“Who you are speaks so loudly I can’t hear what you’re saying.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Be (B)eautiful: One of the best things you can do when someone is feeling down is to get them to S M I L E. A genuine smile releases endorphins that make you feel good. Be (A)uthentic: Being a big talker is such a turn off. No one likes to hear some one go on and on about what they can do, how great they are, what they have accomplished, who they know etc. Talk less and prove more. Let your actions do all the talking for you. Be (D)etermined:  If you work in a very corporate setting where business attire is a must then I highly recommend you dropping some extra bucks on 1.) a really good suit and 2.) quality button ups and slacks. There is nothing tackier than cheap business clothes. Too tight blazers, flimsy button ups and polyester slacks are a no- go.  Plus a nice suit will last you for anytime you may need to interview or dress up for events and important meetings. It’s a smart investment.

“But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that’s just fabulous.” ~SATC

Be (B)eautiful: The best way to get over a broken heart is to spend time not thinking about it. Time heals all wounds. So make sure to be there for your girls when they need it the most. Ice cream, a few bottles of wine,  good gossip, and a ton of  laughs help heal a wounded heart in no time. Be (A)uthentic: Being clear up front as to what you are looking for when you meet someone is vital. Be honest with yourself- do you really want to settle down or just fool around because that is what he wants? If you’re not feeling it then let him know! Don’t lead him on- it’s just a waste of everyone’s time and a BAD girls time is oh so precious. It should only be spent on those who are  worthy of it! Be (D)etermined: If the guy you are dating is putting very little into the relationship (i.e emotionally, physically, financially, etc) then he should not be the one with the most control and power in …

“A sad thing in life is that sometimes you meet someone who means a lot to you only to find out in the end that it was never bound to be and you just have to let go.”~Unknown

Be (B)eautiful: Even when things may not be working as planned for me I genuinely enjoy seeing my loved ones happy and doing well. Can you say this about yourself? I hope so! Very few people can be happy for others if things aren’t going right in their life and that makes them completely unworthy of being called a B.A.D girl. Be (A)uthentic: Cracking a joke to lighten the mood when something embarrassing happens is such an amazingly sexy skill. If you can  laugh at yourself for doing something silly AND manage to make a joke about it that makes others laugh than you are pretty friggen B.A.D ass in my book! Be (D)etermined: Letting go in a relationship is probably one of the most difficult things in life to do. However, I think it is an even bigger sign of maturity when you can do this because you are wise enough to know that it is for the best. If time apart is what is needed and wanted then let it be. If you …

“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.” ~Author Unknown

Be (B)eautiful: Do you know a young girl who could use some guidance? Perhaps a little sister, cousin, niece, -why not help her overcome an obstacle she may be facing. Whether it be she is too shy, she wants to get in shape, she has trouble talking to boys, wants to audition or try out for a team, she lacks confidence or esteem. Help her to feel good about herself the way you do.  Take her out for lunch and chat- get to know her and understand why she feels the way she does. Then share a similar story about yourself. This will allow her to connect with you and see that you really do understand.  You want to sound like her friend and not an older adult trying to change her. Be (A)uthentic: We have all been guilty of feeling that we just aren’t good enough for something. As a BAD girl this should be a foreign concept for you now. If you want to achieve something, you aren’t afraid to fail in the process. You …

“I’m a B.A.D girl, so I don’t really care for rules.”~ Ms. B

Be (B)eautiful: The ‘Urban Safari’ look is hawt for the summa time. Lots of earthy colors, animal prints, and khaki. Love it! Be (A)uthentic: Rather than allowing others to set the rules for your life, you need to set your own rules – your own standards of greatness. You should be doing what you want, how you want it, the way you want it all while being (b)eautiful, (a)uthentic, and (d)etermined of course. Be (D)etermined: BAD girls know how to create teams of diverse people who are very loyal, yet also challenge and push us to achieve. We make sure to surround ourselves with positive people, who encourage us, and remind us just how amazingly capable we are at getting whatever we want!

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” ~Gandhi

Be (B)eautiful: Being grateful for the things you DO have is essential. Spoiled, selfish, arrogant bitches are not the wave. Be thankful for what is given to you. SAY it. Tell your parents ‘thank you’, your friends ‘thank you’. SHOW it. Give some one a thank you card, bake some cupcakes, get your mom that new lipstick she has been wanting, but hasn’t wanted to spend the money. Do something selfless for someone else who has been so generous towards you. Be (A)uthentic: A BAD girl will eventually forgive, but she wont forget. Don’t waste your time being full of negativity or hatred towards someone. It takes up way too much of your energy and your time is priceless. Whoever hurt you in the first place isn’t worth it. Some things can be repaired and others need to be left alone. So wish them well and MOVE ON. If/when someone asks you about him/her your response should be- “I don’t really care to talk about him/her.” Next topic please. Be (D)etermined: Being healthy is important. …

“There is always 3 sides to every story. Your side, their side and the TRUTH.”

Be (B)eautiful:  As a BAD girl your future is so bright you need shades on at all times :). The Summer is fast approaching so get your hands on a hott new pair! I am currently obsessed with the brand Carrera. Lady Gaga sported a pair of Carrera Champion shades in the ‘Bad Romance‘ video.   Be (A)uthentic: Arguments amongst friends can lead to a real sticky (unwanted) situation. If the argument doesn’t involve you at all, then it is in your best interest to remain NEUTRAL. This means not taking sides- understand where each person is coming from, but try not to side with one person over the other. Like today’s quotes says, there is always 3 sides to a story and it’s not your job to play detective to figure out the truth. Your job is to be a friend to BOTH. Refrain from being involved in what I call frashing (friend bashing).  That is a BAD girl no-no! If you feel the need to do something, plan a get-together where they can …

“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.”

Be (B)eautiful: Sending a text to let your friend know you are thinking about them can make a world of a difference. We all have busy lives and can sometimes neglect some of the people we care most about. It only takes a few seconds to send a quick text: ” I miss you and hope your weekend is a good one!” People genuinely appreciate the small things. Be (A)uthentic: Its never a good idea to talk shit about a friend behind their back. Because I know if you will talk about someone behind their back to me, why wouldn’t you talk bad about me behind my back as well? Most people dont trust a shit talker. So keep your comments to yourself. There are different ways that you can express your feelings about someone without sounding like you are talking bad about them. Be (D)etermined: Making up with someone can be difficult. Your pride can get the best of you. But as a BAD girl, you are always the bigger person. Therefore, show your friend/spouse/significant other/sibling …
