10 Tips to Get Your Life Together!

"We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell

Hey sweetie pies! It is Friday! I hope you all have had a great week! Last week and this week have been kind of crazy for me. (Like I thought I was going to have a quarter life crisis crazy...) But seriously, it got a little stressful for me mid-way through the week and figured I needed a serious regroup. So I sat down and thought of 10 things I needed to do to get my life together and I thought that it may work for you as well!

1. Set a time to get up everyday and stick to it!
This will help your body establish a routine and your body will thank you!

2. Set a time to go to bed every night and stick to it!
Sometimes this is even hard for me, especially since I am such a night owl. I also honestly believe that I am most creative at this time. But it is so important to give your body the rest that it needs. Once again, establishing a routine is one of the best things that you can do for your body.

3. Incorporate physical exercise into your daily routine. 
We can manage to squeeze everything into our routine but exercise huh? I have been terribly guilty of this. Luckily, my job (dance teacher) allows me to be physically active. Can't get to a gym? Try doing jumping jacks during the commercial breaks for Empire or Scandal, try taking the stairs instead of the elevator, try parking far away from the entrance at your office,.... other extracurricular activities..... I MEANT YOGA OR PILATES YOU GUYS! (you little nasties) anything to get the blood flowing and the heart pumping. :)

4. Plan your outfit the day before or a week in advance.
Doing this can easily cut down your time getting ready in half and keep you from feeling stressed in the am. It also keeps your closet from looking like a tornado ripped through there.

5. Get a planner.
I have spoken on this in a video post but I think this is beneficial for any and everyone. Whether you are just a student or a CEO. Trust me, it's a great investment.

6. Don't stress!
I really have to take my own advice on this one because I get worked up so easily. But stressing doesn't do anything for you, at ALL! So just don't do it.

7. Make time for YOU!
Make sure to take time for yourself. Whether that's reading a book, getting your nails done, (my fave) yoga, taking a nap whatever it is. Make sure you take the time to take care of yourself, and that's an order!

8. Set realistic short term goals and long term goals then keep track of them.
This keeps you from becoming complacent and stagnant. It also allows you to hold yourself accountable. It also reminds you to celebrate once you achieved your goals. I have a notebook where I write EVERYTHING that I want to do before I die, and I love it!

9. Don't be too hard on yourself.
You are only human! Don't be so hard on yourself. Always remember to just try and be your best and as long as you do that, you always succeed.

10. Love GOD and yourself. 
I am not trying to push religion on anyone by no means. I personally feel that I have to have a relationship with God and to love myself. I always tell myself that I am special because I am a Child of God and I know I can't go wrong.

I hope this helped and inspired someone today. Have a great weekend!

As always, XO and Stay FAB! ~ Stormie

How to Make Metallic Work for your Office Wardrobe - Twirling in Rose Gold

"To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself." ~ Soren Kierkegaard

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Tuesday! One trend that I am loving for Spring is the metallic trend. I am spying it everywhere from shoes to clothing to accessories. I raved awhile back about my obsession with this skirt that I got from Charlotte Russe. I love it so much that I had to feature it again on here! For this particular look, I opted to for a more work appropriate ensemble. I paired it with this ruffle blouse that I got ages ago from New York and Company. Even though this piece is no longer available, I linked some ruffle blouses just as fabulous as they are affordable below.

To keep it business casual, I opted to pair it with a blazer and my fave booties. That way you are still covered but fashionable. You can totally make metallic work for the office by letting it be the focal point and pairing it with neutrals. That way you won't be going overboard, especial…

How to Style - B+W Striped Dress 3 of 3 Ways

"We must be willing to let go of the life we planned in order to have the life that is waiting for us." ~ Joseph Campbell
Hey hey sweetie pies I am excited to show you the third way that I styled this dress from Rainbow. I opted to wear it tunic style with a pair of jeans and strappy heels. If the length is too long you can opt to leave two or three buttons closed and tie the ends of the shirt into a knot. It helps you  pull off that easy casual look. You can easily create variations of this look by swapping a few things. You can easily swap out the heels for some flat mules for the perfect casual spring outfit. Or you swap out the jeans for long distressed shorts with sandals for sexy casual look. Even though I have styled this dress 3 ways, the options are really endless. Make sure to check out the 1st or 2nd way that I styled this dress. Which look is your fave? 1, 2, or 3?! Leave your thoughts below I would love to hear!
