Pin Review: “Courage, dear heart” By The Clever Clove

Originally posted on mailbox mermaid:
What incredible luck I’ve had with “seconds” pins of late! My?newly beloved mousemoth pin?(about which I apparently cannot stop talking) is practically perfect in every way, even though I bought it at a wonderful discount, and, in a similar vein, I am nothing but impressed by this seconds-sale enamel pin with a courageous theme from The Clever Clove on Etsy. (Watch me refer to it not-so-sneakily in every one of?next?week’s updates!) As I’ve alluded in previous posts (to put it lightly), exactly a week ago I faced a surgical fear that has haunted me for?nearly a decade. I know that wisdom teeth extractions are pretty commonplace here in the states, but as someone with incredible needle anxiety, I have dreaded this day since I first turned sixteen and learned that I did indeed have a quartet of those unwanted beasts. I had to get it done–and I was remarkably brave in the days leading up to it!–so when I randomly stumbled upon* this beautifully designed pin quoting my favorite?inspirational lion,…

Learn to Laugh More

Originally posted on Ramona Crisstea:
I wanted to approach a new subject in this post that is different from the usual tips for dressing. I wanted to talk about something that is related to happiness and that is laughter. Through laughter we express out joy. Concentrate on the present moment because it is rich enough. Try to tell yourself that nothing is permanent, even the worries and unhappy moments. In addition to that remember that laughter is essential. The laughter can lit us from inside and help get through a rough day. You can take out of the wardrobe the most unconventional clothes and wear them. Moreover smile while doing so and get out of anonymity. You will see how everyone notices you and that is a good thing. This little thing can be on your list that makes you happy and remember to be grateful and joyful every day.

MVMT Watches: Company Review

Originally posted on Me, Myself and Everything Else:
Happy Wednesday! This week has been something else! I have lots to share soon but until then I wanted to share a company I’ve been loving lately. I also want to mention this is not a sponsored post.? MVMT watches have been getting more and more popular lately and with their?cool crisp style I can see why! The minute I saw them I new I had to have one! I originally snagged one for my boyfriend ?and he loves it as well! After seeing how much he loved his, he surprised me (with my not so subtle hints) with one for Valentine’s Day!? About a month after having my watch I noticed the time kept being off. No matter how many times I reset it or fixed it, I would look down later and it would be off.? I emailed MVMT and within 5 minutes I had a response back from customer service with another way to reset it. I tried, but sadly it didn’t work! So…

10 Highly Recommended Conferences for Young Entrepreneurs in 2016

There are many events geared towards entrepreneurs that take place throughout each year. Here are 10 events worth looking into in 2016.

Relax and Enjoy Life

Sanrdo ‘TrueLove’ sweatshirt, Nasty Gal skirt, Sandro booties, Furla ‘Yoyo’ cosmetic case & ‘Lady’ tassel charm. Athleisure has reached great new heights, allowing comfy clothes to become unlikely staples of sophisticated street style. Isn’t it great? From sweatpants with heels to graphic sweatshirts with skirts, there are endless ways to look chic but relaxed, and actually feel relaxed, too. I’ve barely taken off this adorable Sandro sweatshirt since I snagged it last month, and it looks just as cool with mom jeans and combat boots as it does dressed up with this flouncy skirt.

What to Wear to an Interview: A Fashion Guide

Like many others, you may be fresh out of college wanting to show off your skills and personality to a prospective company, but have your elders in your ear telling you how to dress the part even though it’s completely outdated. You may also have several years of experience in a particular field and are looking to make a career change, but haven’t touched up on what is appropriate to wear to that interview. It’s no secret the times have changed and in large part, thanks to our generation. We are bold, fearless, and determined. Some may categorize our efforts as lazy or unprofessional, mainly in the way we dress or carry ourselves, but we see our clothes and style telling a different story. Just decades ago jeans were more common for a relaxing Saturday morning or a night out at the local country club. Today they are found in many workplaces due to the comfort, diverse style changes, and revised fashion trends. That being said, our generation is making its way through the professional …

Tulle Me About It: One Skirt, Two Ways

Originally posted on mailbox mermaid:
Soft, dainty tulle skirts are, as Prospero famously says in the closing of The Tempest, such stuff as style dreams are made on. (Didn’t you know that Shakespeare’s iconic sorcerer was into pastel fashion?) Not only am I lucky enough to have a tulle skirt of my own–I bided my time for so long, waiting for a Charlotte Russe 50% off sale that finally hit in December–I’ve also discovered two very delightfully different ways of styling it. One matches perfectly with my 70s French Provincial dresser and vanity table (featured in the mirror shot above!) while the other looks vaguely vampire-slayer-at-a-gala. That’s a kind of duality I can live with. Tulle skirt ♥ Charlotte Russe Fake leather (always!) jacket ♥ a charity shop in Edinburgh   Cropped sweater and infinity scarf ♥ XXI Forever, as they’re calling themselves these days Striped crop top ♥ H&M, altered  Rose quartz pendant ♥ a strange, mystical rock shop near Zion National Park, Utah Considering that my second look was vaguely inspired by S1 Buffy’s “Prophecy Girl” attire,…
