Good morning my lovelies! 🙂

Today I’m feeling inspired by the beautiful koi fish. In the Japanese culture, the koi fish is highly respected and closely intertwined with the Japanese national identity. The koi fish is an emblem of luck, prosperity, and good fortune. I personally believe that in life we make our own luck.

The koi fish is a perfect example in the journey of making its own luck, a specimen known for always continuing to push forward. The koi fish is always moving upstream, never just settling for “going with the flow.” Their character is connected with strength in the face of adversity, never giving up hope, owning their purpose through great perseverance.

I’m a huge fan of Rachel and Jun on YouTube, they are an adorable couple with so much to share. You should totally check out their YouTube as I believe you’ll become fans as well! 😉 Rachel recently did a Modeling expedition for the amazing fantasy gown designer JoEllen Elam you should totally check her out on instagram, her designs are sensational!

Watching Rachel do this photoshoot made my inner child light up with the magic and wonder of being a fantasy princess, even for just a day…granted I’m a magical unicorn spreading a little sunshine every day! 😉


Kuao Kokoro Koi - Blue Bonnet
I also wanted to share this app, called Zen Koi. The app is very relaxing and for me almost meditative in nature. It is available for both iPhone and Android. The app itself is free, but it does include in-app purchases.

I want to leave you with this question, how can you be like the koi fish and make your own luck today?

    1. Have you used the zen koi app? I use it sometimes just to give myself a few moments of relaxation. It’s very peaceful. 😉

  1. very interesting! I guess it is just a play on words, cause i don’t believe in luck….I believe our efforts and attitudes moves us in position for great things to happen. Nevertheless, I got the take away…Keep it moving regardless of the currents that try to push you backwards or down…thanks for sharing
