While looking up a few topics to discuss on last Friday’s podcast, I came across an article that grabbed my attention; 6 Simple Rituals To Reach Your Potential Every Day! I’m always trying to find positive articles and ways to make life a little better and I figured trying these 6 little rules couldn’t hurt. Below I have included the first 3 rules and you can click here for the rest of the article! ENJOY!
1. Drink a glass of water when you wake up. Your body loses water while you sleep, so you’re naturally dehydrated in the morning. A glass of water when you wake helps start your day fresh. When do you drink your first glass of water each day?
2. Define your top 3. Every morning Mike asks himself, “What are the top three most important tasks that I will complete today?” He prioritizes his day accordingly and doesn’t sleep until the Top 3 are complete. What’s your “Top 3” today?
3. The 50/10 Rule. Solo-task and do more faster by working in 50/10 increments. Use a timer to work for 50 minutes on only one important task with 10 minute breaks in between. Mike spends his 10 minutes getting away from his desk, going outside, calling friends, meditating, or grabbing a glass of water. What’s your most important task for the next 50 minutes?
As I watched the rerun of the Golden Globes red carpet on E!, I noticed that the smokey eye effect was lighting up everyone’s eyelids! It’s actually one of my favorite makeup looks for myself when I go out at night and my absolute favorite of the night was the one and only Jennifer Lopez. Her hair, dress and makeup was perfection, and she was one of the many who spruced up her eyes. Check this link for more details on all the starlets who wore the smokey eye effect on Sunday night and below you can see my very own smokey eyes!
I used a sheer eye shadow to cover my entire lid then a light purple to cover the crease and lower lid with black eye shadow on my upper and lower lash line. I finished the look with black eyeliner on the upper and lower lash line as well.
A little accessorizing can spice up any outfit and I’m all about the accessories! From belts to jewelry to bags, wallets, eye wear, scarves and hand bags, accessories are what can complete your look. Target is one of my go to stores because I always find an item to add to my closet. There’s always a cute dress, shoes I can’t live without, accessories or all of the above. Check out the cute belts I picked up on clearance for $3 each!! I will definitely be putting them to good use.
I’m always looking for books to read so while researching online I came across a few books that I need to read/reread. Check out the list below! I suggest you add these to your collection if you don’t already own them.
