Monday Mantra No.4

Happy Monday Loves! To start the week off proper, I’m sharing my Mantra of the week as well as Daily Productivity Printables to help jumpstart your productive & satisfying week!

M a n t r a :

You Didn’t Come This Far to Only Come This Far

This mantra is a great reminder of how far we have come. By waking up every morning and repeating this mantra, you remind yourself of all the success that you have had in your life and are ready to tackle the day. It makes you realize that if we were to quit, as we all have a tendency to do from time to time, how much we would actually be giving up.

M a n t r a :

You Can Find an Excuse or You Can Find a Way

In every crisis, you have two options: keep going or give up. Usually, if we choose to keep going we are able to overcome whatever obstacle lies before us. However, if we choose to make excuses for our misfortunes, we ultimately may end up throwing in the towel. Cheers to finding a way this week!

M a n t r a :

“Don’t Wish for It, Work for It”

I’m totally loving this weeks mantra because it has the ability to get you out of your head anytime you drift off into the world of what could be. You know what you want, so there is no time for daydreaming about it. Instead, get to work. The difference between success and failure is the action that you take today.

Currently Coveting : Wrap Dresses

Happy Thursday lovies ! I am all about transitional pieces this fall and wrap dresses definitely made the cut! When shopping, I like the idea that the pieces selected are pieces that I can wear for any occasion, during any season. In turn, I get more bang for my buck.  Wrap dresses are essential to my wardrobe, and I love how easy wrap dresses can transition from day time casual to night time chic.

Monday Memo #2: MINDFULNESS . . .

Over the weekend, my cousin and I met for martinis and caught up on much needed girl chat. During our conversation, we spoke about all things life and after stating my piece, she informed me that I may be just lacking a little bit of MINDFULNESS. This was a complete shocker because, I’m usually one that lives completely in the moment, but in this case she was right! I seemed to have gotten so wrapped up into the busyness of everything that I haven’t really stopped and paid attention to the beauty of it all.

What is Mindfulness?

If you’re new to mindfulness, you may be wondering what this ever-so popular word means.  Mindfulness is simply awareness.  It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it. At times, we allow ourselves to get caught in our own pool of thoughts which sometimes results in potentially losing awareness.

How to Practice Mindfulness

Mindfulness is something we could all use more of in our daily lives. During our busy schedules, it’s easy to forget that we need to come back and check in with ourselves. I’ve listed a few reminders and ways to practice mindfulness during those busy times:

 1. Focus on the present moment

Try not to focus on things that went on in the past or that might be coming up in future.

2. Purposefully concentrate on what’s happening around you

A good exercise that will allow you to focus on what is happening around you, is just to pause and take everything in.  Whether it is the drive to work, a walk or even simply looking up at the sky for a few seconds to soak it all in.  Its easy, and free.

3. Take the time to be fully present, aware of where you are and what you are doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around you.

Being fully present without passing judgment and labeling things around you as good or bad is a great way to settle the overwhelming vibes. When I take a few moments to accept the world around me for what it is, I feel less like the world is passing me by and more like I’m immersed in its beauty. I feel more connected.

Mindfulness Apps you may want to Download:

My go to apps that help me to promote mindfulness are:

Headspace , Aura and Mindfulness Daily.

Although its good to sometime practice mindfulness in silence, it’s also fun to  follow along with insights offered through the apps listed above.

I hope that everyone has an amazing week and takes time to practice mindfulness! Have ways or tips of how you achieve Mindfulness?  I’d love to hear it in the comments below!!

Ask me Anything | September Q+A

Happy Saturday loves! I always get a ton of questions about blogging, fashion, where I shop and what I am loving. I decided that now would be the perfect opportunity, to do a little blog Q & A post for all of the questions previously submitted last week. So here goes.

What trends are you currently following ?

I am currently still loving the fanny pack trend. I thought it was over, until I moved to Europe and now I find myself searching for all types of fanny packs. I might have bitten off more than I can chew. Also, Im so loving mules and slide-ons, there are so many different styles and its perfect for a chic and trendy look.  Ive listed a few of my favorite styles below:

Designer

 Contemporary

Where do you get your style inspiration from?

I get the majority of my inspiration from street style, magazines and style/fashion books; Outlets like FashionBombDaily, Vogue and People StyleWatch to name a few.  I am obsessed with  Editorial Photography books from different designers and powerhouses. I especially love Vogue: The Covers.

What are your go-to places to shop?

Im a little biased because I worked in retail for  years, so BCBGMAXAZRIA and Saks Fifth Avenue will always be my favorites especially for classic staple pieces. Also, if I want cutesy trendy looks and don’t want to pay an arm and a leg, I also love BCBGenerationNordstrom, Zara and Topshop.

What are your favorite skin care products?

I love Drunk Elephant, its super addictive. My best friend introduced me to the products, and my skin adores it.

You post a lot about vibes and mood, how do you keep the "happy go lucky" vibe up on a day to day basis?

Sometimes the happy go lucky vibe is effortless and there are times in which it can also be challenging. When it is challenging, affirmations and meditation  is key. I have to dedicate quality time and silence for myself every morning, even if it is for 5 minutes. Here are some meditation apps that I love.

(Select to download app)

 Simple Habit // Think up // Headspace Meditation

What do you feel the most confident in?

I feel the most confident in  shift dresses, statement jackets and cutesy shoes. Effortlessly chic looks are the my absolute fav.

What foundation would you recommend for darker skin complexions?

In the past, I have used Nars, MAC and Makeup Forever.  These brands have it down to a science as it relates to a variety of skin tones. I’ve listed below the types/tones I’ve personally used.

Are you currently reading any books, or do you have any suggestions on books to read?

I am currently re-reading Rachel Roy , Design your life. I love re-reading books every couple of years. So much change and growth happens within that time frame, its almost like I am reading a new book,  the interpretation is always different and I discover something new each time. I would also recommend the Alchemist. Its a classic and its always inspiring.

I hope you enjoyed Ask me Anything : September Q+A !  Feel free to comment below or on my IG for the next Q+A! Anything fashion, dating, life, work, you name it! I will answer it!
