We asked Lisa Kirk of Something Pretty to share her thoughts on what "be the belle" means to her. Read on for her take on our mantra and a little peek into how she achieves this each day.
To me, “be the belle” means approaching each area of my life with grace and strength, two qualities I am always striving for in marriage, motherhood, my health, my work, and my blog. Being a part-time working mama means my days look totally different—on one day, I may meet a friend at the playground and then take a jog with our strollers, and the next day, I may be headed to my favorite coffee shop to work while my babysitter is with my son. No matter what my day looks like (or what I may throw into my tote bag to bring with me), I hope to always carry myself with grace and strength.
On afternoons when I’m working on my fashion and lifestyle blog, Something Pretty, I’ll throw a few blogging essentials—my laptop, some magazines and catalogs (Pinterest is fine, but there’s nothing like a few glossy pages to get inspired!), and an Instagram Story-ready lip gloss—into my Be the Belle tote and head out for an hour of writing and sharing the things I love.
