How Do You Wish to be Addressed?

MONDAY MOTIVATION! 

I love this…

Think about it! I’m not going to give you my two-cents on it…I just want you to ponder this:

How do you plan to STRUT IT this week?

If your Negative Nellie is taking over and winding you up into complaining about how you hate Monday’s- ignore her and stick your fingers in your ears and go LaLaLaLaLa! I allowed her to take over last week and I realized it was because I needed to unplug from the world and get quiet. I was running on empty! So, my hubby and I took a weekend STAYCATION! I went offline and tried to stay off the computer as much as possible. Kept my phone on silent and actually read 2 whole books. WHAT? Yes, I got still enough to read without distraction. It’s been a while! We watched old classic films with homemade popcorn and just enjoyed one another’s presence. The only time we left the house was for church. Highly recommend it! This is why I harp on the importance of taking “ME” time. Women act like they are the energizer bunny, but that’s a surefire way to get sick, depressed and hit total burnout. Now, I realize we don’t have kids so it’s easy to plan this so plan a weekend staycation and send the kids to their grandparents or  friends house. There is something beautiful about creating a zen like atmosphere in your home especially when it’s usually loud & chaotic. 

DO IT.

Have a blessed week!

Love, Tiff

 

 

 

What message are you sending?

Hi my fellow rockstars!

For the new year, has anyone decided to revamp their style?  Maybe you are a Boho chic hippie and want to change things up to appear more polished…

OR maybe you want to be more bold + creative with accessories…OR maybe you live in your gym clothes 24/7 and need a total style over-haul…OR maybe you’re on the frumpy side and want to hone your inner Sophia Vergara!  

Remember your image is a non-verbal message to the world.  What message are you sending?    For example, what’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the hippie look?  A care-free, artistic person, right?   It’s interesting– there is so much debate lately about Kate Hudson being the new face of the clothing line, Ann Taylor.   Every style blogger is blogging about the subject (Ha, myself included). The reason for all the debate is the very topic of IMAGE.   Kate is known for her youthful, bohemian, free-spirit look and attitude. Ann Taylor is an upscale, chic women’s line known for it’s feminine business suiting.  Most people do not see Kate & Ann Taylor as a fit– image wise.   But, perhaps Ann Taylor wants to revamp the brands IMAGE and maybe Kate is growing up and wants to change the “message” she’s sending the world!

Do you want to revamp your image this year?

Your image and personal style is a creative expression of  YOU!  Look over your life since you were a teenager and you’ll see how as you’ve grown and developed– so has your style.   I started experimenting with fashion and developing my own unique style when I was in Junior High. (Thanks Mom for allowing me this creative outlet and putting up with me playing on your sewing machine).  One day I looked like Madonna and the next day I looked like Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s–and a week later I looked like a Cyndi Lauper wannabe- Geesh!  Not cute!  Then in my 20’s I had the model/club/party girl look down. Most of my wardrobe was from Bebe, Express and Rave (which was a lower version of Contempo). Yikes I’m totally dating myself! WHO REMEMBERS CONTEMPO?  My BFF and I went through a mini-skirt and platform combat boot phase (I wish I had a photo to show you).  Let’s just forget all about the “message” we were sending the world.  Delete- delete-delete!  Hey,  that’s what your 20’s are for- trial and error, right! 

Jump to TODAY- what message are you actually sending to the world?  Do you want to change it or are you perfectly happy and confident in your IMAGE?  At the end of the day, you have to be happy with your reflection in the mirror and comfortable in your own skin, but if you want to be a real estate powerhouse- the Boho Chic look is not going to help you sell those $5M mansions.   Assess your message!

A HEALTHY REMINDER:

I highly recommend adding fresh juices to your lifestyle!  I’ve been juicing for about a month and feel amazing. Carrot, ginger, apple, celery and sometime beet, kale or blueberries!

NEW WEBISODE COMING NEXT WEEK!  Remember to send me comments, your 2 cents and feedback! Please share this with your friends too. I appreciate it!

Love,

Tiff
