BLUSHCIOUS LIPS

img_7333

Here’s a quick SOS beauty tip! Last week, I received several compliments on my lip color and how plump/luscious they looked. I’m loving the nudes and blush pinks right now even for Fall. It’s such an easy look to achieve!

First, make sure to add a touch of concealer around your lips then line with liner just outside your lip line to make them appear larger. Here are the products I used in the above photo:

  1. Lip liner by NYX in natural

3. Heroes Beauty Luxe Lip Gloss in bombshell

Whatcha up to this weekend?

Remember to take some time to pamper yourself.

Let me know if you try my luscious lip trick.

Might attempt a video on it. I’ve never really done makeup tutorials. Stay tuned!

Love + Lipgloss,

SUNDAY AFFIRMATIONS OVERLOAD

Can_will

Hey Beautiful,

I was brainstorming and praying for guidance for this Sunday’s topic and was curious of when and how I started posting the Sunday Affirmations.  I looked back over the history of blog posts and found that I started them last June.  There are several new blog subscribers so I thought I would explain what it’s all about and why I chose Sunday to post affirmations. 

Last year, I started noticing a few of my girlfriends– who have small children– venting every Sunday night at how exhausted they were and they hated to start the week totally frazzled and depleted.  We should be refueled and raring to go on Monday morning, right?!  With a few small adjustments, I think we can all feel energized and at peace as we approach the end of the weekend and get prepared for the week.  By setting boundaries, taking “me time”, declining social invitations (and not feeling guilty about it), make a ‘must do’ list and saying positive affirmations– we set our mind and attitude toward having a successful week instead of dreading Monday.  I had fun reading through some of the old affirmations and decided to create a long inspiring list of ones that I need to REAFFIRM and thought you might as well!

THIS WEEK I WILL……

  • Follow my bliss.
  • Smile more.
  • Love + Laugh harder.
  • Embrace my own unique beauty + style.
  • Celebrate my life instead of complain about it.
  • Read a spiritually rich book.
  • Count my blessings every single day.
  • Put my shoulders back, walk tall + shine my light!
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Pamper myself.
  • Walk in Grace + Peace, no matter what grouch crosses my path.
  • Love my body by getting enough exercise.
  • Shut up my Negative Nellie.
  • Wear my invisible crown because I am a Queen!
  • Try something new…new food, new route to work, new bold accessory.
  • Honor the healthy boundaries I’ve set.
  • Not leave the house w/o my best accessory….my beautiful smile.
  • Be courageous no matter how “wimpy” I may feel.
  • Eat foods rich in antioxidants because my body is a temple.
  • Practice more patience.
  • Help others without expecting anything in return.
  • See myself as healthy, whole, happy and HOT.
  • Send a “just because” hand written note to a dear friend.
  • Take time to decompress.
  • Compliment myself once a day.
  • Embrace that quirk about myself that I’ve always hated.
  • Remove “I’m worried that_” from my vocab.
  • Make more time for girltime.
  • Ignore catty women.  They’re just insecure…poor things.
  • Snack on blueberries + almonds instead of cheese nips + skittles.
  • CELEBRATE ME!
  • Turn my back on mediocrity.
  • Be fabulous not frazzled.
  • Not base my identity on how I look, what I wear or own. I am a Child of God!
  • Book a spa day + massage because I deserve it.
  • Check something fun off my bucketlist.
  • Focus on being healthy instead of the number on the scale.
  • Surround myself with other women of excellence.
  • Listen to a friend in need w/o having to “one up” her story.
  • Be integrity driven, not emotionally driven.
  • Believe in myself more than ever.
  • Choose the side salad instead of the fries.
  • Listen to my gut + stop ignoring it.
  • Start + end each day with a prayer of gratitude.
  • Have more fun w/ fashion + wear a flirty dress.
  • Walk in L-O-V-E not fear.
  • Surrender, take a deep breath and then exhale.
  • NEVER GIVE UP!
  • Step into my greatness…even if it’s one baby step in that direction.
  • Give myself a pat on the back instead of beating myself up.
  • Attend a movie, concert or seminar that inspires me.
  • Lift light weights regularly. It helps my bone density!
  • Go big + stop playing rinky-dink.
  • RADIATE!

I don’t know about you, but I’m totally amped up for the week ahead after reading that list! WooHoo!

Hey Firecracker!

How was your Christmas?  I hope you were surrounded with lots of love + laughter and beautiful memories were made with family and friends.  Now it’s time to switch gears and talk about how YOU are going to make a statement on New Year’s Eve.  Whether you are attending an intimate dinner party at a friends house or heading to a big glamorous party, I believe we should all ring in the new year looking and feeling our absolute best.  What are you going to wear??  In today’s webisode, I suggest bypassing the boring LBD, making a statement, being bold and getting your sparkle on!

WATCH THIS:

 

1. Rock a Bold Color

No matter what your plans are for New Year’s Eve….wherever you are– please take a moment to visualize how you want 2013 to look.  Set your intention on having a successful, prosperous, healthy and happy year.

Declare, “I AM GOING TO HAVE A FABULOUS YEAR”.  Even take it a step further and create a vision board for 2013 and also write out your goals + affirmations.  I’ve been doing this for about 12-13 years now and it’s transformed my life.  I know it may sound a bit silly and simple, but it is truly powerful!

Upload your new year’s outfit to the Facebook Page so we can all see how hot you look!

Shine On,

Tiff
