Today I enjoyed a lovely outing with my Mom, aunt, & cousin. We had chai lattes and talked about girl stuff. So fun, & I can’t wait to do it again!
I’m lucky enough to be a morning person. I’ve never had an issue with getting up early, in fact I rather enjoy it. I like being up while everyone else is asleep. I feel like I can get a lot of things done, & prepare myself for the rest of the day. However, when it’s a work day….Ugh.
My motivation is diminished in the morning when I have to go to work, knowing there is a long day ahead of me. So how do I keep my morning person happiness? Planning. I have five ways to help make my mornings a little bit smoother. This makes the rest of my day feel put-together, & I don’t dread my work day as much!
Audrey Hepburn is the ultimate style icon. She was beyond sophisticated, elegant, & beautiful. Even today, she is considered when making various style choices in the fashion world. There is so much we can still learn from her, so I thought I’d list a few ways you can channel Audrey in your daily life.
1. Bold Brows
2. Perfect Posture
4. Pinned Hair
8. Believe in Pink
10. Chocolate Cake
Even though I know it’s about to come to a close, I’m trying to ignore the fact that summer is ending. For many of us, the end of summer means the beginning of school or college. Confession: I actually love school. I’m slowly getting my Bachelor’s Degree, so for me college classes are a requirement. Growing up, I was that kid who loved back to school shopping. New supplies were my favorite thing to shop for. I also worked hard at school, which continues to this day (4.0 GPA, thank you very much!). But as I entered college I realized that the necessities of binders, colored pencils, & cute erasers just wouldn’t cut it anymore. Here are my class necessities!
Best of luck to all those going back! 🙂
Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend & Valentine’s Day! Mine was fantastic, & you can read about it here. Now, on to this post! Even though we are halfway through February, winter is in full swing. I always start off loving winter, then by the middle & end all I can think about is sunshine and the beach. Recently, the weather has been crazy! Over the weekend, the winds were atrocious, & we lost power five times. Tonight, we are suppose to get around a foot of snow. While I love getting snow, and being off from work, by now I’m just ready for warm weather.
The winter blues are really starting to set in. It makes me think of that Breakfast At Tiffany’s quote: “The blues are because you’re getting fat, and maybe its been raining too long. You’re sad, that’s all.” Just switch out raining for snowing, & the comparison is real.
So when the weather outside is frightful, my advice is to get comfy & cozy! Get some magazines or a good book to pass the time. This will also keep you from overindulging in snacks, which I tend to do when cooped up in the house. I find that coffee is a must on cold days. It helps me wake up, plus I enjoy my mornings more with a cup of coffee in hand. While I recommend staying in your pajamas or sweats, putting on makeup will help you feel more put together, even if you plan on staying in bed all day. Finally, snow days are the perfect time to catch up on your favorite Netflix shows & movies. Pick something set in the summer to help you beat those winter time blues!
