Good Morning sweethearts! I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far! Today I wanted to post something a little different, if you have been a reader of my blog for some time now you know that I used to incorporate health/wellness into my weekly posts and I kinda miss them! So today we are starting simple with just 5 Simple Ways to Boost your Mood!

This time of year can be extremely hard: exams are coming up, the winter blues are seriously setting in and you are already wondering how it is already the 3rd month of 2017 and you haven’t really accomplished any of your New Years resolutions yet…Well no worries, because these tips are sure to put a smile on your face!

Tip # 1 Go off of social media

Probably the hardest, yet the simplest tip I have on this list. We are a generation attached to our phones, and sometimes it can become to much. Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my Insta-fam and am just so thankful for every single one of you, but sometimes the simple act of logging off and putting down your phone can do wonders for your mood!

Tip #2 Eat Some Happy Foods

Weird I know, but there are some foods that have been proven to improve one’s mood because they increase the levels of Serotonin and other happy hormones in your brain. Try eating some Popcorn, Salmon, Dark Chocolate or Bananas for a simple mood boost!

Tip #3 Go Outside

This tip strongly relates to tip #1, but I find that by removing myself from what is frustrating me instantly puts me in a better mood. So take your dog for a walk,  go for a coffee run or maybe do a little bit of shopping. Anything to take your mind off whatever is bothering you!

Tip #4 Do Something for Someone Else

Have you ever seen that episode of Friends where Joey and Phoebe argue if there is in fact a selfless deed because you always feel better about yourself after? Well Joey is right in this sense, you always feel happier helping someone else. So go and volunteer at an retirement home or a Humane Society, cook dinner for you Grandparents, or simply go to the local park and pick up some trash. It’s the little things that will make the biggest difference!

Tip #5 Watch a Mood-Booster

Tip #5 relates to tip #4, watch a TV show or a Movie that you know will put a smile on your face and make you forget about your problems. My favorites are Friends, Corner Gas, The Pink Panther and Morning Glory! These are all great things to watch when you are in a little bit of a slump!

I hope that these little tips were useful, and today I am wishing you all an amazing day :)

I have never been to Paris, or to Europe for that matter, but I dream of going someday. I picture myself walking along the Parisian streets, enjoy a latte in a little cafe and sitting on the grass in front of the Effiel Tower in this outfit. A simple Striped Off the Shoulder Top paired with some High Waist Denim Jeans screams tres chic to me! I added on this cute Bandanna Scarf for an even more European feel, and completed the look by throwing on some Converse Sneakers ( because I hear all you do is walk and the cobblestones can be brutal on your feet ), and this gorgeous Status Anxiety Clutch.

Have you ever been to Paris?

The end of August and the first few weeks of September can be fairly tricky and a little awkward when it comes to deciding what to wear. You still have your summer pieces out but are slowly transitioning into your fall wardrobe as the weather begins to drop. For today’s look I am showcasing how you can transition your florals into the fall season by simply adding on a Leather Vest ( or Jacket ) as well as some darker accessories such as this Black Felt Fedora & my Black Lace Up Heels, making this beautiful Summer Floral Romper perfect for the upcoming fall season.

 It’s almost fall ya’ll, and I could not be more excited!!! Don’t get me wrong I love summer: the shorts, the sun & the carefree days, but I live for fall! Now, where I live fall comes early and doesn’t stay very long, the tree down the street has already changed color, so in this short amount time I will be indulging like crazy in all the goodness that fall has to offer.

For today’s transitioning-into-fall look I styled my brand new Faux Suede Moto Jacket with a Blush Pink Camisole and my Classic Levi’s 501 Denim Cut Off Shorts. To complete the look I decided to throw on my Blush Pink Sneakers and some Simple Gold Rings as well as the two necklaces that I always wear.

Happy Wednesday
