I've been on a journey for the past 5 months. It's been one that I have enjoyed SO much and I've learned more than I bargained for. One of the lessons learned is that I am past due on starting a blog. So, here we are. I am excited to start documenting all the fun content I share from a cohesive hub. My blog. My diary. My tips, tricks, highs, and lows. I'm excited to have you along for the ride.
Do you love this movie as much as me? I mean, FABULOUS!! And cut throat. And unrealistic when it comes to how I approach fashion. I'm more of a Wonder Woman kind of gal. You know, she changes her outfit when she needs extra power....and we can too. Plus, I sort of feel like we are asked to show up as her every minute of every day, so we may as well have outfits that help us do ALL THE THINGS. So, I'm here to help you find an approachable, comfortable, and fabulous pathway to your personal style. Clothes can work wonders for you, if you catch my drift ;). Each week I'll be sharing outfit ideas, formulas, tips, and tricks to bring some fun back to your wardrobe. Here's tip #1 if you don't know where to start: open up Pinterest and start pinning outfits you like. Then take a look at what they have in common. Are they all denim looks? Get a good pair of jeans. Do they all have on statement sneakers? Find a pair you can't live without. Are they rockin a blazers left and right? Then you need one. Happy pinning!
Clothes are only part of the equation. You can put me in a perfect outfit, but if I feel like CRAP, then I most certainly don't feel cute. What I put in my body plays a major role in that. When it comes to how we fuel, I believe it should be a 50/50 split between how it tastes and how it makes you feel. That may seem like an overly simplified way to think about it, so let me explain.
Food should taste good. No matter what your goals are. There’s no reason to be eating things that lack flavor. However, this piece HAS to be in direct correlation to how it makes you feel. Cheetos may taste good, but they make you feel like garbage. Therefore, they don’t make the cut outside of an indulgence here and there. PS….This way of thinking about fuel may require some retraining of the tastebuds. Also, when you approach the 50% of the equation around how it makes you feel, it’s a direct result of balance and watching your macros. When your body gets a balance of carbs, proteins, and fats you feel GOOD.
No need to overly complicate how you’re eating 👊🏻
The last piece of the puzzle in my book is how we think. I recently heard that 10% of our happiness is based upon the external world and that 90% of our long term happiness is how our brain processes the world we find ourselves in. Like WOAH.
That’s A LOT that’s in our control! I also recognize that this can sound a little (or A LOT) woo, woo if you are new to the idea of personal development. But I challenge you to educate yourself about how powerful it can be when we start to change how we think.
Think about it like this: Have you ever had your day start off on the wrong foot? Your alarm doesn't go off, you spill your coffee, the kids won't eat breakfast, you can't find your keys, and there's bumper to bumper traffic on your way to work....and, and, and the rest of the day just keeps bringing more hiccups. And your brain keeps looking for more of them because they like patterns. Even if they're negative. If we can keep looking for the negative, we sure as heck can flip that script and TRAIN our brains to look for the positive. Easier said than done. A few people I recommend you follow to learn more about this is Gabby Bernstein and Oprah's SuperSoul podcast. Prepare to have your mind blown!
