Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: 

“Be with those who bring out the best in you, not the stress in you.”

Hello Beautiful People and Happy Monday to you,

I had such a wonderful low key weekend, I just wish that I had one more day just to chill and relax. Maybe I should have called in sick to work today {Just Kidding} LOL!

I thought I would start the week off with one of my favorite quotes:

Lovelightcreative.com
LoveLightCreative.com

 

I am not sure who wrote it, but I found it on Pinterest from LoveLightCreative.com a while back and I used it as my lock screen image on my phone for a long time. Not sure why, but every time I read this quote I laugh so hard on the inside because 1. It is so funny to me and 2. It is so TRUE! As I mentioned in my very first GYMRM (Get your Mind Right Monday) post, I briefly touched on a situation where I allowed those around me to bring me down so far that it was so hard for me to bring myself back to life. Sometimes it is so easy to get caught up with people who are your “friends” but are secretly hoping you fail in life. Not intentionally but because they are miserable with themselves they naturally put that energy on you, and if you are around them like every day, you get sucked in to their negative pull.

So if you want to live a positive life and allow for positivity to penetrate your life; you should surround yourself with people who truly love and care about you and want to see you succeed in life, or surround yourself with like-minded people who are striving for the same goal or similar goals in life, business, or family as you are.

Let’s start the week by “being with those who bring out the best in you, not the stress in you”!

I hope you all have a VIVACIOUS week.

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: “Start each day with a grateful heart.” -Author Unknown

Hello Beautiful People!

I hope you Monday is off to a great start, I know mines is.

I had a wonderful weekend full of fun, laughter, and joy and not to mention it was Super Bowl weekend so there were a lot of shenanigans going on.

So the quote of the day for this Get Your Mind Right Monday is…drum roll please… “Start each day with a grateful heart”.

Gratitude = Positivity1

Being grateful or having gratitude for everything that you have in life is a staple of living a vivacious and happy life. Gratitude is such a strong feeling that allows you to attract positivity in your life like a sponge. So I challenge you to start everyday with a grateful heart by each day writing or even posting on  Social Media (Facebook, twitter, or Instagram) what you are grateful for in the following areas or your life:

  1. Family Life
  2. Personal Life
  3. Work/Professional Life

By the end of the week take time to asses how you feel and how your mindset has changed.

I hope you all have a beautiful and positive week.

Savvy DIY: Knock-off Wildfox Sweatshirt

Savvy DIY-Knock Off Wildfox

Hello everyone!

So have you all seen those super fabulous WildFox sweatshirts with the  glittery heart?  You know the ones that cost about $150.00 (CRAZY, right?).

Ever since I saw the Wildfox sweatshirt on this chick that I ran in to at UTC mall back in October I wanted one, but I am not the one to  pay $150.00 for an oversized cotton sweatshirt with glitter on it. I tried to find a cheaper version of the sweatshirt, but I had no luck. So I figured I am a very savvy and creative person, so how can I go about making one for myself? Well first and foremost I figured all I needed was an oversized cotton sweatshirt, some glitter and something to hold the glitter in place. So I set out on a mission to make it happen. First I went to Joanne’s Fabric, and of course picked the brains of the helpful employees in the store and they helped me come up with the process of how I was going to make this happen.

Apparently all I needed to make my own sweatshirt was only four items:

  1. Cotton Sweatshirt of my choice (I got mine from Walmart for about $5.00)
  2. Glitter in the color of my choice
  3. Large heart stencil
  4. Fabric Glue

And here is the process that I used to make my sweatshirt:

  1. I placed my sweatshirt on a hard flat surface, and made sure it was smooth and had no wrinkles.
  2. I placed my heart stencil on my sweatshirt were I wanted the heart to be, and then I taped it on to the sweatshirt so that it would not move.
  3. In a bowl I mixed my glitter and fabric glue to make a glittery paste.
  4. Apply the glitter paste with a large paint brush or sponge.
  5. Let  it dry for about 20 minutes or if you are inpatient like me use a hairdryer to speed up the process.
  6. If there are any bald spots in your heart after you let it dry for a while, go back in and fill them in with more glittery paste.
  7.  Now let it dry for a few hours
  8. Cut the neck of the sweatshirt so that it has that off the shoulder kind of look.

And there you have it a FABULOUS knock-off Wildfox sweatshirt.

I loved my sweatshirt so much that I had all of the ladies at work make there own, and they came out so fabulous!

P.S. I have also learned that I am not the only one who wanted a cheaper version of this sweatshirt and figured out how to make it. You can also find DIY for this sweatshirt on YouTube.

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY: 

“Tomorrow is a new day”.

Today was one of those days, you know those day that you wish you can press rewind and start all over again.

First of all I have not had a good night sleep in over 2 weeks and last night was no exception. My Monday morning started off so just not right, first I woke up later than I wanted to, then of course I couldn’t find anything to ware because I was totally having a “FAT” day. Oh did I mention that I forgot to put on make up, and by the time I remembered I was already running late and could not put my face together and/or grab my make up bag to apply it at work. It just seemed like one thing led to another today, and I could not shake the negativity that was coming my way.

All I kept thinking all day was that I wish I could press rewind and start this day all over. If I could only restart this day I could change the outcome of everything and shake the case of the Mondays. As today starts to come to an end, I have reminded my self that tomorrow is a new day. A day that I know will be an amazing day, because this Monday will be put in the past.

Thanks God for a new day!

I hope you all have a positive and fabulous week, now that Monday is behind us.

Get your mind right Quote for MONDAY:  

“What the New Year brings to you will depend a great deal on what you bring to the New Year.”-Vern McLellan

First and foremost, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I am so excited for 2015, I can’t help but feel the excitement and new opportunities that 2015 has in store for me. In the past I have not felt this much excitement for the New Year, but I know that something amazing is going to happen this year. Don’t ask me what it is, because I have no idea. I just know! It is that feeling deep in your gut that you just can’t shake no matter what.

I have not had a chance to sit down and go over my goals for 2015 yet (I know, I know, I am so late). All I know as of today is that I am ready to ramp up my blog and get my YouTube channel started. So at some point today I will sit down and write out my long term goals and break them down in to short term goals.

So what am I bringing to 2015? I am bringing a positive attitude, lots of love, happiness, determination, hard work, and self awareness.

Joy in 2015

What are you bringing to 2015 to ensure that you have an AMAZING year?
