  • Have you set any goals you want to share or have you created a vision board?
  • NEVER ABANDON YOURSELF TO PLEASE ANOTHER (Mastin Kipp) This is the worst kind of abandonment. Today, let’s not worry about the opinion of others. Let’s not give our power away because we feel we need the approval of other people.  Say YES to ourselves, and NO to the world, if need be…and not feel bad about it!

Tiff’s Top 15 with the Icing + Cherry on Top…Yummm!

Now come on…you know there are WAY more than 15 items I think we all need in our wardrobe!   For the sake of time (and it ended up being a long webisode anyway) I narrowed it down to my Top 15 across the board whether you’re a die-hard fashionista or simply stylish!  BUT, here is the icing + cherry on top…yummmm!   I’m giving you 5 more must have’s and if there’ s an item you love that I haven’t mentioned– come on- don’t hold out on us…SHARE IT GIRL!

1. PEEP-TOE BOOTIE

They’re sexy and you can wear them with pants or skirts. Instantly makes you feel flirty. Make sure to have a fresh pedi!

 

2. DAYTIME “Signature” CHARM/ PENDANT

I adore charm necklaces!  Especially the ones given to me by someone dear to me.   It makes me think of them while I wear it:-)  Whether it’s a diamond heart-shaped pendant, a healing stone or your initial-  I love them all.  I think my Grandma started giving me charm necklaces when I was about 5 yrs old.  Hey, start ’em young!

3. KNEE-LENGTH PENCIL SKIRT (preferably black)

Bowchickabowbow!  These skirts are way more sexy (in my opinion) than a mini-skirt!  They flatter just about every body type whether you have stick straight boy hips or a beautiful hourglass figure.  Make sure to get one with a great stretch and a bit of a higher waist.  They’re timeless and hot, but oh so classy!

4. COLORFUL SCARF

This little item is an instant mood lifter!  I function better when it’s sunny outside so on the days that are rainy and dreary, I throw on a bright scarf to change my mood!

5. AVIATOR SHADES

These are my ALL TIME favorite sunglasses for several reasons!  1) They are light-weight so I love to wear them when I’m powerwalking or hiking.  2) They have the little rubber grips for the bridge of my nose so they stay put.  I can’t stand how the oversized shades rest on my cheeks!  3) They just look plain COOL!  Everyone looks great in aviators.  They’re timeless and will never go out-of-style!  ROCK ‘EM!

Finally, the cherry on top:  A SPARKLY, STUNNING SMILE!

I consider this THE most important must have accessory that you should never leave home without!  It doesn’t matter if you are wearing the most gorgeous couture Gucci outfit, if you aren’t rockin’ a beautiful smile along with it…well, you might as well go back home and start all over girl.  You  just wasted about $2 Grand on nada!  Great news for you gals who may have a non-existent shopping budget right now because you’re paying off student loans–if you are sporting a stunning smile–people don’t really notice what you are wearing anyway! They’re captured and impressed by YOU and the confidence that a smile exudes!  NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT!

ANNOUNCING THE SOS BEACH BAG GIVEAWAY!

Are you as excited as I am that summer has arrived?  To kick it off,  we’re creating a monstrous SOS BEACH BAG to give to one fabulous SOS fashionista!

WHAT’S INSIDE THE BAG?

  • A bottle of my sister’s exclusive essential oil based parfume called CORPUS DEI.  Her very own creation!   During the summer it’s great to wear an oil instead of a heavy alcohol cologne/parfume because our body temp’s are constantly changing going from the heat of the outdoors to the A/C indoors.  Don’t you notice your parfume turns funny on your skin in the summer?  Try an essential oil instead!
  • Several products from SALERM COSMETICS including an awesome SPF 20 body spray, UV hair protector and fun summer nail polish colors!

  • PLUS, the Super Greens & Maca Powder that I’ve been raving about, Voluminous Waterproof Mascara, a great summer read and MUCH MORE!
  • We’ve added a great fun, summer read by http://www.deborahcloyed.com called “The Summer We Came To Life” recommended by my sis.
