Happy Friday!!! I hope that everyone is enjoying the beautiful summer weather and taking the time to relax.
I definitely have been taking the time to myself and just focusing on getting back into the swing of things after such a difficult time. I have come to realize that there is nothing wrong with simply slowing down. I must admit that it is pretty awesome, to just kick back and not feel guilty about it. It's a fascinating feeling and one that I am not quite used to :)
Life is quite an adventure and some times things happen that throw you into a whirlpool of hate and fear, but to be quite honest I do believe that everything does happen for a reason. Through the hard times, a personal learns to discover ones strength and it is a very liberating feeling. Which is exactly how I feel now, liberated! I think that knowing that you can handle anything that life throws at you is exactly what allows you to go on as a stronger and better person. I do not mean to sound like I am preaching, but I hope that those who are going through a difficult time do realize that everything will be alright. Just take the time to focus on yourself... and just spoil yourself!
I've been definitely "spoiling" myself by:
♥ taking the time to read Karen Essex's Stealing Athena ( I will definitely share my thoughts once I am done)
♥ doing lots of yoga
♥ spending a lot of time in the park with my little man, Johnny (my cocker spaniel)
♥ by taking the time for mani and pedi's
♥ visiting my esthetically a little more often
♥ taking that extra 5 minutes while getting dressed
♥ grabbing Starbuck's and just reading for joy
♥ spending lots of time with my loved ones
♥ spending lots of time with my girlies
♥ purchasing an item or two that I've wanted for a while.
♥ long bubble baths
♥ watching every FiFa game
♥ watching Pretty Woman, Dirty Dancing, Devil Wears Prada and Marie Antoinette.
Time to me is a luxury and having the opportunity to spend it on myself is definitely the best way to spoil oneself!
As for today's outfit, I wore it earlier this morning to run a few errands. I've been really loving my Ash wedges...not only because they are super casual but also work with just about anything! Plus, they go sooo perfectly with my new hair color....just joking, but it is true :D Today, I finally had the chance to wear my new Marc by Marc Jacobs giraffe top with the new Marc by Marc Jacobs rings... I know my obsession with all things Marc Jacobs continues, I just can't help myself! Honestly, I think that Marc has the best tee shirts as they wear amazingly well and wash even better. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who likes simple but fun tops. As for the rings, I couldn't have asked for a better accessory... they are perfection!I am wearing: ♥ Marc by Marc Jacobs " word giraffe" top—from Holt Renfrew ♥ Talula Babaton beige Shorts—from Aritzia ♥ Wilfred Boyfriend Linen Blazer— from Aritzia ♥ Wilfred Leather Neutral Belt— from Aritzia ♥ Ash UFO Wedges— from Holt Renfrew Last Call ♥ Marc by Marc Jacobs " House of Cards Court Harem" ring set— from shopbop.com ♥ Michael Kors Watch—a gift ♥ Chanel Sunglasses—a gift
Well, I am off to get ready for dinner with one of my girlies...
But before I leave I must know, What do you do to spoil yourself????
Wishing Everyone a Beautiful Weekend!!!
