B.A.D. Girl Link Love: Surreal Places, Selfies & Things to Stop Doing

Hey B.A.D. Girls! I hope you are having a great week! I’ve decided this week that I really want to make an effort to live in the moment more so to help me with that I am saying “yes” to any and everything that I want to do (within reason).

TLT: Be Interested but Not Fake!

One of the most important keys to a building a successful relationship is your ability to show a sincere interest in both the person and the things that are important to that person. When you express genuine interest in someone you give them a sense of importance, well being and value. However, it is equally as important that you are not fake with it. Don’t pretend to love politics when the only “politics” you care about involve Olivia Pope! Don’t pretend to be okay with the fact that he spends all his free time playing video games when you secretly want to throw his controller out with the recyclable! When we pretend it’s only for so long until the truth catches up to us. And it will, which will then cause feelings to be hurt and an argument to erupt. Be open minded and willing to learn or try new things, but don’t fake an interest just to get on his good side. You can still respect their interests even if they aren’t of interest to …

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Realize They are Valid

B.A.D. Girl Lifestyle Tip: Realize Your Dreams are Valid I love being inspired by successful people and I was moved by Lupita Nyong’os‘ acceptance speech during last nights Academy Awards. It’s so easy to get lost in the idea that our dreams are just that; something we fantasize about but never really attain because dreams by definition are “not real”.  I, however  want to be one of those people who validates their dreams and I hope you do too. Let’s get it! Are you working towards your dreams? p.s. Lupita and Camila Alves were my best dressed faves from last night! xo Nicole Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram  Youtube  SHOP

B.A.D. Girl Style: The All Seeing Eye

If I were a celebrity people would probably think I am promoting “evil” by wearing this top, but I would like to go on the record and just say I am wearing it simply because I think it’s dope! I love the gold detail and the shirt is really comfortable too. Civil Clothing Cap, Garage Sweatshirt,  Zara Vest, Urban Outfitters Jeans, Pink & Pepper Boots We had “nice” weather last weekend which for us was about 50-something degrees so I ventured out and left my winter coat behind hoping to summon a quicker return of Spring. However, it was still too cold for me so I threw on my Civil Clothing cap and this was the outcome. It’s probably one of the most “street” looks I’ve worn since I don’t even know when, but hopefully you guys dig it! What are you wearing today? xo Nicole Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram  Youtube  SHOP

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Get Your Mind Right to Get In Shape

B.A.D. Girl Lifestyle Tip: The law of attraction states that what we think about and more importantly put feeling behind we bring about in our lives so everyday I make a conscious effort to think and feel good as much as I can. In doing this I have seen amazing results with my fitness goals and I want to share with you guys what I have been doing besides eating better and exercising. I have made the word “weight” a taboo. I no longer use the word weight because if you constantly worry about putting on weight or gaining weight or even losing weight the universe has no choice but to give you WEIGHT! I don’t feel Guilt. If I want to enjoy a piece of cake or order french fries with my meal I do it and I enjoy it and I don’t allow myself to feel guilty for it. Feeling guilty will attract more guilt in the form or weight gain! I use positive mantras. “I am healthy” and “I am slim” are my go-to’s. …

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Know How to Communicate with Your Kiss

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day I figured we could talk about good ol’ kissing and how it can be used to get us what we want and avoid what we dont! Kissing is a form of non-verbal communication so it’s important to be mindful of the message you are sending when you plant one on somebody. Every B.A.D. Girl should know how to kiss in a way that communicates clearly what you would and wouldn’t like to happen next otherwise you might find yourself in an uncomfortable situation. Each “type” of kiss sends its own distinct message to the receiver, which is super important when you begin dating someone new and are still trying to figure out your feelings. You don’t want to have the guy think you are ready to take things up a notch when in reality you’re just not that interested. Be in control of the kissing so you can set the tone. It is also important to keep in mind the message you are sending when in a long term relationship …

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Have a Go-To Drink

B.A.D. Girl Lifestyle Tip: Have a Go-To Drink I, myself am a Captain Morgan and cranberry kind of girl. When I drink wine I like Pinot Grigio. When I drink beer I always go for a Blue Moon (with an orange) and seltzer water with lemon for my non alcoholic beverage of choice. When you have a go-to drink, you come off as a woman who knows what she wants.  So the next time you find yourself out on a date or at an important business dinner order your drink without looking at the menu. You might be feeling nervous but at that moment you appeared confident with your decision. That’s a good way to start! What is your go-to drink? xo Nicole Let’s Connect:  Bloglovin’  Facebook  Twitter  Instagram  Youtube  Shop

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Do some MORE

B.A.D. Girl Lifestyle Tip: No one told me adulthood meant I would find myself with less and less time to do the things I actually LOVE. That I would be so consumed by other “things” that reading a good book would be hard to do. I’m challenging you to do more of what you love and less of what you hate starting right now!

B.A.D. Girl Link Love: Kourtney K’s Home, a Personality Test & Knowing Your Rights

Whatsup BG’s! I hope you all are having a great week! We got another snow storm here in NY so I spent a lot of time indoors and started working on my goal to read more books this year. I decided on the fiction novel  Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and I really like it so far! I’m also looking for book recommendations so please feel free to share! Here are this weeks links I am loving! Beautiful: I don’t have a place of my own to decorate yet so for now I enjoy lusting over Pinterest worthy interior design photos  like these from inside Kourtney Kardashians home. I’m Obsessed!  (via Instyle) Authentic: I’m obsessed with understanding who I am and why I do or feel the way I do so when I took this free personality test I was shocked at how freaking accurate it was. My personality type is very rare with only 4.3% of people in the U.S. being INFP so its even crazier that my bf got the same type! (Via 16 Personalities) Determined: …
