HAPPY FRIDAY FASHIONISTAS!
BEAUTY: I am in love with e.l.f. products and recently picked up this fabulous tinted lip balm with SPF 15. Only $3.00 and it’s super moisturizing with a touch of color plus it protects your smackers from harmful rays. For a lipgloss/lipbalm/lipstick addict, it’s perfect for casual days when you are heading to the gym, the pool or just hanging at home. Target has the biggest selection of e.l.f products!
STYLE: One of my fave “go to” items is a chic black blazer, but it can become boring when you wear it on a regular basis. The quickest ways to transform and add life to any boring outfit is to add a colorful statement necklace. I’m obsessed with this turquoise bib necklace I picked up on my trip to Africa a few years ago. A colorful geometric necklace is also super hot this Spring/Summer.
INSPIRATION: Toward the end of a long hike yesterday, I came across these wooden stairs. My legs were totally fatigued, but I had to climb these stairs to get to my car. Grrrrrrr- I just stood there panting and annoyed that I had to tackle these after I already made the long journey. Funny, this is such a profound symbolism for our life’s journey, isn’t it?! I had to snap a pic as a reminder. Of course, I sucked it up and climbed this short- but challenging- flight of stairs and made it to the finish line, my car and A/C. Just when you think you can’t go on any longer, remember you are stronger than you “feel” so keep climbing, keep going and never give up no matter what hurdles, mountains, valleys, potholes or staircases you encounter along the journey. Dig deeper and you will reach the finish line with hands waving in the air and breeze in your hair.
