Instagram Self-Advertising

So some of you may know that I have 3 main accounts on Instagram @lotusgrapevine, @sarahmmusic & @lotusgphoto. My business account that has everything on it, my singing account and my photography business account. Self-advertising is probably my biggest pet peeve. It happens on all of my accounts and it very obvious too. I’ll inform everyone…

Dear 2017…

This year has been beyond amazing. I have become more of the person I never thought I could be. I’ve worked my hardest and I’ve discovered so much but 2017 also had a lot of fear. The fear of never knowing what will become of me. I am very confident in 2018 and I know…

Photography Business

Before I go on about my business details let me first shout out Anna Monette for taking the featured image I put for my cover! She is completely amazing and was able to bring my imagination to life. You can find her on Instagram, her photography business account is @annamonettephotos Let’s get to it! The…

Why Do I Write?

When I was a little girl, I didn’t spend my free days watching TV. I was either playing with my friends or by myself. The majority of my childhood was quiet, peaceful and beautiful. At least that’s how I made myself remember. I remember spending a lot of my time in my backyard which I…

Fine Arts. Why We Do It.

When I was a little girl I started dance, art and writing first. As I grew I found beauty in every Fine Art and as I went to camps, classes and auditions I finally realize that I am grounded. I no longer need to search endlessly for what I want to do with my life….

Thanksgiving & Turkey Trot Blog

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Comment below what you’re thankful for 🙂 I am doing an actual Blog of my day so far since I wasn’t able to create a Vlog on my YouTube account. This morning we went to downtown Austin for the Turkey trot and ran/walked 5 miles. There were people everywhere…

This Is For You…

To the ones who have ever bullied me, who have ever doubted me, who have ever hurt me. This is for you. To the ones who watched my every move just to point out everything I’m doing wrong, this is for you. To the ones who have cyberbullied me online and told me I was ugly…

Lies.

Hollywood stars have recently come out and shared their horrors about being sexually abused in the industry. Acting, singing, anything in the entertainment industry has so many perverts. The scary thing is they could be big producers and directors and agents that everyone could trust more than you. The reason all of these stars are…

Singing Nodes

Honestly, reality isn’t all fun and games when you need to deal with consequences of working your voice too much and too hard. I’m starting to gain a swollen feeling in my throat every time I sing, even if I’m singing normally and lightly, nothing extreme. A few days ago I had practiced belting and…

(O)bsessive (C)ompulsive (D)isorder

I’m in for a life of success, never giving up and non stop working on things I love to do. Must be great? I met someone the other day who says she wishes she were like me. And I laughed and explained to her everything I can’t do. She stood her ground. “So?” I want to…

Someday.

I watch people live their dream on TV, Instagram and YouTube all of the time. They’re free. I see videos of beautiful places, traveling hotels, oceans and lakes and views to make you cry. I want to be at that place in my life now. I can’t wait. I want to be free. Not to…

Hope

Hope: “She danced before she could walk. She sang before she could talk. She was a wild story teller and an Artist before she could even write. Those are what started this all. She was put in ballet at a young age…but didn’t practice. Yet she was the best one out there on the stage…
