Interview with Voyage LA Mag #TrailBlazers 1024 556 samantha

Interview with Voyage LA Mag #TrailBlazers

A few weeks ago I had the honor of being interviewed by Voyage LA Mag as part of their #ValleyTrailblazers series. I was so excited when they reached out to me for the opportunity to tell part of my story, my goals, and my inspiration. When they told me that their goal is to help hard-working, inspiring people tell their stories authentically and in their own words, I said count me in! Below is the article published on their website. Give it a read and let me know what you think!

Today we’d like to introduce you to Samantha Skelton.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.

I’m an LA native – born and raised! I’ve come to realize how rare that is with the industry that I’m in. Aside from running this blog, I’m also an actor and screenwriter.

I had wanted to start a blog for the longest time, but just never had time in college. I majored in Screenwriting at California State University, Northridge. College was an amazing experience for me and taught me so much. As soon as I graduated, I pursued everything I’m passionate about with full speed. That meant acting, screenwriting, and starting my blog.

I finally landed on The Constant Creative because I feel like that’s how much of my life is. I’m constantly doing something– writing a new script, collaborating with others to create short films, diving into new books, always pushing myself in some new direction, and for the longest time, I also had an Etsy shop.

Has it been a smooth road?

I’ve always had that entrepreneurial spirit about me — I made a powerpoint presentation when I was 8 years old for my parents about why I should be allowed to go around to my neighbors selling Christmas stationary! So, I think I was bound to embark on other ventures like this someday, ha!

But, of course, nothing is ever easy. I’m constantly learning new things, always evolving. I don’t think I will ever stop learning in any area.

When I started my blog, it was in conjunction with my Etsy shop. I had an Etsy shop since 2013 where I sold handmade typewriter quote cards and I really thought creating my own website/blog would help business for my Etsy shop. Eventually, I learned that I was being pulled in too many directions, and if I had to pick… my energy was better spent on the things I’m most passionate about. This year, I closed my Etsy shop to focus on my acting but I still love having my blog. It’s a great way to connect with other like-minded women, meet new people, and learn new things.

My advice for other young women that want to start their own blog or business, or maybe who are hesitating to go after something they want is just to START. Just begin. The only way you will know if something is right for you or not is to try it out. It’s not the end of the world if you go in another direction. Also, don’t be so hard on yourself. As long as you’re taking action somehow, you’re forward moving.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into The Constant Creative story. Tell us more about the business.

I started The Constant Creative to ignite a fire in people and leave them feeling more inspired than when I found them. I also started it to connect with other creative people in the online community. We all leave a legacy, whether it’s on the big screen or tucked away on the internet through a little blog. I truly love that one is not more significant than the other.

For good reason, society often focuses more on the problems rather than the opportunities that exist, because the problems need to be solved. However, we’d probably also benefit from looking for and recognizing the opportunities that women are better positioned to capitalize on. Have you discovered such opportunities?

Something I talked about on my Instagram recently was the idea of an abundance mindset vs. a scarcity mindset. I think so often women are viewed as being standoff-ish towards other women or the media pits women against each other. I see so much opportunity for women to share the wisdom they’ve learned so far and then collaborate to make something great. Everything is not a competition.

Reflecting on Christmas + My Wish for the New Year 1024 668 samantha

Reflecting on Christmas + My Wish for the New Year

I took a needed rest from writing blog posts and didn’t stress about posting on social media. It’s nice to take time to relax the mind and not be so busy. Christmas is by far my all-time favorite holiday. As soon as Thanksgiving is over I’m in full on Christmas mode and it genuinely makes me so happy. My spirits are 100% up!

It’s also that time of year that I watch The Family Stone 1 billion times. My favorite movie, with an all-start cast that will make you laugh ‘til you cry and pull at your heartstrings. Go watch it immediately if you haven’t yet and it will be your new favorite film!

This Christmas my family took it slow and it felt so nice to spend time together without running around. My Uncle Mark from South Carolina usually comes out so I was bummed he couldn’t make it this year, but he was with us in spirit! Our Christmas tree looked a little different this year, due to the craziness of the fires we never got around to decorating it like we normally would. But I actually love how simple it was this year! Then, my Dad unfortunately crashed on his mountain bike recently and hurt his back. We didn’t do much on Christmas Eve or Christmas except go out to dinner and again, it was so great to take it slow. We had a wonderful Christmas at home enjoying each other’s company and watching Hallmark movies.

Some of our Christmas Traditions:

  • Baking German Butter Cake (this recipe has been passed down for many generations on my grandfather’s side. It’s unique in it’s almond flavor but similar to a coffee cake, though better if you ask me) We usually make a few batches throughout December
  • Cinnamon Rolls for Christmas Eve morning
  • Church and Christmas Eve dinner at a local Italian Restaurant. We’ve been doing this for years and it feels like home when we finally sit down to eat
  • This has become sort of a funny “tradition,” if that: my Dad buys everyone stocking stuffers from rite-aid without fail every year haha. We started making fun of him, teasing that that’s the only place he gets stocking stuffers from and now it’s a thing!
  • Taking a photo of all of us on Christmas day which is usually the last photo of the year before I get pictures printed out to put in our family album. I’ve talked about this before on the blog, but it’s so important to me to preserve memories because when we’re older do you actually think we’re going to go back on “the cloud” (Which may or may not exist) and look at pictures when we were 20? I highly doubt it and everything will be lost. SO this is my way of making sure that doesn’t happen haha.

My Wish for the New Year

While there are always crazy drivers and people that resemble the Grinch around Christmas, for the most part everyone is in good spirits. I love that. I love that for the whole month of December, everyone is generally really happy and excited about giving to their friends and family. Excited to soak up that special time with loved ones. Full-hearted as they drive around looking at Christmas lights feeling so full of life.

My wish is that the Christmas spirit will be carried with us throughout the year. And the only way that’s going to happen is if we are present with ourselves and mindful about keeping the peace within ourselves and giving that to others. Not dwelling on the negative, but focusing on the positive and sending that positivity into the world.

How can you carry that Christmas spirit with you this year? Comment below and tell me one way!

Reflecting on my birthday: 24 lessons in 24 years
Reflecting on my 24th birthday: 24 lessons I’ve learned 713 1024 samantha

Reflecting on my 24th birthday: 24 lessons I’ve learned

I remember thinking on my 22nd birthday that I was finally getting older, “but imagine what 24 will feel like.” For some reason 24 sounds so much older! There’s a younger feeling about being 21, 22, or even 23. But despite all that I am EMBRACING 24 and I’m the kind of person that feels like everything gets better with age!

Well Scorpio season is among us! Scorpios are known to be the most “secretive” of the signs, and while I don’t like to spill my heart out completely on the internet I do love myself a good deep conversation (or in this case, blog post). I thought it would be fun to reflect on some simple lessons I’ve learned in my 24 years of life. Comment below and tell me if you can relate to any of these life lessons!

  1. Sometimes something we didn’t think we wanted turns out to be the greatest gift.Funny story to start this out: my brother was born premature and my parents spent weeks with him in the hospital. I was used to being the only child so when they finally brought him home I said, “I don’t like him. Can you take him back?” Well, flash forward 22 years and he’s pretty great if I do say so!
  2. Don’t be afraid to fail. In this interview, my good friend Lexy said she feels like failure doesn’t exist and rather everything is just a learning curve. I love that.
  3. Be kind, be mindful of what you say to others, be humble, be a nice person. “I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” –Maya Angelou. Sometimes I haven’t forgotten what hurtful things people have said to me. And I don’t doubt that I’ve said something that hurt someone. But if we can be more mindful of how we come off to people, of how our words or actions affect people, I think we should try our hardest. Being nice doesn’t make you naïve, fake, or a pushover, it just means you care how you make other people feel.
  4. It’s okay if you realize people don’t have a place in your life anymore. This has been a huge learning lesson for me over the years. I always felt a personal conflict with issues like this; wanting to be nice and not hurt anyone, yet also staying true to myself in knowing that someone doesn’t align with who I am as a person. Follow that inner voice. You might make mistakes, but everyday things will become more and more clear
  5. Take time to be interested in your Grandparents and spend time with them. They’re gone sooner than we think. My Grandma passed away a few months ago, and that marks the last living grandparent I had. I deeply cherished every one of my grandparents and I only wish I had more time to spend with my Mom’s parents who passed away when I was much younger. See you on the other side.
  6. Hustle with heart…but not always. Taking time to pause and reflect is often just as powerful as being busy.
  7. Follow your heart. I’ve always been a firm believer of this when navigating life, careers, love, friendships, you name it. Don’t let the pessimists get to you. Doing what’s right isn’t always easy and what’s easy isn’t always right but your heart will help you navigate that. I find that somewhere along the line your heart and your mind work together.
  8. Preserve your memories. Keep a journal, print out your photos and put them in an album, take video! I’ve learned too many times that technology is temporary and photos and videos get lost along the way. In a way, our own memory is temporary too. I recently realized that gone are the days when people walk around with the big hefty home video cameras and that makes me a little sad. No one is truly preserving the videos they take. I don’t know about you but I want to look back on my life when I’m 90.
  9. Be a rebel, take chances, create your own path. In 2012 I Facebook messaged Drake Doremus who directed one of my favorite all-time movies that made me want to be an actress and writer/director called Like Crazy. I asked him some advice and he gave me the most honest answers I will always remember. Here’s exactly what he said in response, caps and all. “WATCH A LOT OF MOVIES AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART. DON’T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER AND DO WHATEVER YOU WANT ALWAYS. BE A REBEL.” Thanks for responding to a random stranger, Drake.
  10. Sometimes figuring out what you DON’T want to do can you lead you to clarity for your true purpose. During my first year of college I was still getting clear on what I really wanted to do in life. It was a time of change and growth and coming into who I was as a person. I still felt mildly embarrassed to admit that I wanted to act and I hid behind my love for writing. I ended up doing an internship at Warner Brothers for MadChance Productions and it was a great experience. It taught me so much and oddly enough I learned so much about what I definitely didn’t want to do. I did not want to be a producer’s assistant and sacrifice my soul. I did not want to be a script supervisor or editor or PA etc. the list goes on. However, one night when I got the chance to be a PA on set I learned that it would kill me if I didn’t take the chance to act. I remember looking at the actors while I was a PA and thinking, “I would give anything to trade places with you right now.” It hit me like a ton of bricks that it would be sad if I lived my whole life with that feeling and vowed not to do that.
  11. It’s okay to be both introverted and extroverted. I like to go out and have drinks with my friends and be social but I also really like being alone and making lists and reading a good book. Don’t feel like you have to fit a mold of anything or anyone, just be yourself.
  12. Be mindful of who and what you put your energy into. If it’s not being reciprocated or you feel like it adds negativity to your life, let it go.
  13. The sound of your dogs snoring will make everything fade to the background. Really, what’s better than coming home and snuggling up to my dogs and hearing them sleep so soundly. (cheesy, I know. But 100% the truth).
  14. Study your craft diligently, be driven, have laser focus. The people that do this, no matter what industry you’re in, are already a step ahead of those who put half effort into things.
  15. Social media is not real life. I’ll say it again…SOCIAL MEDIA IS NOT REAL LIFE. (check out this video that explains this perfectly). Man, social media is such a love hate thing for me. I know we’ve all had our days when we wish we had what was on the other side of the screen. But remind yourself that 9/10 what’s on the other side of that screen looks a whole lot different in real life. I still believe that social media can be used for positive things, but I’ve learned to check myself in the comparison game online.
  16. Don’t be afraid to be ahead of the game. I’ve always had that entrepreneurial spirit about me (and I’m sure so many of you reading this do, too!) I started my Etsy shop back in 2013 and no one my age was really doing that. Not because they couldn’t but I just think no one my age really had an interest in doing that at the time. Part of me felt embarrassed to talk about the fact I had an Etsy shop at that time and I’ve learned it’s okay to stand out of the crowd. Be confident in your ventures.
  17. Just begin. The hardest part about doing the work is just sitting down and starting.
  18. Actions speak louder than words. Plain and simple.
  19. Anxiety can be paralyzing. I’ve struggled a lot with anxiety over the past couple years. I don’t have many answers here, but I’ve learned to breathe and look at the bigger picture.
  20. Deep conversations are the best way to connect with someone. I don’t know if I’ve learned this or if I was born this way but Lord knows I love to have deep conversations with people. Deep, meaning more than small talk. What makes you tick, what do you dream about, what do you think shaped you into who you are, etc. So if you’re ever having a day when you want to talk, head over to Instagram and you know where to find me!
  21. Speak with confidence about what you love. I wrote an entire blog post on this and it’s really a huge lessons I’ve learned over the years.
  22. Going out of your comfort zone helps you grow as a person. It can be as simple as going up to someone at an event and having a conversation, or joining a new community, or applying for a new job. That little pang of fear or sickness you feel when you’re doing something new…you’re growing! I wrote a blog post about how joining this network of women helped me out of my comfort zone and truly helped me grow as a person.
  23. True friendships are hard to come by. True friendships are a two way street, not one a one lane highway. They are empathetic, they care deeply about you just as you do for them, they never let anything get in the way, they love you for you. Remember, quality over quantity. I look at some of the friendships I’ve had for over 10 years and there’s nothing like a love for a person like that.
  24. You can’t control what will happen in your life. This is something I still struggle with all the time. I worry about the “what ifs” and it’s a constant reminder that I have to give up control and focus only on the factors I can control.

Changing Leaves in Asheville

My Mom and I took a southern fall trip back to Columbia, SC to visit my Uncle and then we drove a couple hours to Asheville, NC! I had never been there before and it’s been years since my Mom or Uncle went so we made the drive! We couldn’t wait to see the changing leaves and soak up every moment of the fall season in the south!

First, I will say that I was so happy to experience a crisp fall! It was in the hundreds when we left Los Angeles, so it was drastically different weather haha. Just a week prior in South Carolina it has been so hot though, we actually didn’t think it was going to be cold at all and we were a little bummed. When we got to Asheville though it was only about 50 something degrees! I wished I had packed a few more warmer clothing options but I was so happy it was cold enough to feel all warm and snuggled up.

We only spent 48 hours there and I’d love to do a trip itinerary if you guys are interested! We loved our bed and breakfast that we stayed in and I have so many cute pictures of the place!

Our second day in Asheville, we drove up the Blue Ridge Mountain to see some of the leaves. I’ll be honest with you…it was a little disappointing. The leaves weren’t as popping with color as they’d been in years past and the visitor’s center people confirmed this. They actually said on a scale of 1 to 10 as far as leaf color goes, this year was at a low 3 haha. But I will say, there were patches that we caught along the way driving through the Blue Ridge and it really was breath taking because we just don’t get that color here but it came in waves. The few pictures of the beautiful leaves I got were gorgeous and I wanted to stand there all day looking at the view. When we did get out to take some pictures, it was freezing. My fingers were numb trying to press the button on my camera but it was worth it!

Fall bucket List
The Ultimate Fall Bucket List: 23 Things I’m Dying to Do This Season 666 1000 samantha

The Ultimate Fall Bucket List: 23 Things I’m Dying to Do This Season

I’m embracing fall with everything I’ve got this year, so I thought it would only be fitting to do a fall bucket list. I live for the holidays and October through January are my favorite months to relish in everything that makes my heart content.

Recently I was writing in The 52 Lists Project: A Year of Weekly Journaling Inspiration and it asked me to write down everything I love about fall. I wrote that I love feeling cozy inside and out, I embrace the idea of hygge, I love that Scorpio season is approaching, I love tradition, and I love that fall brings a season of wonder, change, comfort, and balance.

This fall in particular I am embracing my wanderlust by taking a trip to Asheville, North Carolina at the end of October that I’m SO excited for. I’ll definitely do some blog posts about that trip so stay tuned. But this season I’m also embracing the idea of growth and development not only internally but also within my creative projects (like the short film I’m making with my brother) and I’m championing the cliché idea that fall makes us want to try new things and be cozy while doing it.

So without further ado, here’s my fall bucket list AKA everything I’d love to do this season

  1. Bake a pie
  2. Play in the leaves
  3. Go apple picking
  4. Go through a corn maze
  5. Decorate Pumpkins
  6. Host a Friendsgiving
  7. Take a scenic fall foliage drive
  8. Go to a football game and tailgate
  9. Watch Hocus Pocus
  10. Make a homemade fall-inspired coffee drink
  11. Make a gratitude list
  12. Roast pumpkin seeds
  13. Carve Pumpkins
  14. Find a new flannel
  15. Have a fall photoshoot
  16. Go to a fall festival
  17. Find the perfect fall-inspired nail color
  18. Get a new notebook
  19. Snuggle by the fire
  20. DIY my Halloween costume
  21. Find the perfect fall sweater
  22. Read an inspiring book
  23. Create a new fall-inspired coffee mug design for my Etsy shop

If you’re in the Los Angeles area like I am, check out this list of must-do things during fall in LA.

What’s on your fall bucket list? Comment below and tell me, I’d love to hear from you!

Morning Habits that Will Inspire You to Create
5 Morning Habits that Will Inspire You to Create 500 726 samantha

5 Morning Habits that Will Inspire You to Create

My morning routine is pretty simple and I’ll admit, you’re not going to see anything mind-blowing on this list that you probably haven’t heard of before. Simplicity is key for me, especially in my morning routine. I learned that the more intentional I was about my mornings and the more I stick to them this way, I was more inspired to write, brainstorm new ideas, and do what I love to do best: create. So here are 5 healthy morning habits I’ve gotten into a routine of doing that inspire me to create.

Create before you Consume

AKA don’t be on your phone first thing in the morning. I used to wake up and check my phone in bed while my eyes were barely open. Not only did that start to strain my eyes sometimes, but it would either get me stressed right away if I looked at how many emails I had or it was a big distraction because I would start scrolling through Facebook and Instagram, and let’s face it, there’s nothing that interesting on there so early in the morning. “Create before you Consume” was actually something I heard Julie Solomon say over a year ago when I tuned into one of her webinars. It really hit home for me because I realized, I know that my mind is more alert and fresh in the mornings. That’s when I do my best writing. But being able to create was being overshadowed by everything else I was consuming. It’s hard to come up with an original idea when you’re flooded by the ideas of everyone else. This is something I’ve really tried not to do and it’s worked so well this past year! For me creating before I consume means I don’t read other blogs, scroll on social media, read another screenplay, etc. before I write my own blog post, a page in my own screenplay, etc. the list goes on. I usually keep my phone on silent until I’ve finished writing and drinking my coffee.

Morning Pages

If you’re sick of me talking about my love for morning pages yet, you’re in for a treat haha. Morning Pages for me (3 handwritten pages of whatever comes to mind) makes me feel so grounded and ready to attack the day. It’s the ultimate dump and jump—dump out everything that might be weighing on you, stressing you out, or even positive things that might just be clogging up your brain and then jump into your day with a freer peace of mind. Sometimes I read a few pages of The Artists Way before writing these pages, which is where I heard about this in the first place! Doing my morning pages gets my creative juices flowing and sometimes I come up with my best ideas for my projects during these pages. So inspiring!

The routine of coffee or tea

For me, this is a part of my routine that I covet. I love my mornings so much. It’s “me” time and I love to sit and drink a few sips of my coffee with my dogs snuggled up near me and enjoy that time. Sometimes I think it’s less about actually needing that caffeine (although let’s be real I am a coffee fanatic) and more about the routine of enjoying my cup of brew. Having a part in my routine that I do without fail brings more intention and consciousness into my everyday life, and furthermore it inspires me to go create something I love.  You may not be a coffee or tea drinker and that’s fine, but find something that you will do every day and just sit there for a few minutes taking it all in. We won’t always have mornings to ourselves so I like to cherish that.

Get dressed before you create

Whether you work from home or you’re finding time for your morning routine before heading to work, I find that getting dressed makes you feel mentally prepared to get down to business. Of course, I still like to be comfortable and most days you’ll probably find me in workout clothes regardless if I’m working out, but staying in my pajamas until noon does not do me justice. Getting dressed inspires me to be conscious that it’s time to make those ideas a reality.

Start Creating

Aren’t we talking about things to do in the morning that inspire you to create? Yes, but it’s sort of like that saying, “to begin, begin.” Like I said before, I do my best work in the morning. It’s when my brain is most alert and I show up and do the work in the mornings more so than any other time in the day. Sometimes just starting in on a project can lead to more ideas, momentum, or creative clarity. There is no better time to start than “now” because tomorrow will lead to never.

Authenticity at BeautyCon
The Beauty in Authenticity: Notes from BeautyCon 1000 667 samantha

The Beauty in Authenticity: Notes from BeautyCon

Celebrating the Uninhibited You:

I recently went to my first-ever BeautyCon in LA and wasn’t surprised to see that many of the brands there had a message to send. A powerful one. One that coincided with what BeautyCon is all about. The crazy thing is just one month ago I wasn’t even sure what BeautyCon’s message truly was. Turns out, authenticity at BeautyCon is huge.

When I found out a friend got us passes to BeautyCon I was ecstatic! Something you may not know about me is how much I actually love makeup and skin care. When I was little I would watch how my mom took care of her skin and was always so curious to see all the different products she would use. As I got older it grew into curiosity about what I like and started experimenting with different kinds of makeup. To this day, we are still obsessed with Bobbi Brown, not much has changed from 10 years ago (except that we are also obsessed with Beauty Blenders now). But because I’m sure you know by now I’m not a beauty blogger per-say, I have more to share here today than my favorite products.

authenticity at beautycon

 

Beauty in the Wild

I hopped on the internet to find out about BeautyCon before going and what I discovered was more than their line-up of guest speakers. Moj Mahdara, CEO of BeautyCon, wanted to create an environment where digital content creators had a platform to express their individuality—especially in a world where the influence on young people is so important in today’s world. Her diverse background fueled the drive to continue to create diversity in the beauty and digital world. In an interview with Forbes Elyssa Starkman, Head of Content at BeautyCon, said “At Beautycon we believe it’s more important to have the space to do-you, to interpret those how-tos however you want.”

When I entered the convention center at BeautyCon, I was greeted with a visual fusion of the beauty and digital worlds that reflected exactly what I had read before going. Their Beauty in the Wild poster stood loud and proud:

“Beauty in the Wild is a call to celebrate the uninhibited you—to feel free and bold in expressing all the different elements of your individuality. At this year’s BeautyCon festival in Los Angeles, we invite you to join our community of rule breakers, risk takers, and innovators to be untamed, fierce, and fearless. It’s an exploration into the power of beauty through self- expression.”

The How-You Voice vs. How-To

More than anything, BeautyCon celebrates being your most authentic self in whatever way that looks like. How you define beauty for yourself, and how you choose to utilize makeup and skincare is your own individual expression of power and creativity. I didn’t see many booths talking about the latest “trends,” rather I saw brands showing young people, “here’s what we have to offer and we’d love to see how you make it your own.” BeautyCon makes a conscious move into the “how-you” voice and away from the “how-to.” They want you to celebrate the uninhibited you and come together to celebrate the diverse interpretations of beauty. Authenticity at BeautyCon is huge.

I left that day feeling like there was such a force behind the message that there’s so much beauty in being true to who you are and being your most authentic self. As I walked around the convention, I felt confident in my own skin and had a feeling that most people there did too because of the encouraging environment to just “do you.”

Authenticity in Social Media

BeautyCon’s message of being authentic speaks volumes not only in the beauty world, but in the digital world as well. So much of what BeautyCon is about is fusing the glam world with the online space. I hear this all the time as a blogger to be your most authentic self, but it’s so true and it’s something I hope we can all do and find genuine ways to express that. In this social media world, it can get confusing and hard to not be influenced by other people or content. Something I always tell myself is that if I can’t tell my closest friends a room full of people that I truly like something or I’m advocating for something than I’m not being my authentic self. There are so many ways to look at it, but this was a way to dip our toes into the conversation of authenticity.

Express Yo’ Self

Anyone else have that song pop into their head and want to break out in a little dance when they read that? Haha. But really, today I’d like to carry on their message of being your uninhibited self, of being true to who you are, and I challenge everyone (including myself, because we’re all in this together) to find ways to genuinely express who you are. Say it loud and proud!

Tell me a few ways below that you stay true to who you are! Maybe even let me know what beauty means to you! Scroll to the bottom to leave a comment!
