Weekend Wisdom: Little Things


This weekend, let's remember that little things to us are big things to someone else.

A simple hello, using 'please' and 'thank you', a friendly smile, holding the door for the person behind you.

These things that seem to be so insignificant could be a bright light for someone who is having a dark day.

Don't ever underestimate the little things.

Fashion Friday: Rain, Rain, Rain

Today, the weather in Charlotte is quite gloomy. Rain, gray skies and cold temperatures have made me want to stay inside, curl up on the couch under a blanket and clear off some space on the DVR.

I may or may not be doing this right now. Oops.

However, the view out my window has made me think about rain boots on this 'Fashion Friday'. Even though it might be a mess outside, any fashionable girl must still look stylish.  

Here are two options that I would love to add to my closet...

Color: Aubergine

Color: Olive Rubber

Are you eyeing any rain boots before the brutal winter months arrive?

Weekend Wisdom: Life Is Waiting


I'm guilty.

Of what you may ask? 

Of trying to plan out every moment of the day and as a result, sulking in disappointment missing MY life that is happening right in front of me. Hundreds of moments make up one 24 hour period in our lives and how many of those do we actually remember? Most days, I'm lucky if I can recall a handful.

Over the last few weeks, I've accepted the fact that life isn't perfect. People change. Money doesn't buy happiness. The unexpected will mess up my schedule. But when I let go of what I think my perfect life should look like, I have a pretty darn good one, staring at me in the face.

So today as I start a new week, I'm going to embrace everyday with open arms and enjoy the life that is waiting on me. Will you do the same?
