Sneaking Into A Music Festival

I feel like most of life comes down to taking risks. If you're not taking a risk, are you really living? I totally understand that some people don't want to live on the edge. It makes sense. Being an entrepreanur means you have to be ready and willing for anything to come your way, good or bad. It definitely makes for a thrilling life, but one that isn't always straightforward and to the point...

I wanted to go to Wireless Festival so badly since my friend sent me a link to their lineup earlier this year, so I told her to meet me in London last week for Wireless. I submitted for a press pass, and they were really strict and only gave me one badge. If you know me, you know I'm not the kind of person to take no for an answer. I hear the word no, and instantly my head turns the word no to maybe to yes, yes, yes. It's hard to be successful if you aren't always aiming for a yes! 

Watch the video above to see whether or not we all made it in!!

I've been spending the past few days working on the curriculum for my nonprofit, M.I.N.T. My business partner, Steve, is working on the cutting section, and I'm doing body image. When I open up my laptop everyday and start writing, I feel so inspired to continue to push for this dream. I've had to do some intense research on eating disorders like anorexia and orthorexia, and the statistics are seriously shocking. If you haven't read my review of To The Bone, read it here. I thought the movie perfectly portrayed anorexia, and really opened me up to what teens with eating disorders face. I suffered with orthorexia, which has some similarities to anorexia, but different tactics and treatments to recover. Did you know 5-15% of the overall anorexia rate is a male with anorexia? 

P.S. I've made one of my goals for the month of July to be unsubscribing to every pointless email I get. I'm starting to realize how many email lists I must be on that I never subscribed to!? Is secretly subscribing me to your newsletter even legal!? 

Subscribe to the Fashion Lane newsletter and we'll only send you a newsletter twice a month, I promise! I'm also starting a giveaway where I give 5 Instax cameras away to the next 5 people who subscribe, so get your friends to subscribe and email me!!
