Acorns and Lemonade is a lifestyle blog for all the busy girls out there. With a focus on creativity, entrepreneurship, business building and goal setting we are here to help you live your bliss every single day.
What started as a blog about finding financial stability and freedom quickly became so much more than that. We still think that money is an incredibly powerful entity, but it should not control your life – we want to build businesses from places of creativity and passion. We want you to find our busy girl guides infinitely helpful in helping you to achieve success through following your passions.
In our blog pages you will find inspiration, words of wisdom, and some fun to help you balance your work and life as a young woman.
We believe that with consistent goal-setting and staying true to your values you can live a rich and successful intention-based life, and that all aspects of your life can flourish – with just the right amount of focus on each.
Basically, we love you all and want nothing more than to see you flourish as we all take this twenty-something journey together.
You may be thinking, though…
Why “Acorns and Lemonade”…
As millenials today we feel like we are all working to find balance and a sense of freedom from our day jobs, bills pressures and trying yo build lives and careers around our deepest passions.
Acorns and Lemonade is a reflection of the two necessary parts in everything we do that can help us achieve that – LEMONADE is for using what you have and making the best of any sitution, it is the positivity, the resourcefulness and the DIY in all of us. ACORNS embodies the need for putting small actions into place everyday through a driven sense of purpose and with excellent goal-setting skills and watching them grow.
With these two things we think we can all achieve greatness.
So, who put this all into motion?
I’m glad you asked. I’m Jessica, the Central-Victorian based blogger behind Acorns and Lemonade, the resource for busy girls trying to make a life surrounding their passions.
I graduated university at the end of 2013 as a pharmacist and now work full-time in community pharmacy. I realised early in my working career (as in 6 months in) that traditional 9-6 jobs are not for everyone and decided that I wanted to create something vastly different to help myself and other busy working girls find their passions, and create innovative creative businesses – either on the side or full time – to fuel their wonderful lives.
I believe in a lot of things. I believe in goal setting and hard work and 5AM alarms, I also believe in lazy Sunday mornings, watching movies as a family, building the house we will start a family in and making time for creative pursuits. I love my husband, my parents, my brother and my dog.
In order to balance my 46 hour work with the rest of my life I cram my free hours with projects, books, photos, walks, gardening, and fitness. Basically, if it isn’t in my planner then it doesn’t happen. I understand the struggles of work life balance and I started Acorns and Lemonade as an outlet for me to help with that balance but also as a guide for other graduates who could be feeling lost in the world and in search for something else.
With business ideas on my mind constantly, a love of blogging and a love of helping women if you want to connect with me please don’t hesitate. Follow our behind the scenes journey on Instagram and our obsessions on Pinterest.
