B.A.D. Girl Style: Oh, baby!

I attended a baby shower for my beautiful sorority sister, Nazly, this past weekend. She is expecting her first child and it’s a girl! YAY! I wore a daisy print dress from Zara with a lace blazer and Prabal Gurung x Target heels. My lovely friend looked amazing in a dress she scored on Gilt! As part of my gift I made baby girl her first studded piece, a turband! It was the tiniest one Ive ever made and I think it came out friggen adorable! I can’t wait to see the little princess wear it! The baby shower was a blast and I love any opportunity to spend time with my sorority sisters! We are all so excited for the newest arrival! Have you been to a baby shower recently? xx Nicole Let’s Connect: Bloglovin Facebook Twitter Instagram Advertisements

TLT: Create a Gratitude List

image via It’s said that ” Energy flows, where attention goes” and that you get what you focus on so stop dwelling on all of the annoying things that may be going on with your relationship and/or your significant other and start paying attention to the good things. Creating a “gratitude list” will allow you to put your energy into the positive aspects of your relationship and remember all of the wonderful qualities that you love about your partner. Everyday for the next 30 days write down one new thing on your list. The KEY here is to focus your thoughts and energy on the items you add to your list only. You will start to receive more of the good while the not so good start to disappear. ANDDDD if for some reason your list is coming up short it may be time for you to reevaluate your current relationship. Just saying. P.s. You can also create a “gratitude list” for your personal life too! What is something you are grateful for?

Why It’s OK To Celebrate Valentine’s Day

In a fast paced crazy world I feel like Holidays gives us the opportunity to take time out and make an extra effort to show our appreciation for our vast blessings and good fortune EVEN IF we make an effort to do it on the daily.

TLT Tip: Never Say Never

Unless you’re Taylor Swift  and getting paid a shit ton of money to sing about never ever getting back together I highly recommend eliminating this and other extreme language (always, never, ever) from your vocab especially when you’re  dealing with the opposite sex. (1.) It’s a sure fire way to piss someone off and (2.) It is usually not a 100% true statement or accusation I mean lets be honest its common to use these words because we think it will help to prove a point during an argument. When in reality it probably just ends up making the person on the receiving end super mad. So try to make a conscious effort to not use these extreme words the next time you and the boy are having a ” lovers quarrel.” Do you find yourself using these words often?

BAD Girl Tip: Realize You Can’t Always Win

As B.A.D. Girls we always want to be right, but we have to drop our egos when we are in a relationship. When it comes time to resolve a dispute with your s/o look for a solution that will allow the relationship as a whole to move forward versus a solution that benefits one person over the other. It’s about the two of you as a couple. Period. How do you resolve disputes with your s/o?  xx Nicole

B.A.D Girl Tip: Realize You Can’t Always Win

In order for the relationship to succeed you have to do what is best for the two of you as a couple.  When the relationship wins it grows, but when you try to be the winner you pull away at it’s petals and keep it from blossoming. So next time you find yourself in a complicated situation take a second to clear your head and realize what is more important; the success of your relationship or being the winner of an argument? xx Nicole

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Love Yourself First

Being in a relationship is hard work and it is even harder if you aren’t confident in who you are as a woman. You need to be completely in love with yourself so that you can properly love your partner. You can’t fill in missing voids or solve your problems with a relationship. Love should be an addition to your life to make it complete, not the only solution.  xx Nicole 

Couple of The Month: Edita & Ahmed

SMB:  Firstly, tell us how you two met each other.  We both were on vacation back in 2004 at a resort in Egypt. He was there with friends for his uni break  and I was with my mum who  decided it was ok if I skipped school for a week in the horrid month of February.  It was in the hotel lobby where we first met each other. He made the first move to talk to me.  Can I just call out that it was right after the beach with sand in my hair and completely make-up-less!  SMB: Tell us about your first date!  E: It was out of this world! As soon as we met, it felt like we knew each other all along. We were talking so much and just discovering how many things we had in common.  SMB: Where did you go or what did you do on the date?  We literally went for a walk around the whole resort  where we were vacationing. We walked for miles, talked and laughed like …

TLT: 3 Things About Men

1. Men are simple beings.  Men tend to be logical thinkers and they keep their emotions out of it. Emotions are what make things complicated. 2. Men don’t change and us nagging them to do so only makes things worse. Yes, people grow and mature, but the foundation and personality that they developed will not waiver.  3. In order for a guy to commit you need to make it a requirement for him or it won’t happen. What do you think of these “facts” about men? Truth?
