Link Love: Be Happy!

Photo Credit: Sugar Paper

Today's Link Love is dedicated to getting happy. I found four links that brought a smile to my face and hopefully they can do the same for you. Hope you enjoy!
  • 19 Mindblowing Historical Doppelgangers: After finding this link on Anne the Adventurer, I had to share this with you. Some of them made me laugh and others were like OMG he/she totally looks like that celebrity. Haha! If you want a nice laugh check it out. Doppelgangers: An apparition or double of a living person (according to Apple's dictionary if you didn't know what that word meant). 
  • Lily's Disneyland Surprise!: If you guys haven't already watched the video, you have to watch it. Make sure your not around anyone. Lol. This video made me cry. I got this link from Jess Lively's blog. And I thought I share it with you. So hopefully it brings you happiness.
  • Kate Spade New York Spring 2013: Katie from All Glammed Up shows you Kate Spade's Spring 2013 collection and is freaking amazing. You will leave the post with a smile. I'm totally inspired. How about you?
  • Joe Biden Accidentally blurts out "I'm proud to be president of the United States: And my favorite part of this weekend was this clip. Joe Biden accidentally says he is president of the United States… oops! Haha. Oh well… at least I know that the leaders of our country have a little sense of humor :) Makes them seem more human. This totally made my day! Have a great weekend everyone.

Peplum Tops

Peplum Tops

Let me start by saying I did not start liking peplum tops the first time I set my eyes on them. I was iffy about them not knowing how to wear them. Then many bloggers started styling them and then I thought, okay maybe I can incorporate this trend into my own wardrobe.

Even though I don't have one yet, the store I work in has brought many styles and different colors into their Spring collection, and I can't wait for my extra discount to buy one.

Here are some of my favorite tops from Express. Hope you like :)

Link Love: New Year, New Way of Thinking!

Perfectionism is a dream killer... -Mastin Kipp

Since is the new year, I thought why not do a link love list of things I recently came upon on the web. Here are a few website's that offer insightful information that might be of use to you. I know it definitely was for me. New year, new way of thinking! Enjoy!

  • Decreasing Negative Self-Talk: Jess Lively offers an insightful look on negative self-talk. She also suggests a few examples on how to decrease them.
  • No More Planning! Time For Action!: Mastin Kipp talks about how we always plan before we actually do something. We plan till its perfect and then take our leap. But sometimes, planning till its perfect will never come. That's true and I have learned this along the way of my life and planning for everything, waiting for it to feel or seem like its perfect and take the leap. But I found out that sometimes its best to just do it! And eventually you'll find what your looking for. And he explains his experience as well. Perfect read for you to get inspired and take action this new year.
  • Redefining Beauty: I was in love with this article written by Natalie from Thoughts by Natalie. This article in the beginning made me cry. I became tear eyed a bit reading how Leah described her body. Its amazing how many of us don't view it that way. It made me sad. The 4 steps Natalie wrote to redefine beauty were amazing. I would definitely try to incorporate these in my life more often. Especially when I talk to someone else and try not talk negatively about someone else or comment on things I don't like about a celebrity when I see their picture online or magazine (though I learned not to do this. But I do catch myself commenting on their fashion. Need to stop!). Definitely a good read. 
  • Vision Boards: If you didn't think vision boards can help set your goals, actress Shay Mitchell thinks otherwise. I think setting goals are very important, at least to me. Sometimes seeing them visually can make all the difference. In this post Shay Mitchell gives you some ideas on how to create your own vision board. Here is to 2013, and making our dreams come true :)

Get Warm - With Sweatshirts

My favorite way to feel warm during the winter season is to wear a cute warm sweatshirt under my coat or jacket.

I am in desperate need of new cute sweatshirts for this season, since Los Angeles has been getting pretty cold. I surfed the web to find some cute sweatshirts and found these cuties, all from forever 21 (& affordable). Hope you enjoy. Stay warm this season.

Get Warm - Sweaters

My Everyday Style: I love to keep it casual

How do you stay warm this season? I would love to know, since So Cal doesn't get too many freezing temps. So would love to know how everyone else in the world stays warm :)

New Year's Resolution>> New Workout Gear

The new year brings a lot of resolutions for many of us. For most people, staying fit and loosing weight is their main goals.

I think what better way to motivate you to stay in shape this new year, than cute workout clothes.

Adding a little pop of color to your wardrobe will motivate you to wear them and hit the gym. So I gathered a few cute clothing items to spruce up your workout wardrobe.

Good Luck!

New Workout Gear for 2013

1.  Bottoms: What better way to spruce up your wardrobe than fun colorful shorts these are from Target for only $9.99. You can wear them with a neutral black or white tank or spice it up with a color opposite from it to create a colorblock look.
Or you can keep your bottoms neutral like these Aerie yoga pants only $19.99
* My tip when shopping for bottoms are to bend over while trying them on. This will help check if your pants are not see through. I find most yoga and dance pants are see through and show the color of your underwear.

2. Tanks: If your not too wild about color keep pants black and spice up your outfit with a colorful tank like this one for $12.99 or this one for $26.99. Both are from Target.

3. Sports Bra:  Another excellent thing to buy are sports bras. Depending on your size I find Moving Comfort has a big selection for different types of chest size that are comfortable and supportive. The above picture shows this one for small chested individuals and this one for bigger chested women. Target also holds plenty of cute colorful sports bra on the cheap side.

4. Shoes: If bright colored clothing is not your thing, try wearing them in your shoes. Cute way to add a touch of pizzazz to your wardrobe. Try these:
Women's C9 by Champion Exalt Athletic- Pink/White $24.99 
Nike Free Advantage in Fireberry/Bordeaux/White/Thunder Blue $79.99
Nike Free Advantage in Calypso/White/New Green/Siren Red $79.99

Good Luck on your new year's resolutions,
