Style.

Well, it’s been a hot second since I’ve posted, but alas, since I’m living the dream of post-grad life, I have a little too much free time– at least for the next week.

Anyway, the topic of this post isΒ style, hence the title. Everyone on this earth has the ability to define his or her own personal style; jock/athlete apparel, boho chic, “mom” style, classy chic, plain Jane… you get the picture. Whatever you choose to wear,Β own it! Be confident; Rock it!

My biggest pet peeve is when I hear ladies (primarily) complain about how they could never “pull off” wearing a headband, a bold collar statement necklace or deep maroon lip color, for example. My response to those types of statements is, “Girl, you can wear anything as long as you have confidence… and a bit of sass!” While apparel and accessories should flatter the body, confidence will help you wear the outfit, rather than the outfit wear you.

So next time you’re at your favorite local boutique, contemplating whether to buy a gorgeously beaded headband,Β go for the gold!Β Buy it and wear it and make it your very own– you’ll look beautiful!

Christ-mas Blessings

Well, this is my very first shot at attempting any type of written blog. So here’s to hoping I can express my thoughts, fears and ambitions about anything and everything in text form… enjoy!

Over my past three and a half years of college, I’ve learned to more so cherish relationships with friends and family rather than focusing on ever-so-consuming material objects. After all it’s not about how much money or how many clothes or name brand purses/watches/shoes we own- those don’t create lasting happiness. While these types of things are nice and enjoyable, money and tangible products create more of a temporary happiness to fill internal holes that may reside on the inside. The bonds and relationships we form with one another- friends, family and acquaintances- are lasting and constant happiness… the relationships I’ve formed and developed over the past few years are my eternal happiness.

I now recognize that at the end of the day it’s not what we have in life, but who we have in our life that matters. And on this late Christmas Eve, I’m forever thankful for my close friends and family… you’re what makes life worth living.
