Your Weekend Pick-Me-Up Starts at Home

Every now and then all of us could use an infusion of positivity in our lives.  Surrounding ourselves with awesomeness and reminders of our awesomeness is a new trend that more of us should embrace!

I looked through pages and pages of Urban Outfitter’s home goods to find these inspiring gems!

While coffee is a great way to inspire good vibes in the morning, a pillow could help as well!

When you’re standing in front of the mirror in the morning after waking up, a time when you’re you’re most visually vulnerable, a bath mat compliment couldn’t hurt!

Designer Styles to Add to your Wardrobe this Summer

Creating your wardrobe is like planning a party.  Think of your tops, your jeans, your shoes, your bags as guests!  To get the best party, you need a mixture of guests.  The social extraverted ones bring everyone together and the introverted ones provide an equilibrium to all the talking and excitement.  You need the talkers and the listeners.  In your wardrobe, you need the loud statements and the subtle beauties.  When you’re wearing jean shorts and a neutral henley top, all you need are a few loud statement pieces like hoop earrings or a diamond necklace to get that perfect party equilibrium!

Keep your Look Cute, Even in the Rain!

Screen Shot 2016-03-12 at 6.20.01 PM

Are rainy days getting you down? The thought of dressing up for a Saturday night out on the town when the rain is pouring down harder than the Niagara Falls, putting on that little black dress and high heels may seem less than appealing.  But a rainy day doesn’t have to destroy your style.  When in doubt, go with pink! A pink raincoat and a pink umbrella will keep your look fresh no matter how many puddles you have to stomp through.

If a dress isn’t in your forecast, try wearing a pair of black skinny ripped jeans.  They’ll look chic, edgy, and keep your legs warm in the cold.  Take the attention away from the rain by wearing a pair of shiny silver rain boots.

If you’re an optimist like me, dress the way you want, and then when you’re cold, think about how it could be worse.  Growing up with snow taught me to appreciate any other kind of weather that is not snow! So when it’s raining and you’re kind of cold because you wore a tank top with a light sweater instead of a coat, just think about how much colder you would be if it were snowing outside!

Just remember, your best looks will come from meshing style and comfort with confidence. When you’re standing outside slightly cold in the rain, just remember how hot you look.

Summer Trend Alert: Pink

A few weeks ago I went browsing through Nordstrom.  I ended up in the dressing room with five items, four of which where pink.

My favorite was by far this body-forming dress in the most beautiful shade of bright pink.  The cut is refreshingly modest with sleeves, a high-neck, and a respectable knee-length.

I tried on a long pink vest, and while it was cute in theory, making a decent outfit out of it seemed a bit difficult!  And while the patterned dress had a slight Diane von Furstenberg thing going for it…it was just too much pattern on me.

Stick with solid pink, and you’ll be in the clear!

5 New Years Resolutions you’ll Love Keeping

Every year people make resolutions that they know subconsciously they’ll never keep long term.  These resolutions seem to be more of a timing game.  A successful resolution usually means that you kept it for at least a month.  But what if you could make resolutions that you’d want to keep all year? Well here are five that I think you’ll want to keep for more than a month!

1. Make the resolution that you have to have at least one happy hour with a friend once a week.  A margarita here and there or a dirty martini, can be just what the doctor ordered! or not…

2. Exercise.  Yes I know that not everyone likes this New Years resolution but it doesn’t have to be bad.  Exercise can include dancing, rock climbing, even shopping…after all you are walking around and hopefully carrying heavy bags.

3. Be more social.  To do this you just have to develop FOMO: Fear Of Missing Out.  Don’t let 2015 pass you by without celebrating it to your fullest!

4. Make the resolution to read more.  Now before you boycott this one, here’s a list of books that will make you want to read: Fifty Shades of Grey, The Glass Castle, Unorthodox, and Brain on Fire (you can look forward to Dakota Fanning playing the lead character of the book in the 2016 movie).

5. Experiment with your style.  Rip your jeans, paint your nails pastel green, go crazy with chunky jewelry, or wear a pair of over-the-top oversized sunglasses.  Open your mind to mixing and matching your clothing to create new looks.

Happy New Year!
