Happiness

"Because i'm happy, clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth..."

Unless you've been living in a cave, Happy by Pharell Williams is huge right now. The lyrics are contagious and very upbeat. Happiness is what every human wants. We spend our whole lives trying to find it and keep it. It's vital for us as humans to be well, happy. I would like to challenge you to try the following 5 exercises at least once a day for 1 week. I promise you if you complete all of these tasks, you will have a brighter outlook and be happier!

Savor the momentYou've heard the saying, take time to stop and smell the roses. That's essentially what savoring the moment is. It boosts positivity and reduces stress. Notice all the good stuff around you and take a moment to enjoy it. So whether it's spending time with those you love, pausing to admire the sunset or stars at night, or cooking a meal. Linger, take it in, and enjoy the experience. 

Thank Someone: Appreciate the things people do for us. It fills us with optimism and self-confidence, knowing that others are there for us. It also strengthens our relationships with loved ones. When we express our gratitude to someone, we get kindness and gratitude in return.
Aspire for more:Aspiration is having hope and having a sense of purpose. People who have created meaning in their lives are happier and more satisfied with their lives. Have dreams, and follow them. 
Give: Everything about giving is a no brainier. Obviously, when you give someone something, you make them happier. But what you might not know is when you give someone something, it makes you happier than the receiver. Give a compliment, donate clothes you don't wear to the goodwill, give your time to help someone, do a random act of kindness, remember a family members birthday and send them a card, the list is endless!
Empathize: Empathy is a powerful word packed with lots of different interpretations. It's the ability to care about others and to understand the situation others are in, including those different from ourselves. Essentially it's putting yourself in someone elses shoes. When we empathize with people, we become less judgmental, less frustrated, angry or disappointed. It also strengthens our relationships. And when we really empathize with others, they're very likely to do the same with us.

Let me know if you tried these, and how they worked for you.

  1. I totally agree! Happiness is the key to life, to living it and enjoying it. If you don't have it you can not love nor live. Its so simple, but its the truth.

Best Pinterest Inspired Summer Hairstyles

Every time I need a little inspiration, I get on Pinterest. I love these hot weather hairstyles that I recently discovered while pinning. I hardly ever wear my hair down in the summer, my hair is really long, thick and black so you can imagine how hot it is. So i'm always looking to try new hairstyles to sport in the summer months, these are my favorite pins for summer hair.

H&M for kids

Both of my sons are very fashion forward. With that being said, before I had children I had no idea little boys are so concerned with their appearance. Or maybe they took after us, after all my husband and I put a lot of thought into what we wear. My oldest son Jackson is the worst. If he doesn't like what outfit I pick out for him, he makes sure to let me know. Jameson is the almost as bad, he has to have his hair fixed every time we leave the house. 

Like every other american, I love h&m. There clothes and accessories are super chic and very affordable. It wasn't until last week when I received an H&M catalog in the mail that I realized they sold little boys clothing(be still my beating heart). Like everything else from H&M, its super affordable(cha-ching)! 


These are my favorite looks for the spring collection for boys.


Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on Sephora.com for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.
