5 Ways To Dress Up Your Plain T-Shirt

We all have at least two or three plain t-shirts in our wardrobe. Many of us use them as a go to casual look. But have you considered taking your plain tee and making it a part of your next chic look?

Here are 5 Ways you can go from ordinary to fab in no time flat:

1. Try A Statement Necklace. I have always been a fan of a great necklace. But your T-shirts are probably even bigger fans. 

2. Put on a Blazer. A great fitted blazer is always a perfect option to dress up your casual tee. 

3. When in Doubt, Wear Heels.. No matter if you’re wearing jeans, pants, or a skirts, adding a pair of heels will definitely make the look more glam. 

4. Scarf It Up. Like necklaces, scarves add a wonderful pop of style to your look. 

5. Tuck and Roll. Simply tucking your shirt, partially or tying it loosely will take your plain tee from simple to trendsetter.

The best thing about your plain t-shirts is that the style possibilities are endless. So go have fun!

How To Start The New Year Like A Boss

Every year people make tons of new year resolutions. Although many of us try to see those resolutions through, the truth is that most of us never get past the end of February before we are back to old habits. Why is that?

I think we get caught up on the idea of starting something new or starting over but we don’t really figure out what we need to do to succeed…Like A Boss!

If you want to start 2016 like you own it, here are some ideas that will help:

1. Know Yourself.

There is nothing wrong with dreaming big. Actually, I recommend it. But being a boss means owning your life. And that means knowing yourself well enough to make changes you  know you can actually handle. For example: Planning to lose 65 pounds in two month on an all liquid diet may be a bit much. 

Access your lifestyle, find out your limits (time, finances, etc), and make reasonable changes that you can stick with long term. For larger changes, seek outside assistance to make sure you can handle everything that needs to be done. Whatever your plans are, do them well.

2. Share With Discretion. We have all seen the countless resolutions online. It’s actually become a series of joke memes and tweets. That’s not how a boss starts ma new year. The best idea is to show your results not share your plans.

If you need an accountability partner or two, confide in those closest to you who support your decisions. The last thing you need is someone in your ear mocking your goals or sabotaging your hard work.

👉A boss doesn’t talk about it, she is about it. Besides, when you finally reach your goals, then you can share them with the world. Then you’ll really have a story to tell.

3. Release Your Inhibitions. An inhibition is a force that prevents something from happening—and often comes from you yourself.

Don’t start your new year standing in your own way. If you want to cut your hair, do it. If you want to change careers, go for it. Whatever it is that you’ve wanted to do, see, or try, you owe it to yourself to do so.

The major regrets that most people have later in life are the things they didn’t do. DON’T let this be you.

4. Let The Haters Hate. Know this one thing to be absolutely true, Haters Gonna Hate!

Seriously. No matter how great you are, how kind you are, or how giving you are, someone is bound to hate what you’re up to and there is nothing you can do about it. Now that that’s clear, it should be understood that their opinion is irrelevant because it really doesn’t have anything to do with your life.

Think of it like this, Haters are  just reminders that you’re living life on your own terms. And that my dear is awesome!

I don’t know about you, but I plan to be wildly content with the life I live. That means going out there and creating the life I deserve. I hope you will do the same. 🙆

3 Ways To Make Your Everyday Life More Fabulous

image

Life can be stressful. We all know this. Often times we assume only the rich and famous can have a fabulous day-to-day life, but that isn’t true. Anyone can live life a bit more fab. Here’s how:

3. Focus On What You Love. Life is full of distractions. Often the expectations of others or even the expectations that we place upon ourselves force us to put what we love on the back burner. We are so busy working or doing for others that we have so little time to do what we love. Yet, focusing on what we love is crucial to truly having a fulfilling life.

Hobbies You Love Such As Bike Riding Are A Must

2. Loose Yourself InThe Moment. If you think about it, the only time we truly have is right now. The past is done and we can’t be sure what tomorrow brings  So why not really make the most out of your time?  This may sound “extra” to some people, but I really believe in celebrating life in small glamorous ways. I randomly buy champagne just to have a glass, I put  fresh flower petals in my bubble baths, and sometimes on weeknights I book a really nice hotel room, order room service, and just relax with my phone on silent. I do these things because I don’t want to be a person who needs a reason to do something nice. Life should be celebrated every day in some kind of way, big or small.

1. Tune Out Bad Vibes. Have you ever noticed how draining some people can be? Always complaining or gossiping or whatever vibe-killing trait they tend to have. Well, if you don’t take anything else from this blog post I hope it is this: Separate Yourself From Draining People.

There is nothing fabulous about spending time with anyone who makes you feel low or judged. Associate with loving, positive people and keep everyone else at a distance. *That may include staying away from them on social media as well.

I promise you, if you apply the three things listed above your days will become much brighter.
