Happy In 5!!!

1 – Soak Up Some Rays: Even if it’s 10 minutes, vitamin D is essential to your happy state! Slap on that sunscreen & take in that good feeling!

2 – Let Your Feet Wonder: Studies have shown that at least 30 minutes of walking per day can be a major mood booster. Walking helps with circulation, which in return releases stress hormones from the body.

3 – Intake That H20: Dehydrated people are cranky people! Water helps keep the body going, curbs appetite and gives you much needed energy throughout the day. Drink up!

4 – Tap Into Your Self: Meditate for at least 5 minutes a day. Turn everything off, tune everyone out and clear your mind. Let your worries melt away. You will feel much lighter and be transported into a new form of bliss.

5 – Laugh Till It Hurts: Listen to a joke, hangout with hilarious people, watch a funny movie or clip. There is no better medicine then a good belly-aching giggle! It connects you with your inner child, simpler times where everything was happy and carefree.

Must Have Bags

So this past weekend I decided to start my spring cleaning ritual, with my oh so crazy closet. I know, scary! First on the list, my bags. I’m proud to say I have come a long way in this department. I use to be a major bag hoarder, but now I can confidently say I have down – graded to your average bag collection of about 20. As impressive as that might seem to a major bag collector, I still feel the need to retired some bags that just serve me no purpose anymore. I was online the other day and came across a great article on fabsugar.com, about the 6 major bags a woman really needs. So, I decided to put my own spin on the article and break it down for you ladies who might also be facing this process of elimination. Hopefully, this will help us detach ourselves from some of the oldies but goodies and get back to basics!

The Best Friend – This is your everyday bag. Your go-to, always there for you, dependable and sturdy one. Carries your life in it and pretty much knows all your dirty secrets.

2014-04-08 13.33.09

The Quicky – Your errands, fast – paced, in and out daytime clutch. A personal hand held organizer of all your main womanly needs. It keeps it all together,  but doesn’t call for all the extras.

The No Fuss – This will be your crossbody bag. Oh, the freedom this one gives you! This should be your go-to bag for any overly active day. It’s hands free and way better than strapping on a fanny-pack! Bonus, probably the most thief – proof of all the purses (but make sure you face it forward).

The Handy One – This would be your tote. Your towel, magazine, book holding pal. The lug everything you can possibly think of for a day at the beach, park or school bag.

The Jet – setter – The one and only weekender. Your jump in the car, road trip sidekick. Always ready for the next adventure.  Big enough to fit a couple of outfits, but light enough to make a spontaneous escape.

2014-04-08 13.32.14

The Game Changer – Last but not least, your evening clutch. The sexy and edgy quick to impress piece of hand held art that we love to display. This stunner can spice up some the most boring outfits. It’s a collections must have.

Get The Look

For my first “Get The Look” post I’m looking at the hit TV shows of the moment for some inspiration, “Jane By Design” ! I’m not only obsessed with the story line, but also love how each of the girls have their own signature look! We picked the three top characters from the show to break down their style and show you how to achieve the look!

Think punk-rock and edgy mixed with feminine touches. Leather jackets with frilly tops and tutu skirts! Colorful belted cardigans, paired with classic dresses. Fun and always different. Alternative yet very fashionable and unique.

Think seductive badgirl. Strong, confident and bold. Big statement jewelry, tight form-fitting dresses, high-fashion purses and sky-high heels. Peplum and oversized shoulders, finished with big flowy hair.

 

Lulu – Played by actress Meagan Tandy:

Think goody-good, preppy-school girl. Classic cutts. Pastel and light colors. Fitted blazers, stripped polo shirts and pleatted tennis skirts. Knee high stockings, ties, hair bows and cute matching handbags.
