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.

worry less live more life lessons 45 life lessons written by a 90 year old pretty please us blog pretty please blog life quotations life posts how to live a good life advice to live a happy life how to be happy how to live a happy life

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.

Pretty Nails & Toesies: Emerald Digits

24 Jul

Palm Springs. I went there a few weeks ago, and all I saw was heat, heat, trendy eateries, an uber-cute population, and more heat. That was until the last day where I was begging the 113 degree temperature to turn me into the bronze goddess, I know my skin secretly desires to be. As I was baking, I turned to my right and I saw a mirage: a cute blonde with emeralds on her fingertips. Sipped some cucumber water, and asked her what was on her nails, and bada bing bada boom! I fell in love with my absolute FAVORITE new summer shade!

Emerald Bling .. Yes, please!

So, back to me, the cute blonde, and her nailpolish. I asked her what she used, as I guessed it had to be OPI, Essie, Deborah Lippman, The Color Club – all some of my favorite nailpolish brands. I was shocked at her response:

“I grabbed some black nailpolish, painted one coat, and then picked up some cheaper green glittery nailpolish and painted it over the black after it dried. Pretty cool, huh?”

Heck yea it was pretty cool!

So obviously, I had black nailpolish “Black on Black”, and swooped up “Call You Later” – both by Sinful Colors, painted a coat of black, let it dry, and then painted two coats of green glitter. (Priced at $1.99 each, it’s almost a scandal how affordable this polish is.) Anyway end result? LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

The best part is that the black polish further enhances the green, so it literally looks like you have emerald glazed fingertips! I got a ton of compliments and lots like myself were shocked at how easy this look was. DIY and try it out!

Can’t wait to try this out with more fun colors! Stay cool ladies and gents!

Flirty Fuchsia: THE Summer Lip Color We Love

16 Jul

In April I went to Waikiki, HI. Needless to say it was absolutely GORG out there! Perhaps it was the fact that summer was nearing or just the fact that I was inspired by the usage of color and flowers in the Hawaiian culture, but I was craving a fun lip color. The fact that Sephora was less than a minute from my hotel room didn’t hurt either. Of course I came, I saw, I lipsticked.. and fell in love with this perfect summer color!

Onto the fun part, so my perfect summer beauty find is Kat Von D’s Everlasting Love Lipstick in Backstage Bambi, and at a mere $19, I considered this a steal! This gorgeous Fuchsia shade glides on in a few seconds and dries within 30 seconds. Usually I’m pretty weary on how long lip color stays on, and stays on well, however the above photo was taken about 4 hours after I originally tried it on.

I was so happy with the consistency and pigment in this shade that of course I went back and purchased two more shades, bright coral in Jeffree, and brick red in Outlaw.

Fuchsia is the perfect summer color, it gives you the perfect pop of color & requires minimal other make up! It goes amazing with fair to tan skinned, so you can rest by the pool worry-free! Don’t take our word for it!

How To Make Your Manicures Last Longer

2 Apr

You go to the salon, you stand in front of the huge rack of nail polishes and you carefully pick a color that you want the nice ladies to carefully paint on your fingers. You sit there still as she paints your fingers oh so perfectly. Then you wait, you sit and wait to make sure that the polish dries. You’re a happy camper! And a few days later you notice this:

how to keep the nailpolish on longer keep nailpolish from chipping tips and tricks for nailpolish manicures prety please

This happens to me every time! The hand washing, working with weights at the gym, the showering, it all works together like an army of one to make sure that my nail polish starts fading on the top.  It’s super frustrating to realize that a couple of days ago you paid someone $25 bucks to do this. And I definitely can’t keep going back to get manicures the moment I see a chip in my nail polish, nor do you ever have the same color you picked at the salon at home to just fix the chip. So I have a little trick that helps hide the chipping. Continue reading

Pretty Nails & Toesies: Lavender Lovin’

20 Mar

Last night I fell in love. No joke, I fell in love with Nice is Nice by Essie & Sugarplum Fairy by Color Club. Nice is Nice retails for $4-$6, and Sugarplum Fairy $6-$8. I was overdue for a much needed manicure, and ever since my January Birchbox haul, I’ve been obsessed with finding a milky lavender, something that holds true to color. Also, if you couldn’t already tell, I am OBSESSED with glittery nailpolish. Here’s how my nails turned out with both colors:

AMAZING, RIGHT?!

Perhaps it’s the subtlety of the lavender or the gorgeous holographic glittery polish, but I have been checking out my nails since I filed, buffed, and painted them last night! What’s even better, is that since Continue reading
