With everyone sipping mimosas at brunch and hash tagging #mybestlife, I know you are seeing many boss babes on your timeline. If you didn't catch on yet, this is the season for growth and glow. And honey, I can promise you this glow isn't just from my favorite highlighter! Here are my 6 reasons why I am glowing and if you practice these, you can be a #GlowGirl too
1. Positive Vibes Only
Whether I am out with friends, alone consumed in my own thoughts, or at the job, I only accept positive vibes only! I truly believe in the "Law of Attraction"- by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, people can bring positive or negative experiences into their life. If I am ever down in a rut, I pray! If you are a "Negative Nancy", I distance myself from you as much as possible. Snip , Snip,Simple! I have realized that life is too short to focus on negativity! No, I do not live in a fairytale world where good things always happen. But, I know that the "Bad" doesn't last always! Whatever you are going through in life is only temporary. Remember, after every storm the Sun will smile.
2. Practice Weekly Self-care
If you haven't realized by now, I am an advocate for #SelfCare! In a world full of busy schedules, meetings, and tons of work loads, we all deserve some "me-time" to relax, right! I dedicate AT LEAST one day a week to focus on myself. Challenge yourself to do the same! Whether it be a Saturday brunch date, Mani-pedi, or binge watching Insecure, put down your phone and close out the world. You deserve it! I have learned that Self-Care is essential to mental and physical health BUT beware too much self-care could be acute laziness.
3. Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate!
If you truly want to shine, you have to get rid of all that dirt and grime! Exfoliation involves the removal of the oldest dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface. Most people don't realize that it is important to not just exfoliate your face, but also your entire body! Try out my favorite full body exfoliate by clicking the image or get creative at home and make your own.
The secret is simple, Smile! I have a confession, every time I pass or look into a mirror, I smile. Any chance I get, I smile! Why not? I have a lot of reasons to be happy and I am sure you do too! If you did not know, smiling builds confidence. If you don't believe me, try it for yourself! Put on a bomb outfit, say cheese, and tell me how you feel! Make sure to tag #MyBossyLife in your post, I would love to share!
Okay I'll be honest, my highlighter does deserve some credit. Highlighter is definitely a girl's best friend and will add some glow to you! If you have been searching for an inexpensive low cost highlighter, look no further! My favorite highlighter is only $6 at Ulta.
6. I AM HAPPY, IN REAL LIFE!
You should strive to be happy in real life and not just on social media. Happiness is not about getting a bunch of likes on instagram or bragging to the world what you are up too. It is about loving who you are, what you are doing, and where you are going. True happiness starts from within. Ironically the more happy (and busy) I get in my real life, the more distant I become to social media. I am struggling to find a median between doing this for me, and doing this for others to see. Social media is fun and I love it, but let's just make sure you are happy for you, and just for your timeline!
