TIFF’S TWENTY TIPS {or affirmations}….for a happy life!


Happy Sunday Sistas!  

I was looking back through my old blog posts and decided to re-post these simple tips along with encouraging you all to watch the brilliant little documentary called “Happy”.

It’s playing on Netflix right now and I highly, highly recommend it.  It’s one of those ‘go to’ films we need to watch whenever we start to complain about our life.  Here’s a sneak peek:


Obviously by now, if you have been following my blog for a while– you know that SOS is not just about finding the perfect shade of lipstick or those killer heels.  It’s about the dual approach of feeling your best AND looking your best.  Audrey Hepburn said it simply yet eloquently, “The happiest girls are the prettiest girls”.   No amount of botox, bronzer, Christian Louboutin’s or curling irons can do what true inner peace, self-love and happiness can do for a gal!  Here’s my tips or affirmations for a happy life and I would LOVE to hear one of yours.  Please comment and share!
