Summer lovin’ I just realized I’ve been COMPLETELY absent on ig..... life has been totally crazy since January, and at the end of August I realized I MISSED THE WHOLE SUMMER!! 😧 so I’ve been trying to take some days off with my love and enjoy the last of these beautiful days we have left before the cold air rolls in. To all of my clients..... get ready for some photoshoots 😜
Zmiany zawsze mogą przynieść nam korzyść ✌️ może warto jest ulepszyć siebie i zrobić krok naprzód, zaryzykować, zamiast frustrować się małymi rzeczami i pozwalać stresowi rządzić życiem 😌 wzięło mnie trochę na filozoficzne pierdoły, ale serio - może akurat ktoś tego potrzebuje tak, jak ja jeszcze niedawno potrzebowałam ❤️ Strach ma wielkie oczy. Tak.
Have you ever told yourself a story that wasn’t true??
9 months ago, I joined a direct sales company and I quickly became so genuinely passionate about it. But, I was also genuinely scared of what people would think of me.
During that time, I was also in the very early stages of building my photography business. So, I was extra cautious with what else I was introducing into my life. I found it EXTREMELY difficult to fully embrace the two.
For months, I was telling myself that I had to decide between being a Fashion Photographer or someone who sells haircare..
This past week, I attended my company’s annual conference. It was their largest one yet, filled with 8 thousand women ready to up-level and live out their dreams. One of the speakers spoke on a topic that really hit home. She was saying that so many of us have told ourselves the story that we have to choose between this ‘OR’ that, cutting out the option to choose this ‘AND’ that.
For example, we’ll tell ourselves the story, that we can’t be a mom AND an entrepreneur.. etc.
GIRL, when I tell you this CLICKED. It’s like all of the anxiety I had from trying to separate the two and struggling to move forward with either, just went away. I knew this was my moment of breakthrough ✨
Here’s the thing, my core values for Styled by Krystal Andrea are growth, empowerment, love and connection. & hey, guess what.. I, @krystalandrea am the owner of my photography business! I am the same person that sells haircare (& now skincare, which btw, hallelujah 🙌🏽 no puedo with the excitement!!) But those core values are INSTILLED IN ME, and that will translate into everything else that I do.
So, instead of feeling scared to represent my haircare company, I am now reminding myself that my desire is to empower women of all ages, and I will use whatever vehicle it takes to get me there. If people somehow misunderstand that or aren’t on board, that’s okay. As long as I’m happy and aware of the impact I’m making, that’s all that matters.
I say all of this to remind you to step out in confidence with whatever it is you’re doing. Always strive to be 100% happy and fulfilled with what you choose ❤️
Cutting my hair was honestly the best decision I’ve ever made because it’s helped me:
1. Be more confident.
2. Keep myself accountable.
3. Take more risks!
4. Not care what anyone thinks about me.
PS I can finally wear a flower in my hair again! 🙌🏼 & I’m officially in the awkward stage patiently waiting for my hair to grow back but it’s okay. Life is a journey & I’m taking it one day at a time. 💙💙💙 #shorthairdontcare
These inspirational filters make me feel like #thebestversionofme which, at this point in life, is super multi-faceted and experiencing a #creativeawakening ✨ when people ask me what I’m up to, the real answer only makes sense in my head 🧠 so I just reply “Omg so much, can’t wait to show you 🙂”. Then I carry on. Like I did with #feelingmyself in these filters ✨

My workout tonight took only as long as dinner was in the oven, which is 35 mins. I promise I don’t have the patience or desire to work out any longer than that on a daily basis. 😂
We are having baked spaghetti squash. The recipe is vegan. 🍝
