5 Tips to Make you Feel Beautiful - Without Spending a Dime!

"The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are." ~ Joseph Campbell

Hey sweetie pies, happy Monday! It has been a beautiful day today and it got me to thinking about beauty in other things. Beauty in laughter, beauty in diversity, beauty from within. There are so many pressures from media and society to be their standard of 'beauty'. Women and men alike are subliminally told that in order to be beautiful we must look like this and dress like that. But ladies I want to share 5 things that will make you beautiful without putting on any makeup, going shopping or getting any plastic surgery. :)



1. Loving yourself
There is something so beautiful and special when a woman loves herself unconditionally. You begin to treat yourself better and respecting yourself. And with that, people around you will love and respect you or they can f*** off. I know that can sound a little harsh but it is definitely the truth. Believing that you are beautiful is the first step to being beautiful!

2. Being Confident
This will inevitably add a pep in your step and help find your inner glow! Confidence always radiates from within!

3. Sharing your Positive Light with Others
You will never dim your light by shining on someone else. Try spreading some positive energy and love to others. You will feel so much better after you do!

4. Smile Often!
Forget about frown lines! Smiling and laughing releases endorphins, and endorphins make you happy! *Partial Legally Blonde reference* Smiling also helps lower stress and anxiety. Plus it is contagious! 

5. Stress Less!
Especially about things that are out of your control! Stressing ages you and who got time for that?! Not to mention, stressing can affect your health in a negative way. 

5 easy tips to help make you feel beautiful that you can adopt right now! You don't have to step out anywhere but out of your comfort zone. I have more tips that I can share but I figured that I wouldn't bore you all. 😂 But if you guys enjoyed this post and would like for me to share more tips, feel free to leave me a comment below!

What you sweetie pies think of this look? These pics were done by the awesome Glynn of 905 East Studios. I had the pleasure of working with him during the Bloggers and Photographers Meet Up. Much love to Maggie from Bramble and Bee and Samantha from The Pink Envelope

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!
