28 Dec

One thing we hate about NYE is how dorky you look in the party hats. But we love love love what Kira from Her New Leaf has done with the hats. We’d totally rock these on New Years Eve 2012:

45 Life Lessons By A 90 Year Old

17 Dec

I ran across this post on StumbleUpon yesterday evening and I found it enlightening.. Not only was it filled with 45 magical mantra’s, but something about it being written by an elderly person who has lived most of their life put it in perspective. Too often we are caught up in the day to day headaches, mundane activities, and short-sighted obstacles.

Here are the 45 life lessons:

1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.

4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

5. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.

6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.

8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

9. Save for things that matter.

10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.

12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.

13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.

15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye… But don’t worry; God never blinks.

16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.

19. It’s never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.

20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.

21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

22. Overprepare, then go with the flow.

23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, ‘In five years, will this matter?’

27. Always choose Life.

28. Forgive but don’t forget.

29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

30. Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.

31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

33. Believe in miracles.

34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.

35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.

37. Your children get only one childhood.

38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d
grab ours back.

41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you think you need.

42. The best is yet to come…

43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

44. Yield.

45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

Tissssssss’ the season to be trendy FA LA LA LA LAA LAAAA LA LA LAAAA

Joy to the world, and to our lovely readers! We know you all are bustling around to complete your Christmas shopping lists and errands! In the midst of this busy season is a few Christmas, Hanukkah (here’s looking at you Maricel), and other Holiday parties! Here’s a snippet of one of my favorite current outfits and looks!

As you all know, I’m OBSESSED with lace! My current obsession is tights, tights, TIGHTS. I’m pretty tall (5’9) to be exact, and wearing tights allows me to wear my miniskirts with ease and class throughout winter!

I absolutely adore the contrast of bright tights and neutral tops – but as always, my number one rule is have fun with what you’re wearing! Be comfortable, and be you!

My Lace Beige Dress: H&M (this links to an ebay seller – their are similar dresses on hm.com like this one but not the same one I’m wearing!)

My Cranberry Tights/Leggings: H&M (abso-flippin-lutely going back for the dark green tights)

My Sparkly Gold Flats: Steve Madden

Cheers to finding your perfect holiday outfit party!

XOXO,

Pretty Please
