Last week, Nichelle and I went to Asheville, NC with the AMAZINGRed Dress team, an online women’s clothing brand. I’ve been personally shopping with them since HIGHSCHOOL – and they were one of my collaborators when I FIRST started blogging, so I feel like they are really my home team.
The drive from Athens to Asheville is super easy – it’s only about 3 hours. This time of year is basically like their Super Bowl as the leaves start changing and everyone is gearing up for the holidays right around the corner!
Nichelle and I did a wine tasting, a Land Rover tour, and took some amazing content photos.Be sure to tune into Episode 43 from our Season 4 Launch of Life with Loverly to hear all the things to include in your Biltmore tour too – as well as learn details around the upcoming Red Dress Dream Drop for her next clothing line!
Seriously, if you get the chance to visit the Biltmore this season, Nichelle and I couldn't recommend it more. We didn’t want to leave :)
And then, also in Episode 43 is the real MVP of the digital space right now:Mallory Ervin.
If you’ve ever wanted to make a change in your life because you feel you aren’t living into your full potential, this episode is for you.
Mallory is abest selling author, podcaster, and youtuber. Her career began on the Miss America stage, took a turn into 3 seasons on the Amazing Race, and then she navigated her way to Youtube where she has now cultivated a following totalling over 700,000.
Mallory is here to break down the meaning behind her brand’s mantra: LIVE FULLY, and how we can stop living a FINE life and start living a FULL one, right here, right now.
Mallory overcame an addiction to prescription pills after her time in the Miss America Pageant and is now here to help all of us lead a life of fullness, not just of comfort.
What I love about Mallory and this conversation is how vulnerable she is about her lowest points of life, and also how she consistently fights to keep her values at the forefront of all her decisions. You know how life gets so busy that it’s hard to know which way is up and which way is down? Well, we’ve all been there – especially as moms. Mallory gives so much wisdom on this episode around how to navigate living your life in alignment with your values, even when things get overwhelming, so you can keep feeling like YOURSELF in your everyday.
We also chatted about:
- Mallory’s biggest advice for those wanting to break into the blogging industry,
- How to identify ‘red flags’ in your life, and
- Where do we begin to live fully starting TODAY.
One of my favorite parts of this episode is at the end when Mallory breaks down a metaphor on how to make sure our priorities actually stay priorities in our lives. At some point in time, you’re probably going to drop a ball, but the way Mallory explains how she evaluates what it means to ‘drop the ball’ in her own life has helped me so much since this conversation.
There are so many golden nuggets in this episode and I seriously can’t wait for you to tune in.
