Take time to breathe and re-set

12graceysmallDarlings, you may be sick of everyone from your mother to your yoga teacher telling you to breathe, but try it. When things get tense, hectic, or stressful, stop and breathe. Take a minute to “re-set.” Relax your shoulders, unclench your teeth, and stretch.  Make it habit and you will find your focus is better. When you feel overwhelmed take a few minutes to make a list. Listing tasks actually helps your mind to reorganize and work more clearly. 

Life is short, make it sweet. Take time to breathe.

Trends: Take them or leave them!

318013_10152434035650128_1123601145_n - CopyDarlings, this week we covered two very hot trends. I happen to love them both. But we cover many trends that I will never even try. They are not for me, but our job is to cover them and bring you the best way to wear them.   

At this stage of the game I know exactly what does not work for me and which trends will work for me. Two recent and popular trends that I had to pass on were skinny jeans and neon-bright eye shadow.  At my thinnest, and I have been about 100 pounds for much of my life, skinny jeans have never be this curvy-girl’s friend. And neon eye shadow is a very young woman’s look.  But they are both marvelous looks on the right woman. 

Entre nous, I sometimes have a passing pang for the skinny, but it passes so quickly it is barely worth mentioning.  At heart, I am a dress girl and always have been. As for the neon shadow, I have had my kick at that can and every other makeup trend that has come along as a lifelong beauty junkie turned beauty editor. 

Capes are wonderful trend.  They are chance to add a new look to your wardrobe that is also classic and will last for years. But it may also be a trend that leaves you cold. If so, pass on it. The great thing about trends is there is always another one and some of them will be just right for you.

Easy summer beauty

Gracey HitchcockSummer is the time to lighten up on your look. Try a little bronzer and tinted moisturizer instead of full-on foundation, and powder all the time. Pull your hair up in a ponytail or try fun braids!

But, don’t forget the sexy smoky eye and lip gloss for a beach party, or drinks by the dock. Easy doesn’t mean boring and sloppy.
 
Summer is hot and you should be too. Let the season move you.

Resist

Resist the urge to get involved in others’s disagreements. Sometimes you may have to step in, if someone is being bullied or unjustly treated. But often disagreements are the result of two people jockeying for power or position. There is nothing to be gained by getting involved in that, and it can even become costly and frustrating. 

You can be a loyal, supportive, and loving friend and still mind your own business –most independent adults will love you more for it. Learning how to support friends while staying true to yourself can be tricky, but it’s worth it.
 
Darlings, have a sweet week. Embrace all that life has to offer. Look for the best and the sweetest experiences and cherish them.

Start now!

 If you want to look better and feel better, start today. Make time for yourself to exercise and shop for healthful food. Find a good environment to work out in. Avoid or drop all saboteurs from your life. Spend time with those who encourage you and bring positive energy into your life. Learn to value your own company as well as that of good books and wise friends. You’ll be glad you did, as attitude and support can make all the difference to your success. Just think of how fabulous you will look and feel as you start the new year.

 
Darlings, have a sweet week and make every day special in small ways.

Never get too comfortable

Darlings, never get too comfortable. Being too relaxed can kill your mystique and your relationships. Keep the bathroom door closed, make an effort to look nice even when relaxing at home, and treat your friends and family as nicely as you do strangers. Boundaries are good things. Even if no one says so, too many “confessions” can make many people uncomfortable. Feel free to bare your soul, but only with your very best friends or family members – and only if they are discreet. Otherwise, save something!
