Brunch is ALWAYS a good idea but imagine a brunch full of inspiring women entrepreneurs and the most amazing celebrity event planners!? *Pinch me I’m dreaming!* That’s exactly what I was feeling after being cordially invited by Brian Kelly and Sean Koski to their Blogger Brunch hosted at The Circle. Which is owned by the pair and Lauren Leaderhouse, a luxury pop up shopping experience where not only can you shop amazing brands but also have the opportunity to network with amazing individuals at their monthly events!
The event was breathtaking, from the details in the setup, to the delicious bites, and the amazing women who were so open and embraced meeting new ladies in the rising blogging industry. We laughed, we connected, and we indulged! Not to mention every corner you turned were amazing brands and selections to shop from! Take a look for yourself in the photos posted below and make sure to stop by The Circle located 62 SE 6th Ave Delray Beach, FL 33483 to see their latest brands in store!

Palm Beach Social Diary
The Circle Social
Everything was off to a wonderful start, or at least so I thought. Waking up, working out at a new facility, I was excited. The class was challenging but extremely rewarding even though I couldn’t feel my legs by the end of it. Nonetheless I was still soooooo ready to take on the day. So confident in fact I wasn’t even dreading the DMV, thinking “oh how long can renewing your license honestly take” LOL who was I kidding! After waiting a total of 4 hours I was O V E R everything and everyone! I kept tossing the idea of doing a birthday photo shoot the last three days around in my head and it actually started to overwhelm me. So when the DMV literally took a majority of my day I was over it, over pictures, over birthday planning, over a lot and I couldn’t figure out what my aggravation was stemming from!
I took some time to myself and called my friends and finally I was like you know what Natalie you want this, you want the pictures, you love dressing up just do it! So I go and buy IG worthy birthday balloons and gather my emotional self to get dressed. Finally meet up with my friend Natalie and guess what! The “2” balloon POPS! I literally lost it! The only number left was “4” and that’s exactly how I acted! I fought the balloon! I’m talking claws out lets goooooooooo! Then deciding to just say screw it! I’m going to take the pictures any way. In these moments before the tantrum, during the shoot, and afterward I could feel God tugging at my heart but I was too self-absorbed and worried about my birthday and my shoot and things that didn’t really matter. He was telling me to re-adjust my focus. Honestly writing this and seeing how the photos came out I’m personally shocked at how much God was trying to speak to me! To stop worrying about ME and look to the Lord. I didn’t realize during the shoot but after taking time to pray and looking over the pictures I came across one that reminded me of PSALM 121(posted beneath the picture).
All I can say is God has a funny way of bringing you back to him and I am so grateful for those moments. To remember it isn’t my movie but it’s God’s and if I would live my life to glorify him and not myself. So I’ll just end in a prayer…”Lord thank you for your faithful LOVE, that you watch our every steps and know our every struggle. Thank you that no tear goes unnoticed and that your Spirit guides us. Lord I ask that you would guard our hearts from ungratefulness and worry and instead let our focus be fixed on you. Lord thank you for allowing me to see another birthday! I pray this one comes with even more growth. In Jesus name I pray. Amen!”
Sometimes the vision is there but your focus is off, its time to re-adjust!
Balloon fail post temper tantrum
Psalm 121 : I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
5 The Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
6 the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
8 the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.
Happy 24th Birthday to meeeeeeeee. If you read all of this you a REAL one! Blessings on Blessings!
Being that I’m a Delray native and a girl who livesssss for a fashion show I always find myself getting really excited this time of year! This time I had the pleasure of supporting & assisting a good friend and stylist in styling the models for Ramona LaRue (a Miami designer brand) for this year’s Delray Beach Fashion Week!
Setting up for Opening Evening Wear Show (2018)
All looks were designed by Arianne Brown right out of their Midtown location in Miami Beach! What’s amazing about this designer is that she takes the time to beautifully hand paint all of her prints bringing to life what it means to be a strong, powerful, and alluring woman. I was also able to capture a few other designers like Amanda Perna and Glavidia Davis from the shows and I’m extremely excited to share with you all the amazing shots!
This year was nothing short than amazing, please enjoy the slide show filled with amazing local designers and much more!
Take a peek at how I styled my latest find.
Ok! Ok! So I’m guilty, I’ve never actually jammed out to Van Halen but who says I can’t support them? Well when a random but loyal fan of theirs walks up to you saying “That’s a SICK shirt” and continues to rant about their favorite songs it may be an issue. Although I found just smiling and nodding intensely will suffice, just smile and nod, just smile and nod I repeatedly told myself. What am I expressing here? Nothing other than what to do when you rock a vintage band T-shirt and don’t know any of the songs =)
Not quite sure how to turn your ordinary tee into a LOOK well i’m here to help! I’m sharing with you three different ways you can wear your vintage rock T-shirt or ordinary graphic tee. Continue reading
With Fall in full effect, I have finally embraced the infamous Pumpkin Spice Latte to Fashionable Fall trends. Generally speaking I tend to stray away from trends and do my own thing along the lines of boots in the Summer and honestly whatever I really feel like. This time around I think i’ll dabble with the trends but with my own twist of course.
With Velvet on the rise this Fall season I couldn’t wait Continue reading

Delray Beach is becoming quite the eclectic city, maybe even safe to say venturing from its’ original roots of “Village by the Sea”. What exactly might I mean by this? With events such as Delray Beach Fashion Week, Savor the Avenue, as well as local vendor pop-up events to name a few, the city has found themselves a good amount of publicity. I’ve had the pleasure of attending and partaking in many of these events and I want to share a bit of my experience with you! First things first is Continue reading
City sidewalks, busy sidewalks and no this is not a Christmas carol. I’m just over here reminiscing of a week in New York City with my girls. Especially the night we took the WRONG train in the OPPOSITE direction of our hotel. Oh and that all took place at about 2am. Yea good times.
New York is such a lively city, a faster pace than anything this South Florida girl is used too, nonetheless my friends and I adapted very quickly I must say. I loved every minute of the city, for starters Continue reading
