"Change can come in many forms in our lives. It might come forcefully like a tidal wave, or creep along incrementally like a glacier." via Keep Inspiring Me.
The same areas of our brain become activated when we experience rejection as when we experience physical pain. That’s why even small rejections hurt more than we think they should, because they elicit literal (albeit, emotional) pain.
Last November I lost my bff, something I have been pretty open about and can also admit I am not 100% over. Nonetheless, somehow I have learned to be my own best friend through the process and have had amazing personal growth on so many levels that I thought i'd share 3 things that have happened since becoming my own best friend.
Last month I entered a MAGGY LONDON MOTHER’S DAY BRUNCH with WENDY WILLIAMS giveaway that fellow blogger, Lisa a La Mode was hosting, Turns out I won! The event took place in NY, the winners and bloggers were treated to a lovely afternoon that included hair, makeup and a polish change.
The makings for a good Easter outfit are pastels, florals and lace. If you're in need of a little inspiration on what to wear this Easter sunday I have put together an outfit idea for you.
If you don't own a perforated faux leather skirt - pleated or not, you need to get your hands on one. Seriously, it is so fashionable and stylish all on its own. Even just paired with a graphic tee you'll have a complete outfit that is trendy, and what I like to call comfy chic.
If you are in the Northeast then you probably did not get to wear the outfit you had picked out for Valentine's. Heck, you probably did not even get to go out for Valentine's because of the arctic freeze temps we have been experiencing lately. Luckily if you took a raincheck for next weekend when temps will be better, you'll get to wear a cute outfit with less layers for date night.
Who doesn't enjoy Valentine's, the day of friendship and love? I sure do! My husband and I rarely make Valentine's Day plans but I always prepare a few date night outfit just incase the opportunity arises. I'm thinking this sunday will be a great time to break out my Union28 Marriage Apparel, "My Husband Rocks" graphic tee.
With summer's official end quickly approaching this will be my last summer look. If you follow me on any of my social media channels then you are well aware of my love of the beach and pool, naturally I am not saying goodbye without a fight.
I am not depressed. I can still smile at pretty things and laugh when jokes are funny, I can still talk to people and enjoy nice days.
But when I go inside, when I'm all alone, there is something broken. And I fall into a sadness so sweet that it engulfs me. I look in the mirror but I don't like what I see. And the tears always fall when I'm falling asleep, because I miss something that doesn't exist.
But I am not depressed, I've just been sad for a while. Although I can still find the light, I can still smile. -Amelie Pascual.
