Make It Happen!

Every now and then I need to seek motivation. Life is hard and it throws obstacles your way no matter how hard you try to maneuver around them.  It really helps to read positive words of encouragement. So I hope these motivate you to have an awesome week! Go out there and start towards your dreams. Take that first step! Do YOU! xx Nicole All images were found on Pinterest

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Build YOUR Brand

We each have our own unique “brand” and how we choose to present ourselves determines the message our personal brand is delivering to the world. This is similar to how people covet specific fashion brands because they exude quality and authenticity.  People should want to be around you and value your presence because you are a quality individual.  Share With Me: What does your personal brand say about you?  p.s. Follow my new fashion brand on Twitter! xx

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Always Be a Better YOU

Purposely trying to be better or outdo others is not a BAD girl move. Its actually a sign of being insecure and that we are NOT, right?! So use others successes as motivators and nothing more.  We all have our own unique destiny and as long as we work towards our goals we will achieve them. 🙂 Tell me what motivates you? P.S. Last day to ENTER MY GIVEAWAY!!!

The end of the year is rapidly approaching, but don’t stress you still have time to cross off some of the goals on your list.  1. Keep it small or get an early start on something big right now! Set out to cross off some of those smaller items on your list, like sorting thru your closet and donating old items or finally learning how to make a cheesecake.  This is also a good time to get a head start on some of your goals you have set for next year. The early bird catches the worm, right? 2. Tell someone about your goal. Saying your goal out loud helps bring it to life and make it feel more tangible.  3.
