B.A.D. Girl Tip: How to Control Your Thoughts

All success in life whether material or spiritual starts with the thoughts that you put into your mind every second of every day. Your outer world reflects the state of your inner world. By controlling the thoughts that you think and the way you respond to the events in your life, you begin to control your destiny. True Story. My life has changed for the better the second I started living with a positive mind. How to Control Your thoughts: 1. Recognize when a negative thought is clouding your outlook. 2. Re-think your negative thought and change it to a positive one. 3. Reinforce yourself that the positive thought in your mind is the correct choice. 4. Repeat the thought as many times as necessary until you believe in it wholeheartedly. How do you practice positivity in your life?

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Product Review: Aint Nuttin’ But a Glitter Party.

I finally got my hands (literally) on the Sally Hansen Salon Effects nail polish strips! They are actual strips of real nail polish  that you stick on and fit to your nails.  The best part is that you don’t have to wait for your nails to dry! I don’t know about you, but that is my least favorite part of a manicure, especially when I rush and wind up smudging a freshly done nail. AN-NOY-ING. Each kit contains 16 different sized strips so that you can fit them to your nails. All you have to do is peel the back, fit it to your nail, smooth it out and then file off the remainder of the strip.  It’s so easy even a cave man could do it. No messy nail polish all over your skin; no wasting time while drying, just a straight up party on your nails in under 15 minutes. I’m wit it. Overall, I give the strips an 8 out of 10. They have been on my nails for over 2 weeks. My one complaint …

How to: Keep your thoughts positive, ask questions and make sure you sing at the top of your lungs!

Be (B)eautiful: I absolutely love blasting my favorite song of the moment, singing at the top of my lungs and not caring about what anyone thinks. Its my way of releasing any stress I may have bottled up inside. It also helps to  put me  in an automatic good mood. 🙂 Be (A)uthentic: “Our thoughts create our reality; where we put our focus is the direction we tend to go”  by Peter McWilliams. This quote is oh so true. Its important to keep positive thoughts in and kick negative ones to the gutter! Be (D)etermined: A good question to ask on an interview is “Why is the position currently available?” Your intentions in asking this question is to get insight as to whether this will be a good job for you. The interviewer might tell you that the previous person wasn’t comfortable cold calling and being rejected. If this is the case for you as well then it can help you decide whether or not to accept the position if/when it’s offered to you.  They …

Be (B)eautiful: People that you love and care about deserve to know the truth. Lying to spare someone pain may only lead to a bigger disaster later on. The truth can also be a really heavy burden to bear, so set it free. People may not like to hear it at first, but they will respect your honesty once it all settles. Be (A)uthentic: How dope are these sunglasses designed by Kerin Rose of A-Morir. Her designs have become extremely popular amongst Hollywood’s biggest trend setters like, Lady Gaga, Rhianna, Katy Perry, Fergie, and Nicki Minaj to name a few. All of her pieces are handmade  to order, which I loveeee. These glasses aren’t for everybody, but I think a B.A.D girl will definitely have the confidence and swag to pull a pair off, don’t you? These Swarvoski covered beauties are a nice twist to the ever popular cat eye shades. I love the pink lens! Lace is so sexy and I cant help but think that if I was wearing these that I would …

Be (B)eautiful: Sweatpants, hair tied, no make up on and you should still feel beautiful because YOU ARE! I stumbled upon this Facebook Group called Operation Beautiful and its all about spreading love and making others feel beautiful by writing positive notes  and leaving them around in public places like bathrooms, dorms,  the gym, at your job, on a desk, on someones car, anywhere! Do IT!! Be (A)uthentic: Scarves are my obsession now that the temperatures in NY have started dropping. Scarves may be the only reason I enjoy cold weather to be honest! I found this company called Letau Designs that sells beautiful  hooded and drawstring scarves. As you all know I love a unique fashion find! I have seen hooded scarves before, but the drawstring ones are new to my eyes and I am diggin’ it! What do you ladies think? Be (D)etermined: When networking it’s a good idea to write down on the business cards you receive where it was that  you actually met the person. Was it at a conference, fashion …

“We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee.” ~Marian Edelman

Be (B)eautiful:Unless you have been living under a rock you should know that today is Spirit Day! Spirit Day honors the teenagers who had taken their own lives because of the bullying/hate they received because of their sexuality. But just as importantly, it’s also a way to show the LGBT youth who face the same pressures and bullying, that there is a vast community of people who support them and love them for who they are. I hope you are wearing purple today and if not I hope that your heart beats purple everyday. We are all human beings and no one deserves to be treated differently or tormented for being themselves. Be (A)uthentic: So in the spirit of today (pun intended ;-)) I was looking around for a purple accessory that I can use on a daily basis. Sunglasses are my ultimate favorite accessory. They are pretty much the cherry on top of a perfect look.  I found these purple gems while exploring the Sunglass Hut website. It was so hard to choose just …

“A true heiress is never mean to anyone – except a girl who steals your boyfriend.” ~Paris Hilton

Be (B)eautiful: I love these rain boots from Dollhouse! They are so different from the typical style rain boots everyone rocks now. Very 60’s and very cute! I could see them being worn with jeans or a skirt/dress without looking tacky!     Be (A)uthentic: A B.A.D girl is NOT someone who is deliberately mean and hurtful to others. That person is weak and insecure. A real bad girl is someone who knows when its time to defend herself and when to put people in their place. But she is not the one attacking others for the fun of it. Be (D)etermined: Make an effort to always be on good terms with previous employers/coworkers. This is important for future job opportunities where you may need a reference, a favor, or even a possible business opportunity. It is always smart to maintain your connections with people because you never know where someone may end up (professionally) and how they may be able to help or benefit you  in the future either professionally or personally.
