Fashion Friday! Summer Solstice!

June 20, 2014

Summer is finally here, and so are the new bright colors of the season!  Here Samantha and Susan will show off their brand new hot summer outfits for 2014.

Samantha's Outfits:

I have decided to pair whites, tans, and yellows together to show off the bright summer colors off!  The outfit on the right is the casual yet chic day to day wear for the summer socialite.  With the tan wedge and tan bucket bag, the dress color is almost endless! In celebration of the summer solstice, the orange dress will scream warm weather. The outfit on the left is a formal trendy look, anyone can wear to a social gathering or night out with the girls!  I decided to pair white heels with a white bag to compliment the yellow summery tight dress for a classy look on the town. This look can accentuate the love of summer air. The outfits scream bubbly and cute personalities and welcome the first day of summer to anyone.  Both outfits are paired with the Grande Copper Lotus Necklace by Susan Harbourt Designs.  This is the perfect necklace that can fit with almost every outfit for each day of the summer. Enjoy!

Susan's Outfit:

I need multi functional pieces so this would be the perfect summer staple in my closet.  I can dress it up for going out to lunch with the ladies, or a dinner date with the hubby, I can make it casual for shopping or running errands around town.  One thing for sure I I always have a pair of Maui Jim Sunglasses to protect my eyes, a bottle of water to keep me hydrated, my Kindle fully loaded with all kinds of books for whatever suits my fancy, comfy and stylish Dansko sandals, a wide brim hat to keep those freckles from spreading, a card cause you never know when you will get a chill from the AC someplace, and a fashionable necklace from Susan Harbourt Designs to set the tone of the outfit!  This Grande Lotus Necklace is amazing because it can go from day to night.

Day 4:  Remembering the Past with Positivity
Day 4: Remembering the Past with Positivity

January 04, 2021

When you complete a big accomplishment, and you are asked how you did, do you normally focus on what you did wrong...or do you celebrate what you did  well?

I admit that I have a habit of dwelling on what I didn't do as well as I had wanted.  Sometimes I even get on a fixation loop of replaying my mistakes in my head.  But what I have learned is that this is not a productive behavior and can lead to anxiety and depression.   

What I have started to do is focus on what I did well and acknowledge that first. Then instead of looking at my errors as mistakes, I view them as areas of improvement instead of calling them failures.  For every area of improvement that I identify, I assign a new action or make a plan to improve so that maybe I don't repeat that behavior or pattern in the future.

Today I want you to reflect on 2020.  Push those negative thoughts aside.

Day 3:  Create the Soundtrack to your Movie
Day 3: Create the Soundtrack to your Movie

January 03, 2021

Every great movie has a great soundtrack that accompanies it.  The music sets the stage for the emotions of every scene.  It pulls you in, your heart syncs with the rhythm of the beat, and you will connect with the moment and really feel the emotion more deeply than if there was no music. 

Visualize this:  If you could write your movie, the way you would want it to look, what would the story be?

Day 2: Sensory Scan to Connect with Yourself

The ability to relate and to connect, sometimes in odd and yet striking fashion, lies at the very heart of any creative use of the mind, no matter in what field or discipline.

-George J Seidel

To begin this challenge, simply sit down.  You can do this exercise anywhere you are that is a safe place to just sit and exist for a few moments.
