches- dream big. Write down a goal/dream that your heart desires for just you. Keep it in a place you can see it every day and put it out to the universe. Fulfill your desires.
  6. Be a BOSS. Own your desires, dreams, and decisions like a boss- no apologies.
  7. Finally, support the females around you to achieve these steps. Giving is receiving! Find value in your gifts!Love Yourself First +

Guess what?! We are all in this boat at times, and sometimes it quite frankly sucks! The more we can acknowledge that we all have a common thread and help each other be the kick ass bosses we are, the more we can live fulfilled as equal females. Here’s to kicking ass as #ladybosses! We love you ladies and we want to help you support you in this amazing journey! Join us on instagram, our handle is: tarareinersboudoir, where we will be pushing those positive affirmations each day! Get your self-love out to the universe and see what it changes for you. We want to hear about it!!! As you follow the steps, let us know in the comments!
