It’s been a little while since I posted an episode of my “Fab to Fit” series, but I discovered this hidden little gem as I was going through my video archives. What better time to showcase “How to get Motivated” than right after the New Year? Sometimes we find ourselves getting “stuck” or distracted by other activities that we have going on in our lives that we forget to focus on what’s important. Therefore, today’s post is all about getting motivated and entering the New Year with a plan!
My Steps to Getting Motivated:
1) Make a Plan
2) Set Goals or a Time Frame
3) Go into it with an Open Mind
4) Stay on Schedule – No Distractions!
5) Create a Mood Board
6) Build a Team or Partnership
7) Reward Yourself
What do you like to do to get yourself motivated?
The time has come when we all sit back and think about what we can do, now that we have entered the New Year, to better ourselves with a fresh start to the year. A few of my favorite things to do are to: 1) Do a juice cleanse, 2) Clean out closets or drawers, 3) Donate clothes that I don’t need or wear, 4) Set goals, and 5) Clean the entire home. There’s something refreshing about getting rid of clutter and things that are simply taking up space in the home. It’s also a great feeling to give back to the less fortunate, which sets the year off to a motivational start.
What are some things that you do to begin the new year?
For those who don’t want to go through the tedious process of going to a store, trying on multiple outfits or purchasing an item online only to find out that it doesn’t fit, BeauCoo provides a convenient shopping tool. Viewers can “like” an item of clothing to show love to their fellow BeauCoo-er or “want” the item to place it in a “wish list.” How fab is that?
Anyone who knows me (or follows my blog) should know that I am all for positivity and inspiring others. More specifically, I love to motivate and inspire women to understand their beauty and capabilities as well.
One of my favorite things to do is read from an uplifting book before I go to bed or as soon as I wake up in the morning. I’m one of those people who highlights quotes that I like and then I go back and read them over and over again as the days go on. It’s something that motivates me and keeps my focus.
See below for some of my favorite quotes, currently:
Hey guys and dolls! Today is my “golden” birthday!! For those of you who have never heard of this term before, a golden birthday is when you turn the the same age/number as the date of your birthday. For example, I turned 26 today and my birthday lands on the 26th of June. I am so happy to be where I am in my life and to have the amazing loved ones who surround me. I’ll be celebrating with a few friends tonight at a quick happy hour on the water, but the big celebration will take place this weekend. I planned a private boat ride (although I’m unsure about it due to the weather), dinner at Serendipity 3 (my new favorite restaurant in Miami Beach), and Bamboo Miami Beach. I’ll post a blog about it later next week! For today’s post I’d like to share my “daytime birthday look” of the day.

A few things that inspire me:
|I placed this quote in a large frame, so every time I walk by it I feel inspired. It reads, “If you rejoice in the way things are, the whole world will belong to you – Lao Tzu.”|
|As I’ve mentioned before, I have a little (almost) 9-month-old man who continually inspires me to keep pushing and achieve everything that the world has to offer.|
|When I need some fashion inspiration for looks, I gravitate to these lovely magazines! They inspire some of the looks that I put together.|
It’s Friday, loves! For this week’s round of Friday Favorites, I have included some of my favorite beauty and fashion items. I also added a few healthy lifestyle items. I was not compensated for this blog post nor was I asked to write about the following brands.
|This “Rich Girl” lipstick is one of my favorite beauty items. I use this almost every day! I received this particular one at a fashion show; however, I’m sure they carry it at Sephora or ULTA.|
|Since I am quite the “busy mama” lately, I thought that this planner was cute and keeps me organized. I like to keep my life clean and organized so this can really help a lady out sometimes!|
|Although wearing heels is great, sometimes I need to rock some flats. Therefore, I like to carry these flats around with me from time to time so I can just throw them on if necessary.|
|I’ve been using this Line Stiletto liquid eyeliner by Maybelline for quite some time now. It’s great if you are looking to create a nice cat eye.|
|This purse is the perfect daytime handbag, and I’ve been using it almost every day this week. It was gifted from ALDO.|
