Once upon a time, I was the top hand model at @fordmodelsny, somewhere around ten years ago. I had a huge billboard on Broadway & Houston streets of my hands holding a @katespadeny (🖤rip🖤) bag. Then I booked a photo shoot in Connecticut in which the client dismissed me early stating, to my agent, that I had “busted up old lady hands,” yes, exact wording. My reign as top hand model abruptly ended that day. I do have a lot of lines called hyperlinearity of the palms, which I had always thought beautiful. Even as a kid, classmates would marvel at my hands, reading the lines as child fortune tellers and interpreting what they meant. Filming my hands for my own stuff now reminded me of this strange day that my hands were ripped by this client, my beautiful graceful hands, that I still love. Well you know what? I think My hands still got it, even at 10 years later. Do these look like “busted up old lady” hands to you (which is a ridiculous thing to say as there is nothing inherently ugly about old lady hands, but I won’t get started on the misogynistic, and ageism implications in this statement)? Anyway, what I originally meant to say, here’s my new goddess casual arm warmers, now up in my shop. Link in bio. ✨
I finally had time to beat my face with some make up and dress up today and I feel like a @jacquelindeleon painting 😆😍 I think it's pretty safe to say I'm absolutely stoked with what @hollysharpe.hair chose this time 😍 we also finally got to even the length out which I'm super happy about because it's been forever since it's been this long and even, Holly is a pure saint I don't know what I'd do without her 😇

Soooooo WHAT WOULD BE POSSIBLE IF YOU:
⚡Had extra HOURS in your day to dedicate to your art, creating a new project or offer, or maybe just...having a bit more FUN and free time
⚡Spent more time creating than consuming
⚡Didn't always feel rushed, behind, playing catch-up from the minute your feet hit the floor in the a.m.
⚡Had less anxiety about measuring up to what everyone ELSE is doing, and the confidence to stay in your lane and do what feels fun and easy to YOU
⚡Weren't always searching for "answers" to your "problems" outside of yourself and instead had TRUST in YOU
⚡Didn't always have itchy fingers to open an app on your phone and start scrolling the void at every lull in your day (hello connection and conversation killer, amirite?!)
⚡*infomercial voice* AND MOOOORE!
I've been observing, and changing, my social media and iPhone habits over the last few months....and those are only a FEW of the benefits I've noticed.
Taking an entire DAY (OR MORE) off the internets always leaves me with this expansive, abundance, space-filled feeling like I have time to THINK and to create and do ANYTHING I WANT and it's honestly SO GOOD.
But also...taking all the days off the internets is not something I actually want to do, so I'm more interested in how to create those vibes EVERY DAY, while still chillin on FB and the 'gram (don't call it that.)
And I wanna share that with you, friends.
So I've put together a free 5-day mini course (I called it a challenge before but tbh that felt off-putting to me lol) where I will share my practices for using social media (and I guess the entire internets) in a way that is supportive to creativity, fun, and connection instead of being like...a drain, a burden, somewhere we get annoyed or distracted or drown our doubts in other people's successes (bc that feels GREAT, said no one ever.)
ANYWAY, I could literally go on about this topic forever, but if you DARE to join me in getting honest/curious about your social media usage, I invite you to join my free mini-course - content drops on Monday, Oct 22nd!!
⚡Details: https://ainsliegreig.com/social-media-awareness-experiment/ (or link in bio!)
Y'all! I'm super excited for my upcoming free challenge. I spent most of the day writing content and creating worksheets for each day and let me tell you, it's magical. Like Sally Owens blowing on a candle to light it kind of magical.
I want to to join the challenge. Yes, YOU. If you're reading this it's because you we meant to. I fully believe that.
It's totally free and we start October 29. Oh, and you can choose any card deck you'd like. Beginners through experienced oracle card enthusiasts will LOVE this challenge.

“Do you think you’re really a witch???” The #1 question I get in my DMs. I’m actually blown at this, considering in order to dm me, you have to look at my page. YES I AM A WITCH. I DONT “think” I AM, I KNOW IT. Witchcraft is my business and a huge part of my religion. Now here’s a video of a spell example for a client before you dm and ask 😘
