I am sure you have heard it time and time again that every woman should have a little black dress (LBD) as a staple in their wardrobe. The LBD is considered a “go to” for many different occasions including this yuletide season. But, the LBD is not for everyone .
If you are looking for fresh and trendy wear this holiday season think outside the box. Think sheen, shine, sparkle, dazzle and visual interest. Here are some current tips to celebrate the holiday season in style!
Do you ever notice that when we get super busy one of the first things to go is taking care of our bodies? We are on the run so we eat poorly, grab what is quickest or skip meals all together. And, fitting exercise into our demanding schedules seems impossible.
Have you ever been stuck in an area of your life because you have been fighting or pushing against the reality of the situation? You are imposing your “should” or “should not” on the situation. You think about how unfair it is and how it is not supposed to be happening this way . You do not allow it to just be. You may not even realize that you are doing it.
I rarely attend formal events where a floor length gown is appropriate. A floor length gown is called a ballerina length dress. I am not really a floor length gown type of gal. I do love the sleek elegance of a cocktail dress though. Christian Dior was the first to use the term “cocktail dress” to refer to early evening wear in the late 1940s.
A cocktail dress is very versatile. It can easily go from day wear at the office to evening wear. In a professional environment, you could pair a cocktail dress with a fitted jacket or cardigan and low heeled shoes. To spice it up for evening wear, you pair it with stand out accessories and high heels.
Do you ever feel like a 2 year old having a tantrum when things do not go your way?
In general I rarely get angry. I feel irritation and annoyance at times, but this is low level anger that passes quickly. But, oh boy! when I have computer or tech issues, there been times I have wanted to throw my laptop out the window. The curse words have been known to fly. (I know that I am not alone here). And then, my husband tries to help me out and he gets the brunt of my anger.
Even though my anger makes sense because something important to me is being blocked. In this case, I am trying to get my work done for and on my business to create success, but the ****! computer is getting in the way.
Many of my clients are under the misconception that practicing the Law of Attraction along with the other Universal Laws means not allowing for negative emotions. They fear that if they feel emotions that are uncomfortable or painful, then they will attract more things into their lives that they do not like, want or prefer to happen. What I call contrast.
Have you ever met someone who appeared very confident at first and then the more you got to know them you realized they lacked genuine self-confidence? Perhaps, initially they came off quite assertive, even a little aggressive. Yet, deep down they felt small.
Or, you have met someone who is quite capable, competent, intelligent but they doubt themselves all the time. They apologize too frequently and worry too much about upsetting or disappointing others. And, this doubt prevents them from taking on new challenges and growing.
I often say that we have a relationship with everything in our lives, including money. We can determine if we will have a “For better or Worse” relationship with money. This largely depends on the unconscious promises we have made to ourselves and the universe about our ability to create our abundance.
"When I look into the Future it is so bright it burns my eyes!"
Do you believe that we have thousands of potential future selves? In this given moment, you can determine whether you will have a horrible future, a good future or an amazing future and these future selves can manifest in so many ways.
Here we are nearing the end of the summer. It is getting darker earlier in the day again and there is a bit of a chill in the air. The sure sign of Fall is when the kids return to school. Soon, we will be putting our summer clothes away and bringing back our Fall/Winter attire. I find this both sad and exciting.
I am sad that we only have so many warm, outdoor days ahead and I will soon be putting away my summer dresses and sandals for jackets and boots. I am also excited to rediscover what I have stored away in my Winter bin. And, to add to my wardrobe with some new Fall items!
