PHOTOGRAPHERS: Want to learn my tips to creating beautiful flatlays?



Investing in experiences is very important to me. I love to go to Brazil in December to spend my mom’s birthday with her. I love to go on tropical vacations in February to get away from the cold, I love to go to Europe in Spring… I’ve made these things a priority and because of that, I’ve been able to do them for the last three years. 

As I was writing the 30 things I’d like to accomplish in the next 10 years, I kept thinking of the things I did do before I turned 30. I think if I had written a list, it would look pretty much like this. 

  1. Went Deep See fishing
  2. Got scuba certified
  3. Became a certified Yoga Sculpt teacher
  4. Swam with sharks
  5. Fed Stingrays
  6. Went on 3 cruises
  7. Visited over 30 countries
  8. Went to 4 continents 
  9. Went Parasailing
  10. Swam with Manatees (Florida)
  11. Sat front row in a broadway Musical in New York (Lion King)
  12. Ate a Philly Cheese Steak in Philadelphia 
  13. Saw the Petronas Towers in Malaysia and went all the way to the top floor
  14. Walked on the pink sand beach (Bahamas)
  15. Saw the Eiffel Tower Glitter at night (Paris) 
  16. Walked across Abbey Road in London
  17. Saw the Mona Lisa at the Louvre
  18. Drank beer and ate brats in Germany
  19. Explored the Acropolis (Greece)
  20. Swam in the Blue Lagoon (Iceland)
  21. Made a wish at the Trevi Fountain (Italy)
  22. Visited Pompeii (Italy)
  23. Drove and climbed the Amalfi Coast (Italy)
  24. Bought my first house (sold it), and bought my first investment property
  25. Visited the Christ statue in Rio de Janeiro
  26. Flew on a private jet
  27. Grew a garden and ate the produce
  28. Went whale watching (Iceland)
  29. Ate pizza in Naples
  30. Became successfully Self-Employed
