Hello! It has been a long time since I last posted and a whole lot has happened in the meantime.

I moved to Greenville, South Carolina.

I got engaged!

I've pretty much, with the help of my fantastic wedding coordinator, Whitney, planned our entire wedding.

I started teaching yoga at a studio here in downtown Greenville called Studio17.

I created my own yoga business because I'll be teaching King of Pops yoga as well. I'm trying to teach as much as I can and make a name for myself as a yoga instructor. Head over to Alanah Yoga to check it out and follow me on Instagram for updates on where I'll be teaching.

I hand-dyed 70 yards of fabric.

My work was featured at Charleston Fashion Week. whoa!

I visited Charleston for the first time on a very quick trip.

I've done a lot of reflecting, writing of goals, figuring out the big, important stuff, and made some decisions about the direction I'm going to take my business.

And most recently, I started slingin' pops again.


I've included some photos of my work in Charleston Fashion Week. Fashion designer, Roy Blake Smith, asked me to hand-dye yardage for his collection. He participated in the Emerging Designer competition and made it to the finale! His collection was absolutely stunning and it was an honor to be part of it. It was also pretty surreal to see my work on the runway.

There were twelve looks total but I've only included seven of them here. These photos were taken by Headshots Charleston. See more photos of Blake's entire collection at Charleston Fashion Week's site!

This post is titled perspective for a reason, and while I have so much to share on this topic, I will keep it short. I listed all of the things I've been working on since my last post and I'm sharing these photos because it is so important for us to step back and see what we've accomplished. In the last year and a half that I've had my business, I've done a whole lot of stuff and have been learning so much, while also working several jobs, doing a yoga teacher training and moving a few times. I'm learning to value the work I've done and recognize my accomplishments, even the little ones. Cheers to hard work and seeing the results of it, even if it takes longer than we hoped!

Chat soon, friends!
