4 Reasons Why It is Important to just Start

"The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity." ~ Amelia Earhart

Hey hey sweetie pies, happy Monday! A new week means a new chance. A new chance to take that new class or sign up for that course that you have been putting off. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy when it comes to going beyond our comfort zone. A place where we can grow and thrive. We often can get in our own head with negative self talk or just plain fear paralyzing us and preventing personal growth. Whether it is that business, blog, podcast, campaign, organization that you are trying to start - the hardest thing will always be to just start. If you jump, you can figure it out on the way down! Today I am sharing 4 reasons why it is important to just start.

1. You'll never know if you never try.
As cliche' as it sounds, this statement couldn't be more true. You will never truly understand and acknowledge your full potential if you don't set yourself up to explore every opportunity possible. The worst thing that can happen is that you fail (which you shouldn't be afraid of) but honestly it is inevitable. Failure will happen at some time or another so it is something that should be embraced rather than avoided.

2. There's no better time than now. 
The reality is that people start over everyday. With that means new businesses, new ventures, new products and services that are being provided by people just like you and me. What makes them any better than you? Absolutely nothing! You can start today too! I mean and if you aren't, then why?! Besides no sense in putting off for tomorrow what you can do today.

3. Because #FOMO is real!
Am I the only one who gets on my timeline and see all these posts like; "#SheSaidYes", "It's a boy!", "I got the job!", "#LoveMyLife". (Ok I am totally guilty of doing that last one.) My point is there is always some good news to share. Even though I am always happy to see my friends and family living life - one can easily feel like life is personally passing them by. You definitely want to make sure that you are living a life that you are happy and proud about. So if there is something that you want to do, do it! Some of the most successful and happiest people in life believe that life happens for them and not to them....
And trust me, there is a difference.

4. Because you will never be more ready than you are now.
There is a reason that that special project is on your mind/heart to do. Usually we are slow to pursue our passion projects because we don't put our passions as a priority in our lives. While some get to work doing what they love - most individuals don't. Which means that the things that they are passionate about and love doing end up on the back burner and neglected. It is easy to get caught up in the day to day with work, spouses and children that your passions are more of an afterthought. So if you have been experiencing a nagging feeling or gut telling you that you should start then don't ignore it! God put that on your heart for a reason so wouldn't you want to see what God may have in store for you? Plus you owe it to yourself to see if this is something that you really want to do! Even if you don't have all the resources or tools that you need - start anyway! You will amaze yourself at how resourceful you can be and how much you can grow. The opportunity starts with you!

What's something that you have done in the past that prevented you from pursuing the things you love? What is a bad habit that you want to discontinue this year? Let me know in the comments below! Also shout out if you need an accountability partner so we can help each other this year!

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!
