Valentines Day Decoration Ideas

Valentines-day-decor-ideas

Welcome to wonderful Wednesday friends. 

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared anything decor on the blog; and Valentines Day being around the corner, I can start feeling “love in the air; so what better time to share this V-day decor ideas with you!

Even though I believe and agree with the comment most people make about love being celebrated everyday, or any given occasion, I also believe that reminiscing love on a certain day, just like how we celebrate our birthdays, isn’t a bad thing in its own.

That been said, If you do celebrate Valentines day, and decide to throw a little party with your closed friends and family, or a romantic dinner just for the two of you, these ideas might just help you pull off a nice and memorable decor and just raise up the ambiance. So let’s start with the entry door, and make our way inside, shall we?  😀

6 Things to do for a successful 2019

How-to-have-a-successful-year

Happy Monday beauties,

Often, we all need a little bit of inspiration here and there; and today, I feel that I should share with you these 6 things that, I believe if you follow will help you achieve your goals this year.

 

1 – Meditate and Pray

Daily meditations, affirmations, and prayers are a life-changer, whether you believe in God, the universe, or the source.

2- Set Realistic Goals

 New year resolutions are quite frankly becoming “old things”. Why? Well, because, for whatever reasons, they’re hard to stick to. “The new year, new me” phrase has gotten so much cliche, but I believe that as long as you set realistic and measurable goals, you should be able to work towards them and make things happen. – Read the post “Goals vs Commitments” HERE for more insights on the subject.

3- Choose A Word Of The Year.

If you don’t know, this is being the new “it” thing most “goals diggers” are leaning towards these days. As mentioned earlier, new year’s resolutions can be complex things to do. Not that people can’t and don’t stick to them. It’s statistically proven that less than 22% of ‘new-year-resolutioners’ actually keep up with and meet their goals! If you do, Bravo! More power to you and keep up with the great work! However, choosing a word for the year gives you more chance to be focused on that very word which, in many ways, will ultimately help in staying focused in achieving your goals. – Need more insights on this subject? This article may help.

4- Be consistent

Consistency is key in everything we do. You can’t achieve anything if you are not consistent in what needs to be done to get there. This is something dear and near to my heart that I’m working on everyday.

Being consistent with the little things as reading my devotional everyday, for example or being consistent with my blog is critical for me to get to where I want to be. When you want great results, you’ve got to keep doing what needs to be done – Like they say, content is king, but consistency is queen !

5- Get inspired.

It’s a great and smart thing to look for inspiration in others, but learn to remain true to yourself. Trying to be someone you’re not and copying their every little moves will not do you any good. The only thing it would is keep you from being or becoming who you’re truly destined to be.
You can find inspiration in people, books, social media, TV shows, art… pretty much almost everywhere as long you keep your eyes and mind open for those bits and pieces, but make it your own. Add that touch of YOU! Authenticity is a quality that is not only easily recognized and applauded, but it will take you a long way.

6- Have faith and believe in yourself!

 Have faith in God or whatever higher power you believe in and believe that you can do great things. If you don’t believe in yourself, (no one else will and) you can’t accomplish anything! An undeniable key to success is believing in one self.

Not everyone is highly talented and too smart (sorry, but it’s the truth), but anyone that believe in their ability to work hard, practice, and make things happen and succeed, in fact, will succeed even when they’re not talented! – BELIEVE TO ACHIEVE!

Bonus

Read more, learn new things, do more of what you love, travel when you can, have meaningful conversations. Life is too short and too precious to be wasted on things that take you nowhere. This year, try to invest your time in doing things that will help you be the best version of yourself.  (See more about reading here! )

Thank you for reading and make it a great week.

Love & Light,

Girl Boss & Future Girl Boss

fashion-blogger-and-her-daughter

Happy New Week and Happy New Month (girl) bosses!

The holiday is in full swing and Christmas is in just a few weeks! Can you believe that!? December may be the last month of the year, but we hope that it’s the best one! If there’s any 2018 goal you haven’t met yet on your list, just remember that the year isn’t just over yet; and muster up the courage to finish strong, just like the boss of the girl boss you are.

Speaking of Girl boss, I was delighted to partake in this photo shoot with my mini-me for a “mother-daughter” look in our organic cotton shirts courtesy of @augustmamas. It’s amazing that women are  working hard and crushing goals, like the girls bosses that we are and deserve to be; but what’s even better than that? If you ask me, I would say raising future girl bosses! They are the future, and teaching them to be the best version of themselves, and setting ambitious and “ridiculous” goals starts today! And guess what? It starts with you! This being said, let’s keep those little ones close by; let them see you grinding… most importantly, let them see your positive energy when you do so and let them see you fully enjoy the fruit of that hard work! Be The Role Model! Be The Blueprint!

Here’s to all the girl bosses out there grinding hard, keeping the faith, and staying the course!

To raising future girl bosses! Cheers!

What I’m grateful for… Shift your perspectives.

Beautiful-multicultural-fashion-blogger

Happy Thanksgiving, friends.

With a heart full of gratitude, I want to make a quick stop here not only to wish you a happy thanksgiving and to thank you for being part of my journey and for continually supporting me, but to also share some wise words of gratitude with you. Even though life can get really crazy and overwhelming at times with all of our different issues – issues which make it hard to remain grateful at all times, I realize that shifting our perspectives to see the good in everything is the key to true happiness. 

Today, as you celebrate with loved ones, I want you to shift your perspective and turn your complaints into gratitude; and here’s an article I previously shared that never gets old.

So what am I grateful for? 

I’m grateful for… 

1- Early wake-ups = Children to love

2- House to clean = Safe place to live

3- Laundry = Clothes to wear 

4- Dishes to wash = Food to eat 

5- Crumbs under the diner table = Family meals 

6- Grocery shopping = Money to put food on the table

7- Toilets to clean = Indoor plumbing

8- Lots of noise = People in my life

9- Endless questions about homework = Kids’ brains growing

10- Sore and tired in bed = I’m still alive!

What are you grateful for?  

I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving!

Love & Blessings, 

Edwige.
