Don't just taste the rainbow, be the rainbow!

At work I have encountered a lot of women who have the same problem as my mom, they like to stick to darker colors. My mom adores black and brown so most of her outfits consists of those two colors,I have been trying really hard to get her to branch out and after a loooooong time I finally got her to give in and try something new. I am proud to say that she now wears bright colors that look so much more better on her than those dull colors that she preferred.

                                   DARE TO BE BRIGHT!
    Ever heard of mood rings? Different colors represent our moods! Crazy, huh? After doing a little research I came across this great article by  in it it lists what each color represents, I found this information very useful! Not only will I share it with my customers but I will also take it into consideration everytime I dress!

    Red, Maroon, and Pink
    *Red is fierce, red is confident.
    *Maroons are beautiful for the evening, easy on the eyes and gorgeous with every hair color.
    *Pink is the essential girl color, pink is joy, pink is warmth and tenderness.

    Orange and Yellow
    *Orange has something energetic, enthusiastic and playful about it.
    *Yellow has an innate happiness about it. Like the glint of gold, yellow is a beacon for optimism.
    *Blue resonates with a calm, collected intelligence.
           Purple, Blue, and Green

    *Purple is unique and silently hyperactive.
    *Blue resonates with a calm, collected intelligence.
    *Well, you know what they say about green. Geniuses pick green as their favorite color.
    So there you have it folks! Next time you are deciding on what to wear remember what each color represents and pick a color that will represent your mood :) So check out the right side of my blog to see simple ways to add some color into your life!

I LOVE my job!... Do you?

I work at a retail store, and I have a lot of customers coming in and asking for my help, sometimes they ask simple questions like "where can i find the top that mannequin is wearing?" or " do you have this in a medium"? but for the most part I have people asking me for fashion advice "what do you think would look good with this skirt?" or my favorite question of all "Can you help me pick out some cute outfits?" O-M-G that is the best thing anyone at work can ask me because I just go crazy!
Helping my customers pick out outfits is pretty much like when I was little and I used to play with my barbies and dressed them up. It was so much fun back them but it's soooo much more fun right now! I have a much bigger selection of clothes, shoes and jewelry to choose from PLUS my "dolls" are life size now :)

So where am I getting at with this? Make sure that what you are doing is something that you love doing, after all  “If you find a job you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.” So just ask yourself, “What am I good at that I enjoy doing?” and then go do it. For some, it’s writing, drawing, or even solving math problems (yeah, I know weird but it's true) As for myself I know that I am really good at helping others.

Why ask yourself that question? well because according to an article posted by "Loving what you do also makes you much more committed to your career. You won’t neglect it because you don’t mind getting up to go to work every day....When you love the career you have, you’ll be a much healthier person. You won’t suffer from the dread of working every day but will, instead, approach it enthusiastically.... You’ll be amazed of the impact loving what you do will have on your life." (To read the full article please click here )

After reading this I hope you all stop for a second and think about what you are doing with your life, do you enjoy doing what you do at work? Are you happy with the career path you have chosen? If the answer is no or if you don't even know just think about what you think is not working for you, what changes you think you can/should make and go for it. After all we only live once, and I'm sure you don't want to spend your life at a place where you are not happy or doing something you don't enjoy.

Just say "me'

Whether you are single or in a relationship, a mother, a student, or, well just to make it short: regardless of your lifestyle make sure that you are having some "me" time.

I like to think of "Me" time as a period of time where I can do whatever I want! It can be for a couple of hours or a whole day, regardless I always look forward to it! Don't get me wrong I LOVE spending time with my boyfriend, family and friends but hey sometimes a girl has to do what a girl has to do.

"Me" time can consist of any activity you enjoy doing, it can be something as simple as reading a book to going in a "mini-getaway." We all have busy lives and lots to do, so why not make some time for yourself? After all you deserve it :)

                             What's my favorite way of spending some me time? 

Well, now that it's almost summer I like to tan in my backyard while reading a book. It's relaxing, I get to forget what's going on at work, at school and my life and I just get lost in my book. So try it out, schedule some "Me" time next time you feel stressed, overworked, or simply just because.

Post some comments or tweet me and share with me how you are spending your "Me" time! I look forward to hearing from you all :)

Hope you had a great weekend

I want to help others, answer their questions  and be their friend. I want my readers to get to know me and for me to know them, so I encourage each of my followers to be really involved with this blog. Share your thoughts and opinions and send  any questions you have my way and I will be happy to answer them! After all, there is no blog without you :)

This blog will be about anything and everything! It will be about everyday life, make up, fashion, love, pets, movies, books, you name it. Each day I will talk about a different topic, and since this is my first blog I will be trying on different ideas. This is why I want you all to be involved to let me know how I am doing and to see what my readers like and don't like. So please share my page with your girlfriends, and even your guy friends!
