The SD Voyager owes a huge debt to the incredible local community of influencers – from fashion bloggers to foodies – who put in countless hours of work uncovering hidden gems throughout Southern California. We’d like to introduce you to some of Southern California’s most gifted tastemakers and influencers below.

It feels GREAT to have had an uber productive week! 🙌🙌🙌 . The past couple of months I have experienced so much overwhelm surrounding the launch of my new business. 😳 . So I had to ask myself… . 1) Am I pursuing something that just isn’t right for me? I feel PASSIONATE about it, yet I haven’t been making any substantial progress. . 2) Am I self-sabotaging? Y’all, I’ve have truly dug deep to decide if this is the case. I’m convinced that, NO, I’m not! I have a dream and I believe in my heart this it is my God-given purpose! . 3) Am I simply not self-disciplined enough to do the hard stuff? Well, I’ve been on this planet 55 years and I have absolutely zero history of being lazy, unmotivated, or lacking the discipline to get work done. . Then WHAT? . OVERWHELM! . Sheer overwhelm. There are so many giant tasks in front of me that I simply didn’t know where or HOW to start. So instead, I would work on the “easy” things that didn’t help me towards my goals but kept me busy. And then I could say I’ve been working hard. And I have. But not on the RIGHT things. . This week I found my answer! 😍 (Actually, I thought of it a couple of months ago but didn’t pursue it until now). . I hired a very talented friend to be my business coach for the next 30 days. 💖And, OMGoodness! I’ve had incredible clarity each day when I begin my work. . All my tasks are prioritized and scheduled… Spaced out over the next month or two in a way that doesn’t feel overwhelming!💪 . The funny thing is that I could easily coach someone else with the same problem I have. But I can’t coach myself!😜 . Sometimes, we have to admit we can’t do it on our own and reach out to others. 🤗 We don’t have to rely on them forever. Just long enough to establish a plan and get back on track. . Today I’m thankful for peace and clarity. And I’m so excited about watching my dreams come to life! . Are you dealing with overwhelm as well? DM me so I can encourage you!💕

Hi! Thank you for connecting with me!🙏🏼 With so many new faces here, I thought I’d introduce myself.👋🏼 . My name is Jeana. I’m originally from the Midwest (Ann Arbor & Chicago), but I’ve always been drawn to Cali. I live in San Diego with my hubby and our two boys, Adler & Aston. First and foremost comes family. My #1 focus is raising kind, healthy, happy boys who believe they can do/be anything, and are drawn to help others… . I’m a former corporate ladder climber turned #mompreneur & health activist. I love learning about health tips/tricks and my mission is to share & educate others, in hopes that we can create a cleaner, safer, healthier environment for future generations… . I am an allergy and MTHFR mom. I never imagined my health journey would lead me here, but I am grateful for the lessons, and am doing my best to look for the positives & pay it forward by sharing what I’m learning…I still have SO much to learn.✨ . What we put IN and ON our bodies matters, as well as the thoughts we allow. The way we spend our $ dictates what companies will do. We vote with our dollars every day. I believe in choosing ethical companies that are health focused and care about our environment… . I am focused on connecting with like minded individuals and empowering women. I mentor leaders and look to align with people who are into manifesting great things. I believe we can ALL be successful, and that mindset is everything… . At the end of the day, I am grateful. Grateful for the family and friends who have guided me AND challenged me. We grow from both, right?!! . Looking forward to getting to know you better!💗 . . . . #introduction #momonamission #thisisme

It’s so easy to get lost in your daily routine, in what’s become comfortable to you. But what happens when you sit back and think about your life? Are you happy? Are you living out your dreams? . . I work a job that doesn’t satisfy my creativity, which is why I created this account and why I travel, I need an outlet to share things I love with people with similar interests. . . I have a lust for life, I love adventure, and I want to show people that you don’t need to be rich or cross the seas to find beautiful places. Thy exist right in your hometown. La Jolla is one of those places I escape to. Beautiful street art, beaches, boutiques. It’s a vibrant seaside city that I fell in love with from the start. . . Where do you escape to?

Life is getting back to normal since our big scare this week ❤️ N is fine now and I am so grateful for everyone’s for support. – I did a live video on Facebook talking about all the things I learned from my experience and what I could do better, as an allergy parent. If you want to check that out, find me on Facebook as Lauren Saglimbene Fitness. – Between our car breaking down this week and the hospital visit, it has been really hard to get back into working out. It’s Thursday and this is the first day this week I am doing something. I just haven’t had it in me… – With my work schedule and the kids schedule, they didn’t match up with the baby’s schedule…she was fussy and tired. But I really wasn’t going to let anything stand in my way. I put her in the carrier and let her nurse while I finished up the weights portion. Then I slid her in the bassinet before the HITT portion. – After this hell week, if I can do it so can you. – I’m not better than you, more motivated than you or somehow different. I just have systems in place to make me successful with my fitness, no matter what happens, and I’ve practiced those systems over and over – Now, nothing really gets in my way. That’s how I can be back in amazing shape three months after having a baby. – ➡️➡️ Want help finding a fitness routine that’s unstoppable, no matter how crazy life is? Comment below and I’ll connect to see what ideas I have for you. – #allergymom #allergyawareness #foodallergies #foodallergyawareness #nutallergies #momof3 #inspireothers #inspiringwomen #inspiringmoms #lajollaca #sandiegomoms #militaryspouse #milspouseowned #milspouseblogger #fitnessinspiration #postpartumbody #momlifebelike #maybabies

Posing for pictures is probably one of the hardest things for me! I find myself always repeating the same poses and then I’m standing there in front of the photographer thinking “what else can I do now?” 🤔😧😨 . Influencers are not necessarily models! Actually most of the successful influencers today are just the girl next door! So they don’t have experience posing for pictures at first but of course with time they get really good at it for obvious reasons, practice makes perfect! . I remember feeling a little lost when I was taking this picture because I felt like there is not much you can change while seating but there is! This one turned out a little different and I even had one of the other influencers asking me “how did you put your legs for that photo?” and they did the same for theirs too! 👯‍♀️👯‍♀️👯‍♀️ . I’m so happy when I see us influencers inspiring and helping each other. We are definitely a great community! 💕 📸 by @jo.gone.wanderlusting . . . . . #photoshoot #myfirstphotoshoot #photoshooting #pigment #cabepartners #sandiegoinfluencers #sandiegoblogger #sdblogger #sandiegoliving #sandiegolife #sandiegolove #sandiegogram #wheresandiego #exploresandiego #sandiegofall #mysdphoto #sandiegoca #sandiegofun #socalblogger #fallootd #fallfashion #fallstyle #aboutalook #falltime #cuteclothes #f21xme #forever21 #express #h&m #urbanoutfitters

Today would have been my sweet beautiful mom’s 60th birthday! 🎉 . . Oli took these pictures of me on the boat ride we took to spread her ashes in 2014. (The last 2 pics in the series are from the zoo, one of her favorite spots, where I sprinkled more of her ashes the following week. Just carrying on her sense of humor 😆) . . For anyone who has listened to me talk about my mom—you know that our relationship was not harmonious. We had the classic, I love you but I don’t like you, dynamic. And there’s a lot of transgressions I have held onto that have seemed so entirely unfair for one human to do to another. A bag of baggage that has been increasingly hard to let go of. Memories that are carved only from my point of view. A feeling of being justified in my anger or resentment of how I grew up. . . Oli pointed out to me the other day how hard life is. Then he said, “Now imagine that you are your mom, and you have two kids, no money in the bank, a husband who you don’t feel connected to, and a frightening auto immune disease that no one is qualified to help you with. Are you so sure that you would have done a better job in her shoes?” My answer is no. I don’t think I could have done better. I probably would have done worse. . . So here’s the thing: whether your parent is alive or dead, we have to forgive them (this doesn’t mean we have to be around them or listen to their BS). We have to understand the context they were living in that led to whatever we believe was unacceptable about how they treated us. We have to let go of it. Not for them—for us. Because we deserve to remember our parents as their best. We deserve to carry the torch of their humanity and embody the best parts of them. Because they were and are incredible human beings. Their strength, their courage, their ability to wake up everyday plagued with whatever they’re plagued with and get the damn thing done. . . I love my mom with my whole ❤️ I keep her with me everyday and I’m learning to celebrate her and myself for the amazing feat of living and dying as human beings. And I hope if I ever find myself in her circumstances that I am able to execute my life with half of the strength she modeled.

Do you ever have those weeks where you just want to stay in bed all day and hide under the covers? I am having one of those weeks. Yesterday, I lost a very valuable, sentimental item and have no idea how or where it went. …………. I have also kind of hit the wall in terms of feeling like I have not found my tribe. In case you did not know, San Diego is the third city we have moved to and not known anyone since 2010. I sort of feel like I have been without a really stable support system for the last 8 years. Of course, I have my friends from back in the day and family, but the day-to-day local support has been missing for a while. I guess you could say I feel alone. ………. While I am not sure when I will find my peeps, I hope it is soon and in the meantime, I am just going to keep putting myself out there and showing “MORE LOVE.” …….. 📷 Thanks to the lovely @chasingbacklight …….. Day 28/30 of #junejourney2018 – LOVE . . . I’m joining in with @strongasamothersummit this month to share 30 pictures in 30 days of my #motherhoodjourney. I will be sharing some stuff that I have never shared before about what I have learned on this incredible ride that is #motherhood. . . . . #strongasamother #strongasamothersummit #realmotherhood #strongmom #strongwomen #realtalk #photochallenge #thirtydays #twinmom #momlife #momstrong #momstrength #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodrising #sandiegomom #sandiegoblogger #sandiegobloggerbabes #socalbloggerbabes #momoftwins #boymom #momof2boys #adventuresinmotherhood
