#33 Getting a Genuine Compliment from a Stranger

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Getting compliments from people you know is always a great self esteem booster and can brighten up our day instantly.  However, getting a compliment from a stranger can be even more impactful.  They don’t know you, probably won’t ever see you again, and have no reason to talk to you other than to tell you something they like about you.  Think about the times where you have complimented a stranger.  It was because you really genuinely liked something about them and felt they absolutely had to know right?  Those are the compliments that can change your attitude and outlook and allow you to have an incredible day!



#32 Putting Yourself First

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

We as women are born nurturers.  We feel the need to take care of others and put their needs above our own and we genuinely enjoy it too!  While this is an amazing quality that we have, it is important to take “me” days.  Days where we do what we want when we want.   It can be as simple as cooking YOUR favorite meal for family dinner and as elaborate as treating yourself to a luxurious spa day.  In order for us to take care of others, we need to make sure that we, ourselves are taken care of first.  You will thank yourself for it!



#27 Picking Up Where You Left Off With An Old Friend

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Do you have those friends you only see or talk to every couple months but when you pick up it feels like no time has passed at all?  They are the best!  Life gets busy and more hectic as we get older and catching up with good friends can become difficult to do.  But when it happens, boy oh boy, it is just refreshing!  Chats about  guys, crying kids, career choices and not enough time to just breathe are so much more comforting when we realize we are not alone.  It is amazing that we can feel so connected to people even if we don’t see or talk to them every day.  Pamper Me Fabulous is always a great way to just chat and relax with your best girls! Just knowing you have a friend you can catch up with anytime is one of the greatest feelings a girl can have!

#26 Seeing the Light at the End of the Tunnel

Monday, April 08, 2013

We all go through hard times and feel like we have circumstances that just cannot get any better.  Being in a dark place is tough on our spirit and as women, can affect everything else in our lives that we have going on.  Seeing the positives, as small as they may be, will allow our spirit to be brightened and strengthened.  Those little things that can instantly bring a smile to our faces will help us see the light at the end of the tunnel and reassure us that we are strong enough to overcome and we come out better than before!

#23 Fabulous Things We Love: Matching Bra & Underwear

Monday, February 18, 2013
As women we are designed to want to feel beautiful and even a little sexy!  Behold! The hidden “sexy” power of hidden matching bra and underwear.  There is something to be said about the pampering feeling we get when wearing a matching lingerie set and being the only one let in on the secret.  So bring it on matching lace, leopard, polka dot, sating and bright neon's!  We like that we can control our destiny from the moment we get up.  Forget wearing this for a hot date, we’re wearing this for ourselves!

  

#16 Fabulous Things We Love: Breathing

Tuesday, September 20, 2011


Breathing, though automatic and absolutely vital to our being is something that we tend to forget about. Thank god, we don't have to think about taking a breath in and a breath out at every moment of the day and night, we would never sleep, we would never do anything else. It is a blessing that our human bodies have been provided for by nerves that function without command. Still as wonderful as that is, today I noticed again, something that I, like my breathing have mot thought about in a while. And that is, that sometimes we do need to remind ourselves to breathe, not for our bodies, but for out mind.

At my new job today in a physical therapy practice I noticed patients, holding their breath and concentrating on everything but their breath. They were trying to so hard to do everything right that they forgot to nurture the aspect of themselves that provides oxygen, energy to preform. I think that in our everyday life we get so wrapped up thinking about trying to do " everything right" - that we forget the essential part of taking a breather, to clear out mind and to focus on ourselves, so that we might perform on our highest level. Nurturing ourselves we actually are not being selfish, we are allowing a more energetic, happy Self. Remember today to take a breath, practice breathing into your belly, into your ribs and into your breast bone. Thats why I love Yoga, because aside from nuturing your body and making it strong and flexible - it focuses on the importance of breath. Inhale the new and fresh present moment and release the used no longer needed!
