Sparkle and Shine into 2016!

Wednesday, December 30, 2015 4:00 AM

Sometimes around the holidays so many of our outfits revolve around sequins and sparkle
 (see earlier post from this week), paying little to no attention to shine. When I saw these Alice and Olivia trousers I immediately fell in love.  The jewel toned material felt and looked luxurious.  I have worn them countless times and styled them differently each time.  Dressed up or down, they are definitely a statement piece.  

Now onto a resolution or four...
I hate making promises I can't keep. Resolutions are exactly that for me, promises to myself that I can not (or do not) keep, so I will keep them brief.  Instead of the the regular 'I will read more, work out more, be more present, blah blah blah'...

1. I will take care of myself this year. PERIOD.
Physically and mentally.

2. Other than my son of course, I will not live my life to make anyone else happy.  What is good for some people may not be good for others. I will do what is good for me.

3.  I will not fear judgement from others because they are unhappy with themselves.

4. I will try my hardest to not engage in gossip or talking negatively about myself or others
Last year I adopted the old adage 'If it doesn't involve me, it doesn't concern me' and truly it has made me a happier person.

What are some of your resolutions??

I hope you all have a happy and safe New Year!
xx, Elise
