  • EDIT... Sydney is OK!! I posted this without thinking how the quote sounds. It spoke to me about her soul but I scared a few of you with it. SORRY!! . She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful. F. Scott Fitzgerald . This picture of my eldest child, Sydney, tells a very different story from the picture I posted a few days ago of Olivia. Many of you have seen it before and some of you have even followed us since 2015 and know the story behind it. For those who don’t, Sydney was born with Down Syndrome. She’s faced challenges from the start but in 2015 she was diagnosed with an extremely rare, fast growing and aggressive brain tumor. She then spent 7 months of her life never leaving her hospital room (except for a few trips around the hallway of her floor). It was a difficult time for my family as we were split between two states (the hospital wasn’t in Kansas) and Olivia was also recovering from a major surgery (both girls had surgery the same week). During all of this, the instagram community came together to support us in a way that just floored me. We were sent so much love, prayers, energy, light and thousands of cards from around the world urging Sydney to stay strong and know they were behind her, behind the whole family. So with the Instagram theme this week being #whpcommunity, I had to share this story again. I will never forget that kindness 🙏🏼 I also have some exciting news to share if you’ve read this far. @makeawishamerica is sending us to @waltdisneyworld in January. We are so excited and I know Sydney is going to LOVE it! ❤️

  • True freedom comes when we realize we are loved, pursued, protected and comforted by a loving Father beyond our wildest imaginations🙏🏽. May you find and know this kind of love not in your searching and striving in all the wrong places but from our Heavenly Father Himself. 😘😘 Despite what is going on in life, you and I are SOOO loved, my friend. May we live each moment this week carrying a heavier revelation of God’s love for us and sharing it to those around us. Thanksgiving week, here we go! 😁😍😘📸: Daddy’s girl. Tried posing her with her daddy but she wanted to do her own thing, instead. Couldn’t complain. How do you even direct a 4 year old to have this expression and to hold her daddy’s hand like this? 🤷🏽‍♀️😅😍 #lovephotography📷 #beautifulphotography #momentslikethese #losangelesphotography

  • Finally went through official photos from last month's press conference celebrating 100 @gocarmy locations at Shell in Malaysia! 🚙⛽️ When we said yes to the event, we knew the kind of craziness we were getting into, but it didn't really sink in until days leading up to the event — meetings after meetings, tons of email threads, updating project sheets and lists, WhatsApp group chats demanding more attention than my mum (love you lots Mama Chew 😂), back-to-back briefing sessions, last minute changes, and the list goes on. True enough, there’s never a “perfect” event but this was more than what we expected — thanks to the team at Shell Malaysia, our activation and PR agencies, and of course my all-star #TeamGoCar for pulling this off together 🚀 ’Twas a busy couple of months, definitely looking forward to a breather to recharge 💆🏻‍♀️

  • A couple of weeks ago I spontaneously decided to go to China with my best friend, and last Wednesday, we arrived in the city called Nanjing.✈️ We stayed there just a few days and I feel that time went too quick because in China, there are so many things to do and see!✨ We ate too much, slept too little and walked around everywhere. One day, we walked about 37 000 steps and I had heels! Luckily we got amazing feet massages after that🙊 I didn't want to spend much time with my phone, and the internet connection was slow, so I hope you don't mind that I will post my China pictures little late!🇨🇳🍜 Have a wonderful week lovelies!😘💞

  • Attention girls 15 - 19 years old (or family & friend of them!!). Join me for this six hour workshop where we’ll dive into what it means to be brave and adventurous, learn how to recognize and celebrate our own beauty and the beauty of those around us, and to know without a doubt that we are enough as we are and a work in progress at the same time. Yoga aids in the cultivation of presence as you become attuned to our needs and learn how to act on our own behalf. We will be incorporating three yoga practices into our time together: vinyasa, yin, and mindfulness meditation. Each participant will receive a workbook that she will follow along with, write in, and take with her to further reflect on when the workshop is completed. Cost: $150 (or sign up with a friend for the discount rate of $125/each) Where: @ardenhotyoga When: December 8th & 9th, from 12 - 3

  • We’ve got lots of jobs as mamas. * I’ve got to make sure they’re eating healthy. All the quinoa and all the organic and all the kale. (Everyone’s going ape poo over kale right now. Honestly, I agree with my Uncle, it’s a vile weed). . I need to wash their clothes and wipe their bottoms. . I need to bathe them and dress them in matching outfits with carefully orchestrated accessories. . I need to organize ornate craft projects that engage their minds and foster their creativity. . (Insert a million other responsibilities here). But, for me, there’s one responsibility that ranks above everything else. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if they ate kale chips and organic quinoa off of bamboo plates or Mac n cheese off of the kitchen floor. It doesn’t matter if their outfits look straight outta a gap kids add or if I let him pick out his own creative ensemble complete with snow boots and a dinosaur sun hat. * What matters, is that they know Him. What matters is that they know the love of Jesus. I’m raising tiny disciples and it’s an honor and a blessing and a huge responsibility. Every morning, I say, “Today, we are going to be a light!” We may eat leftover pizza off of paper plates while we wear the same sweats we wore yesterday; but we’re gonna let our lights shine. #sundayselfie

  • “Mercury made me do it” • After a terrible day thanks to Mercury I am happy to come home and see its mail day. Especially when it’s from @the.astralbox! ~ In this months box we have: a crystal bottle with agate and rose quartz crystals to put inside it, Luna Phases calendar and a deck of Oracle Cards! ~ I find crystal bottles so rejuvenating! I am already using mine and I can feel the love with every sip of water 🥰

  • Beyond the mistletoe, classic movies, enticing treats, ornate decorations and overhaul of lofty expectations for happiness, altruism and gratitude, is the not so jingle worthy reality that holidays can also be hectic, stressful, overindulgent, lonely and expensive. When our friends, families, partners, kids and coworkers can bombard us with unattractive small talk, uncomfortable political discussions, the overconsumption and ugliness of too much food and booze. Or when we are reminded of those who've passed or are no longer are in our lives in the way they used to be. Or the tendency to overlook or instigate the differences and separations between family members and have to face old wounds, stressful memories of the past. The reality is that a picture perfect holiday doesn't exist no matter what Instagram and the Bergdorf Goodman windows tell us. So today I'm offering a little room for us all to be real about the part of the holiday that hasn't always been so celebrated, but has always had a seat at the table. 🌿| The rest on Gisele Chic.
