Quote Of The Week

I picked this quote because I have recently set some new fitness goals for myself. I am being incredibly stubborn about my goals, but I am being rather flexible about how I get there. I’m trying all types of different classes checking out all different types of blogs and youtubers, right now I’m trying all different kinds resources. But I know all of these different paths I’m considering will help get me to my goal. Don’t be afraid to change your methods, as long as your new method helps you reach that same goal.

Quote Of The Week

Tough times always reveal true friends, good friends step up and bad friends bail, but I promise it;s not as bad as it seems. Once you learn who those good friends are you can cut those who aren’t, because if there not there for you during the hard times, then they don’t deserve to be there during the good times.

A Few Things Every Princess Should Know About Underwear

sutil

Underwear is a very big part of our lives. There are lots of rules when it comes to underwear especially for girls, so here are some rules about underwear that every girl should know. Some of these I was taught, others I had to learn the hard way, but now I am choosing to share all of my knowledge with you.

1. You can never own too much underwear. Seriously don’t let anyone tell you otherwise ok, there is no such thing as having too much underwear. I mean really there are so many different kinds, you should really own one of each kind. Also how can you not take advantage of those 7 for $25 deals at Victoria’s Secret? Besides the more underwear you have, the less often you have to do laundry.

2. Thongs are an interesting thing you either love them or hate them. Now I know what some of you are thinking, “why would I want to walk around with a wedgie all day?” Go out buy one, try it once. If you hate it, then toss it and never wear them again. If you actually don’t mind it then maybe go out and buy a couple more, like I said, you can never own too much underwear. But NEVER wear thongs to the gym because that can cause a yeast infection.

3. Try to stick with cotton underwear because synthetic fibers can cause an infection. You want stick with cotton and other natural fibers. Types of underwear to avoid include: nylon, and lycra.

4. Don’t be afraid to go commando, it can actually be good for you.

Now let’s talk about bras….

5. If your boobs are hanging out from any part of your bra, it doesn’t fit. So go buy a new one.

6.Get measured at least once a year. Seriously trust me, on this, there’s nothing worse than realizing none of your bra’s fit.

7. Buy 1 bra every time you have money. If you buy them all at once, they will all wear out at the same time. If you buy them all at different times you can avoid this.

8. When you buy a bra it should be tight on the loosest hook. That way as the band loosens you can tighten it.

9. Make sure you always own, 1 black, 1 nude, and 1 strapless.

10. Make sure you always use a bra bag when washing your bra’s.

11. Always, always, ALWAYS hang dry your bra’s.

A Few Things I Learned From Bookcon

This past weekend was the second annual Bookcon! It was absolutely amazing, I met some of my favorite authors, made some new friends, got a few new books, and I also learned a lot. I got to hear from some amazingly talented authors, and all of them had a lot of wisdom and insight to share with all of us, about writing, careers, friends, life, just everything. So here are all the things I learned this past weekend at Bookcon:

1. Try not to start or end your day on your phone. There is so much more to the world than just your twitter and Instagram, and I think a lot of people have forgotten that. So consider changing your routine, maybe instead of reaching straight for your trusty metal companion take a few minutes, appreciate the world around you. Say hi to your family, look at the trees do something that does not involve the internet.

2. Friend break up’s are a thing, and they hurt. When most people think break up they think about a significant other, but friend break ups are a thing and they can hurt even more. The truth is ending a friendship hurts, most of the time it hurts more than a regular breakup. Your best friends they get to know everything about you, they become apart of you and loosing them is like loosing a piece of yourself. But when this happens know you are not alone, there is nothing wrong with you. Other people have been where you are, and they got through it and so will you.

4. Define yourself before others have the chance to. People are always going to judge you no matter what. So forget about other peoples opinions, because the truth is no matter what you do you can’t please everyone. So you might as well piss them off being your true self rather than pissing them off being a fake version of you. So now go figure out who you are and just be that person.

5.Do what you need to stay calm. Everyone has that thing that helps them calm down when they are nervous or anxious. Whenever you get anxious or nervous do whatever you need to do to help you calm down. Whether it’s doing jumping jacks, twerking or singing some Taylor Swift. Don’t worry about if it’s going to bother someone else, or what other people may think. Worry about you and do whatever you need to calm you down.

6. Take the time to take care of yourself. I think this one is pretty self explanatory, but a lot of people still don’t do it. Just remember to take some time for yourself. Give yourself a facial, take a nice bubble bath, go shopping, binge watch a show, just treat yourself every once in a while.

7. Step away from your work. You don’t need to work all the time, especially if your an artist. As an artist your work should reflect people and life. If you work to much it will start to reflect other work instead of reflecting yourself. So step away from your work give yourself a break, then come back fresh faced and ready with tons of new ideas.

8. Just keep submitting your work. If you want to write, or paint or become a photographer or whatever, just keep submitting your work to people and eventually you will hear something back.

9. It’s not about the shares. Don’t write something because you think other people will love it and want to share it, write something because YOU want to write it. Write about what you know, about what you love and are passionate about, because writing is not about what other people think, it’s about expressing yourself.

10. Whenever your feeling bad about the way you look, go do something else. Go write in your journal or practice your music, just focus on something that has nothing to do with your looks. Remind yourself how awesome and talented you are, then remember that looks aren’t important, it’s all the other stuff that really matters.

Quote Of The Week

I love this quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, it’s probably one of my favorites. People can only make you feel bad if you let them make you feel that way. So from now on don’t give anyone permission to let you feel inferior or unworthy, or unimportant. Don’t give anyone permission to make you feel anything other than amazing, because that’s what you are….you are amazing! Don’t let anyone make you think differently.
