Addition Elle x Nadia Teaser

"It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things." - Leonardo Da Vinci

It's getting closer to the release date of my collection with Addition Elle! Here are a couple of pictures from the lookbook. By the way, I can't wait to run through the six with my "new BFF." I found out a few pieces from my collection will be featured during NYFW in Addition Elle's runway show!!! So crazy to even think that'd be happening. I've been wanting to say that phrase for years. On September 24th I'm flying back to New York to present my collection to Lord & Taylor who will be carrying my capsule collection in their stores. The last video in this post is my bloopers from the photoshoot. I always end up joking most of the shoots, especially when I have to speak. I end up doing this awkward eye wink and point my fingers like guns. haha

"People often say that "beauty is in the eye of the beholder", and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realising that you are the beholder. This empowers us to find beauty in places where others have not dared to look, including inside ourselves." -Salma Hayek

This is probably my favorite outfit as of yet. I felt like I was losing it for a while because I got so uninspired at a point because of things going on in my personal life. I was ordering clothes the other day and thought to myself, I'm about to kill shit again. Feeling like myself all over again. Dressing up really does give me more confidence and makes me feel better the days I'm feeling a little down. This white mesh bodysuit from boohoo is everything and more.

Nadia's New BFF

"A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same." - Elbert Hubbard

Addition Elle and I created a contest so that one of you has a shot at becoming my "New BFF" for a day in Toronto. My current BFF is not very happy about this contest and insists that she should be chaperoning on this day. I think a great alternate name for this contest would be "Run Through The 6 With Your New Woe" since we all know how I feel about Champagne Papi.

So, if you would like to be my woe, all you have to do to enter is:
1. Take a selfie inspired by myself.
2. Tag it #nadiasnewbff
3. Describe your dream day with me.
4. Share it on Twitter, Instagram, or upload it directly to the Addition Elle website.

My new BFF and I will be hanging out all day on September 10th, which is the day before my capsule collection with Addition Elle is dropping. I'm so excited for the collection to drop. September 11th is the day, guys! It will also be sold at Lord & Taylor! EEEKKK!!

"You're on your way to a destined path, even though you can't see it yet."

These past months I've been on a journey of I don't really know what..if that makes sense. A lot of pivotal moments. Mainly focusing on myself. I've learned so much, especially this past week. Really the biggest thing I've learned is to demand more for myself. Not just in my career but in my relationships and demand more out of life.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new."

Love all over print swimsuits. I got this one from Clashist. Below in the bottom of this post I put a slide together of my favorite one piece suits right now. I've been taking some downtime, not really. I fly to Chicago this weekend for the Creative & Cultivate conference to speak about building a business. I'll be in Toronto September 11th & 12th for my clothing line release with Addition Elle. I fly straight from there to London for a week. I'm pretty excited. After all that I swear I'm coming back home and booking a flight to somewhere tropical. I have meet and greets coming up, one in Orlando September 5th and another in London on September 17th. Hope I get to finally meet some of you! x

Nude Bodycon

You're on your way to a destined path, even though you can't see it yet.

So I wore this nude long sleeve bodycon dress and I'm just sitting back waiting to hear all of the Kim Kardashian comparisons that always happens. haha. It's always a compliment because she's hot. More importantly, today is my parent's 32nd anniversary. So crazy. I hope to have that one day. Love you mom and dad!

"So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practicality. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect so we never dare to ask the universe for it. My father could have been a great comedian but he didn't believe that that was possible for him. So he made a conservative choice, instead he got a safe job as an accountant and when I was 12, he was let go from that safe job. I learned you can fail at what you dont want so you might as well take the chance on doing what you love." -Jim Carrey

I was shopping in Jersey when I came across these salmon colored adidas. I thought, these are amazing but ehhh I don't know. I walked to the adidas to store and saw this windbreaker that was the same salmon color and was like yup, I'm getting this and then going back to get those sneakers. Also, thelinebyk has officially become my go-to for bodysuits. I could wear it and only that for forever.
